About Neal Borasch

Hello my name is Neal Borasch I am a New Yorker from Manhattan and my family retired here in Port Charlotte Florida years ago. Well our mother use to take us to Englewood beach and we would go for long walks, well one day she saw this beach house and fell in love with it and so did we! It was a fantastic place to grow up and I cherished everyday that we were able to spend it on this beach, it had a huge influence on me because I love nature and I believe that Englewood beach 'our beach' is one of the most beautiful and scenic in the State.

Neal Borasch purchased this apartment in 1979

Why Neal Borasch chose Englewood

After traveling in the Caribbean extensively, I realized that I didn't have to leave the area or country to get that exotic Island feel, it was right here all time. No hassles, no stress and no dealing with travel, traffic or 'other' problems with getting in or around here.

Frank Sinatra said it best ' nice and easy does it, every~time ' Summer Breeze.....

What makes this apartment unique

Hands down we offer more than any other vacation rental, we have recently renovated and updated all of our Apt.'s. We have more amenities, as Verizon DSL Wifi internet service, free local and long distance, 2 cable televisions in each Apt., KING size bed, new appliances, refrigerators, microwaves, toaster, coffee makers, easy access to the washer and dryer, BBQ grill, beds, pillows all linens and towels, beach chairs and umbrella's, we supply almost all your kitchen and bathroom needs.

When we say this Apt. comes completely furnished all you need is your toothbrush, bathing suit and a pitcher of Margarita's, and it's hello Jimmy Buffett life style, I say that we offer everything that a Caribbean island has to offer but only better here in the USA.

I personally see that this Apt. is exceptionally clean and well taken care of.

Your door opens right onto the beach and even from within the Apt.'s the large windows give you just the most spectacular views of the beach and the Gulf of Mexico waters.

Being right on the beach is just worth it, when you open your door every morning and see the Gulf of Mexico waters and every evening watch the sunsets from your beach, words can't really describe it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I tend to be rather demanding in my requirements for accommodations, and I love this studio apartment in Englewood. This is a lovely studio on the beautiful sandy beach. The accommodations were clean and very comfortable - especially the king sized bed. The owners have thought of everything and added little touches that really made the place special. The high speed wifi is a plus. Neal (owner) also is very helpful with local information and activity suggestions. I will definitely stay here again.

Perfect, Right on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here during the week of Christmas. The place was perfect. Neal has provided everything you will need, from beach chairs to bicycles, towels, shampoo, it is all there. The beach is amazing. We spent hours looking for, and finding shark teeth. The water was still warm enough to get in and splash around. We would highly recommend staying here.

Beautiful and Very Clean!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for labor day weekend on a anniversary getaway. It was also the weekend of Hurricane Hermine which was interesting. The beach is literally at your doorstep. Simply amazing and beautiful. Neal is fantastic and so very helpful. This home is one of the cleanest places I have ever seen. We had a great time and enjoyed every moment.....even the hurricane!

Pack Light!

  • 5 of 5

Neal was amazing! We loved it from the beginning. Neal was waiting on us to give us the tour and all the information we needed. He even explained the remote! When we got settled in we quickly realized that we had overpacked. Neal has provided everything you would need for a fabulous vacation. Literally everything was there and stocked including umbrellas and chairs...shampoo...even qtips! Believe me when I say that literally all you need to bring is your swimsuit and clothing. We have been going to the gulf every year since we have been married (15 years) and this was our favorite place. We had an amazing thing happen on our last night...a mamma sea turtle crawled out of the ocean and made her way to the sea wall in Neal's backyard. I have never seen anything like it in my life and probably never will again. Thank you Neal for providing such a lovely place.

Clean as a whistle

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting this unit, but not our first "beach week" on Manasota Key. We stayed in Apartment 1. It is spacious, comfortable and so clean (no musty, wet nor pet smell at all). And it is accurate to say the rental is the most up to date of all of the places we have rented for the past 8 summers: high end appliances and TVs. The King size bed is wonderful. The location is great; we love Stump Pass Park.
