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.

Why The Owner chose Florida South West

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.

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this beach house during Christmas and New Years Eve. We loved it! We can't wait to return! Neal, the owner, is very nice and accommodating. This house is cute, comfortable, clean, and has the necessities to make your stay a relaxing experience. Bicycles are on the property to ride around the Key. I love the safe, non-commercialized location and the beautiful private beach where one can pick up shark teeth and beautiful shells. It's great that it is dog-friendly, allowing your fur-babies to stay with you!

The property was exactly as advertised. Out the back door to the beach and water.

  • 4 of 5

The property was exactly what we were looking for. Right on the water and we could hear the waves with windows open. It was well equipped and maintained and close to restaurants.

Clean and right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

I have been coming to this beach for years, and this was the cleanest property I've ever seen. It's right on the beach, so you just walk into the backyard or keep your back windows open for that beautiful ocean experience with the sound of waves. Can't wait to return!

Shoreview Drive, Englwood Beach, FL

  • 5 of 5

I'll have to admit, I'm a little spoiled. As sad as this is, I am typically not happy with the shower in vacation units. Not the case here. Awesome shower made my stay complete. I believe my Yorkie loves the sand more than we do. Having a place literally on the sand made this her favorite spot too. She spent more time outside than any other trip because of the private beach front location. This is, without a doubt, the most dog friendly, and dog convenient place we have ever stayed. Very well appointed, and very well taken care of.

Absolutely perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, and our border collie, have stayed here the past few years. The property is beautiful just as the pictures show. Take a few steps out the back door and you're on the beach which is very important to us. The apartment is clean, quiet, very comfortable, and perfect for us. Everything, including the laundry room, is up to date. The property owner, Neal, makes sure you have everything needed for a great vacation and it's reassuring to know that we can contact him anytime if we have questions or need something. I'm an avid shark tooth and shell collector and I've found hundreds of them on the beach right there. Whenever I take them out and look at them it brings back all the wonderful memories of our visits and I can hardly wait to get back there!
