Private bayfront home on 1.2 acres, 3 bedrooms/2 baths, sleeps 6 persons total
Englewood was our home away from home vacation destination for 20 years with our then young family. The empty nest stage occurred and we decided to leave Pennsylvania behind to move south. We now call Florida home.
Cheryl purchased this House in 2012
Why Cheryl chose Englewood
There's just something about being on the water. After moving to southwest Florida, we found the perfect vacation home in a fantastic location directly on Lemon Bay, the Inter Coastal Waterway. It has all of the elements that we look for when booking a vacation rental.
What makes this House unique
If you like vacationing right on the water and are looking for a comfortable spacious home to get away from it all and relax, this is it. We hope that you too will discover and appreciate the friendly community, the unspoiled and uncrowded miles of gulf coast beaches, recreational opportunities both on the water and on the golf course, abundant wildlife and beautiful sunsets that first brought us here and kept us coming back.
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
Wonderful house in a beautiful location, great fishing for me from the dock, and a fantastic pool for Jackie. Cheryl and Derk were kindness itself, generous and responsive to requests without being intrusive in any way. Ideal hosts!
I caught snook, sea trout and sheepshead from the dock, and even managed to hook though not land several early morning tarpon.
All in all we had a brilliant holiday and will be back first chance we get.

This property on Lemon Bay is beautiful. The home is spacious, clean, close to beaches & restaurants
Our family of 6 adults stayed in this beautiful home in Engelwood. This home is located in a very nice area, surrounded by beautiful homes. This property is large, spacious and very well maintained. The private dock and the location on the bay was quite nice. We saw the large turtle that lives on the property and the eagle would visit daily. We enjoyed Boca Grande beach, Siesta Key beach, Engelwood beach and other local beaches. Local restaurants that were our favorite were the Lock and Key and the SandBar Tiki & Grill. A grill is also provided and our family enjoyed grilling out a couple nights also. There's a "where are you visiting from" tree on the property that has all the states/countries of guests that have stayed in this lovely home. We were the first from Minnesota to stay in this property and very fun to see that on the tree :-). The pool area is large & clean. Many pool & beach towels are provided. Beach chairs and umbrellas are also available for use. Cheryl & Derk are easy to communicate with. We really enjoyed our vacation in their beautiful home & would highly recommend this property to stay in for your vacation...you will not be disappointed!
Thanks Cheryl & Derk!

Thanks so much Mary Jo! We're thrilled that your vacation in Englewood and your stay at Bayshore met or exceeded your expectations. We look forward to hosting your family again in the future. Til then........Derk & Cheryl
Our family of six absolutely loved our stay at this beautiful home. Clean, open, spacious, well maintained, incredibly furnished. The pool is fantastic. We loved the attention to the small details that made it feel like we were in our actual home. The owners are kind, gracious people. The proximity to several beautiful beaches was incredible. We can't wait to schedule a return visit to this slice of paradise.
Thank you very much for your review! So glad that you thoroughly enjoyed the property and had a great family vacation. We look forward to your return.
Great villa, great setting
Fabulous villa in a great location and very comfortable. Loved the large pool and the dock out into Lemon Bay. Saw dolphins and manatee from the dock and on one of the kayak trips we took in the kayaks that came with the villa saw an alligator just along from our villa! The Bald Eagles came every day and of course plenty of Ospreys. Well placed for the many beaches. No shade around the pool but the beach chairs under the trees were a good alternative.
We so glad that you enjoyed your stay at our villa! Just to clarify, the alligator was actually seen in the bay, not on land. :) Because the properties are so large in our neighborhood there is always an abundance of FL wildlife to be observed.
