Amazing Place to Stay!

We only stayed at this property for 2 nights but it was such a great place to stay. It was minutes to walk to the beach and had all of the amenities needed to play at the beach for the day which was an absolute plus! Will absolutely stay here again!

Every Day Was Perfect

Date of Stay:

Osprey retreat was the best home base for our week at Manasota Key! It was beautiful, comfortable, and clean. A great place to start every day, come back to when we needed a break from activity, and sleep in at night. We grilled great meals and enjoyed every minute. Thank you so much!!!:)

What A Place!!!!

Date of Stay:

We stayed in the Beachcomber Osprey and it didn't dissappoint. Clean, quiet, and oh so pretty. We highly recommend this property!!!

Osprey Retreat was a Real Treat

Date of Stay:

Carol & Pete's Manasota Key property is by far the nicest VRBO we have ever stayed in. Not only is it meticulously clean and well maintained, it is artfully designed and decorated. The kitchen is generously equipped with dishes, utensils, and high end appliances. They have thought of everything for guests' comfort and convenience. Comfortable beds feature lovely fresh linens. Laundry facility is amazing. Any beach toy you could imagine. Welcome snack basket is great for midnight snacking as well as the beverages in the fridge. The home is conveniently located to the beach as well as restaurants. Our 3 night stay was a dream, but way too short. We will be back. Carol was responsive and easy to work with. They have certainly raised the bar for all future VRBO's that we will stay at. #lovemanasotakey

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.
