About our home

Our Florida home is a vacation home and is available for exchange throughout the year. Our family home is in Canada and we prefer not to travel during the months of July and August, however we would be happy to book our Florida home for non-simultanious exchanges during those months.

Welcome to Englewood, Florida where you will find a taste of "Old Florida". This is a laid-back community where there are no buildings more than three stories high, but with beautiful beaches, an interesting "old downtown", lots of outdoor activities, good dining and easy access to many of the tourist attractions of Florida.

Our home is a bright spacious 3 bedroom bungalow with tile floors throughout, located on a large private lot just minutes from Englewood beach. There is an enclosed lanai, private heated pool and spa. The pool area is totally enclosed by screening and wonderful for swimming, or just enjoying the comfy outdoor furniture which is under a covered area next to the pool. Each of the 3 bedrooms is furnished with a queen sized bed, chest of drawers and has a large closet. The master bedroom has an en-suite bath with large walk-in shower: there is also a 4 piece bathroom between the other 2 bedrooms. The house is air-conditioned and there are ceiling fans in each room. The kitchen is fully equipped for family living with a full sized refrigerator, dishwasher, stove, microwave. There is seating for 6 at the dining table as well as an island with seating. A washer and dryer round out the appliances.

We love the outdoor life that Florida promotes. We enjoy hiking, biking, walking the 8 miles of sand beach, playing tennis at the nearby tennis courts and dining out at the many local restaurants. Many excellent golf courses are nearby. We especially love coming home to sit by our pool, enjoy a cool refreshment and watch the magnificent sunsets.

Our home comes equipped with bicycles, beach chairs and beach toys. Golf clubs are available for your use.
Weekly lawn and pool service is provided.

More about us

  1. We are an active retired Canadian couple. Margaret is a recently retired Registered Nurse and Robert enjoyed an entrepreneurial career in software development and marketing. We are the parents of 4 grown children and the grandparents of 3 wonderful grandsons.

    We have enjoyed travelling to many parts of the world and look forward to seeing new places and revisiting some of our favourites. Now that we have more time we would like to take the opportunity to stay in one location long enough to feel like a local. Our home in Englewood is our second home so non-simultaneous exchanges are an option.

Where is it?


We live in a suburban neighbourhood in a quiet town off of the beaten track. Englewood has a small historic downtown and a large weekly Farmers Market. It has a very active community theatre. People love the fishing and boating, shelling and looking for sharks teeth on the beach on Manasota Key and participating in Yoga on the Beach.

Englewood is located on the Gulf of Mexico between Tampa and Fort Myers. Its central location provides an ideal base for visiting the area. Driving distances: Disney World 2 hours, Kennedy Space Centre 3 hours, Miami 3 hours. Sarasota, a vibrant art community, is less than 1 hour way. Sanibel Island, the shelling capital of the world and home of the "Ding Darling" bird sanctuary is only 1 1/2 hours away.

Major League Baseball spring training takes place each year in the month of March. The Tampa Bay Rays spring training field is only a 15 minute drive from our home.
