Why Peter and MaryJo - Owners chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

After exploring Florida's Gulf coast for the perfect slice of paradise we kept coming back to the little unknown island called Manasota Key. The perfect mix of peace and quite, nature, and some fun Key West style restaurants just up the road. Anything else you need or want is just off island .

Our home sits on the southern tip of the Island and is right next to Stump Pass State Park. This suite enjoys peekaboo water views of both Lemon bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Come smell the fresh salt air!

Amazing property, better than advertised!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at the Highview and can't wait to go back! The pictures are accurate and the convenience to the beach, advantages of having all the "toys" we needed and the perfectly appointed kitchen and baths is incomparable. We spent our days on the uncrowded beach, nights at fabulous restaurants (Farlow's, Landy's, Lock and Key) close by and finished playing games and cards at the table large enough to seat 8 comfortably. All we needed was food, drink and the sun, all of which were in no short supply! Fabulous grills complete with charcoal, all the bikes, and Tommy Bahama backpack beach chairs and rolling coolers were completely unexpected, but appreciated! Thank you Peter and MaryJo for your hospitality, we're planning our 2017 trip already!

Very nice 2nd floor property. Great for families. Loved the screened porch.

  • 4 of 5

Highview penthouse had everything we needed. Good space for families - kids loved the bunk beds. Plenty of space for separation and togetherness. Kitchen well stocked. The only thing that would have made this better would to have been right on the water.

The penthouse was immaculate when we arrived, well furnished & spacious. Grandchildren enjoyed the toy box, every beach amenity imangible was available. Bike rides, beaches, dolphins, manatees, sunsets and our own charcoal grilling area enhanced our stay, look forward to returning soon.

Great "Suite"!! Perfect Location!!

  • 5 of 5

Peter and MaryJo - The Highview Penthouse was the perfect beach house for our Spring Break. The home is very clean, very well stocked with all of the cooking needs and slept 10 without a problem. We very much enjoyed the grilling station. Thank you for providing and sharing all of the beach chairs, coolers, umbrellas and beach carts. The boys enjoyed the kayaks on Lemon Bay; and the outdoor showers were perfect for them. And we all enjoyed the two decks and screened-in porch. Thank you for sharing your rental with us.

Wonderful 3 bedroom location short walk to beach

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location on Manasota Key. One block off the beach.

Property was clean and definitely well cared for.

Kitchen stocked with necessary items.

3 bedroom, 2 bathrooms. Only down side- One with shower. One with whirlpool tub with shower handle. You can shower outside- which we did on occasion.

Extra items that really add to this space-outdoor showers, the kayaks, paddle boards and the items you need for the beach. Lots of beach towels. We will definitely come back! We hope the foul weather missed you!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Highview was so great. The suite was clean, stocked full of everything you would need and so close to the ocean. Minutes away from kayaking and all supplies included. Great place!

The seclusion of Manasota Key mixed with access to modern conveniences make this a perfect place for just about any vacation.

While here, we like to call special attention to the Key's best kept secret. Stump Pass State Park.

Being just steps away from Stump Pass State Park, the opportunities to enjoy nature are endless. Whether a relaxing beach day on miles of uninhabited coastline is your style, or you'd rather paddle the bay and inlets in our kayaks or on our paddle boards, this is the perfect setting. Every day at Stump Pass is an exciting chance to view nature of all kinds at their finest. Be sure to bring your camera!

Manasota Key is also known for the abundance of shells and shark teeth that can be found with little to no effort. After your done combing the beach just wash off your bounty in one of our shell cleaning stations. These will help you get the sand and salt off your souvenirs so they're ready to take home.

Sunrises, Sunsets, and Star-gazing are spectacular here. Whether it's an active or restful vacation you're looking for, this suite on the South End of Manasota Key provides the perfect location for your vacation.
