Wow!! A truly fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned home to England and we would go back to this house tomorrow if we could. This has got to be the best beachfront setting ever, you are just steps away from the clean white sand. The house is very clean and comfortable, with a modern well-equipped kitchen. From the moment the sun comes up to the incredible sunsets across the Gulf this is an idyllic location. The screened porch makes for great dolphin watching and the chance to cool down in the heat of the mid-day sun. The beach is quiet and there's plenty of furniture and room for everyone in the accommodation to eat out in the evenings. We found the other visitors to be really friendly and sociable and watching the sunset became a ritual with an iced drink in hand! We recommend a visit to the nearby state park (a short walk along the beach) and also suggest that you take time to spot manatees from the bridges to the Key. I'm sure that - like us - you'll soon be addicted to collecting fossil shark teeth along the waterline! Nearby there are good restaurants, a pizza delivery service and a great Farmers' Market in Englewood. Thank you Sally for sharing your home with us!

relaxed and rested

  • 5 of 5

We are a married couple who run two businesses with a child in college and one in high school. Not easy to get all four of us together for any length of time. This was perfect.

The screened in porch faces the ocean for a way to get away from the sun yet still feel like you are on the beach.We took our morning coffee and breakfast there and spent many nights just talking and listening to the ocean. Plenty of great places for lunch and dinner within even walking distance. Great place for walks on the pleasant surrounding streets. Close to Sarasota for the Marie Selby Botanical Garden and the Mote Aquirium. Very clean condo with wonderful view and quaint kitchen. We are back in Chicago but feel rejuvinated by the warm air and rest. (Be ready to leave by the checkout time, cleaning staff is there promply at 10:00 a.m.)

Fabulous location, super clean, right on the water.

  • 5 of 5

We were desperate for a getaway and this place was perfect. We should have written this review long ago (we stayed in early December) but better late than never. The unit was immaculately clean. There were enough supplies (coffee filters, spices, paper products, etc.) to get settled in before that first trip to the grocery. Location could not have been better: Right on the water--saw dolphins from the picture window; short walk to Stump Pass S.P.; quick drive into old Englewood for the flea market, great food and old-time feel.

Whatever you do, don't tell your friends about Manasota Key! It is Old Florida for realz, and we hope it stays that way. But if you come, this place is perfect for a couple. --Bob and Vicki

Awesome beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at your beach house. The location is awesome, right on the beach and close to the state park, yet private with the landscaping.

It was close enough to walk 10 minutes into town for meals and the local surf shop. The locals are friendly and helpful, especially the guys at Allure Boat rental. The house was clean, bright, and had all we needed. We hope to return next year!

A little bit of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Loved my stay on Manasota Key! The house was so comfortable and the location is amazing! The view from the living room's picture window was spectacular at any hour of the day! The screened in porch was a plus.

Brought our kayaks and got to sail off from our "backyard" whenever we wanted to. Swam with dolphins and manatees.

Close to Stump Pass on one end, and fun night spots at the other.

Sally was very nice and quick to respond to any questions.

Definitely want to return next year!

Excellent Beach Retreat

  • 5 of 5

View from living room was amazing and screened in porch made sitting out at night comfortable. Location was perfect with a long walk through Stump Pass Park or an evening stroll to dine just out the door. Beds were very comfortable and the people we met there were really friendly. Hope we have an opportunity to return.
