About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Welcome 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 for your enjoyment.

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.

The Sugar Shack has everything, and I mean everything, you need as a home away from home. Plenty of space, plenty of towels. A TV in every room. A fully furnished kitchen with all the cooking gear and basic staples. A nice grill that gets very close heat-wise to my "egg" to sear those steaks to perfection. Games, books, ironing board, even extra flip flops. Sit on the upstairs porch, sip a nice cabernet and watch the sun set into the ocean. No, the cabernet is not included, but the wine refrigerator is!

The location is ideal for a non-touristy atmosphere. If you want a low-key spring break, this is the place. The beach is a football field away. The place has a wagon to pull their furnished beach supplies with everything from plastic pails to beach umbrellas and chairs. The center of the island is a short walk featuring a few restaurants; just be careful as there are no sidewalks; or you can walk the beach down. The local pizzeria was very good and we tried one restaurant (White Elephant Pub), and was not impressed; but maybe the off-key karaoke didn't help. The other restaurants did look good, but we ventured to the mainland for a couple of nights. Publix is 5 minutes away on the mainland as well.

Many times it's a hit or miss of what the rental has to offer. Some have the basics. Some have a few extras. Therefore we bring everything from a sharp knife, to a decent non-skid pan, to seasonings. Didn't need to even unload that box from the car.

Very Polished Island Experience

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our short stay at the Sugar Shack. We had spent a month in Rotonda and wished to extend our stay an additional week-and-a-half, and we were lucky David had availability at his lovely property. We found the Sugar Shack to be very clean, tastefully decorated, and well equipped. We liked the large flat-screen televisions, the quality bedding, and the nice appliances. David also does an outstanding job in organizing things for your stay -- from setting the electronic locks to assisting you with neat, but tricky "Nest" automated thermostat. If you wish to stay on Manasota Key, just a short walk from the Gulf, you will not go wrong with this rental!

A sweet stay

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at the Sugar Shack for a week at Christmas 2016 with my family. It was comfortable and well stocked with the necessities. The short walk to the beach was a bonus. I really liked the how-to videos provided by the owner who always responsive to questions.

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
