VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This is the second time that my family and I stay in this home. We are a large group of 10 people and we all fit comfortably. The beach is wonderful and private. You will see dolphins playing in the water and there are seashells and sharks' teeth galore. The owner and local caretaker are both extremely courteous and responsive. The house is in great condition inside and we had no compliants or concerns. Thank you for the wonderful week.

A VERY WONDERFUL, QUIET AND RELAXING VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Our family has been coming to Florida during the winter for the last 6 years and this is by far the best we have stayed at. I brought my wife and three children (4, 9,11) and my wife's parents.

This spacious house sitting right on the beach is amazing. Did I say spacious? This place is huge and is in excellent condition. My family of 7 stayed 7 nights and had a great time playing in the sand, fishing, sunning, waverunner ridding and relaxing. The screened in porch and upper deck are again very spacious.

I played golf at Sarasota National which is about a ten minute drive from the house and was a wonderful course. We rented a pontoon boat from Allure and caught fish down by Stump Pass. Also, rented a waverunner and took it out in the ocean and quietly stalked dolphins. Also, we usually saw dolphins in the morning right in front of the house.

Restaurants are within a few miles but recommend getting reservations for evening meals. Lunch was not an issue. Lock and Key and Gull View Grill were excellent.

The road on Manasota Key is a tree lined canopy which is very amazing. Also, we liked the place so much we've already booked it for next year.

BEAUTIFUL SPACIOUS HOME ON MANASOTA KEY

  • 3 of 5
We had a wonderful week on Manasota Key with our entire family to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary.

From the time we arrived and saw the view of the gulf from this home on the beach, we were thrilled. The house was clean, well equipped and very spacious. We loved the luxury of each of us having a room with a private bath.

We enjoyed the area, but spent much of our time at "home", including having many of our meals there. Henry was faithful about coming for his twice daily hot dogs. We hunted for shells and sharks' teeth, watched dolphins, went snorkeling and swimming and rented wave runners.

We would recommend your home to our friends.

CHRISTMAS VACATION 2013 :-)

  • 5 of 5
Our Christmas Vacation this year brought us to this wonderful property on Manasota Key. We needed a large house to fit my wife's family. After reviewing the potential rentals, this was our unanimous choice! And a great decision it was!

Dave was great to work with. He is very prompt and answered all of our questions. Could not have asked for more.

We arrived at the house after a long trek from Wisconsin. Everyone ran out of the cars to get the first view of the beach…and what a view!! Every face in the family had an ‘ear to ear’ smile. It was hard to believe we get this 'little piece of warm Florida heaven' for a whole week. We were not at the house 5 minutes and the younger cousins had there suits on and were searching for shark’s teeth.

The house is very conducive for family gatherings. It has large open spaces with lots of seating. The kitchen is centrally located and well laid out. It overlooks the beach through sliding doors (awesome view). The living room is nice and roomy. All the cousins could be found in there at night chill’in and watching some TV. The lanai was the favorite of the uncles…a little spot to sit, enjoy a cocktail, and listen to the tree frogs chirp and the surf hitting the beach. All of the bedrooms were roomy and well appointed. All in all, the house was exactly what we were looking.

We had 7 days of mostly sunny skies with highs between 75 to 85 degrees….you could not have asked for better weather. We spent about 6 days just hanging out on the beach. Between shark’s tooth hunting, shelling, and fishing, we saw no reason to leave.

Henry the Heron was there almost every morning & afternoon looking for his handout…make sure you stock up on cheap hot dogs! He loves them. One day we had 2 ‘Henry’s’ at the house. We could not tell the ‘imposter’ Henry from the ‘real’ Henry.…one on the roof and one on the deck…neither of them was very fond of the other.

And last, but certainly not least, “Mac” the care taker is a truly a great guy. We had him help out with a few things throughout the week. He is the most pleasant and interesting man you would want to meet. He was a lot of fun to talk to.

We had so much fun this year, we have already booked a week next year.

GREAT PLACE FOR QUIET VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We (2 couples) came all the way from Germany to spend 3 weeks in this house. We enjoyed every single day. The house is exactly as described, huge, spacious, very good beds, nice furniture and floors, large screened porch with beautiful view of the ocean, upper deck with high chairs and the same beautiful view. The kitchen is well equipped and the washing machine and dryer are new and work very well. The owner was very very helpful prior to the trip during the planning phase and also during our stay. He was very quick in answering all our questions and helping with all our needs. We would also like to thank his helping hand on site for all he did for us. The surrounding of the house is very quiet, the only sound at night is from the ocean waves (very romantic). There is hardly anybody on the beach, only sometimes one of the neighbours walks by, so it is very much felt like a private beach. We were there mainly for playing golf and swimming, both of which were fantastic. Sometimes the beach has lots of shells which makes the beach walk a bit painful, so shoes are recommended on some days, depending on the surf. We can recommend the house to all those who love to spend a quiet vacation just steps away from the ocean. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

MANASOTA

  • 4 of 5
The location is just as described, perfect beach front. Manasota Key is relaxed and several good spots to eat are within easy reach, as is food shopping. Allure Boat rental for Kayaks and day boating - excellent. We were two families at the house - 4 adults and 5 children. It was very adequate with good space and family friendly; nice bedrooms with great views - we watched Dolphins regularly from the deck! Externally the house and garden is a little tired; the weather obviously takes its toll but this did cause it to lose a bit of 'wow' appeal. Inside, its a family house first and rental second, so expect busy cupboards and plenty of ornaments; on balance we felt it was a little top ended on price but nonetheless had a brilliant week and ideal after two weeks of theme parks. Dave the owner an absolute gentleman.
