The Southwest Gulf Coast region

Whichever way you drive from our location, you will come accross beautiful blue water vistas. Towards the west you will encounter the Intracoastal Waterway and the Gulf beaches. Take a drive along Manasota Key via Englewood Beach and passing Manasota Beach. Further north you have Venice Beach, and the waterways that gave this town its name.

Go north and spend a day visiting Sarasota. Main Street is worth a stroll as is St Armands Circle, which is close to Sarasota beach.

Drive east from this holiday home and you will cross the wide Myakka and Peace rivers both of which flow into Charlotte Harbour. On the east side of the harbour lies Punta Gorda, a residential town with dozens of canals.


Our holiday villa is provided with local guide magazines which will describe the multitude of places to see and visit in the area. Once booked, we will provide you with a list of dozens of websites from local business's, attractions, restaurants, sporting and cultural events, boat rentals, golf courses, and much more. You can research much of what you might want to do before you actually walk off your flight.

Beaches are close (10 mins) and uncrowded. Lots of choices for the golfer. Boating and fishing opportunites are everywhere. Waterfront dining, unhurried shopping, tiki bars are all very local. If you want to drive a bit, then Sarasota can offer much in theatre and museums. Places close by and worth a visit include the "key" like town of Boca Grande on Gasparilla Island. A stroll along Venice Avenue in nearby Venice, taking in the pier and beach. Old Englewood is a glimpse of what Florida used to be. A trip over the Myakka and Peace Rivers to Punta Gorda, with all its many attractions, including Fisherman's Village and Ponce DeLeon Park, is a great day out for all.

"Beautiful villa with a magnificent master bedroom and a lovely place to chill"

A lovely villa with plenty of beaches a short drive away - Boca Grande definitely worth a visit. The property is really spacious and furnished to a high standard, very clean too. A peaceful location but supermarkets etc all relatively near by. Definitely recommend.

"Fantastic & relaxing part of Florida"

We have a fantastic week at Lake Marlin. This place is ideal to get away from the hustle and bustle of main-stream Orlando. The property has a fantastic pool, at a great temperature, high quality furnishings and loads of space. If you are looking for a high quality property in a nice relaxing area of Florida, then this is a great place to stay. The surrounding beaches were beautiful and very quiet during the week, and Tampa/Sarasota is not far if you want to a nice drive and a great outlet mall too. Brian was easy to communicate with and offered loads of info on the area and villa.
