"We stayed 2 weeks at this cottage, and loved it. It was very clean and quiet. The location was perfect. We were minutes from our favorite beach- Blind Pass Beach. We spent several evenings at the "private beach" watching the sunset. The owners were great to work with, from the initial booking to check out. If you are looking for a place with a lot of room, this isn't for you, but if your looking for a clean and cozy get away, this is your place. We loved it- close to 4 beaches, shopping, and great restaurants. We
will be going back next year!"

"My husband and I just returned from The Beach House at Manasota Key. We had an awesome week. The home is just as advertised with every possible amenity at your fingertips.
We loved hanging out under the awning, enjoying the breeze and watching the water. We saw plenty of dolphins, usually right before a thunderstorm. Don't worry about the weather. Storms last for about 30 minutes max. The master suite is luxuriously furnished and the bed is one of the softest I've ever slept in.
The biggest highlight for me was the totally enclosed outdoor shower. I never took a single shower in the house for the entire week! It was spectacular to shower outside with the privacy of the big mangrove tree and the dunes. We loved every minute of our vacation and would love to return as soon as possible. By the way, both owners go out of their way to make you feel so comfortable. Book your week right now!"

"We love it here! We've now stayed twice in this lovely home which has everything provided for you. We like the dock out back, the huge lot and the quick walk down to the beach. The area is quiet and we feel safe in this neighbourhood. The bed is super comfortable in the master bedroom. I had such great peaceful sleeps. The outdoor shower is awesome!! Our daughter loved the tiny fish in the canal, the friendly birds, squirrels, and the tiny lizards that are everywhere. She didn't see the manatee but watched for it every day. Maybe next visit. Beth is great to converse with by email or phone.
The beach is so beautiful. We hated to go on day trips and miss out on a day walking and shell hunting there. We are hoping to come again. Thank you for sharing your vacation home with us, Beth."

"Our stay at the Cuddlefish Cottage far exceeded expectations. The home still retains the feel of a 1950s Florida Bungalow yet offers modern kitchen and bath amenities. We found the home to be very clean and comfortable throughout our stay. The location of this property is far enough away from the public beaches and commercial properties that it offers the seclusion that we wanted yet is close enough to make it an easy walk or drive to the four public beaches and shopping on Manasota Key. I will be booking our reservation for next season!"
