David L. Evans purchased this house in 2016

Why David L. Evans chose Englewood

Beautiful Manasota Key is located in an unspoiled part of Florida situated directly on Florida's Gulf of Mexico coast. It provides a peaceful blend of nature with easy access to shopping, golf courses and restaurant choices.

What makes this house unique

Outdoor/indoor living featuring direct access to the beach with a western facing view of the Gulf of Mexico and awesome tropical sunsets. The outdoor enclosed shower under a mangrove canopy is exquisitely relaxing with room to share.

Our beach home is located on private property at the end of a residential street situated among private homes. Privacy is the key word and our home provides endless enjoyment without interference of close, loud neighbors that you would experience renting in a condo or room at a hotel facility.

Dish TV service is provided in all bedrooms with Hopper DVD movies (HBO/Starz/Cinemax/Blockbuster TV) accessible from the living area television.

A piece of Heaven on Earth!!

  • 5 of 5

This is my first online review. I was so impressed with this property that I had to leave a review. It was exactly as pictured. The shelling on beach was better then Sanibel Island. For the first time hunted shark teeth and found plenty. We watched dolphins from the front steps. Beach was not over crowded at all. Home was very clean and well taken care of. Kitchen fully stocked with all appliances and plenty of beach items to use. If you are looking for a "RELAXING" stay on the beach this is the home I would recommended for you.

We had a fantastic week. The proximity of the property to the beach is amazing.

I highly recommend this property. The owners are great to work with. We have small children. It was perfect for them to go back and forth from the beach to the house. We enjoyed shelling, searching for shark teeth, and visiting with the turtle patrol each day.

Amazing views and amazing house

  • 5 of 5

The Beach House is a wonderful vacation home. We always stay beachfront but have never seen a house so close to the sand! The house was very comfortable and so well equipped with everything we needed to have a relaxing and carefree vacation. Many beach supplies in the shed. The screen porch was a great spot in the evenings. The view from the kitchen windows was amazing! The house is very well cared for. Beautiful sunsets and we watched 2 turtles lay their eggs, one right in front of the house. A truly amazing vacation!

Beach House Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Four wonderful weeks: our 6th or 7th Beach House visit.

Heaven-on-earth, sunsets produce a hush,

Each one painted with God's own brush.

With Gulf waters panoramic scene

My soul and body are serene.

Peace and tranquility they bring

As leisure reigns from the tiki swing.

Want to compare? Don't even bother!

This Beach House is like none other.

Want to leave it? Never! Never!

We'd like to stay forever.

Perfect Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better vacation home. I have been renting from vrbo for years now and this has been one the best properties we've stayed in. You cannot beat the location! Manasota Key is beautiful. The house has everything you need and felt very homey. The sunsets were the highlight of the day. When I rented this house, it was in the process of being sold to the new owners. I was a little worried but David was very welcoming and answered all my emails right away. We got a beautiful hand written thank you card with our deposit promptly after our stay. To our surprise, David also sent us a holiday card. This was so thoughtful and shows how he cares for the guests that stay at his beautiful home. Do not hesitate on renting this property. You will not be disappointed.

This is our third stay here and once again we weren't disappointed. The house is very comfortable and the location is perfect! It has all the amenities you would need at the beach and it's really close to everything. We just love this place and can't wait 'til next fall to return. There's nothing like waking up to the most awesome views ever!!
