Small condo with dock space

Date of Stay:

It is priced just about right. Older property that could use a few upgrades. The highlight is that it is on the water and sitting on the balcony looking at boats. It was not crowded when we were there so we had a lot of privacy, however, the balcony is open to the neighbors balconies. Otherwise, well stocked and had all we needed. The pool was very nice.

Place was amazing!

Date of Stay:

This place was amazing. The ease of walking to the beach, pool, parking, and laundromat made this place perfect for a relaxing vacation with our kids! Check in was effortless and we were even able to get in early. The kitchen was stocked with what we needed to relax and cook at home. Beach umbrellas and chairs were a huge bonus! I can’t say enough good things about this place and already looking at dates to return!

Recommend this condo highly

Date of Stay:

We recommend this condo highly. John was a great host. We came in very late only to find a fresh bag of coffee awaiting us. The unit was clean with all the necessities to get our stay started off well. The view of the bay was awesome. The beach is a minutes walk away. 4 top notch restaurants and bars within a few minutes walk. It was very hot but the gulf breeze keeps you cool. We loved it!!!

Great location!

Date of Stay:

The location of the condo is spot on as you overlook Lemon Bay from your lanai and are only a short walk to the beach. We did see occasional dolphins from our lanai which was wonderful and found it enjoyable to watch the boat traffic on the bay. We were also within walking distance of many of the restaurants in the area which we took advantage.

Wonderful View

Date of Stay:

I very much enjoyed my stay in Bay Life Condo! The view was fantastic. The condo was very quiet, comfortable, clean, safe and had everything I needed for my stay. There were friendly people all around and nice restaurants nearby. I couldn't ask any more for a wonderful vacation on Manasota Key. I've been there many times but this was by far the nicest place I've stayed. I will return next year and hope to stay in the same condo again.

It's the Best of Both Worlds the bay and the beach

Already planning our next trip with more family to join us! Thank you for sharing your Piece of Paradise with us!

Best of both worlds!

Date of Stay:

Great location! The best of both worlds with the bay out back and the Gulf out front within steps away! The place was clean and ready for our arrival earlier than expected. Communication with John our host was very good! We will be returning for our third stay next year!

El Galeon on Manasota Key

Date of Stay:

This property has a great view of the bay. The deck looks right out over one of the docks. The people that manage this property do a wonderful job of communicating and making sure everything is great. We even received new oversized beach towels to use for yoga on the beach!

Excellent condo!

Date of Stay:

This was an excellent condo, handy for all amenities and extremely well equipped. What we particularly liked, having flown to a local airport was that we didn't have to go out and stock up with basics cruets, oil, washing liquid, toiletries etc. We also very much appreciated the suggestions for places to visit, where to eat, shop and see. Thank you to John for making our holiday Manasota Key so very enjoyable.

The perfect vacation spot!

Date of Stay:

This beautifully decorated condo with tranquil views of Lemon Bay and the Intercostal, provided wonderful quiet times for resting while also being only a minute walk from all the “action”. Our days were spent with yoga on the beach every morning, walks or boat rides, lunches at different restaurants down the street all with daily and evening music entertainment. Don’t miss the Sunday drumcircles or Thursday open air market. This property is so well maintained and completely equipped, there was nothing else we needed, but just incase, the management made sure we could reach them. We highly recommend this condo and look forward to returning!

A Little Piece of Paradise

Date of Stay:

As soon as we walked we felt like we were in a beachy, relaxing atmosphere. Everything in the rental was bright, fresh, clean and up to date! The first thing we did was go out on the patio and see the amazing 180 degree water view! Steps away, across the street, is the gulf where the sandy beach was literally covered in shells of all kinds! The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, cookware and utensils just like home! I would most definitely recommend this rental, as well as the island itself, for beach goers, boaters, people who fish and those who enjoy good food, music, friendly people and relaxation!

Stunning Sunrise Views

Date of Stay:

This place is absolutely incredible. We brought our boat which we docked right out back from our lanai and could keep an eye on it from our room. The fishing is incredible and the beach is a short run by boat or just walk across the street and you are there. We are planning another vacation now.

Wonderful Vacation Spot!

Date of Stay:

My husband and I absolutely loved staying in this condo! It was very clean, tidy and simply designed. John and Carol were great with quick responses when we needed them. We will definitely be back. El Galeon is a spot my husband's family has been coming to for many many years and we will definitely be back to stay in this unit. Love the family vibe the complex carries. The view from our balcony was beautiful for breakfast and sunset; also most everything we needed was a short walk away. Thank you for your hospitality!! -Kaitlin & Jason

Beautiful Bay View!

Date of Stay:

My husband and I really enjoyed this condo. Everything was in great condition and it was so clean! Mornings and evenings on the lanai were truly beautiful. We saw dolphins near the dock every day and it is just a short walk across the street to the beach. A boat tour around the bay was a highlight of our stay. We hope to return to this condo.

Great vacation spot

Date of Stay:

My husband and I spent the month of April at El Galleon Condo in Manasota Key. We highly recommend the apartment and the area. The apartment was neat and sweet, we had all the comforts we needed for the month. Joe and Carol were welcoming and available to us for any questions we had regarding the many things to do in area. The balcony from the apartment gave us beautiful sunrises and lots of nature viewing. We saw dolphins, manatee lots of pelicans all from our own chairs! The beach just across the street gave us spectacular sunsets and great shelling. Sharks teeth were the fun find. We had our daughter and grand daughter visit for a week and they loved the place too. We were all very comfortable and had plenty of activities to do for all ages. Perfect vacation, we highly recommend! Hope to do it again! As a note, when I had a health issue, I was recommended to a walk in at Tiffany Mall, the place was wonderful, attentive and thorough. The best experience you could have with an emergency away from home.

We can't wait to come back. Highly recommended!

Manasota Key , 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.
