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!
