Manasota Key House Rental Photos and Description

1 BR Patio Suite w/ Private Furnished Outdoor Space & BBQ area.

At The Highview's newly acquired property, we offer a boutique vacation rental experience on the southern tip of Manasota Key. Included in your stay, we offer bicycles, kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, beach supplies, and much more. The Highview comes recommended by the locals and is a great spot for any occasion! With a unique location and unmatched amenities, these one bedroom suites at The Highview offer everything you need for your specific style of vacation.

Location, location, location! Being situated on the southern tip of the Key, you could almost throw a coconut from the Gulf to the Bay here. The Highview is located JUST STEPS TO THE BEACH and Stump Pass State Park.

Allow lush tropical landscaping to welcome you to our property and lead you to your suite. We've ensured your ability to prepare, serve, and then relax any way your heart desires with a newly stocked Kitchen and modern, comfortable Living Room. Enjoy a new mattress and luxury linens in your Queen bedroom. Outside, your private newly furnished outdoor patio awaits; where you can cook, dine, or lounge the day away amongst tropical landscaping.

We love being steps from Stump Pass State Park! There are 265 acres of sandy walking trails and pristine beaches here. You can ALWAYS find a section of beach all to yourself. The wildlife here is amazing! You will see pelicans diving for fish, osprey in tree tops, and herons on the beach. Dolphins and manatee are always swimming the shoreline and sea turtles choose this paradise to lay their eggs. Don't forget to bring your camera! Also make sure to look down in the sand, Prehistoric shark teeth and beautiful shells are never hard to find and are abundant on the beaches of the Key. Go shelling at the point of Stump Pass for a truly wonderful experience, then return to The Highview to rinse your souvenirs in our Shell Cleaning Station. If you prefer an outdoor shower, ours are temperature controlled and ready for you.

If you've been here before, you know its allure. If it's your first time, get ready for a soul refreshing journey! Be sure to enjoy our beach cruiser Bikes, Stand Up Paddle Boards and Kayaks to explore as well! They're FREE to use and included with your rental.

Bring your friends and family! Other suites may be available. If you have any questions, always feel free to contact us directly.

This was my first time ever renting a home instead of a hotel, and I will never again rent from a hotel. The owners are so great, they came and met us and were so nice and accommodating. The free kayaks, paddleboards, beach toys, and everything inside are great! My friend and I had a blast and can't wait to come back. The pictures online are exactly what you should expect. Thank you for making our Florida stay my best ever, I will be coming back!

Total pride of ownership shines through!

  • 5 of 5

It is obivious that these owners care about the experience their guest have. The attention to detail and ammenities were outstanding. Very, very clean accomodations. It was so nice to get a text the night we arrived from the owner welcoming us. We have traveled all over the country and we are unusally dissatisfied with some aspect of our accomodations.... but no tthis time. I'd love to keep them a secret but folks that work that hard to provide a wonderful vacation to families should be rewarded. Highly recommended! We will stay with them again.

Fun in the Sun!

What a great place! Very clean and nicely furnished. The grounds were beautiful, the toys provided....great! Beach is within walking distance, as was Stump Pass Park. We were fortunate to meet the owner, Pete. Very pleasant, gave a tour and recommended restaurants. We also had the pleasure of meeting our neighbors. Would recommend this property to anyone looking for a great place to stay on the island. Hopefully will be back next year and try the Highview! Happy Thanksgiving, Happy Holiday and Happy New Year, Pete and MaryJo. Regards, Laura and Lenny Alessi

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 paddleboards, 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 a few steps from our door, 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 home base.
