This immaculate home, located in the quiet community of Englewood, is just minutes away from the beaches, golf, marinas, shopping and nearby Venice Beach (the shark tooth hunting capital).
Our property, Villa de las Palmas, is our vacation dream come true. It has been furnished by a professional interior designer and while looking like a page from a magazine it remains a cozy and welcoming home. I have always said, 'I don't want to vacation anywhere that is not as nice as MY HOME'. I believe we have accomplished that here at Villa de la Palmas.
The very large and private Master on suite has a king bed, separate sitting/reading area, heated pool access, walk-in closet and 5 piece bathroom including a jetted spa tub, double sinks and large Roman walk-in shower.
The other two guest bed room give you maximum privacy being located on the other side of the home with the main bath located between them. This part of the house has it's own, private entrance. One bedroom has a queen bed and double closet. The other bedroom has two twin beds and a walk in closet. All bedrooms have new high quality luxury linens.
The kitchen has beautiful granite counters, stainless steel appliances, a breakfast bar, all new kitchen utensils and small appliances. The kitchen in open to the dining area and greatroom. All rooms have a chic style with a touch of the tropics.
The covered lanai is the perfect place for a quiet breakfast. While having your morning coffee you can look over the glistening salt water heated pool, listen to the sounds of the water fall and enjoy the birds and wild life in the tropical woodland behind you. A very quiet and private backyard.
If this tranquil setting appeals to you, you have found your next 'home away from home'.
We look forward to hearing from you.
We were born and raised in Minnesota. Both having lived in warm or tropical climates in our past, we plan to retire here one day.
Not ready to leave the grandbabies in MN, we will vacation here several times a year and share it with you for now.
Georgia Hausauer purchased this house in 2012
We have been looking for our deam vacation home for several years. From Maui to Mexico, from Dominican Republic to Texas, Florida kept winning our hearts. Englewood's location is perfect. Close to beaches, golf courses, deep sea fishing and cultural events. This home had a beautiful private setting with all the high end finishes we could hope for.
The split bedroom floor plan gives you a lot of privacy. The saltwater pool with waterfall is a must and the screened enclosure makes not only the pool area perfect, but also the lanai. As a designer I had to make this home a 'show stopper' with brand new high end furnishing. It's eclectic chic with a touch of Floridian glamore. I think you'll find it beautiful yet comfortable and welcoming.
Mango Cafe, Englewood - very good food. Lock 'n Key - wonderful bartenders and fun atmosphere. Flounders is good too. Gulf View Grill - best crab legs ever!
We stayed in Georgia's stunning home or 4 weeks and had such a wonderful time. The house is beautifully furnished and equipped with most things you need. West Dearborn - with its cafes, antiques , restaurants and friendly library - Is 15 minutes' walk. There are a number of churches in the area and publix and walgreen are just along at the junction of Indiana and Dearborn. Do not miss the Thursday farmers' market with wonderful fresh food, clothing and jewellery. Lemon bay park -once the heat of the day has gone -is a wonderful walk. We saw gopher tortoises
We loved boca grande and the beach there at gasparilla state park. We also had a fantastic trip on lemon bay with lemon bay tours and saw a huge variety of birds and two families of dolphins. If you like natural beauty and wild life but also nice restaurants with good food, and friendly people,this is definitely the Place. Enjoy it.
Beautiful house with all the amenities. Nice pool area.
Very comfortable and a great location close to beaches and
restaurants. We loved the house and would rent it again.
There were several small items that needed to be addressed upon our arrival and the managers handled them promptly. Trash and recycle instructions were not to be found (what is to be recycled and when does the trash go out). We understand the nature of life in Florida, but the pool furniture was moldy and not ready for guests. The plastic lounge chairs were cracked and in need of replacement.
We stayed at Georgia's house in June of 2016. The house has everything you can think of you might need. Kitchen was fully equipped. Bedroom are spacious and beds are amazingly comfortable. Our youngest sons enjoyed the pool every day. It's very conveniently located about 10min to the beaches. I can't think of any flaws or inconveniences.
Our only regret was that we only stayed for a week.
I have rented a few different homes on vrbo for my family vacations, this home was by far our favorite. It's more beautiful in person than in the pictures. It felt very clean. Had everything we needed. The outdoor space is beautiful and comfortable, we spent most of our time out there. The beds are comfortable. The master suite is spacious. We loved the location, 12 minute drive to englewood beach, a beautiful beach. The owner is very nice and easy to work with.
We will definitely go back! My only concern was the private entrance off one of the bedrooms, I personally didn't want to let my toddler sleep in there. But that made for lots of snuggles in the master bedroom, isn't that what vacation is for ;)
We were looking for the perfect Florida vacation home and we found it. This home provided a very clean, comfortable and well equipped place to escape the Canadian winter simply relax and enjoy being a family. The bikes and the pool were well used by the grandchildren. I have recommended this home and the owner to many friends.
A short drive to Venice Beach. Venice is known worldwide as the Shark Tooth hunting capital. Shark teeth are easily found and collected along it's beautiful beaches. Englewood is known for world class Tarpon fishing and marinas are just minutes away.
