About Karen Thorne
I manage the rentals for the owner. I have been working with rental properties for over 20 years. When I travel, I love to rent homes instead of hotels, so that we can cook and relax in our own space. We are based in CT but have rental homes in Nantucket, Connecticut and North Carolina as well as Florida. We strive to make every visit at our vacation rental properties as relaxing and enjoyable as possible.
Karen Thorne purchased this House in 2017

Quiet Retreat Home
The property inside is well maintained. Everything you need for your stay was provided. The outdoor area was wonderful from the private pool to beautiful views out the back to the canal and views from the front of conservation land. It was a great place to come back to after our daily adventures in the sun.
Loved the place!!!
It was hard leaving! Great house and location.
Bike ride to the restaurant/Bar, the canal ride was only 10min to open water by boat
Thanks for taking good care of our Pine Island home. Please come visit again!
The house itself was clean and up-to-date inside and out. Beautiful setting on the canal with plenty of vegetation surrounding the house to give it a secluded feel. We had 2 families (8 people) and had sufficient space to accommodate. The house offered everything we needed from space/view and all the way down to utensils. It's located close to everything you'll need and provides a perfect relaxing environment to hang out and swim once you return from your daily activity. Communication with Manager was great which always help to alleviate a little bit of stress when staying away from home. We very much enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this house! Thanks for the memories!
Thanks for the kind review Please come visit again

Franzone house was everything we imagined and MORE!
We cannot wait to return to the Franzone house in St James City. The main living space was huge and relaxing. Kitchen was well equipped, loved the bar top counter w stools and a dining table, everyone could congregate! The lanai was absolutely UNBELIEVABLE, we spent almost everyday in the pool. The upper deck was spacious and we spent almost every meal out there. The canal and docks were amazing as well, we saw dolphins daily at sunrise and sunset, manatee a couple times too! Kayaking we had a blast, not far from Gulf at all. Next time bringing our own boat, 3 great working lifts for any size boat. Monroe Marina rents great boats half & full days, well worth it. Quiet neighborhood very safe everyone waves :) Visited Sanibel twice less than hour away.
Had an awesome vacation and already returning end of the year!! Thank you for a memorable trip.
