Fun and Games is located in the highly desirable, family friendly, gated community of Summers Edge in Seagrove Beach. South of Scenic Hwy 30A, the location provides carefree beach and pool access in a bike and pedestrian friendly neighborhood. Located adjacent to the 18 mile bike path running the length of Hwy 30A, bike trips to restaurants, shops, Seaside and Watercolor are a breeze. The neighborhood has 2 beautiful pools (1 heated in cooler months) and a charming dedicated beach access all within 150 yards of the house with no busy streets to cross.
Inside and out, 'Fun and Games' is your perfect beach retreat, ideal for families or couples. The screened front porch with double mahogany doors is the perfect place for morning coffee, afternoon chats, and evening cocktails. Inside you will find a Pottery Barn perfect, large great room with double ceiling fans. With room for everyone, enjoy family movie night or choose from the extensive supply of games and start a family game night tradition. The spacious, meticulously stocked, cooks kitchen overlooks the great room so no one is left out. The kitchen has all stainless steel appliances, ample room for multiple cooks, and a large pantry. The dining room seats 6 comfortably and the large breakfast bar seats 4 more. We have also provided a Weber charcoal grill outdoors for your grilling needs.
The master bedroom makes up the entire second floor, making it your own private retreat. It has an extremely comfortable king sized bed, large walk in closet, personal TV, a beautiful writing desk and a reading chair with ottoman. French doors open on to a private outdoor deck with a bar height table and chairs. The spacious master bath has double sinks and a very large shower. The master retreat is your own special vacation.
The 2 additional charming bedrooms are on the main floor and they share a Jack and Jill bath. The first bedroom has bunk beds with a trundle (3 twins) and a double bed. The closet in this room has been organized to efficiently hold clothes for several children and there is a personal TV. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed and a personal TV.

Additionally, downstairs there is a full laundry room and a separate powder room off the kitchen. One of the couches in the great room is a sofa sleeper if you need additional sleeping space.
Outdoors there is a wonderful, large and private outdoor shower with hot and cold water. It is heavenly on warm days, cool days and even in the rain! Once you try it, you will be hooked.
Seagrove Beach is in the heart of the beautiful 18 mile stretch of the Gulf commonly know as 30A. With its pristine, sugar sand, uncrowded beaches and rare fresh water lakes the area is pure unspoiled Florida, a beach lovers dream and a nature lovers fantasy. There are many authentic beach towns to explore along Scenic Hwy 30A, Seaside, Watercolor, Grayton Beach, Alys Beach and Rosemary Beach, just to name a few. Outstanding restaurants, unique shops, farmers markets and the friendly locals can keep your non-beach hours full, and I almost forgot to mention free outdoor concerts, free outdoor movies on the lawn, and outdoor plays.

About the owner: In need of a break from the frigid Chicago spring weather, my husband and I first visited Seaside with our children in 1999. We fell in love with the area instantly. We both felt so at ease and relaxed, the pace was perfect, and the beaches were indescribable. We were hooked and so were our kids, everyone hated to leave and our return trips became a bi-annual necessity. In the spring of 2002 we discovered the new neighborhood of Summers Edge on one of our biking real estate tours and the rest is history. Over 16 years later the feelings are exactly the same, we are still in love with the area, we are completely at ease and relaxed when we are there, we love the pace, and we always still hate to leave. Seagrove Beach on Scenic Hwy 30A is definitely a slice of heaven.
Why the Owner Chose Summer's Edge: We choose Summers Edge for its quaint 'old florida' feel, its wonderful proximity to the beach and Eastern Lake without any busy roads, and its great family feel. We had a few houses to pick from at the time, but my husband knew instantly, the house with the mahogany screen doors and the big, high ceilinged great room would be ours. We named the house 'Fun and Games' because we knew that would represent all the family memories we would make there. It has definitely lived up to its name.
The Unique Benefits at this House: As the original owners, we have always meticulously maintained this house. It is part of our family and always will be. We enjoy sharing it with others so they can create wonderful beach memories as well. We think you find it as pristine as it was in 2002, only now it is full of so many happy times and 'Fun and Games'.
