About The Owner

My husband Cam and I live in a small town close to Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada. Cam has visited the island for the past five years. I have traveled to the island since I was a child and have many fond memories of my time spent on Anna Maria. We love that the island has preserved its old Florida charm and consider it to be our second home. Although we have seen some changes over the years what has not changed is the beautiful white beaches and relaxed family atmosphere. It is a place that will keep drawing you back, guaranteed!

We loved it....

  • 5 of 5

The unit was exactly as represented on the VRBO add. It is fully furnished / clean and everything worked. Ideal location. In spite of being a triplex the unit was quiet. We never heard the neighbors. Owner has made sure everything need for the beach is provided. The pool is a perfect size to relax in after a hot day at the beach. We spent most of our time at the Bayside Park. There you get to see up close - Dolphins / Manatee / sting rays leaping from the water / We watched as fishermen fought Tarpon and then brought them to the beach to remove hook and release them. We enjoyed our stay at this location so much we are booking it again for next year.

Three Lovely Weeks

  • 5 of 5

Although we have been to Anna Maria Island many times this was our first stay in this house and it was just perfect. It has everything you would need and more. The house is nicely kept and very clean. It was homely without being full of other people’s stuff if that make sense. We really enjoyed returning to the pool in the afternoon after being out and about. Such a bonus. No need to go and hire beach chairs or bikes, it’s all provided. The owners were very attentive and although nothing when wrong I just knew if it did there would not be a problem dealing with it.

The icing on the cake for us is location. We just love Holmes Beach. There is a good selection of bars restaurants and shops all within walking distance and because it’s in the middle of the island you are only a short trolly ride away from Pine Avenue at one end of the island or Bridge Street at the other end for all the other great places the island has to offer. It’s so nice not to have to use a car every day.

I would definitely return to this house for a future visit. Just got to get saving for the next trip.

The best value for your dollar.

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at this property for a week. Deborah was absolutely the best to deal with. Very well equipped with everything you could possibly need for a home away from home. It was clean and modern and the bedrooms were very spacious with walk in closets. Bedroom linens were all brand new bright and colourful quilts. Absolutely LOVED the clean and sparkling private backyard pool which was maintained by pool staff during our stay. The property is near the trolley stop, 2 blockas away from the gorgeous beach, and the 2 bikes included with the rental were used everyday exploring the Island. So much fun. I would recommend this property to anyone.

Amazing AMI

  • 5 of 5

What can I say, the house had everything we could of asked for and It was spotless.

The bedrooms are very large and the house is much roomier than it appears in the photos, lots of room for everyone.

The house is close to the beach 10 min walk. Local shops and restaurants are within walking distance. Deborah and Cam went above and beyond to facilitate us during our stay, and we are so grateful for their hospitality.

I will definitely be returning and would recommend to everyone.

2 months of AMI~ "wow"

  • 5 of 5

Cam and Deborah's home has been wonderful for us! This is the 3rd year we have stayed at their property. GREAT place and people to rent from! Deborah is very conscientious about making your stay as perfect as possible. If we have had any problems or concerns they were taken care of "via long distance" within 48 hours (or less). Their home is well maintained and the private pool with the lanai is the icing on the cake! Even better is the location on Anna Maria Island! Close to beaches, shopping, and MANY excellent restaraunts. If we are traveling to AMI, this will always be our "go to place." Looking forward to next year already! Walt and Gretchen Whitmer (February & March 2018)

Owner's Response: Thank you Walter, for your kind comments. Our highest priority is to ensure that our place is clean and our guests are well taken care of. And yes, our location is perfect! Since we are centrally located it is an easy to walk to the beach, tennis courts and the local restaurants. We look forward to hosting you again. Have a great summer! Sincerely, Cam and Deborah

Quiet gem!

  • 5 of 5

Place was spotlessly clean, bedrooms were spacious, and kitchen was very adequate for cooking. A big stash of books and dvds were available, and the pool was welcome on an afternoon where the beach was cool. Only a 10 minute walk to the beach, and close to a stop for the free trolley as well. We are already thinking about a repeat booking.

Come relax at Heliconia House and enjoy the beautiful warmth and sunshine of Anna Maria Island! You can start your morning going for a stroll along the beach or play a game of tennis at the nearby courts. Anglers can catch their breakfast by launching their boat across the street and go fishing in the sound. Or enjoy a leisurely breakfast at the Beach Cafe. Spend the afternoon lounging by your own private pool or comb the north end of the island for shells. In the evening walk to the many near by restaurants or grill your own grouper on the covered porch. The next day rent a sea doo and head to Egmont key or go para sailing over the gulf. There is so much to do you will just have to return. Of course, you can just lay out at the beach all week!
