Why The Owner chose Anna Maria Island

My grandparents had a 2nd home on the island. Growing up our family would come to visit them. I have loved the island ever since.

What makes this townhome unique

Relax, relax relax. Such a short walk to the beach to watch the most spectacular sunsets, enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of wine on the front patio or relax in the back yard. This particular unit has an outdoor dining table with umbrella, gas bbq and large fenced in side yard where children can play. There is also an outdoor shower in the back to rinse the sand off when returning from the beach.

The Island Townhouse was perfect.

  • 5 of 5

The Townhouse was immaculately clean and had everything we needed for our stay. The beds were comfy and the common areas bright and spacious. There's a lovely, private patio out back with a shower. The beach is, as said, 200 steps away. It's a beautiful, uncrowded beach and the owner provided beach chairs and an umbrella. The area is less touristy than most parts of the island, so wonderfully quiet at night, yet all you need is within walking distance of the townhouse. The Ugly Grouper (restaurant/bar) is less than a 5 minute walk away and well worth several trips. Great music and the best grouper sandwich I've ever had. Should you wish to visit the busier parts of the island, and you should, it's a wonderful island, there's a free trolley stop about a block away. The location of the townhouse is just perfect - away from the hustle and bustle but not far away.

Perfect and spotless

  • 5 of 5

What a great find. Perfect location. Restaurants within walking distance.

Home was well equipped. Lacked for nothing.

Beds and linens in great condition.

Only negative is I believe DVD player was not hooked up properly (no fault of owner).

Despite TS Hermine we had a fabulous time and will certainly rent again!

Best access to beach and trolley stop.

Thank you Barb for sharing your home with us😊😍

Amazing vacation in a wonderful townhouse

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's 3rd stay at Barbara's townhouse and we just love it! Everything is exactly as described and the beach is so close by. The house was super clean and has everything you would need in your own home. We made use of the beach chairs that were provided in the outdoor storage area and the outdoor shower was great to rinse off the sand. Kitchen is fully stocked with great cookware and having the washer and dryer right there is such a plus when you are having to wash swim suits and beach towels all the time! We are already planning our stay for next July.

Love Holmes Beach and this Townhouse!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Barb's townhouse. My husband and I came down last May and loved it. So, we brought our kids down this May. We had another delightful stay! Barb is very accommodating and I would highly recommend the townhouse to anyone! Thanks again for another wonderful vacation!
