Why Peter and MaryJo - Owners chose Englewood

After exploring Florida's Gulf coast for the perfect slice of paradise we kept coming back to the little unknown island called Manasota Key. The perfect mix of peace and quite, nature, and some fun Key West style restaurants just up the road. Anything else you need or want is just off island .

Our home sits on the southern tip of the Island and is right next to Stump Pass State Park. This suite enjoys peekaboo water views of both Lemon bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Come smell the fresh salt air!

Amazing property, better than advertised!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at the Highview and can't wait to go back! The pictures are accurate and the convenience to the beach, advantages of having all the "toys" we needed and the perfectly appointed kitchen and baths is incomparable. We spent our days on the uncrowded beach, nights at fabulous restaurants (Farlow's, Landy's, Lock and Key) close by and finished playing games and cards at the table large enough to seat 8 comfortably. All we needed was food, drink and the sun, all of which were in no short supply! Fabulous grills complete with charcoal, all the bikes, and Tommy Bahama backpack beach chairs and rolling coolers were completely unexpected, but appreciated! Thank you Peter and MaryJo for your hospitality, we're planning our 2017 trip already!

Great time had by all!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Peter and Mary Jo for our recent stay. We had an absolutely great time. The Penthouse was very comfortable, plenty of room, everything we could imagine and more. Furnishings were very nice. We made use of chairs, umbrellas, cart, kayaks, paddle boards and my favorite--the outdoor showers. Such a convenient location to the beach and a great perk to find that the local restaurants just down the street offer free rides to and from. We made use of that many times. Beaches are very nice with lots of shells and shark teeth for those wanting to add to a collection. Really can't say enough good things about our stay. One small area that could be improved would be to add some lighting to the stairs coming down from the Penthouse. There is some lighting underneath but really not enough. Some of my family members did comment that more lighting was needed. Other than that, I'd say our stay was pretty near perfect! Would very highly recommend to anyone considering this property.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This property was great for our family of 8. It was clean and had everything you need to have a great vacation. The kitchen was well equipped with dishes and pots and pans. Loved that it had a washer and dryer. It just made everything great. We really appreciated that they provide everything that you need for the beach. It was awesome to have beach chairs, umbrellas, buckets and shovels for the kids. Outdoor showers and a place to rinse everything off. They thought of everything. It is a great place to stay.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The owners were amazing and responded very promptly to all of my annoying questions! The beach chairs, carts, and coolers came in CLUTCH. As did the high chair! I loved sitting on the bar height Adirondacks on the back porch and watching the ocean while my girls napped. Also loved that it was walking distance to the beach park playground. Thank you so much!

The seclusion of Manasota Key mixed with access to modern conveniences make this a perfect place for just about any vacation.

While here, we like to call special attention to the Key's best kept secret. Stump Pass State Park.

Being just steps away from Stump Pass State Park, the opportunities to enjoy nature are endless. Whether a relaxing beach day on miles of uninhabited coastline is your style, or you'd rather paddle the bay and inlets in our kayaks or on our paddle boards, this is the perfect setting. Every day at Stump Pass is an exciting chance to view nature of all kinds at their finest. Be sure to bring your camera!

Manasota Key is also known for the abundance of shells and shark teeth that can be found with little to no effort. After your done combing the beach just wash off your bounty in one of our shell cleaning stations. These will help you get the sand and salt off your souvenirs so they're ready to take home.

Sunrises, Sunsets, and Star-gazing are spectacular here. Whether it's an active or restful vacation you're looking for, this suite on the South End of Manasota Key provides the perfect location for your vacation.
