Overview

Manasota Key House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Come experience Florida's unique Manasota Key vacation spot and southern hospitality!

You will find our beautiful beach cottage to be tranquil, pristine, and conveniently located between Lemon Bay and the clear waters of the Gulf of Mexico. A perfect location to leave the hustle and bustle of everyday life and to enter a vacation paradise.

With a view of Lemon Bay from the front driveway, you are just a few steps from reaching the neighborhood dock and fishing pier. This is the best place to watch the sun rise in the morning or to catch that big fish. A short walk across the street allows entry, through deeded access, to the quiet sandy beach of the Gulf of Mexico*. A beautiful spot to pick up shells, walk the beach, and to enjoy the most amazing sunsets in the world. A shared picnic and/or a bottle of wine completes

a storybook day!

Our privately owned, three bedroom/two bath, beach home can sleep up to six (6) individuals.

Artfully decorated in a 'Old Florida' beach theme this home offers all of the amenities of home with recent renovations occurring in both the inside and outside. The large, heated, caged, salt water pool and screened lanai adds uniqueness to the property and allows additional outside activities.

Our guests are able to relax in a quiet,peaceful neighborhood but still enjoy local restaurants, shopping, and the public beach, all located within a mile radius.

We believe you have found a vacation paradise! We would love to have you as our guest!

*Please note, due to beach erosion on the island, most private beaches have washed away. Best beaches are public within 1 - 2 miles away.

I have never had a more relaxing vacation. This place was beautiful and secluded. I can't wait to go back. I certainly was not ready to leave. It was like a retreat for us. If you are looking for a fun place to go close to everything, this is your place. I highly recommend it.

awesome place with own private pool

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. It is a beautiful house and location. The beds were very comfortable. The best part was being away from the crowds and the most amazing sunsets. We also enjoyed our own private pool. We went to the beach across the street, to the public beach and to stump pass they were all very nice. If your looking for a beautiful, tranquil retreat and to get away from the crowds then this is the place. I didn't want to leave! The property managers even brought us a homemade key lime pie and we really ejoyed their hospitality.

Pool lovers!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this property. Our favorite part was the screened in, in ground pool. It was very big for a private pool. We enjoyed swimming in the pool after the beach. The scenery of the property by the pool made you feel like you were on your own tropical island. The tide was high most of the time so we spend beach time at 2 of the 4 local beaches. Blind pass was free and close. Manasota Beach was beautiful it is also free. I really liked that they had the covered picnic areas so close to the beach for my family who has a hard time getting around. The sunsets on the deeded access beach across the street were beautiful. We could pop down there after we ate dinner because it is only about a quarter mile away. The house is clean and had everything we needed. We actually brought too much thinking they wouldn't have it. All the neighbors and caretakers were wonderful and helpful and we got some great suggestions for food; Howards in Englewood was fantastic. We loved the screen in lanai and used it often. The beaches were great but the pool was the best. I would definitely recommend this property. The house is really cute and decorated with bright colors. It was very welcoming and we didn't want to leave.

Wonderful Beach Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at this beach home. The home is beautifully furnished and comfortable. We especially enjoyed the lanai and pool. It was a short walk one direction to a dock on Lemon Bay and a short walk the other direction to the Gulf, where we watched the sunset each evening. We rented bicycles for the week, and it was a quick ride to the public beaches and restaurants on the key. We walked beaches, rode bicycles, kayaked, ate great food, and relaxed in this beautiful home. The owners and caretakers provided helpful information and directions, and we were treated to delicious key lime pie from the caretakers. We recommend this property, and we will be back!

Wow!

  • 5 of 5

There was a want for nothing at this great home. We selfishly would want to review it poorly so we could keep it to ourselves;). Gina and Rich have gone above and beyond to make this a most comfortable home away from home and aesthetically pleasing too. The island is quaint with enough liveliness to have nightly entertainment opportunities. It is a great place to beach, walk and bike and, despite below average temperatures, we found plenty to do around the area.

We would not hesitate to rent from these most conscientious owners and thank them for sharing their little piece of heaven!

The perfect Beach house

  • 5 of 5

Manasota Key is a hidden gem on Florida's southwest coast. Beautiful beaches, lot's to see and do. This beach house was the perfect spot to call home during our stay. Just a short stroll from the beach is this beautiful property, where we stayed during Christmas 2013. The home is beautiful! Comfortable beds, breezy beach decor, and an amazing pool out back. Truly all you could ask for. Gina is wonderful to work with, and house is just as you see it in the photos. If you are looking to stay on Manasota Key, your search is over!
