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!

Cute duplex with off road parking

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited Anna Maria Island with another couple and their 2 sons. The layout was perfect and we wanted for nothing! Our host was very easy to work with. We love the beach life and cant wait to come back next year!!

Cute house

  • 4 of 5

This house is close to the beach. It is a cute little house that worked well for us. It had pros and cons. Pros: liked the set up and that there is a bedroom away from the livingroom so some can stay up later in the livingroom and some can go to bed if wanted. Loved having a washer, dryer, dishwasher, and grill. Cons: house didn't seem to be cleaned very well. Not "dirty" but not as clean as other VRBO houses we have stayed in. One of the bathroom showers drains very very slow so by the time you get out of the shower your standing in a bunch check of water. Hot water heater is small. We also had to get our own TP and paper towels since there was only part of 1 roll in each bathroom and no paper towels. Not a big deal just something we are used to being there. Cheri was great to work with. All the cons are little things that wouldn't stop is from staying there again. We go every year and would rent this house again.

Everything was fine with this rental. Very close to the beach and in a nice location. Short walk to the Trolley stop as well as a small park overlooking a small body of water...great place to begin the day with a coffee & cigar. You cannot go wrong with this one.

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.
