Florida South Central Gulf Coast House Rental Photos and Description

Private Home: 2 master suites plus bonus loft, 3 full baths heated pool sleeps 6

With only 150 steps to the Gulf's azure sea, you will reset and restore your soul. Your vacation will be all about relaxation and being grateful for the day.

This beautiful island home features a resort style floor plan. It has a main building with master bedroom, en suite (double sink) bath, a loft style bedroom, a second bath, fully equipped kitchen, dining area and living room. Across the lanai (pool area), you will find another buliding with the second master bedroom & en suite bath.

Although the lovely beaches and nearby attractions are a very strong draw, you may decide to spend your time thoroughly enjoying the comfort of this inviting home. Its' high ceilings & feeling of spaciousness, the refreshing crystal clear heated pool and just about every creature comfort will put you at ease and possibly convince you to remain at the house for the day and consider the next day 'a beach day.'

Why Manasota Key?: Being from Rhode Island, the ocean state, my family and I have come to develop the need to be near the water. We had heard about Englewood through a friend and decided to look into this place that was described as being 'Old Florida.' The thought of finding an ideal place to vacation and eventually reside was enticing. After just one visit, we knew this island was what we'd been looking for for years. The beautiful, unspoiled surroundings and very friendly locals all played a part in our decision to become Gulf residents.

It didn't take long before we found this beautiful house close to the Gulf waters in March of 2011. This home has a feeling to it that needs to be experienced to understand. If a house could have a heart and soul, you would want this house to be your best friend. I hope you find the time to come to the water and relax.

All the best to you,

Wonderful vacation home

  • 4 of 5

This house worked out great for our family vacation. My parents joined us on this trip and it was very nice for them to have their own space in the guest house. The screened in pool area was perfect. One day it rained and we sat under the covered area and were still able to be outside. Plenty of pool toys and my son had a blast swimming constantly. It helped that the pool was heated so we all used it. The house had all of our needs...wi-fi, cable TV, space for 5 people, kitchen utensils etc, grill, and privacy. Our only disappointment was that the beach was gone. The waves came right up to the rock wall and we had to walk in the water, even at low tide, to get to beach you could sit on. We had to pack up the car and drive to the public beach. Our intent was to have a house steps from the beach, not a car ride. Possibly this beach area is better at certain times of the year, but it appeared with the presence of a rock wall and steps to get down to the beach that its fairly normal for that area. It was difficult for my parents to navigate the steps and then walking in the water with crashing waves so they were not able to use the beach. The house is fabulous and the owners were wonderful to work with, just don't plan on walking down to he beach with a chair or towel to sit.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed this beautiful home! The house was very clean and was packed with up-to-date appliances. We split our time daily between the wonderful private pool and all the nearby beaches. Fishing was great in the gulf, just steps away! We would stay here again without hesitation!

Very enjoyable stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay. The house worked perfectly for our family. The rooms had plenty of room for us to spread out. Having our own personal pool was a blast. I grew up with a pool and remember all the hard work. It was a joy to watch the self cleaning vacuum. The house is centrally located. The furnishings appear to be very new and all appliances were in good working order. My wife is very picky about where we stay and can honestly say she had no complaints. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again

A Little Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We loved our Manasota Key vacation and thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful home located in a non-touristy, quiet residential neighborhood, just a quick stroll from the private beach access. The landscaping is lush, and we especially enjoyed the blooming plants. The house is better than the website description, the layout perfect for two or three couples, and well stocked with everything one could need from kitchen utensils to pool toys,beach towels and chairs. The house is clean and well-maintained, with the helpful property manager across the street to answer any question. We enjoyed the screened in pool area from breakfast till evening cocktails. Manasota Key has 4 beautiful beaches, breathtaking sunsets, and fun restaurants. The many attractions in nearby Sarasota are an easy day trip. Plenty of supermarkets, restaurants, and shopping in Engelwood, just a few minutes away. We definitely recommend this property to all those looking for peace and quiet, rest and relaxation. We are already planning our return trip!
