About the property

1 BR Patio Suite w/ Private Furnished Outdoor Space & BBQ area.

NO ferrys or water taxi needed. Just drive over the bridge to our island and enjoy your freedom and spontaneity. Welcome to "Stump Pass Place". This rental previously was a part of "The Highview on Manasota Key". Ownership and management are the same, only the name differs to distinguish itself.

Offering a wonderful boutique style vacation rental on the southern tip of Manasota Key. Included in your stay are kayaks, stand-up paddle boards, beach supplies, and much more. Stump Pass Place comes recommended by the locals and is a great spot for any occasion! With a unique location and unmatched amenities, this one bedroom suite offers everything you need for an amazing vacation.

Location, location, location! Being situated on the southern tip of the Key, you could almost throw a coconut from the Gulf to the Bay here and our deeded beach path is only 60 seconds from the driveway.

We love being steps from Stump Pass State Park! There are 265 acres of sandy walking trails and pristine beaches here. You can ALWAYS find a section of beach all to yourself. The wildlife here is amazing! You will see pelicans diving for fish, osprey in tree tops, and herons on the beach. Dolphins and manatee are always swimming the shoreline and sea turtles choose this paradise to lay their eggs. Don't forget to bring your camera! Also make sure to look down in the sand, Prehistoric shark teeth and beautiful shells are never hard to find and are abundant on the beaches of the Key. Go shelling at the point of Stump Pass for a truly wonderful experience, then return home to rinse your souvenirs in our Shell Cleaning Station. If you prefer an outdoor shower, ours are temperature controlled and ready for you.

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 most tip of the Island and is next to Stump Pass State Park. Come smell the fresh salt air!

We couldn't have had a better place!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, adult daughter and I stayed at Highview #2 from 3/4/17-3/12/17 and it was a wonderful experience. We have stayed at many places on Manasota Key over the years and this was one of the best!

The one bedroom unit was spacious, updated, very clean and it was supplied with anything you would need for your stay. The private back patio was very nice and was used daily. We were very impressed with all of the amenities from bikes, coolers, kayaks, towels and just about anything you would need to have fun. Peter was very responsive with a few email questions that I asked him while there and the whole rental process was very well run. I would highly recommend Highview for anyone looking for a carefree vacation destination!

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Great place to relax and enjoy the beauty of natural Florida. The property was beautifully landscaped and meticulous! Our unit was quiet and peaceful and we enjoyed eating outside on our patio. We packed a lunch each day, took the beach supplies provided and walked to beautiful Stump Pass Beach State Park. We were unable to take advantage of the bikes, kayaks, paddle boards due to my broken arm, but we look forward to using them the next time we return.

The property was well maintained, stocked and cared for.

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay at the Highview. Location is just minutes walk to the beach and state park where you can enjoy either the beach or the bay. Kayaks, paddle boards, chairs, towels, sunbrellas, coolers and anything you could possibly need. The owner, Peter was accommodating and quick to respond to any requests we had. One of the best things was the location to the beaches and to the nightlife. There are 5 restaurants within walking distance and some even provide transportation. Live bands and sunsets are an added bonus to the location of this vacation gem. I would definitely stay here again!

Super cute, well maintained, clean, great local support, and plenty of toys!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four (2 teens) and stayed at Stump Pass unit 2 from July 30 - August 3, 2017. The property is impeccably maintained and cared for, and nicely appointed/updated. Both owners and property management were readily accessible and eager to answer questions and accommodate requests. We don't have experience with many other Florida Gulf locations, but found this area very laid back, casual, and low key. This property is not on the water, but Manasota Key is literally less than .25 mile wide at this location and a very short walk to the beach, Stump Pass State Park, or the bay. And they have thought of just about everything in terms of beach and bay toys including the carts to transport them easily! Can't say enough good things, and would love to come back. No high rises, no traffic, and lots of fun things to discover and explore.

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!
