Overview

Property Details

Updated: Dec 4, 2016
150 FEET TO THE BEACH! House, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleep 5 STARS 6 AWARDS!

***DEALS!*** DISCOUNT ON REMAINING DECEMBER WEEKS AND TO JANUARY 21st! CONTACT ME FOR DETAILS! WE ARE 5 STARS AND 12 YEARS RENTING OUR PRIVATE HOME!!

A little about the Beach Cottage. It is the original home on the property and sits independent on a large double lot next to the 3/1 Beach House. Both are private and are in a excellent location being 150 feet from beach. It is very private and unique because of the location and all of the landscaping. We purchased the house several years ago from a local artist who had it for 32 years and have renovated it back to a house from an art studio the prior owner made it into. It has all been upgraded to to the quality of a new home but we restored all of the cypress and terrazzo to keep it's Old Florida Beach House charm. There is no other home this cool or romantic to rent on the Key it looks like it came straight off a HGTV episode! It is a rare find on the key because of it's quite location in a residential neighborhood as well as its 2 lots give you lots of open area with botanical gardens making you feel like your in you own private beach compound. It is located 1/2 mile from the state park and 3/4 of a mile from the restaurants, bars with live entertainment and shops.

The BEST PART is you will find yourself a "stone's throw" (150 ft) from a wide private beach on the Gulf of Mexico.

Since this is our family vacation home you will find it's like staying at a friend’s home not a hotel. It is furnished like a home and you will find everything you will need with the exception of a beach towel and your clothes. (ALL ROOMS HAVE CABLE TELEVISION AND WIRELESS INTERNET) You can see more pictures and see our awards and reviews on several other sites. Google "A must See Manasota Key!" or " Manasota Key Beach House! A Must See!"

Tripadvisor 5 Star Top Rated! 6 AWARDS

Need more space the 3/1 MAIN HOUSE is adjacent and sleeps 6 to 8 and has a Billard room with a Brunswick drop pocket pool table!

This quaint beach house is within easy walking distance to a Tiki

bar on the bay, fine dining and casual restaurants as well as a

convenience store and other shopping and boardwalk. We have simply

tried to think of everything you would want, or need, to make your

vacation a very special experience. We are literally 150 feet from

one of the most beautiful beaches that Florida has to offer, as well

as being only 600 feet from Lemon Bay. Bring your boat, use one of

the nearby ramps, rent a dock or moor on the bay. You will have

direct access to the Gulf of Mexico within minutes. This is a

renowned fished and boating area. You can surf cast off the beach

from anywhere on the island, or charter boats for tarpon, flounder,

grouper, mackerel or redfish.

It doesn't get any better than this!

This home is the perfect getaway from the bustle and noise of

everyday life, or to enjoy the glamour and excitement of Florida's

Gulf Coast. The choice is yours:

Spend a day at the beach, just doing...nothing

Explore protected wildlife areas and bird sanctuaries

Visit Stump Pass State Park

Dine at one of the local restaurants.

This home is only minutes (0.4 miles) from some of the finest dining

and nightlife in Florida. The area also has plenty of opportunities

for shopping, golf, boating, fishing and much more. We are within

easy driving distance of many of Florida's most popular cities and

attractions. Venice and Sarasota are a short drive, and provide many

cultural attractions and unusual shopping opportunities. We are

within a 2-3 hour drive of Tampa/St.Petersburg, Orlando (Disney

World), Fort Myers and Naples.

About the Owner

I am from Colorado my fiancé Caroline is from Rhode Island. I moved to Florida back in 1995. Both of us work in the medical field. I am a USCG Master Captain and a NAUI dive instructor and we both spend a lot of time on our boat at our beach or on the motorcycle. If you stay at our home and want rent a boat, charter a fishing trip, go scuba diving or rent a Harley Davison and ride around I can help you out. Caroline is the tour guide and shopping guide person and can tell you where all the malls and outlet stores are in Sarasota which is 1to the 5 to 20 minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From Trip Advisor Reviews-



"Our week at the Manasota Key Beach House in March of 2010 was thoroughly delightful. The house was as advertised: small but clean, comfortable, and up-to-date with freshened paint and newly purchased appliances. No, you can't actually see the beach from the beach house. But it is very close and there are no roads to cross to get there.



We loved the beach access (I calculated 200' down a narrow lane that seemed like it was ours alone.) The beach was great with shells and sharks teeth in abundance. Also, it was an uncrowded beach that allowed an easy walk to the public beach in one direction and to Stump Pass Beach State Park in the other. We greatly appreciated the outdoor foot shower facility. It saved dragging a lot of sand into the beach house.



Manasota Key is out of the hubbub of Florida's more well known tourist attractions and that made it more appealing to us. There are one or two very good restaurants right on the island, and it is a short drive to many more on the mainland.



We also made easy day trips, north to Sarasota and south to Punta Gorda. Fort Myers and Naples are not much farther.



All in all, a very nice place to have a quiet vacation. We recommend it."

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely cottage and didn't want to leave!! So relaxing , it was steps to the beach. I collected dozens of sea shells to bring home. The cottage had plenty of room for the two of us and the bathroom was newly renovated Manasota Key has a lot of charm ....

And we felt right at home in this awesome beach cottage. Scott, the owner was very helpful and nice to talk to. Will definitely be coming back.

Best Cottage on Manasota Key

  • 5 of 5

I have been coming to Manasota Key for years and this is a cute romantic place that is well decorated, clean and comfortable. As stated in the description you feel you are in a friends home. The location is one of the best we have ever had and it is a quite neighbourhood. The owner Scott was great to deal with also. We will defiantly be back again

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet, non tourist area this place is perfect.

We spent a week here, and had the best time. Cottage house was perfect for us, 2 adults, 2 kids and a beagle. Beach is only 150 feet away, need a drink or need to go to the bathroom, house is right there. The beach is full of shells and shark teeth. My 13 year old even got out of bed early(7am)to go look for shark teeth!!

The grounds for the main house/cottage house were very nice. Very tropical.

Scott left several recommendations for restaurants and things to do. We tried several of the restaurants.

We will definitely be back.

Delightful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay, just a few steps to a beautiful beach. As kayakers we appreciated being able to put in and paddle to the park at the end of the island. I would recommend this spot for any couple looking to be close to the ocean.
