About 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 J. Lee purchased this house in 2003

Why 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.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

We came down for the 30 A Song writers festival and had such a great time. The house is wonderful. Great location and convenient to shops and fabulous restaurants. Very cozy. A "no worry" vacation home.

Amazing time!! I would recommend the house with 5 stars.

  • 5 of 5

We arranged a last minute trip to the beach over New Years and we could not have been happier. Picture Perfect!!! The house was superb and fit our 2 families so easily--it is chic and beautiful. The bedrooms are large and spread apart so you have great privacy with kids and adults. The location is perfect and an easy walk to the beach. The hosts were so accommodating and made our stay special. We did cook some meals at the house, but the hosts also have great recommendations for restaurants. We will definitely come back because location is so important, and the house is so close to the beach and huge pool. Thank you to Louise and Joel for making our last minute trip to the beach so wonderful.

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

  • 3 of 5

The property itself is lovely and is a wonderful space to reconnect. The decor is beachy and made us feel comfortable in the space. I thought it was a pretty easy walk to the beach, (but this may not be the property for you if you want something truly beach front, or if you have little kids that can't help carry gear).

Within minutes of arriving my son had to use the restroom and the first floor toilet was broken. Joel was pretty responsive and came to repair the next morning. I guess I expect a host to maintain the property and make sure things are in working order BEFORE we arrive. Then I noticed the kitchen had dust on the counter and crumbs on the floor (we spent the first 30-40 min cleaning :( , not cool). One of the kitchen chairs had duct tape holding the slats on. On the second floor there is a great kid bunk room. The trundle had no linens(which we discovered at bedtime), and the face of it was broken and hanging off. The second floor master had broken glass bits on the floor (which we vacuumed and picked up) Thank goodness I hadn't taken off my shoes! The tub and shower were dirty to the point we went and bought cleaning wipes before using them. There are balconies off each bedroom that were great additional living space. The third floor master was comfortable but again there were some cleanliness issues. Also the tub/shower doesn't drain, so by the time you've washed your hair you standing calf deep in water.

Here comes the ugly.... Joel's listing has "Essentials" listed as one of the amenities as well as "shampoo" neither of which are provided. If you think toilet paper, paper towels or dish soap are included think again! You'de better pack them or go buy them. He left 2 trash bags and 4 dishwasher tabs in the kitchen (5 day stay for 12 people, over Thanksgiving week). When I asked for a few more he told me no, that was on the guest. It's not the silly cost of these items, but rather the time I had to take to go get them, when he falsely stated in the ammenities section they will be provided. The shampoo is a non issue other than he states he will provide and doesn't. We brought our own. A washer and dryer are listed as ammenities but there were no laundry supplies. We try very hard to be fair, we treat people and their property with respect. We sincerely wish Joel had treated our vacation/ time with the same.

If the house had been clean, and he had provided adaquate supplies it would be a 4 star 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!
