I have been here since 1995 and take pride in my families home to not only keep it in great shape and nice than other properties but I keep improving it every year to make it the BEST. Below is information on me but talk with me personally and lets visit. I like to get to know my guest and they like to come back that's why I have 36% repeat business this year.941.661.0371. I am from Colorado my fiancé Caroline is from Rhode Island. I moved to Florida back in 1995. Both of us work in the medical field. I am a USCG Master Captain and a NAUI dive instructor and we both spend a lot of time on our boat at our beach or on the motorcycle. If you stay at our home and want rent a boat, charter a fishing trip, go scuba diving or rent a Harley Davison and ride around I can help you out. Caroline is the tour guide and shopping guide person and can tell you where all the malls and outlet stores are in Sarasota which is 1to the 5 to 20 minutes away.
Scott purchased this House in 2005
Why Scott chose Englewood
We take great pride in our home. This quaint beach house is within easy walking distance to a Tiki bar on the bay, fine dining and casual restaurants as well as a convenience store and other shopping and boardwalk. We have simply tried to think of everything you would want, or need, to make your vacation a very special experience. We are literally 150 feet from one of the most beautiful beaches that Florida has to offer, as well as being only 600 feet from Lemon Bay. Bring your boat, use one of the nearby ramps, rent a dock or moor on the bay. You will have direct access to the Gulf of Mexico within minutes. This is a renowned fished and boating area. You can surf cast off the beach from anywhere on the island, or charter boats for tarpon, flounder, grouper, mackerel or redfish.It doesn't get any better than this! This home is the perfect getaway from the bustle and noise of everyday life, or to enjoy the glamour and excitement of Florida's Gulf Coast. The choice is yours:Spend a day at the beach, just doing...nothingExplore protected wildlife areas and bird sanctuariesVisit Stump Pass State Park or Dine at one of the local restaurants. This home is only minutes (0.4 miles) from some of the finest dining and nightlife in Florida. The area also has plenty of opportunities for shopping, golf, boating, fishing and much more. We are within easy driving distance of many of Florida's most popular cities and attractions. Venice and Sarasota are a short drive, and provide many cultural attractions and unusual shopping opportunities. We are within a 2-3 hour drive of Tampa/St.Petersburg, Orlando (Disney World), Fort Myers and Naples.

Slice of paradise
I would recommend this get away to anyone, it’s literally the perfect relaxation destination. My family and I rented both the large 3b/1b and the attached 1b/1b. Although, we could have gotten away with just the larger rental it’s very spacious and it has a billiard table. Both the large and small were worth the money, each has its own style and feel. Our dog was able to run around outside in the fenced in area. The landscape was beautiful we spent a lot of time on site tanning and just hanging out grilling on their complimentary grill. It was easy to get around the key. We rode the complimentary bikes everywhere and we also rode stumpys free golf cart rides to the restaurants and the public beaches. The private beach was just steps from our front door. There’s lots of beautiful scenery, we walked the nature trail less than a mile down, we kayaked, had on site massages and ate the most delicious stone crabs also from less than a mile down the road. If beauty, adventure and relaxation is what your searching for this is the place.
Best place I’ve stayed on Manasota Key !
This beach house is by far the best place yet that I’ve stayed at on the Key. One minute walk and my feet were in the sand. It was so convenient to be able to walk back to the house for more drinks or to use the restroom. Scott , the owner , is very personable and takes great pride in his home.
I’ve stayed here a few times and I’m never disappointed. Perfect location, clean house , yummy nearby restaurants. We will stay here again .. we love it!
Great time at the Beach and Beach House.
My family and I had a great time at this Manasota Key beach house. The house was every thing that the online site mentioned. Very clean and stocked with all kitchen and bath, only needed to bring food and drink. The owners were in contact before our trip with all information we needed. The beach itself was beautiful and quite. Plenty of room to relax and the water Beutiful. We will defiantly be back!
What a mess
Place was filthy when we arrived! Took multiple photos - old food in fridge, clothes strewn everywhere, cigarette butts in ashtray, lawn in disarray - nothing at all like the photos.. Washing machine broken upon arrival and filled with dirty water/clothes from Saturday until Tuesday night. No privacy from son's constant interruptions - for no real reason. Daily visits Sun/Mon/Tue/Wed from owner or his son.
Price charged was not price listed on web site. Owner said that is VRBO not him and to address with VRBO.
After paying airfare and traveling down to FL with my family and arriving to that mess, I was completely humiliated on top of enduring the mess.
Again we apologize for the late check in. We reached out to you as soon as we knew that there was an issue. The rental was turned over after a late check out, and the washing machine broke during the turnover of the unit. We made you aware of the late check in due to the issues with the on site laundry. Also, linens then needed to be done off site due to the washing machine breaking. We attempted to accommodate you and remedy the situation by a reimbursement of $100 due to the short delay. Also a decent 15-20 minutes of the 45 minute delay was due to addressing your questions about the area. Upon your arrival, we made you thoroughly aware of the situation, allowed you to put your belongings inside and gifted you $100, 2 bottles of wine and watermelon suggesting you may enjoy the beaches view less than 100 steps from the home or have a meal at one of the enjoyable restaurants near by for the short delay. The only face to face time we had with your party was to fix the washer, as soon as possible. The washing machine which needed a special part mail ordered to fix. And we offered to accommodate your needed washables at our rentals across the street until the issue was fixed. Again many of the rentals on the key do not offer washing facilities, that is an added perk of the home. The other personnel visit on site was to provide fresh linens to you due to the lack of a washing facility. The issues that you are stating we’re not brought to our attention until a week after you had left. We do apologize for the inconvenience but we do not offer full refunds after a party has stayed their entire stay with no complaint. The minor check in issue at hand was addressed immediately and the appropriate action was implemented to resolve your issue. For future reference please make us aware ahead time If you feel as if the issue is mishandled and not appropriately addressed or that there were discrepancies. We are an honest family run business that Will address legitimate discrepancies, though we do not give free money to individuals attempting to extort money a week after check out over a review.
Enjoyed the privacy of the beach and the characters at the local White elephant.. teens liked the pool table.
Thank you Donna, you are welcomed back anytime!
A Quick Getaway
I recommend this property to anyone looking for a getaway that offers plenty of outdoor activities, good restaurants, a laid-back atmosphere, and fun at the beach. This home is exactly as advertised, just steps from the beach, situated on a quiet lane, tropically landscaped yard that provided a much needed, relaxing vacation. The house is well maintained with an updated kitchen and bath. There were more amenities than my husband and I needed, but certainly very appreciated. The shed is full of beach equipment, in addition, bicycles were available for our use, which was an unexpected bonus. Thank you, Scott and Ryan, for being perfect hosts and we look forward to visiting again.
Deborah, you are so very welcome, and thank you for leaving such a wonderful review. I can tell that you clearly had an dtime here this year, and hope to see you again in the future!
