My Story

Hello from Dan and Fort Myers Beach and welcome to my website. I currently own and manage (6) six vacation properties, (5) located on Fort Myers Beach and (1) at Hidden Valley Resort in Pennsylvania an hour outside of Pittsburgh.  My main purpose in doing so is to assure you and yours a wonderful stress-free vacation full of life long family memories. My assurance to you is that you will arrive at my condo or townhome and you will view a spotless, nicely decorated, well maintained home for your stay, and it will look exactly like or even better than the pictures you are viewing and contemplating renting for your stay.

My home town is Pittsburgh and my family and I have frequented Hidden Valley Resort for 30 years, skiing, fishing, biking and sightseeing. Eleven years ago I moved to Fort Myers Beach Florida which I now call home, but of course return to Pittsburgh often to see family and friends.  I am a retired business man and live within a 10 minute walk of (4) of my condo’s and a (5) minute drive to Carlos Pointe, therefore I’m close by for any problems or needs that may arise during your stay, in the event I am traveling to Pittsburgh my cleaning crew is my back up to assure immediate attention when and if needed.

Book Directly From Me

I have been with VRBO/Homeaway for (10) years and have struggled through all of their many changes both to their web site and to their rule changes, their web site has never worked well, when they change one thing they screw up another, frankly it’s been extremely difficult dealing with Vrbo/Homeaway!  Like most internet companies they have grown and are now owned by Expedia, and little guys like me don’t matter to them anymore, worse they are now charging you the “customer” exorbitant fees to book with them in addition to what owners like me already pay. I still maintain my presence on all of the above noted web sites for maximum exposure, but decided that it was time to do my own website as renting a vacation home is a very personal and important decision, one you want to spend as little time as possible at while having a strong comfort level with who it is your dealing with.

BOOK DIRECT WITH ME AND SAVE ON ALL THE FEES CHARGED BY VRBO, HOMEAWAY, VACATIONRENTAL.COM, AIRBNB , TRIPADVISOR/FILPKEY AND OTHER SITES! I PROVIDE AN EASY AND  SIMPLE ON LINE RESERVATION WITH FULLY PROTECTED ENCRYPTED PAYMENT METHODS VIA PAYPAL, CREDIT CARD OR OF COURSE BY CHECK IF YOU PREFER, PLUS FULL CONTACT /REPLY INFORMATION ANY TIME BY EMAIL, PHONE OR TEXT.

You will find  when booking through other sites such as VRBO/Homeaway, Airbnb, TripAdvisor and so on that many of the available units are managed by Agency’s or Property Managers, and these folks don’t do it for free, they add a premium to the rental as well as many other fees, such as “amenities fee” or “booking fee” and “association fee” , I have none of these fees, and they often force you to buy nonrefundable damage insurance at an additional cost whereas I only require a fair refundable damage deposit that’s typically refunded within 14 days of your departure, so no added costs. My goal is to be fair and save you money for your upcoming vacation while still providing first class accommodations for your highly anticipated get away!
