About Amy

Our fondest memories from childhood are of spending time with devoted grandparents & cousins on sun-filled, fun-filled Florida beach vacations. Ironically, my husband & I first met each other on a Florida vacation after college to visit relatives. Needless to say Florida vacations are close to my heart and I fortunately was able to turn them into a small business I'm absolutely passionate about. My husband spent his boyhood vacation visiting Manasota Key's stunning beaches. His fun beach memories prompted our years-long search for the perfect place to call our own on beloved Manasota Key.

Why Amy chose Englewood

Location, location, LOCATION! Villa Margarita delights guests with all new furnishings throughout done by our very talented interior designer & numerous FREE amenities- Just steps to our Gorgeous Gulf of Mexico Beach!! We are extremely lucky to have one of the best locations on Manasota Key! My husband and I searched forever for the perfect spot on the keys & we found it. It was worth the wait. Just steps to both our gorgeous beach which never gets crowded & one of the best places of earth to find the pre-historic sharks teeth the area is famous for! (our kids have collected tons of sharks teeth - which make the ultimate free souvenirs!!)

1 minute walk the opposite way to picturesque Lemon Bay on either end of our tiny, pretty island street. We are also beyond fortunate to be in the same neighborhood as the highest ranked local attraction - the nature wonderland of Stump Pass State Beach Park. Stump Pass offers acres of secluded shoreline & hiking trails plus fantastic fishing on the end. (it is just a quick 5 minute stroll to our left - or your can enjoy free use our kayaks or canoe to explore Stump Pass shoreline & tranquil Lemon Bay. We also love that we can walk just 8 minutes down our beach to the right to get to the popular free yoga classes on the beach, playground, basketball courts, souvenir shop, numerous watersports rentals (jet skis, SUPs, parasailing, boats, tours, etc), & to the Key's 3 most popular restaurants with live tropical music & delicious seafood on their patios. A family-favorite, Flounder's has fun beach games in the sand to entertain kids of all ages (even teens!) while parents dine & listen to live music is close view of the kids.

What makes this house unique

Villa Margarita is our closest cottage to our awesome beach! We fell in love with the perfect location of blue starfish & the relaxed island charm of these adorable beach cottages. Our talented interior designer worked her magic on each blue starfish beach cottage adding all new coastal furnishings & modern conveniences while preserving the nostalgic cottage vibe of yesteryear.

* * Attractive brand new heated, courtyard swimming pool with massage therapy jets & glass-tiled waterfall in common patio area - enjoy! Granite counters, new stainless steel appliances, new cabinets & well equipped kitchen make preparing casual meals a snap. Or enjoy lots of walkable dining options if you don't like to cook. Some of our guests like to catch their dinner in the Bay or Stump Pass, then use our 4 grills to enjoy alfresco patio dining out back.

If you love dolphins like our family does, this is your place We see them frequently jumping in our waves & even coming up right next to the kayaks - an amazing experience. Also plentiful are the pre-historic shark's teeth the area is famous for. Our beach is one of the best places to find these thousands-of-years old gems which make fantastic souvenirs. Our kids love to hunt for them & so do we - it is quite addicting! We treat our guests like family & offer exceptional value with loads of free amenities from all premium channels included free on our new Samsung flatscreen TVs to an extensive array of popular beach gear. We are proud to say many of our guests are repeats - returning annually 'to their blue starfish home by the shore' for another dose of island charm. Enjoy!

Another wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time coming back to Amy’s Villa and we couldn’t be happier. The location is across the street from one of the most beautiful beaches in Florida. You can get up make a cup of coffee and take a minute walk to the sand. We also got to meet Amy this time and she is WONDERFUL!!! I am so glad we found this place and each year our family makes incredible memories at her villas! Thank you Amy!

An amazing get away!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at Villa Margarita. Last year I came with my family (husband, 14 and 18 year old sons) and had a blast. This year I came with a friend, her 4 year old son and ten year old daughter. We had a blast! Amy and her wonderful team think of everything from a bottle of wine waiting for you upon arrival, to beach towels, beach toys, beach chairs and umbrellas, and kayaks. You literally could just bring your clothes and be set for a week of endless activity (or endless just lying on the beach). The kitchen is fully stocked and even had some pantry staples. The cottage is clean, tidy, wonderfully air conditioned (with separate controls for both the bedrooms and living area) and has been nicely upgraded since our stay last summer. As a mom, the coolest thing was the addition of an expandable wall mounted towel rack on the screen porch on which to hang wet towels and suits at day's end. No more wet stuff hanging everywhere!

We kayaked, boogie boarded, collected a museum's worth of sharks' teeth, and shelled like crazy. The amount of wildlife we saw was amazing. Dolphins every day, in the bay and off shore, pelicans diving for fish 20 feet away from us as we swam, fish galore, shore birds, and even an octopus (which we just didn't expect!). The pool in the common area is perfect for relaxing and just the right size for a little one to swim in. Stump Pass park is just a walk down the beach and well worth the effort. The "shell trees" are fun for the kids. And best of all, the beach is not crowded. At all. Seriously. It was like having a private beach some days! The temps were great. Hot, but with a breeze off the water, and the water temp was wonderful.

