Lovely Beach Home Retreat Close to Central Florida

We thoroughly enjoyed our family getaway at this Holmes Beach property. The layout of the house with 3 levels was absolutely perfect for our party of 7 adults. The bedrooms located on the uppermost level each had a private bath and each bedroom had plenty of natural light. The first thing I noticed about the bedrooms was the sheets...they were ironed and creased perfectly! The kitchen and living area was located on the 2nd level. We never heard any noise from the tv or cooking etc. Woke up one morning to find that our daughters had been baking chocolate chip cookies the night before. (yes the kitchen has everything you need to bake). Also plenty of essentials left in the cupboards for your use. The lower level (garage/pool) was perfectly equiped for lounging. The guys had a ping pong tournament one night and the private pool was the favorite hangout for sunset cocktails! Looking forward to returning!

Great house and location is unbeatable

Had a great week staying at this property. Everything about the house was fantastic. The kids loved the pool and the area around the pool. Every bedroom has it's own bath which was also nice. The eat-in kitchen is great for adults or kids. The upstairs open air room is very nice at nights for just sitting enjoying the night or playing games. The location cannot be beat whether you need to walk to beach or grocery store the are both very close. Also, the Anna Maria Island Cafe is a few steps away to enjoy all you can eat pancakes on the beach.

If you are looking for a house for 10 I would highly recommend this property along with Marc the owner is very easy to work with and returns any message very quickly.

A great break from winter!

Our family and really enjoyed our stay at Holmes Beach and Casa Tranquila. The house was lovely and, as one of our group put it "better than the pictures". The house had everything we needed and was it a great location. We parked our car upon arrival and did not need it again until departure. You are in walking distance to Publix for groceries, beach access and the FREE trolley. We also rented 2 bikes during our visit so we could explore the island neighborhoods and rode all the way down to explore Longboat Key as well.

Marc's home was nice and clean with plenty of space for everyone to spread out as needed or hang out together in the kitchen for meal prep. Marc was very responsive when we had a minor issue with the pool and we were able to get it resolved.

Our only "concern" was with the code enforcement. Within minutes of our arrival, the enforcement people were waiting outside of the home to provide us with the brochure about the rules on AMI. Most were common sense and easy to comply with considering the residential area. However, the "allowed" noise level of 65dB during the day and 50dB overnight seems excessive. Typical conversation level is 60dB and the pool pumps, lawn mowers and waves all exceed 65dB. Though we were not "bothered" by code enforcement, this strict code, and the accompanying $75 fine, visits duirng the busy season might be expensive if you are a louder group or have young children that might want to play outside in the pool area. And, all of the open balconies are wonderful but just talking and playing cards or games would exceed the allowed noise level.

Great house in a great location!

My husband and I and our adult children and their families stayed in this 4 bedroom, 4 bath house - it was great! The grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed the pool after sleeping very well on their comfy memory foam beds. My grandsons also enjoyed ping pong and air hockey in the game room.

A very quick walk across the street took us to the beach and the trolley was easy to hop on and off of as well.

The house was very clean and decorated nicely - it is a beautiful property. Mr. Gomez (the owner) was very quick to respond to any issues and everything was taken care of immediately! We would definitely like to return!

Beautiful house, island

We had a great time! House was beautiful with tons of space. A perfect location right in the center of the island. We never needed to contact Marc with any isssues, house was well equipped, pool temperature never needed adjustment, and house stayed at a comfortable temp as well. Only complaint was that there is no hot tub, which I could have guessed from the pictures. But overall, it was fantastic. Thank you Marc!

Excellent property overall!!!

For the second year in a row my family and I enjoyed a wonderful week at the beach at Casa Tranquila. This large house is absolutely beautiful, fun, conveniently located across the street from the beach, on a very private lot and has all of the amenities that anyone would want in a vacation rental. The owner is also the rental agent. He just finished remodeling the house. What a fantastic job he did!!! Our favorite additions were the 1000 sq.ft game room, the large and private pavered courtyard with 4 lounge chairs to sunbathe privately, and the beautiful kitchen with a center granite island and granite countertops. The owner manages his rental exquisitely with quick replies if anything is needed, early check-ins (two years in a row), impeccable service before, during and after your stay. Owner provides plenty of beach towels, bath towels, dish and laundry detergent, kitchen cooking supplies, etc. The property is spotless and perfectly managed. Thanks Marc, we’ll back next year.

Both the house and its owner are real gems

A beautiful home, nicely decorated, and with plenty of room to gather together or find some private space. The house is sparkling clean, well maintained, and has a very functional layout with plenty of outside deck and patio space along with a very decent and nicely landscaped pool. The location is about as good as it can get - with close proximity to the beach, groceries, and access to the island trolley. The owner is a great communicator, and responded to our many questions quickly. Both the house and its owner are real gems and our family had a wonderful time there; we would not hesitate to return.

Best Family Beach Vacation Ever

What an amazing experience!!!! This home is spectacular!! It boast 4 bedroom each with its own private bath. The pool in the back is absolutely breath-taking. The game room in the basement is sooooo fun!!!! My teenage boys were up all night playing ping pong and fooze ball and enjoying the pool while we grilled steaks on the amazing grill. The kitchen had EVERYTHING you could ever need or want!!!! The proximity to the Beach is spectacular!!! The owner even has a cart with all the beach chairs and umbrellla waiting to be taken down the the beach which is amazing. Volleyball courts are set up in the sand, tiki hut bars are available for drinks and even a band plays "Please don't take my sunshine away" at sunset. We could not have been more pleased that we selected THIS home for Spring Break 2019!! We cannot wait to return!!!
