About The Area

The village of Anna Maria and town of Holmes Beach have shops and casual dining within walking distance or a short ride on the free Island trolley.  Daily boat sightseeing and fishing trips are available year round.  Perico, Neal and Robinson preserves are closeby for walking, kayaking and biking.  

House Rules

No smoking on the premises is allowed.  Pets are not allowed although in special circumstances have been permitted in the past.

The town has a stict noise ordinance and guests are asked to be aware of noise after 10:00 PM that might disturb neighbors.




Captain's Quarters is designed for privacy and quiet.  Our guests have included older retired couples, professionals who are seeking a tranquil close to beach environment, and a family with children who spend a whole month in the summer enjoying the beach, local surfing classes, library programs and bike rides.  We do not recommend more than 2 persons but some guests have had an occssional overnight visitor.   Generally, because the space is only 550 sq ft and one bedroom, we do not accommodate more than 2 persons.  The oriental rugs could also be an issue with small children and/or a pet, so generally we discourage those guests.

This place had everything we could wish for and more! Barbara showed us around at arrival and we were amazed. A very cosy living room, bedroom with a comfortable bed, a big private terrass where we enjoyed all our breakfasts looking at the sea. There's a tiny kitchen with everything we needed to make both breakfast, lunch and dinner. A good bathroom with shower, and there's also an outdoor shower, perfect when arriving from the beach. Oh, and the beach is litterarly like 100 steps from the house. A long paradise-like beach with not a lot of people. Over all, we couldn't have asked for anything more, the place is amazing. Thank you so much Barbara! (I read something about the dogs. Well, they seem like the most quiet and well behaved dog I've ever seen. And they live with Barbara downstairs, so we hardly saw/heard them at all.)

"Old Florida" charm in the PERFECT location!

We just returned from our first trip to Anna Maria Island, and thanks in a large part to this listing, we will be back. To start, Barbara was a gracious hostess, assuring that all was prepped perfectly for our arrival. The kitchen was appointed with all one would need for a short stay, including not only the usual pots and dishes, but also plastic wraps, paper towels and dish soap. (Having seen some former reviews where the size of the kitchen was a complaint, it is indeed a small galley kitchen. When I am on vacation, I wish to be able to make a simple breakfast, lunch and occasional dinner, and I was able to accomplish all 3 here). The bedroom is light and airy, with a ceiling fan and wonderfully comfortable king sized bed and deluxe linens. (For the more "temperature sensitive", there is both central heat and central AC). The deck overlooking the gulf was THE place to enjoy morning coffee, or an evening's glass of wine with some snacks. The walk to the beach was ~100 steps, so we spent most of our time outdoors on the cool quartz sand. (In answer to a former complaint lodged against the dogs, again, we had NO problem. Barbara lives downstairs and the dogs were well behaved. For the ENTIRE time we were there, we heard them for NO more than 5 minutes TOTAL). This is NOT a slick modern condo.It is a wonderful home in a peaceful and close-to-the-water neighborhood. If you need to relax and take in all nature has to offer on this low-key island, then THIS is your place. We are so glad to have found it!

We loved our stay

Our stay at the apartment was wonderful. It was clean and more like living at home than a hotel. We slept so well with that fresh ocean air breeze. It was nice to be so close to the ocean. I also loved all the natural foliage around the apartment we rented. We loved our stay and would do it again in a heartbeat! Del and Deb January, 2017

Beautiful and Relaxing Property

This is a quaint and beautiful property with a superb view of the Gulf. I thoroughly enjoyed my ten day stay. The property has great access to the beautiful Gulf beach. I look forward to returning to this property.
