Welcome to Beach Please B! This beautifully maintained island property is located less than 100 steps from the amazing white sand beaches and turquoise waters of Anna Maria Island. Occupying the second floor of a duplex, this spacious 1700 square foot unit has plenty of room for everyone to find their own quiet place, but also larger areas to gather together and play games, watch TV or cook together. Lush landscaping sets this house apart and the inviting beach décor will lower your stress level and ease you into vacation mode.
The home has an air-conditioned screened lanai as well as large decks in the front and back. The back deck overlooks the shared pool and features a table with umbrella and seating for six. There are also many Adirondack chairs for relaxing and comfortable loungers by the pool. In the garage you will find the laundry area as well as beach carts, umbrellas, and chairs. There are usually lots of beach and pool toys that guests have left behind for your enjoyment as well. The white sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico are just a few steps away so grab the beach cart, chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, and pop-up shade canopy and start your vacation! After a day on the beach you can return to the tranquil setting of the backyard and sip a cool drink while floating in the heated pool or take a nap while listening to your favorite music. There is also the convenience of an outdoor shower for rinsing away the sand.
Cook a gourmet meal in the fully appointed kitchen with your family and friends gathered around the breakfast bar, or head out to the rear deck for a barbecue. Not in the mood to cook? Walk or drive to one of the many great restaurants on the island. You can also hop on the free island trolley, which stops right across the street, to explore the local shopping on Pine avenue or Bridge street. Later in the evening be sure not to miss the spectacular sunsets. You can watch the nightly sunset pilgrimage while relaxing in the lanai as the curtains ripple in the evening breeze. It's truly paradise.
For your comfort and convenience a luxury linen program is included with your rental. Enjoy fresh, hotel quality sheets and bedding in the guest rooms and well as plush white bath towels. Kitchen towels and beach towels will also be provided as part of this service.
Please contact me if your dates are not available. We also offer the ground floor unit which features a large master bedroom with ensuite bath and twin guestroom. If you need more space for a large group of family and friends the entire house can be rented for the ultimate four bedroom four bath private villa! Booking is easy - just ask!
My husband Cory and I have been visiting Anna Maria Island ever since we first discovered it in 2009. We knew instantly that we had found Heaven on Earth and hatched a plan to retire here someday. We recently took the first step and purchased this house in Holmes Beach. While we're not quite ready to retire yet, we'd love to share our getaway with you. We hope you love Anna Maria Island as much as we do and we're happy to share any insights and tips with you. Don't hesitate to reach out to us if you have any inquiries about this 7 miles of paradise!

Everything was great, the condo was very clean and had everything we could possibly need. It was actually bigger than it looked in the pictures. Loved our stay here and definitely will come back !
Stayed September, 2018
The top level of the duplex was nice and pretty well maintained. The glass in the sliding glass door was a little sketchy like it could fall out at any moment, but it didn't so we were all good. It appeared and smelled clean and was in a great location. The check-in process was a bit of a cluster. Our friends, who were staying in the lower level of the duplex got different check-in instructions than we did. It turned out ours were wrong, so it was a good thing we were all together or we'd have been running all over town trying to find our keys. There were no check-out instructions, so we just packed our stuff and left. On a side note: we were unaware that there was no alcohol allowed on the beach. We're not raging alcoholics or anything but enjoy a drink on the beach in the evening while enjoying the sunset. I'm sure some idiots have ruined it for the rest of us...

This property will always have a special place in my heart. We have stayed here with our family on three different occasions and each time our vacation has come to an end, we haven't wanted to leave. The house is perfectly located, just steps to the beach so that coming and going is so easy, even with a cart full of beach toys. Inside the home is spacious and bright, and it feels beachy, comfortable and inviting. The master bedroom is lovely and the second bedroom is so large that our little ones were all able to bunk together very comfortably. After the kids are in bed, the front deck is the perfect spot to take in the last moments of sunset and enjoy a glass of wine. While the pool is not huge, we found the size just right and it was thoroughly enjoyed by our entire family. We have stayed in other homes on Holmes Beach as well, and this one is still a favourite. When you visit, you will see a sign hanging on the wall in the master bedroom that says 'life doesn't get much better than this'. Believe it, because it is absolutely true. We look forward to returning to this beautiful home with everything you need for a perfect family vacation!

