About Jack Hudkins

Our family purchased the condominium in July of 2012. We have another condo in Punta Gorda and love Southwest FL. We have been looking for a place on the beach when we found this unit. Our family enjoys vacationing in SW FL because there is so much to do and you don't have to do anything to enjoy it.

Why Jack Hudkins chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

You won't find a better value with a location like this. A very short walk will put you right on the beach. Everything you need to have a great trip is here. Many restaurants are within a 10 minute walk. A beach canopy and ice chest are provided in the storage closet along with boogie boards. Great place to search for shark teeth and shells. A covered parking spot will keep you vehicle cool and protected. The pool is heated and has a beautiful view of the bay.

What makes this condo unique

Privately owned with care and touch noticeable in the decor and furnishing however onsite manager available to help with any problems. Plus you can be on the beach in minutes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great beach condo, you are practically on the beach. The condo is very well equipped with everything you could need for an extended stay. Kitchen is as nice as the pictures. Eating seats 4 around the table and 2 by the bar. We were 5. Grandma, 2 kids and us and we fit great. One more would have fit on the trundle. The kids obviously wanted the sleeper sofa in the living room (with the large flat screen) while grandma got her privacy.

The pool across the road by the bay side was heated. Kids loved that in January.

Will definitely come back if we head to Fort Myers area next time.

Thanks Jack, and thanks for excellent communications!

Great location on a beautiful and quiet beach.

  • 5 of 5

The condo had everything we needed for our stay. We had 2 adults and 2 children. The size of the condo was perfect for our family. It was nice that the kids each had a their own bed and their own sink and toilet area. The location was perfect. While on the beach we could see that Englewood beach was really crowded, but the beach area in front of the condo was nice and quiet with plenty of room for everybody. We went out one day exploring other beaches, but quickly realized that we had the perfect spot right in front of the condo and there was no need to go anywhere else. We did go out to eat a few times. The food at Flounders was delicious. If you want to try a local restaurant that is close to the condo, I would recommend eating there.

One thing I want to mention is that when we arrived we were not able to pull into the parking space because we had a cargo holder on top of our minivan. We ended up parking across the street in one of the few spots available for parking with a pass. One day when we returned from dinner all of the parking pass spots (2 or 3) were full, so we had to take the cargo holder off of the minivan. When we took it off and parked underneath the unit, we didn't realize just how low the clearance was and the back of the van ended up hitting the ceiling when we opened it. I just wanted to mention this so that potential renters will know ahead of time that there is very low clearance in the parking area under the condo.

The owners were quick to respond to any questions that I emailed to them. I hated to leave but we had to cut our trip short due to tropical storm Colin. We will definitely go back and stay there again.

Great Stay for Memorial Day Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Condo was great for my mom, myself, and two kids! The condo is great...especially kitchen and plenty of room for everyone. Master bed was very comfy and my son slept great on the daybed. Even with a pretty full complex for the holiday there is plenty of room for everyone on beach and at pool. The beach equipment was especially great not having to worry about bringing it with us. Beach was so close it was easy to go back and forth to room.

Great condo and location. Bed was a little too fluffy. Other than that we will stay there again. Had a great few days. Love the community and quiet beach.

We arrived to an immaculate unit , nicely decorated with everything we needed for our stay. We stayed on the Bay side by the pool and kids loved it. We stayed off season and most days had the pool to ourselves. Every night we walked the beach and collected shells. Next time we will plan a longer stay! We highly recommend this place!

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay on Manasota Key. This condo was steps away from the beach and the bayside. We even saw manatees in the bay off the dock. It was also walking distance to bars and restaurants. It was nicely decorated and had everything we needed. Would definitely stay again!
