About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 1/2 Bath, Sleeps 10 In Charming Seacrest, Near The Beach

**Hi there, this is Aimee - Beyond the Sea is my home (and one of my favorite places!) Also, If you are thinking of using "Book it Now" contact me first to confirm pricing ... now go ahead and read why Beyond the Sea would be a great place for your vacation! :) **

Picking a vacation rental is exhausting isn’t it? It wasn't so long ago that I was in your shoes and my head was spinning … after a while all the numbers of bedrooms and glowing adjectives ran together and became a blur.

At Beyond the Sea, we do things a little differently, this included – I hope it helps you out!

So why should you stay at Beyond the Sea? Let me give you a list of the highlights:

* Beyond the Sea sleeps 10, all in beds – 2 kings, 1 queen and 4 twins. No one is sleeping on a couch or a futon or a sleeper sofa in a common space at Beyond the Sea. Four real bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms mean that your whole group is comfortable day and night – and if there are two couples, no one has to fight over one King.

* The kitchen is stocked. I mean that. I like to cook when I’m at Beyond the Sea and I bought tools & gadgets & knives & pots & small appliances that I would want to use. The pots are large – so you can actually cook for a big group. The knives are sharp. And if you want a slow morning over a big breakfast, we have an electric griddle for pancakes and TWO waffle irons. The kitchen won’t let you down (there are even cookbooks!) – but if all you want to do is eat out, the fridge holds leftovers well.

* Beyond the Sea is furnished the way we’d want to find a rental. It doesn’t look like a condo furniture company dropped off a kit, and it doesn’t have the same style as everyone else. Think a little Hawaiian, a little Southeast Asian, a little 'fancy beach hotel' and you’ve got us. We believe in Egyptian cotton sheets, Pottery Barn and Ralph Lauren bedding, solid furniture and interesting art on the walls. We believe in a setting that makes you feel relaxed, and on vacation. We believe in fast internet. We also believe in extras, like games and books to read to your kids, like DVDs and beanbags and whole house speakers, like umbrellas and baby equipment and robes in the master suite. We like extras – and we think you will too! We even like to add extras to our extras - so we've bought 4 Electra Townies for the house in spiffy beach cruiser white, complete with baskets.

* Beyond the Sea is spacious. I know that word gets tossed around willy nilly, but I mean it. We are on a wide lot for Seacrest and the house uses it well. We have So Much Space in the living/sitting/dining room area – it swallows up our family of three. Ours is a house built for a group who wants to spend time together but not on top of each other.

* The outdoor spaces at Beyond the Sea are abundant. The front porch is the entire width of the house, and it is deep. There is a matching balcony above it, with plenty of seating behind the privacy of palm fronds. At the back of the house the screened porch with a dining table is perfect for late summer evening dinners and the private deck off the master bedroom is perfect for escaping to! Not all houses offer you so many comfortable ways to enjoy the outdoors.

* Location, Location, Location. Beyond the Sea is a very short walk to the pool (I timed it at 2 minutes) and a quick tram ride to the beach – but the walk isn’t bad either. My pre-schooler can do it without complaining!

For your non-water & sun time, a brief and pleasant stroll takes you to Alys Beach for lunch at George’s or a coffee while your kids play on the amazing playground next to Fonville Press. An even shorter walk will have you in the heart of Rosemary Beach for coffee at Amavida, lots of shopping, the childhood delight of the Sugar Shak and plenty of good food. A margarita from La Cocina, multiple treats and the shops of the Village of South Walton are even closer. Beyond the Sea feels like it is in the heart of the neighborhood (you can't see the edges), but sits in just the right place to make your walk to town a breeze.

If you must leave, the attractions of Panama City Beach are about a 15 minute drive, and if Destin calls, 30 minutes. And when you come home, there are two private parking places waiting for you.

Did that help? I hope so. We love it at Beyond the Sea, and we hope you will too. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us – we like to talk about our beach home. It is a wonderful escape from the real world for us, and we want to share it. Our fondest hope is that, like us...

Happy You’ll Be at Beyond the Sea!

About Aimee Aver

We are a pair of Californians who moved - by choice - to the Nashville, Tennessee area nine years ago. Our daughter is a Southerner by birth (she's six) and we really love living on this side of the Mississippi.

Aimee Aver purchased this house in 2013

Why Aimee Aver chose Florida

We vacationed in Seacrest with friends five years ago and we were hooked. Growing up in Southern California we had beaches - but nothing like this! We love the clear warm water, the sugar sand ... and the amazing Seacrest pool! The 'step back in time' atmosphere of the neighborhood and the quick walk to the restaurants and shops of Rosemary Beach charmed us, and we knew this was where we wanted to make memories with our daughter, family and friends.

What makes this house unique

Beyond the Sea felt like home to us the first time we walked through the doors. We love the open spaces, the screened porch for leisurely dinners and the big kitchen for cooking them. The front porch and steps are a perfect place to sit and blow bubbles and watch the world go by.

Wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful experience. House was beautiful and large enough for our family of 7 to have lots of privacy and space. Great pool just a short walk away. This was our first time to Seacrest, definitely will not be our last.

Owner's Response: Thanks Robin! We would love to have you back to stay with us. The pool really is great, isn't it, and an easy walk (even with kids). I'm glad you had room to spread out and enjoy yourselves. ~Aimee

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five had the most amazing time in Seacrest. This was our first beach vacation with our 3 small children (under 5 years old) and this home provided the ideal space for us to relax and play after long days riding bike and playing on the beach. We were so blessed by the thoughtfulness in how the home was set up to make it really feel like home. Our kids loved the books and board games. We hope to return next year!

Owner's Response: Thanks Kristin - I am so glad you felt like you were home - that's my goal! I know about all the stuff it takes to travel with kids, so I wanted to make that easier, down to books to read at night. I'm glad you made good use of those and the games. We would love to have you come back next year. :-) ~Aimee

A beautifully appointed home, perfect for our two families of four, with room to spare. The kitchen was the most well-stocked I have ever come across in a vacation rental. Also, for our convenience, were beach chairs, boogie boards, zip-up picnic blankets, board games, sunburn salves, plenty of beach towels, stain remover, etc. We had a delightful week! Thank you!

Owner's Response: A.K., you're welcome! No once wants to plan for sunburns ... but it sure is nice to not have to run out for aloe vera, right? I love to cook so it is important to me to have a stocked kitchen ... there is nothing worse than trying to feed hungry people with one pot and no knives. I'm glad you had a good week!

We could not have had a more wonderful stay at Beyond the Sea! The owner was always very responsive, interested, and enthusiastic in addressing our needs/concerns. We had a last minute glitch with some friends that were joining us and the owner bent way over backwards to help us out. We rode bikes every day, walked to many wonderful restaurants, and we often walked to the beach but the tram could not be more convenient when we had things to carry - it runs constantly during the day. I prefer this community over Rosemary Beach (which is right next door and seconds away) because it is quieter. I am ready to go back to this wonderful property again any time. We just loved every moment.

Owner's Response: Vicki, we would love to have you back! You were always such a pleasure to talk to and I am So Glad that you had a good time. We love the tram too, and biking is the best way to get around... there is something really special about our little slice of beach on 30A and it sounds like you got right in the spirit. Thanks again for your kind words, and we look forward to "seeing" you again at Beyond the Sea! ~Aimee
