About Amy

Our fondest memories from childhood are of spending time with devoted grandparents & cousins on sun-filled, fun-filled Florida beach vacations. Ironically, my husband & I first met each other on a Florida vacation after college to visit relatives. Needless to say Florida vacations are close to my heart and I fortunately was able to turn them into a small business I'm absolutely passionate about. My husband spent his boyhood vacation visiting Manasota Key's stunning beaches. His fun beach memories prompted our years-long search for the perfect place to call our own on beloved Manasota Key.

Why Amy chose Florida South West

Location, location, LOCATION! Villa Margarita delights guests with all new furnishings throughout done by our very talented interior designer & numerous FREE amenities- Just steps to our Gorgeous Gulf of Mexico Beach!! We are extremely lucky to have one of the best locations on Manasota Key! My husband and I searched forever for the perfect spot on the keys & we found it. It was worth the wait. Just steps to both our gorgeous beach which never gets crowded & one of the best places of earth to find the pre-historic sharks teeth the area is famous for! (our kids have collected tons of sharks teeth - which make the ultimate free souvenirs!!)

1 minute walk the opposite way to picturesque Lemon Bay on either end of our tiny, pretty island street. We are also beyond fortunate to be in the same neighborhood as the highest ranked local attraction - the nature wonderland of Stump Pass State Beach Park. Stump Pass offers acres of secluded shoreline & hiking trails plus fantastic fishing on the end. (it is just a quick 5 minute stroll to our left - or your can enjoy free use our kayaks or canoe to explore Stump Pass shoreline & tranquil Lemon Bay. We also love that we can walk just 8 minutes down our beach to the right to get to the popular free yoga classes on the beach, playground, basketball courts, souvenir shop, numerous watersports rentals (jet skis, SUPs, parasailing, boats, tours, etc), & to the Key's 3 most popular restaurants with live tropical music & delicious seafood on their patios. A family-favorite, Flounder's has fun beach games in the sand to entertain kids of all ages (even teens!) while parents dine & listen to live music is close view of the kids.

What makes this house unique

Villa Margarita is our closest cottage to our awesome beach! We fell in love with the perfect location of blue starfish & the relaxed island charm of these adorable beach cottages. Our talented interior designer worked her magic on each blue starfish beach cottage adding all new coastal furnishings & modern conveniences while preserving the nostalgic cottage vibe of yesteryear.

* * Attractive brand new heated, courtyard swimming pool with massage therapy jets & glass-tiled waterfall in common patio area - enjoy! Granite counters, new stainless steel appliances, new cabinets & well equipped kitchen make preparing casual meals a snap. Or enjoy lots of walkable dining options if you don't like to cook. Some of our guests like to catch their dinner in the Bay or Stump Pass, then use our 4 grills to enjoy alfresco patio dining out back.

If you love dolphins like our family does, this is your place We see them frequently jumping in our waves & even coming up right next to the kayaks - an amazing experience. Also plentiful are the pre-historic shark's teeth the area is famous for. Our beach is one of the best places to find these thousands-of-years old gems which make fantastic souvenirs. Our kids love to hunt for them & so do we - it is quite addicting! We treat our guests like family & offer exceptional value with loads of free amenities from all premium channels included free on our new Samsung flatscreen TVs to an extensive array of popular beach gear. We are proud to say many of our guests are repeats - returning annually 'to their blue starfish home by the shore' for another dose of island charm. Enjoy!

You get what you paid for, pictures are overly flattering, management very responsive

  • 3 of 5

This property is a refurbished cottage that the owners tried to really spruce up and turn into a "resort". It is NOT a resort. It's several little, tiny houses they patched up and put a hot tub in the center and put up a resort sign. It looks a little like someone tried their best to design something fancy, but didn't spend the money to do it correctly. The showerhead in the tiny shower in the tiny bathroom was well below my chin (and I'm 5.5). The kitchen looks nice in photos, but there are issues....cheap furnishings, cheap dishware and there is no room to cook. I though the coffee pot might catch on fire the plate was so peeling and dirty.

The location is very good, close to bay and beach. The highlight was watching the baby turtles hatch on the beach. The water and sand were amazing. There's really a lot to do on the island although it looks sleepy. Don't miss the Sand Bar restaurant, awesome food, sand to play in, corn hole and live music. Great for kids and adults! The island also has a nature preserve / park with trails and wild animals in walking distance of the house.

Management was very eager to please us when I contacted them about our disappointments at "check in" - which is just when you show up and let yourself in. The Home Away app they ask you to use is also annoying. They sent someone immediately to fix a bad smell. But, towels are cheap and they expect you to wash them before you leave. Laundry was so far from my "cottage" that I would not have been able to leave my kids alone when I went to the laundry room. But, high efficiency washers with huge capacity. The place has comfortable sleeping spots for 6 - real mattresses, although the king in #1 was mushy! My kids were all happy in the second bedroom with their beds. TV's were great in master bedroom and living area. However, our WIFI never did work properly. The management even came to fix it, but to no avail, we couldn't get it figured out to work more than a few hours at a time. My husband went to a nearby McDonald's and did his work there, easy fix, but frustrating.

