Unit # 505 was wonderful, and we loved our stay!!!
Our stay in Villa #505 was everything we hoped for. The villa was bright & cherry, beautifully decorated, clean and perfect for our stay. We loved the open balcony, beach, pool, and it had everything we needed to make our stay very enjoyable. We plan to come back next March. Thank you Marg for all your help...

Thanksgiving on Manasota Key
Our condo at El Galeon by the Sea was wonderful. We were steps from the beach and our huge picture window in the living room gave us a spectacular view from sunrise to sunset. The unit was beautifully decorated and we all loved the loft bedroom and bathroom. There was nothing that we needed that was not provided and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare Thanksgiving dinner! Thank you to Marg Johnson for helping us secure this rental property on very short notice. She is a “hands on” property manager who was waiting for us upon our arrival and was never more than a phone call away. We highly recommend El Galeon by the Sea and plan to visit again!

I am so glad that we were able to accommodate you for your Thanksgiving vacation! We were very fortunate at El Galeon By The Sea...our damage from Hurricane Ian was minimal and we were able to reopen on October 8th. Tourism revenue is the key to Englewood's recovery and your visit was an essential part of that recovery process. THANK YOU again for supporting our community and letting everyone know that beautiful Manasota Key is back up and running !! Looking forward to your next visit !

Looking forward to it Dawn!!! You were an absolute pleasure to work with!!! just let me know when you are ready for another great vacation!!!
El Galleon's the perfect place to take your family, it's beautiful and the sunsets are breathtaking. El galleon is on both sides of the island so you can dock your boat and stay on either side bayside or beachside. I vacationed here every year with my family growing up and my parents did as well when they were young, highly recommended and the fishing is great too.

Amazing contdo with seaside sunset views
We love El Galeon by the Sea! We have been staying here for almost 15 years. This elevated, modern condo is located right on the quiet sandy beach of Manasota Key. Sunsets are amazing, dolphins a delight! The condo is freshly decorated, clean, comfortable and well equipped. Heat pool is a bonus on cool days though we spend most time on the deck, ocean side. Marg has been looking after us for all these years and is most accommodating. She was a great help in assisting us in locating a reliable lab for our PCR test back to Canada, and has wonderful restaurant and local suggestions. As a warning, there is a flight of stairs to the condo, which could present a challenge to some. This is a lovely quiet setting, yet walking distance to several waterside restaurants.

Wonderful beachside condo!
We rented a 1 bedroom unit (#601) and it had everything we could have needed - beach towels, umbrella & chairs; fully furnished kitchen, washer & dryer in the unit, king bed, 2 balconies. Just steps to the beach, and a roomy furnished deck to watch the sunset or grill your dinner. Roomy and very comfortable, as well as quite affordable. We had a lovely week over Christmas with gorgeous weather! Thank you El Galeon - we’ll be back!Bryan & Stephanie Davenport, Iowa

We stayed at coquina cove and it was breathtaking. We’ve stayed before at one of Marg’s properties and it was incredible. We were there for the Fourth of July and it was just spectacular we had no idea we would get to see such a incredible firework display. Besides that we also saw two baby leatherback turtles make their way to the ocean and watched dolphins from our balcony. The perfect family home and can not wait for next year. Thank you for the amazing memories.

I stayed at unit 607 at Galeon by the sea and it was really nice. It was a last minute booking to come visit my sick mother and Marg Johnston ( the rental manager)was extremely helpful! She expedited everything so I could book the unit last minute. My neice who lives in Englewood stayed with me and we were very comfortable. Everything we needed was supplied in the unit. It was nice and clean, tastefully decorated with two outdoor balconies, one overlooking the heated pool. The pool was the perfect temp and we enjoyed our time in it. There was a lovely deck right on the beach which we enjoyed immensely. We used one of the available charcoal grills to cook dinner and sat overlooking g the ocean and sunsets. The beds were comfy and the laundry facility in the unit was convenient to have. We enjoyed our stay very much and would definitely rent again. Thank you!
