About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4)
Enter a long (400’) private driveway through beautiful native Florida vegetation.
You will reach our home, built in 1946. It was the third home built on Manasota Key.
Welcome to our very private beach getaway.
Beautiful Manasota Key is a quaint barrier island. Our home is located about halfway down the length of the key. It is not far from 4 major airports: Tampa (TPA), Sarasota (SRQ), and St. Petersburg-Clearwater (PIE) to the north and Ft. Myers (RSW) to the south.
Our home is cozy and pleasantly rustic. It is perfect for a couple or a family. There are 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. The kitchen is large and contains just about every tool or appliance you could want. For outdoor cooking, there is also a gas grill. Adjacent to the kitchen is the living room, which overlooks the Gulf of Mexico through a double set of sliding glass doors. Outside the glass doors is a large deck.
More property description : Just a few steps from the deck is beautiful Manasota Key Beach. The private beach extends 1-1/2 miles south and 1/2 mile north…which means no crowds. The total beach extends about 2 miles to the south, ending at Stump Pass, and about 7 miles to the north. You will find the warm and usually clear blue waters of the Gulf a perfect place for your vacation! For those who prefer smooth, glassy waters, you should walk the beach in the early morning. Shark teeth and shells are abundant!

Year Purchased: 1946
About the owner: Hy there, I am Jim Denison. I live up the road a bit from our beach house. I spent most of my live being a building contractor, so I know how to take care of things, which is a very good skill to have owning a 70 year old beach house in Florida. The house is in very good condition...for a home buillt in 1946!! It has everything you need to spend a week or a few months.
Why the Owner Chose Manasota Key, FL, USA:
This property was bought by my grandfather in 1945, In 1946 he built the beach house and 2 garages and a guest house. I have spent scores of vacations in this house from the late 50's to the mid 70's. My grandparents lived in this house from 1946 until about '68. Then my parents moved from their home in Rocky River, Ohio to this house in '72 and stayed until they passed away in '05 and '08. We have been renting the house for about 7 years now.
