About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Our very spacious (over 1,700 s.f.) 3 bedroom home sleeps 6 comfortably and is located in the wonderful town of Englewood, Florida on the Gulf Coast just minutes to Venice and 1 1/4 hours to Tampa. We are in Overbrook Gardens, near Manasota Key Beach. We will offer a significant discount on stays 4 months or longer.

The house has three bedrooms, two full baths, a screened lanai with built in spa and fans. The kitchen is completely equipped with built in microwave and dishwasher and space for two to eat at the counter. In the laundry room (separate) there is a washer and dryer. I have many more photos that I can email including ones of all of the bedrooms, the lanai and spa and all of the grounds.

There are lovely fruit trees in the back yard which bear plentiful fruit including Florida’s fabulous Honey Bells! As an added bonus to pet owners (we do take pets with a deposit), the back yard is fully fenced and there are two spacious dog kennels on one side of the yard out of site and under shade trees.

Within 1 1/2 mile walk (through a quiet neighborhood) is beautiful Manasota Key Beach. See the web site for great pictures, noted as one of the best beaches in the country.

Our Englewood vacation beach house is very roomy. The master bedroom is comfortably furnished and has a queen-size bed (sleeps two) with private full bath (full tub and shower) and spacious walk in closet. The second bedroom can also double as an office and has a twin beds with trundle (sleeps two) and a desk/office area. Located in this room is the modem and wireless router for high speed wireless internet access throughout the property. The third bedroom has a queen sized bed. All bedrooms have good-sized closets and both bathrooms are full size and have showers.

There is a full sized dining room with a table that comfortably seats 6-8 and the kitchen counter has stools to seat two. The living area is L-shaped and very large allowing a separate area for TV viewing with couch and chairs and a separate area with a couch and table, great for reading or conversation. The living rooms, dining room and kitchen have high ceilings, adding to the spacious feel. The living room has flat screen tv, dvd player and a cd player. There are other tvs in the bedrooms.

The home is fully and comfortably furnished, has a well equipped kitchen, and the screened-in lanai has table and chairs and ceiling fans along with the fantastic built in spa. There are beach chairs, beach towels and a charcoal grill; everything you need for a relaxing vacation or winter respite! Just bring your bathing suit!

Wonderful Home - Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

This home is located in Overbrook Gardens. It's about a five minute drive to beautiful Manasota Key Beach. It is located on a side road off of the main Overbrook Road. It is in a very quiet neighborhood and a peceful location. This is a very well-maintained home. The back yard is spacious, and the hot tub in the large lanai is terrific. The yard gets plenty of sunshine during the day. The house is fully stocked with all conveniences. This is a split-bedroom home. The master bedroom is large. It has a queen bed and a large walk-in closet and a full bathroom. There is a queen bed in the second bedroom and a trundle bed in the third. Another full bathroom is located on that side of the house. This is a pet friendly rental. My lab enjoyed the back yard very much. I spent two months here and had an absolutely wonderful time.

lovely home

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for all of may and loved the size and location of the house. Really enjoyed the lanai daily and the pictures do not do the house justice. Very large with split bedrooms lots of privacy and our 2 dogs felt at home immediately. Talked to owner quite a few times and she was always gracious and helped with any problems that arose. Drove to Manasota beach every chance we got and it's about a 5 minute drive. If hadn't bought a house while we were there would definitely rent again.
