Style, amenities, and spaciousness combine to make 'Beach Buddy' one of the most sought after beach homes in the area for a relaxing and memorable family vacation. Decorative details include original works by local and international artists, hardwood flooring, and impressive updated furnishings not normally found in the other rental homes.
Wrap-around decks on the second and third floors are great for entertaining and watching the sunsets. The home has an updated kitchen with all stainless steel appliances and granite counters. Great family home! Home features a huge farm table with seating for 10 and even more seating for meals at the counter. Comfortable, 'Beachy' decor!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: Steve & Shirley Linahan live in Georgetown, Texas (Austin)...when we aren't at the beach or traveling.

              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
              Because we fell in love with the white sand beaches of the Emerald Coast of Florida. We felt this home was perfect to allow us to share it with our family and friends as well as new friends we meet each year.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We are continually updating and upgrading our home which faces the beach and is just a short stroll on a sidewalk. We always love to talk about the beach and the 30A area, give Shirley or I a call...512-923-5400.
