If you’re looking for a peaceful out of the way spot on Anna Maria Island, Beachview condos in Holmes Beach may not actually have a view of the beach, but a short walk to the beach will give you all the view you’ll want.
The two separate buildings that comprise the eight units of Beachview condos are located at 3702 and 3704 Sixth Avenue. Each building has four units linked by the fenced pool, which is not heated. The buildings were built in 1984 and have about 1,100 square feet.
There are two bedrooms and two baths. and two screened porches, considerably expanding the living space. Units have interior washers and dryers. Under building parking is provided with adjacent storage and an elevator.
As of this writing, there were two units on the market, one listed at $529,900 and the other at $519,000. However, prior to these current available units there have been very few sales. The last sale recorded was in 2004 for $395,000, prior to that was one in 2003 for $248,800 and 2002 for $210,000. Rentals are permitted, and are approximately $1,000 a week in season.
One of the best things about Beachview condos, beside being able to walk to the beach, is being able to walk to just about everything else. Publix as well as all the other shops and restaurants along Gulf Drive in Holmes Beach are at your doorstep without being in your direct line of vision. The Island trolley stop is also a short walk along Gulf Drive.
Beachview condos have that cozy get to know your neighbor feel that some of the larger complexes lack. They offer good value, convenient shopping and easy access to the beach, if not a beach view.
