Weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cute cottage rental for the weekend. The cottage is exactly what looks like in the pictures. It was very clean and the owners really go out of their way to make sure this was a great experience. The home had everything you need to enjoy your stay. Within 2.5 miles to the beach and publix was walking distance from the home. Neighborhood was very quaint and quiet. We brought out 15 ft boat which we were able to store safety in the fenced in yard. I would stay here again and highly recommend it. Thanks Doane & Cathie!!!

Perfect space, perfect location for a relaxing weekend at the beach

  • 5 of 5


We had to wonderful opportunity to stay at this charming property for a mother/daughter weekend in Englewood. Everything was very well organized from the booking process to the check-in and check-out. The property owner was very responsive to our questions as well! The kitchen is well equipped, the living space is comfortable and the sleeping areas were very comfortable. It was nice to have multiple spaces to sleep in and we each had our own bathroom. One of the pull outs is closed off with it's own bathroom so you can have some privacy from the main living area. The backyard was beautiful and is fully fenced in, with a swing, place to eat and a fire pit! Though we did not bring our dogs on this trip, this would have been a great space for them to run around in.

There are plenty of good local restaurants to choose from and of course a beautiful beach where we found plenty of shark teeth and beautiful sea shells. The home comes with everything that you need for a great trip to the beach including beach cruisers, beach cart, beach towels, snorkel masks, a cooler and many other items. We would definitely recommend staying here to anyone looking for a great location close to the beach. Thank you for your hospitality!

Another Great Winter in Englewood

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity to stay in this charming cottage again this winter. Loved the upgrades to the ceramic floors, bath reno and fresh paint. Close to walking trails, kayaking and the beach. There are numerous fantastic dining facilities nearby on Dearborn Street. The owner is quick to respond to any questions you might have. Had a lovely stay and can't wait till next year

Quaint Cottage Minutes from the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This property fits my families needs perfectly! As a family of 5 who likes to travel a lot, this property is a great value. Very clean, updated, and slept my family perfectly. The large fenced back yard gave the kids a nice place to go and play. The property is conveniently located minutes from the beach and only a few miles from multiple boat ramps and marinas.

My family really enjoyed Stump Pass State Park. They always talk about the shark teeth they found on the beach. For me, I was able to back our suburban with a 22' boat in the driveway without unhitching. This enabled us to be on the water in minutes, whether we were fishing Stump Pass for Snook or heading in to the gulf after bigger game. This area is a great fishery and I hope to come back every summer.

We also enjoyed a couple of the beach front restaurants not more than 5 minutes away. Great food and live music! A great ending to long days at the beach or on the water.

Wonderful home to vacation in!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay in this clean convenient home close to the beaches. The home is very cozy and the furnishings also. The yard is so nice as well if you enjoy sitting outside in cooler part of the day. Had no problems with anything and so nice to have a laundry area as well. Would for sure recommend this to anyone looking for a place to stay.

Beautiful beaches with amazing sunsets, dolphin and manatee sightings. Shells and sharks teeth are plentiful. There are secluded stretches of beach to enjoy. Stump Pass and Blind Pass are two I highly recommend visiting.
