Manasota Key Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-8),

Along southwest Florida's spectacular sapphire coastline, in the midst of breathtaking sugar sand beaches, sparkling clear waters there remains a rare jewel……. a beach retreat caressed by gulf breezes and dazzling sunsets.

In the beautiful Castaways Condominiums your vacation paradise awaits you at unit #12-C. Open the door walk out onto your private wood-decked lanai, just four steps down to the landscaped walkway, and within 50 feet you reach miles and miles of uninterrupted beach.

Sunsets are breathtaking and if you are an early riser..... take in the quiet serenity of the sunrise over Manasota Key.... you, the sea gulls and some dolphins are all that will stir the air at that moment... makes you inspired by the beauty of it all....

Bright, sunny, well-appointed condo is two bedroom, two bath having a master bedroom with queen size bed with private bath, large 2nd bedroom with a queen size bed and twin size bed, fully furnished eat-in kitchen, large living area facing the Gulf that includes a queen size sofa/sleeper and Lazy-boy recliner. The unit was recently decorated and furnished with a cheerful, 'At The Beach' decor.

We have a fantastic covered, open air lanai. Rain or shine, you can relax. You'll love your private FRONT ROW seats to spectacular views of the Gulf. Your spirit will go 'Ahhh.....'

Why Gene Sapinski chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Having come to Englewood Beach for many years with the children was a life's dream for Janet to be relaxing on the beach, hear the waves at night after taking-in a long, most-beautiful sunset. Then awake early in the morning with coffee in hand walking the low-tide surf collecting sharks teeth. Our unit is a rare treasure......A dream come true!

Very relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for a week and had a wonderful relaxing vacation before our teenage children went back to school. Englewood is conveniently located between Sarasota and Ft. Myers. The condo was comfortable and perfectly located between the pool and beautiful beach. The condo was fully equiped and clean. We spent our time at the pool in the mornings, had lunch on the deck with a view of the ocean, and then spent the afternoon on the beach. To top off the day, my husband and I watched the sun set as we sipped wine on the deck, and then our family walked across the street for dinner. Several great restaurants are within walking distance. A great place to stay for a perfect beach vacation! We would definitely stay there again.

Great time on the Gulf!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent four (4) terrific days with my three sons on a golf trip at this unit. I highly recommend staying at this unit which had every amenity that we needed. It was roomy, extremely clean and a few feet away from the Gulf. Ideal for our group and especially for a family vacation. I would give it a FIVE (5) STAR rating!! Definitely going back. And try the pizzeria down the street, it was as awesome as the condo.

Next to Hawaii favorite vacation

  • 5 of 5

As a property owner here in Englewood we decided we wanted a beach vacation. Knowing how wonderful the Englewood area is we decided to vacation on our own beach. Not for one moment did we regret our decision. This unit has everything you need. The beach is spectacular and for those not fond of ocean swimming the pool offers a fabulous retreat from the sun and sand.

OMG awesome! Disappointed that it is already rented during Easter break next year because we would certainly come back!!

The Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

My family and I cannot say enough good things about this rental. It has one of the best views onto the Florida beaches and out into the Gulf of Mexico. The beds are comfortable and the furnishings are perfect for a beach getaway. The unit is within walking distance of several great restaurants and shops in case you don't plan to use a car. There is reasonably-priced taxi service to airports in Sarasota, Ft. Meyers, and a few others. One of our favorite things about coming to this place is the ease we have in dealing with the owner. He is always responsive, polite, and helpful--this has not always been the case with some of our vacation rentals. We now plan annual trips to the place and look forward to each coming visit right after we get back home. We also like the furnishings--some of which have been updated from the posted photos--and the convenience of high quality laundry machines in the unit. Finally, Englewood, FL is a hidden gem. Aside from eateries, there are many boutiques, chain stores, and boat/jet ski rental places. Parasailing and fishing boat trips can be booked blocks away from the unit. We wholeheartedly recommend this vacation rental!
