What a great place to stay! A beautiful apartment, spotlessly clean and with everything you’d need to self-cater (if you wanted to, which we didn’t!). The washer and dryer was a great bonus too. There’s a small but nice pool, which we used every day. We enjoyed watching an osprey eating a fish by the dock on 2 afternoons - it was amazing to see an osprey so close up.
The beach just over the road was quiet, and we spent many hours there swimming, shelling and hunting for sharks’ teeth. You didn’t really have to look too hard for the sharks’ teeth though - we found lots!
The booking process was made so easy by Susan who, although based in California, was able to answer any emailed questions almost before I’d asked them! Our damage deposit was very quickly refunded after we left.
We enjoyed our stay in Englewood very much, and especially the beautiful sunsets. A perfect place to relax and “recover” after a hectic week in Orlando. We will definitely stay at Turtle Bay Condos again if we return to this part of the Florida coast.
