Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Stay someplace fun. The Fish house comfortably accommodates family and friends in a great location with unique architectural character and many amenities.....this place is a great escape. The open living/kitchen/dining space upstairs is like being in a tree house with a twist. Downstairs are two identical bedrooms with queen beds, closets, built in storage drawers, and wall mounted TV/DVD. In between the two queen bedrooms is a four twin bed bunk room for the kids or whomever…with private reading lights and a sliding barn type door. Two full baths with stone floors as well as a laundry room are also conveniently located on the lower level.

Upstairs is an open living room, dining area and full kitchen, along with another bathroom, ascend the ships ladder up from the second floor deck to the 3rd level sun deck with covered trellis. Hang out in the hammock or lay back in the lounge chairs up in the trees with a peek to the ocean. Wireless internet access is included throughout, with wired access points in strategic locations for added convenience.

The house is a short stroll…450 steps, to the best piece of beach there is. Eastern Lake flows into the gulf and makes a safe haven for floating in the shallow current or chasing fish with your net. It is also a great place to skim board, kayak(included), paddle board (included) or hit the surf. A community pool is available for guest use in season.

If you don’t feel like cooking in the full size, fully equipped kitchen or barbequeing on the charcoal grill, there are plenty of nearby restaurants and conveniences from Grayton to Seaside to Watercolor…you will be at the center of all the best.

This is a great value. Save your money for shopping, eating out, having fun….or stay two weeks….you deserve it.

About Tim Fish

We live and work in Atlanta.

I am an Architect, I designed the house.

We enjoy sharing it with friends and others who appreciate similar things...

Comfort, simplicity, beauty and time to relax sometimes.

Tim Fish purchased this house in 2006

Why Tim Fish chose Beaches of South Walton

We had been vacationing for years here with our family.

The Eastern Lake Beach is the coolest place we found.

We also liked the natural setting of the lot we selected.

We nestled the house in and kept the trees and vegetation up close. We tried to make it fun, relaxing and unique.

What makes this house unique

You may want to bike or run east to Deer Lake, or take advantage of the dune walks at Water sound.

Seaside is west about two miles. There are some great trails on the north side of 30A where you can see some beautiful old cypress trees. Use the kayak to do some exploring as well. Get off the beaten path, and just take it easy.

Clean, comfortable, convenient

  • 5 of 5

Loved the Fish House. It is perfect for one or two small families. Love the layout and its well designed. We enjoy coming to this area, close to Eastern Lake and the gulf. It's great the owner provides a kayak, bikes and a paddle board-that's a huge savings right there. I read the reviews from the previous guests so we knew what to expect. I'd definitely book again.

Very Nice Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

The house was great for our needs. Very clean and modern. Ideal for adults and teens, but maybe not for toddlers, due to all of the stairs. The house is close enough to the beach that we could walk with no trouble. The section of the beach was nice and not very crowded, which is what we wanted. Loved seeing all the herons that were helping the men fish on the beach.

We also took advantage of the nearby neighborhood pool.

We could never manage to connect to the internet or figure out how to get the bedroom televisions to come on, but we weren't really there to watch tv or surf the net. We had a very relaxing mini mid-week vacation.

Mr. Fish was quick to reply to texts and very easy with whom to communicate. We enjoyed the house and our stay immensely.

Had a great time for a short trip!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Fish House! We were only there for a few days, but LOVED the beach close by. It had both a lake and beach and was not crowded at all! We easily rented chairs and an umbrella from one of the local companies for both of our beach days. It was a little bit of a hike to get there with a 5 year old and 1.5 year old in tow, so I would recommend bringing a wagon to hold the kids and all the beach stuff. I would also recommend driving with the kayak and paddle board. My husband was able to walk out to the lake with our 5 year old, board, and paddle, but it was a workout and he only did it once! We loved that the house had the paddle board, adult bikes, and kayak for guests to use. The area is really nice and easy to get to lots of restaurants and retail areas close by (driving, not walking). The Fish House was clean and well-maintained and the owner provided great customer service! I would recommend bringing everything you may need to cook and clean including salt, pepper, paper towels, washing detergent, dish soap, sponges, etc because nothing like that is stocked. We went to the grocery store on the way in and did not realize that until we got there. Also, the top floor gets VERY warm. There are no fans on the top floor and it seemed like the cool air from the AC did not quite make it's way up there, no matter how low the AC was. The bottom floor got cool, though, and that's were the bedrooms are. Overall, we enjoyed our short stay and would go back to that beach in a heartbeat!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the comment on the AC. The upper level can get out of balance when the vents downstairs get adjusted too far open. The trick is to close down the vents downstairs and fully open the upstairs vents so the air is better distributed to the upper level...I will update the arrival info or post a note at the house to better address that. Thanks for staying, and sharing your comments.

Beautiful well cared for up to date house.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house situated in a pine grove near the ocean, so you have the feeling of the tropics and the beach. Really gorgeous, and everything was so convenient from the way that there were 2 bathrooms separate downstairs for the bedrooms and a powder room upstairs. Lovely decks and well designed. It was perfect for our family.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at Fish House. The location was perfect for us! It was just a short bike ride, or walk to the beach. The house was very clean and welcoming. There are lots of nearby places to eat and shop. I would definitely recommend staying here! We will be back!

We LOVE the Fish House!! Will definitely return!

  • 5 of 5

WE LOVE THE FISH HOUSE!!! :-D It exceeded our expectations on every level! From the moment we walked in the door, were blown away by this house! It was clean, bigger than we expected, and well-stocked with kitchen items, bikes, and games. The house is unique, as I'm sure you can see in the photos, and it's just a fun place to stay... it isn't like your ordinary high-rise condo rental that looks exactly the same as 100 other units. We loved that the house was tucked back in the trees which provided soft shade while we were hanging out in the living space inside. And the rooftop was amazing and so unique! I could've spent our entire trip up there! The house comfortably fit 6 adults and 2 young children, though I think we could have had more people come and we still would've had plenty of space (just as long as they don't mind sleeping on bunk beds, which we didn't! It was fun!) We loved that the house was a short 5 minute walk to the beach and an even shorter 2 minute walk to the pool!

The location (right by Eastern Lake at Seagrove Beach) is our favorite location to stay when we go to the beach! It's close to the beach, the lake, it's a quiet community, and it allows for a fun 20 minute bike ride to Seaside for eating and shopping. The house is also located near closer restaurants, bike rentals shops, and our favorite, The Donut Hut, if we ever feel like staying closeby. It's just a great location all around! We love it!

Booking, checking in, and checking out was a breeze. Tim was prompt and graciously answered any questions I had before we arrived. It made our vacation all the more enjoyable!

We were all honestly surprised at how affordable it was considering how wonderful the house was! I highly recommend the Fish House! As you can tell, I am beyond thrilled that we found this gem of a beach house for our family vacation. We will DEFINITELY be staying at Fish House again in the future! :-D
