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.

Absolutely a Great Place to Stay
The unit we stayed in was updated with the cutest beach decor and was super clean. Had everything you could think of to enjoy your stay. Bikes, paddle boards, kayaks, beach necessities, etc. The back yard had a fire pit and outside shower also. Staff was super friendly. Beach access was a very short walk and was convenient. Great location as well. Would highly recommend this property. Look forward to staying there in the future!

Home Away from Home
We felt relaxed and at home right away. This retreat is extremely clean, cozy, and in a perfect location to relax. The bay views were perfect to watch the wildlife, and a four minute walk to the beach with a beach cart, chairs, umbrella and towels provided were perfect. Beach yoga in the AM, walked the beautiful beaches daily, rode bikes, rented jet skis, watched sunrises and sunsets, enjoyed the local restaurants, Thursday AM farmers market was an excellent find. Carol and Pete are wonderful hosts who pay attention to the little details that can elevate your stay … everything is well maintained and clean! I am ready to go back to Manasota Key, and will definitely rent here again!

Above our Expectations!
We stay in a lot of properties throughout each year. Often they meet our expectations and we are very happy. Rarely do they exceed our expectations but "What A View!" did just that! Perfect setting, amenities were well thought out and the extra personal touches put this one over the top! The owners also texted to make sure everything was OK. I can't give this a high enough review.... it's awesome!

* * * ~ 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!!!!
