Sunshine Reef is a gorgeous 4 bedroom and 4 bathroom ground level private home that offers an incredible location on top of wonderful amenities that the whole family will enjoy. Located on the prestigious North end of Anna Maria Island, you are only two blocks away from the popular Pine Avenue adorned with quaint local restaurants and shops and only two blocks east of the gorgeous white sandy Gulf beaches.
Once you experience the amazing tropical backyard-you simply won't want to leave. Enriched with lush mature tropical landscaping, you will feel as though you are on your own private island. The large private heated pool is equipped with both a grand sun shelf and a swim up Tiki table-it doesn't get better than this.
Vacation time on Anna Maria Island is meant to be spent outdoors and there is nothing this luxurious backyard doesn't offer. From the covered pool side lanai with plenty of outdoor seating, the large flat screen TV, outdoor bar and so much more. Everything you might need on your vacation is already here-enjoy the breezes of the outdoor fans for those balmy summer days or make use of the heat lamps for extra comfort during winter nights. There is no better place to spend the holidays, spring break or just a family getaway for some quality time spent together!
The interior is just as impressive with beautiful furnishings throughout this lovely home that can comfortably accommodate a group of 10. Enjoy three en-suites with their own private bathroom and a bedroom designed just for the littles ones in mind. This property participates in our Professional Linen Program. In Anna Maria Vacation's continuous effort to bring only the best quality experience to our guests, we are proud to offer a professional linen service at this property to better enhance your enjoyment while staying here. This luxury amenity provides you high quality linens that are in place and ready for your use upon your arrival. These high-quality linens are washed in a commercial setting using the latest and best technology.
Take the fuss and worry out of packing your private sheets and beach towels knowing that when you arrive to your dream vacation rental, in place are high quality and commercially cleaned luxury bedding, bath towels, wash cloths and beach towels ready for your stay. Eliminate the guessing game, free up luggage space and breathe easy knowing that everything is already taken care of for you. This same philosophy extends even to your departure- nothing to wash, dry, fold or having to fool with trying to squeeze into an already tightly packed suitcase! A fantastic "must have amenity" for your AMI vacation experience.
Bedrooms & Bathrooms
Sunshine Reef features 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms-there are 3 suites with their own private bathroom. Featuring 1 King bed, 2 Queens and 1 sets of bunk beds--this property can comfortably accomodate a group of 10. The kids room also features two bean bag chairs that fold out into twin beds.
The grand covered deck is ideal for spending time outdoors and features plenty of seating--what better way to enjoy the game than pool side with an ice cold drink in your hand? The pool side bar, flatscreen TV and outdoor living area are just some of the fantastic amenities that Sunshine Reef offers. Enjoy the use of the bikes for a quick ride down Pine Avenue, where local and family owned shops and restaurants await. Or simply stroll over to the beautiful beaches of the Gulf of Mexico for an exhilirating day by the beach.
** If you would like to have your pool heated, we kindly ask that you please contact AMV at least 10 days prior to your arrival so that it ensures us ample time to fulfill your request. We do offer pool heat as needed as a courtesy to our guests at no additional charge. All of our pools and pool equipment are closely monitored by the pool company for your safety, we kindly ask that the controls not be tampered with- most of the systems are locked for this reason. Due to the island's strict 10pm noise ordinance, the pool heaters will not run overnight. Please remember, outdoor spas are not hot tubs (some properties have a spa, some have a hot tub). Generally speaking, our winter months are considered from November through April. During these months we do our best to ensure that the pools are heated to a temperature of 82 degrees. However, please be aware that even in Central Florida we do occasionally get cold spells that can send the temperatures down into the 30's for a few nights in a row. This will cause the pool water temperature to draw down to in the 70's and a pool pump will automatically shut down if the outside temperature gets too cold. The pump will then kick back on in the morning and begin re-heating of the pool back to 82, which may take several days depending on the severity of the cold spell. Ultimately, these situations are beyond our control. Other issues such as severe weather conditions, equipment malfunction, temporary loss of use of equipment or amenities due to maintenance purposes or other items do happen for time to time. Please be aware that AMV cannot issue refunds during your stay based on acts of God. However, please know that in the rare event of pool equipment malfunction during your stay, AMV will do everything in our power to expedite repairs as quickly as possible as we certainly want you to enjoy your heated pool and Florida sunshine to the fullest

