Great location!

Date of Stay:

Very cute place! Soft bed sheets and towels. Loved the location! Great views of the bay to watch all the activities. Loved all the birds and even caught a small glimpse of a manatee. Walking distance to bars and restaurants. Nice to listen to the music from your patio. You can walk to the beach right across the street and hunt for shark teeth! Would love to return!

Great Beach Get Away

Date of Stay:

Outstanding views of Lemon Bay while also having a very short walk to beautiful Gulf of Mexico beaches. Condo offered almost anything you would want for a one or two week stay at the beach. Excellent facilities for docking a boat within a few feet of the condo. Beautiful state park about 1 mile away. We would strongly recommend this property to a friend or relative and can't wait for our next visit.

If there were 6 stars - this place would get it!!

Date of Stay:

We absolutely love this place! The harbor on one side and a very, very short walk across the street to the Gulf. Immaculately clean. Pleasantly decorated. Comfortable bed. Quiet. Convenient (walking distance) to excellent restaurants and live music. Super management team! Every request responded to immediately. Walking distance to Stump Pass Park where you'll watch the dolphins play and find sea-life and shells and sharks teeth. Morning beach yoga a 5 minute walk away. What else could you possibly want? This was our second visit and I wouldn't stay anywhere else in the area (except maybe the other condo they manage in El Galeon East). :-)

Beyond a doubt,one of the best vacations!

Date of Stay:

This was our second time at this beautiful unit for vacation and won't be the last. Everything was just delightful and perfect for our stay again!The spacious unit was clean and well maintained for our vacation. My wife and myself are looking forward to being there again next year.

Wonderful Stay

Date of Stay:

My wife and i stayed in this apartment for two weeks in November 12th to 25th,First of all we had lovely weather, always helps, The apartment met all our expectations, very clean nice modern kitchen new appliances bathroom had good size walk in shower no tub but that was fine for us,The views from the balcony were fabulous overlooking the bay great at breakfast time, or any time . John made the booking process very easy, and Joe and Carol very nice people to deal with on site, The apartment as well as all of Manasota Key felt very safe even at night when walking home from one the many bars and resturants all within 5/10 min walk, saying that it remains a very quiet area, Nice pool area , lovely beach across the road, hoping to return some time in the not to distance future to this lovely part of "Old Florida".

Return Visit: Just as Great as the First!

Date of Stay:

This was a return visit to Bay Breeze for my husband and I. We were just as impressed this time around as we were a year ago. Notable improvements made over the past year include a simplified "check-in" procedure that was a whole lot easier on us, the guest/vacationers; and the addition of beach chairs for use by the guests. It made all the difference in the world to be able to sit comfortably at the beach versus being on a beach towel on the ground. This unit has to have THE most beautiful views, looking over Lemon Bay, as it is a corner unit -- the sunrises are phenomenal. Convenience abounds in that you can walk to just about anything you need. We did a 'true relaxation vacation' this time around since it was a return visit, and loved it. We'll be back!

Heaven in Manasota Key

Date of Stay:

My family and I have been vacationing at El Galeon for over 15 years. We have stayed in various units but until this past year this unit was owner occupied. This year we were able to book here and I have to say it is AMAZING. It is the nicest of the units we have ever stayed in. It is updated, clean and has the most beautiful views. There is nothing like sitting on the balcony in the morning or after a day at the pool/beach and watching the dolphin play right in front of you or the manatee play around at the piers. The nice thing about staying here is the location. You are only 1-1/2 - 3 hrs from either Busch Gardens, Disney, or Miami if you choose to do a little venturing out. I have to say that we did not do that this trip because we enjoyed the pool and the beach and fishing right off the docks. The owner was a great person to deal with and even though he is in a different state he went out of his way to make sure that all went smoothly with our vacation. If you are traveling to Manasota Key Florida you should definitely make it a point to stay in this unit because I know that this will be out new yearly vacation unit!!!!

Beautiful room and location!

Date of Stay:

My family and I stayed for a week for our summer vacation. We could not have asked for a better time! The room was very clean, comfortable, and beautiful. Our balcony overlooked the boat docks so we had a beautiful view from sun up to sun down. The room was very close to the pool but quiet and private as well. Manatees swam up to the dock our first night and all the kids were able to pet them. We went boating and tubing down Ski Alley, played at the sand bar near Stump Pass, saw Dolphins, and fished throughout the week. We could not have asked for a more enjoyable week. We definitely were not ready to come home!

