Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We've both grown up along the beach. West Coast for me and North East Coast for my husband, but nothing compares to the world famous sugar white sand beaches and emerald waters of Northwest FL. Friends introduced our family to the beaches of 30A in 2005 and we fell in love, hoping to one day own a beach house that we could share with family, old friends, and new friends. From our family to yours, we sincerely hope you enjoy your stay and make lasting memories to cherish.

Why the Owner Chose Beach District , Seaside, FL, USA:
Location, location, location! Walk and bike everywhere, you'll never need to get in the car again. Turn to the right and you'll encounter adorable shops and a winebar, turn to the left and you are 5 homes down from Seaside with amazing restaurants and outdoor amphitheatre. Turn behind you and discover all the trails, footbridges and parks that surround Western Lake, providing a way for neighbors to connect for a morning walk or bike ride. Go directly across the street to the beach and resort, home of the James Beard award-winning restaurant, 'Fish Out of Water.'

The Unique Benefits at this House:
With the house you will receive guest passes for full access to all 5 pools within WaterColor, the Beach Club, and other paid amenities like kids camp, tennis center, bike and standup board rentals. And there are NO extra resort fees, no amenities fees, no extra taxes.
