About the area

Englewood, including the Lemon Bay area and Manasota Key, is a relaxing haven along the Gulf of Mexico between the busy metropolitan centers of Tampa and Fort Myers. Miles of beautiful white sand beach and sparkling water are the setting for a myriad of activities for swimming, boating and fishing to sunbathing and simply walking along the shore. Many golf courses, as well as parks and recreational facilities of all types, are located in and around Englewood. Historic Dearborn Street has become a mecca for artisans who practice and display their craftwork in shops and at numerous weekend festivals. The Lemon Bay Playhouse offers community productions while Venice and Sarasota, a short drive away; provide entertainment opportunities to satisfy all tastes. Local restaurants feature "early bird" menus to make dining out convenient and affordable for all. However, even the most discriminating taste can be satisfied by a wide variety of dining establishments and unique café in and around Englewood.

Watching to the sunrise over the bay and sunset over the gulf! Truly unique! Comfortable home,large screened porch overlooking the bay,private beach, and dock! Everything about the house made a perfect vacation!

“Nice, quiet spot for a relaxing vacation”

This was our first visit to Manasota Key/Englewood and we stayed here for a week over winter holiday. It was one of only a few pet-friendly rentals available in the area. The house is roomy and well maintained with a great view of Manasota Bay through the mangroves out back from the large screened porch and cozy living room with large sliding glass doors. Although the property has direct access to the bay, the main downside is that there's no direct walking access to the beach from the house (all the properties lining the west side of the road have "no trespassing" signs). The public parking lot at Manasota Key Beach is about a mile to the north and Blind Pass park is about 2 miles to the south and these are the nearest beach access points.

“Vacation in paradise!”

Loved, loved, loved it! The house feels like a tree house. It's on stilts so the second level is at the top of the trees. Very secluded and private. The large screened porch was a blessing as the mosquito's can be a nuisance. The private beach access was a delight and very private. Far from the public beaches. The views of Lemon Bay can be observed from every window. The exterior could use some TLC but the interior was extrememly clean and comfortable. The waterways were wonderfull and very scenic. The local entertainment was fun. The sunsets were to die for. We enjoyed our vacation and plan to return again soon.
