About owner/manager

My wife and I bought this house in December 2012 to retire to. That's still a ways away. In the meantime, we travel here a few times each year to enjoy the house and all the natural beauty the area has to offer. We want you to do the same!

owner/manager purchased this House in 2012

Why owner/manager chose Englewood

Manasota Key is a hidden gem and the location of our house is ideal for enjoying nearby shopping, dining and entertainment while relaxing in the shade of our beautiful gnarled oak trees and taking in sunsets every night on your own private beach! We haven't wasted any time in completely updating the house, including new kitchen, flooring, fixtures, windows, doors, AC system, etc. The exterior has been freshly painted and the property professionally landscaped. A tropical paradise!

What makes this House unique

Manasota Key is a haven for wildlife- dolphins, manatees, sea turtles, birds and gopher tortoises. A nature lovers dream!

                                                          Lovely home just steps from a private beach! Very well-maintained house with everything you need for a relaxing time away... This was our first time visiting this area of Florida and it certainly won't be our last! Thank you, Rob, for everything... we didn't want to leave!!!

                                                          Awesome place!!! We loved it!

                                                          Quick getaway was perfect. Thanks!!!

                                                          Awesome house,

                                                          Donna O.

                                                          We loved this house with all the fresh updates! Loved the colors! My grandchildren loved the beach with all the sea life there. We will be returning!

                                                          Desiree V.Aiken, SC

                                                          Most clean and organized home, equipped kitchen for cooking in - several indoor and porch sitting areas, loved the gnarled oak trees and quiet setting! A bit disappointed though thinking we would be able to view the water from the porch- I had envisioned sitting and enjoying my morning coffee- a short walk was needed instead. Most stunning sunsets! Great space for 2 couples or family of 4.

                                                          Due to recent storms sandy beach small in size- a hike of 1 1/2 miles was great for Englewood Beach and State Park- equipped with umbrellas and chairs for rental for a small fee- which we did use x 2.

                                                          Kayaking available at end of island, small shops and local bistro and grill within 2 miles,

                                                          Neighbors friendly and helpful. Owner quick to respond to messages. A big plus!

                                                          Thank you Rob for sharing your Florida home with us. DV Aiken, SC

                                                          A Perfect Home Away From Home

                                                          Scott H.

                                                          If your looking for a comfortable, warm and inviting place to stay - this is it! Our two week experience was nothing less than perfect. Rob is an absolute pleasure to deal with from beginning to end of the whole rental process. You won't find a better host ANYWHERE! The house is very clean, decorated in good taste, and supplied with everything you need. You can tell that the owners take such pride in keeping this house in great condition. The location is excellent - whether you choose to privately chill, take part in the many activities available in the area, or get out and meet the friendly neighbors at the beach for the gorgeous sunsets. Our time spent here was priceless. Thanks Rob for welcoming us to share your lovely home!

                                                          Greater expectations!

                                                          The house and location was amazing! Two couples had plenty of space. The Lanai was perfect for early morning coffee. Kitchen, huge for shared cooking. We never even went out for dinner.

                                                          My husband and I loved the outside shower. And the purple bathroom! I did yoga ever morning

                                                          on Englewood beach with a hundred other Yogi s. With two couples,the twin bedroom discouraged us, but we just moved the beds together to make a King! Thanks Rob for sharing your home with us. Recommend you get a guest book. Might be archaic, but would love to have read others written word. The place was more than we expected.

Enjoy private beach access right from your door or bike to town for dinner and drinks at night. Watch dolphins, manatee and sea turtles every day, or enjoy world-class fishing and kayaking. Cross the street and enjoy the beautiful views across Lemon Bay and an abundance of bird life.
