Manager info

Year Purchased: 2003

About: Owners, Ken and Sue are from New Jersey. Ken is a mechanical engineer, and Sue works in advertising. Ken is also accomplished guitarist, and member of a praise band, and good 'ole fun-time classic rock band in NJ...(always a guitar handy in the Casa unit for his and your use.) Ken says 'People really miss out on the best times of the rental season in April/May and September. The weather is so mild and the water so perfect. Plus the rates are so low. (2 weeks for the price of one in September)!' No impact thus far from the BP spill at all. No no-seeums! We don't believe Casa has ever charged a renter a hurricane day, or a cancellation due to a true family emergency.
