Another terrific vacation!

March 28, 2011

My family and I had another wonderful vacation in this home! It is perfect for all our needs. The home is spacious and inviting, the pool is so relaxing, and it is only 15 minutes to the beach. This home is also just a short drive to Punta Gorda, Boca Grande, Venice and Siesta Key Beach. It is very private and quiet. Plus, there is a rabbit that will greet you every morning as you are having coffee by the pool! Thanks again, Rich and Charlotte, for a great, relaxing stay at your home.

This is the one!

My aunt & I have been coming down here for 4 years. This is our second year at this house. We decided that there's no reason to search every year when everything we need is here, so we're booked for next year too. Plenty of amenities close by, a peaceful, restful location, clean & well maintained house, and beautiful sunny skies. You can't always count on FL for perfect weather every year, but compared to the midwest...it's our week of heaven.

Perfect Place For Us

April 10, 2010

Easy to find and conveniently located to shopping and beaches. We really enjoyed the heated pool and the separated bedroom (for our son). The garage was terrific for storing our bikes and kayaks and the rivers and railtrails were within easy reach of the house. The kitchen was the best equipped we've found in many years; even a croc pot (when we brought our own). The owner is attentive to the renters needs and enjoyment. Five stars!!! Definitely we will be coming here again if we're in this area". Best Regards, Mary Sue and Chip Simmons

Wonderful Vacation Home!

June 17, 2009

My family stayed here the week of June 6-13, 2009. The home is lovely and immaculate. Everything that you need for a vacation is there. The privacy of the back yard and pool area was great. The pool is large and well taken care of. The floor plan of the house was open and very roomy. Having a garage was handy too. Thanks so much, Rich, for letting us stay. We had a terrific time and will be coming back. I would recommend this vacation home to anyone.

GREAT place - this was my 1st ever in renting a house. By the end of the week this house was not a house ...it was a HOME. Very comfortable, conveniently located. Felt secluded - noone on 3 sides of house. I would definitely advice this place for rental.

Most Amazing Honeymoon Spot EVER!!

Review submitted: April 25, 2010 Date of arrival: July 7, 2009

We wanted a romantic spot for our honeymoon, so we rented this house, and it was the most amazing honeymoon ever!
We planned on going to the beach every day, but the house is just so warm and inviting, and with a totally private pool with no neighbors being able to see whats happening in the backyard, we only left the house for 3 of the 7 days we were there. The furniture is very comfortable, the decor is amazing! It's perfect for 2 or for 6. We can't wait to go back!
This is definitely our number one vacation spot!
You really should market this place as a honeymoon oasis, it was perfect!

4/4 to 4/18/2009 Thank you for the quick responses back to us when we had questions.....
Your home made us feel just like home. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed. I think the most important thing for me was how clean it was. This is a great place to stay, close to stores, restaurant's, beach etc. We would not give it a second thought to stay again the the future. Thanks, Linda & Ralph Canzone.

Nice hearing from you.

1/18/2009-absolutely loved staying in your Englewood home.. The rooms were comfortable and made you feel at home .. You were the perfect host and made us feel welcome.. The pool was fantastic even though we were there during the coldest spell Englewood has seen in years .. Thank you for letting us use your home.. We took pictures of your house and I'm sending some to you ..
Thanks again

This was our 2nd time staying at "hideaway". Everything was nice and clean. The house was very comfortable and was centrally located to the beach and groceries and many restaurants. The lanai-pool area is very private...we enjoyed our vacation very much. Richard(the home owner) is very nice and cares that you have a good time. My wife and I highly recommend staying here. We will be back.

02/17/07 Positive WE have been going to Englewood Florida for over 20 years. This is the first time we stayed at a house with a pool, and let me tell you it was great. Ricks home was just what the Doctor call for. The weather was a little cool for a couple days, so we just stayed at the house, swam and grilled.
Thanks again Rich we'll keep in touch

I was down for the month of January - did nothing but work on the house. Painted the outside & the living room -kitchen-& dinning room . Had a fence put up in the back yard-because someone cleared the lot behined me. I had a new air conditioner & heating unit installed. I also stained the pool deck to brighten it up.So the place is shining now!!! Rich

11/27/05 Positive Dear Rich & Charlotte,

Another wonderful vacation was had at your comfortable home. Thank you. I am a vacation rental owner myself (Beverly Shores, Indiana) and this place is just like staying at home. It is spacious and has everything you need. I highly recommend this vacation property. One thing that is so nice is the setup, each bedroom area with its own full bath. I was with my grandson (2 years) and my sister and I was able to keep my grandson quiet and occupied without disturbing anyone else. The pool was perfect. Surroundings are private and the neighborhood quiet. This is a perfect vacation rental property. Thank you again. You are a pleasure to do business with. I hope to be back.

05/29/05 Positive The house was wonderful. We stayed 5/21-5/27/05 and our 2 1/2 year old daughter just loved the pool. It was more then we expected. Only 5 minutes from the walmart supercenter for all of your vacation needs. The Venice jetty was not too far and the dolphins and manatees were so cool. Thanks Rich the house and pool were private and perfect. Our vacation was fantastic and we plan on coming again in the fall/winter.

04/18/04 Positive We have stayed at this house several times, and loved it. The pool was really nice and we loved the seclusion (of both houses being MT on both sides). It is near everything, and we loved "Primetime" restaurant. This house is everything anyone could want and more. Can't say enough good things about our enjoyable times here. Hope to be back soon, and many times thereafter.

02/26/04 Positive Our month spent here was WONDERFUL! The house is not only beautifully decorated, but also warm and very welcoming ---you truly "feel at home".The pool was great to have and always "warm enough" even when the air temp. was cool. We hated to leave, and loved the area so much that we decided to buy a place of our own for the winter months.The only thing that saddens us is now we won't be renting this great house again.Our thanks to Rich and his wife.

Also, the pool was wonderful. In addition, I found the Englewood area to be full of fun activities. My most favorite was the gorgeous Englewood Beach. I can't wait to return in 2005.
