About Robert Chidley
Hi, I am not sure how much of this will be helpful to you to help you decide upon your choice of holiday accommodation but I like to know who I am dealing with so hope this does help! I have been going to the US and Florida in particular for over 35 years, having owned villas there for 18 years after I become fed up with going to hotels and villas which frankly were disappointing with poor locations, cheap/sparse furniture/fittings & inconsistent standards. I was a senior police officer in the UK, retiring as a full time officer in 2014 and will probably do some consultancy from then as well as spend more time in Florida if my two children who are still at school allow me to as they get very jealous if they can't go too!
Why Robert Chidley chose Englewood
Having been Orlando/Kissimmee based for many years just venturing to either coast for odd days, it became clear that the best bits of the gulf coast were virtually unknown to many tourists. Having looked from Sarasota to Naples this area around Englewood has lots to offer but mainly it is well serviced yet remains so laid back that even in the busy winter season it never feels like a rat race ! The weather is that touch warmer in the winter and the cooling breezes from the Gulf tend to give that soothing edge to the summer heat elsewhere. Anything to do with water is catered for somewhere nearby, golf and other activities in abundance and the normal Florida delights of Malls etc near by just make this a wonderful place to be.
What makes this Villa unique
Englewood Isles is probably one of the most desirable locations here with is waterways and dock punctuating the well laid out community of mainly detached villas. It is but minutes from the wonderful beaches of Manasota Key and has easy access to Venice and Port Charlotte nearby. There are numerous shops and restaurants (many independents as well as the more known chains). Our villa is well positioned and offers a great base to explore the many delights of the area or to just relax and use the pool, deck and really nice layout of the villa !

Fantastic villa with a great pool in an even better location
Five minutes from the beach (manasota) in easy reach of good restaurants and shops if that's what floats your boat
Entertainment a plenty and only a short drive with plenty of national parks about
Most relaxing vacation we've ever had so much so my wife cried when we left this morning
Would defiantly return
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your views about our villa. I am delighted that we managed to add that extra magic to your stay in this wonderful area.
kind regards Robert
Lovely house, great location
Our vacation house in Englewood was everything we hoped for. The house is laid out so the Master is on one side of the house with the two remaining bedrooms on the other side, giving everyone some much needed privacy. The pool area was great, with plenty of room for outdoor meals and entertaining, plus the pool was heated, so it was always comfortable. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood only a few minutes from the towns of Venice and Englewood and Manisota Key, so there is plenty of shopping and restaurants nearby as well as lots of recreational activities.
Perfect and Great Value
The villa is located in a quiet neighbourhood where other properties are owner occupied and not vacation villas. Just 5 minutes from extensive beaches which are not busy even in the middle of the summer. The villa was clean, very well appointed with a large clean pool. We easily managed to drive to The Everglades one day and Clearwater/St Pete's another. There are the usual 'chain' restaurants nearby, although I recommend local restaurants such as Zekes and Lock n Key. Overall, the villa was excellent and great value for money. I couldn't fault it.
Chris thanks for taking the time to submit your review and kind comments about our villa which we try hard to be amongst the best. I think you may get the prize for travelling the most North and South in your time there but there are lots of options. Must try Zekes next time out ! Robert
This is the ideal location for those not wanting the hustle and bustle of the Orlando area attractions. The villa was ideally situated to take advantage of the gulf coast beaches and wildlife. Those wanting more adventure can hire jet skis, kayak, boat and bike locally.
The villa and pool were clean and well laid out in a beautiful area. We had a great time and made extensive use of the pool to cool down in the evening. The owner was very helpful and we would recommend this place to anyone.
Thank you for your kind comments and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay at our villa. We do try to make the process and the whole experience smooth and enjoyable !
