Enjoy the quiet and comfort of EMERALD SURF on the North end of Anna Maria Island. This enchanting three bedroom / two bath ranch style home is located on a quiet street and less than a 5 minute walk to Gulf Beach. Ranch style construction means easy access to and from the house with no steps to climb. The kitchen is completely equipped with dishwasher, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, blender, and all the conveniences of a modern well equipped kitchen. The dining room opens to the lanai screened enclosure. The new in ground pool provides an amazing outdoor extension from the lanai and the elegant interior. The pool can be heated at an additional cost. Just let us know your preference. Backyard is surrounded by a privacy fence.


There is a grilling patio just outside the lanai enclosure to provide our guests with the flexibility to enjoy the grounds while grilling the fresh catch (or steak) of your choice. The patio includes comfortable seating/sunbathing chairs. While smoking is strictly prohibited in our home, you may feel free to smoke outside on the patio.

The master bedroom contains a king size bed, full chest of drawers for your clothes, large closet, its own ceiling fan, 42” Plasma HDTV, telephone. This bedroom includes a bathroom and has a single sink, walk in shower, commode, hairdryer.

The second bedroom has two twin size beds, full chest of drawers for clothes, closet, and 32” TV.

The third bedroom has a queen size bed, full chest of drawers for clothes, closet, and 32” TV.

Our family room, which is connected to the dining room, is used for relaxing, internet access, and enjoying the entertainment system. It contains a sofa, comfortable chairs, along with a DVD player, and 55” LCD HDTV. Movies can be rented at the local Publix grocery store. Free high speed cable internet service is provided during your stay. Just bring your laptop or tablet and hook up. The telephone allows for free calling within the continental United States.

We have tried to provide you with everything you need to make your vacation a memorable one. You’ll find games for the kids, beach chairs, beach cart to pull to the beach, toys, pool noodles, beach towels, all linens, hand soap, and a whole lot more. You will find it easy to rent items on the island, like, bikes, boats, kayaks, beach supplies, baby supplies, or a golf cart. Upon your arrival, you will find a binder in our home that includes information on the island, restaurant’s, things to do, how to rent items, local attractions, etc.

Best of all we’re located within walking distance to almost anything you may want to do or may need, and if you want to go further, we are only two blocks from the FREE ANNA MARIA TROLLEY STOP, corner of
Willow and Gulf. Historic Pine Avenue is a short 3 block walk that has quaint shops, cafes, restaurants, including the General Store, Ginny's and Jane E’s where you can browse the gift shop or sit down with locals in the café. Grocery shopping couldn’t be more convenient with the Publix store being only 3 miles away (which can be reached via the trolley).

Family Circle Magazine, May/2012 Issue, page 90, article, 'The Best of Florida' boasts about Anna Maria's NO high-rises, NO big-chain hotels or NO fast-food restaurants-just vintage bungalows, small-scale condos and mom-and-pop shops. Ditch the car and ride your bike to the bay and Gulf beaches. Please consider our adorable beach home, SAPPHIRE SURF, as your destination choice.

Our goal is simple: We provide a high quality rental experience at a fair price. Contact us for availability.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About the owner: My family and I live in Austin Texas. Growing up in New Jersey, I enjoyed spending time at the 'Jersey Shore' with my friends and family. I believe this is one reason why I wanted to own a home near the beach. I'm an avid quilter, which occupies the majority of my time as my children are now grown.

                      Why the Owner Chose Anna Maria:
                      In 2011 we purchased our first home on Anna Maria (called Sapphire Surf). We have enjoyed renting the home so we chose to purchase another home. What drew me to Anna Maria is the slow pace of life, great beaches, friendly people and simple life it offers.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Some of the unique benefits we enjoy while at the property are: Short walk to the beach, having a home on a canal, walking the beach looking for sea shells, sunsets (and sunrise), ice cream store around the corner, eating at Sunsets, Rod & Real, City Pier, and riding a bike to explore the island.
