Lovely Beach home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Sea Section and was once again very pleased with the house and location. Thankful for gated access as the area has built up around Old Florida Beach and is very crowded now with a public Beach access. Our only problem all week was too many people on the beach...not very private or serene. The home is beautiful and has everything you need. We really enjoyed the widow's walk on top of the house. We kept a bag of ice in the freezer and that kept the temp. Down even though there was a lot of opening and closing the door! We cooked several nights and the kitchen is stocked very well with quality cookware and all needed dishes for a large number of people. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with renters! My husband and son- in - law went through the house and tightened door knobs and plates. They couldn't resist treating your house like their own!

It was our third, and best year staying in Old Florida Beach! Sea section was perfect for our family. Of the three houses we have stayed in here, by far the best! Ginny was great and super accommodating to our early arrival. We can't wait until next year!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Took the whole family down, 12 family members including 4 grandchildren. House was perfect. Plenty of room to feel like you were away on your own and a great main floor with den, dining and kitchen where everyone could get together. House pool was a life safer with the kids. Short walk to the beach was easy and beach set up of chairs and umbrellas made the trip down easy.

GREAT Old Fla. Beach Home!

  • 4 of 5

Little bumpy start to our vacation with the icemaker upstairs working for a few hours, then we had to turn off because it was spewing water. Again, first day, went grocery shopping, and refrigerator in kitchen stopped working all together. Then, couple days later, found live Palmetto bugs. However, John the maintenance man and Ginny the owner, were VERY responsive and all was taken care of right away. Can't ask for anything better than that!

The porch views were out of this world! From the Master Bedroom you can see the Gulf waters AND beach! Lovely places to relax in the evening. Wish the front porch entrance bushes were cut down to where you could see out to the street, but that might just be a personal preference.

Everyone thought their beds were SOOO comfortable. I don't think I've ever been in a bed more comfortable (stayed in the Master Bedroom.) I even wrote down the brand.

The rooms are good size and amenities were all there for running a household, like dishwashing detergent and even personal items like shampoo. It was nice having the garage to put our sandy beach items in after a day at the beach and/or pool. By the way, we've been to Old Fla. Beach many times over 20 yrs. and the new pool is just perfect! We had to spend a lot of time there with the grandkids as the weather was the thing that didn't want to cooperate. The splash pool at the house was a nice place to gather too and a bonus. The coastal dune lake, Draper Lake has always been a draw to us for this beach. You can swim in the ocean, the pool, or splash around in the shallow calm lake. The walkover to the beach is only a few houses away.

We definitely would stay at Sea Section again!

Home away from

  • 5 of 5

Past location have not lived up to what was advertised. Sea Section was everything it said it was and more. Our family stayed there for a week. The family consisted of four couple three teenagers and three grand children House had plenty of room. The owner was truly concern that we had a great stay. We quickly fell in love with the house and before left we are planning our next stay. The house is simply amazing

Our family absolutely loved our time at Sea Section; the house itself is impeccably built and decorated, and the view from all of the porches and widow's walk are phenomenal. Wish we could have stayed longer!
