About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Gorgeous Gulf front villa condo at "El Galeon By The Sea" . This lovely 2 bedroom/2 bath unit is part of a 20 unit villa condo complex situated directly on the beach on prestigious Manasota Key. Because this is a relatively small complex , it offers guests a more lay back and relaxed atmosphere . "By The Sea" is the newest complex in the El Galeon Resort . It has its own private beach and is only a 2 minute walk from Englewood Public Beach. Swim in the heated pool or in the Gulf of Mexico outside your door. The complex also offers an elevated private deck overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, with tables, chairs, and chaise lounges from where you can soak up the sun , have a beachside BBQ and witness some of the most spectacular sunsets on the Gulf coast. Fishing in this area is second to none, whether it be off the surf, in the local flats and waterways or out in the Gulf of Mexico. If boating is your pleasure, you can rent or bring your own boat and dock it at El Galeon By The Sea's private boat docks situated right across the street on Lemon Bay. Several restaurants and shops are within walking distance of this lovely complex and major shopping, dining, golfing and other activities are a short drive away on the mainland which is easily accessed via Manasota Key's 2 non toll bridges.

Englewood is only a 5 minute drive, Venice ...15 minutes....Sarasota...45 minutes ...Ft. Myer's 60 minutes and Tampa is approx. an hour and a half to the north . Day trips to amusement parks can easily be arranged.

This 2 bedroom/2 bath villa condo is fully furnished and equipped including washer/dryer right in the unit. All you need to bring are your personal belongings. High speed internet service is also provided free of charge!!! In addition to this lovely 2 bedroom unit, a 1 bedroom /1 bath villa condo is also available for rent. Please contact us for more details...

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Marg...well, this was our third time at El Galeon By The Sea, but won't be our last! Just love this place. The grounds are so well maintained and we really enjoyed the new sundeck - very nice! As usual, our unit was spotlessly clean and we really appreciated the upgrades, especially the new kitchen with granite countertops. You always seem to go above and beyond what one would expect from a rental agent, and it is very much appreciated! Please mark us down again for the same dates this December.

Wonderful vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in a 2 bed unit, 510, 2nd bed is a loft so privacy is limited. The condo is nicely decorated and very clean. It had everything we needed for a two week stay. Wonderful views of the sunsets and Gulf from living room & dining area. Wished there was a balcony. Marg arranged a dock across the street for our boat at no charge.The grounds and pool are landscaped beautifully and the common deck is great for sun and leisure. The beach has lots of shells and sharks teeth for the explorer. Plenty of pubs and restaurants within walking distance. We will definitely return soon to explore this area again.

Fantastic Beach Front location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at El Galeon By The Sea was much better than expected!

Our unit was right on the beach with a fantastic view. We could watch the sun set on the Gulf from our living room, or from the beach front deck. We saw Dolphin right off the Beach every day.

We would get up and walk the beach every morning to find sea shells and shark teeth. Great restaurants are just a short walk from the Condo.

Thanks Marg. We hope to come back often!

WOW! More than expected! Beautiful view and beach.

  • 5 of 5

My first impression was wow. What I beautiful condo, beach, and view. We will be coming back for sure. Place was super clean and we had all of the comforts of home. Would recommend this place to anyone who wants to find a real gem in Florida. But almost don't want to tell anyone, as we loved how private the beach was even during high tourist season. We had a blast! thanks so much!

Well be back!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was perfect. Everything went smooth. Marg took care of all of the details. Our villa was clean, decorated nicely, and had everything we needed and more. Excellent for a low key, restful vacation. We enjoyed the decks off our villa and the deck out front by the ocean. We walked to what ever we needed, food, cocktails, special coffee's. Great for couples, families with kids, or a nice retreat for a single person.

more than I expected

  • 5 of 5

El Galeon by the see was fantastic, very clean cando inside and out. Very spaciouse condo. Everything you need is there. The ocean is right there, the veiw was awsome. Short walk to food, coctails,nightly music, conveinent store and suvineir shop. we rented a jet ski that was alot of fun. Beutifull sunsets, shark teeth galore on the beach, we saw alot of dolphins in the ocean close in. Manasota is very laid back, my husband 52 myself 48 our daughters 23 and 12 all enjoyed our stay. I cant think of anything more I would want. I will be back.

Marg was very helpfull in all the details we needed. Thank you Marg for making our stay so relaxing.
