Charming, bright and sunny, rent this fabulous 2 bedroom cottage located RIGHT ON THE BEACH, just steps from the water. Enjoy the million dollar views and watch the dolphins play from the large screened porch or from the huge picture window in the living room. Relax out front on your own, private beach.
Be enchanted with this island where there are no high rises, no traffic lights and no crowds. A two-lane road runs the length of the island with pristine beaches on the west side and Lemon Bay on the east side. We are just steps from Stump Pass state park and wildlife sanctuary where you will discover a pristine, uninhabited shoreline.
Shops and restaurants within walking distance. More shopping, restaurants, golf courses and boat rentals all just a short drive away.
HI! We're your hosts, Jon and Sally Bruggeman. Our family loves our beach house and we know you will, too! Welcome!
The Owner purchased this cottage in 2002
We purchased a rental property on Manasota Key because the beach is fantastic and the surrounding area is quaint and uncrowded.
This house has 3 separate rental units. If you have more than one or two families, we can accommodate everyone! We're in a great location, right next to a state park with over one mile of uninhabited shoreline!
We are a married couple who run two businesses with a child in college and one in high school. Not easy to get all four of us together for any length of time. This was perfect.
The screened in porch faces the ocean for a way to get away from the sun yet still feel like you are on the beach.We took our morning coffee and breakfast there and spent many nights just talking and listening to the ocean. Plenty of great places for lunch and dinner within even walking distance. Great place for walks on the pleasant surrounding streets. Close to Sarasota for the Marie Selby Botanical Garden and the Mote Aquirium. Very clean condo with wonderful view and quaint kitchen. We are back in Chicago but feel rejuvinated by the warm air and rest. (Be ready to leave by the checkout time, cleaning staff is there promply at 10:00 a.m.)
My husband & I have vacationed in Florida the past 6 years & hands down this vacation rental is the BEST!!! The view from the living room window is awesome, very comfortable with everything that you need to settle in for a great week. Enjoy you own private beach area, restaurants nearby & don't miss out on a walk through Stump Pass Park. We will return!!! Thank you Sally & Jon for sharing your vacation home with us.
We stayed here for a week with our 2.5 year old son. We absolutely loved being right on the sand, in a quiet area. We spent hours on the beach every day (beach toys for kids provided & plenty of towels)! The home fit our needs perfectly. It was very clean!! We loved the screened porch, and ate most of our meals there. The owners were very responsive and easy to work with. We will definitely be planning another trip!!
We stayed in this unit for our wedding/honeymoon and we couldn't of been happier! The unit was super clean and The bed was so comfortable it felt like we we're right at home! The view from the living room was better than I had expected! Simply beautiful! The beach is just a few stairs and steps away! We enjoyed the mornings on the beach watching the dolphins swim right by us! The restaurants are a few minutes away.. We really enjoyed Flounders(great music and awesome outside bar). The owner of the unit Sal was great help with any questions we had.:) we will defiantly be back for a stay at this unit!
We stayed two weeks at this wonderful beachhouse.
It was exactly what we were looking for.
Perfect location, wonderful beach. We went several times to stump pass, did swimm with Manatees and saw a lot of Dolphins.
We have just returned home to England and we would go back to this house tomorrow if we could. This has got to be the best beachfront setting ever, you are just steps away from the clean white sand. The house is very clean and comfortable, with a modern well-equipped kitchen. From the moment the sun comes up to the incredible sunsets across the Gulf this is an idyllic location. The screened porch makes for great dolphin watching and the chance to cool down in the heat of the mid-day sun. The beach is quiet and there's plenty of furniture and room for everyone in the accommodation to eat out in the evenings. We found the other visitors to be really friendly and sociable and watching the sunset became a ritual with an iced drink in hand! We recommend a visit to the nearby state park (a short walk along the beach) and also suggest that you take time to spot manatees from the bridges to the Key. I'm sure that - like us - you'll soon be addicted to collecting fossil shark teeth along the waterline! Nearby there are good restaurants, a pizza delivery service and a great Farmers' Market in Englewood. Thank you Sally for sharing your home with us!
