We stayed the entire month of February 2015. Clean Clean Clean! Very well maintained and we did not even see one insect inside or even on the porch. This unit has everything you need for an extended stay and everything is quality and newer. You will not be disappointed with this unit as it is clear that the owner's take great pride in maintaining this condo. The location is wonderful! Go to the back, enjoy the pool or walk the dock and fish. And a free dock for your boat! It is 4/10 mile to the village center - fine bars and good restaurants and not far to convienent shopping major box stores. The beach is a short walk across the street - 5 minutes. The owners are great communicators, respond to e-mails & texts very fast. We brought one small defect to their attention and it was repaired the next day. This condo is a great value. The other residents were all wonderful, very friendly and helpful. I really liked that there were only 9 units, quiet and plenty of parking spaces. My only desire would be for more direct sunlight inside but because of the building position it lacks direct sunlight, at least in February. I highly recommend this unit and we are well traveled all over the world. Manasota Key is "old Florida" and there is no disappointment with this destination or this condo unit!
My wife and I just returned from a 10 day stay at Jim&Susan's condo.Let me just say it was just as advertised and more.Very tastefully decorated and comfortable and in a great location for what was a great getaway.Restaurants are close and very good.Our favorite place for good food was Mama's itallian on Macall rd about 10 min away.Rum Bay on Palm island was also super.If you have access to a boat it makes sightseeing fun.We saw countless Dolphins and many Manatees not to mention many beautiful homes on the area canals.If a 1 bed 1 bath condo works for you, check out Jim and Susan's condo.you won't be sorry.
We have rented vacation properties before and have been disappointed between what we expected and what we got. Not this time! The unit was well stocked with quality furnishings, linens and the kitchen was fully supplied with cooking needs. Let me say, the condo was sparkling clean ( a must, in my book), it had up-to-date, beachy furnishings that made us feel right ON VACATION - not at home!! I was very pleased with the owners who came by to be sure everything was in order. Anything we needed was tended to immediately with suggestions for restaurants etc...with the beach right across the street we weren't interested in traveling too far! The dock was close for fishing and watching dolphin and manatee. The pool was nicely heated and well lighted so we were able to use the common area at night. We were able to use the BBQ area adjacent to the pool one evening and joined in with a few other couples from adjoining rentals for a nice evening get together.
There is no question about coming back here - Fair price, excellent location, clean condo, plenty of amenities and a minute from beautiful Englewood Beach. The owners went out of their way to assure our satisfaction which is important to us. Anything could go wrong - but it didn't. Our vacation was wonderful, having made friends we plan on vacationing with again.
A car would be nice to see the area but you can definitely enjoy the beauty of the area as well as restaurants without a car. Living between Lemon bay and the Gulf of Mexico couldn't be a nicer place to relax. See you next year!
Location: ideal as it's located on a 7 mile thin strip of land with the ocean on one side and the intercoastal on the other. The road isn't too busy and the unit is less than a 10 min walk to the corner where the 3 restaurants and public beach are located (gets a little hectic there) By the way..good food and lots of bands. Try the burg at noon at The Gulf View..upstairs outside..$6 There are 4 gorgeous public beaches, one a short walk away (as mentioned) and the other three a short drive away.
Accomodation: spacious 1 bedroom unit (one of only 9 units). Immaculate with many upgrades and extremely well appointed. Virtually sound-proof units. Many extras..look in cupboards before grocery shopping...loaded with condiments and cleaning supplies. We replaced these items as needed. Good parking facilities. The building has frontage on the intercoastal and each unit has it's own boat slip as well as a nice size pool overlooking the water (heated). Never a problem getting a chair. Picnic area with 1 gas and 1 charcoal bbq. Lots of fish right off the dock and daily visits commom by dolphins.
Hosts: Sue and Jim are the perfect hosts. They contacted us (once) just to see that we were happy as they live nearby. I'm sure if we were missing anything they would have taken care of it immediately.
Would we go back? In a heartbeat. Unfortunately it's booked for the time we want for next year.
The only mini-glitch...there is no deeded access to the beach directly across the road. But there are many ways to get to the beach 3 or 4 properties away. We never had a problem and no one gave us a hard time. The main public beach as mentioned is less than a ten minute walk.
