Fabulous villa!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in this villa. It was spotless when we arrived, we have stayed in others in the past which have not quite appeared as portrayed on line, but Manasota Manor had everything we needed for our stay. We loved the pool area and the journey to the beach was 5 minutes, with everything we needed being stored in the garage.

The only minor issue was that some of the cushions on the pool furniture were a little worn but it didn't spoil our holiday - we would love to go back.

Owner's Response: Glad to read that you had a great stay and that the home is as good if not better than portrayed on our HomeAway listing. All the seating and cushions were new late last summer with the exception of a couple provided for the sun loungers. We will certainly look at those when our present guests leave.

Often when you choose a rental online, sight unseen, you are taking an expensive risk. We just returned from 2 weeks in this lovely home. Description and photos just don't do justice to this retreat. Our grandchildren joined us for a week and thoroughly enjoyed their own rooms and the awesome pool. In less than 2 minutes we were at Manasota Beach. The home was spotless and amenities were as described. Gareth was very personable and fun to speak with. We will not hesitate to return!

Manasota Manor is "home away from home" for us!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Manasota Manor for the past 6 years and find it well appointed, spacious, private and always exceptionally clean. It's conveniently located to both the beach and shopping. Our grandkids love the pool and quick access to the beach. Gareth and Eileen are professional and friendly at the same time - they are quick to respond to any issues that crop up. Great place and we highly recommend it!

Owner's Response: My wife and I work hard to set a standard in all our personally owned rental homes which we always hope will be appreciated. It gives us great satisfaction to know we have achieved our aim when guests return to us year after year to what they feel is a 'home from home'

Great vacation villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent 3 fabulous weeks in this villa.The property sits well back off the road, and with the pool area not overlooked, this gives the villa the feeling of total privacy.

The layout and decor are lovely, with ample room for 2 families to stay.The music system allows you to listen in all bedrooms, kitchen and the pool area. Great idea.

This is a great location for access to the beach which is about 3 minutes drive away,shops are 10 minutes away on US41 and I-75 only 15 minutes away.

Gareth has been very helpful during our stay, right down to the nice little welcome pack,just what is needed after long journey.

I have no hesitation in recommending this or any other of Gareths properties for your next Florida vacation.

Great Stay at Manasota Manor

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this well maintained spacious home. The layout was great for all, very clean and well equipped. My boys enjoyed the pool. We were close to all we wanted to do with shopping, beaches and state parks. Lots of birds in the many trees surrounding the home. The owner was pleasant and made us feel at home. We highly recommend this home to all considering a trip to South Venice.We will definitely be returning to this lovely home, hopefully sooner than later. Thanks , from all the Hunt Family!