This beautiful vacation house provided time for our family to relax and enjoy with each other midst comfortable surroundings. The grandchildren loved the gorgeous pool set in a very private and tropical setting. Our large group of 6 adults and 7 children had plenty of space in the outdoor lanai to eat, play, and splash in the pool. The comfortable beds in the four bedrooms provided a relaxed and contented night’s sleep. The entire house is tastefully furnished with a well stocked kitchen. It was an easy walk to the white sanded beach with restaurants and shops close by. We look forward to a return visit to a terrific house in a lovely setting.

Sunshine Reef exceeded every expectation. The “en-suite” bedrooms were spacious, beds comfortable, linens crisp and fresh. In-door common area was tastefully decorated with a great kitchen and all necessary “home” amenities. However, what really set Sunshine Reef apart from other rentals we’ve used in the past was the backyard pool and covered, lanai-style deck area. The heated pool was at perfect temperature and the Lanai area tastefully décored with comfortable furniture and cooling ceiling fans. The Lanai also smartly outfitted with a bar, TV, a great sound system for music, and a large “game” table for cards or a board game, all adding perfectly to the entertainment factor of the pool. Truly couldn’t have been more relaxing and fun hanging out under the Lanai with the pool steps away. The lush mature plants / trees bordering the backyard provided the privacy and tropical ambiance to complete the “vacation” experience. So well done.
As for location, very easy walks to restaurants, ice cream, and beach. Rod and Real Pier Restaurant overlooking the Bay, and the Sandbar Restaurant looking out onto the adjoining beach and Gulf, were our favorite dining experiences. The nearby Donut Experiment was great fun and delicious for all.
Sunshine Reef provided the home base for a great vacation experience. There is no doubt this house rental will be tops on our list when we next return to Anna Maria for vacation fun!

Absolutely loved the place!
I don’t know the value of the home, but I feel like someone let me stay in their $2 million dollar house for a week!!!
The location is perfect, walking distance to the beach, restaurants and bars… But, really there is no reason to leave. The pool area and gathering area with bar, is totally private and very comfortable. Not your typical rental with cheap stuff… this place is loaded with expensive furniture inside/outside and there is ample space for everyone. In addition, I really liked that everything is on one level… no stairs to carry the luggage up and down!!! Would I stay at this place again? Absolutely… 5 stars clean – 5 stars location – 6 stars quality

A group of guys wanted a place for base camp for a golf trip and the Sunshine Reef did not disappoint. Just a short walk to the beach with awesome nightlife and still close enough to the many golf courses around the area. The house is perfect for a large family and just a few buddies just having fun. The outdoor area will blow your mind. Great bar with a big area to lounge and watch your favorite event and the pool is just the icing on top. In fact, you could spend the entire day on the patio. Cant wait to go back, but next time I’m taking my family.

Our family travels frequently, and I must say that this home is one of the nicest we’ve ever rented. We look forward to returning again on another vacation!!!
The house is clean, well appointed, and tastefully decorated. It has a nice layout where each bedroom area is suite-like with its own bathroom; and the beds are really comfortable. We enjoyed a great experience relaxing by the pool in the spacious lanai area. This was our “home base” to escape the sun during the day or play cards and watch TV in the warm Florida nights. There were many thoughtful extras like bikes, pool toys, a wii console, and a nice patio heater for late nights!
This home is nicely located to experience the best of Anna Maria. Other than a trip to the grocery store, we didn’t need to use our car at all. The beautiful beach, shopping and great food were within walking distance including: custom donuts at the Donut Experiment, and Poppo’s Taqueria, Waterfront, and Rod & Reel Pier.
