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 room with georgous 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 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! Our back fenced in yard is great to keep the kids in sight and the dog 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 3 flat screen TVs with local cable and free HBO. Our family sun room is s 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 night life 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

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.

Cozy, clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely home for the second year. We were thrilled with the property last year, but the owners made even more improvements this year.

The house is clean, well equipped and about 3 blocks from shopping and about a 5 minute drive to the beach.

The large lanai was where we spent much of our time. Our 2 dogs loved the fenced yard.

The property comes equipped with 2 bikes and kayaks.

We loved it so much that we plan to return next year!

Family friendly home/short ride to beaches

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay in Englewood this summer. The house is very spacious with nice size master bedroom and private bathroom. We liked the option of making one of the rooms either a double or two twin size beds. This was nice for our son and his friend. We grilled outside and enjoyed most of our dinner in the large screened in room. There's plenty of seating on the patio and we enjoyed a few movies and card games at night. Our son and his friend took advantage of access to two bikes and only a 10 minute bike ride to the beach. They also enjoyed the kayaks, which we were able to use from the backyard canal. If you want to drive the beach is only a 5 minute drive and public parking with minimal cost. You can pack a lunch or we enjoyed walking across the parking lot to the local restaurants. The outside restaurant area has table tennis, corn-hole and jenga to play. Some afternoon/evenings will also have outside bands. Enjoyable for the whole family and any age. We definitely look forward to visiting again.

Cozy, Clean and Pet Friendly

  • 5 of 5

We are enjoying our stay in this pleasant treasure of a house. It is conveniently located in a quiet neighborhood close to shopping, restaurants and a very short drive to the Gulf.

The house was immaculate when we arrived and we were surprised to see a beautiful lanai that had just been completed. It has a 55 inch Smart TV and comfortable wrought iron furniture.

The house has two bedrooms and baths plus a den/bedroom with a futon. The large laundry room has a generous storage area.

Our dogs have enjoyed the fenced yard which gives them room to run.

The owner has been in touch from the beginning of the rental process and during our stay. He has gone the extra mile on this house. We highly recommend this home and will be returning.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the positive review. We try very hard to make sure that our guests have everything they need for their stay and if they don't we'll try to get whatever is needed. Glad you have enjoyed our large screen lanai and our 55" Smart TV. It's probably going to be the area our guests will use the most!
