About Kristen Phillips

As California natives it was a dream to own property at the beach. Here in Englewood we were able to realize our dream when we purchased this cottage in 2006.

Florida Dream Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Englewood, FL and Manasota Key for 10+ years as our father lives in Englewood. For the past few years we've opted to rent beach cottages on the Key. This one is by far the best one we have stayed in! The house is perfect for 2 people, and would also be perfect for 4 or a small family. Modern, yet "beachy" and all the conveniences. The kitchen is fabulous with high-end appliances and the breakfast bar. The master bath is like a spa...wait to you see the floor and the shower! We were very comfortable; also enjoying the screened-in porch and the front patio under the palms. The best part is that the house is literally steps from the beach and the beach is beautiful! The house was clean and had everything we needed including beach towels, umbrella and chairs. We will be back!

Beautiful house steps to beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. Very clean and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. This is the first time we have rented where to property was not directly on the beach and my husband was hesitant but he even felt it was close enough with only steps to walk. I enjoyed looking for shells and sharks teeth on the beach. We got to see many turtle nest and talk to the turtle patrol and even watch one little turtle try and make it to the sea. Even tropical storm Emily did not damper the stay! We took that opportunity to visit the Mote Aquarium. A great place to visit and see beautiful fish. I would highly recommend going to Landrys to eat. Food was excellent!
