About Rosie

Hi! My name is Susan. I grew up in Mount Prospect Illinois and attended Prospect High School. Later I attended Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where I studied bio-medical engineering... but not for long! I ended up graduating with a bouquet of credits -- that somehow melded into a BSBA in Marketing and Psychology. During my senior year I was visiting home and happened to meet a wonderful man from the West of Ireland. He had come to Chicago to see where he had been born. Tom was born in Chicago but moved to County Mayo, Ireland when he was two years old.

Long story short, that Irish accent melted my heart, and we have been married for over 25 years now. We have two lovely children and two dogs --

Our fist born is Sarah. She attends Indiana University studying Psychology and Business. Our son, Michael, is 18 now and entering his senior year of high school where he is breaking hearts, playing football as well as tennis. He has not yet decided on a college, but is getting both nervous and excited to leave the nest.

Lili is our 3 year old Maltipoo, and Whinnie is our 6 year old Shnoodle.

We bought The SeaCrest Home in 2004 because we loved all the windows, the high ceilings and the lush surroundings. We added the back lanai, sundeck, pool, and tiki bar area. Being on the water and having the opportunity to jump right on your boat in the backyard is a fabulous benefit - jet skis are fun too!

We really liked that the road was a dead end road, quiet and serene retreat--

Over the years we have had the privilege of meeting so many wonderful guests that now feel like family. We truly look forward to your arrival, and are proud to share our little piece of heaven with all of you - proud that our home is your home away from home.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for touching our lives and our family and making this place so special.

Wishing God's Blessings upon you and yours,


Rosie purchased this house in 2004

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hello(actually, unfortunately goodbye) from the V's.

Needless to say, we owe you a huge thank you because this house was fantastic, times a million. Perfect place to hang at the pool and a really nice walk to the beach.

There were six of us and it was still very spacious!

Enjoy your stay. Thanks!

Stunning Waterfront Pool Home with Dock
average rating of 4.75 based on 34 reviews

Everything we had hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

Don't hesitate to stay in this wonderful home! We took our kids and grandkids for a trip to Ft Myers Beach and rented this lovely home. It was perfect. Our 4 yr old granddaughter learned to swim in the pool and we were happy with everything this home had to offer. The beach was just a short walk away and the owners provided many things to use while at the beach or the pool! We used Uber to travel around or the bikes that were provided as the grocery was just a mile or so away. None of us were ready to leave after a week, but back to reality. Thank you, Rosie, for answering all the questions this gal had :) This trip was truly a memory maker!

" Phenomenal Vacation Home"

  • 5 of 5

We were able to view this home while staying in a different property on the beach. We were looking for a rental for winter of 2018. This home is absolutely immaculate, very well maintained, and fully stocked. The house is exceptionally close to the beach. The pool was beautiful!

We were surprised that the photos online did not represent the home better -- but it was a PLEASANT surprise!! Don't hesitate to rent this home.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a great family vacation. The house is exactly what we needed. We had two families in the house for 8 days. There was plenty of space for everyone. The pool was great for in the evenings when the ocean was to cold. The cart & beach chairs were great, we used them everyday. The bikes was a great added bonus, our teenage boys rode them everyday. It was a nice quite relaxing vacation, the boys could come & go and we did not have to worry about them. We did not adventure away from the house & beach much, since we had everything we needed right there.

The house and everything is just like the pictures show it!

Thank you for sharing your home with us we hope to comeback again.

Above and way beyond our expectations

  • 5 of 5

My husband found this property merely by accident while researching rentals in Seacrest Beach (near Rosemary Beach) Florida. He was total intrigued with the unique architecture of the house, gorgeous outside pool area and boat dock and lift. We hadn't consider coming down to Ft. Myers Beach but upon further reflection we decided we wanted to experience this unique place along with the ability to explore all the waterways in the area. And boy, oh, boy, are we glad we did.

How does one begin to describe the magical spell this house casts over you? It started the minute we walked through the front door . . .the calming pastel colors, the high ceilings, the unique room angles, all the windows bathing the place in natural light, all struck just the right cord within us. We immediately felt a sense of tranquility and peacefulness which instantaneously started us to relax and unwind. Oh, and let's not forget the effect the pool area has with its lush tropical foliage and constantly gurgling water has on your feeling of well being.

After unpacking, we immediately felt right at home here at 196 Dundee. It is immaculately taken care of, the kitchen well stocked with everything you need to make meals to be eaten alfresco, the bed and luxurious linens a comfortable delight, all the beach and pool items supplied even down to the Bicycles made our stay trouble free, we wanted for nothing.

Working with Rosie on all the details of our stay was a pleasure. She took very good care of us before we arrived and once here, David and Janice, were available if we had any questions or problems. It was a seemless operation.

We brought our little 10ft. Boat called a CraigCat with us and boat lift and dock served our purposes perfectly. We were able at a moments notices to take off and explore Estereo Bay and the gulf, observe many species of birds (including a bald eagle) in their natural habitats and rookeries, follow some playful Dolphins, trek over the Sanibel where we had a delightful lunch of fresh grouper tacos at Grandma Dots in the Marina, watch tremendously colorful sunsets, and putter over to our favorite dock and dine restaurant, the Bay Front (located right behind the Publix) where they have a wonderful early dinner menu (4-6pm) and also 1/2 price drinks and apps at happy hour 3-6pm.

To sum it up, Seacrest Home exceeded our expectations on every level and we cannot wait to return to this little slice of paradise

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home so relaxing and it's the little things Rosie does that makes you feel so welcome. Beach chairs toys bikes cooler cart everything you need. Short walk to the beach we had our three and a half year old granddaughter and it was an easy walk. We stayed the week of 9/3 to 9/10/2016 wonderful family vacation. Six adults one child and two dogs and still plenty of room! The washer wasnt working and Rosie did everything possible to make it up to us in the end we chose a late check out. She offered the weekend but we couldn't stay as we had to fly home on Sunday. If I could have stayed I would have. The tiki bar was a fun place we had rain one night and just went to the tiki bar and played games. We spent our evenings in the pool and grilling out. I would recommend this home to anyone who just wants to relax and have a great place to stay. Thank you Rosie for making our vacation a great one!!!

An AMAZING stay and vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and another couple had the chance to stay at this wonderful SeaCrest property in Fort Myers Beach Florida. It went above and beyond our expectations. There was a nice warm welcome, snacks, and refreshments upon arrival. There was everything we needed for a wonderful vacation at the home. Previous guests had left menus and directions for some local flare and flavors! The house was spread out and had plenty of room which lead to many options of where to eat, play, and relax inside and outside the home. The pool was a nice addition after those long beach days. The beach is about a 5 minute walk and those Tommy Bahama chairs helped us relax under the sun. (And not to mention the straps to help carry them over the!) The beach cart came in handy for all beach accessories. When we would come home from the beach the boys fished right off the dock. It wasn't until later they figured out to use bread or algae to catch the fish jumping. One night we spotted 3 manatees right in the canal! A mom, baby calf, and mid sized manatee, it was a very neat experience. In the home there was a washer and dryer which came in handy during our stay. We enjoyed cards and cocktails underneath the home in the Tiki Bar. There were so many pool rafts and toys for enjoyment. We did not get to use the bikes due to the high humidity...maybe next year! Overall the experience was great!! We loved the home and have no complaints and we definitely recommend this home for it's privacy, location, amenities, and just plan GREATNESS! Fort Myers Beach was great in early June: hardly any traffic, a spread out beach scene, and cheaper restaurant prices! Thanks so much for allowing the Casale's and the Cline's to stay in your wonderful home! :)
