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 Island

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.

Owner's Response: We enjoyed having you, and thank you for taking such good care of the property. I hope that you will come again, and maybe this time there will be fewer rainy days. Sometimes a rainy day here and there makes things better....meaning that it gives you pause to enjoy just the simply things like a good book and a log refreshing nap.

AMI Sublime Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is my second stay at Sea Gull Way with my family. It's simply perfect. It is easy walking distance to the beach which my children and grandchildren love. You are away from the bustle and traffic of Pine St yet close enough to walk to any of the shops.

Steve responds quickly to any questions about the house and knows the area very well relative to restaurants, grocery shopping etc . Don't underestimate how helpful this is to your stay.

There are beach toys for the children and bikes for adults to ride around the island.

The house has plenty of room and is well stocked with whatever you need whether it be making margaritas or grilling steaks.

I highly recommend this property for people looking for a great property to rent.

Owner's Response: It was good to have you back for your second stay, and I hope you will stay with us again. I hope that you had a chance to eat at Ocean Star. Simply the best shrimp tempura I ever had! And what's better, is it is less than a five minute walk from the house. Sorry that I didn't get the chance to meet you, however I need get to meet your daughter. Very nice young lady. Thank you for the care given to the property. I hope to see you again next March or sooner, if the urge hits you. Kindest regards.

Wonderful Family Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

Our thanks to Steve for sharing his wonderful home on Bimini Bay for our family Christmas gathering. We couldn’t have asked for a better time - the weather was perfect for us from the cold north and the home suited our family perfectly. The upper levels of the 3 story home offered spectacular views of the bay and the nesting Great Blue Herons. We certainly appreciated the way it was it set up for renters. The kitchen was incredibly complete and we enjoyed working on meals together and then setting up buffets on the island. Grilling the turkey for Christmas dinner was a delicious option. So glad this was possible. We only went out to eat for one dinner. The dock and the screened in porch were great places to gather for drinks, talk, and relaxing! It was such a welcoming home that we often became homebodies, though we did enjoy exploring Anna Maria Island on the beaches and out on the water in kayaks. The elevator was a wonderful benefit because of some recent knee replacements. We know that we will want to return for another family gathering in the future. Next time we will be sure to do some fishing off the dock!

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a nice review. I certainly enjoyed having you, and enjoyed meeting you, your family and friends. I am happy that you enjoyed your visit, and I appreciate very much the care that you gave the property. You were the perfect quest! With the weather in the 80's for most of your stay it may not have seemed much like the Christmases spent up north, but that's the idea isn't it. I do hope that you can find an opportunity to visit again. It was a pleasure having you! Good wishes for a wonderful New Year! Steve

First Time to AMI ....

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home!!! Exactly as pictured on a private secluded street!! We had a great time with plenty of room for everyone! We had fun catching fish from the dock behind the house and taking in the views of the bay, both from the dock and from our private balconies. The beaches are stunning, as are the views of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge from the bay side of the island! We have been traveling to the area for years, but never to Anna Maria Island. We are glad we decided to try someplace different! Steve, the property owner, is absolutely wonderful to work with! He goes out of his way to make sure your stay is the best it can possibly be!!! Do not hesitate to rent this home!

Owner's Response: I'm happy that you enjoyed your visit.....When I cruised by with my friend in his boat headed to a good fishing spot we know, seeing you fishing from my dock, and holding up a stringer of fish with a big smile, I knew that you guys were enjoying yourselves! It's very quiet there, with very little auto traffic and almost no boat traffic. Peaceful....which is what I look for when on vacation. ...a few steps to the Tampa Bay beaches, and you are right, the views of the Bay and of the Skyway Bridge at night are beautiful. It's always great to have such nice visitors. Thank you for the care given the property during your stay. I hope you will consider our home again on your next visit to the island.

Great location for boat owners

  • 4 of 5

Loved our stay here. The house was very clean. It was off the beaten path somewhat which was great for us. We rented a golf cart to run around the island. Had great views of the yachts in the marina and we were able to dock our boat on the nice boat dock right outside the house! Will definitely stay here again!

What can I say. Our stay was perfect. The location, the dock and availability of great fishing and beaches was just what we wanted. As if that was not enough the dining within 5 minutes of the house was excellent . Renting was easy and the house was just what we expected, maybe better. I would highly recommend this house especially to a boat owner. This is probably the best location on the island for for someone bringing their own boat. Great bay access and room for your trailer to. I hope to get back here in the future.
