Amazing family vacation on the gulf and bay
Our family vacation was wonderful from the moment we woke up to walk on the beach and gather seashells and shark teeth. My daughter-in-law and I spent our days on the beach with the two grand daughters while my husband and our son went fishing and crabbing from the dock on the bay. Caught lots of blue crabs and they were delicious! Property is clean and in good condition, no evidence of any hurricane damage at all. Kitchen is amazing, well stocked with everything needed to cook for a family. Great room has plenty of comfortable furniture for everyone to sit and watch TV together. Wi-Fi worked well. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms allowed for plenty of room for everyone, even had a port-a-crib for the baby. Outdoor shower was great for cleaning up after spending the day on the beach. Nice sandy beach and the water temperature was perfect for swimming. Sunsets were spectacular to watch, even had dolphins to watch as the sunset. We couldn't ask for a better spot to enjoy a family vacation.
We love making people happy. Bill
WE KNOW U DO AN U DO A GREAT JOB OF IT FOR SURE BETWEEN U AN DEB U GOT RIGHT AS RAIN.
Great location, and the house was very clean and well looked after. The family all loved the beach, the warm water, the patio, and the sunsets and sunrises. As an added bonus, the fireworks for July 4th were spectacular and we watched from the dock with an amazing unobstructed view!
Our only wish is we could have stayed longer!
I have owned the beach house for 17 years. Worked to make everything First Class. Thanks
Didn't want to leave!!
Loved this place! Had everything we needed, 2 grandson's kept busy playing in the water, fishing, chasing crabs. Beautiful sunsets! We got lucky and saw a female turtle laying eggs and actually had 3 hatches during the week we were there. Once in a lifetime experience! We will never forget it! Chartered a fishing trip and my 9 year old grandson caught a 40" snook. This area is not a tourist trap, very relaxing but still all the amenities you need. I would highly recommend it!
Thank you. After 17 years we work hard to Insure you love everything about our beach to bay property
Awesome vacation werk
Great location, house was very clean and had everything you need. Very family friendly house and surrounding areas. Would definitely rent again next year. We have also already recommended to others.
We have Rave reviews. From a pro football hall of Famer to every one who has rented this year. A couple who rented the first week of February. Has rented two weeks in June and cannot wait to return. Bill the owner
This was our second visit to Manasota Key and this property. It felt like we were home again ! The house, furnishings, outdoor areas, and sunsets were fabulous and well maintained. With access to the bay in front of the house and the Gulf of Mexico behind us, we had the best of both worlds. The home was very clean and had plenty of linens. The kitchen was well stocked with additional small appliances. The grill cooked our fish very well and the fire pit was so cozy ! It was awesome being able keep the boat across the street in the private slip with a lift and fish from the dock.
It's difficult to find a FL place that checks all the boxes...just steps from the beach , bay access, dock included, ample trailer parking, accepts pets upon approval, and has awesome views. Mr. Morris took very good care of us !
Fun family time for everyone!
From the moment we walked through the door, we were mesmerized by the aqua ocean, which is just steps from the back door and can be seen from everywhere in the house. The home was excellent for me, my husband, my disabled father, and our two teenage sons.
THE RIVER: This property is so unique because it's "ocean to river", which really appealed to my family because my two teenage sons love to fish. They used the kayak on property, and we also brought our paddle boards, and we were on that river every day.
THE OCEAN: it was a beautiful aqua blue every day, and to be able to walk out the back door just a few steps and enjoy the ocean, the view, the breeze, was so relaxing. Mr. Morris kindly let us bring our dog, and he had the week of his life, romping around on Manasota Key beach! And searching for prehistoric sharks teeth right on the beach was an added bonus of fun!
THE HOUSE: The great room and kitchen are so spacious. Yes, the house is a little dated, but everything was clean and comfortable, and the house has everything you could think of, from Tupperware to laundry detergent, and every outdoor toy you'd need, like chairs, kayak, boogie boards, etc. My dad is disabled and he got around great.
It was a great week and just the relaxing family time we needed.
