Meet & Contact Susan and Jerry Keen (Managed by Dana)

My dear friends,

Jerry and I are so very happy when you spend your vacation with us!  You are our invited guests and we want you to make lifelong memories at the beach. 

We’ve been married 47 years in June of 2019. Working hard to raise and support our children, MATTHEW and JENNIFER, we expected to spend our retirement years quietly (which is not happening).  In 2008, JENNIFER had twins on New Year’s Eve; a boy and a girl, Taylor and Tyler. They adore the beach and come down every summer. They are the apples of Papa’s and GeaGea’s eyes.

My darling husband knew my lifelong dream was to have a beach cottage.  He made it his mission, when we got close to retirement, to make that dream come true!  We looked all the way from the Florida coast to Alabama, until I saw the house of my dream . . .  “Beachy Keen”.  It’s previous name was The Pelican!  It was perfect!

So, we were enjoying our fun in the sun, until a house came up for sale in the neighborhood. We were just talking on the porch, when one of us said “We could try the rental business.” Long story short - that became Susan’s Sand Castle I (SSCI). 
We later purchased a lot, and Jerry built SSCII. After that, he needed another project, so he started from scratch, and SSCIII was born.  I’ve had a ball decorating, since I want you to feel as if you’ve come home!

There went retirement, but God had other plans for us.  We’ve had a ball and met some of the nicest people we’ve ever known! 
So many blessings galore, and may God bless each of you abundantly!

P.S. Papa says, “There won’t be a SSCIV”, (even though our friends Shug and Fred say they are going to outgrow our biggest house!).
