My wife and I have been married now for 35 years. We enjoy many outdoor activities. I fell in love with the water many years ago, and actually bought my first boat while working part time in college. While I enjoy hunting, I especially enjoy saltwater fishing. We also enjoy quiet time on the water, calm evenings at idle speed, watching and waiting for that beautiful sunset. We are members of the Gasparilla Krewe of Venus. We have a lot of fun throughout the year, at Krewe events as well as the many parades in which our Krewe is involved.

Steve McInturff, Owner purchased this house in 1998

My wife and I first visited Anna Maria Island in the mid 1980's. We immediately fell in love with the charm of the island, the soft white sugar sand beaches, clear and colorful water, friendly locals, quaint shops, casual restaurants,and overall island lifestyle. We made many visits to Anna Maria over the years, hoping that someday we would be able to buy a home there. That hope came true in 1998, and we have enjoyed ourselves and our time on the island immensely. Being unable to use our home as frequently as we would like, we have decided to offer our home as a vacation rental and we hope that our quests will enjoy their time there as much as we have.

It seems that the world stops when we are there. The everyday pressures we all face in life, on our jobs, and daily struggles seem to disappear. Life just slows down, and we start to appreciate more the gift of life, and the joys and rewards that our hard work and dedication has provided us. The sun, the water, the happy smiles of people we meet, just seem to take us to another internal place.

BEATING THE WINTER BLUES, TO RELAX AT ANNA MARIA ISLAND

  • 5 of 5
Steve,
It was great to have a two week reprieve in Florida to escape the winter in Pittsburgh.
For a week, two of our children and their families plus my daughter's in-laws were able to join us. My grandchildren, almost 9 mo. and almost 3 years enjoyed watching the blue herons swallow the fish I caught from the dock. We all enjoyed walking and bike riding on the island. The weather was beautiful (70's and 80's). it only rained one day. We were also able to take in two Pirate games in Bradenton.
The location of your home made it very private for our family. The bay was a short walk across the road and the Gulf was a short drive. We ate a the Sandbar restaurant on the island and the food was delicious. I would highly recommend it. Using the elevator was a great way to move suitcases and belongings to and from the house. Well thought of! This vacation was part of my "Bucket List" to see the Pirates in Bradenton. I can cross it off my list, but we do hope to visit Anna Maria Island again some day. Your home was a wonderful place to stay.

MORE THAN EXPECTED

  • 5 of 5
Loved this place! It was beautiful, private and had a little something for everyone in our party. We had age ranging from 19 to 75 and all kinds of weather. Almost every day was spent fishing, on the beach, shopping or reading. Truly a perfect vacation. So much space in the house gave us all a lot of individual privacy or gathering for dinners. We were able to eat some of the fresh fish caught the same day :) Anna Marie Island is so adorable! The restaurants nearby were very good. People were very friendly. White sandy beaches were gorgeous. I can only hope we get to go next year! The owners were also great.

Owner's Response: We are happy that you enjoyed you stay. It's always good to get the family together for vacation, and Anna Maria Island is a perfect place to do that. It seems that so many of us are so busy these days that it's hard to find "family" time. I appreciate the fishing pictures that you emailed to me! Looks like everyone was having a blast, and also enjoyed the added bonus of a fresh, I mean caught that day fresh, fish fry! That's hard to beat. Thank you for taking the time to leave such a nice review and for taking such good care of our home. I hope that you will visit Anna Maria again, and when you do that you will once again choose our home as your gathering place.

EXTENDED WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
We came across this gem with a Google search. It appears too good to be true and the reviews reflect that but.......

It is true and worth every penny. The location is perfect whether you have a boat or just want to relax. More TVs than a sports bar and just a beautiful house all round. It's very private but still easy access to anywhere on the island. The dock is large and our 21' dingy fit like a glove. Fishing is excellent right off the dock and both Bay and Gulf access is great. Dining and the bay side beach is a short walk away. Gulf beach is a little father but an easy walk/ bike ride on a lightly traveled streets. Bring the family or just close friends. Once you arrive, no need to leave the island. Everything is here.

OK, there's the hype. Now the thanks.

