About Laura

Anthony & Laura built their dream home in Seacrest in 2012. In 2013 we decided to construct the carriage house, which has been an exciting project, as we love the beach, so have incorporated a beach feel to the modern contemporary decor.

Laura purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Laura chose Beaches of South Walton

This is a new stylish carriage house, with construction completed in March 2014. We are locals and have extensive knowledge of the area to assist with eating out, recreational interests, water sports, fishing, getting around, concerts and shopping.

What makes this cottage unique

The property faces the sunset and overlooks a large green area, which makes it very tranquil and relaxing.

Casual elegance with the relaxation of the beach cozying up around you.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week and thoroughly enjoyed the comforts of the house and the surrounding community. The house is quaint but tastefully modern. Reflections of the relaxed Caribbean way of life meet crisp, clean decor. The beach and shops were convenient for anytime, day or night. Our first night, we took out to-go pizza from Pizza By The Sea and ate on the beach - ah, we made it. The pace of this vacation could be as relaxed as desired, but we did enjoy styled seafood dinners at Cafe 30A, Caliza, and The Great Southern Cafe. The kitchen at Mustique is also fully stocked for the nights that you make a quick pasta or grill a burger and head back to your beach camp. As for breakfast, Charlie's Donut Truck is a walk away and should not be missed for an early treat!

The beach chairs, towels, and umbrella provided meant we didn't have to rent any beach equipment - more to put toward food, right? We used the tram a few times but actually enjoyed walking the Seacrest Beach neighborhood most of the week. (Keep an eye out for the cats that seem to keep secret homes in hedges and under porches.) You know the beach is gorgeous if you Google photos of 30A, but if you happen to tire of wind or sand, the pool area is a perfect escape. You don't need to struggle to find the one dry or quiet area for your family either - the pools flower out from each other with infinity edges and fountains to add to the scene, so think plenty of room to spread out and choose your umbrella and play area.

My one suggestion for future guests would be to explore the surrounding beach towns as well because they are not very far at all, either on foot or beach bike or car.

Overall, we had a fantastic time, and each time we saw our hosts they made us feel perfectly at home on our vacation.

Thanks, Laura!

Pack your bags, you will want to live in this amazing home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I absolutely fell in love with this beautifully decorated carriage house. You can tell Anthony and Laura have put thought into anything that you may possibly have needed. We packed very light since we took advantage of flying Allegiant from Knoxville, and needless to say you don't really need much! Hairdryer (check), shampoo/conditioner (check), coffee (check), coffee filters (check), beach towels (check)... They had it!

The bikes and the shuttle to the beach were a perfect addition. Although it was a very busy time of year with spring break families, we had a truly amazing stay. This entire area of Seacrest, Rosemary Beach and Ally's Beach are simply beautiful. Don't wait, book your stay!

Very enjoyable stay at the Mustique Carriage House!

  • 5 of 5

The Mustique Carriage House was all we needed for a few nights getaway as a couple! We only wish we had been there on a weekend to buy some of Laura & Anthonys coffee at Seaside Sundries. We loved your recommendation of eating lunch at Crabby Steve's! Thanks for everything.

Stay at Mustique Carriage House, Seacrest, Florida

  • 4 of 5

This was a charming, well-lit and beautifully appointed carriage house in the heart of Seacrest Beach. There is so much to do in the area that it was hard to stick around Mustique, relax and enjoy the amenities, such as the personal grill, lavish pool and complimentary bicycles. The location is easy to find and within a few minute's walking distance from the beach or via the included shuttle service. We enjoyed sitting on the back balcony for breakfast as well. Laura was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. Would love to visit this spot again in the future!

Beautiful Apartment in Great Area

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this meticulously maintained apartment over the main house garage. It was separate from the main property and yet felt secluded because there are no properties next door or behind it. The hosts were wonderful and provided bicycles for us to ride around on. You can walk take a shuttle to the beach just a few blocks away. It was the perfect size place for a couple to "get away" and enjoy some Florida sunshine.
