About Scott & Terri Caulfield

I found myself in Florida in 1971 after my father one day declared he couldn't stomach another Massachusetts winter. After many years I've come to appreciate the wisdom of my father!

Scott & Terri Caulfield purchased this house in 1979

Why Scott & Terri Caulfield chose Englewood

In the late 1950's my parents often traveled from New England to West Palm Beach, occasionally veering across Alligator Alley and up the west coast. Enchanted by the sleepy fishing village of Englewood, they bought an acre on the east side of Lemon Bay and began the dream of a Florida retirement.

What makes this house unique

Our porch overlooks Lemon Bay, an 'aquatic preserve' - the views are beautiful, great sunsets, Manasota Key and the Gulf Beach just across the bay. We enjoy fishing, boating, just hanging out on the dock, playing golf, hitting one of several waterside bars and restaurants - from nautical dives to places that call for something nicer than shorts and flip-flops.

Lemon Bay House

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our stay very much. The sunsets were beautiful, boat activity on the ICW was entertaining and interesting to watch. The fishing from the dock good and we enjoyed the bikes that were provided.

We found the home was well equipped with everything one needs. The WiFi worked very well. It is a great place with lots of peace and tranquillity.

Lemon Bay House - Direct Intracoastal Dockage Near Gulf Beach - Property 76296

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this property for five years and would recommend this property highly!! The property has always been very well-maintained and clean ( a priority for us). The owners are very accommodating and great to deal with in every way. The location, which is very private, cannot be beat - to wake up every day with a view from every level of the house and see dolphins, birds, boats, sunsets, walk a few feet to catch fish off the dock, spend time at Manasota Beach (beautiful) to hunt for shark's teeth and walks on the beach is a dream. Englewood and the surrounding communities like Venice and Boca Grande are wonderful also for culture, beaches, shopping, etc. We enjoyed the Van Wezel Performing Arts Center in Sarasota and many, many restaurants. This house and location was perfect for us and no place we

would rather be!!!!
