Property description

From the moment you set foot on the spacious front porch you’ll feel transported to another place. Time slows down as you all settle in to the casual, beachy pace of our home, dubbed “Ahh’s in the Sand”. Though located smack in the middle of everything on locally-famous 30A, the house is tucked away in a quaint neighborhood filled with funky Florida architecture on a very quiet street. You’re less than 100 yards from the beautiful Seacrest Beach Pool, and a quick walk/bike or FREE neighborhood Tram Ride to one of the most incredible Beaches you could ever find. Dine and shop at Rosemary Beach, Alys Beach, or the Villages of South Walton, all just a short stroll down 30A. After a quick stop at a nearby grocery store, you could literally park your car and never move it again until the time you have to leave. Beach Bikes are available to rent through a quick phone call, so you and your group can be pedaling along the 18 mile bike path that runs parallel to 30A in no time.

"Ahh’s in the Sand” boasts an expansive living area, with an open living/dining/kitchen where your whole crew can gather. The home was professionally decorated and won first place in the 2005 Parade of Homes; it has undergone additional upgrades since. Full of personal touches and amenities, you’ll quickly settle in and relax.

The first floor Master Bedroom features a King Bed and en suite bathroom with large soaker tub and walk-in shower. The second floor boasts two more bedrooms, one with a Queen Bed, and the other with a Queen bed along with XL twin Bunks that are 5" longer than usual so that even adults can sleep comfortably on them. Each bedroom has its own sink area and shares a full bath between them. The third story houses the fun Crow’s Nest where the kids can watch movies of their choosing and extra guests can sleep on the Futon Bed . Watch the beautiful sunsets or view the stars from the balcony that surrounds the Crow’s Nest – it just can’t be beat! With large HDTV flat screen TV’s and cable access in the family room, Master Bedroom and the Crow’s Nest, along with Wi-Fi throughout the house, everyone can remain plugged-in to whatever or whoever is important to them.

When it's meal-time, the kitchen delivers. With built-in dishwasher, electric oven and range, microwave, and refrigerator/freezer with ice and water in the door, meal prep is a breeze. Add to that the multiple spacious counter tops and the fact that your gas grill is just steps away on the screened back porch, well it'll be easy to please the crowd. The dining room seats 8 easily, while three more can pull up to the counter nearby.

”Ahh’s in the Sand” is beautifully landscaped, with a deep, shaded front porch set back away from the street so that you can watch all the goings-on while enjoying refreshments and conversation with the folks you’re with. Drink your morning coffee out on the porch and wake up to the feel of the ocean breeze. Now that's livin'!

But the reason you come down here are the Beaches, right? “Windex and Sugar” – that’s how the color of the Water and Sand have been described along the Emerald Coast, this slice of paradise that comprises the northwestern panhandle of Florida. The Beaches of South Walton have long been popular vacation destinations for those seeking a relaxing beach getaway, far from the bustle and crowds found elsewhere. After your day filled with sun and sand, enjoy the restaurants here in Seacrest Beach or walk on over to Rosemary Beach for a casual snack, or dress up for dinner. Come and see for yourself - it’s all right here!

Please note - In consideration for all of our guests, this is a non-smoking home. We do not allow smoking inside or outside the property. Thank you for your consideration.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We live in the Kansas City metro area, so we relish visiting the sun and sand - especially during the colder months. That Florida sunshine and beautiful beach have a way of lulling all your cares away! We have two kids who are finishing college and launching their young lives. I’d say we were empty nesters, but we have two sweet rescue greyhounds at home who get most of mom’s attention when everyone else is away.

Why the Owner Chose Seacrest, FL, USA:
We came to this area on vacation a while back, prompted by a number of friends who recommended a visit here. Everyone said that this area is absolutely gorgeous, and raved about the beaches. When we finally came down here we were blown away by the beauty of the area. We absolutely fell in love with Seacrest Beach in general, and this house in particular , as it has so much character and charm We are looking forward to spending many happy vacations with our friends and family, and sharing it with folks like you. With Destin's NW Regional Airport just 45 minutes away, and Beaches Airport in Panama City less than 20 minutes from our front door, the trip is easier than ever.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the quiet bustle of the neighborhood, seeing families pedaling down the road together and packing up the tram for a day at the beach. This neighborhood is very family-oriented, from the Tram Drivers to the Pool Attendants and the folks who Rake the Gravel parking spaces and set up and retrieve your Trash Bins twice weekly (!!), everyone's objective is for YOU to have a wonderful time. This is a very friendly, convenient, quiet, well-kept neighborhood full of charm and conveniences.
