Quiet, relaxing getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Property was well kept. No complaints at all. Community is nice, we visited during the off season. Easy access to beaches or relaxing by the pool. It was a rainy week, odd for Florida, plenty to explore and do with a 2 hour drive or less. Owners very accommodating. Return trip will be in the future.

Paradise Found Here at Sea Oats By The Bay

  • 5 of 5

WOW...We have never stayed in a place where it was so stocked with anything and everything you could ask for. And VERY CLEAN!! Dana and Jim are outstanding hosts and we enjoyed meeting and spending time with them. They are down to earth people and attended to every request immediately, no matter how minor. The beaches were close and one is within walking distance. To our delight we saw things at the beach that we never saw before : -)....quite memorable for us. The dock was enjoyable to fish off of or just relax on the bench and take in the wildlife that inhabits Lemon Bay. Manatees were spotted from time to time cruising around the dock. The pool was awesome! We spent many hours relaxing there enjoying the Florida sunshine and bright blue skies. Delicious well prepared food at restaurants on Manasota Key and right off the Key made for some great dining experiences. Easy to navigate area where you can't get lost. What more could you want?? The Gulf water is many shades of turquoise blue and the beaches are full of shells and we actually found fossilized shark teeth! Spectacular sunsets over the Gulf! We miss it already. This was our first trip to the West Coast of Florida and we will definitely be back to stay at Sea Oats By The Bay. We had a wonderful relaxing time. Till we meet again. Best Wishes. Nancy and Charlie from PA.

We have stayed at several VRBO properties all over the country, and this by far was the best. Very comfortable, clean and well appointed.

Towels, linens, furnishings and beach gear were top notch.

Dana and Jim (owners) were very responsive to our needs, and bent over backwards to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed.

Looking forward to our next visit.

Second stay at Dana and Jim's. Makes two great experiences. Modern condo perfectly equipped. Great location on Lemon Bay with entrance to Gulf just down the road. Small quiet condo community ( 9 units) with heated pool. Can t recommend enough.

The condo was great! Dana and Jim thought of everything.

  • 4 of 5

Loved morning coffee on the dock. Sat there looking at the birds while my husband fished. We did get to see a dolphin off the dock. Dana is the dolphin whisperer. We were the only guests during the week so it was quiet. Will definitely be back!!!

Another wonderful stay at Sea Oats!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit this year, and it was every bit as nice as our first...even a little better because we had use of Dana and Jim's peddle boat this time, and what fun! The unit is spotless and so accommodating and comfortable. We wish we lived there!! The pool is great with perfect water temperature. The beaches are very nice and the local restaurants have great food. As before, I would highly recommend this rental!
