Why SCOTT BELDEN chose Englewood
We take great pride in our home. This quaint beach house is within easy walking distance to a Tiki bar on the bay, fine dining and casual restaurants as well as a convenience store and other shopping and boardwalk. We have simply tried to think of everything you would want, or need, to make your vacation a very special experience. We are literally 150 feet from one of the most beautiful beaches that Florida has to offer, as well as being only 600 feet from Lemon Bay. Bring your boat, use one of the nearby ramps, rent a dock or moor on the bay. You will have direct access to the Gulf of Mexico within minutes. This is a renowned fished and boating area. You can surf cast off the beach from anywhere on the island, or charter boats for tarpon, flounder, grouper, mackerel or redfish.It doesn't get any better than this! This home is the perfect getaway from the bustle and noise of everyday life, or to enjoy the glamour and excitement of Florida's Gulf Coast. The choice is yours:Spend a day at the beach, just doing...nothingExplore protected wildlife areas and bird sanctuariesVisit Stump Pass State Park or Dine at one of the local restaurants. This home is only minutes (0.4 miles) from some of the finest dining and nightlife in Florida. The area also has plenty of opportunities for shopping, golf, boating, fishing and much more.

Slice of paradise
I would recommend this get away to anyone, it’s literally the perfect relaxation destination. My family and I rented both the large 3b/1b and the attached 1b/1b. Although, we could have gotten away with just the larger rental it’s very spacious and it has a billiard table. Both the large and small were worth the money, each has its own style and feel. Our dog was able to run around outside in the fenced in area. The landscape was beautiful we spent a lot of time on site tanning and just hanging out grilling on their complimentary grill. It was easy to get around the key. We rode the complimentary bikes everywhere and we also rode stumpys free golf cart rides to the restaurants and the public beaches. The private beach was just steps from our front door. There’s lots of beautiful scenery, we walked the nature trail less than a mile down, we kayaked, had on site massages and ate the most delicious stone crabs also from less than a mile down the road. If beauty, adventure and relaxation is what your searching for this is the place.
Nice place and people.
Very nice place . Very quiet and private. Wonderful vacation for relaxing!!
I had a wonderful experience renting this house, the beach is so close to the house and the property was just as it is described on the website. I will definitely be back.
Beautiful home and beach
This place is beautiful. We found tons of shark teeth! The owners are very nice and also available to help with any questions you have. We enjoyed our stay very much. The only problem was... We disnt get to stay long enough! We will be going back soon! And staying longer!!
Owner's son manages, "Cleans" cottage called 45 mins before 3pm check in. He said the unit was not ready but should be by 3pm. We arrived with bags of groceries 20 mins after check in, still not cleaned. When I opened the freezer and refrigerator to put away MY groceries, they had not been emptied of previous guest's food and of course not clean. When I told him he missed the fridge, he said "You can keep the food." I told him didn't want it and to take it or throw it out. I want to put my fresh food in there. He again urged me to keep the food stating "I was hoping to be out on the water by now." He walked back to the bedroom to clean and did not clean it or the stove which had burnt food stuck on it and food smeared on countertop. I pulled out the leftover food and cleaned the kitchen. The guest renting the other unit said "Those people left early this morning, I guess he was up too late partying with us last night." The rest of unit was clean. About an hour after check in he left and we began unpacking. Owner advised call his son with any problems but he was the problem.
A great mini-vacation
Our 3 nights stay was most comfortable here with friendly neighbors. The house was very clean with a kitchen that was fully equipped. Communication with the owner was A+! We were steps away from the beach. Location, location, location: the best!
