About Lisa Smith

My family and I enjoy the water and the gulf. Everyday is unique and we never know what adventure we will experience when we are here. We enjoy seeing the turtles, fishing, snorkeling and biking the most. We have even rented scuba gear to explore our beach. We can't wait to live here permanently some day.

Lisa Smith purchased this house in 2015

Why Lisa Smith chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We bought this property because of the fantastic sunsets and the seclusion of the property. The moment we walked through the front door, we knew we would not find another place like this. This beach was unique and after looking for several years, we chose this beach for the variety of activities specifically shelling and collecting sharks teeth. We'll never tire of watching for dolphins. You can't get any closer to the water.

What makes this house unique

Our favorite part of the house is the expansive lanai. It has everything we need to relax. The second we walk in the door, we can relax and downshift into island time.

The property was wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This vacation consisted of two families, one a family of four with kids ages 9 and 6, the other was a family of five with kids 6, 3, and 1 1/2. It accommodated everyone just fine and the kids had plenty to do. From water sports to board games and plenty of space for meals and dinners we would recommend this property. The owner was also attentive and very nice.

Fantastic Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We were the second family with jpearl, and I second everything already said. This was an extremely comfortable and clean house with all necessities, and Manasota Key is a hidden treasure of Florida's west coast. All 8 persons (read personalities), kids (11-16) and adults, enjoyed themselves immensely!

The ocean is your backyard in this beautiful and quiet neighborhood, and the water temperature was always 68-72 degrees...lovely for December! There is a 10-second walk to the quiet beach with very little foot traffic - the public beach is over half mile to the north. The available beach towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, sand toys, kayaks, inflatable tubes, paddle board, skim board, boogie board, fishing poles, and shark tooth screen tools made for many fun-packed memorable days on the beach. And the outdoor showers helped keep the sand where it belongs: outside.

The town is a short drive away for convenient shopping and restaurants. But the full kitchen and screened lanai with a large BBQ area makes staying in for meals an easy choice.

There was one day with cold cloudy weather, but at this house our vacation was not stalled. The house is equipped for any type of weather: it is pleasantly temperature-controlled for hot or cold, has multiple large-screen TVs and a game closet, and there is a hot tub near the back patio area. And of course the beach is always available for calming walks and shell-collecting during any weather.

There is also an elevator from the front garage area to the kitchen/main floor, but we did not use it; it would be convenient for those who require an alternative to stairs, and with the large upstairs living room with a wall of windows, or the screened lanai off this room, there are convenient observation areas of the beach without having to go to the beach.

Most windows provide fantastic views of the beach and ocean at any time of the day, and the sound of the ocean waves lull you to sleep! Even the front yard is well-manicured beautiful and set back from the main street. We would repeat this vacation in a heartbeat!

Amazing Family Vacation on Manasota Key

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful week at this home on Manasota Key! We were 2 families with 4 children aging from 16 to 11.

Home: The house is amazing. Very spacious with plenty of room for a large family with amazing views of the Gulf. Everything you could want in a gourmet kitchen to cook is available. The grounds are well manicured and very inviting. There is a hot tub as well.

Beach: The beach is very private and with direct access to your own private area of ocean and sandy beach. We enjoyed the kayaks, paddle board and the fishing gear that were at the house. The kids enjoyed finding lots of sharks teeth and shells on the beach! We saw many people fishing but didn't catch anything ourselves.

Access: While you are on the key, it's still easy to access all grocery stores and shopping you could need. There is a Walmart, Target and Publix just off the island.

Restaurants: There are many great restaurants close by both on the key and right off. Many choices for all taste buds.

Sunsets: Every night, they were amazing and so beautiful. The porch is a great place to sit and watch the beautiful views of the sunset on the gulf waters.

Activities: Allure rentals is 10 minutes away, where you can rent a jet boat, pontoon boat, jet skis. Taking one of these out on the bay or the gulf is a must!

Overall: This property is amazing and the surrounds are great as well. It's easy enough to get to from several different airports. You could stay at the house and beach all week and never leave or venture out with plenty to do. This vacation home will fit the needs of many different traveling types! You won't be disappointed.

Private Scenic Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The highlight of this beautiful home is the fact that you are a matter of steps from the beach in a very secluded setting. The very spacious and tastefully decorated home sits on a property with more than 100 palm trees and lush tropical landscaping. Start your day with a stroll down the quiet beach, searching for shells and enjoying sea life and birds. Enjoy the warm Florida sun during the day, utilizing kayaks, paddle boards and other items furnished with the home. Wrap up the day with your cocktail of choice as the sun sets over the Gulf of Mexico. There is a spacious screened in lanai that provides a perfect space for entertaining-- complete with plenty of seating and a high end grill and cooking surface. Should you have the desire to take a break away from this vacation home, you can venture a short matter of miles down the beach to an area with restaurants and watering holes. Perfect for a family to enjoy, or a group of couples. We had never visited this part of Florida, yet will certainly venture back to enjoy this vacation home!

Gorgeous Home on Secluded Beach!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our five children, and I stayed in this beautiful home for two weeks this past summer. It is truly amazing! The pictures on VRBO are great but the other reviewers are correct, they don't do it justice. It says the home is 3400 sq feet but our full time home is that same square footage and this home felt twice as big. Lots and lots of outdoor spaces and patios to hang out too. The beach is beautiful and the water was very clear our entire vacation. Several pods of dolphins swim by at the same time each evening and we looked forward to watching them. All of Manasota Key is very secluded and quiet. The estate is on a huge property with lush landscaping, and plenty of parking for several cars, a boat, etc. There were kayaks and stand up paddle boards that we used nearly every day right from the beachfront property. Our two teenage boys slept in the downstairs casita and we used their living room for our board games. The kitchen is huge and has everything you could possibly need. We cooked dinner most of the nights we were there. The screened in lanai has an awesome outdoor kitchen and grill that we used to cook delicious steaks. We started and ended each evening on the lanai! The home is very upscale with high end appliances, furniture, hardware, and decor. There are so many little things that made a huge impact. The dedicated, ice cold, purified, water tap, several wine fridges, drink coolers, wet bar ice maker, laundry room with new LG W/D, ironing board, and sink were all so useful. There are two large, separate living areas upstairs, and three bedrooms with their own ensuite bathrooms. Downstairs is a connected casita with it's own bedroom, bathroom, and living area. The beach is virtually private. We would sometimes see the neighbors that live on one side of the property when we were at the beach, but that's it. We enjoyed meeting and chatting with them and their sweet dog. :> There is a Publix, Walmart, and several restaurants just 10 minutes a way or so by car. The caretaker is a jewel too and he dropped by on our first day to introduce himself and answer any questions we had. If you are looking for a quiet, beautiful beach and a gorgeous estate, this will fit the bill. The sunsets over the water each evening are amazing. Do not miss them!!! We hope to be back next year!!!

Unbelievable Property

  • 5 of 5

This house is unbelievable. Pictures do not do it justice. Our family of 10 stayed there for a week in July 2016. The beach is literally 100 feet from the house. Property is equipped with everything you need, kayaks, paddle boards, etc. Great place to take kids! Very private beach.