The kayak and canoe were great, useful. My kids saw a jellyfish! Ping pong table was great. However, anytime we went outside someone was smoking, the people next to us, by the pool, at the ping pong table, across the street, at the beach. What is it with this town and the smoking? It's a pretty place, but I think if you're looking for a high-class resort, pay more money and go somewhere else.

Owner's Response: Hi Jill, glad you enjoyed the charm of manasota key. I am sorry that you feel that this beach villa did not live up to your very highest expectations. - our team did a very thorough, full investigation of all issues you mentioned. Our wonderful head housekeeper Elena showed your husband during your stay that your Wi-Fi connection was actually being turned off by kids in your villa. (Comcast investigated too) - Elena repeatedly asked your family if there was anything else needed & none of these items were mentioned to her or to me unfortunately so we could easily resolve them for the comfort of your stay. Since hearing about them, a brand new coffee maker, highest quality new towels and dinnerware sets have been added - even though previous guests have been happy with amenities provided. -The king mattress set was already top quality, new, and found to be very comfortable by many happy repeat guests. -We offer family friendly beach villas and beach cottages. We are not a world class resort and are happy that we have low-key unique island Charm at affordable prices for families. You only paid $140 per night + tax/cleaning for your dates. That is excellent value. World class resorts frequently charge more than $500 per night + taxes/fees. We provided numerous freebies: – free shared use of two kayaks and canoe to explore picturesque Lemon Bay, all premium movie channels included free, free laundry facilities only 3 minute walk away, free outdoor ping-pong, free new swim spa in common area with beautiful waterfall and relaxing massage therapy jets. Free parking. Free Wi-Fi. Free beach gear – including 4 folding beach chairs, beach towels, Sand toy set, boogie boards. 4 Outdoor showers, 4 grills in common areas. - 2 bedroom/1 bathroom/ private small lanai. Well equipped kitchen. - we are definitely Non-smoking inside and outside on our grounds. If any guest sees a violation of this policy please anonymously report it immediately & it will be quickly resolved! Housekeepers are there daily and will be extra vigilant about this policy. It is entirely optional for guest to start a load of towels before they leave if they have time to help keep cleaning fee down for guests in future. The homeaway free hospitality suite app is loved by many. Again it's totally free & optional. ---Rest assured all feedback is closely looked into by our great team who work very hard each day so guests can fully relax and enjoy their stay. Best regards, Amy

Beautiful Beach Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing family vacation at the Margarita cottage. Centrally located close to great shops, restaurants and one block from the beach so whether you need groceries, a good cocktail or sand between your toes it was minutes away. With the beach being a block away it was awesome to catch a sunrise, sunset and star gaze at night. The cottage is beautiful, clean and comfortable. Perfect for a family and very family friendly. The week we stayed was not nearly enough and we can not wait to return to the Margarita!

Fabulous Cottege by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three nights in the Margaritta Cottage and loved every minute. Very well appointed cottage with everything a guest could want for cooking and playing at the beach. Lovely linens and absolutely fabulous mattress, didn't want to get out of bed. Although our weather was bad during our stay and we couldn't enjoy the amenities, there were kayaks, beach chairs, towels, umbrellas and even beach strainers provided for locating treasures on the beach. The pool area was enjoyable. This cottage was located in a perfect residential area. one block from the beach and the bay at the other end of the street. Everything was thought out for a perfect stay. Would highly recommend for couples, families or a girls vacation. Many local resturaunts and we explored day trips to Venice and Punta Gorda.

Great beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our recent stay at Margarita very much. The cottage was very clean and everything that was advertised was true. The beach decor is lovely. We enjoyed the outside dining table eating with our friends who rented next door. The screened porch is nicely shaded on those hot days, and the window air conditioners did an adequate job of keeping the indoors cool. The location is perfect - just a very short walk to the fabulous beach and Lemon Bay on the other side. We were in Englewood with a kayak club, and we were able to launch our kayaks one day right at the end of our street. The cottage is also about 1/2 mile from Stump Pass State Park which also has a lovely sand kayak lauch on the Bay side. Lots of paddling in the area. It was too windy, however, on the days we were there which was a disappointment, but always a possibility. We kayaked many local rivers instead, and also to Don Pedro Island just 9 miles south. We would recommend this cottage to anyone wanting to be at the beach. We found lots of shark teeth without even looking and the sunsets were gorgeous. If you are there on Sunday evenings in the summer, make sure to go to the Drum Circle down at the public beach. Everyone gathers to drum down the sun. It's fun. Amy was very responsive to all our needs and easy to contact.
