Pleasant, Quiet Neighborhood 1 Block From Royal Palm Marina Away from Busy Roads

These beautifully appointed Cottages, Mango Cottage and Guava Cottage, located in the artists' district of Olde Englewood, are 2 minutes' drive from the famous conservation area of Dearborn Street. The location of these cottages is unique in that, while being walking distance from Dearborn Street and Lemon Bay Park, it is beautifully quiet and peaceful, away from busy, noisy roads.

There are many things to do in the area for recreation and relaxation including boating, fishing, golf, shopping, live music and great restaurants. Sarasota is 45 minutes away, Orlando, 3 hours away and Fort Myers, 1 hour away.

The Cottages have everything you will need for an enjoyable and comfortable stay. There is a beautiful large, fenced yard with many plants and trees which is secluded for relaxing and barbecuing on your private decks. The decks are accessed directly from the Cottages so you can go outside to enjoy the incredible Florida mornings, sitting drinking a cup of coffee and reading the morning paper. And in the evenings, you can enjoy sitting by the fire pit which is located in an additional seating area in the center of the yard.

The kitchens are fully fitted with a stove, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, pots & pans and dishes, glasses, cups,silverware and cooking utensils and the dining areas each have a 42-inch round table with four chairs and comfy seat covers.

Great place to stay in Englewood Florida

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in our Mango cottage in Englewood. Very close to excellent restaurants and entertainment. Englewood downtown was a five minute drive away and a fun place to visit. On Thursdays they have a wonderful farmers market that offers a large variety of produce, fresh fish and great pastries. Our cottage was well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. Great back deck with lots of chairs and tables. Great place to sit and enjoy to the back yard. At the end of the street was a excellent view of the sun setting behind Manasota Key. Owner called a couple of times during our stay to make sure everything was fine.We will definitely try to stay there next time we go to Englewood. Loved the place.

Total comfort and relaxation.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Guava Cottage in Englewood. The furnishings were cozy and comfortable. Loved the closeness of restaurants, entertainment, water, parks and much more. We utilized the front and back decks and enjoyed a fire in the common area. Highly recommend.

A lovely experience!

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying in Mango Cottage for a month! The front and back decks were pretty places to sit and read. The yard is landscaped beautifully. It's a short walk to Lemon Bay Park, and just two blocks to Snooks restaurant on Lemon Bay. The owners have decorated charmingly with quality items. I had a very good time and would highly recommend this lovely place to everyone!

Old Florida

  • 5 of 5

The house was a perfect size for a couple. The yard was like a secluded paradise. It was an easy stroll to shops and restaurants of Olde Englewood/Dearborn Street. The owners were helpful with information on the local scene. We have since purchased a vacation home in Englewood but when we head there we often take s drive by to revisit a great memory!

Lovely vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We booked our March rental based on the many positive reviews. We were not disappointed. We appreciated the quality, comfort and cleanness of the interior, as well as the lush landscaping outdoors. We will truly consider visiting again.

The two Cottages are located in an attractive, quiet area, away from busy and noisy roads, that is typically 'Old Florida' on the lovely Gulf Coast.

In addition, there is the Lemon Bay Playhouse which has a season of plays and musical entertainment.
