A lovely condo directly on the Gulf of Mexico, ground floor (no steps), beach condominimum (only 4 units in building). The perfect place for a beach vacation.
Walk right out of the unit onto Manasota Key Beach on the Gulf of Mexido. Spend your days sunning, swimming, walking the white sandy beach, shelling and collecting fossilized shark teeth.
Fish all day from the shore; watch dolphins at play and pelicans dive for fish.
At the end of the day enjoy fabulous sunsets over the Gulf Of Mexico while relaxing on the deck. Fall asleep to the sound of the lapping waves and fresh sea breezes.

My husband and I spent a wonderful winter month here and because of the location this condo would be great any time of the year. It has plenty of room for two people. Sleeping four would be no problem as long as having only one bathroom works for you. Appliances all worked well and the new air conditioner and new carpeting are pluses. Closet, dresser and cabinet space is good. The screened-in lanai, although not facing the ocean, is a good shaded place to dine and good for storing bulky items. We loved the large windows across the ocean side of the condo! You get an ocean view from the kitchen, living room, bedroom and the bright dining area next to the windows. With windows open you can have a beautiful breeze and the sounds of the waves hitting the shore.
We loved spending as much time as possible outside and steps from the door is a nice size deck where we would watch for dolphins while having breakfast. We also enjoyed sunsets from either the deck or the beach, which is a couple steps from the deck. It is so convenient to be so close to your condo when fishing, sunning, shelling, swimming or just sitting on the beach. You can also walk the beach either North or South for a couple miles. Two parking spots are provided and we had enough room to park our small boat and trailer.
The owners are very prompt in communications, very quick to respond to any problems and very friendly.
We can't wait to come back!
While this unit could use some updating and color, it had everything we needed! It was clean, comfortable and roomy enough for my family of 4. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and utensils. There were more than enough bath towels and some beach towels. The king size bed was very comfortable! We slept like babies! The most amazing part is the beach! Just a few steps out your back door and you're on the beach! This beach is loaded with shells and shark's teeth! We sifted with the colanders that were provided at the condo and found tons of shark's teeth! My son was thrilled! The deck was awesome, especially for sunsets! The grill worked just fine for our skewered shrimp and veggies! She outside shower was a Godsend. The location was great. A trip to town to get groceries or whatever is very convenient. The only thing I can complain about is that the laundry facilities are shared between the 4 condos in the building and is coin operated, but was still nice to have that available. The listing here on VRBO was accurate. The owners/managers were great and helpful! I would absolutely recommend this place. It's not the Taj Mahal, not the nicest place in town. But if you're on a budget, it's worth every last penny! No regrets from us! We plan to go back.
