Englewood Beach House Rental Photos and Description
3 Bedroom, 3 Bath Waterfront Pool Home, Deep Water Dock, No Bridges To Gulf
EXPERIENCE WATERFRONT LIVING at its best in this spacious 2443 sq ft open concept home, beautifully decorated and located on a quiet residential cul-de-sac road on an inlet of Lemon Bay. You can enjoy boating, fishing, golfing, and the beach in this quaint Gulf of Mexico waterfront community. This is a wonderful couples retreat.
The home's backyard has southern exposure (most desirable). Sit under the 400 square foot covered and screened lanai and enjoy sunsets, dolphin watching and manatees lazing about or take a dip in the solar heated salt water pool.
Bring your boat because this house has two boat lifts (10,000 lb and 16,000 lb) under roof in a superb dock with well and city water spigots and a fish cleaning table. For a larger boat or sailboat there is mooring space at the expansive dock. Fish from the dock for snook, black drum, or sheepshead or hop in your boat for a quick trip to fish Lemon Bay for snook, redfish or trout. Have a need for deep water – then in 5 minutes be in the Gulf of Mexico and head out for a day of deep sea fishing for Tarpon, Grouper, Red Snapper and Amberjack to name a few! If you like the beach, it is a 5 minute boat ride to Palm Island beach or Stump Pass beach for beachcombing. Just want to cruise the intracoastal waterway and boat to restaurants – you are only 1500 feet from the intracoastal with several boat/water access restaurants within a few miles.
Also located nearby are activity parks, tennis courts, hiking trails, golf courses, libraries, nature parks, restaurants…most within walking distance. If shopping is your desire, visit gift and antique shops and browse the art galleries in Olde Englewood Village or the Fishery in Placida. Explore the towns of Boca Grande on Gasparilla Island or Venice on Venice Island. Drive or boat to barrier islands nearby for beach combing and swimming, snorkeling, or surf fishing. Boca Grande Pass is world renowned for Tarpon fishing during Tarpon Season. Tarpon fishing is excellent along any of the beaches as well as Boca Grande Pass during Tarpon Season (Apr-Jun) and from our location you can boat over to the beach in minutes...or boat on down to the Boca Grande Pass.
Within a day’s drive you can visit Tampa (Straz Performing Arts and Busch Gardens), St. Petersburg (Dali Museum), Orlando (Disney World), Cape Canaveral (Space Center), Naples and Sanibel or even the Florida Keys! Like sports? Tampa and Miami have professional baseball, basketball, football and hockey teams. Visit during Spring Baseball Season and see 13 different major league teams play all within 20 minutes to a few hours drive. Have the best of both worlds...relaxation on the waterfront and exciting, fun filled outings.

About Ron & Donna Strich
We live in Englewood - this property was our home that we remodeled to suit us and we planned to stay in it forever (never say forever :-) - then we had an opportunity to buy a larger house on the same street and decided to do that...so now we can accommodate our growing family (grandchildren) when they come to visit us. We love this area as it truly is an undiscovered gem. Donna is originally from the Gulf Coast - in Mississippi, Ron grew up in Kentucky, but lived most of his adult life in Colorado. Ron attended the Air Force Academy and decided he liked it there and stayed a while. We met in 2004 and were married 'in a Hurricane' - actually we got married in July 2005, then rode out Hurricane Katrina in August in Mississippi where we lived at the time. After going through that rebuilding experience, we decided to semi-retire to Florida.
Ron & Donna Strich purchased this house in 2006
Why Ron & Donna Strich chose Englewood Beach
In 2006 we decided we wanted to retire to Florida, Ron was familiar with the area because he had built a house for his Mom and Dad to winter in in the area so we began looking at property. We knew we wanted waterfront with deep water. Because we like to deep sea fish, we also wanted property close to a pass for Gulf fishing, and has a lot of bay and near shore fishing opportunity too. We didn't want the 'big city' hustle and bustle, but close enough to visit one if we wanted to do other 'city' activities. We searched from Pine Island to Nokomis and then we discovered this hidden gem - convenient to everything but you feel far away from it all when you are sitting on your lanai and relaxing in the evening. With so few Gulf access passes, we found a unique property that allows us to enjoy any type of water activity activity.
What makes this house unique
This home makes you feel like you are a part of the water - you can see dolphin playing and manatees swimming while cooking supper! We love the fact that we have deep water for our boats, can have a roof on our dock and be in the Gulf of Mexico in 5 minutes. You cannot replicate this home today with the restrictions in building codes for waterfront property. High ceilings, no stairs and water views at water level in a modern, high end home.
