We had a great time exploring Englewood beaches and found Doane's house to be a perfect base camp.

  • 5 of 5

Doane has thought of every possible need and keeps the property looking fresh and modern. We look forward to visiting again very soon.

Clean, well kept

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The rental was clean. The surroundings were very quiet but still close enough to beaches, restaurants and stores. I would highly recommend and would consider renting again.

Perfect Little Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth time renting this perfect little getaway... you are provided all the comforts of home away from home! Love the beautiful wood flooring - nice upgrade!! My wife and I enjoyed the peacefulness this little gem offers... backyard is so serene and relaxing. You can sit on the swing and just get lost in paradise. Blind Pass is our favorite spot. Beautiful beach to find seashells. Something new we experienced during this visit was Lemon Bay Dolphin Tours. Definitely looking forward to our next visit to what we consider to be our perfect home away from home. Definitely recommended this rental property!!!

Immaculate!!

  • 5 of 5

Great little home with everything you could possibly need, is there!! There was that "Wow" factor when you walked into the kitchen, living room and bedroom area. That first room you walk into is a cool area just to hangout and kick your feet up. I brought my dogs with me and they loved the backyard. It was fenced so they just did their thing. The house is actually close to the beach which I liked. And the fact that he has everything there for you to use, is a huge plus. I'm definitely going back soon and staying longer

Beautiful beaches with amazing sunsets, dolphin and manatee sightings. Shells and sharks teeth are plentiful. There are secluded stretches of beach to enjoy. Stump Pass and Blind Pass are two I highly recommend visiting.

Gasparilla Island State Park, located near Boca Grande, features an incredible Lighthouse with museum and gorgeous beaches.
