Harrington House Beachfront Bed & Breakfast

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 8, 2009

Highly recommend the Harrington House. We have been visiting for 7 years and look forward to each stay. This is a place where we can truly relax and feel welcome. The staff is very attentive and friendly and the rooms are charming and kept very clean. There is no better place to unwind as you eat a delicious breakfast outside by the pool, overlooking the gulf, and take a long walk on the beach or a bike ride after breakfast.

My wife and I were looking to stay on Anna Maria Island for three nights for some R&R after visiting family in Port Charlotte for Christmas. I combed through so many places on Tripadvisor and other web sites I was overwhelmed. We ended up here via a recommendation of another property owner who had no vacancy. We really lucked out. The room was great - right on the beach with a direct Gulf view to die for. Inside it was large with separate double shower and double jacuzzi, gas fireplace and fridge. Open the sliding doors and walk out onto the covered patio staring at the Gulf, a few more steps you are on the beach. We spent the late afternoons on the deck enjoying a glass of wine and watching the fabulous sunsets. We rode bikes (provided) all around the island which is very low key with no big hotels. Megan was especially helpful with the reservation process and helping us move to another room - we booked kind of late so the original room we were in was only available for the first two nights. The only problem was leaving (we did book one extra night though). Patty and Mark, you run a first class establishment with a great staff. Can't wait to return.

If you like a quiet retreat, rooms with an old-world charm, beautiful landscaping, direct access to the nicest part of the beach, a friendly staff and delicious food, this is the place for you. It is for us.

My husband and I spent just two nights and three days at Harrington House, but I came home more rested and refreshed than after most two-week vacations. For a "real" vacation, I must spend time preparing the week before, plus a week after catching up on mail, laundry, and work. Harrington House is only an hour away from our home. We packed shorts and sandals, jumped in the car, and away we went. The property is lovely, flowers everywhere, and of course, that magnificent beach. Add to this our lovely room, comfy bed, and those yummy, decadent breakfasts---sign me up for more!

My husband and I booked a place here based on the recommendation of friends, and we were glad we took their advice. We stayed in Bungalow 1, a one bedroom one bath unit with a full kitchen and living area. The beach decor gives the place a fresh clean look. Granite counters and stainless appliances make the kitchen ready for gourmet meals!

Harrington House is located in a quiet residential area of Holmes Beach. Breakfast is excellent and we enjoyed eating on the deck overlooking the beach. We used the bikes and rode all over the island. We highly recommend Harrington House!

I and four friends rented villa 1, adjacent to the B&B and also managed by Patti and Mark. It's style was spacious opulence in contrast to the charm of the B&B, but it was luxuriously furnished, and totally comfortable, with all amenities and a breathtaking view.
The management offered to help us in any way, but no help was needed. The website is very helpful with many photographs of the condominium.

I am an Innkeeper in Florida,but when my daughter comes to visit we head to the beach. We always know right where to go where we will be treated warmly and just as I treat our guests. Well this trip was no different. Patty, Ann, and the whole gang did it again. They made us feel right @ home and more. We needed a little something special for breakfast and it was done perfectly. I have always and will continue to tell everyone what a great experience they will have @ the Harrington House. Thanks to All!! Cathy and Kerri
