Overview

Manasota Key Cottage Rental Photos and Description

One short block from the beautiful Gulf of Mexico

This is the one bedroom cottage of a 2-cottage duplex right on Manasota Key - famous for it's white sand and un-crowded beaches.

The location couldn't be better. Pop your beach chairs and umbrella on the provided cart and stroll about 200 yards down lovely Beachcomber Lane to the Gulf beach for swimming, shell and shark-teeth collecting, lazing in the sun....and about the same distance the other way, down Mockingbird St. to the inter-coastal where you can kayak, fish, or watch the activity on the bay.

It is also within walking distance to Stump Pass Park, one of the treasures of Manasota Key.

There are several restaurants and bars within walking distance plus a small variety store, kayak, boat and scooter rental places and beach clothing stores.

The two units are totally private with the very private backyards separated by gorgeous landscaping and each has outdoor dining table & chairs, grill and private hot-tub!

The cottage has a complete kitchen, including fridge, stove, microwave and is equipped with coffee maker, toaster, kettle and full set of dishes, glassware and pots and pans. Linens and beach towels are provided. The cottage is air conditioned and also has fans in each room. Wifi and cable tv are included.

There is a queen size bed in the bedroom, plus a 'pull-out' couch in the living room and a dining table with 4 chairs, plus 2 'bar' chairs at the counter/island. The flooring and kitchen have been renovated in the past 2 years, and everything is freshly painted. All the furniture is new (April/14) and there is 'portable washer/dryer' combination for your convenience.

To see the adjoining cottage, go to vrbo.com, listing # 591806.

The Castaway units can be rented separately or rent both at a discounted rate.

Loved Castaways!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I absolutely loved Castaways! The one-bedroom unit was great for us. It had everything we needed for a great vacation in Florida. Linda, we love your taste in decorating the cottage with a "beachy" feel, and it was great having beach towels provided. Castaways was easy to find from the Sarasota Airport (about 1 hr away), and we were welcomed with a lovely sunset as we arrived on our first night. The cottage was neat and clean, and we were welcomed with a gift basket of wine and coffee to make our first evening and morning memorable.

We decided to do mini-trips each morning (to Englewood Farmers Market on Dearborn St, drove 1/2 hr south to Boca Grande, 1/2 hr north to Venice, stopped at Tervis Tumbler outlet in Osprey, etc.). Then we went to the beach each afternoon. Loved the beach cart! A great way to get all the provided beach essentials the short walk to the beach (2 lawnchairs, beach umbrella, with built-in cup-holders on the beach cart!). It's a great beach for walking and collecting shells...goes on forever in both directions. The water was warm for swimming, and it was exciting to see manatees only a few feet out from shore. We found sharks' teeth, too! It felt good to come "home" to the air-conditioning, with cold drinks in the frig, and hot tub ready if we felt inclined. The bed was comfy, and it was nice having wifi available to post our great vacation pics on facebook every night (so our kids could see what a great time we were having!). We enjoyed the short walk to the mini-mart each morning to get the newspaper. A short drive away, Walmart provided great souvenirs for the grandkids, and beer/wine for us. We shopped for groceries at Publix and Winn-Dixie. Englewood has everything you need! We had a great dinner at Gulf View, and Stump Pass Tiki Hut (down Placida Rd). We saw dolphins in the intracostal off Stamp Pass Park. Our week in Florida flew by too fast, but we loved every minute! Thank you, Linda, for providing everything we needed to make our vacation so amazing.

German Grandkids Nearby

  • 5 of 5

Our granddaughters are visiting Englewood (from Germany) with their parents (who cares about them!!) and we wanted to be near them and provide easy Gulf beach access so they would come see us when we weren't visiting them.

The Castaways cottage was perfect for us! Cozy and inviting with everything we needed for our two week stay in heaven. The beach is beautiful and far enough from the public beach to be uncrowded. Nice restaurants on the beach road and shopping on the mainland which is just 2 miles away. Ringling museum and Selby gardens are just a 40 minute drive north. Owners and property manager are very helpful. We highly recommend the Castaways cottage.
