DO NOT RENT HERE IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A CROWDED, PARTY BEACH!!!!
TIRED OF CONDO CROWDS, ELEVATOR WAITS, SHUTTLE BUSES OR LONG WALKS TO A CROWDED PUBLIC ACCESS? Are you done with crowded beaches covered with rental chairs and beach blankets, forcing you to struggle to find a path to the beach?
We suggest you try staying with us - located in the middle of a mile-wide PRIVATE BEACH with no public access. We are nestled in a gated neighborhood, among multi-million dollar homes. No noisy crowds, no college spring break craziness, no stepping past dozens of beach towels to get to the water - nothing but beach relaxation. If you are looking for a loud, crazy, partyfest – don’t come here, as you’ll be disappointed. But if privacy, solitude, sunsets and nature are more your goal – you have found the place!! Our PRIVATE BEACH (no crowds – even mid-summer) alone is worth any difference in price. Come see for yourself!! We own Beach Bum Bungalow and operate as 7 Mile Properties. Contact us and we'll answer all your questions!!

“Beach Bum Bungalow'' is our island themed beach home located on a PRIVATE BEACH - “Beach Bum Bungalow'' is perfect for those with a sense of humor – those who do not take life too seriously – those looking for a romantic, fun vacation, and for those who really want to get away and have fun.
Get ready to take off your shoes and relax!! Enjoy crystal-clear waters, sugar-sand beaches that actually squeak when you walk on them (they really do!) and sunsets that will take your breath away!
BEACH BUM BUNGALOW: Secluded, yet close to it all, “Beach Bum Bungalow” is our 2 bedroom, 3 bath townhome, located in 7 Palms Townhomes (a small 7-plex), perfect for those seeking relaxation on the finest PRIVATE BEACH in the US right outside your door. Relax on one of our 3 decks - one offers a shady respite from the sun, one is perfect for family dinners looking out over the grill area and palm trees, and one that is a perfect place to enjoy morning coffee or evenings drinks.
We have private, reserved, covered parking - so no sun-roasted, crispy-hot cars when you decide to go for a drive (Nice!). Enjoy the convenience of reserved parking (for 2 cars) three feet from the front door - this certainly makes loading and unloading the car a breeze!
Beach Bum Bungalow is in Seacrest Beach (on the eastern side of Seagrove Beach and western edge of Alys Beach, between the beach and Camp Creek Lake). We are part of 7 Palms Townhomes, located south of scenic Highway 30A - halfway between Rosemary and Seaside Beach, on a secluded stretch of the Emerald Coast with its own private (yes, PRIVATE) beach. So NO CROWDS on the beach (yes you heard that right, no crowds). Enjoy the solitude of sunset views that often have few, if any, other people on the beach. We have one of the longest private beaches on the panhandle (about a mile) and we are the lowest price rental on a private beach in the region. If you can find a better rental on a private beach – RENT IT!!
OUR LOCATION: For those unfamiliar with this part of the Florida Panhandle, the beaches of “30A” are known as the Emerald Coast because of their unique clear-to-turquoise waters and sugar-white sand. The area is also known for its natural beauty, the absence of high-rise condos, and a relaxed, “old-Florida” atmosphere. No over-commercialization here. Beach Bum Bungalow takes that even further, with its private beach and its wacky and whimsical, Florida Keys and Caribbean feel. From the colorful and funky art to the amazingly well-appointed kitchen, we have decorated Beach Bum Bungalow with a wink and a smile, designed for both fun and convenience.
Seacrest Beach is fantastic -- close to all the restaurants, shopping, and activities of the beach. Yet Beach Bum Bungalow is located in a private, gated neighborhood, away from traffic and crowd noise – no chaos here. Only the sound of the surf every night. So it's perfect for relaxation, beach time, watching sunsets, coffee on the deck(s) in the morning, surf fishing and relaxation. Enjoy sunning, fishing, swimming, bike riding, Paddleboarding in Camp Creek Lake (less than 100 yards away) or just taking it easy with a cool, refreshing beverage. You name it -- it's here to do … or not -- it's up to you.
Beach Bum Bungalow is just east of Deer Park, so you'll have an additional two miles of empty and undeveloped beaches just west, on the other side of Watersound (which has its own private, but much busier, beach). Our beach is perfect for morning nature walks and wonderful quiet time. Between our private beach, the Watersound private beach and Deer Park’s undeveloped beaches, there are 3 miles of the most quiet and gorgeous beaches in Florida right outside your door. If you’re looking for noisy beach parties and crowds on the beach, DO NOT rent here, as that does not exist on Beach Bum Bungalow’s beach.
OUR AMENITIES: Note that Beach Bum Bungalow has three (yes, 3) decks – a shaded lower deck (16' x 19') with an outdoor shower, a huge (16’ x 17’) main deck outside the Living Room and one (16’ x 6’) outside the Master Bedroom. Beach Bum Bungalow's location allows you to enjoy gorgeous sunsets from BOTH the gulf from our private beach AND from the dock on Camp Creek Lake, which looks out over the lake and dune preservation area. And you won't believe the stars at night! Wow!
On the main floor, we have our Living Room, Dining Room, Kitchen, Guest Bath and main deck. Go up one floor to find our Guest Bedroom (can be either 2 twins - OR - a King bed - you tell us your preference when booking the unit), Full Guest Bath, Laundry facilities, Master Bedroom (King bed), Master Bath and another deck off the Master Bedroom.
Ours is a fully appointed, full-size kitchen. The kitchen has all the conveniences of home, maybe more! There's a blender for those tropical drinks that are perfect for a beach vacation. Amenities include DVDs, flat screen TVs in every room and CD stereos with a selection of videos, tunes, puzzles, books and fun games and more.
"Beach Bum Bungalow" has all you need for a summer vacation. The motif is a bright and happy, with lots of color -- just right for the beach! Decorated to be both funky and fun, you’ll love the feel of the beach as soon as you enter! Our custom art comes from local artisans and artist friends from the Florida Keys and Caribbean. We know it’s unusual – we know it’s a bit silly - but hey, you’re on vacation, so why not? You don’t have to be a kid to have fun, right? And when wearing flip-flops is “dressing up,” why stay at a fancy, stuffy rental home or boring old condo or hotel, right?
We have an outdoor shower to keep the sand outside. It's great for rinsing off after a fun day at the beach. We also have 2 outdoor grills, and 3 grill tables and benches for your convenience. Cook your catch right out back!! Enjoy our ground level deck w/tropical surroundings while grilling or playing outdoors, or simply taking a break from the sun and read a book. It’s up to you.
Walk out the door and you're ready for action. Beach activities include basking in the warm sun while enjoying the gulf views of dolphin swimming by and the sound of the waves (and perhaps a cool refreshing drink). Or snorkel in crystal-clear water, or go for a swim, or raft in the waves - or fish right from the beach. You decide. Pompano, redfish, Spanish mackerel, bluefish, and more can be caught right in the surf. Go Biking along 30A’s famous bike trails to Seaside, Rosemary or Alys Beach! Rental bikes (with helmets, locks and baskets) can be delivered to your door. Golf, shopping, and restaurants are just minutes away. Or wander along the beach and enjoy the view. We even supply beach chairs, a beach umbrella, beach towels and an ice chest! Just bring plenty of sunscreen!
