Description of the Englewood vacation condo rental

Escape to Margaritaville (Unit 15C) where life REALLY is a beach, when you treat yourself to this delightful Manasota Key Gulf front condo.

You'll enjoy private "FRONT ROW" seats to a PANORAMIC view of the Gulf of Mexico & Spectacular Sunsets. (This is NOT a peek a boo view, this condo is as close to water as your going to get without getting wet! )

Bright, Clean & Cheerful, best describes this tropical beach getaway.

Unit 15C has been freshly painted, has new appliances, newly upholstery livingroom furniture, new Flat Screen TV in living room & bedroom. Washer/Dryer inside unit. We also have High Speed Wireless Internet.

There is also beautiful heated pool & cabana on the property for your use. Charcoal BBQ grills are near the pool and throughout the property.

A Polynesian Tiki village was the inspiration for the uniquely designed Castaways Condos. With the blending of the exotic south-seas and a touch of old Florida charm, Castaways Condos has captured the essence of a remote enclave nestled along a distant seashore.

You're sure to feel like you're a guest on Gilligan's Island!

Hard to go back home!

October 3, 2014

We stayed for one week of blissful Florida sunshine. Being right on the beach was fantastic! We were eager to get out first thing in the morning and stay out until after the beautiful sunsets. The unit (15C) is clean, cute, and has all the comforts of home. We were surprised by the visiting wildlife, friendly herons and turtles coming and going! Being so close to the water was such a treat. We were close enough to the condo to take frequent snack breaks or to pack a picnic and walk the beach all the way to Stumps Pass! This is by far my most favorite spot in Florida!

I have absolutely nothing bad to say about my stay. The unit (15C) was beach front, well maintained, very clean, nicely furnished, and conveniently located with in walking distance to several nice restaurants. We loved that there was a pool; my wife has a knee injury and after while the ocean waves can bother her so it was nice to take a break in condo's pool. A pleasant surprise were a pair of dolphins that could be seen most mornings feeding almost directly in front of our condo. My wife actually got to swim with them one morning, although I don't know if that's recommended to do with wild dolphins. All-in-all, we're looking forward to returning to these condo's in the future, and I highly recommend them to 0anyone else coming southern Florida.

Very Nice

May 7, 2012

We rented 15C for 2 nights and unfortunately did not spend too much time there as we were with friends all day. But from the time we were there, it was nice. Views are great! The king bed was actually 2 twin beds together which was fine and they were comfortable. Kids slept on sofa bed and didn't complain. Would I stay there again? Maybe - it is quite expensive for only sleeping. Maybe I would rent a cheaper unit without a view. Parking was a little difficult to find at first, but it's a small enough complex so didn't take too long. Didn't use the pool, so I cannot comment. That is why 4 stars since we didn't use all the amenities and I can't rate them. Very easy to rent and customer service was very good.

Our condo (15c) was great!!!! Is was the ultimate for anyone wishing to be right on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. This was our fifth time to stay right on the beach and this condo had the best view with the prettiest water yet. The staff was all friendly and everything was just as we had hoped. The pool was always clean and never crowded and the kids loved it. The area had great seafood at very reasonable prices and the souvenir shops were great as well. Dont forget your fishing tackle. We only wished that we had taken more friends and family to enjoy this vacation. Thanks, Ron from Tennessee

Owner Supplied Testimonials


5 Star Vacation

My best friend and I stayed in this unit (15C) for five nights in mid July 2011. The condo is truly gulf front with a nice, large covered deck. The deck has four chairs and a big table. The unit is furnished in a fun, "beachy" theme and very clean. The king size bed - SUPER COMFY!! The kitchen is fully stocked and has just about anything you might need and a nice large fridge. There is no dishwasher but that really did not present a problem; we just washed up a few things as we needed. Having a washer and dryer in the unit allowed us to go home with all clean clothes. Bathroom is about the size you would expect in a 1BR and more than enough towels to last our entire stay. Everything turned out perfect for us! It is nice and quiet and excellent shelling.
