Generous discounts for weekly and monthly bookings.

Le logement

It is an old tradition in Florida to throw together a tiny cottage or a fisherman's shack somewhere on the property for the enjoyment of guests and relatives. This is how my cottage began its days, and indeed, the funky construction habits of the original can still be seen in the renovated version! But it also has A/C, ceiling fans, and a small but nice bathroom (shower only). These days, the cottage is the winter retreat of Susie, my sister, a retired opera singer. Off season, it is open to guests who want privacy and Old Florida charm.

Accès des voyageurs

My street is a short, unpaved road off Stringfellow Rd. ("the" road on Pine Island, which runs 18 miles from north to south. The Cottage is at the back of the property, behind the main house and separated from it by a trellis upon which Carolina jessamine grows. Guests have sole occupancy of the cottage, including the little lanai and the secret back deck, as well as a parking space. My goal is to make you feel that Susie's Old-Florida Cottage is your home during your stay.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

I am in my Summer Headquarters in New York during the off-season, but I am always available by text or phone. My wonderful manager, Mel Meo, lives next and will answer all your questions and assist you out if you need help. The gardener comes every couple of weeks to weed and mulch.

Autres remarques

The Cottage is an older home, and it is most definitely not a motel. We are not hoteliers. This is my winter home, and it has both the charms and the annoyances of a home. You make your own bed and sweep/vacuum the floor yourself. For longer stays you can arrange with Tammy to change sheets/towels and tidy up. Otherwise, you're on your own! If such things bother you, skip it. If the idea of having osprey for neighbors sounds appealing, this is the place for you!

My 70 year old sister occupies the Cottage during the winter months, so it's important to me to keep the premises clean and neat. She is allergic to cats and dogs and cigarette smoke, so, sorry, no pets, and no smoking. Springfield Ave is a quiet neighborhood and not suitable to late night jamborees. Your neighbors work and have to get up early! If anything breaks, please let us know -- do not try to fix it yourself.

If you looking for an old Florida stay this would be the place. Access to watersports, local artisans and quiet country area. Friendly locals. We recommend warm springs one hour north or Sanbiel one hour south. Great walk through Matlacha.

Great location, quiet area, friendly neighborhood kitty, super-responsive and accommodating host, all good things! The place is exactly as described, nothing fancy but we don't need anything fancy. The bed was comfy and the space worked out great for us. Very affordable too. Thanks Ellen!

It is a cute, cozy cottage! My boyfriend and I stayed for 2 nights and it was perfect. We went to Cayo Costa for the day. The ferry that took us there was less than 10 minutes away. We explored Pine Island for a day. Went to Matlache and St. James. It was a great stay and perfect for a weekend getaway.

Ellen´s cottage ist ein kleines Juwel , so gemütlich und es ist so zentral gelegen , um von dort die beaches der gulf coast zu erkunden. Shopping - malls sind ganz in der Nähe, und auch auf Pine Island gibt es gute boat trips, andere Inseln in der Nähe zu erkunden. Wir kommen bestimmt nochmal wieder.

I loved staying here. It was the perfect little place for a romantic getaway. Pine Island is a sweet little boating/fishing island. Ellen's place is right in the center of the island, so perfectly situated to explore. She provides practically everything needed to enjoy the area too. We were pleasantly surprised by some local mangos on our arrival. It was such a sweet gesture to start our weekend. A small word of caution for tall people. The ceiling and fans are a bit low. My boyfriend is 6'3" and the fan could definitely hit him if he wasn't careful. There is A.C. and box fans so no big deal; just be careful with the ceiling fans if you're tall. Overall the place is the perfect marina retreat. I would highly recommend this place and would definitely stay again.

Ellen's cottage is super charming! It was perfect for me and my wife. Everything was exactly as described and left nothing to be desired. We especially loved the yard and all the great plants. Only wish we could've stayed longer! Thanks Ellen!

I am a freelance writer and the editor. I love gardening and mountains and trees and animals. I play tennis and duplicate bridge. I have traveled around the world, and lived for many years in Egypt. I know what a gift it is when someone opens up their home to a traveler.

I live most of the time in an off-grid cabin in upstate New York. But since 2005, I have wintered on Pine Island in Lee County, Fl. In 2014, I finally bought a place of my own on a quiet side street on Pine Island. I fell in love with the beautiful yard, with its wonderful tropical plants and trees--so different from the northern flowers and trees I'm used too, but just as wonderful. There are two habitable buildings on the property--a 1970s single-wide trailer that has sprouted extra rooms, and a two-room fisherman's cottage in the back. The place needed a lot of work, so I've been renovating ever since, "upgrading" as I call it. And I planted citrus trees, a Gumbo Limbo tree, and a seagrape hedge that is well on the way to giving the yard the jungle feel I crave. Both buildings (I call the main house "Seagrape Escape," where I live each winter and the cottage "Susie's Old-Florida Cottage," in honor of my sister, who visits every February) are humble, but comfortable and private. I offer both homes exclusively on airbnb in the off season. If you have any questions, just ask!
