This absolutely gorgeous 4 bedrooms 3.5 bathroom home is located in the heart of Anna Maria Island in Holmes beach. It is only a short stroll to the beautiful Gulf Beaches. With a 2 car garage an extra-large driveway there is more than enough guest parking. Take the stairs or elevator to the main floor where you will find an open kitchen, living and dining area, with walk out balconies at the front and back of the home. The Queen bedroom just off the main living space looks out onto the tropical backyard pool area. The top floor has a large master king bedroom at the front of the house with large balcony with ocean views, a great place to enjoy your morning coffee or a glass of wine for a breathtaking sunset experience. The master has a large en-suite with glass shower and walk-in closet. The top floor also has a bunk room with 2 sets of twin bunk beds and the fourth bedroom with a queen bed both share a full bathroom off the hall.

Even though the beach is only steps away you can also waste your days away in the tropical backyard with heated pool, lounge chairs, outside bar, gas grill, and shower to rinse off for when you do enjoy a beautiful white sand beach day. Or you can always take the free trolley to Bean Point, or down to historic Bridge Street. Eat at restaurants like Beach Bistro, Chateau Anna Maria, grab burger's at Skinny's, or watch the sunset at the Sandbar. Go parasailing, take a sunset cruise or paddleboard on the crystal clear blue waters in the Gulf of Mexico.

This home can comfortably accommodate a group of 8 -with plenty of space for everyone to enjoy their privacy while spending quality time together under one roof-this home is ideal for multiple families. Traveling with little ones? We know you'll be back and forth to and from the beach a LOT! This house is less a minute from the front door to the white sand or having your toes in the gulf. Too many luxury amenities to list them all. Free high-speed WiFi and Spectrum cable TV. Take the worry out of packing your private sheets and beach towels knowing that when you arrive at your dream vacation rental, in place are high-quality luxury bedding, bath towels, and beach towels ready for your stay. Free up luggage space and breathe easy knowing that everything is already taken care of for you.

We might be only 7 miles long but Anna Maria has everything you could possibly need for your perfect
beach vacation. Traveling with a little one? All our homes come with pack & plays and highchairs. Need
more? There are several great rental places that have everything from baby gates to golfcarts, and they
will drop them right off at your vacation property for you. No need to pack beach towels we provide
those for you.
Remember we are laid back and on Island time - Flip-flops and shorts are ok for breakfast, lunch and
dinner no need to overpack you will most likely be in your cutest bathing suit or bikini anyways.
No need to pay the crazy high fees to check all those bags! With Publix, CVS, and Walgreens right on the
island you can grab any sunscreen, hair product anything needed, why haul it all with you?

We do our rentals from Saturday to Saturday, if you are looking for a stay that is not a 7-night rental or would like to begin your vacation on a day other than Saturday please send us an email to [email protected] as we can sometimes accommodate alternate reservations

"Our family has four boys aged 8-16, we loved this house because of the space and privacy! Everyone had their own bed, own room. The private pool was a win for both kids and adults. The home is clean and well stocked. We lucked out with early check in by request. I love that the property recycles and donates un-used food and beverage items. We would have liked to see more family games, a small cooler (there were two large coolers), and more pool accessories (we brought our own diving sharks and rings and goggles, and purchased a few pool noodles while there.) This property is a very easy walk to the beach with a wagon available to transport chairs and umbrellas. We saw a few people with pop up tents which would be useful as well! We used the grill, bikes, and loved the deck sitting in the evening. Would stay here again and recommend to large families."

"The location was perfect. So close to the beach and very close to restaurants. Love the front porch sat out there all morning and when at the house most of the day although we were at the beach most of the day. Elevator came into use for unloading our luggage. Lots of stairs in the house. Very clean. Yet smell of strong bleach upon arrival. Had an issue of the vent coming out of the ceiling and no one came to fix after talking with the company. Oh well no biggie. Our biggest complaint was the pictures online show the pool with sun and there was definitely not sun on the pool during our stay. I’m not sure if the house being built next door took away that feature or what. But overall we loved our stay here would stay here again."

"House was nice. Had most of what we needed. The pictures of the pool having sun on it are false advertisement. It seems that the pictures need updated after a house being built next door it totally blocked the sun from hitting the pool. Also I called about a vent falling from the ceiling and someone said they would come and never did. Overall it was a very nice stay. Would stay here again if the pool actually had sun on it. The pool area was very nice. Very clean house. Loved the front porch and the fresh ocean air. Need to have more containers with lids for storage. The location was absolutely perfect ! So close to the beach and if we wanted to go out felt like it was very close to everything."

