  • Perfect Vacation, Can't Wait to Come Back!

    "We absolutely loved our stay at Pert-Near-Perfect. The owners take great pride in making their home comfortable for guests and making you feel at home when you step foot in the door. Our group consisted of two couples in their mid-twenties, and we loved everything about the house. The second floor deck was a nice retreat for me and my husband, and we all played cards regularly outside on the beautiful screened in porch. The kitchen was well stocked, perfect for cooking in if you didn't want to eat out the entire trip. We biked everywhere (including the beach that is within easy walking/biking distance) and loved the area, which was very quiet and family friendly. We never felt anything but safe and comfortable during our stay. There were beach toys and chairs at the house available for use, which I thought was a nice touch for families. The Seaside square was about a 10-15 minute bike ride, probably 20-30 minute walk. We barely used our vehicle unless we were going out of the area. When you leave the community, there is a public beach access directly in front of you (across 30A), which made easy trips back and forth to the beach. We also used the pool a few times, and were happy to have that option available to us. As far as nearby food & activities, what didn't we enjoy? We tried almost all of the food trucks (Meltdown and Barefoot BBQ were probably the overall favorites), enjoyed the french toast at Pickles (just wished the service was a bit friendlier, but the delicious french toast and home fries made up for it!), loved the donuts from Charlie's (just get there early!), enjoyed breakfast and a delicious dinner at Great Southern Cafe (my husband is still raving about it, calling it the best meal he has ever had), and we all loved our dinners at Bud & Alley's Pizza & Taco Bar. If you go to the nearby restaurant, Whiskey Bravo, you must try the fried mac & cheese bites. Absolutely the best! As far as activities, the boys went and golfed at Santa Rosa Beach Club and really enjoyed the course, while my sister-in-law and I indulged in a massage at Beach Ready Spa and followed that with a fun paint-your-own-pottery course at Fired Up. I highly recommend both! The staff at Fired Up was very friendly, and we both loved having something we created to remember our trip by. There's plenty to do in the area for people of all ages, but honestly, we spent the majority of time at the beach, or relaxing in this beautiful home. You won't regret staying here!"

  • Perfect for Girls’ Getaway

    "This was our second trip to Seagrove Sunrise in four years and the house was again a perfect fit for five women on a getaway week. Many recent updates to an already perfect home – the owners, who are very kind and very responsive, have great taste in décor and understand quality comforts. The linens, towels, furnishings, kitchen supplies and backyard grill are all the best I have ever seen at a vacation rental. We enjoyed at least two short walks to the beach every day, sunning on white sand during the day and never missing the spectacular sunset each evening. Even watched dolphins from the shore! We jumped on bikes to tour the adorable 30A community and Seaside, always loved returning to the peaceful Grove by the Sea neighborhood and very comfortable house. Spacious for five of us to hang out and by far the best place to start and finish each vacation day. We are not waiting 4 years to return to this home and highly recommend it for friends and families!"

  • Pure Perfection!

    "This was our second time at Kismet and it lived up to it's reputation as our favorite house in our favorite neighborhood in our favorite seaside town. The house additions just made our stay that much more enjoyable for our family of four and two extra guests. My only regret is that we didn't spend more time in the media room but we did love the big screen and surround sound when we did get to watch a movie. The back screened porch really helped in extending our livable space and gave 6 adults plenty of space to have some alone time. I loved reading in the big chairs in the master sitting room and enjoyed the privacy the lot provided, even on the front porch. Pure perfection!"

  • Great For Families

    "This house is in a very quite neighborhood in SeaGrove just a few minutes from the beach. The design of the home is excellent with the four bedrooms, open living area, and wonderful kitchen. We used the pool every day and had breakfast or lunch out on the back patio daily. The kids loved catching frogs and lizards in the back yard. I have recomended this home to friends and family and plan on returning next summer."
