Property Details

Updated: May 23, 2015
Townhome, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, 8 Sleeps

This three story unit, wtith 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths and a 2 car garage is located just off of Gulf Dr. & 64th St., is a short 1 1/2 block (8 houses) walk to the beach. It is an easy stroll made easier since we furnish you with a beach cart filled with all of your beach supplies and a golf cart to help you get back and forth.

This floorplan is perfect for family get-togethers with a large 16 x 24 great room and dining area off the newly renovated kitchen which will seat 12. There is also a 12 x 20 screened porch which everyone affectionately calls their 'tree house' - they love to have their morning coffee and danish there under the palms and rubber tree plants!

Three spacious bedrooms are all on the top floor with two additional baths and one additional balcony for privacy. Each bedroom has its own TV and DVD player so that you can get away - the kids even have their own gaming unit, bunk bed and trundle bed. We have a pack-n-play, baby gate, portable high chair and baby sheets and blankets along with toys for all ages from 6 months to 16 years.

About the Owner

Both my husband and I are from northern US, Chicago and Pittsburgh respectively. He joined the Air Force and ended up at MacDill AFB in Tampa and I worked in Pittsburgh as a School Administrator then moved to the Tampa area in my mid thirties to begina career in real estate. We met 6 months later and were married within 2 years.

While we dated and during the early part of our marriage, our favorite place to escape was Anna Maria Island. Once we had our son we realized how expensive it was to get hotels with children and decided it might be better to try and find a vacation home since we lived within an hour away. The real estate crash of the early 2000's combined with me being a realtor made it the perfect opportunity for us to find our home on the Island.

Love this place!

We again returned for another wonderful vacation in this lovely beach house. The home is clean, well maintained and furnished beautifully and tastefully. There is plenty of comfy furniture and a kitchen that is better equipped than mine with every pot/pan, appliance, or serving dish you could think of. The screened back porch high in the trees is a favorite spot for morning coffee, wine in the evening or just a nice place to sit and relax. It's only a short walk to the beach and the owner provides beach toys, beach cart, etc and the pool is only steps away. If you prefer not to drive there is a free trolley that will take you to many great restaurants, shops, the grocery store or just tour the island. Mary, the owner, will quickly address any questions or concerns you have. I would absolutely recommend this place and look forward to returning next year.

Owner's Response: I always seem to forget about the Trolley system on the Island and everyone enjoys it so. It is free, runs every 20 minutes to each stop and covers the entire Island all day through 10:00 pm or later on special occasions. We are also known as the bikingest Island due to our bike lanes and wealt of beach bike rentals at very reasonable rates per hour/day/week/month. Since there is no building permitted over three stories we don't have the crowding that most beaches face and still keep the quaint beach town feel where you ucan ride to the shops or ice cream store on your bike. It is such a great place for the family and kids.

Holmes Beach Anna Maria Island

Best time ever at Holmes Beach

  • 5 of 5
The condo is absolutely beautiful, not like a rental, more like a home. The furnishings and decorations are first class, super clean and well maintained. Very spacious - I will absolutely recommend this place to my friends and family. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful - we had a wonderful time. The beaches are in walking distance, and they are gorgeous. There are so many restaurants in the area, from casual to more fancy, too numerous to mention. We visited the Dali Museum in St. Pete, Busch Gardens in Tampa, and Disney and Universal Studios in Orlando are not too far. There is much to see and do in this area. We had the best time ever, and definitely will return.

Owner's Response: In an attempt to keep our home updated and comfortable, we commit to either replace furniture/electronics or a remodel project such as new wood floors, new kitchen/baths or painting /carpet each year. This keeps our family happy since we stay in it for six weeks each summer while my husband commutes to Orlando or Tampa Airport for work.

Lush tropical setting near the beach

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed this wonderful large home in a lush tropical setting very near the beach. We could actually walk to restaurants and shopping - or we could take the free trolley all over Anna Maria Island. Having a garage and our own golf cart was a plus. The heated pool was only a few steps from our door.

