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 bicycles, 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 has everything you need for an amazing vacation.

Location, location, location! Just a 60 second walk to our deeded beach path and situated on the southern tip of the Key, you could almost throw a coconut from the Gulf to the Bay here.

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.

If you've been here before, you know its allure. If it's your first time, get ready for a soul refreshing journey! Be sure to enjoy our beach cruiser Bikes, Stand Up Paddle Boards and Kayaks to explore as well! They're FREE to use and included with your rental.

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 next to Stump Pass State Park. Come smell the fresh salt air!

The property was exactly as described and even better in person. The owners Peter and Mary Jo are very easy to work with and very responsive to our questions. They have created a very easy vacation spot since everything you need on right there on the property. You can park the car and walk or bike to most things on the Key. The beach is a very short walk and Stump Pass park is at the end of the road. We made it a point to use everything the property had to offer and suggest you try as well to make your stay more memorable.

Perfect Quick Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We booked this place with very little research, looking for a last minute beach getaway and totally hit the jackpot. The room was spotless, and provided everything you could ask for and more. Pete was there to greet us, and was very pleasant and accommodating. The sleep sofa is not the most comfortable, but I have never found a sleep sofa that was! After a day at the beach I’ll pass out just about anywhere so it was not a problem. This place has many of the the things that are often lacking in rental homes such as sharp knives, quality sheets, and plenty of towels, and a nice private patio. The 60 second walk to the beach is not an exaggeration, and the abundance of beach toys and accessories is the cherry on top. The key is a great little beach community, with a quiet Florida feel and free shuttle service to the local restaurants so you can truly relax with no worries!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review! It was a pleasure having you as our guests and we're so glad you enjoyed your stay! Thanks for noticing some of the simple things we offer like sharp knives, quality sheets, plenty of towels, and a nice private patio as well. You make a great point about sleeper sofas. Although top quality with an upgraded top of the line matress, they merely serve as a budget friendly way to sleep children or additional guest in a one bedroom accomidation if needed. Glad you enjoyed all the toys and the new free island transportation by golf cart! We look forward to having you back again soon! All the best, Peter & MaryJo

Owner's Response: Hello David. Thank you for your feedback but unfortunately it was unclear. After receiving your review I reached out to you immediately and have not heard back. We take great pride in our property and fix any issues that may arise immediately. We can only do something if you say something. Upon your arrival I provided you with my personal cell number and our agents number as well. Unfortunately, you did not reach out to either one of us during your one week stay. Your suite was thoroughly cleaned and inspected after your departure and found to be in wonderful condition. The guests just before and after you have had no issues and enjoyed there stays. As I reflect on your comfort level, I can only conclude that a one bedroom suite with a sleeper sofa may not have been the best fit for you and three other Seniors traveling together. Maybe a couple one bedroom suites next to each other, or a wonderful two bedroom suite would work better next time. Hope to hear back from you soon with any details. Best, Peter

SImply a pleasure

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. Unit was just as advertised. The availability of kayaks, bikes, and close proximity to many beaches was great. Morning yoga in the center was also a pleasant surprise. Would certainly stay here again!

great stay at Stump Pass Place

  • 5 of 5

Very cozy place, clean, full of amenities, charming and above all: very welcoming, especially by Peter and MaryJo, who attend the place in a great way. All questions or matters were solved instantly and in a very pleasant way. Everything possible.

We very much enjoyed staying in suite 4 and we love the place. And the surroundings, i.e. the beach, the State park and the cycling-possibilities.

Very comfortable, clean condo only a short walk to the beach. Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Our one bedroom condo unit was clean and very comfortable. Unit had every amenity you need for a home. Signs and directions made it very easy to navigate around the complex and beach that was a short walk away. The complex had every toy available for the beach, kayaks, bikes, paddle boards, coolers, chairs, etc. The beaches are very nice and restaurants within a short drive. Highly recommended place to stay.

Steps to Deeded Beach Access

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 home base.
