“Best Vacation I have ever had!!”

Reviewed 20 Jan 2017

Had such a great time at Baker Beach House. The view, the weather and finding sharks teeth were fantastic! Bruce was extra helpful helping me get my medications via UPS. The only con was internet was spotty as another review stated, but who needs the internet with the great beach to walk everyday! Thank you Bruce for everything.

“Easy living”

Reviewed 15 Jun 2016

Our stay was wonderful! The house is very spacious with a great kitchen, 4 bathrooms, garage, screened pool, and so much more. The beach is just a short walk over the bank and it is gorgeous. At high tide the water gets very close to the bank but if you go a little ways up or down the beach it opens up nicely. We found bunches of sharks teeth and spent most of our time on the beach. The house is nestled among other rental houses but it is not a high traffic busy area and everyone is very friendly. Beautiful area, nice little towns, can't wait to come back! Thank you!

“A Nature Vacation”

Reviewed 6 Mar 2016

visiting this lovely home this year for a short vacation really was the best. The home was beautifully kept, plenty of towels for the beach bath and pool and hot tub.. Many lovely bedrooms, pool was always inviting, even on cooler days. The owners of this home were wonderful to deal with. You may step outside in the mornings, and have your coffee or tea on the dock, or just set and watch nature from inside the house. Plenty of toys were left to use, bikes, kayaks, and there are many beaches and parks to explore.. You never have to leave to enjoy the Florida experience with nature. I would recommend this lovely home to any couple or larger family. It was delightful. Yes I would stay at this well kept home again. Thanks again Jennifer and Ken.....

View was beautiful, big house - older but well maintained - very comfortable and Bruce Baker was very informative and helpful!!

“Nice space and beach access”

Reviewed 8 Feb 2016

We had a great time at this beach house on Manasota Key. There was plenty of space and we really enjoyed the outdoor decks and pool area. We were able to access the beach using the stairs at the end of the small road and got our share of sharks teeth! It was nice having a garage and the kitchen facilities were super - plenty of room for multiple people to cook. We wish the pool had been warmer - the solar heater didn't seem to have much effect and it was a bit chilly. There are no curtains upstairs which really aren't needed for privacy but yard lights from nearby houses and road was a nuisance at night. Master bedroom, walk-in closet, and bath were all great. Wireless spotty in some areas of the house.

“Vacation 2015”

Reviewed 22 Jun 2015

Good morning Bruce. Just wanted to let you know we made it back ok. We really enjoyed our stay there. My wife, daughter and granddaughter all loved the pool and the view. The view from the master bedroom was fantastic, morning and night. Our last night there we witnessed a terrific lightening show for about 3 hours. We were able to walk part of the beach in the evening, but, was usually under water. If anything, that would have been the draw back. But, there were plenty of beaches elsewhere, and we enjoyed them and the restaurants. This makes our 25th year coming to Manasota Key, staying at different places, but we really loved this one. Maybe we will see you again soon. Thank you,

Owner's reply: The word here is that the State of Florida and Charlotte County are going to institute a beach re-nourishment project! This would include the area from Stump Pass up to the Charlotte County line, which is about a quarter mile north of our house. This would give us a very nice beach for some time. They haven't released the timing or start date, but it does appear that this will happen! Stay tuned!!

“PERFECT VACATION RENTAL!!!”

Our condo unit 1-D at Turtle Bay in Englewood had everything we had hoped for and more! The beds were comfortable, the unit was very clean and not in the least outdated!! The owner, Susan, is an exceptional individual which saw to all our needs!! We didn't want to leave!!!

“Gorgeous Home”

Reviewed 30 Jun 2014

Our family stayed at this home for 5 days in June, and the photos reflect the home perfectly. We had 8 adults and two small children, and everyone enjoyed the beautiful screened in pool and covered patio area. The home was clean and very well maintained. We spent the entire 5 days relaxing. The beach was just a very short walk from the house and was totally private. My husband and I enjoyed our quiet walks on the beach and the sunsets were incredible. We're definitely ready for a return visit.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Bruce, I wanted to thank you for the quick return on the security deposit. Also to let you know we had a great time at the house and had a great vacation. Picked up a lot of sharks teeth and saw dolphins almost every day. Wished we could have stayed longer and didn't want to come home. Its also really nice of you to have the extra things in the shed. I'm sure we will return. Thanks again. Tina

Denise and Bruce,
We are LOVING our stay at the beach house!!! It couldn't be more perfect. The view, the pool, the little room over the garage that the kids have claimed as their space, the huge master deck. It really has been a great time! THANK YOU!!!!

Stephanie

Dear Bruce Baker,

thanks a lot for the nice days we had in manasota key in your really lovely house.
We really enjoyed it being there.

I wanted to write before and I also wanted to leave some thanks and message for you in the house, but we didn´t manage it - sorry -
because our daughter Barbara become ill and she took a flight home with us - she wanted to go to New York from Tampa after Manasota, but then she came home with us.
Our flight was from West Palm Beach - so we had to drive some hours the day we left and so there was less time to leave a message for you as I wanted and some wine or flowers.
Our daughter is getting better now and everything will be ok again.

So let me say thank you at this way.
The house is really lovely and also the place. Just great to sit on the terasse or near the tree on the beach and watch the dolphins - incredable - I never saw them so near and so many of them.

Here in Austria/Linz the weather is very cold now and we also have snow - so I like to think on the nice warm days near the beach and the walks on the beach and so on.
If we ever will come to Florida again we will return to this lovely place.

Best regards from Linz,

Helga.
