'The Other Place' Gulf-Front with Panoramic Views

Bedrooms 4
Property type house


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

THE OTHER PLACE is a charming 40 year old, traditional Florida beach front cottage in a grove of indigenous landscaping. Located directly on the beach it also has a marvelous view of one of the few remaining 'dune' lakes in north Florida. The cottage has 3 spacious, calm bedrooms with expansive views to the Gulf as well as an interior room fitted out as a children's quarters with two bunk beds and an attached bathroom. A large second floor gathering room has a panoramic view of the Gulf and affords both sunrise and sunset vistas.

Experience a Seagrove as it originally was: unpretentious yet comfortable, scaled perfectly for a family get-away. Wide porches offer a place to relax or dine on; old fashion deck furniture invite you to spend lazy afternoons reading or dozing; and a hot tub, that is tucked away on a deck, is perfect for midnight soaks to the beat of the evening surf under the southern starry sky.

The house has been recently restored and refreshed by the decorating team of Lucullus Antiques of New Orleans, who have been featured in international style magazines and HGTV as well as Martha Stewart. It's textured interior evokes nostalgic beachside traditions while providing a fully equipped modern kitchen, 4 baths and a conveniently organized laundry room. Add to this the thoughtful touches of lovely bedding, wifi, smart tv and ceiling fans and you have a house where up-to-date technology is softened by traditional, understated comfort.

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our spring break trip at The Other Place. We had such a great time, as the house and location are fantastic. We brought our 2 teenage children and they each brought a friend, along with my mother. The house had a very nice layout and there was plenty of room for everyone to relax and move around. The decks and views are beautiful and there is nice furniture on both decks to relax and enjoy. It was great being gulf front as well as at the Eastern Lake inlet, as it gave everyone several activities to do right from the house. We kayaked into the lake and the boys went fishing in the lake, the kids loved crabbing in the inlet also. Everything was meticulously maintained and ready for our use. It felt like a home away from home. When dealing with property owners, you really can't find any nicer than Faye and Bill. They went above and beyond to make sure that we had a very nice stay at their house. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks so much Faye and Bill for everything!!!

Great place for a family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay as a family. Our 1st stay was awesome but the changes and updates Bill and Faye made to the house made our recent visit even more awesome! i have been vacationing in various places on Eastern Lake Road for the last 20 years. The area is so nice. Close to Seaside and not far from Destin or Panama City if you need a day from the beach. This house is a gem and will continue to stay anytime a group is going to the beach! Thank you Faye and Bill for this fabulous property to spend time with family and friends!

Awesome property!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 9th year to stay at The Other Place and as always it was a week to remember! The house is located right on the beach. with the Gulf and Eastern Lake just steps away. We have a total of 9 people (2 families) and there is lots of room. The kids love having the inlet to the lake right next to the house. The views from the upper deck are gorgeous and we eat dinner there every night. The kitchen is well stocked and has everything you need. The owners, Bill and Faye are so nice and easy to work with. They take good care of the house and it shows! It is clean and well maintained. They just did an update and it looks great.

We wouldn't stay anywhere else. We just returned and are already looking forward to staying at The Other Place next summer!

More than we could have hope for!!!

  • 5 of 5

After 20 years of family vacations on Holiday Isle in Destin, our family made the decision to move east to a less crowded, more laid back location. This is when we discovered the Seagrove area and The Other Place. I can't say enough good things about our experience.

The house was exactly what we needed and then some. The pictures don't do the house justice. Faye and Bill have done an excellent job of keeping things updated and clean. The space was perfect for our family of 11...the decks being the best part of the house. It was so nice to be able to just walk out the back door and a few steps to our set up on the beach.

The biggest surprise of the week was Eastern Lake. We had read about the lake in other reviews, but were skeptical about how much we would actually use it. Well, the week we were there happened to be be a heavy seaweed week for the gulf, and the lake was fabulous. The kids spent all week hanging out there. It's safe, shallow and warm...perfect!

We were there over the 4th. We went out to the beach and were able to see the fireworks from Seaside, and many other surrounding individual shooting them off on the beach. It was really wonderful!

I think it's safe to say that we have found our new vacation home. Thanks Faye and Bill for sharing it with us!

The Other Place

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing in various condos on Eastern Lake Road for 18 years. Our first time upon seeing this house, I said when we go as a family, I would like to stay in that house. This was the year for that trip. The house is beautiful and a great location. We enjoyed the large deck with it's amazing views! I can say it lived up to my expectations! Will definetly stay there again as a group...Thanks Faye!!!

Favorite place of all time!

  • 5 of 5

Our family returns to "the Other Place" year after year and its always just as magical and beautiful as we remember! Faye's deck is the best place to be from sunrise to sunset... other than the beach! We start each day with coffee overlooking the lake and gulf as the sun rises. We cook here at the house and almost always eat out on the deck. The views are just heavenly. The owners are great and have thought of all the smallest details to make your stay unforgettable. This year we brought our new grandbaby for the first time and enjoyed playing in the lake, something we have looked forward to for years. If you are looking for the very best location around.. and somewhere to make memories you'll never forget, this is your place!
