Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 7

As its name implies, The Grove by the Sea neighborhood is a peaceful, tree-lined community that is located directly across from the beautiful emerald beaches of South Walton. Beach access is a short walk from the home, as are two private neighborhood pools, a tennis court and children's playground. Its proximity to nearby beach villages Seaside, Watercolor, Grayton Watersound, Alys and Rosemary make the SandBox an ideal location for all that 30-A has to offer.

Greeting you at the home will be a large porch adorned with four Adirondack chairs, perfect for that morning cup of coffee. Inside, the SandBox is approximately 1700 square feet with an open floor plan that is perfect for entertaining. Featured in the living space is a 55 inch HDTV along with a music sound-bar. SandBox has a fully-stocked kitchen with plenty of counter space. Also on the main level is a Master Bedroom with a King-sized bed, TV, and plenty of storage.

The second level of the home is appointed with two additional bedrooms, the larger featuring another King-sized bed, sitting area with TV and a private entrance to the large, private screened porch which provides sweeping views of the tree lined neighborhood - a great venue for an evening cocktail! The second bedroom upstairs has a full-sized bed along with a twin-sized bed, TV and ample closet space.

The home is nestled up against a Forest, its enviable location allowing for maximum privacy and the least amount of neighborhood through-traffic. On a quiet afternoon relax in the two-person hammock with your favorite book or loved one.

Come Stay and Play in our SandBox!

Reviewer Comments:

Overall my experience was excellent. For me the location was (is) perfect - close enough for easy beach access yet far enough from the highway to provide peace and quiet. Benchmark Management was very helpful and cooperative the entire time. The house was clean and well furnished. I would recommend it.

Very nice and clean!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Sandbox! We absolutely loved the house. It is very well kept and has everything you need. The neighborhood was so quiet, kid and dog friendly, and very peaceful and relaxing. The beach wasn't too far. You can definitely walk there, but renting a golf cart is fun too. I would highly recommend this property. We had the best time!!

Ideal Seaside experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I traveled with our 2 teenaged daughters and one of their friends - the house was perfect for us. Our hostess gave us good guidance on bicycle and chair rentals to make our arrival easy once we got to the beach. The house is clean, comfortable and had a well-stocked kitchen and is a convenient/quick bike ride to the beach and short walk to one of two neighborhood pools which were never crowded. Our girls and their friend appreciated the fact that they could ride their bikes to the beach or downtown Seaside without having us along - we did, too! The bedroom configuration with a downstairs master and two bedrooms upstairs with a shared bath and screened porch was perfect when the adults/teenagers wanted some separation. The living space was comfortable and ideal when we all came together to play cards or dine in the evening. We also appreciated the smoked mackerel dip Nancy brought us one night - all in all, a great experience!

The perfect vacation experience

Adorable clean, nicely decorated, comfortable home. Really enjoyed th screened porch upstairs in the evenings and the front porch for morning coffee. Very convenient to everything but still quiet and private. Everything we needed for the perfect vacation was provided here. We are already

Planning our next trip!

Lovely, quiet place at the beach

  • 5 of 5

We usually stay at a large resort closer to Destin. This year, we decided to venture out and stay on 30a. We could not have selected a better home. Easy walk to the beach made it great for our family of four. It's also close to a number of very good restaurants but still a quiet, peaceful property. And the kitchen was well stocked making it easy to eat at home. We hope to stay at the Sandbox in the future.
