About Joel and Louise

Louise and I are both from Massachusetts, but have lived in Atlanta for over 25 years, where we have raised our 3 wonderful daughters. Upon moving to Atlanta, we continuously heard about the wonderful beaches along 30-A and vacationed with family and friends in the area for over 10 years before we finally purchased.

One spring break, we came to Seacrest Beach and walked into our house, where we immediately fell in love. We are very picky and wanted the perfect house for a relaxing vacation. The house is bright and airy, sits on a cobble stone street facing the gulf and is only a 3-5 minute walk to the gorgeous sandy beaches and crystal clear gulf waters. The Seacrest pool, which is across the street is literally to die for. When our kids were little, they would constantly go back and forth from the gulf to the pool. We love the 30A area and its quaint beach areas and all it has to offer. It is truly Picture Perfect.

Louise and Joel purchased this house in 2003

Why Joel and Louise chose Seacrest

The house is truly Picture Perfect and the areas is safe and idyllic, with a true beachy/colorful theme. The kids are safe to ride their bikes, walk to shops, play on the beach or at the pool. We love being able to walk to the restaurants and shops in Rosemary Beach or Alys Beach, where there is plenty to do and live music most nights. Our 'must visit' restaurants are George's at Alys Beach, La Cocina , Pizza by the Sea, Shades, Donut Hole and La Crema in Rosemary for the best chocolate fondue. Our family loves the Sugar Shack and walking to get ice cream is a nightly ritual. Seacrest is the Picture Perfect vacation destination for the whole family.

What makes this house unique

When we walked into our spacious house, we fell in love. Being on a corner lot, the house was bright and you clearly felt so relaxed and calm. We love the location of the home at the front of the neighborhood…close to everything!

The house is large enough to give families the space they need but the home also offers great areas to gather as a group. Picture Perfect is completely stocked so you will want for very little. Each room has either a covered porch or deck, and it is so wonderful to sit out on a evening, relaxing and truly enjoying beach living.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a nice place to stay for Spring break. Our teenagers had a great time at the beach hanging with their friends while the parents relaxed at the pool. The house was large and able to accomodate the 12 of us very easily. The house was well stocked making it very relaxing. Easy walk to the beach and Rosemary Village. We are definitely coming back.

We traveled as a family of 13 and I must say that this home was more than enough room for us. It was equipped with everything that we needed and even good wifi. We really enjoyed our stay !

The house was such a great place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was fully furnished and in a prime spot to both the beach and pool. Seacrest Beach is a great resort community. You can walk to many restaurants, shops, biking, and nightly entertainment. The host was great and extremely responsive, making our stay so enjoyable. We will be back!

Great location, host was great! Beautiful views, and beach was gorgeous.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay here and upon our arrival we were greeted by a perfect beach scene. The house was a perfect match for our family, the beach is close and we made use of the local transport that was provided with our accommodations. We definitely enjoyed the trip. Joel was hospitable and quick to respond to any comments and concerns that we had.

We would recommend this spot to other guests.

Overall great house - one small issue needed to address...

  • 3 of 5

Overall we had a great stay at Picture Perfect. The house is in great condition, very clean. Check in was smooth and very easy. We had everything we needed for our stay. Nothing bad to say about the house, location, area, etc.

My only complaint was an issue that came up about 20 days before we supposed to arrive. The owner of the property emailed my personal email and said that we owed an additional $200 cleaning fee and additional $ for the taxes. We had paid in full at the time of booking. The owner claimed that VBRO had made some "changes" that he hadn't caught until the time of his email. I felt like this was unprofessional, claiming that we owed more money, due to his mistake. Supposedly the cleaning fee and taxes were left off of the invoice we paid (in full) through VBRO. Everything that I looked at through the VBRO website still said we were paid in full.

The owner was cordial about the issue, and we ended up settling on us owing an additional $100 instead of the $200 plus taxes. BUT, I still feel like since it was his mistake, we shouldn't have had to pay any additional. But for fear of losing our reservation or having it cancelled just 20 days before we were to arrive, I agreed to leave the $100 cash on the counter when we checked out.

Other than the payment issue (which I would assume is fixed by now), I would recommend staying at Picture Perfect.
