About Us

Gulf Coast Vacation Properties, LLC is locally owned and operated by McKenzie Register. Mckenzie is a lifelong resident of Franklin County, FL. She grew up watching guests fall in love with our beautiful Forgotten Coast and knew then that she wanted to be apart of creating that experience.

Meet McKenzie

Our Founder and Owner, McKenzie Register, brings a decade of experience and a passion for excellence to the creation of Gulf Coast Vacation Properties, LLC. A native of the Forgotten Coast, McKenzie has spent her entire career in the hospitality industry, and her expertise in all aspects of vacation rental property hosting and management makes her the most sought-after professional in the business here.


Coming up through the ranks at Collins Vacation Rentals and Resort Vacation Properties, McKenzie is taking her career “next level” by creating a boutique vacation rental hosting and property management company focused on both the guest and the owner experiences. In her career in the vacation rental industy, she has literally worked in every aspect of the business: check-in/check-out process, guest services and in-house needs, property maintenance, housekeeping, inspecting, owner relations, portfolio revenue management, and new property acquisitions. In her most recent role, McKenzie personally oversaw a portfolio of $30 million in annual vacation rental revenue and onboarded $50 million in new vacation property inventory in less than 2 years. 


A stickler for details, McKenzie personally inspects and evaluates each home in the Gulf Coast Vacation Property portfolio to insure that it is ready to be the perfect setting for family and friends to make beach vacation memories that last a lifetime. When guest and owner needs arise, McKenzie taps into her extensive network of Forgotten Coast maintenance technicians, contractors, housekeepers, and excursion and beach gear providers to deliver a seamless, stress-free experience for both guests and property owners.

Guest Experience

Our mission at Gulf Coast Vacation Properties, LLC is to host beach vacation experiences for our guests that set the new standard for quality and luxury on St. George Island. Our curated portfolio of beach vacation homes and estates means that every property that we host has been carefully prepared to maximize guest enjoyment. Every detail has been considered: from luxury linens, bath soaps and gels, pristine housekeeping standards, locally-sourced specialty amenities, and all property features inspected and ready to go.


Beyond hosting the property, our team offers concierge services to create customized beach vacation experiences, including: 

  • Day excursions from shelling and fishing boating adventures to nature walks and kayak trips

  • Private chef experiences for festive occasions, and a beachside break from meal preparation

  • Wedding planning and event management, turnkey or a la carte

  • Personal shopping services: walk into your beach vacation home with the fridge and pantry fully stocked, and beach chairs and umbrellas already set up for sunset!

  • Private butler and VIP housekeeping for longer guest stays and special beachside events


Whether hosting your group at a large Gulf-front estate or an intimate Bayside fishing cottage, guests will immediately notice the Gulf Coast Vacation Properties difference. Check out our property listings today and get ready for the most amazing beach vacation experience of your life.

Guest Experience

Our philosophy at Gulf Coast Vacation Properties, LLC is to orchestrate beach vacation experiences for our guests that exceed anything currently available on St. George Island, while generating profitable results for our owners. Because we are very selective in the properties that we host for our owners, we invest the time to get to know each one like it was our own and treat it that way. Owners will appreciate that telephone calls and email messages are returned the same day, and that guest needs are top priority, resulting in 5-star reviews and top-notch financial results. 


At Gulf Coast Vacation Properties, the owner experience truly is different. For starters, nickel and dime billings that run up maintenance costs become a thing of the past. We will sweat the “small stuff,” and at no extra charge to you. When maintenance needs to arise, we work with our network of providers to deliver repairs and maintenance in a timely, cost-effective manner.  


As a boutique vacation rental company we personalize our services to achieve each owners’ goals and needs. By familiarizing ourselves with each property in our portfolio in detail, we are able to monitor the integrity of your investment. At the start of our business relationship, we prepare customized marketing strategies for your beach vacation home, and income projections to understand what your investment or potential investment can or should produce. We then work to exceed these expectations!


If you want to learn more about our services, we are only a phone call (850) 559-9276 or email - away! And the best news? That’s how far away we will always be: standing by to assist our owners and guests 24/7, 365 days a year!


I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect.
