Islandhouse - Shortboard | 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 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom studio 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. This beach house provides the perfect hidden gateway for a couple looking to spend the weekend or the week at the beach.

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!

What are you waiting for??? Book your perfect getaway vacation now!

MINIMUM STAY REQUIREMENTS: One week minimum reservation Saturday to Saturday required during peak season and summer months. 3 night minimum may be accepted when booking 30 days or less in advance.

My stay in my beach side studio was great. It had everything that I needed. I really appreciated the proximity to the beaches. I've stayed close by before and this apartment had really easy access to the beach. It was also close to Walgreens and the Grocery store.

Apartment is good for one person, it can be also suitable for two if you are going to sleep there only. Location is perfect: very close to the Holmes beach, shops, cafes, bus stop. Apartment is not new, but provides all necessary stuff. So if you need some place where you will just sleep - that’s for you , because price for location is very good. The minus is that the ac is very noisy. Sound carries in this studio, so if someone is talking on the terrace it will hard to fall asleep on the ground floor.

Kellercharakter - bitte keine hohen Erwartungen

Wohnung ist wie beschrieben und alles was man benötigt ist vorhanden. Aber man hat das Gefühl das man im Keller wohnt. Die Farbe blättert teilweise von den Wänden, Klimaanlage ist nur provisorisch eingebaut, die Tür ist nicht dicht - was dann jeden Abend zum Mückenproblem führt. Der Kühlschrank ist leider zu klein und zu schwach - kein Eis überlebt ihn. Das Bett ist zu alt und der Rücken beschwert sich.Überall wurde nur halbherzig gekittet und renoviert - " in der Suppe fehlt das Salz"
Fazit : Preis - Leistungsverhältnis stimmt - bis zu 1 Woche lässt es sich aushalten. Strandnähe perfekt
Clean, quirky studio apartment an easy walk to the beach

Newer kitchen which is very compact but adequate. Miniscule bathroom but the newer tiled shower is clean and spacious. Flushing the toilet can be a challenge because there is barely room to reach the lever between the toilet and the sink cabinet! Another odd thing: why would you need flatware service for 12 in a studio apartment for two??? Very comfortable bed. WiFi nearly non-existent, which I reported to Siesta Key but never heard back. On a busy road, but we were in unit C which is on the back. Very quiet there.I would recommend if you are on a tight budget and want something near the beach. There is a wonderful BBQ restaurant practically across the street.
Great studio by the beach

Given the fact that the recent Hurricane had touched this area 2 weeks prior to arrival it was in decent shape. This unit is on ground level and at the back of the building. No blinds on window, just sheer curtain. Owner should replace sheets due to a blood stain on the fitted sheet. The washer/dryer are a plus, as well as the new beach chairs available to use. Close to shops, restaurants and easy to get around with free trolley service on the islands.

I had a great time. the place was in a great location. It was very clean. Had everything I needed for my stay. The other thing was the mattress on the bed was a little to soft for me. Other then that, it was a great place.

We will definitely come back and stay here. Reasonable rate, privacy, and only two blocks from the beach. Location is everything and with flying from Pennsylvania so many conveniences. Your supplied with anything you may need for the beach, outside shower and if you have any questions you can submit an email and you're answered immediately. E-Z Check In with absolutely no problems.

We really enjoyed our stay in Shortboard. The studio is small but it was fine for the 2 of us. It was clean and we had everything we needed. There were beach chairs and umbrellas for guests use in the laundry room. We liked having the laundry room so close and we didn't have to pay for using it (just bring your own detergent). The property is very close to the beach, restaurants and Publix. We liked the outdoor shower, the many tables and chair sets and the grills. We used them all. Yes, we did hear the other guests but you will also hear other guests in hotels and other properties. It wasn't a problem for us. We liked that there is a fence that encloses the outside space which provided more privacy. Overall, it was a great stay and we will stay here again.
