Also in Bradenton is the De Soto National Memorial Park, where the ruthless Spanish conquistador, Hernando de Soto, first landed in this area. Bradenton, like Sarasota, has several theater companies and first-rate cineplexes for drama and movie lovers.

Reviews for this vacation condo rental in Holmes Beach, Florida
Feel completely at home
November 17, 2011
The moment we entered, this place welcomed us as a home. It has everything one could want, from the King-sized bed, walk-in closet and adjustable lighting in the private master suite, iron and ironing board, two full bathrooms, central air, washer/dryer, cable, wi-fi, and the lanai, from which we watched dozens of eagles soar over the treetops of the neighboring wildlife preserve. Location, location, location! Secluded near the preserve with private parking and a nice pool, yet right across the street from the supermarket, two surf shops, three nice restaurants, two drug stores, and a health food store! The bicycles are great for getting around the small island, but the FREE trolley service gets you everywhere else you need to go. Every day, we went to a choice of beaches, restaurants, bars of every description, and heard live music, all without a car! The place was clean as could be, and we felt safe and secure. We'll be back... if we don't move down there, anyway!
A beautiful condo on Anna Maria Island!!!!
October 12, 2011
We loved the condo, it is comfortable, clean and a short walk to the beach and the shops. We walked along the nice beach, visited the near Robinson Preserve and relaxed at the pool. In the morning, we watched the birds at the mangroves from the lanai. The best place for perfect holidays!

Great Place to Stay!!!
August 19, 2011
I highly recomend Rental 48177. My family and I spent a wonderful week there. It is central to everything you can either take the free bus service or drive. Everything is close by and the people are wonderful. The condo had everything that you needed. The beds were great and the place was extremely clean. My girls and husband enjoyed riding bikes around the Island and to the beach. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms are great. The island has many activities and the locals are extremely friendly and helpful. There are many places to eat and we had one of the best pizza's I ever had right across the street from the condo. I really recommend this place we had a wonderful time and we hope you do too!!!!!!

A week is not enough!
August 18, 2011
My husband, kids and I had a fantastic getaway to Holmes Beach! I wanted a relaxing week away from home. My kids are 13 and 16 and it's often hard to find a place that everyone likes. We fished, biked, ate, shopped, enjoyed the beautiful beach and relaxed at the condo. This condo is a great bargain! It is comfortable, clean, nicely decorated with just a short walk to the beach. My only complaint is that our week went by too fast. Thank you!
July 21, 2011
Excellent home away from home! Everything in and about the unit was as advertised. The beds were very comfortable. We couldn't have asked for any more kitchen items than were stocked by the owner. The location was great, not to mention extremely quiet. We had the pool to ourselves most of the time. The walk to the beach was a short and pleasant stroll. Our unit was spotless and fresh when we arrived. The bikes and helmets looked brand new. All of the beach wares were adequate. All in all, we give this rental five out of five stars.

The Condo Made Our Stay Special
April 5, 2011
We have just left our month on Annamarie island and want to comment on our stay in Mark and Lilian's unit. We had a wondeful stay and could not have been happier with the unit. We found the unit very clean and completely furnished with everything we could possibly use. This was a rare occurance for us as in our past visits to Anna Marie Is. the places we stayed seemed to be missing some essential. We settled in very quickly and felt at home. Thank you, Mark, for being available for any questions that arose.

LOVED IT !!!
January 4, 2011
We recently sold our vacation home in the Anna Maria area and were worried about how we would feel staying somewhere that was not "ours" The condo was terrific and really felt like home -- without the yardwork!! Every ammenity has been thought out so you really only need your clothes and a few groceries to feel at home. It was so relaxing to sit on the lanai and look out over the mangroves. The southern exposure was great for sunrise or sunset. We look forward to returning again & again.
Our New Favorite Place!
December 7, 2010
We have always loved Anna Maria Island...and stayed at little beach places for the past few years so we were a little reluctant to try a condo rental. There was really no down side here..the place is clean and well appointed. There was nothing we were lacking. The short distance to the beach was not an issue and the screened patio would be a wonderful feature especially during "insect season". Loved it..Thanks!
Home Away From Home
July 27, 2010
The condo is just as Mark describes on the website. He is a super person to work with and our family enjoyed staying in his home. All the things you would need are supplied. All you need are your clothes. The island is beautiful. I recomemend Mark's home and will be visiting again.

Our new favorite vacation spot!
July 12, 2010
The only thing better than discovering a new place to vacation was working with Mark and Lily! The owners are as fantastic as their rental. We enjoyed sitting on the lanai and watching the sunset over the bay, biking around the property and stopping at the pier to watch the fish jump, and the convenience of being able to walk to the beach, the grocery store, and the trolly stop. We have never seen such crystal clear water on such white sandy beach. The beach chairs and umbrella made for relaxing days on the sand during the day, and the island trolly made it easy to get to multiple restaurants all over the island. We are excited to see that these owners have other properties as well. Next time we'll bring friends! This is, by far, our new favorite place to vacation, and we look forward to working with Mark and Lily again soon!
Recomended Vacation Spot!
July 12, 2010
Highly recommended location for a visit. Tucked back in a quiet corner of Anna Maria within easy walking access to beaches, grocery and restaurants. Also the main thoroughfares off the island are close by. The pool is great, the condo is very clean and décor attractive. The bedrooms and layout are convenient and the fabulous view of the ocean bayou calms you. The beds are very comfortable. I’ve been around a lot of beaches, and this is one of the best. Best of all, the owner is easy to work with. We stayed as a family of 6. Do yourself a favor and grab this place!

A beautiful place to visit!
July 2, 2010
We could not have hoped for a better place to stay! The condo is beautiful and provides everthing you need to enjoy your stay. The short walk to the beach is made even easier by using the bikes. We also took the rolling cooler with refreshments each day. No car rental is necessary, since the grocery store is so close. We utilized the free Anna Maria shuttle to go anywhere that was too far to walk. I would highly recommend this condo to everyone! Kara Lee's Summit, MO
Owner Supplied Testimonials
Condo is clean, nice, and is even bigger than expected.
Pool is steps away, beach and Cafe on the Beach is just down the street (short walking distance). Also convenient to restaurants, mall, and outlets. We loved views and the quiet peaceful area! For the first time we did not have to rent a car or bikes. We saved $41/day not having to rent bikes. Between your bikes and trolley we went everywhere we wanted and saved over $200 on rental car. Thanks for a great time. We will definitely be back!

We had a wonderful week at the beach. We have rented other units at this complex but this was the best and was very well up to date. Had everything we needed even better than home. It was nice being on the top floor you could see the Bay and for a long way over the big Preserve. Now that we know what view we were missing we hope your unit is available for our next vacation. I would recommend this unit to anyone.
