An Enjoyable Stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Cool Breeze -- a lovely, well equiped and maintained cottage in a quiet neighborhood. It is just a short ride by bike or walk to the beach.

Very nice accomodations

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our stay. We enjoyed the evenings out on the back porch with the windows open and the nice ocean breeze. Everything was very clean and worked perfectly. The owner Kathleen was very friendly and contacted me in a timely manner to give me instructions for the house. The only thing I would caution anyone on is the beach. You can access the beach from this house via pathways but once on the beach you must stay in the wet part by the water or the beach front homeowners will hassle you. We were approached by one owner that said you can sit on the beach as long as you were inside the high tide mark. The following day another owner told us the wet part of the sand which is subjective as it is changing constantly due to the tide. We decided to stick with the public beaches to avoid the grouchy owners on the beach which was still great. I would stay at the house again even though we did have issues with beach front owners. I guess I can understand their point, if I owned beach front property to the oceans edge I would want to keep it private too. I also understand there are a lot of people who take advantage of situations and leave trash etc. on the beach. It was nice to be able to bring our little dogs with us and we appreciated that. The beds were comfortable and the house has everything you need while you are there.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much April for you lovely response, I am so glad you enjoyed the cottage and had a nice vacation...please come back anytime! Just for anyone confused about the beach issue, April is correct, the beachfront properties on all of Manasota & Englewood Beach own up to the high tide line and most of them will mark the area off if they care if someone enters their space. I have always put my chairs & umbrella near the water just because it is cooler there and what I prefer. Maybe that is why in all my visits to the beach I never had an owner say anything to me. Thanks for letting me know you were approached April, I will make sure any future guest knows about the beachfront property rights so there is no confusion. Again, thanks for your wonderful review...we look forward to having you stay at Cool Breeze Cottage again soon! Kathleen

Our Anniversary at the beach

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful time for our 50th wedding anniversary on Manasota Key. Cool Breeze cottage was perfect for us, every morning we enjoyed our coffee on the screened in porch just listening to the birds. In the evening we would stroll to the beach and watch the sunset. This home was amount of light, bright, clean and comfortable. thank you so much for sharing your special place with us!

cool breeze was perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

we were so glad we rented this updated,small home for the month of January! it was well stocked with everything we could want-beach towels,sheets,kitchen tools,gas grill,bikes. the cool breezes did flow through the house and we slept well in comfortable beds listening to the palms and nearby Gulf waves. Venice,Sarasota and Ft Myers are just a short drive away if you feel the need to explore. neighbors were friendly and the area was safe and quiet at night. we left feeling very relaxed,appreciating the natural beauty of Manasota Key and will return next year. thank you for being pet- friendly.

Cool Breeze is the Best!

  • 5 of 5

Cool Breeze was everything I could have hoped for in a beach cottage getaway! Adorable furnishings, spotlessly clean and well appointed. The modern new kitchen had everything we needed, and then some. The location could not be better, we would go watch the sunset on the beach then bicycle to dinner. Old Florida with a comfortable modern house. Nice quiet residential neighborhood but close to everything. Loved it and can't wait to go back.
