About Stanley Kowalski

Stanley Kowalski purchased this condo in 2004

Why Stanley Kowalski chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

I decided on this location because it's quiet and beautiful. Getting to the island and beaches is fast and easy. Lemon Bay is fantastic for boating and fishing. Very hard to find a Gulf to Bay location as ideal as this!!

What makes this condo unique

It's peacful and beautiful, puts me in a relaxed zen like state. Walking to the Beach, Bay,or Restaurants is easy. Flounder's Restaurant (WiFi) is right next door. It's owned by Simon Dumont, the famous X-Games Ski champion. He is there often. They have an oudoor beach setting with Volleyball, Horse Shoes, a pier for boats and Florida's finest drinks and food, RIGHT NEXT DOOR!!

Great location!

  • 2 of 5

This unit was clean but in DIRE NEED OF UPDATING. Simple things like the broken silverware drawer, could easily be fixed. Missing base board molding in bathroom with exposed nails sticking out, could easily be fixed. Shame!

It's a first floor unit -and your views are not quite "views". The gulf is across the street beyond the condos blocking your view. You get a peek of the Gulf only, no good "water view". 2nd floor would have a better view, but not this ground level unit. The "view" of the bay in the back is only from the bedroom and only a corner of it. Only way to see Bay from balcony is if you lean around the corner. Location is great. Owner seems very nice, he could really make this place nice with some updating - the cleaning lady Dawn was rude!

Stan was easy to coordinate with and so was his cleaning service. They let me know what I needed for toiletries and linen a head of time so I could plan for my 2 boys to come with we. Ill be back if he'll have me! 😎😉

Very nice and quiet area

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over the Fourth of July weekend. This is a clean one bedroom and one large bathroom located on the bay side. This condo has a balcony with access to the sidewalk and in an area within walking distance to several bars and restaurants. The public beach is just across the street. I would recommend this condo for anyone traveling to Manasota Key

as advertised

  • 3 of 5

Enjoyed my stay. Only a couple of problems. Stanley said I should check in with the housekeeper about possible early check- in. She neither returned my calls or emails. When I arrived I had been given the wrong access code to the lock box and did not enter till a little after 4:00 PM when the housekeeper finally returned my call. A bumpy start but enjoyed my stay.
