About Owner/Manager

I grew up and continue to live in Albany Georgia. After attending Auburn University I taught physical education for 25 years. Presently I market Shep's Cheese Crispies, a special cheese straw my mother developed.

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2003

Why Owner/Manager chose Seacrest Beach

I chose the Gingerbread House because of it's location, within walking distance to the pool and the ocean. Also I love the proximity to Rosemary Beach tennis courts and the delicious restaurants in the area.

What makes this house unique

The Gingerbread House is very special to me due to it being furnished with many of my parents antiques making it hold a warm place in my heart.

Great location and amazing accommodations

  • 5 of 5

The property and location were great, we had a big group and easily fit our 12 people into the house with plenty of room to spare. There is a TRAM stop 100ft from the front door and we got great service every time we called. I highly recommend the property for families or groups that need space. The upstairs deck on the master suite was the best morning coffee spot, just peaceful and relaxing.

We had to change our plans a little due to a scheduling conflict and the owner could not have been more gracious and understanding. Really a great vacation !!!

We Loved It ❤️

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house . From big dinners and games around the dining room table to morning coffee and afternoon cocktails in the living room, it was a comfortable and fun place to be. There was something for everyone to do - great beach, pool , shops, restaurants, tennis- all close by and the weather was beautiful. I highly recommend the Gingerbread House.

Perfect layout and location

  • 5 of 5

The Gingerbread House is very clean and tastefully decorated. The location is perfect. The neighborhood is great for walking and biking, and it is close to shops and restaurants that you can walk or bike to as well. The walk to the beach is easy, or you can take the tram. The kitchen is well equipped for meal preparation, with a pantry for storage. A master suite downstairs, and an upstairs suite allow for privacy. There are two additional bedrooms with a full connecting bath. The layout is perfect for a single family, multiple families, or a gathering of friends.
