*Manasota Key Private Cottage Near Beach*
average rating of 4.5 based on 16 reviews

Great location, very clean and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Three-minute walk to a great beach. That's the main reason you want to rent this little cottage. It's comfortable for one or two people - the mattress is good and firm, although the box spring is a touch creaky. It's clean and the furnishings and amenities are very nice, save for the tiny kitchen. But if you're patient, you can even cook a little, and there's always the grill outside. Owners live in adjacent house and are a very nice, accommodating couple. Had a small issue with the wifi while I was there and they got it tended to within a day.

Manesota key cottage

  • 3 of 5

Small but cozy.Kitchen too small...no place to put dishes to drain or dry after washing them.Close to beach but property was advertised as only needing to cross street to private beach. This beach was washed away....weather caused the erosion of the beach but we weren't aware of situation until shortly before our arrival. Very nice beaches and good road for walking and biking.Owners were helpful and not intrusive at all being on same property. They answered our questions and had literature on places to see,restaurants,etc.

Quaint Cottage, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 2 weeks at this cottage, and loved it. It was very clean and quiet. The location was perfect. We were minutes from our favorite beach- Blind Pass Beach. We spent several evenings at the "private beach" watching the sunset. The owners were great to work with, from the initial booking to check out. If you are looking for a place with a lot of room, this isn't for you, but if your looking for a clean and cozy get away, this is your place. We loved it- close to 4 beaches, shopping, and great restaurants. We

will be going back next year!

A Lovely Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a brief stay at this lovely cottage. It was beautifully appointed, like a very well decorated private home. In addition, the cottage was incredibly well stocked. The porch light burned out while we were there and we actually found a replacement bulb. During that search, we also located matches, candles and playing cards. The owners have thought of everything.

The one caution I would offer is regarding the sleeping accommodations. The double bed was just not big enough for the two of us. In addition, the fold out bed is located so that opening it closes off the bedroom, making late night bathroom visits inconvenient.

Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time staying in Manasota Key. The cottage was cute, clean and ideally located. We especially enjoyed the option to fish off of the dock in the canal (catching trout, black drum and even a catfish) or a short walk to a small private beach. The owners were very charming, sending us on the road with fresh baked scones, but giving us our privacy. I would definitely recommend a stay at their cottage. Well worth it!

Made my week! Lovely, charming, perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

I have already shared the cottage info with several people and would highly recommend to anyone interested in Manasota Key! The description and pictures were spot on but it was still a wonderful surprise upon arrival. It was immaculate, well-maintained and pleasantly decorated - cozy and comfortable. The amenities were more than ample complete with bath and beach towels (and beach gear) and the kitchenette very functional, with more than adequate fixtures and utensils if you want to cook in. I would forego that to using the grill and enjoying the private patio with the table and umbrella surrounded by vines of jasmine - a perfect spot for coffee in the morning or cocktails after the beach. My only complaint was the need for a larger coffeepot since every morning was spent relaxing before and after a daily walk, a wonderful treat just to chill! The owner's assistance was very helpful (it was a treat to actually meet her) from renting bikes to sharing suggestions for restaurants and shopping. The cottage is very convenient (quiet and safe) to both the bay and the ocean and a very short walk to numerous restaurants and beachy-type eateries. A perfect cottage at the beach! It was sad to leave.
