About the property

Harborfront..Location, Location! This condo allows you to view the harbor / bay activity from your own private lanai. Fully furnished with air and ceiling fans throughout. Gentle harbor breezes greet you in the dining and living room. Private heated pool and hot tub, on harbor, just steps away. Only two condo buildings(w/ elevator),makes this a very private area. A fabulous restaurant with inside/ outside dining, allows for drinks or meals served poolside! A boat ride takes you to our private beach on Palm Island.! A real 'vacation' luxury! Full kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, toaster, coffeemaker, blender etc. Gas grill available for meals on the waterfront lanai Washer/ dryer. Linens and towels supplied. Cable T.V. VCR, DVD, wi-fi, stereo, included. Beautiful sandy beaches, minutes away. Access to Palm Island by ferry, a block away, 3 miles to Boca Grande. Cape Haze, Venice and Sarasota min. away. '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 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!

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.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the care of our little condo. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay, and yes, the restaurant right on the harbor, is not only convenient but also delicious. Love sitting there, or at the pool watching the boat activities. Also fun to just relax at the condo and enjoy the view of the water from the lanai. Hopefully, we will see you again!

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.

With only 28 condos, it is never crowded or noisy! There is Sat entertainment at the pool, also! The perfect spot! Thanks for the review! See you next year! 😎🌴

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.

Palm Island...private water taxi
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 an 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!
