About the owner: I’m an island mom that lives in Orlando with my two boys and husband. We ended up at Manasota Key after my birthday cruise got cancelled due to the pandemic . This place is magical for me because it helped me get distracted from anxiety and our city life. Our boys love the beach, I’m in love with hearing the waves from my lanai and hope you can come visit and see what the key has to offer.
Why this property? We have remodeled the floors, kitchen, appliances are new. You have it all towels, linens, washer, dryer, toaster, coffee maker, rice cooker, etc.
I was born in Puerto Rico so we have made the apartment have an island feel with a modern touch. The unit is fully stocked and you will have an assigned shaded parking spot. Manasota key has so much to offer from kayaks to boat rentals. Venice and Sarasota are close by as well.

Great Manasota Key Location
We spent the month of March at Marie’s Vitamin Sea condo. It was a great size for a couple, but had plenty of room for guests. We spent the majority of our time on the screened lanai or on the beach. There are fun local restaurants and the condo is a short drive over the bridge for shopping. We have stayed on Manasota Key other years, but found Marie to be the best and most responsive host we have had. Thank you, Marie, for sharing your beach home with us.

Vitamin Sea good for the soul!
Vitamin Sea was an overall wonderful beach experience! Our unit was comfortable. The lanai perfect,many meals and books read on it! Having a washer ad dryer a very nice convenience. Kitchen could use a bit of an upgrade with time. The pool a real bonus! Sunsets breathtaking! !

We LOVED it!
We are a family of four and due to the pandemic, still a bit hesitant about big crowds including hotel stays. We can simply say that our stay was amazing! From the booking to the check out. It was our first time in Manasota Key and the owner made sure she was available to answer any questions. The rooms were great and more spacious than in the pictures. My husband and I truly enjoyed having our cup of coffee every morning with that incredible ocean view! We will be back!

Perfect kid-friendly beach condo
This two bedroom condo on Manasota Key was the perfect location for our extended trip to Florida to visit with family. The condo is nicely furnished with comfortable beds and two areas for dining. We enjoyed eating on the lanai and having a view of the gulf. Parking was easy and the entire complex felt very safe. The locals gather at the end of the complex by the beach every evening to watch the sunset over the water, and everyone was very friendly. The pool was fantastic as well. The beach is very private and there is plenty of space to claim your spot for the hour or day. We saw dolphins and a few manatees! If you walk to the front of the condo and cross Beach to get to the other side of the road, a quick 2 minute walk straight ahead will take you to a bridge where the manatees play and swim up close. Parks and restaurants were very close to the complex. Marie was a joy to work with in booking her place. We will visit again!

Thank you Laura for trusting us with a safe space to create memories and using Florida Rentals #10305.
This place is amazing. I needed to disconnect from the world for a couple of weeks and it was perfect. The beach was a great location with not many people, peaceful and awesome. The apartment is super big, clean and perfect. The area has some cool restaurants and things to do and of course a little bit of shopping. I will recommend this to anyone. Can’t wait to go back to the hidden gem.

Spent a fabulous vacation at this tropical oasis on Florida’s beautiful gulf coast! The location is ideal with all the amenities needed to enjoy and relax. It was our home away from home...the unit was clean and remodeled very tastefully. We highly recommend this property if you are looking to get away and enjoy the sun, sand and sea!

What a great place! It’s exactly as described. It’s super clean and cozy space that is very well decorated in a beach vibe. Just walk down to your private and beautiful Gulf of Mexico waters.I loved the neighborhood as well. It was laid back but close enough to restaurants and shops.We definitely recommend this gem to anyone. The owners are very friendly, attentive and responsive.

Wish I could move and live here! Book it and recharge!
Me and my husband were looking to disconnect from the noise and buzz of our city life, recharge batteries and found this piece of heaven. The apartment is spacious, beautifully decorated and has everything you need to have a wonderful stay. We rented kayaks, jet skiies nearby and had lunch and dinner in some of the local restaurants. But to be honest, nothing can beat an afternoon in the lanai and the private beach which is a few steps from the apartment. Totally recommended!!
