About Christa Murch & Jack Falitico
I am a German Immigrant. Arrived in USA 1978. Lived in Cajun Country Lousiana five years. Came to Florida 1983 . Love it here. I am a REALTOR since 1985, worked for Re/Max 12 years and now for Century 21 - enjoying my work. I purchased several investment properties over the years and I am renting to vacationers from all over the States and Europe. Enjoy meeting my guests and striving to provide a wonderful vacation time for them. Thank you all for visiting my Tropical Hideaway. Hope you come back one day in the future.
Christa Murch & Jack Falitico purchased this Studio in 2000
Why Christa Murch & Jack Falitico chose Englewood
I purchased this little vintage 'cottage' because it is a very special place and it depicts the ' old fashion' Florida Lifestyle. I can accommodate short term vacationers , some of which come from the big cities near by just for a long weekend to relax. I also have the option to allow pets, which is hard to find for my travelers. We have a small marina, bring our boat. We are just a stone through away from the Intra Coastal Waterway. The fishing is plenty and the scenery breathtaking. We also have a large heated swimming pool for our guest. The private Beach access to the Gulf of Mexico is just a few yards away. The island features two Public Beaches, Englewood Beach and Stump Pass Beach Park with hiking trails.
What makes this Studio unique
The Benefits of my little Tropical Hideaway are many. Besides the features mentioned before, there are multiple places to visit and to enjoy. For instance there are boat/ jet ski and Kayak rental places on the island. The unique Restaurants offer delicious food and fun entertainment. You also can walk miles on the beach along the Gulf of Mexico, if you desire peace and quiet instead.

Manasota Key Studio
Wonderful studio...heated pool and intercoastal right outside the door, beach access is right across the street. Christa (owner) is just a phone call away...and always helpful. Super clean and cozy place..well stocked with anything you could possibly need. We saw a manatee right at the docks.
This little Hideaway truly offers a "tropical vacation" and I am delighted to have so many "happy campers" and repeaters at my place...
Quiet slice of paradise
Well-kept grounds. Clean pool. Could have stayed forever!
A beautiful week of memories
Studio apartment for no more than two , needs a smaller dining table with only 2 chairs and a single 3 or 4 drawer not a double 8 drawer. That would then actually leave room for chair and ottoman or even a small love seat. Thanks for having us
The owners were great to work with, accommodating and answered important questions; who has the best pizza and were there any community tennis courts? The neighbors were friendly and shared where to get the best ice cream and fresh produce. The pool was perfect and the gulf was a short walk across the street.
small but great for two people.
i had purchased an air bed because the bed they had was not comfortable. But when we opened the door there was a brand new queen bed. never used the air bed because the new bed was very comfortable. They also have painted the apartment also.. It looks so nice and fresh now. We absolutely LOVED THE UPGRADES!! We love this area and plan on returning every year.
We also got to meet Jack. What a fun person.
Thanks to you both for the upgrades and great place to stay in.
