Property exactly as shown although pictures don't do it justice. Beautiful home that is literally a 3 minute walk to the beach. Trolley stop across the street was nice. Area is quiet. Would definitely stay again.
The location of this property was everything we wanted while on our annual family vacation ... walking distance to the beach, to the trolley, to the grocery store, and several restaurants. The house was amazing with a game room and pool. The owner provided beach chairs and cart for hauling everything easily to the beach. The owner was very responsive when we had an issue with the air conditioner and had it fixed within a couple of hours. He remained in touch with us and made sure everything was working. Overall, our trip was wonderful!
The house was prefect. We had 10 people staying at the house, 6 adults and 4 kids. The house is exactly what it is advertised. It was very clean and well stocked.. The location of the home is a block from the beach, trolley and Publix grocery store. We were a little worried about crossing the road to the beach but it was very easy and safe. The home had plenty of beach towels, and beach chairs. Plenty of activities with the game room and pool the kids and adults loved it.
The community of AMI are so friendly not once did we feel unsafe. The trolley is easy to get a around are rental cars never moved.
Marc was very easy to deal with, he was very responsive to all of our questions. If we would go back to AMI we would rent from Marc again.
Good location. Good restaurants in the area. Very nice property!
We recently stayed in the Holmes Beach property #1213058 during the last week of 2019 and into the new year. We had 4 adults and 4 18 – 21 year olds. The property and the location were excellent. The kitchen was spacious and had all of the needed dishes, glasses, utensils, pots and pans, etc. The fridge was large and there was another large fridge in the garage/game room area. Having two master suites was nice so the two sets of parents both got king-sized beds. There were TVs everywhere and the internet Wi-Fi connection was speedy. We didn’t use the elevator because we had two 21 year sons to carry suitcases up the stairs. We parked two cars inside the gate easily. The location was just across Gulf Drive from the beach. There is a traffic light which made crossing easy. Publix and CVS were a short 5 minute walk away although you should avoid the Publix on Saturday afternoon. There is a Publix on the mainland on Manatee Avenue that you can stop at before you get to the property.
Marc was extremely responsive to our inquiries. We highly recommend this property and Anna Maria Island in general.
We had an absolutely perfect stay! Convenient walking distance from the beach and Tiki Bar, and convenient to stores and restaurants. The Property Manager was prompt and positive to all inquiries. The pool area in back and the game room were fun and relaxing.
The location is simply the best. You cannot beat it. You take a right off the main road and then the first right. The traffic gets pretty bad on the beach road so its awesome you don't have to really deal with it. We went for Orioles Spring Training and its only 40 minutes or so from the stadium which is awesome. The beach is literally a 5 minute walk or a 1 minute drive. The beach is great too with all the facilities you would want. Chairs included with the house which was nice. All you can pancakes and great breakfast/lunch foods + a bar (which is fun!). Marc is a great owner and he responded within minutes on most occasions via email. He was very understanding and the house was well equipped with everyone that we needed. Pool was excellent even on the colder days since it is heated. My son went swimming twice a day! We will be coming back again next year...,maybe even this fall to visit again. Thanks Marc -- you made our vacation experience great and we appreciate the care you took to make sure it stayed that way.
The house had tons of space. There were 10 of us. We never felt too cramped - the house is extremely spacious. Something for everyone from the teenagers to the grandparents. Beach is close enough for the teens to walk over. We’ve always loved the island and staying in this rental made it so much better. Close to shops and the beach but on a small deadend road to make it more private. Owner was super responsive in answering any questions.
This property was perfect for two families with kids. The beach is across the street and we were able to visit during the day and at sunset each evening. The pool area is fun and is next to the outdoor grill. The game room in the garage was a big hit with the kids. The elevator wasn't needed but we used it to load the suitcases up to the rooms which was a nice plus! There are multiple balconies which allows everyone to easily manage their alone time if needed. The property owner if very responsive and helpful. I highly recommend this property and location!
Where do I begin? The property manager for this beautiful home is also the owner, and he took great pride in not only his home but in responding immediately to any need we had. The home was beautiful and comfortable. Each room including the family room and each of the bedrooms had a large screen TV, so that when we were not enjoying the plush, tropical pool area or the basement which has been converted into a beautiful game room with ping-pong, AirHockey, Darts or the large screen TV, we could relax and watch TV together in the family room or separately in each of our bedrooms. We felt like we were in an oasis when we were in his pool which is surrounded by two tiki huts and a waterfall within the pool. He also has that fun little ring and hook game in the pool area as well as an outdoor shower and a outdoor grill. The home is conveniently located across the street from the beach as well as across the street from the Publix and CVS. The newly renovated kitchen had everything you need to enjoy meals at home when you are not out at some of the fun restaurants in Anna Maria Island. The elevator was extremely helpful in taking things upstairs to our rooms or to the kitchen. Despite it being extremely warm last week, the air conditioners kept the home cool and comfortable. I would not hesitate to stay there again.
