Relax, rejuvenate, and reconnect!
"Split eleven wonderful days between 2 groups - my sister and 3 nieces and then my 3 sisters-in-law. What great memories we made! I've stayed in other beach front dwellings on both east and west coast of FL - This was by far the absolute best! It's amazing how such a gorgeously decorated condo could be so very comfortable at the same time. Everyone - from my 8 year old great-niece to my eldest sister-in-law (83 yo) – had the most delightful time! Condo is the perfect backdrop to enjoy your loved ones!
How relaxed we were! After a night in the most comfortable beds ever found in a rental, we’d gather one by one with coffee or tea on the lanai to enjoy the gulf front view. Then we'd walk along the beach looking for shells followed by cooling off in the pool. My sisters-in-law and I were thrilled to witness the Turtle Patrol setting boundaries around a new turtle nest (you could see the flipper tracks coming in from the water), as well as the Patrol assisting as necessary once a nest of eggs had hatched. (You have to get up early for this, but GREAT fun!)
We'd do a little souvenir shopping and riding about during the midday. The Beach Rd. Boutique is definitely worth a visit and there are super discoveries at the local Goodwill - Found glass bowls just right for pretty shells from the beach. Late afternoons were perfect for another trip to the beach and/or pool.
Perfect for homemade meals – kitchen is well equipped for food preparation! One night my nieces made delicious fish tacos using locally purchased shrimp and hogfish (never had it before) and black beans and rice. When my sisters-in-law came we enjoyed homemade Cuban sandwiches as good as any you'd buy in the Tampa area. My eldest sister-in-law made her family famous pasta salad - a tradition at our annual Girls' Getaway. In between we ate out - Don't miss the lobster bisque at Gulf View Bar and Grill! Be sure to try Zeke’s in historic Olde Englewood for their Crayfish Potato Nachos, and definitely don’t overlook Landy’s full menu with Seafood, Italian, and Greek specialties.
We were so sad to leave, but have made plans to return next year. Thank you, Jean, for what must be the easiest check-in on the face of the earth! Most especially, Debby, I thank you for making your exquisite home available for others to enjoy!"

Awesome place for a getaway- beach and bay are very quiet and peaceful!
"What a wonderful experience we had staying here. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. A short walk to the beach or bay. We brought our kayaks and fishing poles! Karen and Jim were great, gave us a lot of information about places to eat as well as about the beach or bay. We loved chatting with them. The beach was so quiet-there was never more than 5 others on the beach with us! The pool was nice and relaxing- the kids enjoyed it! A great time was had by all- we will definitely be back soon! Thanks for sharing your "little slice of heaven" with us, Karen and Jim!"

"My family and I have been spending time on Manasota Key for many years and have rented many different VRBO properties. This house was by far the loveliest we have rented. It is laid out very well and has fantastic views of the beach & ocean, even though it is not directly on the beach. Just a few feet away from the beach access though. There are alot of steps but after a few days they were not an issue...hopefully we all built some leg muscle!! I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a beach vacation with all of the amenities. Toys, chairs, umbrella, outdoor shower all add to the value of this home! Thanks for sharing your home!"
