About Pete & Carol Hagemann
Property Owners & Managers

Pete and I both love the beach and all it has to offer.  After a lot of searching up and down the east and west coasts of Florida, we feel we discovered the best location for our beach retreats in the quiet city of Englewood on Manasota Key. We 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 here 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 it's 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 guests in January 2017. The best part about this property is the semi-private patio area each retreat has with their own outdoor 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.

We have started our own property management company along the way to bring the 'personal touch' to our guests vacation stay. Our goal, is to ensure from the time you arrive at one of our retreats until the time you leave, the best possible vacation experience filled with memories that want to make you come back again and again!!!
