About the Property

2 bed 1 bath with awesome panoramic Gulf of Mexico views from the roof top deck

There's only one HIGHVIEW on the Island and WE HAVE IT! See high above it all and enjoy. The Islands only rental with panoramic water views every where you look. The best sunsets, sunrises, full moons, weather patterns and rainbows are all right here on top of the Highview! One more bonus, there's also awesome star gazing in the evenings from our top deck.

Location,location,location! What a location The Highview has. Situated on the southern tip of the Island, you could almost throw a coconut from Gulf to the Bay here and just a 60 second walk to our deeded beach path. This rental stands high above the rest in every way. When views, quality and cleanliness are important , The Highview delivers all and more!

Enjoy our beach cruisers bikes, Stand Up Paddle Boards and kayaks, there FREE to use and included with your rental. Kick back in the orange lifeguard chairs and take in the awesome views. Our signature roof top deck is like the Islands only light house. Imagine yourself sitting high above it all with a cool drink in your hand. You are now overlooking the entire south end of Manasota Key. Nothing but blue water and blue sky everywhere. The Highview gets two thumbs up from the locals and is a great spot for any occasion.

Walk freely around the open floor plan and decks. There is high speed wireless internet, 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 peekaboo Gulf Views. If outdoors is your thing you'll feel right at home here. Two Weber grills and picnic tables nestled in shells. Wash your new found shells in the shell cleaning station, enjoy the enclosed outdoor shower with blue sky views or just sip a cool drink and be swept away by the lush tropical landscaping and soft night lighting 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 12 guests in total. Each floor is a two bedrooms/one bath, sleeps six, and rent separately. Prices shown are for one suite only.

Why the Owner Chose 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!
