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 Island

We think you’ll agree that this is a simply great find! We encourage you to read the reviews of Surf's Up from our previous guests. 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

Completely and lovingly renovated in 2012. It is perfect for a small family, couples young and young at heart! An ideal destination for your honeymoon in Florida's Wedding Capital too! We are particularly focused on keeping Surf's Up immaculately clean and comfortable.

Yet another fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

Another great stay at Surf's Up for us - this was number three! Scott and Joda have made this the perfect vacation house.

We went to the beach most days (beach cart is very welcome, as are the chairs and sun umbrella) and hired bikes from Beach Bums to explore the island. Great meals at Waterfront, Eat Here and Dry Dock to name a few. And perfect weather - yet another fantastic vacation!

Many thanks Scott and Joda!!

Paradise in Anna Maria!

  • 5 of 5

We had a magical 3 weeks at Surf's Up. It felt like home the minute we stepped into this perfect little cottage. The furnishings were so pretty and bright, and very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware and dishes. We loved the intimate pool area with all the beautiful bamboo trees providing shade and privacy. This truely was the perfect pick for us. The location was the best, at the quiet North end of the island, but within walking distance to shops and restaurants. Thank you Scott and Jody for sharing your lovely piece of paradise with us!

Beautifully well maintained

  • 5 of 5

Scott and Joda have done everything possible to make this property fabulous, down to the nice cookware in the kitchen. The location near the beach is ideal; if you need anything as a renter, Scott or Joda get back to you immediately and are great to work with. Don't miss this place!

Absolutely wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely beach home was absolutely wonderful! From the beautiful beachy decor, to all the high end finishes with attention to every detail. It's even better than the photos depict. We instantly felt at home in this beach house and plan to return. The location is perfect - short walks to the gulf side beach, the stunning Bean Point, and the Rod and Reel Pier. We enjoyed dining and reading in the lushly landscaped back yard. So peaceful and relaxing:) Thank you, Scott and Joda, for thinking of everything!

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 beaches, 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 (1 hour) and Sarasota (45 mins) 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, Rod & Reel Pier, and Poppo's Tacos in Anna Maria. Ginny & Jane E's and Peaches are great places for breakfast and lunch. It's about a 30-45 minute drive to Sarasota, depending on the time of year. Tampa is a little over an hour. St. Petersburg is about 45-50 minutes away.

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