About Shelly

We have had great fun renovating and redecorating the property. As an Interior Decorator I wanted the beach house to feel like a real vacation place. A place to put your feet up, relax and read a book after a day at the beach. The kitchen is fully stocked and ready for a quick meal or a memorable gathering.

Shelly purchased this house in 2010

Why Shelly chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

After vacationing on Shore View Drive for more than 10 years, we were offered the opportunity to own our own bit of paradise and jumped right in!! After a stay here you'll understand why we are now owners on Manasota Key! A true vacation awaits us every chance we get. Which with all of our bookings is never enough- Winters in Door County, Wisconsin are beautiful but they are winters none the less.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stayed for a week and loved the location. Great to have the beach across the quiet street -needed to be in the water to cool off and enjoy the sun. Everything we needed was there. Owners are making great changes and can't wait to see it all done! Love the new Florida Beach Bungalow colors and look.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This house is the cutest I have ever stayed in. There is everything you could possibly need. Just pack your clothes and toothbrush. We always pack all of our beach stuff but it was a waste of my time because they have a whole shed of organized and new beach chairs, boogie boards, pales, umbrellas, etc... I was concerned about crossing a road to the beach because I have children, but it is nothing like I thought. It's like crossing a residential street, it was no bother at all. And getting to the beach was a piece of cake! I couldn't believe how close it was. The kitchen is fully stocked, but I don't cook on vacation! We ate at the White Elephant Pub which is covered outdoor seating on the bay side. It's loud with live music and fans. Perfect to take the kids during the day. Best pina coladas of the whole weekend. Ate at Gulf View restaurant. A little bit upscale with a wall of glass for your viewing pleasure. And we also ate at Lock n Key. Indoor and outdoor dining. Younger people outside, older inside. The house is so close to everything for convenience but the way it is situated makes it feel private. We loved the outdoor shower and my kids couldn't get enough of the sun room. Personally I adored the interior decorations of the house. This house is a great deal and we look forward to returning for a longer trip.

Comfortable Clean Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My two sisters,and my niece, stayed here the first week in August of this year. We had a great time! This cottage is clean, cozy and had everything we could have possibly needed. What a wonderful location. The beach is beautiful and it was so nice having Stump Pass State Park within walking distance. We all walked to the end of Stump Pass. We saw a group of 6 Manatees there; so cool. We had two dogs with us and they enjoyed there swims in the cool Gulf waters. Will definitely keep this on the places to return to list. 😃

Great cottage in a wonderful area!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our July stay at the cottage. VERY comfortable for our four adults (one senior) and two older teenagers! Plenty of towels and other necessities, loads of information about Manasota Key and the Englewood area. If one daughter wasn't in the Lanai room reading or napping the other daughter was there talking to her boyfriend. When we weren't on the beach we spent a lot of time under the carport relaxing where Shelly has a table and numerous chairs and when she says "150 steps to the beach" she's not kidding. Wonderful shelling and shark tooth searching and we watched more than one storm roll in (very quickly)! Saw a dolphin swimming around in the intercoastal one day which was fun. Shelly is very helpful and communicative! We would highly recommend this clean, affordable cottage! We hope our future travels are this enjoyable!

Great winter cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed February and March 2015 and really enjoyed it. Plenty of room and everything you need for your stay. We loved the outside patio and having a gas grill. This was our second winter in the area and we love the area. It quiet, quaint and close to the beach. Also close enough to other places for sighting and my husband loves fishing in the area.

Darling Florida cottage

  • 5 of 5

The Shells on the Beach cottage had everything our family of 5 needed for the week. The kitchen was stocked with everything needed to prepare meals and we enjoyed eating most meals at the outside table. There were plenty of beach supplies for the kids which was wonderful. We had planned a few day trips around the area but we all ended up loving Manasota Key so much we really never left! We enjoyed shelling, finding tons of sharks teeth, kayaking with dolphins, and watching the sunset every night. The restaurants were fairly pricey in the area so we bought a lot of seafood from a guy at a stand right over the bridge to Manasota Key - it was better than the restaurants! Shelly was very easy to work with and responded to questions quickly. Would definitely stay again!
