Make this vacation rental home, your home away from home. Englewood is a beautiful beach community on the Gulf coast of Florida - with 4 world class beaches on Manasota key just minutes from this home.
Our home and the local areas of Englewood remain unscathed from the recent natural disasters.
Englewood is still that Old Florida and its more laid-back. In old Englewood, your views are probably the biggest views on the Inter-coastal for miles, "People don't just stumble across it. You've got to get off the beaten path to find it, and once you do, it's charming." There are two waterways, Lemon Bay and the Myakka River, that are excellent for fishing and Dearborn Street, a charming area, is free of chain stores, and on Thursdays they host a large FARMERS MARKET and local artistic fair. West of Dearborn street is a village-like cluster of older homes, some of them are on the shore of Lemon Bay with barrier-island views.
The Englewood / Manasota Key areas have been featured on several aired popular shows of HGTV “Beachfront Bargain Hunt”, showing many lovely areas.
This vacation property is pet friendly and child friendly - you will have privacy along with a fence attached to both sides of the home that contain safety gates which run down to the canal, fence and gates are required for pool safety in the backyard. Most of the waterfront property does not contain a fence between the canal and land, see photos.
Aside from the beaches, we are within walking distance (.6 miles) from a Super Walmart, many restaurants, and local shopping. We are also blocks of the Ann Dever Memorial Regional park that includes a scenic bike path, dog parks, children's play park, activity fields for sports, and a community pool.
This property has 2 wonderful family rooms, one with scenic water views with both rooms having televisions including cable and one family room has a pull out queen size bed (couch) which would accommodate 2 more guest, total of 8 sleeping arrangements .
Bedroom 1: A Master with a King size bed, glass door to the screened lanai, in ground pool and scenic water views. Large TV with COMCAST cable, and a suite spa like bathroom with a walk in shower.
Bedroom 2: A double bed with glass doors to the screened in lanai, in ground pool and scenic water views.
Bedroom 3: A single bed with a slide out trundle bed making it a queen size. A glass door to a private screened-in porch.
Again, the sofa-sleeper in the front family den pulls out to a queen size sleeper which can accommodate 2 adults.
Home can comfortably sleep 8.
There is a fully equipped kitchen with a table that seats 6, a side by side refrigerator / freezer, dishwasher, toaster, microwave, and a regular size 4-burner glass top stove and oven.
The house includes COMCAST / Hi-Speed internet service with great Wi-Fi reception.
The large lanai and bedrooms have been recently upgraded with new paint, furniture and are completely furnished, has electric screen overhead doors, contains a new gas barbecue grill, you can sit, relax, enjoy the scenic water views, in-ground HEATED swimming pool and watch the lovely Florida birds.
We do have bicycles in the garage for you to use. We do not offer the use of bike helmets due to sanitary reasons, they can be purchased at Walmart at a reasonable price.
Our home-care-provider, Maggie and her husband John offer many services to the home and additional services to the guest at a fee. Should this interest you, you would inquire with them. They can arrange bi-monthly house keeping/cleaning, rental boat-slip if you own your own boat, possible airport pickup service, and answer any questions you may have. They live within the neighborhood and do maintenance from time to time; such as, maintaining the lawns, care for the pool and minor maintenance. We do have the home serviced with an exterminator and they will need to come in at random times to service the inside and out. Maggie will be contacted when these dates occur.

About Karen/Steve Seay
Our names are Steve and Karen and we purchased the Englewood home as for our future retirement retreat. During a visit with friends, we fell in love with the Englewood area; we found it offered everything that we both desire and private compared to the Atlanta area of were we now reside. (Our search started several years ago searching within the Florida beach / waterway areas.) Our search started within a 10 mile radius of Englewood and found our-self narrowing the radius and returning back to Englewood area for the reasons of coastal homes, close to shopping, the beach, medical/hospital and nearby friends. Our home is nested in a quaint, private location and surrounded by natural waterways with all kinds of marine-life, birds, and a relax retreat environment. We just love Englewood and looking forward to having it as our full-time residence. We hope that you will experience the same during your stay at our lovely home in Englewood, Florida.
