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.

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.

About Ramona Griffin

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

Why Ramona Griffin chose Anna Maria

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.

What makes this house unique

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 Week

  • 5 of 5
A comfortable, pristine haven for our family of five, this was our best VRBO experience yet. The pool, patio, and lanai were perfect for hanging out as a family. The bright kitchen was larger than expected and had every tool we needed. Walking distance to our Anna Maria favorites - coffee, restaurants, candy store, pier, and beach. The games and building toys and adorable toddler chairs were appreciated.

A wonderful place!! Cried when we had to go home!!!

  • 5 of 5
I can not give sapphire surf high enough praise. We were reluctant about staying off of the water ( and for that matter a house). We were so use to renting a condo somewhere on the beach. This is our second trip to the area, last year we stayed in longboat key and once we found AMI we spent all of our time in AMI. So this year we stayed at sapphire surf and can honestly tell you we will be back again and again.
We love the house perfect size for our family of 5. The pool area is perfect for the in between time when we were not on the beach. The house has a perfect location for walking to dinners and of course the kids favorite DIPs ice cream shop. The walk to the beach is actually very short about a 3 minute walk.
The house is stocked with everything you could possibly want and or need. (Thank You Ramona). I give Sapphire Surf my highest recommendation. Clean,comfortable, relaxing what more do you need.

Anna Maria Excellence

  • 5 of 5
We've vacationed at Anna Maria for many years now. The location of the unit is perfect. Just one street across from the Gulf of Mexico and near the retail shopping on Pine Avenue. When you get ready to head to the beach, Ramona has stocked up most everything you need; beach buggy, noodles, towels, beach chairs, etc... The home has been beautifully remodeled. New televisions, appliances, wifi. The house is immaculate and the pool and patio area are great for hanging out when you need a break from the sand. Ramona is super helpful and easy to deal with. Check out Hurricane Hank's and the Rod and Reel Pier for sure. Highly recommended.

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!
