Overview

About the property

Steps to Beach Access, Two story End Unit Townhome, 2 BR, 2.5 BA, Sleeps eight

Thank you for visiting our website.

Our property is only 275 yards (3 to 4 minutes walk) from a private beach access and was just updated including king and queen pillow top beds, new stainless appliances, new flat screen TVs, various new furniture and decor, additional sleeper sofas, paint and carpet. The property looks like new!

Inspired by Nature is located in Cassine Gardens in Seagrove Beach, FL. Seagrove Beach is approximately one mile from Seaside and only a few miles from Grayton, Rosemary and Seacrest Beaches.

Cassine is a great location, especially for families. It's situated in a cypress grove along a state forest so it's very peaceful. In addition to the beautiful beach, the property offers miles of nature, fitness and biking trails, two pools, two tennis courts, a private lake with a gazebo and grills for cookouts and a basketball hoop. The lake is stocked so kids can fish in the lake as well.

Our townhome is a spacious (1,200 sqft) two-story end unit with 2BR and 2.5 BA that sleeps up to eight. The property is conveniently located only 275 yards (3 to 4 minutes walk) from a private beach access. It is also located next to one of the entrances to our nature trails and less than 100 yards from one of two pools, the lake and the tennis courts.

The townhome offers a fully furnished kitchen and a secluded deck off the living room. The master has a king bed, private bath and private balcony. The second bedroom has a queen size bed, a bunk bed and a private balcony. The bunk is a double futon bunk that sleeps 2 on the bottom and one on top. There is also a new, queen size sleeper sofa in the living room. Both bedrooms have fans. There are flat screen TVs and DVD players in each of the bedrooms and the living room. There is also a stereo and video / reading library in the living room.

We also provide complimentary beach equipment, two adult bikes and an initial supply of paper and soap products with this property.

We own two properties in Cassine. They are approximately 150 yards from one another. The other is Poolside Serentiy (VRBO #802171). Please let us know if you are interested in renting both properties for large parties. We take pride in our guests’ experiences and hope you chose to stay with us at one of our properties.

About Quinton

Thank you for visiting our website.

My wife Anne and our son, Quinton, purchased Inspired by Nature in 1997. My wife and I live in South Bend, IN. Our son lives in Charlotte, NC. We have come to love Seagrove Beach and Cassine Gardens so much that we purchased a second property, a beach home in Cassine in 2005. If you are part of a large group, and need two properties, or our townhome is rented please check out our beach home on VRBO. Our home is property number 223454.

Quinton purchased this townhome in 1997

Why Quinton chose Beaches of South Walton

We fell in love with Seagrove Beach, especially Cassine Gardens. Seagrove was laid back and intent on not becoming commercialized like Destin or Panama City. The beaches were also incredible. The sand is powdery white and the water is an incredible emerald color almost year round. That's probably why the Gulf Coast is regularly included in the Beaches of the Year awards. As for Cassine, it offered a unique beach / serene nature setting. The homes and townhomes are spread throughout a cypress grove so the area is quiet and peaceful. We knew after visiting Seagrove that we had found our second home!

What makes this townhome unique

Cassine offers a serene nature and beach setting. It also offers two pools, two tennis courts, nature and fitness trails and a small lake with a gazebo and grills. As for our unit, we also offer two free adult bikes so that you can enjoy the nearby bike trails and free beach equipment. On top of this, the unit is only 275 yards from the beach access.

Quiet Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Cassine Gardens is a great little neighborhood tucked right off of 30A. Condo was very clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. Brand new king bed in master was very comfortable. The neighborhood was quiet and allowed my daughter and I to ride bikes, go for walks in the evenings and enjoy our stay free from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives.

We enjoyed private beach access, complimentary bike and beach chair usage. The pools were great and provided a break from the beautiful beach.

Theresa was great and very attentive to our needs. Super easy to work with and talk to. Always available when I needed her. Quinton is also very involved making sure our stay was perfect. From beginning to end this was a great experience. We use VRBO a lot and this property did not disappoint! We will definitely be returning.

Thank you Quinton and Teresa for a great vacation. Until next time!

Excellent place to relax & stay in Seagrove!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week stay at Inspired by Nature. The townhouse was very accommodating, cozy, and nicely decorated and furnished. Quinton and Teresa both checked in with us to make sure we were settled in and to see if we needed anything. Extremely hospitable and very much appreciated. This townhouse offers a quiet space in the woods & a short walk to the beach, and I do mean a short walk to the beach. You won't find this combination very often. The bikes provided were a huge hit w/ our two teenagers!! I highly recommend Inspired by Nature. You will not be disappointed. Thank you, Quinton & Teresa.

Great location-great communication-good condo

  • 4 of 5

Owner was great about keeping in touch with us and the location of this condo is excellent. Short walk to the beach and pool is very near. My only negatives are that the bikes are rough (chain fell off of one and my teen girl had to fix it to make it back, one has a tire that rubs and makes a loud noise the whole time it's being ridden, and one has a seat that isn't properly attached). You will probably want to rent bikes instead of counting on the ones at the condo.

The floors weren't clean (we swept right when we got there and swept up food that we didn't have with us so we know it wasn't ours). I understand that it's a cleaning service that comes in between tenants but they could do a much better job.

The decorating is sort of garage sale meets beach condo. But there are lots of linens and towels available so don't worry about packing any of those.

Also there are lots of beach chairs and toys and that's helpful to not have to lug those from home.

I would stay at the property again if I were in the area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the favorable review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and would return to visit our townhome when you return to the area. I only wish you would have called us about the bike or cleaning. Our manager is onsite and would have stopped by same day to address both issues. If a guest does not call, we don't have the opportunity to solve the issue. We did leave out two extra bikes, free of charge so hopefully you got to use those in place of the one you mentioned. As you can imagine, they get used heavily so we keep spares. Again, all you had to do was call. If our manager can't repair them, she pulls out a spare and sends the bike for repair. As far as the decor, we recently updated the property and included a lot of the hand made, eclectic items that were made by my sister. She was an artist that lived there for several years. She supplied a lot of her work to local stores..... Sorry you have different tastes. Please call us when you return. We would welcome the opportunity to have you back.

Great location & Easy Beach Access

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Inspired by Nature! The location was perfect with easy access to the beach and beautiful nature trails. The bikes provided allowed us to get some exercise each day after eating all of the wonderful food at the nearby restaurants. Wide bike paths allowed use of the bikes to move between all of the beaches - Rosemary, Seagrove, Seaside! I loved all of these quaint little areas! Will definitely be back :)

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are glad you had a great time with us. We agree, the bike trails are great and allow easy bike access to all the other great beach communities. The only problem is so little time and so many great places to go on a visit! Please let us know when you plan to return to the area. We would welcome the opportunity to have you.

Great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Well stocked kitchen with plenty of linens and towels for our family of six. Clean and roomy with plush bedding. Loved the proximity to beach, the pool, and restaurants. Enjoyed bike rides and walks on the nature trails. Looking forward to staying again.
