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 family and friends and new friends we will meet through our rentals.
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!
What makes this Cottage unique
Fishing, beaches, water sports, spring training baseball, golfing, and gorgeous weather to name a few!

Sports & Adventure Activities
We can't wait to come back to Starfish Cottage! Our family had the best time swimming in the pool and taking the boat out fishing and to the nearby beaches! The owners were in touch during our stay to make sure we had everything we needed (which we did). I can't overstate how happy we were with this property:)
Absolutely the best place we've ever rented in Englewood, Fl in 8 years!
You will want for nothing if you rent this cottage. The sunset views are spectacular over the canal, the heated pool is the perfect size, the location is close to town, yet very quiet, and the furnishings(towels, kitchen ware, furniture) are all that one needs or even wants.
The hosts, Jimmy and Laura, are attentive, gracious, and if there's ever a problem, they get it fixed immediately. They are intent on you enjoying your stay, and continually update their furnishings.Their attention to detail is apparent: upgraded, comfortable mattresses, a Keurig, large, new beach towels, new pool loungers, lots of outside seating, gas grill, etc.
There's lots of space for storing a boat or letting the kids run around, too.
We would not hesitate to recommend Starfish Cottage and would rent here again for an extended period of time in a heartbeat.
Great rental - exactly as advertised
Great rental and was exactly as advertised. Close to the beach and restaurants. Love that there was a grill available too! Very clean!
Cozy, clean, relaxing!
Terrific experience! Owners are very friendly and informative with a quick response time. The pictures didn’t do the property justice... It was super clean and cozy and the pool was perfectly relaxing after a long day at the beach. Looking forward to staying again!
