About Angela

I'm a native Floridian who grew up in the small town of Keystone Heights with lots of family and friends nearby. Having moved away and lived all over the United States, I love coming back to Keystone. Quiet, peaceful, and relaxing... and a town where everyone is warm and friendly.

Angela purchased this house in 1972

Why Angela chose Florida North East

This house is our family home. My parents raised their four daughters here. We have fond memories of learning to play softball in the back yard, eating watermelon on the back porch in the summertime, and jumping through huge piles of oak leaves every fall.

To this day, it's still the same quaint Keystone of our younger days... you can hear the owls hooting at night and spot countless native birds in the yard during the day. Friday nights you may even hear distant cheering from a high school football game. A precious place in for many reasons. We still love it!

What makes this house unique

The house is warm and cozy, spacious enough for up to 6 guests. The kitchen opens to the dining room which opens to the living room. Perfect for visiting with all your family and friends.

The natural back yard is fantastic. I just love sitting on the patio swing with a morning cup of hot tea and taking in the greenery and wildlife.

Recently renovated from floor to ceiling, the house has all new amenities, furnishings, linens and towels. Also included is wireless internet, cable TV, phone, electric and more. You can rest assured that you'll have all the comforts of home and more.

No matter what brings you to Keystone - family, friends, events, or just a getaway - the house is a great spot to settle in. You won't be disappointed.

The house was clean, organized, and well-equipped. The neighborhood was safe and friendly. Owner is friendly and very responsive. There's a binder in the dinning room with lots of useful information, there are various notes throughout with various instructions. Will definitely stay here at this house again.
