About Marie and Jay Holland

Jay and I have been visiting the area for years, thanks to an Aunt who discovered the beautiful southwest coast of Florida many years ago. We love the privacy and flexibility the house affords us that we can extend to our guests.

Marie and Jay Holland purchased this house in 2012

Why Marie and Jay Holland chose Englewood

The house offers direct beach access with a private deeded beach right on the Gulf. It is newer construction and high enough to see far and wide. We hope you love it as much as we do!

Great place for a relaxing and beautiful vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was the best vacation we have enjoyed in years! And we have had a lot of excellent vacations. The weather was perfect, the sunsets were spectacular, and we reall enjoyed the relaxed pace on beaches that were never crowded. We love the house and the different views at the different levels. We both agreed that your place is the best place on the beach! We hope to continue to rent it for years to come, if you will have us!

Thanks so much for creating such a beautiful place to relax.

Even better than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean, comfortable and spacious with an amazing view. It is so close to the water and is convenient with kids going in and out of the house. If you collect shells or sharks teeth this is the house for you. You can scoop up shells by the bucketful. We appreciated the paper towels, toilet paper, toiletries, linens, bowl of goodies on the table and so many other extras that are not provided in other houses we've rented. The beds were very comfortable and the view from the master bedroom was breathtaking! I have dozens of photos to prove it! Parking is easy and the neighborhood is quiet. It's close to Don Pedro Island which is a must see. The 3 full baths were so nice to have with 4 adults and 3 children.

A little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have been to this property numerous times, and it never disappoints! The view is spectacular, especially when taking advantage of the hurricane doors that open up the entire back of the house. Our favorite time of the day is in the morning just after we woke up. We'd sit on one of the two decks to take in the morning sun, the salty air, the crash of the waves, and most days the frolicking of dolphins not too far from shore. The ocean is truly your backyard here. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook for the week, and we loved grilling out a few days as well. The space is large and comfortable, and it's decorated to feel like a home away from home. The management team was more than accommodating with the couple requests we had, such as refilling the propane gas tank for the grill. We hope to come back year after year, carrying on the tradition with our children in the future. We believe this this property is truly a treasure and would highly recommend it to anyone!

Beautiful experience!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house with 3 grandchildren and their parents. Plenty of room, very updated and the view is beautiful. Sunsets were different every night! The kids loved it and the adults could watch the kids from the big porch. Plenty of shade provided by the porch which was needed. I would go back in a heartbeat!

Beautiful Views! Great Home.....

  • 4 of 5

WOWZA! Amazing view from living room, master br and decks! We rented side "A', the larger side and had a wonderful time. The home is well furnished, your clothes and food is all that is needed here. The owners were quick to reply on initial inquiry and they were great to deal with. The only down side we experienced with the property itself was the need to be creative parking with the other side renters. The photo shows plenty, however upon arrival the vegetation has encroached the parking area a lot compared to the photo. Yes, there are a lot of stairs, my 87 year old aunt climbed them many times, that is not a reason to degrade a review, you know this going into the rental. We were taken aside as you feel the house shaking with neighbors movement and vice versa, but expect this when sharing a structure on stilts with another group of renters. There were water toys, beach chairs and other goodies to be used. We did use the grill, and cooked every day instead of going out to eat to maximize time spent here. AS FAR AS THE PROPERTY, AND THE OWNERS, we were not disappointed at all! The bad, the property management company, failed to return our security deposit within 30 days after departure per the lease agreement. It took many calls to them, and speaking with multiple employees of the company to get reimbursed our security deposit. after excuse after excuse and non returned calls, it took 6 weeks to receive our security deposit back from the company. When they called me to tell me it was finally mailed out, I asked them to overnight it UPS red as it was their fault for non reimbursement in a timely manner, the never returned my call and it arrived 5 business days later. The management company uses your credit card for the deposit, but does not refund your card, they mail a check. The other down side, no fault of the property owner is the cleaning company. We did not show up with white gloves, as we live on a farm and live with dust. The cleaners did not clean their best for the owners. When you walk in this beautiful home, you see from one end to the other, the floors under the couch were not touched. The couch sits off floor so no matter where you sit you see under couch and the dirt that wasn't cleaned. We really liked the property, and the email and phone contact we had with the owners. However, the companies that the owners contracted to take care of matters for them, were sub par. Thank you for offering a beautiful property to vacation in.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay and took advantage of all that beach living has to offer. Thank you for bringing these issues to our attention. There is no excuse for late refunds, even one time is too many. They should know better and they will be put on notice that this is unacceptable. The shrubbery grows like weeds during rainy season and it is all being trimmed way back this week. We will also assign parking so there is no question where to park. Yes, our house is a stable elevated beach home, and it's height allows the awesome views so revered by our guests. We appreciate your bringing these issues to our attention...it is through your feedback that we can take action. Our contact info is on our listing and we hope our guests will call, text, or email us immediately if they are less than 100% satisfied so that we can rectify the situation.

A Beautiful Beach Front Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at this property during the first week of May. The property is literally right on the beach so you can either get out to take a walk along the beach or just sit on the wood deck to enjoy the ocean view. My best part of the day was to have several cups of coffee on the deck while enjoying ocean breeze, the waves and the view early in the morning. We grilled and had dinners on the deck almost every day. The house's interior is open and nicely decorated. The kitchen is fully equipped with almost everything you need to prepare a meal. The master bedroom upstairs also has a private deck where you want to get away from everything and have the view, the wave and breeze for your yourself. The only issue with the property is you must climb up the stairs from the ground to the first floor. Otherwise, we loved to spend time here and may be back with a larger group for the entire house (A & B).