Thank you for a fabulous vacation!

Date of Stay:

This condo has the most amazing views, I can't really describe it to do it justice. Even on the one stormy day we had, no boats in the bay meant lots of dolphins & to sit on the lanai and watch them was really special. The location was ideal for us, Manasota Key is beautiful and the beach was right across the road. I'm a yoga fan and never missed a yoga session on the beach. We were also able to walk out and get food or drinks without having to get the car out and not worry about having an extra cocktail or beer (or 2). Also the owners timely responses to queries was reassuring. We enjoyed it so much it was everything we'd hoped it would be, and the weather was amazing. We have many memories to treasure, certainly hope to be back and definitely recommend the condo and the area to anyone.

Beautiful Condo, Great Location

Date of Stay:

My husband and I enjoyed our stay. The views of Lemon Bay were fantastic. We enjoyed watching the boaters, the sea creatures, and the fisherman. Very comfortable for two people. Beautifully furnished. John was great to work with.

Just what we hoped for and much more

Date of Stay:

My husband and I were looking for a winter trip to the west coast of Florida where we had not been. Friends suggested Englewood Beach. We googled VRBO and we're lucky enough to find this terrific condo. We spent 10 wonderful days and have already booked for next year. The condo is roomy, clean, decorated beautifully, and has every comfort of home. We had a problem with the t.v. And next day had a new one. The owner John is wonderful , and is very concerned that his guests are happy. Short walk to beach, great restaurants, and beautiful sights. Thank you John see you next year.

Best rental so far!

Date of Stay:

My husband and I own a house in North Port and plan to retire there within the next year. Since it's leased to a long-term tenant, we stay in a condo during our trips down 2-3 times a year. This one was our favorite so far! Lemon Bay from the front lanai, beautiful Gulf beach a SHORT walk away, pool for a quick dip - and a very clean & pleasant condo. We walked to dinner every evening and were never disappointed (Lock n Key was exceptional!). A couple of other favorites in the area were Captain Jack's for charter fishing, Farlow's for a delicious dinner, Stump Pass for a nice hike, and the beach for stunning sunsets every single night!! We'll be back!

Great place, beautiful location

Date of Stay:

This was an anniversary treat for my husband, and it did not disappoint. The location was exceptional and what views to wake up with each morning. We found the home as described and well maintained. Kitchen was well kitted out for ease of cooking, although there are many good restaurants within walking distance, you are on holiday after all :-) Fishing was plentiful on the dock below the balcony and the beach just across the road for the stunning sunsets. Our 5 days went by all too quick and we would definitely recommend it and return. John was a pleasure to communicate with from the time of booking. Very quick in responding to emails and always very helpful. Thanks again for sharing your home with us Karen :-)

Best Vacation we have had!

Date of Stay:

The unit and place could have not been better..It truly is a dream vacation that we had in the lovely updated condo unit. We will be back next year hopefully.

Simply beautiful

Date of Stay:

Very nice condo in a great location with spectacular view of Lemon Bay. Within walking distance to a lot, including the beach and ample eateries. I think we loved the early mornings the best: sitting out on the patio, having orange juice & coffee and watching the gorgeous sunrises with only the sounds of birds and calming motors of slow-moving boats around us. We never used the boat dock but should we come back, we will definitely consider it! Very tastefully decorated and comfortable. Beautiful pool when we felt like staying close by. We truly hope to return one day...soon!

Iowa couple loved this great location! Super view of the bay!

Date of Stay:

My husband and I loved this condo and it's location! We rented kayaks, rented a boat, walked on the beach, took advantage of the yoga on the beach a few times, swam in the gulf and walked to restaurants nearby! The view from the deck is awesome! Loved watching the sunrise each morning! The condo was well equipped and was perfect for us!

