Seaside is a little less than a mile away with entertaiment for adults and kids. Many locally owned shops and restaurants are

This is a great family vacation home for a laid back 30-A South Walton vacation. It is almost never crowded where we are located, but if you want the crowds then just bike to Seaside. While there is a private beach directly across street, there is also a public beach close by with Walton County Lifeguards if that is important.

                            It was very hard to leave Barbie's Beach House. The house is so special and there is so much attention to detail. The artwork is quirky and fun and the atmosphere is perfect for relaxing indoors or out. The walk to the beach was a breeze and we rode our bikes everywhere. The heated pool was awesome and I spent many afternoons on the hammock while the teenagers were at seaside. The owner will go out of his way to make sure your stay is perfect. It was also very nice having access to beach chairs, pool toys and almost anything you would need in the kitchen to make a great meal. It was a true home away from home vacation. Thank you for allowing my family to spend the week there. And, a special thanks for the key lime pie that was waiting for us when we arrived! We hope to return to Barbie's Beach House next year.

                            We had an incredible time and loved the location. Very short bike ride (5 minutes max) to the heart of seaside. Walk across road to a fantastic spot on the beach. House was darling, great condition, pool was great! Owner was very helpful throughout week if we needed recommendations!

                            Our family of 4 was there for spring break. The house is great -- even cuter than the pictures! There is so much attention to detail and that really makes it a special property. The owner is very friendly and attentive. There are many great restaurants and shopping close by. This house is less than a mile from Seaside so it is just a very easy bike ride away. Publix is close by so you are not too far from a grocery store. The heated pool was great on a couple of days that were too windy for the beach. My kids played in the pool all day on those days. We definitely cannot wait to come back to this house again!!!

                            This house is wonderful. Very clean and comfortable. Easy access to both the beach and to the Seaside city center. This house includes all the amenities and is wonderfully decorated. The homeowners have thought of everything and paid special attention to detail. We highly recommend this house to anyone staying in the area.

                            What a wonderful house and such a great location! Walking distance to Seaside and a short drive to Destin for the great shopping and restaurants. The beach is so close, we could hear the waves crashing at night. The place is equipped with a fantastic grill, I cooked some awesome steaks on that bad boy. The bed is super soft and my girlfriend and I slept so well that I found that when I awoke I hadn't even moved from when I fell asleep. The decor is so much fun! Bright and cheery pastel colors throughout. I really enjoyed the beach theme, made me forget all about home. There is no doubt that this is the ultimate beach house!!! The pool is but a few steps away from the back porch and there are plenty of beach chairs to assist you in acquiring the perfect tan. It is accessible to everything you want or could possibly need; Publix is very close, restaurants are abundant and the beach, the beach, the beach!!! I've stayed in a lot of beach houses in my day (I went to high school in Sarasota) and I lived a long time in Florida. That being said, this is my favorite of all time. The only time we stopped laughing and having fun at this house was when we shut the front privacy gate to leave, and even then we were still very content that we had the chance to have such a fantastic vacation in such an absolutely perfect beach house. Throw in a caring, responsive, available, unobtrusive owner who was always available and you can't lose with this fantastic beach house! We loved it and we will be back. Thanks Ted!!!

                            This house was a perfectly located setting for my family and I to enjoy fall break. Not only was it an easy stroll to the beach and restaurants but it also had everything we needed and more for the week. The owner was easy to communicate with and the house was beautiful. We will likely be back again next year!

                            My husband and I just rented the amazing Barbie's Beachhouse for the first time for our annual birthday trip to the beach ... and my mom joined us half way through the week and we so wish we were still there! We loved the beachy and comfortable theme of the house, as well as the layout and the extra amenities ... especially the outdoor living like the fenced in yard, private pool, lounge chairs, porches, and more. This house is set up for you to thoroughly enjoy the outdoors in peace, which we loved. It was so awesome that the house came equipped with bicycles, beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, and more ... so you don't have to lug all this stuff from home or buy extra stuff you won't need when you are back home. The furniture and beds were very comfortable and loved that ceiling fans were in every room of the house, as well dimmer lights if you want to set the mood. The location is brilliant and very close to the beach, Seaside, other restaurants and stores, and the walk/bicycle path ... But you feel secluded when actually at the house! The house was well equipped with everything you need, even blowdryers and curling irons for the ladies. The owner, Ted, was very friendly and helpful and super easy to talk with if we needed anything. We would definitely recommend this house and definitely will rent again! A few things I'd recommend to the owners is to: provide guests with more TP (we had to buy more very soon into our trip), have a bigger kitchen trash can (it was so tiny we had to empty and take out every day), provide more kitchen towels and maybe more towels for baths (or at least larger) because my husband is 6'4" and the towels barely worked for him. Those are minor fixes and would make the house just extra perfect. We loved it and would like to thank the owners for sharing such a wonderful place with us!

                            My family that includes my Mother, 2 sisters, 2 kids ages 12 and 16 and myself stayed at this lovely, clean, beautiful, home for 7 wonderful days in early August of 2013! This home is an oasis and it is everything it says on this site and more. Every area in the home is decorated beautifully and you notice something new every day. The art is so fun! The private pool is wonderful and the convenience to the beach is amazing… This property is a quick bike ride to all of the action in Seaside! We all enjoyed drinking a few cocktails in the pool in the early evening before dinner and the kids had a great time swinging in the hammock in the front yard under the shade of the beautiful trees. We used the BBQ every other night.(super clean!) The grounds are really pretty with lots of blooming flowers and Adirondack chairs are situated perfectly in the front yard. The owners are wonderful people that were extremely hospitable. There was lots of little touches, like a fresh Key Lime pie in the fridge, that made this place my new favorite vacation location. I am already planning a girls trip for early next year. I can’t wait to get back there. I recommend this place for anyone looking to enjoy a nice relaxing vacation.

                            Look no further for your beach rental, this home has it all!! We brought 2 sets of grandparents, our children (3 & 5), and this home was perfect for everyone. It is close enough to the beach for the children to walk comfortably and the pool is perfect for cooling off in the afternoon. There was plenty of space for everyone and the bedding is wonderful. We loved the chairs out front; they're nestled under oaks and are perfect for morning coffee or chatting while grilling. The owner really has everything you need, beach toys, chairs, coolers, plenty of dishes and cooking utensils. The owner is readily available and accommodating. Most importantly the beach access is very convenient (directly across the street) and the beach is almost private. My family and I vacation in Seaside/Seagrove every year and this is my favorite home yet!!

                            Our family just returned from this wonderful oasis and it was everything the owners said it was. From the Key Lime pie in the frig to the great landscaping and private pool, this home had everything a family would want. Seaside is right up the road and the beach is an easy walk across the street. Although they do have a private beach entrance there's also a ramp entrance nearby which is convenient for pushing your beach cart. The beach decor is beautiful and the sectional is very comfy. I would definitely recommend this for any family wanting a nice and relaxing vacation in beautiful Seaside. We can't wait to return next year!!
