Overview

Holmes Beach House Rental Photos and Description

5 Minutes walk to the beach

Approaching Great Palms you might initially think that its name applies only to the mature trees swaying gently in the breeze at the front of this beautiful modern home. But step inside and you will discover just how great it is in a whole other sense. Recently refurbished and equipped to a very high standard, this superb split-level property offers everything you could want from a luxury vacation home – and so much more.

Outside: Great Palms hosts the largest private pool on the island (allegedly). Around the pool there are also six sun loungers on which to put your feet up in between dips in the water. There is a comfortable seating area under the upper deck, with three outdoor sofas and two overhead fans to keep you cool on those long, hot Anna Maria Island days. Also on the lower floor is a double garage with electric opening doors and space for two cars.

Beaches: The beaches have the whitest sand which slopes gently and safely into the blue Gulf Sea with the most amazing sunsets. Only 5 minutes walk from the house.

Flights from the UK via Gatwick airport land daily at Tampa International airport less than 1 hour drive away. Orlando is only a 2 hour drive away, perfect for those wanting a 2 centre break. Car hire can be booked from Tampa airport.

Interior: The light and airy open-plan living area is the perfect place to unwind with a good book, indulge your passion for cooking in the well-equipped and spacious kitchen, or put your feet up, sink into the huge sofas and watch the 50inch TV with cable and DVD player. The designer dining table seats eight in comfort, but for more informal meals there is a breakfast bar as well. With its pure white walls, high ceilings and open-plan layout, the living area conveys and wonderful feeling of space and the bedrooms continue the theme. From the sumptuous linens, to designer bathrooms and plenty of storage, no expense has been spared in creating something truly memorable.

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a weeks stay at this amazing house. It had plenty of room for all 8 of us and even the pool wasn't crowded with all of us in there.

The island is truly beautiful and we will definitely return.

Beautiful home with plenty of space

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at Great Palms and had a wonderful stay. We had a party of eight: five adults and three teenagers. It was a perfect space for all of us. The house centers around a very large private pool that is completely enclosed. Needless to say, we spent a lot of time in the pool when it was too hot for the beach or later at night. The house is very convenient to the beach which is beautiful. It was a five minute walk at best. The sunsets are spectacular. All of us agreed that we would return to this house. When we went to use the grill, it was out of propane. I contacted Helena, the caretaker, and she responded very quickly with a new tank of propane. Thank you Tinkler Family for a wonderful experience on Anna Maria Island.

This home was a lovely and spacious home. It was a perfect place to relax and come home to after a day at the beach or a day of sightseeing. Would recommend this place to others and more importantly, I will rent this home again!

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay on Anna Maria Island. When we got there, the place was mint clean.The house was beyond beautiful and large! The master bedroom was simply amazing and the kitchen was so nice and spacious! A great place for families-especially kids! If we had specific questions about the house during our stay, we could just check the Owners Manual-great resource! The house made our vacation in Florida even more enjoyable. We really hope to stay here again. Thank you to the owners!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Great Palms for 4 nights (Weds-Sun). We had a group of adults and a 7 month old baby on the trip. This place couldn't have been more perfect of a setup for us. Very short walk to the beach, the pool area is everything you'd ever want, lots of space for everyone, and more than enough bathrooms! All the pool toys and beach gear you'd want is with wagons to haul to the beach. The house was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen is huge with tons of counter space and seating. We also enjoyed the large tv in the family room with lots of cable channels for watching playoff hockey :)
