Why Cathy Young-Grissom chose Florida South Gulf Coast

We fell in love with the area and this house. We purchased it recently and completely renovated the interior. We LOVE this home!!!

What makes this cottage unique

One of the best beaches in the world. Typically very calm waves with amazing views and sunsets. This is a very popular area for dolphins and more sea shells than you've ever seen.

Relaxing and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

What an amazingly relaxing and beautiful place. You can do as much or as little as you want. We fished from the beach, collected shells, floated in the gulf and just took the view in, including picture perfect sunsets. Our home away from home was clean, fresh and nicely appointed and just steps from the beach. Cathy was wonderful and made sure we had everything we needed. We can't wait to come back again.

Second Visit - Another Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Our week in July was a return visit that was pure heaven. Days and nights blended into each other as we enjoyed the ultimate relaxation and solitude that this beautiful home has to offer. I almost hesitate to give such a glowing review because I really want to keep it all to myself for our next trip;) Cathy, as usual, was the ultimate professional to deal with, making this vacation hassle free. If you are looking for beautiful sunsets with the beach literally steps away, you will not be disappointed. The "cottage" is extremely comfortable, has everything you need, and is inviting. Along with the comfort of the house, the fact that the beach is not crowded will keep us coming back for more. Thanks again for sharing your beautiful home.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

The home was lovely. It was clean and very well kept. Plenty of room for 6 adults (45+). We had a couple days that we were the only people on the Beach. Beautiful spot to watch the sunset (which we did every night). We are already planning a return trip!

Relaxing Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from what felt like the most relaxing vacation we have ever had. First I must say this was one of the most immaculate homes we have ever rented, the house was spotless upon arrival and we felt right at home as soon as we unpacked. There was nothing we felt was missing from the home that we had wished was there - the kitchen, bath, etc were all fully equipped. We were met by Cathy who could not have been more pleasant or accommodating.

Although there were many wonderful restaurants in the area and the owners provided us with a listing of so much to do in the area, we were happy to sit on the deck and the private beach so as not to miss a sunset with our own private dining! The pictures are right on target and I promise you will be very happy should you decide to stay here. We are already planning our next trip back.

Wonderful vacation retreat

  • 5 of 5

We, two couples, spent a glorious two weeks at this idyllic home directly on Bonita Beach. We can not recommend it more highly. The home itself has been updated and is very comfortable. Our favorite spot was the very spacious deck from morning coffee through glorious sunsets and moonlit nights. The location was great as well, a quiet area but plenty of restaurants and other conveniences nearby. The property manager was also very helpful. We called because the patio umbrella was not working and in under two hours we had a new umbrella. Thanks Cathy. We have booked our return for winter 2016.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We were so excited to be able to find this house. We treated this house like it was our own as well as our children. The sunsets at night were absolutely amazing. We enjoyed everything this house had to offer and were looking forward to retuning. Although after our departure we were informed there were damages to a sink and were blamed for the incident. Before leaving the houses I thoroughly cleaned all bathroom sinks and counters and can say there certainly was not a crack in the sink. My children only used the sink to brush their teeth. Upon our arrival we noticed a hole in the wall behind the couch which we informed the landlord of. She did not seem to concerned. So I decided to take multiple pictures of the house due to this issue. After the house was rented out for three months and the owners of the home we arriving after our stay there were then other damages brought to our attention. We were notified by the landlord who claimed we had a large party and it could have been a guest. We had a family of five over to grill out. Being spied on by your neighbor who is the landlord is quite awkward. Here we are four months later with no before pictures of the home only after. The deposit of 500 dollars was kept with no other explanation. Shame on your landlord for her rudeness and lack of keeping closer attention to the care of your home.

Owner's Response: We certainly understand your disappointment. We take wonderful care of our home and maintain it as if we lived there full time. Our property manager has a check list and the entire house is checked for any damages both before and after guests stay in our home. All of the items damaged as a result of your stay were quite obvious and were absolutely done during your stay. Fortunately, most of the people staying in our home treat it as their own and, besides you, we have never had to withhold someone's entire deposit. Sadly, the deposit did not cover the extent of all damages.
