About the Property

4 Bedroom / 4 Bathroom Gulf View Beach House

Welcome to 'Graceland by the Sea' our luxury beach home in the exclusive and private community of Seacrest Beach North. It is located between Rosemary and Alys beach and is in close proximity to Seaside, Seagrove, Water Color, Destin and Panama City Beach. It is one of the most spacious and definitely the best location that Seacrest has to offer. It is located just steps away from the private beach with deeded access(approximately 200 yards) and is walking distance to shops, restaurants and bars as well. A private beach shuttle is also offered at no expense. One call away and they pick you up at your front door. This makes your trip to the beach much easier when you are carrying a large amount of gear or you need assistance with the elderly or children. Even closer than the beach is the legendary Seacrest 12,000 square foot swimming pool with waterfalls, fountains and two bath houses.

This three-story, four-bedroom / four bathroom home has been tastefully decorated to make you feel at home while on vacation. We offer a large selection of DVD's, board games, video games, etc. just in case of those unfortunate rainy days. We also have an outdoor hot tub located just off of the In-law suite. The manicured landscape does a great job of shading the hot tub area and provides great privacy as well.

The first floor has a large entrance way and spacious, private in law suite with kitchenette (sink, microwave, refrigerator, and ice maker)and two queen beds. French doors lead to the front porch where the hot tub is located.

The second floor features the main den area with gas log fireplace, fully integrated DVD audio system for indoor/outdoor use. It includes a common area bathroom (Shower/Tub Combo) which is directly beside the bedroom for easy access. Bedroom has two single Beds and is equipped with a flat screen TV and DVD player. Rear door of the bedroom leads to a balcony with panoramic views of the Seacrest village. The kitchen is furnished with stainless appliances and granite counter tops along with a built in wine chiller.

The third floor has a spacious master suite (king bed) and master bath with incredible gulf views from the private balcony. Also, on the third floor, there is another bedroom (queen) with private bath and beautiful views of the Seacrest Villas.

Shopping, outdoor concerts, and restaurants are a short walk away.

There are numerous bike rental companies with pick up & drop off service. Everything is within walking distance or just a phone call away. We provide a guide book to help you with your stay. It contains restaurant menus, activity fliers, entertainment brochures, babysitting services , delivery services for groceries and take out. Lastly, as a family tradition, we leave a large candy bowl dish out for our guest. Our family loves to cheat the diet while at the beach so we really would like you to do the same and join the family. Look forward to serving you!

Beaches of South Walton (Seacrest Beach)

Graceland by the Sea is located on the hottest and most talked about area of the Emerald Coast. The Beaches of South Walton better known as 30-A are made up of 15 individual communities each forming a different personality since the inception. Seacrest is best known for its central location between Rosemary Beach and the more recent build out of Alys Beach. It boast the highest sand dunes along 30-A and it includes the Deer Lake State Park for all of you nature lovers. Our home is one of the largest homes and best located rentals in all of Seacrest. It sits directly on 30-A which allows for beautiful sunsets and ocean views with only a short 200 yard stroll to the beach. A private beach shuttle is provided as well, just a phone call away and they pick you up right at your front door. Our home is located even closer to the legendary 12,000 square foot Seacrest Pool. There are over 15 top notch restaurants within walking distance to Graceland by the Sea. I have made numerous trips where my car never moved out of the driveway. Along with the fantastic dining options, there are tons of options when it comes to specialty shops, clothing retailers, etc. Seacrest is positioned almost in the middle of Panama City Beach and Destin. PCB is a short 15-20 min. drive while Destin takes closer to 30 mins. to navigate. There are numerous activities in the Panama City area such as Pier Park, Gulf World, Shipwreck Island Water Park, and a never ending list of deep sea or inshore fishing charters. Destin has many draws as well including the Baytowne Wharf, Silver Sands Outlet Center, and the newly constructed Harbor Walk Village. Both PCB and Destin are great but once you make a visit to 30-A, you will see why this hidden gem is now the main attraction on the Gulf Coast. Currently, there is new construction of a shopping development in the Inlet Beach area called 30Avenue. This will be less than 2 minutes from our home. There is another shopping center that adjoins Seacrest North. It was recently purchased by a new development and they have done an excellent job bringing in a wide selection of small kiosk style shopping hubs ranging from a bagel shop to a high end doggy boutique, even a small pub with a great courtyard (includes a great splash pad for the kids while you relax). Take in a wine tasting at Rosemary, maybe a late night movie with the kids at the Alys Beach outdoor area or just sit back and listen to the music at the Seacrest pool. As you can see, there is no wrong answer.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Our family resides in the Birmingham, AL area and we love to get together at the beach each year and enjoy what 30-A has to offer which is a family friendly laid back atmosphere like no other.

Why the Owner Chose Seacrest, FL, USA:
We settled in the Seacrest area 10-12 years ago and developed numerous homes within the Seacrest Beach North community. We immediately fell in love with the area and we saw how bright the future could be on 30-A. It has grown to levels that I could not have imagined 10 years ago but it has still maintained the small town neighborly feel. This is the first time we have opened Graceland by the Sea for rental to the public, but we are very excited about others enjoying what we have for so many years.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Location is the biggest advantage for Graceland by the Sea. Being so close to both the pool and beach is a huge advantage. We always have kids who prefer one or the other so having such a short walking distance is key. We chose this location specifically because of the beautiful sunsets and ocean views but we quickly saw other advantages as well. We have immediate access to 30-A and we are just a few minutes from Highway 98. It is nice to have the luxury of PCB and Destin so close but I promise you that a couple of days on 30A will make you forget about all of the hustle and bustle of your previous vacations.
