NOTE: QUOTES are for Cash, or Check Payment by Paypal must included any added charges for payment. I will send detail how to pay without additional fees.

I’ve been renting my condo since 2000 and have mainly used VRBO but have now fired them. I strongly object to VRBO adding fees to my rental rate, charging an additionial 18% to my rates. I encourage everyone not to support VRBO's policies by not renting on their site. Many new sites have surfaced which support the listing platform rather than a rental "agent" type platform with additional fees. Your choice, I've made mine!

FYI. If you are concerned about renting directly you can Confirm Ownership of a particular property, look up the property address up on Monroe County Property Taxes. My name is associated with my property. I also have local references from a local business owner and realtor, details on request. Its an extra step that can provide you with peace of mind if your unsure.

I've attempted to include all the information you may need to know about my Tower condo and the property at Kawama. If you have any other questions, please just ask.

I have another Condo at Landings of Largo which is available for rent for a minimum of 28 nights. It is currently rented from January 11 - March 9 2019.
