Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic place for a relaxing vacation! My family (3 adults, 1 teenager, and 2 preschoolers) stayed for a week and it was perfect! You literally can just bring your food, a couple outfits, bathsuits, sunscreen, and toiletries and be set for the week. The kitchen had every utinsil needed for cooking family meals. Plenty of space to not feel cramped. A breath taking view inside or outside. If we are back in this part of FL we will definitely look at staying in this home again.

Property and location excellent. Beds, and accommodation were very comfortable, home from home. Fantastic hosts and really helped to make our stay a brilliant experience. Would definitely go again and would like to see the owners again. Many wildlife sightings, including, Manatees, dolphins, tortoise and signs of sea turtles laying eggs. Thanks Eileen and Collum.

Beautiful Beachfront Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week on Manasota Key at this beautiful, comfortable beachfront vacation home. It is was comfortable, clean, quiet and everything a couple could ask for. The owner's were fantastic to work with thorough the process. We hope to return next spring and again next fall. Our only suggestion would be that the refrigerator could use replaced. Otherwise, it was perfect!

Loved it!!

Loved the beach front location, the gorgeous sunsets, hunting for sharks teeth and visiting with Eileen and Collum who were very interesting, accommodating and friendly! Wish we could return next year, but we will remember this vacation as one of our very favorite! Bob & Mickey

By far the best yet. Manasota Beach is the gem of Florida. The owners were wonderful to deal with, your literally within a stone's throw of the water. Great views, nice walks. I would not hesitate to stay there again. We were looking for a laid back area and this is it. If you want busy night life and spring break type atmosphere you need to go somewhere else. I only wish the ice machine was working, but that is my problem as I drink too much on vacation

A Winters Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place! This little gem is located right on the beach. We had some minor concerns that the renters (Colm and Eileen) were located on property and may interfere with our privacy during our stay but to the contrary they were both gracious and respectful. We couldn't have asked for two nicer people to rent from! We had some rough weather the first 4 days of our stay and the steps down to the beach washed away. Colm was immediately repairing them and had them fixed in no time. Many people who visit this area love to hunt for fossil sharks teeth dating back 5 million years. Most are small but some were found as big as your hand! The beach is covered in beautiful shells and hunting for the perfect ones provide endless hours of fun for everyone. While my wife relaxed and enjoyed the quiet surroundings I was there to fish. Although the weather did not cooperate and there were no baitfish to be found I nonetheless gave it my best. To my surprise I caught a boatload of catfish, whiting (some as large as 14") and croaker. I'm sure if the weather was more cooperative many more species would have been available to catch. Eileen has compiled a list of fish caught right in front of the house and they include some of southwest Florida's premiere gamefish such as Snook, Tarpon and Blue Runner. The pictures of the property do not do it justice. The view from the bottom floor is nothing short of breath taking. My wife and I enjoyed the amazing sunsets while dining in the kitchen and out on the patio. The driveway up to the house is completely enclosed from above in a tightly woven tree canopy reminiscent of fairy tales. The place is amazing and quite a value for what's provided. We are already planning our next trip!

Beautiful sandy private beach on the gulf, surrounded by many oak trees, wide variety of wildlife including hawks, osprey, eagles, cardinals to name but a few, turtles and great fishing. The property is located on a barrier island with the inter coastal waterway on one side and the beautiful gulf waters on the other. While you may feel remote and secluded you are only a few miles from a large variety of stores, restaurants, tennis, golf, cinema, art and antique stores, charter boats, fishing guides, jet ski rentals, para sailing etc.
