Englewood is one of Florida’s best kept secrets. This quaint beach town is still “Olde Florida” with natural beaches, no high rise buildings, plus a laid back life-style. Situated on beautiful Lemon Bay, Englewood is only approximately 45 minutes from Sarasota Airport, 1.5 hours south of Tampa International Airport and 1.5 hours north of Fort Myers Airport. With only a short drive to all the culture and shopping available in larger cities you can still enjoy the nurturing small town atmosphere. Come to visit and stay for a lifetime.
