  • A hidden hidden treasure and "Castle in the Sky" - Get ready for a fantastic vacation.

    "We rented this amazing home for a week to celebrate the life of my Uncle who recently passed away at 90 and who resided in Engelwood since the 1970's. We decided to bring some family together for a week in his hometown with my Aunt and his family. Luckily, this home was available and provided a wonderful solution and home for us during this time. This house is loaded with design and luxury. It is decorated with both good taste and style. It has a unique layout with the first floor providing 4 nice size bedrooms, 3 baths and an informal recreation room. The upstairs level is for full entertainment with a wonderful kitchen that has everything one needs to entertain. The dinning room and living room are very comfortable with huge views of the Manasota Keys beach and the Gulf Ocean. There are outdoor space is available on both levels. The upstairs deck is to is breath taking with views of the Golf and the Bay. One feels like you are in a private treehouse with views abound. The owner(s) has taken great detail to make this home a special get away in a private home with a resort / hotel feel including luxury towel, beach towels, nice bed lines and evening vanity shower gel, shampoo and conditioners in every bathroom. There are DVDs, games, books, hair dryers, all the cleaning supplies, laundry and dishwasher supplies one needs. The home has been well cared and demonstrates pride of ownership. I believe this to be one of Manasota Key / Engelwood's best vacation rentals and we feel fortunate to have stubbled upon it. "A hidden treasure - a castle in the sky". The owner's communication is excellent and she executes on her word. I was nervous about renting and payment. Lynda was very professional and committed to making this a smooth transaction. Not one issue including seamless access through detailed instructions provided electronically for access and departure. I would definitely recommend this vacation rental home and the owner's professional business transaction and communication. Deposit with returned without any issues. We will definitely stay there again!!!! We are grateful for this special home during a time of memorial and celebration with our family. My 85 year old mother said it best when we were flying home….."The vacation was a "10"!! Thank you Lynda for sharing your home. Wow!!!!!!"

  • Best cottage on the key!

    "I believe this is the best cottage on the key. We loved it here so much we looked at properties and spoke to a realtor. Shells By The Beach is by far the nicest with a perfect location - and we got to stay there! The owner has EVERYTHING you might need. I cannot think of one suggestion, all I have is compliments. I'm home now wondering where I can install an outdoor shower and looking at paint swatches to add some pinks and blues to my décor. Our family of 4 included an 18 yr old male and 12 yr old female. The bikes were utilized constantly and we felt relaxed with the slow speed limit and relaxed setting. Both kids want to return and that says a lot. We beached in the state park and happily dropped in the $2/bike ($3/car) fee for the pristine beach and facilities. However, each evening we just walked across the street for a dip and the sunset. Thank you for a wonderful week. (An afternoon on rented jet skis was a fun splurge.)"

  • Perfect!!!!

    "Everything about our stay was wonderful. The home was very comfortable, clean, and up to date, with all the accommodations one would need..(.i.e. iron, laundry , beach chairs, coolers...etc.) It was just a short walk to the beach, with very private beaches. Would have loved to have had a wagon to transport the chairs, umbrellas, and coolers back and forth to the beach; but considering that was the only exercise I had all week....it was all good. I give this vacation and the home and the owners a 5 star review!!! Beth and her husband left very detailed instructions and locations of activities and resturants which were very helpful. Thank you both for a very welcoming and comfortable stay."

  • Wonderful place!

    "We just spent January at La Coquina and couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay. The kitchen had just been renovated and was perfect, nicer than mine at home! The condo had everything we needed, including a George Foreman grill on the lanai, chairs for the beach and even bikes if we had wanted to ride. The only surprise was the beach erosion was starting to show up where the complex is, but we could get onto the beach and enjoyed many days sitting and walking on the beach and shell hunting. In the evening we just walked from the condo with wine in hand to watch the sunsets over the beach. Beautiful! It is a short, 3/4 mile, walk down to Englewood public beach where there are restaurants, a boardwalk and even yoga on the beach as well as the drum circle on Sunday nights. The owner was very responsive and wonderful to work with, even checking in with us to make sure all was well. Thank you for the wonderful time!"
