About Susan R. McQuaid

I love to travel and rent vacation homes for our family including our five grandchildren. We always try to pay attention to detail to make our guests' stay as comfortable as possible. Manasota Key speaks for itself as one of the most beautiful travel destinations in the US.

Susan R. McQuaid purchased this condo in 2000

Why Susan R. McQuaid chose Manasota Key

Manasota Key is simply the most beautiful, pristine Key in Florida. The beaches are gorgeous, fishing amazing, and the two-lane road up the Key is quiet as the tourists stay away from this low-key, relaxing environment. Yet, we have some fabulous restaurants that you can walk to from Turtle Bay Condos or the town of Englewood is only two miles away for your shopping to stock your condo.

What makes this condo unique

You will find very few developments that are Owner owned and operated. We surround ourselves with the best staff and sub-contractors in the area to make sure everything is in tip top shape. The one thing you'll read in our reviews is how immaculate every condo is!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Five Star Review Posted on TripAdvisor:



My husband and I took our two grandchildren to visit our other daughter who lives in Rotunda West. The location was perfect. The beach is right across the street and right behind the pool my husband was able to do some fishing. The condo was very clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. Susan was so great to work with it and I really appreciated her quick replies. We are looking forward to staying here again!

Get Away Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We spent 6 days at the Turtle Bay Condos and had a great time. The condo was clean, beautifully furnished and easy to find. The screened in porch was a great place to relax and listen to the palm trees blowing in the wind and watching birds fly over. The beaches were great- found so many sharks teeth. Sunset was beautiful to watch. Went to a Stone Crabs Minor League Baseball game- very fun! Hope to get back again next year.

Owner's Response: We know you came looking for sharks teeth and knew you would not go home disappointed! Thank you for mentioning Stone Crabs Minor League Baseball - another perk of staying in our area. We look forward to welcoming you back next year.

Still beautifully maintained, quiet, and very well appointed. 100 steps and you're looking at Lemon Bay, 50 steps and you're in the pool, a 5 minute walk and you're in the Gulf!

Turtle Bay Condos...AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5
We just came home to Tampa after a 9 day trip to Turtle Bay Condos. We found this great property through VRBO. When I first expressed an interest in the condo for the dates I wanted, Susan IMMEDIATELY contacted me back! I was very impressed because the places I contacted through VRBO before never got back with me.

This year, I decided to try VRBO again and found Turtle Bay Condos. Our timing was tight, but Susan emailed me immediately and responded with helpful info. After a couple of emails, she called me...surprising but welcomed! We settled on a date and condo 3B after she learned the ages of my kids. We settled on price and payment. About a day later, she let me know the condo was available earlier and that if my travel plans were flexible, we could book for 9 nights; and she worked a deal, I could not pass on that! I am SO glad we did! The day of our departure, she texted me and said our condo was cleaned and ready early and we could come in. I had to work, but to get this text was so refreshing knowing my family and I were ready to get on with vacation.

We got in and opened the door to 3B and WOW!!!!! What a great condo!!! Clean, comfortable, quiet and overlooking Lemon Bay! I was relaxed immediately, and my family went right to the dock to fish. Tuesday night we had a power outage from a storm...I am from Tampa, FL and deal with summer storms all the time and am used to those types of interruptions. We simply lit a candle and pretended it was camping...well, my phone rang, and it was Susan calling from California giving me an update on the outage! I was seriously impressed!!!!

Anyway, the condo was perfect for my family. I brought extra stuff like a wine opener, cooking tools, etc. and DID NOT need anything I brought. Very impressive array of cooking things! Really made me feel at home to cook and be happy!

My son and husband LOVED being right on the dock to fish! Beach was not too far away. It was prefect! I think I loved the screened in porch and having a private washer and dryer the best! No mosquitoes and an outdoor living space with a place to hang wet bathing suits and towels. How awesome to have its own door access so you don't drag wet and sandy stuff through the condo!

I definitely recommend Turtle Bay Condos! We are already talking about reserving for next year!

We have been coming to Manasota Key for 35 years to our family home. This year we needed extra room to accommodate family and friends for my son's wedding...and a place for his little dog....the condo was convenient, clean, and spacious. Will be recommending to family and friends!

“This was the most relaxing and refreshing vacation in FL that we have ever experienced!”

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed watching the manatees from the dock, spectacular sunrises from the lanai overlooking Lemon Bay, along with gorgeous sunsets on the gulf at the beach (2 minute walk from the condo). The condo was spotless, and provided us with many amenities. The heated pool was awesome for those days that were a bit too windy to spend at the beach. Susan McQuaid, Turtle Bay Condos owner even provides guests with beach towels, fishing poles, bait buckets, along with some things that travelers forget to purchase, i.e. hand soap, cofee filters, toweling, etc. The condo is very tastefully decorated, and the appliances were fairly new and in working order. The bed was comfortable, as well. The proximity of these condos is close to night life spots, and close to great restaurants. I am hoping that we can return in the near future. When we come back to Englewood, our first choice would be to stay at Turtle Bay Condos. We hope to be back very soon. Very Impressive!

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5
I spent a week here with my 2 adult daughters. We all loved the condo and the location. The condo was immaculate, and the kitchen had everything we needed for the week. The beach is just steps away, and the sunsets are spectacular. We loved the dock in the back, on Lemon Bay... Saw lots of dolphin, and the manatees came right up to the dock! Loved the screened lanai, ate all our meals there. Such a peaceful, relaxing spot!
