Holmes Beach Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, 3 Bedrooms + sofa bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Welcome to Seaglass!!

This home was completely remodelled from the ground up, so everything is new. The designer decor is sophisticated, yet fun and perfect for the island atmosphere. The new kitchen with granite counters, beautiful glass tile and beautiful stainless steel appliances is equipped with indoor and outdoor dishes, a blender to make those perfect Margaritas and everything you need to make your meals special. The two brand new bathrooms, are tastefully decorated with granite counters, a skylight in the main bathroom and a ship's window in the shower of the master. The three bedrooms are all equipped with flat screen T.V's with hundreds of channels at your finger tips. All the closets are equipped with organizing systems to make unpacking a breeze. There is a washer and dryer, so you never have to settle for dirty clothes or wet towels.

Once you are settled in, your choices are endless: sit and relax on the loungers by the heated pool, read the newspaper on the pool sundeck with your feet in the water or enjoy a drink at the table in the pool. When you are ready for more action, pack the beach cart which carries your chairs, beach umbrella, beach towels and toys, for a short 3 min stroll to the beach, and settle in for the afternoon. You will never get enough of the beautiful white sand, the precious dunes and the dolphins who jump in the horizon. Whether it be collecting seashells, watching the seabirds, making sandcastles, watching the sunset, body surfing, snorkelling, flying a kite, or swimming there is never enough time to get it all done. And who knows maybe you will be one of the lucky ones to see the turtles hatch.

When you need a break from the sun, you can walk to many restaurants and bars, shops, liquor store, gyms, banks etc. A very nice grocery store, Publix, is a few minutes drive away or 15 min walk.. You can also take the free trolley around the island, we love to take it after dinner to get ice cream at Scoops and walk out on the Pier. For those quiet moments indoors we have a Wii with some popular games, HD TV, DVD player, board and strategy games, as well as a library you can enjoy.

For those who want more adventure there are so many attractions: fishing tours, golfing, shopping, mini-putt, museums, aquariums etc. So much to do, you will need to extend your stay over and over.

The pure white sand beaches of beautiful Anna Maria Island are calling to you to enjoy your holiday here in paradise. Once you arrive to your beautiful vacation rental, you will understand why we fell in love with this place and like us, may never want to leave.

Whether you are visiting us from near, from across the country or all the way from Germany or the United Kingdom, you will enjoy all that our place has to offer.

About Jennifer

We live in the suburbs of Montreal, Canada. Our family enjoys the outdoors & our 2 boys are avid hockey players. We are an active family, enjoy sports and love our trips to Anna Maria Island.

Jennifer purchased this bungalow in 2011

Why Jennifer chose Anna Maria Island

We absolutely fell in love with Anna Maria Island the first time we visited with our 2 sons. The never ending white sand beaches, the friendly and casual atmosphere, the unique shopping and great restaurants were all attractions. Anna Maria Island was away from the high rises and felt cozy and relaxed. We couldn't stop thinking about how much fun we had. After a few more visits, we realized we wanted to be part of this beautiful island, and set our sights on finding our vacation home.

It was important for us that we were close to the beach and not have to cross a busy road. After spending several vacations in two storey houses we realized how much we liked single floor living. It was so convenient to have the kitchen facing onto the pool to get snacks and drinks, and if one of the kids wanted some downtime watching T.V we could still see them from the pool area.

This particular home was perfect for us. Being absolutely brand new it has all the updated features such as beautiful tile floor, granite in kitchen and bathrooms, skylights, new furniture and appiances.The privacy in the backyard is wonderful and you feel as if you are in your own paradise surrounded by luscious gardens and palm trees. A heated pool was a must, the table and sundeck in the pool were added bonuses. We really appreciate the style of the home which suits beach living. It is new, modern with a sophisticated beach style.

