Overview

Englewood Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10 - Salt water pool - Wireless Internet Access

This luxury villa is set in its own half-acre plot, just minutes from the delightful Manasota Beach. The Master bedroom boasts a king-size bed and a huge en-suite bathroom. Patio doors lead to the pool area. The second master suite has a queen-size bed, an en-suite bathroom, and patio doors leading to the pool area. There are two twin bedded rooms, each with a spare roll-away bed. The family bathroom is situated between these rooms. The villa has a formal dining-room, a quiet lounge, a dining-kitchen, family room, laundry room and a larger than average double garage. The oversize salt-water pool with waterfall, is fully screened, heated, and the deck has two separate covered 'lanai' areas for when the Florida sunshine proves a little too hot. The villa is situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, close to conservation areas. Venice with its numerous restaurants, shops and theatres is a short drive away. Supermarkets etc are 6 min from the villa.

Manasota Beach: Manasota Beach is the most delightful beach you could wish for. The sand is pure white, and the sea is just superb. The area is unspoilt having only a toilet/shower block and some covered picnic/barbecue tables. There is adequate parking, which gives access to both the beach and the Intracoastal Waterway, where fishing is a must. A lifeguard is present during the season for your added peace of mind, but the beach is very safe for families. During the spring gopher turtles make nests in the sand, and these areas are always roped off to ensure you don't disturb a nest. A favourite pastime is searching for fossilised shark's teeth along the shore. In the evening take your favourite drink with you and stroll down to the beach to watch some of the most spectacular sunsets you will ever see, as night falls across the Gulf of Mexico. The Manasota Beach area is truly Florida the way it used to be before the arrival of theme parks and freeways - an experience not to be missed.

The Villa: The villa is built to the latest specification and the highest standard. No expense has been spared to create a luxurious home. The furnishings have been lovingly chosen and there are many extra touches. All linen is provided, including beach towels.

There is ample china/glassware and cooking equipment for the largest of families, and with a choice of dining areas every meal can be enjoyed to the full. The local supermarkets stock a large range of 'ready to cook' meals as well as the basics, so you can spend as little or as much time as you wish in the luxury kitchen. The separate lounge allows those who wish to escape the TV in the family room, to find a quiet haven for reading or simply enjoying the view across the pool to the trees where the Scrub Jays nest.

Conservation: The villa is built on the edge of a conservation area for the protected Scrub Jays. These delightful birds nest in the trees all around. The part of the garden behind the pool is protected for them, as is the area of land to the right of the villa.

Being situated at the end of a sandy lane means there will never be traffic passing the door, and you will be able to enjoy the natural surroundings which make this part of Florida so unique.

You may be lucky enough to see some of the gopher turtles in the garden along with squirrels, and some of the other beautiful sub-tropical birds, which abound. It is sometimes hard to believe that from this haven you are just minutes from great shops and restaurants. All this and the beach too - truly a 'one-of-a-kind' holiday experience.

September 2007 - 4 Adults

  • 5 of 5
We rented this villa from Sandy for the first 2 weeks in September 2007. This was the seventh time in 12 years that we had travelled out to Florida so we knew the area quite well, and we do love the beach at Manasota Key so we are a bit biased about the location.
This property is absolutely wonderful, the photographs that are posted do not do justice to the house, it is beautiful. Sandy has taken a lot of care and spared no expense in furnishing and equipping the property , everything in the house was spotlessly clean.There was absolutley nothing about this rental that in anyway disappointed any of our party. This is not just a rental property , this an M&S rental property (to borrow a catch phrase!).

In summary

Description and Layout ? - 100% accurate
Was the property clean ? - It was spotless and beautifully maintained
Did the owner provide good cs ? - The best
Would you recommend the property ? - To anyone who asks

The beaches at Englewood and Manasota Key are out of this world , particularly as the sun goes down. There are numerous restaurants , we found a great Thai in a block of shops at the US 41 fork going north, but there are loads within a few miles.

