About Nanci Whitley

I've lived in Florida since 1991, from the midwest. Love the weather and outdoor lifestyle! I'm retired now and love to travel, sometimes planned, sometimes on the spur of the moment, I also have a second home, so this home can be available at a moments notice!

Nanci Whitley purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Nanci Whitley chose Palm Harbor

I bought this home because of the location (close to everything), and the view (water, water everywhere!). It has lots of large windows and sliding glass doors which are always open to the ocean breezes.

What makes this cottage unique

bring your kayak or your boat...I have a 24 ft dock. There is a marina 3 blks away that rents kayaks and boats also.

Can I give 10 out of 5 stars? Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I am so happy we ended up picking Nanci’s beautiful beach house to stay for our Florida vacation. The pictures online are great but as soon we walked in I was even more blown away. Once you Opened the front door, the house screamed beautiful beach home! From the wall decor to the blankets all the way to the door knobs this home was so beautifully perfecectly deocrated. Amazing view looking out into the backyards water from the living room and the screened in room. This home was the perfect location to all amenities such as grocery stores, gas etc. but even more perfect for our vacation as we wanted to spend time exploring different little cities. Palm coast, Flagler beach area, Ormond Beach, Daytona, and St. Augustine were all well within driving distance to visit for the day. Although I didn’t love Daytona, all the other above mentioned cities, I’ve never quite fallen in love with Florida towns like I did these cities. So much to see and explore.... Nanci was the most perfect host. Interacting with her even before we got to the home, she made you feel like you were friends and not just someone staying in her home which was really nice. She offered out so many suggestions on wonderful things to do around the area. It was nice because she gave you privacy but was always just a phone call or text away. Her home had so much space and plenty of space to put your personal belongings.. she had closet and armoire space for your clothes and plenty of space in the fridge/freezer if you wanted to buy groceries and cook during your stay. She made it known that all staples/condiments you were welcome to use if needed. Just such a sweet, nice lady opening up her home to complete strangers to help try and provide them with the best vacation possible. It was great that we were able to travel with our fur babies also. She made it feel as if they were welcome to and not a bother what so ever. I could go on and on about how wonderful our stay was and we will definitely be getting ahold of Nanci when we come back down to the area!!

The house was fine, but there was no space to put my personal belongings.

  • 2 of 5

It seemed as if the people who lived in the house simply walked out to go on vacation. There was no place to put away food or clothing, and all of their things were out and around the house.

Also, the pictures were a little misleading and not labeled. I thought the house would be on a marina or the inter-coastal, but that was about a mile or so away.

Owner's Response: I'm very sorry you were disappointed. Yes, it is our home, that's why we have all the kitchen equipment and food staples- spices, flour, sugar, coffee etc that one would never find in a strictly rental home. Since you were a single person I had a full armoire empty in the master bedroom as well as the walkin closet. The frig and freezer were also empty. The pictures definately show the home is on a canal that leads to the ICW, 3 blocks away, with a photo of the marina there.

Wonderful alternative to a hotel for the week

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a week while visiting family in the area. The house was clean, inviting, and comfortable. The home is well-appointed with everything you need.

It's nice to not have to get showered and dressed to go out for breakfast, or to be able to throw dinner on the grill for a change of pace from restaurants. Sitting outside at night watching the sun set by the canal was very relaxing.

There are many walking/biking paths nearby, and pretty much anything you need is available on Palm Coast Parkway, just minutes away.

The location was very central for us: close to St. Augustine, Flagler Beach, and Daytona Beach; and only about 90 minutes from Jacksonville and Orlando.

The owner was very responsive to the one minor issue we had, and it was fixed within a couple of hours while we were at dinner.

We enjoyed our stay and will return next time we're in the area!

My family and I had a great time and we will plan another summer at Nanci's home. The proximity to the beach and the canal access were very convenient.
