About Lana Lum

We are a family of three, with a 12 year old daughter. My husband was born in Europe, raised in Canada and settled here in the Tampa Bay area over 25 years ago. He is a real estate developer. I am a Floridian, grew up here, attended college in Tennessee, but came back 'home' to Florida. I own a marketing and financial lending company & enjoy my vacation rentals. We have family in Canada, Switzerland, Tennessee and Michigan. We love the water, fishing, running & traveling. We are very familiar with this area & supply you with a 'welcome package' with ample area information/maps/recommended restaurants upon your arrival- we can aslo be a great resource for any special requests for your vacation.

Lana Lum purchased this house in 2005

Why Lana Lum chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We bought this property as our second home and sold it a few years ago to a lovely family, whom asked me to continue to 'vacation rent' it for them-so I'm very familiar with the property since I fell in love with it years ago. Read the reviews... that says it all :)

What makes this house unique

In 2005, I walked around this home to the beach backyard, turned to my husband and said 'we are buying this' without even going inside. This backyard speaks for itself, with a cabana, 2 hammocks and a tiki bar we had custom built on the property.

Loved that the house was right on the beach, just a few steps from the patio to the sand.

  • 5 of 5

House had plenty of room for our family of 10 for beach vacation. Grounds were very tropical and the tiki hut added to the ambience. Great location for family pictures. Like that there was a shower outside and took advantage of the beach amenities - especially the floats for a very relaxing week at the beach.

Very nice beach house

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at several beach homes in Florida, and this one was by far the best. The house had literally everything we needed. We had several young kids on our vacation and having the property all fenced in was a huge relief. The beach was nice and uncrowded. There were a few days that we were the only ones on the beach. The backyard area was just as good as advertised. We spent a lot of time at the tiki bar and it was nice to have dinner outside every night. Lana was also great to work with.

Step on the Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home a couple weeks ago and couldn't have been more pleased! Everything was as described if not better. The pictures are an accurate representation of the property, but being there is even better! The pictures don't do it justice!

Lana was incredibly nice and accommodating from our very first conversation, until the moment we left and after.

Our group consisted of my immediately family, (mother, father, brother, sister) and their spouses and children. The house and property were perfect for us, especially loved the fenced in yard for the safety of the little ones. It would actually be difficult to find fault with anything about the house and property. The location is great, right on the beach, with many restaurants, grocery, drug and sundry stores nearby. The house was furnished inside and out with everything we could have needed. We were always pleasantly surprised when we thought something might not have been provided - it was always there! The fully equipped kitchen, loaded “beach/play” closet, and ample space left little to want. The house is lovely and well-maintained. Lana is just a text away and always responded quickly to our questions and is just as eager to take care of any little thing. The house is designed with 2 living areas and open kitchen dining area on the first floor as well as the master bedroom and bath. Two bedrooms share a bath on the second floor. The 4th bedroom is actually an efficiency apartment and is separate from the main house - good for someone in your group who wants more privacy. There are flat screen TVs in the family room and every bedroom.

The outdoor living space, easily accessible from the family room’s large triple sliding doors, has a large attractive tile/brick surfaced patio and sidewalks. The house is literally steps from the beach and Gulf. The large tiki bar is amazing, and a wonderful place to sit and enjoy the view in the shade, and also close enough to the beach where you could feel like you were part of the beach action as well.

The main thing we would do differently is not take so much from home…beach towels, beach and sand toys, floats. I think Lana has everything covered.

Thanks for everything Lana!!

My family and I absolutely loved this place! The backyard is gorgeous with the tiki hut, palm trees, hammock, etc, and as soon as you step through the gate, you are smack dab on your own stretch of peaceful, private beach. With 2 young kids, not having to lug a canopy/umbrella and tons of beach equipment was wonderful. It's so close that if you need something, you just run to the house and run back. The house itself was clean and neat, with plenty of room. It was stocked with plenty of beach toys. We couldn't have been happier!

This is gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect place for a large family get together. There were 10 adults and we had plenty of room for being together and private moments. We spent the entire weekend in the beautifully landscaped back yard/patio/tiki bar. When it says it is right on the water, believe it.

It was so beautiful and private, we left only to get groceries, ice cream and to go to church.

The kitchen had all the comforts of home. We were able to cook all our favorite foods, including fresh chocolate chip cookies! The grill was the perfect size to cook for all 10 of us at once. We loved the tiki bar and large table. We were all able to sit around the table together for dinners. There were plenty of chairs to line up for the sun, and enough shade to sit under if we wanted.

Absolutely perfect weekend! Thank you for such a lovely home!

Perfect family getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an unbelievable vacation and Lana was incredibly helpful through the entire process!! The house is adequate for the beach. The bedrooms and bathrooms are pretty nice and get the job done, nothing special, nothing to complain about. BUT THE BACK YARD IS UNBELIEVABLE! We have been going to Florida for spring break for about 30 years, never had a nicer back yard right on the beach (and since that is where you spend all of your time in Florida that is what's important to us). The two hammocks, HUGE tiki bar (awesome shady spot), lounge chairs, paver patio, beautiful sunsets from right there, huge patio table that fit our entire family, and best part (for having a 2 year old) is that it is fenced in so we didn't have to worry about our little one taking off. Gate could be opened completely up so that you felt like you were right on the beach from the comfort of your own private patio. The pictures don't do the back yard justice, it is fantastic! The only reason we wouldn't stay here in the future would be if we had more families go down there with us and needed more space.
