Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Manasota Key - South Manasota Key Beach House

Relax And Enjoy Beautiful Views On Manasota Key - Built In 2014 & Hc Accessible

South Manasota Key rental in Englewood FL

Relax and enjoy beautiful views at 1170 Gulf Blvd Englewood, FL (on Manasota key) situated on the southern tip of the island, and is just steps to the beach and stumps pass state park. Completed in January 2014, the home is handicap accessible with an elevator.

Take a ride on our bikes, launch the kayaks or try the stand up paddle boards, it is all included with your rental! We also provide 2 large coolers and beach gear (chairs, beach towels, and sand toys) for your use.

Enjoy the breath taking views overlooking The Gulf of Mexico and Lemon Bay from our sun deck or widow's watch.

There's premium high speed wireless internet (50/10mbps), HD cable TV,and 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. The kitchen and all bathrooms all have granite counter tops and tiled floors.

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.

On the second floor there are 4 bedrooms and 2 baths and wet bar and lounge which also walks out to a covered lanai. There are 2 sleeper sofas which can accommodate additional guests. There is a 2 car garage and outside shower on the ground floor back porch. The elevator is wheelchair accessible and services the garage level(1st floor) , 2nd, and 3rd floors.

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 Florida South Central Gulf Coast

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.

Modern, comfortible home in a peaceful location with wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

Three couples and four kids fit comfortably in this wonderful home. We used the kitchen, ate meals out on the patio overlooking the water and walked to the beach every day.

There was great shelling. We saw porpoises at the beach every day we were there. We used the beach toys to build sandcastles and snorkel.

The location is perfect for exploring the state park. We used the kayaks and bikes for lots of adventures.

Thank you for a wonderful time!

Best Home in the area for a large group, hands down.

  • 5 of 5

Rented this unit for a week and glad we did, easily accomandated 14 of us. There were 7 adults and 7 children and we never did feel crowded. The unit had 4 of the bedrooms on the second floor and they had their own balcony and a small wet bar area. The top floor had the master unit which was worth the stay alone. The top floor also had the open kitchen and great room along with the screened in porch. The screened in porch was a big hit and we ate breakfast there as well as watching Dolphins playing. I was able to get some awesome sunset pictures from the crows nest. The unit was equipped with all needed items, the beach toys were a big hit. There was a 2 car garage the contained everything we needed for the beach. We were able to kyack both the gulf and lemon bay. The bicycles came in handy for early morning fires along beach road. This unit would easily accomandate a wheel chair as there is an elevator, came in handy loading and unloading luggage and groceries. Right across from the beach with easy access. We all enjoyed ourselves and are looking forward to a return visit in the future. The only recommendation I have is that a king sized bed would be nice in the master bedroom, but that is being petty....

Great Beach Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week vacation at David's beach house, The house was amazing with a view to match! We had 13 in our group and still had plenty of space for relaxation. We enjoyed the spacious kitchen, cooking our meals and eating on the decks staring at the beautiful sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico. The teenagers loved playing cards on the screened in porch. Easy access to the beach and nice to have chairs and bikes there for us to use. The view from the Crows nest I would have to say, is the best on Manasota Key!

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Next time I'm in the chair at the dentist's office and need to think of my "happy place," I will picture myself with my family on the widow's watch of this house watching the sun set over the gulf. The home was beautiful and the beach was uncrowded but the people we did encounter were very friendly. The owner was very responsive to our needs. We would love to return someday!

We particularly enjoyed riding the provided bikes to Manasota Key Coffee House for a treat and walking to Stump's Pass.
