We fell in love with this property. We too first vacationed here in this very house, we loved it so much that we bought it. There is something for everyone here, there is most any kind of warm weather activities that you would like to do within minutes of the house.

Why Mike and Kathy Lowry chose Manasota Key

The beach views are amazing, there are two lanais, large enough to accommodate all of your meals, and evening sunsets. There are activities close, you can stay as busy or relaxed as you want.

What makes this house unique

The panoramic views are just amazing in this house. The layout of this house is such, where you can see the Gulf of Mexico from most every spot in the house. Also, the house is updated, with stainless appliances in the kitchen, and Brazilian cherry wood floors throughout the house.

Paradise on the Gulf!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this beautiful house was truly like being in a Paradise. Literally only steps (maybe 5) from the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Million dollar views and sounds of the Gulf from every room. Between us, we found a total of over 600 fossilized shark teeth and a few pieces of beach glass on the beach right in front of our place. Spotlessly cleanđź‘Ť

Impressive view

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 7 day stay. All of the activities we had planned went by the wayside when we saw the beautiful view from the back deck. The pictures do not lie. It's just as beautiful in person. The house was clean and neatly decorated. The beach was uncrowded for most of the week. Plenty of room to relax.

House is very nice, beautifully decorated, the best views of the ocean and sunset.

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 stayed during the last week in June. Upon arrival, the owner met us at the house, he was very nice and easy to talk to. The house was so inviting that it felt like home to us. The beds were comfortable, the rooms were spacious, the kitchen had plenty of cookware and utensils (the only thing I found missing was a blender, which is not really necessary).They provide so many extras (bath towels, beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, floats, sand toys, boogie boards). We had packed most of those things, but next time we will save the space in our car and travel more comfortably.

The water is beautiful, everyone (ages 10, 14, 20, and even us parents) had a great time snorkeling.

Our favorite restaurant was "Farlow's", I would recommend trying it out. We found that a lot of shops close early, so if you like to shop, plan to do that before 5pm.

The beach was not crowded at all, and no matter where we went the people were very friendly. I could not have asked for a better place to stay. Wish it was a 2 week rental instead of one, I was not ready to leave.

Great Beach House with Great Owners

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week during g spring break 2016. The house has everything you need for a week. They provide beach towels and laundry detergent for using the provided washing machine and dryer. WiFi works good as well. The beach location really couldn't be better. Great swimming and no rocks or seaweed to worry about. Ocean is up to 4 feet deep till about 40 feet out, then gets deeper. Our 2 kids ages 10 and 13 loved body surfing on the windy days. The location is on a dead end road with Stump Pass Beach and park at the end about 3/4 mile down the road. There are quite a few resturants within 1/4 mile. We would defiantly stay here again, as the owners were really nice, and easy to communicate with.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a great week. We wish we could have stayed longer. The house is very nice, well updated throughout with granite and hardwood floors. Furniture is also very nice, comfortable beds, and all in very good, clean condition. House has underneath garage with remotes, makes you feel like it is your home...and then there is the view. Right on the beach, every room has a wide view onto the Gulf. Sun sets over the water with beautiful colors. Beach is clean with nice sand and just a joy to be able to walk to whenever you feel like it.

We are a family of 6 with a toddler up to tween, and all had a great time. Plenty of room with fold out couch for all to sleep. We rented a boat locally (only a 5 minute drive). Also close to grocery store, restaurants and other activities. We only hope we can stay here again. Owners were very good at communications and easy to work with. Only comment (not anywhere near a complaint, but just for information for others with little children), there is no DVD player, so bring your own. Otherwise, your own paradise for as long as you can get away.

Magnificent vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent 7 wonderful days and nights in this absolute beautiful house. It has everything you need. The most beautiful thing is the view. All rooms are furnished very nice and with care and all have an ocean view. To watch the dolphins trough the day passing by was very amazing, too. We loved everything about the house and would be glad to stay again there soon. We can recommend this house to everyone who is looking for a quiet, peaceful and relaxing holiday. The owners were very friendly, flexible and helpful.

This house is GULF FRONT and it is in an active part of Manasota Key. There are places to eat, drink, and shop for souvenir, all within walking distance. There is also a park close with other activities available. Boat, jet skis, kayaks rentals, etc. are also very close. You are 10 minutes or less to the grocery store. Each guest gets freshly laundered sheets, blankets and comforter on their bed...always.
