When you take a break from the beach, you can appreciate the spacious living room and open kitchen with artistic granite counter tops. Or cozy up with a book next to the fireplace in the den.

The two master bedroom suites, each with a dressing area, bathroom, and street-side balcony, are the perfect place to rest after a long day in the sun. Both bedrooms have striking white plantation shutters.

The master bedroom, with queen-size bed, is decorated in luxurious Tommy Bahama style, and also has two dressers and a fully supplied desk for your computer.

The second bedroom suite has two twin beds with inviting blue, yellow and green quilts and beach-style white furniture.

The lovely den has a queen-size sleep sofa, a comfortable arm chair with footstool, a fireplace and a flat screen TV on the wall.

“This condo and beach are the the best of the best, great set up,awesome vacation spot!”

Reviewed 13 Jun 2017

This was our second year staying here and we absolutely love it! The beach is clean and not crowded at all even on a holiday weekend. The weather is excellent and so much to do on the island. We rented a paddle board for the week, which was delivered and picked up for us! So nice! This is a true vacation but also like being at home...less expensive than a hotel and you can cook meals for a lot less than going out all the time. It's nice to be able to do a load of laundry if you need to. It's nice to not have to bring towels, beach chairs and umbrella, it's already there! The view from the lanai is spectacular, we spent a lot of time out there, we ate our meals there,played cards, watched sunsets. Bedrooms are so comfortable ,bathrooms are spacious,TV in every room, books to read, just so convient and relaxing.

Response from the owner I love the quiet beach, also. And I am delighted that you found the condo spacious, convenient and relaxing. I try to make continuous updates to make our guests' vacations even more pleasant.

Es handelt sich um ein typisch amerikanisches kleines Condo direkt am Strand mit einer sehr gemütlichen Einrichtung und einer nahezu komplett eingerichteten Küche. Das Beste war der Balkon, der es uns erlaubte, alle Mahlzeiten draußen einzunehmen und groß genug war für einen großen Esstisch und zwei Liegen. Die Vermieterin ist jederzeit telefonisch erreichbar und ist sehr hilfsbereit.

Response from the owner Thank you for your compliment: "The landlady is reached by phone anytime and is very helpful." We are also happy that you enjoyed having your meals outside on the large balcony. Marilyn

“The perfect rental for a memorable vacation on the beach...”

Reviewed 12 Mar 2014

Marilyn maintains high standards for her rental: meticulously well kept and clean, warm cozy atmosphere, well stocked modern kitchen and bathrooms, and large lanai. Location right on Holmes Beach means long walks on the white sand beach and beautiful sunsets. What I liked best was being able to walk to stores, restaurants, and the local library. Take it from someone who traveled extensively, Marilyn's beach front property is the perfect place for someone who wants a relaxing vacation in a beautiful area. There's also lots to see and do if you are willing to travel a few miles to the high end shopping areas and museums.

Response from the owner Thank you for your great review - and for being perfect guests. We think this is the ideal location, also. We hope you will return to the "white sand beach and beautiful sunsets." Marilyn

“Wonderful condo on a beautiful beach!!”

Reviewed 22 Oct 2013

The condo and location are beautiful. The condo is spacious and very well maintained. We especially liked the large bathroom with double sinks located off the master bedroom. The lanai was wonderful. My girlfriend spent hours on the lanai relaxing. This condo is located right on the beach, and it's one of the prettiest beaches we've ever seen. We can't wait to go back.

Response from the owner ...Loved having you as guests. Please return soon. Marilyn

“A week of comfort and relaxation with gorgeous sunset views, bab”

Reviewed 2 Oct 2013

Marilyn, thank you so much for sharing your fabulous condo on anna Maria Island. The condo was so well kept and complete with every convenience. It was such a delight to have the storage room so handy to the beach and it was wonderful to find the kitchen stocked with spices and vinegars and other cooking basics. The beds were very comfortable and the closets provided plenty of space. The sitting areas, lovely dining room and screened deck provided hours of pleasure and the dolphin-filled water and sunset views were amazing. Your attention to detail was apparent in each room and your care made our visit totally luxurious and enjoyable. And, as if that were not enough, you provided us with your lovely upstairs neighbors, Nancy and Gordon and Matthew who were so friendly,fun and helpful.

Response from the owner …So happy you had a wonderful island experience! It's a joy to share this wonderful condo with others, especially when they love it so much. Please return soon. Marilyn

“Very nice place for a vacation right on the beach”

Reviewed 25 Sep 2013

We wanted a peaceful and comfortable place right on the beach - Marilyn's place is very nice, spacious and clean. A lot of design details such as dimming lights in bathroom showed how much the host cares for her guests. The location is convenient, it is not far from grocery stores and supermarkets. Overall, it's a great vacation choice!

Response from the owner We're so glad you enjoyed our beach and the peaceful beachfront location. We hope you and your wonderful family will return for another great vacation.

“Superb anna Maria Island Condo right on beautiful Holmes Beach.”

Reviewed 19 Jul 2013

We have chosen to return to this superb condo for over 12 years because it is much more than just a condo rental. It is a beautifully appointed beach condo. Designer decor, yet also designed for comfort & everyday life at the beach. Upgrades each year, and many extras, such as large, furnished, screened lanai, with ceiling fans & a spectacular view. It is right on the beach - the white sand & blue-green Gulf of Mexico, in a quiet section of Holmes Beach. You can actually spot dolphins playing in the water. Location is also close to many restaurants, shops, fishing from beach or piers, marinas, library, and bike & kayak rentals. You can be as busy, or as restful, as you choose to be.

Response from the owner It has been a pleasure to have you as guests for many years. I'm happy that you enjoy the beach, dolphins and sea turtle nests so much. And, yes, the views from the screened porch are awesome! Marilyn

“Your search for an amazing place to stay in Holmes Beach ends he”

Reviewed 12 Jul 2013

My wife and I, along with her mother vacationed here in June 2013. From the moment we turned the car off in the driveway we were simply amazed. The view from this condo is remarkable, the accommodations were outstanding, and I honestly couldn't think of a negative aspect of our vacation if I had to. The condo was so very clean and decorated exquisetly, not to mention there is a fully stocked store room down on the beach level. This was such a great benefit because we didn't have to worry about travelling with beach chairs, umbrella's, etc. Marilyn, the owner, went above and beyond what was expected, by not only making the booking process extremely easy and providing for any and every need inside her home, but by offering many suggestions for places to go and things to do. During our stay she even took the time to check the weather in our area and offer suggestions on things to do on a rainy day. As I said, we would be hard pressed to find any negative aspects of our vacation, and we can't wait to come visit this little piece of heaven again very soon!

Response from the owner We love the island, too, and are pleased to help our guests out with suggestions. And we agree - the Gulf and beach views are amazing. Please visit again soon.

“Great Location”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2013

I loved staying at this condo. It was in a great location, right on the beach, close to parks and great seafood restaurants (like the Sandbar). The condo itself was clean, beautiful, and very spacious. I liked sitting on the lanai and watching the ocean for dolphins and pelicans in the morning. I had a wonderful time. I will be staying here again.

Response from the owner So glad the condo, location, parks and restaurants were great. Please do visit again. Marilyn
