Why Nancy McAleer or Terri Mason chose Anna Maria Island

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 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!

Perfect week at Sirenia by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year coming to Sirenia by the Sea. The house is awesome, there were 7 adults and 5 children and we had plenty of room!!! Everyone had their own space, the grandkids loved having their own room next to' the master with us ( plus the closet was big and their dolls also had a room!!) two living areas make it so nice especially when the kids want to watch their tv shows or play alone! The house is equipped with everything you could possibly need plus more!! Two refrigerators and two washer and dryers were great! When we were not at the beach (which is a very short walk) we were in the pool and after the kids in bed the sauna!!! We brought our boat so having a place to keep it was great!!! I can't say enough about this wonderful house and the owners!! No one wanted to go home and we are already planning to come back next year!!!

Perfect vacation home for large family vacations

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect house and location. Ownership is wonderful, caring and responsive. The extras are second to none, 2 refrigerator/ freezers 2 washers and dryers, large parking area, finished garage as a bonus room with ping pong table and fishing and beach supplies. My family is so impressed with Sernia By the Sea, we've stayed twice and have already booked our 3rd week. You do not do that if anything is wrong, the proof is in the action!

Sirenia by the Sea- a great family experience

  • 5 of 5

After reading all the reviews prior to booking, it was difficult to believe all the glowing comments from previous guests. Nevertheless, the comments were quite accurate making any new comments difficult to come by. Our family of 10 including 2 young grandchildren needed the space provided by the vacation home which was highlighted by the two separate living room areas and five bedrooms. The pool was the other amenity that we loved. The owners have provided the guests with the small things that make the vacation great. Items like beach towels, beach buggy and umbrellas, pool and beach toys and fishing poles. Anna Maria island is an excellent area and our second visit providing good restaurants if you choose to dine out. It's only negative is the weekend traffic, but bikes and golf carts are available. This place definitely requires a return visit.

A Dream House

  • 5 of 5

Although we didn't have optimum Florida weather, this house more than made up for it. It had every amenity that you could ask for and was so spacious that even though there were 9 of us, we all had plenty of room and privacy. I would absolutely stay here again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this house to anyone looking for a great vacation spot.

Not to be overlooked, we had a few great meals at The Sand Bar the the little shops on Pine St. keep us busy during any cloud bursts.

Owner's Response: We are tickled pink that you had a fabulous vacation at Sirenia Cove. We really try to ensure that we have everything you could want or need to make your vacation stress free. I hope you hit "Island Cabana" on Pine Avenue, it's my favourite shop for women's clothing! Tide & Moon Jewelry is another fave and AMI Outfitters for the guys. We hope you return to us with sunnier skies in your forecast! Kind Regards, Nancy & Terri

Wow, where to start... Sirenia by the Sea is awesome!

The house is perfect for a large group; we had 12, and never once felt cramped. The colors are bright and airy, the kitchen is HUGE, and the pool/spa area is great. We stayed in the upstairs master bedroom, and felt like we were in a 5-star hotel. We used the pool area every day, even the days when the weather wasn't the greatest. I'd start each day with a walk down to the canal to see what the tides had brought in.

There are two living areas, each with a large flat-screen TV and comfortable couch/chair. One is just off the kitchen, and that area became our central gathering spot. The second living room area is toward the front of the house, and provided a place to enjoy the serenity of the location.

There is also a game room of sorts, with a ping-pong table; we had a family-wide tournament over the course of a couple of days. Included are a wagon and beach chairs, towels, and some beach toys. The weather was a bit on the cool side the first half of our stay, so we didn't get to the beach as much as we'd hoped, but we had two really great days.

The location is superb. The house is close to the main drag, yet far enough away where there isn't any traffic noise. It's only a block or so from the beautiful white sand beach, and if you rent a bike, you can get to any part of the city in minutes. We rented a golf cart, which are legal to drive on the city streets.

The owners, Terri and Nancy, were always quick with a response to any questions we had, and offered us suggestions on places to rent and places to eat. We've stayed at VRBO properties before, and never had owners who were so helpful.

We ate out way too much, which was weird because the kitchen is so well-appointed. I'd definitely plan to visit both piers; there are restaurants at the end of each, and we had great seafood there. We also ate twice at the Sandbar, went to Ginny and Jane E's 3-4 times for caramel rolls, and had hand-decorated donuts from the Donut Experiment. We rented our golf cart and bikes from Beach Bums rental and had a good experience.

The best recommendation I can give is that we're hoping to stay at Sirenia by the Sea again - if we can work out the schedules of a dozen people!

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.
