House was great. the pictures don't do it justice! open and spacious. the location was fabulous. House had everything you would need. close to restaurants if you wanted to leave but you could stay and enjoy the beautiful scenery. was one of the best, relaxing vacations we have had in a long time. hope to come back next year.
What we wanted was a comfortable home, right on the beach that would have lots of privacy. What we got was a beautiful, luxurious home, right on the beach with great privacy. We can’t say enough about how pleased we were with this home on Mansota Key. It was comfortable, luxurious with every amenity you could possibly want. The beach was right out front and we were usually the only people on it. We are great walkers and quickly found the Manasota Key house is central to a surprisingly large number of parks and nature preserves. Over two weeks we explored over 13 different reserves and parks most within a 10 mile radius of the house. The hot tub was particularly welcoming after several miles of walking.
This home is a perfect mix of accessibility, privacy, luxury and convenience. We thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay and would love to do it again. Our dog Ginger loved it also.
We had the most awesome family vacation at this beach paradise. We've stayed on Manasota Key for years and this home is the perfect beach experience. We have 4 children ages 6 through 15 and it fit us perfectly. Plenty of space for everyone to be alone and have privacy that is needed and yet perfect to be together and enjoy moments away from the real world. The home was extremely clean and well stocked with lots of towels, glasses, plates, pots, utensils etc. The outdoor shower and bathtub and various hoses were extremely handy in getting our toes clean as well as rinsing off all of our beach toys, shark teeth and shells. The hot tub and hammocks provided a relaxing bonus. Manasota Key is a rustic real old Florida experience with turtles roaming around, sand dunes, and natural vegetation. This home is situated perfectly to enjoy this environment. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. We will definitely want to stay at this home again!
While the house itself is vintage, the property and location are perfect! It was truly paradise and we will be back next year!
We had a wonderful week at this home on Manasota Key. The beach is just steps from the back yard and the homeowners have everything needed to spend your days laying in the sun. The grounds of this home are perfectly set up with hammocks, outdoor shower, king sized bed, Bar Ba Que and plenty of seating. The sunsets are spectecular! The morning walks are private and serene and shark teeth are washed up on your feet! Most of the days we had the beach all to ourselves with the exception of a few neighbors and fisherman. The men fished with "Captain Dan" and caught a 30Ib Permit that fed the 7 of us for two nights! We did eat out a few nights, but all of our best meals and evenings were spent at the home. We had a great time renting Jet Skis in Englewood, Music at Sharkys on the Pier in Venice and shopping in Saratosa. The neighborhood is very quite, the beach is perfect, and the home is close to grocery shopping and dining. The home is stocked with beach towels, and the washer and dryer came in very handy! We are looking forward to visting again and making this a regular vacation spot!
I have thought long and hard before writing this negative review. Our prior Home Away rentals have been fantastic and we list a place for rental in the Adirondacks. I believe we have a pretty good handle on both sides of the aisle as far as home rentals. The good thing is that this property is ideally located on the ocean. However, it is in need of serious repair and updating. Part of the property (an adjoining wing to the main home) is under construction. It was not an attractive sight. The toilets (and other plumbing) failed on Thansgiving Eve. The owners did return our cals the day after the holiday but were only mildly receptive to our plight. They offered no apology and no financial recompense even when they learned that our Thanskgiving dinner plans were marred by backed up sinks and unusable toilets. The neighbor who came and graciously bailed us out ( as well as the plumber who showed up at midnight and was there pumping the system out (loudly) until nearly 3 am) advised that it was not the first time that a rental had been upset by plumbing issues. The livingroom furniture was damp and smelled very musty. This may be due to a cracked wall where moisture and insects were entering the home. There was a lot of dust everywhere and a lot of junk in kitchen cabinets and the pantry. Unfortunately we were entertaining a client and her two teens that week. She was a good egg about the whole mess. Frankly, we were embarrassed. I would not recommend this property.
