Karen purchased this condo in 2012

Why Karen chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We were married in 2004 on the beach. We are pictured here in a nearby bunch of bananas, just one of the unique tropical trees in the area. When unit 22D became available in early 2012, we knew we had found our seaside treasure. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We cannot say enough about this great location. We stayed in 22D, right up front and overlooking the pool. Convenient to everything.



The unit was clean, VERY nice without being so luxurious that you felt you could not touch anything. Everything worked, was fully supplied and easy to find and use.



The beach is SO close and easy to get to and clean and gorgeous. Turtle nests everywhere, saw dolphins in the water and collected dozens of shark teeth. Played in the surf, walked the beach, loed it all. Visited Venice, Ft. Myers, Sanibel, still like this beach the most. Three really good and convenient places to eat and drink, a fun local theater group let us sit in on a dress rehearsal for their upcoming production. Went to Rum Bay for lunch, GREAT trip.



And all of this the same week as a tropical storm! WE WILL be back!

Beautiful Beach and Great Memories

  • 5 of 5

Great Condo..... We spent 3 wonderful weeks with family. We booked 2 weeks but really wasn't ready to come home. We were able to book another week. It is very well equipped with everything you need. We loved how it overlooked the pool (which seemed like a private one). We spent every day on the beautiful beach and evenings in the pool. My grandkids loved it. Ages 7 & 5. They loved riding the boogie boards (provided by condo). If you like shelling & shark teeth hunting.....it's paradise. We found plenty and my son found a huge one. This was our first time staying on the Gulf side since we are only 3 hours from Atlantic Beaches. The Sunsets are absolutely breathtaking. We were use to seeing sunrises on our beaches. We visited several other beaches like Siesta Keys (pretty sandy beach but way too crowded) We also, went to Blind Pass Beach which is also on the Manasota Key Island. The memories we made will last a Lifetime. We will definitely be returning. Although a 12 1/2 hour drive for us, we still loved it. Maybe fly down next time. The stairs was rough for me since I have bad knees but family took care of that. I made one trip down and they carried everything. :) can't say enough about how awesome this condo is. Thank you Karen for sharing your condo with us.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your great comments and I am so pleased that you and your family had such a good time. Castaways is such as fantastic place and the beach is amazing. I would like a picture of the large shark tooth to post on the website as well. I found one last summer that nearly fills the palm of my hand and is just over 2" long. It washed ashore shortly after a windy day and was just lying in the sand at the waters edge! So much fun. Hope you are able to return next summer, just let me know. Thanks again! Best, Karen

Pleasantly Surprised. We Will Definitely be Back!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the perfect vacation at the Castaways. From the very beginning, the owner (Karen), was a pleasure to talk to. She ensured our reservation and all of our questions were answered the same day we made our first inquiry. When we arrived, the condo was just as described. It was clean, spacious and decorated nicely. I guess what I am trying to say is that you felt like you were on vacation in a friend or families beach house…. (Not in a sterile rental property). The only issue during the stay was that a past tenant had lost the bottom portion of the condos beach umbrella. I notified Karen via text, and she had a brand new umbrella waiting for us when we got up the next morning! The area is beautiful and there are plenty of places to eat and pick up things within easy walking distance. The beach was excellent. Not crowded at all. We saw a few sea turtles at night and plenty of shark teeth were found. I think the final count was 700 + shark teeth fossils found. About ½ were found sifting through sea shells and the other half snorkeling right off the beach. We will definitely be back and highly recommend this condo.

I was very disappointed with this condo. I asked for beachfront and this condo is located as far away from the beach as possible! The complex is beachfront but not this unit. It is actually on the road, and at night you can hear road traffic! Once you get to the beach it is nice, but once again it is not close to the beach. I feel the cost of the condo is not appropriate for the location, I was paying for beachfront and did not get what I was paying for.

Owner's Response: The listing details are very clear and very accurate. The condo overlooks the pool and has wonderful views of the Gulf of Mexico from the decks. Just outside the door is the pool and the short path to the beach. There are numerous reviews of this condo, all 5 stars, and guests come back time and time again. We take great pride is offering a well appointed, highly updated condo with all of the amenities one would expect for a beach vacation. Englewood Beach is a fabulous vacation destination and we appreciate every guest that visits.

Great Week at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

If you want a peaceful, fun-filled week, this is the place for you. The condo was exactly as describe, only better. Every little convenience was addressed from kitchenware to hair dryers. This condo is only steps from a gorgeous beach that is almost private. There were many sea turtle nests on the beach for those nature enthusiasts. It is close to some wonderful restaurants...even walking distance to some. If you are looking for a quiet getaway, this is the place for you.

Great little condo!

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I rented this condo for a week - me looking for a break from the Canadian winter and her looking into be closer the the beach (she lives in Placida) for a week. Leading up to our arrival we were kept well-informed, given lots of help planning our arrivals and departures, and felt very secure sharing our contact and financial information.

The condo is furnished in traditional Florida style and the bedrooms and bathrooms were as a described (master bed and bath are spacious, second bed and bath are smaller). The deck was lovely and we enjoyed eating both breakfast and dinner outside every day. When local friends can to visit, there was more than enough space to entertain. The deck overlooked the pool and toward the beach and setting sun, so we had beautiful views to end our day.

The area surrounding the condo is one of its best features - there is a short walkway to the AMAZING Englewood Beach and beach yoga is hosted only steps away most days. The ocean is lovely and each morning the fishermen come out to take advantage of the water. There are often dolphins swimming just offshore and the combination of sand, surf and sun is refreshing. We tried to do something new every day - paddle boarded, jet skiied, kayaked and biked - and the sights were amazing.

I would recommend this property to families with children and friends traveling as a group, but not to those with mobility issues - there is a large staircase to the main door and those who have trouble with stairs will find this condo difficult.
