About Laura Morris

We have been married for 35 years and going to Englewood for longer than that. We love the water, boating, fishing and have a passion for the natural surroundings that Englewood has to offer.

Why Laura Morris chose Englewood

I vacationed in Englewood as a child and am now 56. My husband and I came on our honeymoon and are going to be celebrating our 39th anniversary soon. We now own two homes in Englewood

Wonderfully Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5

We were so delighted with this home. It was incredibly comfortable to stay in, and it made our trip so much easier. Laura and Greg were also very helpful and communicative throughout our stay. Thank you so much for letting us stay in your home!

Specific answers for this review:

• Was the listing description accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities, etc.? Yes. I'm not sure if it was mentioned in the description, but there is in fact a washer and dryer available in the utility closet in the garage. This is a complete home with everything you'd realistically need.

• Was the property clean and well-maintained? I wish my own home was so well maintained! (Alas, for having three small children.)

• Did the owner provide good customer service? Laura and Greg were very helpful and accommodating throughout our trip.

• Would you recommend this property to your friends or relatives? My wife's sister stayed with other family in town while we were there, and she was very jealous of our accommodations. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this home to anyone.

• What activities, attractions and restaurants did you like or dislike nearby? As I think back on our trip, one of the highlights was just having the time to sit and drink a quiet cup of coffee at the kitchen table each morning with the patio doors open and a warm breeze coming in over the water. There was just so much comfort and relaxation in this home. Beyond that, Englewood is a cute beach town that's not too far from larger towns nearby. It's a lovely place to stay.

Cozy is Correct!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this home. The description of the home and property is exactly what we experienced. The interior of the home is clean, updated, well-appointed and contained all we needed to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. We also enjoyed canoeing in the canal through the direct water access. It was very peaceful, serene and quiet. Not to mention having breakfast on the patio with views of the canal. This home has everything you need for a quiet, peaceful and relaxing stay in Englewood.

Laura was quick to respond to texts, emails or phone calls. We had no issues to report however we were looking for recommendations and she provided them. The location of this home could also not be any better. A short 7-minute drive to Manasota Key and you're on the gulf beaches enjoying the sun, sand, shells and if you look hard enough, a shark's tooth. There are plenty of dining options in the area as well from Tiki Bars to fine dining, seafood, Italian, Bar-B-Q and even an awesome mexican food truck. Drive a little further and you're in Venice! I can't wait to return!

Just a great house to get away too

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this house for our get away from the northeast for our 3 wedding anniversary. The house is just perfect! If something was wrong or you had questions, the owns were very easy to get in contact with. It is a great location to all the things you need. The stores, restaurant's and outdoor activities are just minutes away. If I were someone looking for a place to visit Florida with family, I would recommend this place before any hotel any day.
