We stayed 5 days in Rob's house after a road-trip from Montreal with our 2 young kids. It was perfect to rest... quiet and clean place with comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen and nice garden.
The must is the proximity to the beach... no road to cross... just 1 minute to walk and a long beach with mostly only Pelicans.
The plus is that Manasota Key have good places to have coffee, drinks or diner and the stump pass beach state park is wonderful for walking, beaching and kayaking and observing birds/dolphins...
Thanks Rob, it was great time spent there with our family
