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 Florida South Central Gulf Coast

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!

GREAT STAY

  • 5 of 5

Dock access for the boat was easy. Indian mound boat ramp was just up the street. There is lots of parking area if you have a Trailer.The yard is Huge; Dogs had lots of room to run and the house is backed off from the main road. Close to anything via car or boat. Kitchen and Bathroom are cozy, but the living area is very open with the VIEWS. We were very happy to find a charcoal grill!!

Second time stay

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from our second stay at Little Cypress by the Bay. We really enjoy the cottage. Allison and Joe are extremely helpful and accommodating. The house can be deceiving from the road. It has a beautiful screened porch, overlooking a great yard. The deep-water dock is a great place to watch the sunsets, enjoy dolphins swimming in Lemon Bay, or watch to boat traffic on the ICW. It even has it’s own small beach, which is perfect for launching a kayak or paddleboard. We love staying at this perfect little spot, a five-minute drive to town’s shops and restaurants.

Stayed here the first part of March 2017. This cottage met all our needs and if you read this, you need to make arrangements to stay here if you are in Englewood or want to visit other surrounding municipalities. Easy to get anywhere and the cottage gets you away from your residential suburb/city experience.

Charming Cottge

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Little Cypress. The entire cottage is light and airy with many windows in every room. The living room is very comfortable with a very nice couch and loveseat and large TV. We enjoyed the sweeping view of the bay from the living room and lanai. The bedrooms were pleasant and roomy with comfortable beds. The grounds were well groomed and the house was impeccably clean. Allison and Joe were very nice to work with and we had absolutely no problems. We will definitely stay here again!

Perfect peaceful paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 13 nights and Allison and Joe were great to work with and very responsive to enquiries. Their home is beautiful, well kept and in the perfect location to suit all activities. A great dock on beautiful Lemon Bay for every kind of fish you could think of. My husband had a great time fishing and watching the wildlife. We had a dolphin right up at the deck which was lovely. A great porch for breakfast and sun downers to watch the amazing sunsets and whiling away the hours reading. Beaches are just 5 minutes away and are fantastic water a little cooler at this time of year but great none the less. Shopping close by and shopping malls and cinema about 20mins. Dearborn Street is a mile away and has nice restaurants and little shops. Venice is also worth a wander around. All in all a delightful spot.
