One-level 3 bedroom home with PRIVATE, heated pool, just steps to the beach
STYLE, EASE, and COMFORT -- This one-level (NO STAIRS) duplex home, was completely redone in 2011, and just "refreshed" in 2016. You'll enjoy the “beachy” theme, an updated, well-equipped kitchen (dishwasher, stainless steel appliances and granite counters), and a washer/dryer so you can pack light. The King Master Bedroom (with en suite bathroom), Queen Guest Room, and Twin Bedroom provide comfortable sleeping for 6 guests.
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION -- With less than a 2 minute walk to the white sand beaches of the Gulf and just a short walk to Publix, drugstores, restaurants, and the Free Trolley stops, you will find everything you might need without ever having to get in a car (which would be parked in one of 3 off-street parking places).
NEED A BEACH BREAK? -- Relax in the fenced-in, private backyard with your own (not shared) heated pool. The waterfall, swim-up seating area, and sun-shelf wading area add to the ambiance of the lushly landscaped backyard, with gas grill and outdoor patio seating.
FOR YOUR ENTERTAINMENT -- You’ll be entertained and connected with new large curved-screen TV in the living area, flat screen TVs in all 3 bedrooms, Blue-Ray DVD player, and Wi-Fi. The private garage stores your beach cart, beach umbrella and sand toys, as well as 2 bicycles for your island adventures.

About Linda Carmon
We’re just two lifelong New Englanders who, after 45 years of owning a family business and raising 4 children, are looking forward to a time when we can fully enjoy the blessings of family, health, and resources that God has given us, and do that in a little piece of His paradise. We love every season on AMI, so we come down as often as possible, but hope to become true “snowbirds” in a few years.
Linda Carmon purchased this House in 2012
Why Linda Carmon chose Holmes Beach
Parents of 4 sons, and grandparents of six beautiful granddaughters, we wanted a place to lure everyone away for lasting family memories. Like most people, we fell in love with Anna Maria Island on our first visit, and by the second, we were looking for our own home. We actually have two homes so we can spread out when we’re all together, and Palms Beach House West is perfect for one of our son's family of five. The total family gatherings are rare, so in the meantime, we enjoy sharing this great vacation retreat with other families and couples visiting AMI.
What makes this House unique
Location, location, location – literally steps (200) from the beautiful Gulf beach and easy walking distance to Publix, drugstores, and restaurants. From the nearby Free Trolley stop, you can cover the entire island, from Bean Point in Anna Maria to Coquina Beach, enjoying the unique character of each section of the island.

Wonderful in every way!
Linda’s home was exactly as described- clean, comfortable, and well appointed with a superb location. The pool was great and had a lot of afternoon shade (which our 4-yr old loved), but the east end of the pool had sun until about 4 and the sun deck until a little after 5 for us sun lovers. It’s also protected from the wind which is nice if it’s not a great beach day. The location was perfect- it was so nice to be able to walk to Publix and use the trolley to get around the rest of the island. Skinny’s and the Manatee Beach Cafe both had great food within walking distance. The wi-fi and washer and dryer were nice amenities, and the garage had a wide selection of beach chairs (quality Tommy Bahamas), a good umbrella, various floaties, and lots of sand toys. We loved Anna Maria and loved staying in Linda’s home- we hope to go back!
Wonderful home and location!
Everything for a great vacation was provided!
Awesome beach house.
My stay at this home was everything I expected it to be and more. The home is equipped with everything you could need. Everything is either within walking distance or you can get there by the trolley. The pool was great. The walk to the beautiful beach was great. Having Manatee Beach nearby gave us access to music, food, shopping. Would highly recommend for a relaxing beach vacation.
We loved the location of this home as much as we loved the home itself. The home is located in the middle of the island which made it an easy bike ride or drive to anything on the island. It is only about a block from Publix which is so convenient for picking up items. There are restaurants, ice cream shops, the free trolley, etc. within walking distance. A short walk and you can listen to the music while sipping your drink at the tiki bar at Manatee Beach. And, best of all you are just a short block from the beach.
The home is beautiful and just like the pictures. The owner, Linda, goes out of her way to make sure that you have a wonderful stay in her home. There is a garage with bikes, chairs, umbrellas, beach toys for your use. And on top of all that there is a beautiful, tropical, heated pool to relax in.
We loved our stay here and will definitely be back!
Perfect vacation spot for my wife and I.
This was our first visit to AMI and wont be our last! A perfect location on the island, any of your needs are available close by. Linda provides her guests with detailed information about restaurants,fun things to do and anything else you might need. Linda has all the bases covered. Perfect location for families or couples.Our only complaint was we had to return home early to take care of family issues.

Gorgeous home and within 30 minutes of anything you could imagine.
Let me start by saying the owner Linda is spectacular!!! She not only was such a gracious host but gives you a ton of detailed information regarding her home and Anna Marie Island, as well as some close surrounding areas. The home for us was absolutely gorgeous but yet made us feel relaxed, comfy and at home which is what we desperately needed on this vacation. I can not thank Linda enough and would highly recommend this property for your next Florida vacation. You won't regret it 😊�.
