Very nice! And close to the beach!
Loved your stay
Very peaceful quiet getaway, just what we were looking for. Loved the house and layout, very bright and cheery. Everything we needed was there. Only negatives were chair cushions could be replaced and pool needs remarcited, tore up the bottom of my feet. Hope to visit again. Johnny and Suzanne
Lovely Spacious property, providing privacy and an ideal base to explore the area
We decided on a “coastal” visit to Florida (from the UK) this time, as an alternative to the hustle and bustle of Orlando and the theme parks. Initially we were concerned that the photos suggested the villa was bit secluded and “off the beaten track”. However, the house is lovely and spacious, provides privacy with neighbouring properties well spaced-out and would sleep 8 comfortably (there were 4 of us) with a nice pool and seating area outside along with all the comforts of home (TV, Wifi) including a decent kitchen and several different areas to sit and eat. We usually self-cater and were able to do so comfortably using the relevant shops in Venice rather than Englewood. The surrounding area is quiet and the locals are very friendly, although the sight of the Englishman puffing his way around a morning run in the heat and humidity bemused a few of them, The beach is walkable, but we found the walk across the bridge a little unnerving and drove most of the time. Watching the sunset, in the evening, on Manasota Key beach is beautiful and the other beaches are within easy reach (Red Tide permitting). We were also able to visit some of the attractions in Sarasota and Fort Myers, which were easily drivable. Lesley was really helpful with regard to questions and logistics relating to the villa to make our stay stress-free. Our only minor criticism would be that when the house is in constant use/rental, the tidying and cleaning could perhaps be a bit more thorough. We would have no hesitation in recommending the area and this property and we’d certainly like to visit again in the future
Big secluded house
The house slept all 8 of us perfectly. The large dining room table sits 8 and the bar in the kitchen + the eat in nook sat 8 for more casual meals. The kitchen is well stocked with majority of the supplies you need to cook and the fridge is large for a weeks worth of groceries. The pool is nice and very private. The spa isn’t heated but has jets for massage or bubbles. There are rafts and noodles to use. The garage is large and the bikes are available but the road is dirt so easier to ride a few blocks away. We saw lots of wildlife when out and about on the dirt roads. Manasota Beach is close but easier to drive than walk. Bring your own beach towels and soaps.
Our whole family enjoyed staying in this home. Thank you!!
We had an amazing time in this beautiful villa Lesley the property manager was a diamond the area was amazing apart from the gnat bites lol the fridge and cupboards had food in condiments etc there had even been shower gel etc left behind so we did the same for the next arrivals, on driving up to the villa we were a bit concerned as it was almost off the beaten track but over whelmed when we pulled on the drive.
this is not a moan at all but to make your cleaners or property owners aware:)
just a few areas to be tidied up around windows and in corners, master bed has issues underneath and you need to replace the sunbed cushions and some others as they are rather musty from getting wet and drying but nothing major at all.
would definitely contact Lesley first for our next visit, thank you we had a fabulous stay in the Englewood Villa
Fabulous house and awesome pool!
This house was just right for our family of five and two friends! The beds were comfortable. The kitchen had everything you needed to cook for a large group. It is secluded and very private. The decor was very nice and comfortable. The only bad part was the red tide at the beach. The dead fish and other marine life just laying around caused a big stink (literally) and made the only reason to come to this area for seashell hunting, fishing, playing in the surf, and eating locally sourced seafood impossible. It was dissappointing, but the house made up for it in the long run.
