About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
Our beach house is on a secluded beach that makes up the barrier island of Manasota Key. Our beach is a very quiet beach. The entire island is a conservation area. You can often sit for hours and not see even another person. The sand is covered with gorgeous shells and numerous sharks’ teeth. About 20 feet off shore is one of the few Florida West Coast Reefs in just a few feet of water; perfect for snorkeling and fishing. There are abundant tropical and game fish. Our beach is know to be one of the best shore fishing spots in entire county. Yet you are just a 10 minute drive back to the main land for restaurants and stores.
Known as the 'Gem of the Sun Coast', Manasota Key is home to majestic dolphins, gentle manatees, million year old shark teeth, and thousands upon thousands of gorgeous shells...and of course, FISHING! catch your fair share of grouper, snook, redfish, tarpon, snapper, and list goes on and on! If you're looking for privacy and seclusion with the ability to be at restaurants and shopping within minutes then you have found your place in the world! Don't miss out on your chance to vacation in PARADISE, feast on SEAFOOD, and RELAX in the crystal clear waters of Manasota Key!
We have two screened porches; one right on the beach, perfect for watching enchanting sunsets while dolphins play in the waves. The other screened porch is attached to our house, about 100 feet back from the beach, for barbecue and relaxing. Between the sand and our beach house is our private backyard filled with hundreds of towering palm trees. The house has new appliances including a Sub-Zero refrigerator, three TVs, and cable TV with HBO, ShowTime and extra sports channels as well as dependable high speed cable internet, with Wi-Fi. Each bedroom and the living room have speakers to plug your smart phone in to for listening to all your favorite music. Golf, tennis, restaurants, and shopping are only minutes away on the mainland.
Board games, puzzles and games provided for the kids to play.
