A perfect spot for us

  • 5 of 5

I have been too the key a few times before. I chose Dana and Jim’s property for the location and a few key features. I also was very appreciative of Dana’s personal care of us. She responds to emails within minutes and they live two minutes away. The property is clean and has everything down too extra dish soap. The king bed was great, we slept like babies. The gulf is a short walk and the pool is secluded and warm. We would come back in a heartbeat too this property and the wonderful owners.

Sunny Sea Oats

  • 5 of 5

This was a very enjoyable stay. Having been to the Key several times in the past, this was the first stay in a condo vs. a private home. While the pictures are 100% accurate, the unit is larger than envisioned. This is a CLEAN, comfortable unit with all the amenities you could hope to be supplied with in a rental. Dana and Jim have thought of everything. We had a wonderful, relaxing time at the 4 beaches on the Key and also made several trips to the beaches in Venice. We rented a boat for several days from Skip's Marina and were able to dock it at Sea Oats. The grill was nice to have for the nights we felt like eating in.

There are 9 units here and while some were occupied, we still felt like we were on our own 'private' property. Thank you Dana and Jim!

Quiet, relaxing getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Property was well kept. No complaints at all. Community is nice, we visited during the off season. Easy access to beaches or relaxing by the pool. It was a rainy week, odd for Florida, plenty to explore and do with a 2 hour drive or less. Owners very accommodating. Return trip will be in the future.

Paradise Found Here at Sea Oats By The Bay

  • 5 of 5

WOW...We have never stayed in a place where it was so stocked with anything and everything you could ask for. And VERY CLEAN!! Dana and Jim are outstanding hosts and we enjoyed meeting and spending time with them. They are down to earth people and attended to every request immediately, no matter how minor. The beaches were close and one is within walking distance. To our delight we saw things at the beach that we never saw before : -)....quite memorable for us. The dock was enjoyable to fish off of or just relax on the bench and take in the wildlife that inhabits Lemon Bay. Manatees were spotted from time to time cruising around the dock. The pool was awesome! We spent many hours relaxing there enjoying the Florida sunshine and bright blue skies. Delicious well prepared food at restaurants on Manasota Key and right off the Key made for some great dining experiences. Easy to navigate area where you can't get lost. What more could you want?? The Gulf water is many shades of turquoise blue and the beaches are full of shells and we actually found fossilized shark teeth! Spectacular sunsets over the Gulf! We miss it already. This was our first trip to the West Coast of Florida and we will definitely be back to stay at Sea Oats By The Bay. We had a wonderful relaxing time. Till we meet again. Best Wishes. Nancy and Charlie from PA.

We have stayed at several VRBO properties all over the country, and this by far was the best. Very comfortable, clean and well appointed.

Towels, linens, furnishings and beach gear were top notch.

Dana and Jim (owners) were very responsive to our needs, and bent over backwards to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed.

Looking forward to our next visit.

Second stay at Dana and Jim's. Makes two great experiences. Modern condo perfectly equipped. Great location on Lemon Bay with entrance to Gulf just down the road. Small quiet condo community ( 9 units) with heated pool. Can t recommend enough.
