About the property

1 BR / 1 BA home with private pool, steps to beach. Outdoor Shower.

This is the Best Little Beach House on Anna Maria Island...with a pool.

Our home is a completely renovated 1 bedroom / 1 bathroom home that will take your breath away! Located in Holmes Beach, it is 5 houses and a short 1 minute stroll to the beautiful white sandy Gulf of Mexico beaches.

The beach itself is quiet section due to the fact that there are no large resort / hotel / motel accommodations close by.

We are the ONLY one bedroom private home with a pool on Anna Maria Island.

Many homes on the Island are actually duplexes where you each have your own pool but have shared interior walls.

This is a truly 'Private' home without shared walls or a backyard separated by fencing.

The private heated pool has a waterfall, in-pool cocktail table, and bench seating. Outdoor amenities include lounge chairs, dining table, outdoor shower, front porch seating and gas barbecue.

With tropical style coastal furnishings, this home has it all, located within a short walking distance to many shops and restaurants. It is also very close to one of the free trolley stops. The bedroom includes a king bed, large flat screen TV and DVD player. The living room has a couch, love seat and a large flat screen TV with DVD player. Bathroom includes granite counter tops and a walk in tiled shower. Bring your mobile devices as this home is equipped with Wi-Fi throughout.

We provide you with all the items you will need such as luxury bedding, bath towels, washcloths, beach towels and a fully equipped kitchen.

There are chairs, umbrellas and floats that you are welcome to bring to the beach. We also have a cart to make it easier for you to get them there :-)

Why Island Plaza 102 llc. - Carolyn chose Holmes Beach

We have the same story as most of the locals on Anna Maria Island, 'we came to Anna Maria Island for a vacation and never left'. Well that was a number of years ago and we still are here. Come and enjoy our home, you will never want to leave either.

What makes this house unique

The private pool and short stroll to the beach for the beautiful Gulf view sunset make this house an ideal place for a romantic vacation or getaway. Every aspect of this house was considered when it was recently remodeled. We are the only one bedroom private home with a pool on Anna Maria Island.

Great location in middle of Anna Maria Island. One short block to the beautiful beach. This house is decorated very tastefully and makes you feel like you for sure are in Florida. Very private feeling. Enjoyed the pool everyday.

Beautiful property

Overall, everything was nice. The space was very private. Although the beach was a little more crowded than we preferred, we were able to hide in the pool.

Great House for 2 on Anna Maria Island

  • 5 of 5

The Best Little House on Anna Maria Island lives up to its name! Lovely house with ample room for two including a good size shower and a nice heated pool. Would highly recommend for a week stay or more...short distance to a beautiful beach with plenty of dolphin and egret sightings.
