Growing up and living in New Orleans, the gulf coast of Florida has been our escape to paradise. In 2008, my husband and son talked about purchasing a vacation property and pursuing the short term rental market. I just listened to their plans with not much interest. Yes, I have to admit... I thought they had lost their minds since we had no background in the vacation rental business. Our only experience in this market was as a guest/renter with both good and bad experiences.

After countless conversations and research we made the decision to head off to the beach to find our vacation home. With all the family in tow (including the grandchildren), we made many trips and looked at lots of properties. We purchased our first vacation property at the Majestic Sun in 2008. My husband (Mike), our son (Darren) and I did a total renovation of the condo. We spent many hours of painting, pulling up carpets, building cabinets along with countless trips to the local hardware stores. As the months went by filled with construction and sore muscles, the end result was the perfect beach home for our family and yours.

Time flies... it has been 10+ years since this adventure began and we have purchased 3 additional properties and are managing 5 additional properties in Blue Mountain Beach on 30A.   As always, the properties required a complete renovation to meet the standards and brand that our guests have come to expect.

Through the years we have had the pleasure of renting our vacation properties to over hundreds of families. We have built a genuine reputation for “value and attentive personal service.” For me, it has been the most rewarding experience and I just love the interaction with all of our families. Everyone starts off as a "guest" but before you know it we have become "friends". It has been very gratifying that many families choose to return year after year and refer our condo to their friends and family.

We pride ourselves on our personal service and we feel that once you stay at one of our properties, you will be back! My motto is to always keep in mind as an owner, how I would like to be treated if I were a guest at a vacation rental. I believe the vacation rental experience is substantially more personal than staying in a cookie cutter hotel and I want you to feel confident about renting one of our properties.

Our Business Motto: “Where Southern Hospitality Meets the Beach”

So grab your beach towel...come kick back and relax with us!
