Great location, great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is right on the Beach on Manasota Key. The unit is very well appointed and clean. Being on the top floor gives you a good view of the surrounding area, as well as a unobstructed view of the Gulf. We thoroughly enjoyed the stay and would recommend it to everyone.

I didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

Never have I ever felt so at home in a vacation rental. This beach front condo was immaculate. The furnishings were tasteful, and very comfortable. The view from from the fourth floor was absolutely gorgeous, with frequent dolphin sitings! The private beach is beautiful with an abundance of shells to collect. Tried a few of the local restaurants with easy walking distance...excellent. I will be back, and hopefully next time I will be fortunate enough to see a sea turtle.

Spectacular on all levels

  • 5 of 5

We had the best.....week....ever!!!!!! The beach was unbelievable. We enjoyed paddle boarding in beautiful water and searching for shark teeth (found several). Also, I had never been to a beach with such a treasure trove of shells. The condo was amazing. It was roomy, comfortable, and very tastefully decorated. Views from the 4th floor were amazing. We were able to watch dolphins and a manatee from the balcony (that's how close we were to the water.) I especially loved the backsplash in the kitchen. Bedrooms were good sized and well furnished. It was apparent that the owners take pride in this property and have worked hard to make it a "home away from home" for guests. Also, the restaurants in the area were wonderful; they sure know how to cook seafood. I hope to be back very soon.

AMAZING - highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed last week and we had the best time. The condo was easy to find, we had a reserved parking spot and easy access to the elevator. The condo is on the 4th floor and has an AMAZING view. Inside the condo is beautifully decorated and very clean. It was nice the owner leaves beach chairs, an umbrella and other various items in front of the parking spot to use at the beach. The condo also had plenty of nice beach towels for us to use. Having those items was particularly important to my family as we flew in on a plane and were limited and how much we could bring vs if we drove. The appliances are all newer and easy to use. The washer and dryer looks brand new! Looking forward to staying again in the future!

What a find!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time here! The beaches are pristine and uncrowded, the view from the balcony is stunning and it's interesting every day. A state park is nearby with trails leading to both the bay and the gulf. Inside the unit is spacious, well appointed and very, very quiet. The heated outdoor pool was perfect for stiff muscles after a long walk. We will definitely be back for another relaxing stay!
