“Fun times on the beach”

Reviewed 9 Apr 2016

We have been coming to the Venice area for over 30 years and love the Manasota area. This was our first experience staying on Manasota Key, beach/ocean front. The accommodations were very nice. The pool was fantastic. We loved being 20 steps from the beach. We will definitely return!

Owner's reply: Look forward to your return...very much enjoyed working with you !!! Let me know as soon as you have dates , we are already filling up for the 2017 season..

“Absolutely Perfect!”

Reviewed 7 Jun 2015

My husband and I just returned from a one week stay in these beautiful condos and have nothing but positive things to say! (Our only complaint is that we should have stayed 2 weeks!) The condo was so clean, beautiful and accommodating! Plenty of fresh clean towels, beach chairs, umbrellas and a fully stocked kitchen for the days you wanted to eat at the condo and watch the amazing sunset. Marg was the best, so easy to work with and made it all fall into place. The town was so quaint, and the restaurants were delicious and reasonably priced. Our favorites were Nicolas Italian, Mango Bay Bistro, Farlows, and Mama's Italian. Everyone in Manasota Key and Englewood were so friendly and laid back. We are already looking to return in the fall!

Owner's reply: And we are very much looking forward to the Reilly's return as well. It was such a pleasure working them !!!

“Englewood”

Reviewed 23 Mar 2015

I was not fortunate enough to get a booking at El Galleon, and had to stay a further distance from the beach. The property I stayed at met minimum expectations, but it didn't matter because I fell in love with Manasota Beach, englewood beach and stump Pass beach. Would love to return next year. Also enjoyed many restaurant in historic Englewood and nearby Venice. Maybe next time i will be able to book at El Galleon.

Owner's reply: So sorry that we were not able to accommodate Kate this season, but hopefully in 2016. Although we manage a total of 14 units at the El Galeon complex, it is becoming increasingly difficult to accommodate everyone . Our goal over the past 22 years has been to provide top notch accommodation to our guests and it would appear that we are achieving that goal, as we are now averaging over 75 % repeat guests. We look forward to working with Kate next year!!!

“Beautiful, peaceful beach location”

Reviewed 13 Dec 2014

The unit was exactly as described. The view was amazing from the room. We watched the dolphins swim by and collected shark teeth on the beach each day. Other than no balcony in our unit (2 bedroom) I have no negative feedback. Some days I never put on shoes. I just walked down to the beach barefoot, stopped by the heated pool for a dip at the end of the day and returned to our room to relax. There were great restaurants a very short walk away. There was a great supply of beach equipment under the condo building from chairs to buckets to umbrellas. We never wanted for anything. Marg was very nice when we met her and helpful through the process. We would definitely stay here again.

“Gulf Front Gem”

Reviewed 16 Nov 2014

We were pleasantly surprised by El Galleon By The Sea. The condo was clean, well appointed, and directly on the Gulf. We woke up to amazing bird shows and dolphins. Sunsets on the complex deck with others toasting the end of another glorious dayl

“Paradise Found”

We had a wonderful time at the house. It was everything we expected and perhaps a bit more. Very comfortable, convenient location. Would certainly stay there again.

“Perfect for a family of 6!”

Reviewed 25 Apr 2014

Our accommodations were perfect! We usually do not vacation in Florida and we were very pleased with this condo. The beach was a little "shelly" for us, but the property was beautiful overall. Our condo had items in it that we had forgotten to purchase, like garbage bags, beach chairs, boogie board etc... So we were very comfortable leaving laundry soap, a fishing pole, and other items there for others to share. The property was clean and everyone was nice. We vacation together all the time and were ok with the sleeping arrangements for 6!

“Gorgeous Beach”

Reviewed 24 Mar 2014

We went to El Galeon by the Sea and it was amazing!!!!! We had a wonderful time, and the fact that the beach was right at our finger tips was a bonus. Right from the time we booked our vacation, we had nothing by fantastic service. Marg took care of everything right from having a welcome package, to sending a forgotten cell phone. Everyday was a breathtaking view and beautiful accommodations. We would recommend this condo 100%, we will go back for sure.

Owner's reply: And we will be looking forward to your return !!! Very much enjoyed working with you!!!

“Condo by the beach”

Loved the place it was clean, steps from the beach. Pool was warm and relaxing. We had our 4 kids and they enjoyed themselves. Would go back in a heart beat!!!

Owner's reply: Thanks Nathalie for sharing your thoughts..we strive to provide our guests with accommodations that surpass their expectations and it is always nice to know that are goals are being met. We very much look forward to your return!!
