Manasota Key Vacation Rentals – Research for Members

Please note: I have not been inside any of the properties on this list, therefore they are not recommendations per say, but suggestions of what is available. The list below are properties that caught my eye or had what you call “curb appeal”. The properties here are nothing fancy. Most of the properties available on Manasota Key are older cottages, homes, mom & pop hotels, or condo complexes. There are more properties than what is on this list, however, I chose properties that met a certain criteria of: location to the beach, condition of the property from street view, overall decent reviews, and it is in the average price range. I want to stress again that I have not personally been inside or have stayed in any of these properties so I encourage you to please do your own research. Everyone’s expectations are different so please use this list only as a guide to get started.

There are 7 different properties in the group of Wanna B Inn, some with Ocean Front Gulf views, some on Lemon Bay and some views are of Stump Pass. 80 units all together. 2 pools shared between the 7 properties. Pets are only welcome at some of the properties. Not all of the properties are suited for people traveling with disabilities. 2 night minimum stay. September through December rates are the lowest. Weekend rates are higher. Price ranges from $135 for weekday efficiency cottages to $405 per night for 3 bedroom/2 bath. Prices range depends on time of year and day of the week. There are discounts for weekly and monthly stays. They also run promotion specials. Rates are clear by building and unit on the website link provided above. Older property with updates – I think it is one of the Best locations on the key. Colorful buildings. Website is pretty user friendly and is informative. I want to repeat that not all units are set up for the disabled and pets are only allowed in certain properties. Call before you book to make sure you are booking what the right unit to suit your needs. In checking the reviews I found them to be mixed. Some great reviews, some reviews stating that their stay was fine but buildings in need of repair and a couple of very bad reviews of disrepair and BUGS.
