Cute little cottage on a great street
Loved Kathleen's Cottage Breeze! It was perfect for our family of 3 plus the dog. The 3 bikes were great, plus chairs and anything else you can think of for the beach! The cottage is very cute, nicely decorated, renovated, and comfy. What I would want in a beach cottage if I owned one. I would only suggest a hairdryer and maybe salt, pepper, and oil in the kitchen for cooking. Unfortunately, when we were there, red tide hit the beach pretty badly. There were dead fish everywhere and the smell was horrible for 3-4 days. Kathleen had given us the option to receive a full refund but we were already on our way down and opted to brave it out. We ended up going to Bradenton beach one day and Long Boat Key for the other which was a 1 1/2 hour drive each way. The third day we hung out by a pool. And by July 4th, we could actually enjoy Englewood Beach. The fireworks at Middle Beach was only ok. My most favorite thing to do at Englewood Beach is to search for shark teeth, ride bikes, and we rented a boat out in Lemon Bay on our last day. There is not much to do on sleepy Manasota Key, even for July 4th week, especially if you bring kids(not even an ice-cream shop). You will have to venture north 20 minutes to Venice Beach to find things to do. Dogs are not very welcomed at MK either. Venice Beach has a dog friendly beach. We found some of the non-southern locals to be extremely unfriendly and unwelcoming. The restaurants on the key are not very good either. The Wine Bistro is probably the best and the Tiki Bar is fun and they have a great chicken caesar salad. Do not go to the White Elephant unless you want to eat cigarette smoke while you dine. It was sooooo hot too! I guess, even being from Georgia, I'm not used to this type of heat with 100 % humidity. I think MK is the place for adults to enjoy in the winter time when you want to do nothing but just relax. I just want to stress that Kathleen's place was remarkable but the Key itself is not the place for us.
Pleasant coastal abode near the beach and several fine restaurants.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cool Breeze. A large yard, two airy enclosed porches and a brick patio for outdoor dining added to our enjoyment. The quiet location just off the main drag of Manasota Key was delightful.
Thanks Kathy and Doug, so glad you enjoyed your time at Cool Breeze.... Come back anytime!
Very Nice Property
Close to the water. A few minutes walk to a beautiful sand beach. The home has everything to insure a wonderful vacation. It is very clean. My family enjoyed their Christmas vacation at the beach.
Thanks so much for your lovely review, we are glad you enjoyed our home as much as we do. Come back anytime, we would love to have you.
Wonderfully cozy beach cottage!
We LOVED staying here. The home is comfortable as soon as you pull into the driveway. So cute from the street and has that great beach feel throughout. We stayed here a week and felt at home. Kathleen was so easy to work with and really made us feel comfortable during our stay. Screened porch out front and sun room off back of house. Nice fenced in yard for our dog and QUIET. We slept with windows open and air conditioner off and it was great. No street noise or neighborhood noise. We grilled in the backyard and enjoyed a glass of wine on the patio furniture. I would stay here again without hesitation!!
Thanks so much Julie & Matt! It was a pleasure having you in our home. Call anytime you pass this way again, we would love to have you back anytime.
"Cool Breeze" is a lovely little house within walking distance to the Gulf beaches, Stump Pass, and restaurants. It is beautifully decorated, well maintained, quiet, and peaceful. A wonderful place for a relaxing vacation.
Short stroll to the beach & walking distance from Stump Pass State Park with over a mile of pristine beach and bay surrounded by the clear waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
