We had a wonderful time at Siernia by the Sea! Unfortunately, we got very unlucky with the weather, but the home was awesome and we had a great time nonetheless hanging out in there! The pool and hot tub were fantastic as was the whole outdoor space. Nancy was very responsive and helpful with connecting us to a boat tour (canceled due to weather, sadly) and she gave great tips for restaurants and grocery stores in the area. We'd definitely come back again!

Beautiful house, bedrooms are lovely, well appointed kitchen, plenty of bathrooms and excellent location. The backyard is a little bit of paradise. We had 8 adults and one child, spent one week and were completely satisfied!

Great Anna Maria Home

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ - 5 stars


Just returned from Anna Maria Island, Florida. Had a wonderful time, in general, and truly enjoyed our family outing (11 persons total) at Serenia By The Sea. Owners Nancy and Terri were very easy to work with and we even at the chance to meet Nancy in person. We highly recommend it.

Paradise on Anna Maria Island

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ - 5 stars

This property is perfect for our large family summer vacation. Sirenia By the Sea is so well stocked and equipped it makes packing for a week simple and easy. The house has 2 refrigerates, 2 cloths washers and 2 dryers to keep our clothes and beach towels fresh and clean. Nancy and Teri supply all the beach "stuff" so we can pack even lighter. The property sits on the canal so the guys could fish as much as they want. If you really want to know how good this property is, just look at the number of repeat families they get. If you don't like the house they don't re-book it several years in a row. AMI is so nice to vacation on, the beaches are beautiful, the Gulf is perfect and it has a good mix of quiet and active. We can't wait to return.

First time to AMI

We loved the backyard! We spent lots of time by the pool and the canal fishing and kayaking. The house was spacious and perfect for our group of 10. We hope to visit again. AMI was just what we needed to relax and make some great family memories!

Great house for a beach/water loving family!

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ - 4 stars

Judith F .

For us, the house was a perfect location: close to great beach, on a canal for paddle boarding and fishing, good pool and hot tub. I was impressed by how well appointed the kitchen was: good pots and pans and lots of tools for the chefs. Having two washers and dryers was very convenient...we used lots of beach towels. The cart was a life saver as were all the beach "tools," umbrellas, chairs, etc. We love cooking evening meals and sitting around the table for hours. The house provided everything we needed. The dining room table was perfect for our family of 12. Having two living rooms worked out great for us: one for tv watching, one of working our annual 1,000 piece puzzle. The house location is great. We were not far from Publix and the Sand Bar....two of our reoccurring stops. The bedrooms, being of such variety of size, posed a little problem. With 4 boys sleeping upstairs, we experienced some noise in the the bedroom by the pool. Also, adding some privacy shades to the patio doors adjacent to that bedroom would be nice. The owners were very responsive to all our questions and needs. They helped make our arrival and departure smooth. We would consider returning to Sirenia By The Sea. It was a great experience.

Great for home for 2+ Families

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ - 5 stars

Carly L .

We stayed at Sirenia with my husband's family and loved that there were two separate master bedrooms on two different levels. The second floor master and bedroom with two twins was a perfect fit for our family and allowed my in-laws to have the first floor. This way we had a little separation, which was nice! The home had two sets of washer/dryers, and while doing laundry really isn't first priority on a vacation, with a group our size, it was nice to have two sets so we could freshen up towels easily. Our kids loved the pool - they keep the temperature warm, which we all loved! The kitchen was well appointed for a rental home. I like to cook, even on vacation, so I would have loved sharper knives, but they were consistent with what we have found in other rentals! Plus, they had a second refrigerator in the garage area, which was great for more space for cooling extra beverages. The house is a short walk to the beach, which was really nice since it felt like we needed take every possible chair and beach toy every time we went!

Another perfect stay!

We just got back from our third visit to Sirenia by the Sea, and once again it was superb! We had a party of 11, so the large spacious house was perfect for our clan. We also have an individual with physical disabilities, so having a master bedroom and living areas on the main floor was a huge plus. The location is great - 1-1/2 blocks from the beach and a short walk to Pine Ave. But who needs the beach with a pool area like this one! We got sun every day we were there, and the layout of the back yard means there is always a place to get a tan. I would heartily recommend Sirenia by the Sea to anyone with a large group.

The best AMI has to offer

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ - 5 stars

Tim S.

Sirenia By The Sea is about the best location you can hope for on AMI. The canal in back made for easy access to Kayak or load up the wagon for a short walk to the beach. My seven year old granddaughter wasn't this excited on Xmas when she was checking out each bedroom and the pool/spa in back. Plenty of towels are offered and a starter supply of essentials (TP, paper towels etc.) but be aware like most rentals you will need to pretty much supply everything other than salt and pepper that we found. I advise to bring some of your small spices from home if you plan on cooking in very much. We would definately go back to Sirenia By The Sea when we have a large group.

