Stayed at the Manatee Bay Inn because it was a central base for us to explore the area. The ferry to Key West is very handy to the Inn. The Inn itself is within a 3-4 minute casual stroll to a beautiful beach with spectacular sunsets. The rooms are very comfortable with a lovely balcony overlooking a stunning inlet. Even... More

We loved the property and that it is located in a quiet area. It was a short distance to the beach and restaurants. The owners of the hotel Connie and Axel, were absolutely wonderful. Beautiful apartments with nice surroudings consisting of different flowers and two nice pools. We would love to come back and we recommend this place to everybody!

Beautiful location. Two relaxing pools. Sun deck with view of the bay. Friendly owners. Cute and clean two room apt with balcony view of the bay. You don't need a car as everything is within walking distance however if staying a longer time I recommend it. Sanibel/Captiva island and Lovers Key beach are a short drive and worth the visit....
