Our Story

Growing up in Michigan, I felt very fortunate to have grandparents that retired on the gulf coast of Florida.  My family always looked forward to holidays and summer vacation when we would travel down to visit with them.  They loved Florida almost as much as they loved us.

My grandfather, Harold,(a.k.a. "Bump") helped manage a classic old Florida motel on Redington Beach where the guests were like family.  It was called the Gulf Sun (inspiration).  It exists in my memories as the pinnacle of warm salt breezes, long summer days splashing in the surf and family gatherings.  

To me, the Forgotten Coast is a time capsule Harold left behind for us to cherish and enjoy.  We have a passion for the area and live to share this magic with others.  We have since moved from the Midwest and live in Port St Joe.  It is a wonderful place to live and work.  We feel blessed to call it home!
