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

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.

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

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!!

Worth the money...relaxing atmosphere, perfect beach house & beautiful veiws!
  • 5 of 5
Ever think you could walk out your door into a perfect, moonlit FL night and walk a few yards to sit in the silence on the beach, watching a wonder of nature unfold? Well here you can....we DID! Huge sea turtles lumber out of the Gulf onto this beach to lay and bury their eggs each year. It's a truly amazing, in the wild, natural site! Ant that is just ONE of the many things that make this home AMAZING!
This adorable beach house looks even better in person than in these pictures. The owners spared no detail in giving it a true FL Beach House feel. It has everything you need and more. We've stayed here many times and it is always super clean and even well stocked with clean, luxurious beach towels! The location is perfect...one house back from the beach. You walk the equivalent of going next door and you are ON the very quiet, private beach. The beach has perfect shelling, sunning, fishing, playing and relaxing opportunities.
The owners are just a phone call away should you have any problems and are caring, friendly people. I would recommend this property to any couple, family or group. There is plenty of room and you will get a real taste of the FL beach house life walking on the beach at sunrise or sunset, visiting local restaurants or night life, walking to an amazing old light house or taking a drive to any number of area beaches within an hour's drive. Shopping too, is convenient on the key and in the adjoining town.
Give the beach house a try...you won't be sorry. It can easily become a family tradition!

Perfect for much needed R & R!

Perfect for much needed R & R!

The Sandbox was perfect for all of us, including our furry friends. It was very comfortable and had all the amenities of home, and then some. We enjoyed the sand, sun, and surf just a few steps away; or cooled down inside watching the Olympics, playing Scrabble, or reading. The Sandbox and Englewood are great finds and we'll be sure to visit again! Thank you Lisa & Tom for sharing The Sandbox! Don't forget to try the Wine Bistro (behind the boutique), it was another great find!
