LUXURY HOME WITH POOL/SPA ON A SECLUDED TROPICAL, TWO ACRE SITE.

Englewood House Rental Photos and Description

Three Bedrooms & Sofa bed, three bathrooms, sleeps up to 8.

Enjoy the tranquil setting of this preferred North Englewood location. Natural vegetation surrounds the lush landscaping and mature trees on two acres. This custom built 3 BR/3 Bath home has numerous upgrades, including a luxury kitchen with glass cooktop, convection oven and microwave, dishwasher, breakfast bar, and a large eat-in area overlooking the pool. Three sets of pocket sliders open up the whole house to the screened pool area with large heated pool and spa/hot-tub surrounded by tropical plantings and red terracotta tiled patios with lots of extra space for sunning and entertaining. The master suite has a walk-in closet, a full bathroom with walk-in shower and an extra vanity. The Florida room and the kitchen have soaring vaulted ceilings with high celestory windows, and you will find a double sided gas fireplace that divides the living room from the Florida room. The dining room will seat eight . Two other bedrooms, one with queen bed and the other with two single beds.

Secluded Luxury. Set in 2 acres of woods.: This is the most peaceful place, and yet you are a few minutes drive to shops in Venice or in Englewood, and fine beaches, restaurants and golf are all close by. Catch up on your favorite movies, there are TV's with DVD & VCR's in the Florida room, Master bedroom and one other bedroom. Try the Karaoke Machine, perfect your pool or billiards skills. You can do it all or nothing at all in this tropical paradise. It is just like staying in your very own resort. We have equipped the house as our own. Pool and landscape service are all included.

Golf:: Whether you're an expert or a beginner, Florida is a golfer's dream and draws more golfers than any other state. The Charlotte County area alone offers 21 golf courses and many more within an hour's drive.

The courses range from public to semi-private to exclusive private country clubs. Golfers have ample courses where they can experience typical Florida play. Naturally, the most common elements on Florida courses are water and sand. Challenging elements include the island green and prevailing coastal winds. But take heart, deep rough is uncommon

Why here?: Our guests love this house for its seclusion. They find all up to date conveniences in a woodland setting. You cannot see the house from the road. Your approach on a 'hidden driveway'. Others like it because the beds are so comfortable. Others because of the caged and heated pool surrounded by tropical plantings. Guests mention our art. Mostly by local artists. Our favorites are by Margaret and Gary Albritain who have a gallery in Placida, a short drive away.

Guestbook comments from the owner
This is our dream house. Cheri and I took possession last Easter, and have just stayed at the house for a few all too short weeks. This is a beautiful house in a tranqil, tropical location. It is fully appointed with everything we and you will need for a relaxing, get away from it all vacation. It is surrounded by pine woods, and lush landscaping, and is set back 200 feet from the road that winds beside Lemon Bay. You will be close to everything, but in a world of your own.

Alec is a retired travel executive who was responsible for the contaacting and operation of charter flights to the Caribbean and Mexico.

Peace and quiet. This is a property on one of thoise hidden driveways. You cannot see the house from the road. as it is set back about 250 feet from the road and the same distance from the lot behind the house.

Furnished as our 2nd home. It will be our full time home when my wife Cheri retires from her job as a school nurse in Glenview, on the N side of Chicago. You will find good furniture, nice local art work., a complete kitchen and more.

RELAXING VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
If peacefulness and nature is what you are craving, this is the place. It is very quiet and private and had all of the amenities that one needs to have a completely fabulous vacation. It is very spacious and we found the pool an added bonus. We would certainly love to return to this home away from home again. Thank you so much, Alec, for making this a very special vacation!

My husband and I wanted to take my elderly parents to Englewood to visit my brother. My Dad uses a walker and I could not find a home that could accommodate his needs in the shower. Alec not only assured me that Dad's walker would be able to get around, he also installed grab bars and a spray shower wand so I could take care of my Dad. This beautiful home was everything as described and more. It has an open concept (the pictures don't really show that) and would be great for elderly as well as small children. There are no steps going in and a small step down going out to the pool area. The furniture and beds were comfortable, plenty of towels, full service kitchen, lots of dishes, washer and dryer, bikes (just had to pump up the tires), beach towels, beach chairs, cooler, on and on... This home is located in a very clean, safe neighborhood that is secluded yet close to anything you need. Thank you to Alex and his family for sharing their beautiful home with our family. God Bless!

SIMPLY WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5
This home is beautiful. Secluded with a wonderful pool and hot tub, just as pictured. The nice thing, it is REALLY someone's home, not just a sterile rental. The art and personal touches are special. And all the amenities available at the home are great. Really found everything needed for a perfect stay. Area beaches are very nice and even found a nice pier to do some fishing. Owner responds instantly and caretakers couldn't be nicer or more helpful (pool heater breaker faulty and replaced immediately). Really, this is a home a could return to again and again and highly recommend it. Ralph Batman

GREAT HOUSE!!

  • 5 of 5
We were ready to call the owner and make an offer and never leave! Upon arriving my sister and her family found water coming out of the garage and the water heater. They contacted the owner and by the time we all arrived later in the afternoon from our wedding brunch the hot water heater had been replaced! The immediate response was impressive. We had a slight issue with following the instructions for the pool/hot tub and that was the only downside. The house is great, the beds are extremely comfortable. The location is very secluded and lush. The kitchen is large with everything you could need, right down to the beer koozies. We left one from our wedding to add to the collection. Would definitely recommend this property!

Owner's Response: What could have been a disaster turned out fine as my local handyman was able to replace the water heater right away. Yes the pool/spa controls are hard to understand. On future rentals I will have my pool person come by to demonstrate how to work the pool and spa controls.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED FOR A GREAT VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
Alec and his crew went the extra mile to make sure we had everything we needed, and boy did we! The spacious and comfortable house includes internet, cable, washer/dryer, great air conditioning, a pool table and a fantastic swimming pool. The location is also great because there are a variety of beaches within driving distance. From Englewood, where we found shark teeth and shells, up the coast to the Siesta Key beach which is like powdered sugar, there are a number of beaches all with their own character. There are big chain stores close by but even better there are the small historic downtowns like Venice to enjoy. Our family of four spread out and felt like royalty in this home, but there is plenty of room for a very large family as well. It was a fantastic experience and we hope to come again!
