About the property

The Englewood Central Hideaway Is A Beautiful,Modern, Vacation Home On 1/2 Acre

The Englewood Central Hideaway in southwest Florida is a very private and beautiful vacation home but is very close to many wonderful amenities such as shopping, restaurants and golfing. The Hideaway is a 10 minute drive to the white sands of Manasota Key and Englewood beach on the Gulf of Mexico with the clear, fish-filled waters of Lemon Bay on the way there.

The Englewood Central Hideaway is one level living and sleeps six comfortably with its Tiki master suite, Sea Turtle suite and a plush fold out sofa. All furnishings are new and the spacious, fully outfitted kitchen is very recently remodeled with marble counter tops, laminate wood flooring and all nice stainless appliances.

Step out back on to the beautiful screened in lanai for eating, barbecuing, relaxing, sunbathing and sunsets. Here you will enjoy the sights and sounds of southwest Florida with live oak trees, palm trees and croaking frogs. Next door is a large, wildlife filled pond where you can enjoy watching egrets, storks, anhingas, herons and osprey doing their fishing.

The Englewood Central Hideaway is a private vacation home with all the amenities available to you that you could expect of your own. The Hideaway offers two cable TV's, wifi, washer and dryer, enclosed garage parking, a dishwasher and screened in lanai with ample patio furniture. All linens are furnished and beach towels are provided in addition to bath towels. A small day cooler and two folding beach chairs are ready for your use as well. The modern kitchen is fully outfitted and ready for your culinary flourishes.

The Englewood Central Hideaway neighborhood is quiet, with very little traffic and very friendly people. The Hideaway is also close to the main road in Englewood and all the wonderful dining and shopping it has to offer is very close by. Guests can enjoy numerous nearby opportunities for golf, beaches, biking, hiking, fishing, boat, kayak and stand up paddle board rentals, chartered fishing trips, sports and music events, and more!

Although public transit exists around Englewood, your best bet is a rental car to afford you the freedom to enjoy all the area has to offer. There is fully private driveway and garage parking at the Englewood Central Hideaway house. There are many convenient flights into nearby Sarasota, Punta Gorda and Fort Myers airports. Shuttles are possible to and from each but all have rental car operations as does Englewood.

The Englewood Central Hideaway is a great place to base your vacations, family vacations, reunions, fishing and golf trips or romantic getaways from! The house is private and beautiful, appealing to the nature lover, beach goer, golfer and more. The bottom line is that the Hideaway is just a wonderful place to relax with the convenience of everything you could want all around you. Hours alone could be spent just enjoying relaxing on the lanai watching the bird life.

About Vinny Nuzzo

Growing up in Madison, Wisconsin and spending twenty six years in Missoula, Montana, I am a lover of the outdoors, a forester, small businessman and a traveler. My wife is from Missoula, Montana and our two wonderful children grew up there too. As you could imagine, having spent so much time up north, our travel curiosities always seem to lead us south. My wife and I, and kids at times, have traveled to central America, South America, Mexico and the Caribbean. We enjoy the 'better attitudes that come with southern latitudes,' and we enjoy trying out our Spanish when we can.

Vinny Nuzzo purchased this house in 2014

Why Vinny Nuzzo chose Englewood

I have had family in Florida for over thirty years, the Englewood area in particular, and my wife and I have found the area to be full of very friendly people, it is plain and simply gorgeous, and we love the water that is all around. The wining and dining in Englewood is top notch as well. We have found that Englewood has that village feel, unlike more crowded, built up beach areas. We love the three story rule too, it just looks and feels like a fishing, beach village in Englewood. With more busyness to the north and south of Englewood, we call it the 'sweet spot.' We had always wanted a southern getaway and we feel we couldn't have done better.

What makes this house unique

We have enjoyed hanging out at the Englewood Central Hideaway as much as we have enjoyed exploring the area. It is so private and relaxing, we literally spend hours sometimes enjoying the lanai, sundbathing and bird watching. Not to mention the little lizards and frogs outside are amazingly entertaining as well. The pond next door to the house is so fun to watch as well. Giant birds are constantly fishing, neighborhood kids catch bass out of it and it reflects the light so beautifully as well. We love how very few cars pass by as the house is not on a thoroughfare and the neighbors across the street are wonderfully friendly. My wife and I love enjoying the trees on the property too, from the shady live oak, to the swaying palms--they're a beautiful frame for the sunsets out the back of the lanai. We also love how the living area, kitchen and dining area just flow out to the lanai. The house itself just has a really nice tropical Florida feel, but it does have a modern feel. We hope you will enjoy the house and property as much as we have, we hope to more also!

Comfortable, clean home convenient to several local beaches.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was welcomed with a bottle of sparkling wine and chocolates. The home was very clean and had a well appointed kitchen. Each bedroom had an adjoining bath, which made getting ready for our day's adventure easy. We especially enjoyed the lanai and spent most of our time at the house on the lanai. The living room was very comfortable and My only suggestion would be to have a channel guide for the TV. Although we only spent 1 night indoors, a guide would have been useful. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would come back for another stay, maybe 2 weeks next time!

Englewood visit

I enjoyed staying in this home. It is a wonderful family home; great backyard for children. We appreciated the beach items and the big garage. The home was very clean and Vinny was great to work with. The internet was upgraded when we were there, which helped out. It is a wonderful area, not too far from anything. We took walks everyday around the neighborhoods. My recommendation would be to add some extra comfort to the twin beds and maybe upgrade the antenna in anyone wanted to watch tv. The great internet allowed us to use our netflix.

Good value, very clean and good owner to work with!

  • 4 of 5

The rental home is well taken care of with many updates including flat screen TV, SS Appliances, etc.

While there is no pool there is a great roomy Lanai with a cover and uncovered portion.

Any decent local motel charges far more than Vinny does per night making this a great value with tons of room.

We had a small problem that Vinny resolved very quickly.

The Bottle of wine, some chocolates and ice cold bottled water were a real treat upon arrival.

Great value, Convenient location, Very clean

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed staying in this home so much. The screen outdoor living space was generously sized and very comfortable. The two bedrooms are on opposite sides of the home, so there is plenty of privacy. The garage is spacious. The surprise welcome gift was very appreciated after a very long day of travel. The owner was easy to reach and very helpful with local information. Would definitely recommend this home to travelers.

Englewood Beach is very close to the hideaway
Car: recommended

Englewood Central Hideaway is a mere ten minutes to Manasota Key and Englewood Beach on the Gulf of Mexico and even less time to the clear, fish filled waters of Lemon Bay along the way. Although private, the hideaway is right near McCall road in Englewood, which is the main road offering wonderful dining, shopping and golf opportunities. Wal-Mart is two minutes away and Publix is just five minutes down the road. Nearby Old Englewood has great music events and there is theater and entertainment right on McCall road as well. Those seeking to golf, boat, fish, hike, bike, walk and enjoy the great beaches up and down the key are in luck--it is all within minutes and there are several fine rental operations for boats, kayaks, bikes and stand up paddle boards right on Beach road as you head on to the key. Manasota key is host to four main public beaches, two of which are gorgeous state parks, Stump Pass and Blind Pass. Manasota key also offers great dining and cocktails at places such as the Gulf View, the Lock and Key, Flounders and the White Elephant. Convenience, comfort and privacy can all be had at the Englewood Central Hideaway vacation home.
