Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday condo in Manasota Key - Barefoot Beach Condo

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!

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much to our hosts for making this beautiful condo available for us to stay. When we walked in the views were unbelievable! The photos don't do it justice! We love englewood beach and this condo made us able to really make the most of our time because it's directly on the beach. It had everything we needed and we could tell it was well maintained and modern. Thanks so much and we look forward to visiting again!

Great Beach Condo on Manasota Key

  • 5 of 5

We rented the condo for 3 couples and the condo was very roomy, clean and comfortable for us. The screened in porch has a wonderful and close view of the water and there is easy access to the uncrowded beach. There is one parking space for the condo so the other 2 cars had to be parked elsewhere for a separate fee, but it is a short walk.

The only things lacking were enough silverware for dinners and some cooking utensils. This is in no way a negative though, since you can certainly make do!

We wanted to return next year but this popular condo is already book-so plan ahead.

Stump Pass is within walking distance. We bought seafood at Twin Lobsters (5 minutes away) and found good golf courses close by.

We would recommend this property very highly. Kim, the owner's representative, was easy to contact for any questions before we arrived and for the one question we had while we were there.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking time to post a review of our condo. We enjoyed having you as guests and are pleased that the condo was a great fit for you. I apologize that there was a shortage of utensils on your visit and want to thank you for making us aware of that. We have since purchased new flatware, etc. so that should not be an issue for future guests. Thank you again, we hope you can come back to stay with us in the future!

We shared the condo with another couple. It is very spacious and contained everything we needed. Just a short walk to several restaurants.

Wonderful stay and can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this very clean and spacious condo. We were lucky enough to have 80 degree weather in December the whole week we were there. The kids played on the beach every day and the condo provided beach chairs, surf boards and a large beach umbrella . There was an outdoor shower to rinse off all the sand before you entered back into the complex. The views from the condo are amazing! You can watch the sun set out the front window right over the ocean and I got plenty of gorgeous pictures of my children playing on the beach in the sunset. The beach area in front of the condo was very nice with lots of shells and not crowded with people. There was a Walmart down the road about 3 miles, or a Publix that was only 1 mile. The kitchen had everything we needed to make all our meals. We would definitely go back to this condo and hope to go back again soon. The only thing I can say that was a concern was the door handle to get into the condo. It was wobbly and hard to unlock; and I wished there was a dead bolt or extra lock on the inside. I like to feel very safe during the night.

Absolutely Beautiful Place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this place. The pictures don't do it justice. It's very open, spacious, clean, nicely decorated, comfortable and stocked with pretty much everything needed. Has beautiful views of the gulf and is quiet and peaceful but close to shopping and restaurants. Our grandson enjoyed collecting shells and sharks teeth on the beach. We walked to Flounders for dinner 3 times. Great food and live music. Would also recommend a pontoon boat tour with Captain Bruce at Lemon Bay Tours. Only about a mile from condo. So much fun! We saw manatees, dolphins, an eagle and many different kinds of birds. Can't wait to return next year.

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.
