On the top or 3rd floor, enjoy cooking in the fully equipped kitchen or cook on the outside gas grill.

Also on this level is the great room, which has a large flat screen TV, and walks out onto a screened in lanai and dining area with beautiful gulf views. The large master suite and bathroom are on the top floor with views to the ocean. A spiral staircase takes you up to the 4th level sundeck. From the sundeck you have access to a widow's watch that provides views from the southern tip of stump pass to Lemon Bay and Englewood Beach.

The location of the home is ideal as it is a very short walk to Stump Pass State Park, there is a 1.3 mile long walking trail that takes you past pristine beaches and all to way to the southern tip of the island.

The wildlife here is amazing, we have an osprey that sits across the street from the house and dines on fish every morning. On the Lemon Bay you can spot dolphins and manatee swimming along the shoreline. Sea turtles lay eggs here every year and fossilized sharks teeth can be found along the beach. Sea turtle season runs every May through October, where female sea turtles crawl ashore to lay dozens of eggs in the sand.

If you're lucky enough to stay during a full moon, you may be able to witness a mother sea turtle laying burying her eggs firsthand!

About David Yildiz

I live in Berlin Massachusetts with my wife and 3 children, and we try to make it down to Manasota Key whenever we can. I grew up in New England but I will retire on Manasota Key!

David Yildiz purchased this house in 2014

Why David Yildiz chose Englewood

This home is a 5 minute walk to Stumps Pass which is the real treasure on Manasota Key. It is a mile of undisturbed beach along the Gulf of Mexico where seashells and shark teeth wash up. The beach stays secluded due to the very limited parking, a huge plus if you live here. A hiking trail passes through five distinct natural communities in Stumps Pass Park that provide homes for many species of wildlife. There are covered picnic tables located along the trail and you have access to both the Gulf and Bay sides at certain points along the way. Wildlife consists of manatees, gopher tortoises, ospreys, snowy egrets, terns, and magnificent frigate birds. Take advantage of the Ranger-led nature hikes that are available in the winter.

What makes this house unique

The home has the best views on the island as there is a widows watch that rises 5 stories high where you can see the southern tip of the island as well as Lemon Bay.

You are steps from the beach, and only a 5 minute walk to Stumps Pass State Park.

The house was designed to be handicapped accessible with an elevator and a wheelchair friendly master shower.

We provide free use of bikes, kayaks, and stand up paddleboards as well as beach gear like coolers, towels, toys, and chairs.

The home offers high end appliances and a fully equipped kitchen.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay could not have been better. David's attention to detail was key. He has everything you could possibly need available, making it unnecessary for you to haul a lot of thing down to the beach with you. Kayaks, bicycles, coolers, umbrellas, chairs, all provided. Well stocked kitchen, as well as towels and linens.

The space is more than accommodating for large groups. Everyone had there own space. The rooms were all clean. We swam with manatees on three occasions, twice, right on the beach in front of the house. The local area offers peace and quiet, without sacrificing on activities. We spent a lot of our time on the beach, but also were able to kayak for several hours in Lemon Bay; Fish at Stump Pass, and we event rented a deck boat and cruised around Boca Grande on our last day. I whole hardheartedly recommend this rental.

Everything we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house and location. Plenty of room to spread out, lots of porches, comfortable beds and the elevator was great. David was very good to work with and answered questions right away. I grew up collecting shark’s teeth and so did my 3 daughters. We had a great time showing my grandkids the art of finding them. They really got into it. The beaches change so quickly and you never know what you will find. We found over 5500 teeth during the week we were there. Never did find the really big one I was looking for..... but that just gives me something to look for next time 😀?

The only thing that could make this house better would be if it was oceanfront.....but then it would cost so much more.

Special Family Getaway Celebration

  • 5 of 5

We loved the layout of the house. It was perfect for our family get together. We had 4 families with 8 adults and 7 grandchildren celebrating a 60th birthday, 40th anniversary, a 40th birthday and a 10th birthday all rolled into one celebration. Three families were on the second floor and we (the grandparents) stayed in the master bedroom on the 3rd floor. The first floor kept our two vehicles safe in the garages. Having an elevator was really nice for check in and check out days with all of our luggage. Of course the grand kids were excited to discover the "tippy-tippy-top" area of the house which gave us a wonderful view of the ocean, beach and surrounding area of Manasota Key from the Widow's Watch upper deck. The kitchen was on the 3rd floor which was well stocked with everything needed for cooking. Plenty of dishes for a large crew. The grill worked fine and was on a small separate outdoor deck which was nice for safety reasons with the grandkids.

We even held an Easter egg hunt in the side yard which had a privacy fence around the home. There were plenty of beach toys and accessories for the many short walks down to the beach which was about 100 yards away. We were very excited to find that within walking distance was Stump Pass State Park, which had trails that led to an amazing lagoon area where the kids could play in the water and build sand castles. We had rented a pontoon boat for a day and spent some time exploring Lemon Bay where we saw dolphins swimming alongside our boat. We were able to land the pontoon at this lagoon area so we spent some fun time there.

David communicated with us very well and responded quickly to the small issues that came up. The half bath toilet lift chain broke and was fixed the next day even though we had temporarily repaired it. The screen/storm door leading to the Widow's Watch was not closing properly and again was fixed right away. The main problem that we had was the second floor AC was not working which made it a little uncomfortable on that floor. The 3rd floor AC unit was working well which made a bad situation more bearable. To David's credit, he was working with the technician all through our stay to get it repaired, but unfortunately they installed a faulty compressor and had to order a different one. All in all, we enjoyed our stay very much and would recommend it highly.
