About Karen

Robert and Karen (and their children) live in beautiful Evergreen Colorado. Robert is a native of Colorado, and Karen was born and raised in Ithaca, NY. Robert is a News Photojournalist for CBS news in Denver, and Karen is a Mortgage Broker.

Karen purchased this condo in 2012

Why Karen chose Englewood

We were married in 2004 on the beach. We are pictured here in a nearby bunch of bananas, just one of the unique tropical trees in the area. When unit 22D became available in early 2012, we knew we had found our seaside treasure. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We cannot say enough about this great location. We stayed in 22D, right up front and overlooking the pool. Convenient to everything.

The unit was clean, VERY nice without being so luxurious that you felt you could not touch anything. Everything worked, was fully supplied and easy to find and use.

The beach is SO close and easy to get to and clean and gorgeous. Turtle nests everywhere, saw dolphins in the water and collected dozens of shark teeth. Played in the surf, walked the beach, loed it all. Visited Venice, Ft. Myers, Sanibel, still like this beach the most. Three really good and convenient places to eat and drink, a fun local theater group let us sit in on a dress rehearsal for their upcoming production. Went to Rum Bay for lunch, GREAT trip.

And all of this the same week as a tropical storm! WE WILL be back!

Beautiful Beach and Great Memories

  • 5 of 5

Great Condo..... We spent 3 wonderful weeks with family. We booked 2 weeks but really wasn't ready to come home. We were able to book another week. It is very well equipped with everything you need. We loved how it overlooked the pool (which seemed like a private one). We spent every day on the beautiful beach and evenings in the pool. My grandkids loved it. Ages 7 & 5. They loved riding the boogie boards (provided by condo). If you like shelling & shark teeth's paradise. We found plenty and my son found a huge one. This was our first time staying on the Gulf side since we are only 3 hours from Atlantic Beaches. The Sunsets are absolutely breathtaking. We were use to seeing sunrises on our beaches. We visited several other beaches like Siesta Keys (pretty sandy beach but way too crowded) We also, went to Blind Pass Beach which is also on the Manasota Key Island. The memories we made will last a Lifetime. We will definitely be returning. Although a 12 1/2 hour drive for us, we still loved it. Maybe fly down next time. The stairs was rough for me since I have bad knees but family took care of that. I made one trip down and they carried everything. :) can't say enough about how awesome this condo is. Thank you Karen for sharing your condo with us.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your great comments and I am so pleased that you and your family had such a good time. Castaways is such as fantastic place and the beach is amazing. I would like a picture of the large shark tooth to post on the website as well. I found one last summer that nearly fills the palm of my hand and is just over 2" long. It washed ashore shortly after a windy day and was just lying in the sand at the waters edge! So much fun. Hope you are able to return next summer, just let me know. Thanks again! Best, Karen

Great location for Christmas Break

  • 4 of 5

We really liked the condo and the location was incredible with restaurants/bars within walking distance. The facility was very nice and it accommodated my Wife and I, with 3 college age children. 2nd bathroom was a little on the small size, but worked out. We would recommend the property and will definitely consider renting in the future!

Beautiful beach and pool

  • 4 of 5

The location was excellent, beautiful ocean views from the deck, where we ate most of our meals. The pool was a huge hit with the kids, as of course, was the ocean! there were 2 minor irritations. The quartz countertops, although pretty, made us a little paranoid. We are all cooks, and are not used to treating a kitchen as fine furniture, but we did our best. The other irritation was that there was a large party one night, loud well past 11:00 at the pool. The next morning we saw broken bottles at the bottom of the pool. I must give huge kudos to lady cleaning the pool area. She was on it immediately, and the pool was reopened in just a couple of hours. I would also suggest that there be 6 chairs that fit the inside and outside tables, as the condo is advertised for 6. All in all, these critiques are minor compared with the overall pleasant experience, and I give it a huge "thumbs up".

Adorable place!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year in a row staying in this unit. The place is very clean and adorably decorated. The counters are made of quartz in the kitchen, my advice is to be very gentle and careful with such a soft Stone especially if you have children staying in the unit with you. I would recommend this place to absolutely anyone!

Condo was ok. Smaller than anticipated. Nicely decorated and had a lovely porch facing the gulf. However, it was not very clean. Stove was very dirty. Had to clean it before I felt comfortable cooking on it. Second bathroom is extremely small and owner accused us of breaking toilet seat which we did not do. Deducted $40.00 from security deposit for repair. Don't know how or when it got broken, but even if it was, I would consider that wear and tear. Most of us have to replace a toilet seat now and then

Owner's Response: This bright, airy, two bedroom condo with vaulted ceilings is just as the listing depicts. It is wonderful! It is decorated with beachy décor and is very updated. We take the cleanliness of this condo very seriously and have very high standards for our guests. Writing me more than three months after departure to make me aware of your concern for the first time makes it impossible for me to do anything about your concern. Had a call been placed or the on site office manager been notified upon arrival with your concern, the housekeeper would have been sent to the condo immediately to take care of the issue. Future guests, please note, we have a housekeeping, maintenance and office staff at the property that can accommodate any need you have. We take great pride is offering a well appointed, highly updated condo and clean condo with all of the amenities one would expect for a beach vacation. Englewood Beach is a fabulous vacation destination and we appreciate every guest that visits and want our guests to have a wonderful vacation experience.
