Located on beautiful Manasota Key (Englewood) Florida in Sarasota County this 3 bedroom 2 ½ bath single family home offers a true getaway from the Northern USA or European Climates and a true tropical paradise anytime of the year. Set on almost half an acre amidst over 50 palm trees and numerous Gnarled Oaks, you will be but 100 yards from a private Gulf Beach access home of the world’s best sunsets. The beach features unlimited supply of sharks teeth and interesting shells while offering the avid surf fisherman a bountiful catch.

The property has been totally renovated in (2016) with all new appliances, new furniture and a modern well equipped Galley Kitchen. The three bedrooms accommodate 6 adults easily and the spacious baths make living comfortable. The completely renovated deck has been screened in and carpeted offering a very relaxing getaway for barbecuing (new Weber Grill) or just relaxing.

Our home also has a heated swimming pool for those times when the beach isn’t calling and is internet equipped with televisions in 3 of the rooms.

The area offers many excellent close by dining venues nearby shopping and a short run to quaint downtown Englewood where a Thursday farmers market and numerous “special ‘ event for your consumption.

The Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been coming to "The Perfect Spot" for a number of years. The new renovations and furniture are great. The house is bright and beautiful - just across the street from a gorgeous private beach. The living space has been thoughtfully increased with a new screened in porch and deck that now overlooks the pool and lanai - new pool heater too. We found the home well equipped with awesome brand new appliances.

The new owner, Jim, is easy to work with and very helpful. A great location, now truly "The Perfect Spot".We'll be back!

Two Weeks in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Manasota Key for years, but this was our first time renting a house. We read the reviews and looked at the pictures, but this house was even better than expected. The house is spacious, very clean and comfortable. The owners have thought of everything you might need, so you feel right at home as soon as you walk-in. The neighborhood is quiet and with the oversized lot, you have complete privacy. Having our own pool was an added bonus, and it was maintained weekly during our stay. One unexpected surprise was the outside shower, which we used exclusively. On our short walk to the beach, we never failed to be in awe of that first glimpse of beautiful blue water. Being surrounded by homes rather than condos, we practically had the beach to ourselves. Each night we walked along the shore and waited for the sky to explode with color, which never failed to impress. The two weeks went by much too fast, but we have found our new home away from home, so we will definitely be back.

A Little Bit of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year as a snowbird and our second year in this great house. We have been spoiled by staying here. The location is wonderful. Love the heated pool and being able to walk across the street to the private beach access. Last year we explored, this year we relaxed. Great place for that. Looking forward to next year! Thanks to the wonderful owners.

Exactly where we wanted to be!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for the month of December 2014. It was just perfect for our family of five. Although we could have rented a bigger, newer home further from the beach, we are so glad we chose this home. The private beach access allowed us to enjoy a practically empty beach most days and amazing sunsets every single night without the hassle of packing everyone up and driving to the beach. Thanks for a wonderful month in your beach home!

Island haven

  • 5 of 5

If you want to get away and relax, this is the place the do it. In a very attractive setting, this house is spacious, comfortable, and well-kept. Its openness is ideal for lounging, entertaining, or treating the family to a home away from home only steps from the beach. The large upper deck offers a place to grill and to dine al fresco with both friends and/or family. The very large pool beckons water lovers and is a welcome complement to the nearby Gulf. The tree-canopied road on which the house sits is an open invitation to bicycle riders. There are plenty of restaurants (especially, the Gulf View Grill and the Lock and Key Restaurant) and other amenities nearby. The place is a perfect prescription for anyone who needs to escape, for a time, the hassles and the humdrum of everydayness.

We have recommended this property to friends from France and well as from closer to home, and we would do so again without reservation. The owners make one and all feel more than welcome.
