Property description

'Toes In The Sand' is a charming, luxury home conveniently located south of Hwy 30-A (the beach side) in Seagrove between Seaside and Rosemary Beach. You will enjoy beautiful ocean views and feel the gulf breeze from the 'Tower' (top porch) in an exclusive, gated community, Summer's Edge. For more information visit our web site at www.68ryan.com.

Enjoy visiting with family and friends on two separate porches with swings, chairs & hammocks. Two private pools, one is seasonally heated for your comfort. Its only 225 yards (a short 4 minute walk) to the private beach using the neighborhood walkway -- where you will discover one of the most spectacular beaches in the world on the beautiful Emerald Coast.

This home will comfortably accommodate up to eight (8). The master suite includes a large jetted garden tub, separate shower and comfortable, memory-foam mattress. The master and one of the guest bedrooms each have their own private on-suite access to a spacious, second story private porch, where you can relax in the hammock or simply read, nap or have coffee. The kitchen is fully stocked and features granite counter tops, breakfast bar, double refrigerator with ice maker and an extra large table to gather your family around. Hardwood floors throughout first floor and all common areas. Our large leather sectional with flat-screen HD TV with many channel options allows you to enjoy a movie with a large group. You will also find flat screen TV's in the master and second bedrooms & a DVD player in the family room and bunk bedroom.

Free cable, reliable, high-speed WiFi access; Free local and long distance calling within the U.S., Complimentary books, movies, magazines provided.

South Walton (SoWal) is a unique fusion of Caribbean and European styles with white picket fenced, gulf communities, which has been attracting celebrities who regularly visit and/or reside here. For a day outing, its an easy 30 minute drive west to Destin featuring a premier lifestyle center anchored by Bass Pro Shop, an outlet mall and 14-theater Rave Motion Pictures. Go about 16 miles east to visit Panama City's new Pier Park, a mega outdoor shopping venue consisting of over a million square feet and 124 specialty shops plus restaurants, the Boardwalk, Miracle Strip amusement theme park, the Grand Theatre, a 16 screen, state-of-the-art IMAX movie theatre, 1,500' fishing pier ($6 includes a fishing pass), concerts, catamaran sailing and more. There is plenty to do for everyone but for many the main activity is no activity at all.

Owner info

About the owner: Hi, we are Kevin & Stacy. We currently live in Atlanta but have been vacationing along 30-A since the 1980s. We enjoy spending time at our beach home with our friends and family and love the quaint, white-picket fenced Summer's Edge neighborhood. We hope you enjoy Toes in the Sand as much as we do. Come on down and visit and enjoy a truly special vacation.

Why the Owner Chose Summer's Edge:
LOCATION, PRIVACY, BEACH, LAKE - Prestigious Summer's Edge is a private, (Southern Living) award-winning, Gulf-front community with luxurious vacation homes similar to nearby Seaside, Watercolor, and Rosemary Beach... except we are closer to the beach and adjacent to beautiful Eastern Lake, a bird and wildlife sanctuary. BEST OF BOTH WORLDS (Beach & Lake) Easy beach access is provided via the neighborhood's wooden boardwalk. Seagrove has one of the finest sugar white sand beaches you will see and is renowned for its natural scenic beauty and turquoise waters earning Travel + Leisure magazine’s award for 'Best Beaches on Earth' for families. Santa Rosa Beach was named one of the “10 Best Beach Destinations for 2011” by Yahoo! Travel, which praised its “lapping waves and cool sand” and the endless array of outdoor and indoor activities. Eastern Lake, a coastal dune lake and bird & wildlife sanctuary is located just a few blocks away. You will find public access where kids can play, YOLO boarding, kayaking, fishing (fresh & saltwater) A wide tree-lined, street, direct, private beach access, two pools and a privacy gate combined makes Summer's Edge the perfect location. South Walton is a mix of sophisticated style and Old Florida charm giving it a unique vibe. Discover local artists, quaint beach shops and boutiques. There is plenty to do and we are conveniently located to everything yet there are no traffic jams and limited hi-rise and franchised developments. If you seek a relaxing getaway then the place to be is South Walton, even better is south of 30-A (the beach side) and the very best is at Summer's Edge. Why choose Toes in the Sand? Simple. It offers the best value not only in Summer's Edge but in the local area. Check it out for yourself. We invite you to come down and put your 'Toes in the Sand.' You'll be glad you did.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Watching sunsets from the 'Tower,' read or nap in a hammock to a gentle gulf breeze; take a short, 4 minute stroll to the beach (about 250 yards) via the neighborhood walkway (no need to cross the highway), walk to local restaurants and shops or around 30A. Riding bikes along the miles of bike trails, Eastern Coastal Dune Lake, Deer Lake Park or a brief 1.8 miles to Seaside for wine tasting, a movie, live music and dancing. On Saturday and Tuesday mornings the Seaside Farmers Market offers fresh local produce, dairy products, baked goods, and native plants. Demonstrations in cooking and gardening are also held on a regular basis. Swimming in the heated pool (500' away) in early spring and late fall or in the non-heated, infinity pool mid-summer. Cooking and eating in with family or going out to visit a variety of restaurants. The ice cream truck visits daily with ice cream treats for the kids. No need to worry about traffic or the kids in this gated, upscale, private community. There are numerous year-round events nearby for all ages. There are excellent award-winning restaurants nearby including Cafe 30A (check out the BOGO before 6 p.m.), Bud & Alley's, and Red Bar. Or check out Goatfeathers for fresh seafood. South Walton is an ecological paradise with more than 40% (56,000 acres) of the area preserved state land, providing many natural attractions. There are miles of paved trails that are ideal for biking, hiking, and jogging and the State Parks, including Point Washington State Forest, also have trails for off-road biking. Fresh and salt water lakes, Choctawhatchee bay and the Gulf of Mexico provide many waterfront miles for swimming, fishing, kayaking, YOLO boarding and other recreational past-times. South Walton is also home to the largest concentration of rare coastal dune lakes in the world. Similar eco-systems can only be found in Madagascar, Australia, New Zealand, and the Northwest Pacific coast of the U.S.
