We have just returned from a fantastic week in Lake View Manor.
There were 6 of us in our party and there was more than enough room for everyone - the villa is huge. Our first impressions were 'wow', all our expectations had been met and exceeded. The photos do not do the property justice - it's far better in reality.
The villa was very clean, well equipped and comfortable. The pool are was brilliant, with plenty of space for swimming, barbecuing, chilling and sunbathing. We loved the fact there was all day sunshine, but there were areas in the shade, should you so require.
The view from the villa is beautiful, overlooking a lake/bird sanctuary and we spent many an time sitting on the lanai with a coffee, soaking it all up.
Manasota Beach is really lovely and only a 2 minute drive away. It was a fantastic place to find shark teeth or watch the sunset (spectacular). There is also free parking, toilets and shower facilities.
We did a lot of exploring locally and loved the area.
Within a 10 minute drive, there were an abundance of shops and restaurants to suit all budgets.
We spent the last night on a sunset and dolphin boat cruise which we would highly recommend.
If you are looking for a stunning villa in an equally amazing area, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lake View Manor.
