SAPPHIRE SURF - PRIVATE HEATED POOL, NORTH END, GROUND LEVEL,

Anna Maria House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Enjoy the quiet and comfort of SAPPHIRE SURF on the North End of Anna Maria Island. This enchanting two bedroom/two bath ranch style home is located on a quiet street and less than a 4 minute walk to The Gulf of Mexico beach. Ranch style construction means easy access to and from the house with no steps to climb. The newly remodeled kitchen has granite countertops and is completely equipped with dishwasher, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, blender and all the conveniences of a modern well equipped kitchen. The dining room opens to the lanai screened enclosure. The new in ground pool provides an amazing outdoor extension from the lanai and the elegant interior. The yard is surrounded by a privacy fence.

The patio around the new pool is professionally landscaped. There is a grilling patio just outside the lanai enclosure to provide our guests with the flexibility to enjoy the grounds while grilling the fresh catch (or steak) of your choice. The patio includes comfortable seating/sunbathing chairs and an outdoor hot/cold shower. While smoking is strictly prohibited in our home, you may feel free to smoke outside on the patio.

The master bedroom contains a king-size bed, full chest of drawers for your clothes, large closet, its own ceiling fan, 42” Plasma HDTV, telephone, alarm clock. A bathroom is next to the bedroom and has a single sink, walk in shower, toilet, hairdryer, make-up magnifiying mirror, and weight scale.

Best of all we’re located within walking distance to almost anything you may want to do or may need, and if you want to go further, we are only one block from the FREE ANNA MARIA TROLLEY STOP. Historic Pine Avenue is a short 4 block walk that has quaint shops, cafes, restaurants, including the General Store, Ginny's and Jane E’s where you can browse the gift shop or sit down with locals in the café. Grocery shopping couldn’t be more convenient with the Publix store being only 3 miles away (which can be reached via the trolley).

Family Circle Magazine, May/2012 Issue, page 90, article, “The Best of Florida” boasts about Anna Maria's NO high-rises, NO big-chain hotels or NO fast-food restaurants-just vintage bungalows, small-scale condos and mom-and-pop shops. Ditch the car and ride your bike to the bay and Gulf beaches. Please consider our adorable beach home, SAPPHIRE SURF, as your destination choice.

Our goal is simple: We provide a high quality rental experience at a fair price. Contact us for availability.

My family and I live in Austin Texas. Growing up in New Jersey, I enjoyed spending time at the 'Jersey Shore' with my friends and family. I believe this is one reason why I wanted to own a home near the beach. I'm an avid quilter, which occupies the majority of my time as my childern are now grown.

Ramona Griffin purchased this house in 2011

Two years ago, my friend who owns a home on Anna Maria Island invited me to spend time with her. I fell in love with the island from the first day. I went back with her one year later and started looking for a home for my family. Late 2011, we purchased Sapphire Surf for our enjoyement and people who want to rent it from us. What drew me to Anna Maria is the slow pace of life, great beaches, friendly people and simple life it offers.

Some of the unique benefits we enjoy while at the property are: Short walk to the beach, walking the beach looking for sea shells, sunsets (and sunrise), ice cream store around the corner, eating at Sunsets, Rod & Real, City Pier, and riding a bike to explore the island.

WONDERFUL TIME

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 6 had an amazing time at Sapphire Surf! The pool felt so secluded! The outside area was so beautifully landscaped. The interior of the house was warm and inviting. Beautifully decorated and a perfect size for our family. Everything we needed was there like beach towels and chairs! Also, the house is a ranch so it's perfect for those that can't do stairs. We were so close to everything. We rented a golf cart but it wasn't needed. We could walk to the bay, pier, ocean or ice cream. We enjoyed homemade doughnuts off Pine Street or the most amazing vanilla ice cream at Ginny and Janes. Loved the whole experience. Ramona and Mark were amazing too! I felt like our family made new friends. Ramona called to check on us and see if we needed anything! She really went above and beyond to make our stay the best!

CHILL-OUT

  • 5 of 5
After doing our homework and reading the previous reviews, they were all right. Upon entering Sapphire Surf, we knew we made the right decision. The house was clean, well equipt and nicely decorated. Relaxing by the pool, we enjoyed making our supper on the new BBQ. Being situated close to shops and restaurants made it easy to see the sights. We did go for walks and loved the island. One highlight was watching the sun go down as we waited to be seated on the beach front at the Sandbar Restaurant. Service was great as well as the food. A must, we went twice, is a visit to Dipps Ice cream. Not your average cone here. When we arrived home we checked out the availability for our next visit. Hope to see you again Sapphire Surf!!!

GREAT POOL AREA AND HOUSE. RIGHT IN THE CENTER OF AMI. EVERYTHING IS WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE.

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at Sapphire Surf. The house is very clean and well appointed. We have rented many cottages over the years and too often the rentals have photos that don't show the downside, but this house was nicer than the photos show. The pool and lanai were our favorite parts of the house. Plenty of restaurants within easy walking distance. The beach is only 2 blocks away. We would recommend this to our friends and will likely come back again soon.

WONDERFUL STAY

  • 5 of 5
We (family of 4) had a fantastic stay at Sapphire Surf. We loved this cute and cozy home the minute we walked in. Everything was very clean and lovely decorated. We had everything we needed: Full equipped kitchen, towels for the beach and shower, pool toys for the kids in the garage, some games, heated pool, barbecue grill, close distance to the beach, restaurants in walking distance, nice TV,... Ramona called the first evening to see that everything is fine and also the evening before our vacation ended. We really appreciated this and felt special about it. The communication with Ramona was always very friendly, helpful and prompt - fantastic and thanks again! We will definitely stay again at Sapphire Surf whenever we return to Anna Maria Island!
