This is the one bedroom cottage of a 2-cottage duplex right on Manasota Key - famous for it's white sand and un-crowded beaches.
The location couldn't be better. Pop your beach chairs and umbrella on the provided cart and stroll about 200 yards down lovely Beachcomber Lane to the Gulf beach for swimming, shell and shark-teeth collecting, lazing in the sun....and about the same distance the other way, down Mockingbird St. to the inter-coastal where you can kayak, fish, or watch the activity on the bay.
It is also within walking distance to Stump Pass Park, one of the treasures of Manasota Key.
There are several restaurants and bars within walking distance plus a small variety store, kayak, boat and scooter rental places and beach clothing stores.
The two units are totally private with the very private backyards separated by gorgeous landscaping and each has outdoor dining table & chairs, grill and private hot-tub!
The cottage has a complete kitchen, including fridge, stove, microwave and is equipped with coffee maker, toaster, kettle and full set of dishes, glassware and pots and pans. Linens and beach towels are provided. The cottage is air conditioned and also has fans in each room. Wifi and cable tv are included.
There is a queen size bed in the bedroom, plus a 'pull-out' couch in the living room and a dining table with 4 chairs, plus 2 'bar' chairs at the counter/island. The flooring and kitchen have been renovated in the past 2 years, and everything is freshly painted. All the furniture is new (April/14) and there is 'portable washer/dryer' combination for your convenience.
To see the adjoining cottage, go to vrbo.com, listing # 591806. If you have a large group, I also have a beautiful three bedroom pool home less than 3 miles away, which sleeps 8 - see vrbo.com listing # 473090.
The Castaway units can be rented separately or rent both at a discounted rate.
