About the Property

House + Carriage House 3-5 Bedrooms, 3-5 Baths, Sleeps 6-20

Our beach front home is the ideal getaway for anyone who wants the convenience of a beach front property combined with the privacy of a family cottage. Whether you are a couple celebrating your anniversary or a large wedding party, our home has everything you might need.

The most exciting feature of the home, of course, is it's location right on the beach. It doesn’t get any better than stepping outside your door and walking down the private boardwalk to your very own, white sand beach. Forget the hassle of lugging equipment along a sandy path, across a street, and down a public beach access. The beach is right out your back door.

In addition to the beachfront location, our home is unique because it is flexible to fit your needs. Whether you are a single family on vacation, a pair of couples looking for a weekend getaway, or an entire family reunion looking for a space to hold 20, we can accommodate you. We can do this, because the house is divided into two buildings, the Main House and the Carriage House. If you have a small group, you can rent the main house only. If your party is large, you can rent the carriage house as well, which provides enough extra sleeping and living space for the entire family. Don't let the size fool you; this house can be as intimate or as expansive as your needs demand. Just ask, and we're happy to figure something out.


The main house has three bedrooms, three baths, a kitchen, living and dining space, two Gulf view porches, and a private walkway to the beach. The carriage house comes equipped with two additional bedrooms, two bathrooms, two porches and a bonus living/game room for the kids.

The first floor of the main house has two bedrooms, each with a queen bed and adjoining bathrooms. The living, dining, and kitchen areas are on the main floor and open up to a huge deck overlooking the Gulf. There is an entertainment center and surround sound stereo that plays throughout the house and onto the back deck, so you can watch the sunset to your preferred soundtrack. Sunsets from our home are simply breathtaking; you really have to see them to believe them.

Upstairs in the Main House you will find the large master king bedroom with full bath and a private sun room attached, all with spectacular views of the beach and Gulf. This master bedroom suite is an oasis of comfort and privacy, complete with a wet bar, mini fridge, and coffee maker, so if you like, you'll never have to go downstairs.

The carriage house is a great addition to the home, equipped with 2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and its own washer and dryer. Like the main house it has a large balcony with seating to enjoy more amazing views of the gulf. It has 6 built in bunks and queen bedroom, each with private bathrooms attached. There is also a large bonus room that functions as a game space and living area in which the family can relax, watch TV, or play a game of Ping Pong.

Our home offers the extra space a large group might need, while maintaining an intimate cottage feel. Whether you are a single couple or the entire family, we've got a package that will work for you. Come check us out. Bring the family, or not. Either way, come prepared for a wonderful time on the beachfront, with beautiful views, unbelievable convenience, and breathtaking sunsets. We hope to have you stay in our home.

**Note**
All rates are based on rental of Main House and Carriage House together. Please inquire about renting the Main House separately. We can work something out that fits your budget.
Also know that when you rent the main house only, the carriage house remains empty (we never rent to two families at once) and you take home some savings in the cleaning and rental fees. We want to tailor our house to your space and budget needs, so please, don't hesitate to inquire. We're always happy to make accommodations.

Private beach off the back porch

Our house is located in a beautiful, private section of scenic Highway 30-A. The house is its own private compound directly on the beach, an independent, private oasis. Situated between Rosemary Beach and Seaside, our home has access to the finest amenities 30-A has to offer, while maintaining an unmatched level of privacy and ease of beach access. We're sure you'll love the location - in the middle of everything, but with the ability to get away from it all.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1995

About: My name is Risher, and this is my family's beach house. We built the house in 1995 and have been coming down for family vacations ever since. My folks even lived in the house from 2002-2009. Since then, we've opened the doors to renters and have enjoyed every minute of it. We love having folks come down and enjoy our house with the same enthusiasm we did when we first built it. Now my folks live a few miles away in Florida, and I manage the property along with a great team of support staff. We're always here to handle any questions you may have, so please don't hesitate to ask. We want you and your family to feel like you're at your own vacation home, and we'll do everything we can to make that happen.

Why Seacrest, FL, USA:
Our family has been coming to 30A for vacations since the 1970's, and we couldn't see buying a house anywhere else. We love the beaches here, and we still try to get down for a visit as often as possible. It's truly a magical place.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
As an added bonus, in the summer months, you will enjoy complimentary beach service provided by Dillon. Every day, Dillon's Beach Service will set up two chairs, an umbrella, and a table for your convenience. No need to drag your stuff up and down the stairs, even. We've got it covered.
