About James

My Wife and I live in Englewood year-round, 15 minutes away from the property.

James purchased this studio in 2006

Why James chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Though it is not a big place it is perfect for a get-away for two. Most renters are out and about everyday not sitting inside a vacation rental. I have repeat renters that come from up north that have no problem with the space as they stay multiple months. Its all about value.

What makes this studio unique

We do not charge a cleaning fee and everyone who stays tells us they appreciate that. No one wants to be nickeled and dimed to death with fees. Living nearby year-round we are always quick to respond to any issue if it arises. I am a resident of Englewood/Manasota Key area since 1973 so I am extremely knowledgeable regards to the area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Had a Great month in your newly decorated studio, loved the furniture!

The unit was JUST right for our needs! Even got in the pool to swim today...so nice and warm.

Will keep you in mind for future guests looking for a getaway location. Thank you for being such great hosts!"

Excellent studio to go and unwind. Quite, peaceful and convenient location. Well equipped with even a lunchbox. James met with us and pointed us in all the awesome restaurants in the area. The Coconut Pie at Lock and Key Restaurant was the best tasting ever. Pool clean and refreshing. Landscaping was like a resort, nicely groomed. James was at our begging call if needed . ( Very convenient since it has been years since our last visit to the Island).The boat dock was wonderful to tie up our boat and not load it daily. The manatee and dolphins were quite visible from the dock. We even fished off the dock. We hope to return again soon!!

Southern Hospitality At It's Beat!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect! This was the perfect place for the two of us to spend our vacation. It's so cute, neat, and clean! It has all the comforts and amenities of home. The location is perfect! It's 1-2 minutes to the pristine beaches of Manasota Key and to the wonderful restaurants of Englewood (grocery stores, everything). I can't say enough about how wonderful our "vacay" was and how great and "available" the property owners are. Southern Hospitality at it's best! 10 days was not long enough, It all seems like a dream now. We are counting down until next year, we will defiantly be back!

Our stay was amazing. It's very convenient to great restaurants and the beach. It's perfect if you are traveling with a boat, there is plenty of parking. The pool was very relaxing after a long day on the water fishing. The room was very clean and everything appeared to be brand new. The owner James, was very friendly and kind and helpful with all our questions. Overall my family had a great time and we hope to return in the near future.

Owner's Response: Our location is great for those that have a boat and trailer. We seem to be getting more and more inquiries from boaters and they seem to love what we have to offer! You don't have to have a boat to enjoy our place but it seems like those that do love it !!!

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at James' Condo was just perfect. The time went by way too fast and we really didn't want to leave but I am sure we will be back. Everything in the condo is new and clean, it has everything you could need and nothing that you don't. It is the perfect amount of space for two people, the heated pool is great, and you are a short drive away from 4 different beaches.

James went above and beyond to make sure that we had everything we needed. He even overnighted us some items that we had forgotten in the condo. If you are looking for a place to stay in the Englewood/Manasota Key area and this condo is available I highly recommend that you stay here. You wont regret it.
