Vacation Description

We have Wi-Fi.

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

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 the end of the street 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 50” LED 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 50” Flat Screen with DVD player in the Living Room.

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!

Not up to par

  • 3 of 5

This was our second stay at PMID BUT we were a little disappointed. Starting with the first floor bedroom: the mattress was awful and the bed was so squeaky that we couldn't sleep well. There was so much dust and even some garbage underneath the bed. The dining/living area could use more comfortable seating. Upstairs: The lights and fans in one of the upstairs bedroom didn't work. In general: The golf cart is in need of repair. Lastly Although the development rules and security are not controlled by you I have to mention the problem we had with them. I am unable to walk more than a few feet at a time so we needed to use the golf cart to get to and from the pool. In the past years that we've stayed in Seacrest my husband would drive me all the way up to the gate of the pool to drop me off and we never had any problems with security hassling us about it but this time one guard in particular told us we weren't allowed to drive on the sidewalk. We explained that I was unable to walk very far but she still warned us to not do it again. . She was very rude and uncaring. After that this same guard seemed to target us for everything. It made us all very ubcomfortable.

Great clean home and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took both of our parents and our siblings to stay for the weekend and the home was absolutely perfect for us. The community is super cute and the house is perfectly situated with a beautiful view over Alys Beach and the water. It was great to be in walking distance to Alys Beach, Seacrest Village and Rosemary Beach. Everything was clean upon arrival and the rooms were extremely spacious. You wouldn't know that the house was dog friendly like places we've stayed in the past because it was so clean. Jim Hunt and his family were great hosts, even having a dozen donuts delivered our first morning in the home! Would absolutely recommend staying here!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Bain! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. I will tighten the bed frames up on my next maintenance trip. The colored bands are a bit of an inconvenience, however, Seacrest Beach has become a very popular destination so the Homeowner's Association has developed the weekly color change system to insure only current guests or owners are using the amenities.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Pinch me I'm dreaming was a fantastic place to stay. It was the perfect size for the 10 people we had in our group. We all loved the upstairs deck or "party porch" as we called it. it would have been pure perfection if the fridge upstairs had been working to save us running up and down the stairs for drinks, but really who can't use the extra steps! We had one issue with someone taking the parking space out front. We needed all three spots we were told we could have.When we contacted security they were not at all helpful in fact they were more confused than anything. Thankfully the owner of the vehicle came and removed the car so the issue was resolved. Overall I couldn't have asked for any place better and will definitely stay again! Oh and thanks for the donuts, they were enjoyed by all!

Great place for whole family beach vacation including our dog!

  • 5 of 5

Vacation friendly neighborhood, gorgeous large pool, free tram in neighborhood for access to beach and pool. Convenient golf cart and bikes available at house. Kitchen was well equipped and house was spacious - room for everyone. House was casually furnished - family friendly. Private beach access had many steps down - not accessible for someone with bad knees, but there are 2 other public access beaches a short drive away that were beautiful and easy to get to. Our entire family had a great time.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review! We have also used the public beach access at Inlet Beach at times because of the accessibility with no stairs.
