About Stephen Pompeo
We have been coming to Manasota key since 1989. We love the ocean, beach, sunsets and want to share this with our guests.
Stephen Pompeo purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Stephen Pompeo chose Englewood
We loved the quiet, relaxed and unspoiled atmosphere of Manasota Key. No high rises here! We love our direct beach and gulf front condo with it's own private balcony overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. We enjoy watching the dolphins and sunsets from our balcony.
What makes this Condo unique
We searched southwest Florida for a beachfront homeaway on a quiet unspoiled, uncommercialized key. We got that & more at Sunburst on Manasota Key. We own both unit 111 and 211 both direct gulf front units, the only 2 gulf front units in this building. Our units both have their own private balconies overlooking the gulf of Mexico and it's unique gorgeous sunsets!!!

Right on the Beach!!
Very nice condo right on Gulf coast, takes 3 minutes to get to beach!! Great views from second floor deck. Clean and comfortable.
Thank you for taking the time to post a review for our Sunburst 211. We also enjoy the views from the second floor private balcony especially at sunset! We hope you are able to return to Sunburst 211 in the future!
Another fabulous stay at Sunburst Condos
We had another fabulous stay, at Sunbrust 211, in Englewood, Florida. We've been staying here for the past several years and each year, it seems to get better. The accommodations are more than welcoming. We had everything we needed, right down to the brand new gas grills, in the common area, available for our use. Waking up each morning, to the sound of the ocean, right outside our door, was just so relaxing. Each day, we had breakfast on the balcony, as we watched the pelicans dive and dolphins swim by. At dusk, we would bring our chairs back to the beach, to watch the most gorgeous sunsets we've ever seen. All of this, was only feet from the condo. What helped to make this vacation so relaxing, was that we never had to get in the car to drive anywhere, once we were settled, which was our goal. It doesn't get any better than the beach right outside our door and several restaurants within walking distance. I can't recommend Sunburst 211, enough. We're already excited about going back again, this year. Hoping Mother Nature provides another beautiful week of sunshine, for our next stay.
We are so happy to hear that our Sunburst 211 provided you with everything you needed for a perfect vacation. We look forward to your return again this year. Thank you for taking the time to post a review.
Quiet, relaxing and worth it!
This was our second stay and just as awesome as the first several years ago.. Super relaxing and secluded. Condo is well decorated and equipped. It is close enough to everything you could need, while being far enough away that you feel like you're away! Sunsets are stunning and there is a great outdoor grilling area. Only one critique...the management company has recently changed which doesn't match the info on HomeAway causing a little confusion at the end of a long car ride. Otherwise, can't wait to go back!! Blessings, Scott
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a thoughtful review. Our slice of paradise on Manasota Key is indeed special and secluded with a fabulous location with spectacular gulf and sunset views. On booking the management company sends check in instructions in the mail. We apologize for the confusion on check in with the online app check in instructions and it has been updated. Thank you for bringing that to our attention. We look forward to your return to Sunburst 211.
Updating would give this condo what is missing
We enjoyed our stay because we were close to the beach and the weather was wonderful. Though next time we will stay somewhere else. The condo had a great view of the gulf but is in real need of updating. It has a lot of potential to be awesome and not feel like your at your great grandmothers old condo. Need some more towels if you sleep 6, could use some essentials like a pair of scissors for instance. We had to go buy beach chairs because though the closet had tons of things in it, most were not great for comfort or were rusted. The air conditioner struggled to cool the unit so much so that we called to have it looked at. It was repaired and did a bit better but we had to have all curtains drawn to help it. That really defeats having a room with a view.
On a positive note, it was clean and we all slept well in the beds. Checking in and out was easy. We had assigned parking which helps.
Overall, we were disappointed that we paid more for the view and got less in the condo than our stay last year in a non- beachfront unit. Lesson learned
Thank you for your review. Yes, our view is great over the Gulf of Mexico and you can't get any closer to the beach. Your stay was in August which is the hottest time of the year and this is a top floor unit with a very open sunny exposure over the Gulf of Mexico, so sometimes the curtains do have to get drawn on the hottest days. However, if you want more shade our unit 111 below is partially shaded by the deck above. Thanks for reporting the ac issue and noting that the management company responded very promptly and had it repaired. They are coordinating the install of a complete new ac system in the unit right now. We are very fortunate to have a very close-by full service management company which you can call even to bring replacement beach chairs (they rust out very quickly at the beach). Also, we will be there during November to make updates, so any specific recommendations are appreciated. There won't be towels for 6 guests because the unit only sleeps 4. If you decide to stay again with us next year you can save the Homeaway online booking fee by booking directly with the management/rental company.
Would not rent this property again
The only positive about the condo is the balcony that overlooks the Gulf of Mexico. However, you have to go through the master bedroom to get to it, so even that is not perfect. The condo is dark, dingy, and dated. The kitchen trash can was dirty, & the tub/shower drained way too slowly. The beds and sofa were uncomfortable. I did not expect luxury at this price point, but I was hoping for cute & comfy. My family was so disappointed with this property that we left a day early from our 3-day trip.
Sorry to hear about your experience. We also heard that the rainy weather during your period of stay may have caused other folks to cut their trips short. When guests encounter any issues such as slow drains or dead bulbs they should contact the full time manager or us immediately. We have maintenance staff that would come right out and fix it. The only time we know when a drain becomes slow is when a guest tells us. So we wish you had let us or management know sooner so that it would not have impacted your stay. Yes, the price point and the unit's gulf front balcony are big positives. After the summer is when the unit usually receives any updates which is one reason why we hold the lowest rates even through the busy June and July months. So, we will definitely address any issues and do any needed updates after the summer to make sure the unit delivers that cute and comfy feel along with the amazing Gulf of Mexico views and value price.
Perfect distance from the beach, quiet, roomy, and well furnished.
Went for our honeymoon. Had the perfect view of the beach from the balcony. The condo had everything we needed to cook, clean, relax, and enjoy our visit. We were able to pack lightly and get the most out of our trip. The beach was fantastically close and on the weekdays, the beach was not crowded at all. It's the perfect place for anybody that wants to escape from reality for a little while. The nearby restaurants were wonderful. The condo was in a very convenient spot for gasoline, food, groceries, and even for exploring western Florida. Will be recommending to people in the future.
We are happy to hear you enjoyed your honeymoon in our little slice of heaven. We hope you can return for s second honeymoon one day. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience.
