Awesome beach paradise

Date of Stay:

This house was adorable! We were so close to the beach and the property had everything you could need, bicycles, kayaks, beach chairs, shell finders, boogie boards, noodles and much more. We had so much fun on the island. From riding bikes around town, to kayaking with dolphins and manatees. This vacation was beyond everything we could have hoped for! We will definatley be coming back soon!

Great getaway to Manasota Key

Date of Stay:

This is the perfect location only steps to the beach ! We loved the outdoor shower & all the sitting areas . The amenities are awesome & you can ride bikes all over town, kayak or paddleboard . The place is stocked with everything & super clean . We will be back & definitely recommend Surf's Up !

Great Property

Date of Stay:

Fantastic Place and Service! Carol's Surf's Up was much better than ever expected, clean, super close to beach and restaurants, over the top amenities-from well stocked kitchen and bathrooms to all of the beach toys ready to use and a fantastic outdoor area, cannot be beat. Even had cold beer and wine in the refrigerator when we arrived!! Called to let us know it was ready for early check in and let us have late check out, could not have asked for more. I have used a lot of Air B&B's and VRBO's and this was one of the best yet.

Perfect for an Active Vacation

Date of Stay:

Look out Martha Stewart... Carole has her A-Game on when it comes to decorating the perfect getaway. Wow. What a great place. And she's thought of everything... Just bring some clothes and grab some groceries in town. Bikes, paddle boards, kayaks, beach towels and umbrellas. And our personal favorite - everything you need to comb the beach for shells and shark teeth, build sand castles and enjoy the beautiful sunshine. We took great advantage of the beach cruisers, riding them all over the island. Not only were the accommodations beautiful but it was just a few yards from the beach, which was clean and well taken care of with tons of turtle nests, loads of seashells and warm turquoise waters. It definitely wasn't over crowded either! The place was beautiful and had every thing we needed. There's some seriously delicious food in Manasota Key. The shrimp burgers at the local tiki bar were worth fighting for. It's perfect for all ages but without all the tourist traffic. 5 STARS EASILY!!

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.
