Just a "heads up" for anyone out there renting a property through Manasota Key Realty. We booked a place for a week, a few months ago for a trip in January. We found it through VRBO/Home Away. We payed the deposit and thought we were all set, until we received an email from them saying our reservation had been canceled because they found a renter for the full month!! They were willing to put us up in a condo, but we had our hearts set on being on the beach in this unit. Since then I have discovered that they often cancel renters, sometimes just a few weeks before the scheduled trip.
We did find a place on the beach, booking with Sunshine Rentals www.sunshinerentals.net
Marg Johnson was sooo nice and accomodating and assured us she would not cancel us. She also doesn't charge any extra fees for cleaning, booking etc. Highly recommend her!!
Just wanted everyone to know about Manasota Key Realty so you wont be disappointed.
