About Peter Kupovics

We have always dreamed of having a wonderful home near the beach, and this is it! I grew up in Canada, and in Australia, so I have experienced living by the beach, but certainly miss it while living in Canada.

Peter Kupovics purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Peter Kupovics chose Englewood

We have been travelling to this area since 2002, and have fallen in love with this place. It is quiet, but close to great restaurants and night life in Venice. You can still travel to Disney area for day trips. But this Old Florida charm, provides comfort to your soul.

What makes this cottage unique

Old Florida Charm. Comfortable home. Spacious and modern. And I have palm trees!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family! The owner was great to work with and the beach is super close! The house has a beachy feel to it and has plenty of beds. And our kids loved having a pool/ping pong table to play on. The screened in porch was ideal for a cup of coffee early in the morning before the day got started. Hope to stay at this home again! Thank you Peter!

The Perfect Beach House!!

  • 5 of 5

I've been meaning to write a review about my stay at Peter's magical beach house last fall. Everything about this house and the area was just perfect. I had rented a couple of others houses online the turned out to be disappointing so when I arrived at Peter's house I was so delightfully relieved at how clean, peaceful, and comfortable everything was and how absolutely perfect the location was so close to my favorite beach. World class sunsets, morning yoga on the sun porch, beautiful meals and restful sleep... I would love to return again. This house also has one of the most gorgeous trees I've ever seen in the front yard and such a feeling of goodness to it.

Great Location. Great Value.

  • 4 of 5

This was our first experience finding and renting a vacation house. We originally wanted a beach front property but found them already booked and way out of our price range.

Peter's house is not on the beach, but the next best thing. Only a 5 minute drive or a 15-20 minute easy walk. The neighborhood is a nice and quiet residential area with well kept properties. Peter's house was clean and it was obvious he has had it updated. It was very nice and the screened-in porch was great for evening cookouts and relaxing.

We had 8 adults and 1 small child, so the sleeping was a little cramped, but doable. Probably best for only 6 adults.

The rental fee was very reasonable and fair and Peter has been great to work with. I would recommend his house to others and we may come back again.

Englewood Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the last week of July at Peter's place. The House was ideal for our family of 8. The beach is close and the house was very comfortable. Location is convenient to Venice and Englewood beaches. We were very pleased with the location and amenities. The game room and screened lanai made room for everyone to enjoy.

Quiet comfortable cottage

  • 4 of 5

Thank you Peter, for giving us the opportunity to rent your lovely home. We loved it here! Beds were comfortable and the house is within walking distance to the beach. For the kids they loved playing with the Legos and the big kids (Adults) loved playing billard and playing games in the evening when the kids went to sleep. TV for me and my family was not important!

We enjoyed very much fishing, even though we had no luck.

Every time we went to the beach, I got everyone looking for shark teeth. They had so much fun doing it.

One thing that I personnally didn't like, was that the WIFI that is directly next to the bed. As a suggestion; i would put it on top of the shelf, from the livingroom unit.

Other than that, we love it there! In the near future we would love to rent your place again!! Thank you.....
