Under the Banyan Trees - the most relaxing vacation ever!!

Bedrooms 3
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 7 - 14 nights


About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom with breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico

What a beautiful spot on the Gulf of Mexico known as Banyan Bluff - a small, secluded condo complex that you can't even see from the road. And what really makes it special is that it's you're close enough to shops, restaurants, golfing, etc. so that you don't feel isolated from the rest of the world.

You will not want for anything in this gulf front townhouse. It is a beautifully furnished, updated, end-unit with all the amenities to make your vacation perfect. The living room is comfortably and tastefully furnished, and includes a large flat-screen TV. From the large glass wall you can enjoy beautiful sunsets, or open up the sliding doors to the main floor deck with a patio set, and have your morning coffee or an evening meal. The entry level has a laundry room with a full-size washer & dryer.

Above is a well-stocked kitchen with updated appliances, including a dishwasher and microwave. Conveniently located next to the kitchen is the dining area. Also on this level are the two guest bedrooms, one with a queen bed, the other with 2 twin beds, and a full bathroom with a shower.

The top floor level is reserved for the master suite - it includes a king-size bed, a flat-screen TV, a full bathroom with a tub/shower combination, walk-in closet, and a large balcony with a gorgeous view of the Gulf of Mexico.

Amenities are the free WiFi internet, cable TV and 2 new, large flat-screen TV's. There are 2 decks, one off the living room, and one off the master bedroom; each overlooks the peaceful, natural florida landscape and the Gulf of Mexico. These decks are angled providing privacy from each unit.

Outside is also a semi-private sundeck with access to the Gulf of Mexico. Take the stairs down to the beach and you can swim in the calm blue waters or look for sand dollars, all kinds of sea shell, and even fossilized shark's teeth. We hope you'll enjoy our condo as much as we do. The Gulf of Mexico experiences highs and lows depending on the season, storms, tides, etc. While there are public beaches within 5 minutes to the north and south of the condo, the private beach may not be as shown in the photos. If a more private beach is important to you, please inquire with regard to the status of the beach when booking.

Lovely House

  • 5 of 5

My sister and her family rented the house next door, and we rented this three bedroom unit. This was a very comfortable rental, with plenty of space, tons of dishes and pots and pans to cook our Thanksgiving dinner. I did bring my own knives (most rentals have dull steel). The bed was very comfy (wanted to take it home). The view is just as pictured.

Beautiful and peaceful!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Banyan Bluff very much. The condo was clean and equipped with anything you could need. Although there is a permanent resident next door and another unit was rented, we felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. Unfortunately, during our stay, Manasota Key was experiencing Red Tide, so we were not able to enjoy the beach for part of the week. The beach is not as pictured either, which was disappointing. There was no sand. The steps led straight down to the water. We made up for the lack of beach by floating on tubes and rafts. Overall our stay was very relaxing and enjoyable.

Beautiful location that is hidden from road and private. Very comfortable accommodations. Well stocked kitchen and unit. AC stopped working and Gulf Realty got repair man out there quickly on a Sat. night. Only 2 problems - the beach is for all intents and purposes gone and the BBQ grill was disgusting and unusable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. The beach does come and go. There was a beach when I was last there in April but until the County makes the decision to reconstitute the beach (and they will in the medium term), we are at the mercy of the tides. Sadly the bbq had not been cleaned before your arrival. The bbq has since been cleaned and is in workable condition. Plans are to replace the bbq in the fall, 2018.

Enjoyed our stay! Just wish there was a beach at the rental, the water was up on the rocks all time.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay , the house was very nice and we'll equipped with everything we needed. The view was great,we saw dauphins and manatee almost every day. If only there was a beach to walk out on from the rental . It was just a few miles in either direction to a nice beach.

Little Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The sound of the waves at night, the beautiful vistas from all of the decks, the birds and squirrels, and the semi-private beach accessible by a stair. It's really quiet and laid back and a great way to switch off and be on vacation. Also, the house is very nicely furnished, it has a wonderful homey touch to it and the kitchen is the best equipped kitchen we've ever seen in a rental place! Sunsets are amazing and on our last evening we even saw a school of dolphins pass by. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for some peace and quiet and appreciating this direct access to the sea.

Paradise in Florida

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Loved the view. Steps away from the ocean. The condo was very comfortable and clean. We loved being able to step out the back door and be right on the ocean on our own private beach (with only three other condos). We loved the group of palm trees in the back which provided shade and an interesting area to walk through to the beach. Sunsets were beautiful and viewable from the living room, master bedroom, or by just stepping out on the deck. It was nice having a covered parking space for two vehicles plus room for more for guests. The layout of the condo was very nice. Working with Gulf Realty was easy and they were very accommodating. We had no issues. We truly enjoyed staying here and would definitely come back. Thank you for sharing your condo with us.
