This enchanting three bedroom / two bath ranch style home is located on a quiet street and less than a 5 minute walk to Gulf Beach. Ranch style construction means easy access to and from the house with no steps to climb. The kitchen 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 pool can be heated at an additional cost. Just let us know your preference. Backyard is surrounded by a privacy fence.

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. While smoking is strictly prohibited in our home, you may feel free to smoke outside on the patio.

Free high speed cable internet service is provided during your stay. Just bring your laptop or tablet and hook up. The telephone allows for free calling within the continental United States.

We have tried to provide you with everything you need to make your vacation a memorable one.

You will find it easy to rent items on the island, like, bikes, boats, kayaks, beach supplies, baby supplies, or a golf cart. Upon your arrival, you will find a binder in our home that includes information on the island, restaurant’s, things to do, how to rent items, local attractions, etc.

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 two blocks from the FREE ANNA MARIA TROLLEY STOP, corner of

Willow and Gulf. Historic Pine Avenue is a short 3 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.

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 children are now grown.

Ramona Griffin purchased this house in 2013

Why Ramona Griffin chose Anna Maria

In 2011 we purchased our first home on Anna Maria (called Sapphire Surf). We have enjoyed renting the home so we chose to purchase another home. 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, having a home on a canal, 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.

A most relaxing holiday...

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th visit to AMI and our 4th time staying in one of Ramona’s properties (our other stays were in Sapphire Surf). As always the property met our expectations and Ramona has done a wonderful job in making us feel very welcome. The house is in a very peaceful spot yet close enough to the beach and Pine Ave that we never felt too secluded. The amenities in the house were great and the pool area is a great place for the whole family to have fun. There is also a boat dock at the end of the garden which is great if you want to rent a kayak for a few days or just sit on the dock and try a spot of fishing. There is a trolley in the garage along with a beach umbrella and folding chairs, pretty much everything you will need to spend the day at the beach (just bring the sun block!!!).

This is a perfect spot on the island. On a dead end but near everything. Cute house, perfect and pretty private pool, Big flat screens in every bed room, great lanai. We had a great time and are looking forward to booking again.

Great house and great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this house, its amenities, its location, and the owners' thoughtfulness and responsiveness. The backyard was great! We loved the pool and the fact that we could dock our boat. The beach and restaurants are walking distance and this is a great section of the island. We can't wait to go back. Thanks Ramona.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The house was in a perfect location - 2 blocks to the beach and 3 blocks to the main shopping area and even closer to some casual dining options. The decor was very cute and the entire house very clean and well appointed. We loved the pool, having access to everything needed for the beach (coolers, chairs, beach games & toys as well as towels) and thoughtful extras in the kitchen like salt, pepper, oil and spices that many rentals don't include. We had a very relaxing break and the owners were great. Enjoy!
