About Ashley Burgan

I have been the Property Manager of this home since 2017 and work directly with the homeowners to ensure you have an amazing vacation.

I am originally from Ohio and have lived in the Bradenton/Sarasota area for 15+ years now. My husband and I met in college at UCF and immediately knew we wanted to move back to this area and start a family. Speaking of, our baby boy was born in August 2017! I’m so excited he will grow up playing on the beach with the sand in his toes.

Our family loves Anna Maria Island for its charm and it's cozy beach town with an Old Florida vibe. This relaxation spot has something for everyone – from white sand beaches, waterfront dining, boutique and souvenir shops, world-class fishing and diving, parasailing, jet skiing, and more! It’s an incredible opportunity to live in a destination where others vacation.

You can contact me directly with any questions. I would love to help you plan your next adventure and share our little piece of paradise with you. Inquire today!

The owner's purchased the home in 2013.

Why Ashley Burgan chose Holmes Beach

What's not to love about Anna Maria Island? We have incredible dining and gorgeous beaches. Enjoy a relaxed day at the beach and explore our quaint local shops. See the island from 400 ft up as you parasail the length of the island or charter a world-class fishing expedition. No matter what your idea of a perfect beach vacation is, you'll come to love our island paradise as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

Not only is the rooftop deck not to be missed, but not many people can say they have enjoyed good conversation, good company, in a great hot tub, on a wonderful rooftop deck, while taking in the AMAZING view!

Also, when you book with me, you will only ever communicate with me. No call centers, no auto attendants or press 1 for reservations – just me every time. I communicate via text, call, email, or social media. I am available for you when you need it. As I stated in my bio, I work directly with the owners, so there are no delays in our response, and I will make sure that you are taken care of and that you have an amazing stay with us.

Our stay at the "surf view" house was fantastic. Everything was as described and Ashley and her team were a pleasure to work with. There were 14 of us that stayed at the house and there was plenty of room for everyone. The location was fantastic as well. The beach was a short 3 minute walk and bars, restaurants were all within walking distance as well. I would certainly not hesitate to recommend this house to anyone.
