Holiday Rental House
Our home is beautifully situated on a double lot on the preferred South end of the Key. The beach is just steps away, 5 small beach lots. Our street just dead ends into the beach. You do not need to cross private property. Very few streets have this access. Shells abound on the beach. Many enjoy hunting for prehistoric, fossilized shark teeth. This is 'old Florida'. Unspoiled by high-rises and large crowds. Other than our beach which extends at least a mile in each direction, at the end of our road, you may also enjoy the 4 public beaches on the Key. Stump Pass Beach State Park, a 10 minute walk South, Englewood Beach a 8 minute walk North, Blind Pass Beach (otherwise known as Middle Beach) and Manasota Key Beach both reached with a short drive. All a little different and all wo...Our home is beautifully situated on a double lot on the preferred South end of the Key. The beach is just steps away, 5 small beach lots. Our street just dead ends into the beach. You do not need to cross private property. Very few streets have this access. Shells abound on the beach. Many enjoy hunting for prehistoric, fossilized shark teeth. This is 'old Florida'. Unspoiled by high-rises and large crowds. Other than our beach which extends at least a mile in each direction, at the end of our road, you may also enjoy the 4 public beaches on the Key. Stump Pass Beach State Park, a 10 minute walk South, Englewood Beach a 8 minute walk North, Blind Pass Beach (otherwise known as Middle Beach) and Manasota Key Beach both reached with a short drive. All a little different and all worth visiting. The home is also on a canal. Bring your boat, kayak, jet ski or paddle board. There is plenty of parking on our large lot or driveway for your trailer. Many of the local rental agencies will deliver a kayak, paddles and jackets to the house and you can just launch into the gorgeous Lemon Bay. Enjoy the dining area of the home while watching the wildlife in the canal. Great Blue Herons, Night Herons, Egrets, fish and manatees all frequent the canal on our property. Our guests enjoy our master bedroom suite. A real luxury in a beach house! King size bed, quartz, double vanities in the bath and a walk in closet. The master also has double sliding doors that go to the outdoor shower (there are also two indoor showers). The outdoor shower is private, has a bench and hot and cold water. The shower head can be detached to just wash the sand from your feet after sunset or for your daily shower. Each bedroom and the living room has at least a 46 inch television with an extensive cable channel lineup. The kitchen is complete. There are stainless steel appliances. The oven is a double. The smaller over is perfect for a beach house as it heats and cools quickly. The fridge has exterior door ice and water. The dishwasher quiet. Powerful microwave, toaster, 2 coffee makers (drip and Keurig) and blender round out the amenities. Service for 12. We provide two bicycles, beach towels, linens, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, some floaty devices and toys. Soap, t.p., laundry detergent etc. are supplied for an approximate one week stay, depending on the size of your party. Newly added coffee patio off of the master suite is private and relaxing. The double decker screened, under roof patios are a nice complement to the outdoor wooden deck. Truly a year round home. NOTE: Garage only available to guests staying one month or longer. Space above garage is not for rent and is not included in the description of home. It will not be occupied during your stay. Upper screened deck, with ceiling fans, is available for your use.

Interaction with guests
I am always available by phone, email or text. There is a guest book at the house that has all the information needed for your stay including points of interest, things to do and even restaurant menus. The house is very complete with everything needed for your stay (except your clothes and food), but feel free to ask questions. I am happy to help!

This home is perfect. It truly is a home, not your typical "vacation rental". Awesome wood floors and ceiling. Well furnished with quality home furniture and appliances. I have rented this home 3 different years because it is such a gem. Always clean, nice linens...More

Thank you for such a thoughtful review. You touched on many of the features of the home and area that we love as well. We are fortunate to have access to the beach just 60 seconds away. Not all streets on the Key are afforded...More

About the neighbourhood
Our home is located on the preferred South end of Manasota Key. The beach is a 60 second walk from our home. There is no private property to cross our street dead ends onto the beach. Only a few streets on the Key afford this luxury. Several restaurants and tiki bars are a 10 minute walk away. Our home is far enough away that the nightly live music will not disturb you at the house, but close enough to walk to and enjoy. There is a street legal oversized golf cart that will shuttle if you prefer. In the other direction, again, a short walk, is the beautiful Stump Pass Beach State Park. There are four public beaches on the Key. Each unique and worthwhile to visit, but I prefer our own private beach at the end of the street.
Getting around
There are several street legal golf cart services that will transport you to the restaurants and tiki bars on the Key. Free or for tips. This is a Key (barrier island). A car is necessary. Grocery is only 6 minutes away by car (convenience store a walk away). Walmart is a 10 minute drive. 5 restaurants within walking distance but there is a wide and varied selection on the mainland.
