About Kevin Cross

Kevin was born and raised in Iowa, where he graduated from high school before moving to the suburbs of Chicago for the next 14 years. Since then, he has lived and worked in Southern California. In 2006, he married Lane in Vancouver on September 2, 2006 and their daughter Madalyn was born on July 9, 2007. Kevin enjoys the challenges and rewards of his career in education, serving as a K-12 public school teacher, principal, director, and consultant for 24 years. He loves haunting EBAY, doing Pilates, managing the family's two rental properties, getting massages, and those very special Sunday mornings when the Kid's Choir sings at church....because his daughter has the voice of an angel.

Kevin Cross purchased this condo in 1996

Why Kevin Cross chose Sunset Beach

We fell in love with the southern part of Treasure Island, which is called 'Sunset Beach' back in the early 1990's, before you could even see pictures of a vacation rental home on a computer! One night on our second 'annual' visit, we were walking out of VIP Lounge on Treasure Island, which still serves the best Mexican food, and right next door there was a real estate office with pictures of condos for sale on the island. Did I mention that I fell in love?? Well, we placed an offer on this very condo back in March of 1996 but our offer was rejected, or so we thought. About 5 months later, we received a call from the real estate agent that the owners in England had accepted our original offer and that values where actually going UP! So we hurried to make arrangements to get a loan to purchase a dreamy vacation condo: our very own 'special place' in the sun! That is why this property is so special to us and why it will always be.

A treasure on Treasure Island

  • 5 of 5

The listing was exactly as described, but only better. The modern decor was stunningly beautiful. The kitchen, although smallish, had all supplies needed to cook many enjoyed homemade meals. We bought a few products from Mazzaro's Italian Grocery and made wonderful meals in this fully stocked kitchen. Although we elected not to use the pull-out couch, our queen size inflatable mattress fit perfectly in the living room with room to spare. All linens were clean and fresh on the bed and in the bathroom. The bathroom has the most amazing tile lining the walls and the rain shower is a delight. After speaking to other patrons of the condo facility, we learned that this is possibly the only condo that houses a wonderful stackable washer and dryer. The beach was across the street but very accessible. Once across the street, it is just a few steps to white powder sand and crystal clear water. The condo facility across the street also has a small, but wonderful pool that Harbor House is allowed to use. The pool is hardly ever crowded, which makes one on one family time the best. There are no chairs at the pool, but the owner was nice enough to supply not only chairs but boogy boards as well. The owner was very reachable by telephone, text, or email with any and all questions answered in a timely manner. We cannot wait to stay at this wonderful condo again in the future and would recommend this to friends who wish to stay in the area.

Great condo with easy, close beach access!

  • 4 of 5

Our Mother/Daughter week on Sunset Beach was great-Mar.15-22! This condo was sufficient for us to prepare our own meals and heat up leftovers from some great local places! Beach access was fabulous and the location was quiet and clean. We met some super nice folks (generally from Canada, Newfoundland and northern US states escaping the cold!) staying in other units for multiple weeks-many repeat customers! Be prepared for no dishwasher but not a deal breaker for us. Easy access to local grocery, touristy shopping and eateries. If you go, don't miss the town and beaches of Pass-a-Grille! Thanks for a great place to stay!

Owner's Response: Hi Tracy, Thanks for the nice review! I do love heating up left overs from Caddy's Beachfront BBQ the most! It is simply the best! I do wish that there was room for a dishwasher as well, but there is not, I'm afraid. I am so happy that you chose my condo for your mother and daughter getaway, and that you had a great time on Sunset Beach! I look forward to your next stay in our special place in the warm sun! Best, Kevin, Owner

First Xmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I booked this condo in September for a long awaited Christmas vacation with my kids. I have to admit that I was very nervous about booking online, and particularly when not working with a chain type hotel. But, let me tell you this condo is exactly as described. It was small but clean and efficient. It was very quiet. Only neighbor we heard was one doing some renovations. Otherwise, so quiet! The beach is literally right across the street. Dolphins played in the water in the morning, sunsets were amazing, and seashells all over. We didn't even bother with the touristy boat trips. We had everything we needed right here. The condo has a fully equipped kitchen (more tools than you'll ever use!). I brought a crock pot from home, which was great because I could start lunch/dinner and be sitting by the pool while it simmered. Plus it meant many fewer pots to wash!! The Publix grocery store is very convenient as is the 7-11 and there are restaurants all over. I've already recommended this condo to my parents. My kids would have enjoyed a little more "action" than this area of the beach offers, but I just loved it! Kevin was great to work with in setting up the dates of the trip and the people at the local rental company were wonderful....helped with ideas of things to do, had great sense of humor, and made check out very quick!

Nice quiet area

  • 5 of 5

The Harbor House location was great. Located in a quiet pocket of town yet still close to everything. Condo was very clean and bright. Appreciated the little things like laundry in the room. Other residents were quiet-no loud spring breakers. Hope to return next spring. Wish I could bring warm weather back to chilly Illinois.
