Why Mary McDonald chose Seacrest Beach

We fell in love with Seacrest because it offers a relaxed family atmosphere in close proximity to Rosemary, Seaside, and Destin. The beaches of 30A are unparallel & an easy trip from many of the South’s major cities. The airports in the area offer an additional mode of travel making it a destination that is easy to reach from anywhere! The pedestrian friendly neighborhood of Seacrest has a wonderful pool and shuttle service to the beach across the street. If you want a break from the white sand and emerald waters, there is plenty to do down the road in Panama City or in Destin. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!

This house was wonderful! The decor was beautiful but also comfortable. It was very spacious as we had plenty of room for our family. The beds allowed for a restful night's sleep. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch, enjoying the breeze as well as riding bikes throughout the community. The close proximity of restaurants, live music, pool, and trolley to the beach contributed to a great vacation!

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for the feed back on the reason for giving 4 stars. I understand that our door keypad system is not childproof and that this was your concern. I have found this system more convenient than a key system for many families but I know it doesn't fit everyone. I appreciate your business and recommendations. Hope to see you back next year!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 from Atlanta and enjoyed our stay at The Summer Palace. There was more than enough room for us and the house had all the essentials. We didn't use the first floor bedroom and bathroom. Our boys loved the bunk room. The master bed was super comfy. The beach toys and bikes are definitely a bonus (especially if you are flying in from somewhere and can't bring that sort of stuff). The owner was easy to deal with and quite responsive. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your lovely home.

Summer Palace Delivers Again!

  • 5 of 5

Our families returned to Summer Palace for a second summer and had another spectacular stay! The home was clean and comfortable for 4 adults and 4 kids 10 and under, and we simply love the privacy of backing up to the nature trail and wooded area.
