About the property

Family time by the ocean......memories for a lifetime.

This immaculate home, located in the quiet community of Englewood, is just minutes away from the beaches, golf, marinas, shopping and nearby Venice Beach (the shark tooth hunting capital).

Our property, Villa de las Palmas, is our vacation dream come true. It has been furnished by a professional interior designer and while looking like a page from a magazine it remains a cozy and welcoming home. I have always said, 'I don't want to vacation anywhere that is not as nice as MY HOME'. I believe we have accomplished that here at Villa de la Palmas.

The very large and private Master on suite has a king bed, separate sitting/reading area, heated pool access, walk-in closet and 5 piece bathroom including a jetted spa tub, double sinks and large Roman walk-in shower.

The other two guest bed room give you maximum privacy being located on the other side of the home with the main bath located between them. This part of the house has it's own, private entrance. One bedroom has a queen bed and double closet. The other bedroom has two twin beds and a walk in closet. All bedrooms have new high quality luxury linens.

The kitchen has beautiful granite counters, stainless steel appliances, a breakfast bar, all new kitchen utensils and small appliances. The kitchen in open to the dining area and greatroom. All rooms have a chic style with a touch of the tropics.

The covered lanai is the perfect place for a quiet breakfast. While having your morning coffee you can look over the glistening salt water heated pool, listen to the sounds of the water fall and enjoy the birds and wild life in the tropical woodland behind you. A very quiet and private backyard.

If this tranquil setting appeals to you, you have found your next 'home away from home'.

We look forward to hearing from you.

About Georgia Hausauer

We were born and raised in Minnesota. Both having lived in warm or tropical climates in our past, we plan to retire here one day.

Not ready to leave the grandbabies in MN, we will vacation here several times a year and share it with you for now.

Georgia Hausauer purchased this house in 2012

Why Georgia Hausauer chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We have been looking for our deam vacation home for several years. From Maui to Mexico, from Dominican Republic to Texas, Florida kept winning our hearts. Englewood's location is perfect. Close to beaches, golf courses, deep sea fishing and cultural events. This home had a beautiful private setting with all the high end finishes we could hope for.

What makes this house unique

The split bedroom floor plan gives you a lot of privacy. The saltwater pool with waterfall is a must and the screened enclosure makes not only the pool area perfect, but also the lanai. As a designer I had to make this home a 'show stopper' with brand new high end furnishing. It's eclectic chic with a touch of Floridian glamore. I think you'll find it beautiful yet comfortable and welcoming.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mango Cafe, Englewood - very good food. Lock 'n Key - wonderful bartenders and fun atmosphere. Flounders is good too. Gulf View Grill - best crab legs ever!

Very nice visit!

  • 5 of 5

The house is very nice and is set up well. Very easy access to local stores and shopping. Short drive to the beaches and the owner is great to deal with. The pool was nice, the water seamed to be colder than we expected but that may have been caused by there being a leak in the system which added lots of cold water to the pool. Owner was working with the local pool company to repair and kept us well informed. Had a great visit with the pool service company so all is well. I would recommend this home for anyone who wants to enjoy the Englewood FL area.

Beautiful FL Home

  • 5 of 5

Anyone who wants to "get away" will enjoy this beautiful home and screened lanai! Sitting out every morning on the lanai, overlooking the beautiful salt water pool, to enjoy coffee and breakfast was a highlight for us. We would recommend this vacation home. Working with Georgia was a pleasure.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

This rental property was a great place to stay. We totally enjoyed the location and setting within the Englewood area.. We were not far from the beaches and could walk into the Historical area for exercise and some meals. The owners were great to deal with too. We will return.

Beautiful old englewood florida

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Georgia's stunning home or 4 weeks and had such a wonderful time. The house is beautifully furnished and equipped with most things you need. West Dearborn - with its cafes, antiques , restaurants and friendly library - Is 15 minutes' walk. There are a number of churches in the area and publix and walgreen are just along at the junction of Indiana and Dearborn. Do not miss the Thursday farmers' market with wonderful fresh food, clothing and jewellery. Lemon bay park -once the heat of the day has gone -is a wonderful walk. We saw gopher tortoises

We loved boca grande and the beach there at gasparilla state park. We also had a fantastic trip on lemon bay with lemon bay tours and saw a huge variety of birds and two families of dolphins. If you like natural beauty and wild life but also nice restaurants with good food, and friendly people,this is definitely the Place. Enjoy it.
