“We really loved our trip to Englewood. The area is lovely if you like beach and wildlife. We visited in August, although it was hot and humid, with plenty of summer storms, it was pretty bearable, thanks to the nice surroundings and the wonderful house of Bob and Margie. The house is big and comfortable, with everything you could dream of (AC and a wonderful swimming pool included). They gave us plenty of good tips of places to visit and things to do, so we were quite busy every day and had a lot of fun. People in the area are nice and friendly. Thanks to a ball game we started playing we have the opportunity of knowing local people and of feeling quite integrated. The relation with Bob and Margie was easy and fluent from the beginning. They are very friendly, respectful and reliable people. We feel as we have some new friends with whom we have share houses, time and experiences. In summary, we would define our exchange as WONDERFUL and if you ask us, we would REPEAT IT AGAIN! Bob and Margie were in our apartment in Donostia- San Sebastian for more than a couple of weeks. They were very nice, respectful and reliable people. When we came back to the apartment everything was in its place, clean and in order, they behave as it was their own house. We feel as we have some new friends with whom we have share the houses.”

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.
