Manasota Key condo description

WE HAVE BEEN TOLD BY SEVERAL GUESTS THAT THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST UNITS AT BAREFOOT BEACH!!!
Because we enjoy our condo as often as we can ourslves, we have equipped it to pamper ourselves - please enjoy the many upgrades that are not commonly found in many typical 'rental' units.

This Manasota Key condominium is a direct beach front luxury unit with panoramic views of the Gulf and boasts the most spectacular sunsets you will ever see. Barefoot Beach construction was completed in late 2005. Enjoy staying in one of Manasota Key's newest luxury condos. Barefoot Beach has four floors and is one of the tallest structures on this paradise of an island. This lovely second floor condo has a large screened lanai with 180 degee panoramic view, directly overlooking the beach and Gulf! Step into the elevator and in less than a minute you will be on the beach!

Our Barefoot Beach condo has ceramic tile floors throughout and granite countertops in the kitchen. Master bath has a large soaking tub, large glass walled shower and separate double sinks adjoining the oversized Master 'Mermaid' Suite with sliding glass door access to the lanai.

The large screened lanai has lounge chairs and a bistro table so you can enjoy sunset dinners in luxury!

The condo is tastefully decorated with a blend of comfortable modern and carefully selected vintage furniture accented with nostalgic Florida tropical art.

COMPLIMENTARY WIRELESS, LONG DISTANCE CALLING and EXTENSIVE CABLE PACKAGE with DVR/DVD on the 52' screen in the living room. You will find the condo well connected and equipped with top-end media availability. Super high speed wireless Internet service is included. Sit on the large lanai enjoying a panoramic view of the gulf and beach while chatting up your friends or family with the free domestic long distance calling. There are 4 flat screen TV's; TV's (huge, large medium and small). We have an extensive cable TV package, including music and movie channels and DVR in living room.

The Condo is completely stocked with linens and towels and plenty of beach towels (specially marked) so just bring your clothes and personal items. The modern kitchen is fully equipped with just about everything one would need: a Kitchenaid food processor, toaster oven, dishwasher, microwave, disposal, coffee-maker, electric can opener, and side by side refrigerator complete with ice and filtered water dispenser. There is also a full size washer & dryer, iron, steamer & ironing board and drying racks for your convenience.

There are beach and lounge chairs, beach towels, toys, umbrellas and even noodle floats in the storage cage conveniently located close to the beach in the garage(just as you step off the elevator) for your use. A heated pool is also on the premisis. There is one reserved covered parking space for this condo.

This condo and complex has a strict non-smoking policy (unit as well as lanai), we rent only to non-smoking guests. Unfortunately the condo rules do not allow pets.


The natural beach is known to offer some of the clearest waters, best shelling and shark teeth hunting on the Gulf coast. Barefoot Beach offers quiet solitude or, if you prefer, abundant amenities and activities just steps from the door. Step off the elevator and within a minute you will be on the beach ready to walk, swim, surf, fish, sunbathe, read, nap and enjoy spectacular sunsets! Watch for dolphins swimming in the surf!

Manasota Key is a natural haven and breeding ground for many wildlife species. Within a short walk you can explore Stump Pass State Park and its wildlife sanctuary, hiking trails and excellent game fishing.

Nearby attractions also include historic sites, museums, art galleries, antiquing, and the Englewood performing arts. Your choices for dining include anything from waterfront, fresh seafood, and ethnic restaurants to cappuccino cafes.

Manasota Key is in close proximity to several airports including Punta Gorda, Sarasota, Clearwater-St. Pete, Tampa and Fort Myers airports with international access.

                  Location

                  Barefoot Beach is a small private complex with only 14 luxury units. The beach is very private since only 14 units share the beachfront (compared to similar size beaches with 40+ units).

                  Would consider trading time at this condo for a high end Black Forest Clock - cuckoo - musical - automated - trumpeter - flute - organ will all be considered.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: We are Debby and Danny Toth from Bloomington, Indiana. We have been enjoying the Manasota Key and Englewood area for since 1985 - so much so, that we purchased this lovely condo in 2009. Dan is an antiques dealer, and we have tastefully decorated the condo with high quality modern and vintage 'Floridiana' finds. We would love to share this condo with others who enjoy direct beach front property with a taste of vintage Florida furnishings. We hope that you enjoy your stay!!

                  Why the Owner Chose Manasota Key:
                  Our family has been coming to Englewood since the early 1970s. When time came to look for a vacation place of our own, we searched gulf front properties from Sarasota to Placida but ultimately found everything we wanted just a mile from the original family vaction home! We enjoy the small, natural island feel of Manasota Key. The Key is an amazingly peaceful, uncomplicated, accessible island with much to offer.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  We can hardly tear ourselves away from the marvelous view, the beauty of the beach and the amazing restful sounds of the waves. When we are not at the condo ourselves, we count the days till our next visit. This is a fantastic condo!
