Pristine Waters

On our little piece of southwest Florida, the wannaB inn is surrounded by pristine waters. Vacationers have been swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing and boating here all summer. Our waters are beautiful.


There has been extensive coverage on the presence of blue-green algae in some areas of Florida. Recent reports, news clips, and sound bites that make mention of blue-green algae are not always specific. The most important thing to know is that it is not present everywhere in Florida… and it is not present here.

The wannaB inn is situated on Manasota Key. This seven-mile long island is bordered by Lemon Bay on the east and by the Gulf of Mexico on the west. The bay and gulf waters and the passes that connect them are free from the offending blue-green algae.

We have had many guests inquire about the condition of the water here. Our waters are clean and there is absolutely no presence of the algae that has unfortunately plagued some specific areas of Florida.

Our Accommodations

Weston’s wannaB inn is an 80 unit resort that sits on five acres of land. Stump Pass is to the south of us, the Gulf of Mexico is to the west and Lemon Bay is on the east.

The 80 units are contained in seven distinct areas on the resort each with its own personality and flavor. Click on each of these to find the spot that is just right for you.


  • Seastar Motel & Villas is located in the southern-most part of the resort on the Gulf of Mexico adjacent to Stump Pass State Park.  There is a beautiful temperature controlled pool located between the Sea Star Villas and the Sea Star Motel.
  • The Nautilus is a 4 story building which features two-bedroom units facing the Gulf and one bedrooom and efficiency units facing the bay. This building is the newest and visitors love the spacious and airy accommodations.
  • Sand Dollar Circle is the building which features our whimsical brightly colored clock tower. There are 12 Gulf front units on three stories. 11 are one bedrooms and 1 is a two bedroom.  A beautiful pool on the east side is bordered by five "Old Floida style - cottage type units.
  • Conch Courtyard features a charming array of vintage cottage-style units that are all brightly painted.  This is a favorite of family reunion groups due to the variety of accommodations and the proximity to the cabana and beach.
  • Dolphin Retreat is located in the northern-most area of the resort.  There are three studios and two one bedroom units surrounding a courtyard and two two-bedroom and two one-bedroom units on the beach.  Although these are among the oldest units, they have been updated and are gentle reminders of simpler days.
  • Manatee Manor is located at the southern end of the resort on the bay side.  A duplex has two units - both two-bedrooms.  Unit 145 is a 3-bedroom 2-bath house with a beautiful view of Lemon Bay.  It features a large kitchen and an open dining and living area.  There is an adjoining 1-bedroom unit which can be opened up to the house if so desired.  Our two southern-most docks are located behind these buildings.
  • Catfish Cove is the location of the office, boat ramp and Dock 3.  There is also a simple two-bedroom unit which is often requested by our longtime guests.  We suspect it is the easy access to the dock for terrific night fishing that draws people to Unit 147.
