Anna Maria house description

Enjoy the quiet and comfort of SAPPHIRE SURF on the North End of Anna Maria Island. This enchanting two bedroom/two bath ranch style home is located on a quiet street and less than a 4 minute walk to The Gulf of Mexico beach. Ranch style construction means easy access to and from the house with no steps to climb. The newly remodeled kitchen has granite countertops and 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 yard is surrounded by a privacy fence.

The patio around the new pool is professionally landscaped. 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 and an outdoor hot/cold shower. 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, alarm clock. A bathroom is next to the bedroom and has a single sink, walk in shower, toilet, hairdryer, make-up magnifiying mirror, and weight scale.

The second bedroom has two queen-size beds, full chest of drawers for clothes, large walk-in closet, 32” TV, and alarm clock. This en suite bedroom has a tub/shower, toilet, and single sink.

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, three comfortable chairs, along with a DVD player, and 42” LCD HDTV. Movies can be rented at the local Publix grocery store Redbox machine. We offer a free DVD “Marmaduke” the kids will enjoy. 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, 5 beach chairs, beach toys, pool floats, beach towels, beach cart, all linens, hand soap, toilet paper, 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, trolley schedule, 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 one block from the FREE ANNA MARIA TROLLEY STOP. Historic Pine Avenue is a short 4 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: 2011

              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 childern are now grown.

              Why the Owner Chose Anna Maria:
              Two years ago, my friend who owns a home on Anna Maria Island invited me to spend time with her. I fell in love with the island from the first day. I went back with her one year later and started looking for a home for my family. Late 2011, we purchased Sapphire Surf for our enjoyement and people who want to rent it from us. 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, 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.
