Additional Location Information
When you tire of sitting by our private screened-in pool, there are boundless places of interest to visit including attractions, museums and cultural opportunities. Apart from the beaches, the boat-trips to islands and the wonderful shopping, the region abounds with State Parks where this wonderful sub-tropical Eco-system is being preserved. These parks usually incorporate nature trails, boat tours, canoe rentals, and those on island have, of course, mile upon mile of sandy beaches with great shelling. The wildlife to be enjoyed includes pelicans, egrets, pretty scarlet cardinals, red-cockaded woodpeckers, raccoons, bobcats, alligators, manatees, bald eagles, and the now sadly rare Florida black bears and panthers (though we don’t see many of these last two in our back yard!).
There is excellent shopping in Englewood, and you are sure to find everything you need locally. For food, the Publix supermarket is only minutes away and open until very late at night and 24 hours at certain periods of the year. They have a vast range of food and wine and a deliciously inviting delicatessen. There is a superb fish counter..........and you can have your lobster steamed, ready to eat! They also have a Pharmacy and Bank facilities.
Port Charlotte has a new shopping mall, the Port Charlotte Town Centre. Many a satisfying afternoon can be whiled away in here should your Bank balance allow it! The most renowned of Sarasota’s shopping areas is St. Armands Circle, an island of exquisite boutiques, restaurants and galleries.
This park-like circle is home to over 100 shops and restaurants, which, it has to be said, are generally pricey (observe Sarasota’s seriously wealthy pull up in their chauffeur driven limos!) however, it is wonderfully atmospheric in the early evening to wander around and can be combined with a trip to Siesta Key’s white talcum-powder sand beach.
If, like us, you love dining out, you will have come to the right place. Renowned for fresh local caught seafood, there is a vast choice of places to eat. Every kind of cuisine is catered for from Continental to Japanese. Many restaurants are at the water’s edge, portions are huge and, importantly, inexpensive, so that eating out really is a pleasure!
Make sure you take the short boat trip to Palm Island Resort Restaurant one evening. Palm Island is a private community with a lovely beach – which us ordinary mortals are not allowed to use!
For golfers we are right next to the Long Marsh Golf Club.
Long Marsh's gently rolling fairways meander through 450 acres of natural Florida scrub. Its fairways and greens invitingly framed by native pines, oaks and palms and is Rotonda's newest golf courses. This Ted McAnlis-designed course opened in February of 1999, and it's newest 9 Hole addition in 2007 and is enjoyable for golfers of all levels. At Long Marsh Golf Club in Rotonda West, each hole has its own distinctive character, set amid natural bunkers, lakes and marshes that are haven for wildlife. Four sets of tee boxes provide course distances ranging from 5257 yards to 7120 yards.
