About Teresa & Brendan Gallagher

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

Teresa & Brendan Gallagher purchased this condo in 2015

Why Teresa & Brendan Gallagher chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

My 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.

Fabulous Stay on the Bay!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better value. I like that it is an end unit. This little gem had it all. Convenient location, clean, comfortable, well stocked and one of the best views on the bay.

I loved our stay in Manasota Key. The restaurants and bars all had decent food, and we had a lot of fun at the bars. Don't miss the drum circle at the public beach on Sunday evenings. I'm glad I got to experience the sounds and warmth of the many different people there.

Can't wait to get back to enjoy it all again.

Beautiful setting on Lemon Bay.

  • 4 of 5

This is an end unit with great unobstructed view of Lemon Bay from the living area and covered balcony. We enjoyed watching dolphins, birds, and boats from the balcony. It's a quiet and laid-back area with Stump Pass Park, several restaurants and shops within easy walking distance. Fishing docks are right there, and the gulf beach is across the street. The unit was comfortable, and the kitchen was well equipped. The decor is a bit out of date but comfortable. It was the right size for my husband and me.

Needs some TLC

VRBO ad says king bed...

Its NOT a King bed it's two twins pushed together with really old mattresses. We did not sleep much. The condo was very outdated, plus TV remotes were not working, nor were bedroom lights. I had to clean patio furniture in order to sit outside. I would not recommend this condo for a relaxing vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback! We are sorry for any inconveniences and have addressed each of your issues so that any future stay will be more than enjoyable. There is a new smart tv in the living room, so remote will work fine! For the bedroom, we are in the process of ordering a new king mattress; the bedroom track lighting's switch is located on the outlet that is under the windows; bedroom lamp on dresser goes on by switch at the entrance door; bedside lamps turn on manually. As far as the outside patio furniture, we will be even more diligent on the upkeep as the furniture is exposed to the elements. Sincerely, Brendan and Teresa

Spectacular Views

  • 4 of 5

Prior to booking our unit at El Galeon we looked at several units on-line for that perfect unit. We chose this 2nd floor unit and were very pleased with our choice. The unit has spectacular view of Lemon Bay and the dolphin were very active as well as the manatee. The pool area was very clean and relaxing which is where we spent most of our time. The owner was very pleasant to work with and wanted to make sure our stay was enjoyable. Love Manasota Key!!!!

Well kept and scenic

  • 5 of 5

Nothing feels better after a long plane ride than arriving to your vacation rental and finding it well kept and smelling clean. After taking a moment to unpack and get situated, I got to check out the breath taking view from the balcony. Great for catching some beautiful sunrises. And once it gets to be evening you can take a five minute walk to catch the sun set over the Gulf Coast. Right down the road from the condo is Stump Pass Park, which offers a number of different activities to work up an appetite before checking out some of the local eating spots, all within walking distance. I had not been to this part of Florida before and the owner was very approachable and helpful with all of the questions I had, renting was a breeze. 10/10 would rent again.

Great value

  • 5 of 5

Very clean. Great location. Conveniently located to restaurants. Florida sunshine the bay on one side and the gulf 75 yards away. The beach very nice and if you don't like the gulf two pools are very nice.
