Cathy,

Thank you, thank you, thank you!  We had a wonderful stay and your home had everything we could possibly need.  Reading on the porch was my favorite thing.  Your hospitality is unmatched.

Jim and Cathy Foster,

Thank you so much for letting our family enjoy your house, especially the popsicles and wine you left for us. The beach is gorgeous and we made new friends too. We'll be back.

Hi Cathy,

We did really enjoy our week, that was the first vacation we have had in a long time that we were not ready to come home after being gone for a week.  We can not think of a thing you have forgotten to supply in the house.  It is well furnished and supplied.

I just finished the home away survey, I hope it helps with your rentals.

We plan on going back again next summer, we will be in touch.  Thanks for everything.

Cathy,

We enjoyed the week in Florida ! This was a first with our daughters and their families. I especially enjoyed watching our 6 grandkids play on the beach/gulf. Your home is just as Jamie talked about.  Maybe we can come again.

Cathy,

The house is great and so clean and organized!!!  The weather is good - a few thunderstorms late one afternoon.  We have divided our time between the beach, the pool and your wonderful porches!  The 14 beach towels have come in handy.  I have never seen a house so well stocked.  It really feels like we are staying in a friend's home instead of a beach rental. 

Thanks for all your attentiveness!!

Cathy,
 
The house was perfect for what we sought.  With two 3-yr olds, we needed the space that the house made available to us and the TV and movies in the kids' room made it an absolute thrill for them.  The items in the carport room were awesome.  One of the beach carts has a wheel that keeps coming off but we used the other one and didn't have a problem.  Having that and the chairs, buckets, shovels, and towels was totally great.  You and Jim should be commended for caring so much and I made the comment to some of the guests at the other houses and they were so jealous but I gave them your website and the will compete with folks like me in the future for your place.
 
The personal chef service we used was Lesgo Personal Chef.  Leslye Brewer and her husband, Henry, did a fantastic job for us.  It was extremely nice to have someone who cared about our experience and wanted to make our vacation a true vacation.  We set up breakfast and dinner with them for most of the week and arranged the menus ahead of time.  They were given a key to the place and were in and cooking breakfast before we arose most mornings.  I would come back from my morning runs on the walking path (nice and convenient by the way) and when I would come in, change into my swimsuit and t-shirt for the day and have coffee and read the paper they brought every morning and just chat while they were putting the finishing touches on our breakfast.  It doesn't get more relaxing than that.  We booked all week but since it was our anniversary, the splurge was worth it.
 
Let me know about the web site on Google and we will send some pictures from our visit. 
 
Again, we had a blast and look forward to doing this again as soon as we can.

Thank you for lending us your home. It made such a fun and memorable vacation for our family! Our time flew by way too fast! We can't wait to bring our boys back in a few years so they will be able to enjoy it even more - Ryan (3 years old) and Cade (4 months old). Thanks again and we hope to be back soon.

Jim and Cathy,
 
This was our third vacation at Changes in Attitude and if it is possible, it gets better every time!  This beautiful cottage is continually updated and has absolutely everything anyone could ever want.  The neighborhood is lovely and the closeness of shopping cannot be beat!  We have one 5 year old who calls this "his Florida home" and that is the feeling you get every time you walk in the door. Clean, comfortable and the perfect vacation spot!

Billy, Tiffany and Chandler Hughes, Danville, Indiana
 



April 2009

Ms. Cathy,

Oh my gosh!  Everything is wonderful!  We all love the house and can't believe how you have thought of everything that we could possibly need.  I have not seen my mother this relaxed in years.  We have been to the beach this morning and the weather is just perfect!  We have definitely found our spot in Destin.  This is the best place we have ever stayed and that is 30 years worth of places.  We feel like we are at home.  Thank you.  I just wanted to write a quick note to let you know that everything is great and we are having a ball!

Amanda

P.S. I love the bedspread in the master and was wondering if you got it down here?
 



March, 2009

Dear Jim and Cathy,

Once again, we had a wonderful time at your nice beach house! This time it was just the two of us (and the doggies too), and for a lovely two week vacation.  We wanted to mention how nice your landscaping is.  We are taking a baby Palm home that we bought and are going to try to keep it in the house as long as possible. The beach cart came in handy-we didn't notice it last year - a life-saver! We will miss it here but plan on coming next spring with the kids.

Thanks again for such a nice getaway place from everything.

Dear Jim and Cathy,

We've had a great time here this winter - it went by way too fast!  A "thank you" to both of you who have made your home a warm and comfortable place to spend Christmas.

Chuck and Shirley Wagner, Sophie too!
 



September 2008

Jim and Cathy,

We, along with Kristi and children, Tiffany, Jon and Baby James have had a wonderful three days in your lovely home. James loved his wagon ride to the beach and pool. Everything is close-beach, shopping and good eating places. We had some very relaxing, comfortable and enjoyable days here.

Thanks,

Cathy,

Thank you for all of the attention to details and the "welcome" feeling you have here. This stop was our last stop for our beach vacation, and it was memorable! My 2 five year olds loved the supply of books and games. Hope to find ourselves out this way again!

