About Bruce Carter

Here is just a quick overview of my career along with a few of CVR’s strengths in the Vacation rental industry. .

I have been involved in the hospitality field most of my life. After graduating from Boston University back in 1986 I got my start working as a night auditor in a small hotel just outside of Boston. I soon became fascinated with this industry and wanted to know everything about it. I enjoyed finding ways to improve the overall experience for the guests and in doing so was promoted often. I learned all aspects of each department and through the years I was the General Manager of some well-known hotels. .

During my corporate career as a General Manager of a Hyatt Hotel in Tampa I had an opportunity to manage a small beach vacation rental along the shores of the Gulf. Simply put…I was hooked. This became my new passion and career.

My wife and I had stayed in vacation rentals in the past with mixed feelings about our stays, I knew there was room for improvement in the Vacation Rental business and I was excited to get started.

I feel our success at Carter Coastal Vacation Rentals is from having a variety of vacation property options that suites each guests needs and budget. We also have chosen to keep CVR business relatively small in order to maintain a personable connection with each of our new arrivals. I, along with my team understand the importance of anticipating the guest’s needs as well as treating each guest with complete respect during their vacation getaway.

We take great pride in serving you. We are here for you. So choose one of our properties and soon you will be enjoying a "little slice of paradise" on the beautiful barrier island.

Hope to "see ya" on the Beach

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

First things first, if you are looking for a fancy schmancy beach house, this is not the one for you. This beach house is vintage and cozy. The beach is literally right there, and it's not obnoxiously crowded. We were able to frolic around without having to deal with a ton of tourists. It was nice just being able to walk out the door and just be on the beach, or hang on the balcony and enjoy the view. My only real compliant was that the beds were a little too firm for me, and the pillows killed my neck. Other than that, this place was comfy

Beachfront bungalow

  • 5 of 5

Incredible experience!! The bungalow was amazing and the view was priceless. Well furnished with plenty of parking for our 2 cars. We were able to comfortably fit all four of us and the wifi was also fast. Right down the street are several Restraunts including an ice cream place, pub, and coffee/bagel spot. There is also a rental shop down the street that you can rent all sorts of water items. They were very friendly and we were able to rent wake boards and when we were done we left them on the beach in front of the bungalow and they came and picked them up. From the deck you have an amazing view of the sunset and get a cool ocean breeze in the morning and afternoon. We all had a great time and would highly recommend state here and we can't wait to come back!

Amazing Trip

My friends and I had a wonderful time at this rental location. The property was right on the beach and had the most gorgeous sunsets. The inside of the house was also excellent. The entire house was clean and the property manager was very welcoming and accommodating. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance of the rental. This place is great for everyone who loves the beach.

Outstanding trip

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful experience at this rental. We have stayed in the area for the past 14 years and this was the best ever. The location, the rental, and our property manager were all top notch. The interior was very clean and the owners were warm and welcoming. "Bruce," who leased us the property was great to work with and responded to our every request. He has a very relaxed, yet completely professional attitude.

Our location right on the beach with an amazing deck and view of the ocean was priceless. We stayed 1 week this past trip, but we are staying two weeks next year and our relatives are renting the twin building next door.

Overall- great for kids, honeymooners, or retirees...this property has it all...thank you, aj
