About April Lickovitch

Originally from Ohio and Minnesota, we now reside in Alpharetta, Georgia with our three young boys.

April Lickovitch purchased this house in 2012

Why April Lickovitch chose Seacrest Beach

On our first visit to 30A, we fell in love with the area and knew someday we would want to buy a home here. The white sand beaches and clear, turquoise water reminded us of vacationing in the Caribbean. The kids love the many ice cream shops and bike paths. And the artsy, quaint, eclectic arcitecture of the towns along 30A make us feel like we are in another world. We hope we can share our love of the area with you, by creating a home for you to enjoy that is luxurious, comfortable and fun for kids.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this home, because we found it to have a unique setting for Seacrest Beach. We just love how this home is tucked on a small side street, with a private, wooded backyard that overlooks a bike path. And, the home borders Rosemary Beach, so we are just a hop-skip-and-a-jump to some of our favorite Rosemary eateries around the corner!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Jun 24, 2017

An escape to the beautiful white sandy beaches of Florida was just what this Bear and his family needed. As we made the drive into Seacrest, we were pleased at the close proximity the house had to so many neat shops and restaurants along 30A. After parking our car in one of the two convenient parking spots right outside the house we walked up the few steps and into the beachy Sunshine Shack. We were instantly met with all the comforts of home. The kitchen and living room were beautifully decorated and the dining area had plenty of seating for the whole family. It was just perfect for the many evenings we spent playing cards and board games together. The kitchen had everything this Bear needed to prepare meals for the family. The open concept floor plan was spacious and very nice for keeping a good eye on the baby cubs running around. The living room windows gave us a pleasant view of the neighborhood trail system that you could access right off the back porch, which provided a lovely shaded path for walking or bicycling. We enjoyed the porch swing in the mornings while drinking our coffee and gearing up for long fun filled days at the beach. I must say it was tempting to begin hibernating once we slept in the spacious and cozy bedrooms. During the day we ventured a few steps around the corner to catch the free tram that took us over to access Seacrest beach. On days when we wanted to be more adventurous we would ride the provided bicycles to 30A. We were so thankful for all the awesome beach gear we were able to use during our stay, which made our time we spent at the beach even more special. When also spent time swimming in the luxurious and enormous pools just a few blocks from the house. April and her family were excellent hosts and made everything during our stay just as perfect as honey. This bear family definitely felt at home in Seacrest and can't wait to return!

The Sunshine Shack is a cute name but not at all a shack! Beautiful home in the heart of Seacrest!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience at this home! There were 11 of us. 4 adults and 7 children. Perfect place for this amount of people. The kids loved the bunk room and the couples enjoyed the larger rooms/beds. There is a nice, spacious kitchen to make meals and a large great room with a beautiful table to sit and enjoy each other. Off the great room is a very pretty, covered porch with a swing to enjoy the outdoors with a cup of coffee or glass of wine. This home is a short walk to the community pool and the tram stop to the beach is only a few steps away. The Seacrest Village is around the corner where you can enjoy live music, browsing in the shops, and have pizza, eat Mexican food at La Cocina or breakfast in a little, lighted alley way. So convenient! The owner of the home was very nice to work with and responsive to several special requests. We would definitely stay here again! It was truly a lovely experience.

Clean, convenient, felt like home

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay for our recent extended family vacation. April was so fast at responding to my questions and was very helpful. The location is perfect as it was a quick walk to the pool and just a shuttle ride away to the beach. The house was clean, convenient, and felt like home. We would definitely stay here again!

Great location and a family friendly house.

  • 5 of 5

Instructions for checking in were accurate and complete. We had no problems getting into the house or receiving parking passes or wristbands.

The house was clean and beautifully decorated.

There were toys, games and bikes, along with beach toys for the kids.

Ample storage in the kitchen for food and ample space for preparing meals.

Quiet neighborhood with close proximity to the pool and beach shuttles.

Beds were comfortable. HVAC worked well.

Our stay at Sunshine Shack was everything we hoped for and more. This home was darling, comfortable, practical, and in a great location. We would love to come back to Sunshine shack...such a great family home!

Seacrest Beach has a wonderful staff and tram that takes you to the beach. The pool is a whole series of pools that was the highlight of the trip for our kids. Beautiful in every way! Jackie from Texas

Very clean, well maintained property

  • 5 of 5

Probably the cleanest beach house we have ever stayed in. 2 families with 5 kids total had plenty of room. Absolutely loved the tram service to the beach. It made the trip to the beach a breeze, no whining kids on the walk to beach. Tram drops you off directly at beach, never waited more than 5 min for a tram. Would definitely stay again!
