Island House - Longboard | Holmes Beach Vacation Rental



Come and enjoy the beach life at this three bedroom beach cottage just 150 meters from the sandy shores of Holmes Beach. As you step through the front door you are greeted by the large open living area furnished with plenty of lounge seating and a 55" UHD TV. Moving towards the back of the property, you enter the open kitchen with breakfast bar equipped with 4-piece kitchen appliance set among other small appliances and general cooking supplies. Adjacent to the kitchen is a formal dining room with seating for 6 and opens out to the deck furnished with some patio furniture. Back inside there are three favorably sized bedrooms and a fully renovated bathroom with frameless glass shower enclosure.

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!

Bottom line: we loved this place.

The condo was clean and bright, and the kitchen had everything I needed to cook Thanksgiving dinner! (the BEST rental kitchen, pots and pans, and other amenities I've ever had.)

And the beds. Thank you for comfortable beds! One of the reasons we chose this condo was because in the pictures, the master bed looked comfortable. My husband has a very bad back and a few nights on a lumpy mattress kills him. This bed was nearly as comfy as ours at home. We slept so well.

It was a very short walk to the beach, so we were able to walk back and forth with ease, enjoying the sunsets in particular. We're SCUBA divers, and the best shore diving on the island is at the end of the street. That was lucky! We had fun dragging our gear out, and were pleased that there was plenty of space to rinse and dry it after.

As a final bonus, the shopping center a block away has the BEST cupcake shop. Yum. There is also an authentic German restaurant. We never had to get in the car if we didn't want to.

I highly recommend this rental.

It wasn't too bad, but I expect the apartment next to the beach. The ad described the property next to the beach. Also the beds are not comfortable for sleeping so the owner should replace them. Generally I am satisfied.
Nice place

This was our first visit to Holmes Beach. We liked the location and the easy access to the beach and a shopping center. The house fit our needs. It was clean and nicely furnished. It does need some work, a door screen was missing, a bedroom door handle is loose and hard to open, and few other things. We would rent here again.
Longboard good times

Fantastic location near Holmes beach- we were very comfortable in the apartment and had plenty of space for a busy toddler. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook at home and Publix was very close. Visit the ice cream shop nearby- Holy cow!

The location was perfect. The rental was very clean and organized and very spacious. everything worked such as appliances and were clean. We had everything we needed around that we needed supermarket and the Walgreens. We walked out the back to the beach which was beautiful beyond words can say. Everyone is so nice in Anna Maria island.
Great location. Even better place to stay.

We had our family vacation here at this wonderful cottage a d it was great! The apartment is beautiful and super clean. We found everything we needed. We even had our own private terrace with a large dining set and grill. A 2 minute walk to the beautiful beach. The whole rental process was easy and smooth. It was so nice we extended our stay !

My family of 7 stayed for 8 nights. This is an upsatairs unit. We were immediately a little disappointed to learn the home was part of a triplex. We thought we were renting a private home as the listing "island house" " beach cottage" suggested. However, location was great. Just few houses away from the beach access. Inside was decorated beautifully. Furniture was nice. Everything was very clean. I loved the artwork in the home. the home next door is not kept up very well so the view on our deck left a bit to be desired. We loved loved loved the island and will definitely visit again. The beach is not crowded and is kept very clean. The home is very well cared for and clean and we were overall happy with our stay. I just wish I'd done my homework a little better and realized this was a triplex. It is in the description of the property on HomeAway but I missed it. Didn't think I needed to double check since I'd filtered my search to privates homes and cottages only. We were always worried we would bother our neighbors with a large family of 7, it's difficult to keep quiet, especially with an upstairs unit, but it all worked out. Ana Maria shuts down early.... 9pm. So we had to be sure to have all our shopping and dining done by then.
Excellent stay!

This home was such a wonderful place for us to spend Thanksgiving. It was the perfect amount of space for the 6 of us, the kitchen was surprisingly stocked with all the essentials, and the separate dining room was fantastic! Being just steps away from the ocean was so lovely, we enjoyed the sunset on the beach each night! Thank you for a wonderful stay.
Very nice and cozy

This house was perfect for our short stay on Anna Maria Island. It was a great location, close to many amenities and within walking distance to the beach. The house is beautifully decorated inside and there are enough chairs for an army ?? I'd most definitely rent this house again!
Great Stay!

This was a nice clean and large home however we did have one issue with it. No where in the advertisement did it mention that this was a solely upstairs home, we stayed there with elderly family members that struggled to into and out of the home. We that was deceptive advertising.

Thank you for your stay at the Island House - Longboard. This 3 bedroom 1 bath property located minutes from the beach and shopping is a perfect location for those guests who enjoy taking advantage of the beautiful Florida weather. Our written advertisement does not state that the unit is upstairs however there is a video walk-thru and you are able to see the unit is exclusively upstairs. We also have customer service agents available 7 days a week from 9am - 5pm for any questions. Being that these guests were traveling with an elderly individual who had difficulties with stairs they could have called or emailed prior to booking to check and confirm if there were any stairs at the unit.
Clean and Comfy!

Just a few minutes walk from the beach no view - but great location on the island. Curb appeal is lacking, but once inside, great amenities-really cute and very clean!
