This is the fourth year in a row staying at Manasota. If you are looking for a place to relax with your family, hang out at the beach, fish, snorkel and watch beautiful sunsets without a crowd, then this is your place. The staff is accomodating and the houses are charming. We have stayed in the lovebird, the Sanderling, the Royal Turn and the IBIS (the best). All are great but the Ibis is the best for the money as it is a 2/2 with a screen porch and a private swimming pool overlooking the ocean. You can get a place for 12 or a place for two. We have never had seen more than ten people on the property in four years during summer. It has oak canopy trails, swimming pool, basketball court, tennis court and great fishing all with no crowds. It's a throw back to old Florida. I would highly recommend it for couple or families with any age children. Some cottages/ houses have cable but most don't. The snook fishing on the beach can be great depending on when you go. There are plenty of restaurants within driving distance. It can be a bit pricey after you add the resort taxes, etc.. but that is how they all are. You get what you pay for on this one!!
