Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Baths, Sleeps 4; plus LR pull out couch queen size

Treat yourself to a memorable stay in Beachside VIllas located in family oriented beautiful Seagrove Beach. Conveniently situated between the two pools (both with restrooms and one pool heated when weather appropriate), our condo is steps across the parking lot to the short stroll down Beachside Villas’ private boardwalk with one step down to the white sands – no hassle with lugging beach gear down steep stairways. Chairs and umbrellas are available for rental. Bike rentals are convenient, as well, with door to door delivery.

Parking for two cars is right in front of the unit making loading and unloading easy.

You enter on the 1st floor into a bright open plan living room, dining room, and fully equipped kitchen with 2 bar stools for additional dining. The living room has a HD flat screen TV/DVR with flat screen TV’s in both bedrooms, as well. All three TV's have Netflix. The master suite offers a new king mattress with plenty of space in the room which has hardwood floors. The rest of the condo has beach-proof tile flooring. The 2nd bedroom has new pillow top mattresses – two twins – and has a marvelous view of Eastern Lake. A new refrigerator was installed in December 2015, new full size front loading washer and dryer dishwasher, and microwave were added November 2017. Both bedrooms have full baths with tub/shower to give everyone a quick refresh after a day on the shore. Free wifi internet, cable, and phone are furnished.

The unit is listed as sleeping 4, but the living room couch pulls out and sleeps 2; however the living room is small, and it gets crowded with the couch out. It just depends on what you are comfortable with.

The patio is shaded with loads of palm trees in view, just part of the fantastic landscaping at Beachside Villas. It seats 4.

Another way to enjoy nature is to walk, run, or bike down the 17 miles of trails on 30A. Several state parks are nearby for exploring and a beach picnic for a change of scenery.

Besides having convenient beach access, our unit backs up to lovely Eastern Lake and its charming lily pads. Two BBQ grills, one behind the unit and one to the left, overlook the lake. Each has prep tables, and one has a dining deck by the lake. Not only can you walk to see the sunrise on the beach, you also can step out your door with a cup of coffee and view it rise over the shimmering lake.

For more action, Seaside is 2-3 miles west with the famous restaurants Great Southern Grill and Bud and Alley's. Lots of shops abound there, including everything from quaint Modica Market to wonderful art galleries. Rosemary Beach is 5 miles east with cobblestone streets, wine and tapas bars, boutiques, and moderate to fine dining. Gourmet fare is available at 30A, about 1/2 mile away

For busy night life besides Seaside and Rosemary Beach, Destin is 15 miles west with plenty of restaurant/bars, most with outdoor seating. Destin also makes for a great more reasonable. There are children's activities there, as well as in Panama City Beach.

Seagrove Beach gives you the best of both seaside worlds - whatever you are looking for, destination on rainy days with two huge outlet malls - one rather exclusive, the second more reasonable. Seagrove offers tranquility and family time or the more active beach life.

About M Elizabeth Parker Pell

We vacationed with family for years at Seaside, so we know 30 A well, but when it came time to buy, we chose Seagrove Beach. Not crossing the road is such a relief! Close, convenient beach access became the primary 'must have' for our purchase. Guests will find Beachside Villas quiet and perfect for families and couples who want to avoid the commercialism of Destin or Panama City, yet both are 15-20vminutes away. We found this most appealing, as our family ranges from ages 68 to 25 years old, and the young singles, the couples with young children, and, of course, John and I, the oldsters, all love it here, and everyone finds activities that keep them asking for time to grab a stay at Sea Dream. I'm a retired English professor, and John is Coordinator of Guitar studies at Belmont University here in Nashville. He also has a busy performing schedule. John is from Boston, and I grew up with the ocean as my front yard in Virginia Beach. It has been my dream to have a home again on the sea to share with my family, and now we finally made it happen! We couldn't be happier with our choice of Sea Dream.

Why M Elizabeth Parker Pell chose Seagrove Beach

Beachside Villas is away from the razzle-dazzle of Destin and Panama City, but both are within 15-20 miles. If you like high-rise living and crowded beaches, you won't like Seagrove Beach. You can visit Seaside and Rosemary Beach within minutes. We love the family atmosphere while also being the perfect romantic getaway. It's also great for Snowbirds.

What makes this condo unique

Sea Dream sits beachside of 30 A, but it's tucked away 3 or 4 blocks from the hustle and bustle of the main road. When you enter the complex, you enter a world of comfort and serenity.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the review! We're pleased you found it had everything you needed and that you enjoyed being so close to the pool (but not close enough to be bothered with noise) and the beach. Hope to have you back again.

Comfortable condo

  • 4 of 5

Decorated very nicely, master bed one of the most comfortable we have had in a rental. Perfect for a couple & 1 child. Could use more towels in the bathrooms, light bulbs out in one bathroom, housekeeping was decent but not sure how the massive hair balls were missed & why the patio wasn't cleaned (looked like a storage area). Overall it is a decent, comfortable condo. Easy access to the beach.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the compliments on the décor. Yes, we love that bed , too. We put it in this summer. The main two reasons we bought the condo was easy access to the beach and no stairs down to the sand. Will get more towels put in. The condo is always spotless every time we arrive, and this is the first complaint I have had. I apologize for any problems. The cleaner who prepared for your stay was fired. Hope to have you back again.

Cozy condo in close proximity to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 enjoyed our week in Elizabeth's condo. We found the pictures to be accurate and the furnishings to be clean and comfortable. While not a large unit, we felt the space was well-designed. We loved that the complex is on the south side of 30A -- it was a short walk across the parking lot and to the beach! Elizabeth was very responsive to our questions and booking was a breeze. We would recommend!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you had a good time in our space! Proximity to the beach was what sold us on purchasing there. I just love not having to go down a long, steep flight of stairs to hit the sand or to have to cross 30A. I also enjoy sitting by the little lake with the lily pads in the mornings. We're happy to have helped you in any way possible and would love to have you back again.

good things come in small packages

  • 4 of 5

Well equipped and clean rental unit. Is fine for 2 people, but the kitchen, living room not large enough for 4. Location is fine with short walk to beach with pool next door to rental. Owner provides chairs and other items for use on beach. Also, kitchen table area very small.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you enjoyed your stay and found the amenities nearby, especially the beach. So sorry you felt cramped. We stay with 5 and don't have problems, but we are outside most of the time, even at night with the stars on the beach. Hope to have you back soon!

Clean, well stocked and close to beach

  • 5 of 5

This is a clean place to stay. The bedrooms are good sized and each has a bathroom. The kitchen and LR are a little small, only one sofa in the LR. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils and dishes. The only thing we needed that it didn't have was bread or muffin pans to make cornbread in. Bring your own cooking oil and spices. There is just a short walk to the beach. The weather was unpredictable so we were back and forth to the beach a lot. Nice washer/dryer. Overall, I had no complaints!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you started out with "clean." I think my housekeeper is the greatest. So, we need bread and muffin pans. Will do. We love the close proximity to the beach, too. That's why we bought it, and the fact that there were no stairs down to the beach. John and I are happy you had a pleasant stay and hope to have you back.
