Finding a week to rent the Seagrove Retreat House during the summer months is a rarity. That's because seven renters rebook for next year before they depart. It has been that way for several years now. This speaks a lot about the house and how you are welcomed. You are treated with the comforts of home while relaxing and enjoying the beach.
Once you get there all you need to do is to load up the wagon (provided for your convenience) for the short walk to the beach, sip a cool drink around (or in) the pool in the back yard (no glass please), play ping-pong on the screened front porch, play basketball or horse shoes in the back yard, or just relax in the den watching the 50" tv while planning your cook out on the charcoal and/or butane grill.
From the front door you stroll 300' to the white sandy beach and the beautiful emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Our beach access is handicap accessible so can accommodate strollers, wagons and wheel chairs. During the spring break and summer months Walton County provides a life guard station with two life guards. For your enjoyment we provide a wagon, a few beach chairs, an umbrella or two plus beach toys for the younger children.
The 20x30 private pool is only a few steps out the back door. It is surrounded by a sun deck with ample lounge chairs and tables. If you are not one to sit in the sun you can sit in one of the rockers on the covered back porch.
Have your morning coffee on the screened front porch and watch the many walkers and bikers exercising on our portion of the 30 mile "bike path" built by Walton County. There are three restaurant style booths (seats 12) for eating meals, four teak rocking chairs plus the ping pong table. And it is NOT crowded.
The first floor features a den with a 50" tv plus a master bedroom w/king bed and private bathroom (tub/shower combo). Also on the first floor is a queen bedroom, a living room w/pull out sofa, a den w/pull out sofa, a full bath (shower), large dining room and a large fully equipped kitchen. The kitchen has a counter/bar which hosts 6 stools and the dining table has seating for 10. If you are into playing restaurant in the kitchen there is a double Dutch door leading to the huge L-shaped screened porch.
The second floor consists of another king size suite w/full bath (tub/shower combo), a queen bedroom, and a twin bedroom with sliding doors to the outside porch. There is a full bath (shower stall) in the hall. The bunk room has two wooden bunk beds featuring a queen bed bottom and twin bed top. At the top of the stairs is a bonus room with a day bed and a foosball table. The upstairs porch overlooks 30A with a view to the Gulf and is accessible from the bonus room or the twin bed room.
Most rooms contain a TV, DVR and ceiling fans. The house is on 3 lots so it is private and affords a large area for parking up to 8 cars or several cars plus RV and/or boat. There is a concrete play area with a full sized basketball goal as well as a tree-shaded area with hammock and picnic table.
The detached guest house sleeps four and includes a queen sized bedroom and a living room w/kitchen area. It is ideal for a quiet 'retreat' from the main house as it is located only 30 feet from the back porch. The guest house includes a full bath, refrigerator, stove plus a washer/dryer. The living room has a new sofa sleeper.

Charter boat deep sea fishing.
Year Purchased: 1985
About the owner: The 'beach' is a special place for our family. We have enjoyed going there for many years, long enough to see children and now grandchildren taking their first footsteps in the sand and chasing the waves as they come and go.
Why the Owner Chose Seagrove Beach, FL, USA:
Originally living in the north, we were transferred to the south and would travel the four hours to the Gulf for our family vacations. We first purchased a small condo but quickly out grew it. We had the opportunity thirty years ago to purchase this house. Thru the years I have enjoyed remodeling and am always redecorating and updating the Seagrove Retreat House. This past year all bathrooms were remodeled and new carpeting was installed.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
CASUAL, COMFORTABLE, BEACH HOUSE - unique and perfect for our family of twenty-two. We can all gather around for a true family vacation. There is a bed for everyone and table space for family meals and game-playing. Our family activities include biking, jogging, kayaking, sand boarding and watching the sun set on the Gulf. Special outings include a trip to the water park, crabbing, deep sea fishing and a stroll to Seaside for shopping, dinner and a concert on the green. The guys might even get in a round of golf.
