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.

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 next to Stump Pass State Park. Come smell the fresh salt air!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as described and even better in person. The owners Peter and Mary Jo are very easy to work with and very responsive to our questions. They have created a very easy vacation spot since everything you need on right there on the property. You can park the car and walk or bike to most things on the Key. The beach is a very short walk and Stump Pass park is at the end of the road. We made it a point to use everything the property had to offer and suggest you try as well to make your stay more memorable.

Sincerely,

Pete and Justyn

SMALL BUT QUAINT

  • 3 of 5

Small unit, but quaint. No complaints. Really liked the back patio. Beach is very small and shelly.

Owner's Response: Hi Janeen Thanks for staying with us. Try one of our two or three bedroom suites next time. They would definitely give you and your husband the space you may have been looking for. I realize you chose our location out of necessity for your daughters lacrosse tournament nearby. We find most of our guests come to our home and Manasota key by choice for the abundant nature and miles of uncrowded sandy beaches to do some shelling and look for prehistoric sharks teeth. Wishing you both all the best. Peter & MaryJo

Loved the location of the house....enjoyed nightly sunset morning and nightly walks.

  • 5 of 5

We really liked the location of the house! Every morning we would walk Stump State park to the end and walk back along the beach and collect shells. We walked to all the restaurants and bars! And we really enjoyed the private back yard a great quite place to read, nap and have a glass of wine! Thanks so much for letting us stay at the house. loved all 11 days. Everything we needed was at the house. Thanks

Lush, Tropical, Spotless with lots of ammenities

  • 4 of 5

We stayed a week at the Highview and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The place looks just like the pictures, exceptionally clean and tastefully decorated. Comfortable bed for those with troublesome backs, well equipped kitchen plus plush towels (including very large beach towels). There is also an abundance of beach chairs plenty of bikes, kayaks, and SUP’s. We used them all, although we didn’t come close in mastering the art of the SUP’s, but had a lot fun trying.

The outside is beautiful, very lush and tropical. Your own private patio area behind the unit is very nice but the only drawback is the sound of air conditioners. This probably wouldn’t matter to a lot of people but we (mostly my husband who can live in a terrarium) enjoy spending time outdoors even in the heat. However, we were able to move to the nice front sitting area of the other unoccupied units. This is the only reason I didn’t rate give it a 5 star rating. Did I mention the outdoor showers? We almost exclusively used these …nothing like looking up at the sky while showering. We were lucky to meet the owners Pete and MaryJo, very nice, responsive and accommodating people and enjoyable to talk to. Thank you for sharing your fantastic place. We hope to be back soon!!

Steps to Deeded Beach Access

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 home base.
