Overview

About the property

Villa, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Beautiful modern villa, which sits in its own half-acre garden, on a short 'dead-end' lane.

Just a short stroll brings you to the unspoiled Manasota Beach, where you can just relax, or search for shells and fossilized sharks' teeth. Return in the evening for breathtaking sunsets!

This villa has everything, and has been equipped lovingly by the owners to ensure your vacation is stress-free. Amenities range from luxurious padded poolside furniture, to bikes for those more energetic days. If you MUST keep in touch with the office then make use of the free wireless Internet broadband, or the free phone calls to over 100 countries.

The villa sleeps 10 comfortably, as there are two rollaway beds for flexibility of sleeping arrangements.

About The Owner

We live in the UK as our family is here and we love to be near to our grandchildren.

The time we get to spend in our lovely home near Manasota Beach is very special and we are never ready to leave when it is time to go back home.

We lost our first Florida home in Kissimmee to the 2004 hurricanes, and our aim was to make our new home the villa that had everything! The villa was built for us in 2006 and from the testimonials we have received it would seem that we achieved this aim.

We hope our future guests will continue to appreciate our wonderful home.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2006

Why The Owner chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

After losing the Kissimmee villa, we decided to build a villa in the spot we considered to be a real taste of Paradise. We think you will agree we found it.

What makes this villa unique

The most beautiful sunsets across the Gulf of Mexico, a lovely unspoilt beach, the excitement of collecting fossilized sharks' teeth on the sand, and all just a few minutes walk away.

We love the seclusion of the villa, and the friendly neighbors, as well as the proximity to shops and restaurants.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent a fantastic 7 weeks at Sandy's lovely, private villa in Engelwood! We stayed during January and February, 2016. Everything we needed was provided. Our entire family, especially the grandchildren, loved the pool. The bikes were an added bonus! Great for riding to the beach, about a half mile away. Any questions we had were answered quickly. Sandy was very professional.

We had planned to return for six weeks, mid-January to the end of February, 2017. However, in September, Gary was diagnosed with cancer that requires nine months of treatment to be administered where we live. We were very disappointed that we had to cancel our reservation. Sandy was very understanding and supportive.

We strongly recommend spending your vacation at Sandy's villa in Engelwood! Beautiful villa, perfect, private location, wonderful owner to work with.

We stayed at this villa from Nov. 21, 2009 thru Nov. 28, 2009....

This home is beautiful....everything said in the description is true. The home is fully equipped for a holiday meal and has all the extras needed for an infant or toddler....even the pool has a safety screen around it......the beach is clean and the area is family oriented....

We would highly recommend this for a family of any age.....

you will find Sandy to be very helpful to make sure your stay is

perfect.....

Owner's Response: Our aim was to equip our villa with everything you could want - and for guests to be able to cook a family Thanksgiving dinner was really testing us out. We were delighted to hear that we passed this test with flying colours. Why not put us to the test, and book your vacation in our beautiful villa.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this area for a number of years and this house tops them all from the standpoint of amenities and attention to detail. The pool, grill, bikes, beach towels, beach chairs, and even beach toys literally allow for visitors to step into the house with everything they need already in place. There's lot of room and the floor plan is conducive to families. We had a little concern about the distance to the beach but the bikes and the short, enjoyable ride actually made for some great memories. Sandy was very responsive to e-mails in order to make our arrival simple and convenient. Highly recommended!

Stunning villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The villa was amazing and the pictures do not do it justice. All the furnishings and fittings are very high quality and the salt water pool was fantastic. We used the bikes to get to the beach, unfortunately the area had an incident of Red Tide whilst we were there so we could only use the beach towards the end of the holiday, but the pool more than made up for this. We are planning another trip to the area in the future, and would love to stay here again.

Beautiful well kept house

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house - well kept and cared for. 4 large bedrooms and 3 large baths, clean, neat and well maintained. The management company quickly responded to a pool heater issue even though it was on a Sunday! Will definitely recommend this property and will rent again when going back to Englewood, Florida.

Perfect family vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for the first week of January... my only hesitation in writing a review is that I do not want others to steal this perfect vacation home! The house is very spacious with two living rooms and 4 bedrooms. It is stocked with everything that you can imagine and everything is well maintained. We especially loved that it was set back in on such a private street. Sandy was the most wonderful person to deal with, super informative and accommodating. We opted to have the pool heated and it was the best decision ever. We had babies right down to 8 months old with us and every single one of us lived in the pool all day everyday! The walk to the beach is easy, not the most walking friendly road, but not terrible. It's a short walk with a beautiful view, we even managed to see manatees! I cannot say enough good things about this rental. We will definitely be booking this rental again! I'm hoping for a yearly event!! Thanks again Sandy!!

Manasota Beach
Car: necessary

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.
