Excellent in all respects!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very large, comfortable and well appointed, property in an excellent location within easy reach,walking or by car, of the beach at Manasota Key with its endless walks in both directions, not to mention the finds of fossil sharks teeth! The villa is private at the rear looking onto a pond in which we have seen freshwater turtles, an otter family, frogs, wildfowl and,on a previous stay,an alligator. Beyond that is part of a preserve, fringed by trees.

The villa is very spacious and well appointed and has a very long driveway ensuring that traffic noise from Manasota Beach Road is not an issue. The pool is large and has wide margins with ample seating and eating areas. The air conditioning is very efficient even in the warmest weather.

The villa is within easy reach of a very good range of shops and restaurants taking less than 5 minutes by car and is well placed for access to Englewood and Venice with their fine facilities within a few minutes drive.

Gareth Evans always responds straight away to any issues that might arise to resolve them. We have stayed in other properties owned by him in recent years and feel that Manasota Manor is now our first choice.

This property is highly recommended and we shall be returning once again next year.

A wonderful villa in a wonderful setting!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fantastic week in Lake View Manor.

There were 6 of us in our party and there was more than enough room for everyone - the villa is huge. Our first impressions were 'wow', all our expectations had been met and exceeded. The photos do not do the property justice - it's far better in reality.

The villa was very clean, well equipped and comfortable. The pool are was brilliant, with plenty of space for swimming, barbecuing, chilling and sunbathing. We loved the fact there was all day sunshine, but there were areas in the shade, should you so require.

The view from the villa is beautiful, overlooking a lake/bird sanctuary and we spent many an time sitting on the lanai with a coffee, soaking it all up.

Manasota Beach is really lovely and only a 2 minute drive away. It was a fantastic place to find shark teeth or watch the sunset (spectacular). There is also free parking, toilets and shower facilities.

We did a lot of exploring locally and loved the area.

Within a 10 minute drive, there were an abundance of shops and restaurants to suit all budgets.

We spent the last night on a sunset and dolphin boat cruise which we would highly recommend.

If you are looking for a stunning villa in an equally amazing area, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lake View Manor.

Owner's Response: So glad to read that your family had a fantastic week. It is always difficult to do justice to to a home with photos but maybe it is not a bad thing so that guests get a pleasant surprise as you did.

What a fabulous holiday we had in Florida

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely property. We stayed in the property on Manasota Beach road/ Denison Road, the house was all we could have asked for. It was only myself and husband in the house which was huge for just the two of us. The pool was great fun and the outside area was very private and picturesque. The house had all the amenities we needed. The master bedroom being very comfy.

We felt it was a bit to far to walk to Manasota beach from the house, mainly due to the heat and everything you want to take with you, but there is a handy car park across from the beach. We would definitely recommend this property but you must be prepared to use your car everyday for the beach, shops, restaurants bars etc. We found it was a great base to explore all around the coast, we went from Tampa to Boca Grande and saw some fantastic sights.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your complimentary comments about the house, it is always pleasing to know that all expectations were met. In the summer heat the walk to the beach is a challenge particularly with all the items we provide including chairs, umbrellas etc. Fortunately we have the only beach in the area that offers free parking.

Vacation as it should be!

  • 5 of 5

This year we rented for the fourth time a house from Gareth and Eileen in Manasota Beach. Should I say more?

As experienced in the past the house was everything promised in de description and more, well equipped, clean and well maintained.

Very close, 5 min. away, to the beautiful beach where this time again we saw dolphins swim by. Water temperature was 32 Celcius, and bring your snorkel, there is a lot to see under water.

Simply take the folding chairs from the garage and relax.

From the screened pool area there is a beautiful view to a little pond, a great background for a meal outside, there is sufficient space.

Restaurants and supermarkets are also very close, about 10 min. by car.

A little bit further you will find destinations like the Everglades for an airboat ride, Naples with it's 5th avenue, the Dali museum in St. Petersburg, the Ringling museum in Sarasota and the Ellenton outlets. Do pay a visit to the Venice farmers and arts market every Saturday morning and come back to it's pier in the evening to watch the sunset.

As a landlord Gareth is always prepared to provide maximum care. He even visited us later in the evening to replace a dead battery in a smoke alarm that made itself heard. He lives nearby, very helpful.

This will certainly not be our last visit.

Great vacation house

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our vacation in this beautiful Lake View Manor. Your house had everything we needed for perfect vacation and it felt like home to us.

The kitchen is well stocked with ample cooking/dining equipment, all bedding, towels are provided. The pool was very well maintained and kids loved the pool. The house is clean and well taken care of.

We enjoyed every minute of our vacation in this beautiful house. It is close to the beach where we enjoyed beautiful weather. Manasota beach is a 5 minute drive from a house. Supermarkets and restaurants are 10-15 minute drive.

We loved your house and want to thank you for renting to us. In the future we will consider renting it again and I will definitely recommend this house.

Could not be bettered

  • 5 of 5

We frequently rent in Florida since selling our home there, and I can say without a shadow of doubt that this excellent home is one of the best. Not only are the furnishings and facilities top notch, it is really like "Home from Home" and would be appreciated by any discerning family. It provides a relaxing and quiet position without being isolated, and is a 20 mins walk, or less than 10 mins bike ride to the excellent Manasota beach. To drive takes less than 5 mins, and beach parking is free and there seems to be always room to park. The beach has excellent toilet and changing facilities although there are no shops or concessions at the beach. Nice!!

The home was exceptionally clean on arrival, and everything worked as it should do. The pool and pool area are exceptional with good quality and relaxing patio seating for both realxing and reading or for dining.

There is nothing more to say, except to say that is your looking for a terrific place to stay for either a a week or a month or more, you will not go far wrong with a stay at Lakeview Manor.

I fully recommend this property
