About Bob Stanley

I was an original owner at Tamarind Gulf and Bay when it opened in 1981. In 1992 I bought the larger 2 story unit I own now and sold the original 1 bedroom unit. I was raised in Royal Oak, Michigan and graduated from Michigan State University. I lived in the Toronto, Ontario, Canada area for 35 years, and now reside in Fenton, Michigan.

Bob Stanley purchased this condo in 1992

Why Bob Stanley chose Englewood

My family had been going to Manasota Key for several years and I decided to get my own place on the beach. I love the location as it's walking distance to shopping and restaurants, but far enought away from the public beach that our beach is very private. We also have a beautiful pool and boat docks that are free for owners and renters to use.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks again, everything was wonderful. Definitely our new spot on the west coast!

Fantastic condo and location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this condo and would highly recommend it! Location is perfect...just steps from the beach! We enjoyed hours of playing in the surf and finding a plethora of seashells, sand dollars (on the nearby sand bar), and sharks teeth. It was so nice not having to pack a car with sandy things at the end of the day. (Just a note, I think this complex has the nicest beachside shower I've ever used!) But if you tire of the sand, the pool is beautifully maintained and located right beside the bay. The grounds are nice and the complex was quiet & relaxing. The condo's rooftop deck was a welcome bonus and was used for everything from my morning yoga to our boys spreading out & comparing their day's collection of seashells. This two bedroom condo was very spacious, had all the comforts of home, and was just perfect for our family's needs! The owner was wonderful to deal with - very friendly & accommodating. We will definitely try to stay here again on our next visit!

Good place to rest and relax

  • 4 of 5

The condo was clean and well maintained. The owner was helpful in answering questions and addressing concerns. I recommend this condo for seniors. Two very good restaurants within two miles of the condo. The names are Gulf View and Lock & Key. When we arrived it was a surprise to find this property does not have a beach because it has washed away. You will need to drive about two miles to use the public beach. The pool for this unit is located across the street. This unit has a slight view of the gulf but it is very obstructed. This unit could use some updating because the furniture is showing it's age. We had a great time at this condo for the month of May and we recommend Manasota Key as a great place to rest and relax.

Owner's Response: Our beach has partially washed away, but it changes all the time. There is still a good beach just a few steps south of our property so there is no need to go to the public beach a mile south of the condo. We expect the beach to return soon as it always has in the past. We offer continuous updating of all the furniture, as most of it has been replaced in the last few years and we will continue to update the remaining pieces that hasn't. We are the only rental unit to offer two big screen TV's with a computer and wireless as well as 3 LCD TV's all together. The views you see on the web site are taken right from the unit.

Piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this lovely condo for most of September and it was everything as described on the web page. The owner was very prompt with the answer to any queries and was very willing to accommodate any "extra" requests. Ideal location as we were able to walk to the pub for happy hour and stagger back along the beach to watch the sunset from the jetty outside the condo. Golf courses within easy reach and it was lovely to fall into the large complex pool after a hard day on the course. What more do you need?

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed it as much as we do. We also enjoy the new 55" LCD LED Smart TV with free Netflix in the evenings. Hope to see you next year!

January on Manasota Key

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent the month of January at this fine place. It has just about everything you could want in a rental. All of the info on VRBO was accurate and the pictures reflected this unit. We saw nothing that we did not expect.

We really wanted to vacation in February but this unit was already takemn in Feb and March by year after year people. We have already signed up for next year. We have been in this area of Florida many times before and find the local restaurants to be very good. Haven't been here for 3 years and some places have closed, some were not as good as we remembered and some new ones were very good.

We took a night off and went to a Caps-Bolts hockey game in Tampa. On;ly took 1.5 hours to get there. Major roads the whole way. The Caps lost but it was an enjoyable night.

Beach Beautiful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came from out of state. We found the condo spacious, beautifully decorated in a fun florida (beachy) style we reallly want when we come to the beach. It has absolutely everything and all you need to bring is your bathing suit and hit the grocery store on your way onto the island. The kitchen is fully furnished. Bob even has beach towels, beach chairs, coolie cups, a small cooler, free phone service, computer & printer for your use!

There are plenty of grocery stores, restraunts, and souvenier shops nearby the island. We spent evey morning at the beach, just steps from your condo, every afternoon at the salt water pool, every evening back at the beach for the sunset. We rarely left the Island.

In the condo there are two sitting areas looking through large windows boarded by beautiful palm branches you can see the Gulf view and enjoy your morning coffee if you don't want to walk the beach like we did. LOl!

We saw dolphins, manatees, lizards, and daily checked in on many sea turtle nest. The locals are friendly and one of the best spots we have been for shark tooth and shelling finds!

We have spent several years vacationing in Florida and this unit/facility rates top.

Thank you Bob for being available by phone as our guide to the area and to assist in any way if we needed! We hope to come back soon!
