What a find!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time here! The beaches are pristine and uncrowded, the view from the balcony is stunning and it's interesting every day. A state park is nearby with trails leading to both the bay and the gulf. Inside the unit is spacious, well appointed and very, very quiet. The heated outdoor pool was perfect for stiff muscles after a long walk. We will definitely be back for another relaxing stay!

This is our 5th stay on Manasota Beach and this is by far THE best condo we have stayed in. The whole condo equals the amazing views from the living and master bedroom. The decor is warm and inviting and far exceeds anything else we have stayed in. Rentals do not usually go above and beyond in high end decorating and this condo is very Tommy Bahama influenced. We loved it and will stay again. The only thing I could say is we were disappointed that we did not have access to the owners garage storage unit for beach toys. The chairs etc that were left in front of the assigned parking lot were dirty etc. Other than that we had a great time and didn't want to leave.

But, not perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I agree with all the other 5-star comments. This is a great condo in a good spot on the Gulf. However, we experienced something that was very annoying. This condo does not have screens on the porch... and yes, we were bothered by a variety of insects during our 2-week stay. This is the only unit in the building that doesn't have screens. In fact, in 30 years of renting Gulf-front condos, we have never had another unit that didn't have a screened porch. Everything else is so nice, it's hard to understand why the owner wouldn't invest in screen.

Owner's Response: Yes, it has no screens because I took them out. In the condo building next door, none of the condos have screens.There's almost always a breeze and bugs have never been a problem. The view is so degraded by screens and as it's on the top 4th floor, bugs are rarely a problem. If you're concerned about an occasional bug, you should go elsewhere.

An amazing place

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many top-end accommodations but this is the best you will find. The owner has gone way beyond a more normal holiday let specification and is providing a condo that is clean, superbly equipped with everything you could need, then add some more ... and the whole place really feels like a beach "home". The location is stunning, we watched dolphins every day from our balcony and went swimming in the beautiful gulf sea. Walking distance to several great places to eat, a real estate company who are very effective ... put it all together and this really is the perfect place to stay on the Gulf. An outstanding rental that we recommend without reservation and to which we intend to return.

Manasota Key Beachfront Condo

  • 5 of 5

This spacious three bedroom condo is on the penthouse floor looking out over the beach and ocean with an enclosed patio that spans the entire width of the unit. It is furnished and decorated much nicer than most rentals or even most private homes for that matter. Everything you need is there including a fully equipped kitchen and laundry room. This is without a doubt one of the nicest places I've ever stayed in and I've been a lot of places.

The condo is located on a barrier island that is peaceful and relaxing with an incredibly beautiful beach and with food and shopping nearby. I will stay here again!

Beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

The place was wonderful for relaxing. The wildlife here is wonderful and bountiful, it's nice to see. The condo was comfortable and nicely decorated. The area was great because there aren't any high rise buildings. The area has some restaurants that are in walking distance too! Can't wait to go back!
