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

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This place was awesome! At first glance, we thought the pictures were too good to be true, but the pictures didn't even do it justice! We emailed Nancy and asked if we had to share the pool area with others, only to find out the entire property was private! There was plenty of space for our large family and the beach was only about a five minute drive. Although, we only visited the beach twice the entire week because the rental property had everything we could want! We did have a few "hiccups" while we were there. The master bath shower started leaking from underneath, but after one call to Nancy, she had her home maintenance guy come look at it, and then had to have the septic tank pumped. They made the entire thing such an easy process, that no one even remember the "hiccups" of the vacation! We cooked dinner every night we were there because the kitchen had everything we needed! Overall, it as an excellent vacation and we will definitely be recommending this property to others, as well as visiting again! Thanks so much to Nancy for everything!

Beautiful home, amazing pool, and tremendous landscaping! We loved it! We would definitely go back.

  • 5 of 5

We were traveling with my 86 year old mother-in-law with specific accessibility needs. Nancy, the owner, was terrific to work with from the beginning. She helped make sure the doorways were wide enough for the wheelchair before we rented.

My mother-in-law kept saying she felt like we were on a Hollywood movie set. She thoroughly enjoyed the heated pool and eating out near the fountains. I am afraid we set the bar so high, nothing else will compare for her.

The house was immaculate and tastefully decorated. It was close to beaches and restaurants. We were able to get out for morning excursions and enjoy the pool all afternoon. The large TV was perfect for catching the Michigan Softball game one evening.

The only issue (no fault of owner) we ran into was more related to accessibility, in that grab bars next to the toilet in the master bathroom would have helped with our transfers. The pool isn't a zero depth entry for wheelchairs, but we were able to manage with two of us transferring. Obviously, neither of these items were advertised and aren't needs for most renters.

This was an amazing trip for us and seeing my mother-in-law and my wife smile from ear to ear and laugh while floating in the pool was PRICELESS! We will absolutely rent from Nancy again. Thank you!

Beautiful and Serene! The pictures do not do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week staying at this home. Our group had 4 adults and 4 kids. We had everything we needed for a quiet, relaxing vacation. The kids had no interest in leaving the property, there was so much for them to do! The pool was amazing, and the basketball court was a great place for the boys to burn some energy. We did head to the beach one of the days we were there, but the kids were anxious to get back. The house had everything we needed and more! Nancy was fantastic to work with. We were sad to see our week come to an end.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Michele. Makes me want to be there just to watch the kids playing and having fun. I'm glad you guys enjoyed the house and grounds. You are right about kids, they find all the fun they need with the pool and small beach we made there. So glad you got back home safely . Nancy

Just spent a wonderful week with family at this home.

  • 5 of 5

The entire outdoor space provides a high end resort feel with a variety of activities for all ages. The interior of the home was nicely furnished with large tv's (great for enjoying March Madness!). The home is situated in an area that provided seclusion but allowed for easy access to several beaches, golf courses and nice shopping areas. The home does have two grills which was very useful as we found the gas grill needs to be updated.
