Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent January at La Coquina and couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay. The kitchen had just been renovated and was perfect, nicer than mine at home! The condo had everything we needed, including a George Foreman grill on the lanai, chairs for the beach and even bikes if we had wanted to ride. The only surprise was the beach erosion was starting to show up where the complex is, but we could get onto the beach and enjoyed many days sitting and walking on the beach and shell hunting. In the evening we just walked from the condo with wine in hand to watch the sunsets over the beach. Beautiful! It is a short, 3/4 mile, walk down to Englewood public beach where there are restaurants, a boardwalk and even yoga on the beach as well as the drum circle on Sunday nights. The owner was very responsive and wonderful to work with, even checking in with us to make sure all was well. Thank you for the wonderful time!

Great Place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 2 month stay at La Coquina & thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It is close to shopping, a number of fine restaurants (Lock-n-Key & Maria's Italian Restaurant are musts) & of course the best part - the beach! There are wonderful sunsets to see, shark shells to collect as you walk the beach & a wonderful lanai to sit & relax at either eating your meals or reading a book... or even snoozing on the lounge chair listening to the waves. The pool is very close by & it seemed like we had it to oursleves most of the time. They have everything you need for the enjoying the area - beach chairs, coolers, bikes, even fishing gear. You will not be sorry ot come enjoy this clean condo by the beach.

Great Week at La Coquina on Manasota Key

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at La Coquina on Manasota Key. The condo was in a perfect location, close to restaurants and steps away from the beach. It was well equipped with everything you need for the beach, great chairs, beach bag, coolers & more! I especially enjoyed sitting in the screened in porch with a glass of wine, listening to the waves crash on the beach in the late afternoon. On our last night we went to the Wine Bistro which I would highly recommend. We hope to return at some time in the future.

Long overdue vacation at La Coquina

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 8 day stay in Manasota Key. This was my first experience with VRBO and everything went off smoothly. The owner of this condo was excellent to work with and the Condo fit our needs perfectly. Breakfast on the Gulf view Lanai everyday made a terrific start to each day. The storage room below was stocked with chairs, floats, beach umbrella, etc. for our use. The condo was furnished very nicely and comfortable. We are planning a return visit in December and will definitely try to arrange staying here again.

January at La Coquina

  • 5 of 5

We had an outstanding two weeks in this one bedroom condo. Everything was as advertised: excellent space, well furnished, well appointed kitchen and outstanding location. A few steps to the beach for walks, shelling, sunset and wine (the sunset was provided but you bring your own wine!). Looking forward to a longer visit next year. BTW, Manasota Key has some nice restaurants and Blind Pass is not to be missed.

April 5, 2012. Awesome

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for a wonderful stay! My husband, son and I stayed for a week at this condo. Super time. It was great to have a fully equiped kitchen, bikes, beach chairs coolers etc. We couldnt ask for more! The condo was clean and comfy and loved have the beach so close. We were able to take nice walks in either direction for our morning stroll. One night we even walked to a local restuarant for dinner.

Fabulous and friendly! We would come definately come back!

thanks for all!
