About Amy

Our favorite childhood memories are from building giant sandcastles, jumping the warm waves, hunting for the perfect seashell & eating tasty key lime pies with our grandparents on sunny florida vacations. My husband & I met on vacation after college in near-by Longboat Key - introduced by grandparents! So Florida vacations have already been near to our hearts. My husband Frank grew up visiting Manasota Key beaches with grandparents. We spent years looking for the perfect location on the Key to call our own & finally blue starfish beach resort was born! It is our absolute pleasure to introduce our guests to this little bit of paradise, perfect for making fond beach memories that will last a lifetime.

Why Amy chose Englewood

Great location! Clean, well decorated, plenty of everything needed for kitchen and beach.

  • 5 of 5

I...we love this place. This is the second year in a row for our group of 6 women! Love the property, so close to the beach, and lots of shark teeth to hunt. Restaurant, souvenir shop and convenience store close enough to walk to. Wal Mart, shopping center, and even a Bingo hall close by! The unit we stayed in even had a washer and dryer right in the room! Everything you could want in the kitchen, plenty of towels, beach towels and beach gear. Hope to stay here again...unless our group gets bigger! But I guess we could always get two units! Love, love, love this place!

Fit our needs for the prefect family vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We had an amazing trip. The beach cottage was everything we needed. It was clean and a good size. It has been updated and definitely has a cute feel to it. As many have said before the bathroom isn’t the best, but we aren’t at the beach for the roomand bathroom! The bathroom seems to stay a bit damp/mildew smell and is small, but overall the rest of the place is perfect. Loved having a washer and dryer, beach towels, chairs and beach umbrellas. We were super close to the beach! I also highly recommend checking out the morning yoga on the beach was a treat! Our first trip to the area and will definitely be back. Loved the quite community and the ocean was so calm while we were there saw dolphins and a manatee. I would definitely recommend the place to a friend and would consider staying again! I would guess it would be perfect space for 4 adults and 2-3 children (we had two adults and 1 kid).

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great hosts, great location with easy put in for kayaks and canoes and close walk to beach. Kitchen well stocked with new appliances. Enough space for our family. Close to city beach park and restaurants. Used as a home base for fishing in Boca Grande, a 30 minute scenic drive away. Pool and ping pong were great for the kids. Loved our trip!

Awesome little house

  • 4 of 5

This location was wonderful. Truly a minute walk to the beach. Lots of shells and shark teeth to be found. There en was a bit of a moldy smell from the bathroom, but that is the only complaint. It was a great get away.

Owner's Response: Hi Tunicia - Happy to hear you enjoyed Casa Sangria!! We had the plumber swing by and there was a minor drip under the sink which I think is what you noticed - he fixed it right away fortunately. Thanks for letting us know so it could be rapidly resolved. And thanks for being fantastic guests! Best, amy
