Recent Manasota Key reviews

  • Great location on Manasota Key

    "Loved the access to the dock, pool and short walk to the beach and restaurants. The condo was spacious and has everything you need. It is just a little dated is all. Susan and team are very responsive and accommodating."

  • Beautiful home

    "This is an absolutely beautiful, very spacious home and a great location. There were seven people in our group, and all of us absolutely loved it. The separation of public and private space is very well done. There was a lot of room for us to gather together, and also, a lot of room to retreat to little corners to read or rest. The house itself is well furnished, beautifully decorated, and has an unbeatable view. The kitchen had everything we needed, and more. It is right on the beach, but the yard in the back gave us the privacy to hangout on the amazing patio. The beach is quiet, and was perfect for our group. There is a publix and a couple of fish markets within driving distance. So, for a group that did a lot of our own cooking, it was perfect. There were also some nice little touches. The day after we got there, Mac, the caretaker came over to say hi. My understanding is that he lives on the other side of the key, and while we didn't need anything, it was nice to know that he was a phone call away. We got there late at night, and Mac had left us a basket of fruit, and some eggs and meat to enjoy for breakfast the next morning. I highly recommend this home, and We would definitely stay here again."

  • Secluded Paradise

    "My family and I absolutely loved staying here, with the beautiful property and it's view of the bay, gorgeous banyan tree, and "secret" path to the beach! I fell in love with the house and property as soon as I saw the pictures on the listing, and everything was just as presented and lived up to my expectations. Being a first time VRBO renter, I was a bit wary, and the owner was very patient and responsive with all my questions. The house is actually equidistant to both the bay and ocean, with the property being on the bayside. It is literally just a minute's walk on the path between the two properties across the street to the beach, and truly the best of both worlds. The house is an original mid-century modern beach house that fits the setting perfectly with it's rustic charms and a wonderful sunroom where we enjoyed the view and the gentle bay breezes. The area is not heavily developed and is so much nicer than the typical tourist-y areas and condos; very peaceful and secluded, yet minutes away from restaurants and stores. We rented a kayak for the week, and my daughter (an athlete with some kayaking experience) was able to paddle it from the rental place to the house (about 6 miles) in just under 2 hours. We took turns taking it out for shorter excursions on the bay throughout the week. I loved the natural beach, where we found many shells and a few fossilized sharks' teeth. We saw many different types of shorebirds, including sandpipers, herons, egrets, fish hawks, pelicans, and more; plus a few interesting fish. I was fascinated by the colony of Black Spiny-Tailed iguana that are there; I spotted several sunning themselves on the rocks along the beach (they are black and orange, not green) and one was by the house the morning we left. At the owner's suggestion, we stopped by the manatee viewing center at the power plant in Tampa on our way down from the airport and saw manatee and huge tarpon, and got to pet stingray in their brand new exhibit. We tried twice to go to the Stump Pass State Park, but it was full :( I would suggest going first thing in the morning as the parking is very limited. The Lock and Key has great Boom Boom shrimp and peanut butter pie (entrees were okay), Beach Road Bistro has a small menu but the Kobe beef sliders were excellent, and Farlow's On The Water had the best steak (St. John's) I think I've ever had. Calling ahead is highly recommended. I really didn't want to leave, and would definitely stay here again!"

  • The perfect place for R&R

    "We absolutely love this property and have been returning to it each summer for several years. The pool area is great, access to the beach is easy, and the location allows for easy access to great fishing. The house is very well maintained and cleaned. The owner lives locally and is a fantastic person. I would highly recommend renting this home."
