About The Owner

We are the Peacock family and we fell in love with the Highway 30-A area 20 years ago.

The Owner purchased this house in 2001

Why The Owner chose Santa Rosa Beach

There is no other neighborhood quite like Old Florida Beach. We purchased our home knowing that this was the perfect vacation location to raise our 8 year old son.

What makes this house unique

Old Florida Beach is one of the best neighborhoods for families with young children. The summer months always have plenty of children riding bikes and scooters well into the evening!

We loved our stay at the Osprey Reef! Everything we could ask for in a vacation house. We love the quiet neighborhood, we have stayed in the neighborhood before, it's great for kids and bike riding, close to the beach and private. Large kitchen with everything you need! Donna was wonderful to work with and we will definitely comeback! Thank you for sharing your vacation home with us!

This was a perfect vacation house for our family...great location with a short walk to the beach and even shorter walk to community pool. The house had a great outdoor shower for hosing off after the beach. Had everything we needed. The owner was very responsive and helpful with our inquiries. The beach was perfect with white sand and clear water! Thanks for a great vacation!

Wonderful Family Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

This is our family's favorite place to vacation!!! The white sand beaches & crystal clear water are just beautiful! We love how private the beach and neighborhood are. We enjoy spending all day at the beach and pool and then riding bikes to dinner & ice cream. The house was perfect for our family! The short walk to the beach & pool is perfect with kids. Loved the big front porches and open family room/ dining room & kitchen. Will definitely stay here again!

Old Florida Beach is only 6 miles from the quaint town of Seaside, 12 minutes from Sandestin and a short stroll from Gulf Place. Draper Lake is adjacent to the neighborhood so bring the canoe or kayak for a great day on the lake! The bike trail that runs along 30-A starts just outside the gate.
