Property description

These beautifully appointed Cottages, Mango Cottage and Guava Cottage, located in the artists' district of Olde Englewood, are 2 minutes' drive from the famous conservation area of Dearborn Street. There are many things to do in the area for recreation and relaxation including boating, fishing, golf, shopping, live music and great restaurants. Sarasota is 45 minutes away, Orlando, 3 hours away and Fort Myers, 1 hour away.

In Olde Englewood, there are several excellent restaurants, many having live music: Mango Bistro, Zeke's Uptown Bar and Grill, Englewoods on Dearborn, Vino Loco, Compadres Mexican Restaurant, La Stanza Italian Restaurant, Bobarino's Pizzeria and the Ole Time Cafe, which is great for breakfast. In addition, there is Snook's Bayside Bar & Grill at Royal Palm Marina. All of these restaurants offer great food and atmosphere.

The Cottages have everything you will need for an enjoyable and comfortable stay. There is a beautiful large, fenced yard with many plants and trees which is secluded for relaxing and barbecuing on your private decks. The decks are accessed directly from the Cottages so you can go outside to enjoy the incredible Florida mornings, sitting drinking a cup of coffee and reading the morning paper. And in the evenings, you can enjoy sitting by the fire pit which is located in an additional seating area in the center of the yard.

The kitchens are fully fitted with a stove, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, pots & pans and dishes, glasses, cups,silverware and cooking utensils and the dining areas each have a 42-inch round table with four chairs and comfy seat covers.

The spacious bedrooms each have a queen-sized bed, night stands, chest of drawers, built-in closet and en-suite bathrooms which are bright and cheery and have a nice strong shower.

The cozy living rooms with leather Lay-Z-Boy recliners, a Samsung 32-inch LED HD television with satellite and an iPod docking station completes your relaxing experience in beautiful Olde Englewood. WiFi is included.

If you want to bring your boat, you can either negotiate to moor it at Royal Palm Marina which is a block away, or you can park it at the Cottages and launch it, when you want to go out, into Lemon Bay from Indian Mound Park which is a 5-minute drive away.

Englewood Beach on Manasota Key is 10 minutes' drive away and here you will find several excellent restaurants for lunch or dinner, most of which also provide live music. Some of these are Lock and Key, Flounders, the White Elephant, The Gulfview Grill, and the Beach Road Wine Bar and Bistro.

Other nearby restaurants that offer dining on the water are The Fishery, Farlow's, Sharkey's of Venice and Casey Key Fish House.
