About the owner: My husband & I are ranchers in Montana. We like to get out of the cold weather somewhat in the winter. We have brought our families down to fish, boat & play on the many beaches as well.
We discovered the Englewood area 15 years ago & continue to return & enjoy the area.
Summertime here is spectacular as very quiet, & fishing is phenomenal too.

Why this property? The Sanctuary is a small HOA with 72 units...8 buildings. It is located on a quiet dead end street. No traffic, & crime is nonexistent. It is definitely Old Florida at its finest.

Whether you want to hit the beach for the day or go boating & fishing you will definitely find it quiet & rarely many people. The beaches are all pure & wide. Beautiful white sand & sunsets spectacular.

Englewood has a Saturday winter market that offers more than you can imagine..It offers Lemon Bay Playhouse on Dearborn St. certain times of the year. Fun shopping & restaurants too...

Eight golf courses in the area.

Wonderful restaurants in the area too that are close by. The Lighthouse Grill at Stump Pass, Ken & Barbies on Oyster Creek, Rum Bay (take the ferry or your boat) the list is long.

Lemon Bay Park & Environmental Center is great for bird watching.

Boca Grande is just 10 minutes away with great shopping, lovely restaurants & beautiful beaches. A historic museum is a treat on the end of the island at Boca Grande Pass which is infamous for tarpon fishing.

Escape the big city & come to this wonderful location to relax & enjoy any time of the year.
This condo is big enough for Grandparents & the family to enjoy.

Dream Come True!

Location was what initially attracted us to The Sanctuary. Out your back door is Florida nature at its best between Lemon Bay Conservancy and Amberjack Environmental Park. However, our experience has proved this condo community has so much more to offer. This beautifully furnished condo is the ultimate place to reside. Every detail ensures a clean, comfortable, worry-free stay with quality furnishings. Although there are many restaurants nearby, we enjoyed making meals in the fully equipped kitchen or grilling outdoors. The living spaces are designed for visits from family or friends whether indoors or outdoors in the screened in balcony. There is ample closet and storage space. Skylights and large windows with great views will brighten any day. The beds are very comfortable with quality bedding and linens.We were made to feel welcome and included by The Sanctuary community from day one. Activities we enjoyed were pickleball, the heated pool, golf, community events, hiking, bicycling, and numerous trips to nearby Gulf beaches.The condo owners were very responsive to any questions and we can’t thank them enough. If you have the rare opportunity to stay in this condo at The Sanctuary don’t hesitate…grab it. We look forward to future stays!
