Anna Maria Island is a quaint, quiet barrier island off the west coast of Florida, about an hour south of Tampa. With a cozy atmosphere and a laid-back attitude, and only one tall building on the island, it's the perfect get away for relaxing.
About Alice Torres Sutton
Hi! Our family has owned this property since 1971. My grandparents built it as their retirement home, and now it belongs to us. My mom, Gladys, is on the left in this photo, and that's me, Alice, on the right. Mom passed away in 2014, but her spirit of hospitality continues. I live up in Tampa, and visit the beach every weekend with my husband and family.
Alice Torres Sutton purchased this cottage in 1983
Why Alice Torres Sutton chose Holmes Beach
Our family chose to purchase the Cottage because there was no way we could resist! The property is huge, and has the most magnificent view of the beach, especially at sunset, and of course, we loved the neighbors (my grandparents). We live in Tampa, but visit the Island every weekend, and it is a quick trip, about an hour. The Island has an unspoiled small-town charm--like Mayberry but with sand and sun! No matter how short your stay on the Island, it will refresh your spirit.
What makes this cottage unique
Our cottage offers simple peace and quiet, with sunny or shady spots on the patio facing the beach. The patios are nestled in a native Florida meadow, complete with blanket flowers, railroad vine, and sea oats-- it's a trip to the past, when life was much simpler. When families visit, the patio area is a favorite of the older crowd, since it is shielded from the wind and sun, and it has a horseshoe court. The screened porch is a great place for morning coffee and the newspaper, afternoon snacks, or evening refreshments.
