Manasota Key House Rental Photos and Description
House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Are you looking for the perfect beach house hide-a-way on a tropical island with your own deserted beach; a beach house and beach so private and secluded that you are likely to see more dolphins than people? Do you dream of a beach that is littered with shells and fossilized sharks teeth, where you can watch one magnificent sunset after another? Then we have your dream come true.

Our beach house is on a secluded beach that makes up the barrier island of Manasota Key. Our beach is a very quiet beach. The entire island is a conservation area. You can often sit for hours and not see even another person. The sand is covered with gorgeous shells and numerous sharks’ teeth. About 20 feet off shore is one of the few Florida West Coast Reefs in just a few feet of water; perfect for snorkeling and fishing. There are abundant tropical and game fish. Yet you are just a 10 minute drive back to the main land for restaurants and stores.

We have two screened porches; one right on the beach, perfect for watching enchanting sunsets while dolphins play in the waves. The other screened porch is attached to our house, about 100 feet back from the beach, for barbecue and relaxing. Between the sand and our beach house is our private backyard filled with numerous tall palm trees. The house has new appliances including a Sub-Zero refrigerator, three TVs, and cable TV and high speed cable internet, with Wi-Fi and laser printer for you to access with your own computer. Each bedroom and the living room have stereos that accept ipods and MP3 players. Golf, tennis, restaurants, and shopping are only minutes away on the mainland.

Board games, puzzles and X-Box and games provided for the kids to play.

My family and I are water and beach lovers. We enjoy SCUBA diving, boating, wake boarding and jet skiing. When we get tired we just sit back and enjoy the sunset.

Mark & Michele Lipman purchased this house in 2002

We bought this cottage because of its quiet and secluded location away from all of the hustle and bustle. We were looking for a beach that we could just sit back and read a book and feel like the whole world is ours. No body to disturb us.

We enjoy our cute cottage. It has everything we need to enjoy our selves and relax. When we arrive at our cottage we can take off our watches and set our internal clocks to island time. We collect shark's teeth. We go out on the boat. We bar-b-que with friends. It is a total paradise.

A piece of paradise..! The screend porch at the water's edge -- perfect for sunsets. Quiet, private - like your own private beach (our visit was in early October). Shelling, snorkeling, swimming, wandering along the beach.. a true getaway with everything you could need or want.

What can we say-- it doesn't get much better than this. The view and privacy was great! This is just what we needed, alot of R&R. Snorkling, shark teeth and shell collecting was enjoyable. Thank you so much for letting us experience this little piece of heaven!

We all had a great time the week we were here! The kids went swimming, snorkleing and fishing. We all collected shells and lots of sharks' teeth. We also visited the public beach one day. We spent one day shopping in Venice and one day in Boca Grande looking at the BIG lizards and lighthouse. We enjoyed the food and the view at the Gulfview Grill. Thanks for letting us stay!

We have visited most of the east coast and west coast beaches. Manasota Key is by far our favorite beach. Everyone should get to experience this island paradise at least once in their lifetime. Thank God for this beautiful place. There are very few places left like it. We will return here again.
