I returned to this website, hoping to rent this home again this year, but it is already booked for our week. I can’t say enough good things about this home! We arrived to find it perfectly clean, sunny, and welcoming. The high ceilings and large windows kept us from feeling cramped by the neighboring houses, which are very close, but also in great condition. The kitchen was well-stocked and the pool, although small, was a fun way for my 13-year-old to pass the time while waiting for my husband to grill our dinner poolside. The pool water was a little chilly in October. It would have been nice to have it heated a few degrees. We used the elevator to move in, which was helpful since the master bedroom is on the top floor. We liked that it was separate from the other bedrooms, though, as it gave us an sense of added privacy. My two older daughters spent a great deal of time in the hammocks on the front porch, sleeping or reading (or texting). There was plenty of room for us to dine and relax together, but also space for us to spread out and enjoy solitude. The girls walked to a small surf and souvenir shop nearby. The home owners provide pool toys as well as beach chairs and a cart. It’s hard to imagine finding another home of this quality in this price range in Holmes Beach.
