Dog-friendly family house w/ private pool, lanai & an easy walk to the beach!

Located just one block from the coast in the Holmes Beach section of Anna Maria Island, lazing on the beach and bronzing your skin are as easy as strolling down the street. Don't forget your beach towel and sunscreen! The driveway accommodates two cars, but a free trolley will also take you to any of the restaurants, cafés, and shops on the island - so you can forget the car keys once you arrive!

Spend your mornings in the caged lanai, where you can admire the lush tropical landscape and maybe go for a dip in the private pool to wake up. Home-cooked meals are easy to whip up in the fully equipped kitchen, which is equipped with everything you're used to. If you get a hold of some fresh fish, grill it up on the gas BBQ in the courtyard! Free WiFi and a flatscreen TV in the living room and each bedroom help make your stay as comfortable as possible. You can even take care of laundry with a private washer/dryer. Dogs weighing up to 35 pounds are welcome with an additional nightly pet fee.

The house was great and the pool was awesome, but bedroom with the queen bed was very small and so was the adjoining bathroom. But we still had everything we needed.

Almost Heaven is a small but pleasant house, with a nice galley kitchen and large dining area for such a small house, a functional working/office area, and nice covered outdoor seating area. The master bedroom was roomy, the 2 other bedrooms tight but functional. The 2 bathrooms were small but quite workable, and the common living area had seating for 6. The kitchen was adequate but a little bare if you plan to cook often. There were games, books, and DirectTV with HBO and internet for rainy days.

It is an easy walk to the beach just across the street, but the beach is not as wide here as a few blocks north. The newly remodeled pool area is terrific, and the heated spa was nice on a chilly evening. The pictures of the home are out of date on this, there is no longer a screened/covered pool area. It is new and very nice with new pool furniture. They have landscaped well to help with privacy from 2 story homes on either side.

There is no storage or garage, so expect very little in terms of beach equipment. Renting them locally is easy if you need things.

Overall, a nice place to stay for a small family or group. The home and furnishings are in very good condition and well maintained.

Loved this place. Family of 5 adults, had plenty of space to be together and have our own individual time. The house had everything we needed from kitchen appliances, grill, and things to do on a rainy day. Honestly my favorite piece was the large dinner table. We were all able to sit together for our family dinners, including one extra guest. We adored the pool and spa, really relaxing evenings after a long strenuous day at the beach. ;-) Would love to rent this place again in the future!

We had a super vacation on AMI! Almost Heaven was a great place to stay. It is such a short walk to the beach, is very well equipped overall, and has a fantastic pool and lanai area. Our family had a blast!

"This house was awesome, especially the tent for the beach and the carts with wheels. In general everything was great. Love the keyless entry! Loved the screen on the pool!"

We LOVED this house! The beds were comfy, a perfect location to stroll easily to the beach, great kitchen with everything you would ever need, comfy welcoming living room, spacious dining room and out door dining, the pool was AMAZING, and tons of beach supplies... umbrellas, chairs, toys even a beach cart! Couldn't ask for more, we will definitely stay here again! Great for families!!!!

Hi. I wanted to let the owners of Almost Heaven (205 72nd St.) as well as you, know how much we enjoyed our stay at this particular rental property. Everything, from the comfortable beds, the wonderful kitchen, the welcoming and comfortable living room, to the pool was absolutely the best. We have rented a number of other properties on Anna Maria Island but nothing compares to this rental. Our granddaughter learned to swim in the pool which was one of the highlights of our vacation!
