Phil and I (Rhonda) live in Sarasota -- just 40 minutes away. We inherited this 'perfect spot' from Phil's folks. While we take care of the house and the bookings, we use a local management company (right on the Key) to arrange for the details so that guests can get immediate attention. We love to spend long weekends at the house floating in the pool and watching sunset on the beach.

This home has been in our family for 30 years. It has seen its share of wonderful family gatherings as well as quiet beach getaways. Our friends love visiting the house, telling us that it feels as if they are out of the country -- some exotic tropical island.
Rental agreements, deposits and payments are handled by a management company located right on Manasota Key. The advantage is that they are available to serve your needs throughout your visit. This is one of the major reasons we do not subscribe to VRBO's online payment system. We would rather go with the personal touch that comes with local service.
This was our third year as a snowbird and our second year in this great house. We have been spoiled by staying here. The location is wonderful. Love the heated pool and being able to walk across the street to the private beach access. Last year we explored, this year we relaxed. Great place for that. Looking forward to next year! Thanks to the wonderful owners.
We rented this property for the month of December 2014. It was just perfect for our family of five. Although we could have rented a bigger, newer home further from the beach, we are so glad we chose this home. The private beach access allowed us to enjoy a practically empty beach most days and amazing sunsets every single night without the hassle of packing everyone up and driving to the beach. Thanks for a wonderful month in your beach home!
If you want to get away and relax, this is the place the do it. In a very attractive setting, this house is spacious, comfortable, and well-kept. Its openness is ideal for lounging, entertaining, or treating the family to a home away from home only steps from the beach. The large upper deck offers a place to grill and to dine al fresco with both friends and/or family. The very large pool beckons water lovers and is a welcome complement to the nearby Gulf. The tree-canopied road on which the house sits is an open invitation to bicycle riders. There are plenty of restaurants (especially, the Gulf View Grill and the Lock and Key Restaurant) and other amenities nearby. The place is a perfect prescription for anyone who needs to escape, for a time, the hassles and the humdrum of everydayness.
We have recommended this property to friends from France and well as from closer to home, and we would do so again without reservation. The owners make one and all feel more than welcome.
We rented this property in May and August. BOTH times we thoroughly enjoyed the spacious home. The private beach is close by and surf fishing was great! The outdoor shower was perfect and the pool was so relaxing. We found everything we needed in this home, it has covered parking, and a large second story deck where we enjoyed grilling, eating outdoors, and hearing the surf. We think the week went by way too fast!
This was the perfect getaway for my family. The private beach was awesome. We watched the sun set every night. We rode bikes up to the local bars and shops. the house is roomy and clean, with everything you need. great place to stay!!!
Our family of 5 spent a week here and didn't want to leave! It was a quick and easy walk to the beach. The beach is for area residents only so we practically had the place to ourselves. Shark teeth could be found everywhere - final tally for the kids was 256! The house had plenty of sand/beach chairs, coolers, towels and some digging toys. We even left a beach umbrella behind for the next renters. Sunset walks were amazing! We used the pool and outdoor shower daily.
Phil kindly greeted us on arrival and gave us a quick tour. The house is more spacious than the photos. Though we weren't in the house much, we had plenty of room to spread out. The kitchen was fully equipped and the gas grill and porch were a nice bonus.
The location is on a beautiful, quiet stretch of Manasota Key. Our daily running route was shady and cool and included an unobstructed view of the Gulf for about a 1/2 mile. Saw lots of bicyclists, too.
Sorry...we forgot to sign the guest book!! The kids reminded me as we were pulling away. But we had a great time. Thank you!!
It is only a 40 minute drive to downtown Sarasota where you can experience the cultural capital of Florida -- theater, dance, touring shows, opera, symphony... Plus, fabulous shopping and dining at top notch restaurants.View the satellite image of this location at Google Maps: 6111 Manasota Key Rd, Englewood FL 34223.
Closer to Manasota Key there is kayaking, fishing, bird and dolphin watching. A charming downtown area with antique shops and restaurants.
The beauty of Manasota Key is that it is close to everything yet apart from it all. The Key is natural and pristine. No hotels on the beach -- just nature at its best.
