About the Property

Sleeps 13 - Beach View from Living Area and Master Bedroom - 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths

STEP BACK IN TIME COTTAGE provides the perfect location for spending time together with family or friends. We have a maximum occupancy of 13. Because you will be staying in a private beachfront neighborhood zoned for single family homes we do not rent our home as a wedding, party or 'event' destination. Neither do we rent to groups of young adults under the age of 25 years.

Our home offers private beach viewing and beach access directly from our front patio, yet you will be within a 5 to 10 minute easy walk to the popular Seaside beach community. Seaside is home to many quaint and unique shops for men, ladies and children; excellent restaurants; quick places to pick up fast meals, ice cream, or cupcakes (their food "trucks" are shiny airstream trailers); and regular community concerts and plays(offered in an open-air grassy arena). Be sure to check on times and dates of weekly farmer's markets also held at Seaside. You will save time by walking or biking in order to avoid the traffic and parking challenges at Seaside.

First time visitors to Walton County will especially appreciate the bike paths and walking trails that stretch many, many miles from Rosemary Beach through Seagrove Beach and on past Seaside, Watercolor and Grayton Beach.

STEP BACK IN TIME is a spacious, comfortable, well-kept older home. Our home is one level, perfect for toddlers to grandparents. As soon as you enter our home, the ocean beckons you to “come and see”. Then as you explore the house and view the fantastic local shell collection you will begin making your own special memories of glorious, lazy days at the beach. You will find nothing but the soft white sands and the emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico outside your front door. Private steps down to the beach make it fun to come and go from the beach as often as you wish. A hose spigot halfway up the steps, and private showers with hot water outside each bathroom keep most sand where it belongs—outside your home. The breathtaking beauty of the beach from early morning to spectacular sunset is yours to enjoy from your private patio, sitting 30 feet above sea level.

The unusually large great room includes a seating area with a large flat screen TV and blu ray player, a game table for 4 to 6, a dining room table that seats 10, and a large, open kitchen with 4 barstools. It also has a queen sleeper sofa for our guests. The sun porch and large master bedroom both have spectacular Gulf view picture windows, but you can see the ocean from all common living areas in the home.

The king size master bedroom has a flat screen TV and blu ray player, along with plenty of drawer space, a walk-in closet and a private bathroom. Bedroom 2 sleeps 5. It has a Twin Bunk Bed w/Trundle in the same room with a Queen - the perfect room for a family. Bedroom 3 has 2 queen beds. All bedrooms have attached full baths with tub and shower, that can also be directly accessed from enclosed outside showers.

Our friendly Concierge Service (dwell) provides upgraded amenities along with high quality linens. They offer multiple services to our guests, including purchasing and delivering groceries and free pick up and delivery of rental bikes, paddle boards, backpack chairs, and baby gear. We also recommend a reliable local service for delivery of wooden beach chairs and umbrellas.

Energy efficient windows and doors throughout keep the home better insulated and quiet. Both sides of our home offer you privacy from the guests in our only two neighboring beachfront homes. Separate laundry room has a large new washer and drier set. Parking is provided for 5 vehicles, with 3 in the garage.

We do not allow pets.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1970

About the owner: Our family has been vacationing at Seagrove Beach since 1952. The extensive local shell collection in our entryway is evidence of many, many years of beach walks at Seagrove.

Why the Owner Chose Old Seagrove Beach, Seagrove Beach, FL, USA:
Our Dad designed this house and it was built in 1970 when there were only 7 other beachfront homes between ours and Grayton Beach State Park. (No Seaside! No Watercolor!) Several generations of family have enjoyed wonderful vacation getaways in Seagrove Beach over the last 45 years. We hope you learn to love Seagrove Beach like we do.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We think you will find the large spacious living area and large bedrooms at Step Back in Time Cottage refreshing in this day of building beach properties to hold the largest numbers of people per square foot. In addition, from the moment you walk in you will have a gorgeous view of the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. Whether you are inside or out, the Gulf is always there for you to enjoy.
