Lots of space (4 bdrms with optional 5th), great location close to beach, private heated pool with lush landscaping and a fabulous newly remodeled kitchen outfitted by a chef. There's also a 60-inch Sony HDTV, Italian leather reclining sofas, BBQ, beach stuff (cleaned before/after guests), comfy beds, lots of infant/kid gear. Dogs 35 lbs under welcome. You'll love it here.

De ruimte
Come enjoy Twin Palms, the comfy island home of a best-selling food writer & her tech husband. Our ground-level classic rambler is just two short blocks to epic white sandy beaches. Private heated pool surrounded by lush tropical palms. Cook meals in our fully equipped kitchen remodeled in 2018 with all new appliances. Two kitchen islands means lots of space to hang out and cook, eat or just drink wine together. Layout is great for two/extended families sharing, or a friends retreat.

To assure optimal cleanliness during the recent virus outbreak, we've installed the following protocols:
- all linens, including quilts/duvets and towels, will be replaced and washed off-site between guests
- Sets of beach gear will be rotated in and out so they can be cleaned between guests
- All items in cupboards will be washed and replaced between guests, including dishes, silverware, spice jars, oils, cookware, etc.
- All children's toys will be sprayed with disinfectant
- All hard surfaces treated three times with disinfectant following cleaning

We provide beach stuff, including chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards and sandcastle gear. Help yourself to anything in the cupboards, which we keep stocked with spices, oils, vinegar, etc. for cooking great meals. Help yourself to dozens of books, DVDs or more than 20 board games. For families, we've got kid dinnerware, a high chair, two folding cribs, a toddler cot, indoor and pool toys and even a baby monitor.

We provide all guests with a 25-page guide to the house, island and local restaurants. The chef owner recommends great places to buy local seafood. We pride ourselves on providing a great experience for all our guests. You won't find a better value anywhere on the island.

Quick FAQ

Q. How big is your pool?
Our custom lagoon-style kidney-shaped pool installed in 2014. At it's widest, it measures 12 feet, at its narrowest, about 9 feet. It's about 23 feet long. It features a real rock waterfall, lush landscaping. Seating is spread out over three deck areas. Our outdoor deck can seat ten at one time. We keep our pool at 87 degrees+ all year and have it serviced twice a week for optimal cleanliness.

Q. How close are you to the beach?
We're located about 250 meters from the beach, about two blocks, a five-ish minute stroll or a one-minute drive. We have a small trolley to carry all your beach gear. We provide plenty of towels for both indoor use and beach/pool use, a new front-loading washer/dryer combo with 20-minute wash setting.

Q. Are you kid-friendly?
You bet! We're completely set up for kids, with a high chair, folding crib, toddler cot, baby monitor, indoor toys, beach toys, kids books, kids plates/bowls/cups, family friendly DVDs, etc. We also have high locks installed on the doors near the pool.

Q. What is the bedroom situation like?
The house has four bedrooms plus the Lido room which can be used as an optional fifth bedroom. The setup is good for two families sharing.

Here's how they break down:
- Captains Quarters (king bed)
- Shell bedroom (queen)
These two share a bathroom with a tub. There is a door from the living that transforms those rooms into its own little two-bedroom area.

- Waterfall (California King)
- Lido Room
These two rooms have French doors opening directly to the pool area, and they share a bathroom with a shower with river rock floor (soothing on sore feet). Lido has a daybed that can be used as two twins or as a king. Lido is stocked with board games, Texas hold-em sets, cheese boards, kids coloring stuff, etc.

Hemingway (double)
This small bedroom on its own off the dining room. It has a cool custom-made barn door and a desk. This room has a full/double bed.

Q. How do we get keys?
A. No keys! We use coded locks so you can arrive at any time using a secure code unique to you, generally the last four digits of your mobile phone number so you can remember it easily.

Toegang voor gasten
The whole place is yours. The pool is so private you can swim au natural should you desire. Just treat everything with the same respect you'd show to a lovely friend who lent you a beach house.

Andere dingen waar je op moet letten
Holmes Beach has a "quiet hours" ordinance in force from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. We ask all guests to sign an agreement that they understand these rules. We strongly prefer Saturday to Saturday bookings, particularly during popular months (February, March, April, June, July).

Holmes Beach, Florida, Verenigde Staten

People often say that Anna Maria Island is like 1950s Florida. It's just a slower pace, with no high rises or chain restaurants. It's just a lovely little beach community on a beautiful tropical island. We are in a residential neighborhood that's generally peaceful yet easy to get to everything. There is only one other vacation near us, and it just happens to be next door. They are usually fine, but should they be too rowdy, just let us know and we'll contact the owner.

I'm a French-trained chef and New York Times bestselling author. Mike is an architectural and multidisciplinary designer and does occasional marketing consulting in the tech industry. We were married in 2004 on Anna Maria Island, where my family moved in the late 1970s. I bought our home here on the island 2002 while I was living in London; Mike bought a home in Seattle the same year. When we were married in 2004, we decided to keep both houses so we could spend time with our parents. Mike's father lived in Washington State and my mom continued to live in the same house she grew up in on the island, and for several years, my in-laws were able to spend a good chunk of their time at Twin Palms, the name we gave to our island house. After they passed away, we decided to shift that house into a rental so that others could experience the relaxing magic of the island while we're in Seattle. We're pretty easy going people. We've traveled all over the world and lived abroad in London and Paris. We have a small terrier named Maddy who we adore. We're both ex-Microsoft, so we love gadgets and tech-y things. I've always had a passion for cooking, history and literature, so you'll find cookbooks, novels, history books and several years' of Smithsonian and National Geographic magazines all over our houses. We both believe that being generous and open is the key to living a good life. My grandfather used to say, "You can't give generosity away; it always comes back to you."

Tijdens je verblijf
You'll be greeted after you arrive by one of us (if we're on the island), or by our house manager, Lida. We'll make sure you're settled and answer any questions or address issues. Lida has lived on the island for more than 20 years and lives next door.

When we're on the island, we stay in the adjacent writing cottage. The two are completely separate from one another and the pool is accessible only from the main house where you'll be staying.