Best rental on island

Date of Stay:

What you see is what you get in pictures no hidden surprises recently remodeled and updated appliances makes your stay that much nicer property manger office located right around the corner so covenant if you have any problems they also have a vacant lot next door for trailer parking for a small fee since there is no trailer parking at condo but no big deal though by far the best rental experience we have ever had thanks to the management company and the owner of the unit that stays in touch to make sure your trip is the best it can be which was a first in many years of renting different places on the island but finally found one we would definitely come back too

In Awe

Date of Stay:

My husband and I stayed at this condo for a week, it truly is everything that you see in the pictures and so much more. We started each day on the balcony looking out at Lemon Bay, watching the dolphins, manatee, birds and of course the boats sailing by. During the day we would take the short walk across the road to the beach where my husband cast his fishing pole in the ocean for hours and I read a book or two. We spent our evenings either watching the sunset from the beach or sitting on the balcony watching the changing colors of the sky as the sun set behind us, it was truly beautiful everyday and night that we were there, we just basked in the beauty of God's Creation. The condo was very nice, the bed was comfortable and the kitchen was great, everything is pretty much new. We only ate out one night because we had all we needed right there, the best waterfront dining that you could get. The neighbors were great and so friendly and helpful, I might have even met a good old fashioned pen pal. The owners were very helpful with any questions or concerns, they were always quick to respond. Stump Pass is a must and you should go at low tide. The last day there a family of manatee was swimming up and down the beach so my husband and I and several others floated right by them, it was so amazing. We are already looking forward to going back, my husband always likes to go somewhere new each year but not anymore, he wants to go back there next year and Lord willing several after that.

Picturesque

Date of Stay:

My husband and I were looking to get away for Spring Break and found this fabulous condo nestled within walking distance of several restaurants the beach/pool and our favorite spot, stump pass. The condo itself is nicely finished and a boasts a terrific bay view. It had everything we wanted and we enjoyed our stay there very much. We are already thinking about when we can return. The beach is extremely clean and we found so many sharks teeth and shells! We would definitely recommend the condo and the area to anyone. The owners were very prompt in answering any questions we had and were terrific to book through.

All Is Well

Date of Stay:

The condo was clean and in good working order. The pictures are exactly what you get. No fake pictures. We walked on the beach every morning, watched the birds, swam in the heated pool, rented jet skis, rented kayaks, dined on great seafood. We love Manasota Key. The company that holds the keys is nearby and helpful. And the condo owners were wonderful to deal with.

HAVE IT ALL!

Date of Stay:

I recently stayed on Manasota Key in a most delightful condo, at El Galeon East. You can truly have it all here! You have the bay and the gulf! I couldn't believe it! Your condo view is Lemon Bay with dolphins, pelicans and sailing ships! A two minute walk takes you across a delightful courtyard and to an exquisite beach on the Gulf! Shelling is superb, shark teeth and shells all around. A special time was each evening. as nature lovers all found their way to the beach at sunset. As the sun set, you could look left and right and see people gathering to salute and rejoice in the day. It was awesome to see so many there at that magical moment. The condo itself was excellent, well furnished with a wonderful kitchen with everything needed, convenient pool, and laundry. The owners have directions to great shops and and excellent restaurants all within walking distance. We tried every one and were REALLY happy! The owners were wonderful to work with, very responsive, great communication. Through out our week, we were always amazed at the friendliness of everyone, people on the beach, guests, and shop owners. We are ready to return, yoga on the beach, kayak and celebrate the sunsets!

Everything's perfect!!!

Date of Stay:

We truly enjoyed staying at this wonderful unit! The location was fabulous with a great water view and within minutes of the beautiful gulf beach. We enjoyed having extra views as this is a corner unit. The pool and laundry are right outside the door practically and we used both often. The owners have it supplied with almost any appliance that you could want. Everything about this condo helped make our vacation especially pleasurable! Great weather was also a plus!!!

Location, Location, Location!

Date of Stay:

I recently had the opportunity to stay at this condo in El Galeon on Manasota Key. The condo was clean and well- furnished and located in the central part of the Island. It is a short walk to lunch or dinner at the local restaurants and the short walk to the beach, won’t allow the ice in your margarita to melt. Unfortunately my stay was limited to 5 days and by the time I adjusted to the birds, the fishing and the tranquility of the Island, it was time to go home. We plan to stay longer next time. We enjoyed breakfast everyday on the balcony. Oh yes, keep an eye out for the dolphins. They are there!

