When Marianne Mackey moved to DeBordieu in 2011, she fully embraced the community and lifestyle, but quickly recognized the challenges facing homeowners that were not full-time residents. Organizing visits, opening and closing homes, staying current with the best restaurants, merchants and activities were all distractions from time that should be spent with family and friends on porches, the beach and on the golf course. After decades of managing client relationships and diverse, detailed, global projects for Citicorp and MasterCard, Marianne determined that her unique skill set could be leveraged to provide the solution!
Marianne started Carefree Coastal Living (CCL), a boutique concierge service, providing its DeBordieu clients with more of that elusive commodity, time. CCL offers a variety of insured concierge services, customized to ensure that you enjoy every moment you spend at DeBordieu.
While Carefree Coastal Living’s services are customized for each client, these are a few examples:
•Client’s cars are delivered to, and collected from, the airport.
•Homes are cleaned prior to arrival, and closed after the client leaves.
•Groceries, baked goods, flowers, wines are purchased from your preferred vendors and waiting for you when you arrive.
•Homes are monitored on a weekly basis.
•Service providers are met, and monitored.
•Large projects, such as house painting, are managed.
Marianne understands that you’ve worked hard and deserve to enjoy every minute of your personal time. Many of my DeBordieu clients have hired Carefree Coastal Living because Marianne provides extraordinary customer service and unparalleled attention to detail……. And so that they can relax.
Here’s what people are saying about Marrianne and Carefree Coastal Living:
“We have had the pleasure of working with Marianne at Carefree Coastal Living for almost 2 years and it has been a great experience! Since our primary residence is a long way from our home in DeBordieu, it is very important to us that we feel comfortable and secure that our home is well looked after between our trips to South Carolina. With Marianne and her team at CCL, we not only feel our home is well cared for, but we also know that when we do arrive in DeBordieu all of our needs are being met and our arrival is hassle free. Whether it is a refrigerator full of our favorite foods or being welcomed to a home that is perfectly clean, CCL can be counted on to have everything ready for our arrival. However, the special part of CCL is the creativity and the “always thinking ahead” of Marianne to be sure that our time spent at DeBordieu is about enjoying time with family and friends. She has not missed a beat with us and she has become a real friend in the process.” ~Dianne McGowan
“Carefree Coastal Living is a dream come true. I have availed myself of their services on numerous occasions and am impressed with the friendly and professional service offered. I first tried CCL last summer. I was coming down for a short period of time with guests and did not want to spend time grocery shopping. I provided them with an ambitious list, including multiple stops, and everything was carefully put away when we arrived. The best part was the home-baked coffee cake and the “welcome home” card waiting for us. Since then I have relied upon CCL for numerous services. This winter they checked on our home when things got very cold. They oversaw the replacement of my garage doors, have taken our car to Myrtle Beach for a service appointment, coordinated a painting estimate and have assumed responsibility for cleaning our home. I cannot recommend them highly enough.” ~ Sarah Welsh
“I’m so thankful for Marianne and Carefree Coastal Living. She has given me peace of mind and freedom and flexibility. We live out of town and are unable to enjoy our condo as much as we would like. Marianne and her staff will clean the condo as well as ensure us that the condo is safe and secure. We recommend this service.” ~ Denise Hudson
