Thank you for your interest in our Manasota Key beach home. The shores of the Key are called 'The Gem of the Sun Coast'. So, if you're looking for a relaxing, comfortable and enjoyable stay, rest assured you've found the right place.
The Manasota Key is true Florida. Unspoiled by high-rises and high prices. You will find an abundance of shells and prehistoric shark teeth on shore, the highest density of nesting turtles anywhere on the Gulf Coast of Florida and world class bay, ocean and shore fishing. Everyday there is something new to discover.
About our home: The master suite has a king size bed, huge walk in closet with a full length mirror. Double vanities (quartz) in the master bath with private shower and tub room. Another outdoor shower is accessible from the master suite. If you haven’t experienced a private outdoor shower (not a shower head stuck on the side of the house), you have missed out! Hot and cold water, towel rack and bench. Leave your bath towel and robe in the shower and you are all set when coming off the beach. Has removable shower head to just wash the sand off your feet if preferred. Very convenient and helpful. Exit out the door of the master suite to enjoy the new coffee patio. A great way to start your day. Outfitted with a bistro table and two chaise lounges. Both bathrooms have hair dryers and the master offers a magnifying mirror. Bedroom #2 has a queen size bed, large closet and view of the canal. The bonus rm. (3rd bedroom) has a full size futon, but can also be used as a study as there is a desk as well. All 3 bedrooms have a 42' cable tv. The living room has a 47' cable tv. Both bedrooms have large closets with hangers and laundry bins. Bathroom #2 has a vanity and newly tiled shower. You will find stainless steel appliances in the kitchen. The oversized refrigerator has a double freezer and an exterior ice/water dispenser. Service for 12. Blender, toaster, 2 coffee makers, a 12 cup drip and a Keurig (you choose your favorite), mixer. The full size stove has four burners and a double oven. The smallest of the ovens heats and cools quickly. Perfect for Florida. The dishwasher, full size and quiet. The free use of the in-home clothes washer and dryer assure that time and money is not wasted at a laundromat. An outdoor clothesline is perfect for drying your beach towels. The home has dependable, high speed wifi and all four t.v.'s have extensive cable.
Our double lot sits on a quiet, private canal with a boat dock and access to both the inter-coastal waterway and the Gulf. There has been a mating pair of Manatees and their baby in the canal as well as a White Egrets nest, for years. There are always fish to watch. We have seen snook, redfish and sheepshead from the dock. Of course the jumping mullet are always fun to watch. Look for the green night heron fishing. Many nearby vendors will deliver and pick up paddle boards or kayaks. Or rent a jet ski or boat. Put in the kayaks and paddle boards on our property and it is a VERY short paddle to the beautiful Lemon Bay. Explore the mangrove islands in the bay. Many a photographer has enjoyed our home and the rich wildlife of the canal and property.
Relax on our new double decker, screened in patios. Both patios have ceiling fans. The perfect compliment to our existing outdoor front deck and coffee patio in the rear of the house. These amenities make this home a truly year round home. Two sunny decks for the “winter” time and screened, fan cooled Summer decks. All great, comfortable outdoor spaces.
Beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, beach cart, several sizes of coolers and a few floaty devices are provided.
The large property provides privacy and ample room for recreation. It also provides plenty of room should you have a boat trailer to park.
In addition to the beach that is only steps away, Stump Beach Pass State Park, the number one attraction in our area, is just a short walk away and offers pristine beaches, ample wildlife and hiking trails. There are four public beaches on Manasota Key, each unique and worth visiting, but the beach at the end of our street is my favorite. Very few streets on the Key afford access as we have at the end of the street. No private property to cross nor a long walk to an access point.
NOTE: Interior space above the garage is not available for rent and is not included in the rental price or description. The space is not and will not be occupied during your stay. You will have entire property to yourselves. The upper and lower decks are included in the price and are available for your use.
