About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, one house back from bluff (Sleeps 8)

'OVER THE BOARDWALK' is just where you will be when you stay in this new, 'old,' luxurious, beach house. This home is located in the private, gated, Gulf-side community of Water's Edge at Seacrest Beach, adjacent to Rosemary Beach.

Just one house back from the 30-foot beach bluff, you do not have to leave the house to enjoy the warm, Gulf breezes, gorgeous views, and soothing sound of the surf. This luxury home features three spacious bedrooms; one on each level each with its own private bath complete with travertine wet areas and rain showerheads. Architectural antiques throughout this house give an 'old beach cottage' feel.

The welcoming first floor features ceramic tile throughout, keeping sand in its place. The private, ground-floor, master bedroom features a king-sized bed and full bath with travertine shower and double sinks. Slip out the French doors to the garden and pool area. Also on the first floor is the spacious, laundry room complete with full-sized washer and dryer to make beach living easy.

The second floor is the highlight of the house where the large, 35-foot great room/kitchen with wide-plank oak flooring is the perfect gathering spot for dining and relaxation. The kitchen, complete with antique, eight-foot, breakfast bar with sink, kitchen table with seating for six, JennAir gas range with convection oven, microwave, glass-front cabinetry, and granite countertops, is a dream for beach cooking.

The hand-painted entertainment center is complete with a TV and DVD player. Or, enjoy the sounds of your favorite tunes with the stereo system complete with indoor and outdoor speakers. French doors open to a spacious porch looking over the boardwalk to the beach with a teak table and chairs perfect for an al fresco, sea-side dinner.

A spacious bedroom on the second floor features a King-size bed with a quaint, architectural headboard. Other antiques complete the room. An adjoining bath with travertine shower and sink area, tile floor, and beautiful wood cabinetry is privately located off the kitchen/great room area.

Newly added kids room with Bunkbeds.

The second master suite encompasses the entire third floor featuring a king-size bed and twin sleeper sofa. The private bath has a travertine shower, claw-foot tub, and walk-in closet. Breathtaking Gulf views await you from this luxurious suite, where you can open the French doors to a private porch.

Step out the private patio gate to the pathway, and it is a 50-foot stroll down the boardwalk path to the beautiful, white-sand beach. No roads to cross. Upon your return from the beach, a hot shower awaits you just inside the gate where you can rinse the sand away. A tropical garden surrounds a private, 10-foot by 15-foot pool, where you can lounge in the sun, or stay cool in the shade of the wraparound, tiled patio. A gas barbecue grill is poolside for easy cooking.

'Over the Boardwalk' is where you will want to be! Adjacent Rosemary Beach offering a variety of restaurants, shops, and entertainment. Right across 30A are several restaurants. No need to dress and drive for dinner. Also nearby are the seaside towns of Seaside, Watercolor, Grayton Beach, and Panama City.

Sunday to Sunday rental, parking for two cars, no pets, no smoking, no student rentals. Complimentary Beach Chairs Set Up. 6 additional sand chairs for after hour beach sitting!

About Diane Marsh

We chose the lovely Water's Edge Community and built our beach home with our family in mind. It is perfect for extended families with little ones. We are happy to share info about the area to make your stay more enjoyable.

Diane Marsh purchased this house in 2002

Why Diane Marsh chose Seacrest Beach

We vacationed in the Destin area for many years and always thought the beaches on the gulf were spectacular! We appreciate the atmosphere on 30A and love that everything you might need at the beach is within a bike ride away.

What makes this house unique

The bike trails go for miles. Three adult bikes (one with baby seat) and two kid's bikes available for your use. There are many wonderful restaurants and shops close by. Beach chair set up - 2 chairs, umbrella and small table set up on the beach for you each day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted you to know that we've had a wonderful time at the beach this week. Your house is perfect and we LOVE Rosemary Beach. We took a lot of your advice and recommendations on things to do and eat. And we rented a bike trailer for the kids and had a nice time riding around going to ice cream shops, outdoor concert and fountain in Alys Beach, plays and story time by the Rep. etc. We couldn't have had a better time. Thanks for being so helpful with everything.

A wonderful week at Over the Boardwalk

  • 5 of 5

This was our 8th year to come to Rosemary Beach, having stayed 7 of those in houses in Water's Edge. This was by far my favorite for several reasons. The first being the proximity to the beach, it truly is just a few steps to the boardwalk! The second is the layout and comfortable, homey feeling of the house. It does not feel like a rental at all, but like you are staying at your friend's home. Thirdly, Diane is so easy to talk to & work with. The amenities are too many to list! Supplying the beach towels, a fully stocked kitchen, providing paper goods, laundry detergent, bath soap, kitchen soap & dishwasher soap is huge! The icing on the cake is the beach chairs/umbrella setup on the beach plus the sand chairs, beach toys and bikes provided. I can't recommend Over the Boardwalk enough for your perfect beach rental. We will be back! Thank you Diane for sharing your beach home with our family.

