About Howard Wertheimer
He: Architect She:Landscape Architect (and artist) Our parents loved the beach. Our cottage is named after our mothers, Claire and Bea.
Howard Wertheimer purchased this House in 2014
Why Howard Wertheimer chose Santa Rosa Beach
We have been coming to the Florida Gulf Coast since the mid-1980’s. Having visited hundreds of beaches around the world, the Beaches of South Walton and 30A are the most beautiful stretch of beaches we have ever visited. Our family has always enjoyed coming to Seagrove Beach, and now we can all enjoy the beach in the comforts of our lovely new beach cottage on a more regular basis.
What makes this House unique
Every architect dreams about designing their own home. This is the second home that I have designed for my family. The unique spaces and attention to detail creates wonderful memories and experiences for us to enjoy, which we willingly share with our family and friends. Now you have an opportunity to also create these memories by staying at our custom-designed beach cottage.

Perfect stay with great amenities
We had a wonderful week at Claire and Bea.
The house is perfectly laid out with every needed area of space. We were surprised to see the loft area upstairs that was perfect for the kids.
The kitchen is well equipped, the beds and linens were super comfortable and the location was perfect. It is a very short walk or bike ride to the beach or the neighborhood pool.
We had everything we needed and more. We will definitely consider staying here for our next family vacation.
Kara and her family were wonderful and respectful guests. She was very easy to communicate with and appreciated everything our house had to offer.
Beautiful home in a quiet, private neighborhood
We stayed her for 5 nights in June and truely enjoyed our stay. The neighborhood is quiet with minimal traffic and our 5 year old enjoyed riding his bike on the street in front of the house. The beach is nearby and only about a 5 minute walk. We also enjoyed walking the nature trails within the community and walking to the local ice cream shop, coffee shop and donut shop which also offered hot breakfast. We went on several tours while here which included the private dolphin cruise and Coldwater excursions kayak tour, both I would highly recommend. This home was the perfect place for a relaxing vacation away!
We're so glad you enjoyed your visit. It sounds like you took full advantage of everything the house and neighborhood had to offer! Hopefully, you'll come back!
Amazing beach home
We absolutely loved everything about this wonderful vacation home! The location, the decor, the personal touches. We will definitely come back!
Thanks Stephanie! We're so happy you enjoyed your stay and look forward to having you as our guest again...don't forget to tell your friends!!
Great Beach House
Our family booked this beach house at the beginning of the summer season and we could not have been more pleased with the accommodations.
The owner has designed it with everything in mind to make your stay a comfortable one. The beautiful décor is just as the pictures represent! Our family enjoyed the four bikes as well as the games and activities that are provided. It is a short easy walk to 30A and the public beach access...we decided to rent a golf cart for the days we needed and it was perfect! It added to the fun that we had and made exploring the area that much more accessible too. The front porch was great for visits outside and the side yard has a place for grilling too. The owner is also responsive and easy to work with. We plan on booking this property when we visit the Seagrove area again!
Thank you for your kind words. We're really glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. We tried very hard to make this house our home, personalizing it with things we like since we use the house as often as possible. We did not want it to look or feel like a rental house. Please feel free to tell your friends, and we look forward to hosting you and your family again!
Lovely home with wonderful accommodations. A three minute walk to the beach with a lovely community. I'd highly recommend this house for anyone who is wanting a lovely place to stay while relaxing near the beach. Owners are equally wonderful and accommodating!
Family Beach House Vacation
Such a beautiful, spacious, well kept home. Quiet, friendly neighborhood. Very clean and well stocked. We had everything we needed to enjoy a wonderful week at the beach, including bikes and beach chair. My only complaint is that we didn't book a longer vacation.
I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at our beach house and had a wonderful time at the beach! Please feel free to tell your friends about our house...
