About Howard and Carole Currid

Howie was born and raised in Northern New Jersey (Colonia). Carole was born and raised in Southern Connecticut (Greenwich). We are both retired and try to travel as often as we can.

Howard and Carole Currid purchased this house in 1996

Why Howard and Carole Currid chose Hernando Beach

We love our Hernando Beach house. It is peaceful and relaxing but close enough to everything so as not to be remote. We found we were not using the house as often as we thought we would and it just sat there empty so we decided to turn it into a vacation home for other people to enjoy.

What makes this house unique

Direct access to the Gulf of Mexico. Bring your boat or rent a pontoon boat and you can spend your day out on the Gulf. Rentals are available just at the beginning of the street. Solar heated pool which helps extend the swimming season. Shrimp boats pass every evening on their way out to the Gulf and return in the morning. Dolphins are seen on a regular basis in the canals and I have seen a mother Manatee and her baby right at the dock.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you to our Host and Hostess for being so helpful. The house was spotless and beautiful. Everything we needed was there. Will definitely return.

Absolutely loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The owners and the home are nothing short of amazing. Kitchen is stocked with anything you need to cook with. The pool and outside area is absolutely the best. While here the water line on the hot water heater burst and I was away with the kids. My wife found it called the owners and this was fixed within 30 mins. They even advised us of some of the best local places to eat and turned out that each of them was VERY good. Overall I will rate this place as 5 star and I only have one complaint about the home and that is more of a personal preference. The bed in the master was very very firm and I like my bed more soft. Again that is a personal preference. Our only other issue is that the area was almost to quite and relaxing LOL at least for the kids. We did end up having to drive a ways to entertain them a couple days. OH the local theater is AWESOME! Reclining seats with cheap $3 for new movies and something like $6 for 3d releases even. I can not think of anything else about the vacation that we did not enjoy. If you are hesitating about booking....dont worry Great Owners and Great House.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the great review. Even though you experienced a minor flood from the broken hose on the hot water tank. Rebecca ended up mopping up most of the water before we even got there. Many thanks Rebecca. The bed is too firm for me too but Howie thinks it's perfect🙄. Thank you for leaving the house in such great condition. Your family is welcome back anytime. Carole

Hernando Beach Stay 12/17

  • 4 of 5

Carole stopped by to meet with us the first morning of our stay in her home. She was very informative and helpful. I had a few questions and she was able to answer them and accommodate our needs and requests very quickly. Her home was clean and comfortable with a lovely view of the water, wildlife, etc. It was perfect for what we needed and wanted. The only suggestion I would have is to tell renters that there is a solar heater for the pool and if the weather does not cooperate, particularly during the cooler months of the year, the water will be colder. We will be returning to the area and we will definitely try to return to Carole's home! Thank you for making our stay enjoyable!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your short stay in Hernando Beach. It is listed in the description of the house that the pool is solar heated and also the pictures of the pool state that it is solar heated. I am sorry about the pool being too chilly for you to enjoy, it would have made your time perfect if you could have floated around in the pool instead of just looking at it. Next time you are here I hope the weather will be a little better.

Excellent place to stay, well equipped and loved location

  • 5 of 5

We had everything we needed at this house, it was spacious, and had all the towels, dishes and that sort of thing you could want. We went scalloping a few times and it was just a short boat ride from the property. We enjoyed sitting outside and watching the boats go by, and the neighbors feeding the birds. Thank you Carole!

Loved the whole property!!

We had a great experience working with Carol and Howie. Excellent amenities. Linens were clean, beds and couches were comfortable. The pool was an absolute necessity, and it was very clean.

All in all, our whole family had a fantastic stay. Such a beautiful property.

Thanks so much, Carol and Howie!!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had another great week for our annual scalloping trip. We stayed at Carole's home and it was just as described. Three bedrooms/2 baths and tons of floor space. She was pleasant to work with and responded quickly to any requests we had. Loved having the home on the canal which was a 12 min moter to the channel. Public boat ramp was close by for dropping our boat in the water for the week which was convenient. Pool was nice and refreshing after a long day in the Gulf. Until next year...
