Manasota Key Beach

Manasota Key is one of the best places in the country to hunt for pre-historic shark's teeth! These thousands of year old treasures our plentiful on our beach and make unique souvenirs! Bring them home to share with friends or turn them into cool jewelry. We enjoy a highly-desired prime location on Manasota Key where you can walk to lots to do or kick back on our breath-taking beaches & do nothing at all. Blue Starfish Resort just opened a brand new "Swim Spa" with gorgeous glass tile waterfall which flows into pool with massage therapy jets - enjoy!! Swim Spa (small in-ground pool with relaxing spa features) is located in resort's common paver patio area surrounded by mature palm trees. Only 1 minute brief walk until your toes are in the Gulf of Mexico. Only 1 minute walk the opposite way to drop the kayaks into tranquil Lemon Bay to experience dolphins up close. Only 5 minute walk to the magical Stump Pass State Beach Park - #1 ranked attraction locally & a natural wonderland which can't be built on - just acres of untouched shoreline - best explored on foot, by bike or kayak and we offer free use of our kayaks & canoe to our guests.

 

Owner info

Beach Bound Escapes

About the owner: My husband Frank's and my favorite memories growing up are of family vacations to Florida's spectacular beaches to visit grandparents. Ironically, we first met each other on one such Florida vacation visiting relatives after college - introduced by grandparents. Frank grew up with fun-filled, memorable annual trips to Manasota Key. I knew how much he loved it so we spent years searching for the perfect location on the key so our kids and guests could be close to our great beach and so much to do. It is also the perfect spot to just kick back and do nothing but watch the waves roll in. We designed the cottages of blue starfish beach resort to offer guests everything our own family would want in a beach escape and then some. We treat our guests like family and are proud to say we have numerous repeat guests to make blue starfish an annual tradition.

Why the Owner Chose Manasota Key, FL, USA:
Location, location, LOCATION! Not to mention all new furnishings & updated interior done by our very talented interior designer with numerous FREE amenities! Steps to stunning beach, serene Lemon Bay, magical Stump Pass State Beach Park & walkable to fun nightlife at Flounder's & the extremely popular free yoga classes on the beach. In searching for this property, we noticed a number of area beaches 'disappeared in high tide' so we were thrilled to find a prime spot on the key with plentiful sand at all times that never gets crowded because only vacationers & residents can park here. We also love that our beach is one of the best places on earth to find the pre-historic sharks teeth the area is famous for! The ultimate free souvenir!! Our kids have found tons of these thousand year old treasures.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our talented interior designer has worked her magic to create post-card beach cottages mixing nostalgic touches with modern conveniences and a relaxed island vibe just steps to the captivating waters of the Gulf of Mexico. As owners, we are obsessed with constantly improving the vacation experience. We are lucky to enjoy a steady stream of low-key, friendly guests who share our love for this best kept secret in vacation destinations. blue starfish resort is sure to please all ages & take us back to a simpler time of hunting for pre-historic sharks teeth, pretty seashells and jumping waves then returning to our appealing beach cottage with all the comforts of home. Guests enjoy free use of our kayaks & canoe to explore our picturesque shoreline. We are fortunate to be neighbors of the #1 ranked local attraction - Stump Pass State Beach Park & its acres of unspoiled, pristine shoreline & hiking trails. As parents, we know how important it is to offer tons of kid fun items- deluxe body boards & skim boards to play in the waves, beach toy sets to build amazing sand castles, outdoor Ping-Pong onsite for fun after beach time & numerous books, board games & all free premium channels on our new high definition flatscreen TVs. Adults can enjoy tropical cocktails at our self-serve Tiki Bar & grill up the fish they caught to serve in our alfresco dining tables. * Attractive brand new heated, courtyard swimming pool with massage therapy jets & stunning glass-tile waterfall in common patio area - enjoy! Lots of relaxing seating options for each place. Try blue starfish once and we think you'll be back for many more years for another dose of our unique island charm & warm hospitality.
