'Turnkey' and enjoy! The get-away you have been searching for! RELAXATION!

Hidden paridise!: This is an area in Florida that is away from it all. You are close to beaches and restaurants, but away from the hustle and bustle of Florida, and the traffic. This is a very tranquil setting, and a wonderful place to rest and relax. I had only been to Florida a few times, but when I first visited this area, I fell in love with it, and ended up buying...me the non-Florida person. The weather is fantastic with the breeze from the water, the people are very friendly and the quiet location is a welcome retreat. A perfect place to 'recharge' your batteries! Everything is so close, it makes it easy to get around. The beaches are fantastic and the boat activity from the lanai is really interesting to watch. If you are interested...give me a call, or email. I will gladly answer any questions. Everything is there, awaiting your arrival. Just pack, and 'turn the key' to your next vacation. I will have the condo ready and waiting. Also close to Sarasota, Venice, Boca Grande and Punta Gorda.

Things To Do!: Get up and have breakfast in the morning sun on the lanai, grab your favorite book and sit in the sun, or shade on the lanai and read, go for a swim in the pool or use the hot tub, change and take a boat ride from the pool to Rum Bay Restaurant, have lunch, take a short walk to the beach for the afternoon sun, or to collect shells and sand dollars, take the boat back to the condo, have drinks and appetizers on the lanai, watching the sunset and harbor activity, or grill your dinner outside, or have dinner at Johnny Leverocks, which is only a few steps away, right by the pool and have your evening meal outside! (great food) Beautiful scenery! Very few people!!!!! All this without getting in your car. How nice is that!!

You can also do the ordinary things, golf, play tennis, shop, go to other beaches, eat out (very inexpensive), or go to one of the neighboring towns. Boca Grande is a must..wonderful little village! Beautiful homes!

RELAXING

  • 5 of 5

The description for this condo is right on. We stayed the month of March. 30 of the 31 days were 83 degrees and no wind. Wonderful golf is just 10 minutes away. Spent our time reading on the lanai while watching the activity in the Marina, playing golf and visiting the many wonderful restaurants and nearby towns and beaches. A great experience and highly recommended.

Fun in the sun at Harbortown!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first vacation at Harbortown and it was all that was stated. This one bedroom condo was ideal for a couple looking to seek a fun, but relaxing time with the various amenities it has to offer. The dinners at Rum Bay or Leverrock's restaurant were well worth the price. The private beach was wonderful, as the beach chairs were right there, and the beach is a much less populated place for great walks and sea shell searching. The pool area was truly a welcome addition after a day of sightseeing. Lorna happened to be in the complex during our stay and she was very willing to fix a TV glitch with Xfinity. Lorna was very quick to respond to any request we had in booking the condo and worked with us in scheduling her place. We appreciate all that Lorna did to accommodate our needs. Englewood is a relaxing adventure with parks, beaches, art festivals, farmer's markets, seafood festivals, and harbor activities to keep you as busy as you want to be. We plan to visit Englewood again.

Can't beat the location and the view.

  • 5 of 5

This is the 4th year that we have stayed for the month of February and are looking forward to next year. A great location overlooking the marina. A short drive to stores and many restaurants. Water taxi to island, beach and Rum Bay restaurant. A nice 15min scenic trip. Pool and hot tub are great and you can walk to a great restaurant. Nice to have breakfast on the lanai overlooking the marina.

ROMANTIC GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5

What a nice change of pace! We were extremely tired upon our arrival and the condo was clean and bright. Day after day, the morning sun, blue skies and water and a nice warm breeze. The lanai provides a nice view of the boat activities. While there, we took the ferry to Palm Island, where we found a beautiful and private beach. The restaurant, within walking distance provides a nice meal, and again the view. The pool area is also within walking distance and is very clean. This condo is located near the beaches, restaurants, grocery stores and major cities. This is a great place to unwind and get away from it all.

Nice change of pace to your typical beach condo.

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this condo during Spring Break. It was a good value for the price and a nice change from your typical beach condo. We frequently opened up the unit and a nice cool breeze would flow through. The screened in porch was great for relaxing and looking out over the boats. It was also nice to take a short stroll outside around the marina/pool area and look at the boats, water and general scenery. Everything was in convenient driving distance or one night when we didn't feel like driving so we just walked over to the restaurant on site. The condo had everything we need so after a short trip to a local grocery store, we were set to eat in when we felt like it. The water taxi was a fun change, but watch out when you are coming back if its later at night. We really enjoyed this condo for what it had to offer and look forward to coming back.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the wonderful review for your vacation at HARBORTOWN, You really enjoyed all the amenities ...beautiful pool on the harbor, with constant change of scenery with the boats, the on site restaurant, that, is easy access for drinks, appetizers, meals or an after dinner surprise, and only steps away. I LOVE that you can sit back and be served AT THE POOL. Feels like a St Johns vacation!! The water taxi is always fun...dolphins jumping in the wake and on to the beach for some quiet time with only the sound of the ocean, On the way home, after a relaxing time at the beach, it is nice to stop at the Island restaurant for a snack, drink or dinner! Easy to jump back to from the beach...so no packing lunch! And as I always mention. NO CROWDS!! Florida the way it should be enjoyed!

Lovely harbor view condo

  • 5 of 5

Very nice unit. Was clean, bright, nicely decorated and had great views. Watching boat activity etc in the harbor from the lani was delightful. Complex is a nice small size (28 units) which we like. Met many nice people just lounging by the pool. Great area with plenty of helpful info provided by the owners!

Car: recommended

Englewood is an 'undiscovered' area on the Gulf, located between Ft. Myers and Tampa. It has wonderful white sandy beaches, with aquamarine waters,which extend for miles, with cottages nestled in the dunes and dolphins jumping through the waves. Great for shell searching and shark tooth gathering or just relaxing with your favorite book. Usually very few people, leaving the beauty of the water and beach for you to enjoy. Numerous waterfront restaurants with amazing seafood dishes fresh from the Gulf are situated throughout the area. The prices are great!! With so many beaches to choose from, you could go to a new one each day.Sarasot, St. Armends Circle, Venice, Boca Grande...all less than 1/2 hour away for shopping. Tennis, golf, fishing, or tour boat rides are just a few minutes away. Fun for the whole family! To get to our private beach, we go by boat. A nice ride up the bay to Palm Island where the lounge chairs are set up for your use. There is also a restaurant, so no coolers!

Notes:
This is a very low keyed area with limited guests as there are only two buildings. One is two stories high and the second is three, both right on the harbor. Total number of units is 28. Our unit is on the first level. Children and pets are allowed here, but pets must be on a leash at all times, and are not allowed by the pool or on the beach. That is a state law. There is a dog run area just steps from the condo. Due to guests with allergies, I would limit pets to small, non-shedding dogs. The convenience of the restaurant right near the pool, makes for easy lunches or drinks while you relax by the pool, watching the boat activity. There is also an outdoor grill area by the condo and also by the pool for those sunset meals by the water. A water taxi comes to the pool area, and will pick up guests from the condo and take them to our private beach on Palm Island. The lounge chairs are set up for you there. It is a very secluded beach, so lots of privacy and wonderful water.
