About Monique Gutierrez

Owners live in the neighborhood and can respond if any needs not met.

Why Monique Gutierrez chose Holmes Beach

Very comfortable home on a large ( .6 acre) shaded and private lot which is walking distance (2 blocks) to gift shops, 5 restaurants, 2 banks, barber shop, hardware store, rental store, art gallery, and a dentist.

What makes this house unique

Even if the weather is bad, you can just relax and enjoy the view of the beach. You can see the sunsets from inside the house, but it's more fun while sipping your favorite beverage under the Tiki Hut.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A wonderfully appointed and clean house with a million dollar view. We love this time of year when not so busy on the Island. This is our 4th vacation at Shady Pines. We always stay two weeks and have gotten to know the owners, Monique & Bob. It has everything you need for a relaxing stay. It is private, yet close to restaurants and shopping. You can park your car and use the free trolley! We will be back !

Great beach house

  • 5 of 5

The description does not do it justice. Shady Pines is a classic beach house directly on the gulf. The location could not be better. And if the sun becomes too much, the tiki hut offers shade without loss of the view. The house is clean, well appointed, and the owners take care to maintain it well. Inquiries or concerns get a quick and friendly response. The island has a nice mix of restaurants and activities. Much is within walking distance; all within biking range. We look forward to returning.

Shady Pines Is The Best!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stay at Shady Pines each year and it's the highlight of our year. It is an outstanding beach front property. We love it and look forward to it each year. There are plenty of neat restaurants on the island, but we also enjoy just hanging around the beach and the tiki hut. Bob and Monique are great hosts and we have enjoyed getting to know them over the years. It's a must for us each and every year!

Perfect beach vacation !!!

  • 5 of 5

Shady Pines is the perfect choice for a relaxing beach vacation. We stay at Shady Pines every year for our annual "girls week" and each year is better than the previous! The beachfront location is perfect; and the Tiki hut is a wonderful place to relax, read and enjoy the amazing sunsets over the Gulf. The owners, Monique and Bob have always been responsive to any questions we had - offering suggestions for restaurants and local attractions. The home is very comfortable and well appointed - right down to beach chairs and floats for the water! Having just returned, I am already looking forward to next years stay at Shady Pines!

Most relaxing vacation at Shady Pines.

  • 5 of 5

This clean well appointed beach house felt like a home away from home. From the comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen and spectacular panoramic views of the gulf from inside the house . Having a tiki hut to sit under was the frosting on the cake. Best vacation ever!

Exactly as shown in Pictures

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful beachfront house was exactly as shown in the pictures. The owners were excellent to work with and ensured we had everything we needed to enjoy a stress-free week long vacation. The house was very clean and comfortable. It was wonderful to be just a few steps from the sand and gulf. We hope to come back soon.

So much fun and relaxation!!

  • 5 of 5

Bob and Monique were so awesome! A flight scheduling mistake had us arriving earlier in the day than expected. They were so gracious and understanding and helped us get in as soon as they could. We could not have hoped for a better set up! The home was very clean and offered lots of room to lounge as well as outside beach and hangout areas! The view was amazing! We were all sad to leave and look forward to returning to Shady Pines as a yearly trip! Thank you Bob and Monique for a great place to call home for the week!
