About Howard and Carole Currid

Howie was born and raised in Northern New Jersey (Colonia). Carole was born and raised in Southern Connecticut (Greenwich). We are both retired and try to travel as often as we can.

Howard and Carole Currid purchased this house in 1996

Why Howard and Carole Currid chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We love our Hernando Beach house. It is peaceful and relaxing but close enough to everything so as not to be remote. We found we were not using the house as often as we thought we would and it just sat there empty so we decided to turn it into a vacation home for other people to enjoy.

What makes this house unique

Direct access to the Gulf of Mexico. Bring your boat or rent a pontoon boat and you can spend your day out on the Gulf. Rentals are available just at the beginning of the street. Solar heated pool which helps extend the swimming season. Shrimp boats pass every evening on their way out to the Gulf and return in the morning. Dolphins are seen on a regular basis in the canals and I have seen a mother Manatee and her baby right at the dock.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you to our Host and Hostess for being so helpful. The house was spotless and beautiful. Everything we needed was there. Will definitely return.

Absolutely loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The owners and the home are nothing short of amazing. Kitchen is stocked with anything you need to cook with. The pool and outside area is absolutely the best. While here the water line on the hot water heater burst and I was away with the kids. My wife found it called the owners and this was fixed within 30 mins. They even advised us of some of the best local places to eat and turned out that each of them was VERY good. Overall I will rate this place as 5 star and I only have one complaint about the home and that is more of a personal preference. The bed in the master was very very firm and I like my bed more soft. Again that is a personal preference. Our only other issue is that the area was almost to quite and relaxing LOL at least for the kids. We did end up having to drive a ways to entertain them a couple days. OH the local theater is AWESOME! Reclining seats with cheap tickets...like $3 for new movies and something like $6 for 3d movies...new releases even. I can not think of anything else about the vacation that we did not enjoy. If you are hesitating about booking....dont worry Great Owners and Great House.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the great review. Even though you experienced a minor flood from the broken hose on the hot water tank. Rebecca ended up mopping up most of the water before we even got there. Many thanks Rebecca. The bed is too firm for me too but Howie thinks it's perfect🙄. Thank you for leaving the house in such great condition. Your family is welcome back anytime. Carole

A great place to chill out and relax

  • 5 of 5

After two weeks of travelling around, it was wonderful to relax completely in this very comfortable house (the bed being especially comfortable). The house had ample seating with five sofas, plus tall chairs around the kitchen counter and a table and chairs, and also another table and chairs in the dinning area. There was also an abundance of towels etc., and everything that we needed. The house was very clean and tidy with good air conditioning and fans. The pool area contained plenty of chairs, a table and a BBQ, plus more chairs outside by the dock, and several floating aids for the pool. It was a great place to relax with a book and go for a dip in the pool when you got too hot, or just sit with a drink in the evening and watch the boats go by (even some dolphins occasionally).

The local area has some good places to eat and drink (we especially like Brian's Place and Zig Zag Scallop) There are also plenty of shops and restaurants only about 10 minutes away along US19.

There is a small beach area about 15 minutes away on Pine Island which is a great place to watch the sunset.

Overall, a wonderful two weeks holiday.

Great, relaxing family March break

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed here for 10 days, during March break.

The house is situated on a quiet street and backs on to the canals of the area.

The owners were very accommodating before our arrival and while we were there. Everything that you'd need while on vacation was supplied for us while we were there.

The luxury of having the pool was great. For beach goers, a nice little public beach is about a 15 minute drive from the house.

There are a number of little restaurants in the immediate area, and unlimited options of food and shopping about a ten minute drive from the house.

The house was also very clean and met all of our ecpectations.

Overall it was a great rental experience, and if we are ever in the area again we would definitely consider staying here again.

Very comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

Carole was great to work with. House was well furnished, well stocked & very comfortable. Loved sitting out by the pool & watching the boats go by in the canal. Would love to return for longer than the week that we stayed and in warmer weather where we could enjoy the pool.

Enjoyable Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 2 weeks at this home and found our stay to be very enjoyable. The home is extremely clean and well-cared for. We enjoyed sitting by the crystal clear pool in the screened in lanai as we watched passing boats and wildlife. On daily walks, the neighbors were always friendly, waving and smiling and at night, we could listen to porpoises swim through the channel. When we needed a replacement coffee-maker, Carol brought one to us the same day. We took in several local attractions as well as large theme parks but enjoyed the Bayport Safari River Cruise the best where we saw at least a dozen manatees. Bayport Inn, also, had the best "all you can eat" fish every day, all day. If we return to Hernando Beach, we will definitely stay here if there is an opening in their schedule! Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely home.

Owner's Response: Thank you Connie. I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay at our Hernando Beach property. You are definitely welcome back and hopefully will come back to Hernando Beach. Thanks for the info on the Safari Cruise. I didn't know anything about it. Also, onaware that Bayport had resumed their all-you-can-eat delicious fish fry dinner again. It. Is truly a peaceful place.