June 28, 2008

What a great house! Thank you so much for sharing!!! We've come to the Panhandle for 15 years or more and this is the first time that everything has been provided. 8 people and 3 dogs and still lots of room. We ate at the Crab Trap and The Harbor and both were excellent. We rented a pontoon boat and went to Crab Island-that was the best!!!!

Bruce, Juanita, Desiree and Kaelynn-Nic, Jason, Sherri and Nathan-plus Duke, Molly and Harley the dogs.
 



June 21, 2008

Cathy and Jim,

Thank you for sharing your cottage again this year. THis was our 3rd summer in your home and we can't imagine staying anywhere else. We love staying here because it has everything and more than we need. We added deep-sea fishing to our adventure this year. Well, actually, the guys did and loved it. We used the grill that evening to fix it for dinner. It was delicious. :o) Thanks for making our vacation so comfortable and enjoyable. We have made so many memories here.

Thanks again,

June 7, 2008

Dear Jim and Cathy,

Thank you for a wonderful week at the beach! Your beautiful home had everything we needed to enjoy our vacation with our 2 yr. old daughter. Your home was so comfortable and equipped for young children, we felt right at home. The weather was perfect every day-we could not have asked for better. We've already started talking about plans for next year! Thank you for a great vacation!

Dearest Fosters,

Truly enjoyed our stay at your wonderful beach house.  We lacked for nothing-the house was comfortable and well-equipped; the weather outstanding; the food recommended delicious; and the beach-well, the best beach around.  Hope to visit again!

Susie, David, Timothy and Daniel, Elisabeth and Jim and the dogs-Pippin, Elle and Fritz too!
 



May 17-24, 2008

Cathy –

Just wanted to drop you an email and let you know how much we enjoyed your home this past week. Everything was wonderful – what a great home!  And all enjoyed our time together – grandparents, parents, and teens (and 3 dogs).  The weather was wonderful – appreciate you ordering it for us!  Ha, ha.  We absolutely lacked for nothing at the house – wow!

We did use a few of your suggestions – shrimp from Skippers, crabcakes (and chicken salad) from Sarah K’s, and one late lunch at Fisherman’s Wharf in Destin on the way to the wonderful yarn shop in Ft. Walton called Unwind.  We even saw the new Indiana Jones movie at the theater by the Bass Pro Shop – what a nice theater.

So thank you so much and we hope to visit again,
Susie Goodrich and gang
 



May 17, 2008

Cathy and Jim, Thank you for the wonderful accommodations!  The house and all of the contents suited our family well.  The kids enjoyed playing with all of the beach toys.  The beds were comfy as well as all of the cottage's furniture.  With 2 year old quadruplets, we were unsure of how the vacation would evolve but it turned our great!!  We'll be sure to return next summer and stay again.

Thanks,

Dear Cathy and Jim,

Thank you for sharing your lovely beach house with us.  The house was perfect-comfortable and equipped with everything needed for a beach vacation.  We had a wonderful time in Destin-a break from living in the desert!  I hope we'll be able to stay again.  Thanks so much!

March 18, 2008

Dear Fosters,

Well, this place is so easy-from towels to ziploc bags...you make it such a pleasure.  My girls adored the bunkroom; my son felt like a king in the red room and we parents enjoyed every square inch.  Half the week was chilly so we were really glad to have the great family room, the movies, the games and the quick access to 30A.  The 2nd half was sunny and boy, did we appreciate the beach caddy on wheels.
This is a gem...I'm scared tell my friends....as they may scoop it up for next spring break. 

Thank you,
Missy, Paul, Charlotte, William, and Mae Mae

Cathy and Jim: 

We just want to thank you for a wonderful family vacation we had in Destin.  We loved your Beach House and everything about the area.   The house is beautiful and you have everything that a person needs for a beach vacation. You really don't need to make any improvements to the House; it's GREAT just the way it is!  The kitchen was very functional; we cooked several family meals in it.  We are planning on coming back next year but we want to be there 2 weeks instead of one.  One week wasn't long enough.  All of us really enjoyed our vacation.  Thanks so much for Everything.

Sincerely,
Sue L. Lawrence

p.s.  Tim Left a red mental insulated cup that says "Destin Florida" on it; we will just get it next year.
 



September 23, 2007

Dear Cathy & Jim:

I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful week we had at your home. Your home was completely (and I mean completely) furnished - and is decorated with the finest furnishings.  We couldn't believe how you thought of everything from children's videos and books to beach chairs and umbrellas.

It was a breeze making the reservations with you and I look forward to coming back.

September 21, 2007

We were thrilled with our vacation this summer.  So much, that we returned one month later for Labor Day weekend.  Your house was much more than we expected.  It made us feel like we were at home.  It is new and beautiful and had everything we needed besides our clothes!  You thought of every detail, from beach towels, suntan lotion to band aids.  Also, your outside storage was filled with wagons, chairs, numerous size ice chests, umbrellas and toys. This is one of the reasons we came back.  We knew we had a great house and were able to hop in the car for a quick weekend with only the clothes on our backs. We have teenagers who want some freedom and we loved the safe and secure feeling we had in the neighborhood and on the beach. It was not like a high rise where I would worry about them.  We will definitely see you next year.

