About Stanley Kowalski

I am an Entrepreneur and Engineer in Massachusetts. My parents live in Venice.

Stanley Kowalski purchased this condo in 2004

Why Stanley Kowalski chose Englewood

I decided on this location because it's quiet and beautiful. Getting to the island and beaches is fast and easy. Lemon Bay is fantastic for boating and fishing. Very hard to find a Gulf to Bay location as ideal as this!!

What makes this condo unique

It's peacful and beautiful, puts me in a relaxed zen like state. Walking to the Beach, Bay,or Restaurants is easy. Flounder's Restaurant (WiFi) is right next door. It's owned by Simon Dumont, the famous X-Games Ski champion. He is there often. They have an oudoor beach setting with Volleyball, Horse Shoes, a pier for boats and Florida's finest drinks and food, RIGHT NEXT DOOR!!

Good value

  • 4 of 5

A nice condo, well situated, close to both bay and the Gulf. It could benefit greatly from just a few more amenities.

Needs TLC

  • 3 of 5

Condo was OK, but needs a lot of TLC. Broken screens, locks and blinds. Lamps with burned out bulbs. Dishwasher not working and kitchen is in bad shape, broken draws and slides. Labels so old can't read them. Outside unit not swept. Couple of wrong pictures in web site.

Would need work for us to return.

Needs updated and repaired

  • 3 of 5

The location of this property is great. Beyond that, it's not so great! The sliding door to the patio was broke so we could not even lock the door or even latch it for that matter. The dishwasher was broke, which the owner did inform me about. The property suited us for the few nights that we were in town for a wedding, but I would not recommend for an extended stay. Bed was very uncomfortable too!

Excellent Location and Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Second time staying at El Galeon East very nice and centrally located. Had the pleasure of meeting the owner and his father during our stay. They were updating the security measures and technology during our stay, gracious hosts.

Older property but, clean

  • 3 of 5

Needed small repairs that would make a difference. Owner called to let me know that the internet, cable and dishwasher didn't work with no offer of a discount. Lucky for us, it was beautiful and none of that was needed during our short 2 night stay.

El Galeon East is a great place for fishermen.

  • 4 of 5

I was very pleased with the accommodations. Dawn was a great help throughout our stay. There were minimal issues limited to the wrong code for the key box and not having cable; a $8 antenna remedied that for my woman.
