About the Property

Spotless accommodations, fun for every one and the best views on the Island!

Location,location,location! The Highview is situated on the southern tip of the Island, you could almost throw a coconut from Gulf to the Bay here. JUST STEPS TO THE BEACH and Stump Pass. This rental stands high above the rest in every way. When views, quality and cleanliness are important ,The Highview delivers all and more!

This top floor suite sleeps six and rents separately from the bottom floor suite.

Take a ride on our beach cruiser bikes, launch the kayaks or try the stand up paddle boards for the first time. You wont want for anything here...it's all here, it's all FREE, and included with your rental!

Kick back in the comfortable orange lifeguard chairs and take in the awesome views overlooking The Gulf of Mexico and Lemon Bay. Nothing but blue sky's and blue water everywhere. The Highview gets two thumbs up from the locals and is a great spot for star gazing in the evening.


While inside, walk freely around the open floor plan. There's wifi, two bedrooms with high quality linens, and three flat screen TVs. Enjoy cooking your favorite meal in the fully equipped kitchen. The comfortable open Living room has a large flat screen HDTV, and beautiful Gulf Views.

Love the outdoors?...then you'll feel right at home here. Cook out on one of our Weber grills. The picnic area and tables are nestled in sea shells. Found some great stuff at the beach???...Wash off your bounty in the custom built shell cleaning station.

Enjoy the enclosed open top outdoor shower with hot and cold running water and blue sky views. Walk around the property sipping a cool drink and be swept away by the lush tropical landscaping that surrounds the Highview.

One of the best things about this home is it's location. It's right next door to Stump Pass State Park. There are 265 acres of sandy walking trails and pristine beaches. You can ALWAYS find a section of beach all to yourself. The wildlife here is amazing. You will see pelicans diving for fish, Osprey in tree tops, dolphins and manatee swimming the shoreline. Sea turtles lay eggs here every year and don't forget to look for prehistoric sharks teeth (not hard to find) and go shelling at the point.

If you've been here before you know it's allure, if it's your first time, get ready for a soul refreshing journey!

Note* The Highview is a duplex that can sleep up to 12 guests in total. Each floor is a two bedroom one bath, sleeps six, and rents separately. Prices shown are for one floor only.

The Highview Manasota Key

Why Manasota Key, FL, USA:
After exploring Florida's Gulf coast for the perfect slice of paradise we kept coming back to the little unknown island called Manasota Key. The perfect mix of peace and quite, nature, and some fun Key West style restaurants just up the road. Anything else you need or want is just off island . Our home sits on the southern most tip of the Island and is next to Stump Pass State Park. This home has awesome panoramic water views of both Lemon bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Come smell the fresh salt air!