Awesome house in Water's Edge

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying in Water's Edge, but our first at Over the Boardwalk. This house is a stones throw from the beach and has everything you could possibly need to enjoy your beach vacation. Diane is wonderful to work with and is quick to take care of any problems that may arise. She supplies beach towels, toilet paper, dishwashing liquid, washing liquid and trash bags! I have never rented a place that was so well supplied. We absolutely loved the layout of the house and the decorations were beautiful. We will definitely be returning to this house!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Five Star Vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family has been coming to the beach for vacation since 1989. We have always traveled to destin/ft worth/sandestin area. My daughter had been hearing great things about Rosemary Beach area and wanted to try it. I found OVER THE BOARDWALK after an extensive search of what is important to our family. Diane was very helpful with my questions so I booked this house a year ahead of time.

The house is exquisitely decorated. The bed linens are glorious on all beds. There are plenty of towels and beach towels. I enjoyed having a fully equipped kitchen as I am self-proclaimed chef. (Nothing like a condo where we have stayed the last 25 years.) Diane provided dish soap, dishwasher soap, clothes washer soap, toilet paper, trash bags and much more.

My adult daughters enjoyed the privacy each bedroom provided. They could put their children to bed and still have adult time without fear of waking them. A pack n play is even provided for babies.

OVER THE BOARDWALK comes with adult and children's bikes. This saved us $$$ because we didn't have to rent bikes as most people do. The house provided a 10x10 canopy for the beach (having a 5 month old grandson--this was a must), beach toys, chairs, umbrellas, etc.

The pool is perfect. We enjoyed relaxing in the garden area with a margarita after a day at the beach.

The distance to the beach is a maybe a 3 minute walk. Out the garden gate, down a beautiful walkway is the privacy gate that opens to a beautiful beach area. The beach is clean, the attendants were so accommodating and 2 chairs, table and umbrella are including with the reservation.

We didn't need our car for restaurants. We rode bikes or walked. Restaurants were very good. Children and adults enjoyed the festivities offered about the area.

Diane was always quick to answer any questions I had. She is very responsive and provided us with a lot of information.

What I have always loved about a beach vacation is sitting on the balcony and watching the surf. I was giving that up this year at the wishes of my daughter. I was prepared to hate this area (OTB is the 2nd house back from the beach) and insist we return to Destin area.

Nope, we all LOVED it. We will return to any house in Water's Edge year after year. We will definitely return to OVER THR BOARDWALK if our entire family can't attend.

I have posted the most beautiful photos on FB. Many have asked me the house location. Diane, I hope you get future renters from my referral. Until 2017!!! 😘 🌊🍹🌴

Fantastic home in Waters Edge, right next door to Rosemary beach

  • 5 of 5

This is our 5th time visiting the area and our 1st to this home. This home will be our first choice from now on. It has a fully equip kitchen with everything you need! Beach towels, bikes, beach toys, chair service at beach. It was the cleanest house we have stayed in. Not a drop of sand in the beds or furniture. Diane was a perfect host. Gave us information about the area as well as being available to answer questions and make our stay truly pleasant. Even with a tropical storm approaching she checked in with us and offered boardgames for the kids. She truly wanted us to enjoy her house as if it was our own. Our family of 6, 4 adults & 2 kids (ages4 &8) had plenty of space and were all very comfortable. The beds were heavenly too!

Amazing Home and Location!

  • 5 of 5

We were absolutely thrilled with this home and its location! The house is is lovely and has everything you need so all you have to do is enjoy your time at the beach. Diane sent us valuable information on the area before our stay and made us feel so welcome. We just can't say enough about this home and the area. We spent every day in the private pool and at the beach (which is right there!) and walked to restaurants, coffee shops, ice cream shops etc. all the time. We spent lazy afternoons on the second floor deck enjoying the ocean breeze and playing cards with the kids. You can just park you car and enjoy your vacation without thinking about a thing! The house has everything you need...a well equipped kitchen, beach toys, beach towels etc. so you don't have to bring much with you. A wonderful family getaway...we plan to return! Loved it!

Excellent Rosemary Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to 30A and Rosemary Beach. We couldn't have expected anything better! Diane was awesome on communication and making sure the process went smoothly. The house is well located in Water's Edge which is a great community and truly in the middle of all that Rosemary Beach has to offer. The house is furnished with everything you would need to make your trip go smoothly. Honestly the only thing you have to do upon arrival is purchase your food. The beach is a short walk away with beach chairs set up right on the beach each day. Diane has beach toys, games and bikes provided. I cannot stress enough how much easier this made our trip. The pool/patio/grill was excellent and provided our family with a nice little oasis. I would highly recommend this house! We are already planning our trip for next year!
