About Susan R. McQuaid, Owner

I love to travel and rent vacation homes for our family including our five grandchildren. We always try to pay attention to detail to make our guests' stay as comfortable as possible. Manasota Key speaks for itself as one of the most beautiful travel destinations in the US.

Susan R. McQuaid, Owner purchased this condo in 2000

Why Susan R. McQuaid, Owner chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Manasota Key is simply the most beautiful, pristine Key in Florida. The beaches are gorgeous, fishing amazing, and the two-lane road up the Key is quiet as the tourists stay away from this low-key, relaxing environment. Yet, we have some fabulous restaurants that you can walk to from Turtle Bay Condos or the town of Englewood is only two miles away for your shopping to stock your condo.

What makes this condo unique

You will find very few developments that are Owner owned and operated. We surround ourselves with the best staff and sub-contractors in the area to make sure everything is in tip top shape. The one thing you'll read in our reviews is how immaculate every condo is!

If this condo is not available, be sure and ask what else we may have!

5 Star Review Posted on TripAdvisor:

We had a wonderful time at Manasota Key and Turtle Bay Condos! I don't think there is anything we would change! We had everything we needed. We really enjoyed being so close to the bay and the beach! We absolutely hope to visit again in the future.

Great location on Manasota Key

  • 4 of 5

Loved the access to the dock, pool and short walk to the beach and restaurants.

The condo was spacious and has everything you need. It is just a little dated is all.

Susan and team are very responsive and accommodating.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I had the opportunity to spend three days at Turtle Bay condos. Our condo was very clean, spacious, and close to everything we needed including the beach, boat rentals, grocery stores, and restaurants. The pool and fishing dock were a definite plus.

I give it my highest rating. Great value and a great time.

Our 2016 Spring Break Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the Turtle Bay Condos! Everything was in good working order, clean, and fully stocked! We enjoyed using the beach chairs and pool noodles that were supplied! The pool was nice and warm which was especially great on the one day that it was chilly outside. Our absolute favorite part of the condo was the screened-in porch facing the pool!! I would definitely recommend this condo to friends and/or relatives:)! Susan was very easy to work with when planning our stay!!

Another beautiful week

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year in a row in this wonderful condo, and we've rebooked for next year. The condo is immaculate and well equipped with everything you need for a relaxing week. We love having the dock on Lemon Key in the back, and the beach right across the street. It's a quiet, uncrowded beach.....just what we love! Susan is the most responsive owner I've ever dealt with. She answers emails immediately, and goes out of her way to make sure everything is perfect!

Very Clean and Well-Appointed-Across the Street from Wonderful Englewood Beach

  • 5 of 5

Great property management-very professional in all correspondence and financial transactions.

Well-appointed condo with well-stocked kitchen, plenty of blankets, towels, beach towels.

Perfect location, across the street from the beach but we could hear the waves at night if we left our sliding glass door open.

Quiet neighborhood, this location is good for everyone who is respectful of the condo property its and friendly retiree neighbors. Not a party place-this is more for quiet families. All appliances worked great, can't wait to go back!
