Little bit About Us!

Our Story

Where to start?  Well… “Villa Grove” is really a family venture for us – our various logos are even family-designed!  We’ve done the 9 to 5 (or 7 to 7 as it usually is) office routine, and Andy has run some of the largest vacation rental companies in Florida and Colorado. 

As long-time veterans of the service industry, we love being able to help guests enjoy great vacations with family and friends – but, we seemed to be spending less and less time with our two young sons.  It was time for a change in our personal and professional lives, and Villa Grove Properties was born.


Our Mission!

Our mission is to leverage state-of-the-art technology resources, coupled with our industry expertise and hands-on commitment to personalized service, with the goal of providing nothing less than the perfect vacation rental experience for guests and homeowners.  This is a family business, and we want to welcome you to the family!

Meet Our Owners

Andy Zeiset, Kim Zeiset & and kids

Andy Zeiset – Owner

I earned a B.A. in psychology from Hartwick College (upstate NY) in 1997, and have spent most of my adult life in the resort towns of Breckenridge, Colorado (where Kim and I got married) & Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. 

I got involved with vacation rentals early on, and held Exec GM and GM positions, running large scale operations for ResortQuest, Wyndham, and St. Joe.  Working for the big guys gave me a ton of knowledge over the course of 15 years or so, but with two sons in middle school and highschool, my long office-days away from the family just didn’t work for us anymore.  With a small-scale, family-based operation, I’m excited to apply my passion for service in a personal, and impactful way – working directly with our guests & owners.  I love to travel, and it makes me happy to be able to “give back” by creating extra-memorable experiences for vacationing guests.  I also sing and play guitar – with a couple albums of original music under my belt – you can catch me performing locally, or at the 30A Songwriter Radio studio from time to time.  I’m just very grateful to be able to be a part of this wonderful beach community!

Kim Zeiset – Owner

I got my B.S. in Molecular & Integrative Physiology from the University of Illinois in 2000.  I moved out to Breckenridge, Colorado with my dad soon after graduating.  I spent a lot of my time in Breckenridge working in the service industry, managing central offices & employee services for a chain of Vail Resorts ski shops. 

.  I love working with people, and have a knack for logistics management in busy resort-towns.  My real passion is figure skating, and I’ve spent much of my life on the ice, as a competitive skater earlier in life, and a coach later on.  In the end, though, our love of the beach brought us here, and we couldn’t be happier (unless perhaps someone wants to build an ice rink nearby).  In the meantime, I focus my coaching-support interests on being the team mom for our son’s travel soccer team – Gulf South Soccer Club!  Andy and I absolutely love to travel, and I’ve always been the planner on our trips.  I love knowing all the little secrets of what a resort area has to offer, and being able to share tips with our guests – I’m always excited to help our next guests plan their perfect vacation!
