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.

Super cute condo, close to beach!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean, really close to the beach, on a quite street, and accommodated two people comfortably. It was well equipped with a washer/dryer, kitchen utensils, bathroom towels, beach chairs, and more.

We noticed that the freezer only had ice trays, but, If they had reusable ice packs, that would work. Overall the condo was excellent and we loved it. But one last thing... get a lock box instead of driving back and forth to the travel resort office to get the keys and car pass, it is the 90’s after all. :)

We loved it!!!!!

Exactly what we require, small efficient and close to everything we wanted.

  • 4 of 5

Nice clean and quiet location. Close to all we wanted to see and do. Wonderful on pricing. Learned that we don't like a rain shower head. When you need to replace the fridge, I suggest you get something with a more usable freezer. It is a giant struggle to get a small bag of ice in and out.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review, Bart. I’m glad you enjoyed our ground floor condo’s great location and quiet neighborhood! I’m sorry that you didn’t like the luxury “rain” shower head, that drops hundreds of streams of rain from the ceiling of the walk in “floor to ceiling” glass shower; I know some people prefer a standard shower head instead. As for the freezer, I agree that LG should have designed this modern, Euro styled freezer with 3 drawers instead of 4, so that one of the drawers is a little wider. Everyone needs ice at the beach, and I always make sure to have plenty of ice cube trays in the freezer for guests, but I know some people prefer to buy bags of ice. The manager at the local property management company I use for keys, cleaning and any on-site emergencies told me that she really enjoyed her interactions with you, and said that you were a very polite and interesting fellow to meet. Thanks so much for taking the time to review your stay at our family’s Sunset Beach condo on Treasure Island. We are glad that you and your wife had a nice visit and that you enjoyed your trip. Please come back again soon! Best, Kevin

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.
