About Amy

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.

Why Amy chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Casa Sangria is a guest favorite! Perfect location & all new furnishings throughout done by our very talented interior designer with numerous FREE amenities! Casa Sangria is one of our popular 6 quaint, quiet beach cottages - just steps to the shore. Created by our ultra-talented interior designer with all new furnishing, Casa Sangria enjoys many, many happy repeat guests. An inviting, open concept beach house designed with all new furnishings on a cute, quiet island street filled with palm trees & low-key friendly residents & vacationers. We welcome friendly, respectful vacationing guests as this is a nice upscale beach community. We are family-friendly & we actively seek guest suggestions as we are constantly making improvements to enhance our guests' experience. Our house-keepers are the best around! Our beach is one of the best places on earth to find the pre-historic sharks teeth the area is famous for! They make perfect free souvenirs!

What makes this house unique

Remember when you didn't have a care in the world? When your happiness consisted of fun, fresh air, and a sunny day? You can have all that and much more at blue starfish beach resort. Reliving those carefree days is easy when you can watch dolphins jump nearby in Lemon Bay, hunt for pre-historic sharks tooth treasures plentiful on our stunning beach, get your game on with outdoor Ping-Pong family tournament, or relax with a good book in your inviting beach cottage with margarita in hand.

* Attractive brand new heated, courtyard swimming pool with Massage Therapy Jets & Glass-tiled Waterfall in resort's common patio area - enjoy!

We treat our guests like family. We put every 'comfort of home' into these charming beach cottages so guests can fully relax. We are proud to say many of our guests are repeats - making blue starfish an annual beach tradition.

Fantastic Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and son traveled from Michigan to stay in this quaint home on Manasota Key the week of March 4-11. It's a fantastic home located in a great quiet community. The house when we arrived was immaculately cleaned which was a nice surprise as we have showed up for rentals before that were clearly not ready for new tenants. Everything about this house was great, they layout was very well designed, new appliances, fresh paint, and a very nice heated pool that was also super clean. The ocean is only a 3 minute walk from the house which is awesome, no need to get in the car and drive to the beach. They also provide a beach umbrella, kids toys, and beach chairs. I'd highly recommend staying here, we sure look forward to a return visit ourselves!

Everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything we needed for a stay at the beach. It felt very thought out and not thrown together. The island was beautiful and quiet. We highly recommend staying here!

Great family getaway for a terrific price!

  • 5 of 5

The beds were super comfy and it was a minute walk to the beach or the bay. Perfect for a family on a budget!

Cute little bungalow

  • 5 of 5

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.

Good news! We now have flexible arrival & departure days. 2 night minimum stay. We just lowered ALL rates to more than offset this website's service fee! (even though it is not our fee-it is being charged by this website) mainly a short-term stay place-sorry no monthly discounts. no student groups or noisy groups - this is nice, quiet, relaxing vacation community. credit cards accepted. Reservations are non-refundable like most houses so we highly suggest travel insurance for peace of mind. We are proud to say we have many happy repeat guests.
