About The Owner

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!

The Owner purchased this house in 2012

Why The Owner chose Anna Maria

We think you’ll agree that this is a simply great find! We encourage you to read the reviews of Surf's Up from our previous guests. 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.

What makes this house unique

Completely and lovingly renovated in 2012. It is perfect for a small family, couples young and young at heart! An ideal destination for your honeymoon in Florida's Wedding Capital too! We are particularly focused on keeping Surf's Up immaculately clean and comfortable.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Surf's Up was better than we had hoped for. It was charming, clean and convenient. The screened-in porch and backyard pool area were phenomenal. The tall palms gave it complete privacy and shade (barely needed to turn on air entire time) and it was really nice to listen to them blowing at night.

Scott (the owner) was extremely helpful and understanding when I had to make changes to the reservation.

Would highly recommend!

Amazing home away from home in AMI

  • 5 of 5

I just can't say enough about how perfect this home was for our little family of four. We absolutely LOVED everything about it. From the kitchen, to the bedrooms, to the pool, to the location... it was one of the best vacations we have ever had - and Surf's Up had alot to do with this. We hope to return very soon - sad that you are booked up in March!!!

Perfect spot for a family of four - will be back!

  • 5 of 5

We just left Surfs Up and had the best week! The weather was perfect, the beaches were impeccable and the house had everything we needed!

The kids had a blast playing in the pool whenever we weren't on the beech or getting ice cream in town.

Thank you again!

Another wonderful visit, full of great memories

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our fourth visit to Surf's Up and, as usual, the house provided a wonderful and relaxing home for our family vacation. While all of our prior visits have just been the three of us, we had another family member with us for a few nights of this trip, and she raved about how beautiful, comfortable, and well-appointed the house is. We love how comfortable and familiar the house feels, and it's always in immaculate condition when we arrive. We also love the close proximity to the beach, and we used many of the beach chairs, umbrellas, all easily transportable via the provided cart available in Surf's Up. We explored our normal favorite places on and near the island (Poppo's, Ginny & Jane E's, and Starfish Seafood, among others) - but we also did the water horseback riding/swimming with C-Ponies, right on Holmes Beach. It was an amazing and unique aspect to our trip. Just cannot say enough good things about our favorite little "Orange House" - and we're already looking forward to our FIFTH visit planned for next spring!

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 beaches, 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 (1 hour) and Sarasota (45 mins) 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, Rod & Reel Pier, and Poppo's Tacos in Anna Maria. Ginny & Jane E's and Peaches are great places for breakfast and lunch. It's about a 30-45 minute drive to Sarasota, depending on the time of year. Tampa is a little over an hour. St. Petersburg is about 45-50 minutes away.

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