Experience the vacation of a lifetime at Seacrest Beach Resort. This is a family oriented community, with palm tree-lined paved roads, nestled between Rosemary Beach and Alys Beach and just a short drive to Seaside, Grayton State Park and Watercolor. There is a selection of Golf Courses to choose from, including Tom Fazio's Camp Creek. The award winning quartz sandy beaches of the Emerald Coast are second to none and the 12000 sq ft lagoon pool, with waterfalls and fountains, is spectacular.

Sandy Craic (Gaelic for 'fun times' and pronounced 'crack') is located at the front of the resort. It has both sea and pool views. It is directly across from the entrance to the pool and only a short stroll to the beach. There is also a free tram service if you need assistance with all that beach 'stuff'.

Situated on Seacrest Blvd, you can enjoy watching the world go by on the front deck, or retreat to the back deck, where the kids have the safety of a cul de sac road to play and ride bikes. It has two large masters, which is ideal for multiple families. It is very spacious, comprising of over 2400 square feet. There is a total of six decks, offering great views of the pool and the sea. Each bedroom has its own private deck, complete with outdoor furniture.

'Sandy Craic' has been professionally decorated, with comfort and convenience in mind. New hardwood flooring just installed in all the bedrooms... so no carpet now! The dining area has a large table, seating 10-12 guests, and the living area has three comfy leather sofas. The kitchen is fully equipped, along with stainless appliances and granite countertops. There is a bedroom with a queen pillow top bed, which has its own deck. A laundry room and bathroom complete this level.

On the second floor, we have a kids room , which has 2 sets of bunks (twin over full), a queen sofa sleeper, and their own bathroom. This room is very spacious, so your small ones can play here and not disturb others. There is also a family room on this level, consisting of another set of bunks and a king bed (with a pillow top mattress). The master bath has a rain shower and garden style tub. You can enjoy spending lazy evenings on the private deck.

Finally on the third level we have another master bedroom, with king bed (pillow top) and jacuzzi tub. There is also an oversized sofa, that can convert to a bed if needed, or just to sit back and enjoy a good book. There are fantastic sea views from the private deck of the bedroom, or step across the hall and admire the pool from the front deck. The deck has cushioned patio furniture, so you can relax in comfort. There is also a wet bar with refrigerator, on this level, for your convenience.

'Sandy Craic' has TVs in all the bedrooms and a larger one in the living area. Four of which are DVD combos, and Xbox with games for the kiddos. There is a home entertainment center in the living room, complete with surround sound. We also offer WiFi,

We supply a selection of bikes for your pleasure, to tour the neighborhood, at no additional cost. There are several beach chairs, floaties and beach towels provided for your convenience.

About Lisa Howard

My husband and I are both from Ireland. We now live in Austin, Texas, with our four children. I wish we lived closer!

Lisa Howard purchased this house in 2008

Why Lisa Howard chose Florida

We choose Seacrest Beach because of the quality of the development, the huge lagoon pool, the tram service, the entertainment and the selection of restaurants and shopping close by. The location and spaciousness of the house was an added bonus!

What makes this house unique

The house is so convenient to the pool, just to be able to walk across the street is ideal. Not to mention the white sandy beach, which is only a few minutes stroll away.

Great place in an ideal location within Seacrest beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was in an ideal location in Seacrest Beach. Lots of bikes and close to cute shops and entertainment each night. Short bike to Rosemary and Alys beaches. House was right across from pool and short walk or tram ride to the beach. Such a well stocked house and kitchen! Great kids room with Tv and bunks sleeping 6. We will definitely be back to the Sandy Craic!

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

The Sandy Craic home was fantastic for our family. So close to the pool, convenient to the beach, and all the places to eat. The kitchen has everything you need. Outdoor shower was a plus. We enjoyed it and will be back. Thanks so much for letting us make a great week of memories with our sons.

Everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

The housd was clean, nicely arranged, and spacious. My family (17 people) had plenty of room to be comfortable. Many activities close by kept us busy and happy all week. The only one awkward thing was that thr parking was all in the back. The back porch led through one of the bedrooms. This made for a few embarrassing moments.

Enjoyed our stay. Just a couple issues but, we have talked to the owner. Very nice to work with.

  • 4 of 5

We really liked the house and location to the pool and area shops/restaurants. It would be nice if there was another entrance in the back other than through the bedroom but, not a big deal. Would definitely come again. Thanks

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Unfortunately everyone uses that back entrance instead of the side one! But we are working with an architect to design a new, larger entrance and barbecue area at the side of the house, and closing off that back door altogether. We are very excited to get started! Hopefully you can come back to see the changes!! Lisa

Perfect for multiple families!

  • 5 of 5

Loved almost everything about this house! It had a great assortment of bed options for our family and extended family. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking, which we do lots of.

Only strange thing was that the queen bedroom on main level had the door to the back porch in it, where it was convenient to enter with groceries and beach stuff from the cars. That left a group with constant foot traffic through their room. That was less than ideal for them. Also, the key holder was on the back porch where parking was but the key only fit the front door. We had lots of rain (no fault of the house obviously) so running in the rain to the front to unlock was cumbersome.

Those issues aside, it was an awesome house with great location and amenities!!

Owner's Response: Hi Amanda, Thank you for your review. The house was built having parking front and back and then, unfortunately for us, they designated the front parking spaces to the condos. We opted for a key less entry due to guests loosing keys, so really the lock box is only for emergency use. The side rear door is an option also. We have plans to enlarge that entrance and install a barbecue/patio area. Thanks. Lisa
