Guestbook comments from the owner

We traveled from Knoxville, Tenn. & rented this very nice condo for 10 days. We brought our boat along for our vacation. It was so nice to have the boat slip just outside our patio window. Our boys did a lot of wake boarding & fishing while there. The condo was exactly as described, very clean & well maintained. The views overlooking the water are just beatuiful. The entire complex, pool & grounds are very very nice. The short walk across the street to the gulf beach was convenient for the whole family. We would give our stay a 5 star rating.

Awesome Family Vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this wonderful condo for the last 2 weeks of Oct. The unit was very clean, well furnished & made us feel completely at home. This complex is walking distance to all the restaurants on Manasota Key, which was a huge plus for us. Our family spent many hours beach combing together which was great! This is a wonderful place to make lasting memories. We plan to return to this condo again next year and also rent a boat for at least a week during our stay.

Beautiful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's first vacation on Manasota Key & it will not be the last! We loved staying in this lovely condo. The unit & grounds were outstanding. They had everything we needed. My husband enjoyed fishing with our grandson from the docks every night too. Great memories were made. This location on the island is the BEST! Convenient to everything. 5 Stars!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I must agree that the condo & grounds at the complex are wonderful! Fishing from the docks is so much fun, especially at night. Did you see any sea horses or shrimp swim by the lights that shine into the water off the docks? I hope you & your grandson enjoyed the spectacular beach as well!

Perfect family vacation spot.

  • 5 of 5

We had the best family vacation ever! The kids loved the pool & fishing on the docks. The beach is right across the street, which was great. The condo was very clean & had everything we needed. The location is perfect. We could walk to dinner every night. We will be back next year.

Condo 15C is a very bright and cheerfully decorated unit. The covered lania makes even the hottest afternoons, the perfect spot to be out of the sun for a while, but not miss seeing everything happening on the beach!
