About Pat Nevius and Lewis Stogner

We have recently to retired to Florida, as we love the warmth and activities of the area. Boating and fishing with our kids when they were young left us wanting to enjoy that lifestyle forever. Now we are living that dream! Come join us for all that Englewood has to offer!

Pat Nevius and Lewis Stogner purchased this house in 2014

Why Pat Nevius and Lewis Stogner chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

The floor to ceiling windows that overlook the waterway grabbed us when we first saw this home... sitting in the sunny windows or out on the terrace watching the birds, manatee and dolphin.... what could be better?

What makes this house unique

This house is just three miles from Manasota Beach, the community is friendly and well maintained, and everything you could want is just minutes away.

This was a wonderful rental home on the canal and perfect for our family of five. It was nicely updated and very clean. We liked the location; great if visiting either Englewood or Venice beaches, shopping and/or dining. Great wildlife viewing on canal from tiled patio, which gets nice afternoon and evening shade. We had a fantastic stay and the owner was attentive to our needs, even during the visit! Thank you!

Owner's Response: The terrace is a nice place to grill and eat outdoors. We often see and hear owls at dusk while enjoying an evening meal out there. So glad to have other folks enjoy it as much as we do!

Very clean and peaceful property

  • 5 of 5

We chose this home because it was 15 minutes away from my Mothers home. The home had everything we needed and was very clean, well organized and equipped with everything we needed for our stay. It was a short drive to the beach and really anything you wanted to see in Florida. My son and daughter-in-law took our grandson to Disney World for the day and it worked out great. We chose to stay back and relax and visited the most beautiful beach in the United States. Which I had no idea it was until one of the nice neighbors told me about this wonderful place while visiting the pool. It was a short drive to Siesta Key and the beach is absolutely beautiful and perfect for children. I never knew this place existed and especially didn't realize it was voted the #1 beach in the US as well as the #3 beach in the world. If you love beaches and quaint towns, I would highly recommend a visit to Siesta Key. The pool was just one house over and well maintained, even though we spent much of our days visiting area beaches which all are close. My mother was unhappy we weren't staying with her but once she saw the home she realized there was more room for the kids at this location and she didn't have to worry about waiting on us. My family enjoyed watching the Manatee's in the canal and especially liked feeding the fish and fishing off the dock. Everything we needed in the kitchen was available and I cooked breakfast every morning for my family and dinners too when we weren't exploring. We did visit area restaurants which were excellent and got into town in time for the Englewood Festival. I would recommend this home to everyone. It was especially nice to meet the neighbors and one was a fireman who lived across the street and was very helpful and nice. The owner was very nice and emailed me to make certain we had everything we needed.

Owner's Response: It is so nice to hear that all the effort we have put into making the home comfortable and well equipped is working out well for our guests. It is a great location and so near all of the fun things there are to do in and around our community. Siesta Key is indeed beautiful, although the traffic there is much more congested than around our closer beaches like Manasota Beach. Regardless, there are tons of fun places to explore.

May was heaven

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 8 days in Pat's "Sunny Spot" at the end of May, and it was heaven. The house was tidy, comfortable, and relaxing with everything we needed. The pool was lovely, the water view luscious, and it was convenient to everything. I highly suggest this house as a great vacation.

Owner's Response: That terrific water view is somewhat of a surprise....when you walk in you are immediately drawn to the floor-to-ceiling windows and then out to the sunny terrace. The house is so conveniently located, too. Beaches, shopping, restaurants...all are just a few minutes away!

Jessica's bday celebration

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home.... better than it look in the photos, super comfortable, we felt at home... definitely will be one of our favorite spots in the future.

Owner's Response: Our Sunny Spot is indeed a very comfortable place for a weekend getaway or a three month long escape from the cold winters up north. Whether you are floating in the pool, sunning on the terrace, reclining in front of the TV, or snuggled up with a book by the floor-to-ceiling windows facing the water, it's all good. We look forward to returning visitors and welcome a call or email any time.

Stayed at the house for a week with my daughter who was on break from grad school. 5 to 20 minutes from everything, shopping, beaches etc. Very comfortable beds and really had everything we needed so could not have asked for anything more. You can catch catfish in the canal just about as fast as you can throw the bait in. Great house and experience!
