About Carmella John owner/property manager

Much love and care goes into the presentation and upkeep of my home. This home was bought by my Dad 6 years ago. He was getting on in age so we tried to talk him out of buying a house but he wouldn't listen. I was his caregiver for 5 years until he passed away and left the home to me. I knew the expenses and upkeep of the home were pricey so I decided to try VRBO. It saved me from having to sell. I live in this house when not renting so I'm a bit different than other VRBO etc. users. I try to keep my calendar undated but at times that is impossible. I also like to speak or email with the person who is inquiring to book. I am very selective but completely fair when renting my home. My choice is made by how comfortable I am with the purpose of the use of the house. I will not rent to anyone looking for a venue for a party, wedding etc. unless discussed first. I am 67 years old and do all the prep and work myself to cut costs. The landscaper is the only person I pay unless something breaks and needs replacement. I am very proud of my accomplishments and honored my Dad by naming the house Andy's Place. Yes Andrew, (daddy) I know your smiling down at me. You are all welcome, just speak to me!

Why Carmella John owner/property manager chose Margate

It is fully stocked and very neat and clean. There are no false pictures or misrepresentations of any kind. I am 15 minutes away in case of emergencies and respond immediately. If the weather in inclement the large patio still allows you to sit outside and chat or have a meal and listen to music if you'd like. The neighborhood is very quiet and safe. If you want to beach it, the ride is 20 minutes away, and yes I provide chairs, boogie boards, ice packs, beach towels, umbrella and coolers. All I ask is how you found it is how you return it.

What makes this house unique

Ideal pool setting, close to stores, theaters, restaurants, etc. In a hotel you are confined to one room and everything is costly, in my home you have the choice of eating in and planning your day according to your mood and the weather.

The covered patio is great, you have the option of sitting in the sun or under the covered patio. If the weather is inclement you can still enjoy the outdoor patio.

Guestbook comments from the owner

These guests stayed 3 nights ( 4 adults, 2 children) . Plan was to barbecue on the beach one day then return to the house in the evening and bring a few family members for a evening enjoying the patio. Truth is they used the house as a family party venue which I said was not ok. I don't rent out my home as a venue for any kind of party. I know more people stayed in the house. It was a mess and everything in it was out of order. Simply said it has been 18 days since their check out and my home is not rentable until I get the pool water back to where it should be, which is not GREEN! I have spent countless hours, energy/manual labor, electricity and money to rectify the damage they did. I have lost income and had to file a claim for damage to my driveway. Had I realized it would take me 2 1/2 weeks and still counting I would have filed a claim for the pool also. I have not been unable to use my pool since then left. I'm off to the pool store yet again today to see what I have to do next. The green algae spots will not scrub off with the pool brush. Not to mention the temp outside is in the 90's and feeling like 100 and I have to work in that and not be able to take a dip to cool off while doing so. I am feeling very weak today after doing this yesterday! To say I'm disgusted is an understatement!

Wonderful week !

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Carmella for allowing us the use of your wonderful home. Much better in real life than the pictures show. A lovely peaceful neighbourhood, plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. We loved the pool, warm and large and a great place just to sit and relax after a day sightseeing and sunbathing on the beach. Every amenity was available and more. Plenty of space for everyone and the beds nice and comfy. Hopefully we left it in an exceptable condition at the end of our stay. If we ever venture back to the warmer climes of Fort Lauderdale again we will be heading straight back to your lovely property.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The home was much more than we expected. Everything was nice and spacious and the owner was very friendly and nice. She gave us a tour on where everything was that we would have access too to make our stay just awesome. The pool area was amazing especially after an busy day out it was great to just be able to relax pool side. At first meeting the owner to get the key was a bit of an inconvenience but after we got the personal welcome and touch she offered we would definitely do it again.
