About the property

Serenity - Beautifully updated 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom stilt home on a quiet sandy cul-de-sac within a stone's throw of the Gulf of Mexico. Relax on the screened balcony with your morning coffee as you listen to the sound of the surf. Just a short walk to access the Gulf.

The house has all new, stylish and contemporary furnishings both inside and outside. Includes a new gourmet kitchen with granite countertops and all new stainless steel appliances. The living/dining room has a large HD TV with cable and a free WiFi.

Both the master bedroom and one guest room have king-size beds, the third bedroom has 2 twin beds. All 3 bedrooms have their own TV. All 3 bathrooms have been upgraded, the upstairs baths with double-sink vanities and modern showers. The third bathroom is on the ground-floor near the outdoor built-in bar, 2-car garage, and outdoor shower.

This home is located in the canopy section of the island with beautiful old oak trees and palm trees around. This is the perfect area to sit and relax or take part in watersports - boating, swimming, etc. or collect hundreds of shells and fossilized sharks' teeth. The island restaurants are just a few miles down the road. The town of Englewood had plenty of shopping, and is close to Sarasota and Ft Myers.

Great home that's close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this house! The house was very clean and inviting. We really enjoyed the private beach and the easy access to the beach. We would definitely recommend this home!

a short walk to a private beach; secluded, quiet, near the amenities of a city.

  • 5 of 5

thirty years ago we took our two children to manasota key and fell in love with the area. this time our adult children and 4-year old grand-daughter coalesced here from ohio and California. good=-excellent restaurants nearby. we enjoyed the outdoor grill, and especially the kitchen. on our last trip to florida four of us stayed in a place with a "two butt" kitchen: more than two people in the kitchen was an impossibility. this house has a four butt kitchen! the bedroom arrangement allowed six of us both privacy and comfort. I would like to return.

Great Home

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying at this house. It was extremely clean and comfortable. The beds were very comfortable and we appreciated the king size beds! So hard to find a home with more than 1 king size bed.The reason we didn't give the home 5 stars is because we were very disappointed that we couldn't take advantage of the Gnarled Oak community beach. Very washed out and virtually inaccessible! We had to load up and drive to the public beach, which are very nice, but not what we planned to do daily. I would stay here again if the beach situation improves.
