The Key is true Florida. Unspoiled by high-rises and high prices. This is why you will find an abundance of shells and prehistoric shark teeth on shore, the highest density of nesting turtles anywhere on the Gulf Coast of Florida, world class bay, ocean and shore fishing. Everyday there is something new to discover.

About our home: The master suite has a king size bed, walk in closet and 2 vanities, shower and tub in the bath. Another outdoor shower is accessible from the master suite. Both bathrooms have hair dryers and the master offers a magnifying mirror. Bedroom #2 has a queen size bed. Bedroom #3 has a full size futon, but can also be used as a study as there is a desk as well. All 3 bedrooms have a 42' cable tv. The living room has a 47' cable tv. All 3 bedrooms have large closets with hangers and laundry bins. Bathroom #2 has a vanity and shower. You will find stainless steel appliances in the kitchen. The refrigerator has a double freezer and an exterior ice/water dispenser. The stove has a double oven. The dishwasher, quiet. The washer and dryer, located near the master, assure that time is not wasted at a laundromat. The home has dependable wifi and all four t.v.'s have extensive cable.

The property sits on a canal with boat dockage and access to both the inter-coastal waterway and the Gulf. There has been a mating pair of Manatees and their baby in the canal as well as a White Egrets nest, for years. There are always fish to watch.

Beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, several sizes of coolers and a few floaty devices are provided.

The large property provides privacy and ample room for recreation. It also provides plenty of room should you have a boat trailer to park.

In addition to the beach that is only steps away, Stump Beach Pass State Park is just a short walk away and offers pristine beaches, ample wildlife and hiking trails.

About Beth Tapprich

This home has been in our family for 65 years.

We look forward to hearing from you and hopefully reserving your stay at our beautiful Palm View property.

William and Beth

Why Beth Tapprich chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Location, location, location. Our home is in the highly desirable South end of the Key. Not only on the South end, but located midway between the restaurant/tiki bar/live music area and the serene Stump Beach Pass State Park. Just a short walk to both areas. We have open access to the beach. You do not have to cross private property. Only a few streets on the Key are configured to allow this.

What makes this house unique

This is our home. It is furnished as a home. You will find quality furnishings and amenities. The best part of this home is the advantages of the canal. You don't have to be a boater to enjoy the view of the mangroves, herons, fish and manatees. You can rent a kayak and it will be delivered to the house and picked up. You can launch right from the yard and be in beautiful Lemon Bay paddling with the dolphins in no time. The outdoor shower is great for washing the sand from your feet after a walk on the beach at sunset or for your daily showers. Hot and cold water.

Excellant vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and well maintained meeting our expectations. Its location on a canal with easy access to the Gulf met our boating needs and near good eating locations. Fishing could have been better which was affected by the high water and water temperature. Grand daughter loved the shark teeth hunting on the beach. Would recommend. Dwight

Everything about our stay was wonderful. The home was very comfortable, clean, and up to date, with all the accommodations one would need..(.i.e. iron, laundry , beach chairs, coolers...etc.)

It was just a short walk to the beach, with very private beaches. Would have loved to have had a wagon to transport the chairs, umbrellas, and coolers back and forth to the beach; but considering that was the only exercise I had all week....it was all good. I give this vacation and the home and the owners a 5 star review!!!

Beth and her husband left very detailed instructions and locations of activities and resturants which were very helpful. Thank you both for a very welcoming and comfortable stay.

All the comforts of home and more !

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this home. It was spotlessly clean upon our arrival, and is nicely appointed with comfy furniture and updated TV's and WiFi. This home has everything you need for a great beach / fishing vacation. The beach is just across the road about a block away, and the owner has recently built a great new dock so you can keep your boat securely in the canal right beside the house. We look forward to returning again and again.

Owner's Response: The dock is just one more amenity or feature of our home for our guests to enjoy. Our fishing guests (like yourself) appreciate the convenience of having their boat on the property and our non-boating guests can enjoy sitting over the water and getting close up views of the manatees, sea hares, fish and all the birds that like to fish from the dock, like the blue herons and egrets. The greatest compliment we receive is all our repeat guests, such as yourself. We look forward to hosting you again. Beth

Property was comfortable and perfect for our vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was excellent. Home was clean and ready for guests. Beds are comfortable and linens are high quality. Home was well stocked with cleaning supplies, paper products. Well stocked shed provided all the beach assesories needed for fun in the sun. There's a new dock perfect for a kayak or hanging lights to see night time fish activity. This was our fourth consecutive visit and we are always happy with the presentation of the home. Thank you Beth for making your guests feel like a welcomed member of the family!

Better than Home!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Beth's beautiful home several times. Everytime has been perfect. The home is spacious, clean and well stocked. I love the wood floors and ceiling. Comfy beds, well stocked kitchen, clean bathrooms with a bonus outdoor shower for rinsing off after the beach. The beach is steps away, clean, clear waters! Perfect for my grandson because there is not a steep drop off. Not crowded and filled with shells and sharks teeth. We swam every morning and evening. Great resturants close by, Flounders was our favorite this time. We had 4 adults and 1 4yr old with plenty of room for all. There are beach chairs, toys and umbrellas in the shed. Everything you need is there. Beth is easy to work with and responds to questions promptly. We shopped on Dearborn and explored a new area daily. Many great places nearby but this feels private. Photos are accurate but do not show how great this home is. I have recommended this home to friends and will continue to return. Thank you for sharing your home Beth! Tammy, Joe, Jayden, Jake and Justen.

Owner's Response: Hi Juss, I have heard from other guests that our photos do not do the home justice and I have to agree! It is hard to photograph serenity , comfort, quiet and the feeling of home. We are pleased that we could host your family for your third visit! Introducing your grandson to the area and beach must have been fun. As always, thanks for the care you gave our home during your stay. I hope to host you and your family for a fourth visit! Warmest regards, Beth

Beautiful home in an excellent location on Manasota Key

  • 5 of 5

This charming home is a very short walk to the beach and well outfitted for anyone looking to enjoy an oceanside getaway. We stayed with our son (9) and twin girls who are not quite 2 years old. There was plenty of room for all 5 of us to relax and enjoy our time at the beach. The home is beautiful as well as comfortable- you can definitely tell that great effort has been made to ensure the comfort of guests as the linens, beds and other furniture are what you would expect to find in a personal home instead of a vacation rental. We loved that the home was well stocked with beach towels, beach chairs, sand toys etc. Not having to bring these items saved us considerable room in our vehicle. You seriously only need to bring your clothes, food and sunscreen- leave the rest at home because this house already has it! Upon learning that we would be bringing 2 toddlers, Beth graciously offered us the use of a pack n play meaning we only had to bring one with us. I cannot say enough to convey how lovely this home is and well situated for a perfect vacation in this area or how easy Beth was to work with. She is detail oriented and quickly answered any question we had. If you are planning a trip to Englewood/Manasota Key then look no further than this lovely home.
