About the Owner
(17 traveler reviews)
We rented this property because of the beach, the view, pet friendly, and the ease of travel. It was fantastic for all those reasons. We discovered a relaxing home, dated but comfortable. It has three bedrooms.... The upstairs was perfect for our grandchildren and daughter. We noticed a needed repair and it was attended to in a timely manner. The beach was right there, perfect, turtles nesting each night, were able to walk the pups on the beach with a leash daily without an issue. The property is so welcoming and user friendly. We will visit again to search for the many shark teeth we discovered. The neighbors are friendly too. The beach is perfect! We discovered a few great restaurants on th island also and Publix was quite close. The location is perfect. Sunsets are fantastic and private. You can see the public beach to the north, but no crowds by us;) we came home with lots of shells and shark teeth. There's a boat ramp close by....the hot tub and pool are a bonus. Wish we would have walked the beach at night. We highly recommend this property and will stay again!
Outstanding - Location, Location, Location
I just spent my fourth consecutive year at the Beach House and it was better than ever. It didn't hurt that the weather was perfect for 14 consecutive days. The real test of the place is how long it takes to get into "Florida Mode." I think it was one nano-second this year. The relaxed tone of the Beach House blends right into the wonderful vegetation all around, and the vibrant beach life out front. Nightly sunsets are wonderful and a full moon topped it off. Can't think of anything that would make it better.
For restaurants, I recommend Mango on Dearborn downtown and the Beach Road Wine Bar and Bistro. Kayaking in Lemon Bay with a rental from Allure to see the dolphins, manatees, osprey, eagles, egrets, and more was very special. The bike trails in the area keep getting better, especially the Venice Waterway Trail and the Legacy Trail.

The Best Vacation Beach House Ever!
This clean and well-kept beach house is ideal setting for a family vacation. This coming July will be our third time we are back. Easy access to your own private beach and privacy when you are pool side is the best. The bedrooms are large and when you had too much of the grandkids you can go into your spacious bedroom and escape the calamity to read, nap, or watch TV. When you want to be sociable the house also accommodates family gatherings for meals and games in the spacious great room where you can watch the dolphins swim by.
Restaurants are plentiful at the end of Manasota Key, the family favorite is the Gulf View Grill. Next is Flounder’s Restaurant and Tiki Bar; the grandkids love the outside games and dancing to the live music offered in the evening while the parents and grandparents sip on adult beverages. If you want to cook or grill in there is plenty of shopping close by to stock up the refrigerator. When the sun gets too hot in the afternoon a trip to Jungle Gardens will make you a hero with your children or grandkids.
If you have questions or need recommendations about the area, the beach house, or need something during your stay, just call Terry, he is most eager to help anyone and everyone.
Night walks on the beach are the topper of the day of fun looking for Loggerhead turtles coming up on the beach to lay their eggs. Seeing one is truly a once in a life time experience.
Yes I recommend this beautiful beach house for anyone that is looking for a safe, comfortable accommodation for a memorable family vacation.
Great Vacation House
We just got back from our Manasota Key vacation and had an amazing time. The house was FANTASTIC. Our family has been renting vacation homes for at least 15 years and this house is hands down the best that we have ever stayed in. The location is fantastic. The gulf waters so clear and calm. My 4 year old actually snorkeled for hours finding shells and shark teeth. The beach and the whole property is so private it almost feels like you are on an island. The pool is AWESOME nice and big and plenty of room relaxing. The actual house is great too. Not like we spent much time inside but when we did the bedrooms and bathrooms were large and the rest of the house gave us plenty of room to spread out and make ourselves at home. We were so sad to leave but are already talking about next years trip!
This home was truly beautiful. From the minute we arrived we were in love! Everything we needed was there to help us settle in and enjoy some much needed down -time. The home was spotless and very well kept, it was perfect. In no time we felt we were right at home and began to just enjoy stay. The owners are a dream to work with and we had no problems whatsoever. We enjoyed the beach every day and at night the pool was awesome. We had a wonderful vacation, THANK YOU so much for letting us stay in your home!
Our Home away from Home
Well - what can I say? We have stayed here many, many times and have NEVER been disappointed. The house is always clean and ready for us when we arrive. Terry who manages the property is always so helpful. The view really cannot be matched. Why go somewhere to watch the sunset, when you can sit on your own private deck overlooking the gulf and enjoy the spectacular sunsets every day that you are there! We try to go twice a year because this really feels like our own home each time we visit.
Thank you Susie, Mike and Terry for leaving us with so many magical memories of your lovely home and the Key!
