About John Carney

Our family is now on its 5th generation of family members calling Anna Maria our second home. This house is truly our extended family destination and we hope you enjoy the island and our home as much as we have over the years.

John Carney purchased this house in 2002

Why John Carney chose Holmes Beach

Walk to the most perfect beach in the US, quiet tropical street, private pool, and close to major airports.

What makes this house unique

We love having the pool in addition to the beach. Although nothing beats our great beach, its kind of nice to just hang with an adult beverage by the pool and have a BBQ with minimal hassle and convenience. But when it is beach time - 8 minutes walk and you are there, Best of both worlds. Plus we love the secluded, highly tropical feel of our street and heavy foliage.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great! Fully stocked kitchen.

Great service, friendly and professional

Excellent cleanliness, kitchen items,linens, condition of appliances

We loved the property and booked it again for next year!!:)

Owner and property management are exceptional!

We really enjoyed our stay. We had comfortable sleeping for all 8 of us. There was a thick memory foam cover provided that we used on the foldout coach. We found everything we needed, and felt well taken care of. The house is cute and roomy, and the walk to the beach is s breeze.

We enjoyed our stay... plenty of room allowed everyone their own space... outdoor pool was a major plus for our three kids and because we rented a golf cart we were able to have quick access to anything we wanted to do in town...thanks!

Happy Stay on Anna Maria

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four recently stayed at this particular property, and we were very pleased with the level of comfort, amenities, and proximity to beaches, shops, and activities. The house is well-kept and nicely decorated; it is also located on a quiet street with very little traffic. The multi-level design easily allows people their own space, and contributes to a more practical and user-friendly house type of feeling. The owner was extremely helpful and informative throughout the transaction, and the local property management company was diligent in welcoming us and encouraging us to contact them if there were any concerns. There were none, but it is nice to know they were eager to help if required. We have rented property numerous times on Anna Maria, and this ranks among the best to date. We would most certainly recommend this house to others considering an Island escape.
