About Marie Holland

Jay and I have been visiting the area for years, thanks to an Aunt who discovered the beautiful southwest coast of Florida many years ago. We love the privacy and flexibility the house affords us that we can extend to our guests.

Marie Holland purchased this house in 2012

Why Marie Holland chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

The house offers direct beach access with a private deeded beach right on the Gulf. It is newer construction and high enough to see far and wide. We hope you love it as much as we do!

What makes this house unique

Private deeded beach for the exclusive use of our guests. A perfect place for small or large families and reunions. Check out Side B, VRBO 427446

We stayed at this amazing rental last week. When we walked in I couldn't believe the size. We had 4 adults and 3 children with us and we had plenty of room. The house was very clean and had everything you needed to cook a meal which we did every night. The view and beach itself is my favorite. You are right on the beach and can walk up to get a drink within seconds. Will definitely rent again.

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

As I said to the owner, a beautiful large apartment in a 2 family building. Clean large and beautiful. I didn't expect such a large apartment. Not only three bedrooms three baths, but so large no one felt cramped. Beautiful beach and sunset every night. Great walking environment. Extremely quiet and private. I will be back!!!

Yearly Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Hi Jay and Marie, We had another fabulous vacation at your beach house! The weather was fantastic, too! I have to tell you that we loved the larger side of the house and our little 3 year old grand twins were asking when they were going to GG and Pop Pop's beach house for two months! We have reserved side B for next year because side A was unavailable- just a little tighter fit. Just love the location!

Many thanks for providing us with a beautiful spot to have a family location!

Fondly, Pam (and (Allen)

I had the best time at Manasota Key with all my friends. The view was breathtaking and the house was very welcoming and relaxing. We were guests in October and the weather was wonderful. I will try to visit this same place again. Thanks for a great week!

Senior trip

  • 4 of 5

Walking through the back door for the first time and seeing the view was awesome. All you could see was 2 huge palm trees and ocean. Our group rented both side a and side b and we were very pleased with the furnishings and how clean it was.

Our only concern is there are many steps both the front and back doors, so keep this in mind if you have luggage and groceries. The beach chairs were a pleasant surprise but the clutter of beach toys, floats and broken items took away from the beauty of the area. A storm blew in for two days while we were there and we cleaned up and picked up as much as we could. There needs to be a shed of so sort to store these items in.

The house is located in a quiet section and easy walking to most places.

Thanks for allowing us to view the ocean every morning with our coffee, its a memory we will all treasure.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay! The steps can be a challenge and I am always amazed at my 87 year old Mom who goes up and down whenever we stay there! Thank you for picking up the broken beach toys and bringing this to our attention. We recently changed our outside lawn/cleaning service and we will let them know. Thank you and best regards, Marie & Jay

Special birthday

  • 5 of 5

when we arrived we were blown away by the house. There were 6 of us and the place is so roomy, everything was there that we needed. To waken up in the morning with the view, to see Dolphins right in front of us was spectacular. I loved my whole time there.
