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. Inside, our home has recently been meticulously and professionally renovated from top to bottom.

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

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.

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!

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
Surf's Up is a perfect vacation spot. We loved it and our only reservation in giving it a good review is that it might be more difficult to book another stay!
Located at the north (and quieter) end of the island, this beautiful home is a short walk to the Gulf beaches, the bayfront, fishing piers and Pine Island shops. It's a short drive to Holmes and Bradenton Beach for a broader selection of restaurants and shops. But the house is so lovely that you may not want to leave. The owners have renovated the house to a state of perfection. The kitchen is spacious and well-appointed, the living room is very comfortable with cable TV and wifi for your use and each of the two bedrooms has comfortable beds and cable TV. Out back, you'll find a lush, private oasis that we found more pleasant than sitting on the beach. The pool was great for a quick dip to cool off and we made use of it several evenings. But if you want the beach, the owners have provided a nice array of chairs, umbrellas, beach toys, coolers and the means to get everything to the sand.
Booking the house, making payments and getting into the house when we arrived were completely hassle free. The owners have thought of every detail.

PARADISE AT ITS BEST!

  • 5 of 5
This home is beautifully decorated and well maintained. Surrounded with mature tropical plants, the pool area gives you the feeling you are in your very own private tropical paradise! The screened in porch is a delightful area for morning coffee and the master bed and linens provided a very comfortable night's rest. The owners are fantastic and easy to get in touch with, if needed. The location is great, only a short walk brings you to the beach, pier, shops, or restaurants. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. We definitely plan to return and highly recommend this home on AMI as an excellent choice for a fabulous vacation. Surf's up is the perfect place...paradise at its best!

WONDERFUL HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our week-long stay at Surf's Up, and we enjoyed every minute of our vacation in this lovely home. It was so well appointed and nicely decorated but was in no way hazardous or concerning for our two year old daughter. The home was very clean and so thoughtfully outfitted, that we really didn't need a thing - we just supplied ourselves with some basic food necessities and everything else, right down to surplus linens, grilling equipment, and beach toys, had been provided by Scott and Joda. The house is a simple, short (two blocks at most) walk to the lovely, white sandy beaches on AMI and we even planned a brief excursion over to Disney World for an overnight stay -- it was only about 2 hours away for those of you coming to AMI with kids who may also want to make the trip. Overall, we would highly recommend Surf's Up to our family and friends - and, in fact, we already have! Thanks for a wonderful home away from home for our much-needed vacation!

END OF THE HUNT....

  • 5 of 5
This is a house you will want to return to time after time.... but please, leave a time slot open for me! The location is perfect ... easy walk to the beach ... a short bike ride to restaurants.... or a great spot to catch up on the latest book. The listing photos are accurate but a photo can't quite relay the perfection and the relaxed comfort. When we
ventured out for a meal we discovered terrific meals and friendly people. Be sure to visit "Eat Here", Ginny & Jane's at the Old IGA, and be sure to search out the Island Gourmet. Cortez is an easy drive for fresh off the boat seafood in a flip-flop setting. While we were there the weather was not ideal ... and we didn't even care! Anna Maria is super!

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