Large spacious 2nd floor duplex. Immaculate, awesome porch and front deck. Walk to the beach was short and sweet. It was great to have the trolley stop across the street. We will come back!

My daughter and I stayed there over the Thanksgiving weekend. It couldn't have been more perfect. Quick response from the owner and easy check-in with Island Realty. The location is ideal - right across the street, which isn't busy, from beach access and beach trolley stop, and it within walking distance from some nice restaurants as well. The apartment itself is nicely appointed. There are two large porches front and back. You have to really crane your neck to see the Gulf, but the street isn't busy, so it's just lovely sitting out front with the breezes and palm trees. The back has a nice table and grill that overlooks the pool which is shared with the apartment below. The glassed in porch in the front of the house is a pleasant place to sit when the weather isn't perfect. Or you could open the windows and it is basically a screened in porch. I think there were screens..... Kitchen well stocked. I am going to write about a couple issues that will seem like are major complaints, but they are mostly for their FYI. I would most definitely stay here again and recommend the rental to anyone planning on staying on AMI. That said we had an issue with the front door lock - it was really (as in REALLY) hard to get the key to open it. Island Realty sent someone over, but all they did was throw a bit of graphite or WD-40 on it which didn't solve the issue. I'm sure maintenance knew that, so that was annoying. They just need to change out the lock. Can't be that expensive. The only other thing was they asked you to not use the white towels to take off your make-up. Seriously? There were only white towels. Did they think no woman was going to rent the place and no one need to remove their make-up? They did supply a couple make-up remover pads, but not enough for our stay. OK - how much do towels cost at TJMaxx? They couldn't have some darker ones so they wouldn't seem so picky? Just small things. Really loved our stay overall.

We just returned from our sweet vacation on Anna Maria Island. Our stay was highlighted with a perfect choice in this vacation rental. The upstairs unit was extremely roomy for our family of four. The front and back porches, along with the sunroom, added so much extra room for us to all have plenty of space. It's nicely updated and had everything we needed at our fingertips. Best of all is the location, we loved being only a few steps to the beach. Our teen daughters enjoyed riding bikes to the ice cream shop and stores just down the street. Of course, the pool was a great way to end each day! Great house, amazing location, perfect vacation!
Stayed October, 2017
We had a really good week. This house is in a great location. It really is 100 steps to sand! Right next to a free trolley stop. Easy to get to restaurants and retail. The house is comfortable and easy to live in. Loved the front porch. I would recommend this property
Stayed June, 2017
We stayed here for a week in May 2017 and we loved it! Very spacious two bedroom, two bath, with a good size kitchen - all nicely decorated. Loved that there were two decks - we could always find shade outside! The deck in the front overlooked the trolley stop and we could watch people walking to the beach. The deck in the back had a patio table and umbrella and overlooked the small pool. Then there was the lanai for some AC and sunlight. The beach really was just one block away. There were multiple wagons, umbrellas, pool noodles, beach chairs, and beach toys available for sharing between the upstairs and downstairs unit. I would go back in a heartbeat!
Stayed May, 2017
We stayed for 6 nights in late Sept 2016. Was the first time we were on the island during red tide so we were very thankful to be a block off the beach and have the pool for our kids to enjoy since the beach was pretty bad for a couple of days. By the end of our stay, the beach was better but we still spent a ton of time in the pool.
This unit has everything, from wine openers to mixing bowls to beach toys to air mattresses to nice little baskets to store toys or supplies during your trip. One of the best units we have ever rented on VRBO.
Stayed September, 2016
We first rented this beautiful home in 2013 on our first visit to AMI and it was absolutely perfect. Tastefully decorated, well maintained and truly 100 steps to the beautiful and relaxing beach (yes, I counted!). It truly felt like home. Renting the property was a wonderful experience and every time we visit we attempt to rent this home first. We visit AMI often and this is our absolute favorite place to stay. I am already counting down to our next visit this May. Part of me wants to keep this gem my little secret :-)
