Our favorite childhood memories are from building giant sandcastles, jumping the warm waves, hunting for the perfect seashell & eating tasty key lime pies with our grandparents on sunny florida vacations. My husband & I met on vacation after college in near-by Longboat Key - introduced by grandparents! So Florida vacations have already been near to our hearts. My husband Frank grew up visiting Manasota Key beaches with grandparents. We spent years looking for the perfect location on the Key to call our own & finally blue starfish beach resort was born! It is our absolute pleasure to introduce our guests to this little bit of paradise, perfect for making fond beach memories that will last a life time.

The beds were super comfy and it was a minute walk to the beach or the bay. Perfect for a family on a budget!
Very clean. Outstanding location with only a minute walk to the beach for spectacular sunsets and beach walks. Beds for eight, but only one little bathroom would be a bit tight. Everything needed was included, and the spa pool was perfect. Would gladly return if we visited the area again.
Our family of four loved Casa Sangria! Plenty of room for us and perfect location with the beach only a few minutes walk away.
We really loved the area - we had a section of the beach all to ourselves each day and had great food at Flounders and a few other places. Manasota Key is definitely very relaxed and quiet, but that's exactly what we were looking for.
The kids (2 and 4) really enjoyed the pool/spa and it was a great size for them.
It was so nice having our own grill and sitting area right outside so we could bring the baby monitor out and enjoy a cocktail outside while we grilled.
We had an amazing vacation here and will definitely be back!
We just left after 2 weeks at the beach and everything was wonderful! The house is very well maintained and the owners make sure everything is perfect, they go so far as to contacting the guest to make sure everything is perfect.
We have rented beach houses for 15 years and the condition of the property, amenities and support are like none other. Even the maintenance and cleaning teams have personalized service.
The Casa Sangria is an adorable cottage style house that is cute and decorated very nicely. The beds were comfortable and place was clean. A bottle of wine and two glasses greeted us at the door! We loved that it had ample towels including beach towels for our use and it was a minutes walk to the beach or Lemon Bay. Washer and dryer and an outside shower was very nice to have. No need to hunt anyone down or find an "office" for a key because they give you a code to get in. There is an air conditioner in every room. The sound drowns out any noise from your close neighbors. Besides a few minor issues that were resolved quickly, the only other thing that we could have used for 6 people was a larger living area and bathroom (and a second bathroom). Everything we needed, including beach chairs, umbrella and boogie boards to appliances and closet space was there! Amy was the best part! From the very start, she was personable and phone friendly. She did everything to make our stay comfortable and relaxing and answered all our questions. She has a binder there with all kinds of detailed information in it and worth taking the time to read. She is very pleasant to work with and doesn't mind you calling her. I was impressed with her ease and comfort and pleasant communication. I gave it 4 stars ONLY because the size of the living room is quite small for 6-10 people (there is a couch and side chair), and the bathroom sink area is tight - shower; no tub). We made it work just fine with 4 adults and two small children. I would recommend this place to visit keeping in mind those above things I mentioned. There are also other cottages she has available to consider that have these things. I would give my rating as a 4.7!!
My friends and I had a very relaxing and wonderful vacation. The cottage was perfect for us, and the beaches were beautiful and just a short distance away. We were able to glimpse dolphins while on the beach. There were no crowds on the beach. Just perfect for relaxing.
New swim spa in resort's common patio area with beautiful waterfall and relaxing massage therapy jets. Hunt for pre-historic shark's teeth the area is famous for. Fortunately they are plentiful on our beach & make the perfect free souvenirs!

Grill the fish you caught at Lemon Bay with our 2 bbq grills & dine alfresco at our patio tables out back.
