“Private and peaceful!”

Reviewed 23 May 2016

Confession: the "public" can make me anxious, even angry. Other people's behavior or personalities are not something I wanted to risk being factored into our family’s rare and special vacation. That's the main reason we chose this property and I am so glad we did. The house is arranged in a U-shape with the pool and Jacuzzi positioned inside the U. It is also situated at the end of a cul-de-sac with no one on the left side. Our family was able to enjoy a wonderful and peaceful week swimming, reading, relaxing-- without another soul bothering us. Other positives: the house was very clean with parking inside the garage (with automatic opener), the master suite is on the other side of the house from the kids' rooms, and all of the house is tiled... so it's not a huge deal if your feet are a little wet. There were plenty of basic supplies in the kitchen, for the pool, for the beach, etc., and the beach wasn't far. We ended up staying at the house more than going to the beach because it was so great. One last thing! Alex, the owner, knows his food. He only recommends 4 restaurants and we ate at two of them on the two occasions we ate out. Glad we did! Because we listened to him, we had good experiences both times (Lock and Key and Café 776)! We had a REALLY great time, and a HUGE part of it was because of where we stayed. Highly recommend!

“Best rental ever!!!”

Reviewed 4 May 2016

Just returned from stay at this beautiful home. It was wonderful! Quiet neiborhood - yet close to everything! The house is exactly as pictured and Alex, the owner is so pleasant and helpful. It was unbelievable how many things are there for your use - beach chairs, umbrella, beach cooler, towels, fishing rods..... We can't wait to return!

“Nice Pool Home!”

Reviewed 16 Aug 2015

Nice home in a nice location. Easy access to beaches. We enjoyed being on the private lake which was nice and quiet. Alex was very nice and helpful. Everything you could need for a beach location was at this house. Would definitely recommend this house. The street that the house was located on could use some work as it had many potholes but other than that it was a great house in a great location.

“Week Long Family Vacation”

Reviewed 16 Aug 2015

We can say we will be back. Everything that is said about this place is 100% true. My wife and I went down with our three kids and my mother-in-law. It was truly a great experience. We were 10 minutes away from family and they came over and we were able to sit outside in the screen porch and play cards and talk while the kids played in the pool and the hot tub. The owner was readily available and did a great job in covering everything with us. We know we'll be back next year!

“Manasota Key”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2014

This was our second visit to Manasota Key, but not our last! EVERYTHING about this property appealed to us and we have never been more pleased with a vacation rental. The privacy, the pool, access to the bay as well as to the private beach all made this home the perfect vacation rental. The house was very clean and the kitchen was supplied with all cookware and dinnerware needed. (Although some of the cooking utensils could be replaced.) There were plenty of linens and beach towels available. The screened in pool was sparkling clean and it was a real pleasure to not have to dodge spiders and spider webs in the pool area. (Our last rental had this problem.) The landscaping in the front of the house was amazing and offered privacy from the road as well as neighboring properties. The only time we heard our neighbors is when we were fishing from the dock on the bay. It's obvious that the owners go the extra mile for their guests. Just a mention - we were a bit concerned on our first visit to the beach since we were expecting a sandy bottom on the gulf. Approximately 15-30 feet into the water you run into rock ledges. What we thought was going to be a problem was actually one of the highlights of our trip. We all wore water shoes and spent the majority of our time in the water with goggles exploring the ledges. We saw so many different species of small fish - quite a few that we have had in our aquarium. It was amazing! The sand bar located not too far into the water was also fun to explore. Lots of sand dollars as well as a few snails and crabs to watch. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet getaway. We will definitely return!

“Beautiful Vacation Home - better than any hotel!”

Reviewed 14 Jun 2014

After searching endlessly for the right hotel in the Sarasota area right on the gulf coast, I took a chance and decided to look into renting a vacation home instead. I was a little leery of trying something new, but I was running out of time and options. I instantly fell in love with this vacation home, and when I saw the article that this luxury home had been rated the top Florida vacation rental in 2013, I was assured this would be the perfect place to stay! Alex, the owner, was wonderful! He showed us around the house and the gorgeous property it sits on. He made us feel right at home. As for the vacation home, where do I begin? My parents came with my family, and they stayed in the master suite which is nestled at one end of the home almost secluded. They had a huge master bedroom and bath. The bed was comfortable, they had their own TV, a couple of chairs to relax in, and their own private entrance to the hot tub and pool area. The master bathroom had a deep marble tub that anyone wanting to relax on vacation would love! The rest of the home consisted of a living room overlooking the pool and hut tub area that I found was the perfect place for someone to sip coffee and watch the breathtaking sunrise each morning. There was also a dining room and full kitchen where you can save a ton of money and eat your meals right there as a family, and a laundry room (with soap provided) if you want to do laundry. The living room had a TV and play station with games and controllers for kids to enjoy and another bathroom was just down the hall. Last, there were two more bedrooms, one for a couple, and one for kids with two twin beds and a computer! There is free Wi-Fi, and let's not forget your own private heated pool and hot tub! Outside, you will find a lush garden with an array of flowers, trees, and bushes...your own tropical paradise! There is a BBQ area (he provides the propane) with a beautiful hand crafted tile table and benches. There is also a swing that over looks a private salt water inlet, and a pier where you can fish. Early morning you can watch a beautiful sunrise glisten over the water as fish literally jump out of the water or swim right up to the pier. This tropical paradise provides complete R&R, but is close to beaches, restaurants, and stores as well. Bring your camera for unimaginable lifetime memories. I took hundreds there! What's the down fall? I did not stay longer! If I visit this area again, my only hope is no one else is renting it!
