About Mike Hagemann

I live in Rockford. Illinois. I do not want to live in Florida because as I tell everyone 'it takes all the fun out of going there'. Recently retired and enjoying my family which are all located here in Illinois. Another reason why I do not move to Florida.

Mike Hagemann purchased this condo in 1996

Why Mike Hagemann chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

I love being on the beach while I am here visiting. Enjoy daily walks on the beach to the end of the key (Stump Pass). Manasota Key is a quiet, laid back area away from the hustle of a bigger town. Englewood has all that I need close by since I don't want to spend my time in Florida driving. I would rather be walking on the beach.

Average accomodations

Melissa was absolutely fantastic checking us in a little early. Unit 121 had a fabulous view and we loved hearing the waves all night long. The people were extremely friendly and invited us several times to sunset cocktail hour. Our purpose in staying was to view condo properties with a realtor so we did not have the time to truly 'vacation' and enjoy the beach. The unit itself was clean and pleasant. However, the overall impression of the complex was it looked tired and worn. Needed serious updates to trim woodwork, carpets on stairs, lighting fixtures etc. It appeared from the outside that many of the units also needed upgrades to make the entire complex begin to sparkle again. We were very impressed that the owner called us directly our first evening to make sure that we had been checked in and that all was satisfactory. Our stay in Manasota Key allowed us to explore the surrounding area.

Wonderful get away!

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely pleased with Sunburst Unit #121. The unit was very clean and well stocked with everything we needed. The beds were very comfortable.

The views from the balcony were amazing and we enjoyed the quiet beach. We enjoyed waking up to the sounds of the waves every morning. We spent many hours on the beach hunting for sharks teeth. We enjoyed the shark tooth sifter that was provided and we left a second one that we had purchased.

We hope to come back again to enjoy this wonderful property!

We have two small children and prefer vacation rentals over hotels. This is possibly our best experience yet! The condo was exceedingly well appointed with everything you need plus convenient little touches like a tooth brush holder that made our stay so much more comfortable. The condo was well cared for, nicely decorated, uncluttered, and the bed was incredibly comfortable. Our older daughter loved the pool and the beach, while my husband and I enjoyed the views of the ocean and the sound of the waves from the master balcony at nap time and after the girls bedtime. The complex was peaceful, the uncrowded beach convenient, and the manager and owner were very accessible. We would definitely consider renting this place again!
