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.

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 :)
Wonderful location and perfect cottage!!!
We absolutely loved our stay in Englewood! The beach was so close to the cottage and the weather was beautiful. There were many opportunities to enjoy wildlife whether it was while hiking at Stump Pass State Park, kayaking, or just swimming in the Gulf. We saw manatees and dolphins several times, along with osprey and many species of birds. There were many great places to eat within walking distance and we took an amazing boat ride on Lemon Bay! Shelly was so helpful with anything we needed and provides all the accommodations to make your stay relaxing!! Highly recommend!!!
Beautiful beach property. Can't think of a thing that we needed that wasn't there.
We spent the month of April 2017at this beautiful cottage. Right from when you walk through the door the colours are just beautiful from the wall colours to furniture and artwork. Not to mention that the gulf is right across the street so at night with the bedroom windows opened you can hear the waves on the beach. All the bedding is first class and the king size bed in the master bedroom is incredibly comfortable.
It is close to all the restaurants on the Key so you can walk to them. Stump Pass is a must see and a kayak ride in Lemon Bay is also a wonderful experience.
Loved the outdoor shower and the bikes were a nice addition to the property. All in all we were very happy at Shells By The Beach.
Lovely house in a beautiful place
We had a wonderful time in the cottage on Manasota Key, that had everything and more you could need to feel at home...so nicely decorated and the location was ideal. You won't be sorry if you stay here!
