About the owner: We started coming to Manasota Key to visit our grandparents who were avid fishermen. The tradition continued when our parents purchased on the island and we in turn brought our own children. Countless happy hours sailing, picnicking and 'beaching' it were had. Manasota is Old Florida at it's best! A perfect spot to relax and restore - or get out there and enjoy all the Gulf waters have to offer.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
It's my ritual to grab a cup of coffee and watch the sunrise at the end of our street. Dolphins are usually gliding by or catching breakfast. The dramatic show is at the beach at sunset. It's not to be missed! For walkers, you need to take the beach hike to Stump Pass - it's quite a distance but definitely worth the trek. Quick tip - order out at the Lock and Key for instant hor d'oeurves for your Happy Hour on the lanai. Oh yes - don't forget to spend an afternoon strolling the shops and galleries, and grabbing a bite to eat in the Old Englewood area.
