Golf

What better way to spend time in the warm air of Manasota Key than by playing a round or two of golf. There are numerous golf courses in the area that could prove quite a challenge for beginners and experts alike.

Sarasota National Golf Club is one of the more scenic golf courses in the area. This 18-hole course will test your skills, as you will have to navigate numerous water hazards and sand traps in order to achieve a low score. The winds in much of the Florida South Central Gulf Coast are blustery, so keep these conditions in mind before swinging.

This ensures that even first-time golfers have a chance to obtain a low score. The greens are smooth, and the fairways facilitate long drives.

The upstairs two bedroom/two bath unit was so comfortable and I can't remember needing even one item b/c the condo had it all (thanks to the Owners.) (If you stay more than a couple of days though, take some extra paper towels and toilet paper.) It was a tad bit outdated (think '70's), but very clean and the furnishings were nice. But what we really enjoyed every day was the deck across the back of the whole unit! It was not huge, but perfect for 2-4 people. We brought a beach umbrella, but quickly discovered that sitting out on the deck was just as good....no, much better!.....than sitting on a sandy beach. It was a good place to people watch too. :) We stayed out on the deck everyday until the hot sun forced us back inside between 1pm to 6pm, but then we were back out on it until around 11pm. It was so much fun taking pictures of the sunsets and posting on Instagram (made our friends jealous....lol). The natural landscaping around the condo plus Manasota Key and Englewood at large reminded us of the Old Florida (we're in our sixties) and we really appreciated seeing and feeling that type of environment. We found a great little seafood "market" and steamed "boat-run" (e.g. caught that day!) peel and eat shrimp one evening. All in all, it was such an enjoyable mini-vacay......and we hope to go back again next summer.

The pictures are accurate and the convenience to the beach, advantages of having all the "toys" we needed and the perfectly appointed kitchen and baths is incomparable. We spent our days on the uncrowded beach, nights at fabulous restaurants (Farlow's, Landy's, Lock and Key) close by and finished playing games and cards at the table large enough to seat 8 comfortably. All we needed was food, drink and the sun, all of which were in no short supply! Fabulous grills complete with charcoal, all the bikes, and Tommy Bahama backpack beach chairs and rolling coolers were completely unexpected, but appreciated! Thank you Peter and MaryJo for your hospitality, we're planning our 2017 trip already!

Located in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance of the beach. We have stayed in many homes, but this one had the nicest pool, yet. There is plenty of room for swimming, laying out, or just sitting and reading a book. Best of all, it is completely private! There is also a nice grill and eating area outside. They have thought of every thing you might need (i.e. pool toys, beach towels, games, DVD's, books, etc.) to make your stay enjoyable. I also liked the laundry facilities that were available to use. All in all the owners have done a remarkable job of making their guests feel welcomed.
