Perfect Location, Just off the Beach - Great Rooftop Deck for Sunset Views!

Vacation home in Holmes Beach with water park
Welcome to Beach View Retreat! This beautiful vacation home is located on a quiet peaceful side street - less than a 5-minute walk to the soft white sugary sands on one of Anna Maria Island’s top beaches, Manatee Public Beach! Once you arrive you will never need to drive anywhere: walk across the street to the beach, to our local favorite Skinny’s Place for burgers, shops, and the Publix grocery store. And if you choose to venture further on the Island you can easily hop on the free trolley at the nearby stop!

You’re going to LOVE staying in this custom-built home. The rooftop sunset views over the Gulf of Mexico are absolutely breathtaking, so kick back with your friends and enjoy the tropical breeze with a nice beer or glass of wine. From the home’s rooftop deck you also have fantastic views of the bay to the east and even the Sunshine Skyway to the north! Beach View Retreat has new décor throughout and features 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, and a very secluded and lushly landscaped backyard with a private pool and spa. Blossoming orange trees inside the fence even lend a sweet hint of fragrance to the air. There are also balconies off the living room and another off the upstairs master bedroom.

The main floor features two bedrooms and two bathrooms, and the upper floor features 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, one of which is the King master bedroom with ensuite bathroom with walk-in shower and soaking tub. This spacious and open bedroom also has a balcony with a small table and chairs for your cozy morning coffee with a view, as well as the access to the rooftop deck.

5/5 Excellent

Nice property with excellent property managers
The house and property were clean upon arrival. After only one day the refrigerator died. We placed a call and maintenance staff was there immediately. Unfortunately it took 4 more days to have a working fridge, but they did bring one for the garage. It wasn't convenient, but they did make it right for us. One major gripe is that there are NO dressers in the bedrooms. Four adult couples had to live out of suitcases for a week, which is unacceptable. A simple solution would be to put an inexpensive dresser in each closet (which had no hangers either). Kitchen could use some rectangular pans, a mixer, measuring spoons, mixing bowls, etc. A quick trip to ikea would take care of these things that make it a comfortable stay for adults. All in all, nice home.

Family get away at beach
Home was all that I could ask for. Comfortably housed 10 adults. Great location for beach and constant trips to grocery store.

5/5 Excellent

Great family Vacation
Just perfect! Exactly what we were looking for to spend a week together. It was like our home away from home, plenty of room for us all to relax and visit. All the bedrooms were a good size with comfortable beds and bathrooms attached or close by. A pool and hot tub provided plenty of entertainment. We loved having the grill, most restaurants were busy and it was hard for them to accommodate 10 people during a busy dinner shift. Publix was right around the corner, very convenient. A short work across the road to the beach was the best part, location was spot on for dining, shopping and riding bikes. We had to much fun on the roof, what a beautiful view from up there. Thank you for a memorable week, it was awesome 😎

5/5 Excellent

We stayed for a week as a family of 10. The house has a great layout and wonderful backyard entertaining area. The location is perfect to spend your days between the beach and house!

5/5 Excellent

Very Nice!
We were very happy with the home and the AMI team. Good location, lots of room in the house. Nice outdoor pool area. We had a few small issues with the pool operation, but AMI addressed it immediately. Would definitely stay again at this property or with AMI. Holmes Beach is a nice area. Great beach (just one block away) and easy access to shopping. One tip for those arriving on Saturdays (when there’s a large influx of people onto the island) - head to the Publix 7 min inland (across the bridge on Manatee) to avoid the crowds.
