“Great Vacation Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

After enjoying a week at Palm Tree Villas in 2010, my wife and I returned in 2011, 2012, and 2013 for a full month. Palm Tree Villas is a great spot for a relaxing vacation! The villas are exceptionally nice and the grounds are beautiful. The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful to guests. We have already booked our villa for 2014. We highly recommend Palm Tree Villas at Holmes Beach on Anna Maria Island. Plam Tree Villas offers your choice of studio, 1, 2, or 3 bedroom villas.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Just returned from a week's stay in Unit 25. It was super clean and we found the beds very comfortable, bathroom was great. Well outfitted kitchen with new appliances and granite countertops. The grounds and pool area are beautifully landscaped and we enjoyed having our coffee outdoors in the morning. We weren't able to use the comfy teak poolside loungers, because the cushions were soaking wet from sprinklers/morning moisture.

We had a problem with the air conditioning and Spence was on it, immediately. Whenever we had a question or needed something (shortage of beach towels & toilet paper the first few days), he responded within minutes - a great, friendly guy. Andrea, the manager, was also extremely helpful. On our last day, she helped me print out our boarding passes.

We were very impressed with the attention to detail and the friendliness/helpfulness of the staff. Beach "equipment" was supplied, which made our daily trips to the beach so easy. The beach is a short hop across the street, literally, a 3 minute walk.

We did notice the same late-night noise from the next door neighbors as mentioned in a previous review.

Highly recommend Palm Tree Villas for a family getaway - perfect location, great price and wonderful service.

Our family normally stay at the sister resort the Sunrise Garden Resort on Anna Maria which we love. When there was no room available at the Sunrise Garden Resort. Spence suggested the Palm Tree Villas.

It's in a quiet neighborhood, the landscape is wonderful the pool is awesome. We stayed in the two bedroom Condo. The Condo was clean and spacious and decorated nice. Each Bedroom had at flat screen TV in it. You couldn't ask for a better Kitchen area. The Dish washer was a bonus. We enjoyed the private patio in the back of our condo.

There's a g grill on site which is great for cooking out.
There's on site laundry which is great for people with kids, or who like to pack light.

The resort provided Wagons, Umbrella's, beach chairs and Beach toys. The resort is not on the beach but it's a brief walk to it. You can't get any closer. This is coming from a person who had two small children, wagon, toys, beach chair, beach tent and cooler to bring along. One of the things we enjoyed was the fact if we forgot something we could go back to the resort quickly.

The owners are a big part of why we continue to book our vacations at their resorts.
Spence and Jessie are both friend and warm people. Spence is easy to speak with you have questions or concerns. I can't say enough good things about them.
Andrea the resort manager greeted us with a smile when we checked in.

We're planning our vacation for next spring at the resort currently.
I will continue to recommend both resorts to my family and friends.

We had family join us this trip and they're looking at booking their spring break for next year too.

Unit 25 was very clean and comfortable. There are neighbors on the other side of the fence, on the next property, however, who made plenty of middle-of-the-night noise (loud conversation, loud radios and TVs, etc) several nights during our stay. Mattresses a little too soft, but not a big problem. Kitchen was very nice. Nice updated unit with modernized kitchen and bathroom.

Palm Tree Villas is a perfect, quiet island getaway! My husband and I stayed at the sister property, Sunrise Garden Resort, last March and loved it. When a room there was not available, Spence, the owner, suggested his other location. Amazing suggestion! GREAT location, a block from the beach (or 5 minutes from sunset), close to restaurants and stores and a block from a trolley stop. Our studio room was spotless, tastefully and completely furnished with a private patio for morning coffee. All beach items are provided including wagons, umbrellas, chairs and toys. The pool area is beautifully landscaped, very relaxing with covered lounge chairs and table and chairs. There is even a brand new gas grill for your use. We stayed for a week but we could have stayed forever. We HIGHLY recommend Palm Tree Villas and we will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Don't think you could choose a bad room...quiet location (slept with windows open at night), all...

This place has everything you could want in a weekend at the beach. The units are newly renovated with nice cabinets, granite countertops, dishwasher, flatscreen tv. My kids loved looking through the shells in the parking lot and finding sharks teeth. We got in the pool a little, but spent most of our daytime at the beach. My wife caught a flounder right in the surf. There are several wagons available for guests to use to pull beach chairs, coolers, etc across the street to the beach...only a couple hundred feet away. The beach access we used is next to Beach Bistro, one of the fanciest restaurants in Anna Maria Island. This was Martin Luther King weekend, and we were lucky to get a room at the last minute. We will definitely be back to enjoy AMI again soon.

My sister and I enjoyed several nights at Palm Tree. The villa was spacious, clean and private. We had our own private patio with access from the kitchen, dining . The grounds and pool were beautiful. Anna Maria Island is a more exclusive vacation destination, though very laid back and not pretentious in any way. That is why you pay a bit more . I told Spence , the owner that you can hear the ocean from the grounds and a short walk gets you to the beach. A quiet, beautiful beach . There are wagons, beach toys, chairs that are avail. to use . The villas are set amongst the residential area so if you are looking for quiet and lack of high rises and traffic, this is the place to go. I would also recommend renting bikes as you can do it cheaply and enjoy seeing the whole north end of Anna Maria by bike. I really enjoyed that !
