About Tom and Lisa Kosterman

We live in Port Charlotte just about 30 minutes away from the house. We own a business in Port Charlotte and have family in Port Charlotte too. We love the outdoors, boating, fishing and just spending the day reading a book on the beach.

Tom and Lisa Kosterman purchased this house in 2006

Why Tom and Lisa Kosterman chose Manasota Key

We vacationed on Manasota Key for many years and always wanted to buy something on the island so we could vacation close to home because of our business and family. We both just love the old Florida feel of Manasota Key with it's layed back personality and also because of the lack of high rises.

What makes this house unique

One great thing is our large fenced private back yard, perfect for animals and family to hang out. Being so close to the beach is amazing and so is the view from our upstairs deck. Since this is our second home it is more like home to our guests and not like a rental. We get comments like that all the time and have many return guests

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at The Sandbox in June 2014. We had a great time, good weather (for June), and thoroughly enjoyed our time on Manasota Key. The Sandbox was well equipped and there was nothing missing that we had to go and buy. Seriously...everything you could possibly need in the home, or for the beach was in abundance. We even added a child's beach chair to the collection before we left as our granddaughter had outgrown it. The hammock on the upstairs patio makes for great sleeping if it is not too hot outside at night. We have stayed at a different house every time we have stayed on manasota Key and this one is by far the best of all of them. We will definitely come back and stay at The Sandbox again.

Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed last summer and enjoyed stay. The house was fully stocked with anything we could have wanted or needed. I still can't get over the master bedroom. Out of all the other homes we have rented in the past, this one was the nicest. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Manasota Key Beach House

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed with our 2 labs this past August of 2014. First time we took our dogs on vacation with us. We all had a great time. It is truly a great place. It is really just steps to the beach! The deck upstairs is great with a view of the gulf. The screened in lanai was also a great place to relax. The house has so much room and is very well equipped. Also more than enough beach towels, beach chairs, etc. The fenced in back yard was very nice for our 2 labs. The outdoor shower was great, so convenient for rinsing off after coming from the beach. The kitchen was equipped with everything you would need. The owners were very kind in answering any questions we had before we arrived. We have booked a stay for next year. Really a great find for us!

Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay. Great kitchen to cook in everything you need is in great supply, I have rented many places and nothing compares to this one. Plenty of towels and linen, you need nothing but your bathing suit to have a great stay. Just steps to the beach. They also have all the beach chairs and rafts that you can use as well. Nice fenced in yard that gives you plenty of privacy. We have already booked our vacation for next year and hope to continue on!

Beautiful House - georgeous beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved the House which is perfectly equipped. Beautiful master bedroom with breath taking view in the gulf. It is really only a few steps to the beach, which is much better than the pictures let one assume.

We stayed there in may and we had the beach almost alone! Awesome!

We saw dolphins several times. Manasota Key is in our opinion much much better than Siesta Key or all the other beaches between Tampa and Ft Myers.

The Sandbox is perfect for one family with kids as one bed in the downstairs bedroom is rather too short for adults.

Washing machine and dryer were working well. A gas grill rather than a smoket Grill would habe been more comfortable - but of course worked.

Summed up - we loved our stay at the Sandbox and hope to come back.

Amazing Experience

  • 5 of 5

My stay at the Sandbox was PHENOMENAL!! I highly recommend ANY time you can, to stay here. So many reasons why that it's hard to compose how I will say all of them!

The owners are very accommodating and just amazing people. The community is rich and absolutely wonderful. The beach is at your feet the moment you step out of the door, what a wonderful feeling! And the house, though steps from pure sand, is still close enough to stores and shops that it's not a hassle to "run to town". During my stay, I was lucky enough to see a large sea turtle, at least 3 feet wide, come ashore and lay eggs on the beach. A few days later, a friendly manatee was swimming along the sand bar and I was able to go up and pet the animal. Such an amazing experience to have nature going on around you. On the 4th of July, I watched fireworks displays to the North, East and South of the tranquil section of Manasota Key where we were. Definitely a view I will NEVER forget. Then, there's the SANDBOX! The beach house really does feel like home. The owners do a GREAT job of making sure that the guest(s) aren't without basic functionary things, and even add on to that feeling with typical household things that some beach house rentals don't offer. The decor is fantastic, the upkeep is top shelf and the backyard is an added and very appreciated bonus. The furniture is high quality, the appliances are equally fine, and the spacious layout will make you feel right at home. No longer the cramped, dull, boring, unimpressive spaces that most other rentals have...go to the SANDBOX! NOW!!
