My family & I are just returning from a beach trip to Destin. We 
stayed at St Lucia in Silver Shells and rented through you guys for 
the first time. I felt like I needed to send this email to you since 
it was probably the best rental experience we've ever had.  We've been 
coming every year for what seems like our entire lives. We always rent 
from different people/agencies since we usually go through vrbo.
From the minute we checked in at Beachside Inn and experienced Kellie 
Hudson and her pleasant personality to the time we left (after staying 
an extra night), I felt like she was always going above & beyond her 
regular duties to make our trip great!
I had to call Kellie several times whether I was dealing with grocery 
delivery, needing an extra key fabb, trying to book an extra night, 
changing my mind.... Lol But no matter what my question was or what I 
needed her for, she went above and beyond to help me. She was also 
very pleasant and accommodating every single time.
Because Kellie (and Newman Daily) made our trip one of the best ever, 
we will definitely rent from you guys again. Thanks so much for everything!!
