We live in a small city in New Hampshire, but consider our condo on Manasota Key to be our second home. Our dream has been to have a condo right on the beach, but we never dreamed that we would have a home this nice and this large. We feel blessed and now look forward to renting our home to others who we hope love it just as much as we do.

We have a large family; ever expanding as grandchildren keep us hopping which is great fun, but sometimes exhausting. We have great kids and great son and daughters in law so we want them all to come; therefore, we needed this huge condo to put them. If we use the main unit plus the lockout in law space, we have a total of four bedrooms and four full and two half baths. Believe me; with our family we need it all.

We have the privilege of owning commercial and residential properties in N.H., where we have great tenants who are almost universally considerate and enjoyable. We have a considerable number of tenants so we feel that we realize the needs of tenants. This is our first time renting short term so please communicate with us as we aim to earn your trust. We hope that you will love our home and want to come back year after year!

We intend to introduce plantation shutters, architectural detail, new furniture and flooring this year, but most say we don't need to do a thing as the balconies and views are the best on Manasota Key.

Thank you for considering us. We will do our best to make this a wonderful vacation experience.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Debbie and I chose Southwest Florida and Manasota Key, in particular because of its laid back Florida lifestyle. We didn't want to fight traffic in Florida. We chose Gulf Breeze because of its bold Gulf front location. We are directly on the sand and we have beautiful panoramic Southerly, Westerly, and Northerly views of the Gulf and it's sunsets from four different balconies. We can see the sunrise over Lemon Bay from the easterly balcony. You can walk to our local restaurants and night life, yet our beach is uncrowded and very family oriented. If we want a hot dog we can walk to the hotdog stand or cook it on our grill allowing us to eat and snack on our beach. The grandchildren can play on the beach playground near our home.

Groceries and a wide variety of services are located just over the causeway, but we don't leave the island for days as we have fresh fish sold locally and convenience shopping right here. There are no tolls to pay to come to the island and you leave your cares and the traffic to others. There are no traffic snarls here and you can ride your bike easily to anywhere on the island.

We are close to Venice, Sarasota, and Naples, but Miami, the Everglades and Disneyworld are close enough for the kids to visit. Best of all we have fabulous wild and sea life so near. Walk the beach for miles as you view dolphins play just thirty feet off shore and beautiful shells by the hundreds appear at your feet. The Sea Turtles come each year to nest and the beach owners take their journey and nesting to heart. Beautiful birds of so many species come due to the natural surroundings of the isle.

We came to relax and leave the world behind and we do! We hope you love this island as do we.

We believe the most unique benefits you will enjoy are the bold panoramic views of every direction that you have from this condominium. The sunrises and sunsets from our balconies are unforgettable and mesmerizing.

This is the largest condominium on Manasota key measuring 3200 square feet or 4300 square feet should you rent the lockout unit. You cannot realize the balcony size, foreground and distant vistas comparable to these from any other condo on the Key. There are two balconies off of the living room and two balconies off of the master suite. The master has sweeping westerly views of the Gulf, and beautiful southerly views down the beach. The living room also has direct sweeping views of the Gulf and northerly and westerly views up the beach. The beach is lined with sea grass and sand dunes affording an ' old Florida ' laid back, uncrowded feel of yesteryear.

The master suite itself measures nearly 800 square feet having a large walk in shower,oval soaking tub and two large vanities. Each room in the condo has a view of the Gulf of Mexico. The kitchen is large and well stocked. The Dining and Living rooms are oversized allowing you to spread out and find your space. There are two bedrooms with 2 1/2 baths expanding to four bedrooms with six baths should you rent the expandable lockout unit. We have toys for the kids and bath towels and sand chairs for all. Linens are all provided. The condo hot tub is large enough for eight and the grill allows you to cook and eat right on the beach. You have under the building parking away from the sun. The elevator takes you right to your door.

Fantastic Condo and Views

Wow. That is the only way to describe the condo and views. The hardwood floors in the main living area and master bedroom are beautiful and go along well with the outstanding views from this condo. The decor and new paint are a nice beachy touch that adds to the value of this condo. All the amenities are there for you to include beach chairs and umbrella and it is just a very short walk out to the beach. If you are looking for space, then this is the place to stay. The guest bedroom is very large with its own private bath and walk-in closet. The master is a retreat in itself with two balconies to choose from and a large bathroom with separate tub and shower. I can only imagine what it would be like if you rented both condos for larger families. The condo is well worth the money. In our travels, this was by far the best condo we have stayed in yet. We spent each morning on the balcony (one of four) having our breakfast and watching the dolphins swim by and the pelicans/sea gulls diving into the water. We also took advantage of the plentiful shells along the beach. The key has several restaurants on the island but it is also a short drive to other restaurants and excurions.

Words cannot adequately describe the wonderful week my husband and i just spent at this amazing condo on beautiful Manasota Key! We have found our paradise!!! The condo was HUGE, well furnished, and everywhere we turned we had a breathtaking view of the ocean, from the 4 private balconies and many windows. We spent every morning eating breakfast on the west balcony, where we also saw dolphins swimming off shore and a sea turtle coming up to nest at night. The first couple of days we were here the water was the clearest and calmest we've ever seen in the gulf...so clear and calm, we actually snorkled from the shore and found beautiful shells and sharks teeth! And the shark's teeth are PLENTIFUL here...we collected over 900 easily over the week (we love sharks teeth hunting!). We ad the pleasure of meeting the owner, Dave...what a great guy! He was helpful with dining recommendations and ensured we were comfortable and happy with our accommodations. A very generous and happy to please kinda guy!
We would recommend renting from Bamford at the beach to anyone...if you are looking for beauty, comfort, amazing views steps from the beach, this is your place!!

We hope to return next year!

We just returned from 3 glorious weeks spent at this condo. I would first like to thank Dave & Debbie for sharing it with us and their incredible kindness and generousity towards us. The condo is beautiful and the views are breathtaking from the many patios and windows facing the gulf. We particularly enjoyed listening to the waves and watching the spectacular sunsets. We saw dolphins and manatees from the balconies and witnessed the nightly sea turtle onshore nesting and laying of their eggs. Wish we could be there for the hatchings! The condo is very clean, spacious, comfortable and well equipped. We would not hesitate to recommend it to our friends. The many upgrades and renovations that Dave & Debbie have planned for the condo will only make it even more spectacular & enjoyable than it already is We can't wait to see it finished. Great location on beautiful Manasota Key. Thanks again Dave & Debbie, it has been a pleasure renting from you.

At the risk of this unit becoming so popular that I am not able to reserve it again in the future, I feel that I owe it to the owners. They were so cordial and helpful. Walking in the front door of this unit leaves you with the impression that there is an endless infinity pool in your back yard, also known as the Gulf of Mexico. What a view from all 4 balconies of this unit, and a private beach just below.

The owners have an eye for detail. Well furnished and tastefully decorated. The unit had everything we needed, including beach chairs and umbrellas in the covered parking garage. So easy to go back and forth as needed between the beach and unit. Just the right distance away to commercial areas for shopping, groceries, watersport rentals. This was exactly what my wife and I needed to unwind on a long overdue vacation. We hope to be back.

We had the most wonderful holiday in this spotless, well appointed and very large condo. The view of the Gulf is just as the name suggests - spectacular. The whole condo was spacious with comfortable quality furniture. The kitchen was very clean and has everything you could possibly need - it was a pleasure to cook in there. The beach is quiet and is only steps from the condo. In short, we could not have had a better condo nor location - we look forward to our next visit there and would happily recommend it to all our friends. The owners could not have been more helpful and they have made the condo a delightful place to stay.
