About Scott

I have been here since 1995 and take pride in my families home to not only keep it in great shape and nice than other properties but I keep improving it every year to make it better. If you want to know more about me personally lets visit. I like to get to know my guest and they like to come back that's why I have 36% repeat business this year

Scott purchased this house in 2004

Why Scott chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

A little about the house and the guest cottage, it is our family home and they sit independent on a large double lot and are in a excellent location being 150 ft from beach. It is very private and unique because of the location and all of the landscaping. We purchased the house a few years ago from a local artist who had it for 32 years. It is a rare find on the key because of it's quite location in a residential neighborhood as well as its 2 lots give you lots of open area with botanical gardens making you feel like your in you own private beach compound. It is located 1/2 mile from the state park and 3/4 of a mile from the restaurants and shops, and the best part it sits 150 ft from the front door to the private beach!

Since this is our family vacation home you will find it's like being in a friend’s home not a hotel. The home has also been completely redone including kitchen and bath. You will find everything you will need with the exception of a beach towel and your clothes. We have WIFI and cable TV. You can see more pictures and reviews at the following site.

What makes this house unique

Location! Location! Location! no busy roads to cross like most other places and we are a family home!

Guestbook comments from the owner

From Trip Advisor Reviews: The home was very comfortable, spacious and well equipped. We had our 2 grandchildren with us and the space worked very well. The closeness to the beach was great - just a short walk and a great section of beach. It was close to restaurants and shopping yet a quiet neighborhood..........We would certainly come back if we get the opportunity!

We chose a staycation this year.

  • 5 of 5

This home is clean and well kept. The owner did an excellent job remodeling and landscaping the property. The ac kept the home comfortable and the accommodations are better than listed. We barely heard any of the outside noise so it was very relaxing. We slept better here than at home. Not being on the beach has its advantages when you have had too much sun and need a break. We were here for the fourth of July fireworks. They were the best we have ever experienced, no fighting traffic to get back after. The boys just kept saying wow, awe, yay. There was a fireworks war on each side of us. The boys adopted one group as their own. The privacy of the beach is a plus, there is always a great spot to enjoy. We found sand dollars and small conch snails. Sting rays were jumping out of the water, dolphins, sea turtles, lots of shells and sharks teeth. There are great restaurants and night life to enjoy or just cook burgers on the grill. We have been to the public beaches here, this was the best experience by far. I will definitely recommended this to friends and family.

Amazing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4, well 5 if you count our boxer have stayed here now for the 2ND year. It's only steps to the beach, awesome amenities, everything you need and more. The pool table and big roomy 3 bedroom house are fully stocked and it's super clean and nicely decorated. Scott is great stuff, we're house renting friends lol. I didn't want to leave and will definitely be back next year, if not sooner. Take a rod and reel and grab your dinner, my son fished non stop! The shelling, the sharks teeth, the walks and the waves are memories to remember.

Our home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this rental for the last two years, since we have been coming to Manasota Key. This place is truly our home away from home. Scott is fantastic, and is always updating the property. We have become friends with the neighbors, and always look forward to coming back to see everyone.

The home is very comfortable and open. No need to bring a thing, as Scott has stocked the home with everything you need. If you like to fish, bring your rod and tackle, as you are going to be around some wonderful places to fish.

We cant wait to come back next year! Thank you Scott.

Fantastic vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We brought a group of 6 adults and had a blast at this property. It was immaculate and up to date in every way. Everything we needed for the house or the beach was right at our fingertips. It was private, but close enough to enjoy the local restaurants and shops. We would highly recommend this piece of paradise!

Piece of Beach Heaven

  • 5 of 5

What can I say? Perfect comes close! We stayed in the guest cottage which was plenty big enough for 2 (sleeps 4 with 1 bdrm and a sofa bed) and had pretty much all we needed. It was clean and well stocked and very nicely and comfortably furnished. The grounds around the house are beautifully peaceful in themselves. To get up and have that first cup of coffee lounging in that park-like setting was ideal! Then, just a matter of steps to the beach! Manasota Key has the best beaches here in SW FL. I live here and these are our favorites! Plenty of shells, sharks' teeth, and beach to explore. I very much enjoyed the walk down to Stump Pass, a state park to the south (left), and back again. In October, the water was clear and refreshing! The sunsets were simply AMAZING, with a peaceful gathering every evening closing out the day. Bring a couple of chairs and your camera! Scott does have a few beach things in the shed for use, chairs, rafts, buckets, noodles, that come in handy. The neighborhood is quiet and just off the rush of the main road. Shopping, restaurants and nightlife is just up the road. Whatever you're looking for, it's there! With a folder full of suggestions in the cottage, left by Scott and friends, you have plenty of dining to chose from. Everything from pizza to fine dining and a few tropical drinks! Scott was very accommodating and I envy him having this place of his own. I look forward to hopefully making this an annual staycation with everything this beach house vacation has to offer! Thank you Scott for sharing your piece of heaven!

Beach House

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my sister and a friend in June 2015. The area is wonderful with many activities to choose from, however we spent most of our time on the beach which is just a short walking distance to the home. The accommodations were more than adequate with lots of space. Quiet neighborhood and easy access to all the area has to offer!

Contact me direct I do not accept any offers to book from VRBO. I only with rent you my home after we e mail or speak I like to know who is in my house. Thank You

Contact owner on payment option. I like to speak with who is staying in my home and know who they are before I book. I will not give that choice to VRBO to decide who is in my house even if it lowers my rating which is because they want to make a percentage to book on top of my advertising fee. Want to stay at the nicest house on Manasota Key and deal 1 on 1 with the owner this is the place!
