About Nancy McAleer or Terri Mason

We are 2 close families that decided to take the plunge into Paradise together. Here we are pictured with the Stanley Cup during the NHL Playoffs! We know... not much of a Beach Life photo, but nonetheless the only one we had with all of us in it.

Terri Mason has vast experience in the resort industry with companies such as ClubMed. Nancy McAleer, a former director with a major clothing retailer, certified facilitator and vacation rental consultant will be happy to help you reserve and plan your perfect vacation.

Nancy and Terri's family purchased this house to add to their vacation rental offerings in 2013

Why Nancy McAleer or Terri Mason chose Anna Maria

After much research we decided to vacation on Anna Maria in January 2011 to look for a beach house. We fell in love with the beautiful beach, great restaurants, boating and the Islanders themselves. Our favourite activity is to rent a boat and go shelling & snorkelling on a private Island. For us Canadians, the Island is easy to get to from the Tampa or St. Petersburg airports. We have young families and love that the Island is very close to Disney and Busch Gardens as well as the major sporting events in nearby Tampa. We love the fact that Anna Maria is extremely laid back and safe. Sirenia By The Sea is our second out of three properties on the island and as our past guests have told us 'we do it right!' providing our guests with every comfort needed for a stress free vacation.

What makes this house unique

Sirenia By The Sea's greatest benefit is it's location! It's the closest 5 bedroom, deep water front, canal front home to the Gulf of Mexico. We are boat loving families that find the best way to enjoy Anna Maria is through water sports and of course boating throughout Anna Maria Sound and the Gulf. By having a large home that fits our extended family, we can share vacation time with the grandparents and the kids! The beach is a short stroll eleven houses down (1 block) and the free trolley located 3 doors down is perfect for an easy trip to the ice cream shop or the pier to see what the fishermen are catching.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a beautiful place you have on Anna Maria Island. The eight of us - friends for almost 50 years - thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We have also vacationed together and with our families for almost as long as our friendship and rated your home #1 on our list.

We have stayed on Sanibel Island and Siesta Key.... both on the beach which were very nice, but Sirenia By The Sea was #1.

We especially loved:

the colorful and tasteful decor

the private pool and restful area surrounding it

the kitchen which was extremely well equipped.

the two refrigerators

the laundry room

the keyless front door so we didn't have to worry about keys

private bathrooms for each couple

We rode the trolley often and appreciated the short walk to the stop.

So glad we found you on the internet!

Beautiful and spacious home

  • 5 of 5

Second time staying at one of Nancy and Terri's homes. Stayed at Sirenia Cove last year, and Sirenia by the Sea this year. Nancy and Terri are great to work with. Their homes are very nice... decorated well, up to date, great locations, etc. This house in particular is HUGE with 2 massive master bedrooms. My wife and I rented the house with our 2 kids and each of our mothers and everyone had there own space/bedroom/bathroom/etc. I really can't say enough good things about it. We are already looking forward to returning to AMI, and as long as Nancy and Terri's homes are available on those dates my family will be staying there!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Matthew and Katie, for this glowing review! We love having you guys back year after year. Sirenia By The Sea is massive with a great layout for privacy. When we bought the home my husband kept forgetting where the Queen Bedroom and Bathroom were. LOL We'll see you next year and thanks again for such a lovely review! Hugs, Nancy

Amazing Home away from Home !

  • 5 of 5

The minute we walked through the front door, the six of us were smiling and feeling giddy! We loved this home! Terri and Nancy were awesome to work with the weeks before we arrived. Sirenia By The Sea was so comfortable and welcoming. Absolutely loved the beachy decor and all the amenities. The back yard oasis was unbelieveable. We all enjoyed our coffee every morning out by the bay inlet. We hung out daily in the warm watered pool. The kitchen was totally stocked with all the appliances and things we needed! The beach was a short block and a half walk away. Location really was perfect for walking to some shops and restaurants and if you wanted to go even further, then the free trolley stop was just at the end of the street! We were 3 couples staying here and the bedrooms with en suite bathrooms were perfect for us! Did I say how cute this place was furnished?!?! LOVED IT!!! Will definitely be back and hopefully staying here or in one of the other residences the owners have available! Thanks and hugs to you, Nancy! I really enjoyed working with you on our vacation and celebration of my 35 wedding anniversary! Xoxoxo Beth W.

Beautiful home, beautiful area, great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home in a great location on AMI. This was our first time to AMI and we were taken back by the beautiful gulf waters and beautiful beaches that looked exactly like the pictures. After exploring the island a little, we felt we really were at the best location. The beach entrance on Oak Street was a short enjoyable walk down an uncrowded and pretty "Oak Street". The beach was beautiful and felt almost private to us and a few others that were enjoying it. We came in mid-August. AMI is beautiful no matter where you go, but I feel we had the perfect spot! The home was beautiful and cheerful; very spacious and comfortable. The pool and backyard area are just as pictured. We enjoyed the pool and the grill. Lots of fun was had! We appreciated having two washers and dryers as well! The ping pong table was another plus and lots of fun. This home had everything we needed from beach chairs and beach towels to kitchen items, etc etc. One week went by way too fast, but we had a wonderful time at Sirenia by the Sea, and Anna Maria Island is a quaint, quiet, beautiful island. We also saw manatees at our beach and followed them all the way to Beane Point. That was a thrill!

Owner's Response: Thank you so very much for your 5-star review of Sirenia By The Sea Kathleen. We are so happy you found the home to be exactly what was advertised. We pride ourselves on purchasing high-quality items that stand the test of time with salty outdoor living. We love the multiple outdoor seating and lounging areas that we've created for each guest to find a spot and enjoy the sunny, perfect weather that AMI is known for. Mid-August to the end of October are really quiet times to visit the island. It's still very hot, with less traffic on the island. I'd say you picked the perfect time to visit. I agree that one week is never enough, next time we'll have to have you back for two! Until then, all the best in 2017! Nancy

First of all Terry and Nancy were so accommodating and available. We absolutely loved our stay!!! This home was clean and comfy and equipped with all of the things you see in these pictures. Just pack your clothes and come. We had our boat, which was priority to us. Easy to launch and dock. The beds were comfy!!! We just loved it and will definitely do it again. Thank you Terri and Nancy!!!!!

We'd love to have you back anytime. All the best! Nancy

Sirenia By The Sea 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 & Cleanest Beaches in Florida'. It showcases a tropical landscape with crystal clear emerald 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 less than 2 hours from Orlando. You'll be surrounded by warm Gulf waters, Sirenia By The Sea is perched on a deep water canal leading to the Gulf (no bridges). You can take your pick of several beaches close by. The Gulf Beach is a 1 block walk and the Bay Beach and City Pier is 1 mile away.

While the beach is the main attraction to Anna Maria it 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. Shopping on Pine Ave is not to be missed, along with art galleries and the live theatre. There is a large community centre close by offering exercise classes and other events.
