I have been here since 1995 and take pride in my families home to not only keep it in great shape and nice than other properties but I keep improving it every year to make it the BEST. Below is information on me but talk with me personally and lets visit. I like to get to know my guest and they like to come back that's why I have 36% repeat business this year.941.661.0371. I am from Colorado my fiancé Caroline is from Rhode Island. I moved to Florida back in 1995. Both of us work in the medical field. I am a USCG Master Captain and a NAUI dive instructor and we both spend a lot of time on our boat at our beach or on the motorcycle. If you stay at our home and want rent a boat, charter a fishing trip, go scuba diving or rent a Harley Davison and ride around I can help you out. Caroline is the tour guide and shopping guide person and can tell you where all the malls and outlet stores are in Sarasota which is 1to the 5 to 20 minutes away.
Scott purchased this House in 2005
Why Scott chose Englewood
We take great pride in our home. This quaint beach house is within easy walking distance to a Tiki bar on the bay, fine dining and casual restaurants as well as a convenience store and other shopping and boardwalk. We have simply tried to think of everything you would want, or need, to make your vacation a very special experience. We are literally 150 feet from one of the most beautiful beaches that Florida has to offer, as well as being only 600 feet from Lemon Bay. Bring your boat, use one of the nearby ramps, rent a dock or moor on the bay. You will have direct access to the Gulf of Mexico within minutes. This is a renowned fished and boating area. You can surf cast off the beach from anywhere on the island, or charter boats for tarpon, flounder, grouper, mackerel or redfish.It doesn't get any better than this! This home is the perfect getaway from the bustle and noise of everyday life, or to enjoy the glamour and excitement of Florida's Gulf Coast. The choice is yours:Spend a day at the beach, just doing...nothingExplore protected wildlife areas and bird sanctuariesVisit Stump Pass State Park or Dine at one of the local restaurants. This home is only minutes (0.4 miles) from some of the finest dining and nightlife in Florida. The area also has plenty of opportunities for shopping, golf, boating, fishing and much more. We are within easy driving distance of many of Florida's most popular cities and attractions. Venice and Sarasota are a short drive, and provide many cultural attractions and unusual shopping opportunities. We are within a 2-3 hour drive of Tampa/St.Petersburg, Orlando (Disney World), Fort Myers and Naples.
What makes this House unique
Location! Location! Location! Beach is a stones throw away! 150 feet. No busy roads to cross and you don't have to walk blocks to find a place to access the beach like most other places and we are a family home not a rental! Restaurant's, Bars, State Park and Public Beach all within 1/2 to 3/4 mile. Also we are in a really nice residential street not condos!
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Great time at the Beach and Beach House.
My family and I had a great time at this Manasota Key beach house. The house was every thing that the online site mentioned. Very clean and stocked with all kitchen and bath, only needed to bring food and drink. The owners were in contact before our trip with all information we needed. The beach itself was beautiful and quite. Plenty of room to relax and the water Beutiful. We will defiantly be back!
What a mess
Place was filthy when we arrived! Took multiple photos - old food in fridge, clothes strewn everywhere, cigarette butts in ashtray, lawn in disarray - nothing at all like the photos.. Washing machine broken upon arrival and filled with dirty water/clothes from Saturday until Tuesday night. No privacy from son's constant interruptions - for no real reason. Daily visits Sun/Mon/Tue/Wed from owner or his son.
Price charged was not price listed on web site. Owner said that is VRBO not him and to address with VRBO.
After paying airfare and traveling down to FL with my family and arriving to that mess, I was completely humiliated on top of enduring the mess.
Enjoyed the privacy of the beach and the characters at the local White elephant.. teens liked the pool table.
Thank you Donna, you are welcomed back anytime!
A Quick Getaway
I recommend this property to anyone looking for a getaway that offers plenty of outdoor activities, good restaurants, a laid-back atmosphere, and fun at the beach. This home is exactly as advertised, just steps from the beach, situated on a quiet lane, tropically landscaped yard that provided a much needed, relaxing vacation. The house is well maintained with an updated kitchen and bath. There were more amenities than my husband and I needed, but certainly very appreciated. The shed is full of beach equipment, in addition, bicycles were available for our use, which was an unexpected bonus. Thank you, Scott and Ryan, for being perfect hosts and we look forward to visiting again.
Deborah, you are so very welcome, and thank you for leaving such a wonderful review. I can tell that you clearly had an dtime here this year, and hope to see you again in the future!
