Manasota Key House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Thank you for your interest in our Englewood, FL beach home located on the beautiful Manasota Key. The shores of the Key are called 'The Gem of the Sun Coast'. So, if you're looking for a relaxing, comfortable and enjoyable stay, rest assured you've found the right place.

The Key is true Florida. Unspoiled by high-rises and high prices. This is why you will find an abundance of shells and prehistoric shark teeth on shore, the highest density of nesting turtles anywhere on the Gulf Coast of Florida, world class bay, ocean and shore fishing. Everyday there is something new to discover.

About our home: The master suite has a king size bed, walk in closet and 2 vanities, shower and tub in the bath. Another outdoor shower is accessible from the master suite. Both bathrooms have hair dryers and the master offers a magnifying mirror. Bedroom #2 has a queen size bed. Bedroom #3 has a full size futon, but can also be used as a study as there is a desk as well. All 3 bedrooms have a 42' cable tv. The living room has a 47' cable tv. All 3 bedrooms have large closets with hangers and laundry bins. Bathroom #2 has a vanity and shower. You will find stainless steel appliances in the kitchen. The refrigerator has a double freezer and an exterior ice/water dispenser. The stove has a double oven. The dishwasher, quiet. The washer and dryer, located near the master, assure that time is not wasted at a laundromat. The home has dependable wifi and all four t.v.'s have extensive cable.

The property sits on a canal with boat dockage and access to both the inter-coastal waterway and the Gulf. There has been a mating pair of Manatees and their baby in the canal as well as a White Egrets nest, for years. There are always fish to watch.

Beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, several sizes of coolers and a few floaty devices are provided.

The large property provides privacy and ample room for recreation. It also provides plenty of room should you have a boat trailer to park.

In addition to the beach that is only steps away, Stump Beach Pass State Park is just a short walk away and offers pristine beaches, ample wildlife and hiking trails.

About Beth Tapprich

This home has been in our family for 60+ years.

We look forward to hearing from you and hopefully reserving your stay at our beautiful Palm View property.

William and Beth

Why Beth Tapprich chose Manasota Key

Location, location, location. Our home is in the highly desirable South end of the Key. Not only on the South end, but located midway between the restaurant/tiki bar/live music area and the serene Stump Beach Pass State Park. Just a short walk to both areas. We have open access to the beach. You do not have to cross private property. Only a few streets on the Key are configured to allow this.

What makes this house unique

This is our home. It is furnished as a home. You will find quality furnishings and amenities. The best part of this home is the advantages of the canal. You don't have to be a boater to enjoy the view of the mangroves, herons, fish and manatees. You can rent a kayak and it will be delivered to the house and picked up. You can launch right from the yard and be in beautiful Lemon Bay paddling with the dolphins in no time. The outdoor shower is great for washing the sand from your feet after a walk on the beach at sunset or for your daily showers. Hot and cold water.

This place is beautiful. Short stroll to the beach, dock out back for small boats. House is basically divided into 3 wings so 3 couples could stay, go to their corners and fight without bothering the others. Beautifully furnished with everything you could need. New appliances in the kitchen and all the beach stuff you could ask for. I honestly hate giving this house such a great review as I don't want to share it. Owners are a joy to work with and very helpful. Clean, pretty, quiet, with great neighbors. Have already put a deposit down for next year. With this location even the dead heat of summer would be enjoyable.

Owner's Response: What a glowing review! We always enjoy hearing what aspects of the house or vacation people enjoyed the most. The thoughtful design of the home is mentioned often. We had a fabulous architect. Just think how great it will be next year when you return and you are then familiar with the area. Beth and Bill

Great place

  • 5 of 5

This house was a great place to stay. Everything was nice and clean. We docked our boat in the canal so all we had to do was get in the boat and take off fishing. We could walk to the beach. Added benfits were the beach chairs and umbrellas that we could use at the beach. The only negative is the steps in the master baedroom and bath, but once you get use to them, it's fine. I would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: It was our pleasure having you all as our guests. We are so happy to hear you wish to return next year. When we renovated and remodeled our home it was necessary to put a step between the bath/walk in closet and bedroom in order to make a master suite. Our guests appreciate the privacy of the suite. Thanks for the care you gave our home. Beth

Exquisite get away retreat

  • 5 of 5

This hidden gem is a perfect get away destination. House is easily located right off the main road into Manasota Key Island. Everything was in great order and ready to recieve guests. Every aspect of this vacation was easy and delivered as represented in the VRBO posting. The owner provided directions,security codes, and once nside a book awaits with All kinds of information to make your stay memorable. The house was clean and decorated in a way that made you feel like you were actually visiting someone's home and not a rental unit where some accommodations are you all want for nothing except more time to stay longer!!