This house could not have been more perfect for our family of 11. Everyone had plenty of space and the outdoor pool and spa were simply perfect after a day at the beach. The kitchen was so well supplied and there was enough space for all of us to eat together in the spacious dining room. Our family has taken many vacations together but this place is at the top of my list because of its proximity to the beach and the spaciousness of the house.

Can not say enough good things about this property and owners! The 12 of us had an amazing week! 6 adults, 2 teenagers and 4 kids. Every single person had an outstanding vacation. So much room for all families to have their own space. All the sleeping quarters were nicely spread out. The proximity to the beach and great restaurants from the house is perfect. There truly isn’t anything, that any of us could think of, that wasn’t provided at the house. Very clean and impeccably maintained! We for sure hope to be returning in the future!!

Second time staying at one of Nancy and Terri's homes. Stayed at Sirenia Cove last year, and Sirenia by the Sea this year. Nancy and Terri are great to work with. Their homes are very nice... decorated well, up to date, great locations, etc. This house in particular is HUGE with 2 massive master bedrooms. My wife and I rented the house with our 2 kids and each of our mothers and everyone had there own space/bedroom/bathroom/etc. I really can't say enough good things about it. We are already looking forward to returning to AMI, and as long as Nancy and Terri's homes are available on those dates my family will be staying there!

The minute we walked through the front door, the six of us were smiling and feeling giddy! We loved this home! Terri and Nancy were awesome to work with the weeks before we arrived. Sirenia By The Sea was so comfortable and welcoming. Absolutely loved the beachy decor and all the amenities. The back yard oasis was unbelieveable. We all enjoyed our coffee every morning out by the bay inlet. We hung out daily in the warm watered pool. The kitchen was totally stocked with all the appliances and things we needed! The beach was a short block and a half walk away. Location really was perfect for walking to some shops and restaurants and if you wanted to go even further, then the free trolley stop was just at the end of the street! We were 3 couples staying here and the bedrooms with en suite bathrooms were perfect for us! Did I say how cute this place was furnished?!?! LOVED IT!!! Will definitely be back and hopefully staying here or in one of the other residences the owners have available! Thanks and hugs to you, Nancy! I really enjoyed working with you on our vacation and celebration of my 35 wedding anniversary! Xoxoxo Beth W.

First of all Terry and Nancy were so accommodating and available. We absolutely loved our stay!!! This home was clean and comfy and equipped with all of the things you see in these pictures. Just pack your clothes and come. We had our boat, which was priority to us. Easy to launch and dock. The beds were comfy!!! We just loved it and will definitely do it again. Thank you Terri and Nancy!!!!!

We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home in a great location on AMI. This was our first time to AMI and we were taken back by the beautiful gulf waters and beautiful beaches that looked exactly like the pictures. After exploring the island a little, we felt we really were at the best location. The beach entrance on Oak Street was a short enjoyable walk down an uncrowded and pretty "Oak Street". The beach was beautiful and felt almost private to us and a few others that were enjoying it. We came in mid-August. AMI is beautiful no matter where you go, but I feel we had the perfect spot! The home was beautiful and cheerful; very spacious and comfortable. The pool and backyard area are just as pictured. We enjoyed the pool and the grill. Lots of fun was had! We appreciated having two washers and dryers as well! The ping pong table was another plus and lots of fun. This home had everything we needed from beach chairs and beach towels to kitchen items, etc etc. One week went by way too fast, but we had a wonderful time at Sirenia by the Sea, and Anna Maria Island is a quaint, quiet, beautiful island. We also saw manatees at our beach and followed them all the way to Beane Point. That was a thrill!

We had a week as a holiday and family reunion, with my son s family who live in USA with my daughter s family from UK. The house was perfect for this ,with a twin rooms for the girls and boys, and spacious kitchen and eating areas, inside and out. Although we only used the outside table as the weather was so good late into the night together with a great BBQ. The pool was fantastic for the kids with a great selection of fun items. We used the house mooring frequently, for fishing and hiring kayaks for a number of days, as it was only a short paddle to the open bay where we saw dolphins and manatees. However you couldn’t beat fishing from Anna Maria Pier. A great house with a lot of wonderful memories. It was sad to have to leave , but next stop was Mickey Mouse before returning back to the UK.

This was our third year to spend our family beach vacation at Sirenia By the Sea. The boat could be docked right in the canal behind the pool. The kids enjoyed paddleboarding and kayaking in the canal leading to the bay. The Gulf beach was just a block away also. What more could you want? It was perfect!!

This is our families third year and we absolutely love this house!!! the accommodations are over the top, the owners are awesome and always available if anything comes up! We love the two living areas the two refrigerators and the two washer/dryer this makes everything so nice with a large group. The pool and hot top were a hit with our kids and we brought our boat so having a place to dock our boat and fish off the dock was great! We rarely went out because the house is so awesome!! The beach is only a short walk from the house. Our family calls this the perfect beach house! We are already planning next year!!

