Englewood Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6

There's only one HIGHVIEW on the Island and WE HAVE IT! See high above it all and enjoy. The Islands only rental with panoramic water views every where you look. The best sunsets, sunrises, full moons, weather patterns and rainbows are all right here on top of the Highview! One more bonus, there's also awesome star gazing in the evenings from our top deck.

Location,location,location! What a location The Highview has. Situated on the southern tip of the Island, you could almost throw a coconut from Gulf to the Bay here. JUST STEPS TO THE BEACH and Stumps Pass. This rental stands high above the rest in every way. When views, quality and cleanliness are important , The Highview delivers all and more!

Enjoy our beach cruisers bikes, Stand Up Paddle Boards and kayaks, there FREE to use and included with your rental. Kick back in the orange lifeguard chairs and take in the awesome views. Our signature roof top deck is like the Islands only light house. Imagine yourself sitting high above it all with a cool drink in your hand. You are now overlooking the entire south end of Manasota Key. Nothing but blue water and blue sky everywhere. The Highview gets two thumbs up from the locals and is a great spot for any occasion.

Walk freely around the open floor plan and decks. There is high speed wireless internet, two bedrooms with high quality linens, and three flat screen TVs. Enjoy cooking your favorite meal in the fully equipped kitchen. The comfortable open Living room has a large flat screen HDTV, and beautiful Gulf Views. If outdoors is your thing you'll feel right at home here. Two new Weber grills and picnic tables nestled in shells. Wash your new found shells in the shell cleaning station, enjoy the enclosed open top outdoor shower with blue sky views or just sip a cool drink and be swept away by the lush tropical landscaping that surrounds 'The Highview'

One of the best things about this home is it's location. It's right next door to Stump Pass State Park. There are 265 acres of sandy walking trails and pristine beaches. You can ALWAYS find a section of beach all to yourself. The wildlife here is amazing. You will see pelicans diving for fish, Osprey in tree tops, dolphins and manatee swimming the shoreline. Sea turtles lay eggs here every year and don't forget to look for prehistoric sharks teeth (not hard to find) and go shelling at the point.

If you've been here before you know it's allure, if it's your first time, get ready for a soul refreshing journey!

Bring your friends and family, the bottom floor may be available. Call or email for Pictures and pricing.

Guestbook comments from the owner
On our vacation to do list was Rest, Relaxation and Fun this year. We have never been to Florida before and knew we did not want to stay in a regular hotel. With 1000's of condos to choose from, we accidentally stumbled upon this gem of a house and location. Every detail of the this property is well thought out from the inside decor, outside decor, beach toys, BBQ pit, outdoor shower, Shell Washing Station, Bikes, WIFI, Roof top deck that overlooks 360* of the neighborhood, beach and bay. You will not want for anything. Close to shopping and local restaurants, The property allowed us to take endless walks on the beach. We spent our last day snorkeling for sand dollars and finding the famous "Sharks Teeth" on the Beach. For those who want to play with the beach lifestyle and truly "Get Away", this is the property to stay at on your next vacation!

EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE

  • 5 of 5
The Hightower was not just comfortable but it was clean and very well organized. The kitchen was immaculate and the beds were clean and cozy.
The view from the first floor is limited to a peek a boo of the gulf but the well manicured landscaping more than makes up for it. The landscaping was like a resort!
On a clear night, the Milky Way is easily visible from the top deck. The top deck also offers stunning views of gulf and the entire key.
The owner was accessible and extremely helpful after our Wi-Fi went out after a small storm.
The trail to Stumps Pass offers plenty of wildlife and is a very easy from The Hightower. In addition all neighbors were very friendly.

Owner's Response: Hi Jenny
Thanks for the Five Star Review and pointing out the immaculate kitchen and accommodations. Clean is our top priority. The "resort" style landscaping is a passion of ours. It was truly a labor of love to build a canopy of coconut palms, white birds of paradise and all the red hibiscus.
Thanks for choosing The Highview and come back and see us again soon!
Best,
Peter & MaryJo

WHAT A GREAT MONTH

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at The Highview, basing our decision on other reviews and conversations with the owners. And we were not disappointed. A beautiful apartment with a gulf view and amazing 360 degree views from the rooftop deck! We had a family of Ospreys living in the tree next door and used the Kayaks (part of the rental) to venture out into the gulf and bay, many times surrounded by dolphins. Pete and Mary Jo were great and quickly responded to any we asked or needed. We would recommend this property to anyone who wants to spend time on this great little island. ALfready booked again for next year and cannot wait!

THANKSGIVING HIDEAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
Couldn't have picked a better island or place to stay for Thanksgiving. The weather was perfect! The home had all the amenities we could possibly ask for or need...from kayaks to a pizza cutter! All we had to do was bring ourselves, clothes, and food! The overlook deck made for BEAUTIFUL sunsets and Stump Pass Park was wonderful! The locals were great and the food at Lock and Key was wonderful! Very immaculate home and VERY PEACEFUL Island!! Will definately be back and we're even looking at "permanent" options! This home was all we could ask for and more! Thank you for making it available!

AN AMAZING PLACE FOR A FAMILY VACATION OR A ROMANTIC GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
The Highview is an amazing value. The reality of the condo exceeded what was listed on VRBO. Everything for a family to enjoy a beach get-a-way was provided, all you need to bring is toiletries and food if you want to stay in to eat. Our unit was very clean and well organized upon arrival. From the unit you could hear waves crashing and nothing else. The location is really in a quiet area.

All our communications with the owner and the property manager were responded to promptly.

Every day of our vacation we walked to the beach. While the property does look over the beach-side housing, to get to the beach you have to walk about three lots south and then turn west and enter at the public access. It's less than five minutes walking and there is a beach cart provided to make the short journey a piece of cake. The beach was not crowded at all and very clean. It's not a powdery white sand but a very nice crushed shell and light black sand. Peak shelling season is during the winter but we found some nice shells washed up and several wonderful live shells in the shallow water.

We usually ate in but did travel once to Flounders and once to the Lock and Key. Both served great food but at tourist pricing. I suppose if you want to eat in paradise you have to pay for it so be aware. Florida sales tax is quite low compared to Texas so we did catch a break there.

There was a nice large flat-screen TV with digital cable, smaller flat screens in the two bedrooms also hooked up to cable. There was secure wireless connected to the internet through a cable modem. There was also a wireless phone with answering machine.

The cellular coverage was two bars most of the time and we had no problems the entire stay using 3G services.

We loved our stay and look forward to going back. I would heartily recommend this rental as a great place for a family or as a secluded romantic getaway.

If you have bad knees or problems with stairs you should take that into consideration. The unit is on the third story and the observation deck is even higher.

Owner's Response: Hello Tim! Thanks for the FIVE star rating and pointing out two very important things in your review. Our home is very clean and an amazing value. Our goal is to provide you with spotless accommodations and everything you need for a fantastic vacation. From the free kayaks and bicycle to the Weber grills and Observation deck , we have more amenities here than any other rental on the Island. I hope you got to try all the beach paths. Each being very different and interesting. The closest being less than a minutes walk with beautiful palm trees waving by the blue gulf waters, the one north that has Australian pine trees for shade and then theirs Stump Pass State Park. A two minute walk brings you to the opening of 265 acre, untouched pristine barrier Island. One walk through this park to the tip of the Island and you will know what heaven looks like. Thanks so much for choosing our home for your vacation and come back and see us soon!

All the best,

Peter
