Our family of 4 stayed at Robert's characterful beach house for a week. We couldn't have wished for a better experience to start our Florida vacation. The home is full of American charm character, close to the beach and central on Anna Maria Island. Beds were comfortable and library has great reading material. Marc and family

Our family really enjoyed our stay at the Tucker house on Holmes Beach. It is literally just steps from the beach. The house is stocked with everything you will need for a worry free vacation, including beach toys and umbrellas. Robert responded within minutes of any questions we had. It is the perfect beach house no matter your age.

The house was great for us (6 adults and 6 kids). Everything was as expected. The house is well equipped and proved all that is needed for a great beach holiday. Robert is an excellent host. He responds quickly and is very flexible - we were able to come one day earlier at a very short notice.

Our entire group had a wonderful time, as the home was perfect for our needs and just a few steps from the water. It was a great vacation location! We all hope to make it back again in a few more years...

Fantastic days in an awesome house! There is everything you'll need for perfect Anna Maria Island days - very close to the beautiful beach, plenty of things for almost everything (kitchen stuff, towels, fridges, lots of space for up to 12 people, beach toys ... ), a nice barbecue and much much more. Thank you Robert for hosting us at your so individual and special place!
