The Tiki is a stunning beachfront property, offering a total 10 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and features a pool and spa.
Words cannot begin to properly describe this privately tucked away island paradise alongside the beautiful gin clear waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Nestled into the middle of Anna Maria Island and located on one of the largest privately-owned stretches of Holmes Beach, The Tiki is one of the most elite and unique beachfront complexes on the island! Comprised of two separate structures - a ground-level home and a two story building with an upstairs and two downstairs apartments, to offer plenty of privacy and space for the family or entire group of friends!
This one-story ground level 1930s beach bungalow has been carefully and meticulously renovated over the last several years. The home’s original exterior cottage design has remained true to the heart of the home while the interior has been entirely renovated and upgraded with the finest amenities. The gardens and landscaping with beautiful lush tropical foliage has been featured in the 2016 Anna Maria Island’s Tour of Homes. Oolitic limestone stones create beautiful archways and accent the walkways of this expansive beach paradise. There are also 3 recently renovated private units located next to the cottage. Two are on the ground floor and the other is on the Second Floor tucked away between gorgeous palms. This entire 10 bedroom complex will be your favorite vacation destination from now on!
From the moment you step through the front door, you are struck with the impressive sight of the blue waters of the Gulf, the sugar-white sand of Holmes Beach, and your own private ‘Tiki’ bar perched upon the sand. The entry opens up into the home’s expansive great room, consisting of living room, kitchen, and dining with massive steel table seating 8. This chef’s kitchen is equipped with top-of-the-line appliances and kitchenware including a massive refrigerator and freezer combination, double stove/ovens, and dishwasher. The living room has a sectional sofa, wine cooler and bar area, beverage fridge and ice machine, large screen tv, and sliding doors along the entire back of the home to enjoy pristine beach views at all times. The home is equipped with HD smart televisions, cable, and wifi throughout.
From the great room, you enter the master suite which boasts a full walk-in closet, and ensuite bathroom with soaking tub and impressive steam and aromatherapy shower. Use the barn door in the great room to access the ‘kid’s room’ with bunk beds and a trundle designed to be as cheerful and charming. The third bedroom features a king bed with a walk-in closet, while the 4th bedroom has a queen bed. There is also an in-home washer and dryer. The second bathroom features an enormous and gorgeously tiled walk-in shower with multiple showerheads. The decor throughout the home is designed to immerse you in that coastal beach feel.

These three homes share outdoor patio space with the adjoining unit, which is equipped with a grill, outdoor table and chairs and access to a top of the line hot tub.
Once you’ve toured the properties, you immediately will want to step outside onto your own private beach paradise. The home’s main feature is its one-of-a-kind ‘Tiki’, is an enormous tiki bar unique to the home, which can seat twenty and is fully equipped to entertain with electricity, sound system, lights, television, and ice machine. These tiki bars are no longer allowed to be built so close to the beach and is truly one of the most unique finds on the island. There are two smaller tiki huts which seat four each comfortably. Along the crest where the beach meets the sea grass, sits a line of colorful Adirondack chairs that invite you in to sit back, relax, and enjoy a cocktail or beverage while taking in all the sights, sounds, and smells of the Gulf and also make this home recognizable to anyone who passes by. On those cooler nights, toss a few logs into the one-of-a-kind designed and created ‘Fire Ball’ beautifully constructed from an old mooring ball. Perfect for settling next to a cozy fire on the beach while enjoying some stargazing and smores!
Continue winding along the paths in your beachside backyard to find an impressive year-round heated pool (50 foot x 18 foot, 6 foot deep) equipped with lights, fountain and sun deck. You’ll also want to enjoy the warm soaking spa perched above and cascading into the pool. There are patio areas with a grill, tables and chairs for outdoor dining, as well as an outdoor seating, loungers, and a hammock to relax and take a snooze under the shady palms. Additionally there is also an additional fully enclosed, air-conditioned outdoor half bath with conch shell sink. This is a perfect must-have for those outdoor beachside gatherings so as not to track sandy feet inside the house! There’s also an outdoor shower.
Enjoy this home with a few friends or family - it is the perfect place to gather and celebrate.
