About michelle

I live 1 block from the resort and I am constantly being drawn to the ocean and the beach.

michelle purchased this condo in 2012

Why michelle chose Holmes Beach

We have a great management company downstairs that has done a magnificent job in the last 4 years.

What makes this condo unique

Not too big -a place where you can relax and you can see your kids play on the beach or in the pool safely. Graet place to get away with your one and only for that special weekend or week.

Incredible View!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in a unit on the first floor of this condo for our 10 year anniversary. As soon as we walked in we were greeted by the most wonderful view. You can't beat beach front! The studio was a good size, attractive, clean, and stocked with everything that we needed for our week-long stay (including beach chairs, beach umbrella, and a cooler). There was a small issue with a noisy air-conditioning unit that we were alerted to as soon as we arrived, but the owner came by herself to explain it was being repaired asap, and it was. :). The location was great. We walked downstairs to the beach (with our beach chairs and wine) every night to watch the sunset, and it was just a quick drive to the shops and restaurants...we probably could have walked or taken advantage of the free trolley but found driving easier. The only issue my husband had was that he had trouble sleeping. While the bed was huge and as soft as a cloud (perfect for me), my husband is twice my size and said it was too soft for him. Overall though, loved our stay in this condo and Anna Maria Island! Thanks, Michelle!

Loved the property and AMI

  • 5 of 5

Michelle was very easy to work with regarding reservations and answering any questions about the stay or island. We had a WiFi issue (we wanted to post pictures of our stay) and Michelle immediately came over with a new box in an attempt to improve the reception. The WiFi was still a little slow at certain times of the day and other times it was great.

The property was great, clean and just perfect for two people. All of the essentials were provided (bring your own beach towel) allowing us to buy groceries and save $$ on eating out. The view of the beach of beautiful. The sunset was blocked by a house on the beach but it's only a few steps to watch the sunset on the beach, this was my favorite time of the day and better to watch the sunset on the beach anyway. Beaches were great and clean, water was so clear. It was a holiday weekend so it was quite busy but after Monday the beach and island got a little quieter. Check-in and check-out was easy.

I would recommend considering one of Michelle's units if you are visiting AMI. The service and experience was fantastic. Thanks Michelle!!!

Bradenton Beauty!!

  • 5 of 5

Our first time in Bradenton and renting an efficiency. We couldn't have been happier! Beautiful location and condo. It was supplied with everything we needed right down to a chip clip! The pool was wonderful and the beach amazing! The location was perfect as we were attending a wedding less than a mile away. There is a free trolley that runs from six AM to ten PM that was fun to ride and so convenient. I can't say enough good about this rental! We will definitely be back! Also got to meet the owner, Michelle, which was a pleasure and very informative. Thanks Michelle till we meet again! From Donna in NY

Excellent room, great view, clean. Will be back!

  • 5 of 5

The room was just as described, excellent view! Clean, all was just as we were told it would be. Met Michelle briefly, she works hard to ensure guests have what they need. We really enjoyed our time here, the island is fantastic! Everything is close and this location was super convenient. Wif in the roomi was sketchy, could'nt get to connect to my laptop and phones were hit and miss. But hey, its a vacation, so we didnt miss it that much! Also had a smoker in the room below us on the last day, which made hard to enjoy the balcony. Overall we are very happy and are looking forward to a return trip.

Great location on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I have stayed at one of Michelle's units at Club Bamboo. It is a perfect place for me. It is right on the beach and the location is perfect! A nice quiet area, but very easy to get to the Bridge Street area either by using the trolley or walking. There are also places to the north that are easy to get to by using the trolley if one wishes. The units are very clean and very comfortable. I especially enjoyed sitting on the patio overlooking the gulf in the mornings and evenings. I got to meet Michelle this time and she was so friendly and easy to talk to. The price is also very reasonable. I am already looking forward to my next visit!
