About the Property

3 bedrooms/1 bath-sleeps 6-8 people also available 1/1 guest cottage sleeps 4

***DEALS!*** WE ARE 5 STARS AND 12 YEARS RENTING OUR PRIVATE HOME!!
A little about our family home, we have a lovely spacious house 3 bedroom 1 bath with a great room and a Billiard room. The guest cottage (1/1 for rent separately on this site) which was the original home on the property sits adjacent to the Beach House. It is our family home and we take great pride in both of them! The House and the Cottage sit independent on a large double lot and are in a excellent location being 150 feet from beach. It is very private and unique because of the location and all of the landscaping. We purchased the house several years ago from a local artist who had it for 32 years and have redone it while keeping it's Old Florida Beach House charm. It is a rare find on the key because of it's quite location in a residential neighborhood as well as its 2 lots give you lots of open area with botanical gardens making you feel like your in you own private beach compound. It is located 1/2 mile from the state park and 3/4 of a mile from the restaurants, bars with live entertainment and shops.
The BEST PART is you will find yourself a "stone's throw" (150 ft) from a wide private beach on the Gulf of Mexico.
Since this is our family vacation home you will find it's like being in a friend’s home not a hotel. The home has also been completely redone is furnished like a home not like a rental. It has been renovated and decorated beyond any other home available for rent!! You will find everything you will need with the exception of a beach towel and your clothes. (ALL ROOMS HAVE CABLE TELEVISION AND WIRELESS INTERNET) Also this is the ONLY rental home that we know of with a BILLIARD ROOM, featuring a beautiful Brunswick drop pocket pool table.
You can see more pictures and see our awards and reviews on several other sites. Google "A must See Manasota Key!" or " Manasota Key Beach House! A Must See!"

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I have been here since 1995 and take pride in my families home to not only keep it in great shape and nice than other properties but I keep improving it every year to make it the BEST. Below is information on me but talk with me personally and lets visit. I like to get to know my guest and they like to come back that's why I have 36% repeat business this year. I am from Colorado my fiancé Caroline is from Rhode Island. I moved to Florida back in 1995. Both of us work in the medical field. I am a USCG Master Captain and a NAUI dive instructor and we both spend a lot of time on our boat at our beach or on the motorcycle. If you stay at our home and want rent a boat, charter a fishing trip, go scuba diving or rent a Harley Davison and ride around I can help you out. Caroline is the tour guide and shopping guide person and can tell you where all the malls and outlet stores are in Sarasota which is 1to the 5 to 20 minutes away.

Why the Owner Chose Manasota Key, FL, USA:
We take great pride in our home. This quaint beach house is within easy walking distance to a Tiki bar on the bay, fine dining and casual restaurants as well as a convenience store and other shopping and boardwalk. We have simply tried to think of everything you would want, or need, to make your vacation a very special experience. We are literally 150 feet from one of the most beautiful beaches that Florida has to offer, as well as being only 600 feet from Lemon Bay. Bring your boat, use one of the nearby ramps, rent a dock or moor on the bay. You will have direct access to the Gulf of Mexico within minutes. This is a renowned fished and boating area. You can surf cast off the beach from anywhere on the island, or charter boats for tarpon, flounder, grouper, mackerel or redfish.It doesn't get any better than this! This home is the perfect getaway from the bustle and noise of everyday life, or to enjoy the glamour and excitement of Florida's Gulf Coast. The choice is yours:Spend a day at the beach, just doing...nothingExplore protected wildlife areas and bird sanctuariesVisit Stump Pass State Park or Dine at one of the local restaurants. This home is only minutes (0.4 miles) from some of the finest dining and nightlife in Florida. The area also has plenty of opportunities for shopping, golf, boating, fishing and much more. We are within easy driving distance of many of Florida's most popular cities and attractions. Venice and Sarasota are a short drive, and provide many cultural attractions and unusual shopping opportunities. We are within a 2-3 hour drive of Tampa/St.Petersburg, Orlando (Disney World), Fort Myers and Naples.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Location! Location! Location! Beach is a stones throw away! 150 feet. No busy roads to cross and you don't have to walk blocks to find a place to access the beach like most other places and we are a family home not a rental! Restaurant's, Bars, State Park and Public Beach all within 1/2 to 3/4 mile. Also we are in a really nice residential street not condos!
