About Anna Prokop
Originally from Poland, we moved to Bradenton/Sarasota area in 2013 after living in Maryland's Washington DC suburbs for over 25 years. We have 2 teens and have discovered Anna Maria Island several years ago when coming to Florida for our annual amusement parks trips. After many visits to the Island we decided to move to the area permanently. We bought a farm in Myakka City which is next to Bradenton and Sarasota and moved there permanently in the Summer of 2013.
Anna Prokop purchased this House in 2011
Why Anna Prokop chose Holmes Beach
We found this house in 2011 as it was being built. We were attracted by two things: its size and comfort as it's much bigger than most 6 bedroom houses on the Island and by its unique Clark Lake location. Many people on the island don't even know that this lake exists because it is not readily visible from the street. The lake offers wonderful views and an opportunity to observe wildlife that frequents its waters. For instance, there is a gray heron that visits the yard each morning. It is very neat to watch it while eating breakfast.
What makes this House unique
Sarasota-Bradenton Florida, also known as the “culture coast,” is a melting pot of artists, executives, philanthropists, and beach-lovers from all over the world. The sugar-white sands and vast expanses of warm, shallow, aqua-blue waters draw people from the other side of the world to the center of the state. Though Sarasota-Bradenton is part of the greater Tampa-St. Petersburg metropolitan area, it has a style that is distinctly all its own, and is separated by the natural boundary of Tampa Bay. The well recognized Sunshine Skyway Bridge links Sarasota-Bradenton with its big brother to the north. Over 650,000 residents call Sarasota-Bradenton their home, in organic communities like Northwest Bradenton, to planned communities like Lakewood Ranch and Palmer Ranch to the south. Longboat Key is host to one of the wealthiest zip codes in the country. Siesta Key is known for its beautiful beaches and nightlife, where Anna Maria Island is a virtual melting pot of all types of people. If sports are your passion, the area host spring training baseball teams, offers endless water sports, fishing and boating, and has one of the highest saturation of golf courses in the country.

Gorgeous luxury beach home w/ all the amenities
We had a party of 12 that celebrated my birthday. The house was beyond gorgeous! The photos don’t do it justice. There was plenty of room for everyone to sleep comfortably and the kitchen was spacious enough to all gather around. The pool was amazing and we got great use out of the grill and ping pong table. I’ve never stayed at a house with better amenities. Everything was thought of from kitchen utensils, pots & pans to the beach chairs, pool toys, even a wagon for the beach supplies! They had bikes also which we didn’t end up using. House was a short two block walk to the most gorgeous beach. There was an issue with the garage door opener and Anna came and fixed it right away. We absolutely loved our stay and would love to come back.
Beautiful house. Great facilities. Would definitely recommend staying there. We had 14 family members staying for my sons wedding and nobody wanted to leave
Congratulations! I’m so happy everyone enjoyed their stay on such a momentous occasion. You left the house in great condition. Thank you. Come back anytime!
Wonderful property. Well stocked and comfortable. Pleasure for all of our extended family. Maureen
We have frequently rented on AMI. By far Emerald Seas property outshines any place we have been. Thankfull for the opportunity to visit again.
Wonderful property for our large family vacation
Our family of adults and children stayed at Emerald Isles for one week, and had an amazing trip. Anna has thought of everything: beach toys, chairs, buggies, wagons, umbrellas, etc. We made great use of the four bikes and even took the kayak out for a spin. The pool is heated and our kids played in it all day, every day. We loved the beach nearby too (it's a short pleasant walk). The neighborhood is quiet, friendly to pedestrians/cyclists, and very well maintained. We would return in a heartbeat.
Great House. Great Pool. Great Area
Loved the house and pool. Pond in the back is awesome for kayaking. Would definitely stay again.
You left the house in great condition. Come back anytime! Thanks. Anna
Travelers' Choice® 2013 Winner Islands
The barrier island of Anna Maria is an absolute slice of laid-back paradise. Golfing and fishing are two of the most popular tourist activities, though an afternoon lounging at Bean Point beach is a must-do too. The Anna Maria Island Historical Museum is a fun way to soak up some local history when you’re taking a break from soaking up the sun.
