Our family thoroughly enjoyed this lovely, spacious, well-maintained home which included all conveniences and a private backyard. Communication from Gareth, the owner, was prompt, helpful, and accommodating.
Great peaceful location
We liked this villa - close to the beach and easy access by road to shopping and links to other key roads. You can walk to the beach (about 15-20 min walk) or an easy 5 min drive. Parking at the beach is free, although remember to bring your own drinks and food as there aren't any shops next to the beach to buy from. The beach is beautifully clean, and many gather to watch the sunset. The bed/mattress in the 2nd master suite is very hard. We had a few issues, but Gareth is very approachable and sorted everything as quickly as he could. Gareth lives locally which is a huge plus. The outside furniture is quite tired and the cushions seem rough to sit on, so we covered them with a towel.
However, these are small points and overall we were very pleased and would be happy to return. Very Happy to recommend this villa if you like somewhere quiet, close to the beach, but also has easy access to local shopping and main roads.
As a family of three generations and after a week in Orlando we could not have chosen a better place for a relaxing stay.
The villa is of a high standard - beautifully clean, well equipped and spacious. The outside area is an ideal social space and the large pool a favourite - the sound system adding to the enjoyment. We even caught sight of a mother and 2 baby otters on their way to the pond at end of garden. It is in an ideal location with beach and shops just a few minutes drive away.
Right from our first contact Gareth, the owner, could not have been more helpful. The few problems we had whilst staying at the house were quickly and efficiently dealt with.
We would not hesitate to recommend the property and will hopefully return ourselves at some future date.
Glad your family had a great stay and thanks for the complimentary comments about the home. From time to time there will be maintenance issues with any home and it is good to know that prompt attention is appreciated. Thanks for your understanding.
A fantastic perfect getaway for a family holiday. Very spacious, light and airy rooms. Very well equipped kitchen. Pool and patio are good size and very well maintained. The long drive made it very private and quiet too. Situated on the road leading to Manasota Beach which has plenty of parking for the days you don't want to make the 20 minute walk. Venice beach is only 10 minutes away. We've been to the Sarasota County area about 8 times and this was the best house we have stayed in. The owner, Gareth, very helpful and sorted out any issues we had immediately.
All in all we had a great Christmas and New Year here - certainly beat the cold British weather! Will definitely be back at some point!
We absolutely loved our stay in this villa. It was spotless when we arrived, we have stayed in others in the past which have not quite appeared as portrayed on line, but Manasota Manor had everything we needed for our stay. We loved the pool area and the journey to the beach was 5 minutes, with everything we needed being stored in the garage.
The only minor issue was that some of the cushions on the pool furniture were a little worn but it didn't spoil our holiday - we would love to go back.
Glad to read that you had a great stay and that the home is as good if not better than portrayed on our HomeAway listing.
All the seating and cushions were new late last summer with the exception of a couple provided for the sun loungers. We will certainly look at those when our present guests leave.
Often when you choose a rental online, sight unseen, you are taking an expensive risk. We just returned from 2 weeks in this lovely home. Description and photos just don't do justice to this retreat. Our grandchildren joined us for a week and thoroughly enjoyed their own rooms and the awesome pool. In less than 2 minutes we were at Manasota Beach. The home was spotless and amenities were as described. Gareth was very personable and fun to speak with. We will not hesitate to return!
