Awesome Stay

Date of Stay:

The location is Perfect, I wish I could give 100 stars for this rental, it was the perfect place for our stay. I really liked the attention that they put in to putting a nice bottle of wine in the fridge, some beers, some bottled waters, small sodas in the fridge for your arrival & the great welcome basket with snacks as well as the K- cups for coffee. This unit was incredible, the most breathtaking views from the back door, you can hear the waves from just sitting in the Living Room & being in the kitchen area. We loved the private beach area & we also liked the shared grill & all extra amenities too. The property manager Carol was very communicative for everything & even reached out to ask if we were ok, I thought that was very thoughtful, She gets my vote as the Best Property Manager. We look forward to booking this rental again many more times in the near future.

Perfect Beach Getaway!

Date of Stay:

This was the best experience we have ever had with a rental property! The accommodations were even better than the description and the owners go to extreme measures to make sure their guests have a relaxing, fun-filled stay. The cottages are private and as advertised, are right on the beach. We absolutely loved our stay and plan to return with the entire family.

The Perfect Spot!

Date of Stay:

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 Relaxing Stay At The Beach

Date of Stay:

Nice place right on the beach with beautiful sunsets! Very clean with a nice welcome basket. We had dolphins swim around our kayaks. It was easy to communicate with Carol to answer any questions.

Best location, Great experience

Date of Stay:

Property even better than described. Open the door, listen to the waves. Steps to the beach. Bountiful shark teeth and a nice conch symphony from neighbors at sunset. Everything you need. Clean and comfortable.


Date of Stay:

This property has everything. The location is PERFECT and the accommodations are so comfortable and clean. Thank you so much! We will be booking again for next year.

Simply Beautiful

Date of Stay:

First rate communication with the host. Condo was exactly how it was depicted in the photographs and explanation. We walked in and saw a comfortable and clean place and best of all lots of ocean right outside the glass doors. Plenty of amenities - we didn't need a thing, all provided. Location was great, a quiet beach, local restaurants were great and people in other condos were kind and quiet. Already checking dates to book for next year. Host, condo and location were excellent.

Long Weekend Away

Date of Stay:

This property was as advertised. Directly on the beach with beautiful views of the ocean. The unit itself was compact but very clean and well laid out. Everything looked new including the furniture, the bed linens, the floors and even the appliances. It was also very well equipped with everything that you would need. I’m sure we will be back.

Englewood , Florida , 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 our Beachcomber’s Retreat. Englewood Beach has a boardwalk, covered picnic areas, playground, basketball courts, 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 shelling, shark tooth hunting, fishing, boating, sailing, and kayaking available. You are also only minutes from golfing, shopping, grocery stores, and hospitals.
