About Monique Gutierrez

Owners live on the Island and can address any issues quickly .

Why Monique Gutierrez chose Holmes Beach

Very comfortable home on a large ( .6 acre) shaded and private lot which is walking distance (2 blocks) to gift shops, 5 restaurants, 2 banks, barber shop, hardware store, rental store, art gallery, and a dentist.

What makes this house unique

Even if the weather is bad, you can just relax and enjoy the view of the beach. You can see the sunsets from inside the house, but it's more fun while sipping your favorite beverage under the Tiki Hut.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A wonderfully appointed and clean house with a million dollar view. We love this time of year when not so busy on the Island. This is our 4th vacation at Shady Pines. We always stay two weeks and have gotten to know the owners, Monique & Bob. It has everything you need for a relaxing stay. It is private, yet close to restaurants and shopping. You can park your car and use the free trolley! We will be back !

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful views with the perfect location. Stayed here with my wife and 2.5 year old son. Very convenient to walk out onto the secluded beach and walk back in for a short break or to make lunch under the tiki hut. Many restaurants and shopping very close. We rented an electric golf cart which made exploring the island fun and easy, would recommend it. Monique was a pleasure to work with. We will be back soon.

Quiet and Serene

  • 5 of 5

This home is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the stunning views of the Gulf. The bed linens, towels, and kitchenwares were all high quality. The location was quiet. Compare to other rentals and you will find that the price is not unreasonable. It is well worth the money to enjoy the water and view from the first waking moment of each day until retiring to bed. Stroll to the Tiki hut at first light and witness the water changing colors as the sun rises, sit and remain dry while still being able to hear the waves crash on a rainy day under the Tiki hut, or watch a moonlit sky reflect on the water as you sit with loved ones under the hut. There is no hauling wagons or gathering the entire family for a few hours per day at the beach. Tip: Rent two weeks if at all will wish you had once you are there!

Better than you expect!

  • 5 of 5

Best location on the island! Walk out the back door to a fantastic tiki hut and a few more steps and you are on a quiet section of beautiful beach. The home is modern and in great condition in a quiet neighborhood. The kitchen has everything you could need. Both gas and charcoal grills are available. Several restaurants and bars, a liquor store, fish market, convenience store and shopping are all within a short walk. The owners are nearby and available should you have questions or need anything. You won't want to leave. We will definitely be back!

Great beach house

  • 5 of 5

The description does not do it justice. Shady Pines is a classic beach house directly on the gulf. The location could not be better. And if the sun becomes too much, the tiki hut offers shade without loss of the view. The house is clean, well appointed, and the owners take care to maintain it well. Inquiries or concerns get a quick and friendly response. The island has a nice mix of restaurants and activities. Much is within walking distance; all within biking range. We look forward to returning.

Shady Pines Is The Best!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stay at Shady Pines each year and it's the highlight of our year. It is an outstanding beach front property. We love it and look forward to it each year. There are plenty of neat restaurants on the island, but we also enjoy just hanging around the beach and the tiki hut. Bob and Monique are great hosts and we have enjoyed getting to know them over the years. It's a must for us each and every year!
