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 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!!

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!
