*Saturday to Saturday rental during Peak Times*

East County Hwy 30A, Santa Rosa Beach, FL 32459 (Seagrove Beach)

A Winter's Past is the perfect beach house, just steps to the sugary white sand beach and emerald green Gulf of Mexico. This 5 bedroom, 5 bath Gulf front home has phenomenal Gulf views, a private pool (can be heated upon request), enclosed patio area surrounded by the Seagrove dunes, beach boardwalk and an outdoor shower. Although most of your time will be spent enjoying the amazing outdoor space, the interior of the home is a treat in itself. The home sleeps 15 comfortably and has a unique layout making it the perfect multi-family beach home. Whether taking a stroll along the most beautiful beach on the Panhandle, splashing in the private pool or relaxing with your family and friends, A Winter's Past is sure to host wonderful memories for your family.

You have arrived at the beach...head upstairs to the first level of the home where you will find the living area, kitchen, dining room and covered balcony. Also on this level are four of the five bedrooms. The entry hallway leads to three King Master bedrooms and a fourth bedroom with two Twin beds, each with their own private bath. The end of the hallway opens to the spacious main living area and breathtaking panoramic view of the Gulf of Mexico. The living area has plenty of seating to enjoy watching TV or playing a board game with the family. The beautiful kitchen is fully stocked for all of your needs, easily accommodating the entire family. The dining area is just off of the kitchen, with seating for 10 and 4 extra seats at the breakfast bar. Just off of the living area is a covered balcony with comfy outdoor furniture for enjoying the view, the breeze, the sound of the waves or a view of the kiddos splashing in the pool.

Stairs off of the main living area lead up to the camp style bedroom, every kid's dream for a beach vacation! This room is perfect for the little ones. We must warn you giggling late into the evenings has been reported. This bedroom has one queen bed & five twin beds (1 set of twins are bunk beds). There is also a private bathroom in this bedroom.

Underneath the home, which is elevated on stilts, there is some covered parking available and additional uncovered parking in the driveway area. On the Gulf side of the home, the fenced in patio surrounding the pool backs up to the beautiful, lush greenery which covers the dunes. The boardwalk to the beach is accessible from the ground level of the home as well as the second floor balcony. The outdoor shower and grill are also located on the ground level. And, just a short stroll to the end of the driveway takes you to the beautiful scenic Highway 30A with a handful of restaurants and shops within walking and biking distance, some are just across the street.

A Winter's Past is located in Seagrove Beach, which is a mile-and-a-half stretch that encircles a small cove and lures visitors with its beauty and serenity. Named for the thick grove of windswept trees that surround it, Seagrove still maintains the same green canopy of oaks, magnolias, hickories and sand pines that came to define it a half a century ago. Today, Seagrove has an eclectic mix of old beach homesteads and newer cottages, as well as a well-balanced menu of off-beach activities that range from exploring Point Washington State Forest to browsing the beach shops and restaurants along scenic Highway 30A.

30A Cottages will arrange all your plans and concierge needs prior to and during your stay! Services include, but are not limited to: bike and beach chair rentals, airport and general transportation, grocery shopping, beach bonfires, fishing charters (Gulf and Bay), kayak rentals, baby sitters, restaurant recommendations, and spa services. The possibilities are endless when vacationing with 30A Cottages and Concierge! Call us for anything you wish!

***For the comfort and enjoyment of all guests, Smoking and Pets are NOT allowed. The pool can be heated upon request for an addt'l fee.

Beautiful home in an excellent location.

  • 4 of 5

Amazing views and beautifully decorated home in a excellent location. Only complaint we had was the shared steps to the beach were very worn and nails were sticking out, a few of us got lots of splinters. Other than that the management company was very helpful with everything and fixed problems in a timely manner. We really enjoyed our stay.

A real gem right on the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

I have been coming to 30A for over 20 years now. This trip was special in that we gathered the whole family from NY to CA and celebrated with 3 generations. WinterPast was the perfect house! From the moment we arrived, it felt like home. The decor is lovely, and most importantly comfortable! The living room suited our needs to a tee. Each evening, there was plenty of room for all of us to gather and visit or play games. The chairs and large leather sofa are so comfy! The kitchen was well stocked and we put it to the test cooking in 3 of our evenings with 15 people. The large table was such a nice setting for great food and fellowship! Having an ice maker was very helpful also. The layout of the house is ideal. The room upstairs was so great for housing 7 young adults. Everyone slept great. Having 6 bikes was also a treat. From morning rides to biking to Seaside for lunch or dinner, they were put to good use.

I am saving the best for last...BEACH FRONT!! There really isn't any better way to go. So convenient and gorgeous views every time you glanced out of a window. We did not have little children with us, but I can see where it would be the ideal set up for that. We did however, have three grandparents over 85 and they loved the porch overlooking the pool and ocean. Made them feel like they could come and go when needed, yet really be a part of it all without being stuck in the hot sun all day. We will definitely stay here again if possible. So very thankful for the memories made with our family!

Girls Beach trip

  • 5 of 5

We just recently stayed here for our annual girls getaway. The place was excellent for us. We had 12 and we come from all over and meet down there once a year. So it was great place for us to be all together and just be us and have our own private pool. We have been doing this for 30 years and this has been the most successful place we have stayed. We hope to be back again same time next year! Thank you for your home.
