About the property

Our spacious, comfortable, carpeted condo is just steps away from the heated swimming pool at the friendly Palm Manor complex in Englewood. Situated on the Gulf of Mexico between Sarasota and Fort Myers this location is fantastic for the Florida lifestyle.
Less than 5 minutes away from our condo is Englewood Beach on Manasota Key (a barrier island just off the mainland) where you can enjoy swimming, snorkelling, fishing, searching for shells and sharks teeth, or simply 'relaxing' on the warm, white sand by the turquoise sea. You are spoiled for choice with several other stunning beaches all within a short distance.
Palm Manor offers many activities on site, such as swimming in the heated pool, tennis, shuffleboard, and in the clubhouse - ping pong and pool. There is also a well-sited BBQ/picnic area which is very popular with guests.
Just across the street is Merchants Crossing and next door is Palm Plaza. These shopping centers will cover all your 'wants and needs' being home to Publix, Winn Dixie, Bealls, Bank of America, as well as many other shops, restaurants and banks.
Nearby is 'olde' Englewood on Dearborn Street. With its many charming buildings in the 'Florida' style and its quaint cafes and artisan shops it is well worth a visit.
If fishing is your game there are lots of choices within the Englewood area. Apart from the Gulf beaches, there is Lemon Bay, the pier by the beach, or if deep-sea fishing appeals there are lots of boat-hire opportunities.
For the golfer Englewood has lots of golf courses to choose from in all price ranges.
If you are a 'nature lover'/bird spotter you are spoiled for choice with lots of nature trails in the area just waiting to be explored.
Englewood has it all.

Everything they said
The condo was everything they said in the advertisement.
It was bright and cheery and had everything you need.
The location is great, close to three beaches, shopping and restaurants.
Thirty minutes or less to other towns and cities for more shopping and beaches.
The pool area was always clean and the people were friendly.
Likely would consider coming back next year.
Great Condo in a Fun Complex
My husband and I spent February 2015 in this condo and enjoyed every day of our stay. The condo is very nicely furnished and tastefully decorated; the area hit a record low temperature during our stay so we know the heat as well as the ac work well! Everything was clean, bright and cheery. The kitchen has everything you need and we did cook most of our meals there. The complex is mostly retired folks in the winter and there are activities almost every day. Everyone is friendly and helpful. The location is great as everything is close by including groceries, department stores, fast food, slow food and the beach. Overall, it was a great experience. We highly recommend this rental.
This is such a nice place to stay! Furnished with anything and everything you need! Very comfy and clean. Feel very safe here not to mentions all the conveniences of stores and restaurants in walking distance. The pool along with the other tenants is a great place to enjoy your days! That is if you're not down at the beaches looking for sharks teeth and shells!! You won't find a better place, home away from home:~)

Thoroughly impressed with this unit upon our arrival. The place was clean beyond compare. Nice location to stores, restaurants and the water. Would definitely recommend this place. This is a very friendly place. Enjoyed conversations with other guests at pool side.
This condo was possibly the cleanest and best equipped unit that we have seen. Anything you could ever need was there, including cooking and dining equipment as well as linens and beach supplies. And it was so clean! We normally wipe down baths and kitchen, and load dishwasher before using, but did not even consider it here. Loved that we could walk to shops and restaurants. Staff was very friendly and helpful, and house cleaner was obviously excellent. We would definitely return to this property if we had not purchased a villa in Englewood. We love this little city for its laid back and friendly small town feel. And there is plenty to do nearby. Condo is nicer than pictures show! We will for sure recommend this property to friends and family.
Renting this condo was an excellent choice for us for March 2013. The listing description was accurate and the condo was well equipped with everything we could want. The condo is well-maintained and was immaculately clean when we arrived. Both the owners and their housekeeper were very helpful and responsive to a couple of concerns that arose while we were there. We loved the location, close to stores we needed that we could walk to, but also only a matter of minutes from the beaches. Also, close enough to Sarasota, Ft. Myers, the Everglades, etc. for day trips. We would highly recommend this property.
Within easy reach: A 20 minute drive north will take you to 'Italian' Venice with its wonderful boutique shops, restaurants, theater, jetty and marina. Approximately 30 minutes or so drive south will take you to Boca Grande a beautiful, small island linked to the mainland by a toll bridge. This is well worth a visit with its stunning setting and beaches. It hosts the words richest Tarpon fishing event each year. Carry on slightly further south and you will discover Port Charlotte with its large shopping malls, cinemas and restaurants. Further afield: Disneyworld in Orlando; Naples and the Everglades; Tampa; Sarasota and Fort Myers are great for trips.
