About the property

Private Home: 2 master suites plus bonus loft, 3 full baths heated pool sleeps 6

With only 150 steps to the Gulf's azure sea, you will reset and restore your soul. Your vacation will be all about relaxation and being grateful for the day.

This beautiful island home features a resort style floor plan. It has a main building with master bedroom, en suite (double sink) bath, a loft style bedroom, a second bath, fully equipped kitchen, dining area and living room. Across the lanai (pool area), you will find another buliding with the second master bedroom & en suite bath.

Although the lovely beaches and nearby attractions are a very strong draw, you may decide to spend your time thoroughly enjoying the comfort of this inviting home. Its' high ceilings & feeling of spaciousness, the refreshing crystal clear heated pool and just about every creature comfort will put you at ease and possibly convince you to remain at the house for the day and consider the next day 'a beach day.'

Why Manasota Key?: Being from Rhode Island, the ocean state, my family and I have come to develop the need to be near the water. We had heard about Englewood through a friend and decided to look into this place that was described as being 'Old Florida.' The thought of finding an ideal place to vacation and eventually reside was enticing. After just one visit, we knew this island was what we'd been looking for for years. The beautiful, unspoiled surroundings and very friendly locals all played a part in our decision to become Gulf residents.

It didn't take long before we found this beautiful house close to the Gulf waters in March of 2011. This home has a feeling to it that needs to be experienced to understand. If a house could have a heart and soul, you would want this house to be your best friend. I hope you find the time to come to the water and relax.

All the best to you,

This was our second time staying in this lovely property. I always feel like I'm getting kicked out of heaven on check out day. The property is as beautiful as pictured. This home is great for relaxing family trips. The kids love the pool and nearby beaches. The property owner is always a phone call away to answer any questions. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looming for a wonderful gulf coast experience!

Just as pictured.

We really enjoyed our 9 days on Manasota Key. The house design is well suited for 2 couples, or as in our case a couple and one college aged daughter, as the main bedrooms are in two separate buildings with the pool/lanai in between. The pool was a good size and always clean and a great temperature (not cold, but refreshing). There was a lot of privacy as the pool was between the buildings and had trees and plantings in the back. The flowers on the property were beautiful. The loft gets a bit warm during the day, but that didn't stop it from being used for naps and internet searching with the provided wifi. We also used the printer for our airline passes...very convenient.

The gulf is just around the corner. You walk out of the door, pass one house on the right, turn left and pass a house on the left and you are at the shore. The beach area varies by high/low tide of course, but there was always a place to sit or walk up the shore, sometimes having to walk in the water but that's part of the fun. We found a lot of sharks teeth.

The house was well equipped including the kitchen with many small appliances and cookware. There were many bath towels and beach towels, several beach chairs, umbrella and sand toys. We had hoped to use the bikes but of the 3 provided only one was short enough for us...I'm sure they will be great for average height people.

We visited the last week in July, which is considered off season so there were very few people on the beaches and the traffic was light. A few shops were closed in the area, but most everything was up and running. Sure, it was hot, but you're at the beach so you can cool off in the gulf or the pool. It was a great time to visit.

The owner, Nancy, always answered emails very quickly. The propane for the grill had run out, I let her know and it was replace by the next day.

Thanks for providing such a wonderful place for us to get away from our normal busy lives. We hope to come back soon.

Great low-key family vacation

  • 4 of 5

This was a great vacation for traveling with a 4 year old and 8 month old. Convenience was key and having the pool right there and a super short walk to the beach was perfect. The house was clean and had everything you could need. We would definitely recommend this house to friends looking for a relaxing Florida vacation.

Great Week on Manasota Key

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, well decorated, clean home and accommodating for three couples. The loft does not provide a lot of privacy but the trundle bed was very comfortable. The steps are steep and your bathroom is downstairs. The house provided everything you would need for pool and beach. The beach near the house is very narrow but walkable at low tide. Englewood Beach is a mile away and Blind Pass just 2 miles. Both very nice. Try Stumph Point Beach and kayaking there. We would recommend this house to friends and family. Pool and Lanai area so much fun. Pepe was available and helpful! Nancy was so nice to work with. White Elephant in downtown Engewood was a good fun restaurant. Farlows on the Water was excellent and just a few miles away. Reservations good to have.
