Apt. is directly on the beach, directly on the Gulf of Mexico waters. This Apt. is perfect for 2 people with 2 children or a weekend guest.

Waking up in the morning your door opening right onto the beach is one of the most satisfying feelings that you have arrived in paradise.

About The Owner

Hi, my name is Neal Borasch I have been in the service industry for over 25 years I live by a very simple rule, we treat people like family. We want your experience to be a great one, a memorable one and something that you can share with your entire family.

Thank You,

Why The Owner chose Englewood

I have traveled around alot in the Caribbean and found that Englewood Beach Florida was what I was looking for, without the tourist hassles or inconveniences that go with traveling outside of the U.S.

Every morning you wake up you'll find yourself opening your door directly onto this beautiful beach.

What makes this condo unique

There are over 30 Championship Golf courses within 25 minutes. The tennis court is just a lob away. Great fishing outside your door, or go deep sea fishing down the street.

Water skiing, jet skiing, sailing and tubing don't need mittens for that.

Hunt for sharks teeth,shells and Ponce Deleon gold coins to be found. Dolphins, Manatee's, Tarpon, and lots of Sea Birds are just abundant right in front of your apt.

Ponce Deleon founded this area looking for the fountain of youth, some say he found it at Warm Mineral Springs just 20 minutes from where he first landed here. If your a star gazer than you got the right place, at night you'll see so many stars it's incredible, the Milky Way is even visible and if your timing is right you'll see a sunset and a moon set.

You won't see anything more spectacular than the beach lit by the full moon, it is one of the most romantic places that is so easy to get to in the U.S.

There's alot you can do here or you can do absolutely 'Nothing' why not you deserve it!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I tend to be rather demanding in my requirements for accommodations, and I love this studio apartment in Englewood. This is a lovely studio on the beautiful sandy beach. The accommodations were clean and very comfortable - especially the king sized bed. The owners have thought of everything and added little touches that really made the place special. The high speed wifi is a plus. Neal (owner) also is very helpful with local information and activity suggestions. I will definitely stay here again.

Perfect in most every way. Had a great get a way however too short! Hoping top get a reservation for at least a month. Owner is very attentive and concerned about any concerns we had. Hopefully next year.

Shout out to our fine neighbors Jim and Tina too. Great folks.

Nothing between you and the beach!

  • 4 of 5

The property itself is clean and well kept. You are right on the beach with unobstructed views.

The owner is nearby and attentive, checking in several times a day. We never felt neglected.

Shelling is wonderful and nearby restaurants are good.

Great long weekend in a well maintained unit with an owner who's concerned about his guests' stay.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the long weekend with our family and had the added luxury of being able to bring our dogs. The unit was as advertised, the private area out back with several umbrellas was fantastic and Neil was very hospitable and concerned with how our stay was going. This was our first time staying here, but we'll definitely be booking again for our future vacations in Englewood.
