“Absolute relaxation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2012

Just returned from a three day holiday in Anna Maria and what a wonderful stay at the Sunrise Garden Resort. It has "old" Florida" charm that matches the island perfectly and Spence, the on site owner and manager, has that Southern graciousness that makes you feel right at home. This was a scouting trip to determine if this would be the place for a group vacation this summer and it will be ideal. It is a slight walk to the beach, but the trolley is free and you can go everywhere, including other beaches on the island. Do not hesitate to stay here, just let me get my own reservations for my next visit set up before you make yours.

Room Tip: Poolside, ground floor

Stayed in an upstairs, 1-bedroom and it was comfortable for the two of us. I can see where, if you're going to be there for very long, you would want a downstairs unit that has a patio area. Beautiful landscaping, clean and newly renovated rooms. Spence was very nice and helpful but didn't meet Jessie. The location is great, within walking distance of everything in Anna Maria village. Very quiet. We would like to return someday.

My wife and I stayed 8 nights at Sunrise Garden Resort. If the expression: 'A home away from home' has meaning, then it's right here. Wonderful location in beautiful surroundings. So quietly, so you could almost hear when a leaf fell to the ground.
We hope that we will be able to stay at Sunrise Garden Resort a second time when we go to Florida.

This is truly an amazing resort. I would highly recommend staying here!

What makes this place better than the others?
It's size and cleanliness. I've stay at some of the larger resorts on Anna Maria Island and they simply are not near as clean or as nice! Bigger is NOT always better!! This amazing paradise resort is a perfect example. I would describe this as a small, quiet, remote, and perfect getaway.

Small laid back 16 unit complex with very reasonable rates. The young couple who own the place are new to the business and eager to please. They are doing a great job of upgrading the place, our one bedroom unit had everything we needed and was nicely furnished. Every unit appeared to have a private patio with table & chairs. We were in unit 4 which has a darling fenced in patio garden area. Nice pool area, with everything you need to enjoy your self including noodles and a gas bbq. Very close to the Anna Maria Pier and water. This was my first trip to this part of the country and believe me we'll be back and stay at Sunrise Garden Resort again. Beaches are beautiful on Anna Maria Island!

Room Tip: Room 4 was wonderful, the Crow's Nest unit was very bare bones but a real bargain.
