About Nancy C Walker

My husband and I live in VA and found this property almost by accident. It's the perfect place for relaxation, parties, photo ops, receptions, etc. We were so excited about this property that we decided to share it with others by placing it on VRBO. After renting other properties in Englewood for several years, we fell in love with the area. We felt "away from it all" yet close to it all in distance. Very unusual property.

Nancy C Walker purchased this house in 2015

Why Nancy C Walker chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

This property is in one of the best areas of Englewood and is close to everything that you will need on your vacation. 5 miles from Manasota Key and Englewood Beaches where you can park and spend the day on the gulf. Play golf just around the corner! Shop and eat just around the corner!

What makes this house unique

When you first drive up and see the huge Banyan Tree, you will fall in love with the place. We added a small table under the tree just for enjoying the shade. The garden is like no other that you will find unless it is a resort somewhere or at Disney. The stone walls with waterfalls are unbelievable and so relaxing. Sit and listen to the birds, enjoy the hot tub. Sit on the homemade beach with white sand and listen to the water falls from the pool area. Invite someone to play badminton, basketball or play tennis on the court.

Banyon Tree Oasis is more a very private resort then a mere rental home

  • 5 of 5

We, my wife and I and our 5-year-old Vizsla, loved our stay at Banyan Tree Oasis. We spent the month of February there. The master bedroom was as nice as any master bedroom I've seen. It was extremely large and beautifully appointed. There was an decent-sized walk-in closet and a nice, if not spectacular, master bath. The master bedroom walks out to a tropical paradise with waterfalls, fountains, a "stream", hot tub and more. All this is fabulously landscaped like a tropical paradise, making for a beautiful view out the two walls of solid windows interrupted only by the fireplace and large (60"?) flat screen TV.

The main living/dining/kitchen area is enormous and also beautifully furnished. The centerpiece is the main living area, which is set up as a home theater with comfortable loungers viewing an 80" TV. It walks out to the gorgeous pool, putting green and other parts of the huge, gorgeously landscaped, huge yard. The pool is fully fenced and a nice large area for our dog to explore and romp. She was exhausted every evening and that's a significant accomplishment for a Vizsla.

There is a nice guest bedroom and bath and a small third bedroom with bunks. Everything was very comfortable and completely ready for our arrival.

While there, we had a few maintenance issues and the response by the owner and her local team of highly professional people was extraordinarily fast, resolving even some difficult problems in less than 24 hours.

Overall, this was the most private and possibly the most comfortable and beautiful rental home we've ever stayed in and we've rented over a dozen homes through VRBO, most in SW Florida.

Owner's Response: Thank you Steve, we alway's want our guests to be able to feel at home and enjoy the property. You have a beautiful and well behaved dog so I'm glad she had fun also. It makes for a great vacation when you have less worries about your pet. Our caretaker said you left the house in excellent condition as you found it and we would welcome you back any time. Nancy

Not worth the money you pay to stay here

  • 1 of 5

This home was nice when we came into it, But the first day we found that it did not have what they said they had. We could not get the ice machine to work, and did not have the extra ice machine, so we just went and bought ice, no problem , then the 1st night we was there the ants and mosquitoes we so bad we could not be outside after 7 pm, then we tried to walk around later after we bought some stuff to keep them off us, the outside lights by the garden and the hot tub was shorting out, we told the maintenance people the next day and they said they would call the owner to get it taken care of, nothing ever happened. We went to use the grill and we smelled gas and good thing my husband is a handy man he looked at it and it was the regulator, so we just bought one and put it on, no problem. we went to take showers and we only had 5 towels to use now we had 6 people and they knew this. so we had to do laundry every day to take showers. when i went to the hot tub it was filled with dead skin and not sure what else it was very gross, the pool guy came that next Monday and he cleaned it out for us. but i feel all this should of been taken care of before we got there and all the stuff clean. but was not. We got there on Friday and was to leave the next Friday, we booked this 6 month ahead so had plenty of notice. The day after we got there we found cockroaches and she said they were wood roaches i don't care i don't want any of them, she said they are common down there i have stayed in other places down there and did not have them. the pool was great, but a snake goes in the pool and even the pool guy was scared of it. so just had to watch it. kids love the jumping off the ledge it was nice. MAKE SURE YOU BUY THE INSURANCE FROM VRBO. we got home and got a call from the owner the kids spilled a soda on the bed the day we left and I was not aware of it but the owner is now saying she has to replace the mattress and pillows and bedspread, king sheet set, and 2 door rugs { never once did she say anything to me about the door rugs} don't know what happened there. but the insurance covers all of it. We will never return here, We had to work every day there, sweep the patio so you can go out on it without cutting your feet from the droppings from the tree. they do not have a broom. many other problems. the owner said we broke into a linen closet that we did not do, many other things, thsy also have poison ivy on grounds, beware kids got it bad.