El Galeon East

Date of Stay:

We had a wonderful time on our winter holiday in Florida! The condo was beautiful, very well equipped and centrally located. I would highly recommend it for a couples getaway or fishing/water enthusiasts . We both are avid fishermen, the condo provided a boat slip and cleaning station. I would definitely stay there again. Thanks John!

Can't wait to return to paradise!

Date of Stay:

This condo is the nicest one I ever rented on Manasota Key. When sitting in the veranda there is a magnificent view of Lemon Bay. We totally enjoyed eating our meals out on the deck overlooking the docks that are part of the condo rental. Watching the boats go by, people fishing and others docking their boats; provide hours of relaxation. This condo has recently been updated with many amenities. I love the lighting, the floors, the beautiful big bathroom, and a nice size walk in shower. The condo is furnished with a king sized bed, pull out couch, washer, and a well equipped kitchen. The swimming pool is right out the front door and to the left. The beach is a two minute walk and the restaurants are a five minute walk. The El Galeon complex is a well maintained beautiful beach and bay community. In my opinion the nicest community and location on Manasota Key. This is a lovely condo to rent. I can't wait to enjoy another wonderful vacation there in the future.

Enjoy the Island Life

Date of Stay:

Watch the video. What you see, is what you get and more! This is a tastefully decorated, clean, modern, comfortable condo. I slept on the sofa bed and was lulled to sleep by the gentle waters of Lemon Bay. It was the most comfortable sofa bed I have ever slept on. The views of Lemon Bay are beautiful. From the balcony, you will see mullet jumping out of the water and if you are lucky, Manatees. Look closely as you may see them kiss. I was pleasantly surprised, that the beach is indeed as close as what it seems in the video. Every morning I sat on the balcony with my coffee and watched the sun rise before going to the morning yoga class on the beach. In the evenings you can walk across the street and watch the sun go down. Other options include sunset yoga (offered twice a week) or Sunday night drum circle, also in the beach. If that's not your thing, there are cool bars with live music and happy hour food and drink specials. Everything is within walking distance. Between sunrise and sunset, we rented bikes and used them to explore the Island. There are 4 public beaches and they are pristine. If you look at the Gulf long enough you will see dolphins. We watched dolphins jump out of the water in perfect unison, performing as if they just escaped from SeaWorld. Magical! We took the nature walk in Stump Pass Beach State Park and collected sharks teeth on the beach. Another day we went on a 90 minute stand up paddleboard tour that left from the same State Park. It was serene AND a good work out. I recommend this condo for anyone looking for a lovely space and location to relax and enjoy the island life. It's all there. No reason to leave the island. Can’t wait to go back!

Beautiful and Beachy!

Date of Stay:

We had a wonderful time at this lovely condo steps from the beach and bay. We loved the view and the convenient location. Our family had a great time in Manisota and truly enjoyed the condo which was clean, well appointed and lovely. I even did yoga on the beach. And we really enjoyed having a pool on the property…. Highly recommend!

Englewood , FL , United States

Just south of Sarasota, off the coast of Englewood, this beguiling barrier island is in perfect harmony with its surroundings. No traffic lights, no high rises, no deed restrictions, just a two lane protected canopy road leading you to swaying palms, an endless white sand beach, and the warm, turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Casually sophisticated, Manasota Key offers a variety of lifestyles. Opulent waterfront estates mingle effortlessly with cozy beach-side cottages and classic winter residences. An eclectic variety of shops populate nearby Historic Dearborn Street and restaurants tempt eager visitors on and off the key.

Nearby sandbars offer soothing relaxation or invigorating water sports while big amenities are just minutes away. Manasota Key is the perfect match for those that would appreciate Century’s old Banyan trees alive with tropical birds, frolicking dolphin, loggerhead turtles, balmy sea breezes, the kiss of the sun, and the magic of the sunset endow Manasota Key with a dramatic, sensual, and serene ambiance. To get away from it all but requires the convenience of nearby airports. If you enjoy casual waterfront dining you’ll love the numerous restaurants, accessible by boat along the Intra-Coastal waterway from Sarasota to Boca Grande. Take family and friends 5 minutes south to Stump Pass and swim with the dolphins, hunt for pre-historic shark’s teeth and fossils, grill out, or just watch the sunset into the Gulf of Mexico. We assure you this is the most natural barrier island remaining on the west coast of Florida.
