We pride ourselves on setting the stage for families and individuals to have a memorable and safe vacation experience.
We are Brian and Cadie McGonagill, founders of Florida Sun Vacation Rentals and, together, with our wonderful daughters Alexandra and Ashley make up Florida Sun Vacation Rentals. We are a close knit family who love this area and simply enjoy the vacation rental business. Our mission is to provide a safe, comfortable, and enjoyable experience in our exquisite vacation rental properties while promoting the sights and businesses of the greater Tampa Bay, Clearwater, St. Petersburg, Dunedin, Palm Harbor, Tarpon Springs areas.
My wife and I met while both attending Washington State University. Go Cougs! We love to travel and vacation and have been to South America, Europe, and all parts of the United States and Canada as a family. Our extensive travels have provided us a wealth of personal experiences and expectations of what truly makes great vacation properties. Cadie holds a Bachelor’s of Arts in Hotel and Restaurant Administration and Brian holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Landscape Architecture and is a recent graduate of the Nathan M. Bisk School of Business at Florida Institute of Technology with a Master’s in Business Administration.
We’re devoted to our renters and property owners in ways that go beyond traditional customer service. We’re on a mission to help you enjoy life more – whether you’re visiting for romance or family time, or expanding your investment portfolio with real estate.
We are meticulous about the details in our rental homes so our travelers feel truly pampered; and we offer dynamic, valuable resources such as maps, phone numbers, and sightseeing suggestions via our contemporary and interactive website. We want you to feel like you are being guided by good friends who freely share tips to help you get the MOST out of your vacation time in the Palm Harbor, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Tampa, Tarpon Springs, and Dunedin areas.
Because we are travelers ourselves AND have children, we completely understand what a difference it makes to have someone on your side when you are searching for the right vacation rental in Florida. We also know how wonderful it is to have knowledgeable sight seeing suggestions after you’ve arrived. We’ve taken trips that have felt like work and vacations that flowed with ease. At Florida Sun Vacation Rentals we are passionate about providing the latter to our guests through gorgeous decor, plush bedding, modern appliances, heated swimming pools, travel resources, and more!
Our Rental Management Approach…
As rental property owners, we understand exactly what it takes to keep homes consistently filled with excellent guests. We also know that maximizing your profit requires state-of-the-art property management tools which is why we have partnered with the best in the rental property industry to make sure that:
- your guests can book quickly and conveniently
- email correspondence is detailed and prompt
- transfer of funds into your bank account is automated
In addition we market your properties where people are actively searching for rentals: VRBO, HomeAway, FlipKey, AirB&B, and more.
Because we only manage properties in our immediate area, we are able to go beyond standard customer service. I’m a craftsman and experienced construction manager, so if your home needs cosmetic updates or special care, I can help coordinate that. I’m well-connected with local contractors, pool service providers, landscapers, and other reputable vendors so you won’t get the runaround, I’ll make sure of it.
We like to keep our properties simple, elegant and functional, a place where everyone can come and gather and have a good time in the Florida Sun.
We’re so grateful you’re here. If there’s anything we can do to help you plan and enjoy the Florida vacation of your dreams, please don’t hesitate to let us know. We’re always happy to help!