What makes this bungalow unique

Our most memorable moments have been with our boys relaxing by the pool, swimming in the ocean and collecting shells. It is hard to imagine improving on perfection. Each time I wonder how our next vacation can possibly be as great as our last. However, each time we vacation here we discover a new restaurant, a new activity, or another area to explore. We really appreciate being able to walk to some of the best restaurants on the island. Eat Here is a favorite of ours. We always find it a challenge to decide what activities to do first! Walk on the beach, swim in the pool, fish off the pier, boogie board in the ocean, shop at the local stores or just relax at home and read a book!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great location. Stylish interior (finally an accommodation not in "Key West" style). High quality furniture and beds. All in all - splendid!

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

"Best vacation ever" according to our 2 university aged daughters.

The property is just as described and pictured ... if not better. It doesn't get any better than having your own private, tropical paradise in the backyard with the white sand beach just a short walk away. We had to talk ourselves into leaving the pool and going to the beach, even tho the beach is also beautiful and uncrowded.

The house is very spacious, comfortable and well equipped. Property is absolutely gorgeous. Location is great, as is very quiet neighborhood and close to everything. Many nice 'extras' that we appreciated ... the Wii games, all the beach accessories including the beach cart. Was so nice not to have to pack/bring all that from home.

The owners were very good to deal with. And the property management company was very helpful and checked in with us a couple times to make sure all was well.

We highly recommend the property and hope it works out for a return visit, as we absolutely loved our week at 'Seaglass'.

Wonderful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week's stay and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was Spring Break so the island was very crowded but it was quiet in the house and on the nearby beach. The location of the house was great. It was a short bike ride to restaurants, gift shops and the beach. By car, we could get to the "downtown" area on Pine Ave or the nearby Publix grocery story in just a few minutes.

Everything the owner described about the house and why they chose Anna Maria Island was spot on. The layout of the house was perfect for our family. The pool right off the kitchen and the nice supply of plastic dishes made family pool time so enjoyable. The furnishings in the house and by the pool were very nice and our daughter loved the tv in her room. The Wii was great in the evenings and on the one rainy day. The king mattress in the master bedroom needs to be replaced soon as it is saggy on the sides. On the up-side, the new master bedding is much prettier than what is pictured.

We enjoyed eating at the Rod and Reel Pier and Havana Cabana. Both are very casual with tasty food which is what we were looking for. Sunset at the public beach park a few blocks south was very nice. Ice cream, music and the playground made for a fun family evening. We took a sightseeing boat tour with Captain Casey which left from the inlet just a few blocks north on Marina Dr (inquire at Bait and Tackle shop). He was very laidback and fun to be around. We saw dolphins and collected shells and sand dollars on a sandbar. The beach cart and chairs were great. It made the short walk to the beach so easy.

The property management company was a dream to work with.

Thanks for a great stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your wonderful review. We are really glad you enjoyed your stay and felt the house was well represented. We try to keep everything updated and replace items regularly, as we too have high standards when we visit our home. I love the new bedding in the master too!

Charming Holmes Beach Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

The home and setting are absolutely perfect! Located on a quiet side street in Holmes Beach, we were the only two people walking to the beach each day. The wonderful beach cart (provided, see pictures) held towels, beach umbrella, beverages, snacks and chairs. On the beach, we felt like we were in a Corona beer commercial! Well, minus the beer as there is no alcohol allowed! We realized after our first night that we could walk to Minnie's for breakfast each morning and Hurricane Hanks or Lobstah for dinner each evening. Though we did try a few other restaurants, for the most part we left the rental car parked in the driveway! The pool is perfect and the privacy amazing. The landscaping is very lush and well maintained. The furnishings are lovely and other than two "seniors" having difficulty figuring out the TV remote, everything was truly outstanding. There were other homes featured on VRBO in the area and one afternoon while driving around the Island, we spotted a couple of them - no comparison! We aren't the type who enjoy staying in a condo and sharing a pool, so this bungalow was perfect for us. The pictures are spot on and this home was spotless! It is very spacious so while it was just my husband and I staying here, a larger group would be very comfortable. We hope to go back as often as we can - absolutely loved this place!
