What makes this house unique

Rental agreements, deposits and payments are handled by a management company located right on Manasota Key. The advantage is that they are available to serve your needs throughout your visit. This is one of the major reasons we do not subscribe to VRBO's online payment system. We would rather go with the personal touch that comes with local service.

Two Weeks in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Manasota Key for years, but this was our first time renting a house. We read the reviews and looked at the pictures, but this house was even better than expected. The house is spacious, very clean and comfortable. The owners have thought of everything you might need, so you feel right at home as soon as you walk-in. The neighborhood is quiet and with the oversized lot, you have complete privacy. Having our own pool was an added bonus, and it was maintained weekly during our stay. One unexpected surprise was the outside shower, which we used exclusively. On our short walk to the beach, we never failed to be in awe of that first glimpse of beautiful blue water. Being surrounded by homes rather than condos, we practically had the beach to ourselves. Each night we walked along the shore and waited for the sky to explode with color, which never failed to impress. The two weeks went by much too fast, but we have found our new home away from home, so we will definitely be back.

A Little Bit of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year as a snowbird and our second year in this great house. We have been spoiled by staying here. The location is wonderful. Love the heated pool and being able to walk across the street to the private beach access. Last year we explored, this year we relaxed. Great place for that. Looking forward to next year! Thanks to the wonderful owners.

Exactly where we wanted to be!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for the month of December 2014. It was just perfect for our family of five. Although we could have rented a bigger, newer home further from the beach, we are so glad we chose this home. The private beach access allowed us to enjoy a practically empty beach most days and amazing sunsets every single night without the hassle of packing everyone up and driving to the beach. Thanks for a wonderful month in your beach home!

Island haven

  • 5 of 5

If you want to get away and relax, this is the place the do it. In a very attractive setting, this house is spacious, comfortable, and well-kept. Its openness is ideal for lounging, entertaining, or treating the family to a home away from home only steps from the beach. The large upper deck offers a place to grill and to dine al fresco with both friends and/or family. The very large pool beckons water lovers and is a welcome complement to the nearby Gulf. The tree-canopied road on which the house sits is an open invitation to bicycle riders. There are plenty of restaurants (especially, the Gulf View Grill and the Lock and Key Restaurant) and other amenities nearby. The place is a perfect prescription for anyone who needs to escape, for a time, the hassles and the humdrum of everydayness.

We have recommended this property to friends from France and well as from closer to home, and we would do so again without reservation. The owners make one and all feel more than welcome.

Spring and Summer

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property in May and August. BOTH times we thoroughly enjoyed the spacious home. The private beach is close by and surf fishing was great! The outdoor shower was perfect and the pool was so relaxing. We found everything we needed in this home, it has covered parking, and a large second story deck where we enjoyed grilling, eating outdoors, and hearing the surf. We think the week went by way too fast!

It is only a 40 minute drive to downtown Sarasota where you can experience the cultural capital of Florida -- theater, dance, touring shows, opera, symphony... Plus, fabulous shopping and dining at top notch restaurants.View the satellite image of this location at Google Maps: 6111 Manasota Key Rd, Englewood FL 34223.

Closer to Manasota Key there is kayaking, fishing, bird and dolphin watching. A charming downtown area with antique shops and restaurants.

The beauty of Manasota Key is that it is close to everything yet apart from it all. The Key is natural and pristine. No hotels on the beach -- just nature at its best.
