About Katherine Girgenti

Our families have been coming to Anna Maria Island since before the mainland bridges were constructed, coming onto the island by way of ferry! Needless to say, we are very attached and proud of our little island. We live in Tampa with our two children and look forward to time spent on AMI during the summer months.

Why Katherine Girgenti chose Holmes Beach

Only a short, direct walk to the beautiful, pristine beaches of AnnaMaria Island, this home is centrally located, in a family friendly neighborhood with all of the conveniences of home. Three spacious bedrooms, two with queen size mattresses, the third with two double beds. Big closets, and plenty of drawers to fit comfortably for your stay. Two bathrooms are recently renovated. The master has a beautiful, tiled shower stall, the common bath, also renovated has a tub that's perfect for adults or children.

The kitchen is full of bright, natural light, with a big beautiful picture window We love to cook, so you should be able to find everything you need in this kitchen! The cozy family room is also full of natural light, looking into the large, covered porch in the center of the house. There is a full washer and drier adjacent to the kitchen.

We have a brand new, large, rectangular sized, heated pool. It also boasts a wide sundeck, perfect for setting a chair in and dipping your toes in the warm water while enjoying a book or a fruity drink!

The large, fenced yard can also be enjoyed from the cozy, covered porch which is accessible from the master and twin bedrooms as well as from the sliding glass doors of the common areas of the house. This is a great feature for cool, breezy beach days, as the doors tuck away and create a huge outdoor area to be enjoyed by the entire family!

What makes this house unique

It is our pleasure to offer a discount to our service men and women! Don't forget to ask!

Our home is a classic example of a typical old Florida home; single story concrete block home with the Spanish tile, and the terrazzo floors throughout. It sits on 2 lots, which leaves us with a great size yard both in the front and in the back of the house. We have proudly brought it beautifully up to date, but have decided to keep it's original charm intact.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely beautiful. Great outdoor area, great location, within walking distance of everything imaginable. 2 blocks from the beach, 2 blocks from great restaurants. Katherine and her Husband were very responsive when I had questions. Definitely look forward to staying here in the future again as Anna Marie Island will now always be a yearly trip!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This place was even better than advertised! The owner was incredibly helpful in the lead up to the trip, answering all of our questions and providing great recommendations. The house itself was exactly what were looking for - beautiful pool and backyard, lovely covered outdoor dining / bar area, comfortable beds, and all of the amenities we needed (pool toys, beach umbrellas, etc...). Beach is a quick 2 minute walk, and is immaculate - soft sand, warm water, perfect for kids. Can't wait to come back again!!

Perfect Holmes Beach Home!

  • 5 of 5

A true home away from home! We've stayed in many VRBO rentals over the last 10+ years and these homeowners top all the rest. Katherine and Joe clearly take great pride in their home and want others to enjoy it in the same way. Every detail has been thought of, from throw blankets in the living room to all the beach toys and accessories you could want. The bedrooms have tons of storage space and the beds are really comfortable. The backyard is amazing with the perfect pool and patio area. AMI is quaint and beautiful; we loved the quiet and more upscale Holmes Beach end compared to Bradenton Beach. The shops on Pine Ave are awesome... make sure you get a fresh, custom order donut in the morning! Our trip ended with the most spectacular sunset at Bean Point. We were so sad to leave and can't wait to come back!
