She loves to garden, bike, read and be with her family and grandchildren. We have three married children, five grandchildren, one great granddaughter and a great grandson.

Betty Fischer purchased this house in 2005

Why Betty Fischer chose Seacrest Beach

We purchashed Palm Cove in May, 2005 to be near our son and his family in Santa Rosa Beach, FL. We loved the quiet community, private beach access, close to all of the Seaside activities and other communities, the bike paths and numerous, fabulous restaurants.

What makes this house unique

There is nothing more unique than sitting in the hot tub on the fourth floor Sun and Observation Deck, listening to the ocean sounds, smelling the wonderful sea air and watching the fabulous sunsets. Or watching fireworks for miles around on special occasions. Biking on our many bike trails, to our wonderful outdoor restaurants and activities.

It is also pretty cool to go outside and pick fruit off of the fruit trees. The grandchildren love it. For all of you familiar with the best lemons in the country, the Meyer Lemon, there is a tree. This lemon ripens in the fall.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Good Morning Betty,

I want to tell you how much we enjoyed your beautiful home a couple of weeks ago. It was so warm, inviting, and beautiful. We sat in the den and kitchen everyday and created lots of memories. The wedding we attended in Seaside was beautiful, right on the beach, but we basically had our own private beach right across the street and took advantage of it being less crowded.

You were most helpful through this entire experience. We will definitely go back!

We had a wonderful time, the house is very close to the beach (although those stairs up can be tiring :)). We visited nearby seaside and rosemary beach just a short drive to many wonderful locations and conveniences. The hot tub was wonderful - we spent a lot of time in there. And the double headed shower - well lets just say we still miss that and are wondering if we can get one for our house. We would definately use this house again in the future. Very very happy.

beautiful, peaceful, friendly neighborhood, close to beach

  • 5 of 5

We love staying in this home. It feels like a home away from home with a beautiful yard in a lovely, peaceful neighborhood but still only steps from the beach. Our family's favorite spot is the roof...we love to sit up there at sunset and into the evening.

The owners are the best. Very kind and accomodating.

Beautiful Home and Warm and Wonderful Owner

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over Thansgiving weekend and had a blast! The home is very comfortable, clean, well maintained and just as pictured. We loved the location. A very quick walk to the beach and also close to restaurants and shopping but without the congested crowd. We really love the 30a area. The owner is responsive and warm. We couldn't have asked for more. I would recommend to family and fried with no hesitations. Great place!!

Beautiful property owned by beautiful people

  • 5 of 5

This property had been at the top of my favorites list for a while, partly because of the enthusiastic positive reviews. Planning a last minute trip, my husband and I contacted the property owner, who helped us finalize the reservation around 5:00 on Friday, in preparation for a Saturday reservation (really last minute). Well, Saturday morning we found out our family dog (our "child") had to be placed in the hospital for several days. Unfortunately, we had to cancel our trip. We had not purchased travel insurance, which covers emergency cancellations. We contacted the property owner as soon as we knew the situation, and she was so understanding, and graciously agreed to reverse the transaction for us.

I'm afraid we never actually saw the property itself. If we ever get the chance to book again, we certainly will. I hope those reading will not take this as an invitation to take advantage of the owners' generosity, but simply understand the goodness of the people you will be dealing with if you book this property. HomeAway is about more than property - it's about people, too.

Betty (and Herb!) thank you so much for helping make a difficult situation a little easier!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Will and Lindsey. Life is about more than collecting a few dollars. It is caring for people. You two would gladly have given up the money you had paid to be with your precious "furry" child. Herb and I knew what you were going through and only wish we could have done more to help you through a painful situation. Take care and we hope that one day you will be able to take Charlie to Palm Cove. Herb and Betty

Owner's Response: Hillary thank you for your attentiveness to our home, the grounds and neighbors. Our cleaning staff could not believe there had been a wedding and reception there.
