About Carmella John owner/property manager

Much love and care goes into the presentation and upkeep of my home. This home was bought by my Dad 6 years ago. He was getting on in age so we tried to talk him out of buying a house but he wouldn't listen. I was his caregiver for 5 years until he passed away and left the home to me. I knew the expenses and upkeep of the home were pricey so I decided to try VRBO. It saved me from having to sell. I live in this house when not renting so I'm a bit different than other VRBO etc. users. I try to keep my calendar undated but at times that is impossible. I also like to speak or email with the person who is inquiring to book. I am very selective but completely fair when renting my home. My choice is made by how comfortable I am with the purpose of the use of the house. I will not rent to anyone looking for a venue for a party, wedding etc. unless discussed first. I am 67 years old and do all the prep and work myself to cut costs. The landscaper is the only person I pay unless something breaks and needs replacement. I am very proud of my accomplishments and honored my Dad by naming the house Andy's Place. Yes Andrew, (daddy) I know your smiling down at me. You are all welcome, just speak to me!

Why Carmella John owner/property manager chose Margate

It is fully stocked and very neat and clean. There are no false pictures or misrepresentations of any kind. I am 15 minutes away in case of emergencies and respond immediately. If the weather in inclement the large patio still allows you to sit outside and chat or have a meal and listen to music if you'd like. The neighborhood is very quiet and safe. If you want to beach it, the ride is 20 minutes away, and yes I provide chairs, boogie boards, ice packs, beach towels, umbrella and coolers. All I ask is how you found it is how you return it.

What makes this house unique

Ideal pool setting, close to stores, theaters, restaurants, etc. In a hotel you are confined to one room and everything is costly, in my home you have the choice of eating in and planning your day according to your mood and the weather.

The covered patio is great, you have the option of sitting in the sun or under the covered patio. If the weather is inclement you can still enjoy the outdoor patio.

Guestbook comments from the owner

These guests stayed 3 nights ( 4 adults, 2 children) . Plan was to barbecue on the beach one day then return to the house in the evening and bring a few family members for a evening enjoying the patio. Truth is they used the house as a family party venue which I said was not ok. I don't rent out my home as a venue for any kind of party. I know more people stayed in the house. It was a mess and everything in it was out of order. Simply said it has been 18 days since their check out and my home is not rentable until I get the pool water back to where it should be, which is not GREEN! I have spent countless hours, energy/manual labor, electricity and money to rectify the damage they did. I have lost income and had to file a claim for damage to my driveway. Had I realized it would take me 2 1/2 weeks and still counting I would have filed a claim for the pool also. I have not been unable to use my pool since then left. I'm off to the pool store yet again today to see what I have to do next. The green algae spots will not scrub off with the pool brush. Not to mention the temp outside is in the 90's and feeling like 100 and I have to work in that and not be able to take a dip to cool off while doing so. I am feeling very weak today after doing this yesterday! To say I'm disgusted is an understatement!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The home was much more than we expected. Everything was nice and spacious and the owner was very friendly and nice. She gave us a tour on where everything was that we would have access too to make our stay just awesome. The pool area was amazing especially after an busy day out it was great to just be able to relax pool side. At first meeting the owner to get the key was a bit of an inconvenience but after we got the personal welcome and touch she offered we would definitely do it again.

Amazing House, Wonderful Owner

  • 5 of 5

All 5 Stars. We met Carmella, the owner, on the afternoon of our first day and she walked us around the property. What a lovely home. The pool was amazing and so clean, the house was fully stocked with everything you would need (except food). We spent the days in the pool and cooking on the BBQ grill and the evenings hanging out at the picnic table next to the pool. We were in town for a Bowling Tournament so some of our friends met us at the house to hang out between competitions. There was plenty of room for the 3 couples that stayed and slept at the house. The beds were comfortable, the living space was nicely decorated, and we spent a lot of time hanging out in the gorgeous kitchen around the island on nice bar stools. Thank you for a weekend we will never forget. We will be back !!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Mary for taking the time to write a review. Your group was fabulous! Communication was great which is always helpful and you took the time to leave the house in great condition. As I say in most reviews my main concern is that the guests enjoy themselves and I know from our conversations and the thoughtful note that you left that everyone did! You know where to come for your next bowling Tournament. Best Regards to Everyone, Carmella

Beautifully maintained home in a quiet neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I visited the area for the Easter Holiday. We prefer to rent a home when possible, verses staying in a hotel room when traveling. This home was very clean, practical, organized and had everything we needed. We loved the heated pool, used it everyday and sometimes at night. The kitchen has all kinds of cooking supplies if you plan to make any meals during your stay. The neighborhood was quiet and the beds were very comfortable!

Owner's Response: Hi John, Thank you for taking the time to write a very thorough review. I'm so glad you and your family enjoyed your Easter stay at my home. It was a pleasure meeting you, your wife and daughter. The Easter card was a special surprise, thank you. You also took the time to leave the house in such nice condition which of course I always appreciate. Your family is always welcomed back. Best Regards, Carmella

Lovely house, quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Carmella met us at the house and showed us around and how to work a few things. Very friendly. The house was beautiful and spacious (just like the pictures) and the neighborhood was quiet and safe (I went running a few times) I personally loved the kitchen because I love to cook and she had every pan or utensil you would ever need!! (And quite a few spices!!) She had Beach chairs and towels. Pool area had plenty of seating in the sun or shade and I made it into the pool everyday!! Hubby and I already decided we want to come back next year! Highly recommend.

I hardly had any work to do when I got back home You and your hubby are always welcomed back, hope to see you next year for sure. Best Regards, Carmella
