1,200 sq/ft House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6)
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 Englewood
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.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Cute, well stocked, clean home. Great location with the beach within 100 yards or less. Loved this place!
The Best of the Best
We have rented several beach properties over the years but Shells by the Beach has been by far the absolute BEST! The house had everything we needed and a lot more. The kitchen is fully stocked with every pan or utensil you can think of and lots of dishes and glasses! A perfect 3 season room for relaxing over morning coffee/breakfast and late dinners. The 'carport' was great for evening cocktails or just sitting in and relaxing after a busy beach day. The cottage is completely updated and very comfy. There is everything you need for beaching it too...beach chairs, umbrellas, kids "stuff" and more. The location is great too...a quiet end of the Key near Stump Pass. I could go on and on but just read all the previous reviews...they are all spot on! Thank you Shelly for making your home so special and we look forward to returning next year!
Great Beach Getaway!
Adorable cottage with everything included in laid back beach area. Spend the day walking,boating, biking or seashell and shark tooth hunting. Then come back to this cozy cottage for a dinner and relaxing. Plenty of great local restaurants close by as well if you prefer. Highly recommend!
Best family vacation. EVER!
We won a weeks stay at Shells by the Beach in a fundraiser. It was the perfect place for our family to call home for a week! We brought our two daughters (ages 15 and 12) and were so excited that they'd have a room of their own for the week. Everything was perfect! The house had everything we could have wanted- fully stocked kitchen, great 3 season room for early morning coffee and breakfast, great "ourport" for evening cocktails after watching the sunset, comfortable beds and everything you could ever need for the beach! We spent the week walking the beach, collecting shells and sharks teeth, eating at the great local restaurants, swimming in the ocean, watching dolphins (both while we were swimming and on our dolphin tour), and most importantly, relaxing! The house is beautifully decorated and it didn't take us long to "feel right at home". Thank you so much for making our family vacation such a wonderful memory!
Great place to stay.
It a very nice cottage and very close to the beach. My only problem was knowing that hurricane Irma was on the way cut my stay short.
All in all a very nice place with great restaurants nearby.
Cute, Comfortable & Convenient Beach Cottage
We had such a great time staying in this adorable cottage. It's perfectly situated across the beach and down the street from the state park. It's super convenient and we loved everything this island had to offer! Tons of shells, sharks tooth, kayaking and sunsets. We brought our French bulldog and she had a great time as well. FYI, the sun room and half bath are unusable because it doesn't have air conditioning but it wasn't a big deal. Thanks for the unforgettable family memories :)
