About Myriam or Norman Castellano

My husband and I have enjoyed our Anna Maria home for many years, enjoying it as we raised our two children and now enjoying it with our grandchildren. We live in Tampa, and use the house most weekends during the summer months.

Myriam or Norman Castellano purchased this house in 1990

Why Myriam or Norman Castellano chose Holmes Beach

The home is meticulously cared for and is luxurious while still offering a relaxing, comfortable atmosphere with all the comforts of home. It is a single block home, so there are never any stairs to climb and the back yard is beautiful, yet low maintenance landscaping including a large wooden deck, a heated pool, and a paved patio with a wood burning stove. In addition to all that, we are located on a large, corner lot, one block's walk away from the beautiful, white sand beaches. We provide beach chairs, umbrellas and anything else you might need during your stay.

What makes this house unique

Heated pool, private outdoor shower with hot water. Very large, shaded wood deck with gas grill, dining table, and fully lighted for outdoor enjoyment. Single story, NO STAIRS. Covered carport. Corner lot in a quiet neighborhood. Pets are not allowed. This is a tobacco-free property. We collect 6.5% Florida sales tax and 5% Tourist Development tax.

A dream vacation at Holmes Beach in sunny Florida!

  • 5 of 5

We truly loved using this VRBO for a week in sunny Florida!

The owners were so kind and easy to make arrangements with. Their home was all that the photos showed and more. It was very clean, well stocked and in a great location just a short walk to the beach.

Some of our favorite family vacation memories include:

Enjoying their wonderful backyard pool,

Spending time at the beach,

Collecting many unique sea shells,

Watching unbelievably gorgeous sunsets,

Grilling, drinks, and relaxing on their spacious deck,

Playing games that were in the rental, (we never even had time to enjoy the huge selection of movies and books there),

Touring the beautiful area,

Coming home with clean clothes....as we used their laundry facilities,

Thanks for the memories! 😊👍🌞

Fantastic place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time in this house. It has all kinds of interesting things to look at. there is a lot of room to spread out. Our teen age girls stayed in one side of the house and we were on the other. the pictures don't do justice to the beauty of the backyard - it is beautiful. this is also a very quick walk to the beach. the house has everything you could need!

Wonderful home and proximity to the beach, the best of both worlds

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home is close to the beach and perfect for those who want to spend time swimming and walking along the shore. We were also grateful that the short walking distance allowed us to retreat easily to the shade and quiet of the lovely grounds and back deck area to read and relax. This spot was perfect for our vacation, -- three adult women, taking a break from our busy lives and seeking a relaxing, quiet environment. The drive from Tampa airport was easy. There are interesting parks close by and local amenities such as a Publix and several churches. The home is well outfitted with everything you could possible need. The hosts are gracious and very responsive.

Elegant, classy and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything that we needed for a relaxing, comfortable vacation on AMI! Can't say enough about the backyard! It was beautiful, comfortable and fun to hang out in with a great heated pool and plenty of areas to hang out. We loved the outdoor shower complete with hot water! It was a pleasure to see how much detail the owners have put into their beach house, and obvious that it is not just another rental. The kitchen was well stocked and the property included many other amenities such as WiFi, beach chairs, etc. The owners were helpful and responsive, and great to work with. The island of AMI itself is like no other we have encountered. Not just for it's natural beauty, which is abundant, but for the wide variety of things to do and the quaint design of the little town. We can't wait to return to this lovely house soon and, hopefully, make some more wonderful memories!
