Overview

Holmes Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Just a few steps to the beautiful powder-soft, white-sand Anna Maria Island Beach. This immaculate and inviting condominium is just one cottage away from being on the sand - but you save plenty!

August weeks, with a Saturday check in and out, are on sale for $700, a $300 savings

The large roof-top deck has a full, unobstructed gulf view, as shown in the photo - so why pay more? Relax and enjoy the sunset from the deck overlooking the beach. Lots of advertisements say they are 'close to the beach,' but do they have this view from our sundeck? The beach is literally just steps away, with no streets to cross, no complexes to wander through. You are right there!

The complex is a small, eight unit complex, with its own heated swimming pool - so no crowds. The complex is easy to find - just two-tenths of a mile past the bridge to the island.

This third floor, large condo (1400 square feet) is a 'home away from home' with many amenities. There are two very spacious bedrooms that can sleep six: the master bedroom has a California king-size bed, the second also has a king-size bed, and there is a fold-out double twin bed. Each bedroom has its own full bath. The two enclosed lanais provide a nice reading area in the morning sun.

The central dehumidifier and seven ceiling fans leave you in comfort without having to blast the air conditioner. Two TVs, cable, DVD, stereo, and CD keep you well entertained while not at the beach.

A full kitchen, with dishwasher and all dishware, cookware and utensils, is included for your convenience. There is a separate dining area. Bed linens and other necessities are provided for your care-free holiday. A washer and dryer make packing easy!

Onsite covered parking is available for two cars.

The rental truly provides more than you expect and everything you could possibly need for your vacation: there are often bicycles to enjoy (left by previous guests); many beach towels; beach toys for the kids; beach umbrellas.. The quaint Anna Maria island is the perfect get-away destination to relax. The sugar-white, powder-soft beaches are a sight to behold, as is the tranquil, clear turquoise water. The Gulf water averages 84 degrees year-round. Dolphins can often be seen playing. Activities include hiking, biking, fishing, deep sea fishing, jet skiing, sail boating, scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, and wind surfing. There are golf courses on the island, and 45 more courses within a 30 minute drive. There is a free bus service to get around the island, but for your convenience, our unit is only a three minute walk from a large grocery store and several excellent restaurants

The area is perfect for Biking, Golf, Shuffleboard, Amusement Parks, Fishing, Wildlife Viewing, Shopping, Restaurants, Sightseeing, Swimming, Snorkeling/Diving, Boating, Water-skiing, Surfing, Windsurfing

Never again...

  • 1 of 5

We stayed here for a week at the end of May. We have two young children and love AMI, our 4th visit. There were some things about the condo we liked and some things we didn't like. Unfortunately, the air conditioner broke during our stay and it was very very hot in the condo, at the end of our stay over 85 degrees inside. These things do happen and it was unfortunate it happened at all but completely disappointing the way it was handled. We contacted the maintenance person and they did send out a crew. The crew said they would need to cut and replace the coil, a three hour job. This was Tuesday. But when we followed up the next day the maintenance person acted surprised and said he thought they fixed it. I am quite sure he knew it was not fixed and I was also emailing Ira so they knew. By the time this whole song and dance wrapped up, they said Friday at 9 am they would come to fix it. This was the last day of our trip and no one showed up. They would come Monday after we were gone from our hot vacation. No one could sleep and the kids were cranky. That all was bad, but I emailed Ira our last morning to say how disappointed I was - this is the only family vacation we could afford this year and we left exhausted. I felt we did not get what we paid for and what was agreed upon. I got no response. Nothing. The cherry on top was the morning we left, sweating like crazy up and down the stairs packing the car as it was over 80 degrees in the condo, the maintenance man sent a woman up to get his cleaning money at exactly 10am, check out time. Wow. We had asked for a late check out originally but were so done with the whole thing we left. It was not a good experience and I still feel upset when I think about it. Because of they way this was handled I would never rent here again.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the feedback, and do in fact feel bad for the situation. Some times things happen that are beyond our control. Yes the Air Conditioner did malfunction. At that point, only the AC company can fix the problem, I am at their mercy. Turns out the fix was not easy and parts were needed. IT also seems that they did not communicate that information very well, to me or to the guests. I apologized and tried my best to get the AC company to fix as soon as possible. I called them every day. As our hundreds of guest know over the years, the things that we control we try to do our very best at. But sometimes things do in fact break. We apologized and offered a deep discount for the future.

Perfect place for us

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here twice now and it is the perfect place for our family. There is a quick walk to the beach, it is located on a road that isn't busy at all. A half mile from walgreens which is great if you run out of sunscreen, Beds are comfortable, having cable and wifi is awesome! Kitchen is great! View from the top of the building is awesome! Condo was clean. The pool closet is great, and excellent to store any beach items you bring. We will be returning next year!

This is a very convenient location. The roof deck is excellent for the beautiful sunsets this area has to offer. Screen porches are great for dining. Beds were comfortable. Quite roomy condo. A great bargain.

Piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location of this little condo - it was a very quick walk to a beautiful piece of beach. The unit itself was older but very well taken care of - bathrooms and kitchen were squeaky clean, living room was comfortable, beds slept really well, and it was well appointed. Pool was just the right size for our family of four and all but once we were the only ones in it. Lots of "extras" in the pool closet, including chairs, toys and even bikes. The door lock was a little tricky when we first arrived, but we figured it out. We will go back in a heartbeat. We fell in love with the area and can't wait to spend more time there.
