Our stay at the Surof house was fantastic. The house was well cleaned before our arrival. It is a fairly new construction, and the owners thought of many small details to make the house perfect for guests. It was also well stocked with linens and kitchen supplies. You won't find a better home for beach access and sunset viewing. We had one minor issue with the internet not working early in our trip, and AMILocals, the management company, took care of the issue within an hour after my call. I would definitely stay in this home again!

BEST LOCATION EVER!!
This is a house you would fall in love with the moment you walk in the door. Its location is the best... in the middle of everywhere and with beachfront views.You can't get any better.!!! You have everything you would need at the beach and more. We hope to have a second chance of having it available this coming summer!! Thank you. Lourdes

Perfection on The Gulf
A beautifully renovated & decorated home with stunning views of the blue Gulf water! Our family of 5 loved The Surof House & all it had to offer. We will absolutely be back! Booking through AMI Locals was a breeze, and they made check-in & check-out just as simple.

Beautiful Cottage with a beautiful view
The cottage is beautifully decorated and very clean! The beach is right across the street, short walking distance. Beautiful sunsets from the porch!
The guest services were also great. Called them about trash that was left by the trash bins and they sent someone out to clean it up right away!
Would definitely go back!

SUNSET VIEWS ARE AMAZING
From the minute you walk in you know you are someplace special. The house is very well built and the decor both up to date and tasteful. The water and sunset views are amazing and the beach is literally right across the street. Loved being able to set up our tent early in the morning and then head back in for breakfast. The bay is just a few houses down making it super easy to paddle board and kayak in the evenings. Last night we were followed by a couple of curious porpoises! Lisa responded very quickly to our only issue ... didn’t realize you can not use the garbage disposal and dishwasher at the same time. Great kitchen for someone that actually likes to cook. Loved the extra fridge down in the storage area. We will definitely be back!

SURPASSED ALL OF OUR EXPECTATIONS!
Lisa's home surpassed all of our expectations. This is the type of beach home you want for a real beach cottage getaway. Location is amazing and views of the gulf sunsets are to die for. The home is beautifully decorated with a very relaxed and beachy theme. The home layout allows you a direct view of the beach from almost everywhere, kitchen, living room, dining room, or the wonderful wrap around balcony with lounge chairs. The home was sparkling clean, furniture is very high end and well kept, and the kitchen is equipped with everything you would need. There were enough beach and bath towels for everyone staying and a very practical washer and dryer unit to keep all our beach clothes fresh. The beach across the house is one of the best in this area, white sand, no rocks, and not too crowded. There are restaurants, pizza places, and bars at a walking distance. All in all, this is a perfect place to stay if you want to have a fun and relax gateaway at a wonderful beach home.

WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!!
The place is super clean and nicely decorated which I think is very important when staying somewhere! Great location to the beach and walking distance to a fun little beach shopping area with restaurants and a tiki bar on the water. Would definitely recommend and would stay again!!

Love this beach house
Great stay!!! The beach house is fresh and modern. Everything from the keyless door to the beautiful decor is perfect. This place looks like it was built yesterday with white shiplap walls and soft grey wood look tile floors throughout. The two king size beds sleep wonderfully. Plenty of room for two adults and a small child . Our grandchildren loved the upstairs room. They spent all their time up there watching tv, playing games, or reading a book. There is a stair ladder to the upstairs that may not be safe for younger kids but appropriately for 6 or 7 yrs old and up. Our youngest was 8 and she had no problems going up and down the ladder. Pictures don’t do it justice. The deck looks out to the gulf waters and beach. And the sunset is breathtaking!!! Very short walk to the beach and the beach house has a chart full of all the beach toys and necessities you will need for the perfect day at the beach . I admit I was a little concerned with the road being between the house and beach but there’s not that much traffic and the six of us had no problems crossing to the beach. I will definitely be back. The folks at Ami locals are terrific and very helpful. I definitely recommend this rental . You want regret it !!

As advertised but fyi
The Surof House is exactly as pictured and described. Adorable! Our rating is 5 star for this property on our first visit to Anna Maria.
A couple notes though:
ONE BATHROOM. It clearly states that in the description but I did not think that through in our selection. Our occupancy of 5 found this an inconvenience and an inquiring “what were they thinking...” every time two wanted access to the bathroom or shower. Can’t imagine how 7 would share one bathroom. Two nice king size beds on the main floor. The 20 somethings were not too keen on using the ladder every time they wanted to retrieve something from the loft room but younger kids would probably love it.
Road noise. As pictured the house looks out toward the beach and we spent many hours on those great orange adirondacks. Loved the slider doors opened wide the length of the deck. Great morning spot in shade with breeze for yoga and mat workout. Our week was spring break so most likely traffic was heavier but we heard car noise starting before sunrise. This continued throughout the day until the steady stream of cars slowed to a crawl mid morning until evening.
AMI Locals, the rental agency, was prompt and thorough with communication. They also provided the additional towels and glassware we requested promptly. Would rent from them again. Their pre arrival instructions stated only one trash bag, dishwasher tab, paper towel roll, and toilet paper roll so come prepared or expect to buy the jumbo packs at local Publix’s when the smaller sizes are sold out.
Don’t mean to focus on the negatives but good to be aware. Great week!

PERFECT FOR OUR FAMILY OF FIVE!
This place was absolutely perfect for our family of five. I don't even know where to start... location is amazing, sunsets from the deck are to die for, all of the beach amenities are an incredible touch, the decorating to furniture is top notch, I could go on and on.... And the beach and town of Bradenton Beach, wow!!! Thank you so much Lisa for making this an amazing vacation for us!!!

THE VIEWS DON'T GET ANY BETTER!!
The views don’t get better. One block from sunrise and sunset from the patio.Close enough to shopping and restaurants. Far enough to relax.
