So glad you enjoyed your stay - and we hope you'll come back again !
Pristine and peaceful! Plan on coming back!
The owners maintain an absolutely stunning residence. It offers peace and privacy and a serene backyard setting complete with a beautiful pool and hot tub. The inside is luxurious and wonderfully furnished. All the necessities one would need. Additionally the location is sublime. A nearby beach within walking distance with mostly local residents. Nearby towns only mikes away for dining and entertainment. The utmost pristine place to have a vacation I would definitely revisit.

The perfect vacation home!
My wife and I just recently rented this beautiful home. We went there with our son and his family. It was just a few minutes drive to beautiful Manasota Beach, and a short trip to Englewood and many fine restaurants. The house itself is very roomy with two areas to gather in, and such a lovely kitchen! Everything you need to cook a meal.The best part for us was the pool and hot tub! And the view from the covered eating area was breathtaking....even a resident gopher tortoise!We loved the convenience of everything...and so homey! The beds were super comfy, too! We will go back there soon!The Rogers/Mazza family....

Beautiful Home/ Will stay again
Robert is amazing!! The house and amenities are perfect for family vacations. Everything was very clean! We had 1 issue and that was the AC, the house was very warm the majority of our stay. However, Robert did everything in his power to get the situation corrected. He was awesome to work with and never sounded like I was bothering him with all my many texts and calls. I will absolutely be back!!!

What a great house! - Everything was perfect!Nicely furnished - everything seemed new. The pool / spa heat was controlled via a tablet - they even had Bluetooth speaking on the Lanai which was unexpected, but used quite a bit :)The Kitchen was equipped with everything we needed (Even a Blender), There were SmartTV's where you needed them, and everything worked as you would expect.Thank you - we WILL be back! -Dan & KathyThe hosts were available in the event we had to ask questions.We truly enjoyed our stay

Dan/ Kathy, so glad you enjoyed our Florida home. Thank you for visiting!
Wonderful super clean home with perfect pool/hot tub️️️️️
This home and location were perfect to be 1 mile from Manasota Beach and convent to restaurants and shopping. Very private and peaceful with the joy of watching wildlife from the screened in pool/lanai area. We loved the pool and hot tub and how easy to operate. We totally enjoyed the ability to swim laps and then relax in hot tub. The home was very clean and comfortable and newly renovated. It was also great having sofa recliners to allow feet up for resting and watching TV after a day at the beach. Robert and Lisa (the owners) were prompt and very accommodating with their communications and ensuring all was good. Beach chairs and umbrella available for your beach stay along with fishing poles, Cannot say enough how impressed and happy we were with the pool and lanai area and how much we enjoyed our stay! We will definitely be booking with Robert and Lisa again for our Venice vacay next year! We hated to leave. The house is perfect for families or couples and beds are also very comfy. Thank you Robert and Lisa for allowing us to enjoy your home! 5 ️ ️️️️

The BEST vacation home!!
The quiet, private neighborhood with the large yards and tree lined streets was the first clue that the home and setting would be very pleasant and comfortable. From the moment that we pulled into the driveway we felt comfortable. The home is situated at the end of a no-thru traffic street so, was very quiet and private. The kitchen, great room and bedrooms all very spacious, comfortable and tastefully decorated. The pool and hot tub were an absolute bonus for us and we enjoyed using them every day. Loved Tony the tortoise! We really liked being so close to Manasota Beach...which is like a hidden treasure. Not over-crowded but more family oriented. We found awesome shells and sharks teeth and saw the best sunsets there. The farmers market was much bigger and nicer than I expected. Loved Sharky's restaurant and shopping in nearby Venice We rented a pontoon for a day which was an awesome adventure (minutes away in Engelwood - as noted in the guest book). We saw many dolphins and a manatee. Also went hiking at the nearby Manasota Scrub Preserve and saw tortoises and even an armadillo! Really liked the Sand Bar Tiki for the food and live entertainment. This is a great vacation home that we hope to re-visit!

We are Thrilled that you enjoyed our home! Glad you found some of our suggestions in the guest book helpful. I've still yet to see a Manatee "in the wild" so I'm super jealous ;) Hope you'll come back for another stay and adventure!
Beautifully appointed, peaceful house so close to the beach.
We truly enjoyed our peaceful stay, and just a very short drive or walk to the beach! The screened-in pool/patio area were just what we needed to relax in the sun. Everything was included, we didn't need to bring much more than our clothes. Also loved the layout of the house - bedrooms were on opposite sides of the house with a large kitchen and living room in between. (Great for families.) Beds were comfortable. We definitely plan on staying here again!!

Glad you enjoyed your stay at Casa Maria. Nice to know you met Tony, our resident Gopher Tortoise.
We loved being so close to the beach.
The home was gorgeous and the location is amazing - the beach is less than a mile away! This is a great family-friendly home with a stunning pool and wonderful hot tub. Robert (the owner) even let our tiny dog stay. We'll visit again!
