Manasota Key House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Watch the sun set over the gulf from this secluded beachfront home on Manasota Key with a pristine private beach. The property stretches from the gulf to the bay, and includes both a gulf beach and a private boating/fishing dock on Lemon Bay. A wooden cat walk connects your front door to the gazebo on the gulf.

This luxury home with modern amenities includes four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a large dining room, large living room (with large screen television), well appointed kitchen and a lanai. The upstairs master bedroom has a private bath and king bed. The upstairs also hosts two guest bedrooms (one with a king bed, one with two twin beds) that share a second bathroom. Another master bedroom on the first floor has a private bath with jetted tub and a queen bed. The whole house is on stilts, with private parking underneath and an elevator to make first floor access easy.

Adults and children alike can enjoy swimming, shelling, collecting sharks teeth, and viewing the native wildlife such as dolphins, pelicans, herons, and of course the gopher tortoise that lives in the back yard. Enjoy drinks on the gazebo while watching your children build sand castles while the sun sets over the gulf. Fish for Red Fish, Snook, Snapper and Sheephead. In the summer, you may even see sea turtles make their nests on the beach.

Fishing poles are provided, along with a hammock at the gazebo and portable beach chairs. Extra housekeeping can be provided as often as you wish for an extra charge.

Why The Owner chose Manasota Key

We built this house in 1977 as a family vacation house, and for a while it became our year-round residence. We love the natural Florida experience, with undisturbed beaches and native wildlife.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5
My family (which included our 2 yr. old grand child) spent a wonderful 2 weeks at Manasota Key. The house was perfect. Lots of room so no one is getting in each others way. (4 full bathrooms a BIG plus!) Everything was clean and orderly and ready for us on our arrival. The owners were very helpful and friendly. If you run into any problem at all, someone is there to take care of it right away.

The kitchen is great---tons of room for more than one cook to work on meals. And the dining room is enormous.

The Living room is very comfortable for lots of people to sit, watch TV, relax with a book, whatever. It's actually bigger than the photos show.

Bedrooms were lovely and spacious. 2 master suites made everyone quite comfortable. Really. The photos do not do the house justice.

Something to keep in mind...this is an older house. It was someone's HOME. Part of the charm is that it doesn't feel like a hotel room. It is clean and welcoming. It sits between the Gulf and Lemon Bay, so the location is amazing. Because of the natural foliage and walkway leading to the private beach, you feel like you are on your own island.

This was our first family vacation in a very long time, and we loved every minute. We'll be back.

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Out of all of our family vacations, this one was by far the best. The private beach and water was amazing, the house was well maintained and had a lot of character. We were initially a little worried after reading some of the previous reviews, but our worries were unfounded.

This is an amazing house. Yes it is a little outdated, but that is what gives this beach house its character. It's was very obviously a family's primary home or vacation home and they have taken very good care of it. The wildlife here was amazing. From the dolphins jumping off the beach to the sea turtle that we found crawling up the sand late at night.. every bit of it left lasting memories that our family will remember for years to come.

We will definitely be booking this same house again next year. Thank you for letting us make some great memories in your home!

Manasota Key Beach House

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at the "Beach House". Elevator to the 1st floor a Plus. Listing description & photos accurate & the owner helpful. Home well-stocked with amenities and all enjoyed the beach finding hundreds of shark teeth. King bed upstairs was extremely comfortable. Needs foliage trimmed a bit & dead branches cleaned up along walk-way to the beach, perhaps getting a better view of the beach. Sunsets were awesome & we had sunny weather every day. A little problem with termites swarming but the bug man came & fixed the problem. Would recommend this beach house for a great time.

Beach wedding/family vacation

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented this house for my daughters wedding. The wedding was on the private beach at sunset followed by the recpetion in the front yard (parking area). The location allowed us privacy and plenty of room for the 60+ guests at the reception. The house is absolutey beautiful and had everything you could possibly need. We found hundreds of sharks teeth and my son and nephew fished right on the private beach and dock as well. We saw some dolphins swimming in the bay off the dock. I will definetly come back to this house. It has the old Florida charm and is very comfortable.

It was fine

  • 4 of 5
The review of 1//9/14 is quite accurate (minus the rat). House is not elegant; certainly dated. Additionally, because it is surrounded by dense foliage, it's always dark inside. But we knew it did not have a direct view of the beach. Everything worked inside. Nice big screen TV to watch Olympics. Nice stereo system. Cleaning crew did leave food items from previous guests. House was clean & comfortable.

Probably my biggest criticism is the poor condition of the sliding doors/screens. The sliding screen doors really need some attention. Also, and this was more of a chuckle, there must be fifty light switches in this house and their locations don't all coincide with lights in the area. Very confusing.

Obviously, most of the time is spent outside, so overall things were fine. We had great weather and many things to do, so really the only time we were inside was to eat and sleep. There were plenty of beach toys for young children. Fishing poles were fine.

O/L family

  • 3 of 5
The space was great for our multigenerational family. The owner responded promptly to replace a blender that did not work. We did not report a locked oven door because we chose not to use the oven.
The description of "elegant", however, is inaccurate. The house was clean but greatly in need of updating: peeling laminate on upstairs bathroom door, grubby shag carpeting in a beach house? Outdoor furniture rusted and salt encrusted, a rat ran out of that storage cabinet.
Having lived on our sailboat for three years in the Caribbean, I understand the challenges of maintaining equipment in a salt water environment, but it can be done.
The bench on the bay side was unusable, broken slats.
In general, the house needs a good external pressure washing, replacement of inferior quality interior doors, replacing "tired" shag carpeting and updating of decor to restore it to "elegant" status.