The year round residents on Sand Dollar Lane are friendly and ready to tell you where to eat for some really great meals. Grocery stores and restaurants are just a quick trip into Englewood (some good spots on the island as well).

It really is a relaxing spot to vacation. Don't let the size of the cottage deter you. It is well laid out and well appointed. Plenty of room in a manageable space. And quite frankly, with so much to do and see, you will barley be inside anyway! The vibe of the area is completely laid back. No make up or stuffy clothing required.

Honestly, I could go on and on about how much we enjoyed our stay, how much we love the area, and how great Amy is to work with. We plan on going back, both as a family, and with friends.

You get what you paid for, pictures are overly flattering, management very responsive

  • 3 of 5

This property is a refurbished cottage that the owners tried to really spruce up and turn into a "resort". It is NOT a resort. It's several little, tiny houses they patched up and put a hot tub in the center and put up a resort sign. It looks a little like someone tried their best to design something fancy, but didn't spend the money to do it correctly. The showerhead in the tiny shower in the tiny bathroom was well below my chin (and I'm 5.5). The kitchen looks nice in photos, but there are issues....cheap furnishings, cheap dishware and there is no room to cook. I though the coffee pot might catch on fire the plate was so peeling and dirty.

The location is very good, close to bay and beach. The highlight was watching the baby turtles hatch on the beach. The water and sand were amazing. There's really a lot to do on the island although it looks sleepy. Don't miss the Sand Bar restaurant, awesome food, sand to play in, corn hole and live music. Great for kids and adults! The island also has a nature preserve / park with trails and wild animals in walking distance of the house.

Management was very eager to please us when I contacted them about our disappointments at "check in" - which is just when you show up and let yourself in. The Home Away app they ask you to use is also annoying. They sent someone immediately to fix a bad smell. But, towels are cheap and they expect you to wash them before you leave. Laundry was so far from my "cottage" that I would not have been able to leave my kids alone when I went to the laundry room. But, high efficiency washers with huge capacity. The place has comfortable sleeping spots for 6 - real mattresses, although the king in #1 was mushy! My kids were all happy in the second bedroom with their beds. TV's were great in master bedroom and living area. However, our WIFI never did work properly. The management even came to fix it, but to no avail, we couldn't get it figured out to work more than a few hours at a time. My husband went to a nearby McDonald's and did his work there, easy fix, but frustrating.

The kayak and canoe were great, useful. My kids saw a jellyfish! Ping pong table was great. However, anytime we went outside someone was smoking, the people next to us, by the pool, at the ping pong table, across the street, at the beach. What is it with this town and the smoking? It's a pretty place, but I think if you're looking for a high-class resort, pay more money and go somewhere else.

Owner's Response: Hi Jill, glad you enjoyed the charm of manasota key. I'm sorry that you feel that this beach villa did not live up to your very highest expectations. - Brand new beachy kitchen table set, 2 new upper kitchen cabinets & above range microwave just added providing more kitchen storage & counter space. New modern glass shower door. - Our team did a very thorough, full investigation of all issues mentioned. Our wonderful head housekeeper Elena showed your husband that your Wi-Fi connection was actually being turned off by your kids. (Comcast investigated too) - Elena repeatedly asked your family if there was anything else needed & none of these items were mentioned to her or to me unfortunately so we could easily resolve them for the comfort of your stay. Since hearing about them, a brand new coffee maker, highest quality new towels and dinnerware sets have been added - even though previous guests have been happy with amenities provided. -The king mattress set was already top quality, new, and found to be very comfortable by many happy repeat guests. -We offer family friendly beach villas and beach cottages. We are not a world class resort and are happy that we have low-key unique island Charm at affordable prices for families. You only paid $140 per night + tax/cleaning. That is excellent value. World class resorts frequently charge more than $500 per night + taxes/fees. We provided numerous freebies: – all premium movie channels included free, free laundry facilities only 3 minute walk away, free outdoor ping-pong, free new swim spa in common area with beautiful waterfall and relaxing massage therapy jets. Free parking. Free Wi-Fi. Free beach gear – including 4 folding beach chairs, beach towels, Sand toy set, boogie boards. 4 Outdoor showers, 4 grills in common areas. - 2 bedroom/1 bathroom/ private small lanai. Well equipped kitchen. - we are definitely Non-smoking inside and outside on our grounds. If any guest sees a violation of this policy please anonymously report it immediately & it will be quickly resolved! Housekeepers are there daily and will be extra vigilant about this policy. It is entirely optional for guest to start a load of towels before they leave if they have time to help keep cleaning fee down for guests in future. Homeaway free hospitality suite app is loved by many. Again it's free & optional. -Rest assured all feedback is closely looked into by our great team who work very hard so guests can relax & enjoy their stay.Amy