Karen/Steve Seay purchased this House in 2017
Why Karen/Steve Seay chose Englewood
This is unique personal property and very private. Please note the photos, you will notice a large section of natural lush mangrove trees and landscaping, just as it looked hundreds of years ago. A piece of property with natural beauty, all can be seen from the lanai and the backside of all rooms in the house.
What makes this House unique
Note photos, our VRBO review status, the property and views are spectacular, just bring your clothes, necessary toiletries, visit a local grocery store and enjoy a relaxed stay away from home. As of today, 03/05/2018, if you have reservations, you are in luck as our past renters are wanting to reserve again during 2019 of which some months have been reserved. With all that being said, we should own more property in Englewood, Florida to meet the needs of our former guest.

EXCEPTIONAL,EVERYTHING A RENTER COULD ASK FOR AND MORE.BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY,QUIET,CLEAN
First of all the homeowner Karen is amazing! She communicates with you right away and helps you with whatever you need to know to get your trip started off right. And then from the moment you step into her home you are blown away! Not just with the amazing view but truly they have thought of everything to make sure your stay is perfect! It's so comfortable, clean, and just truly feels like home. Although better because there's no stress! An an amazing area. Beautiful beaches! We enjoyed shell seeking and shark tooth hunting. And all the beaches north and south of Englewood are fantastic for both! Loved visiting Myakka River State Park. It's about 45min form Englewood but it's worth it. Beautiful walking paths and huge Gators! We really didn't experience any restaurants because the seafood markets are great and we couldn't stay away long from Karen's home. After the beach we couldn't wait to get back, make a cocktail, grill some seafood and enjoy the beautiful view! Thank you Karen for making our trip spectacular! Can't wait to return! It was a dream come true!
It was a pleasure to have you and your husband as a guest in our home. You too communicated very well and when you phoned, I was so delighted to talk about your vacation at our home and lovely Englewood, Florida. Additionally, as I said before, we will need to meet up for coffee one day. Wanted to let you know that our neighbors and Maggie had great things to say about you and your husband and our prior family guest from Canada. They had mentioned that you all were a pleasure to have as guest within our neighborhood. We do hope you can return and our home is available for rental throughout November and December of 2018. Please keep in touch, Karen
The perfect vacation home. We have stayed at many rental locations over the last few years and this is one of the best. Home away from home. Wonderfully decorated and clean. Everything is provided for your convenience in the home and enjoyment out of the home. Bikes, Kayaks, beach chairs. Karen is a great host, very responsive and courteous. Maggie the home care provider is just around the corner and very pleasant to talk to as well as helpful. Everything was to our satisfaction and we would gladly return and recommend to others.
Beautiful and Meticulous
Choosing to stay at this property on my vacation was one of the best decisions I ever made. Every room was tastefully decorated giving the entire house a tropical vibe. This property is only a hop, skip, and a jump away from the beach. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here, and will definitely be staying here again. I recommend this property to anyone who wants a clean, well-kept house with all the amenities one could ask for.
Dear Ms. Hanna:
We are delighted that you choose our vacation home away from home and all the extra amenities that you so were looking for to enjoy while there.
We hope you enjoyed meeting the neighbors, the closeness to local shopping, dining and our local beaches; but finding our home as a tropical oasis. It is private and away from city living.
Thank you for leaving a nice review, hope have you choose our home again in the near future.
Beautiful, Private Oasis Away From Home
I was originally a little nervous to stay in a rental, but the owners of this home made me feel very comfortable and welcome. While there are other homes in the area, I felt like I was in my own private resort. Everything was clean upon arrival and all setup for me to enjoy my stay. I would wake up, eat breakfast outside in their screened-in area, take a kayak out on the canal, then relax on the beach (only a couple of miles away), before heading to bed in a quiet and peaceful environment. Would definitely stay again.
Dear Ms. Johnson, We are so delighted that you enjoyed your stay, our home away from home and the environment that it has to offer. We hope to have you as a guest again in the near future.
There is a local Walmart which is very close along with other shopping and fine dining. You can also take a short drive to Sarasota, Fort Myers, or Port Charlotte; these areas offer Sam's Club, BJ's and Costco Wholesales.
