Overview

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 Stump Pass. This rental stands high above the rest in every way. When views, quality and cleanliness are important ,The Highview delivers all and more!

Each suite sleeps six and rents separately.

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.

Why Peter and MaryJo - Owners chose Manasota Key

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Peter & Mary Jo,

Carl & I are grateful for the time in The Highview! We had never been to the Gulf Coast of Florida. Our time on Manasota Key exceeded our expectations! Highview is thoroughly equipped so as to simply pull up with one's bags & enjoy! The location is superb! We took daily excursions on the bikes, kayaks and even the paddleboards. We found many sharks teeth on our beach walks. The access to the state park & beach brought about many opportunities to enjoy the dolphins and other wildlife! We cannot say enough good things about the location or your home. Thank you for opening your home to us!

A pefect home away from home

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic week at The Highview on Manasota Key!

The house was wonderfully accommodating and decorated so beautifully. We loved the idea that there were kayaks, paddleboard, bikes etc for us to use...which we did several times. We also utilized the shell cleaning station and outdoor shower often. The Manasota Key area was wonderful as well...Plenty of shopping and dining close It was nice that Stump Pass Beach State Park was so close. The week that we were there , it was VERY windy, so to be able to enjoy the water and outdoors, we spent a lot of time at the Park, where it was a little more secluded and protected. The only tiny drawback for me was that the house wasn't right on the beach. I understood that the water was just across the street, but I didn't realize that there were houses between us and the water... But still a wonderful place to vacation. I would highly recommend it!

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!

Owner's Response: Hi Annika, I'm so glad The Highview was the perfect match for your family. It was a pleasure having you. I have heard this before " we hope the reviews are for real" Thanks for confirming that what you read in the reviews ARE the real deal. We do our very best to make every vacation the best it can be (what we would enjoy) And we have fun doing it. Thanks again and come back and see us again soon! Best, Peter & MaryJo
