About owner/manager

My wife and I bought this house in December 2012 to retire to. That's still a ways away. In the meantime, we travel here a few times each year to enjoy the house and all the natural beauty the area has to offer. We want you to do the same!

owner/manager purchased this house in 2012

Why owner/manager chose Manasota Key

Manasota Key is a hidden gem and the location of our house is ideal for enjoying nearby shopping, dining and entertainment while relaxing in the shade of our beautiful gnarled oak trees and taking in sunsets every night on your own private beach! We haven't wasted any time in completely updating the house, including new fixtures, windows, doors, AC system, etc. The exterior has been freshly painted and the property professionally landscaped.

What makes this house unique

Manasota Key is a haven for wildlife- dolphins, manatees, sea turtles, birds and gopher tortoises. A naturalist's dream!

Perfect stay... comfortable place in great area

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 5 days in Rob's house after a road-trip from Montreal with our 2 young kids. It was perfect to rest... quiet and clean place with comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen and nice garden.
The must is the proximity to the beach... no road to cross... just 1 minute to walk and a long beach with mostly only Pelicans.
The plus is that Manasota Key have good places to have coffee, drinks or diner and the stump pass beach state park is wonderful for walking, beaching and kayaking and observing birds/dolphins...

Thanks Rob, it was great time spent there with our family

Paradise!!

  • 5 of 5
First, I must say how awesome Rob and his wife are for sharing their beautiful home with others!!! Their home is truly an amazing vacation spot!

We were only able to stay for 5 nights, but it was the best 5 nights ever!! We couldn't have asked for a better trip...the house was gorgeous and the beach was so close. We enjoyed the beautiful layout of the house, the landscape of the yard and all of the nature surrounding this lovely home. Manasota Key is a beautiful place to visit and Rob and his wife's home made it that much better!!!

I can't wait to come again and stay longer!!!!

Absolutely Perfect in Every Way!!!

  • 5 of 5
You know you are in good hands when the owners are so responsive, flexible and unabashedly proud of their home. They truly want everyone to enjoy it as much as they do. The best part is the property is everything they said it would be. Manasota Key is truly a paradise and we can't wait to come back. The location is amazing!

So here we go. The drive along a winding, tree-lined street builds the anticipation. When you turn into to what seems like an exclusive enclave of wonderful homes you know the pictures from the website do not do it justice. Lush trees with twisting, gnarled trunks provide a canopy for the various flowers and grasses dotting the spacious property.

The house itself is airy and comfortable not to mention clean. Kitchen and bedrooms are immaculate and the sprawling living room just begs to be relaxed in. The row of windows with the picturesque view of the backyard and the lanai were our favorites. Everything you need is at your fingertips, from towels to coffee mugs and even laundry facilities. Truly, a home away from home.

Wait until you see the beach! Go out the front door and follow the private path to the Gulf of Mexico. Yes, it’s that close! We thoroughly enjoyed the beach. True to the owner’s words there were very few people and the ones we did meet were extremely friendly. We took long walks in the morning and enjoyed several wonderful sunsets. No dipping your toes tentatively in the water needed here. Dive right in and see for yourself.

Rob and Tammy, thank you for everything. You were great hosts and Manasota Key is in our hearts. We will definitely be back again next year. This time we will stay much longer.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay, and thank you for such a wonderful review. You mentioned one of my favorite features of the house and property- the huge row of windows along the back overlooking the large, private back yard and woods. I love nature watching from inside! I look forward to having you back next year.

Is there a paradise, so it lies in Manasota keys.

  • 5 of 5
We spent 19 nights in paradise. we have never had such a wonderful vacation ever. The house was wonderful and just a few meters from the beach.
And there was everything one could wish for in the house, full equipped kitchen, wonderful front porch and all the equipment to the beach, garage for the car, good bathroom, comfortable beds, many bath towels yes everything was in the house and large and spacious it was.
The beach was absolutely fabulous! it was several miles long and at most on the beach so it was about 15 people on the whole beach.
We were out in the evening, watching turtles lay eggs, a magical experience.
In the sea we saw manatees, dolphins, rays and we found many shark teeth.
And in the garden, we saw ibis, armadillo and squirrel.
and it was wonderful when we came home from the beach and showering in the outdoor shower.
Thanks Rob for that we have to borrow your lovely house.
We will come back to your paradise again we can promise that.
I have never been so well rested that at this point.
Thanks again Rob.

Everything about this property is great. The location is perfect being just steps to what seems to be your own private beach, heaven! The house is spacious and very well appointed with everything you might need for a comfortable stay. We were there for two weeks and were thrilled to find how quiet and convenient a place we had chosen. Would definitely stay again. Thanks for a REAL vacation.

WE LOVE THIS HOUSE!! Beautifully decorated, all one level. So close to town, yet "away from it all". Walk to the Gulf from your door. Beautiful yard with shady oak trees and flowering tropical plants, and a screen-in lanai overlooking a large private back yard, where we had breakfast in the morning. We already booked again for this summer. You won't be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Jen. My wife and I also have breakfast on the lanai, as the backyard is so nice and quiet. We take pride in maintaining our beautiful trees and native flowering shrubs. Did you notice the mango and lime trees? Come back soon!

Car: recommended

Beautiful tropical island setting just steps from the Gulf of Mexico and breathtaking sunsets every night. Enjoy private beach access right from your door or bike to town for dinner and drinks at night. Watch dolphins, manatee and sea turtles every day, or enjoy world-class fishing and kayaking. Cross the street and enjoy the beautiful views across Lemon Bay and an abundance of bird life.
