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 Beaches of South Walton

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!

Awesome family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time taking our daughter ages 14 &11 to the ocean. The home was amazing. Each of the towns were so cute and quaint, and the riding bikes everywhere was prefect and the ocean was more than what they thought. We will definitely make this a yearly trip! We loved that Jim sent over donuts the first morning. So nice. We did make sure to pick up dishwasher packets since none was left nor dish soap but the place was perfect. We couldn't ask for anything more. Loved that it was on a dead end too. See you next year paradise !

Owner's Response: What an exciting trip to let your girls experience the ocean for the first time! I'm glad you enjoyed the donuts, the bikes and the house. I'm sorry about the dishwasher packs and dish soap. That is something that is normally left out by the cleaning company for each new guest. I will follow up and make sure the cleaning company remembers to do that each time. We hope to hear from you again for your next trip to paradise. :)

Perfect location & owner is amazingly helpful.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 along with my sister and parents had an amazing time. The golf cart was so helpful for my father who lack mobility. The beach shuttle was also very accommodating to my parents. Jim Hunt (owner) was so kind and patient with me. Not to mention the donuts and coffee he sent us on our first morning. We hope to return. Thank you for a great family trip!!!

Second stay. Nice quiet location. Very well appointed. Shop and restaurants had limit hours or closed between January 2nd and mid to late Febuary. Nice surprise Jim had coffee and donuts deliver the first morning. Condo is laid out nicely with lots of room for every one to do there own thing. We liked the porches on every floor both front and back. Well maintained and the golf cart and the bikes are a real plus.

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.
