“Great place, real bargain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2008

I rented for a short stay with my wife and two year old child. The room was spacious and clean, and Joe the owner really took care of us. Our room had two bedrooms, kitchen and living and dining areas and was perfect to keep the kid separated during naps and early bedtimes. I found no other place in the area with so much space, and it would be perfect for a comfortable extended stay.

I actually arrived on May 31 and stayed until June 7 of 2008. I had a small efficiency apartment. It had a very small living room kitchen combo and a bedroom with a bathroom. It was just perfect for one person or a couple. I was traveling alone this time and I felt very safe. The shower worked excellent and I always had enough hot or cold water. The bed was okay but there is nothing like your own so it's hard tocompare. I never heard any of my neighbors much. I will definately stay here again if the need fits.

We stayed here for a little romantic anniversary getaway. We stayed in 108h. A little cozy cottage. The cottage was very clean and had everything we could possibly need. The kitchen was fully equipped. Everything from utensils, pots and pans, wine glasses, ice, etc. The court yard was beautiful and the gas grill was an added plus. We made some awesome porter house steaks with it. There is cable tv, a bedroom, pull out sofa, air, fireplace, and our own private little table outside the back door. It was close to everything. We also visted Stump pass beach and the Lock and Key resteraunt. The innkeeper at the cottage knew we were planning to go there and left menus for us in our cottage. He is a very friendly man. We will definetely be back!!!! Check out our pictures! Thanks Joe!!!!

What a great Englewood Florida experience! The location is near everything from the funky shops and restaurants of historic Dearborn Street to the swimming and sailing (or simply sitting in the sun) on one of Englewood's four terrific beaches.

Our cottage was clean, well-maintained and the owners (Joe and Melabeth) went beyond the call to ensure that our two week stay was safe, comfortable, and relaxing.

The Internet availability in the rooms and the courtyard is a fantastic plus!!! (After all, where would I be without my email connection!)

We think that Joe is the most hospitable host anywhere and highly recommend a stay at the Englewood Bay Motel & Apartments.

Our stay at Englewood Bay Motel and Apartments could not have been better. Our unit was clean and comfortable - Perfect for 2 who need their space. The common areas were inviting and we cooked on the grill almost everynight. We met other guest of the Motel and apartments and enjoyed speaking to them about their daily adventures. Joe and his staff could not have been more helpful - we really felt like a memeber of the family. This place was so convenient. We loved the short drive to Englewood beach and cute "old englewood village " for breakfast and shopping.
We will be back next year !

We needed a break from Vermont’s endless winter and its worst flu season ever, and so we decided last-minute to book an economical and restful week on the Gulf Coast. If you’re looking for low-key, high-value respite, you can’t beat Englewood. Nestled between Venice and Boca Grande, Englewood has a small town, real Florida feel. The beaches of Manasota Key are terrific, and Dearborn Street boasts a nice selection of local area businesses. We stayed at Englewood Bay Motel and Apartments, with host Joe Grippi, who provided a wealth of useful tips regarding area activities and resources. Our accommodations were spacious, comfortable, and clean. You’ll want a car to get to and from the beaches, but we loved our stay and found everything we could want or need in the local environs. For a wonderful jewel hidden amongst its glitzier neighbors, try the town of Englewood, and specifically, the Englewood Bay Motel and Apts and Mangos Bistro.

We stayed in the 2 bedroom condo style apartment for a week at Christmas time 2007. Very clean, comfortable, nicely furnished and the kitchen had everything for cooking. Such friendly and accomodating owners made the stay even more enjoyable. This is located on a quite street you can walk across to watch the sunset and we even saw dolphins in the channel one evening. I will definitely return when I have the opportunity and possibly bring the whole family. Regards, Lynn from Michigan
