About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Rated one of the TOP FIVE VRBO rentals on Manasota Key for its size, you'll not want to pass up a chance to enjoy all it has to offer.

Relax at your ultimate Manasota Key vacation get away!

Welcome to Paradise.

Enjoy your getaway at this this spacious, well appointed home with updated furnishing, top of the line appliances, granite counter tops and cabinets throughout, situated just steps from the Gulf of Mexico beaches.

Manasota Key, a quiet barrier island on the Gulf of Mexico is located just south of Longboat Key, Lido Key, Siesta Key, and Casey Key.

The Sugar Shack has been recently updated with new ceramic tile throughout the living areas & kitchen and new carpet in the bedrooms. It comes complete with WIFI and high-speed internet, if you choose to stay "on the grid", however after a day or so in paradise, getting off-the-grid becomes much easier.

The Master bathroom is finished with a granite counter top, ceramic tile floor and combination tub shower. Guest bathroom has a granite counter top and a ceramic tile stall shower.

All 3 bedrooms have over-sized closets and televisions for your enjoyment.

Imagine being located on Manasota Key and staying less than 150 yards from the beach!

Lounge in the sun or under the moonlight on 2nd floor large deck, or enjoy some R&R on the large covered ground floor lanai with ceiling fans to keep you cool.

If the beach is more your thing, which we suspect it probably is, fill up the Sugar Shack's beach-wagon with the supply of beach toys for the kids, rafts, chairs, or noodles to enjoy the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

If fishing is more up your alley, fish from the beach, or from Lemon Bay, both are under 150 short steps away from the home.

Shell & Shark Tooth hunting is a popular way to also pass the time on Manasota Key, you wont come home empty handed.

Several restaurants with live entertainment are a short jaunt from the home (walking distance for most), more than enough places to visit a new one every night during a weeks stay.

Golf, Jet Ski's, Charter Fishing, Snorkeling, Kayaking, Paddle-boarding, Dolphin Watching Tours, Bicycle, and Boat rentals are all available on the island.

Come experience why the Sugar Shack on Manasota Key is such a popular destination for our guests of all ages.

Warm, comfortable, inviting and nice & clean!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time there. We’d never been to this island and loved the overall feel...1-2 minute walk one direction and see beautiful sunrises (and several times we saw dolphins playing)...1-2 minute walk the other direction and on a really nice beach...gorgeous sunsets...restaurants in walking distance...owners that are fun and easy to work with...beach towels, umbrella, chairs...a totally laid back cozy environment. A super comfortable bed in Master BR...Kitchen well stocked with a number of items left behind. We enjoyed some pancake mix left behind...& we left a big jar of pickles...books, games, an Awesome huge deck...many great features! The property feels loved and cared for- not like rental property. There was just my husband & I and it was way bigger than we needed...a great value for a family! Highly recommend 👍?

Ideal location on the Gulf.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying on this street where we could walk a few steps one direction to Lemon Bay and not much further the other direction to the Gulf. It was an absolutely wonderful location. The house itself is well-appointed and nicely decorated. Inclusion of a beach wagon, beach chairs and other accessories was an added bonus. We look forward to returning.

Tranquility Found

  • 5 of 5

Manasota Key is perfect this time of year. The sunrises on Lemon Bay & the sunsets on the Gulf are breathtaking and weather is moderate and enjoyable. We met other residents at the beach for yoga yesterday morning and enjoyed live entertainment in the evening at an island restaurant. This was the perfect compliment to our holiday season!

The Sugar Shack is ideally located near everything. Takes just seconds to walk to the beach and it's close to dining. Then again, the home is so well stocked we stayed home and grilled many night.

You can't go wrong with this choice.

I enjoyed everything about the sugar shack. The beach was so close. They have everything you could need available to you in the home. Close to great restaurants and so quiet and cozy! Great place to go to get away and relax.

It was beautiful and completely relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect. We had the right amount of living space and outdoor space with everything we could possibly need for jaunts to the beach, making dinners, grilling, or just hanging out. The place was warm, welcoming, super clean, and completely charming. We could not thank Molly and David enough for their clear sense of the needs of their tenants. Our vacation was perfect!!!
