Gulf Coast Description

 
Florida's Central Gulf Coast extends from Tampa in the north to Naples in the South. Our villas are located in the middle of this region between Sarasota an Port Charlotte. The Sarasota area and north up to Tampa is heavily developed and although there are beautiful white beaches, they are crowded and over looked by large blocks of Condo's and hotels. South of Port Charlotte, the beaches are similar to those in our area, but the costs of rentals, particularly in the Fort Myers and Naples areas are significantly higher and it is an hour further away from the parks and main airports.

Our villas are located in an ideal location - outside of the heavily developed areas, close enough to the airports and parks to make day trips viable, and yet far enough away from Naples to be better value for money - even though you'll be buying a luxury experience. Almost without exception, visitors to the area are stunned by the beauty of the area, the laid back pace of life and the way that the area has been protected from over development. Come visit us - you won't be disappointed!

Englewood View Location Map
Englewood is known as the "Gem of the Sun Coast", "the Heart of the Sun Coast", "a bit of Heaven on Earth", "a place unspoiled by high rises and high prices", and "where the livin is easy". Englewood is a community of communities, set comfortably on an area straddling two counties, harbored by several small islands and magnificent beaches in a tropical setting.  Englewood is a beach community that thrives on its cultural events, nature parks, beaches, fishing, boating, and so much more.

Located on the beautiful Lemon Bay, off the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, Englewood is just a short 85 mile trip away from metropolitan Tampa Bay, 90 miles north of Naples, 50 miles north of Fort Myers, and only 35 miles south of Sarasota.  Englewood is easily accessible from U.S. Route 41 or Interstate 75.

Englewood has 4 beaches on the barrier island of Manasota Key.  Manasota Beach and Blind Pass Beach both offer a variety of amenities.  Manasota Beach boasts 14 acres of gulf front beach and sand dunes with special areas set-aside for sheltered tables, barbecue pits, boardwalks and bathhouse facilities.  Blind Pass Beach is ideal for swimming, fishing and has more than 60 acres of nature trails.  There's a docking area for boaters on the Intra Coastal Waterway.

Englewood Beach offers recreation areas, boardwalk, picnic tables, and concession stands as well as conveniently located nearby restaurants, shops, and nightclubs.  Walking south from Englewood Beach is Stump Pass Beach; a narrow strip of beach that offers anglers a great place to fish.

Manasota KeyView Location Map

Manasota Key is an enchanting barrier island off the coast of Englewood where there are no high-rises, no traffic lights, just a two-lane road and pristine Beaches.  There are low-rise multi-family condos and apartments on the south end of the island.  The north end has private homes on one-acre lots, tucked behind lush tropical foliage.  Resort Accommodations are numerous and several quality Restaurants are nearby and as close as neighboring Venice. 

 
VeniceView Location Map
The area around Venice is rightly famous for its beaches. Beautiful white sand, clear turquoise waters and beautiful natural vegetation all combine to make this one of the most outstanding parts of coastland in the US. The historic and picturesque town of Venice, and the pleasant seaside community of Englewood, are ideal for those looking for a beach holiday in a lovely area combining a good range of attractions and entertainment with a laid-back atmosphere not found in some of the bigger cities. Port Charlotte, just a bit further down the coast, has many great beaches and a pleasant relaxed atmosphere.


Port CharlotteView Location Map
Port Charlotte is a charming town located directly on Charlotte Harbor. This area offers everything from beaches to shopping malls to theatres to fine restaurants.

At 5 to 25 feet above sea level, Charlotte Harbor & the Gulf Islands enjoys a climate characterized as sub-tropic where extremes of temperature in both summer and winter are checked by the tempering influence of the Gulf of Mexico. Prevailing winds are an easterly average of 12 to 18 mph. The mild winter season lasts from January to March.

Numerous upland and aquatic preserve areas are yours to explore. Charlotte Harbor includes one of the world’s largest protected marine estuaries encompassing 270 square miles with 219 miles of natural shoreline. Its confluence of the Peace and Myakka rivers comprises some of the most vibrant coastal areas in the state and a unique network of barrier islands and mangrove forests. In addition to the preserves, natural amenities include miles of beaches; more than 70 parks and preserves; and fishing, paddling and sailing. For athletes and sports fans, the area is home to 16 golf courses and numerous annual sporting events and recreational facilities. Cultural pursuits take the forms of visual arts, theater, dance and music, perfect complements to the area’s spas, dining and nightlife.

Shopping & Dining
Downtown, with its historic buildings and palm tree lined roads, is a great place to shop or just to wander. The range of specialist shops and boutiques are great for buying unusual gifts and souvenirs. If you're looking for bigger shops, Sarasota and Port Charlotte both have large malls and outlet stores.

If you're looking for something to eat, Downtown offers some good snacks during the day. In the evening, head for the restaurants along the beach or along the Tamiami Trail (Route 41). Sharkey's Beach Bar in Venice is a popular place in the evenings, offering great cocktails and music - a perfect place to watch the sun set.

Beaches
Whether you prefer a wild, undeveloped stretch of sand or a beach with every possible amenity, you're certain to find it here. Choose one of several lovely beaches within the Greater Venice area, or venture slightly further afield to one of the keys, the white sandy islands that line the coast. As well as all the usual beach activities and watersports, the area offers beachcombers a chance to search for prehistoric sharks' teeth - more are found here than almost anywhere else in the world.

The main municipal beaches include Caspersen Beach, North Jetty Park, Nokomis Beach and Venice Beach itself. Manasota Key is the largest of the offshore islands, and offers beautiful beaches in a relatively undeveloped location; ideal if you're looking for a break from town.

Port Charlotte and Englewood also have good beaches, Port Charlotte's with many facilities including fishing, tennis, volleyball, pool, snack bar and barbecues. Slightly further south, the island beach of Boca Grande, with its white sand and shady trees and the pretty seaside town behind it is a pleasant place to visit.

Sports & Outdoors
The range of watersports on offer is impressive - the reef just off the shore of Venice Beach is popular with divers, and North Jetty Park is regarded as one of the best surfing beaches on this coast. Sailing is also a popular pursuit. It's also a great area for fishing; in particular, Punto Gorda, near Englewood and Port Charlotte, offers the best tarpon fishing in the world. Like so much of Florida, it's a good place to be if you like golf - you can choose from several reasonably priced courses.
