Manasota Key house description
Spectacular direct Gulf-front home only steps from the sandy beach. Enjoy incredible sunsets from every room in the house and balconies on both levels; watch dolphins play, pelicans swoop down for their dinner, or just people-watch as they stroll up and down the beach. This is a great place for a family to unwind.
This home has approximately 2,000 sq ft of living area and beautiful furnishings; a fully equipped kitchen with washer & dryer; parking underneath and a flight of stairs to the main living area; and another flight of stairs takes you to the bedroom level where you will find 3 nicely furnished bedrooms with a king-size bed, queen bed, and bunk-bed. Cable TV, DVR, Wireless internet service, local phone and free long-distance service are provided.
We are located in the middle section of Manasota Key, the most tranquil area of this barrier island. There are shallow waters with no undertow making it great for swimming and of course shelling. Hidden among the sand and shells are fossilized shark's teeth that are thousands of years old - great fun for the kids to find. This area is known for its excellent game fishing with tarpon-fishing tournaments in the summer.
This beautifully decorated home has 3 large bedrooms providing sleeping for at least 6 guests. Each room is provided with fresh linens and towels. The master bath was recently updated; the guest bath has a tub/shower combination. There is a half-bath on the main level. The kitchen was also recently updated with all new appliances and granite countertops. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, glasses, utensils, and cookware - even a blender for your pina colas.
A two-lane road runs the length of this barrier island with a bridge at either end, pristine beaches, 3 public beaches, and a State Park (Stump Pass Park) at the southern tip of the island. The public beach closest to our home is Blind Pass Beach that even has a nature trail for hiking.
There are plenty of activities in the area. Boating or fishing right in front of the house, or in Lemon Bay (a protected watershed), or even deep-sea fishing in the Gulf are possibilities. There are plenty of fishing guides to help you catch your limit. Rent a jet-ski, parasail, or kayak. Or you may enjoy a wildlife tour through the bay and creeks.
There are at least 15 public golf courses within a 15 mile radius of our home. There is local shopping - located on the Key is a convenience store, gift shops, 4 very nice restaurants; in the town of Englewood, just across the bridge, are at least 4 grocery stores, local boutiques, and all kinds of shops. The closest movie-theater is in Venice, about a 15 minute drive.
For a short day-trip to Sarasota you might want to visit Mote Aquarium, Selby Gardens, the mansion Ca d'Zan, or shop at the high-end stores. Tampa, just an hour & 1/2 drive, has professional sports games, plenty of museums, and Busch Gardens, to name just a few. The new Salvador Dali museum is in St Petersburg.
We know you'll come to love this little piece of Paradise!

Beautiful clean home on a private beach!!
Beautiful clean home on a private beach!!
A beautiful home right on the beach with a comfortable layout and wonderful sunsets. The beach is private and we enjoyed walking on the beach. There are close places for shopping and dining. We loved this house and we will be back.

Beautiful home right on the beach. Comfortable layout with kitchen/living room on one floor and bedrooms on top floor. Well provided with towels, dishes, beach toys etc. Only real negative is that neither of the balconies are screened and unfortunately we ended up with lots of bug bites.

Gorgeous House on Manasota Key!
Gorgeous House on Manasota Key!
We stayed at this property for 2 weeks in August and we loved every single minute of it. This house has everything you could need, the rooms are spacious, the kitchen has every amenity you could ever need for a home away from home. I loved the master bedroom with the huge maser bath attached, and the views from every room are spectacular! The large porch available from every room in the house is wonderful for enjoying a sunset or taking in the morning breeze off the gulf. The beach is beautiful and deserted which is what we love! The folks over at Gulf Realty are very responsive and attend promptly to whatever need or question you might have. We swam, snorkeled, collected hundreds of shells and best of all relaxed! We will definitely come back and stay here again!

We loved staying in this home. It was beautifully maintained and had lots of room and a beautiful beach to enjoy each day. The sunset in the evening was beautiful too. Overall if we were to visit this area again, we would most definitely stay at Beach Haven. Thanks!!

We had a terrific stay at this property!! The location for tranquility and solitude cannot be beaten. Loved the beach, the views, and the house had everything we could have hoped for in a rental property.
