About the property

3 bedroom/ 3 bathroom home on the beach (sleeps 6)

Do you lik the sound of the ocean? Then you will like this. Relax in this newly renovated and tastefully furnished 1,600 square foot home with 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths. It's private and spacious on each side of this duplex.

Are your desired dates already booked? Then check out side A (VRBO #434280). Or rent both sides for a family reunion (if available).

Also check out our new VRBO listing on Siesta Key #894494. Just 40 minutes north of Manasota Key.

Swim, fish, work on your tan, or search for shark's teeth on the beach in your backyard. Enjoy the panoramic views of the Gulf and watch the sunset from your deck, which extends across the back of the house separated by a privacy wall. The wall can be opened to accommodate larger gatherings.

Prefer some private time? Enjoy that same view from the private balcony outside the master bedroom. The reflection of the moon light on the water at night is breathtaking.

Cook at home in the fully equipped kitchen or go out to one of the many restaurants in the neighborhood.

All the necessary linens and accessories are available to make your stay comfortable, as well as a pack and play for the baby.

Stay connected with FREE wireless Internet and local /long distance phone service in the US.

1,600 square feet makes the home spacious and inviting. Stretch out on the new sectional while watching the large flat screen HD TV. Walk out onto the deck to check on the kids or enjoy the waves washing across the sand.

Upstairs there are 3 plush mattresses all around! The Master has an ensuite bathroom, a flat screen TV/DVD player, and a private balcony.

For your added convenience, a full sized washer and dryer is ready to clean as many towels as you can use.

Recent updates include hurricane windows and sound proofing for additional security and privacy.

This quiet piece of paradise has a 2 lane road running through it with 3 public beaches, a state park (Stump Pass Park), restaurants, pubs and a mini market.

Tired of relaxing? There are plenty of activities in the area,including boating, deep sea fishing, jet skiing, parasailing, or kayaking. Bike lanes run along side the main road and hiking trails are nearby as well as many public golf courses.

Major League baseball, NHL hockey, or pro football is an hour away in Tampa with the Rays, Bolts, or Bucs. Minor league baseball is 15 minutes down route 776 (when in season) in Port Charlotte. Disney World and Busch Gardens are 2 hours to the north. The Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg and the Ringling Museum in Sarasota are worthwhile, too. The Everglades National Park is 2 hours to the south, if you want to take an airboat ride and see some gators.

Please see side A, VRBO 434280, too. Rent one side or both for a larger gathering.

In lieu of a security deposit, the management company will take a credit card authorization of $500.

About Marie and Jay Holland

Jay and I have been visiting the area for years, thanks to an aunt who discovered the beautiful southwest coast of Florida years ago. Now we have our own little piece of paradise!

Marie and Jay Holland purchased this house in 2012

Why Marie and Jay Holland chose Florida South West

Manasota Key has all of the beauty of the Florida beaches without the crowds. It's one of the last truly undiscovered coastal areas. This property provides privacy ( not a condo) and direct access to the beach. In addition, the house is three stories high, built on 20 foot pylons and offers spectacular views. We hope you will love it as much as we do!

What makes this house unique

Private beach! Perfect for large groups for family reunions! Check out side A at

VRBO # 434280.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great Week on Manasota Key!

  • 4 of 5

The house was perfect for our family, aside from the amount of stairs that were difficult for our older guests. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets and the easy access to the beach.

Great beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in "side B" the last week in October, and everything about the stay was fantastic. The house was immaculate and very well stocked with all the necessities for cooking and lounging around on the beach. The best part is being able to literally walk out the door into the sand. We had 3 adults and one dog, but the house is spacious enough for a much larger group. We'll be back!

Fabulous beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have for more than 10 years have been going to Manasota Key for summer vacation . We decided to try a different place this time and we' were so delighted with "The Holland 's" home away from home.Everything was immaculate and very well equipped with all the essentials.It was very spacious for my family and all the comforts of home.It was great to have our own area of the beach and the sunsets to watch from especially the upper deck were breathtaking.I would recommend this property for anyone looking to stay in this area and we plan to return here again next summer.Thank you so much for letting us stay in your home away from home!!
