Beautiful house and great beach location!
Sea Section was everything we had hoped for and more! Three generations (8 adults, 4 children) gathered for our annual family "beach week" and the house was perfect and exceeded our expectations. The kitchen is huge, well equipped and easily accommodated multiple cooks at one time. The open, spacious design of kitchen, living and dining areas provided a comfortable gathering space for the entire group. The bedrooms were cozy, and each had its own bathroom which was a bonus! The many porches were a favorite spots for morning coffee and evening happy hour. The private pool was great for the kids and adults alike when we had enough sun and needed a cool, shady spot to swim. The beach was simply beautiful, and the neighborhood access was a short walk from the house. Ginny was wonderful to work with and very responsive our needs. I have used VBRO for many years and this was by far the best experience yet! We cannot wait to return to Sea Section and Santa Rosa Beach. Thank you Ginny for sharing your beautiful home with us!
Delighted to have you stay at Sea Section! We love our house and its location and are always happy to share it.
Great Family Vacation!
We stayed at Sea Section for our annual family vacation (10 adults, 4 kids, 1 baby). There was more than enough room for everyone and since each bedroom has its own private bathroom, everyone felt like they had great privacy. The kitchen is VERY well stocked and has plenty of room for multiple cooks. Beach access is just a few houses down. ONLY con is that there are a lot of steps down to the beach, so transporting all of our stuff for the day was quite a workout, but it's definitely doable (if it was all adults, there would be zero issues, we just had stuff/tents for the kids). We took advantage of the walking distance to Goatfeathers and Buddy's Ice Cream multiple times. Such an amazing location. Ginny was fabulous to work with! All in all, our family loved it!
We loved the house and enjoyed our stay at SeaSection in Old Florida Beach.
This house was perfect for our children and grandchildren. There is great space on the second floor for family gatherings, yet separate bedroom space on the first floor for our younger grandkids and the third floor den and bedrooms for our older grandchildren.Sea Section has a great kitchen and is equipped with everything you will need to prepare meals for a large family. We loved the great views of the beach from the second and third floor decks. Ginny, thank you for sharing your lovely home with us!!!
Thank you for your kind words and for spending your beach vacation at Sea Section. Please come again next year!
Best location on 30A!
We had a wonderful time staying at Sea Section! The home was so perfect for our family gathering with a well equipped kitchen and large living and eating areas. The beach is not crowded and the little ones LOVED netting fish and crabs in Draper Lake. The owners were very hospitable and helpful with any questions we had. Great vacation spot!
We appreciate your comments and hope to see you again next year. We really are blessed with our location on the quieter end of 30A and the added bonus of access to Draper Lake.
Numerous issues, however owner did address air conditioning and WiFi problems
ISSUES BUT MIGHT BE REAOLVED: Owner was fairly prompt regarding air conditioning and WiFi problems. Air conditioning/vents on third floor need more extensive repairs done and owner sounds like this might be be done. Same might happen with mattresses and pillows. They were old and pretty uncomfortable. If these items are fixed, this is a great rental and we liked the area better than Grayton, Seaside or Rosemary Beach and we have stayed at all of them over the 12 years we have been having our family vacations on Santa Rosa Beach. It’s a great house for layout and beach proximity.
It is always distressing for us when our guests are not completely satisfied with their vacation stay at Sea Section, and we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. We try to address any issues as quickly as we can, especially with the air conditioning, since it can be very uncomfortable if it is not working properly. As far as the wifi problem, Mediacom suddenly terminated our homeowners' association bulk contract, and we quickly switched the service to a personal residential account as soon as we were aware of the dropped service. We will be on site this weekend and will evaluate and upgrade the bedding if necessary. This is the first we have known of any problems since several reviews have mentioned how comfortable the beds are.
Amazing House and Location!!
Can't say enough great things about Sea Section! We had 3 adults, and 9 young children in our stay, and the house was perfect. The living space is incredible. We loved how open and big the living room, dining room, and kitchen were. The kitchen was very spacious, and very well stocked. With so many kids, we cooked every night, and the kitchen was perfect with 3 moms prepping in the kitchen. The covered porches were perfect to hang out on and watch the waves. All of the bedrooms had extremely comfortable beds, and their own bathrooms, which was very convenient. The proximity to the beach and access was amazing. The walkover to the beach was only 5 houses down. Even our little 2 year olds were able to walk on their own down to the beach. We loved the gated neighborhood, and all of our kids were able to ride their bikes and scooters safely around the neighborhood. The neighborhood is tucked away from the crazy 30A traffic. There is a cute ice cream shop in very short walking distance down the street we enjoyed. Highly, highly recommend! We LOVED Sea Section!
We are so happy that your vacation at Sea Section was successful. Thank you for staying with us and please come back again!
