Anna Maria Island is one of the most visited barrier islands on Florida's West Coast. Sarasota International and Tampa International Airports nearby for easy access. The island is divided into 3 quaint little towns. Bradenton Beach, Holmes Beach, and Anna Maria, each have their own character. They all have one thing in common--pristine, sugary white sand beaches. The house is fully equipped, with washer and dryer. Just steps from the beach and also to the Trolley covering the entire island. Local artists are featured in gift shops, terrific waterfront dining, romantic sunsets, and one of the finest collections of beach bars anywhere. Relax, unwind, and truly get away from your daily stress. Melt.
Guests have full use of the entire house and furnishings.
We will be happy to answer inquiries and meet you as you check in. Phone numbers will be provided for emergencies. Owners live close by :)
The entire house is yours to use while you are here :) Our home is on the second floor....you park underneath it....so it has a flight of stairs. no elevator.
Interaction with Guests
We will welcome you at the door and help you with any rentals you may need from bikes to playpens........
Our little Island is very quaint and quiet. This is not a party home and the law enforcement are very strict about the noise ordnance here. We have great neighbors that live here fulltime and want to keep them happy too :)
There is a Free Trolley for you to hop on for the entire Island. After you park your car you really don't ever need to crank it again :)
Other Things to Note
There is an outside shower area for you to rinse off after being at the beach. Beach chairs are there for you to use also :)
Please treat our home as you would yours. Kick your shoes off and stay a while :) We stay there often too as you can tell by the family pictures :) NO SMOKING indoors please.
Gwen was very warm and welcoming, giving us a ton of tips on the neighborhood and the island. Her home was in excellent condition and was exactly as advertised. The cleaner that she uses is first rate and friendly. At one point during our month stay I managed to lock myself out of the house. Gwen responded to my text in about three minutes and helped my out of the jam. Much appreciated! Highly recommend her home.
We loved Homes Beach and the apartment was perfect! The hosts are wonderful and very engaging..We will be back again as soon as we can get back on their calendar!!!! The location was fun and the beaches beautiful...I would highly recommend this location, plus it was a bargain!!!!!
We had a great time at Ana Maria Island. The condo was really nice, close to the beach, had everything needed closeby. Gwen was very helpful and an excellent host! We especially liked the evening sun at the porch. It is close to a road, but we knew before and weren't bothered by the trafic. The bus (free) stopped right outside the house.
Very nice home - centrally located and has all the amenities that you need -would have been nice to have had a phone at the property for those renters from out of state to keep in contact but saying that it's not a deal breaker and we would defo rent here again on our next visit to AMI -you can't go wrong with renting Gwen's home..... the beach is a short walk away and the trolley bus is located outside of the home..
Das Beach Haus ist genau so wie auf den Photos eingerichtet.Schlüssel Übergabe fand nicht statt,da wir nicht "in Time"da sein konnten.war aber kein Problem,hatten mit Gwen telefonisch alles geklärt.Wir wussten, dass es an der Durchgangsstrasse liegt,aber die ständige Verkehrsgeräuschkulisse ist nicht zu ignorieren und war uns dann doch zu laut.Selbst schuld!Hatten wir unterschätzt.Nachts war O.K. Leider wurde das übernächste Haus gerade Kernsaniert.Ab 7.00 war an Schlaf dann nicht mehr zu denken,Presslufthammer und Baulärm...Die Baustelle gab es bestimmt nicht erst seit unserer Anreise,eigentlich sollte man anreisende Gäste davon informieren.
Das Küchenequippment ist auch etwas mager,die Pfannen waren derart verkratzt,und bei Teflon ist das nicht wirklich gesund!Es gab leider auch nur recht kleine Strandstühle ,keinen Sonnenschirm und keine Sonnenliege für den Strand(am Haus schon,jedoch nicht zum Transport geeignet)was wir Gwen auch gesagt haben,die meinte das die Gäste ständig den Schirm am Strand vergessen und sie einen neuen besorgen müsste...hat Sie aber nicht.Sie und ihr Mann haben ein wirklich nettes Restaurant TideTable an der Cortez Bridge wo es super frischen Fisch und nette Atmosphäre gibt zu moderaten Preisen.Sehr empfehlenswert!!Als Weinkühler gibt`s einen Gummistiefel mit Eis!!Hatten dort sehr gutes Essen!Fazit:Strandnahes ,nettes Beach Haus ,für einen Strandurlaub o.K.
Thank you for bringing this to my attention. My cleaning gals usually let me know when something needs to be replaced. I have purchased all new pots and pans and a salad spinner :) The construction next door was supposed to be done weeks ago...I blocked off several weeks of rentals for this to be done. We had lots of rain and they just could not finish the pool. I am sorry for the noise. I have replaced the beach umbrella "again"...seems as though guests leave it at the beach often and it just doesnt make it back to the house. Again, Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Gwen
Gwen and the house were perfect for us. Gwen offered plenty of advice on where to go and not go!! The house was better than described also better than the photos showed. We grilled out almost every night and ate outside in the screened in living room. The house is the perfect beach house. Gwen ows a beautiful and great tasting restaurant just across the bay called The Tide Tables. Amazing fresh fish and cold beers. It is right on the water with great views of the bay. I highly recommend the house, Gwen as a host, and the restaurant for all your Anna Maria Island needs. The location of the home is perfect for access to the beach and restaurants.
I have lived in Bradenton~Holmes Beach area my entire life and love it here! I would be glad to share my knowledge of the area with you to make your stay the best ever!!! I have favorite "locals' places I would be happy to share with you :)
