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.

Beautiful house and backyard!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 stayed the week of Christmas 2017. Everything was perfect! The house is amazing. We lived in the backyard and heated pool. Everything you need to prepare meals is available. We really appreciated the Christmas tree that was put up before our arrival and all the little extras. My family had a great Christmas and vacation. Super close to the beach. We felt right at home. We are already planning another trip back! Thanks so much for helping us have a memorable vacation!

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!

Super holiday house in great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as a family of 4 with a 3 and a 1 year old. The house was excellent and everything we wanted for our week on the island. Easy walk to the beach with beach buggy provided and a garage full of toys and stuff to do including fishing rods and a telescope- both well used through the week!

The house has everything we needed. The kitchen was well stocked with cleaning products and had all appliances and a huge washer and dryer which were so useful. We had towels for beach, house and pool. Beds were so comfy. Highlight for us was the pool area. Well heated everyday and the kids loved it. The outside eating area was so lovely. The house is really well thought out and decorated.

We had such a great time. Trying to work out how we can get back there soon! Thank you Katherine for a great stay.

Great house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in AMI! Our 8 year old daughter said we should give the house a poor review so that we can make sure it's available the next time we want to come back:)
