About Christine Jensen

As for myself, I grew up on the water in a quiet town on the northshore of Long Island. I currently reside in the horse country of New Jersey, but was missing the water terribly until I bought this condo. I have four children ranging in age from 7 to 14. We absolutely love Manasota Key and try to get to Florida as much as we can. We have enjoyed fishing both from the shore and on the local charter boat, shelling and boating, building lots of sand structures and visiting the Mote aquarium. We certainly have our favorite things to do and I am happy to share them with you.

Why Christine Jensen chose Englewood

I am very emotionally attached to this property! I have wanted to return to the water since I moved out of my childhood home and this property represents a major change in my life and a major goal achievement. As such, it is not just another rental listing. Sharing the property when I can't be there helps with financing.

What makes this condo unique

I chose Fantasy Island over the other properties on Manasota Key for afew key reasons. First, it is beautifully maintained. The buildings are in great condition, the landscaping is beautiful and the pool is quite new. Second, for it's more intimate size. I enjoy quiet and privacy of this property with fewer units than most other associations. Thirdly, for the wonderful people I have met. My general understanding is that in most condo associations the environment is the residents against the renters. Fantasy Island is not like that. Everyone I have met has been wonderful and welcoming and respectful. My overall experience at Fantasy Island has been much better than expected.
