Beautiful location! Sunsets were gorgeous. Dock just steps away to sit and see the scenery. More wildlife than I thought we would ever see at the bay. The neighbors were wonderful always had more ideas of fun things to do. The picture window to the sunroom is like a postcard with the plants and water. House was so comfortable like home away from home. Would love to stay here again!!
The house was immaculate and the setting fabulous! The owners were very gracious and accommodating. This area is beautiful and close to several beaches with great views and shelling. One of our favorite parts was the awesome 100' dock off the back yard leading out to the water. Fishing, sunsets and coffee :)
There are a lot of great restaurants around. We liked the White Elephant the most! Stump Pass Beach leads way to a beautiful walk to a gorgeous sand bar. We were also very close to Venice, Siesta Key Beach, Punta Gorda, Boca Grande and of course Sanibel Island. All very easy drives from this location.
We also discovered a great Winery right in Englewood!! It is called Catania's and features delicious wine, first-pressed olive oil and 25 year balsamic vinegar! Definitely recommend this as a stop! We got to see a lot of wild life around the house itself....lizards, snakes, fish, and the birds were so fun to watch! We would highly recommend this rental property and plan on returning in the future!
We had spent a week in Brettons rental for our honeymoon, the beginning of June. We had looked at pictures prior to going, but didn't actually realize how nice it was until we walked through the front door. Everything is newly updated including the appliances, the instructions to the property and to get inside were easy and very clear, plus the beds were super comfortable. More comfortable than our bed at home! The house was located right on the bay with a dock, so we were able to sit out there and just enjoy our time together, we also had great sunrises! The house had AC, cable, washer and dryer, a screened in back porch, and a garage where we were able to keep our car rental out of the sun which was definitely a bonus! The area was very quiet, there were many beach options pretty close for us to choose if we wanted to go somewhere new. Englewood had nice beaches, the restaurants were delicious that we had tried, and the people were all super nice around the area. We just simply had an all around perfect experience, everything was so simple, but it turned out to be a wonderful honeymoon. We plan to stay here again if Bretton will have us back! I would recommend this rental to anyone looking for a nice relaxing home in a quiet area.
