This gorgeous 2 bedroom/2 bath home is located in an absolutely perfect location in the most desirable NORTH END area of Anna Maria. It has been completely and lovingly remodeled from top to bottom and is awaiting your visit. Surf’s Up is a short, one block walk from the pristine, white gulf beaches, where you can relax, walk Anna Maria’s 7 miles of beautiful beaches, and enjoy the spectacular Gulf sunsets. Pine Avenue shopping, great local restaurants and the historic Anna Maria Pier area are all within easy walking distance.

The secluded backyard is tropically landscaped and home to a heated Jacuzzi style pool, reminiscent of a natural hot spring! A grill area and lounging patio await you, conveniently adjoined to the cozy screened in porch perfect for relaxing and entertaining.

This full size kitchen can meet the needs of your party; it has upgraded cabinetry and appliances and premiere cookware which will respond to the inner foodie in you. After a day of fun in the sun you will sink into one of two fabulous bedrooms. The master has a king size bed with an in-suite bathroom.

About Scott and Joda

Our Story

Surf’s Up! Is our little Florida dream come true. After years of searching for the right warm weather spot we discovered Anna Maria Island, a true “Old Florida” town with fantastic beaches, incredibly friendly people, great restaurants and shopping, and the type of ambiance we had long been trying to find. Our home, located in the coveted North End section of the island, is just a short walk to the beaches, restaurants, shopping, and all the other amenities that the wonderful spot has to offer. We have lovingly restored every inch of this gem, adding a tropical secluded paradise in the backyard, complete with a Jacuzzi style pool that is fun for relaxing and entertaining. Our goal is not just to provide a rental spot for you, but rather a home away from home that you’ll want to come back to year after year. We have found nothing to be better than spending a day relaxing or walking on Anna Maria’s pristine, white beaches and then retreating to our screened in porch area or the pool, soaking in the sun, enjoying the casual company of family and friends, followed by a short stroll to take in one of the gulf’s spectacular, breath-taking Gulf sunsets. Life doesn’t get any better than that!

Scott and Joda purchased this house in 2012

Why Scott and Joda chose Anna Maria

We think you’ll agree that this is a simply great find! Anna Maria is very accessible to both Tampa and Sarasota. But once you’re there, you might never leave the little town of Anna Maria as you decompress and take in all the island has to offer. We love to walk and bike all around the island. It’s a quiet, easy walk or bike anywhere on the island, and there is easy access to just about anything you’d like to do. There are plenty of choices for dining and entertainment right in Anna Maria. About the only time we get in our car is if we want to enjoy a meal at one of the restaurants that are within a 5 to 10 minute drive in the evening or if we want to explore a bit more of what the entire area has to offer. We hope you enjoy your stay in our home as much as we do. Our name, Surf’s Up has been used in our family for generations meaning life’s good, enjoy it! We hope you’ll feel free to call us if you have any questions (best number is 703-819-7559), as we love nothing more than to talk about and provide information on our little piece of paradise.

What makes this house unique

Our home is brand new! Completely and lovingly renovated in 2012. It is perfect for a family, couples young and young at heart! An ideal destination for your honeymoon in Florida's Wedding Capital too!

This is 5* accomodation

  • 5 of 5
Surf's Up is everything we wanted from luxurious, peaceful holiday accommodation on AMI. The fixtures and fittings are superb. The proximity to the beach is ideal as is all the equipment supplied to make the beach fun and comfortable. After many years of renting in the area, this is definitely the best accommodation we have stayed in on the Gulf Coast (....and we are picky!!). Highly recommended.

Picture Perfect! Beautiful cottage ... very comfortable and charming!

