Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at James' Condo was just perfect. The time went by way too fast and we really didn't want to leave but I am sure we will be back. Everything in the condo is new and clean, it has everything you could need and nothing that you don't. It is the perfect amount of space for two people, the heated pool is great, and you are a short drive away from 4 different beaches.

James went above and beyond to make sure that we had everything we needed. He even overnighted us some items that we had forgotten in the condo. If you are looking for a place to stay in the Englewood/Manasota Key area and this condo is available I highly recommend that you stay here. You wont regret it.

Did not want to leave!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay could not have been any better. This efficiency had everything we needed, and was so clean and accommodating. The location was very nice, enjoying Lemon Bay, seeing a dolphin in it!...cooling off in the pool, which was also very clean, with plenty of chairs around it, and then there's the beautiful sunsets from the beach, or from seating in a couple of very nice restaurants right down the road. Perfect! And James, the owner, was super nice, meeting us upon arrival, with suggestions and advice, and then returning our deposit within the first week we were back! Would highly recommend this rental. DID NOT WANT TO LEAVE!

Owner's Response: As an owner my wife and I try to put ourselves in the position of "the renter"...what would we need if we were renting the property? What would we appreciate from a vacation rental owner? It's the little things that add up to BIG things. It is very rewarding when a guest gives you 5 stars! That's our goal with each renter!

Ahhh... Beach Therapy!!

  • 5 of 5
This condo was PERFECT - adorable and had everything I could possibly need to unwind and recharge. I was able to take a stroll with my coffee to get a paper and view the ocean each morning, jog a few miles to bridge or Stump's Pass Beach, bike all around the island (didn't even need the car during my stay!), kayak a few times (got up close to dolphin AND manatee!), fish off the dock (caught quite a few fish - including a HUGE black drum!), and relax in the beautiful pool each evening. It was great to have 3 beaches to choose from, each with their own charm. I liked the option of going out for seafood/burger (just a couple mikes away) or cooking in. I honestly hated to leave! =). I highly recommend this to anyone needing a bit of "beach therapy" - perfect!

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5
Owner met me on arrival. Made sure I had everything I needed for a wonderful vacation. Even gave me a discount for being a Veteran which I genuinely appreciated. Accommodations were great. Pool fantastic. Bay was beautiful. Close proximity to Beaches and Restaurants.Loved that the price included taxes and cleaning. Very reasonable rates. Condo was immaculate. Only thing I could think of to add would be a fishing pole for the beautiful Bayside accommodations. Look forward to returning here next year!

Pristine Gem

  • 5 of 5
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at this lovely studio! The owners are very attentive to every need a guest could have, and then some. I really love that it is situated on the bay. It was so nice at the end of the day to sit on the bench by the dock and watch the sunset. Locals said that manatees and dolphins come into that area of the bay as well—although I didn't stay long enough to see them—maybe you will!

Tiki itself is very nice, and just as quiet as I needed it to be—but still only minutes from the area “night life”, restaurants and beaches. I had read that the pool there was the “best on Manasota Key”, and I think that it was said without exaggeration, it is just heaven. More often than not I had it to myself—but the best part is that it is heated which is fabulous during the chilly nights, just after the sun goes down.

The unit is brand new, as the owners have just completely renovated it, totally gorgeous—custom cabinets with granite countertops, and all-tile floors and more-literally re-done ceiling to floor. The kitchen is so well stocked has nearly everything you could ever want. There is on-site laundry, just steps from the door—OR a new (compact) washer and dryer within the unit as well.

I previously had the pleasure of staying at this unit last year, and it was very nice—but now it is completely beautiful and pristine! I would, without hesitation, return for yet another visit, and recommend either of the units that these friendly, welcoming owners have. Enjoy all that this beautiful area has to offer—while staying at a truly lovely place--I'm glad I did :)

More than adequate

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this well equipped, clean, quiet little condo. We also appreciated James' simple approach to renting (no extra fees) and greeting us at the unit to be sure we knew where everything was and to provide a few suggestions about the area.

We would highly recommend the condo to anyone wanting to visit the area.

From the Owner

Though it is not a big place it is perfect for a get-away for two. Most renters are out and about everyday not sitting inside a vacation rental. I have repeat renters that come from up north that have no problem with the space as they stay multiple months. Its all about value.

From the Owner

We do not charge a cleaning fee and everyone who stays tells us they appreciate that. No one wants to be nickeled and dimed to death with fees. Living nearby year-round we are always quick to respond to any issue if it arises. I am a resident of Englewood/Manasota Key area since 1973 so I am extremely knowledgeable regards to the area.
