About The Owner

Hi, my name is Neal Borasch I have been in the service industry for over 25 years I live by a very simple rule, we treat people like family. We want your experience to be a great one, a memorable one and something that you can share with your entire family.

Why The Owner chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

I have traveled around alot in the Caribbean and found that Englewood Beach Florida was what I was looking for, without the tourist hassles or inconveniences that go with traveling outside of the U.S.

Every morning you wake up you'll find yourself opening your door directly onto this beautiful beach.

What makes this condo unique

There are over 30 Championship Golf courses within 25 minutes. The tennis court is just a lob away. Great fishing outside your door, or go deep sea fishing down the street.

Water skiing, jet skiing, sailing and tubing don't need mittens for that.

Hunt for sharks teeth,shells and Ponce Deleon gold coins to be found. Dolphins, Manatee's, Tarpon, and lots of Sea Birds are just abundant right in front of your apt.

Ponce Deleon founded this area looking for the fountain of youth, some say he found it at Warm Mineral Springs just 20 minutes from where he first landed here. If your a star gazer than you got the right place, at night you'll see so many stars it's incredible, the Milky Way is even visible and if your timing is right you'll see a sunset and a moon set.

You won't see anything more spectacular than the beach lit by the full moon, it is one of the most romantic places that is so easy to get to in the U.S.

There's alot you can do here or you can do absolutely 'Nothing' why not you deserve it!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I tend to be rather demanding in my requirements for accommodations, and I love this studio apartment in Englewood. This is a lovely studio on the beautiful sandy beach. The accommodations were clean and very comfortable - especially the king sized bed. The owners have thought of everything and added little touches that really made the place special. The high speed wifi is a plus. Neal (owner) also is very helpful with local information and activity suggestions. I will definitely stay here again.

Our Experience

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I have stayed at a number of homeaway rentals and I have to say this was ONE of the best places we have stayed thus far. The moment we stepped out of our car we immediately smelled the scent of the ocean. The rental property is perfect for two, it was clean and very welcoming. We met Neal on the first night of our arrival. He provided us with a brief tour of the property and then proceeded us towards the back of the house. When he opened the back door, I have to tell you the pictures he listed gracefully provided you with a tease of what is to be expected. The scenery was AMAZING. There is one thing I will warn you of, especially if you come during the summer as we did, bring insect repellent. Thankfully Neal had some available for us. If you're reading this, take a chance you won't be disappointed. We enjoyed ourselves so much, we already started looking for availability a day before we had to leave. Thank you Neal and family for your hospitality. I'm sure you will hear from us very soon.

Great quiet beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful accommodations. We are return customers and really appreciate that we can bring our small dog. Beach is right out the door with amazing sunsets, dolphin and manatee watching, shelling and shark tooth hunting, and lessons on turtle nesting. We got to see newly hatched "pips" being recovered from nest and their release. We will definitely be back again.

Our Perfect Beachfront Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay here! We loved it so much that this has been our fourth year renting this unit. The accommodations were amazing!!!!!!!........Your back door opens directly to the beach!!!! The views of sunsets and the beach were unbelievable!!! We have witnessed a sea turtle building and leaving eggs in the daylight. Each day the view is filled with beautiful beaches, paddle-boarding, kayaking, dolphins and sailboats!!

Everything we needed for our stay was available......towels, grill, refrigerator, washer/dryer- even bicycles to use to ride to the convenient shopping/restaurants.

Dealing with the owner was a pleasure EVERY time. In the past four years, he has always worked with us to find a date that we could make. He is quick to respond to email and goes "over and above" to accommodate you.

It was always nice and a definite plus that the property was pet friendly and most importantly child-friendly. We even have taken our grandchildren and they had a BLAST!!!!

By far..........THE BEST PLACE, OVERALL WE HAVE EVER STAYED!!!

My Beach Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot really describe how this beach house make me feel. As soon as I arrive a sincere peacefulness comes over me and holds on my entire visit. You literally need to bring nothing but your swim suit and suncreen. The location is perfect. This last trip were as if we had our own private beach . . . sunrise and sunsets everyday from our chairs on the beach. The accommodations are perfect in every sense: from the new "oh so comfortable" bed, to the shower wash in the large shower, full size new appliances, comfy sofa, bikes to ride, gas bbq outside the door and comfortable air conditioning . . . you need to bring nothing other than your personal items. I have already booked our next trip for July. Thanks, Neal, for being a great host! See you soon. Cathy Gandee

Dream come true!

  • 5 of 5

Oh my....absolutely wonderful, perfect, and all you could ever ask for in staying almost in the beach instead of on. Door to the beach is more than a true description for sure. Door to pure happiness, peace, and joy for the beach goer and sun God or Goddess. The cottage is immaculate and stocked for all needs rather in restroom or kitchen. The master bed was fantastic as was the temperature and fans in the home after coming in from the heat. Bikes, washer and dryer, beach toys for the kids, and on and on. Manatee within first 30 minutes being there and in the ocean. Dolphins, many, saw daily. And the turtles!!!! Saw one nesting one night and even go to see the STOP ladies assisting a nest that had already hatched. The beach is so secluded in a way as folks consider this part of the beach, Florida, and area, "old Florida." Just like the good old days before all the commercial stuff. None of that here. Just a wonderful vacation for our family. I was sad to leave and am anxious already to return. Well worth the stay as all of the comforts are more than you could hope for and it's just a wonderful rental thanks to Neal!!!!

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

After our wedding on May 10th we made our way to the rental property. When we got there we were blown away by the location and view! Not a very touristy area which kept the beach relatively empty. We were only about a hour away from Ft Myer and Tampa which made for easy day trips. The rental property was very clean and we were pleasantly surprised with how much was actually stocked in the property. Neal (the owner) was awesome from start to finish. Our neighbors were very cool and were great to hang out with. Overall the perfect property to get away, relax, and watch the sunset!
