Enjoyed our stay. House was well stocked and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

House was very comfortable and in an excellent location. One thing to note--the bed was comfortable but really high which made it difficult for average height "old folks" like us to get into. Overall an excellent rental. Thank you.

"As Always, the Perfect Retreat"

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed here a week each of the last 3 years and we truly love everything about the property and location. The owners go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need to you enjoy your stay. The house is very cozy, has a roomy kitchen and a nicely landscaped backyard with a water view. Equipped with TV's in each room, WiFI, several small appliances and cookware, there's little to pack except you clothes. There is also a storage shed with fishing rods, beach chairs, coolers, bikes and a charcoal grill to enjoy some cooking at home.

The property is very convenient to area attractions, great restaurants and the beaches. This trip, we visited the Ringling Museum (highly recommended) in Sarasota after having brunch at the Blu Island Bistro in Venice. Both are within about 30 minutes. We also made our way to the Edison and Ford Estates in Ft. Myers which was another great tour about an hour away. There is a winery just a couple miles down the road that offers tours and some really cool Eco Tours. We tried Riding the Waves this trip and it was a blast.

If you're into fossil hunting there's no better place than the beaches of Englewood and Venice to find shark's teeth, megalodon teeth, shells and other great finds.

No need to look elsewhere. This property and all it has to offer can't be beat.

Another great stay in this quaint Englewood home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay again in Doane’s home! It was so nice to be familiar with the home’s amenities, location, etc He is a great communicator and very accommodating! The house is in a great location to either Venice Beaches or Englewood, plus near many restaurants and shops. The home is comfortable and well equipped with items you need when you’re on a getaway. Our son loved roasting marshmallows in the fire pit and we enjoy a cozy movie inside eating our yummy local Italian dinner delivered. Thanks so much for an enjoyable stay! This home is an excellent value and ideal choice for adults or families!

Awesome place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a fun time at this property! Everything you could need was there for us and our dogs loved the backyard! The location was awesome for all of the antiquing, snorkeling and eating we wanted to do while in Englewood. I really appreciate all the attention to detail Doane provided that made it a perfect birthday getaway! Thank you!

Quaint nicely refurbished home close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our beach getaway was SO enjoyable! The home has a fresh beach design, clean, well- maintained, and the owners took great care to anticipate guests' needs. The master bed was very comfortable (I've had back surgery so my body requires support- it was perfect)! Kitchen was well-equipped, washer/dryer, the bathrooms had handheld sprayers in the both showers, flat screen TV's with nice sound system, games & videos for all ages, and the fenced in backyard was ideal to bring a pet and enjoy s'mores by the fire pit.

Doane, thank you for an excellent stay in your close by Manasota Beach home!

Another wonderful stay in this home-away-from-home!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying in this lovely house and I'm sure it will not be the last. Doane is amazing and so very thoughtful, making sure everything needed was at our fingertips for a comfortable and fun stay. Thank you for another wonderful vacation in your sweet little home- where family memories were made that will never be forgotten.

Kindest Regards,

Sean and Amie

Beautiful beaches with amazing sunsets, dolphin and manatee sightings. Shells and sharks teeth are plentiful. There are secluded stretches of beach to enjoy. Stump Pass and Blind Pass are two I highly recommend visiting.
