About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Our laid back beach house is just steps from the beautiful white sands of the Gulf of Mexico. And only a block from the popular beach town of Seaside. Sun Thyme is close to all that the Beaches of South Walton have to offer: shopping, restaurants, water sports, fishing, golf, and beaches. 18 miles of paved bike paths for the family to enjoy with easy bike rental delivery and pick-up.

The first floor has a bunk room and a guest room featuring a king bed. There’s also a full bath and den downstairs, complete with a fridge.

Upstairs is a large open family room, dining room and eat-in kitchen. This area is great for entertaining and hanging out after a day at the beach. Enjoy the gulf breeze and glimpses of the Gulf from the deck running the full length of the house.

Also upstairs is a bedroom with a king, another with two x-long twin beds and a full bath with shower. This house is perfect for a couple of families looking to have a classic beach vacation.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We shared this house with another family and it was perfect. The upstairs and downstairs living rooms and large deck gave us plenty of room to spread out. The open kitchen made it easy for us to cook and eat together. The location couldn't be better - just a few blocks from the center of Seaside and a beach access across the street. We would stay here again for sure!

We love Sun Thyme!!!

  • 5 of 5

For the past several years, my husband and I have taken our nieces and nephews to Sun Thyme every Memorial Day! When we first began our trips there, the kids were in high school and early college. This year, two are married and we have a baby vacationer too! This house works very well for all adults, teenagers and kids. We absolutely love this house. The location is great! We can walk to Seaside, V or Village Market for dinner and the beach is right across the road (literally 2 minute walk, max). Thyme Street is a beautiful and quiet street with charming Live Oaks and quaint houses. The house is furnished perfectly, with everything you need for a perfect beach vacation. The Davis' have been so nice every year. We will continue our trip there for many years to come.

We rented this home with another family on Spring Break. It had the perfect location and had a very generous supply of all the kitchen items you could ever need. We were able to cook full meals and not have to "make do" with minimal tools. The owners are amazing to work with and so very kind. The house was very clean. In fact, the cleaning staff was there when we arrived and they were so sweet...really wanted us to be happy with the condition of the home. During our stay the washer stopped working, so we called the owners and the next day a brand new washer was delivered...GOOD NEWS for future renters. :) Also, great parking...a true rarity in the Seaside area.

Owner's Response: Holli, We appreciate your taking the time to leave such a nice review of our Seagrove Beach house. We're so glad that it was such a good fit for your group. With the two living spaces it is great for a couple of families to share. Being walking distance to Seaside is a big bonus as parking has become a real problem there. We look forward to welcoming you back for your next visit.

great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The property is exactly as pictured. House was very clean and all appliances including A/C and washer/dryer were in excellent working order. There are 2 den areas, one on each floor. Excellent if you want to separate the kids/teens from adults. The porch was lovely with the glider swing. We really enjoyed the close proximity to the beach. You are literally on the sand and in your chair in less than 5 min. It only takes a couple of min. by bike to reach the Seaside town square. You will not be disappointed with the sweet beach house. We had a terrific time!!

Owner's Response: When we purchased Sun Thyme we considered making the downstairs den an additional sleeping space but decided having 2 living areas made a lot more sense. It was definitely the right decision.

Great house for families w teens

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic location! One block from Seaside and 2 houses off the beach. Sun Thyme is a casual, charming, light-filled space that was perfect for my need to house adults and teens. The adults took the upstairs and the teens had their own separate "hang out" den downstairs. Parking is difficult to come by in Seaside so we also valued the 4 parking spaces and had friends sometimes park at Sun Thyme then we would all walk into Seaside for dinner.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, parking during high season can be a problem. The area is so great for walking. The only time you'll need your car is when you leave!

Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

The house was incredible. We went down with 9 college kids and a chaperone. The location was perfect, right across the street from a beach access and just a minutes walk from downtown seaside. I'd recommend it to any family or group of kids looking for a house for any type of vacation whether it be just to relax or just to see the town. The downstairs room is perfect to have some people over to hang out too. Loved it here and I plan on returning in the years to come. Owners are very flexible and willing to work with any group as well, huge plus to the property.

Owner's Response: As they say, location, location, location! Which is why we purchased Sun Thyme. Being able to walk to so many entertainments, shops, and restaurants makes life easier. So glad you enjoyed your stay.
