The laid back, fun time we enjoyed at Turtle Bay Condos was just what we were hoping for. Our host provided a clean, well maintained and amply stocked place that we immediately settled in to. Beach is gorgeous and surrounding restaurants and parks were supportive for great food and entertainment. Thank you for being a fine host!

This is a great deal overall, the condo development is small but the manager, Susan, is excellent, and a lot is included that isn't in many other places. This was our 2nd stay. First time back in spring we stayed in Bldg. 3 and it couldn't have been better. This time we stayed in 2B because the 3rd bldg wasn't available. Everything was the same, really good. Except the beds. Horrible is the best word. I woke up in pain. It was bad. Beds, mattresses, whatever, this is, in my opinion, not the place to skimp if you're renting a place to sleep. It's #1 in importance. The TV was extremely bad too but that isn't a big deal to me. Sleep, however, is. Avoid any bldg. except for #3 is my advice.

These guests stayed in April 2019 and wrote us a five star review. I was pleased to welcome them back the same year. I was running a special of "book two nights and get the third free" so they were surprised and very happy to have me volunteer this deal.

This booking was 1 1/2 months ago. I did not hear from them during their stay. I always write our guests after their departure to let them know I hoped they enjoyed themselves and to ask if there was anything I should know about the condo to keep it in tip top shape. I was totally caught off guard to see this review posted 1 1/2 months later.

I attempted to reach the guest but their phone has been disconnected. I replace our beds on a regular basis and certainly sooner if we get complaints. I have had no complaints about the beds or the TV so I'm really confused by this review.

Our guests are always encouraged to reach out to me if they need anything. Customer service is number one as well as a clean, well-furnished condo.

We love welcoming you back year after year. It's so obvious how much you look forward to your vacation on Manasota Key and staying with us. You always pick a quiet time on the Key which is such a wonderful way to enjoy the beach and Lemon Bay.

Thank you for your loyalty and we look forward to seeing you again.

This was our second time staying at Turtle Bay Condos and the second time was as good as the first!
Accommodation
We stayed in 3b which overlooked Lemon Bay! This was lovely as you could watch the sun rise in the morning and we were also lucky enough to see dolphins one day from the dock . 3b has 2 bedrooms and a sofa bed. The master bedroom has a tv as well as as tv in the main room. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you would need including an electric hot plate which we made pancakes on!
Communication
Susan, the owner, is excellent and responds to all queries quickly. Booking is easy and we are always impressed with the smooth process of booking and checking in and out!
The beach
Manasota Key is a beautiful stretch of beach and is a short walk across the street from Turtle Bay. Th condo is well stocked with chairs and 2 parasols to take to the beach so you can sit there in comfort. We were lucky to see dolphins and a manatee off the beach on more than one occasion! They come quite close in and if you enjoy seeing dolphins this is a perfect place to be. We also spotted a sea plane one morning!
Turtles
One of most exciting things we discovered was the ‘turtle patrol’. At 6:45 in the morning, every morning from March to October a group of volunteers monitor the nests of loggerhead turtles who have laidback their eggs on this stretch of beach! If you are lucky you will see them excavate a nest 3 days after it has hatched. This is for the purpose of counting the eggs for research and if you are lucky, and we were, you will see them release any trapped baby turtles from the nest and you can watch the baby turtles make their way from the nest to the ocean! These volunteers receive rigorous training so that they do not disturb the natural hatching process but they are happy to explain the process to you as you walk with them! Seeing a baby turtle make its way to the water is magical and is only a few minutes from your condo! We only discovered this a week into our stay so we did not go every morning but we wished we had.
Location
Turtle Bay is well placed for shopping and restaurants. We went to several malls from Englewood including the outlet at Ellenton and a mall in Port Charlotte. There is a Walmart and Publix a short drive away.
This is a fantastic place to stay and we will definitely be back! We also made some lovely American friends whilst here and hope to see them again some day!
