Holmes Beach House Rental Photos and Description

3 bed, 2 bath, sleeps 6, including outdoor shower!

Custom built in 2013 this three bedroom, two bath home is beautifully designed for six guests. Come to Island Breeze and relax with all the amenities to make your vacation home a truly memorable experience. From your first step into the oasis you will feel yourself decompress.

Eleven foot ceilings welcome you with an open spacious feeling. The kitchen has been stocked with everything you need to prepare your meals when your not experiencing one of our island restaurants. Two full baths with large showers and tasteful decor await you. The master suite & guest bedroom both have queen size beds with comfy mattresses and linens. The third bedroom is equipped with two twin beds designed for comfort. All three bedrooms have plasma flat screen TV's in addition to the one in the living room. We have WiFi and cable so you can bring your lap top or iPad if you choose to stay contacted to the outside world. Ipod docking station for your music enjoyment. Just plug in your playlist and dance your worries away......you're on island time now!

Step outside to enjoy a splash pool with ample seating to enjoy your lazy afternoons. Chaise lounges and tables and chairs await your dinner alfresco. Have a strawberry margarita, lemon drop or rum runner cocktail to help put you in the mood for vacation fun. It is a great sunny spot to sip your coffee in the morning too with a pastry from Ginny's & Janie's Bakery Cafe and Island Coastal Store. Evening barbecues? No problem with our pool side grill.

Take the wagon equipped with all your beach supplies, chairs, umbrella, towels, floaties and beach toys, head down to the beach three blocks away to stake your ideal spot. Enjoy the surf, beach walk, hunt for that special shell, float in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, people watch or simply dig your toes in the sand and bask in the sun. Awwhh! This is truly paradise! When you return from your beach jaunts use your private outside shower to remove the last of the days beach sand.

Our island is only seven miles long and never more than a few blocks wide which leaves you with sounds of the waves and visions of the sunset in all locations. Did I say sunsets? Every evening join the parade of parties wandering down to the Gulf to watch the magnificent sun sets. If you weren't hooked on the activities abound on the beaches by day, you will cherish the sunsets! Before you know it, you will be planning your next trip to paradise before you leave.

Anna Maria Island is known as 'An Island in the Sun'. The average temperature is 80 degrees. The island consists of 3 cities, Bradenton is the southern most, Holmes Beach in the middle and Anna Maria on the Northern tip. Each community has its own distinct character but all have that relaxed old Florida Charm with unique shops and restaurants. Anna Maria Island has seven miles of sugar white sand beaches, sand dunes, sea oats and Australian Pines lying between the Gulf of Mexico and the Intercoastal Waterway. This destination is a natural choice for tropical vacationers looking for golf, tennis, water sports, shopping, plus many cultural and historical attractions.

Hop aboard the free trolley just steps from your front door to experience a Grouper sandwich or Stone Crab at one of our local restaurants. Meander through the boutiques to look for a souvenir. The trolley runs everyday from 6am until 10:30pm. Stops are just two to four blocks apart!

Come experience 'Old Florida' life on Anna Maria Island. We can't wait to share our island with you!

About Barbara Spotleson

My brother and I purchased this property as a vacation home for our families. Our family has been coming to the island for over 45 years!

Barbara Spotleson purchased this house in 2014

Why Barbara Spotleson chose Anna Maria Island

We wanted a maintenance free home. The custom home was extremely well built by contractor Mark Kimball. We love all the extra care and amenitites Mark added to make this an amazing home.

What makes this house unique

The 12 foot plus ceilings add a spacious, comfy feeling. The two extra large showers in our baths are wonderful. The transom windows above the doors brighten up each bedroom with natural light. And who wouldn't love our beautifully landscaped yard with heated splash pool!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for everything! The house was perfect and we had a wonderful vacation. We look forward to renting from you all again!

Best,

So amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I are just finishing breakfast on the last day of our two week vacation to the beautiful Anna Maria island, and we are so sad to leave. The Island Breeze, owned by Barbara and Steve was the most amazing vacation home, and just perfect for us. All of the fixtures, furnishings, and amenities were top notch. The home layout, with the three very separate bedrooms was very private for each of us. Not to mention how beautiful the home was! Everything is extremely well maintained, inside and out. We are already checking our calendar for next summer, so we can plan our return visit! Thank you Steve, for everything, our stay was perfect!!

Amazingly Beautiful House

  • 4 of 5

I would highly recommend this gorgeous house. It was spotlessly clean, everything was provided, the only thing we had to bring was clothing. I gave this residence 4 1/2 stars out of 5 only because the water temperature throughout the house was temperamental, sometimes it took a long time to get hot, but once it did it was too hot. We informed the owner so hopefully it can be fixed. It was a little far to walk to the beach so we just drove and we really didn't have a problem finding a place to park. The owners were so nice, they even let us check in early on a holiday weekend!! We all enjoyed this vacation and would love to come again.

Absolutely BEAUTIFUL, RELAXING & COMFORTABLE

  • 5 of 5

We visited Anna Maria Island during spring break. Not only is it as beautiful as the pictures indicate, but a very comfortable place to call "home" for the week. I was initially a little worried that we were going to be a little too far from the beach, but the walk was a very easy 10 minute walk, especially with the beach wagon that was provided for use. We also enjoyed the location --- it was very quiet. Some of our favorite times were relaxing in and around the pool. Morning walks along the beach were great, but nothing beats watching the sun set over the water. I highly recommend this home!

Beautiful location-beautiful, clean home!

  • 5 of 5

My family had the pleasure of staying at this home for a week. The property was VERY CLEAN. The house is beautifully decorated, the bedrooms, kitchen and den are spacious. My husband and four children had PLENTY of room to relax. We cooked almost every night and enjoyed the pool quite a bit. The pictures really don't do the pool justice. I was prepared for a smaller pool from previous reviews but the size is really perfect. After staying on the beach all day it was great to unwind in the pool on the wonderful little benches built into the pool. The house is about three or four blocks from the beach. Since all of the golf carts were booked on the island we ended up using the public parking-just threw everything into the truck and unloaded. It was NO PROBLEM. (Pay very close attention to the parking rules-we received a ticket for parking in the wrong direction-just a heads up!)

There was a lot to do in Holmes Beach and the water was absolutely beautiful. My kids had the best time snorkeling. We did take a short drive to Cortez and rented a boat for the day and also went parasailing. This was, by far, the best vacation my family has ever had. PERFECT PROPERTY, UNCROWDED PARADISE-WE WILL DEFINITELY COME BACK:)

Beautiful home!!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed at this truly lovely home earlier this month (May 2016). The first word that comes to mind when remembering this trip is "ahhhh". I can't even explain how comfortable and spacious it is. It had large rooms with high ceilings and still has the brand new smell.

The pool was very clean and warm. Loved drinking my coffee out there every morning! Talk about relaxing and letting the real world go. This was an easy place to do it!

We would definitely stay here again!!
