Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: Gone Catchin is owned by Randy and Betsy Holder and Clint and Helen Johnson. The Holders have been coming to the Cape since 1981 and the Johnsons first visit was in 1993.We have been friends since Jr. High School. We bought Gone Catchin and have had a great time putting our personal touches on our place. We love sharing our place with our kids and grandchildren and also granddogs!Our hobbies include fishing(lots),knitting,art work,reading,gardening(we have fresh herbs planted at the Cape for your enjoyment.)

Why the Owner Chose Silent Sands:
Love the old Florida feel of the Cape. The minute you arrive, you can feel yourself relaxing! Nature is abundant on the Cape. You can watch the porpoises playing and might catch site of a bald eagle overhead!The shelling is great and in the summer time the blue crab and scallops are there for the catching.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have made Gone Catchin very comfortable. Plenty of sitting room in the living room. We all love to cook, so the kitchen is very well stocked.Love to walk on the beach and love shellin. The bike trails are great. We all love to fish and have put in a granite cleaning station outside. The porch is great to sit and relax--reading a good book and listening to the ocean. If you enjoy music, we have surround sound.
