Vacation Description

We have Wi-Fi.

PMID is a pet friendly house. There is a non-refundable pet fee of $150.

Our golf cart is available for $75/wk or $12/day.

Our family LOVES to ride bikes all around the 30-A area. It is an extremely bike friendly area with lots of bike paths. We have ridden to Seaside, which is 8 miles away, on several occasions. We have made arrangements with Big Fish Bike Rentals to keep 4 bikes at our house. Because of that, we are able to offer you a discounted rate for the bikes. The normal weekly rate is $55/wk per bike, however, by allowing them to keep the 4 bikes at our house, we are able to offer them to you for $30/wk per bike.

'Pinch Me, I’m Dreaming' is located in the private community of Seacrest Beach, right next to Rosemary Beach. Our home is just a short walk to the gorgeous Emerald Coast Beaches or you can climb aboard Seacrest Beach’s private beach shuttle that will pick you up at our front door and take you right to the beach! Take a leisurely stroll down our brick paver streets lined with palm trees and you will discover the beautiful 12,000 square foot swimming pool area with waterfalls, fountains, two bath houses and plenty of space to soak up the sun.

Pinch Me, I’m Dreaming is a four-bedroom, four bath beach home that has been furnished with those special extras that will make your vacation more relaxing. The 42” LCD Flat screen TV in the Living Room will allow you to catch the game or watch a movie with your family. The gourmet kitchen is set off by granite countertops and is fully equipped with everything you will need, whether you just want to brew an excellent cup of coffee to enjoy on the tower deck or prepare a full meal for everyone in the house. The Cottage White Queen Size Bedroom is located on the first floor with an adjacent bathroom. The laundry room is also on the first floor and features a full size washer and dryer.

The second floor houses the two very large King Size Master Suites. One of the Master bathrooms features a separate shower with the incredibly relaxing overhead “Rain” shower head as well as a Jacuzzi tub.

On the third level you will find the large bedroom that was furnished with our two children and their cousins in mind. It has a twin over full bunk bed and a twin bed with a pull out trundle bed which allows a total of five people to sleep comfortably in this room. The third floor also has one of our favorite getaways in the house, the tower bar and covered deck. From the deck you can enjoy the gulf breezes and the vivid sunsets.

Pinch Me, I’m Dreaming has a TV and DVD player in every bedroom in addition to the 42” Flat Screen with DVD player in the Living Room. We keep a golf cart at the house for our guests to take to the pool or just go for a pleasant ride through the neighborhood (Additional Fee of $75/wk or longer stays or $12/day for less than one week stays).

There are plenty of golfing opportunities within a few miles of our home. Rosemary Beach offers clay court tennis weekly memberships or lessons. Outlet shopping, outdoor concerts, and a wide variety of restaurants are within walking distance up to a 15 minute drive away.

If you enjoy biking or jogging, there is a 19 mile long paved bike/jogging/walking path that will take you through all the beachside communities along Scenic Hwy. 30-A.

The free Seacrest Beach Tram Service runs from the second week of March until the first weekend in October.

About The Owner

We are Jim, Melissa, Jake(16) and Mallory(14) from Georgia.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose Florida North West

We love the laid back pace of this beautiful part of the Emerald coast. There are no crowds to contend with, no elevators and most of all, no schedule!

What makes this house unique

We love the sugar white sand at the beach and the turquoise water of the Gulf. Our kids could spend all day at the 12,000sf pool!

Great Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5

As a family we have stayed in many rental homes along 30-A. We really enjoyed the location of Pinch Me, I'm Dreaming! The owner was so easy to work with, he had helpful instructions and surprised us with donuts. We spent the long Thanksgiving weekend and the house was stocked with everything we needed. Will definitely be back.

Great house for two families!

  • 5 of 5

The house is HUGE, clean and comfortable. The use of the bikes and the golf cart is a really nice bonus. It's at the end of a street, and therefore a bit quieter (especially during a crowded holiday weekend). The walk to the beach was a bit far for my 4 year old, but the tram is incredibly quick and easy. The walk to Seacrest Village also a bit far for my youngest - but the kids LOVED taking the golf cart to the restaurants. Jim was very easy to work with and accommodating. Overall, a truly perfect weekend getaway for two families with young kids.

Optimal location, Outstanding home, responsive Owner, great experience!

  • 5 of 5

My family (including our family pets) stayed for at PMID during the week of August 13. We had a really great time. The home is well outfitted and the overall layout of rooms and spaces is very good. Balcony views offer amazing views to both the north and the south.

We especially enjoyed the proximity to the front of Seacrest, the pool is only a couple of blocks away and the beach tram was never more than 5 minutes away.

The property is located on the far west end of Seacrest and it is bordered by an access trail which made it especially easy to walk to 30A to take morning and afternoon walks. Proximity to Alys by walking is only a short 8 minute stroll. All of the designated pet walk areas had ready to use "doggy bag" stations and so did most of the neighboring communities (e.g. Alys Beach).

This home comes with a golf cart which made traveling to the pool area (recommend parking on some available spaces directly across from the northwest pool entry) as well as to the commons area where retail and food were very good.

A highlight of our experience was the attentiveness and thoughtfulness of property Owner / Operator Mr. James Hunt. He was EXCEPTIONAL to work with from the very first inquiry about the property and throughout agreement duration.

We highly recommend this property to anyone who is interested in an exceptional vacation / visit along the Gulf Coast and especially if you have well behaved pets !!!

User experience advice to pass forward:

1) there is a very well thought users manual in the unit, read it !

2) golf cart - follow the user manual and text on refrigerator directions fully; when you first arrive, consider testing the cart for level of charge (insert key, turn on lights); if it needs a charge follow directions and user charger stored in the pantry closet; recommend charging from rear porch outlet (not laundry exit outlet) - however, be aware that exterior outlet adjacent to the laundry exit is a GFI, check to make sure the GFI is engaged to allow for charging.

3) pool access- take card (red lanyard) to pool attendant and obtain wrist bands for site/beach access (do this ahead of going anywhere bands are needed)

4) grill - bring charcoal / lighter fluid / etc if you plan to use

5) beach - pay attention to tram hours, umbrella rental areas and their rules, bring food/drinks to support lengthy stay - ENJOY !

Perfect four bedroom house at Seacrest

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented Pinch Me I'm Dreaming for some of our guests of our son's wedding. It couldn't have been any better. Each of the four bedrooms had their own bathroom. The house was impeccably clean and well appointed. The decor was very attractive as well. There was also plenty of parking. The owner always returned my emails and calls within a few hours. I highly recommend this home for family's or several couples as well.

We enjoyed the house and would have given 5 stars if it wasn't for the horrible mattresses

  • 4 of 5

We liked the location of this house and the layout. The porches were great and the streets were perfect for bike riding. The only thing that bothered us were the beds. No one could get comfortable because the mattresses sank down making a huge hole to try to sleep in. The kitchen was nice but missing a few essentials if you plan to cook - no 9x13 pans and no pitchers to mix drinks in. Also there is only a tiny charcoal grill so we decided to skip grilling this year. Overall it was a nice home but we are used to a few more amenities.

Owner's Response: We will be there next week for a routine maintenance trip. We do our best to keep the kitchen stocked, but sometimes during the busy season things get broken, lost or accidentally thrown away. I will bring another pitcher and a 9 x 13 baking pan. As far as the mattresses are concerned, this is the first negative comment I have heard about them. I will check them out next week and replace or flip if necessary. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.
