About the property

Welcome to Surf Camp on Anna Maria Island. Completely remodeled in 2013, this duplex is comprised of two stunning beach homes close to the beach in a quiet residential neighborhood. The Surf Camp side includes a private heated pool (not shared), hot/cold outdoor shower, lush landscaping throughout and a grill for the back patio necessary for a great evening by the pool. In the garage, you will find a wagon and beach chairs for trips to the sugary white sand beach only three houses away where you can enjoy stunning sunsets every evening.

Inside the home you will find 2 bedrooms with sleeping for 5 in beds. Each bedroom is equipped with a wall mounted flat screen television with cable. WiFi is also available throughout the home. The master bedroom includes a king bed with a high quality mattress and wonderfully comfortable sheets to ensure you will receive a good night's rest and are ready to hit the beach in the morning. This room faces the pool area with an eight foot walkout slider so you can slip away in the morning and enjoy your coffee pool side. The guest bedroom faces the front of the home and has a queen bed with a lofted twin over top, allowing for two couples or a family with children to comfortably enjoy the property. This home includes one and a half bathes. The full bath includes a large countertop to ensure you space to spread out during your vacation and the half bath can be found by the front door for ease of use when coming back and forth to the beach or pool. Moving into the Kitchen, Dining and Living space you will find a fully equipped kitchen ready for you to cook, if you chose. The Kitchen includes many of the small appliances you would expect to find in your own home, plus table settings for 6. The island in the kitchen serves as the table to conserve space and includes 4 bar stools. The setup allows for easy conversation while preparing any snacks or meals. The living room is equipped with a large screen television, couch and chairs to relax after a long day at the beach or running around the island. From the living room you can view the pool through the slider door. Kick your feet up and relax after another day in paradise.

We hope you'll come visit us and enjoy all that Anna Maria Island has to offer. You will find that we own and manage all of the properties included in Lizzie Lu's Island Retreat which allows us to stay in tune with the properties needs and keep it looking fantastic for years to come. We look forward to hearing from you and hope you will make Lizzie Lu's your home away from home!

Surf Camp is a great place to stay. It is immediately obvious, the owners take great pride in keeping the property well kept. We had everything we could possible need including beach chairs and towels. It is decorated to give you a real beach cottage feel the minute you walk it. We found it comfortable and relaxing and the beach is only steps away. The heated pool and outdoor shower were really nice too. And let's not forget Surf Camp is on the beautiful Anna Maria Island.

I wanted to write a review about our experience with Lizzie Lu. When we arrived, the house was ready for us. It was spotless and looked EXACTLY as represented in the pictures. A couple hours later, we were greeted by Ben, making sure everything was as expected.

One thing I did note is that Lizzie Lu takes great pride in keeping up with their properties. Gardeners, pool attendants, and painters were busy working on neighboring properties. During our stay, the pool cleaner and gardener came, but I can say that they were not intrusive in any way.

The location was amazing. Turn left out of the front door, immediately turn left at the corner, and walk about four houses down the street to the beautiful beach. We took full advantage of the beach cart to haul chairs, umbrella, and a cooler to the beach every day. After returning from the beach, the pool was the perfect way to wrap up the afternoon.

My three adult children and I had a wonderful visit at the Surf Camp property, and we plan to definitely return in the future.

Thanks for a wonderful stay!

This was our second year staying at a Lizzie Lu's Island Retreat managed property and I can't say enough positive things about it. Their properties feel freshly updated, are well maintained/ provisioned , are close to the beach, family friendly, and all at a reasonable price.

Surf Camp is a great property and excellent for a family of four. My wife and I plus our two kids (7 and 2) cooked almost all of our meals in the well appointed kitchen. Most days we headed to the beach in the morning and spent the afternoons cooling off in the small pool. The inclusion of an outdoor shower, washer/dryer, and all the beach gear you might need make this one a winner.
