Overview

About the property

2 Spacious Bedroom/2 Bath, Sleeps 6

Don't let the 2 bedroom tag fool you...this sweet cottage with an open floor plan and living area is spacious and allows for comfortable lounging while watching huge flat screen tv. Wifi, cable, and movie channels are included, and the home has washer/dryer for your convenience.

The home also features an updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite counter-tops, solid wood cabinets, breakfast bar, microwave, and pantry. It is fully stocked and ready to be used to create wonderful meals during your stay.

When the sand and salt become too much, and quiet spot for reading is needed, there is a clean and well-kept community pool just down the street with keyed access for renters.

For those ready to enjoy the outdoors, there are several beach chairs with umbrellas for your use. There is also an affordable bike rental facility next door. One fabulous feature of this area is the 20 miles of biking/walking paths along all of highway 30-A and in more tucked-away off-road trails.

The home is located walking distance from great local shopping and dining. Public beach access is just across Hwy 30-A. The beaches in this area of Florida can't be beat! We are in close proximity to many lovely communities with additional shopping and dining opportunities like Seaside (Just voted #1 Family beach in the world by Travel and Leisure Magazine), Watercolor, Rosemary Beach, and Grayton Beach only a bike ride away.

***By the way, I get push notifications on my phone when inquiries are made in order to be able to reply quickly to questions, so kindly refrain from sending inquiries between 11pm and 7am central time. Thank you for your consideration.***

About Donna Fargason

Our family has been traveling to this area of Florida for years and years. When we saw this place for sale this past fall, we had to snatch it up. It is so close to everything we love to do, and the beach access can't be beat short of being on the beach itself.

Donna Fargason purchased this house in 2012

Why Donna Fargason chose Beaches of South Walton

This property appealed to us because of it's location in wonderful Seagrove Beach, and its proximity to Seaside, Watercolor, and Rosemary Beach. The dining and shopping in the area can't be beat!! The neighborhood Gulf Mist is on a cul de sac and is occupied mostly by owners. It is well-maintained and monitored by people who know the area and care about the upkeep and reputation of the neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

This home also has a balcony upstairs and comfortable seating downstairs that allows one to enjoy the evening sunset and breeze. The firepit and courtyard are perfect for entertaining. There is also a garage and plenty of parking.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fantastic time at your lovely home. It was even better than it was in the pictures.

Great Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

The Beach is right across the street, and its beautiful and not crowded. Seaside ( cool resort area) is a short bike ride away. The house is beautiful, and very clean, we hung out on the back patio at night& had the fire going. Hope to be back next year. My whole family was impressed with Sandy Pause.

Very nice; great location!

  • 4 of 5

Shower heads are not adjustable at all and are placed too high for most people

A handheld shower head would be expected and would resolve some of the lack of adjustment issue.

Whirlpool tub doesn't work and has mildewed nozzles

Trash bags - no extra in the house besides one in trash can - insufficient for a stay longer than one or two days

Dryer is very loud

Mirror full length on each floor would be necessary for any women staying in the house

Downstairs bed is too soft and too low

Upstairs bed firmer but still too low

No wheels on trash barrel

Recycling container not provided

Could not get cable in upstairs bedroom. Is it connected?

TV system should be controllable by one remote. It's just not set up that way.

Owner's Response: Dale, thank you for your thoughts. Several of the items that were disappointing to you were pointed out in the instructional email I sent prior to your stay (trash bag supply, whirlpool, tv remotes), and others are new to me. It sounds like you have many helpful ideas and expectations. Hope you had a nice stay.

Wonderful Summer Rental

  • 5 of 5

This house felt like a home. It was pristine and smelled so fresh and clean when we walked in. The kitchen was full of all items needed to cook for a large family. The bonus was the backyard area. It had a grill and partially covered patio for outdoor eating. It also had chairs and a fire pit perfect for roasting marshmellows. There was also an outdoor showerhead to wash off from the beach before entering the house. Fantastic rental!!

Perfect for our family, including pets!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sandy Pause. The property owner was so kind to work with us and was very responsive. The amenities including fenced in backyard for dogs, gas grill, beach chairs and boogie boards were icing on the cake. We will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Haley, thank you for the great review! I'm so glad you had a great trip. I do want to note that the fenced yard is not guaranteed to be adequate for all dogs and also that we ask that dogs not be left unattended in the yard. I want to make sure people reading your review are aware. It's also not always predictable what beach amenities are available on-site. We try to stock well at the beginning of the season but things break and sometimes walk off or get left at the beach. Just want to make sure that people understand that the items you found are lagniappe and not guaranteed. Donna

Owner's Response: Rhiannon, I'm so glad you had a great time. Thanks for the comment about the pool. I don't think people realize how great and convenient it is - especially if you're a bit tired of sun and sand! Donna

***Pets and their owners are welcome at Sandy Pause. Our fenced in back yard is a perfect solution for travel with your pet.***

Seagrove (address listed as Santa Rosa Beach due to its unincorporated status) is a step back in time. While neighboring areas have become crowded and over-developed, Seagrove encompasses the very unique and lovely Seagrove Beach Community located in Walton County, Florida, in the state's panhandle. It boasts more than 60 public access beaches, as well as a number of beaches located in state parks, including Grayton Beach and Blue Mountain Beach.

Eden Gardens State Park features a 19th-century-style house set amidst beautiful moss-covered oak trees. The renovated home is a showcase for the second largest collection of Louis XIV furniture in the U.S. and offers a great glimpse into the country's past.

In addition to lounging on the beach and hiking in the parks, you can rent bikes to peruse the shops, go golfing or fishing, play tennis, and go on a guided tour. Horseback riding is available at several places in the area.

After you have spent the morning or afternoon at the beach you'll want to try one of the great local restaurants, and there are numerous casual dining options, including Pickles Beachside Eatery, Louis Louis, Red Bar, Cafe 30-A, Bud & Alley's, and the Donut Hole Bakery Cafe.

For those more interested in shopping, visit Magnolia House for its jewelry, handcrafted rugs and original artwork, Mystic Porte, which is home to a variety of unique shops, Seaside and Watercolor boutiques, and the Shops of Grayton, which specializes in fine art and gifts. Silver Sands Outlet Mall is a only a short drive to Sandestin, and offers hi-end shops such as Coach, Michael Kors, Saks Off-5th, Banana Republic, J. Crew, Brooks Brothers, and more. Nearby Panama City Beach's Pier Park is a mega outdoor shopping mall consisting of over a million square feet of specialty shops and restaurants plus a 16 cinema Grand Theater.

In Seagrove, look no further than Gulf Place. This shopping and dining village is located right across from the public access beach, Ed Walline Park, and features a great selection of clothing, surfing accessories and home décor items. And for a bit of extra pampering after a long day of shopping and beachside fun, there is also a lovely day spa.
