About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Full Bath Cozy Cottage. Less Than 5 Minutes To The Beaches!

This Cozy Cottage is perfect for those of you that enjoy the warm waters of southwestern Florida coastline. We have a large 20'X23' enclosed screen lanai room with gorgeous pavers, large 7' span fan blades, Flat 55" Smart TV & lots of seating with our elegant cast iron sturdy outdoor furniture. I promise you'll spend most of your time outside in the outdoor screen enclosure! There is direct access to a canal which can accommodate a small fishing boat, canoe or kayak and we provide you with 2 single Kayaks and a man & women bike, complimentary. Within minutes you can be in the open waters of Lemon Bay and the Gulf of Mexico! Excellent for those who enjoy fishing. We also provide a crab trap to snag some blue crabs! If you just prefer laying out or swimming at the beach then just a short 5 minute drive or if you prefer to exercise, a 20 minute bike ride to enjoy Englewood Beach. The local YMCA is walking distance. It offers a pool, game room, basketball court, workouts and many more for a very reasonable fee. This 3 bedroom, 2 full bath home accommodates a family of 6 and we are dog friendly (max. 2 dogs, @ $100/dog). Our back fenced in yard is great to keep the kids in sight and the dog(s) from getting out of sight. Our kitchen is cute and open and if you need to work while vacationing we provide free high speed internet. We have 4 flat screen TVs with HD Satellite service. Our family sun room is a great place to play family games, just have conversation or enjoy the Florida breezes when you keep the sliding glass doors and windows open. You have access to local grocery stores, restaurants, banks, pharmacies and if you enjoy "corn hole" we provide that also. For other nightlife activities, take a short 5 minute ride to the beach. Whatever you desire this cute "Cozy Canal Cottage" can provide.

About Ron Atkinson

We met as childhood sweethearts and have been married for over 45 plus years! During that time we raised six children. We retired and have close ties to the Washington, D.C. area where most of our children are still located.

Ron Atkinson purchased this house in 2014

Why Ron Atkinson chose Englewood South

We found this cute home and fell in love with the area. We have a pet and our fenced in yard is great. We are just minutes to the beach and love that we can get into the canal with our Kayaks right from our backyard. We believe Englewood is a hidden gem along the southwestern Florida coastline.

What makes this house unique

We found that this is a great fishing town and if you're lucky and like crabs then enjoy our crap trap and make some crab cakes! If you own a small boat, you can use our backyard canal access and you'll be in the open waters in just minutes. We really enjoy sitting in our large enclosed screen room with the Florida breezes, Flat screen TV and our very large fan overhead to keep you comfortable! A great place to create family memories.

Very cozy place to stay

  • 4 of 5

It was very cozy indeed, have a very beautiful lanai, where we spend most of our time and a big space outside for kids and pets to ran around. We happen to meet some neighbors and they are friendly but not nosy. If I may suggest that you could provide emergency numbers and addresses of nearest clinics or hospitals for human and their pets that would be great. It would be easier and could save time in emergency cases. Other than that it is a very nice place to stay.

Owner's Response: Glad to hear that our beautiful lanai (screen room) was such a hit! Your suggestion to provide emergency info for humans and pets is an excellent suggestion. That is why under "Rental Instructions & Local Suggestions" from our Hospitality App we have several suggestions of human hospitals as well as veterinary offices & vet. emergency clinics (for after hours, weekends & holidays). We recommend our guests to download the Hospitality App prior to your stay so you will have everything you need regarding our home, local amenities & emergency information. Plus don't forget that we are available to answer any and all questions at anytime! We want our guests stay to be as pleasant as possible.

Very clean with extras items for your use.

  • 3 of 5

Ron was really great at communicating with us. The house was really clean and had plenty of extras around such as beach towels shower towels kitchen needs. When we arrived the ac man was servicing the unit. Though the house stayed around 76 inside no matter the AC setting it wasn’t to bad with the over head fans going.. We can right after Alberto passed through so the grass was high For a day u til Ron had someone cut it. My only major complaint and the reason for the 3 stars was that because it was located on the canal and the storm Palmetto bugs (look up) were active I killed one in the master bedroom every night. This didn’t make my wife a happy camper. I called and had this communicated to Ron and he was getting some one to come out and spray in the next couple days. Other then the palmetto bugs (which are American Brown Cockroaches) we really enjoyed the place. We would stay there again but would maybe look for place away from the canals first just in case of the palmetto bugs.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately these pesky Palmetto bugs made our guests not happy. We get our house sprayed every quarter for all insects (including Palmettos) but because our guests arrived just after a big storm (Alberto), the Palmettos were more active than normal. Fortunately this has never been an issue before but we understand and appreciate the feedback. On a more positive note, we're glad the our home provided the amenities our guests expected and even exceeded.

Very nice large lanai. House very clean, and nice bikes and kayaks provided.

  • 5 of 5

Had super experience. Biked and kayaked daily. Less than 10 minutes from Beach which was also visited daily. Large lanai adds tons of space for relaxing in the evening. House was very clean, and everything in good working order. Could not have been more pleased.

House was very clean and very well stocked!

  • 5 of 5

Great owners to deal with! Would definitely stay here again. House has everything you need!! House sits on a canal that leads out to the boat ramp on placida road. Took my 20' action craft right to the house. You have to go under two bridges but as long as you don't have a tower or T-top you will be fine. The house has a small dock with power. Would definitely stay again!!
