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 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!

We really enjoyed staying at the cottage.
The cottage was lovely, nicely decorated, clean and conveniently laid out. The view of the canal from the living room area was beautiful. Temperature control for warm days and chilly nights was effortless, just the touch of a button. Beds were very comfortable. Jimmy and Laura were easy to reach by phone and no request went unanswered. We would definitely consider staying again.
Awesome location - Will come back for sure
We had a fantastic winter break where we enjoyed the quietness of the rental and the pool. The owners made sure we checked in without any issue and adjusted the pool temperature to our needs.
The location is fantastic fir the sunsets, close to the beach by car and to a grocery store.
Our only comment for 4 stars is about the bed in the master bathroom. It was too soft for our needs, but this depends on your taste.
We already booked for next year and can't wait to be back for a longer period of time!
Cute Canal Cottage
We had a great 10 days at Seahorse Cottage. The two bedroom duplex had everything we needed and a cute beachy decor. The pool was clean and a perfect temperature. We loved the view up the canal watching the manatees swim and the sunsets.
This is a very peaceful area with nearby hiking and biking trails and good neighborhood restaurants in walking distance. Also only a short drive to all Englewood and the area has to offer.
The owners were very attentive to our stay. Next time we will bring our boat.
Anniversary at Seahorse Cottage
This cottage was lovely. Jimmy and Laura made our stay Amazing. They thought of everything at this beautiful destination. The view at sunset is breathtaking. We rented both cottages so we could have the entire place for ourselves on our anniversary. It was so much more than we could have ever imagined. The pool was an extra treat. We had manatees at the boat dock our our last day. It was such a special treat. I can't say enough about what a wonderful destination this is. We will definitely be back.
Thank you owners for sharing this beautiful place.
The Seahorse's views from every window
We had everything we needed in the cottage.
Despite the touch of red tide when we were boating didn't affect our stay at this
great cottage on the canal.
The Seahorse is decorated to a tee.
Everything is clean & organized.
We enjoyed the pool as well .
Definitely will return here. TY
Beautiful Clean Retreat
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.
