About Harbor Lane Court

35 years ago, I moved to Anna Maria Island from North Carolina and rented one of these apartments for a few years. It was a great place to call home. Today, I own it and have restored the entire property as though I was going to live in it. We paid attention to details and created a home atmosphere at a vacation resort .I also have had a screen printing business on the island since 1985, so we're not absentee owners like a lot of rentals.We stop by daily to maintain the grounds and to make sure your needs are met. Enjoy our home!

Harbor Lane Court purchased this condo in 2015

Why Harbor Lane Court chose Holmes Beach

I inherited this property from my dear friend and business partner, John Lach, who passed away in 2015. I could have sold it, but knew it would probably be torn down and another huge party house would go up instead. My partner Olga and I knew what a great little resort it would make, and tried to keep as much of it's 1962 charm as possible, like refinishing the terrazzo floors. We put in all new stainless steel appliances and replaced the tubs with low curb showers to get in and out of easier. I really would love to live here myself!

What makes this condo unique

The resort is unique for it's Old Florida charm and relaxing grounds. All units are full apartments with a separate bedroom, and a sleeper sofa in the living room. 4 families can rent the whole resort and have it all to themselves for the same price as one huge house, then everyone has their own kitchens and own space if they want to get away and have their privacy.

Beautiful, relaxing, Florida

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at Harbor View, Holmes Beach. Joan and Olga were awesome to work w/ and were at the property every day, making sure pool was clean, grounds were kept up. We stayed in #4, as it accommodated our family of 4 perfectly (2 bedrooms, one w/ bunk beds, 2 bathrooms!). The condo seemed brand new - comfy furniture, excellent beds, newer appliances. There is not one time I thought - "I wish they had..." Especially in the kitchen, it is stocked w/ everything you need. Property is 2 blocks from beach, is located on a fairly busy road (note, we heard no traffic when inside, or at night). You could hear it if at pool, but we always brought music. Pool is small, but perfect for our family (and we had it to ourselves when we were there). First time to Anna Maria - had the charm of "Old Time Florida" - loved the atmosphere. Strongly suggest making a stop at The Donut Experiment (my fav - caramel icing w/ sea salt!! - warm and delicious!! Also strongly recommend Wicked Cantina (esp. if you like margaritas!), and would give Sandbar a "5" for beachfront dining, "4" for food. My husband and son went on charter (Cortez) - 8 - 2:00, caught about 60 fish, kept 25, had a blast! We grilled dinner 2 nights on property. Would also strongly recommend going to Bean Point for sunset/beach day - beautiful!! Sand that does not get hot (maybe b/c of quartz?) - awesome! Had a fantastic vacation, loved the property!!

Great rental with great location to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

My family of five had a great vacation at this property! The location is great with grocery store, CVS, and beach within a few blocks.

My kids enjoyed the pool! The pool is heated and at a comfortable temp. I wasn’t expecting the ocean to be as cold as it was. We had relatively cool weather but it didn’t matter with the heated pool.

The accommodations are great! Nicely furnished, beautiful, and clean. The owner is super responsive and helpful. Great to work with.

So nice to have laundry on site. We came home with clean clothes in our bags!

Make sure you stop in and have a cupcake at cupcake delights!

Thanks for a great vacation!

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Harbor Lane Court. Joan is great and was very helpful. The unit was immaculate, and very well set up. And the location is great, just a short walk up to the beach. I would definitely recommend this location.

Car: recommended

Our island is 2 hours away from Orlando's theme parks, Disney, and Sea World, and an hour away from Tampa and Busch Gardens. There is a miniature golf course, ice cream shoppes, shopping, lots of bars and great restaurants on Anna Maria Island, not to mention some of the most beautiful sugar white sand beaches in the world. We have a FREE trolley that runs from Coquina Beach (south end) to the Anna Maria City Pier (north end) from 7 am to 10 pm with stops about every 3-5 blocks, and picks up every approximately every 20 min. AMI is a much more laid back Old Florida kind of destination than many of the overgrown beach strands. It is truly paradise on the Gulf coast.
