Overview

About the property

2BR, 2BA Home Nestled Among Gnarled Oak Trees with Private Beach Access

Why rent a condo and fight for a spot on the beach when you can stay in a beautiful single family home, 100 steps from the Gulf of Mexico with your own private beach. Peace and tranquility.

An abundance of sea life steps from your front door- including dolphins, manatees and sea turtles. World-class fishing, shelling, kayaking and birding.

Located over the Sarasota County line in the tree canopy, zoned only for single family homes.. no condo's, apartments or multi story buildings. Yet, still close enough to bike or walk to shops, dining, music and nightlife.. then come back and relax in peace and quiet. Minutes to mainland shopping, dining and golf.

Beautifully decorated 2 BR, 2BA single level home. Newly remodeled kitchen with all new stainless steel appliances! Quality bedding and new furnishings. Large flatscreen televisions and hi-speed wireless internet. Lanai overlooking a very private large backyard.

Meticulously maintained corner property with an abundance of gnarled oak, palm and fruit trees, native plants and flowering shrubs.

About owner/manager

My wife and I bought this house in December 2012 to retire to. That's still a ways away. In the meantime, we travel here a few times each year to enjoy the house and all the natural beauty the area has to offer. We want you to do the same!

owner/manager purchased this house in 2012

Why owner/manager chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Manasota Key is a hidden gem and the location of our house is ideal for enjoying nearby shopping, dining and entertainment while relaxing in the shade of our beautiful gnarled oak trees and taking in sunsets every night on your own private beach! We haven't wasted any time in completely updating the house, including new kitchen, flooring, fixtures, windows, doors, AC system, etc. The exterior has been freshly painted and the property professionally landscaped. A tropical paradise!

What makes this house unique

Manasota Key is a haven for wildlife- dolphins, manatees, sea turtles, birds and gopher tortoises. A nature lovers dream!

Comfortable beach home

  • 5 of 5

The beach house was very comfortable, well kept and clean. Rob was wonderful as a host and was accommodating and very responsive. I feel he went out of his way to help us to have a wonderful vacation on Manasota Key. The private beach was wonderful and quiet. We found over 100 shark's teeth and other little fossils. We did see loggerhead and green turtle nests and saw trails too. The small ghost crabs were so much fun to watch. I personally loved all the little lizards too.

Thank you.

Florida Beach Oasis

  • 5 of 5

The house is clean and newly renovated. It offers spacious common areas including living room, kitchen and dining areas. We loved the lanai and lush vegetation. Its location in a shaded grove of oak tress is an oasis after hours in the Florida sun. The proximity to the beach is wonderful and provides endless hours of walking, lounging, shelling and optimal views of sunsets. Will be coming back next winter/spring!

Nice Home

Very clean, well-appointed home in a quiet neighborhood, very close to the beach. Excellent kitchen. We were pleased and would consider returning for a longer stay than our 3 night test. Owner very easy to deal with and helpful.

Peaceful, Relaxing, Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 8 nights in this beautiful, little cottage and had an amazing time! The house is very well equipped with everything you need for a comfortable, relaxing stay.

The "private" beach just a short walk from the house was so quiet and many days we were the only people there. We made friends with an iguana and a blue heron who seemed to be there every single time we relaxed on the beach!

I can't say enough about how wonderful Rob is to work with. I have some chronic health issues that make traveling somewhat challenging for me and he was so very accommodating and understanding! Truly a blessing!

I would absolutely recommend anyone stay here. The home is clean and well taken care of and Manasota Key is just a truly peaceful and tranquil little gem.

Owner's Response: Bridgette- thank you for such a nice review, and I'm glad you enjoyed the peace and tranquility of Manasota Key. You were kind enough not to mention an issue with the living room TV not powering on. I apologize for that inconvenience, and I'm still not sure what it was, but it was cheaper to replace than to fix!

Car: recommended

Beautiful tropical island setting just steps from the Gulf of Mexico and breathtaking sunsets every night. Enjoy private beach access right from your door or bike to town for dinner and drinks at night. Watch dolphins, manatee and sea turtles every day, or enjoy world-class fishing and kayaking. Cross the street and enjoy the beautiful views across Lemon Bay and an abundance of bird life.
