About Ann Urbanski
We built our beach home and spent many summers here when our children were young. Now our children and grandchildren enjoy their vacations here
Ann Urbanski purchased this House in 1969
Why Ann Urbanski chose Englewood
This is a prime beach location on the West Coast of Florida--no high rises or condos allowed in our area which is a Florida Conservation District. Since we built our home years ago, there are now mansions being built but nothing is like our Florida Beach Cottage.
What makes this House unique
Our family gathers here so that we may enjoy each other and our darling grandchildren. We had our five granddaughters and grandson here on Memorial Day.

Unique style house, which we loved, in quiet area. Perfect!
First of all, I very rarely write reviews, so take that into consideration when reading my review.
Overall a great experience!
The house set up is very unique, a little outdated, but not bad by any means. It was perfect for my family and we ended up really loving it!
-Communication with owners could not have been better. They always responded quickly. They were very helpful with all my questions.
-They do not provide a lot of pictures but did try and send me a few extras.
-Beds/linens were very comfortable.
-Kitchen has everythign you could possibly need and they share their condiments/spices etc which is very generous! We've never had an owner do that.
-Washer and dryer worked great.
-The area is very quite and not touristy at all, which we love.
-Fishing on the beach was amazing for my son and husband, they could not have been any happier. They did go on a fishing charter and ended up with a ton of fish.
-Beach was nice, not white sand like we thought, but still perfect.
-Water was beautiful and pretty clear. The only complaint is there is a reef right in front of the house, but my husband loves snorkeling, the rest of us do not.
-Lots of shells all over which turned into a fun family activity and we brought home a lot of shells as keepsakes.
-Absolutely breathtaking sunsets!
-Plently of grocery stores/pharmacies close by.
-A few really good restaurants within about a 15mile radius.
-Several activities close by but we chose to hang out at the house and enjoy the beach.
-They do have kayaks & life jackets but we didn't get a chance to use them.
-We chose to bring our own beach chairs, I never looked to see if they had any.
We highly recommend this house and hope to make it back next year!
We spent the week after Thanksgiving here and it was so very quiet and restful...just what we needed. The house was very clean and comfortable, and we even used the fireplace a few chilly evenings. The beach was deserted. Local restaurants were excellent, just a few miles down the road. The owner was available through email almost constantly for questions and answers. We've rented properties several times now and this was the simplest process and most enjoyable vacation yet for us. Thanks Ann!
Perfect Hidden Treasure
We held a small wedding here in Oct. 2010 and it was absolutely perfect. The pictures do not do it justice!... the view is completely breathtaking. It truly is paradise. So seculded and away from crowd. It's your own beach and all the beauty with it!!!! Can't wait to go back
The perfect place to relax
I just returned from a wonderful stay in this home. It has everything you could think of needing from a blender to have a Pina Colada at sunset to beach buckets to hunt for sharks teeth. If you love just walking on the beach, fishing, looking for sharks teeth and being surrounded by nature. This is the perfect house. It was one of the most relaxing vacations. We can't wait to go back. The house was clean, had everything you needed and the photos are very accurate. It is the most private beach I ever had the pleasure of relaxing on. I only saw a few people.
