About Teresa & Brendan 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

Teresa & Brendan Gallagher purchased this condo in 2015

Why Teresa & Brendan 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.

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!

Great location

  • 3 of 5

Very clean unit. Comfortable bed and couch. Everything you need for the beach. The TV is smaller than many computer screens. Suggest better curtains in bedroom to block condo lights

Owner's Response: Hi Jan, So glad you enjoyed your stay at our condo! And thank you for your suggestion, we will look into alternative solution for light blocking. All the Best.

Lemon Bay is gorgeous !!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was the perfect place for us to stay with beautiful surroundings, LOTS of various eating places, quiet during our stay....the music from across the Bay was not too loud. We thought Lemon Bay was the highlight of our visit with activity of dolphins, pelicans, and various fishing boats.

A really nice place on the bay and steps to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here the first week of June as part of our extended family vacation. The condo is in a very nice building with easy access. All of the furnishings were new or newer and very comfortable. The kitchen is nicely equipped and everything worked well. While this condo is bayside it is a very easy walk directly across the street to the beach. We had family staying beachside so it was very convenient. There are no obstructions to the full view of the bay and boat docks, which was important to us since we brought a boat. The docks are in good shape and there is electricity and water available. Trailer parking is not allowed on property but we made arrangements with a local marina to launch at and then store the trailer for a reasonable fee. It was actually more convenient to do that rather than deal with parking the trailer on site. Making the rental arrangements was very easy via online/email. It was slightly more than we normally pay at the complex next door, but considerably less than others nearby. As far as the slightly more, it was worth it due to the condition of the condo, boat docks, and property in general. One helpful item was the personal secure WIFI. I know the reason for getting away is to get away, but one of us is a college professor teaching two online classes this summer. The secure high speed internet allowed her to keep up with her students quickly and easily. Highly recommend renting here and we will be back!
