Property description

Located on the charming Island of Manasota Key you can enjoy fun stuff such as windsurfing, canoeing, Jet-boating, fishing, bicycling, shell-searching on 3 different Gulf Beaches, ocean swimming as well as swimming in the heated pool on site, grilling on your patio or being served in local speciality restaurants, spend a little money in various gift shops or visit the Town Center Mall in Port Charlotte just 15 minutes away which also offers 8 movie theaters. For the Baseball fans the Stadium is within short distance. Depending on the time of the year, there are many different fairs, art shows and open air music festivals within this area. The Port Charlotte Cultural Center with Theater, Library and different classrooms that offer anything fun from dance lessons to computer classes is located within a short distance.

Private Gulf of Mexico Beach access: Residents of Manasota Key have the privilege of enjoying a quiet and serene non-public beach. It can be reached by foot within 3-5 minutes. If you prefer to mingle and enjoy the Public Beaches, you have the choice of the 'Englewood Beach' in the historical 'down town' and the 'Stump Pass Beach' at the southern tip of the Island. Both Beaches can be reached within a few minutes by car of bicycle.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I am a German Immigrant. Arrived in USA 1978. Lived in Cajun Country Lousiana five years. Came to Florida 1983 . Love it here. I am a REALTOR since 1985, worked for Re/Max 12 years and now for Century 21 - enjoying my work. I purchased several investment properties over the years and I am renting to vacationers from all over the States and Europe. Enjoy meeting my guests and striving to provide a wonderful vacation time for them. Thank you all for visiting my Tropical Hideaway. Hope you come back one day in the future.

Why the Owner Chose Manasota Key:
I purchased this little vintage 'cottage' because it is a very special place and it depicts the ' old fashion' Florida Lifestyle. I can accommodate short term vacationers , some of which come from the big cities near by just for a long weekend to relax. I also have the option to allow pets, which is hard to find for my travelers. We have a small marina, bring our boat. We are just a stone through away from the Intra Coastal Waterway. The fishing is plenty and the scenery breathtaking. We also have a large heated swimming pool for our guest. The private Beach access to the Gulf of Mexico is just a few yards away. The island features two Public Beaches, Englewood Beach and Stump Pass Beach Park with hiking trails.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
The Benefits of my little Tropical Hideaway are many. Besides the features mentioned before, there are multiple places to visit and to enjoy. For instance there are boat/ jet ski and Kayak rental places on the island. The unique Restaurants offer delicious food and fun entertainment. You also can walk miles on the beach along the Gulf of Mexico, if you desire peace and quiet instead.
