Pool and Spa heat is $120.00/wk.
Pool heaters in private homes are locked for your safety and controls must not be tampered with as they are monitored by the pool company. 86° F is the highest heat temperature setting which might not be reached at all times. Please note if cold days and nights occur, water temperatures will drop and may stay cooler longer. Pool heaters will not operate and will automatically shut down if outside temperatures get too cold. While we take every precaution to ensure that pools are heated as specified, weather conditions may affect the temperature of the pool. Nothing can be done about this issue. Outdoor spas are not hot tubs and require heat at the additional cost. The temperature of a spa is typically set at the same temperature as the pool. In the event of pool equipment malfunction during your stay, Duncan Real Estate will expedite repairs as quickly as possible. It may be necessary to close swimming pools for maintenance purposes. No refund or rent adjustment will be made for circumstances beyond our control, malfunctions or loss of use of equipment or amenities.
This property welcomes any day arrival for the months mid-August-January except holiday weeks.

"We travel quite a bit and we stay in a lot of different places. Manatee Cottage was absolutely perfect. The cleanliness of the house was extremely impressive. Whenever we go somewhere new, it always takes me a couple of days to relax and get comfortable. I always look around in the nooks and crannies and judge if the places are just getting wiped down or if they are actually scrubbed and sanitized. Manatee Cottage was just that. It was one of the cleanest spots that we have ever stayed. I was comfortable day one!!! Beyond the cleanliness, the house was well stocked and the backyard was absolutely GORGEOUS! The foliage was to die for and the pool was impeccable. We had a hard time getting the kids to leave the house and as we are sitting in Indiana, we wish the house was ours! Thank you so much for sharing it with our family and for taking pride in it. Owning a house like this on this gorgeous island is our life long dream. Thanks again. We WILL be back" VRBO guest May, 2021 "The pool was FANTASTIC. It made our whole vacation! Our kids had the best time. Thanks for being so responsive, we hope to come back soon!" Airbnb guest May, 2021 "So thrilled we found this place for our spring vacation. Absolutely loved it!" Airbnb guest April, 2021 "Manatee Cottage was exactly what my husband and I were looking for, in our first getaway since COVID hit the US. Quiet, private, the perfect size for us and our 4 year old child. Keyless check in. We arrived to a very clean home and had every question answered in the check-in materials. Never needed to contact the host during our stay. The cottage is a 5 min walk to the inward-facing coast of AMI which has smaller waves and less wind, and a 5 min drive to the other side facing the Gulf. We already miss it! We hope the cottage is available when we plan our spring trip next year :-)" Airbnb guest April, 2021 "Solid gold location We enjoyed our stay at Manatee Cottage. The home was the perfect size for myself, my husband, and our two kids ages 5 and 8. The master bedroom has a super comfortable king sized bed and the kids slept well and enjoyed the bunk beds. The couch in the living room, while spacious, was not very comfortable to sit on but we didn’t spend much time indoors anyway. We would have appreciated having some basic items in the kitchen like salt & pepper, dish soap, extra garbage bags, other rentals I have stayed in have offered things like this which is very helpful. The pool area is fabulous. The yard and pool space is maximized very well...plenty of place for the kids to play and swim along with lots of space for the grownups to layout on the lounge chairs. There is plenty of morning and afternoon sun to lay out and soak in some vitamin D! The many trees surrounding the backyard offer just the right amount of shade and privacy. For grocery shopping, there is a Publix which offers grocery delivery through instacart. This was an awesome option. I hate grocery shopping on vacation and it was so easy to use the app to order supplies ahead of time. We arrived around 6pm and I was able to schedule our groceries to be delivered around 8pm the day we arrived which was great to have everything we needed when we woke up in the morning. The best part of this home is absolutely the location. Walking distance to Pine Ave where you can shop and find many options to eat. Highly recommend Poppos Taqueria, the Waterfront restaurant, and the Sandbar. Pizza social is also a great option. You can also walk to Bayfront park which has a small playground and a nice quiet beach on the bay side. For a change of scenery you can also walk to the gulf side beach. The newly built city pier is great to walk to and has some tasty food at the grill. Both the city pier and the rod & reel pier (also in walking distance) offer some fun places to go fishing. Both piers have rentals for rods and bait to purchase. Overall we would stay here again, we had a fantastic time enjoying Anna Maria and Manatee C
