Overview

Englewood House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This beach house sits directly on the Gulf of Mexico. It has recently been remodeled with all new furnishings, granite counter tops, plasma TV's, new invisible screen on the porch, and many other things. The house may look very unassuming, but the guests that stay there love it.

There is a wonderful roof deck that is large enough to have dinner with your friends and get a view like no other. The back yard has a fire pit so that you can roast marshmallows in the summer or cozy up to it in the winter.

In the back yard lives a tortoise so if you see him, you might want to give him a snack. He tends to like bananas, grapes or any other fruit.

About John Blankenship

I grew up in Iowa and moved to Kansas City when I was a young adult. I graduated from the University of Missouri in Kansas City where I majored in Information Technology. After graduation I got a job at Sprint and started my Masters in Management degree, which was completed the next year. I met my husband at Sprint and we had 3 boys. I left Sprint after 12 years to raise my sons and still reside in KC with them.

John Blankenship purchased this house in 2009

Why John Blankenship chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

My family has owned property in Englewood for over 50 years. We love the area.

What makes this house unique

The biggest benefit to owning the properties is that I can have a great family reunion! We take over the complex and it is a wonderful time every night being together.

Mom's 80th birthday celebration

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at the Cottage, Thanksgiving and August 18th to 26th. The Cottage is Family friendly, warm and inviting. The location to the Gulf of Mexico is right out the back door within few feet past the fire pit, which we enjoyed even in the August summer evening. As the Owner states, the Cottage is very unassuming, but, perfectly decorated and maintained. Gina is extremely accessible to questions and needs, and, while staying we had a few questions, and her caretakers of the property were readily available. I would highly recommend the Cottage to my friends and family. My sister rents the Main House at the same time, and we have some wonderful Family Memories and look forward to future sunsets at the Cottage,
