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 family and friends and new friends we will meet through our rentals.

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!

Beautiful home... everything you need. Nice pool. Back yard area offers a great place to hang out to watch the sunset and enjoy nature. Minutes from the best shark tooth beaches in the world. Laura and Jimmy are fabulous hosts and were always available if we needed them. We will be back.

Extremely clean with a beautiful view of the water.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Starfish side of the cottage while friends stayed in the adjoining cottage. We could not have asked for a better place to stay. The pictures do not do it justice. You can tell that the owners truly care about this property. Well maintained and stocked with all the essentials.

All the furniture and bedding are brand new, the decorations just add to that special coastal theme to the cottage.

This property has a pool that is shared between the cottages which we enjoyed when we returned from a day of fishing. The garden area had chairs that you could sit in, grill and over look the canal which provided a beautiful view of the fiery orange evening sunsets.

There is a dock that is easily accessible with the entrance to the Gulf being just a few feet away. There is also a great little beach area that is minutes away from the cottage.

We found a Mexican restaurant that the food (and Margarita's) was delicious. We found ourselves having to visit it for a second time while we were there.

The area had a lot of areas to shop from Publix to Walmart to great bait supply stores for those who want live bait or fishing equipment.

The owner Jimmy was quick to respond to any questions and to address any issues we may have had.

This location got placed in my favorites for VRBO rentals.

I would highly recommend this location and will definitely be back to visit again.

Awesome Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this cottage are truly accurate but can't fully capture the TLC the owners have provided. We felt as though we were guests in a 5 star hotel: quality linens, top quality beds. The cottage is very clean and well stocked, the pool and yard well cared for. The owners welcomed us our first day and periodically asked if there was anything we needed, they are very gracious hosts. Good restaurants and shopping close by. We will be back for sure.

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the Starfish Cottage for a few days and had wonderful time there.

The area is nice and quiet, perfect vacation destination for those, who is looking for quiet and private vacation time.

There is a shopping plaza in vicinity and nice Englewood beaches near by. Loved Stump Pass beach.

The cottage itself is very nice and clean, has the pool, spacious yard, off street parking space, rest/grilling area, private boat dock.

I would like to feature a beautiful view of the canal from the back yard area, great to watch the sunsets.

Strongly recommend to visit and stay.

Would be happy to get back there myself.
