First, a big "thank you" to Randy and Barbara for offering this lovely home to lucky folks like us. Englewood is a small town of friendly people relaxing and living in an easy manner. Lots of eateries close by (we walked to most), Lemon Bay and fishing piers very close or you can choose to stay home in the awesome pool, or under the tiki porch or bask in the sun on the deck. We did all :-) The home is nicely furnished with comfy beds and bedding, 2 bathrooms and a great open floorplan. We made use of the dining table for a gathering of 6 and it was great. Small screened in lanai off the dining area was used a lot and we could see sunsets from there too. Nice that the driveway is large enough to hold multiple vehicles. You'll arrive to water fountains greeting you at the entry, a nice welcome packet and full instructions and local information. Doesn't get better than this. Thanks again for a great way to start 2019.
The property was even better than expected for the 4 of us. We all enjoyed sitting on the shady balcony for sunrise and throughout the day to read and watch pelicans. We also loved that it was quiet but that we could easily walk to many restaurants. We walked daily on the shady beachside path as well as on the beach. It was very nice that beach chairs, towels and umbrella were available and we made good use of them. The only surprise we had based on previous Airbnb/VRBO experiences that other visitors should be aware of is there was very limited “consumables” including no shampoo Kleenex or cooking oil-and we had to buy more toilet paper, pepper and hand soap. We were easily able to buy those things but would have probably brought some things from home had we known.
