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 and being on the West coast of Florida you have the most spectacular sunsets anywhere! There is no place better than to just sit out under our large umbrellas and just look at the Gulf of Mexico all day long, never gets boring.

The apt. has extra large windows where you never lose sight of the beach or the Gulf of Mexico. Manasota Key, Englewood beach is a Caribbean vacation without the hassles of leaving the states. Not far away you can venture thru the sea bird sanctuary that is Stump Pass Park with crystal clear blue waters or simply walk, bike ride or drive to get a little city life or just sit outside sunning yourself and watch the parade of dolphin's, manatee's & seabirds that go by daily. Play golf, bike, jet ski, sailing, motor boating, dine out, BBQ or go deep sea fishing or water nature tours, fish right off the beach. If you don't catch anything, you don't have your pole in the water!

Englewood is far safer, better protected and a better place to relax and shake off stress than anywhere else i have been.

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 we want to be treated. 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. Please read over all property, apartment description and amenities before renting, we want you to be totally and completely satisfied with what you wish to rent.

What makes this apartment 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 and spectacular 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' sitting outside and swimming in the Gulf of Mexico is a "soul rejuvenating" experience.

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.

An amazing retreat to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment the door opened to the beach was way beyond our expectations! It was perfect in every way. Very restful and relaxing, anything and everything a person could want in a vacation getaway. The beach was beautiful, and it was sea turtle season so each morning we got to see many turtles brought up from their nest by the beach patrol. We saw many beautiful sunsets. Our stay was perfect in every way, we can’t wait to rebook the same apartment again. We would highly recommend this place to anyone!

Delightful Relaxing Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

Exactly as described--clean, convenient and every detail is covered. Choices are abundant--grill out and enjoy a meal by the Gulf or go out and experience one of the great restaurants close by. Walk the beach (steps from your door!) for fabulous shelling or --our favorite--paddle boarding both the Gulf and the Intercoastal waterway. Bikes are available also to tool around town or ride to the State Park less than a mile away! Neal was a gracious host, making sure we were comfortable and informed. We will most certainly be back!

Perfect beach get away! Walk right out the backdoor on to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Small little apartment style 1.5 bed place but perfect size for our family of 4 (boys age 4 & 2)! Includes everything you’d need to enjoy the beach! Clean, well stocked with towels, bedding and all the necessary kitchen essentials! If you’re looking for an easy, family friendly beach house this is it! Dolphins and manatees love to visit this beach house too ;) *great owner always available to answer questions or help where needed!
