Having been coming here for 25 years. A unique place with some cottages right on the ocean where you can fall asleep to the sound of the waves. It does not get any better than this. The best endorsement is the number of repeat visitors.

We first stayed at one of the smaller cottages at Pelican Shores 30 years ago and never forgot the peace, beauty, and breezes. We are heading back next year for our fourth year in a row to Cottage 13 which offers all of this and room to have friends or family come visit as well. This rustic, private and spacious... More

I wish to recommend Pelican Shore Cottages. We spent a wonderful two months there 2014/2015. They offer rustic cottages that are liberally spaced to provide tranquility and privacy not normally found at beach locations. Also, they provide panoramic views from their screened porch of the Gulf of Mexico. Although these cottages were built around 1951 they are clean and for... More

These wooden cottages by the waterfront, on a bluff with great views of the sunset, were evidently once PT barracks, and were brought to Manasota Key after the war. Despite their age, they are really comfortable and keep you close to nature. We stayed in #2 just back from the bluff, and it was nicely kept up with wi-fi, a... More

Imagine your own little cottage, just a few yards from the ocean where you can hear the surf all night long. Simple, older, quiet, and all yours. Check their website, look at their photos. We stayed in cottage #12, not right on the ocean, but back just a bit. Not photo perfect, but what we wanted. If you want swanky,... More

I won this cottage in a silent auction and my husband and I planned a week of Tarpon fishing with friends. We knew the cottage was not one of the cottages on the beach. The cottage was disappointing in many ways. It was full of roach, termite, and something larger, (rat?) droppings in the kitchen/dining area. We slept with the... More

This is truly "old Florida"! Cottages were built after WWII and are situated right on the top of the water. My family has been coming here since the 1950s and my siblings and I all honeymooned here! The beach is not extensive but to be able to sit on the bluff (the view from the cottages themselves is the same)... More
