USEFUL INFORMATION:

BEACHES
Englewood beach is just a short drive away from the villa. This large public beach has the sugar white sand found on the best of Florida beaches. This beautiful beach has a peaceful relaxed atmosphere. The beach is never crowded. Sometimes the pelicans and herons outnumber the sunbathers! The Boardwalk at Englewood Beach provides 3 covered pavilions, areas to sit and watch the magnificent sunset, barbecue and picnic area and restrooms with changing and shower facilities.

Boca Grande is accessed by a toll bridge ($6 to cross). There you will find beautiful beaches with lots of white sand, beautiful clear water, some small dunes and a wooden dune walkover from the parking lot. It's a great place to see dolphins, tarpon, snook, and manatee. The water's edge is usually full of birds searching for food. To the far south of the island is a historical lighthouse. Opening times can be found by calling 941-964-0060.

If you are a fan of TK Maxx then visit TJ Maxx (same company) in nearby Venice for household and fashion bargains. Marshalls in Port Charlotte is a similar store.


BOATING
There is so much to do "On the Water" - Fish, sail or cruise, the choice is yours! Hire a boat and sail along the Intercoastal waterways having a peek at million dollar properties!

WILDLIFE
South West Florida is home to large & small mammals including bobcats, wild boar, raccoons, armadillos & oppossum. A bobcat has been spotted on several occasions crossing over the back plot but nobody has been quick enough to catch one on camera! You may see a Gopher Turtle at the bottom of the garden. One lives down in the swale at the back of our property. Gopher turtles are a protected species in Florida. They say that any stretch of water in Florida may contain an alligator or two so watch out if you are on the golf course and your ball goes near the water. We have woodpeckers and owls among the many birds that visit our garden.

At the beach you might see dolphin and manatee. Bocca Grand is a great place to watch manatee slowly swim past the shoreline. The pelican and herons are incredibly unfazed by humans and will land very close especially if there someone nearby fishing.
