We have had great fun renovating and redecorating the property. As an Interior Decorator I wanted the beach house to feel like a real vacation place. A place to put your feet up, relax and read a book after a day at the beach. The kitchen is fully stocked and ready for a quick meal or a memorable gathering.
Shelly purchased this house in 2010
After vacationing on Shore View Drive for more than 10 years, we were offered the opportunity to own our own bit of paradise and jumped right in!! After a stay here you'll understand why we are now owners on Manasota Key! A true vacation awaits us every chance we get. Which with all of our bookings is never enough- Winters in Door County, Wisconsin are beautiful but they are winters none the less.
Stayed for a week and loved the location. Great to have the beach across the quiet street -needed to be in the water to cool off and enjoy the sun. Everything we needed was there. Owners are making great changes and can't wait to see it all done! Love the new Florida Beach Bungalow colors and look.
my family of five (three teens/preteens) loved this adorable cottage, the inside is as pretty as the outside views. we enjoyed close by restaurants, the locals, the beach (swimming with the manatees) and paddleboarding at stump pass, sunset yoga on the beach, icecream, shopping at venice, and chilling in the sunroom.landlord is a pleasure to work with and we are already looking forward to returning. we made some wonderful family memories, thank you shelly!!!
We stayed at this delightful cottage in the middle of April 2014. The decorating is beyond delightful. Besides just making you feel wonderful in the space it is very clean and thoughtfully appointed. Anything you can think you might need is there including some things you probably didn't think of. Lovely sunsets just across the very quiet street and more nature than you could hope for on the inner waterway just a block away. Stump pass state park is a block away and was wonderful to walk each day. There are restaurants nearby with great food and live music. We Biked, rented a pontoon and relaxed. The only thing that would make this property even better would be a privacy fence in the back yard. It wasn't an issue but it would just make it more private.
This was our third visit and loved it even more. The cottage as always is excellent. It's always clean, cute, and well stocked for everything one would want to do. Sunsets on the beach watching the Pelicans diving for fish was a new sight and finding the Farmers Market was a real taste treat! There is always something new to find and explore. We love it.
Our time spent at this cute, cozy beach cottage was all we had hoped for. The house was just like the photos! We found everything to be clean and in order. Especially liked the outdoor shower after coming back from the beach. It was great to have bags, beach chairs and towels all provided. So nice to just walk across the street to be on the water.
The owner was so helpful and enjoyed "sharing" her special place.
It was easy and convenient to go to restaurants and other areas to check them out.
We would definitely recommend this place to others.
We had a great time at your beach house. Every thing was as advertised-house was clean and comfortable. Excellant location for beach lovers
I stayed at Shells by the Beach for around 5 weeks in Nov/Dec. 2012 with my dog. As a long time renter on Manasota Key (28 years) I can honestly say this was my best rental yet. The location, house, weather, owners, price...everything was great. I wanted to be back sooner but it's been booked when I've been free. Don't miss out if it's available when you need it.
