About Stephanie Kotarski

We have an immediate family of 12 people (6 adults, 4 college students and 2 teenagers) and this house fits us perfectly!

Why Stephanie Kotarski chose Seacrest

We have always loved 30A with its pristine conditions and its great family atmosphere. We immediately fell in love with Seacrest and have returned year after year. It represents the best the Gulf has to offer.

What makes this house unique

Heavenly Sunshine is located directly behind Seacrest Village so the shops and restaurants of that Village are close at hand. Plus, the shops and restaurants of Rosemary Beach are only a couple of blocks away. The proximity to pool, beach and shops/restaurants makes Heavenly Sunshine one of the best-located houses in Seacrest!

Nice comfortable house close to activities.

  • 4 of 5

Overall great stay for family of 12. Sterling could do a better job checking small stuff in house each week. Had to replace propane tank for grill. A DVD player was not working. Several light bulbs burned out.

Seacrest community very serious about rules in pool area and use of wristbands for tram service. Security checks tram for tents and roller coolers.

Again nice stay at this house if willing to play by all the rules.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice thoughts about Heavenly Sunshine. It is a great house for a large group and it is so centrally located. We are sorry to hear about the propane gas, light bulbs and the DVD player. We will talk to Sterling. We will also be reaching out to you via email to reimburse you for the propane. We know how frustrating that is!!! We understand that Seacrest has become much more strict. Unfortunately, the community had too many people trying to take advantage of the beach and pool without staying in the community so the HOA had to put in place some rules. This was the first year of the implementation. Sounds like they may be heavy-handed. I will speak with the HOA about this. Again, thank you for your kind words about the house. It is very special to us so we want to assure that everyone who stays there enjoys themselves. Thank you , Stephanie

Heavenly Sunshine lived up to its name. My friends along with our kids rented this house for Spring Break and we were so happy. I slept in one of the queen beds and it was very comfortable. The house is furnished beautifully. It was located right behind the Village shops and restaurants. I was able to park my car on Saturday and not get back in it until the following Saturday. We walked everywhere and the kids rode bikes. I would recommend Heavenly Sunshine because it is one of the best located in Seacrest Beach and it is so comfortable. The tram pick up for the beach is at the front door of Heavenly Sunshine. The owners answered all our questions in a timely manor. Thank you so much for use of your beautiful home.

We have stayed in Heavenly Sunshine for three consecutive years for six weeks, beginning in January and ending in March. We couldn't be more pleased with all aspects of the house. In addition to a wonderful home with lovely furnishings, the location is superb. A brief walk takes you to the shops and restaurants of Rosemary Beach as well as to the beach. The owners are delightful to work with, always available, accommodating, and anxious to make your stay as enjoyable for you as they can. There are numerous homes and condos to rent in Seacrest Beach but Heavenly Sunshine is at the top!
