We bought this unit after spending time on Manasota Key and loving the atmosphere, weather and both bay and beach access. We now can't wait until the next time we can travel to the beach!
This unit is in a complex that has all the amenities you might find at a resort (other than room service). You have fishing, boating, tennis, pool and beach to keep everybody happy. If you like nightlife, there are a number of beach bars less than a mile away that usually have live music at night and great food.
We think our condo is very inviting. It has a light, beachy, yet homey feel that even the kids can feel comfortable in. The unit is very clean and allows you to forget about your worries, at least for a little while.
