Island House - Funboard | Holmes Beach Vacation Rental



Location, location, location, this cozy quaint beach house is centrally located on Anna Maria Island and is less than a 2 minute walk from Holmes Beach. The 2 bedroom and 1 bathroom unit is not only a very short walking distance to the beach, but is also a short walking distance to shopping and restaurants. The property was recently updated and new furniture including mattresses and linens were placed in the unit. When you are not at the beach, relax on the large comfortable sectional sofa or enjoy a home cooked meal from the full kitchen with breakfast bar.

Every Island attraction is right at your fingertips during your stay here. Whether you want to sink your toes in the soft white sands on the beach, or pause to watch the sunset over the tranquilly Gulf of Mexico Ocean, you’ll only have to walk a short distance. Come and experience for yourself why Anna Maria Island is considered Florida's hidden gem!

The free Island Trolley is ready to take you to the north end of the island to visit the village of Anna Maria, where two historic piers offer opportunities for fishing and dinning. Shops restaurants, galleries, and even a museum and community theater can also be found on the north end of the island.

Holmes Beach, you can get off the Trolley to enjoy more excellent shops and restaurants, as well as a marina, library, free community tennis courts, and several gyms open to visitors.

You will also want to explore the rest of Bradenton Beach. Historic Bridge Street was once the location of the very first bridge to the mainland. Today's Cortez Bridge, just a bit to the north, is made out of sturdier stuff than the original wood structure, but the original street is still there, and it is a fun place for shopping, dining, live music, a weekly open-air market (in season), fishing, and even miniature golf!

Great location you don't have to cross any busy roads to get to the beach, lots of parking. This place is noisy if people are in the upstairs. No sound insulation between the floors. Sounded as if we were in the basement of a bowling alley. The price was good and it allowed us to find a better place for next year, with the same property management.
Good room for the price

All in all it was a good place. We stayed in the lower unit and there was a lot of noise from the unit above us. You could hear people walking and talking in normal voices. But for the price and distance to the beach I was very happy. It was clean and well equipped.

The property was nice, but the parking was difficult. Most did not read the directions and we would be blocked in and have to wait or find someone to move their vehicle. That is not the owners fault, but maybe lining parking spaces might help. Secondly, it was quite warm with a 2 bedroom and not being able to shut the doors because of having a wall unit. The directions told us not to go go below 73, but with fans it still made nights a little warm....but me made it. :)

That morning we were telephoned the roof collapsed in our rental & thank goodness he put us up in another, only downfall, was the new rental did not have 2 bathrooms, only 1. The location was perfect, backyard set up great, toilet did run every 10 min all day/night, not sure why?? But everything else was perfect!

We had a great stay. Came down for a long weekend. The rental is a short walk to the beach and stores. Only bad thing to say is about the idiots staying in the apartment above us. Apparently stomping around and listening to music at 4am was part of their vacation plans. We would definitely stay there again (and hope those jerks are not above us again)

My Children and I stayed 10 days. The place had everything we needed. A home away from home. The beach was just couple small blocks away. I will be looking to stay again in the future.

Location of the cottage was great, the place looked updated. I liked everything but my wife didn't like that there was no bathtub. Other than that is was a perfect stay.
A happy time at the Funboard

We as a family were looking for a place to stay during our last minute getaway to Anna Maria Is. Adam, manager of the property, was very helpful accommodating our wish to check in the same day (on Sunday!), made sure that the property was clean and ready for us to move in.
The apartment was comfortable, with a beach-vacation-appropriate decor. Our 4 y.o. son nicknamed the place The Sandhouse. The kitchen was well equipped with all basic appliances, dishes, utensils, plus. We found an ample supply of towels, bed linens, even beach chairs, umbrellas and toys! The laundry appliances worked great. The additional outdoor shower and hose were helpful in keeping the beach sand outside. Oh, did I mentioned that one of the most beautiful beaches in North America was just a short walk away! The grocery store and some other stores were close by. And, of course, one could easily get around the island on the trolley.
We sure enjoyed our stay and can't wait to come back!

We enjoyed our stay in Holmes Beach. The propertyis a 2 minute walk to the beach.Plenty of towels, bedding and cookware. It was very comfortable. We were in a downstairs unit, and could hear all the noise from be was a family with 4 children,and only for 1 week. I would certainly stay there again!

The property was very convenient to the wedding festivities and anything else we wanted to do on our extended stay. Only suggestion is to add a mirror in the bedroom to help in getting ready when someone else is needing bathroom. Otherwise very satisfied and we plan to stay again on our next visit.

Our vacation rental was very clean and cozy. We arrived just days after Hurricane Hermine had went through when we came in there was a tad bit of water on the back bedroom floor which wasnt a big deal. we lifted up the rug and put a fan pointed toward it and it dried right up. We didn't have any other issues and it was a great place with great location!

Overall, very pleased with the rental. It was a bargain for the rooms and the location. Plenty of kitchenware, living room space, etc. Parking is a little tight, and mosquitoes are permanent residents outside the backdoor, but that's almost expected in Florida summers. There's only one a/c unit in the living room, though it works well enough when paired with the fan in the bedroom. But as I said, fantastic stay and we experienced only very minor issues. Easy walk to the beach, grills available for cooking outside and plenty of extra beach gear if needed.

Thanks for staying and the review. The property is located in a great location. Not sure how everyone was parking, maybe not in their designated spots as parking for three cars for the three units should be more than enough. If there should be any issues parking because of other guests not following the directions, just let us know and we will contact them to correct the issue.
Amazing Family Vacation!!!

It was an outstanding experience which surpassed our expectations. The condo was spacious with clean & up to date appliances. The beds were very comfortable with clean linens. It is with in one block to the beach that is un-crowded. The condo has chairs & tents for tenants to use. All in all if me & my family come back to this area this is where we will stay.

The property has access to a semi-priavte part of the beach a few hundred feet away from the main part of Holmes Beach. It does not get very crowded at all, even in season! You also do not have to worry about finding a parking spot. Thank you for staying and glad you enjoyed your stay.
