Cute property but needs a little TLC.

  • 2 of 5

Our stay at this property was enjoyable, but many things needed fixed or updated. Furniture was old and needed replaced. Tub was beyond help as the finish was worn off and looked quite dirty. On the plus side, the house was clean, the kitchen was well equipped, and the owner easy to deal with. Coffee maker needs replaced because it feel apart each morning and needed to be put back together.

For our needs, this place was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed two weeks at David's house on Manasota Key in January 2017 and the location was perfect for us. Having our fishing boat moored right out the back door and so easily accessible was a huge hit with our adult children. Going to the beach was an easy 3-4 minute walk - we enjoyed the sunsets every night! Having a second shower, toilet, sink in the shed with the washer and dryer was so helpful; especially with 7 adults. We've stayed in Manasota Key for years; it's a laid back community and small enough that you can walk to the beaches, bars, and restaurants. Now that we've discovered David's house, we'll be back for sure!

Great property

  • 4 of 5

Our family has been coming to Manasota Key for many summers. This is our first stay in the Cottage. Great accommodations, our dogs loved it, and the dock was perfect for our 18' boat along with my sons 14' skiff. The beach is s short stroll across the street. The A/C unit had trouble keeping up with the 90+ temperature, but the owner was quick to respond to our needs. I would recommend this cute house for future vacationers!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Had the best of both worlds in this lovely cottage--saltwater canal for our boat and beautiful sunsets just a short walk across the street to the private beach. The cottage was very comfortable for me and my husband plus our yellow lab. Completely fenced in with great outdoor living. We even had three adult guests stay for a night with plenty of additional room for all of us to sleep comfortably.

David, the homeowner, responded to all our requests and/or questions immediately and was very helpful during our stay.

The location was perfect; we will be back again!

A Perfect Beach Rental!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great 5 weeks on Manasota Key and thoroughly enjoyed this property. The house is perfectly situated….a stones throw from a quiet beach and a short walk to all restaurants. The house itself is perfectly appointed! Dishes, pans, kitchen utensils etc. all practically new and spotless. The kitchen is new to the house, and although there is no room for a dining table, there is a very large screened lanai with a table where we ate all our meals. The backyard is private and at the end of a canal….always cool on a hot day. The outer building has a second bath….should it be needed…and a washer and dryer.

David was always available if a question came up and eager to resolve any problems.

Manasota Key is a special place….quiet, laid back….yet within easy access of a supermarket and other shopping off island. And don't miss Olde Englewood where there is a weekly Farmer’s Market and some very good restaurants.

David...thank you for sharing this rental property. It was a perfect 5 weeks and we hope to be back!

Good location for beaching

  • 3 of 5

Pros: easy walk to beach and Stump Pass, cutely decorated cottage, comfortable master bed, nice and large screened back porch, attractive backyard with outdoor seating, kayak & dock, quiet area, and adequately stocked kitchen.

Cons: inadequate supply of hot water for showering (ran cool during course of shower probably related to loss of hot water through tub spigot rather than into shower head), one of the bedrooms unusable in cold weather due to lack of heat in room (window louver rusted open), and no closets in two of the three "bedrooms".
