“Cozy Cottage”
Reviewed 29 November 2016 for a stay in August 2016
1
person found this review helpful

This was our second trip to Scott's cozy cottage. Scott is a gem to work with and very accommodating. We love the relaxed atmosphere "old world" Florida home away from home. There are plenty of towels for the bathroom, which has a generously sized shower. The kitchen is fully equipped and there's a grill outside on the pavers if you like to cook. The bedroom is quaint, with a full sized closet and the bed has a great-sleeping mattress! There are plenty of extra towels and linens in the linen closet as well as beach gear in the hall closet. The furniture in the sitting area is comfortable and there is a flat screen TV for entertainment, if needed.
The beach is a short walk from the cottage down a one-way street with only 125 steps to our spot in the sand. While snorkeling, we swam with dolphins, baby stingrays, and found starfish and sand dollars the size of dinner plates! We found fossilized shark's teeth and a plethora of sea shells while walking along the coastline. We also were fortunate to see a sea turtle's nest hatch and help release baby sea turtles with the local wildlife conservation!! We watched dolphins play as we enjoyed the most spectacular sunsets as our backdrop. This place is truly magical and we look forward to our next visit!

“Relaxing beach visit”

Scott was wonderful to work with and the house was perfect for our visit. We enjoyed the uncrowded beach and finding beautiful shells and numerous shark teeth. We will definitely be returning.

“The best family beach house ever”
Reviewed 17 August 2016 for a stay in April 2014

My wife and I stayed in this beach house with our 3 children (ages 10 and 8), and my wife's parents. We could not have enjoyed the experience more. It was our best family vacation, and this house was a big part of it. It was clean, spacious, and affordable. All of the furniture was comfortable. The amenities were perfect for the family, and being stone's throw from a beautiful beach was an experience we'll never forget. We walked the kids on the beach to Stump Pass park every day, and every day we saw, dolphins, manatees, ospreys, and even an armadillo! CANNOT. RECOMMEND. THIS. PROPERTY. HIGHLY. ENOUGH.

“Perfect house for a beach vacation.”
Reviewed 13 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

All the comforts of home. This lovely home is the perfect place for a beach vacation. House is clean and situated on a nice quiet street, nice patio and screened porch. The pool table was a great addition to the vacation. There is always something to do or you can just relax on the beautiful beach. Enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again.

“Paradise Escape”
Reviewed 4 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

I was desperately in need of true R&R and this property just steps from one of Englewood's pristine beaches and beautifully landscaped filled the bill. On a one-lane street that dead ends at the beach, the cottage was quiet, safe and comfortable, and the short walk to the beach meant witnessing a gorgeous sunset every night. Don't get me wrong; if you need activity - restaurants (Farlow's on the Water my favorite), bars, jet skis, dolphin boat tours, a variety of nearby beaches, a trip to Venice or Sarasota - you can do this, too. In short, the location is perfect for whatever your paradise vacation dreams may be.
