Perfect vacation home
Perfect vacation home
We (couple from Switzerland) just came home from a 10 days stay. Awesome! Everything was perfect and couldn't be any better! Clean, spacious, well equipped. We enjoyed the beautiful house, the wonderful pool area and the dock! It is extremely quiet and the neighbors are very friendly. We spent a truly relaxing vacation. If coming back to the area, we certainly would choose this home for our vacation again!!

This home has everything a family needs to be comfortable. The house is so beautiful and spacious. We spent a week there with our shelties and had such an awesome time that we just got home from doing it again. Even when you aren't in the pool, you can watch all the action from almost any room in the house. My son loved fishing from the the dock and we went out on our boat every day. We really liked watching dolphins and manatees at the dock. Loved the up to date kitchen and we had everything we needed to cook with ease. Wifi was a hit. The neighborhood is lovely and private. We spent 2 separate weeks without one disappointment. Can't wait to do it again. Awesome experience for all 3 generations.

Owner response: Many folks come back for a second stay. We love this because we sort of get to know folks over time...almost like an extended family! and it makes us happy to know that others enjoy the house as much as we do.

My wife's mother lives in Englewood and has been ill. We were looking for a rental property that we could share with our small dog and two grown sons for a few days. This house was perfect since it was close to the inlaws and provided more than enough room for everyone. It was everything we had hoped for and more. We were able to relax and visit with the inlaws while the boys enjoyed the sunshine and the pool. The kitchen was amazing and was well stocked with a variety of pots, pans and utensils which made cooking a big dinner for everyone really enjoyable. We have rented other homes that only had a couple of beat up pans and a few mismatched plates and silverware. This was not the case here. We had everything we could possible wanted to create any kind of food we could imagine. There were televisions in every room making it possible for everyone to stay entertained. The boys could watch sports in one room while we watched cooking shows in another. Our little dog was endlessly entertained by watching the boats come and go in the waterway. I also appreciated being able to access the free WiFi on my phone, tablet, and laptop. I sure wish we had been visiting under better circumstances, and could have stayed longer. We look forward to returning sometime for an actual vacation. Thank you so much for a great experience.

Owner response: I am so glad that this worked out for you.... .I love to cook and stocked the kitchen with everything I would need..... and happily it is everything YOU would need too; and who can live without WiFi these days? Hope you can come back soon for another visit.
Wonderful hosts and very clean and beautifully decorated home. Was perfect for us and very spacious. Stayed there with my husband and my three little kids. I have no complaints.

Owner response: Our updated decor has been a hit with guests. The house is comfortable for young and old alike, being all on one level, and no stairs to climb (or fall down!) . So glad the kids had a good time too

We (family from Germany with two kids) spent three weeks in this beautiful house in 2012. It is a super equipped home with a private boat dock. Almost everyday we have seen here manatees and also for fishing we had success. The view from the pool and the sunset is awesome! The couch in the livingroom was so comfortable with the giant television we felt like being in the cinema. Our TV at home were suddenly very small! Neighbors were very friendly and helpful.The house is situated in a beautiful and quiet area and is still well connected to everything. We have rented houses in the region of Venice before, this is one of the best we have seen.It certainly it will not be our last visit here! Many thanks to the owners who have allowed us an unforgettable holiday with her great house! Wir durften 2012 drei Wochen in diesem schönen Haus verbringen. Es ist ein super ausgestattetes Haus mit einem eigenen Bootsdock. Fast jeden Tag konnten wir hier vorbeischwimmende Manatees beobachten und auch beim Angeln hatten wir Erfolg.Der Blick von dem Pool auf den Kanal und die untergehende Sonne ist genial! Die Couch im Wohnzimmer ist so komfortabel, dass wir sie am liebsten mit nach Hause genommen hätten. Der riesen Fernseher lies Kinofeeling aufkommen und unsere Fernseher zu Hause kamen uns plötzlich ganz klein vor. Die Nachbarn waren sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Das Haus liegt in einer schönen und ruhigen Gegend und ist dennoch verkehrstechnisch gut angebunden. Wir haben schon früher Häuser in der Region Venice gemietet, dieses gehört mit zu den Besten. Sicherlich wird es nicht unser letzter Besuch hier gewesen sein. Vielen Dank an die Besitzer die uns mit ihrem tollen Haus einen unvergesslichen Urlaub ermöglicht haben!

About the owner: We live in Atlanta but love the Gulf of Mexico, having brought our children there every summer for the past twenty years. Fishing and boating have been family activities that we have enjoyed together. Originally from NC and upstate NY, we love the tropical weather of south Florida.
Why the Owner Chose Englewood:
We began seaching south Florida for a potential retirement home and fell in love with the laid-back atmosphere of the Englewood area. Although actual retirement is several years away, we have enjoyed boating and fishing every chance we get. The bird watching is spectacular, and we love to see the manatee and dolphin right by our dock. We can't wait to share our home with you.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Englewood Isles community is beautifully maintained, with friendly neighbors and wonderful views. Being close to the larger cities of Sarasota and Tampa, as well as the attactions of Orlando nearby, makes this area the perfect spot to relax, and yet enjoy the dining and culture available nearby. Having the pool right outside the master bedroom makes early morning and late evening dips a daily pleasure.
