Property description

These beautifully appointed Cottages, located in the artists' district of Olde Englewood, are 2 minutes' drive from the famous conservation area of Dearborn Street. There are many things to do in the area for recreation and relaxation including boating, fishing, golf, shopping, live music and great restaurants. Sarasota is 45 minutes away, Orlando, 3 hours away and Fort Myers, 1 hour away.

In Olde Englewood, there are several excellent restaurants, many having live music: Mango Bistro (www.mangobistro.com), Zeke's Uptown Bar and Grill (www.zekesuptown.com), Englewoods on Dearborn (www.englewoods.tripod.com), Vino Loco (www.vinolocowine.com), Compadres Mexican Restaurant, La Stanza Italian Restaurant (www.lastanzaristorante.com), Bobarino's Pizzeria and the Ole Time Cafe (www.oletimecafe.com), which is great for breakfast. In addition, there is Snook's Bayside Bar & Grill at Royal Palm Marina (www.royalpalmmarina/dining.html). All of these restaurants offer great food and atmosphere.

The Cottages have everything you will need for an enjoyable and comfortable stay. There is a beautiful large, fenced yard with many plants and trees which is secluded for relaxing and barbecuing on your private decks. The decks are accessed directly from the Cottages so you can go outside to enjoy the incredible Florida mornings, sitting drinking a cup of coffee and reading the morning paper. And in the evenings, you can enjoy sitting by the fire pit which is located in an additional seating area in the centre of the yard.

The kitchens are fully fitted with a stove, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, pots & pans and dishes, glasses, cups,silverware and cooking utensils and the dining areas each have a 42-inch round table with four chairs and comfy seat covers.

The spacious bedrooms each have a queen-sized bed, night stands, chest of drawers, built-in closet and en-suite bathrooms which are bright and cheery and have a nice strong shower.

The cozy living rooms with leather Lay-Z-Boy recliners, a Samsung 32-inch LED HD television with satellite and an iPod docking station completes your relaxing experience in beautiful Olde Englewood. WiFi is included.

If you want to bring your boat, you can either negotiate to moor it at Royal Palm Marina which is a block away, or you can park it at the Cottages and launch it, when you want to go out, into Lemon Bay from Indian Mound Park which is a 5-minute drive away.

Englewood Beach on Manasota Key is 10 minutes' drive away and here you will find several excellent restaurants for lunch or dinner, most of which also provide live music. Some of these are Lock and Key (www.lockandkeyrestaurant.com), Flounders (www.floundersonthebeach.com), the White Elephant, The Gulfview Grill (www.thegulfviewgrill.com), and the Beach Road Wine Bar and Bistro.

Other nearby restaurants that offer dining on the water are The Fishery (www.sunstate.com/fishery), Farlow's (www.farlowsonthewater.com), Sharkey's of Venice (www.sharkeysonthepier.com) and Casey Key Fish House (www.caseykeyfishhouse.com).

The two Cottages are located in an attractive, quiet area that is typically 'Old Florida' on the lovely Gulf Coast. The main street in Olde Englewood, Dearborn Street, hosts a number of regular activities which attract people from the surrounding area, such as Saturday Night Live - shops are open late and lots of live music -, Wine Walks and Wine Tasting, Cruizin' Dearborn - classic car show along the street, live music, shops open late - and a Farmer's Market every Thursday morning. In addition, there is the Lemon Bay Playhouse which has a season of plays and musical entertainment.

Depending on the time of year you are visiting, you can have the opportunity to participate in a number of specific seasonal events, such as a Spring Arts Festival, Cinco de Mayo and Pioneer Days, to name a few.

There are several excellent restaurants on Dearborn Street and in the local area offering a variety of cuisine to suit all tastes. Most of the restaurants provide live music covering a range of style ensuring a fun, relaxing and enjoyable evening.

Down in Fort Myers, there are interesting attractions such as Thomas Edison's and Henry Ford's Winter Estates, Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel and Captiva Islands and an refurbished retro downtown area.

Boca Grande, famous for the Bush family vacations, is approx half an hour's drive from Englewood and is the home of the beautiful Gasparilla Inn.

North of Englewood, you have Venice Beach, where you you can often spot dolphins and beautiful Siesta Key, where the beach is listed as one of the top 10 beaches of the world. And then, north a little further, in Sarasota, you will find the Ringling Brothers' Museums.

Closer to home, Englewood Beach and Stump Pass State Park are on Manasota Key which is 10 minutes' drive from the Cottage. Lemon Bay Park and Environmental Center is a stone's throw away. Here you will find a nature trail, butterfly garden, eagle nest viewing areas, canoe/kayak launch, boardwalks, picnic pavilion, picnic shelters, grills, park benches and environmental center.

If golf is your sport of choice, there are private golf courses nearby, such as Boca Royal Golf & Country Club and Jacaranda West Country Club, and a number of public golf courses, such as Myakka Pines Golf Course, Oyster Creek Golf & Country Club and Stoneybrook Golf & Country Club, to name but three.
