About the property

Gorgeous Gulf of Mexico Views from This Spacious 3 Bedroom 2.5 Bath Condo!

Fantastic Direct-Beachfront 3 Bed/2.5 Bath corner unit with breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico located on the 2nd floor! This nicely decorated and sizable unit has a screened lanai, King size bed in Master bedroom, Queen bed in one guest room and two twins in the other. Nice open floor plan allows water views from the kitchen, living/dining room and master bedroom.

One of the newest Gulf front luxury condominiums on Manasota Key, Barefoot Beach Condominiums overlooks a wide expanse of beachfront and has a private heated swimming pool, covered parking and elevator service to each floor in a very convenient beach and waterfront location. (On-site reserved garage parking for one vehicle included with rental. Due to scarcity of premium parking on Key, additional vehicles must be parked off-site for a fee. Ask about options.)

This getaway offers it all… experience the fabulous views from the screened balcony, calm and peaceful morning walks on the beach, breathtaking sunsets, pristine waters of the Gulf of Mexico, various marine life and Florida shore birds. Being steps from the shore you will enjoy miles of sandy coastline and “finds” on the beach (shells, sharks teeth, sand dollars, etc).

For those that want to socialize you are within a 5 min walk of several island establishments offering delicious food, drinks and entertainment. Mingle with the locals and other tourists or just find your own private spot and listen to some of the best bands and musicians in the area. Shops and boutiques are also in walking distance of the condo as well as boat and jet ski rentals. Book a parasailing adventure or an Eco tour. Rent a boat for the day and explore our barrier islands or leave the driving to the experts and book a fishing charter for some world class fishing. Another option is to stop in at the fresh fish market and pick up something “just caught” to take back to cook for dinner. Just a 5 minute drive takes you into “town” with major grocery and departments stores, restaurants and our quaint “Dearborn St” with its dining, shopping and special events.

Manasota Key is a small barrier island on the southwest coast of Florida. In comparison to many of the modern areas in this part of the state, Manasota Key exhibits Old World charm. Like many coastal towns, the most popular activities here are beach activities. However, golfing, outdoor recreation and art galleries are also fun to visit in the area.

Come experience beach life at its best in this fantastic direct gulf front condominium!

Fantastic BEACHFRONT Gulf of Mexico Condo On Manasota Key! Awesome views!
average rating of 4.85 based on 20 reviews

Perfect condo for relaxing on the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Condo is as described. Beach front with a screened in lanai that my sisters and I used extensively. Condo is roomy and comfortable. Instructions from Kim (owner's assistant) were excellent. This is a great beach for shell hunting and swimming was perfect. We saw dolphins one afternoon from the beach and could listen to the surf all night. We walked to local restaurants every day for lunch or dinner. Definitely will consider this condo for future vacations. Great vacation for the price.

Beautiful Condo, Ocean Front

  • 4 of 5

The property couldn't have been better. the furniture, kitchen gear, everything upgrade. The only problem was the noise. It sounded like someone moving furniture at all hours of day and at least till 11 pm..You'd hear walking and squeeking. I couldn't take a nap in the afternoon, and at night it was still troublesome. If your a light sleeper, don't come here. I think there's something wrong with the way the condo's where built....

Resort living

  • 5 of 5

This year my husband was recuperating from two major surgeries. Being able to go for walks and look at the beach and the ocean was therapeutic. It is a wonderful location and the owner and caretaker of our condo were informative and responsive on the few occasions when there was a minor problem. We love it there and hope to continue to rent it for many winters to come.

Sea Shells Galore

Spectacular view, easy and convenient to get around. Small pool but we didn't use it anyway. If you like sea shells this is the place to be.

Englewood Beach after IRMA...

  • 5 of 5

Our original vacation week got cancelled due to Hurricane Irma in mid-September however the VRBO owner/agent (Karl/Kim) were very accommodating in getting us rescheduled quickly after the storm. The condo unit was great with direct gulf-front view and ultra-convenient to everything on Englewood Beach. There was some storm damage noticeable in the area (tree debris, roofs, signs, etc...) but the biggest change we noticed was to the Stump Pass Park where you could now walk all the way south to the inlet along a beautiful wide beach. The only drawback to the week was the constant construction (renovation & repairs) going on at other units within the Barefoot Beach condo complex and the inoperative elevator in the building. We are so glad that the Englewood Beach area was spared major damage from Hurricane Irma and we look forward to visiting the area again in the not too distant future. Thank you Karl/Kim for your hospitality and for working with us to reschedule after the storm, we would definitely return to Barefoot Beach, Unit 203. -- Alan & Patti

Owner's Response: Alan and Patti we were so happy to host you as our guests. As you know we were not made aware of the plans for construction in advance and were as surprised as you were. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding. We would like to make it up to you by offering you a special discount if you would like to return next year. I will be contacting you right away with this offer. We have never had issues with the elevator prior to this and hope it is repaired for good now. We are glad you enjoyed the condo and your time at our beach. Thank you so much for staying with us and we hope to have you as guests again in the future!

Stump Pass Beach State Park is located less than a mile to the south of the condo. The 245 acre park consists of three islands and the protected channels between them. Anglers fish the surf for prize catches and visitors come to this secluded beach to enjoy the year-round swimming, sunbathing and shelling. A hiking trail passes through five distinct natural communities that provide homes for many species of wildlife; covered picnic tables are located along the trail. Visitors can launch a kayak and paddle around the two islands just east of the park's land base. While at the park, visitors might see West Indian manatees, gopher tortoises, snowy egrets, least terns, and magnificent frigate birds. Ranger-led nature hikes are available in the winter.
