Walk through front door and walla, the gulf waters lay before you.

  • 5 of 5

Right place ; right location; right accommodations/amenities for a most relaxing time in this quiet place. The beach is great for walking and shark teeth picking ("fossil-ing" as one termed the activity) along with sea shells and sea glass finding. Restaurants in walking distance make in-house cooking unnecessary, although the kitchen is well equipped The lanai enables taking in the waves, bird (and people) watching, and dozing in the sun. The bedroom allows a view over the gulf to watch the full moon setting. Sun sets are spectacular from your perch just above the beach. Your immediate neighbors are cordial making for interesting conversations as many return every year enabling them to fill you in with the lore of the area. And the monthly pancake breakfast at the activity building is more than worth the nominal cost to have a satisfying meal and conversation in a very pleasant setting. We hope to be back next year and the next...

Property was perfect for us in lots of ways

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay. It fit our needs very well. The beach activities here and nearby were wonderful even tho the weather was cool. During a storm, the wave action was great to watch and listen to. Being so close to the action was awesome. Found good restaurants in the area thanks to copies of menus and comments from the owners.

Owner's Response: We wish we could control the weather too, but that’s the one thing that’s out of our hands. As you found, even storms are interesting from our vantage point. We are happy you enjoyed the accommodations and the weather after the clouds passed.

A Hidden Treasure!!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was a great find for us. It is right on the beach (only about 50 feet from the sand) which created a perfect setting for watching the sunsets and enjoying the sounds of the ocean. My wife and I walked the beach every morning (a little over 7 miles round trip) and loved every moment of it. The beach is mostly sand with enough shells and shark teeth to make it a seashell scavenger's haven. It was apparent that the residents of the area take pride in their beach because the garbage that blew in from one overnight storm was all picked up by the following morning.

The owners of the condo were easy to work with and provided all necessary information ahead of time. The beds were comfortable and the condo was stocked with everything that you would need for a several week stay. The condo was very clean and was presented just as shown in the pictures.

The grounds were also really clean and we felt very safe. The tenants in the complex were very friendly and it was apparent that they treated the area like it was their home. For example, one afternoon my wife and I, along with our 11 and 14 year old daughters had a sand sculpture competition. Even though the sculptures drew a lot of attention and photos from those meandering the beach, the sculptures were still left untouched when we departed several days later. On departure day, a couple of the long term residents commented on how they hoped the sculptures would still be there when their grandchildren would be visiting the following week.

The swimming pool was conveniently located between the condo and the beach (very close). The pool water was the perfect temp for swimming which our daughters loved because we (the parents) were able to join them in the pool without freezing.

Thank you for your hospitality. We hope for an opportunity to return in the future!!!

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your vacation. We take great pride in providing our guests with a home away from home that lets them relax and refresh. You are right about the care we take in our beaches. The shells and shark teeth are plentiful and we love keeping our world class beach clean. And we appreciate guests who treat our home as if it were their home.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This was a great stay and the property was even better than advertised. The views were amazing, beach and pool access unbeatable, and the unit was spacious. We had amazing views sun up to sun down, and came home with great shells, a lot of shark teeth and many fond memories. The owners were great to work with. I'd recommend this property without reservation!

Beautiful and clean beach!

  • 5 of 5

We have only been here one day - but we are so glad we did not cancel!! We had concerns about the gulf with the BP oil spill, but rest assured, this beach is beautiful and clean!! We are enjoying everything about this beautiful beachfront condo. It has all the amenities needed for a great vacation - beach toys for the little ones, comfy beach chairs for grown-ups and just a few steps to the beach! We have already enjoyed two beautiful sunsets on the lanai while dining on food we cooked here in the fully equipped kitchen (had everything I needed!). We will spend another day on the beach tomorrow - we promise to leave some shells for the next vacationers. Thank you for sharing your beautiful beach home with us!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this condo for 2 summers soon to make it a 3rd and love it. We have been going to the Manasota Key area for many years and love Pelican Landing for it's convenient pool access from the beach. Not many places in this area have pools this nice, basically on the beach. The condo itself is nicely appointed and comfortable. I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone wanting a nice relaxed vacation in a slow laid back community close enough to big attractions but not too close.
