PANORAMIC WATER VIEWS! FREE BIKES, KAYAKS AND STAND UP PADDLE BOARDS!

Manasota Key House Rental Photos and Description

Spotless accommodations, fun for every one and the best views on the Island!

Location,location,location! The Highview is situated on the southern tip of the Island, you could almost throw a coconut from Gulf to the Bay here. JUST STEPS TO THE BEACH and Stumps Pass. This rental stands high above the rest in every way. When views, quality and cleanliness are important ,The Highview delivers all and more!

Take a ride on our beach cruiser bikes, launch the kayaks or try the stand up paddle boards for the first time. You wont want for anything here...it's all here, it's all FREE, and included with your rental!

Kick back in the comfortable orange lifeguard chairs and take in the awesome views overlooking The Gulf of Mexico and Lemon Bay. Nothing but blue sky's and blue water everywhere. The Highview gets two thumbs up from the locals and is a great spot for star gazing in the evening.

While inside, walk freely around the open floor plan. There's high speed wireless internet with boost, two bedrooms with high quality linens, and three flat screen TVs. Enjoy cooking your favorite meal in the fully equipped kitchen. The comfortable open Living room has a large flat screen HDTV, and beautiful Gulf Views.

Love the outdoors?...then you'll feel right at home here. Cook out on one of our Weber grills. The picnic area and tables are nestled in sea shells. Found some great stuff at the beach???...Wash off your bounty in the custom built shell cleaning station.

Enjoy the enclosed open top outdoor shower with hot and cold running water and blue sky views. Walk around the property sipping a cool drink and be swept away by the lush tropical landscaping that surrounds the Highview.

One of the best things about this home is it's location. It's right next door to Stump Pass State Park. There are 265 acres of sandy walking trails and pristine beaches. You can ALWAYS find a section of beach all to yourself. The wildlife here is amazing. You will see pelicans diving for fish, Osprey in tree tops, dolphins and manatee swimming the shoreline. Sea turtles lay eggs here every year and don't forget to look for prehistoric sharks teeth (not hard to find) and go shelling at the point.

If you've been here before you know it's allure, if it's your first time, get ready for a soul refreshing journey!

Bring your friends and family, the bottom floor may be available. Call or email for Pictures and pricing.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Great place, nicely furnished, more amenities than you will need, a convenient location, and breathtaking sunsets. The place is just far enough from local restaurants so you aren't bothered by noise, or foot traffic, but it's close enough so you can easily get a bite to eat, or a drink or two without going out of your way. The temperature of the gulf was perfect, warm enough to float in all day, but cool enough to be refreshing. Southwest Florida is an awesome place to vacation.

After searching the Florida Gulf Coast we fell in love with This unknown, unheard of Island. Manasota Key is about 300 yards wide by four miles long and has to be Florida's Best kept secret!

Imagine an Island with just four great beaches and a few local hot spots. Anything else you need or want is just off Island. If you love nature and natural beauty like we do, you will love this slice of Paridise.

Our home sits on the southern most tip of the Island and is next to Stump Pass State Park. This home has panoramic water views of both Lemon bay and the Gulf of Mexico.

GREAT PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the lower level while family stayed on top level. Fully equipped with everything you need for the beach - we overpacked our beach items given all that was there. Only need to bring your suitcases!!! Beach was an easy walk across a very small road - older kids were able to go back and forth alone! Neighbors were very friendly and owner was very helpful!

PERFECT MATCH!

  • 5 of 5
We, a Swiss/Swedish family with kids (aged 3, 8, and 11), read all the reviews and comments about this place thoroughly before booking. This must be just perfect for us... and so it was! There are so many nice and good things written about the Highview, the infrastructure, cleanliness, the forthcoming owners and Manasota Key in general, that we don't need to repeat it. IT'S ALL TRUE!

DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND JUST STAY HERE!!!

  • 5 of 5
This is the first review I have ever written about anything and my husband and I travel a lot. But my stay was so wonderful I just have to do this. Place has everythign you need. I mean EVERYTHING. We had the 2nd floor apt. and it was immaculate. Clean sheets and towels, nice clean furniture, spacious living area and clean fridge. Not to mention the beautiful "penthouse suite" as I called it. It's really just the rooftop observation deck but the pictures don't do it justice. It's the highest point on the block and the views do not dissapoint. Getting back to the apt, you have every type of utensil for the kitchen you could dream up, all sorts of goodies for the beach (we didn't even get a chance to use it all) and it's super close to shops, supermarket, bait shops and restaurants. You can walk to the Beach in about 73 seconds, I'm not kidding and its a beautiful beach. Honestly my only concern is that other people know about this place and I can't stay here whenever I want. We left on a Saturday and immediately looked up the calendar to see when our next stay could be. To boot, owners are superb!! They just happen to be there during our stay and we were glad they were. Made our stay even easier. My selfish side wants no one to read this and go elsewhere, but if you are on the fence about this place don't think twice. You really won't regret it.

Owner's Response: Hi Alex

This being your first review ever, we feel very privileged that you would take the time to share your experience with others. Thanks for the five star rating too! It was a pleasure having you and Leo. Thanks for not only pointing out the cleanliness but also the beautiful views from the top floor observation deck...I mean the "penthouse suite"

You are so right on, the pictures just don't do it justice. You have to be up there in all its three D beauty to fully appreciate the the awesome sights and sounds morning, noon and night.

Thanks again and come back and visit soon!

P.S. Thanks for the fresh snook on the way out. it was fantastic!

PAMPERED IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
These owners make sure you have everything you need to enjoy your stay at the beach. We utilized the big boy "toys" almost daily. We paddleboarded and kayaked, having a blast each day. The Highview is beautifully decorated and clean. We picked this place mainly because it is a smoke free property which we are always looking for and because all the amenities they provided. We were not disappointed.

Glad you guys had a great time. Manasota key has to be one of the best places on the Gulf coast to kayak and paddle-board. Glad you guys took full advantage of the free toys. Come back and see us again soon!
