About Anna Maria Island:

Anna Maria Island is a quaint Barrier Island nestled in the Gulf of Mexico. Beautiful turquoise waters and white sandy beaches are the main attraction here. It is a place where 'old' Florida charm can still be found, flip flops are a way of life and the speed limit never exceeds 35mph. High rise condos and fast food restaurants are pleasantly absent from our pristine 'get away from it all' island.

About Cheri

About the owner: Hello vacationers! I live on beautiful Anna Maria Island and hope that you have the opportunity to at least visit the island. I have lived on Anna Maria for almost ten years now and enjoy the cozy small island feel. It really is a friendly place! So come visit sooner than later! Thanks again for your interest!

Cheri purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Cheri chose Anna Maria Island

Why the Owner Chose Holmes Beach:

When I moved to the island I fell in love with the small town feel. It was nice to walk into the post office, drug store or supermarket and see smiles all around! I thought that other people would also enjoy getting to experience the tight knit community. It makes me smile to be able to let someone else enjoy our island paradise. I hope that everyone that stays here will enjoy our island as much as I do and that it will be a yearly stop for many!

What makes this cottage unique

This duplex is just a few short blocks to the beach. There are no busy streets to cross. The unit offers free long distance calling, internet, cable TV, washer and dryer, patio area and a small storage shed for beach chairs, toys, etc. We have a patio table with umbrella and an outdoor grill.

Great host and cozy relaxed neighborhood in middle of island

  • 4 of 5

Nice place. Host Cheri was super helpful and gracious and helped us with several items as it was our first trip to AMI. About a 5 minute walk to the beach. The best beaches are on the northern tip of the island and definitely better when compared to middle and south but all of them are lovely and great for families and swimming etc... we even saw dolphins day 2 about 75 meters from shore while swimming. Overall a great spot for a relaxing stay but if you're looking for high end amenities or luxury, you're going to have to splurge on one of the newly remodeled places or stay up north for much more money. Thanks Cheri for everything.

Clean and Cute Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week between Christmas and New Years here and had a small reunion of old friends. The cottage is nothing fancy, but super clean and decorated cute! The two bedrooms and baths are on opposite sides of the house, separated by the kitchen. This split plan is perfect for 3-4 people, as you still have your privacy even though the house is small.

The location is perfect, just a short walk to the beach. The kitchen is very small and not really suitable to eat in, as we had to use the the table to hold all our snacks. No worries though, as we really just ate snack type foods in the nice sized living room. The outside sitting area is nice and private, but the air conditioner unit is on that side of the house and a bit loud. We got used to it though.

The house was supplied with everything we needed. We did have to buy some paper towels and bath soap though. The tub in the main bathroom did not drain fast enough to keep up with the shower head that poured our water. This is our only complaint. They should replace the shower head and maybe try some drain-o in the tub.

We are already thinking about renting this house again for another vacation. The island was very crowded during the holiday season, so next time we'll go during off season.

Cheep and Cheerful!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoy Florida from back in the day! The property is neat and tidy but it is NOT straight out of HGTV design. We loved it! The property has been taken cared of and loved and the aluminum windows are still going strong! The decor is Golden Girls lovely. The beach is beautiful and much closer than expected. Staying two blocks from the beach instead of right on the beach saved us $$$ and still allowed us the ability to go back to the condo for snacks or forgotten toys. The trolley stop North is just across the street and the trolley stop South is just 2 blocks away. We could go anywhere on the island without the car. Great location for those on a budget.

We took the trolly to "tour" the entire island since this was our first time at AMI and the trolly just makes a big loop around the island. Heading north on the trolly from the property it only takes 5 mins to get to Ginny's & Jane E's, a great place to get coffee, breakfast lunch or souvenirs. Take the trolly all the way to the pier and watch the people fish. Or hop off earlier for pizza, ice-cream, shopping. The island has lots to do but at a slower pace so take the time to slow down and enjoy it! There are more activities and shops down at the southern end of the island if you want to try para-sailing or jet skiing. But there are several companies on the island that will deliver bikes, surf boards, paddle boards etc right to the location you want. We had a fun time paddle boarding in the bay. We entered at the boat dock on 63rd.

We had three kids in tow. Two slept in the second room and one stayed on the couch. There was enough space to sleep but the table only sets two or three. There is a table outside but if its raining guests having greater than three people will need to stand at mealtime or gives you a good excuse to go out to eat every night! With having kids, more towel racks in the bathroom with the tub would have been helpful but there is a HUGE washing machine which saved the day for us. Finally, I would say having rugs of some kind in the bedrooms just to stand on while getting dressed after bath would be helpful. We just used spare towels so again it wasn't a big deal.

My "complaints" are small and would not stop me from booking this condo again. We loved the place and were so grateful to Cheri for getting groceries for us since we arrived late to the island. What a wonderful service!

Short walk to the beach, clean, perfect stay for a small group!

  • 5 of 5

Good location, quick walk to the beach. Monkey bus was a great way to get around! Communication was great and the cottage was nicely decorated in true florida fashion. Very clean and a nice place to stay for a small group.

quiet neighborhood, great location.

  • 5 of 5

My family and i recently stayed here for mother's day weekend and the experience was unforgettable. Cheri was always very quick to answer any questions i had. I highly recommend this place to anyone. No complaints about the place at all. Just a short walk to the beach. The house inside has anything you need from dishes to towels.
