About Linda Philips

Our family saved for years and decided to invest in a second home rather than building a bigger home and knew we wanted to be in Sarasota. We looked at more than 25 homes before we fell in love with our choice. We began the process of building a place for our family to vacation, build memories and gather for years to come. There has not been a day to go by that we arent happy and grateful for our decision.

Linda Philips purchased this house in 2005

Why Linda Philips chose Florida South West

We had been coming to the area for more than 15 years and wanted to be near the water since we love to boat. We never thought we could be this close to great beaches and on the water in our price range but we struck gold. This is a piece of the calmer side of Florida with the accessibility to the more rambunctious areas in a short drive.

What makes this house unique

A quiet family environment close to everything and turn key ready for fun and sun.

Fantastic Home with all you would ever need

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Englewood Florida as a family for last 20 years.

We have usually rented condos but this year we decided to rent a house and are so glad we did.

House was in great, private location and was in fantastic condition.

We will be back soon

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The house is very nicely decorated and very comfortable. The lanai and pool area were our favorite. There were plenty of bikes and toys in the garage. The location was close to everything and we could even ride our bikes to the beach or to town. The house is laid out nicely so that everyone has privacy but there are good gathering spaces. We hope to come back every year.

Very nice home in a quiet neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the home very much!! It is a very nice and quiet neughborhood, we really enjoyed the pool and hot tub. The view from the pool was great with a canal just a couple of hundred feet away, we took the kayak out and enjoyed a morning paddle up and down the canal. Just ten minutes away from a nice beach and less then five from Boca Royal golf course. Would recommend this house very much. If u like ice cream there is a place about 4 miles down the road called A Better Scoop, best ice cream ever!!! And I like my ice cream!!!!

Fun in the Sun

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every minute of our stay in this beautiful place! The house accommodations were wonderful. The house was clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated! It was awesome to be able to go to the beach or explore Englewood and the surrounding areas during the day and come back for a relaxing swim in the pool in the evening!

A Great Home away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed at this home several times and have consistently enjoyed a quiet and relaxing stay. It is our favorite place to escape to! The home is located in a friendly, gated community and is comfortably decorated, and well-equipped. The owners provide bicycles, beach chairs, and even a kayak to enjoy. The beaches are beautiful (don't miss the sunsets!), and there are many restaurants and great shopping nearby. There are also several parks close by with hiking and biking trails, or you can relax on the lanai by the very inviting pool and hot tub, and experience the local wildlife. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us!

Beautiful Spacious Vacation Home in Wonderful Gated Community

  • 5 of 5

Amazingly comfortable home. Great view of sunsets, and sand hill crane dances, in a fabulous lanai with pool and hot tub overlooking the canal. Home is nicely furnished. Has many amenities including Kayak and Bikes for all to use. Friendly neighborhood, gated community. Beautiful landscaping, lots of wildlife including bald eagles, sand hill cranes, bunnies, owls and more. A great place for an extended stay. Two weeks is definately not enough!! Thank you for a wonderful vacation!!
