SOOOO close to the beach and PET FRIENDLY - please see reviews from previous guests who love staying here.
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 is a firepit and gas grill for outdoor cooking and entertainment. There is also an affordable bike and beach gear 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 SOOO CLOSE - 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.

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 Santa Rosa Beach
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.

Comfortable home, just a block from the heavenly beach
My husband, dog and I stayed at Sandy Pause for five nights on vacation. The owner, Donna, was extremely accommodating, responsive and hospitable. The home is located in a quiet, cul-de-sac neighborhood, literally across the street from the water. It was well-equipped for those who enjoy cooking, has a lovely fenced in back hard, plus lots of beach accessories like rafts and chairs. The second floor balcony off the master bedroom is a lovely reading spot, especially if it's raining by chance and it really had all the comforts of home. Since our dog is a member of the family, we really appreciated the chance to bring him to the beach.
All in all, it was a wonderful stay. I would absolutely stay here again, and recommend it to others.
Thank you, Donna!
Wonderful location and property
Owner was incredibly friendly and helpful and location was perfect! Close to beach and easy access to Seaside.
The house was nice and well maintained. We were looking forward to using the fire pit since it was cool at night, but it did not work. The owner was great to get someone out there to look at it immediately, but it couldn't be fixed while we were there. Everything else worked great and we enjoyed our stay. Thank you!
Thank you for the review, Glenda. Thanks for letting me know about the firepit not working. We had no idea until we heard about it from you. We tried so hard to get it fixed during your stay, but it wasn't possible. I'm actually still having trouble getting someone to fix it. Apparently, there aren't many people willing to work on gas. Hoping to get it working as soon as possible and definitely for your next stay - ha!
This house was perfect for our family vacation! Very open and charming living space—everything was nice but still very comfortable. Also very close to beach access! Donna was extremely responsive and considerate throughout.
Thank you for the review and information, Jacki. Glad you had a wonderful time - hope you guys make it back!
Great location, spacious, clean and homey!
Comfortably appointed home for the family, the perfect balance of lived-in and maintained for you to enjoy. Loved how close it was to the beach and other conveniences, yet far enough away from the busiest stretches of beach to have room to breathe. Effortless.
Glad you had a great stay, Tracey. Hope you guys make it back soon.
Lovely home in a great location!
Very nicely decorated, clean, and well equipped. Only a 10 min bike ride from the center of Seaside and right across the street from the beach,1/2 block to a convenience store, 5 min from various restaurants. A great location to take the family including the furbaby.
Thank you, Samantha, for the great review and information! Glad you had a great stay!!
***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.
