About Scott and Peggy

Atlanta based family of four. We enjoy entertaining, especially at the beach !

Scott and Peggy purchased this house in 2013

Why Scott and Peggy chose Beaches of South Walton

Beautiful beaches, comfortable house. 2 story layout allows for the adults to enjoy cocktails on the balcony and living room while the kids play downstairs.

Seacrest Beach is a great community, excellent mix of owners and weekly renters. Nearby shops are convenient - yogurt shop is a quick walk away and is open until 11pm.

What makes this house unique

We love the views from the balcony. Plus, I always told my wife that someday we would own palm trees - now we do !

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This was great for our big group! The pool was amazing and the tram stop we didn't use but it's right by the house if we had wanted to. The only downside was the microwave didn't work, we told maintenance a couple times but no one fixed. It worked out because we just baked our leftovers in the oven! My mom wants to come next year so hopefully we can stay again!!

Very dirty floors

  • 3 of 5

The property location and community are great but this house needs a new cleaning crew! I had seen other posts about the cleanliness and hoped that it had gotten better, but it was as bad as previously stated. Your feet are black after waking barefooted. It just seemed like things were poorly cleaned and not kept up well for awhile. The microwave does not work and it looks like it hasn't worked in awhile. The place just needs a deep scrub down and some TLC. We wouldn't stay at this property again.

Great property with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Great layout for a large group with multiple private bedrooms and bathrooms. Good use of downstairs room as additional sleeping space. Everyone had plenty of room and thoroughly enjoyed their stay. Easy walk to the beach and great community amenities including restaurants, bikes, donuts, and evening entertainment. Pool was great and not crowded. Very relaxing week away from the crowded areas but an easy drive to Grayton, PCB, and Destin for the time we wanted to do more. Will definitely go back.

Nice community. Clean neighborhood and the tram service made it easy to get to the beach!

  • 3 of 5

We took our extended family of 12 and the house was fine for our needs. The description needs to make it clear that one of the 4 bedrooms is the sunroom with a day bed/trundle. I had to buy an air mattress for our oldest son and his fiance to sleep on. The description should also let people know the kitchen and living room are on the second floor. Lastly, the house was not cleaned well.The floors were filthy and I had to sweep and mop them, and we found some trash left by previous guests under the master bed and in a dresser drawer in one of the bedrooms downstairs. Overall we enjoyed our stay and had a wonderful vacation. Not sure we would stay in this house again.

Owner's Response: We were so sorry to read that these guests were not happy with the cleanliness of the house. We have already spoken to both our property manager and the housekeeping supervisor about the problem to make sure it does not happen again! Next time if there is a problem with the cleanliness of the house we hope any guest will call our property manager or us right away so we can have the housekeepers return and resolve the matter instantly, rather than have you take time away from your vacation cleaning! Suggestions on how to improve the description of our home, are always welcome! While we have many pictures posted, we are always looking for ways to improve our listing so quests really know what to expect. Our family wants your family to be comfortable and feel at home at our little Seacret by the Sea. Thus when I saw the number of adults in this party, prior to confirming the reservation, I had a long email correspondence about the sleeping porch and there only being a daybed and trundle in it. When they told me they had already decided to bring a blow up air mattress for one of the couples for the sleeping porch because it looked like there would be plenty of room, we felt confident they would be happy and the booking went forward. Once again all we can do is apologize and as we said above work to better characterize the description of the house.

Excellent location in great beach area

  • 5 of 5

For Spring Break 2015, we decided to join about half of North Texas on the beaches of 30A. We stayed with friends at this Seacrest Beach beachhouse and had a fabulous time. While the house is set in a quiet area deep into the neighborhood, away from the traffic on 30A, it's still a short walk to the beach or the shopping areas of Seacrest and Rosemary Beach. There's a complimentary golf-cart shuttle as well to get you quickly to the beach. We brought our own bikes, but it's easy to rent them there, and the kids can safely get around on their own. Seaside, WaterColor, and Grayton Beach are a short drive away for more shopping and dining options. There are great golf options nearby, lots of places to ride bikes, deep sea fishing, and the like, in addition to the beach, of course. The owners are very accommodating. All in all, a great house in a great location.

Our new Family Sea-cret!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had been to Destin and PCB before, but never the 30A area. This was our first time...and we fell in love. The combination of this beautiful home, neighborhood and location made for a dream beach vacation. We even skipped the beach a couple days to sit at the resort style pool in the middle of the neighborhood instead. I don't usually write reviews, but couldn't help but show my excitement about this house and the owners (who were awesome to work with). The house was so nice and cozy, we spent most nights making dinner there instead of hitting the restaurants. Our son was able to take the bottom floor while the adults enjoyed the top floor (which is actually where the kitchen/living room are, pretty neat). Also, plenty of bike rentals, sidewalks and golf carts for easy transport when needed. My wife has already been in touch with real estate agents in the same neighborhood, but I suggested we just keep returning to this house as part of our new family tradition. Just perfect!
