About Bruce Carter

Here is just a quick overview of my career along with a few of Carter Vacation strengths in the rental industry.

I have been involved in the hospitality field most of my life. After graduating from Boston University back in 1986 I got my start working as a night auditor in a small hotel just outside of Boston. I quickly became fascinated with this industry and wanted to know everything about it. I enjoyed finding new ways to improve the overall experience for the guests and in doing so, I was promoted often. I learned all aspects of each department and through the years I became the General Manager of some very well-known hotels.

During my corporate career as a General Manager of a Hyatt Hotel in Tampa I had an opportunity to manage a small beach vacation rental along the shores of the Gulf. Simply put…I was hooked. This became my new passion and career.

My wife and I had stayed in vacation rentals in the past with mixed feelings about our stays, I knew there was room for improvement in the Vacation Rental business and I was excited to get started.

My team and I have worked hard and I feel our success at Carter Coastal Vacation Rentals is from having a variety of vacation property options that suites each guests needs and budget. We also have chosen to keep Carter Vacation Rentals business relatively small in order to maintain a personable connection with each of our new arrivals. I, along with my team understand the importance of anticipating the guest’s needs as well as treating each guest with complete respect during their vacation getaway.

We take great pride in serving you. We are here for you. So choose one of our properties and soon you will be enjoying a "little slice of paradise" on the beautiful barrier island.

Hope to "see ya" on the Beach

Happy Couple

  • 5 of 5

Great location, super clean and newly renovated, beautiful view from our balcony. This place had it all. We spent 3 nights and feel like we did so much. A day at the beach, (thanks for the towels and chairs!), Disney, shopping, restaurants. Loved the kitchen!! Nice being able to heat up leftovers in a real oven. It was so wonderful to just sit on the balcony with our drinks and watch the boats drive by. Wish I was there now!

My wife and I were looking for a quick weekend getaway and this was perfect for the two of us. Just as advertised. Very clean and convenient to everything. Many great restaurants within 5 minutes of the unit or you could just use the very clean kitchen.

If you are looking for an inexpensive, but classy accommodation at a beautiful beach, this is the one for you. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Best graduation present ecer

  • 5 of 5

My parents were nice enough to rent 2 rooms for 9 of my friends and we had a ball

The rooms were very neat and roomy and the location is perfect . There is a restaurant and boat rental place on site and the beach is less than 100 yards away . Wish I could live there .

Exceptional apartment and area

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for nine days and had a very memorable time. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. Bruce and Evelyn were very friendly and met all of our needs.The beach was across the street and there were numerous restaurants and shopping close by. The family owned marina next door had everything and was very entertaining. We rented bikes and rode on the beach in the morning. The dolphins swimming by in the morning and afternoon were priceless. The Pub restaurant next door was fantastic. The area itself has more of a cottage feel and not at all commercialized. I would highly recommend this property. If this property is available next year we will definitely be back. Thank you Bruce.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Newly remodeled. Great location. 50yd walk to beach. Beautiful view of back bay. Shares parking lot with a good restaurant (which we used more than I thought we would). Walls are a little thin, bed was the quality you expect. But everything else was amazing.

First time using a vaction rental

  • 5 of 5

This was a first time for my husband and I renting a vacation rental and we may never use hotels again! At least for vacations. Our rental was stylish, very clean, conveniently located to attractions, dining, shopping, and of course the beach. Yet the area was quiet and respectful in the evenings. We very much enjoyed the privacy the rental had to offer as well as great views of the bay, and dolphin sightings most mornings. Due to the bay there were comfortable breezes to sleep well with, during the day I would recommend ceiling fans the unit was difficult to keep cool, however with so many activities to do it really didn't matter as we weren't there much.

Thank you Bruce for making it such a great first experience, I would highly recommend checking out this location to all seeking a quiet get away.