This was our 3rd year staying at Serinia by the Sea. We've already book next year 2018. The house is perfect for large families we have 5 couples and we each have ample space. There are so many amenities it's hard for us to list, but the owners do a good job listing them in the house information. Plenty of parking, 2 washer and dryer sets and the garage is converted to a huge room for play and beach toy storage. The owners continually surprise us with upgrades and amenities. We love it here!

This property was absolutely perfect for our family of 8 adults and 3 small children. The kids were happy every day, biggest decision was whether to swim at the beach (a short walk away) or in the pool (a shorter walk away... the back yard!). The beach towels were great, kids' toys and wagon available......too many amenities to list. Nancy and Terri were both so welcoming and helpful. We will return again and again!

This is our 12th year coming to Anna Maria with our children and grandchildren. This is the best house that we have rented. The house is nicely furnished; the kitchen has everything necessary if cooking is your thing; the towels and linens are plentiful and of excellent quality; the TV's, WiFi and other electronics are up to date and work well; the pool and outside furniture are great. In short a perfect house for a family vacation. Lastly, all of our interactions with the owners were easy and helpful.

Our second time staying at Sirenia by the Sea, and it was even better than the first. The property itself is in excellent condition, and the owners and management team are very responsive. We had some little issues pop up, and an email to Nancy or Terri and they were taken care of the same day. The inside was all completely repainted and it looks fabulous! Great color scheme for a tropical paradise. The location is great; 1-1/2 blocks to the ocean, a few minutes by golf cart to both Publix and the Anna Maria General Store. A new activity we tried this time was kayaking. A canal runs the back length of the property, with a dock and boat lift. Our group was able to kayak into the bay, where we saw Manatee basking in the sun. A little windy to go much further, but that was pretty cool. We also tried fishing in the canal but got skunked. My wife and I are "hotel snobs," but we would never hesitate to rent this property, or either of the other two owned by Nancy and Terri. That's about as glowing a recommendation as I can possibly give. You won't be disappointed.

Our group was very pleased with all aspects of this property. It had everything you could ask for : location, pool and hot tub, fishing supplies and a dock, easy access to the beach with all necessary beach supplies, fully appointed kitchen with lots of glasses, cups and dishes, baby supplies. Love the layout of the house as it is spacious and each bedroom is semi isolated. HOpe we can go back again one day.

This is our second stay at Sirenia by The Sea. In our last 20 years of visiting Florida this was the first time we chose the same villa for our next holiday. The villa is even better than described on the web site. Huge comfortable rooms, spotlessly clean throughout. Easy access to beach , restaurants, bars and coffee shops. I cannot think of anything that is missing from this villa to ensure guests have a relaxing stress free stay. Owners easy to contact and very helpful. The only negative remark I can make regards our holiday is that we had to come home and leave the villa behind.

Thank you Terri and Nancy! Your beautiful, well appointed home was the perfect getaway for our family get-together. We enjoyed the pool/spa, the short walk to the beach with our wagon full of chairs & umbrellas and loved the daily trolley rides into AMI & Bradenton for meals. Your home did not want for anything we needed! We'll be back:) Tom & Beth

We had a wonderful stay in Anna Maria Island. Our third time on the island, the house was perfect for our two families of grown up children. The house had everything we needed and was very close to the glorious beach (one block away). Also perfectly situated for the free trolley (stop at the end of the road) and the restaurants and shops at the north end of the island including 'Dips' ice dream which was visited daily. All was accessible by walking although we also hired bikes from 'Beach Bums'. If you like fishing, then the boat dock at the back of the house is perfect and the house is also close to the two island piers; the Rod and Reel is particularly good. Anna Maria Island is a beautiful place and we would highly recommend this property and the island. We had an amazing holiday and we will be back.

This is our second year coming to Sirenia by the Sea. The house is awesome, there were 7 adults and 5 children and we had plenty of room!!! Everyone had their own space, the grandkids loved having their own room next to' the master with us ( plus the closet was big and their dolls also had a room!!) two living areas make it so nice especially when the kids want to watch their tv shows or play alone! The house is equipped with everything you could possibly need plus more!! Two refrigerators and two washer and dryers were great! When we were not at the beach (which is a very short walk) we were in the pool and after the kids in bed the sauna!!! We brought our boat so having a place to keep it was great!!! I can't say enough about this wonderful house and the owners!! No one wanted to go home and we are already planning to come back next year!!! Pam and Andy Anderson and family Savannah Ga

This is the perfect house and location. Ownership is wonderful, caring and responsive.

Mike V.

After reading all the reviews prior to booking, it was difficult to believe all the glowing comments from previous guests. Nevertheless, the comments were quite accurate making any new comments difficult to come by. Our family of 10 including 2 young grandchildren needed the space provided by the vacation home which was highlighted by the two separate living room areas and five bedrooms. The pool was the other amenity that we loved. The owners have provided the guests with the small things that make the vacation great. Items like beach towels, beach buggy and umbrellas, pool and beach toys and fishing poles. Anna Maria island is an excellent area and our second visit providing good restaurants if you choose to dine out. It's only negative is the weekend traffic, but bikes and golf carts are available. This place definitely requires a return visit.
