About Joanne Colabella

Joanne and Paul currently live in NJ, and in the future are looking forward to spending more time in Florida.

We first got acquainted with Manasota Key in 2002. We vacationed in the area, and have come to love the relaxing quietness of the Key. The friendliness of the people, peacefulness of the bay, the abundance of wildlife, and the terrific sunsets have made Manasota Key one of our favorite places.

Joanne Colabella purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Joanne Colabella chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We love the location of the Shoreview Beach House, a quick walk to Stump Pass and nearby restaurants, bars, marinas and a few small shops.

When we are in town, we love to grill on the beach, fish, and take long walks collecting shells.

What makes this apartment unique

We love the views at the Shoreview Beach house. Each unit has an open floor plan that has terrific views of the Gulf of Mexico. We love being on the water, it has a relaxing, peaceful lure. We especially love watching the wildlife right on the beach - pelicans diving for fish, dolphins playing and an abundance of birds.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 days at this home and it was perfect. The house was a little small for 2 Couples but it was very clean, well equipped and right ON the beach! It was hot but the water was warm, beautiful, and clear-we were hardly ever inside! We saw Dolphins, manatees and the loggerhead turtles were nesting so we talked with the volunteers about that. The tarpon were running and we could easily see the boats fishing right from shore. We could walk to restaurants! A perfect getaway. Thanks Joanne.

Beautiful clean vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place on the beach. Great location, close to everything, yet far enough away from the public beaches to feel like you have your own private place on the beach. Clean, spacious, amazing views. We vacation in Englewood every year, & this is now our favorite!

Our family had an amazing time on Manasota key. We rented unit A and couldn't believe how close we were to the beach! The condo was very clean, and condusive to our young families needs! The view was spectacular, and ammenities such as the washer and dryer in the unit were much appreciated. We enjoyed walking the beach every morning finding lots of shark teeth. We will definitely be going back! Thanks joanne!

Awesome Ocean View!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first home rental for my husband and I and Joanne's condo exceeded our expectations! The location was perfect and we had a hard time leaving the beautiful ocean view, especially when we were able to sit outside on the 2nd floor deck. The condo was comfortable and met all of our needs. Having the washer/dryer in the unit was also very convenient. We would definitely consider staying here again. Thanks Joanne!
