About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

The Seabiscuit, a beautiful, three-story, 3 bedroom/3 bath plus bunk area, custom-designed home is located in the widely popular Summer's Edge -- a beachside family community located between Seaside and Rosemary Beach on the beach side of 30-A.

Complete with lounging decks, the Seabiscuit is 30 steps from the heated community pool and just a short stroll to the pristine Gulf beaches (50 yards) over private beach walk-down.

Our home is tastefully furnished with antique pine and West Indies-style furniture, slip-covered sofas, and a fully-equipped gourmet kitchen with all stainless steel appliances. The floors in main living areas and all bedrooms are hardwoods. The spacious first-floor living space includes a 37 inch Flat Screen TV, DVD, and VCR and a gas fireplace for those chilly winter nights. We also have a covered porch with a porch swing and rocking chair for those that like to sit back and read a good book or listen to the sounds of the waves from the Gulf.

All the bedrooms and living areas include ceiling fans. With three bedrooms and a kid's bunk area, including two second floor master suites (king-size beds), one with jacuzzi tub in bath in addition to cable TV and DVD/VCR and the other with full entertainment center (27-inch TV, DVD, and VCR) and one bedroom (queen-size bed) on the first floor, the Seabiscuit is a wonderful place for families with children or a group of friends to vacation. The tower room and deck makes it all complete with a pull-out sofa bed and mini-bar overlooking the Gulf!

Complete your day with the sunset and gentle breezes over-looking the Gulf of Mexico. The Seabiscuit has such a relaxing atmosphere the only decision you'll have to make is whether to spend the day at the beach, or pool, or golf course, or shopping, or bicycling, or hiking, or just taking a nap!

About Kimberly Smith

When my husband and I first got married he told me that when he turned 40 he wanted his mid-life crisis to be a beach home and in October of 2003 the Seabiscuit became our second home. We had the closing on a Friday and celebrated him turning 40 on Saturday. I could not have asked for a better mid-life crisis.

Kimberly Smith purchased this house in 2003

Why Kimberly Smith chose Beaches of South Walton

We chose the Seabiscuit and Summer's Edge for several reasons. First, at the time we purchased our home our children were 4, 6 and 8 years of age so we wanted a home that was on the beach side of 30-A, close to the beach with views, something in a neighborhood so that our kids would be able to play, and lastly I wanted to be close enough to a pool that I could enjoy a mom moment and still be able to see the kids or hear them through a baby monitor. We also have a special needs son so we wanted to make sure that we found a home that would allow him to come and go from the beach and pool without our help. Summer's Edge and the Seabiscuit met each and every one of our needs.

What makes this house unique

When staying at the Seabiscuit you will enjoy the fact that you are only 50 yards to the ocean, with views on all 3 levels, 1 lot from the beach access and only about 30 steps from 1 of 2 community pools. Our home features porches on all 3 levels with either porch swings, rocking chairs or sun chairs so there are plenty of places to get away for some quite time. We have 3 main master suites so each family member will have their own space. Because I have 3 children, our home is very family oriented and once you open the front doors you will feel right at home. Our home is equipped with everything you will need to have that perfect family vacation. The only thing you will need to bring is yourself and your beach towel.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed staying in Seabiscuit. It was wonderful staying in not just a rental but a home. Kimberly, you said it correctly that we could leave everything behind because you have it all her at our disposal - from bikes to tupperware to fans in every room!! We will certainly recommend your home for others who are staying in the area. This is the third time we have stayed in the neighborhood and your home was the best. Thank you so much for your willingness to share with those seeking a vacation in such a beautiful atmosphere.

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay! The house is spacious and comfortable. It is so close to the pool and a short walk to the beach. Also, it has bikes, beach chairs, and umbrellas for you to use. It is close to Seaside and the activities there but quiet on a secluded side street. The owners are great to work with. We would definitely stay here again!

Great property, well located, professional handling of all services

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one week Spring break 2016 with 6 family members. The home is well equipped, in convenient distant to the beaches and in a calm side street. Everything was in good working order and we found the home well suited for a family vacation. The home is much better equipped than the "average" rental property. Well equipped and spacious for 6 people. It is noteworthy for larger groups that the 2 bunk beds are in the hallway of the second floor and not separated by doors from the common areas.

Everything else, handling of the reservation, payment and refund of deposit worked very well and flawless. The property was clean and well-maintained.

Nice beaches, great restaurants and lots of beach life make this a perfect staying location for a family vacation!

Fantastic house

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED staying in Seabiscuit and of all the places we've stayed this was our favorite. It's a quick walk to the beach and was so convenient being right at the pool entrance. The furniture is comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked with good knives and cooking supplies. The decor is also nice. The owners are great to work with and very quick in communicating. They even have little niceties such as cotton balls, q-tips, travel size shampoo/conditioner and pens and paper set out so you feel right at home. Lots of books, games, movies, beach chairs and toys to enjoy as well.

Perfect beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We usually stay in a condo, but my teens and I wanted a little more room to spread out. Seabiscuit was the perfect house for us, as we each had our own bedroom and bathroom. The decor was absolutely beautiful; loved all the artwork. Such nice attention to detail. Beds were incredibly comfortable - we wanted to sleep in every day! Kitchen was well equipped - can't think of anything we couldn't find. The walk to the beach was a breeze and we loved having the pool right outside the front door. So convenient. I think our favorite space in the house was the tower deck. Watched many sunsets and enjoyed a nightcap most evenings before bed, just relaxing and listening to the waves. All and all, perfect location, all the comforts of home, and a cute, cozy, beach chic vibe. And to top it all off, Kim was a pleasure to deal with - the rental process was seamless.

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this beach home. We went with three couples and two small children. There was plenty of space for all of us. We felt right at home and enjoyed the pool and walked to the beach several times a day. It is a great location and we hope to visit again someday!

Perfect Fall Break vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10/12/13 to 10/19/13 at Seabiscuit. Our children have a week vacation from school. When we planned the trip, we knew we wanted to go to Florida, we had no idea how perfect Seabiscuit was going to be for us. We had 2 families (4 adults, 4 girls ages 6-10).

Seabiscuit had everything we wanted and needed. The home was very charming and comfortable. We spent every morning and some evenings at the beach. It was such a short easy walk. The pool was steps from the front door, that was a nice change for our afternoons.

We loved the quiet street for our kids to ride their skooters around. The area was great for meals out and shopping.

We met our vacationing next door neighbors. They had several kids too. The kids played so well together.

Thank you so much for sharing Seabiscuit with us. We plan to make this an annual trip!
