Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We have always dreamed of having a wonderful home near the beach, and this is it! I grew up in Canada, and in Australia, so I have experienced living by the beach, but certainly miss it while living in Canada.

Why the Owner Chose Manasota Beach:
We have been travelling to this area since 2002, and have fallen in love with this place. It is quiet, but close to great restaurants and night life in Venice. You can still travel to Disney area for day trips. But this Old Florida charm, provides comfort to your soul.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Old Florida Charm. Comfortable home. Spacious and modern. And I have palm trees!
