Property description

This is an exclusive gated neighborhood with strict security guard supervision and a palm tree lined boulevard that leads to the white sand beaches. Play on the beach and then walk up the boardwalk and take a nice swim at the pool overlooking the emerald coast. Our beach home has three bedrooms, and three baths with a large covered deck off of one of the upstairs bedrooms.

No surprises! It's clean and well designed. There are two queen beds and two bunk beds. It's newly painted with tropical colors and furnished with most everything a home has to offer, including wi-fi and a new high definition televisions. Call me if everything is not just right. I want you to enjoy our home and come back again. A non-smoking inside or outside, no pets home.

A gift of soap, detergent, toothpaste, coffee with filters, shampoo, body wash and tissue is included. Just bring your toothbrush!

No hassles with a key. The door has a pass code.

- Vacation Guarantee-
Simply book your arrival at least thirty days out, and if a tropical storm system is threatening the Florida Panhandle during the dates of your stay, you can cancel and receive a full refund of your deposit. A named tropical system must be predicted by the National Hurricane Center to impact the Florida Panhandle between Pensacola and the Big Bend Area. And, of course, the offer is not valid on reservations made within thirty days of the arrival date.
Refunds are not given for inclement weather. In the event of a mandatory evacuation, only the unused portion of your stay will be refunded. No refunds will be given for voluntary evacuations.
Consider Trip Cancellation and Interruption Insurance!
Should the need to cancel arise outside the 30 days prior to your arrival, you will forfeit 10% of your deposit. If cancellation occurs within 30 days of your arrival date, the entire deposit will be non-refundable and non-transferable. If you shorten the length of your stay within 30 days of your arrival date, you will be charged 30% of the rate of the canceled nights. For reservations made within 30 days of your arrival date that are cancelled, the 50% deposit will be forfeited.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Terry and Beth Slocum live in Cartersville, Georgia.

Why the Owner Chose Seacrest, FL, USA:
Doodlebug is 100 yards from the beach, in a gated community with a day time guard, which is great for children who want to play outside. Two of the most beautiful communities in Florida are adjacent to Doodlebug which are Alys Beach, and Rosemary Beach. There are great restaurants and shops within walking distance.
