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, salt water 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,

Susan

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!

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 shoulder....wow!) 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! :)

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, our children, some of our grand children as well as our great grand child (11 in all) experienced a most wonderful vacation experience at the house and surrounding area. Very relaxing at the house, pool, lagoon atmosphere. Close to great restaurants, (Yucatan Beach Rest.) gift shopping, Publix and more. Short walk to the beach. The bikes were great. Very well equipped house. Highly recommend by all. Also David was very helpful with any of our questions or needs.

Ps: we also found out we are going to have another great grand child.

Thanks again Susan and Rosie

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (grandparents, kids and 2 grandchildren) stayed at SeaCrest earlier this month and just loved it. The layout is perfect (lots of privacy but great communal spaces) and the location mid-island is super convenient. We took full advantage of the dock on the canal (we borrowed 2 kayaks and a paddle board, and rented a pontoon boat one day) and spent hours in the pool. The bikes gave everyone mobility without having to drive (to the coffee shop, the grocery, the Snookbite, etc), the beach chairs with straps were easy to tote and the wheeled buggy got everything else to the beach (including a small child) in one trip. The kitchen was more than adequate (we all love to cook), and the welcome basket and flowers a thoughtful and lovely touch.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I was very nervous to rent a home, sight unseen only with pictures, for a family vacation. The house was just what I was looking for! Very close to everything, ALL the amenities are provided, and you also provided a Pack-in-Play for baby Ace. We loved renting the bikes for our daily rides on the beach. We took trip to Captiva Beach and spent the day there as well and ate lunch at Mucky Ducks and visited The Bubble Room which was awesome.

The bedrooms and baths were fantastic and big enough for all. I loved that the master bedroom was upstairs away and a quiet place from the rest of the family.

Thank you Susan for your comforting conversations scheduling our trip.

We are making plans to come back next year!

BEAUTIFUL HOME AND A GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautifully decorated and comfortably furnished. All the bathrooms are updated and the linens and towels are first quality. The beach is a short walk from the house, about a block and a half away. The owners provided beach chairs and a rolling cart to carry them as well. We really enjoyed the pool after a long hot day at the beach and spent a lot of time out back. My husband and kids fished off the dock every morning and afternoon. The kitchen was fully stocked and all the appliances were in good working condition as well as the gas grill. All and all the house was clean and well maintained.
