About Ron Atkinson
We met as childhood sweethearts and have been married for over 45 plus years! During that time we raised six children. We retired and have close ties to the Washington, D.C. area where most of our children are still located.
Ron Atkinson purchased this House in 2014
Why Ron Atkinson chose Englewood South
We found this cute home and fell in love with the area. We have a pet and our fenced in yard is great. We are just minutes to the beach and love that we can get into the canal with our Kayaks right from our backyard. We believe Englewood is a hidden gem along the southwestern Florida coastline.
What makes this House unique
We found that this is a great fishing town and if you're lucky and like crabs then enjoy our crap trap and make some crab cakes! If you own a small boat, you can use our backyard canal access and you'll be in the open waters in just minutes. We really enjoy sitting in our large enclosed screen room with the Florida breezes, Flat screen TV and our very large fan overhead to keep you comfortable! A great place to create family memories.

Great Home Great Customer Service
We loved our stay at Cozy Cottage! The home comes fully equipped with just about anything you need and is conveniently close to shopping and the beach. It was clean and very well maintained. Everything was exactly as promised in the description. Ron was wonderful to work with and is quick to respond to any questions or needs you might have during your stay. We have nothing but great things to say about the home and the customer service that came with it!
So comfortable, roomy & bright!
My husband and mother in law joined me in visiting my family over the Christmas holiday. This home was a great option for us. The beds were very comfortable and the living room area had plenty of space for us all to sit. The kitchen was large enough to cook our meals and having a separate dining area both inside and out was awesome. The lanai is the definite focal point. Again, with plenty of comfortable seating for us and our guests, it was very enjoyable. We traveled with our older Lab and he enjoyed sitting in the fenced yard in the sun while also being able to keep an eye on us on the lanai. My husband took one of the kayaks out and really enjoyed that. The canal behind the house is fairly narrow but opens up to allow for plenty of opportunities to see wildlife. The neighborhood is close to a main road but was surprisingly quiet. We had an issue with the front door lock on our first night but Ron was quick to provide a solution. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this location.
The Cozy Canal Cottage was perfect for our needs. It is very clean and well provisioned. The fenced in area was great for our pup. It's in an older neighborhood, but quiet and safe. The owner was attentive, but not intrusive. It's a very comfortable home.
Very cozy place to stay
It was very cozy indeed, have a very beautiful lanai, where we spend most of our time and a big space outside for kids and pets to ran around. We happen to meet some neighbors and they are friendly but not nosy. If I may suggest that you could provide emergency numbers and addresses of nearest clinics or hospitals for human and their pets that would be great. It would be easier and could save time in emergency cases. Other than that it is a very nice place to stay.
Glad to hear that our beautiful lanai (screen room) was such a hit! Your suggestion to provide emergency info for humans and pets is an excellent suggestion. That is why under "Rental Instructions & Local Suggestions" from our Hospitality App we have several suggestions of human hospitals as well as veterinary offices & vet. emergency clinics (for after hours, weekends & holidays). We recommend our guests to download the Hospitality App prior to your stay so you will have everything you need regarding our home, local amenities & emergency information. Plus don't forget that we are available to answer any and all questions at anytime! We want our guests stay to be as pleasant as possible.
Very clean with extras items for your use.
Ron was really great at communicating with us. The house was really clean and had plenty of extras around such as beach towels shower towels kitchen needs. When we arrived the ac man was servicing the unit. Though the house stayed around 76 inside no matter the AC setting it wasn’t to bad with the over head fans going.. We can right after Alberto passed through so the grass was high For a day u til Ron had someone cut it. My only major complaint and the reason for the 3 stars was that because it was located on the canal and the storm Palmetto bugs (look up) were active I killed one in the master bedroom every night. This didn’t make my wife a happy camper. I called and had this communicated to Ron and he was getting some one to come out and spray in the next couple days. Other then the palmetto bugs (which are American Brown Cockroaches) we really enjoyed the place. We would stay there again but would maybe look for place away from the canals first just in case of the palmetto bugs.
Unfortunately these pesky Palmetto bugs made our guests not happy. We get our house sprayed every quarter for all insects (including Palmettos) but because our guests arrived just after a big storm (Alberto), the Palmettos were more active than normal. Fortunately this has never been an issue before but we understand and appreciate the feedback. On a more positive note, we're glad the our home provided the amenities our guests expected and even exceeded.
Convenient, bring ur boat!
Second time we have stayed here. Very clean and accommodating. Ron is only a phone call away if needed. We will be back!
Besides bringing your boat, we also supply two kayaks for your water adventure. We're always glad to have our guests return.
