Although this property was not right on the beach, it was very close. Also many restaurants and shops were within walking distance. There was everything there that you would need. We had 4 people staying there with plenty of room. We would definitely stay there again

Casa Soleil was a great duplex which provided us a great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We really had a great time in Englewood and the wonderful surrounding areas. Your house was so cheerful with your great colors and decor! It was so inviting and each evening it provided us a great, quiet place to enjoy a meal, kick back and get a good nights rest for our next adventure. And it is in a nice quiet neighborhood. Several nights we viewed the sunset by walking just a few blocks to the park.

The water filter container in the frig was an awesome idea! We filled it daily! It provided us with good, safe and needed drinking water on our hikes and times at the beaches. And we saved the environment.

At one of the parks, we picked up a Sarasota County map. It was with us all the time as it shows and describes many, many parks, preserves, and beaches. Be sure to pick one up!

We were blessed by several people we met on our many hikes. People on our hikes were so friendly and provided us with info on animals to watch for and other great places to visit and see wildlife. We found so many places to go hiking! When we were tired we visited the "Venice Rookery". Incredible island of nesting birds with their babies.

The many gulf beaches were great as we strolled along and saw several dolphins!

Thanks for a great place!

We had a very enjoyable month at CasaSoleil. The property is charming and well equipped with our every need. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the private deck. The location is perfect and the owners were always available for questions.

We highly recommend this property!

Our property is located two short blocks to the old Englewood Village where you can enjoy many restaurants, live music venues, a great library, the Englewood Farmers Market ( a foodies Paradise! every Thursday from October to May), the best ice cream parlor in town (one block away!), art festivals (first week of December and 3rd week in March) and many more fun things! We love our little town and love to share our favorite "secret" places!! And we own a fun restaurant within walking distance! (Mango Bistro). This is a perfect spot to enjoy and experience Old Florida while having several beautiful beaches 5 minutes away!!
