About Stephen Pompeo

We have been coming to Manasota key since 1989. We love the ocean, beach, sunsets and want to share this with our guests. We purchased Unit 111 downstairs in 2003. We loved it so much here, we bought this condo 211 as well.

Stephen Pompeo purchased this condo in 2012

Why Stephen Pompeo chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We loved the quiet, relaxed and unspoiled atmosphere of Manasota Key. No high rises here! We love our direct beach and gulf front condo with it's own private balcony overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. We enjoy watching the dolphins and sunsets from our balcony. We purchased Unit 111 downstairs in 2003. We loved it so much here, we bought this condo 211 as well.

What makes this condo unique

We searched southwest Florida for a beachfront homeaway on a quiet unspoiled, uncommercialized key. We got that & more at Sunburst on Manasota Key. We own both unit 111 and 211 both direct gulf front units, the only 2 gulf front units in this building. Our units both have their own private balconies overlooking the gulf of Mexico and it's unique gorgeous sunsets!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Condo fit our family of 3 very comfortably. We saw dolphins from the balcony and two turtles! The condo is well stocked, beds comfy too. Priceless view, can't beat having coffee on that balcony in the morning. Thank-you for sharing your home!

  • 5 of 5

Went for our honeymoon. Had the perfect view of the beach from the balcony. The condo had everything we needed to cook, clean, relax, and enjoy our visit. We were able to pack lightly and get the most out of our trip. The beach was fantastically close and on the weekdays, the beach was not crowded at all. It's the perfect place for anybody that wants to escape from reality for a little while. The nearby restaurants were wonderful. The condo was in a very convenient spot for gasoline, food, groceries, and even for exploring western Florida. Will be recommending to people in the future.

Would not rent this property again

  • 1 of 5

The only positive about the condo is the balcony that overlooks the Gulf of Mexico. However, you have to go through the master bedroom to get to it, so even that is not perfect. The condo is dark, dingy, and dated. The kitchen trash can was dirty, & the tub/shower drained way too slowly. The beds and sofa were uncomfortable. I did not expect luxury at this price point, but I was hoping for cute & comfy. My family was so disappointed with this property that we left a day early from our 3-day trip.

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear about your experience. We also heard that the rainy weather during your period of stay may have caused other folks to cut their trips short. When guests encounter any issues such as slow drains or dead bulbs they should contact the full time manager or us immediately. We have maintenance staff that would come right out and fix it. The only time we know when a drain becomes slow is when a guest tells us. So we wish you had let us or management know sooner so that it would not have impacted your stay. Yes, the price point and the unit's gulf front balcony are big positives. After the summer is when the unit usually receives any updates which is one reason why we hold the lowest rates even through the busy June and July months. So, we will definitely address any issues and do any needed updates after the summer to make sure the unit delivers that cute and comfy feel along with the amazing Gulf of Mexico views and value price.

You cannot beat the location, right on the beach and delightful pool by the bay.

Condo is somewhat dated, but space is nice and view is unbeatable. The people here are very friendly and gather for sunset and byo cocktails on the shared deck every night.

It was the best Florida vacation we've taken!

  • 5 of 5

It was a perfect location and the beach was beautiful and so perfect. We felt like we had our own private beach with a great area to explore. The condo had everything we could have needed and more. Very clean

and appropriate decor. Everything was better than

promised. We had one small issue. Literally responded to in minutes. Nothing is ever absolutely perfect but it was so amazing a minor concern was

addressed so quickly and well. I enjoyed my interaction with

the owners from beginning to

end. We were fine with the quiet key and few businesses. We found three restaurants perfect on the key and anything else we needed right over the bridge. If you want noisy and busy don't come to manasota key. One thing to know in the winter though, pool isn't heated but no worry, the ocean was warm😊򒠠We hope to return many more times to come and stay at the same place.

Almost like being at home....except for the great sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

We spent several nights and now wish we'd reserved a whole week! The upstairs two bedroom/two bath unit was so comfortable and I can't remember needing even one item b/c the condo had it all (thanks to the Owners.) (If you stay more than a couple of days though, take some extra paper towels and toilet paper.) It was a tad bit outdated (think '70's), but very clean and the furnishings were nice. But what we really enjoyed every day was the deck across the back of the whole unit! It was not huge, but perfect for 2-4 people. We brought a beach umbrella, but quickly discovered that sitting out on the deck was just as, much better!.....than sitting on a sandy beach. It was a good place to people watch too. :) We stayed out on the deck everyday until the hot sun forced us back inside between 1pm to 6pm, but then we were back out on it until around 11pm. It was so much fun taking pictures of the sunsets and posting on Instagram (made our friends The natural landscaping around the condo plus Manasota Key and Englewood at large reminded us of the Old Florida (we're in our sixties) and we really appreciated seeing and feeling that type of environment. We found a great little seafood "market" and steamed "boat-run" (e.g. caught that day!) peel and eat shrimp one evening. All in all, it was such an enjoyable mini-vacay......and we hope to go back again next summer.

WOW!! Sunset view from your balcony!!!!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived we easily found our parking spot...,and the key to enter. Entering we were pleased with the cleanliness of our vacation home.

Once unpacked our daily walk was steps away on the beach at Manasota Key. Seashell's everywhere! So far so good. Then sundown arrived.... and as we sat on our deck enjoying a glass of wine we watched the setting sun sink into the Gulf of Mexico. WOW! Next we easily walked to one of the excellent local restaurants for dinner. All in the first day. Each day next was as good as the first.
