Why Peter and MaryJo - Owners chose Englewood

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 most tip of the Island and is next to Stump Pass State Park. Come smell the fresh salt air!

We couldn't have had a better place!
My wife, adult daughter and I stayed at Highview #2 from 3/4/17-3/12/17 and it was a wonderful experience. We have stayed at many places on Manasota Key over the years and this was one of the best!
The one bedroom unit was spacious, updated, very clean and it was supplied with anything you would need for your stay. The private back patio was very nice and was used daily. We were very impressed with all of the amenities from bikes, coolers, kayaks, towels and just about anything you would need to have fun. Peter was very responsive with a few email questions that I asked him while there and the whole rental process was very well run. I would highly recommend Highview for anyone looking for a carefree vacation destination!
Thanks so much John. It was a pleasure having your family stay with us. Looking forward to having you back again soon!

We went kayaking it was beautiful, walked down to Stump Pass park walked the trails and beach. It is a gem!!! We visited some of the area parks...Everglades, Hickory Creek Mitigation Park walked trails here, went to see the mantises, Jetty Beach saw some surfers so cool!! And the Myakka River State Park walked the trails here also. Loved this place rental. Would recommend for anyone any age! Thank you for renting this nice place and all the toys you make available for us to use!!!
Thanks for the wonderful review! So glad you enjoyed your stay and thanks for shearing some great local ideas of things to do. Hope to have you back again soon!
Stump Pass Vacation
We enjoyed our recent stay at Stump Pass and all the special amenities offered. The accommodations were excellent and very clean. The area had a lot of things to do with the different beaches, fishing,shopping, dining, and the great weather. We would highly recommend this place to anybody.
Thanks so much for staying with us John. It was a pleasure having you both as our guests. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to having you back again soon!
Great place to relax and enjoy the beauty of natural Florida. The property was beautifully landscaped and meticulous! Our unit was quiet and peaceful and we enjoyed eating outside on our patio. We packed a lunch each day, took the beach supplies provided and walked to beautiful Stump Pass Beach State Park. We were unable to take advantage of the bikes, kayaks, paddle boards due to my broken arm, but we look forward to using them the next time we return.
Thanks Jackie! We're so happy you had a great time! Looking forward to having you all back again soon!
The property was well maintained, stocked and cared for.
I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay at the Highview. Location is just minutes walk to the beach and state park where you can enjoy either the beach or the bay. Kayaks, paddle boards, chairs, towels, sunbrellas, coolers and anything you could possibly need. The owner, Peter was accommodating and quick to respond to any requests we had. One of the best things was the location to the beaches and to the nightlife. There are 5 restaurants within walking distance and some even provide transportation. Live bands and sunsets are an added bonus to the location of this vacation gem. I would definitely stay here again!
Thanks for taking the time to leave a review Peter! It was a pleasure having you as our guest. Looking forward to having you back again soon!
Super cute, well maintained, clean, great local support, and plenty of toys!
We are a family of four (2 teens) and stayed at Stump Pass unit 2 from July 30 - August 3, 2017. The property is impeccably maintained and cared for, and nicely appointed/updated. Both owners and property management were readily accessible and eager to answer questions and accommodate requests. We don't have experience with many other Florida Gulf locations, but found this area very laid back, casual, and low key. This property is not on the water, but Manasota Key is literally less than .25 mile wide at this location and a very short walk to the beach, Stump Pass State Park, or the bay. And they have thought of just about everything in terms of beach and bay toys including the carts to transport them easily! Can't say enough good things, and would love to come back. No high rises, no traffic, and lots of fun things to discover and explore.
Hi Amanda! Thank you for the wonderful review! We're so glad you loved your suite and the area. Fun facts : ) This house is only a few hundred feet from the water and our deeded beach path is about a 60 seconds walk from the driveway) Thanks again. It was a pleasure having your family as our guests and we hope to have you back again soon!
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!
