About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, 4 Sleeps

Escape to "Margaritaville"... A Charming DIRECT Beachfront condo on Manasota Key. (Unit 15C - This is NOT a Peek-a-Boo gulf view)

Along southwest Florida's spectacular sapphire coastline, in the midst of breath taking sugar sand

beaches, sparkling clear waters & world class amenities, there remains a rare jewel. An unspoiled

sanctuary of secluded beaches, caressed by the warm gulf breezes and dazzling sunsets. An island

where the pace of life moves with the rhythm of the tides.

Come and explore Manasota Key.

Our condo is a direct Gulf front unit. We are in the beautiful Castaways Condominiums. The complex

boasts a unique, south seas Tiki Hut design.

Bright, clean & sunny, our condo was recently decorated with a cheerful, "At The Beach" decor. We

have a fantasic covered, open air lanai. Rain or shine, you can relax on the lanai. You'll love your private FRONT ROW seats to spectacular views of the beach. Your spirit will go "ahhh....."

Sunsets are breathtaking and if you are an early riser..... take in the quiet serenity of the

sunrise over Manasota Key.... you, the sea gulls and some dolphins are all that will stir the air at that moment... makes you inspired by the beauty of it all....

We are located within 1 -2 blocks of excellent restaurants, a convenience store, gift shops, pizza shop, & Tiki Bar.

* Additional pictures of the condo will be emailed upon request*

Guestbook comments from the owner

My best friend and I stayed in this unit (15C) for five nights in mid July 2011. The condo is truly gulf front with a nice, large covered deck. The deck has four chairs and a big table. The unit is furnished in a fun, "beachy" theme and very clean. The king size bed - SUPER COMFY!! The kitchen is fully stocked and has just about anything you might need and a nice large fridge. There is no dishwasher but that really did not present a problem; we just washed up a few things as we needed. Having a washer and dryer in the unit allowed us to go home with all clean clothes. Bathroom is about the size you would expect in a 1BR and more than enough towels to last our entire stay. Everything turned out perfect for us! It is nice and quiet and excellent shelling.

Our favorite vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on Manasota Key and we thank you for sharing your darling condo & beautiful island with us. The condo had everything that we needed to make our vacation relaxing and convenient. Being able to walk to all the restaurants was so great! We are looking forward to another stay at Castaways (15C) and we are hoping that it will be very soon.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a great time. One of our favorite things to do is eat breakfast on the lanai in the morning & watch the dolphins swim past our shoreline. I hope you were able to see a lot of dolphins and manatees during your stay. There's no better place than Manasota Key to vacation!

The great escape!

This is the 4th year in a row we have come back to this darling condo for a two month stay. We love this condo, it is so sun filled & very clean inside. It has everthing we need. The gulf views here are incredible. The heated pool on the property is really nice. The location of the complex is so convenient to everything. This is a beautiful setting - very low key.
