Gulf Front condo with all the luxury executive comforts: 3 bedrooms,%u20282.5 baths. Sleeps 8 in bedrooms.
After more than 20 years of sampling the best of what the Gulf Coast of Florida has to offer vacationers, we recently discovered this truly exceptional Gulf of Mexico location: Manasota Key is just off of Englewood, Florida. It is the closest thing we have experienced (after two decades of %u2028roaming) to a quiet, yet active waterfront resort.
This 2,800 square foot 3 bedroom and 2.5 bath condominium sits on one%u2028of the most enjoyable barrier islands Florida has to offer. It is brand new and we have decorated it in the Florida style. The island is quiet, friendly and a place where you can quickly feel at home. Make new friends and acquaintances or hang out on your secluded beach. On Manasota Key you can safely walk, bike and drive along the main island road without congestion.
Most mornings you will find regular walkers on their way to pick up the%u2028morning paper and maybe a cup of coffee at the local store. A few times a year the island is visited by one of the touring triathlons and as you exit your driveway you will see bicyclists coming by on their way to the next segment of the competition.
Good evening, Bob...
Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful, beach-front condo with us. It was so well-appointed that we all felt like we were in a "home-away-from-home". The beach at Boulder Pointe is the most beautiful beach I have seen within the United States. Its appearance reminded me of the remote beaches we have visited in Jamaica. My husband, Scott, and I enjoyed a bottle of wine and magnificent sunsets every evening on the lanai. While in Manasota Key we rented a pontoon and had close-encounters with dolphins near Stump Pass. My husband especially enjoyed searching for shark teeth on the beach. One day we visited Siesta Key...enjoyed lunch at the Daiquiri Bar, did a little shopping, and hung out at the beach. We couldn't have asked for better weather during our stay. Every day was sunny and beautiful with a couple of light rain showers during the early evening hours. One morning we met with a realtor and did some further exploring of the area. We would like very much to purchase a home/condo on or near the key. Perhaps some day we will be neighbors!
We created many wonderful family-memories this past week!
