My wife and I snuck away for an impromptu holiday getaway with our 2 youngest daughters (H.S. age). This house is great. The location is perfect. We took coffee and walked out to the beach every morning. 2-3 min walk. And when our girls were swimming or sunning or building something in the sand they could easily walk back to the house to use the bathrooms, grab a sanwich or retrieve something they forgot.
It's a quiet neighborhood. It's nice and spacious for 4 people, but probably not good for any more than that. The kitchen and bathroom remind me of when I was a kid in the 1970s, but everything worked perfectly and there was nothing "wrong" with any of it. Honestly, it wouldn't be worth the increased price to have a remodeled kitchen, so I hope it stays this way as long as it's functional. We all liked the heated pool and the nice deck behind the house. And the bikes, pool and beach accessories worked out great. We actually donated a brand new umbrella to the cause. So if you forget something, check the downstairs area before you go buy a new item. There might be one in there for you to use.
Trying to find something bad to say...there wasn't any dish soap. My wife says it's "dated", but she didn't mind. That's all we can think of.
This house is a nice, clean, quiet home away from home. It has all the amenities. Wifi and cable worked fine. If you need luxury and all the latest styles, this might be a little on the simple side. But we loved it and will request this house next time we're on aMI.

The true highlights of this unit are it's location relating to both the beach and shopping/ dining, and the wonderful pool and pool deck. The inside of the unit was workable, but dated. The shared laundry downstairs was new and excellent. March of 2013 was cold, so we spent a lot more time by the pool than at the beach. Read more

The unit is very well located with respect to cafes, shopping, the downtown part of Holmes Beach and the beach. I counted my steps from the front door, down the stairs and to the beach . . . it is, literally, two hundred and fifty (250) steps from the beach. The new pool is great and well maintained and the shower by the pool really is the best one in the house. Our only reservation is that the unit is getting a little run down and could use updating and TLC. Read more

Location was wonderful. Away from traffic, very
close to the beach. Could hear the waves from the deck
Amenities were so-so. Cookware was a mix bag of things. TV was old and was found disconnected (likely by the previous guest). Cable box was not working. There was really no way to connect the dvd player to the TV directly and a round about way to connect it via the VCR. Never did figure out how to watch DVD's.
We wish we knew what cleaning supplies, paper products etc. were provided up front and what we were responsible for. For the money charged, put in a 40 gallon garbage bag if you are only going to provide one bag.
Had issues with keys - one of the key to the property was not correct. Trying to figure that out at 10:00 pm w/ no light was interesting
Bob, the maintenance guy was very helpful and courteous. I understand mistakes happen, just didn't expect them with the keys
The staff was very courteous and helpful
I would rent from Island Vacation again, most likely not this house. There are some on the 3200 block (Tiki, Valhala) I'd like to try. They looked nice Read more

Well-kept property within a stone's throw of the beach

Besides that it is a well-kept unit, the short walk to the beach makes it perfect for families with small children. Also, the rental agency immediately responds to any issues you might have. For example, our unit was short on washcloths, and the rental agency provide some within one day of notification. It is on a quiet street in a nice neighborhood. The availability of beach chairs and other beach accessories makes it easy on the packing. Read more
