AMAZING BEACH HOME IN PARADISE!! LOCATED DIRECTLY ON THE BEACH!

Manasota Key House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Manasota Key Island Home. Congratulations! You've found a beautiful tropical island getaway! Enjoy a private home in paradise. A wonderful home that's right on the beach with a huge screened in Lanai that faces the beach. This is a very unique island that is still the natural 'Old Florida'. This entire home is on ground level so there are no stairways to climb. We're easily accessible from the mainland by two bridges. Manasota Key is well known for its casual and relaxed pace. Everyone who has stayed here wants to come back again!

Collect shells, sand dollars, or star fish, surf fish, snorkel, or take a stroll or a jog along miles of private, pristine white sandy beaches. Close by you may rent boats, canoes, wave runners, bikes, or motor scooters.

Excellent casual or fine dining restaurants and tiki bars near by - many within walking distance. Save one gas, everything is close by.

We're located on a quiet Florida west coast key (island), right on the Gulf of Mexico, just 40 minutes south of the Sarasota International Airport and 45 minutes north of the Fort Myers airport.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
We have been home a little over a week and can't wait to return to the Paradise Beach Home. It is paradise! We have stayed at various condos up and down Manasota Key, but staying in a house was a wonderful change. We arrived at the home in the early evening and were greeted with a beautiful bouquet of flowers and some lovely snacks. After traveling all day, it was a nice surprise. It was great to find a well equipped kitchen with spices (I love to cook) pots and pans, dishes, etc. The wrap around lanai is where we spent a great deal of our time. It was wonderful to sit and have coffee in the morning and dinner at night. We didn't spend much time on the deck as the sun was blazing and there is no shade, but in the cooler months, this would be the place to be! The view is amazing. We saw dolphins almost every day and saw manatees twice, I only wished we could have seen some of the turtles hatch. Maybe next time! Overall, it was the most peaceful and comfortable piece of Old Florida that anyone could ask for.

A Great Beach Vacation on Manasota Key

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at this beautiful beach home we arrived May 15 2012,the owner was super nice and super helpful with all the details and even left treats on the counter for our kids[dogs] upon arrival and flowers for us to enjoy!
The home was super clean and lots of towels and extras too.

This house was great a few steps from the sandy beach to your home away from home.Our 2 dogs had so much fun swimming in the ocean and then we could put them up to rest while we went shelling the house has everything to make it a perfect home away from home.

We did not want to leave and we will definately be back again hopefully sooner than later.
thanks again for a great place to stay and a place where we can bring our entire family pets inclued.
Enjoy the beach and then go relax in a comfortable home and grill out streaks and watch the best sunsets in the world what a place to call home for a week or more.

The home is better than pictures and plenty of places to eat and plenty of boats to rent and fun things to do and alot of neat shopping spots too.
The best shells are right outside your back door.

cant wait to go back to this home in paradise.
thanks again!!

Notes:
A beautiful, ground level home, large screened lanai, roof top deck, very private on tropically landscaped 1 acre. Just steps to your own private beach on the pristine blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico with magnificent sunsets on a daily basis, casual and relaxed island life yet only minutes to restaurants and shopping. Stroll miles of private beach, collect shells, sand dollars, or star fish, This unique island is still natural 'Old Florida' with easy access from the mainland (Englewood) by 2 bridges over Lemon Bay. Nearby you may rent canoes, boats, wave runners, kayaks, bikes and motor scooters. The fishing is superb and many golf courses are nearby.
