The master bedroom is beautifully furnished and includes a master bath with an oversized tub. The living room is large for gathering and includes a bar and a 52' screen TV. The private pool is enclosed by a fence and beautiful landscaping(not heated.)
Palm trees dot the entire property, as well as native flora and fauna delicately designed to fit the property. The private subdivision also has two pools, a tennis court, and walking trails that wind their way through wooded paths.

About joann lammons
Currently living in Houston, we were looking for a quiet retreat and a gorgeous beach. We found both in Grove by the sea at 250 Andalusia. We own two other vacation homes in New Orleans.
joann lammons purchased this House in 2011
Why joann lammons chose Santa Rosa Beach
We loved the natural flora and fauna and the peaceful feel of the neighborhood. Yet, it is 1 mile's walk to bustling SeaSide's restautants, coffee shops and activities. The two pools, tennis courts and playground are bonuses. We also love having our own private pool to ourselves.
What makes this House unique
Walking to SeaSide, laying out by the pool, quick drive to multiple restaurants, close to Publix Supermarket, Quiet beach, well kept neighborhood, porches. Our living/dining/kitchen area is larger than most we found when house shopping. This is why we grabbed this one! The private pool has been our biggest feature. Many visitors compliment décor and well maintained condition of our house as well.

Wonderful Spring Break with the Family
Loved the location, away from the craziness of 30A. But a short walk or bike ride from the beach. House was spacious and comfortable.
Lovely guests! Come back again!
Stayed in the home for 4 nights with family. Wonderful home. Exceptionally clean. Porches were great. Had everything we needed for our stay. Quiet neighborhood. Would stay at this home again in a heartbeat.
Slice of heaven with plenty of room for large parties
I had to the opportunity to stay at Joann's house for a bachelorette party on 30A. We were looking for a home with beds for 6+ that didn't come at 30A prices. Joann's home was close to Seaside, had a private pool for us, and fit the luxurious, beach vibe we were looking for! On top of that, Joann was incredibly responsive and very respectful during all communication – a real pleasure to work with every step of the way.
Other than the location, the best part of the house was how cozy it was inside. With three bedrooms & baths, plus an open floor plan, this home accommodated our 6-7 guests at all times without feeling tight. Our every need had been considered and provided for: shampoo, conditioner, trash bags, dish soap, laundry detergent, towels, and even pool floaties! In addition, Joann had numbers for local vendors on the fridge so we could find whatever we needed.
For such a large house, the parking situation really was difficult for us. We ended up getting 4 cars tightly packed, back-to-back into the drive way without blocking the sidewalk, though, then parked the last car at a friend's place. I wouldn't call this a complaint, just something to be aware isn't a joke in the description. ;)
The entrance door was a little difficult to open and close, made harder by the fact that the handle is a knob but the inside of the door has shutters that stick out right next to said knob (that used a traditional key). It wasn't a deal breaker, but if we had to pick something that wasn't totally luxurious and easy, this would be it. (Honestly, it's great when your only critique is something pretty trivial.)
We stayed in the area just two nights, arriving Friday after work and checking out Sunday morning. During that time, we checked in early to decorate, went out to dinner at Whiskey Bravo (yum!), stayed up late chatting on the living room couches, slept in our rooms, made breakfast mimosas, ate lunch, hung out in our private pool, rented bikes and rode to Seaside, showered, went out to dinner, drinks, & dancing (at AJ's), came home to sleep, then woke up, picked up, and checked out. All with plenty of time to relax!
Overall, Joann's home just couldn't be beat. Everyone agreed the inside was beautiful, and it's clear Joann meant to provide for our every need. I know it can be difficult to deal with a bachelorette party, but Joann was kind, polite, and respectful. We loved visiting her home and hope she enjoyed having us!
Loved This Place
Can't say enough good things about our recent stay in "Flip Flop." Our family of 6 has stayed in a lot of VRBO rentals over the years, but this is one of our all-time favorites. This house is very roomy and beautifully decorated with a bright and happy beach theme. It's in a very nice, private neighborhood with 2 community pools. Short walk to the private beach access and right next to Seaside. It was very very clean and the beds were super comfortable. Great house!
Just like home!
Couldn't ask for better place to introduce our three girls to the gulf. The weather was spectacular, the house felt like home, and the owner was very accommodating. Definitely will consider coming back to Santa Rosa Beach after such a wonderful stay. Highly recommend this home to all.
Enjoyed having you and hope you'll come back next season!
Great House and Great Host
I have nothing but great things to say about this rental and this owner. First of all, the house is gorgeous. The pool is amazing, very private and big enough for 7 girls to enjoy. The house is spacious and comfortable and there was plenty of room for us all to sleep comfortably. The décor is fun and colorful, the kitchen is well equipped, the living area is large and cozy, the beds are comfortable, and having the three full bathrooms was great. The master bedroom/bathroom are large and luxurious. If I was forced to make a suggestion for improvement, I would say maybe some more outdoor furniture on the upstairs deck and out back, but we were more than satisfied as is. As for the owner, Joann is amazing about communication. There was a glitch with our reservation on vrbo and she was so easy to reach and work with to get everything taken care of without a hitch. I can't recommend her enough as a host. As far as nearby, there is a Publix right around the corner. The beach is gorgeous. It's a short trek from the house and a walk down a lot of stairs, but worth it. The upstairs bar at 723 Whiskey Bravo just down the street is so nice, highly recommend that place for dinner as well! It was a great trip. We all hope to come back soon! Thank you so much, Joann!!
Thanks Julia, we really appreciate your kind words and would love to have you back again! We are getting all new patio cushions in November when we are able to enjoy our house ourselves!

Additional information about rental rates
Summer stays are non refundable under all circumstances. This is from Memorial day through Labor day. I can work with guests on a case by case scenario to offer a stay during off season 30 days out and no holiday weekends. I suggest trip insurance during hurricane season. Its very affordable.
