*** WHAT SHALL WE DO TODAY?

Here are a few suggestions (please note that most of the below you can do without even getting into your car!):

Start your day by grabbing your coffee and watching a majestic sunrise over Lemon Bay right from your own lanai. Take a short walk and join in on some morning yoga on the beach.

Are you a beach lover? Stroll across the street and go for a swim. Collect seashells and shark’s teeth. Sunbathe and listen to the soothing sounds of the Gulf. Take a long walk on the seven miles of peaceful, unspoiled beach. Fly a kite. Fish in the surf.

Water sports. Bring your boat and park at our dock. Don’t have a boat? Take advantage of the many local boat rental options. You can also rent jet skis, kayaks, stand up paddle boards and more. Take advantage some of the best fishing around, from our dock, a boat or the Gulf Beach.

Food, Drinks and Entertainment. There are several restaurants within easy walking distance. Have a waterfront meal or just some drinks while listening to live music. If you are bold, you may even be able to show off your karaoke skills!

Last, but certainly not least, complete your wonderful day by watching an amazing sunset over the Gulf!

We hope to hear from you soon so we can help you plan your vacation!

About John Klein

We share a love for the beach. During some recent cold winters up north we were compelled to purchase a place that we could always get away to. We finally did and we couldn't be more happy with our choice. Now we own two, manage one and we love visiting and being able to share them with others!

John Klein purchased this condo in 2016

El Galeon on Manasota Key

  • 5 of 5

This property has a great view of the bay. The deck looks right out over one of the docks. The people that manage this property do a wonderful job of communicating and making sure everything is great. We even received new oversized beach towels to use for yoga on the beach!

The perfect vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully decorated condo with tranquil views of Lemon Bay and the Intercostal, provided wonderful quiet times for resting while also being only a minute walk from all the “action”. Our days were spent with yoga on the beach every morning, walks or boat rides, lunches at different restaurants down the street all with daily and evening music entertainment. Don’t miss the Sunday drumcircles or Thursday open air market. This property is so well maintained and completely equipped, there was nothing else we needed, but just incase, the management made sure we could reach them. We highly recommend this condo and look forward to returning!

A Little Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we walked we felt like we were in a beachy, relaxing atmosphere. Everything in the rental was bright, fresh, clean and up to date! The first thing we did was go out on the patio and see the amazing 180 degree water view! Steps away, across the street, is the gulf where the sandy beach was literally covered in shells of all kinds! The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, cookware and utensils just like home! I would most definitely recommend this rental, as well as the island itself, for beach goers, boaters, people who fish and those who enjoy good food, music, friendly people and relaxation!

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

Cute condo with a fantastic view! We brought our boat, and were able to have it right in our back yard. The condo was equipped with everything we needed. The location close to all the restaurants is excellent. We could sit on the patio and listen to the music from The White Elephant pub. We would definitely go back!

Wonderful Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I absolutely loved staying in this condo! It was very clean, tidy and simply designed. John and Carol were great with quick responses when we needed them. We will definitely be back. El Galeon is a spot my husband's family has been coming to for many many years and we will definitely be back to stay in this unit. Love the family vibe the complex carries. The view from our balcony was beautiful for breakfast and sunset; also most everything we needed was a short walk away. Thank you for your hospitality!! -Kaitlin & Jason

Beautiful Bay View!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed this condo. Everything was in great condition and it was so clean! Mornings and evenings on the lanai were truly beautiful. We saw dolphins near the dock every day and it is just a short walk across the street to the beach. A boat tour aroud the bay was a highlight of our stay. We hope to return to this condo.

Gulf of Mexico

Just south of Sarasota, off the coast of Englewood, this beguiling barrier island is in perfect harmony with its surroundings. No traffic lights, no high rises, no deed restrictions, just a two lane protected canopy road leading you to swaying palms, an endless white sand beach, and the warm, turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Casually sophisticated, Manasota Key offers a variety of lifestyles. Opulent waterfront estates mingle effortlessly with cozy beach-side cottages and classic winter residences. An eclectic variety of shops populate nearby Historic Dearborn Street and restaurants tempt eager visitors on and off the key.

Nearby sandbars offer soothing relaxation or invigorating water sports while big amenities are just minutes away. Manasota Key is the perfect match for those that would appreciate Century’s old Banyan trees alive with tropical birds, frolicking dolphin, loggerhead turtles, balmy sea breezes, the kiss of the sun, and the magic of the sunset endow Manasota Key with a dramatic, sensual, and serene ambiance. To get away from it all but requires the convenience of nearby airports. If you enjoy casual waterfront dining you’ll love the numerous restaurants, accessible by boat along the Intra-Coastal waterway from Sarasota to Boca Grande. Take family and friends 5 minutes south to Stump Pass and swim with the dolphins, hunt for pre-historic shark’s teeth and fossils, grill out, or just watch the sunset into the Gulf of Mexico. We assure you this is the most natural barrier island remaining on the west coast of Florida.
