Property Details

Location, Location (see map): There are seven miles of pristine, quartz sand beaches shimmering along our island and you’ll be sitting within walking distance. Nothing between you and the salty , azure waters but one sunscreen application and a pair of flips flops (You can see the beach access of 66th St from in front of the vacation home). You will have a short 5 minutes walk or 1 minute bike-ride to the beach.

But with this perfect located vacation home you also have the possibility to bring your boat or put your kayaks in the dock. Visit a sandbank with it`s wonderful shells or the Island of “Egmont Key” with it`s wildlife and amazing beaches. Or a paddle-tour with the kayaks through the azure sea, next to manatees and dolphins.

Prepare your drinks at home and walk to the beach for these incredible sunsets at the Gulf of Mexico. With this beachhouse you can have it all.

Refresh in the crystal-clear pool when coming back from the beach or boat-trip, relax in the quiet, tropical and spacious garden area while watching the springing fishes and herons in the canal. Keep sitting under the covered outside area at the pool when you will be surprised by this short “liquid sunshine of Florida” during your barbecue and enjoy.

You love to play tennis, walk to local shops or Restaurants? Both takes you only a 5 minutes short stroll as well.

Golf Players can enjoy the Key Royale Golf Clup within 3 minutes by car while the rest of the party walk to the beach or to the local shops or enjoy the peacefull atmosphere only a canalfront home can offer.

Hop a ride on the free and air-conditioned Island Trolley just arround the next corner. It runs from 6am to 10pm in a leisure loop through Anna Maria City, Holmes and Bradenton Beaches to take you anywhere around the area. Because it is so close to the vacation home you can use it as your “own private shuttle”.

The two guest bedrooms are ensuite with their bathroom while the master bedroom area has a private entrance, vaulted ceiling and a bathroom that features a glass-enclosed shower, Jacuzzi spa tub, and even a bidet. The master bedroom has a king size bed, the other two bedrooms have twin beds, which can be put next to each other.

The living area and one of the bedrooms have sliding glass doors to the pool deck and nice views of the canal.

The kitchen is well equipped with dishwasher, a glass ceramic stove, an oven, a side by side, a microwave, a toaster and a coffee-machine.

In the garage you will find a new washer (Frontloader) and a dryer for your convenience.

Free high speed internet access included. 3 LED TVs for your entainment.

Electric pool heater can be turned on upon request at an additional charge ($120 for the first week and $10 for each additional night plus tax) and shall be ordered at least one week prior to arrival.

The home sleeps 6 guests (maximum occupancy per Holmes Beach ordinance).

Home Away From Home by Kristen 12/28/2020
My family and I stayed at the blue house for 2 months. It was wonderful. The easy walk to the beach, the great food, fishing in the backyard after swimming in the pool. We can’t wait to return.
A perfect vacation home close to the beach by Marno 04/01/2019
We had a great time on Anna Maria. The location is perfect and close to all, beach, shopping , free Shuttle bus, tennis courts…. Well the home is from the sixties with its old Florida Charme. We found everything as shown on the pictures and we loved to relax in the backyard by the huge pool. It was very clean and we felt at home (all ceiling fans were working). Heidi the manager was perfect. We had some bulbs to exchange, it happened within a day. For our need the mattresses were comfortable and all mattresses were covered with a clean topper. We loved to use the beach toys in the garage especially the beach cart and cooler. For us the perfect place by a very good rental price comparing with other homes on this island.
Clean, Sun, and lots of fun! by Kelly110 12/23/2016
This house is terrific. Excellent location and amenities. The house is right in the middle of everything. Easy walk to the beach. Everything you could possibly need in a vacation home. The home is extremely clean. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Perfect location on Anna-Maria Island by Corinna & Peter 08/07/2016
Me, my wife and my 3 teenage kids stayed in this beautiful house for our one week vacation on Anna-Maria Island.
We spent lots of vacation weeks on Anna-Maria over the last many years, always loved it a lot. This house and location just makes the best out of it all - really close to the beaches, tennis courts, as well as the nice shops and restaurants of Holmes Beach and Anna-Maria. Renting a boat is another great option, the way out of the canals to the bay is very short form this location. And nothing beats the screened pool after a sunny day at the beach or Egmont Key.
The house itself is very nicely decorated, in perfect condition and super-clean.
Can only recommend this little paradise!
Wonderful vacation home by Christine 06/27/2016
This vacation was our best yet as a family. This home is absolutely wonderful. All the comforts and conveniences of our own home. We have 3 children and I am a clean freak. I usually spend the first day of any stay cleaning and sprucing. No need for that here. Exceptionally clean and meticulously cared for. Everything smelled and looked fresh and clean. Having the pool and the canal were fantastic additions. We all enjoyed the pool and my son enjoyed fishing in the canal. The bikes, beach accessories, shop vacuum were the icing on top. Location of the home is very convenient to the beach and a nice short bike ride. There is a small bridge down the street we rode bikes to and saw Dolphins-amazing! We rented extra bikes from Beach Bums- they will even deliver to this home. The beaches are the best we've seen, comparable to water in Cancun and Jamaica. Beautiful clear water, every one of us enjoyed the water- that's not typical for my picky crew! I'm usually ready to get back home after 7 days of vacation, but not this time, we were all sad to have to say goodbye to this place. We will be renting from you again!!! Thank you for sharing your wonderful home!
Beautiful setting by Katherina D. 06/02/2016
I stayed just with my fiancee. We all plenty of of space, the house is pretty and had been equipped to a high standard. The pool and dock were good for relaxing and the beach is a short walk or bike ride. Probably the best location in the Key Royale neighborhood (because it's so close to the beach). The home was clean. We found free bikes to take in the garage. There are lots of great restaurants nearby and take out places. We did cook one night for 2 befriended couples. There is a special Old Florida atmosphere on the island and you are only a short drive to the mainland if you want to go shopping. This is an excellent area to visit and we will be back! .