  • 5 of 5
This review is long overdue as we had the pleasure of staying in this lovely cottage back in May 2014. We just returned from our second trip to Anna Maria last week and unfortunately Surf's Up was already rented so we selected another property. While this property was nice, I can promise you it did not deliver the same quality, cleanliness and comfortable feeling that we experienced at Surf's Up ... which is what compelled me to sit down and write this long overdue review! If you are looking for a cottage on Anna Maria, STOP, book this property now because it will not be available later! The minute we opened the door and walked into this home, I sighed with relief because it was not only exactly as pictured on the website ... it was better! Everything about this home is first class. You will want for nothing ... it has all been provided. The kitchen is beautiful and stocked with everything you will need. The linens and towels are soft and plush. The beach towels are 'big' ... no skimpy towels here! The bed was so comfortable. They provided beach cart, chairs, and umbrella. My favorite place was the screened back porch and we loved the pool. The evenings in May get cool, so we kicked up the heat and jets and it felt just like a hot tub! The owner's are great to work with and very responsive. They genuinely care that you enjoy their property and your vacation. So, don't miss the boat like we just did ... book this property now ... you will not be disappointed! Thank you Scott and Joda for opening up your beautiful home so that we can enjoy this lovely paradise on Anna Maria!

Most Charming Ever! :)

  • 5 of 5
Surf's Up, without a doubt, is the most accommodating and charming place we've stayed! My husband and I both just loved everything about it. Scott and Joda went the extra mile in making sure our stay was just perfect--and it was! The cottage was very clean, neat, very accommodating, and so charmingly decorated! We loved the nice hardwood floors, the screened in back porch, and, most of all, that amazing swimming pool! Every morning I would get out in it to do water exercises. It was so nice that some bottled waters were left for us in the closet. (First time that has ever happened on a trip!) You will just love Surf's Up, and I highly recommend it! :) Thanks, Scott and Joda, for a wonderful stay at your lovely cottage, and thank you for sharing it with us. :) (BTW, be sure and take the short drive down to Longboat Key to eat at the DryDock Restaurant.... it was absolutely the BEST! Look it up online, but be sure and either get there very early or get reservations.)

2nd Year In a Row!

  • 5 of 5
My Wife, Daughter, and I were very excited when we had a chance to return to Anna Maria Island. We were even more excited when Surf's Up! was available again. The house is extremely nice and in a great location. Our daughter is 3 and loves the pool! She went swimming without her floatie for the first time this year! It's a very peaceful experience and the owners have thought of just about everything. We love Surf's Up! and hope to return again soon!

It's heartwarming to us when we hear stories such as the one you relayed about your daughter and how much she loves the pool! Thanks again, and we do hope you'll return for a third visit soon!

Family friendly escape!

  • 5 of 5
We had the best first trip to Anna Maria! This home is loved...you can feel it. Our two small children and their totally relaxed parents enjoyed every dip in the pool, card game on the porch, and short stroll to the best beach sunsets we've ever seen. Thank you thank you!! We had everything we needed and more. :)

Owner's Response: Katherine and family- We are just thrilled to hear that you and the children loved being at Surf's Up. Our four grown children were home this weekend and said how they can not wait to go back to Anna Maria for game night and hanging out in the little pool. There is nothing better than slowing down and enjoying all the small pleasures of life. Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review. Come back to the island when you can. All the best- Scott and Joda

Surf's Up is ideally located on the desirable northern tip of Anna Maria Island. A slice of old Florida, with seven miles of sugary white sand beach, voted one of the 'Best Islands in the USA'. It showcases a tropical landscape with crystal clear waters reminiscent of the Caribbean. Anna Maria is a treasure found on Florida's Southwest Gulf Coast conveniently located between Tampa (45 min.) and Sarasota (30 min.) it is also only about 2 hours from Orlando. You'll be surrounded by warm Gulf waters; Surf's Up is located steps to the Gulf of Mexico beach and a few blocks to Pine Ave - the greenest main street in America. Anna Maria is fast becoming a hot spot for gastronomic delights. Feel free to take a walk or catch the free local Trolley to local restaurants or attractions. Some of our favorite restaurants are: Eat Here in Holmes Beach; The Waterfront Restaurant, Sandbar & Sign of the Mermaid in Anna Maria. Peaches is a great place for breakfast, and Ginny and Jane's for breakfast and lunch. It's about a 30-45 minute drive to Sarasota.

Other Activities: Zoo/Marine/Wildlife Park, boating, basketball court, Health Spa, Parasailing, Miniature Golf
