The island of Manasota Key is a contrast to the other major tourist destinations in Florida. Unlike other places that boast nonstop party scenes, this area is relaxed and quiet, allowing travelers and locals alike to soothe their bodies and minds away from the noise and confusion of more fast-paced cities. There are four beaches that people can choose from in Manasota Key: Manasota Beach, which features a long stretch of sandy beaches; Blind Pass Beach, which is at an isolated location and features plenty of wildlife; Englewood Beach, which comes with rental services for a variety of beach equipment and games so you don’t have to lug these around; and Stump Pass Beach State Park, which features fantastic spots for snorkeling, sunbathing and picnicking. Take your pick from these vacation rentals by the beach in Manasota Key, Florida, and give yourself the opportunity to be close to the central attractions of the island.
Water lovers will love this destination. This condo unit, which fits four, is just a few steps away from the beach. It comes with a dock where you can secure your boat for free. This rental is a dream vacation home if water relaxes you, because of the views you can enjoy from here. The property has a lanai where you can rest and enjoy the sights of manatees, seagulls, and dolphins. Restaurants and the various entertainment options offered by Manasota Key are all within walking distance from here.
