Everything You Need!

Date of Stay:

Everything you need! I stayed here with my 18-year-old daughter and 14-year-old niece. They had everything we needed and plus! The girls thoroughly enjoyed the paddle boards and kayaks. Soooo clean. Love the outdoors surfboard shower - wonderful for after a day at the beach. Carol was very responsive to any of our needs or questions. Just a short walk to the beach.


Date of Stay:

This was a perfect place for our family to enjoy a few days in this beautiful area. Access to the beaches was great, the back yard was unique and inviting, Carol was quick to respond to questions, and we would not hesitate to stay here again and again!

Great place, Highly Recommend!

Date of Stay:

This property was exactly as advertised. Updated and comfortable, wonderful outdoor shared spaces, bikes and beach chairs! Also loved yoga on the beach each morning.

Blissful 3-night Stay with Beachcomber

Date of Stay:

My family of 4 had a perfect stay with Beachcomber. Our 2 bedroom rental was perfect for our family of 4; the backyard and super short walk to the beach made it even better. Beachcomber has really thought of everything possible. When they say just back your bags, they mean it - bikes, chairs, coolers, kayaks (with trailers), firewood and so much more was all right there which made our stay a true vacation. We'd definitely return if our schedule allows.

Short Getaway

Date of Stay:

We absolutely loved Barefoot Bliss. The unit was just as described, and very clean. The property had everything you could possibly want, and the best outdoor area ever with shower, fire pit, chairs, everything. We used the kayaks and SUP. We only had a short time here and wanted to stay longer. Will definitely be back. Although we did not see the inside of the other properties, they all looked great from the outside too!

Absolutely Perfect

Date of Stay:

The Barefoot Bliss property was perfect. The thoughtful extras made it the best VRBO we’ve stayed in since coming to Englewood many years ago. Everything was clean and well appointed. Carol is amazing and was there to help if needed. We will look at Beachcomber properties first for our next trip later this year.

Barefoot Bliss

Date of Stay:

Our stay at Barefoot Bliss was excellent. The property has been very well supplied with so many conveniences. Snacks, beverages, full coffee service, and linens abound. Their are plenty of beach items such as chairs, umbrellas, and carts. Bicycles, kayaks, and surfboards are readily available. The beach is very close and beautiful. The owners clearly care about your comfort and the quality of your visit. We have never stayed in a rental with so many conveniences supplied. We hope to visit again.


Date of Stay:

The location and accommodations provided at Barefoot Bliss exceeded our expectations! A beautiful beach was just steps away, and the property was modern, clean, and inviting both inside and out. Carol, Pete, and of course Finn, were wonderful hosts and we look forward to our visit again next year!


Date of Stay:

This place is so beautiful. Carol is a great host we really felt taken care of. The apartment was newly renovated and it amenities suited our family. We tend to cook, the kitchen was comfortable and had what you needed to prepare a complete meal. We used the grill, paddle boards, and beach accessories. Our family had a great time and we will return!

Great Location

Date of Stay:

This was a last minute trip for my children and I before school. The unit had everything we could possibly imagine and then some. We greatly appreciated the gift basket! Easy bike into town, enjoyed the free yoga on the beach followed by a smoothie from the smoothie VW Bus! If you are here to find shark teeth you’ll find more than you expected!

Oasis on the Gulf of Mexico

Date of Stay:

Barefoot Bliss at Beachcomber of Manasota Key is a fantastic vacation destination. We stayed September and it was so relaxing! Everything we needed to relax and enjoy some much needed beach time was provided! It is an oasis that is a must see on the Gulf Coast! The beachside accommodations were newly updated and perfectly clean and neat! Literally steps from beach! We can't wait to go back!!

Englewood , FL , United States

Manasota Key is located south of Sarasota in the city of Englewood. Manasota Key is 7 miles long with four beaches to choose from. By foot, bicycle, or car Englewood Beach is just minutes away from Beachcomber’s Retreat. Englewood Beach has a boardwalk, covered picnic areas, and restrooms. Restaurants, bars, shopping, and waterfront dining locations are across the street from Englewood Beach. North of Englewood Beach is Blind Pass Beach. This is another great spot to search for shark teeth or to take a walk on the nature trail through sand dunes and mangroves. Farther north, Manasota Beach offers another spot to explore and is a popular snorkeling area. You are also within walking distance, half a mile, of Stump Pass Beach State Park another Manasota Key treasure. Stump Pass Beach covers the southern end of the key. Countless hours can be spent exploring the mile-long beach or hiking the trails. Visitors have an opportunity to encounter dolphins, manatees, loggerhead turtles, and egrets as you stroll the sandy beach.

You are also within walking distance of Lemon Bay which is the perfect spot to set off in a kayak to get a closer view of the inter-coastal wildlife along the mangrove fringed shoreline. Catch a glimpse of dolphins and manatees as you fish.

Manasota Key has some of the best fishing, boating, sailing, and kayaking available. You are also only minutes from golfing, shopping, grocery stores, and hospitals.
