Great home in Seagrove
Great home in Seagrove
I have been vacationing at "Away from it All" for the past 3 years. I love the short convenient walk to the beach and wonderful amenities that this home offers. It is very spacious and private. I only wish I could visit more often!!

Great Vacation Every Year
Great Vacation Every Year
We have been vacationing with three other families in Seagrove every summer for the past five years. This is a great home for large families or groups of friends. There is plenty of room for everyone to have their own space and large enough rooms for everyone to eat together and watch television or play games. The pool is a huge hit with the children and adults alike. The perfect ending to a day spent at the beach. The location is great...short walking distance to Seaside and tons of wonderful restaurants. I would recommend this beach home to any large family or group of friends looking for a fun, easy, and convenient trip to one of the prettiest beaches in Florida.

Our family vacationed in SeaGrove the last week of July the area is beautiful and so are the beaches we enjoyed both. The house was very disappointing and run down with a little work it could be so nice. When we arrived the cleaning people had not finished cleaning and our whole family waited for 2 1/2 hours for them to finish and not even an apology for delaying us. We had to call them the next morning because our 9 month old knees were so dirty from playing on the rug they had to clean the carpets. The bugs were everywhere and I know it is a wooded area they should not be crawling on your pillows and on the kitchen counter they need to have a bug person spray more often. The screened in patio was nice but we could not open the doors because they were stuck, we called maintenance again and they fixed it best they could but it was so hard to open the doors we rarely used the deck at all. The pool funiture was broke and dirty as I sat down my foot went through the chair and cut my foot bad enough that I had to be put on antibiotics, the funiture on the deck was dirty and the funiture in the house was old and needing updates. We contacted the owner when we came home only to be told that her son visited not long after we left and saw nothing wrong with the place, I am not sure what expectations he has but we expected more and we wanted the place to be a little cleaner and to be able to use the funiture around the house and not to have to check our luggage when we returned home for bugs. I would not recommend this home because of all the work and updates it needs, I think they need to do some work on the house by replacing carpet and funiture and until they do that I would not recommend renting this home.

Owner response: This guest contacted me after her stay with her complaints and I did try to resolve these with her directly. When we leave at the beginning of the summer, the house is in top condition. We depend on the management service to look after the cleaning and maintenance of the house for the enjoyment of our guests over the summer. It seems they did not do an adequate job. We received no reports of problems from the management company over the summer. When we came down to inspect the house in August, we found more than normal wear and tear after a very wet summer. This is now being addressed. Each year we invest in updates to the house. Last year, we replaced the roof, pool heater and filter. Two years ago, we updated the kitchen with all new appliances, counters, sink and faucet. This week, we replaced the screen porch table and chairs. This winter, we plan to replace flooring and update interior rooms. While we do thank this guest for identifying problems, we do have an overall plan for maintaining the house in good condition. We also make an effort to have furnishings that are attractive and pleasing to our guests, but not everyone can be satisfied. The house is treated regularly for pests. This year, with the unusual rain, there may have been more bugs but the pest control service treated for them immediately after the report. I found only two bugs (and dead) during our stay. As for the pool furniture, on inspection we found two broken chaises and nine good ones. The broken ones will be replaced as usual each year. I am sorry this guest hurt her foot, but with normal usage these chaises are very sturdy and safe.
What a wonderful vacation with our family! This property is fabulous! It has everything you need to complete your vacation. The owners have thought of it all. You have all of the comforts of home. The home is very clean and decorated with the relaxing feeling of being "Away From It All". Would highly recommend this home for a family reunion or quiet retreat.

Year Purchased: 2004
Why the Owner Chose Old Seagrove Beach:
For years, we travelled to beaches in the Southeast for summer vacations and weekend trips. The South Walton area has some of the best beaches and a sophisticated small town atmosphere. We bought this house in Old Seagrove because of the 'old Florida' neighborhood feel, with shade trees, sandy streets and limited traffic. Its near enough to all the beach activities but yet quiet and relaxing.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We like to try new restaurants and there are several great places to eat in the Seagrove Beach area. There is fresh seafood from a local market to cook at home, too. The pool is big enough to swim laps or do 'water yoga'. In the afternoon, we can take a short stroll to the beach and relax under an umbrella by the ocean or walk down the beach in the soft, white sand.
