All About Cathy

A special back story all about me!

At over 60 years old, I found myself suddenly single.  My “forever” was not forever anymore.

My corporate career was ended in a moment, someone else’s decision ended my 40 year healthcare management career.

Now I could have gone back, sought another job in the same field.   But I was done. 

Very late in life I realized  that I had been living everyone else’s dreams.   It was time to live my own dreams.   

First on my dream  list was living near the beach.   Second was having a home that friends would look forward to visiting, that I would love waking up in, and was filled with happiness, light and color.   

I decided on purchasing a home that would allow AirBNB guests privacy and all the amenities of beach life without being right on the beach.    A private oasis to escape the hub bub, the busyness and traffic of crowded beach days.

This house was purchased with all that in mind, and the Charming Cottage was created in November of 2020.  I had my first guests that month!!!

Since then I have had the pleasure of greeting and hosting dozens and dozens of happy couples, friends, and a few single travelers along the way.  

With my knack for customer service and eye for hospitality, we were booked out solid, and I recently decided to expand.

In July of 2022, the Vintage Artsy Home was opened for guests, and has already received multiple 5 Star reviews.

What else was on my list for my dreams?  Having my horse, Rebel, in the country and within driving distance.  Rebel is happily pasturing in south Fairhope, where I visit  and ride several times a week. He is an energetic 22 as I write this, and he is my outdoor buddy.  We get to ride through cotton fields, cow pastures, over ponds, and all the way to the bay on the shores of Fairhope Al. 

Also in my dreams was having access to social life, cute little restaurants, friends, places to walk and enjoy the outdoors, plus beaches.  Miles and miles of beaches.

Pensacola has all that and more and I am so happy I settled here!  I invite you to come and explore it and I commit to making your stay a 5 Star stay!!!

I go above and beyond to make sure my guests have all the little things they need for a stress free stay, and have all the current information on the best beaches to go, where to go for date night, and where to look for music and dancing!!

I look forward to greeting and welcoming you to enjoy my home and all that Pensacola has to offer soon! 

Here’s to more sun and fun,
