Best vacation EVER!!!!
From the moment we pulled back the long, private, tree covered, shell driveway we knew we were in for a private vacation. We walked in the house and pulled the curtains back to the most amazing view I have ever experienced at the ocean. There was lots of room in the house and it was very welcoming. We couldnt get enough of the ocean. Between looking for shark teeth, playing in the waves, the pool, looking at new turtle nest each day and napping in the lounge chairs our days were full of fun. The ocean was breathtakingly beautiful. We can not wait to come back. The house had everything we needed. We brought food and our clothes and we were set. Thank you for sharing your home.
You are so welcome! We love for our guests to feel as if they have just walked into their own home on the beach! We look forward to having you return to the Beach House. Susie and Mike
The house location is awesome you feel like you are on your own estate on the beach. Beach access is fairly easy and all there is all basic amenities. The problem is that the place is extremely dated, and by dated I mean the important stuff like bedding, dirty pillows, and extremely old mattress. The place is for sale and it feels like the owners are dedicated to putting zero investment back into the rental to keep it up to date or even change out dirty pillows and old mattress. Little to no beach amenities and the internet is useless (only works intermittently). Also, because they are selling this property we were constantly being bugged by a aggressive realtor to show the house while we were staying at the property. At the rates these owners charge for their rental its extremely tacky and unfortunate that they expect their renters to also be their real estate agent having prospective buyers invade our time.
It's our goal to make our guests as comfortable and satisfied as possible. We only wish they would have let our caretaker know they were not happy with the pillows and mattresses. We would have had new delivered. Linens, bedding and pillows are replaced on a constant basis. We have Comcast high-speed wireless internet at the house, which is the best service on the Key. We do have beach chairs and beach towels for use at the house. While these guests were at the house there was one showing.The realtor called 24 hrs. ahead to scheduled the showing, which only lasted 20 minutes. We are truly sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused. We do try to go the "extra mile" to make our guests comfortable. We know how important vacation time is and always strive to make it a wonderful experience for our guests.
Beautiful Location - Not a 4 Bedroom Home; 2 Beds with Loft
This is a lovely location, private, close to the ocean, beautiful views and a nice pool with hot tub. However, this is a not a 4 bedroom home. This is a 2 bedroom with a huge loft. This is a great property for 2 families with children - parents in the bedrooms, kids in the loft. The problem was we had 5 adults and 2 kids. So, my husband and I had to sleep in the loft with our 4 and 6 year old. Not what we wanted. Even 3 bedrooms with a loft would have been fine. The loft is divided in 2 halves with a twin with trundle on one side and a full size bed on the other. I will say, the loft is not noisy. The wood paneling absorbs quite a bit of sound. It was lack of privacy and the expectation of there being 4 proper bedrooms. Otherwise, a very nice property.
We are so sorry the rental didn't fully meet the expectations of our guest. We always send a detailed description regarding the layout of the home and sleeping accommodations. After sending the description to the family, we received a reply stating it will work perfectly for us. We are happy to hear they liked the location, the property, and the pool and hot tub. We always strive to meet the needs of our guests.
Great location & property. We loved it. Owners are super nice & property mgr, Terry is excellent!
We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay! Yes, Terry is the best! We are so fortunate to have him for our property manager. Wishing you a Christmas filled with Peace and Blessings and a New Year filled with Happiness and Good Health. Susie & Mike
We had a lovely time at the beach house- very comfortable and relaxing. Terry was very helpful and attentive. He even brought over a riding toy for our one year old granddaughter and adjusted the hammock for us. The hot tub and pool were just right and the beach was beautiful! Thanks for the great memories.
We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay! Yes, we are very fortunate to have Terry as caretaker, of the Beach House. He truly enjoys making sure our guests are comfortable and have all of their needs met!
Another Great Stay
Had an opportunity to stay a little longer this year, and the Beach House gets better every day, every year. The Gulf was perfect, running along Manasota Beach Road, and biking on the Venice Waterway and Legacy trails were excellent. Everything worked well in the Beach House.
So glad you once again enjoyed your stay, at the Beach House! We like you to feel when you walk through the door, as if you just walked into your home on the beach!! See you next Spring! Susie and Mike
Manasota Key is known for fossilized sharks teeth and you will find lots of them on the beach!
Fishing is also a favorite past time here! There are also many good restaurants nearby!
