Hi, we are Nikki and Sean Martin, born and bred in Scotland! We have always embraced traveling around the world and seizing new challenges.
It makes perfect sense that we settle here in the ravishing Space Coast now that our sons Paul and Ben have flown the nest. In our next chapter we look forward to imparting our knowledge gained to personally wow the guests and help them create precious memories here by the beach.
We will give property owners back the gift of time as we take care of every aspect of their property - from global marketing to maximal revenue using cutting-edge technologies. We are so thankful to have this opportunity to serve the local vacation property owners and help them achieve their dreams.
In our spare time, we love kayaking, exploring Kennedy Space Center's working launch facilities, reading a good book at the beach and eating at our favorite local restaurants, like Salty Sisters Bar and Grill.
We treat you like family, always going the extra mile to maximize your rental revenue, providing your guests with personalized service and maintaining your property as if it's our own.
