About Jo Morrison

I live in England with my husband, dog and blind cat!! We both love to travel and now that we have retired we hope to find more time to enjoy Casa da Cova. We like the relaxed nature of both Florida and Portugal where we have made many friends and have really fallen in love with both countries. We hope that you will also enjoy this area and our home from home.

perfect family get-away

  • 4 of 5

Jo and John have a great house that fit our needs. It was spacious and well outfitted.

The kitchen was large allowing my daughter and I to work together. The living room was comfy, large doors look out onto the pool. The master ensuite was a joy. And there were small sitting areas where you could retreat to with a book.

They were perfect hosts!

Apollo Beach, Fl

Couldn't have been a better stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this property. The owners were very helpful and very communicative both before our trip and after our arrival.

The gated community of Andalucia was beautiful- we took walks and the kids rode their scooters around the neighborhood. The house was so clean and spaced out so well, it felt very warm and inviting. There was enough room for our family of three plus my parents. Even when my sister's family of six visited us, we never felt cramped in any way (the pool certainly helped with keeping the kids busy!) We were able to watch amazing sunsets over the canal and take a dip in the pool at the beginning and end of our day.

We couldn't have been happier with the location- close proximity to the grocery stores and restaurants. We enjoyed family cookouts on the gas grill and made dinners in your lovely kitchen when the weather did not cooperate. In addition, your property is located just around the corner from a wonderful restaurant- Circles- that we dined in more than once.

We are so looking forward to being back there in July!

Thank you so much,

Terri Y

Peaceful and Relaxing, wonderful sunsets

  • 5 of 5

The villa is extremely comfortable and very spacious. On a gated community in a very peaceful setting. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the sun set with a glass of wine. The villa is very nicely furnished. It has a Queen, Double and Twin beds. The TV is in the study which may be a tight fit for 6 people but was fine for the 3 of us. We enjoyed finishing from the dock. The Publix for your food shopping is very convenient. We made full use of the BBQ. Tampa/Busch Gardens/Tampa Bay Downs are great places to visit, only 45 minutes or so away. We enjoyed the Manatee Centre just of few minutes away. The information provided by the Owner was accurate and helpful. I would certainly recommend this accommodation.
