About the property

Comfortable 2 bedroom, 1 bath home tastefully decorated in Florida style

Looking for a great place to take a summer family vacation? This is it!! We are only minutes to the beach and have a two person kayak as well as a dingy for your use in the canals. Book now and receive a 15% discount on top of our low summer rates.

Englewood is a great place to stay, with 3 beautiful beaches and an hours ride to Busch Gardens or Disney, we have the best of both worlds.

This is a clean, well maintained home on a Canal with access to the Gulf of Mexico. There are two bedrooms with Queen Beds and 1 Bathroom with a Roman Shower for easy access. There is a living area as well as a family room so there is space for everyone. Two queen sleeper sofas provides sleeping accommodations for additional guests. Three TV's and WI-FI gives everyone their choice.

The yard is nicely landscaped with a tropical feel and a brand new dock makes outside pleasurable. We have created our own little 'beach area' nestled under palms by the seawall for you to relax with a book, or sit on the bench and fish. There is a covered patio in the back yard for casual outdoor barbecues.

The home is in a quiet neighborhood where all streets dead end into the main canal. Great area for walking and biking with not a lot of thru traffic. A two-man Kayak is available as well to explore the canals and view all of the wildlife.

The house is well appointed with pots, pans, blender, coffee pot, etc. for all your cooking needs. Ample towels and new linens. Everything is fresh & clean!

Some of our finest restaurants as well as shopping are under five minutes away as well as three of the most beautiful beaches you have ever visited. Visit our local farm market on Dearborne Ave and shop the local hand crafted stores and antique shops. They have live music and local vendors on the weekends and a variety of events. There are many local churches of all denominations in the area, a local sports park with a pool, walking trails, basketball and skateboarding.

Englewood is truly a beautiful area, not too busy, but with all the amenities and services necessary to make your vacation special. The Gulf water is pristine, the shelling great and the fishing is superb! If you are a night-owl, we have some great bars & restaurants that host local entertainment so make sure you pack your dancing shoes.

Once you come, you will come back!

About Joanne L. Bray

My husband, David & I have been married for 25 years and have 2 beautiful children who we raised here in Englewood. We are originally from Connecticut and lived in Pawley's Island, SC for 13 years before relocating permanently in 2004. We purchased our vacation home in 2000 on vacation and knew that we wanted to live here. We kept our vacation home for family and friends to come and enjoy this beautiful area.

Joanne L. Bray purchased this house in 2000

Why Joanne L. Bray chose Englewood

We bought our vacation home on our last day of our visit in Englewood. We had looked at properties from Anna Maria Island to Naples and Englewood had the best of all worlds. The house was a perfect size for vacation, centrally located to shopping and beaches and not an overly congested area. The neighborhood is quiet, well kept and having access to the Gulf of Mexico by boat was just what we were looking for. A 15-20 minute boat ride down the canal puts you into Lemon Bay and out Stump Pass to the Gulf. Fishing, swimming, all water related sports have always part of our family's lifestyle.

Great location.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying here. The house is in a quiet neighborhood close to shopping and eating areas. There is plenty of room and the covered patio is an ideal place to relax and watch the canal. There are many things to do and see in this area of Florida.

Nice and Quiet

  • 4 of 5

This place is awesome. It was a quiet, clean, and relaxing place. The house was well decorated. The canal in the back was relaxing with new patio furniture. Thank you so much for the stay. The owners was very helpful with everything.
