Guestbook comments from the owner

Had an amazing week at this gorgeous house and wouldn't hesitate to go back. Have already recommended to friends and family. House itself is simply stunning and we straight away felt at home there. Had everything we needed for myself, husband and two daughters. The owner has thought of everything even down to pool toys and beach chairs and trolley etc. A week really isn't long enough. Spent most of our days on the beautiful beaches then returned to the house so the girls could play in the pool.

The owner Valerie is also lovely and fabulous to deal with. Good correspondence etc.

Can't wait to return.

The Most Phenomenal House and a Wonderful Stay!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a last minute booking and I am so grateful I had the hunch to search VRBO. I had never been to Holmes Beach but took a chance. Was it ever worth it! Communications with the owner, Valerie, was incredibly easy. Once we arrived to "The Lighthouse" all we could say is "Wow!". It is the most beautifully decorated house I have ever been in. What a treat! Each room is decorated in different styles with the common threads of beach, boats, British and things from the past. Very, very clean and lovely. I started each day climbing the stairs to the top and watching the sunrise while having my coffee. In the evenings I would walk the few blocks to the gorgeous beach and watch the sunset. The home has 3 bedrooms, easy stairs and roomy. The kitchen is large and was great to have meals in the large dining room. We were grateful to watch the Superbowl on the giant flat screen television. The garage is filled with beach supplies...a cooler, chairs and toys. There is a small pool here and a nice deck. All and all I would honestly say it is a bit of Heaven on Earth. I'm not exaggerating either. This place is truly a find and I am so grateful for our stroke of luck finding it. Thank you Valerie, we will surely be back! -Sandra & Marion

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week on AMI. My daughter son-in law and two grandchildren loved our stay at the Lighthouse. We were close to the beach and restaurants. Donuts made to order in the morning were a real treat. The house was beautiful and very unique. Everything was top notch! We enjoyed grilling while the kids splashed in the pool. I loved walking out on the balcony at the top of the tower and feeling the breeze from the Gulf. I would definitely recommend staying here !

Amazing house

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the most amazing houses I have ever stayed in. Beautifully finished and the attention to detail is second to none. Everything was exactly as advertised (if not better!) and whilst the pool isn't massive, my 3 children loved splashing about in it whenever they could and was plenty big enough for them.

The owner, Valerie who lives nearby, is so helpful. Available for advice if and when you need it, recommending restaurants and activities when we asked. She was very accommodating to our family and friendly too.

The house is a short walk from the beaches and easy to access (especially with the help of the beach equipment available in the garage-trolley, chairs, cooler etc) but you need to drive or catch the trolley (stop outside the house) if you want to explore the island further. Would definitely recommend this house if you're looking for a bit of luxury!

Our stay at the lighthouse was perfect in every way. We emailed Valerie with many questions before we arrived and alway got immediate responses. When she learned of our late arrival she even offered to pick up a few groceries so we would have something on hand! The lighthouse had everything we needed indoors and out. The detail in the house was incredible, to say the least. There were photos, framed posters and pictures, small lighthouses, books, old bottles, etc. everywhere. We saw new details every day! The pool was small, but the kids loved it and spent hours playing in it...and they were 10 and 11 years old! The walk to the ocean was short and everything we needed for the beach was in the garage and fit into the handy beach wagon. We love Anna Maria Island and the lighthouse topped off our stay. Thank you, Valerie!
