About Katrin

After we got the chance to buy a waterfront house attached to our other home we could´t say NO and so we bought it in June 2015 with more than 1/2 acre waterfront lot with access to the Lemon Bay. Currently renovated and remodelled in September 2016, this house offers the best of architecture, modern luxury and lots of space to enjoy the incredible view over the Manasota Bay.

Katrin purchased this villa in 2015

Why Katrin chose Englewood

This property is unique. Bild on two floors you have a wonderful view over the Lemon Bay and direct access to the water. You can enjoy the wonderful sunsets while sitting on the porch in front of the master suite or on the first floor over the swimming pool, simply drinking a glass of wine or enjoying a nice dinner on the pool deck.

What makes this villa unique

Closed to the beaches, waterfront, sunset views, luxury, spacious with 2800 sq. feet or more than 250 square meters freshly remolded and a nice and outstanding architecture

The Beach home - luxury Lemon Bay waterfront villa
average rating of 4.75 based on 4 reviews

Neat and clean and open. Super user friendly. Great layout for a four bedroom home.

  • 5 of 5

As soon as our week was over, we rebooked for the same week next year. We were a group of old friends gathering for an annual Florida get together. The master suite is exceptional. Has a Jacuzzi tub and a private deck. The master bedroom and the twin bed room with private bath -- both on the third floor -- have an incredible view over the intracoastal waterway to sunset over the Gulf of Mexico. Two additional bedrooms share a bath on the main floor, along with a wide open living room and dining room. The spacious porch overlooks the pool and pool deck where there are both chairs and chaise lounges -- a very comfortable place to spend time. It is a great layout for a group gathering if you enjoy cooking, eating, relaxing at the house rather than going out a lot. There's a lot of space, but the spaces are well connected. We cooked some meals and we also grilled out on the gas grill located on the pool deck. The beach is a nice walk, so you feel you have had a little exercise but it is not a strenuous walk. And it is a great beach, with picnic and grilling facilities as well as a modern restroom. Good shelling and we found sharks' teeth too! There is also a lot to do in Venice and Sarasota if you feel adventuresome. Museums, botanical gardens, county parks where we did a guided Audubon bird walk one morning. Lots of great restaurants. The house was clean and linens and towels (including beach and pool towels) were good. There was WI-FI. Appliances were high end, including washer and dryer. The pool has a cover which is easily rolled back by hand and the water was warm (even in a cool period for Florida!) There were kayaks and golf clubs, although we did not use either. The house is located in a rather private and secluded area down a sand/shell road and there is lots of well established vegetation in the area. We're coming back!

We had a marvellous stay at the villa with seven adult! Landlord's spontaneity was excellent. It was a very short terms booking request but everything ran smoothly and the house was perfectly prepared for us altough the previous tenant only left the same midday. The house is wonderful, so nice and comfortable furnished, with lovely view to Lemon Bay. We enjoyed the sourroundings, the beach and the chilled atmosphere. We definitely will come back for a longer stay!

Exceeded expectations - Beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

For those looking a a nice getaway, don't look further!. We spent a beautiful time here, the house is located right by a channel making accessible to rent jet-skies, and boats, unfortunately we didn't get a chance to do so, because we spent most of the time in the pool, and enclosed-patio enjoying the nice weather, and at night we enjoyed board games.

The house is located at a dead-end street, we felt like we were in our own private little island.

We definitely recommend this house to anyone. My parents are asking, when are we coming back!.

Sincerely, the Paez Family

Manasota Beach
Car: necessary

The popular and well-known Englewood Beach lies just over the south bridge and features a boardwalk, picnic tables under shelters, restrooms and changing facilities. Restaurants and tourist shops are located nearby. The more secluded Stump Pass Beach, part of Florida’s state park system, lies a couple of miles to the south. The park claims the entire southern end of the key. Visitors can explore the mile-long beach and hike the trails where tortoises and egrets call home.

North of Englewood Beach, Blind Pass Beach is a great place to search for shark teeth. The beach also includes a nature trail that meanders through mangroves and sand dunes. Farther north, Manasota Beach offers tranquility and is a popular snorkeling area. Boogie boards, noodles and beach balls are welcome (but California surfers may prefer the Atlantic coast).

Manasota Key is a barrier island off the coast of Englewood; known as the “Gem and the Heart of the Sun Coast”, “a bit of Heaven on Earth”, “a place unspoiled by high rises and high prices”, and “where the “livin” is easy”. Englewood is a community of communities, set comfortably on an area straddling Sarasota and Charlotte counties. Located on Lemon Bay, Englewood has grown from its humble beginnings as a farming area for lumber, lemons and turpentine to a beach community that thrives on nature parks, fishing, boating, and so much more. Englewood is just a short 85 miles south of Tampa Bay, 90 miles north of Naples, 50 miles north of Fort Myers, and only 35 miles south of Sarasota. Englewood is easily accessible from U.S. Route 41 or Interstate 75.

Manasota Key is accessed by two bridges. The Manasota Bridge to the north leads directly to Manasota Beach with the most northern end reserved for an exclusive gated enclave. Martina Navratilova and country singer Tim McGraw are known to winter there at their beachfront mansions. Manasota Beach with its’ community boat ramp just south of the intra-coastal drawbridge, is an attractive spot for locals to launch their boats with quick and easy access to Lemon Bay and the Gulf. It’s also a place to see courting manatees and often a mother manatee with her calf. There’s even a friendly dolphin who enjoys showing off while your standing on the bridge.

South of Manasota Beach, be sure to travel the canopied road where extraordinary residences and some 50’s styled beach homes are nestled in dunes or tucked neatly behind established groves of trees. As you approach a bend in the road, capture a breathtaking view of the Gulf of Mexico and Blind Pass Beach. This is where The Hermitage, a 4-acre artist and writers’ retreat invites international talent to expand their talents at a group of restored historic homes located directly on the shore. Artists are invited to stay for up to six-weeks and in return they are asked to provide two services to the community.

Archaeological digs have unearthed a rich Amer-indian past in Manasota Key. Its Indian Mound Ark is a legacy of the earliest settlers in the area, the Calusa Indians who resided in Southwest Florida thousands of years ago.

The entire community is now a designated wildlife sanctuary where beaches are maintained in a more natural, less developed manner. Only Englewood Beach maintains traditional amenities that often draw a youthful and cost-conscious vacationer and day-tripper.

Manasota Key is also known as the turtle nesting capital of Southwest Florida. Sea turtles begin nesting in March with peak nesting from May through August. Nests incubate 45 to 60 days during peak nesting season that ends Oct. 31. Florida accounts for more than 90 percent of the loggerhead nesting in the United States and is one of the two largest nesting sites in the world. About 80 percent of the world’s population is believed to nest on Florida or Oman on the Arabian Peninsula.

This is also the “Tarpon Capital of the World” with several fishing tournaments held yearly. Two State parks provide excellent opportunities for casting a line for Cobia, mackerel, redfish, whiting and blues.

Southwest Florida, and Englewood in particular, has a variety of shells for the serious or just fun-loving shell collector to find. Many of these shells not only arrive on the beach intact but, in some cases, still inhabited and very much alive. Many shells found on Englewood beaches are the Left Handed Whelks, the Auger shells, Coquina shells and, at low tide, the Rough Scallop and the Fighting Conch…both are great for chowders.

Another common find are Shark Teeth that usually come ashore after a storm. Some of these shark teeth are over a million years old, black and brown colored and range from a tiny 1/8th inch to three inches long.