As promised the yard is huge for extra parking of a boat trailer and guests. Water and electric easily assess able next to private canal. Private outdoor shower with hot and cold water was a wonderful treat coming off the water after a long day of fishing. Each bedroom was furnished some of the most comfortable beds I have slept in with soft cool made it difficult getting out of bed in the morning!! We are blessed to lev only 3 hours away and My family will definitely be booking a visit in the near future!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a positive review! You touched on many of the great features of our home. Our boating guests always appreciate the water and electric access as well as the outdoor shower. Actually everyone enjoys that shower when they come off the beach or the water. Our beach going guests always mention how close the beach is and the relaxing accommodations of the home. We look forward to hearing from you again.

Clean, quiet, organized, easy

The owner stays on top of this snug bungalow by the beach--keeps it ship-shape, with everything you might need for a respite by the sea. She is also gracious and instantly responsive to any concerns that may arise. The site accurately reflects what the place

looks like and its proximation to the shore. There are some wonderful environmental preserves in the area to visit. And reading by the canal at sunset with an egret or two for company is pure heaven--especially when it's snowing up north.

Owner's Response: It is helpful to future guests that you spoke of the preserves and parks in the area. Many enjoy the parks, but few write of them. It sometimes feels like you are in a park when lounging by the canal and enjoying the wildlife. I smiled when you called the home a "snug bungalow." That is the feel we are going for...a beachy cottage. In actuality, the home is 1,900 square feet! Thanks for your kind words.

Beautiful home - Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this wonderful home for a week in late October 2013 and found it to be absolutely perfect. Firstly, the location simply could not be better - we could see the Gulf coast beach from the front door and it was no more than a one minute stroll to get there. The owners were thoughtful enough to provide beach chairs, umbrellas, wheeled coolers and beach toys for the kids - very much appreciated. Get to the beach by 10:00am and you are pretty much guaranteed dolphin sightings no more than 30 Metres out to sea. Watching the sun drop into the ocean at the end of the day was transcendent - we would never get tired of watching that. A very private outside shower attached to the rear of the house (hot & cold water) is a work of true genius and makes it so easy to clean off the sand at the end of the day.

There is a private boat dock in the garden (where a couple of herons hung out all morning, fishing right off the dock).

The house itself was extremely well maintained and scrupulously clean - a real credit to the owners. The master bedroom/en-suite/dressing room area looks like it is brand new; likewise the kitchen, which is fitted with every (quality brand) appliance you could possibly need. We particularly liked the way the house had been furnished to the owners personal taste, rather than the very bland generic "furniture packs" so prevalent in the Orlando-area villas we rent - It genuinely felt like a cherished home rather than someone's investment property.

There are a number of good local bars and restaurants within a ten minute walk -"Flounders" was good for early evening drinks / "Lock n Key" had great seafood. A five minute drive away are "Farlows on the Water" (very good steaks), "Englewood Flatbread" (artisan pizzas) and the kids favourite "A Better Scoop" (42 bizarre but tasty flavours of excellent ice cream (try the Salted Caramel or Gator Tracks...).

We rented kayaks from "Allure Boat Rentals" on Beach Road and found them to be very good value. During our 3 hour paddle round the intracoastal waterway and Lemon Bay we saw stingrays, ospreys, a bald eagle, so many different fish, and a dolphin which first came to the surface no more than 3 feet from my sons kayak and then followed us for ten minutes.

All in all, this is the perfect home in the perfect location. We could not have had a better time here and would like to thank the owners for allowing us to share their home for a short while.

Owner's Response: What a thoughtful review. Thank you for sharing your experiences. We too enjoy sitting at the dining table and watching the herons and egrets fish from the dock.
