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 Englewood
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
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.
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.
Resort like home
This was a stunning and wonderful property. We had our annual family vacation and the kids thought they were in a secret resort all to themselves. The house is beautiful and great layout for family with open floor plan. The owners, pool & garden caretakers were wonderful and super helpful during our stay. This house would be an awesome house for a family vacation, A girl or Mom's trip or honeymoon stay. Close to beaches and main roads but seclude to feel you are in your own private retreat! You are about 15 mins to Nokomis, 10 mins from Venice and 5 mins to the englewood or Manasota beaches. We explored englewood a bit more this year and was pleasantly surprised at the fun spots close to englewood beach such as the restaurants and bars. I highly recommend the sandbar restaurant it had live bands, good food and games outside for you to play corn-hole on a date or connect four with the kids. A lot of fun all the way around!!! I hope to return to the property soon!
A little piece of paradise!
We loved our stay at this property. The pool was amazing and the house had plenty of extras. Any issues that came up were resolved very quickly by Nancy. Hoping to stay again next year!
Thank you Kelly for your review and for taking care of our property. We would welcome you back any time.
Englewood all sports home
We stayed at this property Feb - Mar 2018. Its updated and very comfortable inside and has many activities out. The pool was warm and fun with its beach entry and grotto. There is a putting green and badminton court as well that kept us entertained. Beautiful grounds in a lush setting. Its located in a quiet residential area.
My husband and I, along with our 2 very busy herding dogs, really enjoyed this property. The pool was great. It is heated and with the easy entry into the pool, we spent most of the time just lounging in the pool. Never actually checked out the hot tub because we didn't need it. One of our dogs is blind so having the pool area all fenced in was very helpful.
Nancy was really easy to work with. We were in Ft. Myers Beach for 3 weeks before staying here and we were indecisive about extending our vacation another week and moving locations and she was very patient with us. So glad we did extend it and stayed here.
The beach area is a close drive but we only went there one day because what we really wanted was a relaxing week by the pool and that is just what we got.
The house was clean and had everything we needed to feel at home.
The only suggestion I would have would maybe try to get rid of some of the coconuts that fall around the pool area. Maybe just the ones that look like they could fall. It made us jump a few times when they fell. Don't know if this is even possible since I have never had a palm tree.
Thank you Nancy for sharing your beautiful home with us.
The property is overall beautiful.
We arrived the 26th of December for a week long stay, and were pleasantly surprised at the beautiful pool and landscaping! A few hiccups but any issue was promptly addressed by owner. My only recommendation is to have the cleaning staff do a more thorough job - we had to sweep and dust upon arrival. I definitely recommend this house, and would stay there again.
You guys were great and wonderful guests. Thank you for enjoying the house and grounds. We definitely would like to have you back with a discount. Thank you for the wonderful and honest review.
