Seagrove Beach East house description

Seagrove Beach Vacation Rental- Peace of Mind

Peace of Mind has beautiful views of the gulf and you are only 25 steps to the sand for your beach access (no steps 'down' to the sand on this part of the beach). You will relax on the spacious decks and have fun not only in the private pool- but the hot tub as well.

Email me for videos walking you through the home and showing you the short walk from the beach access. we also have a live web cam at our home.

5 king size beds, 7 bunk beds, futon, inflatable mattress, 3 full size refrigerators, 1 beverage fridge, 2 individual ice makers, 3 ovens, all you need for large family meals, plenty of room to spread out in living rooms, wide open views from all rooms. It's the perfect beach house!


Why stay at this home?: Quiet, dead-end street- low density population- there are not many folks on this beach. You will have lots of room to spread out. The stars are beautiful here- away from the lights of high rise condos and waterparks! Walk on the beach toward deer lake park and imagine you are on a deserted Island. It is beautiful here! Our home is comfortable. You will feel at home as soon as you walk in the door. The children will love riding their bikes on the street around this house. It is an easy walk over to the beach- no stairs to go down. You are about 25 steps (not yards) to the sand. You will come back for many years!

For Older Children and Younger Children too!: Yes, Panama City Beach is about 10 miles east of us and Destin is about 20 miles west. The older children can have a big time heading down to the action in those beach towns if they need it. There are waterparks and other amusing fun areas. You should check out the airboat rides just north of Panama city. We saw alligators and eagles in the wild. Kids- old and young will love it! Since this is a dead end street, there is no traffic to worry about either. You will feel safe with your younger children running and playing outside the home.

What can we do at this beach?: Ride your bikes to Seaside & Rosemary Beach- all on dedicated bike paths. Walk for miles on the sugar white sands of the gulf. Rent kayaks and go out in the gulf on those calm mornings or take it over to Eastern Lake- right around the corner from our home. Listen to music or watch a movie on the lawn in Seaside. Go to one of the many arts festivals in Rosemary beach. Run through the water fountain in Seacrest. Eat ice cream, have cocktails, or eat at one of the many family friendly restaurants along scenic hwy 30a. Enjoy your family and friends- and laugh often!

Room Description:
1st floor- king bedroom w/ 2 twins (bunk) as well. full bath, playroom, 2 car garage w/ ping pong table......2nd floor- main living room, kitchen, king bedroom w/ private bath, 1/2 bath too.....3rd floor- master king bedroom w/ private bath, king bedroom w/ private bath, bunk room (2 doubles & 2 twins) w/ private bath......carriage house- living room, 2 full baths, king bedroom. all bedrooms have glorious gulf views & balcony (exception- bunk room)

Where is your home located:
Our beach house is located in Seagrove Beach, and is between Deer Lake State Park & Eastern Lake. The state park offers hiking and biking trails, but no facilities-so it is never crowded. If you head east on our beach, there are no homes fronting the gulf. It is a beautiful place to walk! If you head west, Eastern Lake is a fun place to take the skim boards & a net for the zillions of minnows you will find..... Peace of Mind is located on a dead end street with a lots of privacy and little traffic unlike the traffic found on 30A. This is great for those of you with small children & big kids too!

Activities & Attractions:
The quaint towns of Seaside & Rosemary Beach are a car or bike ride away (bikes have dedicated bike paths). Watch movies, get ice cream, shop, eat & drink, or simply hang out in their cute town squares. Panama City is only 20 miles away if you need a larger town to visit. Pier Park is a great place to shop or hang out on rainy days. Of course, Destin (also 20 miles away) has the famous outlet mall if you need any good deals. There are also putt putt courses, water parks, and amusement parks to visit. The best part is that you are staying in a low key area w/ much less traffic then Destin or PCB.

Water Fun:
You are just across a dead end street from the beautiful gulf and sugar white sands. There are no stairs to descend- just roll or carry your beach toys with you and hang out for the day. Walk west on the beach to Eastern Lake- skim board or catch minnows in the shallow waters leading to the gulf. Walk east on the beach to Deer Lake State park & pretend you are on a deserted island. There is plenty of room for a volleyball net or just play any other 'beach' sport. Our pool/hot tub also faces the gulf/beach. You can hang out at the pool and still see your family & friends on the beach.

Pool Heater:
You may heat the pool &/or hot tub for the week for only $300. We have a gas heater, so there are no worries of cooler water in less than ideal weather (less than 50 degrees). Heat pumps can not heat that well in cooler weather. Gas heaters fire up the pool heat at any time!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: Hello- We are Rick, Jill, & Brooks Rice from Berkeley Lake, GA (a suburb of Atlanta in Gwinnett County). Rick and Jill grew up in Knoxville, TN and both graduated from The University of TN. We built Peace of Mind, and it was completed in June 2007. We are very happy to share our home with others, when we can not be there to enjoy it.

                          Why the Owner Chose Seagrove Beach East:
                          Seagrove beach has been our favorite destination for many years. We love the laid back, family atmosphere. The water in the gulf looks different every day. The sunsets are spectacular and take my breath away!

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Your views are WIDE OPEN. There are no obstructions keeping you from seeing the beautiful gulf. 4 of the 6 bedrooms have balconies facing the gulf. all bedrooms have a private bath. You are on a dead-end street. NO TRAFFIC. The beaches are also much less crowded than the beach around Seaside. Visit Seaside, but stay at Peace of Mind! You will love it!
