Simply amazing! - We had a fabulous, relaxing week at Anna Maria Island! This house is so cute! It's very nicely decorated and clean. All accommodations were fantastic for our family of 4! We would love to return to AMI and Surf's Up for our next vacation. Bean Point beach and water were perfect; we spent our days at the beach; found sand dollars, a huge sea star, and a hermit crab; saw 2 huge traveling fevers of stingrays; and swam with 2 manatees that stopped at our beach! Until next time AMI!

Surfs up cottage is lovely - What a wonderful place. This cute 2 bedroom 2 bath cottage is so welcoming and comfortable. Quiet northern end of the island just a short walk to beautiful sugar sand beaches. Pool and backyard oasis very relaxing. Screened in porch was nice. Kitchen has everything you need. It was great to have Beach chairs and towels available for our use . Beds very comfortable. Property manager Ellie Was great to work with. We received a tote with soaps, extra TP and paper towel, laundry detergent and dish detergent which was much appreciated . We will definitely be visiting AMI again. Truly a wonderful and relaxing experience staying at the Surfs up Cottage while vacationing in AMI.

Surf's Up on AMI - Our Happy Place - This was our second stay at this great little house only three blocks from the beach. Everything in the home was delightful and top-notch--true to the pictures. The kitchen has everything you need (although we didn't spend much time cooking); the furnishings are upscale with such a welcoming beach flair; lots of beach towels, beach chairs, floats, and a cart to tote it all to the beach; the pool, though small, provided a refreshing break out of the afternoon sun (lots of beautiful palms in the backyard giving welcome shade); and our favorite -- a short four-block walk or bike ride to Rod & Reel Pier for killer sunsets and $1.50 AmberBock beers on tap! Surf's Up is so close to everything you'd want to do on the north end of the island. Ellie, the property manager, gave prompt responses to any question/comment we had before and during our stay. The condition of the house was exactly as advertised. It's the perfect house for one or two couples or a small family. I know we will be back and hopefully, Surf's Up won't be booked up!

Peaceful paradise - My husband & I loved staying at this lovely house...being one level made for easy living, the lovely decor is just like the photos....I especially enjoyed the sun porch. The north end is much quieter than other areas of AMI we’ve stayed previously. Everything was well stocked, very clean, the pool was smaller but perfect for our needs. The beach (Bean Point) is beautiful at the north end. The management was very efficient...we had a couple of questions and our calls were answered promptly. I would recommend this charming home to anyone looking for the real island feel ??

Memorable vacation. - Great location and very well maintained. Every amenity we needed was there. We loved the private pool patio and landscaping. The home was spotlessly clean.

Charming small house with easy walks to beaches - We spent a wonderful month at this nice house on the north end of the island. You can easily walk to beaches located on either side of the island. It’s located on a nice quiet neighborhood yet within 10 mins walking distance shops and restaurants on Pine Ave. We enjoyed the peaceful and relaxing lanai and the pool area. We spent our afternoons in the lanai reading. House is well equipped, it has everything you need for a great vacation, nicely furnished, and has all the beach gear you need. Ellie was a great property manager. We’ve rented houses from her before and she’s always very helpful, attentive, and quick to respond. We liked the house so much we decided to come back next year. We’ve enjoyed so many wonderful sunsets and sunrises. We were also very lucky with the weather, 75-80 deg temps clear sunny days almost everyday. We had to use the A/C in the afternoons quite often because of the heat/humidity , which worked very well. All and all we had a great time.

Best Vacation Home We Have Ever Rented! Located near the northern end of the island on a quiet street, it is a quick walk to Bean Point, the Bay and the Gulf side. It was also a short bike ride to all the little shops and restaurants. The house is spotlessly clean and so wonderfully decorated! It was also well appointed with everything you could possibly need during your stay, from the beautiful beach towels in a basket at the door, to all the kitchen gadgets any cook would want, and everything you need for a day at the beach. The backyard was like a private oasis with the landscaping and the perfect little jetted pool. The owners have truly thought of everything.This house will always be our first choice on Anna Maria Island.