Steve, we had a GREAT TIME and can't thank you enough for sharing your home. The bird life was unbelievable wherever we went. The sunset cruises beyond colorful and your neighbors just good folks! Nice tarpon and for me it's been 14 years since I've had a snook encounter. The macs were everywhere in the Bay and just a hoot on ultralight tackle. Taking the neighbors "skiing" on their Hewes was priceless and we're glad we could help. Our time was short and we had to cram a lot of enjoyment in a small window but that was OK because we're coming back for an extended stay. Thanks again and tell Smokey and his charming wife,"Hey" when you see them.

Excellent!

Owner's Response: What a great review! I'm glad that you were able to enjoy our home. I guess there was a little excitement when the neighbor's boat was about to sink. Thank you for calling me and for your help in that regard. Yes, the neighbors are great people. There are no strangers around them. Sounds like you did very well fishing too. And yes, the macks are around in abundance this time of year, as well as during the spring migration. But, are also around most all year. Fall is a great time to be on the island. The cooler weather is not cool.....just plain comfortable! Gotta love it!

Come, stay longer next time.

A GREAT FIND!

  • 5 of 5
We were so glad that we found your home in our search for a place to gather with our family for my son's wedding at the Sandbar. It could not have suited our needs better! The home itself is a "wow" and the property is truly one of a kind! We felt like we were on our own private island when we sat out back in those wonderful Adirondack chairs or down at the dock -- what a view! And there is a beautiful view from each and every window, too!

Your home is beautiful and gave us plenty of space for family dinners. The screened in porch is an amazing extension of the living/dining area! And I must say that the elevator was a huge help in getting luggage and food up to the 2nd and 3rd floors -- that's a real bonus!

After searching literally dozens of homes for rent on the island, we know we found the perfect one in 523 Seagull Way! Thanks for all of your assistance!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to post a review. I certainly enjoyed having you as a guest. So happy that the wedding turned out perfectly. Ed Chiles who owns the Sandbar is a personal friend of mine. What you may not know is that his father, was governor and multi- term US Senator. Great people. Ed does a great job with his three restaurants as well as his wedding catering.
I have been here for five days now after your departure. Enjoying every minute of it. I've made multiple improvements to the property this week. It had been some time since last I stayed here. Many times guests don't report little issues. I discovered a few and corrected them this week. Always trying to make things the way they should be.

Thank you again for your kind review. Always a pleasure to have folks that respect the property and care for it as if it were there own. I hope that you will visit the island again and that you will choose my home for your stay. It was a pleasure having you!!
Kindest regards,

Steve

GREAT STAY!

  • 5 of 5
The house is a very open contemporary style with room to spread out. For many folks the elevator would be a real plus. The location is private and the dock on Bimini Bay is very nice. We did not have a boat but it would be a great place to use one. The bay side beach is a short walk but the better gulf side beach, accessible at the gulf end of Pine Street, is about a 5 minute ride. The house met our expectations and we would love to stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope that you can come again. In your last email you said that you had great weather too. Sorry that you didn't catch too many crabs.....next time you come, I'll tell you where you can buy them live, and inexpensive too. Little crab boil on the dock can be a lot of fun with the family. We look forward to your next stay.

WONDERFUL HOME - PERFECT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
The home and location was everything we could have hoped for. Not being familiar with the island, it was difficult choosing the right location for our family vacation and we are so glad we nailed it! Great, open floor plan with plenty of space and easy flowing floor plan. Enjoyed the outside areas and boat dock as well. Enjoyed morning coffee at the waters edge while we watched the manatees swim. We even roasted marshmallows and made s'mores by the fire one evening. The home and kitchen was well stocked with all the necessities; blender, crock pot, pans, etc. Location to Pine Ave just a few blocks away was ideal. The boys could ride their bikes to the pier or ice cream parlor. We also enjoyed the close proximity to the bay as we brought our boat along. Looking forward to our next visit!

Owner's Response: I'm happy that you enjoyed your stay, and that you also had good weather. I was reading an article yesterday in The Islander, which is one of the two local weekly newspapers, and learned that Anna Maria Island was named by FlipKey as being one of the top 10 destinations in the world for family vacationing....I thought that was pretty impressive. I enjoy the peaceful setting that Anna Maria offers, and hope that our newly discovered fame doesn't change our quiet ways too greatly. I noticed in your review that you did get to see one of the manatees from the dock. They are large, odd looking creatures, but certainly a marvel to see up close.
I appreciate you taking the time to write a review. I hope that you will visit again, and that you will consider our property for your stay.
