About Kevin Cross

Kevin was born and raised in Iowa, where he graduated from high school before moving to the suburbs of Chicago for the next 14 years. Since then, he has lived and worked in Southern California. In 2006, he married Lane in Vancouver on September 2, 2006 and their daughter Madalyn was born on July 9, 2007. Kevin enjoys the challenges and rewards of his career in education, serving as a K-12 public school teacher, principal, director, and consultant for 24 years. He loves haunting EBAY, doing Pilates, managing the family's two rental properties, getting massages, and those very special Sunday mornings when the Kid's Choir sings at church....because his daughter has the voice of an angel.

Kevin Cross purchased this condo in 1996

Why Kevin Cross chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We fell in love with the southern part of Treasure Island, which is called 'Sunset Beach' back in the early 1990's, before you could even see pictures of a vacation rental home on a computer! One night on our second 'annual' visit, we were walking out of VIP Lounge on Treasure Island, which still serves the best Mexican food, and right next door there was a real estate office with pictures of condos for sale on the island. Did I mention that I fell in love?? Well, we placed an offer on this very condo back in March of 1996 but our offer was rejected, or so we thought. About 5 months later, we received a call from the real estate agent that the owners in England had accepted our original offer and that values where actually going UP! So we hurried to make arrangements to get a loan to purchase a dreamy vacation condo: our very own 'special place' in the sun! That is why this property is so special to us and why it will always be.

A Modern Condo with Everything You Need!

  • 5 of 5

Friends of mine stay at this condo every year just about and recommended it to us when we were looking for a place to go on vacation. They spoke so highly of it. Turns out it was everything we could have asked for and more. The kitchen is fully stocked with every cooking utensil you could need. The washer and dryer in the unit was such a bonus! We really have no complaints about this unit at all, it was wonderful! Being someone who appreciates good design and decor, I really enjoyed the little things like the acid washed concrete flooring, the doors and the counter tops. Everything is so nice about this unit, I think we're probably spoiled now.

As far as location, you're right across the beach, walking distance to 2 restaurants/bars and a 7/11. It's conveniently located to everything without being on a main road.

Beautiful place and have already begun to recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay in our special place by the sea. In addition to the acid washed concrete floors, I spent over $3000 on modern wall limestone acid washes by a local artist. The walls now look like they have been pounded by the sea waves, giving warmth and texture while maintaining a very modern look! Hope to have you back again soon! Sincerely, Kevin (Owner)

Great condo with easy, close beach access!

  • 4 of 5

Our Mother/Daughter week on Sunset Beach was great-Mar.15-22! This condo was sufficient for us to prepare our own meals and heat up leftovers from some great local places! Beach access was fabulous and the location was quiet and clean. We met some super nice folks (generally from Canada, Newfoundland and northern US states escaping the cold!) staying in other units for multiple weeks-many repeat customers! Be prepared for no dishwasher but not a deal breaker for us. Easy access to local grocery, touristy shopping and eateries. If you go, don't miss the town and beaches of Pass-a-Grille! Thanks for a great place to stay!

Owner's Response: Hi Tracy, Thanks for the nice review! I do love heating up left overs from Caddy's Beachfront BBQ the most! It is simply the best! I do wish that there was room for a dishwasher as well, but there is not, I'm afraid. I am so happy that you chose my condo for your mother and daughter getaway, and that you had a great time on Sunset Beach! I look forward to your next stay in our special place in the warm sun! Best, Kevin, Owner

First Xmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I booked this condo in September for a long awaited Christmas vacation with my kids. I have to admit that I was very nervous about booking online, and particularly when not working with a chain type hotel. But, let me tell you this condo is exactly as described. It was small but clean and efficient. It was very quiet. Only neighbor we heard was one doing some renovations. Otherwise, so quiet! The beach is literally right across the street. Dolphins played in the water in the morning, sunsets were amazing, and seashells all over. We didn't even bother with the touristy boat trips. We had everything we needed right here. The condo has a fully equipped kitchen (more tools than you'll ever use!). I brought a crock pot from home, which was great because I could start lunch/dinner and be sitting by the pool while it simmered. Plus it meant many fewer pots to wash!! The Publix grocery store is very convenient as is the 7-11 and there are restaurants all over. I've already recommended this condo to my parents. My kids would have enjoyed a little more "action" than this area of the beach offers, but I just loved it! Kevin was great to work with in setting up the dates of the trip and the people at the local rental company were wonderful....helped with ideas of things to do, had great sense of humor, and made check out very quick!

Nice quiet area

  • 5 of 5

The Harbor House location was great. Located in a quiet pocket of town yet still close to everything. Condo was very clean and bright. Appreciated the little things like laundry in the room. Other residents were quiet-no loud spring breakers. Hope to return next spring. Wish I could bring warm weather back to chilly Illinois.
