Sunshine Reef

308 Palm Avenue

Anna Maria Island, Fl 34216

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. 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. The kids room also features two bean bag chairs that fold out into twin beds.


Sunshine Reef offers a true tropical getaway exprience with its wonderful backyard. Adorned with a large private heated pool that features a spacious sun shelf and a swim up Tiki table. Sit back, relax and soak up the sunshine on the sun shelf as you let all of your worries float away in the water or let the littles ones splash around and play safely in the shallower waters.

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

Sunshine All The Way!

Sorry it’s taken me SO long to get around to writing this, but we had a family bereavement and life has been hectic back here in England. Thinking back to February though – yet ANOTHER amazing week in yet ANOTHER Anna Maria Vacations Dream Home. Our family from the USA, Ireland and the UK get together once a year for a wonderful week together and once again the house could not have been better. A fantastic location with everything on our doorstep and so beautifully furnished and equipped, we wanted for nothing. Well, we could have done without two days of heavy rain, but we played games, sang and danced (I hope there were no complaints from neighbours!) and laughed a lot, so we still had a great time. The pool and the lovely covered patio / deck with all the comfy furniture was fabulous – especially good for the elderly Aunties….. We all wanted to take the Tortoise home with us. Good thing he is far too heavy to move! Thank you again AMI Vacations team for all YOU do to make our holidays so perfect and so memorable. We are already looking forward to seeing you all again in March next year. With all our love and thanks. Fran Montgomery and all the Catt Family.

Thank you for leaving such a kind review, Fran! We are thrilled to hear about your wonderful stay at Sunshine Reef! We’re so glad that you and your family enjoyed the pool, covered patio, beautifully furnished and well equipped home! We can’t wait to have you all back in March!

Sunshine Reef provides relaxation in style

By: Trip Date: 7/15/17

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.

Hi Bob,
Thank you for telling us about your stay at Sunshine Reef, we are so glad to hear that you enjoyed it! We’re happy you all were able to relax and enjoy the lanai and pool area and that the beds were comfortable and provided a good night sleep! We appreciate the kind words and we are glad you were able to take advantage of the location and walk around to explore the local restaurants and shops. We look forward to having you back for your next stay on Anna Maria Island!

Anna Maria in style

By: Trip Date: 11/13/2017

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!

Hi Peter,
Thank you for telling us about your stay – we’re so happy you enjoyed Sunshine Reef! We’re glad the bedrooms were to your liking and that the beds were comfortable. We’re thrilled to hear that you enjoyed the backyard area and the pool! Sounds like everyone enjoyed themselves on the lanai between lounging at the bar and playing card games. We’re happy you all were able to take advantage of the location and walk around to local shops and restaurants. We hope to hear back from you soon for your next stay on Anna Maria Island!

Not your typical Rental

By: Trip Date: 11/06/2017

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

Hi Neal,
Thank you so much for the amazing review, we greatly appreciate it! We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Sunshine Reef, as well as the location. We are so happy you enjoyed the pool area and outdoor area by the bar! We are glad it was suited to your liking and truly appreciate the kind words. We hope to hear from you soon to book again for your next stay on Anna Maria Island!

Great place for families and friends

By: Trip Date: 11/15/2017

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.

Hi R. Williams,
Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay at Sunshine Reef! We are very happy to hear that you all enjoyed the location and the outdoor area. We’re glad to hear you were able to make use of the bar area while lounging around the pool and enjoying the outdoors. We would be more than happy to help you plan your next stay on Anna Maria Island with your family!

Great Time on Anna Maria!

By: Trip Date: 12/28/2016

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.
