Palms by the Bay

417 Bay Palms Drive

Holmes Beach, Fl 34217


Palms by the Bay is just as tropical as the name sounds-this lovely ground level 3 bedroom with a den and 3 bathrooms offers an oasis of a backyard that is sure to be the highlight of your tropical Anna Maria Island getaway.

Just picture yourself, lounging by the private heated pool with your favorite ice cold drink in hand. Grilling up a delicious home cooked meal enjoyed under the covered lanai with the game or your favorite movie on in the background on the outdoor flat screen TV-you would think it doesn't get any better than this? It does! The pure white sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico are just a brief 7 minute stroll away. Guests can also enjoy access to 4 bikes to use! Getting around the island has never been easier! At Palms by the Bay-you truly can have it all!

With a beautiful open floor plan, the living area and kitchen both look out onto the magnificent backyard. Curl up with your favorite book or enjoy a movie night with your loved ones relaxed on the couch. The stunning gourmet kitchen is adorned with beautiful granite countertops, custom cabinets and new stainless steel appliances for your convenience.

The spacious Master suite features sliding glass doors that leads out to the pool area and offers tropical views of the lush landscaping and Florida sunshine. This property participates in our Professional Linen Program. In Anna Maria Vacation's continuous effort to bring only the best quality experience to our guests, we are proud to offer a professional linen service at this property to better enhance your enjoyment while staying here. This luxury amenity provides you high quality linens that are in place and ready for your use upon your arrival. These high-quality linens are washed in a commercial setting using the latest and best technology.

Take the fuss and worry out of packing your private sheets and beach towels knowing that when you arrive to your dream vacation rental, in place are high quality and commercially cleaned luxury bedding, bath towels, wash cloths and beach towels ready for your stay. Eliminate the guessing game, free up luggage space and breathe easy knowing that everything is already taken care of for you. This same philosophy extends even to your departure- nothing to wash, dry, fold or having to fool with trying to squeeze into an already tightly packed suitcase! A fantastic "must have amenity" for your AMI vacation experience.

Close to local shops and restaurants, you are tucked away on a quiet residential street in the heart of Holmes Beach. Take advantage of the Island trolley, rent bicycles or explore AMI by foot-the possibilities are endless!

Bedrooms & Bathrooms


Palms by the Bay offers 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms with a den that features two sleeper sofas. The Master suite looks out onto the pool area and features sliding glass doors that lead out to the covered lanai--there is also a private en-suite bathroom offering a walk in shower.

All 3 bedrooms are equipped with Queen sized beds. There is a bathroom in between the two guest rooms that features a bath tub and the third full bathroom off of the den also offers a step-in shower.

Each bedroom offers a TV.


The fantastic backyard at Palms by the Bay is the highlight of this wonderful ground level vacation home. Enjoy the large private heated pool equiped with a sun shelve, ideal for little ones still learning how to swim! The spa is a wonderful feature and ideal for relaxing after an exhilirating day exploring the beautiful beaches of Anna Maria Island. Enjoy a night time swim and watch the pool turn different shades of color when you activate the lighting feature!

** If you would like to have your pool heated, we kindly ask that you please contact AMV at least 10 days prior to your arrival so that it ensures us ample time to fulfill your request. We do offer pool heat as needed as a courtesy to our guests at no additional charge. All of our pools and pool equipment are closely monitored by the pool company for your safety, we kindly ask that the controls not be tampered with- most of the systems are locked for this reason. Due to the island's strict 10pm noise ordinance, the pool heaters will not run overnight. Please remember, outdoor spas are not hot tubs (some properties have a spa, some have a hot tub). Generally speaking, our winter months are considered from November through April. During these months we do our best to ensure that the pools are heated to a temperature of 82 degrees. However, please be aware that even in Central Florida we do occasionally get cold spells that can send the temperatures down into the 30's for a few nights in a row. This will cause the pool water temperature to draw down to in the 70's and a pool pump will automatically shut down if the outside temperature gets too cold. The pump will then kick back on in the morning and begin re-heating of the pool back to 82, which may take several days depending on the severity of the cold spell. Ultimately, these situations are beyond our control. Other issues such as severe weather conditions, equipment malfunction, temporary loss of use of equipment or amenities due to maintenance purposes or other items do happen for time to time. Please be aware that AMV cannot issue refunds during your stay based on acts of God. However, please know that in the rare event of pool equipment malfunction during your stay, AMV will do everything in our power to expedite repairs as quickly as possible as we certainly want you to enjoy your heated pool and Florida sunshine to the fullest extent possible! Anna Maria Vacations thanks you in advance for your understanding on this issue.

Great Vacation Pool

By: Trip Date: 08/05/2017

What a great house! The pool was even better than the pictures. This house had a very home like atmosphere and had plenty of space for us and my older parents. This does have a laundry room too! Loved the front door and silverware, what cute surprises that really make this place special. The bathrooms were all nicely sized. We would stay here again.

​Hello Michele,
Thank you so much for letting us know about your stay at Palms By The Bay!  We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed all the amenities the home has to offer.  We would love to have you stay with us again! ​

Palms by the Bay was perfect!

By: Trip Date: 05/20/2017

We absolutely loved this rental home. It was well equipped, spacious, and beautiful….especially the landscaped pool. We loved having the den and garage (with a frig for drinks). We definitely plan to rent this home again. Thanks for making our week on Anna Maria so wonderful.

Total Relaxation

Vacation could not have been better. The Anna Marie Vacation home was just perfect. The staff did everything to make our visit as seamless and trouble free as possible. We will be back again to rent our next vacation home from them. I always read the reviews and not always believed them but I can say this property was perfect for us only wish it could have been longer. See you next year.
