Eastern Lake house description

DIRECT OCEAN AND LAKE VIEWS - JUST 10 STEPS TO BEACH WALK OUT!
STAY 6 NIGHTS... 7TH IS FREE!

It doesn't get any better than 'Pelican Watch' in Seagrove Beach... offering the perfect family accommodations, the best 'easy' beach access and largest, most beautiful white sugar sand beach area on all of 30-A.

Imagine waking up to beautiful sunrises over Eastern Lake and incredible views of an emerald ocean and white sand from every deck, ocean breezes cooling the balmy Florida air, and sunsets that no artist or poet could possibly capture... All from this wonderful three-story, FIVE BEDROOM, FOUR BATH (includes a one bedroom/bath lockout apartment on first level with living area with sleeper sofa, TV with VCR, kitchen, dining area, separate bedroom and bath), luxury home in Seagrove Beach.

Four of the five bedrooms have their own private deck or patio and three of the bedrooms have their own private bath! Perfect for several families to share while maintaining a sense of privacy. Please feel free to call or email for additional description and information!

Location, location, location... Not only is the house perfectly located just steps from the 'flat' walkout to the Gulf beaches and Eastern Lake, it resides in the precious community of Seagrove Beach which borders the internationally renown villages of Seaside, Rosemary Beach and Grayton Beach.

This area offers a 'plethora' of activities: 18 Miles of Bike trails adorn the 30A route all the way from Rosemary Beach to Dune Allen and there are plenty of restaurants, shops, and sightseeing along the way; Eastern Lake is fun for boating, fishing, and wonderful wading areas are perfect for the younger children who are a bit small for the ocean waves - and of course the Gulf offers a multitude of fun activities for every age! Just plant your beach blanket and umbrella between the lake and the Gulf and you'll have the best of all worlds. Just one visit and you'll want to make 'Pelican Watch' at Seagrove Beach your family escape... year after year! Do not let this incredible rental value pass you by!

Pelican Watch has a 85-90% RETURN GUEST RATE every year, which tells a wonderful story of my guest's satisfaction... So remember to book early!! A $500 REFUNDABALE DEPOSIT will hold your reservation until two weeks prior to arrival! There is no reason to miss out on this wonderful beach house if you book early!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2002

                      About the owner: After living 30 years in Atlanta, with my last profession as a graphic artist, it was time to get off of the busy Atlanta roads and 'smell the roses' or more appropriately 'smell the salt air'... I was so fortunate to find Pelican Watch and purchase it as a rental, which gave me the ability to have somewhere to go when the I needed the escape, but Pelican Watch became so popular, it was hard to find a week or two for myself and family! The blessing came as an ability to actually move to the area and live in paradise. I get such pleasure from offering my beach home to the wonderful guests that grace Pelican Watch, that I decided to keep Pelican Watch as a vacation rental and find my own home right here on 30-A.

                      Why the Owner Chose Eastern Lake:
                      When the possibility for early retirement became evident, I searched most of the United States coastlines for the perfect spot for me to retire... This area had been a favorite vacation spot for my family for years and after researching alternate vacation areas... I knew that there was none other than the 30-A area! Pelican Watch beat out dozens of other possibilities due to its position between Eastern Lake and the Gulf. The charm of Seagrove Beach was the topping on the cake.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      There is something very spiritual about Pelican Watch and its location. Very hard to explain, but I've had many quests say the same thing. Just looking out on the sugary sand and turquoise water brings a peace within. The huge porches capture the breezy balmy winds and are the perfect gathering area for family and friends. For those who like more adventure, Pelican Watch offers about 7 bicycles, 2 kayaks and a canoe... along with beach toys galore. The 19 mile biking trail runs the entire length of 30-A... great for discovering the incomparable beauty of the area, its wildlife and many spots for dining and shopping along the way. Catch a free concert in the green space at Seaside, Rosemary Beach and other activites offered by the townships along the beach. There is something for everyone of every age... you will want to return year after year.
