Of course, the star attraction for many is the picture-postcard coast, replete with gently swaying palm trees, powder-soft sands, and dazzling turquoise water. Englewood vacation rentals run the gamut from condos ideal for a couple, to sprawling family houses where you could host a big family get-together.
