I am a retired accountant and my wife was a professional from the high tech industry of Silicon Valley. Motivated by our desire to share with others the natural beauty of the redwoods and creek-side setting of our Felton, weekend getaway home in the Santa Cruz mountains of California, we started renting it out in early 2011 to vacationers. Since then, we discovered our true passion in creating aesthetically pleasing, practical and comfortable "home away from home" living spaces for others to enjoy. During our annual visits with family in southwest Florida, we fell in love with the vibrancy of the Fort Lauderdale/Miami area and the beautiful beaches. Subsequently, we established other rental homes in the Santa Cruz mountains and Hollywood.
