WHAT OUR GUESTS ARE SAYING

Stop looking you found the perfect property!! A Paradise Dream Home Away from Home!
To summarize our stay, it was nothing but exceptional! It seemed that every little detail had been thought of to make it feel just like home, you truly only need to bring clothes! The property owners were so kind and genuine, they even had a welcome basket and snacks and drinks waiting for us. I was blown away by how perfect the property felt from its lush landscaping and it’s privacy with each suite, with the highest cleanliness I have seen in a rental property yet, to the amazing amenities it offered! Kayaking is a must, dolphins swam right next to us, and we rode the bikes all the way to the end of the key and back. We were blown away at the gorgeous scenery of the key and how crystal blue the waters are. The beach is a short walk from the property, less than 3 minutes, we found a total of 13 shark teeth in one day! The property owners even have beach carts for guests to use that are equipped with chairs, sand combers, and umbrellas. Our dog even loved the property and our favorite memory was taking her kayaking with us! We stayed for three nights and we wish we could have booked longer!!! We will absolutely be back again! We LOVED it and highly recommend it!!!!! I am recommending it to everyone I know!! Must Book if you are looking for a perfect vacation!

Perfect getaway
Pleasantly surprised at how the owners thought of every detail. No need to bring anything but your clothes, food and sunscreen!! Lots of free things provided, biking, paddle board, kayaks, beach & a nice fire pit. You can even do your laundry in their private facilities, hang out in the cool Adirondack chairs or surfboard tables! The outdoor showers even have shampoo/soap etc. Any questions were promptly answered, Carol was so accommodating. Everything inside the bungalows is updated and tastefully decorated. The grounds have gorgeous landscaping and plenty of lighting at night.

The Perfect Spot!
The place was amazing and exceeded all expectations. I was looking for a relaxing place with a great view, and I found it at Carol's rental on Manasota Key. What a find! The place was clean and quiet and had everything I needed for a great vacation. It's definitely a premium beachfront property, and Carol Hagemann went above and beyond to make my stay a great one. I will definitely be back! Thank you!

Great location, Great place!
We had a wonderful time at our Pelican Perch rental! The location was terrific and the rental had everything imaginable for an enjoyable stay! We were so happy to have bikes and beach chairs at our fingertips as well. We will surely be back for another visit next year. I would highly recommend renting from Carol! The rental was spotless and in a perfect location.

Wonderful Florida Getaway
Loved the place and use of bikes, chairs, coolers, kayaks. Excellent location next to park and beach. We had a wonderful time biking around the island, hanging on the beach, and fly fishing / paddling around Lemon Bay in the 2 person kayak. The apartment was very comfortable and well designed. It had everything we needed. Definitely a turnkey vacation solution.

* * * ~ ABOUT US ~ * * *


Pete & I both love the beach and all it has to offer! After lots of searching up and down the east and west coasts of Florida, we feel that we have discovered the best location for our beach retreats & bungalows in the quiet city of Englewood on Manasota Key. We have found our “little slice of paradise” and can’t wait to share it with you!

We are “living the dream” here on Manasota Key! Our days are filled...walks on the beach, shell & shark tooth hunting, swimming, friendly folks, watching the osprey, bike riding, kayaking, paddle boarding, boating with friends and watching some amazing sunsets. Everyday is an outdoor adventure day on Manasota Key!

Our north property was purchased in June 2016 and has 4 retreats. We have totally renovated inside & out. The best part about this property is the location to the beach...150 walking steps. We created a tropical oasis in the backyard with lush landscaping around 2 paver patios and our signature surfboard shower with hot & cold water.

Our south property was purchased in December 2016. We tackled renovations inside & out and were ready for our first guests in January 2017. The best part about this property is each retreat’s semi-private patio area that includes their own outdoor gas grill. For larger families or guests, we created a community area at the center of the property where they can gather to just relax, eat or hang out.

Beachcomber Bungalows is located between our south and north properties and was purchased in 2018. This location opened for guests in November 2019 after a year of extensive renovations. Each bungalow has its own semi-private outdoor area complete with outdoor seating and a gas grill.

Beachcomber of Manasota Key (Beachfront) is located directly on the beach! The best part about this gulf front location is the beautiful views of the water and wonderful sunsets.

Beachcomber Hideaways is located to the west of our Bungalows. Completely renovated inside & out, this property welcomed its first guests in February 2021. Set amid lush tropical plantings, the Hideaways are definitely “hidden away”!

Beachcomber Bayfront of Manasota Key is located on beautiful Lemon Bay. Enjoy your front row seat to each and every fantastic sunrise! This property was purchased in October of 2021 and has been hosting happy guests ever since.

Our Bayfront property also includes boat slips that can be rented when you book a stay at any of our properties. The slip rental includes electricity, ice, fish cleaning station w/running water, and trailer parking. Now you can bring your boat on vacation!

We have started our own property management company along the way to bring the “personal touch” to your vacation. From the moment you arrive at one of our retreats until the moment you leave, our goal is to ensure that you have the best possible vacation experience!

You will find yourself with wonderful memories that will make you want to return again and again!!!!