Hi Cathy,
 
Your package has arrived - very impressive.  You really put together a nice package.  I found things on your map that I didn't even know were there - and I've been coming and going to the area for months now.
 
Thanks again,

August 16, 2007

Dear Cathy & Jim,

We want to thank you for opening your home to our family. We had a wonderful time!  When I spoke with you on the phone, you told me all we would need to bring is our clothes and food.  You were so correct, there wasn't a single thing I can think of that the house needs.  We just loved the location, it was easily accessible to the beach, outlet malls and grocery stores.  I and my family didn't want to leave.  I want to thank you again for allowing us to rent your home and we hope to return really soon.

Best to you and your family.

Keith & Michelle Giovengo
 



July 28, 2007

Cathy and Jim,

Thank for for letting us use your home. We had a great family vacation. You really had everything we could have imagined for every age. We loved the beach and Mykaela (5 years) loved the pool.  McKenna (5 months) was satisfied with any water. You had everything we needed for the youngest which was great.  We look forward to telling others what a great vacation we had and hopefully we'll be able to return sometime.  Go Vols!!

July 21, 2007

Jim and Cathy,

Thanks so much for letting us use your home!! We had a great time and had everything we needed right at our fingertips. We had a great time at the beach and the kids loved going for a dip in the pool on our way back to the house. Our youngest's favorite activity was putting sand in the ocean and water on the sand.  We hope to come back next year.  This was our first "REAL" family vacation and it was great. Thank you,

Shane, Jamie, Adeline, Logan, Hallie and next year, PJ too.

July 7-14, 2007

Cathy and Jim,

Thank you for all of the special touches in your beach house that make it like home. We had great weather all week-the heat index , however, was 100-106 degrees-very hot!

We had everything we needed and more than we could ever have asked for-you thought of everything.
Our granddaughters loved their rooms. Gabrielle especially loved the bunk beds and the "Star Wars " videos.
The rolling insulated cooler was a lifesaver for John.  We look forward to next year.  Thanks again,

Sandra, John, Julianne and Gabrielle

July 2007

Cathy & Jim,

We just returned home and wanted to say Thank You for a wonderful vacation.  I knew from talking to you that it was going to be nice and we were not disappointed.  You ask that I let you know of anything that you could do to make our visit better....I can not think of 1 thing!  You spoil your guests from the moment they arrive....WINE cooled in the refrigerator WOW.  There is every game, book, video and DVD imaginable.  A very nicely stocked kitchen and so many special touches in each room.  As for beach items...there was nothing that was not provided...chairs, toys, floats, coolers and enough beach towels for a small army!  (even a collection of beach hats).  We have stayed many places over the years and these things are not provided.
You have made a rental property into a warm, inviting home and it was a joy to stay there.  There is not enough space to mention all the little extras that made our vacation relaxing, I was still finding things on our last day! 

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us....

June 23, 2007

Cathy and Jim,

Thank you for sharing your home with us again this year.  We were here last year with family and came back with more family this year.

Our family member, Baylin, who is 20 months old, had everything that he needed here.  He loved the wagon, stroller and all of the sand toys.  Our daughters loved watching all of the movies at night, after long days in the sun and sand.:o) 

We would love to come back next year with more friends and family. Thanks again,

May 2007

Cathy and Jim,

We drove all the way across the country to be here and it was absolutely worth every mile!  You have a fabulous home and we appreciate your opening it to us. We couldn't have asked for a better week. Thank you so much.

May 2007

Cathy and Jim,

I just wanted to take a moment to fill in a little message here to tell you what a wonderful time we had. You absolutely thought of everything and that made our stay that much nicer. Your home is such a comfortable home away from home that our whole family settled right in. Your children's room was the greatest delight to our daughter who loved the books, toys, small table and chairs, movies and even the bed. Thank you for allowing us the pleasure of spending time here. Blessings to you and yours.

Dear Cathy and Jim,

We have been thrilled to be staying in our home on our vacation. It's like staying in a home away from home. My husband did a good job finding this. It is truly comfy with lots of space. We love the fact that everything we need is here, especially finding a gate so the baby couldn't climb the steps. Nice not to have to bring beach towels, toys, chairs, umbrellas, etcetera. Even not having to buy dish detergent, soap, plastic wrap, garbage bags, shampoo, etcetera was great. Thanks for sharing your home.

April 8, 2007

We just returned home and I couldn't wait to tell you what a wonderful time we had in your beautiful home. EVERYTHING was incredible!  The house feels and looks brand new, with every detail just perfect - from the inviting furniture to the well-stocked movies and books, to the myriad of beach supplies - we couldn't believe how you thought of everything anyone could need (we even found the band aids!). The location was great for our family - easy walk to the great beach and pool, with sidewalks for running/walking, and of course, easy access to the outlet mall.  We can't wait to rent here again!  Thanks for putting so much of yourselves into the beauty of your home!  It was so hard to leave!!  V, M, L & E
