This gorgeous 2 bedroom/2 bath home is located in an absolutely perfect location in the most desirable NORTH END area of Anna Maria. It has been completely and lovingly remodeled from top to bottom and is awaiting your visit. Surf’s Up is a short, one block walk from the pristine, white gulf beaches, where you can relax, walk Anna Maria’s 7 miles of beautiful beaches, and enjoy the spectacular Gulf sunsets. Pine Avenue shopping, great local restaurants and the historic Anna Maria Pier area are all within easy walking distance.

The secluded backyard is tropically landscaped and home to a heated Jacuzzi style pool, reminiscent of a natural hot spring! A grill area and lounging patio await you, conveniently adjoined to the cozy screened in porch perfect for relaxing and entertaining. Inside, our home has recently been meticulously and professionally renovated from top to bottom. A beautiful large family room with plenty of space to stretch out and relax or entertain is adjoined by a spacious dining area with an open plan modern kitchen. A chef's kitchen with all the accoutrements you will need to create lasting memories. This full size kitchen can meet the needs of your party; it has upgraded cabinetry and appliances and premiere cookware which will respond to the inner foodie in you. After a day of fun in the sun you will sink into one of two fabulous bedrooms. The master has a king size bed with an in-suite bathroom.

                  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 beach, 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 (45 min.) and Sarasota (30 min.) 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 & Sign of the Mermaid in Anna Maria. Peaches is a great place for breakfast, and Ginny and Jane's for breakfast and lunch. It's about a 30-45 minute drive to Sarasota.

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

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About: 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!

                  Why Anna Maria:
                  We think you’ll agree that this is a simply great find! 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.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Our home is brand new! Completely and lovingly renovated in 2012. It is perfect for a family, couples young and young at heart! An ideal destination for your honeymoon in Florida's Wedding Capital too!
