Discover one of the best-kept secrets in Southwest Florida, the quiet, uncrowded beauty of Manasota Key, an enchanting barrier island off the coast of Englewood where there are no traffic lights, or high-rises, just a two lane road and some of the nicest beaches you could find anywhere. In February, we had a storm and right now our beach access is all messed up. We hope by next season the new steps and access will be repaired. Our newly remodeled unit has all the amenities you could possibly need for a relaxing beach vacation, from the large heated pool, the wonderfully landscaped grounds, even a sauna.
In front of your own under building parking, is a large storage closet with 2 bicycles, fishing poles, beach chairs, bogie boards, and other sand toys for little ones.
In the condo itself, you will find a very comfortable living room area that will quickly feel like home. The whole condo features cool tile floors and modern furniture with a tropical 'feel' to make your Florida vacation feel exactly right.
You can open the doors into the lanai to expand your living space with a large table and seating for dinner, card games, margaritas or what ever suits you, while enjoying the expansive view of the gulf. There are several wonderful choices for dining both on the key and within just a few miles. The local restaurants are fun and reasonably priced.
Sorry there is a two week minimum booking required by the condo association, except for one week during Easter and Christmas.

We are both teachers and love to spend time in the summer in our beach condo, ( I know, really weird to leave Iowa and spend the summer in Florida) we have a new grandbaby living in the Fort Myers area and this is the perfect way to visit for longer periods of time without driving our kids nuts.
Jim or Jean purchased this condo in 2011
We have vacationed in Florida for 30 years and have been coming back to Manasota Key for the last ten years. This is such a special place, that when the opportunity to purchase our condo came up, it didn't take us long to decide it was for us.
We love to ride the bikes in the morning, followed by long walks on the beach in the afternoons. Sitting on the lanai, listening to the restful sound of the ocean waves, reading a good book is a perfect end to a glorious day.
The beach is incredibly beautiful, and is not packed like some beaches we have visited. The condo has beach chairs, umbrella and sand toys. The storage under the condo also has 2 bicycles to ride. Thanks for a great experience.
My husband and I chose to stay at this wonderful beach condo on gorgeous Manasota Key for a vacation getaway. We were so impressed by everything about this condo, from the professional and warm dealings with the owners, the gorgeous and comfortable condo, and the beautiful beach it sits on. This vacation allowed us to relax and enjoy the many things there were to do. There are boat, kayak, and jet ski rentals in the area, just to name a few. We loved using the bicycles, included with the unit, to cruise around the island. We were able to pick from the great selection of restaurants, that were just a mile up the road, for lunch and dinners with and without musical entertainment. We felt there was something for everyone. We enjoyed countless hours on the beach, swimming, floating, and watching amazing sunsets. Every sunset was so unique and breathtaking! We would then head to the pool to continue enjoying our 'fun in the sun.' When we were ready to get out of the sun, we would escape to the condo, which offered us a comfortable and well-equipped "home away from home" feel with a beautiful view of the ocean from the lanai. I would recommend this condo to anyone looking for a great vacation. We are hoping to be able to return to it in the near future!
We've spent Jan. and Feb. 2014 & 2015 here and look forward to coming back again next year. We have enjoyed countless sunsets and walks on the beach. Fun tennis, golf, bike rides and just relaxing with a good book on the beach. The unit has most everything you could want, plus... the Lock & Key(restaurant) just down the road. It's been a great get away from winter for the two of us.
Stayed here over the Christmas Holiday. It is a very well kept condo just steps from a great beach. It was so nice to have the bikes and the beach chairs. Nothing to do but shell and enjoy the scenery. Oh, very close to good restaurants as well.
We stayed at this condo during March 2012. This place have everything. We loved having the
nice bikes to ride around Manasota Key. The wi-fi is excellent. The condo is neat and tastefully
furnished. There are 4 good restaurants within walking distance.
We are coming back again next year.

My husband and I spent 6 weeks in this condo and enjoyed every minute. The condo had everything that we needed for a comfortable stay. We were so happy to have wi-fi and new flat screens in the living area and bedroom. We loved walking everywhere on the key as well as having such wonderful access to the beach. We found this beach to be very interesting. It has a natural beauty and is very uncrowded. We spent hours shelling and collecting sharks teeth. We hope to return to this location next year.
