Nestled off the coast of Englewood is a barrier island untouched by high-rises and high ways. A single two-lane road circumnavigates this eclectically inhabited island, rich with quaint beach cottages scattered amongst extravagant, private estates on lush one-acre lots. Manasota Key offers covetable “gulf to bay” properties, with alluring water views from both sides of the gorgeous residences. With an abundance of crystal-clue Gulf waters, the island and its inhabitants have an unmistakable sense of tropical luxury in daily life. Waterfront dining with fresh coastal cuisine is just around the corner make quiet evenings out possible without straying off of the beach. There are far more private palm tree-shaded spots on the beach than residents so finding a place to pull up a beach chair is always effortless.