The funny thing is writing this has made me want to go back this year... my advice to anyone is if you are considering renting this property and it is available then book it, you will love it !

Owner's Response: I was delighted to receive this guest review.

I previously owned a villa in Kissimmee for some years, and have also stayed in a variety of other villas myself, so have a good idea of what makes a perfect villa.

When I had this villa built, my aim was to make this the villa that had everything. My thanks to the family who wrote this review, because it means I have achieved this aim.

Many of my guests have returned for a second or third visit, so check out my availability calendar and book early to avoid missing out

A little piece of heaven (away from Wales)

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in many villas all over the world, but this was by far the finest. It was spotless on arrival and I think the most well equiped villa we've rented. It's location was ideal for visiting the local area and shopping, and only a short walk from Manasota Beach to watch the stunning sunsets, swim in the luke warm waters of the gulf and of course collect shark's teeth.The birds and wild life in the area are stunning, and the locals we met made us welcome. The management company that looks after the villa were very efficient and friendly, and one small problem we had, was sorted out within 3hrs (pity that can't be said in this country). The confidence our grandson, who celebrated his 5th birthday while we were there, gained in the pool was unbelievable. Sandy has done a fabulous job on this villa, and hopefully we will return one day. I would recommend this villa to the most discerning of people.

Heaven Sent for a Special Holiday

  • 5 of 5
Of all the holiday properties we have stayed in, this is one of the best by far. The house is absolutely beautiful and Sandy has put a lot of thought and care into little touches which made us feel very welcome and very much at home. Even as a family of 8 there was so much space for us all which allowed us grandparents to have some quiet time to ourselves! The house was spotlessly clean, equipped and decorated to a very high standard with everything you could possibly need, including all thats needed for the beach for the children. We loved the locality, felt very safe there and also felt part of the community. This was our first holiday on the west coast of Florida, the beaches are lovely and so near to the house it was ideal. Our 4 young grandchildren spent most of their time at the house being in the swimming pool and consequently gained lots of confidence during our stay. We particularly liked the way the security fence for the pool worked which was ideal as the youngest is only 20 months.
Sandy is a lovely lady and it was a pleasure to be able to talk to her on the phone. All the arrangements worked extremely well and the information provided was excellent. There are plenty of shops and restaurants in the area and the Orlando theme parks are only a couple of hours drive away too, which was perfect for us to spend Hanna's birthday at the Magic Kingdom!
We would certainly recommend this property to anyone. Following our son-in-law's recovery from a serious illness the family were in need of some TLC and staying in this house made it a special holiday for us all. Thank you Sandy and we are now saving up to return one day!

Manasota Beach is situated in the South Venice area of Sarasota County. The area abounds in Golf Courses and beautiful beaches. The coastline in the main has the beaches separated from the mainland by the Intracoastal Waterway. Manasota is one of the few places where this is bridged, so access is easy.

11 minutes drive will bring you to Venice - a truly wonderful resort, with theatres, upmarket shops and restaurants (try the seafood - it is out of this world) and wonderful buildings.

6 minutes drive will bring you to the shopping plaza where you can buy all your daily needs, and a great deal more. This is also the junction with the main road, which means easy accessibility to the rest of Florida or to and from the airport. The Manasota Beach area is a mixture of old and new houses, all individual - you won't find estates or subdivisions of like houses here. Many of the houses are set in their own grounds, as is our villa, affording privacy and peace after your day out.

Golf: There are numerous golf courses in the area, where the skill levels range from keen enthusiast to professional player.

The pool benefits from a salt-water system, which means no harsh chlorine to dry your skin, and bleach your hair and swimsuits. The water is the same salinity as your tears, so no more red eyes, and the water is so soft that it actually benefits your skin. The pool can be heated for the winter months. The large garden has a lawn and flowering shrubs - part of the rear garden is a conservation area for nesting Scrub Jays. Bicycles are provided for your enjoyment, as there are many quiet lanes to explore. (Nothing too energetic as the surrounding area is pretty level!)
