Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

Great location, and the house was very clean and well looked after. The family all loved the beach, the warm water, the patio, and the sunsets and sunrises. As an added bonus, the fireworks for July 4th were spectacular and we watched from the dock with an amazing unobstructed view!

Our only wish is we could have stayed longer!

Didn't want to leave!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place! Had everything we needed, 2 grandson's kept busy playing in the water, fishing, chasing crabs. Beautiful sunsets! We got lucky and saw a female turtle laying eggs and actually had 3 hatches during the week we were there. Once in a lifetime experience! We will never forget it! Chartered a fishing trip and my 9 year old grandson caught a 40" snook. This area is not a tourist trap, very relaxing but still all the amenities you need. I would highly recommend it!

Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Manasota Key and this property. It felt like we were home again ! The house, furnishings, outdoor areas, and sunsets were fabulous and well maintained. With access to the bay in front of the house and the Gulf of Mexico behind us, we had the best of both worlds. The home was very clean and had plenty of linens. The kitchen was well stocked with additional small appliances. The grill cooked our fish very well and the fire pit was so cozy ! It was awesome being able keep the boat across the street in the private slip with a lift and fish from the dock.

It's difficult to find a FL place that checks all the boxes...just steps from the beach , bay access, dock included, ample trailer parking, accepts pets upon approval, and has awesome views. Mr. Morris took very good care of us !

Fun family time for everyone!

  • 4 of 5

From the moment we walked through the door, we were mesmerized by the aqua ocean, which is just steps from the back door and can be seen from everywhere in the house. The home was excellent for me, my husband, my disabled father, and our two teenage sons.

THE RIVER: This property is so unique because it's "ocean to river", which really appealed to my family because my two teenage sons love to fish. They used the kayak on property, and we also brought our paddle boards, and we were on that river every day.

THE OCEAN: it was a beautiful aqua blue every day, and to be able to walk out the back door just a few steps and enjoy the ocean, the view, the breeze, was so relaxing. Mr. Morris kindly let us bring our dog, and he had the week of his life, romping around on Manasota Key beach! And searching for prehistoric sharks teeth right on the beach was an added bonus of fun!

THE HOUSE: The great room and kitchen are so spacious. Yes, the house is a little dated, but everything was clean and comfortable, and the house has everything you could think of, from Tupperware to laundry detergent, and every outdoor toy you'd need, like chairs, kayak, boogie boards, etc. My dad is disabled and he got around great.

It was a great week and just the relaxing family time we needed.

Heaven on Earth to my Family and me !

  • 5 of 5

"Wow" is all i can say. If you want to forget about the outside world for a while. Come here... We were there from 1 1/2 hour away from home in Naples,FL and it felt like a different world. I had my boat on the bay side, When to Stump pass on in and it was really nice. Drove to Boca Grande one day to see a little of old Florida. But most of all watched someone catch a 100-150 lb Tarpon from the kitchen table in the clear waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Man i'm i ready to make this a yearly trip. Anyone that has been there can relate to what my family and i enjoyed there. Gofer turtles just hang around in the grass in the back yard, Loggerhead turtles lay their eggs in the beach feet from the back yard. Pretty much my favorite place to go on vacation. fishing is great on the beach also, Snook,Flounder,Whiting are caught within feet from the beach. Love it and hope (God willing) to go back year after year. THANK YOU for the peaceful vacation. 5 star for me.
