Dog-friendly cottage w/ island views, shared pool & private patio - beach nearby

There is no better way to reset and recharge than walking along the warm sandy beach while listening to the tide ebb and flow. This coastal retreat is just the place to take a much-needed break from it all and let life's worries slip away for a bit. Set in a quiet neighborhood mere minutes from the sand, guests will fall in love with the bright ambiance and island decor that sets this home apart! Spend quiet mornings on the patio with a cup of warm coffee as you take a deep breath of salty air. You can even bring the dog along, as it will love evening walks on the sand too! Take a break from the beach and cool off in the shared pool to escape the heat and head back to home base to prepare a delicious meal in the full kitchen or out on the private gas grill! Plus, there is no need to worry about sandy suits, as a washer and dryer are available in the home for your convenience!

What's nearby:
This Holmes Beach hideaway is two blocks from the general waters of the Gulf of Mexico where you can simply lounge on the sand, walk along the coast, or snorkel along the local reefs! A free trolley stop is also nearby, so hop on and explore the entirety of the island with ease. If you don't feel like cooking, there are plenty of delicious local restaurants serving up unforgettable seafood and barbeque that you won't want to miss. Plus, Bradenton is a short drive inland if you want to explore the city!

We love this property and staying so close to the beach. Our cottage has everything we need, is clean and within a 40 second walk to the beach. We have stayed here before and will continue to stay here.

We stayed last year in Unit #2 and loved the location and the property so this year when unit #3 came available, jumped on it. We loved the layout and decor. The unit has everything you need. I even used the grill one night. There was an issue with the laundry door but a call to Vacasa and all was fixed the next day. The only real issue we had was the extremely hard beds. It was so bad my wife had to sleep on the couch. It takes a lot for us to complain about things so the bed was a big deal. We would definitely go back if they would change the mattess.

Pefect for a beach cottage..a three minute walk to the beach. On a quiet street in close proximity to the free trolley and grocery store. The cottage was very clean and well-stocked. Love the no-hassle check-in process - didn't have to run around trying to find keys to enter...code sent directly to your phone.
