Cottages on Engelwood Beach, Florida

Updated on January 11, 2011

Englewood, Florida, is a relatively small community located between Sarasota and Fort Meyers. Englewood Beach is one of four beaches located on Manasota Key, a barrier island just over the bridge from Englewood. Englewood Beach is considered the most developed of the four beaches and offers public restroom facilities, picnic areas and restaurants for visitors. If you are planning a trip to Englewood Beach, there are a number of cottages offered for rent directly on the beach.

Pelican Shore Cottages

The Pelican Shore Cottages are located directly on the beach on Manasota Key overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Manasota Key is an 11-mile-long barrier island just over the drawbridge from Englewood, Florida. Nine of the 10 cottages have two bedrooms and a private slice of beachfront. There is one three-bedroom cottage available. Boat dockage is also available to all guests. The cottages, made of cypress, are centrally heated and cooled and include a private screened porch. A modern kitchen, cable television and telephone are also provided.
