Gorgeous Gulf of Mexico Views from This Spacious 3 Bedroom 2.5 Bath Condo!
Fantastic Direct-Beachfront 3 Bed/2.5 Bath corner unit with breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico located on the 2nd floor! This nicely decorated and sizable unit has a screened lanai, King size bed in Master bedroom, Queen bed in one guest room and two twins in the other. Nice open floor plan allows water views from the kitchen, living/dining room and master bedroom.
One of the newest Gulf front luxury condominiums on Manasota Key, Barefoot Beach Condominiums overlooks a wide expanse of beachfront and has a private heated swimming pool, covered parking and elevator service to each floor in a very convenient beach and waterfront location. (On-site reserved garage parking for one vehicle included with rental. Due to scarcity of premium parking on Key, additional vehicles must be parked off-site for a fee. Ask about options.)
This getaway offers it all… experience the fabulous views from the screened balcony, calm and peaceful morning walks on the beach, breathtaking sunsets, pristine waters of the Gulf of Mexico, various marine life and Florida shore birds. Being steps from the shore you will enjoy miles of sandy coastline and “finds” on the beach (shells, sharks teeth, sand dollars, etc).
For those that want to socialize you are within a 5 min walk of several island establishments offering delicious food, drinks and entertainment. Mingle with the locals and other tourists or just find your own private spot and listen to some of the best bands and musicians in the area. Shops and boutiques are also in walking distance of the condo as well as boat and jet ski rentals. Book a parasailing adventure or an Eco tour. Rent a boat for the day and explore our barrier islands or leave the driving to the experts and book a fishing charter for some world class fishing. Another option is to stop in at the fresh fish market and pick up something “just caught” to take back to cook for dinner. Just a 5 minute drive takes you into “town” with major grocery and departments stores, restaurants and our quaint “Dearborn St” with its dining, shopping and special events.
Manasota Key is a small barrier island on the southwest coast of Florida. In comparison to many of the modern areas in this part of the state, Manasota Key exhibits Old World charm. Like many coastal towns, the most popular activities here are beach activities. However, golfing, outdoor recreation and art galleries are also fun to visit in the area.
Come experience beach life at its best in this fantastic direct gulf front condominium!

Sea Shells Galore
Spectacular view, easy and convenient to get around. Small pool but we didn't use it anyway. If you like sea shells this is the place to be.
Lois, we are please you enjoyed the direct Gulf views, the beach and all the great shelling. We were happy to have you as guests and really hope you will come back to stay with us in the future! Thank you!
This place rocks.
Pictures do not do this condo justice.
We will be back for sure.
Thank you so much for your review. It was a pleasure having you as our guests. We certainly hope you will be back!!!
Englewood Beach after IRMA...
Our original vacation week got cancelled due to Hurricane Irma in mid-September however the VRBO owner/agent (Karl/Kim) were very accommodating in getting us rescheduled quickly after the storm. The condo unit was great with direct gulf-front view and ultra-convenient to everything on Englewood Beach. There was some storm damage noticeable in the area (tree debris, roofs, signs, etc...) but the biggest change we noticed was to the Stump Pass Park where you could now walk all the way south to the inlet along a beautiful wide beach. The only drawback to the week was the constant construction (renovation & repairs) going on at other units within the Barefoot Beach condo complex and the inoperative elevator in the building. We are so glad that the Englewood Beach area was spared major damage from Hurricane Irma and we look forward to visiting the area again in the not too distant future. Thank you Karl/Kim for your hospitality and for working with us to reschedule after the storm, we would definitely return to Barefoot Beach, Unit 203. -- Alan & Patti
Alan and Patti we were so happy to host you as our guests. As you know we were not made aware of the plans for construction in advance and were as surprised as you were. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding. We would like to make it up to you by offering you a special discount if you would like to return next year. I will be contacting you right away with this offer. We have never had issues with the elevator prior to this and hope it is repaired for good now. We are glad you enjoyed the condo and your time at our beach. Thank you so much for staying with us and we hope to have you as guests again in the future!
Beautiful Beach, Nice Condo
This is a great location right on the gulf beach, with awesome views of the sunset, convenient for shelling and walking on the beach, and overall a relaxing setting. We have vacationed in this building for several years and recommend it to others.
Great family vacation.
The description was perfect and everything about this place was just fantastic. The location at a private beach located within walking distance to jet skis, sunset cruises, fishing, and plenty of restaurants cannot be beat.
Thank you for taking the time to post a review of the condo. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our home and are happy that you discovered all of the fun things to do and see on Manasota Key. We were very happy to have you as guests and really hope you will come back to stay with us again in the future!
Beautiful condo!!!! Great view!!!
We had such a wonderful time in this spacious condo. The view is amazing. The owners were a pleasure to work with. Will definitely be back!!!!
Thank you Heather. We are very pleased that you and your family enjoyed staying at our beachfront condo. We certainly hope you will come back to stay with us again!

A hiking trail passes through five distinct natural communities that provide homes for many species of wildlife; covered picnic tables are located along the trail.
