What makes our rental home special? The photos below do that for the most part, but don't do the home justice. The views of the Gulf from the master bedroom and master bath are amazing! The serene blue-green Gulf waters...the brilliant orange and blue sunsets...the smell and sound of the surf...will lower your blood pressure and make you feel good to be alive!

My husband and I love the beach - Negril, Jamaica, and Ocean City, New Jersey are our favorites. When we retired we looked for a place that had the best of both beaches - we found it in Bradenton Beach, Florida. It is safer than Negril, and less crowded and less commercial than Ocean City. My husband says it reminds him of the Jersey shore in the early 60's.

The beach is 170 steps from our door (my gait!), and is never crowded, not even during the peak winter season. It almost feels like it's our own private beach. The home has every beach accessory - chairs, lounges, umbrellas, carts, beach toys and towels.

Everything on the Island is accessible via the free open-air trolley that runs by our house every 20 minutes. There are fishing piers and marinas for those who like to fish. They say Anna Maria Island has the best fishing on the West Coast of Florida.

Like to shop? World-famous St. Armand's Circle is 15 minutes away. Prime Outlet (130 designer and brand-name outlet stores) is nearby,where shopping will not threaten your vacation budget.

Have kids, or just want to act like one? Busch Gardens is one hour away, and Disney World is a flat 2 hour drive.

About Jen or Joe

Here I am again on our beach!

Jen or Joe purchased this townhome in 2008

Why Jen or Joe chose Holmes Beach

As I said above, my husband and I love the beach, especially here at Bradenton Beach on Anna Maria Island. Bradenton Beach retains the rustic qualities that made Cape Cod and the Outer Banks of North Carolina famous with beach lovers.

What makes this townhome unique

The Guest Reviews say it all.

A beautiful home in paradise............

  • 5 of 5

This property really is a lovely place to spend time. The attention to detail in this home is amazing. There are all of the creature comforts that you have at home plus lots more. It's been lavished with lots of care and because of that there is nothing more that you could want for. It's a very roomy and airy house, filled with light. The kitchen is brilliantly equipped so if you decide to cook at home you can. The living area and dining room are great spaces too. The bedrooms are a good size, the master bedroom is enormous. There is beach equipment including carts and chairs so that you can get down to the beach with everything you'll need. A table tennis table is in the basement for your use. The beach is close by, it's a wonderful beach - white sand, palm trees, warm water and lots of wildlife to watch. Jen and Joe are wonderful hosts, they were very kind and helpful to us and made us very welcome and our stay a brilliant one.

Anna Maria Island is a wonderful place to stay. The free trolley bus is brilliant you hop off and on where you like and it goes all over the island. Whilst on AMI we ate at the Rod and Reel Pier, it was really good food. Mr. Bones was really good too. The eatery on Coquina Beach was good too......breakfast with the palm trees and white sand....wonderful!

A Perfect Tropical Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this ideal Bradenton Beach home. We spent a little over two months in this lovely,, exquisitely furnished home. Our hosts were eager to help us enjoy our stay at every turn. One block away is a beautiful, wide white sand beach. Our hosts furnished beach chairs, carts, towels and pretty much anything we wanted. The home itself has 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths and a newly installed elevator. The kitchen is equiped with the finest appliances. The home has 4 flat screen televisions. It has 4 lanais. It truly is a perfect setting to kick back and relax. And now it has its own swimming pool -- new this year. I hope to return next year.

Best Birthday Celebration EVER

  • 5 of 5

My 2 brothers, 1 sister and their spouses, and I wanted to celebrate what would have been our Dad's 100th birthday. He and Mom wintered in this area for many years. Now we all know why. It is a beautiful location. We were pleasantly surprised when we entered this lovely home and met the owners. Joe and Jen were so gracious and helpful. The home was immaculate and well furnished; it was spacious enough for each of us to have our own private time. Beautiful white beach across the street and a free trolley will take you anywhere on beautiful Anna Maria Island. We all loved every minute of our stay and are thinking about returning for Mom's 100th. We were worried about all 7 of us being together for 8 days. We come from all over the country and hadn't been together like this since we were kids. The home and area were so relaxing, there was not a harsh word spoken. What a place for a reunion!!!

One of the Best on the Island!

  • 5 of 5

We were not expecting such a WONDERFUL place when we booked this home. It is lovely....very large! Balconies are everywhere and there is even a gulf view off one of them. Everything you could possibly need for a fun beach stay is here. A very short walk to the sandy beaches. The island trolley takes you up and down AnnaMaria, or just walk. The owners were gracious and knowledgeable about the area, too. We would stay here again and again!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family of grandparents, two adult children and the grand children. The home was well equipped with necessities and with beach going gear. We cooked each night in the well outfitted kitchen and played every day on the beach (one short block away). The owners are easily available, but never intrusive. A major grocery store and two drug stores were a short drive away, restaurants within walking distance. A perfect spot!

There is plenty to do here. The restaurants are great. Everything on the Island is accessible via the free trolley that runs by our house every twenty minutes.

There are fishing piers and marinas for those who like to fish or want to rent a boat, jet ski or fishing equipment. They say Anna Maria Island has the best fishing on the West Coast of Florida.

For the golfers there is a par-3 on the Island and 26 challenging courses nearby.
