About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Welcome home, to Paradise.

Enjoy your getaway at this this spacious, well appointed home with updated furnishing, top of the line appliances, granite counter tops and cabinets throughout, situated just steps from the Gulf of Mexico beaches.

The Sugar Shack has been recently updated with new ceramic tile throughout the living areas & kitchen and new carpet in the bedrooms. It comes complete with WIFI and high-speed internet, if you choose to stay "on the grid", however after a day or so in paradise, getting off-the-grid becomes much easier.

The Master Bathroom is finished with a granite counter top, ceramic tile floor and combination tub shower. Guest bathroom has a granite counter top and a ceramic tile stall shower.

All 3 bedrooms have over-sized closets and televisions.

Imagine being located on Manasota Key and staying less than 150 yards from the beach!

Lounge in the sun or under the moonlight on 2nd floor large deck, or enjoy some R&R on the large covered ground floor lanai with ceiling fans to keep you cool.

If the beach is more your thing, which we suspect it probably is, fill up the Sugar Shack's beach-wagon with the supply of beach toys for the kids, rafts, chairs, or noodles to enjoy the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

If fishing is more up your alley, fish from the beach, or from Lemon Bay, both are under 150 short steps away from the home.

Shell & Shark Tooth hunting is a popular way to also pass the time on Manasota Key, you wont come home empty handed.

Several restaurants with live entertainment are a short jaunt from the home (walking distance for most), more than enough places to visit a new one every night during a weeks stay.

Golf, Jet Ski's, Charter Fishing, Kayaking, Paddle-boarding, Dolphin Watching Tours, Bicycle, and Boat rentals are all available on the island.

Come experience why the Sugar Shack on Manasota Key is such a popular destination for our guests of all ages.

Wonderful! Will book again!

  • 5 of 5

House was cute, cute cute! A short walk to the beach. Everything you could want was provided (kitchen equipment, beach gear, laundry, etc.) The owners let us know prior to arrival that the cart used to ferry items to the beach had a broken handle. But they provided a replacement during our stay. The home was clean and comfortable. We especially enjoyed the large family room with sectional couch. By choice, we stayed in and had all of our meals at home. We are very seasoned veterans of Manasota Key/Englewood, so it was not for lack of wonderful dining opportunities nearby. I would recommend the property to family and friends.

The Sugar Shack is simply splendid!

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible time at this beautiful home. Situated just a few yards from the beach, the house is decorated the way you would envision a true beach home to look. From the bin of flip flops awaiting you inside the door, to the closet full of beach toys and fishing gear, the home owners thought of everything you could possibly need for a stay at the beach! I want to truly thank the owners for letting us share their little piece of paradise. The house is more than accommodating for a larger family and is stocked full of all the essentials you may need but don't want to drag with you on vacation such as strollers and playpens for the babes, board games and an X-box for the bigger kids and for us adults, a kitchen stocked full of gadgets, and a supply of reading materials to enjoy outside on the custom built deck... just to name a few.

Due to the owners attention to details, I can't think of one thing that would have made our stay more enjoyable! We definitely recommend staying at the Sugar Shack to anyone who is looking for a getaway with fantastic views, an abundance of recreational activities near-by, and a charming place to relax at the end of the day. Our weekend was full of smiles and I'm sure yours will be too.

Thanks again for our weekend escape. It was splendid. We'll be back for sure!

Tom, Nicole & Parker

Nice place

  • 4 of 5

Sugar Shack was a short walk to the beach. The house was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. Beds were comfortable; linens and kitchen equipment were well supplied. The owners were responsive and helpful with questions and concerns. The beach umbrellas could use replacing but beach chairs worked. Location was well suited to getting on and off the key, as well as being close to local restaurants on the island. I would recommend this property to friends who needed a lot of space; however, stairs may be an issue for some folks because kitchen/dining and living room area were on upper level. I enjoyed my stay there.

Comfortable abode with plentiful amenities in authentic Manasota Key

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed a one week stay, and were thoroughly impressed with the accommodations. We actually feel bad that it was just the two of us, as this property is really decked out to comfortably fit a large family or group of friends. From multiple big-screen televisions, capable internet, and an x-box for the kids, you're not far from being connected to the "real world." But it's easy to forget about all the gadgets, too. Super comfortable couches and beds, a very large kitchen with appliances that I was a bit jealous of, a great walk-out deck with built-in benches, two full-baths, and a large kitchen table really helps to make this seem less like a cottage and more like a luxury suite.

The beach on Manasota Key is one of the best I've ever been to, and it's a very short walk from this cottage. Likewise, this property is within about a block and a half of the better restaurants on the key. It's a very comfortable and conveniently-located place.

We'll be back next year, but likely with a few more people in tow!

Get away weekend

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful time while staying at the Sugar Shack in Manasota Key. The home is equipped with anything and everything you could think of. The home is spotless and decorated with an at home feel and touch. The home is spacious with indoor and outdoor accommodations for all ages. Another plus for me was not needing to drive anywhere. The beach is beautiful and you can walk to it in about 5 minutes. There are restaurants and a convenience store within walking distance as well. I can't wait to go back to the Sugar Shack. Didn't want to leave.
