Guestbook comments from the manager

We fell in love with this place as soon as we crossed the bridge! We had a memorable week filled with breathtaking sunsets, lots of swimming and loads of sharksteeth. It was so nice having family-time all under one roof! We are sure to return! Family traveled all the way here from New York and Michigan.

Excellent house with outstanding location

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful week in this amazing house right on the beach. Saw dolphins every day! Interesting morning walks along the beach watching the volunteers look after the turtle nests, even got to see when they released some baby turtles in the ocean. Tons of shells on the beach and also found lots of shark teeth.

The house is very well equipped with everything you could ask for. From beach towels to everything we needed in the kitchen. Loved the large dining area having dinner while watching the sunset. Plenty of space for everyone, the house is so big it never feels crowded.

Some restaurants within walking distance, although we liked the house and patio too much to leave for long dinners outside the house. Instead enjoyed the bbq on the patio, Publix and Walmart is just a short drive away. Superb laundry machine and dryer, no need to bring lots of packing.

Such luxary stepping out to the private beach and the water was great. Really hope to come back for another vacation!

Awesome Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our families came together for vacation at this wonderful home -- best vacation ever!! The house is right on the gulf where the kids enjoyed playing in the crystal clear water, paddle boarding, shark took hunting. Sunsets were gorgeous every night! We steamed crabs on the grill which had a side burner, had a shrimp boil and enjoyed the spacious living quarters and loved eating in the dining room overlooking the gulf. There were rooms we never used as the place is so big! Did not turn on the TVs even once! We would not hesitate to return here next year and the year after . . . . Best vacation ever!

Visiting for the second year running probably speaks volumes about how much we like this place, but just in case it doesn't read on. Our group consists of 10 family members aged from 9 to 65. Perfectly located right on one of the most beautiful the beaches, this charismatic house really is a home from home. Fully laden with everything you could possibly need for a magnificent holiday. Even being there during a passing hurricane couldn't spoil our stay! From collecting sharks teeth on the beach, watching pelicans fishing in the surf, watching dolphins play to visiting some the local bars & restaurants. Spacious, Well maintained, fully air conditioned, large rear deck area complete with outside shower, BBQ area that leads straight onto the beach, large family sized kitchen complete with everything needed to cook & dine, well appointed large bedrooms, the list just goes on... I really struggle to find any negative things to say about Englewood and in particular this property. Only 1 downside and thats having to leave and come back home!

Incredible home, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from 2 of the best weeks of our lives! We stayed as 2 families-4 adults and 5 children (10-16) and every single one of us has been totally enchanted! First of all the house is so spacious and well equipped; from every single room there is a breath taking gulf view. The outdoor deck and grill area is so big that all 9 of us sat there to eat. Imagine just walking from the beach, taking an outdoor shower, drying in the sun, then drinking a nice cold beer! The beach equipment was marvellous and made our holiday -fishing, kayaking, sieving for shark's teeth, body boards, frisbee, baseball, soccer .... Our kids didn't even switch the tv on! There are 5(!!!!!!!) indoor living areas so everyone can chill out. The furniture, both indoors and outdoors, is very comfortable and homely and every bed was luxurious. We had every American home comfort! Nature lovers will be so enthralled here because during May-October it is turtle season and the Turtle Patrol come right outside each morning; we joined them and saw the hatchlings! There were nests right next to the patio! We saw so many Dolphins, pelicans swooping, a huge mantaray, massive shoals of fish, a huge loggerhead turtle at midnight, hatchlings at sunrise, superb sunsets, hundreds of shark teeth, a meteor shower, awesome thunderstorms, a full rainbow and even the milky way - the list goes on! There are a few bars and restaurants within walking distance, boat rentals up the road, a shopping mall close by and a good choice of supermarkets. The beach is private but people wander past and look on in envy!

Teenage Top Tip - when it's stormy go in the surf on the body boards with the go pro and post it online to annoy your friends back home. The wi fi is super fast even with 9 people using it.

Kiddie Top Tip - get up early to go on turtle patrol

Adult Top Tip - hire a boat and navigate to Rum Bay Restaurant

Had a great two weeks at this fabulous beachside house. It was all you could wish for and more. It has lots of character and is very spacious. The beach is beautiful with the warmest sea we've ever experienced and the sunsets are postcard beautiful. If you like wildlife it doesn't disappoint...Dolphins, Manatees, Ospreys, Pelicans and much much more. Nearby restaurants are superb and we thoroughly enjoyed Landy's.

We cannot fault this gorgeous house and we'd definitely recommend a visit for a relaxing memorable holiday/vacation.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything we thought it would be and more. You can sit on the back patio and actually be at the beach without the sand. :) Plenty of room for you to have quiet time too! The location was also great as it was very, very close to restaurants. Just a great place to stay!
