We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage! We found the property to be immaculate, charming, and very well appointed. Our stay was very comfortable and relaxing. We enjoyed the barbeque and found everything we needed in the kitchen. The private patio is charming and peaceful. The location is ideal for walking to the beach and also to the local restaurants. The homeowners are on the premises and were extremely nice and pleasant. We enjoyed the island and all of the parks, we rented a boat and went fishing as well as fished from the docks and beach. The wildlife was awesome and we saw dolphins every day. We can't wait to come back and visit!

Charming cottage, great location and value!

We stayed in the cottage the last 2 weeks in March and were very satisfied. The cottage was charmingly decorated, immaculately clean, and from what I saw when looking at other places to rent, a good value. We loved that the cottage was a stand-alone building (quiet) with its own private entrance and landscaped patio. The cottage is well-supplied including lovely, thick towels for the shower, extra linens for the bed, beach towels, and anything else you could need for the beach. It was just a short walk to the beach down a private road / path – much better than dealing with the crowds at the public beaches.
The kitchen was also well-supplied. Regarding the comments of the previous renter, the description clearly outlines what is available. I did some light cooking and did not have an issue with the equipment available or space to clean up. We grabbed ice at the convenience store and cooled our drinks in a cooler, storing the extra ice in the freezer box of the mini-fridge. There are restaurants within walking distance at the circle, plus lots of take-out options on the main land (Chinese, pizza, and made-to-order subs at Publix.)
The owner was great to work with – easy to reach via email or phone, but totally unobtrusive, even though they were in residence next door.

Owners were very accommodating, but kitchen area VERY confined. Doing dishes was a challenge since there was no place to drain the dishes. Stove electric burner drip pans were very corroded -- need to be replaced. Small refrigerator had the very small freezer -- almost impossible to keep ice. If you eat out all the time, there's no problem, but if you choose to cook, it is a real challenge. Rest of the cottage was satisfactory. Location was wonderful.

A Gem on Manasota Key

My husband and I recently spent 2 wonderful weeks at this cottage over the holidays. The cottage was clean and bright and plenty of room for the 2 of us. We especially liked that you could close the door to the bedroom so that one could watch TV while the other napped. The owners were accessible and fixed the problem right away when we had an issue with the wifi and barbecue grill. We really enjoyed our time here. The only things not provided that I wished had been are ice and washer/dryer. But even those things being absent won't stop us from considering this cottage again for our next trip to Manasota Key.

Great Place to Stay on Manasota Key!

Everything was wonderful!!

The cottage was easy to find, had great parking, a private entrance and its very own fenced in patio. Beautifully landscaped property. The interior was immaculate and charming with cool green walls and fresh white furniture. Sheets and bath towels were soft and luxurious. Big, colorful beach towels were also provided as well as everything needed for the beach - chairs, umbrellas, etc.

We enjoyed being able to walk up to the restaurants, avoiding the beach traffic at the circle. We went to Flounders and The Lock and Key often (they had alot of live music) and had lunch once at the Gulf View Grill. All three were very good. The Circle K convenience store on the corner was handy for ice and beverages etc. My hands down favorite part of the whole experience was how easy it was to get to the beach. Across the road and down a picturesque path was probably the nicest stretch of beach on the Key. We were there for two weeks in March - high season in FL - and it was never crowded at "our" beach.

The owners were so nice to work with before, during and after our stay. They cheerfully allowed us to change the dates of our stay, checked in with us when we first arrived and returned the security deposit promptly. The were accessible, but not intrusive.

It takes a leap of faith to rent a place online but have no worries about the Sandpiper Cottage. It is the perfect size for one person or a couple. (Opening the sofa bed would be a little tight.) We go to Englewood to see friends who live in the area. Everyone who stopped by to visit loved the place and marveled that we "did it right, staying at the beach". A free-standing, private, single story building on a quiet side street was perfect for us - we aren't condo/pool people. Our two weeks went by much too quickly!
