Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are honest, credible educators and parents who want to share the beauty of our home and the community.

Why the Owner Chose Manasota Key:
We have been coming to Florida for 25 years and kept finding ourselves at Manasota Key, with the most beautiful beaches and the most friendly, fun-loving people! When we found this home for sale, we knew we had to have it. We are still working and cannot be there year-round, so we want to share it with others.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The front porch has prehistoric sharks teeth -- to welcome you to the beach house! The tropical flora and fauna will delight your sense of sight and smell!
