Why Peter and MaryJo - Owners chose Englewood

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!

Excellent vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful vacation. We really enjoyed the kayaks and bikes and loved that there were enough for all 8 of us. The walking distance to the beach and restaurants was also great. Loved outdoor shower and the enclosed porch. Very comfortable and enjoyable time!

Had a fantastic time!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 adults stayed here August 2017 and we had a wonderful time. We stayed in Suite 5 (Penthouse Suite) which is the whole top floor. We had PLENTY of room to be together and hang out separately. What we loved most was that we only had to bring clothes and food, EVERYTHING else was supplied. The kitchen was fully stocked, they had everything for the grill and even had laundry detergent for the washing machine. The "Toy Box" on the property had chairs, coolers, beach toys, life vests, beach wagons, umbrellas, pretty much anything you would need for a week at the beach. The absolute best part was the free use of the bikes, kayaks and paddleboards. Rentals for those items can get quite expensive for a family of 6 for a week and they were included with the price of our stay! We loved the kayaking so much, we came home and bought our own. Finally, I can't say enough about the Owners, Peter and Mary Jo. They were incredibly nice and helpful whenever we had a question. I would definitely recommend this place and look forward to coming back!!!

Very beautiful. We loved the lanai off the master suite.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. We all loved the paddle boards and kayaks. The only recommendation I would make is to have bicycles for smaller children. Our 7 and 9 year olds were very disappointed that they weren't big enough to ride. Everything else was amazing and we hope to come back soon.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review Heather! Glad you liked all the toys and thought everything was amazing! With so many size children's bikes out there and being so limited on space to park them under shelter in the rainy season, we're just not able to provide them. There's a wonderful bike rental establishment on island that will rent them by the day or week for your convenience. Thanks so much for staying with us! Looking forward to having you all back again soon! Best, Peter & MaryJo

Awesome property!

  • 5 of 5

Great property with everything you need to have a perfect beach experience. 2 blocks away from the beach, and from the canal where you can use the paddle boards or kayaks. It was just perfect! Thank you!!

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 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.
