12 days at Holmes Beach
By Anonymous on 31-May-2019
The apartment was spotless when we arrived, well equipped and very comfortable. Having a code rather than a key was really convenient. The location is ideal, with the beach, bus stop and supermarket all on the doorstep. Incredibly comfy beds and lovely balconies to have breakfast or dinner on. The pool is really well kept and we loved seeing the local wildlife in the surroundings. Would definitely recommend and return, thanks for a relaxing, peaceful stay!

Hard to put in to words how much we love this place! A beautiful apartment nestled in the mangroves and surrounded by everything you could possibly need for a relaxing holiday. Anna Maria Island is much less developed than the neighbouring keys and offers something for everyone - fishing with a beer on Rod and Reel Pier, barbecuing on the beach as the sun goes down, grabbing a burger at Skinny’s or enjoying a Sunday jazz brunch down at the Sandbar. If all that is too much then the amazingly white sandy beach is just across the road. Thanks to Susie everything that we could think of was provided so all we had to concentrate on was our tans
'a little piece of paradise'
By Nick Vaid on 31-Oct-2018
We recently enjoyed a holiday at Susie and Gary' lovely house at Sandy Pointe. The house itself is bright and spacious and well equipped with everything you possibly need for a relaxing stay. There is also a communal pool if you don't feel like going to the beach. The balconies provide a perfect vantage point to watch the sun rise across the tops of the mangroves. The beach is just a few minutes walk from the house - and are a good range of shops , including a supermarket. The beach bars and cafes have a great choice of cocktails and food - very often accompanied by live musicians. The free trolley service is a fantastic way of getting round the island. We used it to get it to various beaches and restaurants and to spend an evening at the theatre - well worth a visit. Check out the Waterfront restaurant which serves amazing seafood and weapons-grade gin and tonics - Definitely not for the faint-hearted! Travelling a little bit further afield, the Amish village restaurant and deli was a joy. The nature reserves in this area are spectacular and not too far away. All in all, a holiday here has something for everyone; beaches, restaurants, nature reserves and historical sites all easily accessible from the house. We would certainly recommend this lovely house for a perfect holiday.
Fabulous property located in an idylic setting
By Brendan C on 29-Aug-2018
this is our 2nd stay at the property which we thoroughly enjoyed. the property is beautifully presented with every amenity available. we loved the addition of the table tennis since our last visit. Everything is within walking distance, beautiful beaches, bars and a great choice of restaurants. Looking forward to 2019 visit, we cannot get back soon enough!
Cozy, clean and close to everything!
By Kassy F on 09-Jul-2018
We had a very comfortable stay. The condo's layout and amenities allowed both space and activity choices for three adults and three kids, ages 8-16. The pool is steps away, the beach and shops to meet every need are just a few minutes' walk. The condo is clean, bright and cheery. Thanks for sharing your home away from home with us.

Sandy Point Cove 114. House was just perfect for our family ( 4 adults and one child) we enjoyed our stay very much. It was very clean , well maintained and nicely furnished.

We gladly recommend this house! Family from Finland.
A comfortable and well located property
By J. Harper on 09-Jan-2018
We had a wonderful holiday. The house was light and airy in a quiet spot with fabulous views. My favourite time was often early morning, seeing the sun rise from the balcony overlooking the mangroves, followed by a swim in the pool. Great local shops especially for food. The beaches were quiet and unspoilt and we enjoyed visiting local bars and fabulous restaurants. My husband loved fishing from the wooden pier with the locals and I was thrilled to see an abundance of wild life such as manatees and pelicans. We would definitely come back.
Beautiful holiday home in a stunning location
By Nicola M on 10-Jun-2017
Dear Susan and Gary, We have had a fabulous time at your holiday home. The property had everything we needed, is very clean and in an ideal location. We hired some bikes and loved exploring this wonderful island. There is an abundance of wildlife to see including wild dolphins, manatees and turtles. Lovely beach nearby with a great bar/ restaurant. A short bike ride, walk or trolley bus ride give access to many more stunning beaches and restaurants. We look forward to returning in the not too distant future. The McCulloch family x
Wedding and vacation
By Allison S on 15-May-2017
We recently enjoyed a trip to Anna Maria Island for my daughter's wedding and were lucky enough to rent your property. It was relaxing and comfortable and located in the most convenient place. We had some family staying close to Beane Point and others in Bradenton Beach and we were close to everything, any the trolley was wonderful. My grandson loved it- he even name it Charley Trolley. I just wanted to let you know that your home was our home in every sense of the word , thank you for sharing !
A lovely relaxing holiday
By Anonymous on 02-May-2017
White sand, clear blue sea and skies alongside good food. Everything we wanted! The house is near to the beach and useful amenities such as a large supermarket and shops. We particularly enjoyed a trip to the very near by 'Skinny's' restaurant/ bar! The house itself is clean, comfortable and very roomy with a lovely shared pool. The trolley bus makes getting around a breeze alongside the well written guidebook which was left in the house for us. We all had a lovely time!
Hidden gem by the beach
By on 26-Feb-2017
Great location 5 mins walk from a beautiful beach and local amenities. Free trolley bus makes exploring the island easy. the property is clean and modern and well maintained throughout which made our stay extremely comfortable. The pool and the views of the nature reserve were an added bonus. Anna Maria island community with its quirky shops and eclectic mix of bars and restaurants has a bohemian feel which sets it apart from the rest of Florida. A must see place to visit.
Sundowner capital of Sarasota
By Laurence A on 21-Feb-2017
Perfect location for a relaxing holiday. Walk across the road to the beach or take the free trolley bus up and down the island. If you like good food, amazing beaches and sunset pictures to bore your friends with then this is the place for you! Beautiful apartment that makes you feel at home as soon as you walk in- make sure you have at least one sundowner on the balcony as the sun sets over the mangroves before you leave!
Wonderful Anna Maria
By Joanna on 17-Nov-2016
We had a wonderful holiday in this lovely place. The house was really comfortable, clean and well maintained and exceeded our expectations. I loved sitting on the various balconies watching the sun rise or watching the wild birds fly over the mangroves. The owners were really helpful and gave us plenty of information about where to eat or shop. There was a real choice of lively or quieter bars and restaurants, a free bus around the island and good shops nearby if you wanted to eat in. Beaches were all beautiful too. I would thoroughly recommend this property for couples or families.
Cant wait to return
By Angela R on 25-Jun-2016
This lovely property far exceeded my expectations. I was quite impressed by how spacious the condo was and the floor plan worked wonderfully for my family. Beautifully decorated and had all of the conveniences we needed. Loved the outdoor patio and balconies . We saw many species of birds from there. The AC kept the condo very comfortable. I loved the master ensuite, gorgeous sunrise views each morning. The garage was a bit tricky to manoeuvre my oversize SUV, but my son in law managed. There are parking spots available by the pool although they prefer you to park in the garage. Susan , the owner was in touch and very accessible throughout the booking process and followed up right before our stay. The management company they used delivered exceptional service. The trolley stop is located by entrance to condo, which we took full advantage of every night. There are so many breath taking beaches here we visited a different one every day. Again, I can't wait to return.
