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.

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 children are now grown.

Ramona Griffin purchased this house in 2013

Two years ago 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.

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.

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!

A MOST EXCELLENT ISLAND EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our family beach get-away at Emerald Surf. The listing and location description were right on the mark for what we experienced. The owners have done an excellent job or remodeling and updating this comfortable 3-bedroom brick rancher and everything needed was provided - except food, but there was even a well-stocked supply of spices, etc.

It's a short walk to several excellent restaurants of various types and character, also a short walk to the beach and the (always) beautiful Gulf. The play pool in the back yard is excellent for relaxing and cooling off morning, noon and night.

Ramona was a very attentive owner and made sure that everything was OK after we arrived and before we left. We appreciated her attention.

I recommend this island home for a relaxed, comfortable getaway for 3 to 6 people, with close access to the gulf beach, access to a very nice and new on-site pool, access to restaurants and shopping, and even boat access to the Bay and Gulf through the canal along the back side of the property.

Thank you, Ramona. We almost certainly will return to enjoy your house again.

FANTASTIC VACATION HOUSE FOR A SUN FILLED WEEK!

  • 5 of 5
Emerald Surf is a wonderfully decorated, comfortable home in a great location on Anna Maria. Well appointed so you don't have to bring a thing...just your bathing suit. The pool is amazing! Our 2 year old loved playing on the shallow "shelf"! It was perfect. My mother-in-law even got in...and she hasn't been in a pool in more than 30 years!!!The beach is just 2.5 blocks away, but don't stress about the walk cause they have equipped the house with a great rolling beach carrier that totes all the beach chairs, towels, coolers...even the kids! This house has everything, even coolers, beach bags, and beach toys. Ramona was super excellent to work with and made the rental process super easy. I will definitely book this house again!

CLEAN AND WELL MAINTAINED

  • 3 of 5
The property was clean and well maintained. Close to the beach and restaurant area of Anna Maria Beach. There was a home under construction next door which was very noisy every day though. I feel we should have been told about that.

FANTASTIC PLACE. JUST LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5
My family of four stayed at Emerald Surf over Thanksgiving and had a fabulous time. The house is beautifully decorated and has everything you could need for a family vacation or a romantic get away. The pool is charming and we loved being directly on the canal so we could hop in our kayaks and head out for a day of fishing and paddling directly from the back yard dock. On top of that, it was less than a 5 minute walk to the most beautiful beach in the world!

The owner thought of everything for a fantastic vacation down to the beach towels and great beach chairs. Delightfully clean, beds are super comfy and the kitchen is well appointed. I highly recommend Emerald Surf.

We will definitely be back!
