  • Home and Owner are Excellent

    "My family and I stayed in this wonderful old home in 2011. It looks exactly the same now as it did back then. We often dream of going back. The year we stayed there my health was in decline. Now 6 years later I only can wish I could travel back and enjoy the beauty and wonder of this great place. I am posting this for any future prospective renters. I was just thinking of the good times we shared there so I decided to look the place up. I found my email correspondence with James (the owner) and found the address. My opinions are these. This is a fun place to stay. Wonderful and amazing wildlife and beach beauty surrounds you. The beach is practically deserted and secluded. This isn't a new build so naturally its going to show its age but that far exceeds the privacy and beauty it offers. It was clean and tidy. Old yes, but well maintained. If you want a great little bungalow that offers unmatched gulf coast beauty at an affordable price....this is the place to stay. Now as far as the owner. He was ALWAYS there for us. He helped us in every way whenever we needed anything. He met us in person on request. Answered emails quickly and i talked to him several times on the phone. I pray his health is improving and he is able to continue renting this place for many years to come. I want to be able to call him up again one day and return. If I wasn't sick we would have returned multiple times already. James thank you for sharing your home with us in 2011. Thank you for being attentive to our needs. Thank you for offering such a wonderfully beautiful and private place at such an affordable cost. I pray you are healing and feeling much better. John - July 30th-Aug 6th 2011"

  • Cozy, Comfortable, Clean

    "This condo is small, but perfect for a couple looking to completely relax and enjoy the warm sunshine of SW Florida. The place was spotless when we arrived and stocked with everything we needed for our stay. The owners were lovely to deal with and other residents polite and friendly. Daily walks on the beach, afternoon bobbing in the pool, and wonderful local restaurants for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The perfect antidote for de-stressing. Highly recommend and hope to be back soon."

  • An Amazing Getaway!

    "My husband and I chose to stay at this wonderful beach condo on gorgeous Manasota Key for a vacation getaway. We were so impressed by everything about this condo, from the professional and warm dealings with the owners, the gorgeous and comfortable condo, and the beautiful beach it sits on. This vacation allowed us to relax and enjoy the many things there were to do. There are boat, kayak, and jet ski rentals in the area, just to name a few. We loved using the bicycles, included with the unit, to cruise around the island. We were able to pick from the great selection of restaurants, that were just a mile up the road, for lunch and dinners with and without musical entertainment. We felt there was something for everyone. We enjoyed countless hours on the beach, swimming, floating, and watching amazing sunsets. Every sunset was so unique and breathtaking! We would then head to the pool to continue enjoying our 'fun in the sun.' When we were ready to get out of the sun, we would escape to the condo, which offered us a comfortable and well-equipped "home away from home" feel with a beautiful view of the ocean from the lanai. I would recommend this condo to anyone looking for a great vacation. We are hoping to be able to return to it in the near future!"

  • A hidden hidden treasure and "Castle in the Sky" - Get ready for a fantastic vacation.

    "We rented this amazing home for a week to celebrate the life of my Uncle who recently passed away at 90 and who resided in Engelwood since the 1970's. We decided to bring some family together for a week in his hometown with my Aunt and his family. Luckily, this home was available and provided a wonderful solution and home for us during this time. This house is loaded with design and luxury. It is decorated with both good taste and style. It has a unique layout with the first floor providing 4 nice size bedrooms, 3 baths and an informal recreation room. The upstairs level is for full entertainment with a wonderful kitchen that has everything one needs to entertain. The dinning room and living room are very comfortable with huge views of the Manasota Keys beach and the Gulf Ocean. There are outdoor space is available on both levels. The upstairs deck is to is breath taking with views of the Golf and the Bay. One feels like you are in a private treehouse with views abound. The owner(s) has taken great detail to make this home a special get away in a private home with a resort / hotel feel including luxury towel, beach towels, nice bed lines and evening vanity shower gel, shampoo and conditioners in every bathroom. There are DVDs, games, books, hair dryers, all the cleaning supplies, laundry and dishwasher supplies one needs. The home has been well cared and demonstrates pride of ownership. I believe this to be one of Manasota Key / Engelwood's best vacation rentals and we feel fortunate to have stubbled upon it. "A hidden treasure - a castle in the sky". The owner's communication is excellent and she executes on her word. I was nervous about renting and payment. Lynda was very professional and committed to making this a smooth transaction. Not one issue including seamless access through detailed instructions provided electronically for access and departure. I would definitely recommend this vacation rental home and the owner's professional business transaction and communication. Deposit with returned without any issues. We will definitely stay there again!!!! We are grateful for this special home during a time of memorial and celebration with our family. My 85 year old mother said it best when we were flying home….."The vacation was a "10"!! Thank you Lynda for sharing your home. Wow!!!!!!"
