Waterfront & Ground-Floor Home w/Free WiFi, Dock, Private Pool, and Central A/C

Visiting Englewood? Then this private, budget-friendly, and older Florida shack type of home may be the retreat you're looking for! Here, you and your family will enjoy marvelous water and nature views and a private outdoor swimming pool. Upon entering, you'll first come across the living room. This space comes equipped with basic furniture, however, it's a good place to hang out with your family and share entertaining conversations or plan your next moves. Continue your tour and you'll find a Florida room with a four-person dining table and a ceiling fan; from here, you'll have great pool and water views. Owners call this view "tropical Wisconsin". Looking across the creek one sees nothing but trees. You never know when a fish will jump or an egret will fly by.

As you continue, you'll encounter the kitchen, dining area, and a small family room. The kitchen features basic appliances and cookware to prepare delicious meals and snacks for the group. The dining table seats four as well, and the family room has a ceiling fan, flatscreen TV, a sofa, and an armchair. This convenient home also boasts a laundry room with a washer/dryer combo, enough counter space, and a sink. Both bedrooms come equipped with ensuite bathrooms (one with a walk-in shower and the other with a tub/shower combo) and ceiling fans. The main bedroom also features a small, but convenient desk for remote work. The house includes a screened-in fiberglass pool and also sits on a creek for your boating and fishing needs.

What's nearby:
This classic home features a prime location in a quiet neighborhood with a creek behind it and near Manasota Key beach and restaurants. This is also a great location for kayaking, boating, and fishing. You'll be conveniently close to Lemon Bay (five miles) and the Gulf of Mexico and the beaches are a short drive away.

The house was very close to all of the beaches. The neighborhood was peaceful. The pool was extremely relaxing.

We enjoyed our long weekend with friends in this home. The pool was great; albeit a bit chilly despite paying for it to be heated. You will love the open floor plan and space. You will need to buy almost all supplies, as not much is in the cupboards. This was my first VRBO where we had to buy everything from salt and pepper to laundry soap to toilet paper. We liked the location as it took less than 10 minutes to get to the beach.
Manager response:
Hi Heather! Thanks for sharing your feedback with us. While the kitchen is stocked with all the cookware and utensils needed to prepare meals, food and other pantry items like coffee and tea are not typically stocked in the home. We encourage guests to plan ahead if they anticipate needing additional items during their stay. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

The home was clean but very basic and outdated. The bedrooms were spacious and we liked the layout of the house. It would have been nice if there was a king-size bed in the master. The beds were uncomfortable and the pull-out sofa was unusable. Luckily there was a blow-up bed that we put in the second bedroom so our kids could each have their own bed. The best part of the house was the location. We loved fishing in the creek and enjoyed the privacy of the backyard. We rented a boat and were able to explore the islands. The pool was cute and clean but we didn’t really use it. I would rent here again because it was a great price for the location, but I wished they would make some updates.

The home is very peaceful on the river, and the pool was delightful! Everything was very clean and comfortable, with everything we needed for a great stay.

Super clean house beautiful view the only thing if you are staying ask for the heater for the pool cause the water is cold 😂

The layout of the house was great and we loved the view and pool. The only problem we had was the home is advertised for six people but there was nowhere in the house for six people to sit together. There was not a space in the home with seating for more than four. Typically when you rent a home in a beach town for a beach vacation The home comes with basic necessities like a cooler and beach chairs. Beach towels were included but only five were provided not six. Also I’m not really sure why they thought giving us one extra trash bag for a week stay with a family of six was sufficient. It seemed like the house was recently purchased and the bare minimum was done to rent it out.

Lots is space. Everything is outdated and one of the bathrooms shower was broken so not really two useable showers just one.
