About the owner: I have been offering vacation rentals in beach communities for over 20 years. I split my time between Florida and New Jersey and take personal care of the houses I offer for rental. I continually update the properties with features to help ensure that my guests have a great time.
I know the areas well where my properties are located and offer help and advice to guests. I want to do all that I can to help my guests make the most of their rental experience.
Why this property? I personally manage all of my properties, handling all of the rental bookings and ensuring that the properties are well maintained. I have a great staff available to address any repairs or improvements that are required. Supplies are checked and updated continually.
COVID protocols are followed. Every property gets thorough cleaning and disinfecting between guests' visits.
Plenty of room and a great location!
Rare find of 4 full baths and 4 real bedrooms (not a daybed stuck in a sunroom like some rentals market as a bedroom). House comes with everything you need - beach towels, coffee maker, toaster, blender, washer/dryer, outdoor grill, smart TV's in all bedrooms plus upper and lower common area. Plenty of sunny and shady spots in outdoor living area plus the dock on canal is brand new. Great location; we loved being able to walk to cabana club,restaurants, gift shop, basketball court, and park. Tip: rent bikes to easily get anywhere in KCB. They will deliver to the house but rent early during busy seasons. Mary (the owner) was understanding and easy to reach with any concerns (we had a lot of tweaks to our travel plans due to Covid travel headaches). Would rent again in a heartbeat!

Thanks for your kind remarks. I hope that you will rent one of my properties again! Best wishes to you and your family in the New Year
Very pleased with the location, the waterfront is great, and we enjoyed our stay there, if anything was not so great is compensated by other things that are great. We had easy access to the beach via the clubhouse nearby. The area is pleasant and tranquil.

Thank you for your kind remarks. I am glad that you enjoyed the property and the area. I am happy that you found that the many great features compensated for something you found ‘not so great’. I really wish, though, that you had told us what was ‘not so great’. We do our best to make every guest experience a great one.Mary
