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 Oyster Creek

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 Clean Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at the Starfish and either friends or family were in the adjoining place (Sea Horse). When we walked into the Starfish the place looked clean and smelled amazing. It is decorated so beautifully with a nautical motif. The pool that is enclosed in a screen between the two places was also clean and very inviting. We all jumped in and the temperature was perfect. We had the unfortunate Red Tide while we were there and that did put a damper on our "water plans", but we made the best of it by visiting a local brewery, local restaurants and utilizing the pool. I will definitely be back.

Such a wonderful place to stay! You will love it.

  • 5 of 5

We happened to stumble upon this place online and I’m so happy we did. It has every bit of home that you need, and a little extra too. The dock is very convenient and takes less than 5 minutes to get to open water and great fishing close by. I have NO complaints. Only the best stuff to say. We will be back next year and we already can’t wait!!!

Another great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Even though the weather wasn’t great for Memorial Day weekend we enjoyed another great stay in the Seahorse cottage. The pool was heated and the house was immaculate. Jimmy and Laura spare no expense for comfort. Everything you could possibly need is provided. It’s such a beautiful and relaxing home. We are looking forward to returning for a week in July!

Exceeded our expectations...had a wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great area, very clean and comfy. Close to beaches and shopping, but quiet neighborhood. On the canal, which was wonderful to sit and enjoy with your morning coffee or afternoon beverage, while taking in the view and local bird species. The heated pool was a relaxing and added treat after a day at the beach. Everything we needed was available or easy to access. Such a treat...we will stay again, for sure!

Great Little Find

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, comfortable and immaculate. Had everything you could possibly need. Looks so much nicer than it appears in pictures. Dock is a little tight if there are two boats there. Our 22’ Pathfinder would not fit if there were two boats there. We will definitely go back, soon. Owners were great.
