Manasota Key condo description

The unit is a second floor 2 bedroom condo located in a very quiet, well maintained, beautifully landscaped, 30 unit condo complex in Englewood Beach. Directly on Manasota Key in the Gulf of Mexico, the complex comes with an experienced on-site manager available for your every need.

On your vacation you will see dolphins, manatee, spectacular sunsets, and hear the calming sounds of the Gulf of Mexico on the private condo beach just steps from the door.

If you want to people watch, Englewood beach and park is a 5 minute walk or 0.2 miles away. Nature lovers will enjoy Stump
Pass state park & beach which is only 1.5 miles away. This is our family favourite beach and the reason we purchased on Manasota Key. Stump Pass is situated on the southern most 1.2 miles of the key and features a long hiking trail through the scrub and a quiet undeveloped beach. With very limited parking available you are guaranteed the most private, secluded, public beach experience in south central florida.

Too much of the beach? Do what we do and take a break and relax by the pool or on the dock just outside the unit overlooking Lemon Bay, the intercoastal waterway. High speed 15 mbs intenet access extends well outside the unit so you can get caught up on emails or surf the web while at the pool.

Do you like to fish? If you don't want to charter a deep sea excusion at one of the loacal marinas, just relax and fish off the private beach or bayside dock. It's is all just a few steps away on private grounds.

There are also a number of great restaurants, bars and shops all within a 5-10 minute walk. Many of these establishments feature live music and are also frequented by the locals which speaks to the quality of food and entertainment you can expect. Being within walking distance of restaurants, beaches, the pool and dock means you will go days without getting into your car for that relaxing resort type atmosphere.

Englewood is located on the Gulf of Mexico between
Sarasota and Ft. Myers. Easily accessible from Tampa (85 miles), Sarasota (42 miles), Punta Gorda (30 miles) and Ft. Myers (43 miles) airports. With easy access to so many airports and Interstate I-75 you will have many travel options available.

Our unit includes a fully equipped kitchen with brand new dish and glassware, dining room, and spacious living room. Bedrooms consist of a king bed (serta perfect sleeper -the only official mattress of the national sleep foundation engineered to help solve 5 common sleep problems) in master, 2 twin beds in spare bedroom, and a queen sleeper sofa in living room. All beds feature brand new pillows, linens and comforters.

Our goal is not to cut corners like other units you've been to. The towels, cutlery and place settings are all fresh and newly purchased specifically for the unit vs. hand-me-downs brought from home. We also set ourselves apart by offering netflix, a 50' led smart tv, unlimited calls to USA and Canada as well as up to 15 mbps internet speed and the latest 802.11ac wireless technology ensuring videos play and download uninterrupted. The king bed was purchased in January 2014 and the mattress is a consumers reports top pick serta - perfect sleeper mattress. This demonstrates our aim to set ourselves apart without cutting corners.

                      Englewood Beach is a quaint community with quiet streets and a number of outstanding restaurants and friendly bars which often feature live music, all within walking distance.

                      Local artists showcase their work in the shops on Dearborn St. while our bayside pool or gulf side private beach provide quiet areas to enjoy relaxing, BBQing, and picking up an abundent supply of sea shells and shark teeth!

                      You can also walk (0.3 miles) to Englewood Beach/Park or 1.5 miles to the Stump Pass State Park which features over 1.2 miles of quiet undeveloped key, beach and trails. The key also features two additional puplic beaches within 9 miles so you can try a new beach every day of the week.

                      A short car ride off the key provides the typical array of additional restaurants, supermarkets (e.g. Walmart, Target), bookstores and attractions.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About the owner: My family and I are from the greater Toronto area and I've vacationed in this area of Florida a few times each year since I was a child. I spent much of my childhood on all the Manasota Key beaches where I created some of my best memories. We just recently purchased the condo so our 3 children might also have fond memories of Manasota Key and we would like to extend this wish to you and your family as well.

                      Why the Owner Chose Manasota Key:
                      We chose this property as it is on the Key with private beach and bay access which is difficult to find and provides us with more to do and see without even leaving the property. Englewood Beach is still one of the quieter less developed Keys situated between Sarasota and Ft Meyers and makes for a relaxing vacation.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      Being on the key with a private beach means you don't have to leave your rental unit early in the AM to get a spot on the beach, or pack up and leave to head home for dinner. Taking a cup of coffee out on the beach and shark tooth hunting before everyone else arrives or being the last to leave after sunset is a breeze! In under 3 minutes you can walk and change your scenery from beach to pool or bayside dock making this a unique vacation. Situated within close proximity of 4 international airports means you can always find the best rate on air travel. Englewood is also close to I-75 for those of us that prefer to drive to our vacation destination.
