TRUE BEACHFRONT BEACH HOUSE ON PRIVATE BEACH

Manasota Key House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Are you looking for the perfect beach house hide-a-way on a tropical island with your own deserted beach; a beach house and beach so private and secluded that you are likely to see more dolphins than people? Do you dream of a beach that is littered with shells and fossilized sharks teeth, where you can watch one magnificent sunset after another? Then we have your dream come true.

Our beach house is on a secluded beach that makes up the barrier island of Manasota Key. Our beach is a very quiet beach. The entire island is a conservation area. You can often sit for hours and not see even another person. The sand is covered with gorgeous shells and numerous sharks’ teeth. About 20 feet off shore is one of the few Florida West Coast Reefs in just a few feet of water; perfect for snorkeling and fishing. There are abundant tropical and game fish. Yet you are just a 10 minute drive back to the main land for restaurants and stores.

We have two screened porches; one right on the beach, perfect for watching enchanting sunsets while dolphins play in the waves. The other screened porch is attached to our house, about 100 feet back from the beach, for barbecue and relaxing. Between the sand and our beach house is our private backyard filled with numerous tall palm trees. The house has new appliances including a Sub-Zero refrigerator, three TVs, and cable TV and high speed cable internet, with Wi-Fi and laser printer for you to access with your own computer. Each bedroom and the living room have stereos that accept ipods and MP3 players. Golf, tennis, restaurants, and shopping are only minutes away on the mainland.

Board games, puzzles and X-Box and games provided for the kids to play.

My family and I are water and beach lovers. We enjoy SCUBA diving, boating, wake boarding and jet skiing. When we get tired we just sit back and enjoy the sunset.

Mark & Michele Lipman purchased this house in 2002

We bought this cottage because of its quiet and secluded location away from all of the hustle and bustle. We were looking for a beach that we could just sit back and read a book and feel like the whole world is ours. No body to disturb us.

We enjoy our cute cottage. It has everything we need to enjoy our selves and relax. When we arrive at our cottage we can take off our watches and set our internal clocks to island time. We collect shark's teeth. We go out on the boat. We bar-b-que with friends. It is a total paradise.

Great Beach Getaway, in style

Great private spot with wonderful lanai right on the beach. Finally finished my book with no interruptions, except watching pelicans diving for food. You just never knew what you were going to see next. We just booked for our next vacation at this beautiful spot again.

Had a great week of relaxation, rest, and reading on the beach. Just what we needed after a stressful January. The house was very comfortable and the beach lanai was perfect for reading and resting on the beach. Very quiet and peaceful island with easy access to the mainland and shops.

Dream come true

We had a wonderful month long vacation at Cuddlefish Cottage. It was like a dream come true for my husband and I, it certainly clicked off a box on our bucket list.

We were up and on the beach nearly everyday at dawn. We just couldn't resist the pull to stay on the beach. We even went down to the beach a couple of times with a flash light just to look out at the ocean. It was like the ebbing tide was pulling us there. So relaxing, other people who were walking the beach were very nice and helpful whenever I asked about the "stones and bones" on the beach. I tried to find a large sharks' tooth, to no avail, but everyone told me where to go to find one, but we couldn't leave the cottage or beach long enough to go there. My husband and I had laid out a plan for doing different things to do, in case, we got bored, well, that never happened. And we have already booked it for next year same time and same place.

Mark was wonderful with any requests we had and took care of them promptly. Thanks, Mark!!

Definitely secluded and private

My husband and I spent a glorious week at Cuddlefish Cottage. We were able to bring along our two Cane Corsos (Italian Mastiffs) because the beach is pet friendly. That was a HUGE plus for us. We had the beach to ourselves 95% of the time. The other 5% we were sharing it with a large gray heron and his minions! There are a variety of birds there because of the schools of small fish in the surf. It was very relaxing.

We spent a lot of time on the beach and our evenings on the screened in back porch enjoying the absolute quiet. We took the kayak out with the dolphins one day, watched a group of thirty manta rays another and observed a baby hammerhead shark chase fish for breakfast around almost every morning.
We actually left our solitude once and ventured out to dinner at Flounders. It is South of Cuddlefish. The food was excellent and the waitress was very sweet. But, we found we didn't really want to leave and go anywhere. We picked up groceries and snorkel gear in town at the Wal-Mart. Everything else was already thought of by Mark and Michelle.
Definitely worth the trip and definitely worth going back!
