I surprised my husband with a mini stay-cation located one hour from our house. I chose this quaint little gem for it's great price and proximity to the Gulf of Mexico, a few foot step to be precise. I read some not so great reviews, but decided to check this place out anyway. We were very impressed!! It's not a... More

We have stayed at Island House for the month of March in both 2014 and 2015, the property is older and in need of upgrades. The new owner and management are in the process of making these changes. We found the unit to be cleaner this year than last, and that an effort has been made to improve landscaping and... More

We came to The Island house in Feb 2015 to visit my parents who come to Englewood each winter. We had to pay cash and the manager stated that she would talk to the "owner" about a refund due to the broken down condition of the unit. She said "The owners own family would never stay here" and admitted that... More

Thank you for your review Jayne. As per our phone conversation I informed you that we do not use Credit Cards and prefer "Cash or Cashiers Check" for payment due to Out of State checks being a timely process. You paid me by Cashiers Check. NOT CASH. I also would like to bring it to your attention that you were... More

We came to unit 2 based on our interpretation of the reviews and pictures on the web. They are not what they appear. The place is clean but resembles a cement box with duck tape on windows and no views from the apartment unless you are standing up in the master bedroom. The rooms are very dark and dingy and...

Thank you for your review. I made it very clear to you on our first phone conversation that the building was in need of repair and that ownership had changed in January 2015. We were unable to do anything due to the fact we were fully booked for the season. The taped window on the door was a "quick fix"... More

We have stayed at a lot of places on the beach and this was our favorite. VERY clean and had the best view ever. We will go here from now on. The owners are awesome. A great home away from home. Loved

The location is ideal - right on the beachfront . The decor is a bit dated and there was some dust but the kitchen and bathroom were clean. The rooms are spacious and there is a good kitchen area. The price is very reasonable - great value for money . The owners are pleasant and helpful .

Island House was just what we were looking for while spending time in Englewood. I grew up in Englewood and had not been back for over 20 years. I was excited to share my home-town with my grandchildren and was looking for a location where we could relax and have fun. My absolute requirements were: beachfront property, no stairs, no... More

Whilst the decor could do with a little updating - the 2 bedroom apartment was spacious and clean. The location is ideal - right on the beach . We saw dolphins from our bedroom window !!! If you are looking for a quiet relaxing getaway - this is the place . The room rate is excellent value for money .
