About Jimmy and Laura

We have been married 28 years and purchased this property with dreams of spending lots of retirement time here. Until then, we would like to share it with our friends and family and new friends we will meet through our rental.

Jimmy and Laura purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Jimmy and Laura chose Englewood

We purchased this property because we love the area. We enjoy the beach and fishing and Stump Pass offers both. Englewood is still "Old Florida". Stump Pass Beach is a hidden gem!

What makes this cottage unique

Fishing, beaches, water sports, spring training baseball, golfing, and gorgeous weather to name a few!

The moment we walked into Seahorse Cottage, we fell in love with the place! It looked exactly like the pictures with the added feel of comfort and coziness. The decorating was perfect for the location, the furniture was comfortable, (especially that king size bed!), the kitchen was very well supplied to accommodate our cooking and eating needs and the enclosed heated pool was only a few steps from our sliding glass door! The large yard area was very nicely decorated, complete with a gas grill, plenty of chairs, two tables and a tiki ring toss game that kept us occupied on a regular basis. We cannot say enough about the view down the canal and those absolutely beautiful sunsets over Lemon Bay! We enjoyed the convenience of having restaurants and shopping so close by and Englewood Beach was only five miles away. In addition to all these wonderful features, Jimmy and Laura were a real pleasure! Jimmy was readily available whenever we had any questions and checked with us from time to time to see how we were doing. They were also willing to accommodate us on a timing issue, and we are so grateful that they were able to do that for us. Overall, our one-month stay was a delightful experience and we look forward to coming back next year! Sean & Cathy

Englewood seahorse cottage

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we felt happy and comfortable. The place was open and clean. It was decorated in beach house style with class. We like that it felt loved, but we didn't feel like we were in someone else's house.

We brought a small boat and the marina was so close, and the fee was $12 to launch and take boat out!

We were able to boat easily to beaches and restaurants. Jimmy was helpful in giving us fishing tips, and was always available for questions. The rental was well stocked to receive guests, and we loved staying in and just enjoying the space and the view!

The bed was extremely comfortable!

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked through the door, we felt right at home. Very nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. All the amenities of home. And of course, that water view. We came to Englewood to experience the area and had plans to dine out every night but Seahorse Cottage was so comfortable we chose to stay in most nights. I would definitely recommend this gem & will return should we be in this area again.