Owner's Response: The only thing to believe about this guest is her first statement "it was nice when we first came to it" Our home has never been treated this badly by any other guests. They damaged the entire king mattress and covering with a liquid that would not come out. She says a "coke" I don't believe a word of this. When I called her to ask what happened in the master bedroom she actually had the audacity to say everything was fine and left clean. Later she changed the story to say her daughter and children stayed in that bedroom and they had cleaned everything before leaving but she didn't actually see the bedroom before leaving. She said the children had fun jumping off the ledge into the pool but they actually shared the pool with a snake, you can tell that this entire post is false. They moved furniture around, took our dining chairs outside formed a circle near the hot tub and had a party there. That dirty hot tub which evidently they also loved enough to party around it. I posted a do not rent to these people on VRBO several weeks ago so I'm sure she has heartburn about that also. Also all the towels which were plenty, were marked up or painted on and we had to dispose of them. If I could post pictures of all the damages I would do so. Please read other reviews to see the real story of our beautiful property. Nancy Walker

The property was just like the photos, everything was in great condition, spacious, relaxing.

  • 4 of 5

The home was well maintained, we had so much fun with the pool, tennis courts. It was close enough to the beach and we spent our time between the pool and beach.

This property is in an unspoilt location, Nancy was fantastic and it we had the best vacation ever and will return soon.

The Perfect Wedding!!

  • 5 of 5

Our son was recently married at the Banyon Tree Oasis. We had the wedding and the reception there. The Bride was looking at beach venues, but when she visited here the search was over.

It is a beautiful tropical setting with flowers, stone walls and walkways, running water, even a putting green and pool!

Our guests loved it and were amazed at how different it was, they had never seen anything like it.

Some of us were there for a few days before and after the wedding to take full advantage of this lovely property.

We all had a wonderful time, and I highly recommend checking in here for ANY occasion you might have coming up. It will exceed your expectations!

Thank You Nancy and Pete!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much guys! You took great care of our property and the neighbors commented that they loved the music which you kept to a low level. The neighbors had no complaints and with around 45 people attending, that is a huge compliment. We will post some of the photos soon. Thank you so much, Nancy

Feels like your own private resort! It's as beautiful as the photos!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this secluded and luxurious property. The pool is fantastic, especially for kids, and the outdoor patio with the grass hut and 2 BBQ grills is great for outdoor dining. The grounds are amazing with a hot tub nestled among exotic flowers, trees, and water fountains. There is also a fire pit, putting green, and basketball/badminton court to keep everyone entertained. The house is fully equipped with every amenity one might need and the open kitchen/t.v./dining room provides great gathering spots. This truly is a wonderful oasis.

Paradise Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our dogs, Cowboy and Indi Bleu and our friends with their pets had the most wonderful vacation at Banyan Tree Oasis. From the moment we stepped into the yard, we could not believe the beauty of this property. Cowboy and Indi loved the beach entry pool and would swim for hours. Everything was immaculate on our arrival, and writing about this tropical adventure makes me wish I were there now. I thought not to write a review hence very few would know about this gorgeous home and its ameniites and I could keep this treasure all to myself, but I really feel grateful for having the opportunity to spend our vacation here and need to share it with others. If you are looking for paradise..you will find it here!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much. Nothing pleases us more than to hear that our hard work has paid off. We added a Tiki Hut on the patio for shade so this makes one more area of relaxation and enjoyment for our guests. Nancy
