Hi, I'm Jan!

My husband, myself and 3 sons, have lived in Minnesota all of our lives ("Yah sure you betcha - Go Vikings!")

We fell in love with Manasota Key in 2003, during our first visit to the island. Shortly after, we were excited to purchase our first condominium at the Castaways Condos. In 2005, we bought the El Galeon South condo.

Unforunately, right now we only get to enjoy the condos a couple times a year, until Jay retires from the 3M corporation. Then we hope to spend much more time on Manasota Key.

We always look forward to leaving the cold Minnesota winters behind & enjoy the warm Florida sunshine. It's like getting a big hug from the Sun!

Staying at the El Galeon South condo is a pure delight. The grounds & building are meticulously cared for. The amenities are wonderful and our condo is kept very clean & comfortable. We especially enjoy having breakfast on the lania. The view of Lemon Bay is absolutely spectacular; pictures do not do it justice.

The Castaways condo is perfect for "Die Hard" beach lovers. The unit is so close to the gulf -that you could almost get splashed!

It's really difficult to say which location we enjoy more - they each offer their own unmatched ambiance and beauty.

Here are my properties:

We had come down from the north and came into seven great days of sunshine. We camped by the pool at El Galeon. Want to come back next year for a longer time. Dave S
