About the property

House, 3 bedrooms , 2 bathrooms, sleeps 10

Live the dream of this coastal décor vacation home with an UNBEATABLE VIEW from every room!

Spend your days relaxing on the lanai, swimming in the heated pool, biking and walking in a beautiful neighborhood or fishing and boating from your own large, private dock. Watch dolphins, rays, fish and the resident manatee play in the 250 foot wide canal from the comfort of your lawn chair.

The perfect day doesn’t end there--- enjoy the evening sunset while cooking a steak on the gas grill and sipping your favorite beverage. Then, take an after dinner swim under the moonlight in our heated pool.

Once inside, you’ll find very spacious, light-filled rooms with panoramic views of the water from almost every room. You'll love the entire wall of sliding doors leading to the screened lanai and the sliders from the master bedroom to the pool.

The layout is perfect for one couple, families or friends traveling together. The master suite is on one side of the home, one guest room is on the opposite side of the house and the third bedroom is on the other side of the home with the living room, dining room and kitchen in between. Privacy for all!

The master bedroom suite is HUGE, almost 300 square feet and features a king size bed, bathroom, 2 closets, (one a walk in) and a 110 square foot private sitting area. There are 2 guest rooms which can be set up with a king bed in each or 2 twins in each room. Use the 2 queen pull out sofas and you can comfortably sleep 10.

The home is fully furnished with all the amenities you need for a relaxing vacation. Linens, towels, beach towels, laundry soap, bath soap, dish detergent, fishing poles, cooler, gas grill,bikes, kayaks etc, etc. This is truly a home away from home.

It’s a quick boat or car ride to Sanibel or Captiva and the Gulf of Mexico with lots of fun park and restaurant stops in between.

Don’t miss out on staying in the vacation home with the spectacular view!

Great Back to School Stay (05-09 AUG 2018)

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at "Manatees at the Dock" and the house did not disappoint. It was perfect for our needs as we had our two teenagers and our niece and nephew with us. You could not get the kids out of the pool and they loved the TV outside. Unfortunately, we were unable to kayak this year due to the algae this year but that has nothing to due with the owners. This is a perfect location if you are looking to go to any of the nearby beaches. We chose to go to Bowman's Beach, Bonita Spring Beach, and Fort Myers beach. Thank you for the wonderful memories!

Home away from home with a gorgeous view!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect vacation. The home was truly “a home”. So clean and cozy on the inside and the view outside is breathtaking. All you need to stay in this home are your clothes! Shopping and restaurants are very accessible. Also, the beaches are a 20 minute drive. There are bicycles and kayaks available right there, no need to go anywhere. JUST RELAX!!!! (And enjoy the pool!!) We would definitely stay here again!!

Tennessee Tourists!

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved the house and ALL the items that were provided. We had everything we could possibly need and more! The house was super clean. Kudos to the cleaning staff. We didn't get to use the canal for fishing or canoeing as much as we would have liked because of the green algae, but it was something unexpected that couldn't be prevented. Maybe next time it'll be gone and the canals will be more pleasant. Because of the algae, we missed out on seeing any manatees or marine life. That was disappointing, but we still had a great time. We can't say enough about the house and the management. Super easy to talk to and they reply immediately! We're very thankful for people who are so blessed and choose to share their homes for vacationers.

Annual road trip.

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful, after using grip for 9 years for trips from the mountains to various beaches can say it was the most stocked over all. All you need for your stay is your clothes and food. Sue was very friendly and accommodating.
