About Allison and Joseph Yeomans

Allison and Joseph Yeomans live in Thompson, CT with our two springer spaniels, Ben and Archie. Allison is a RN who grew up in Woodstock, CT, Joe is a contractor from Cohasset, MA. Married in RI in 2004, we lead very busy lives, both continue to work full time but we still find time to travel, especially to Florida and Maine.

Allison and Joseph Yeomans purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Allison and Joseph Yeomans chose Englewood

We love the town of Englewood for its beauty, and old Florida charm. It remains a tourism centered area without the busy traffic, high-rises, and crowds of Fort Myers or Sarastoa. We started off renting seasonally here and finally found the property we were looking for. As soon as we saw the waterfront view and our first sunset we knew Cypress by the Sea was for us. We still have trouble figuring out why anyone would want to rent anywhere but Englewood.

What makes this cottage unique

"Cypress by the Sea" is a 1942 cracker house, one of the originals in the neighborhood, it is built from local cypress, no longer commercially available.

It has an authentic old Florida feel. The most beautiful sunset views and a beautiful live oak in the private large yard.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you and also thank you so much for sharing your home with us! Your home and the location was beautiful. It was the perfect vacation!! We aren't the touristy type vacationers, so this was absolutely perfect for us. Our boys were in heaven. The fish they caught were amazing! (They even caught 2 small sharks.)They fished from the dock and also went out on a kayak we rented and fished on the bay.We saw manatee and dolphins everyday! The shade tree was great as hot as it was ;-) The fireworks on July 4th were beautiful. They were everywhere :) We watched the unbelievable sunsets every night from the dock. Again - thank you so much and we will be back again next year!

Month of Bliss

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful month long vacation. We fished daily from the dock and caught plenty of Speckled Trout, Bluefish and Mullet. We were visited almost daily by manatee and porpoises. When we were not fishing we were relaxing under the shade tree in the front yard reading or admiring the spectacular sunsets from the privacy of the screened in porch. We appreciated the well stocked kitchen enabling us to prepare our meals during our lengthy stay. We are already planning our next trip!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful time! We would pinch ourselves every day -- what a view to wake up to every morning and the sunsets....unbelievable. Right out of a movie. The cottage is perfect -- comfortable and cozy. We borrowed the fishing poles and my husband rarely left the dock. So much fun sitting out there watching the dolphins and manatees - they love your sea grass - right off the dock. Birds, fish -- oh my! It's a peaceful haven and we can't wait to get back! Thanks so much for sharing this little piece of heaven with us!

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

Love the character, that this property has. The windows looking out on the bay, are absolutely beautiful. The yard is spacious and well maintained. The dock is nice and the boat ramp is right down the road. Couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. We really enjoyed our time and the home was perfect.

Private beach area- private dock- Fish, shells and sharks teeth galore

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. It's not that often to get this much privacy and land at the beach. All the comforts of home, even condiments in the frig for you. The bedrooms were very large. We shelled at the dock and found lots of lightening whelks. If you are boating, there is a great dog friendly beach near stumps pass- about a 10 minute boat ride. Check out the fish havens nearby. We didn't eat out much because the best of everything was right there at the cottage.

If your into sharks teeth, we found more and larger ones right there in the driveway. The neighbor says that the really big ones are at middle beach. We met two of the neighbors and they were so helpful and friendly.

The owners are very quick to answer a phone call and happy to help out. They also allowed us a later check out because my daughter had to see a doctor at 9 am that morning. Publix is about a 6 minute drive so that was convenient. Comfortable beds and a couple of beach chairs for your use.

To be honest, we really caught more fish off the dock than out on our boat.

We were happy to see a light at the end of the dock as well.

It was a really nice stay and we hope to be back soon.

Clean and tidy, nicely decorated, beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long summer weekend (4 days) and loved the place. Great bike rides over the bridge to the beach where you can snorkel for shells. The beds were comfortable and the cottage has every thing you need for your stay. A nice big yard to play with your dog if you have one (we don't). Tons of snook off the dock that we were unable to catch. Fun to watch them at night under the dock light. I highly recommend it. Very lovely.
