Manasota Key house description

Location,location,location! The Highview is situated on the southern tip of the Island, you could almost throw a coconut from Gulf to the Bay here. JUST STEPS TO THE BEACH and Stumps Pass. This rental stands high above the rest in every way. When views, quality and cleanliness are important ,The Highview delivers all and more!

Take a ride on our beach cruiser bikes, launch the kayaks or try the stand up paddle boards for the first time. You wont want for anything here...it's all here, it's all FREE, and included with your rental!

Kick back in the comfortable orange lifeguard chairs and take in the awesome views overlooking The Gulf of Mexico and Lemon Bay. Nothing but blue sky's and blue water everywhere. The Highview gets two thumbs up from the locals and is a great spot for star gazing in the evening.


While inside, walk freely around the open floor plan. There's high speed wireless internet with boost, two bedrooms with high quality linens, and three flat screen TVs. Enjoy cooking your favorite meal in the fully equipped kitchen. The comfortable open Living room has a large flat screen HDTV, and beautiful Gulf Views.

Love the outdoors?...then you'll feel right at home here. Cook out on one of our Weber grills. The picnic area and tables are nestled in sea shells. Found some great stuff at the beach???...Wash off your bounty in the custom built shell cleaning station.

Enjoy the enclosed open top outdoor shower with hot and cold running water and blue sky views. Walk around the property sipping a cool drink and be swept away by the lush tropical landscaping that surrounds the Highview.

One of the best things about this home is it's location. It's right next door to Stump Pass State Park. There are 265 acres of sandy walking trails and pristine beaches. You can ALWAYS find a section of beach all to yourself. The wildlife here is amazing. You will see pelicans diving for fish, Osprey in tree tops, dolphins and manatee swimming the shoreline. Sea turtles lay eggs here every year and don't forget to look for prehistoric sharks teeth (not hard to find) and go shelling at the point.

If you've been here before you know it's allure, if it's your first time, get ready for a soul refreshing journey!

Bring your friends and family, the bottom floor may be available. Call or email for Pictures and pricing.

                  Owner info

                  Why the Owner Chose Manasota Key:
                  After searching the Florida Gulf Coast we fell in love with This unknown, unheard of Island. Manasota Key is about 300 yards wide by four miles long and has to be Florida's Best kept secret! Imagine an Island with just four great beaches and a few local hot spots. Anything else you need or want is just off Island. If you love nature and natural beauty like we do, you will love this slice of Paridise. Our home sits on the southern most tip of the Island and is next to Stump Pass State Park. This home has panoramic water views of both Lemon bay and the Gulf of Mexico.
