About Steve McInturff, Owner

My wife and I have been married now for 37 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

Why Steve McInturff, Owner chose Anna Maria

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Second time also Great!

  • of 5

This was the second year at this home. Beautiful setting, away from it all and a great time to slow down. We had 3 generations stay again. The layout gives a lot of privacy and comfort for all. Love the screened deck off the back for morning coffee. The dock was also nice to fish and even got to watch the dolphins one day. The beaches are my favorite, the fishing was my husbands favorite. The kids found another school of mackerel to fish. At night they caught a shark off the city pier. Thanks!

Great retreat for a large family or several couples. There's room for everyone to be together or do their own thing.

Direct access to the Bimini Bay makes it all the more enjoyable for fishing, kayaking or other power boat use. We brought our own kayaks and also rented an 18' runabout from Bradenton Marine. This kept several avid fishermen busy along with nightly shark fishing sessions at City Pier.

Best vacation yet!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Anna Maria and the first time we have brought our boat on vacation. The verdict is unanimous--best vacation yet! Honestly, the whole family is ready to relocate.

The property: Big, clean, comfortable. We're picky and this house does not disappoint. Plenty of room inside and out--more than we needed, but we enjoyed it--a larger group would be very comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked. Plenty of room in the driveway for cars + the boat trailer. The setting is private and has great views of Bimini bay from the dock and beautiful boats at Galati Yachts. We have 7 year old twins and we spent hours fishing off the dock.

Anna Maria and surrounding area: The island is everything we were expecting. As I mentioned we brought our boat with us. The 12,000 lb boat lift which was one of the primary reasons we selected this property. I cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed having the boat at the ready--we used it every day for a different adventure. Sitting anchored on the gulf side of Egmont in crystal clear water is simply a different world. Running down to Mar Vista on Longboat for an early dinner and having multiple dolphin sightings within a few hundred yards of the restaurant pretty nice too. If you have a boat--bring it!

The owners: Steve was extremely helpful and knowledgable. Our boating experience had been exclusively inland lakes. Steve was very helpful in answering my questions about coastal boating as we prepared. Much appreciated!

Great property, great owner, great area--we'll be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a wonderful review! It makes me happy to know that you had such a good time, and certainly plan to return! The island IS a special place....in many ways, it's just a small village. No concrete high rises, shopping malls, car horns, and what have you. But rather a place that time seems to have passed by. Peaceful, pleasant, beautiful and stress free. Just the way I like it. I'm glad that you got to visit Egmont Key. There are times, especially on weekdays, when there are very few other boats there. Almost like you have a tropical island to yourself. I hope that you were able to visit Egmont around sunset, when the thousands of birds come to the south end (refuge) of the island to roost for the night. It's like something from National Geographics. Turn your motor off and sit quietly watching and listening to the sounds of nature. Truly remarkable. And the bonus is that glorious sunset! It's just doesn't get much better than that in my book. Thank you again for the review......don't be a stranger, come visit again.

Fabulous Long Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place for a "girls' weekend with ladies ranging in age from mid twenties to mid eighties. It was spacious, beautiful, and quiet with everything we could have possibly wanted for cooking, eating, bathing, relaxing, etc., etc. The elevator was very helpful in getting luggage to and from the house. We were close to restaurants, shops, the beach; but in a very quiet location with no evidence anyone else was nearby. The water view of the boats was peaceful and relaxing. Everyone had a wonderful time and we would love to make this house our yearly getaway!

Owner's Response: Ahh....glad that you could get together and enjoy the property but more importantly enjoy each other! I have several buddies ranging in age from the 50's to the 80's. We try to get together as a "mens" group at least twice a year. It's always a lot of laughs, a few cocktails, and a bunch of lies. LOL.. I hope that when you plan your next getaway, that you will once again choose our place. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.....and I hope to see you back next year.

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.

Owner's Response: Dave, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. And, it was nice to have met you and some of your other family members. It's always good to have the family together, and especially good to have them spend quality time with you like a vacation. I remember that both you and your wife are retired school teachers.....It's almost that time of year when all the kids come back to school....as you watch the hussle and bussle of the start of a new school year...sit back...relax...and enjoy no longer being a part of that. Plan another visit....love to have you back!

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.
