Overview

Holmes Beach House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5) so-o-o-o close to the beach!

The beach and beach access is just 100 steps away and close enough to run home to refresh your drinks at this beautiful 1000 square foot ground floor unit. This very special island retreat has been thoughtfully furnished with a decorator's touch and if you scroll to the bottom of this page after the Owner Info you will find a link to our VIRTUAL TOUR, as well as a link to our upstairs unit's listing and you can take a walk through our little bit of paradise! This first floor unit has a screened lanai at the front of the house with table and chairs, etc. and a patio and hammock right outside the lanai. In the garage you'll find the laundry area, a beach cart, as well as a beach umbrella and chairs. There are usually lots of beach and pool toys that guests have left behind for your enjoyment so check what's there before you buy anything. Beach towels are provided in the unit.

Ready for the beach? Grab a beach cart, beach chairs and those beach towels because you're just steps away from the white sands of the Gulf of Mexico. Back from the beach, rinse off in the outdoor shower and relax by the intimate heated patio pool in the tropical atmosphere of your tranquil home away from home.

Cook to your heart's content in your fully appointed kitchen or visit one of the many great restaurants on the island that are within a short walk or drive. You can also catch the island trolley, which stops right across the street, and explore the local shopping, City Pier and other attractions.

It's impossible to miss the amazing sunsets! You can watch from the comfort of your lanai or join the sunset pilgrimage to the beach.

After a day of perfect indulgence, you're assured a restful night wrapped in the finest linens while the soothing tropical breezes lull you to sleep.

About The Owner

We're Jim and Marilyn Misiorowski and we're originally from Chicago but now live in California. Jim's parents lived in Bradenton and when we would visit them they would always take us to the island. Of course we fell in love with it and bought this property in late 2005 and shortly thereafter completely remodeled it. Since we're both still working, we don't get to spend as much time as we'd like to on the island, but if things work out right, that should be changing in a few years!

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

What makes this house unique

Our property's proximity to the beach is just one of the many things that first attracted us to it. When we have the opportunity to spend some time at our property, it's great to come home after being at the beach, shower off at the outdoor shower and relax by or in the heated pool listening to the palms swaying in the breeze. And you're going to love that hammock on the front patio!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ambiance II was a perfect rental property. It was clean, well equipped, and ready for our arrival. We were very comfortable at the home and couldn't have asked for a better location. Excellent set up for a small family. Thanks!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We're staying at this property now and couldn't be happier. It's even closer to the beach than we'd expected, which is irrportant since we have a small child and an elderly parent with us. Playing at the beach in the warm water and then coming back to the pool in the late afternoon has been so much fun. We also met some great people who are staying upstairs and it's been just wonderful. The property is very clean, well maintained and has everything we need to enjoy our stay. Don't want to leave. Can't wait to return!

Perfect Escape

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week here in spring of 2015. The owners of this unit thought of everything vacationers need and we were delighted to find our unit appointed with just the right amount of luxury and coziness to make our stay stress free. With the ocean right across the street and the beautiful tropical pool right out our door we spent hours relaxing and thinking this is the life. Being more accustomed to Inn or resort accommodations we were impressed with the privacy and the value of this vacation home rental and will definitely return.

Gorgeous Tropical Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This property was the perfect place for our vacation. The pictures do not do it justice. So convenient to the beautiful private beach and local shops and restaurants. The unit was very clean and has a very nice outdoor pool area as well as a screened-in lanai to have your morning coffee. The hammock is a nice touch and I enjoyed lounging in it, totally relaxing! Loved our stay here and plan to come back very soon. Just Perfect!!!

Perfect spot, return visit a must!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking for a peaceful vacation spot to enjoy some time on the gulf coast with our two children (ages 6 and 2), and this rental was perfect. We really appreciated the lanai porch and outdoor pool area, both of which were pleasant spaces to eat a meal or have coffee in the morning. The indoor space was clean and had a great beach feel, and was very comfortable overall.

The heated pool was great for our younger children, but the main attraction is the gorgeous private beach literally a few steps away. We couldn't have asked for a better location or a nicer beach to spend the day. Also, everything we needed was there thanks to a well-stocked supply of umbrellas, tents, towels, chairs and plenty of beach toys for the little ones.

We also had the pleasure to meet the owners who happened to be staying in the unit upstairs during our stay. They were so friendly and even took a little time to play with our kids, ask how we're doing from time to time and talk about the island and surrounding area. It is clear they have a genuine interest in their guests and ensuring an enjoyable stay for all.

We loved staying on Anna Maria island and in particular in this spot. When the time comes to return, we will check the availability here first!

Perfect vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (2 adults 2 small kids) have stayed here a couple times now and every time we leave loving it more. The unit is clean, comfortable and inviting - all the things you're looking for on a vacation. The patio and pool are a perfect escape from beach and the outdoor shower shows that they thought of everything. The beach is so close when you're ready to go back, it's right there! The owners provide beach towels and chairs for the beach. Everything about the island is relaxing ( with enough activities for the kids too!)