We loved Anna Maria Island and the people

  • 4 of 5
The property was close to the pool and beach - expecially in the golf cart. However, there was not much sun at the pool for trees are all around it. The lovely beach made up for it, tho. The townhouse was well maintained with wonderful amenities everywhere. Anything you could possibly need for the beach was provided in the garage. Lots of extras were provided in the kitchen and bathrooms. Very nicely decorated. We took our dog and a bed and bowls were even provided for him and the dog park was real close. Our main thing to do is fun in the sun and we had all that there. Would recommend this home to anyone unless you have trouble with stairs.

Owner's Response: Our home is located one and a half blocks (8 houses) from the beach which offers a great expanse of sand and wonderful swimming area. We have all the pool toys, chairs, towels, umbrellas and sun shades you might need and provide a golf cart for you to take everything back and forth to the beach. If you don't want to use the golf cart we also have a smaller push cart for walking.
If you get too hot you may want to retire to the pool. It is heated to a comfortable temperature yet has some trees around it to offer shade against the hot Florida sun. It is also nice around cocktail hour or close to lunch and dinner snce it is within 800 feet from our home!
The Community Park is also 4 blocks away and provides guests with the use of the dog park, tennis courts, boat launch, basketball court, softball and soccer field. Anna Marie has a lot to offer and you can get there in a short walk or bike ride - it is just a pleasure!


From the Owner

Even though we were thorough and did look at St. Pete and Clearwater beach, we always came back to the family style of Anna Maria with its ice cream shops, locals that know everyone and streets that you and your children can safely ride bikes on. Since you are not allowed to biuld anyting higher than 3 stories there are no high rises and therefore it is not as crowded...less traffic. We didnt choose to be directly on the beach because we wanted larger windows and balconies. Everything on the beach is made into a tunnel with a sliding glass door and small balcony at the end to get your view. All I could imagine was having company - and we get 20 or more- and the balcony flling in! Or eveyone inside sitting all over the floor because there weren't enough seats. Our home has 1600 sf living, large windows, 3 balconies, a patio and one balcony is 12' x 20'! I've had thirty people and not been crowded! The pool is within 500 feet yet across the street and behind the other building where I don't have to hear it and the beach is on 8 houses away. Our home sits in a nature preserve so it has trees of all things - not many but enough to stay cool - which are a welcome sight after a day at the beach.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Sarasota and Tampa Intl are both within 18 miles. at 25 Miles Nearest Barpub : D-Coy Ducks, Hurricane Hanks, Tiki Bar - walk to at 1 Miles Nearest Golf : Holmes Beach course on bay side at 3 Miles Nearest Train : Free Trolley for the Island - stop is 1 block dn at 1 Miles Nearest Motorway : Route 64 which brings you on the Island at 1 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Lobstahs, the Feast, Eat Here & more walk to at 1 Miles Nearest Beach : Holmes Beach 8 houses away & boat ramp 5 blocks at 1 Miles Car: recommended

Anna Maria is a quaint beach town where you can rent bikes or take a

stroll to your favorite restaraunt or ice cream parlor. In the

evenings you can enjoy the local acoustic guitar player at the beach

bars or just watch the beautiful sunsets away from the crowds. You

can rent anything from scooters to jet skis or go on fishing

charters or gambling charters - whatever your pleasure is!

Since there are ordinances in place keeping the construction of new

development from building no higher than six stories, it restricts

the number of hotels, motels and condos that come to the island and

keeps the non-commercialized beach 'feel'. That is not to say that

all the comforts of development, shopping and restaraunts are not

within 10 to 15 minutes away - they are. A quick trip to Sarasota,

St. Armands Circle, Cortez Blvd. or Bradenton will spring you back

to full civilization and fullfill all your shopping, dancing, art or

need for a gourmet meal!

From the Owner

Since we are in a community we actually get to know some of our neighbors. 50% actually live here either year round or 6 months a year. The remaining owners are vacation home renters like us who rent their home when they don't use it themselves. We use our home 3-4 months a year so you will not see the average rental furniture or minimal items in the drawers. It is nice to talk to people at the pool from other areas but it is also nice to see neighbors that you can get together with every year when you come down!
