About Gallagher Family, contact Teresa DiCampli-Gallagher

We visited Manasota Key in April of 2015, loved every minute of our stay! Decided to look at condos and bought one in one of the coolest places on the island. Our condo is an end unit that overlooks Lemon Bay, and when standing on the lanai look left, you can see the Gulf! We have the sunrise and the sunset on our lanai balcony! We bought our condo to share with others, and also enjoy visiting. We feel like we're at home every time we are in El Galeon East #201

Gallagher Family, contact Teresa DiCampli-Gallagher purchased this condo in 2015

Why Gallagher Family, contact Teresa DiCampli-Gallagher chose Englewood

Our end condo in El Galeon East is a second story end unit with panoramic views of Lemon Bay. This view from the balcony is so picturesque with sailboats docked in the distance, dophins swimming by, manatees poking their noses out of the water, blue herons and pelicans landing on the dock... one can sit here all day, every day.

What makes this condo unique

El Galeon East is ideally located close by to restauants, entertainment, yoga on the beach, Stump Pass Beach State Park and a short ride over the bridge to get to shopping and groceries.

Nice place

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at El Galeon. Very clean, bright condo with a great view overlooking Lemon Bay. Beach across the street. Short 10 minute walk to store for coffee/paper in the am. Very short drive to some very good casual restaurants (Farlows, Wine Bistro) to name a couple.

Wonderful View

  • 3 of 5

El Galleon is the complex this unit is in. This building faces the wonderful Lemon Bay and is very large and lots of boat activity but still relaxing. Across the street there is another building in the complex that faces the Gulf and provides easy beach access for you. Both have large swimming pools. Also assigned parking spaces. The laundry is clean and neat and requires $2 in quarters for a washer and another $2 for a dryer. The complex is an easy walk to 3 restaurants and bars,

The unit itself was large enough for my husband and I. We really enjoyed sitting on the deck.

You could definitely hear the music from the nearby restaurants when outside but not when inside with heavy sliding doors shut. The living area has comfortable sofa and chairs and kitchen is adequately stocked. Teresa did supply hand soap, paper towels and dish soap.

There were two issues:

1. The king sized mattress was a 5" foam mattress over twin bed box springs. The mattress was hot.

2. The living room 24" tv was way too small. We watched basketball games on our ipads because it was clearer. The bedroom tv was not that much larger.

Teresea was very quick to respond to emails and seems very friendly.

Lovely, clean, well-equipped condo

  • 5 of 5

Such a charming, clean, well-equipped condo. The view of the bay was lovely. The owners thought of everything you might need. The WiFi worked very, very well, which often doesn’t happen in this area. I would love to return next year.

We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation on Manasota Key. We walked on the beach, enjoyed the beautiful sunset, watched birds and boaters from our balcony, and had great seafood at local restaurants. Hope to be back next year!!

slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location! Lots to watch in the harbor--dolphins, pelicans, boats coming and going. Two minute walk to a fabulous beach. The unit is cute, cozy, and clean. The owner has taken care with little touches: decor is lovely, kitchen is well-equipped, bathroom towels are plentiful and fluffy-soft. Even with the cold weather we were very happy here!
