Englewood house description

Fall is a beautiful time in Southwest Florida. The beaches on the Gulf of Mexico are pristine, the water is that gorgeous color of aquamarine and it is off-season. No crowds, no traffic, just pure relaxation! Come stay with us, safe 15% and have the vacation you have always dreamed of. Get out of the cold and spend your Thanksgiving or Christmas Holidays in Florida. We won't have snow, but we do have white sand beaches!

This is a clean, well maintained home on a Canal with access to the Gulf of Mexico. There are two bedrooms with Queen Beds and 1 Bathroom with a Roman Shower for easy access. There is a living area as well as a family room so there is space for everyone. Two queen sleeper sofas provides sleeping accommodations for additional guests. Three TV's and WI-FI gives everyone their choice.

The yard is nicely landscaped with a tropical feel and a brand new dock makes outside pleasurable. We have created our own little 'beach area' nestled under palms by the seawall for you to relax with a book, or sit on the bench and fish. There is a screened cabana in the back yard for casual outdoor barbecues.

The home is in a quiet neighborhood where all streets dead end into the main canal. Great area for walking and biking with not a lot of thru traffic. A two-man Kayak is available as well to explore the canals and view all of the wildlife.

The house is well appointed with pots, pans, blender, coffee pot, etc. for all your cooking needs. Ample towels and new linens. Everything is fresh & clean!

Some of our finest restaurants as well as shopping are under five minutes away as well as three of the most beautiful beaches you have ever visited. Visit our local farm market on Dearborne Ave and shop the local hand crafted stores and antique shops. They have live music and local vendors on the weekends and a variety of events. There are many local churches of all denominations in the area, a local sports park with a pool, walking trails, basketball and skateboarding.

Englewood is truly a beautiful area, not too busy, but with all the amenities and services necessary to make your vacation special. The Gulf water is pristine, the shelling great and the fishing is superb! If you are a night-owl, we have some great bars & restaurants that host local entertainment so make sure you pack your dancing shoes.

Once you come, you will come back!

              Englewood Florida is centrally located between Tampa and Ft. Myers. Tampa is home Rays Baseball, Busch Gardens and Waterparks. Sarasota is a cultural hub with Museums, Botanical Gardens, Theaters. Englewood has three beautiful beaches all located on Manasota Key. I-75 is easily accessible and you can take numerous day trips. Disney, Epcot, MGM are all located in the Orlando area. Our fishing is superb and Boca Grande is only 20 minutes away and hosts the world's largest Tarpon tournament.


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2000

              About the owner: My husband, David & I have been married for 25 years and have 2 beautiful children who we raised here in Englewood. We are originally from Connecticut and lived in Pawley's Island, SC for 13 years before relocating permanently in 2004. We purchased our vacation home in 2000 on vacation and knew that we wanted to live here. We kept our vacation home for family and friends to come and enjoy this beautiful area.

              Why the Owner Chose Englewood:
              We bought our vacation home on our last day of our visit in Englewood. We had looked at properties from Anna Maria Island to Naples and Englewood had the best of all worlds. The house was a perfect size for vacation, centrally located to shopping and beaches and not an overly congested area. The neighborhood is quiet, well kept and having access to the Gulf of Mexico by boat was just what we were looking for. A 15-20 minute boat ride down the canal puts you into Lemon Bay and out Stump Pass to the Gulf. Fishing, swimming, all water related sports have always part of our family's lifestyle.
