About SeaCrest Rentals

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,


SeaCrest Rentals 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!

Great place we would stay there again!

Overall we had a great stay. We had more than enough room for the 8 of us that stayed. It was close to the beach and the additional bikes were a plus for the kids.

Really nice!

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything we could have wanted. Plenty of room, all the amenities of Home. The swimming pool was very nice and a very quiet neighborhood. The added extras of pool floats, beach chairs, cooler and the bicycles made our trip so much better too. Didn’t have to buy any extras.

Nailed it!

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start? I'm not going to list my negatives because they were so insignificant and the positives far outweigh anything that went wrong with this stay - and that has never happened. This property was ideal from the minute we walked in to the second we reluctantly pulled away for home. There is enough private space in each room for quiet time - even with two basset hounds - and whomever designed this pool - standing ovation. The decor is tasteful and current without ANY kitsch - which I enjoyed. Also the flooring is easy to keep up after a beach or pool day. Aside from all of that - the beach is a bike ride away and we rode out quite a few times including twice in the rain and my husband hasn't ridden a bike since he was a teenager - that's how awesome that ride is. Lastly so convenient to Publix and the best little hole in the wall restaurant called the Sandbar. Can you tell we loved our trip? Perfect spot to celebrate two years of mostly wedded bliss...already planning our return visit. Big THANK YOU to Susan who couldn't have been more of a pleasure to work with. Every second, 10+.

Owner's Response: Awh! Thank you SO much Natalie! Wow - I think I will never forget your wedding anniversary date!!! LOL. I am SO GLAD that you both decided to come down to the beach, even immediately after the hurricane! And, I am so happy that you both had such a good time -- AND were able to extend for those couple of days! I absolutely LOVED having you both ( well, all with the pups!). I really enjoyed getting to know you through our conversations -- I look forward to meeting you next time you come down to the beach! Again, thank you for taking the time out of your busy life to write such an honest review -- and your patience with the Internet hiccup -- XOXO, Susan

Vacation in paradise

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect, just a few minutes walk and you are on an amazing white sandy beach, everything you need for the beach is supplied, towels, beach gazebo, chairs, beach trolley to wheel it all there and a large ice box.

The house is in a perfect location and the pool gets sun nearly all day long, but there's also shade round the pool if you need it. Having your own pool is fab and it's a perfect place to relax either all day or after a day at the beach. The are loads of chairs around the pool and a wonderful large parasol to partially shade a piece of the pool from the sun.

We see turtles in the canal and even a raccoon, plenty of fish and some pretty birds too.

We rented this for 3 of us and it was very spacious indeed and could easily accommodate 2 families.

Susan was exceptional, the booking process was such a breeze and she is so helpful.

I would not hesitate to recommend this house! So book whilst your dates are free and I'm sure you won't regret it.

Owner's Response: Debbie: Thank you SO much for taking the time to share your vacation experience at the SeaCrest Home! I am just so glad that you were able to relax and enjoy your time at the beach. I am pleased that you all enjoyed our home as much as we do :) We would love to have you back again someday. Again, thank you for taking the time to review the SeaCrest Home -- I think when folks are looking on the Internet, it is so reassuring to be able to read unbiased reviews. So, Thank you! Susan

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking for a place for three weeks this summer for ourselves and our two boys (12 and 14). I was a bit nervous about it because we could only go by the pictures and we were also new to the Fort Myers area.

This home did NOT disappoint at all! In fact, I actually found the home better than the beautiful pictures online. Just as advertised, the home is a 300 yard (or 5 minute walk) to the beach. The beautiful beach, fantastic pool, and the lovely, clean home was just what we were hoping for.

And I cannot say enough about Susan (property management). She ensured our stay was enjoyable and made herself available if anything was needed.

No trickery with this home... Full five stars. It's a winner and is extremely well managed!

Owner's Response: Brian! YOU get five star review! Thank you so much for staying with us at the SeaCrest Home. It was honestly a privilege to get to know you and your family during your stay. And, so kind of you to think of us during the hurricanes. We were so fortunate to have dodged that bullet! I am so glad that you did enjoy the beach, and especially that the kids got to relax and have some nice family time. I really do hope that you come back again some day!!! Thank you for the kind review! Warm regards, Susan Moran Owner SeaCrest Rentals
