Island House is your home away from home for pure relaxation, refreshment and rejuvenation. From sun-up to well past sundown; from glowing morning skies to saturated ocean sunsets and sparkling starry nights, Island House is your special place to let all stresses fly away. Sipping morning coffee or tea on the beach deck while drinking in views of the crystal blue waters of the Gulf….strolling along miles of pristine white sands on Manasota Key….watching playful dolphins, exotic birds and endangered turtles….basking in the sun….playing in the waves…what quiet moments and pleasant memories await!
Directly on the beach facing the Gulf of Mexico, Island House is a privately owned vacation rental of six fully furnished apartments–three upstairs and three on the ground floor. All our units are non-smoking (smoking is allowed is designated areas outdoors only). All units have full kitchens including stove, oven, full-sized refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, dishes, cookware and utensils. A laundry room is available for guest use inside the building and a barbecue grill is available outside.
Island House has a new owner as of 2015. Guests are already enjoying fresh new linens, new lounge chairs on the deck and a brand new propane grill. More updates, renovations and improvements are in store. Marilyn, our very capable and personable manager, is nearby and available to make your stay the best ever!
In late 2016, the Island House will be the place to be for the Offshore Powerboat Association World Championships, held during Englewood Beach WaterFest, November 18-20, 2016. Feel the power of the offshore monster boats as they make the turn directly in front of Island House. Be sure to make your reservation early!
