Manasota Key House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)
Our Non-Smoking, family, beach home was designed by well-known architect and is directly on a very quiet beach. Fishing is at its best and a boat ramp is located two miles away. Views from the deck at sunset are spectacular. Some of Florida's finest fishing waters are found both in the Gulf and adjacent Lemon Bay.
Beautiful white sand beaches are practically uninhabited...A great shelling area, too!!
We are also just 45 minutes from Boca Grande, famous for tarpon fishing in late May and June. Guides and day-trips can be arranged. Several beautiful golf courses which are open to the public are just a short drive.
Privacy is exceptional as the house cannot be seen from the road and is sheltered by sea oaks and sea grape on the beachside.

This long barrier island draws people who want seclusion in a natural setting with abundant wildlife.
“It’s about the only place left on the west coast that resembles the Old Florida and the way that it used to be back in the 1940’s and 1950’s — the trees and the way people have kept things natural,” said Nelda Thompson, a longtime key resident who is also a real estate broker. “There are not so many mega-mansions, which we love. It makes it very private and makes it very special.”

About The Owner
We built our beach home and spent many summers here when our children were young. Now our children and grandchildren enjoy their vacations here
The Owner purchased this house in 1969
Why The Owner chose Manasota Key
This is a prime beach location on the West Coast of Florida--no high rises or condos allowed in our area which is a Florida Conservation District. Since we built our home years ago, there are now mansions being built but nothing is like our Florida Beach Cottage.
What makes this house unique
Our family gathers here so that we may enjoy each other and our darling grandchildren. We had our five granddaughters and grandson here on Memorial Day.
