This two story Floridian jewel on the water awaits you with beautiful serene views from every window. Just two steps down from the charming Lanai a fishing pole & your fresh catch for dinner awaits you while sipping your favorite cocktail. Relax & enjoy watching our friendly & gentle' sea cows ' commonly known as Manatee's without leaving your chair. It truly is an awesome experience ,one we never take for granted. I would suggest to be camera ready at all times the dolphins will venture in as well.

My wife & I have lived in Florida for over twenty years & raised our two college age children here. I am a successful business owner of twenty years,well established & respected in our beachside community of Englewood Florida.
The Owner purchased this cottage in 2005
We purchased this property with the intentions of moving in when we retire. Still 10 years away from that.
Have you ever seen a Manatee? They're frequent visitors swimming up and down the canal. Step out the side door with you're fishing pole and catch dinner. Thats right, as I've caught Red Fish, Snook, Snapper and lots of Cat Fish. Once you experience this property you will return.
This is a repeat stay for us because it is where we can fully relax. The accommodations are comfortable and clean both inside and out. I was able to read and my husband able to catch fish right off of the dock. We had the choice of grilling his catch of the day right there on the deck or enjoy any of the delicious restaurants in the area. Even though this was a get away, being able to use the wifi was a benefit as well. We also appreciated being able to have our beloved dog with us.
Dave is very accommodating, anticipating our every need. Thank you and we will be back!
We stayed for an extended week last July 4, 2013. The owners are great people and were wonderful to deal with!! The home has everything you need for a waterside vacation. Heck, it just has everything! It was perfect for us as we had our boat and trailer, our Labs and live with some disabling conditions, too, It fit us in every avenue. We had an issue with our boat mid-week, but due to the excellent location of this home being near a boat ramp, and their on site kayaks for our use, it all worked out perfectly for our stay and play. We do so hope to stay with them once again. The area was very friendly. We also drove up to Boca Grande and over to the beaches by car and boated just about everywhere else. We saw a lot of beautiful sea life. We cooked on the grill pretty much nightly and caught great fish right there, too. You will not be disappointed in this beautiful rental. Dog friendly too, A+!
My wife and I have stayed at many different locations in Englewood over the last 20 years or so, but this is by far the very best. Excellent location, very well equiped home, with top of the line furniture and amenities. Area was so quiet, but close to Old Englewood, shopping and of course my favorite fishing holes. Grandkids came over for dinner and really enjoyed fishing off the deck. Being pet friendly was a real bonus for us and Jack or lab. Already booked another week for 2014. My new home for sure.
Back again and enjoyed every minute of it. Can't say enough about the place. Always clean and the convenience with the boat is unmatched. Thanks again David for another great anniversary trip. See you next year!
Our stay at this lovely house was amazing. It was very well kept and has everything you need. We stayed for a week but wish we could have stayed much longer. The quiet location and convenience to everything was a huge plus for us. The dock was in excellent condition too. David was wonderful to deal with. He definitely cares about your comfort and enjoyment while staying here and he was readily available to answer any questions. We are already planning a return next year…and hopefully more after that.
We loved this cottage! We spent our 2 week vacation at the cottage with our two springer spaniels. We could not have had a better experience. It was clean, comfortable, and stocked with everything you could possibly need on vacation. We sat out on the dock every day enjoying the scenery and wildlife. We saw manatees, one of which came right up to our dock to say hello, many seabirds, and even a dolphin. We spent lots of time fishing and appreciated the bait bucket provided by Dave, and local bait at the market down the road. We even caught a 30 inch snook, among many other fish. We also appreciated the kayaks, we went out early in the mornings and saw lots of wonderful wildlife.
Dave was the perfect host. He was friendly, available, and accomodating. We would not hesitate to recommend this rental. We will definetly be back! We hope you enjoy this jewel as much as we did. Thanks so much Dave!
