Property description

Enjoy the BEST and MOST EXTENSIVE Gulf views of any home in the Seacrest Beach development ... while still getting to enjoy the awesome 12,000-square foot lagoon pool.

Our three-bedroom cottage, 'It Had to be View,' is conveniently located at the front of the popular neighborhood of Seacrest Beach Resort, with NO development between our home and the Gulf. We offer the best of all worlds at a great value:

-- Gorgeous views of the Gulf from the third floor

-- A 2-minute walk to the fabulous Seacrest Beach lagoon pool

-- A 4-5 minute walk (or a FREE and convenient shuttle ride) to the beach

-- An easy walk along 30-A to shopping and dining in the town centers of both Rosemary Beach and Alys Beach

-- Two blocks from a fun playground near the Fonville Press at Alys Beach

At the end of the day, enjoy the stunning panoramic views that will take your breath away!

The home also comes with free wireless internet access and free long distance calling within the U.S.!

The home sleeps 8 very comfortably with a king sized bed, a queen, a double bed, twin bunks and a daybed with pop-up trundle.

The living area offers a large flat-screen TV with DVD player. The dining and kitchen area, open to the living room, seat 10 for mealtimes -- 6 at the table and 4 at the bar. The well equipped kitchen has granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and a spacious pantry.

A full bath serves both the living area and the downstairs bedroom. This bedroom has a private porch which leads to the back yard. It is a flexible room with twin bunk beds and a double bed, suitable for families or four children. There is also a flat screen TV and DVD player to keep the children occupied. Out the back door is a porch, gas grill and a fenced-in backyard for youngsters to play safely.

The second floor has a spacious master bedroom with king bed, hardwood floors, sitting area with a large flat-screen TV and DVD player, and a private porch. The master bathroom has a view of the Gulf from the glass-enclosed shower and tile floors, double sinks and a large tub.

The third bedroom on the same level has a queen bed dressed with a down comforter and a private bath/shower. Double doors lead to a private porch. The second level also includes a laundry closet with full-size washer and dryer. All bedrooms have plenty of closet space.

The third floor is the tower room with wet bar, refrigerator, Carribean-style game table, a 19 in. TV to catch your favorite sports, and daybed with pop up trundle -- great for lounging during the day. There are wrap-around windows and sun decks on both east and west sides to enjoy sunrise and sunset on the gulf and the beautiful beaches of South Walton. Truly AWESOME!

Year Purchased: 2013

About: The beaches of 30A are absolutely the most gorgeous in all of Florida. I recently moved here from Georgia to be close to my grandchildren who live in Blue Mountain Beach. I am currently living in Seagrove Beach, just a hop, skip and a jump for 'It Had to Be View' while I am building a house in Blue Mountain Beach. This has been the most delightful transition and being here makes me want to get up and get out and be active. Katie and CC, my lab and Cavalier King Charles, make sure I do the getting up for sure as soon as the sun comes up -- which is really early here! My son who lives in Atlanta just bought this beautiful home in Seacrest in August, 2013, for others to enjoy until he can get here for a quick getaway. I know he would appreciate your telling him what a lovely time you had at It Had to be View!

Why Seacrest Beach North:
Seacrest Beach is probably one of the most popular vacation spots on 30A because of its proximity to Rosemary and Alys Beaches. The lagoon pool at the Resort is 12000 square feet which gives plenty of space for families to enjoy. The property, named for its amazing views, has unobstructed views of the gulf, and was THE major attraction for us.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I love the shopping experience in this area. There are so many neat decorating stores -- Pizitz at Seaside, Tracery at Rosemary and Beau in Grayton Corners, just love those places. Can't pass up a bargain at the Outlet mall in Sandestin! And it is only 10 miles to Pier Park Shopping Center in Panama City Beach where they have a huge movie theater. Winn Dixie, Publix and CVS are only 3 miles away. My favorite restaurants are George's in Alys Beach, Onano in Rosemary and love the new 'Pearl' Hotel. Children are welcome in all the restaurants here and so are your animals allowed to sit outside while you enjoy a cocktail or dinner. The walking/bike trail on 30A is unique to this area and a safe and fun place to enjoy.