"First four days (out of 7) spent trying to get help from Beach Retreats with the pool pump, major appliances that wouldn't work properly, and poorly stocked home with very little in the way of basic necessities. Furniture is old and needs replaced, sagging cushions, etc., hardly a "luxury home" but you'll pay "luxury home" prices. Will never rent from Beach Retreats again."

"We had a lovely time in this vacation home. The pool was great. Holmes beach access was so close (like 100 steps) and beach was amaaaaazing. We had a lot of fun playing ping pong too! The home had everything we needed in terms of cups plates, pots and pans. We did need to bring other items like soaps, shampoos, paper towels (they give you the small sample shampoos and one paper towel roll to start with), coffee pods for the Keurig or filters if you use the coffee maker, some spices, etc but it was only 4 min away from the closest grocery store so it wasn’t an issue. They were also great about letting us check in at 2p instead of 4 since our flight came earlier in the day. Overall great stay!"

"The property suited our needs. The elevator was very useful. The kitchen was very well stocked. There were several large tables and chairs that our group of six used quite often. The pool area was beautiful. Location and proximity to the beach was a real positive. There were labels everywhere that made our stay easier. Our group loved staying at this property."

It is a short walk to AMI Beach Cafe and an quick, easy drive to many restaurants around the island. The backyard pool is fun both during the day under a canopy of palm trees or at night, swimming as it lights with fun colors. We were two families with 8 people total and the house was a great size and had everything we needed."

"We spent our vacation on AMI right after Hurricane IAN, so we were still dealing with some restrictions on the island. Claire managed to make our vacation the perfect vacation we had hoped for despite all odds. Starting with an alternative accommodation when our vacation home was still without electricity in the first days to the perfect care on site. The cottage itself was fantastic as always. Perfect location close to the beach and a wonderful large balcony for relaxing evenings and a shady outside breakfast in the warm morning breeze. Thank you to the entire team for a wonderful vacation! We will definitely come back to AMI with beach retreats."

"We rented for a long weekend to celebrate my husbands 60th bday. The location of this house was perfect, it was a short walk to semi private beach and less than 5 min drive to Publix to pick up supplies. The pool and 2 balconies really put us in vacation mode. The ice maker didn't work, but a quick call to beachretreats & a bag of ice was delivered. Stocked with all kitchen supplies. There was a party at a nearby house playing music & cars lining the street. Assuming it is a town ordinance, by dusk the music stopped & cars departed."

"Stayed at this property 5 years ago and enjoyed it so much we wanted to return. Three words to describe this house would be location, location and location. 40 steps to the sand, 60 steps to the Anna Maria trolley stop and you can walk or bike to several Of the nearest restaurants, ice cream shops or adult beverage stores. Amenities on the inside are top notch and everything about the property is very user friendly. Would recommend highly to any group of 9 or fewer. Not one single issue with anything all week."

"What a wonderful vacation rental home. While the house is not directly on the beach it is less than a minute walk. The location is about halfway between two public access areas and most of the crowds stay close to the public area making the area near the house a very quite and clean area even on the 4th of July when the other areas were very crowded. We spent most of the time on the beach but were able to go to the house for lunch and no one touched our stuff we left on the beach under the tent. Late in the afternoon when we returned the the house and the family was able to enjoy the evening hours in or around the pool. The beach sunsets are fantastic! The house has a nice layout. Breakfast every morning on the front porch with a view of the beach and evening dinner in the back by the pool. The house is well supplied with with lots of items from pool towels to lots of toys for the kids. We had a couple of minor maintenance issue that should have been reported by the previous renters but Clair and her teams got them fixed quickly! We really enjoyed our stay and hopefully we will be able to repeat this trip."

"Love this home! We stayed a week and had an amazing time. The house is more than fully stocked and so spacious for a large family stay. Tons of beach & pool toys including beach chairs, cooler, and a cart to carry items to beach. The only complaint we have is the spare bedroom upstairs with the queen size bed has a broken mattress on it. You roll to the center of the bed which makes the bed extremely uncomfortable. Get that fix & you have to best house on the block. Again such an amazing home!"
