About Randy Crosby
We are a Husband & Wife who love to build homes in rare locations. We both love and enjoy Boating in the surrounding waters. We have made SW Florida home for some 18 years now. We built this home soon after we found this beautiful island. We think it is a rare diamond treasure that very few people ever find. We have built many homes ourselves but this is our Pride & Joy! It is hard to believe one can be so remote and relaxed yet still so close to the shopping, movies and restaurants we all want to find on occasion. We love the water Play Ground of this area and the endless days of perfect warm tropical weather.
Randy Crosby purchased this House in 2006

Absolute perfection, as always
We had just as wonderful a time at this property as we have every time in the past. Loved the addition of the solar torches that look like they're actually flaming! The bed upstairs just might be the most comfortable bed in the world when the island breeze is blowing. Jill is fantastic and everything about the house is designed to make you feel right at home.
Best kept secret- Incredible experience!!
I am torn to give a 5 star review, because I want to keep this little paradise our secret. I was nervous to do such an 'adventurous' vacation with my kids and the fact that I am not known for roughing it. Turned out to be the best family vacation we have ever taken and we plan to return next year. The house was awesome, I had nothing to fear. Had everything we needed and more, we loved it all, especially the private beach and all the shells, kids never got bored of hunting, wave jumping and exploring by golf cart and going up to the roof. Saw lots of wild life and beautiful sunsets. The solar worked great and Jill was the sweetest and helped answer any and all questions and point us to the best spots. We had my parents along, 3 generations and no one wanted to leave, can't say enough good things!! Cried when we left, but thankful for the experience! Thank you!!
The Sandy Seagull Hideaway is beautiful house equipped with everything needed for our 2 week stay.
Thanks to Randy for allowing us to enjoy his home on Cayo Costa. We thoroughly enjoyed the home including a cup of coffee on the front deck in the morning sun, playing games on the screened porch in the afternoon, and the roof top deck to view the sunset / stars at night. The golf cart was utilized to explore the island trails to the beach, lagoon and Cayo Costa State Park.
This was one of our most relaxing vacations. The shells are plentiful and we enjoyed watching birds at the lagoon, and dolphins at the gulf. I would highly recommend this location to those you want to experience time away from the commercialization of other locations. We rarely saw more that 2 people as we explored the island and beaches. Enjoyed our daily walks on the 7 plus miles of Cayo Costa beaches.
This is our first experience with a solar powered home and everything worked great. Randy did a great job of designing the house and had everything we needed to thoroughly enjoy our stay. Gill escorted us to the house and we appreciate her being available to help us during our stay.
We were very pleased with this home and the overall experience. everything worked in the home as advertised and it is easy to operate all the things 'new' to us like the solar power systems. We forgot to tell them when we would be arriving and the boat captain waited until the connection was made. Jill was very helpful and met us on very short notice. The beaches are great and the only people on them were from a few boat tours.
Beautiful location and home
Really gorgeous spot, very isolated and peaceful. Randy designed the house with a lot of thought and care, and it's clear that a great deal of attention was put into the maintenance and overall experience. We had a wonderful time and hope to return soon!
Extremely trustworthy - don't think, just do it
Randy is such an amazing person - easy to talk to and work with. Answered all my questions (I am type A so I had a zillion of them) and was very patient and kind with me and really cared. Thank you for everything - your truly a wonderful person!
