Thanks so much for a great stay, Tuckers! This house is fantastic--just what we wanted for our beach stay! The house is just steps away from the beach; I never even wore shoes to walk the short street and dunes path to the water. Plenty of room for our two families (4 adults, 2 teenagers, 1 child, and a bunch of musical instruments) to spread out or hang out together as we wanted. That was great because it rained all week, but there was enough of a break in the rain daily that we enjoyed lovely beach time each day anyway. And whenever it rained, we just took the opportunity to laze about on the a-ma-zing porch, which was a favorite spot for everyone, rain or shine. (Okay, the separate bar in the sunroom was an admitted favorite spot too... ;-) Note that this house is not fancy or new; it's an old quirky beach cottage, and we absolutely loved that comfortable, weathered vibe. The kitchen is fully stocked with enough dishes, platters, flatware, mixing bowls, sharp knives, and cookware to feed an army--plus two refrigerators! Great water pressure in the showers, and there's an outdoor shower too. Great AC. Plenty of beach chairs, toys, and towels. Lots of board games, movies, and books too. Comfortable beds. Solid internet. Whenever we had a question, Robert always responded within the hour--very attentive to our needs, though we never met in person. Check in and out were so easy. Thanks so much for your hospitality, Tuckers--we will definitely stay here again!

Our family of 4 stayed at Robert's characterful beach house for a week. We couldn't have wished for a better experience to start our Florida vacation. The home is full of American charm character, close to the beach and central on Anna Maria Island. Beds were comfortable and library has great reading material. Marc and family

Our family really enjoyed our stay at the Tucker house on Holmes Beach. It is literally just steps from the beach. The house is stocked with everything you will need for a worry free vacation, including beach toys and umbrellas. Robert responded within minutes of any questions we had. It is the perfect beach house no matter your age.
