About the property

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

*Check in / Check out - SATURDAYS ONLY*

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 Ilexhurst

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.

Incredible Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My new husband and I chose to come to this beach cottage for our honeymoon, and we couldn't have made a better choice! Carolyn is an awesome host and has really put so much thought into what will make her guests' stay comfortable and easy. The beach house has EVERYTHING you need for a great stay - beach chairs, pool toys, a grill, and more! It's awesome to walk just one short block to the beach. We have fallen in love with this house and will be returning!

Amazing couples cottage

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage was the perfect getaway for couples. It's centrally located in Holmes Brach, just steps from the Gulf, with grocery convenience right around the corner. The house is modern and updated. The pool is a private oasis off the bedroom door. Loved everything about this place. The owner is super helpful and easy to work with.
