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 Keystone Heights

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.

Just perfect for what we needed.

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfect for us. Plenty of room for us and our guests. And we were close to every place we needed to go while we were in Florida. The owner was very helpful in providing information that was already available to us (had we bothered to look). Definitely will stay here again in the future. Bonnie

Cute & Cozy

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for us to stay as we visited nearby family for the holiday. The home was very clean and had everything we needed. Great location central to everything as well. Our only letdown was when our plans changed and we wanted it one more night but it was booked. Guess it's a good sign that it's so popular! :) We hope to be back.

Charming House in a quiet neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

We were in town for my daughter's wedding. It was a great place to relax after a long and busy day. The house was clean, everything was in order. We really enjoyed it and will likely bring our doggie with us next time.

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.
