Wonderful home to vacation in!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay in this clean convenient home close to the beaches. The home is very cozy and the furnishings also. The yard is so nice as well if you enjoy sitting outside in cooler part of the day. Had no problems with anything and so nice to have a laundry area as well. Would for sure recommend this to anyone looking for a place to stay.

Great Rental, minutes away from Manasota Key Beaches

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Doane's for about a month in September. Everything was great! The bed was extremely comfortable, the back yard was a peaceful place great for reading, the laundry machines worked great. Doane was extremely responsive to any small problems that popped up during my stay. There are three beaches super just a short drive away from the house, or you can enjoy the view and ride one of the bicycles in the shed to the beach! There were many nights I just went to the beach to watch the beautiful sunset! The kitchen is fully stocked with things to cook food in, but if you don't feel like cooking there are amazing restaurants just a few minutes away (my personal favorite is Farlow's on the Water!). The wifi and cable worked great - there were a ton of channels to choose from, and the DVD selection was extensive. I would definitely recommend this place to people in the future, it's a wonderful place to go if you're looking to unwind and relax!

A quiet retreat at the beach

  • 5 of 5

We have been a few times and we have received the same wonderful treatment! The home is always nice and clean and the owner supplies everything you need like dishes, towels, sheets, blankets, and much more. The house is very close to the beach and Publix and Walmart. There is a pizza place and Subway 5 minutes away. It's really nice to sit outside in the back and have a nice breakfast or a drink.

Fantastic Vacation Rental Close To Beach

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at this home. It was clean and comfortably furnished. Had that homey feel when you immediately walked in. Everything you need is there. From kitchenware, Television, cable, and wifi (kids made sure to check that immediately), laundry room and beach items (everything you need for the beach is in the shed out back. The backyard is a nice tranquil area to relax and grill out with a view of a pond. Just in case it is raining (it is Florida), there is quite the library of DVD movies to choose from. We spent most of our time there or at the beach, which is just a few minutes drive away. Stores are close as well and the restaurants by the beach are way better than l thought they would be. Owner was quickly responsive to my questions and very friendly.

We would and WILL definitely stay here again and recommend to friends and family.

Beautiful beaches with amazing sunsets, dolphin and manatee sightings. Shells and sharks teeth are plentiful. There are secluded stretches of beach to enjoy. Stump Pass and Blind Pass are two I highly recommend visiting.
