About Owner

We bought this unit after spending time on Manasota Key and loved the atmosphere, weather and both bay and beach access. We now can't wait until the next time we can travel to the beach!

Owner purchased this condo in 2012

Why Owner chose Englewood

This unit is in a complex that has all the amenities you might find at a resort (other than room service). You have fishing, boating, tennis, pool and beach to keep everybody happy. If you like nightlife, there are a number of beach bars less than a mile away that usually have live music at night and great food.

What makes this condo unique

We think our condo is very inviting. It has a light, beachy, yet homey feel that even the kids can feel comfortable in. The unit is very clean and allows you to forget about your worries, at least for a little while.

Love the Bay to Beach Access!

  • 5 of 5

Great condo! We had a wonderful stay! The condo is spacious, clean, and has everything you need for your stay in the condo and visits to the beach! Kids loved the couch and boogie board! Owner is very prompt in responding to questions. Would definitely recommend and will hopefully be able to stay again in the future. I hope hurricane Irma takes mercy on Englewood!

Great Place, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This condo had everything we needed for a relaxing vacation. The unit was well stocked with everything needed or wanted for the beach, and the furnishings were welcoming and comfortable. We were pleasantly surprised that the beach/pool were really much closer than they appear in the pictures. As Tropical Storm Emily was hitting, we were glad to be across the street from the beach! The pool was sparkling clean and very inviting, and the bathrooms near the pool area are a big plus. Although there is some beach erosion currently in the area, there was adequate beach space to spread out a bit and enjoy, with many sea turtle nests right there. Also, they just finished a nice new seawall on the property and although the boardwalk wasn't back yet, there is a ramp made out of sand that allows easy access down to the sand. Restaurants nearby are a quick walk 1/2 mile away, and if you are going to Lock & Key they will send a golf cart for you to pick you up and take you home after dinner. At the end of the key is Stump Pass State Park, which we highly recommend, but get there early because parking fills up quick. We found it was a little to far to walk in the July heat but was a short car ride with beautiful scenery. Although this is on Englewood Beach, it is conveniently located a short drive from Venice, Nokomis and Siesta. (all worth the trip but we are partial to Nokomis Beach on Casey Key). Although our unit wasn't on the beach, we were able to see and hear the ocean from the front "porch". During the TS we could see the waves crashing at the top of the seawall. The view from the patio looking out across the tropical foliage and Lemon Bay was lush and serene, perfect for morning coffee and evening wine. The bay area down around the dock was beautiful as well. Overall the we had a great experience booking, arrival was easy and the unit/property exceeded our expectations. The only negative we really had, which is no fault of the owner just a condition of being in a tropical climate, was that we had (still have) ants in the car. They appeared overnight first day, inside and out, one still one occasionally popping out through a vent or seam in the interior, after they survived a 20 hour drive home. A good vacuuming finally did the trick, and they weren't fire ants or anything. Just a byproduct of being close to nature, and the environment here is very natural, we love it and would definitely return.

Very nice for the money!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was immaculate and spacious, with literally everything you could want in the kitchen. Lots of good food and shopping within reach. The pool was not huge, but really well-kept and not over-chemicalled. The beach was there--no crowds (not public), and pretty of room. One thing to know is that the beach and pool are across the street, int he other part of the complex, but not a far walk at all. We would definitely stay again!
