Our guests return year after year!

With excellent proximity to the beach and nearby shops and restaurants this property is ideal for all ages. The locals call the area 'the golden triangle' as you can walk from our property to the beach and walk only 5 minutes walk to the beach café serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, numerous restaurants, cocktail bar with live entertainment, the library, the post office, the bank, numerous boutiques and shops, but yet is in a quiet residential area and not the 'touristy' part of the island.

The islands grocery stores Publix and Walgreens is just 1 minute drive South with a shopping plaza with many restaurants and stores.

There is also a free trolley stop conveniently located at the end of the block that takes you all over the island, the daily service runs from 6 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. every 20 minutes from the Anna Maria City Pier on the north to Coquina Beach on the south. Trolleys offer both air conditioned and open-air seating. It’s safe, fun and free and an excellent way to get around and enjoy Anna Maria Island.

The property is ceramically tiled throughout. The property has three king beds, one queen bed, and four twin beds. All bedrooms have the convenience of their own cable TVs.

The private, secluded pool area is the perfect sun trap, with tropical landscaping you really know you are in paradise. The pool is ideal for the kids, with convenient ledges to sit on.

With only steps to the sugar white sand beach, the property is so convenient to pop back and forth and truly live Island style.

Enjoy the breath taking sunsets each evening from the beautiful powder sand beach. Anna Maria Island is a very special island, with its dolphins, manatees, and an abundance of wildlife, a glorious beach, magical sunsets, lush landscape and warm people.

Although quaint the Island has a fabulous choice of restaurants, excellent fishing, fishing piers, and boating and water-sports, the list is really quite endless.

So forget all your worries, kick off your shoes and please enjoy our beautiful beach home.

About Gavin Fraser

We found our piece of Paradise when we found Anna Maria Island, so much so we left our homes in Ireland and the UK to reside here. No more dreary wet weather, just great Florida sunshine. Our families and friends love this property, it has changed quite a few lives. We know it will change yours. Anna Maria is Magical!

Gavin Fraser purchased this house in 2004

Why Gavin Fraser chose Holmes Beach

Large open spacious living and bedrooms, ideal for guests of all ages from tots to the more senior ( all on ground floor level ), large private pool/patio area and so close to the sugar sand beach. Island life could not get any better.

What makes this house unique

Ground floor level....ideal for the grandparents and tots alike.

Two kitchens and two separate living areas.....ideal for older/younger guys/girls etc etc

Nice stay, but recommend improvements

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the home because of the location and pool. The owner was responsive to my questions. However, I believe some improvements could be made. For example, the unit had only the minimum amount of toilet paper for a couple of days and nothing else that you would normally find in a nice unit for cooking and cleaning, such as paper towels, salt and pepper, dish soap, etc. We had to purchase our own extra toilet paper as well as all other supplies. The towels needed to be cleaned and dried by 10:00 a.m. on the day of check out but there was no laundry soap provided. We paid extra to heat the pool. There was a charcoal grill but no charcoal. These things may be “minor” but they increased my frustration because we were travelling with young children and didn’t want to keep going to the store. Our damage deposit was returned five weeks after our stay ended due to needing to check electric bills, etc. I have not had these issues when staying at other units and I recommend that the owners change their practices to be more accommodating.

Outstanding clean, properly furnished, convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

Ideal ground level home to entertain a family of 3 generations. The pool area was perfect when the spring wind strengthen & temp dipped..Very comfortable when the beach was too cool. The grandkids loved the pool!

Kitchen was perfect & if needed we could store items in the second kitchen. The sound from active kids could not be heard from room to room. We recommend this home to my brothers family & will recommend it to any family that loves activities & Island life..

We will be returning!!!!

perfect place for our Golden wedding

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our stay in this lovely home. Plenty of space for our extended family, our Son, Daughter in law, Two grandchildren and their partners plus our three Great Grand children. There was plenty of room with enough space for us all to enjoy some privacy, especially valuable for my husband and I. The pool was fabulous, especially for the young children, Our five year old can now swim having spent most of his time in the pool. It was especially good that my husband was able to get in and out of the pool, being newly disabled following a Stroke, we were concerned that he may find it difficult. It`s our first time renting this house but I hope it won`t be the last. Perfect location to celebrate our Golden wedding anniversary, exactly 100 of my steps to the beach and within walking distance of restaurants and the cafe on the beach for breakfast. Hurricane Hanks is good value with excellent food. So pleased when we arrived, after a very long journey, to find the home spotless and exactly as described, sadly this hasn`t always been our experience of rental properties. Plenty of GOOD linens and towels and both kitchens are well stocked. (I hope we managed to return everything where it belonged). What more can I say in praise of this lovely property other than; I can`t wait for next year, we`ll definitely be back.

Fantastic Rental for a Large Family

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property to have a family reunion with all of our children and their partners. This home is very spacious with two kitchens, living rooms, dining rooms so everyone also had private space when they chose to. The hosts were extremely prompt with all questions. Highly recommend and will be renting again!

Very nice rental

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week with our four children and our grandchildren and really appreciated the roominess of this house. The two separate living room/ bedroom /kitchen area is great for those who are looking for a quiet place away from the group and it is also nice for little ones who need to nap during the day. The beach is beautiful and is just a 3 minute walk from the house and having the pool with little ones is also a bonus! This is a very nice, clean, well equipped house with lots of towels and beach towels. Your house is lovely and we appreciated being able to rent your home!

Great place for a big, four-generation family!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay in this house - close to the beach, well-equipped, comfortable. The two living rooms allowed us to "get away" from each other (important, with a youngster, really old folks, a teen and the two generations in between!)

We made and served Thanksgiving dinner for 24 without crowding each other in the kitchens or at the tables. We plan to rent here again.

Car: recommended

The FREE island trolley runs every 20 minutes up to 10.30 at night. The nearest trolley stop is just 60 yards away....perfect for exploring the entire island with so many varied restaurants and the gorgoeus sugar sand beach and aqua gulf.
