Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: Hi, I am a single mother of two girls. both of my girls lived on the beach and loved it so much when they grew up and moved away I decided to share my small part of paradise with the world . It's the most natural and clean beach in florida . I say natural cause you never know when you may be taking a walk on the beach at night and just about walk into a turtle laying her eggs . yes its on the web site ck it out on my other web site SEE THE TURTLES RIGHT ON THE BEACH !! call me or email me and I will send you the pictures of the turtles on the beach . I make my home yours. My guests become like family . In 23 years of renting I can say I have never had anyone not happy with what they got for the money. My places are cleaned by me the owner. And if you need something I am here to get it . I am never more then a phone call away.Ok, I hope to see you on the Beach gotta go it's Sunset !!!

Why the Owner Chose Manasota Key, FL, USA:
MANASOTA BEACH & ENGLEWOOD BEACH is old FLORIDA. I know I am safe to walk the beach at anytime day or night . You can still have a firer pit on the beach except in turtle season MAY THROUGH OCT IS TURTLE SEASON COME SEE TURTLES ON THE BEACH LAY THEIR EGGS AND IN APPROX 67 DAYS THEY WILL HATCH . I can still take a sleeping bag down and sleep under the stars and no one is going to come run me off. The fishing is great ! I can walk to a charter fishing boats and be out fishing by 6-7 in the am . FREE YOGA ON THE BEACH I can feel completely safe at night with my doors unlocked. So to me its my part of paradise . SLEEPS 8 BOOK NOW FOR THAT SUMMER FAMILY REUNION. BOOK 2 OR 8 WE PRICE BY THE SIZE OF YOUR PARTY AND THE TIME OF YEAR .

The Unique Benefits at this House:
One Big HOUSE ! This is a 2 story house It has a private courtyard with an electric sun shade.A nice place to have friends come and sit outside and listen to some jazz on the OUT SIDE sound system . .
