About Judi or Buddy Brown

We are beach people and have our permanent home in Belleair Beach FL. which is by Clearwater and is quite crowded. We had been to this area in the 1970's and knew we wanted to retire here. The pristine beauty of this place just draws you in, and it hasn't changed much since 1970!

Judi or Buddy Brown purchased this house in 2007

Why Judi or Buddy Brown chose Manasota Key

We love the beach and boating, so this place was the perfect fit! We love the old Florida feel; it is a throw back to the 1970's which the developers have yet to discover.

What makes this house unique

The boating and wildlife here are incredible. We often have manatees in our canal; this year we had a mom and baby hanging out most of the winter. We sit in our living room and watch the dolphin play in Lemon Bay. What could be more relaxing!

Awesome Vacation

  • of 5

House was perfect and exactly as advertised. Came down from Ohio to watch my son play in the Snowbird College Baseball Classic and couldn't have been happier. Beautiful view of Lemon Bay and steps from the Gulf. The house had everything and a Lanai that would knock your socks off! Absolutely perfect! We would stay again in a heartbeat!

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay in this beautiful house. Everything one could possibly need was provided. The owner is very kind and helpful. We fished from the dock and the beach was only a minute walk away. We were also close enough to walk to restaurants. We hope to return.

family trip

  • 5 of 5

took family of 5 to manasota for a week. House was as advertised. Clean and comfortable. Hot tub and grill were nice.Caught catfish and pinfish in canal behind house. Later used the pinfish to catch small Sharks at the beach. Less than 5 minute walk to beach. Lots of shells after a storm. 15 minute walk to 3 restaurants that all have outdoor patio and live music. Overall laid back but you could find excitement at the bars at night with a couple rum runners. recommend for everyone except someone who has trouble with stairs.
