About the property

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,

Great Week on Manasota Key

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, well decorated, clean home and accommodating for three couples. The loft does not provide a lot of privacy but the trundle bed was very comfortable. The steps are steep and your bathroom is downstairs. The house provided everything you would need for pool and beach. The beach near the house is very narrow but walkable at low tide. Englewood Beach is a mile away and Blind Pass just 2 miles. Both very nice. Try Stumph Point Beach and kayaking there. We would recommend this house to friends and family. Pool and Lanai area so much fun. Pepe was available and helpful! Nancy was so nice to work with. White Elephant in downtown Engewood was a good fun restaurant. Farlows on the Water was excellent and just a few miles away. Reservations good to have.

Beautiful house, perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything you need for a relaxing vacation. It is set up for privacy with bedrooms and multiple bathrooms. The center of the house, inside or outside by the pool, is perfect for gatherings of family and friends. The kitchen has everything you need for preparing snacks to gourmet meals. We spent most of our time when not at the beach outside by the pool. The house sits in a quiet residential area, landscaped with tropical foliage that provides additional beauty and privacy.

The beach is located a very short walk from the house, an easy distance to carry chairs and beach toys. While the beach is narrow here it offers enough space to sit and relax and miles of open beach for walking and collecting treasures such as sharks teeth and shells. We swam in the ocean every day and celebrated the sunsets every evening.

The area has multiple public beaches and parks to explore. Just a mile from the house you can find restaurants, water sports and lots of activity. We took a pontoon ride to explore Lemon Bay and observed the wildlife including dolphins, eagles and water birds.

Nancy was the perfect host answering every correspondence within a few minutes and making sure everything went smoothly.

A Week in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful week in a beautifully maintained home inside and out. Located in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance of the beach. We have stayed in many homes, but this one had the nicest pool, yet. There is plenty of room for swimming, laying out, or just sitting and reading a book. Best of all, it is completely private! There is also a nice grill and eating area outside. They have thought of every thing you might need (i.e. pool toys, beach towels, games, DVD's, books, etc.) to make your stay enjoyable. I also liked the laundry facilities that were available to use. All in all the owners have done a remarkable job of making their guests feel welcomed.

We loved our stay in this beautiful home! Nancy, kept in communication with us via email through out our stay. She answered all questions very promptly. Check in was a breeze. When we first saw this home, we knew we made the right choice! The home is furnished well, clean and maintained well. Also, it is decorated beautifully to make you feel at home. The pool was an added bonus! We loved the neighborhood and the quiet beaches. There are restaurants and shopping close to the home. It has everything you need and you really don't need to leave the house! Our family had a great time in this home and we hope we can return soon.
