We rented this house with our family of 5, my sisters family of 5 and our Mom & her best friend joined us for our weeks vacation. It slept 12 VERY comfortably. The house was a perfect fit for us as we beached it daily, watched the sunset nightly, we even got married on the beach! Absolutely spectacular sunsets! We used the pool daily & had enough seating for all of us to eat outside.
We will for sure be back & will look to rent this same house again!
We had nine people, three teens and six adults, and the rooms in the older part of home are tiny. This house lacks dressers. (Only one in new area and a built-in in king bedroom) Since there is no vent in sunroom, the house can get very hot during the day (in older section). We called air conditioner guy twice and received fast service. We loved having two refrigerators. The pool area is nice with a nice yard but Mosquitos were bad in July. We had three dogs and it was perfect for them with the fence. Proximity to beach is awesome! We loved this area of Holmes beach. We rode our bicycles to the old pier and to the Anna Maria doughnut shop.
My sister and her family and my family rented this beach house a few weeks ago, what a wonderful home! We could not ask for a nicer and well-equipped home. It's a short walk to the beach. It has its own private pool which was just perfect! We had plenty of room for 8 in this house. Everything was top of the line. Thank you for sharing your home and we hope to visit again soon.
Every year we get together with for a family vacation and this is the first time we tried Anna Maria Island. Everyone had a great time at teh beach and the house was nice too. The house is not fancy and quite adequate for 6 people without a problem. We really liked being able to bike around the island. Wish the weather had been a little warmer.
My extended family and I spent a week in this house in Holmes Beach and we’re planning to go back again (maybe next year). The house itself was great for our family. My wife and I went with our kids and my in-laws. It’s big, immaculate and spacious and it has a nice private second-floor apartment with its own kitchenette and bathroom that was perfect for my in-laws to escape the craziness of the kids and relax by themselves.
The location couldn’t be better. It’s about 150 steps to the beach, so the kids had plenty of activities to keep them busy. They could fish, kayak, paddle board, snorkel or scuba dive. There’s a free trolley bus that stops right next door so you can get around even without a car. The town of Anna Maria is a quaint little place with a lot of nice shops and restaurants. The house itself is right near The Beach House restaurant where my wife and I enjoyed a romantic dinner without the kids (thanks to the in-laws).
Of course, you don’t really need to go anywhere. The yard of this house is absolutely breathtaking! It has a beautiful pool that is surrounded by fantastic landscaping. There is plenty of seating all around: lounge chairs for sun-worshippers like my wife and daughter and chairs and tables with umbrellas for us shade-loving people like my in-laws and me. There’s even an umbrella with chairs in a shallow area of the pool just like your own personal resort! When we didn’t eat out, we barbequed on the gas grill in the yard and relaxed in the A/C inside.
Getting here was simple. We live in New York and took a direct flight into Bradenton Airport which is only a half hour away from the house.
We totally enjoyed Holmes beach. The beach is beautiful and just a few minute walk from the house. My kids loved the pool and there was plenty of room for our large family.
The accommodations were great. Comfortable beds and plenty of bathrooms. The outside showers were convenient for after the beach.
We'll definitely be back again!
