About Joe and Kim Vogel

Joe and Kim Vogel are the owners, having bought and renovated the property in 2016. They are empty nesters now, having raised 6 children. Joe is a consultant with WSP USA in Cincinnati. Kim taught art for many years and currently works out of her home as a painter. She also manages the new rental property.

Joe and Kim Vogel purchased this condo in 2016

Why Joe and Kim Vogel chose Holmes Beach

They fell in love with Anna Maria Island 3 yrs. ago when their youngest son got a job and moved to nearby Bradenton, FL. After a year searching for the perfect property, they found GULF BEACH PLACE 3. Needing to rent out the property the majority of the year, they knew they needed a gulf front or gulf view property.

The ocean "Puts everything in perspective."

What makes this condo unique

Having the ocean as the backyard is the greatest part of owning GBP 3. Kim wanted to turn the condo into a beachy oasis reminiscent of a "beach cottage". She wanted to bring the outside in, using soft blues and nautical decor. She also painted canvases of several popular spots on the island to give their home a personal touch.

Awesome condo with 2 lanai's. Fantastic location close to shopping and close to beach

  • 5 of 5

This place had everything we needed for our stay, well stocked kitchen and plenty of beach chairs and toys in the storage room. We loved watching the sunset from the rooftop deck!

Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over the Christmas holidays. Had to use a blow up mattress provided by the proprietors. There was plenty of room to set up the extra bed as well as clean sheets, extra bedding and plenty of pillows. Would have loved an open porch facing the ocean, but the roof top was a lovely place to see the water.

I loved this place. From the moment I walked in, I really felt a sense of calm. This second-floor 2 bedroom condo is in a quiet 8 unit building. The extreme cleanliness and updated soft beach decor add to the serene. There is a peekaboo view of the ocean from the lanai, but the most spectacular unobstructed ocean view is from the roof-top deck, which is one flight up. The owners were very responsive to our reservation request and any inquiries- very easy to work with. This condo has everything one would need for an extended stay and I can't wait to go back.

Perfect Island Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Every review prior to our stay was very accurate. The condo was very clean and the place was exactly the same as the pictures posted. Kim, the owner, was very quick to respond to all questions and concerns from the time we booked until we checked out. We were there for our daughter's destination wedding and it was located close to the venue and near the Publix grocery store and other amenities that we needed. Most importantly it had a very nice view of the Gulf and it was literally 90 steps to the beach which was not crowded and seemed to be used by people staying nearby. It was a quick walk down to Manatee Public Beach where we enjoyed all you can eat pancakes for $5.95 and a wonderful Thanksgiving Buffet. The owners thought of everything you could possibly need for a stress-free vacation. Both of the beds were extremely comfortable and the whole place was beautifully decorated with a fresh updated beach theme. We enjoyed the heated pool and access to a storage room with plenty of beach chairs and toys. There is an awesome rooftop deck with an awesome view of the Gulf, as well. I just can't say enough about this place, almost don't want to tell others about this best kept secret! If we ever return to AMI we will definitely rent from Kim again! You will not be sorry you picked this piece of paradise on the island!

We loved the condo- beautifully decorated and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We might have needed a third bedroom - our grandchild is growing, however, for a family who only needs two bedrooms it is perfect! Just steps from the beach - everything you need! Super close to grocery, pharmacies, restaurants- wish we had more time!!!!!
