We had a great time at Shades of Surf. It was our first time at Anna Maria and the accomodation was fabulous. The house is total perfection: location, accomodations, kitchen equipment, beach equipment, pool, cleanliness. We ate seafood every evening at the fabulous restaurants located on the island. We were very sad to have to leave, and more sad to find out that we can’t come back, due to unavailability. Our only complaint was that we didn’t have access to the garage door remote, and it was inconvenient to have to open garage door, remove your vehicle, get out and close the garage door, etc.
