Seashell Shanty Unit Beach Shack of Manasota Key

- Oct 17, 2018
Rod and I are northern transplants from Ohio and Pennsylvania (respectively) that moved to Florida back in 1990. We have been married for going on 25 years and have two wonderful sons- Conor and Quinn who have kept us busy for the majority of these years with school activities, Club soccer and Boy Scouts. As we move into the empty nest stage of our lives in a few years we are working on our "Nest". We look forward to sharing this "Nest" with you as well.
Heather purchased this House in 2017
Why Heather chose Englewood
The love of the beach has brought us together with you. We are excited to be able to share this Gulf Oasis with our friends, family and guests. We want to expand our circle by inviting visitors from all over the US, Canada and World to experience the quiet, serene location we have found at the Beach Shack of Manasota Key. It has given us great peace and relaxation and we have now been fortunate enough to own a piece of this paradise to share with all of you. And an FYI this property has an identical side -Turtle Cay that offers the same amenities. We thought it perfect to be able to bring another family/friends and still be able to have your own space. Ask us about availability for both sides!!
What makes this House unique
Spending time with friends on Manasota Key led us to fall in love with the island. The quaint community of visitors gives you a sense of belonging. When you drive over the small draw bridge that takes you on to the island your eyes sneak a peak to the water to see if the dolphins are in view - you can't help but let out a breath of calmness as you have entered your relaxing destination. Many travelers come from the North during the winter months to beat the cold weather and stay for months on end- year after year. Others that live in Florida or the warmer areas come to get away from our everyday life even if just a short drive. While at the Beach Shack you will feel at home whether it is for a weekend -a week - or a month. The warm "Good Mornings" from those on the beach looking for Shark's Teeth (which are abundant if you look) or those you pass while walking/biking just makes you feel like you have found your Home Away from Home. The Beach Shack of Manasota Key will become a favorite and repeat destination for you- Promise!!

I can’t give enough stars for this vacation ! Heather was so friendly and caring and most of all very generous the houses have everthing you need plus added extras very clean and just perfect ! Thanks again Heather my turn to pay it forward xoxo
Wow! Great location, adorable bunalow perfectly equipped with everything and more than we expected!
My kids and I stayed at shell shanty over spring break. We were thrilled and we showed up to find an adorable, beautifully decorated Bungalo in a fabulous location! Heather was so wonderful in getting us informed of what to expect when we got there and was helpful through the whole process! We loved the Bungalo and it was perfectly stocked with everything we needed and more. It was wonderful that there were four bikes, three kayaks, two paddle boards and she even had a football, frisbee, wet water ball and other items for us to enjoy. Nothing was forgotten and we were thrilled to have beach chairs, umbrellas, beach mats and we especially loved the back screened in lanai. The backyard is large and peaceful and has a great grill out there too! The birds Out In the backyard so enjoyable to listen to and one evening we even enjoyed watching a possum cruise around the backyard!
I highly recommend this wonderful Bungalow And the entire Mannasota key area is wonderful for collecting shells, dining and just cruising around on bikes!
Thank you for the wonderful review! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and shared your experience! We hope you come to visit again soon Cyndi !!
Perfect beach getaway for a couple!
Heather went above and beyond to ensure that our every need was met!
The Beach Shack was the perfect place for our week-long stay. Located on a quite street, within walking distance to beautiful Englewood Beach, shops, tiki bars and restaurants, the Beach Shack has everything that we needed for a wonderful stay including: a king-sized comfy bed, upgraded linens, lots of pillows, air conditioning, WiFi, a private back yard with a grill, washer & dryer, kayaks, a Keurig, an iron, a well appointed kitchen and, great beach equipment including a cooler bag!
We loved waking up to the singing birds, many of which were in the mature trees in the back yard, and starting our day on the screened-in porch. Heaven!
No attention to detail was missed in the Beach Shack. It is clear that Heather puts her heart in to this beach rental and deeply cares that her guests have a wonderful stay❤️
Nicely updated with anything you could possibly need! 4 minute walk to beach
Short walk to Stump Pass state park and restaurants. Overall great place
A Little Home
We had a lovely stay in this one bedroom freshly renovated unit in a duplex very close to the beach (about 5 minutes). No hesitation at all to encourage others to take advantage of this wee well furnished home. The owners Heather & husband were quick to respond and super easy to deal with !
Loved having the MacNeills visit our cottage duplex over the holidays! Super sweet couple! Hope to see you again soon!
-Heather and Rod
On the island there are quaint restaurants-nightly music entertainment, dancing, sand areas for kids to enjoy while eating, karaoke for the more adventurous and just plain old good memories to make. Bike/walking path along two lane road -most of which spans the 7 miles of the island. Cross over the Tom Adams bridge and enjoy heading to the mainland if you need to venture out.
