About Shirley Castillo

We live in Georgia. We have two very busy boys and a princess. We love the beach and the family environment that highway 30A and Seacrest offer.

Shirley Castillo purchased this house in 2010

Why Shirley Castillo chose Beaches of South Walton

We loved the area after vacationing in Hway 30a one summer, and just after one visit we decided to buy this house. This house has very spacious entertaining areas as well as spacious bedrooms. We love the faboulus screened back porch. This area is so great that you can grill and relax outdoors in good or bad weather, even with pouring down rain. We love walking or biking to all the shops and restaurants nearby as well as to the breath taking and world famous beaches. Our kids just love the freedom of biking or walking to all the candy, toy and ice cream stores.

The area is very peaceful and family friendly with beatiful beaches with white sand. The exclusive Seacrest lagoon pool is amazing. The Seacrest Beach Tram is very convenient in case you do not want to walk the short distance to the beach. The Tram picks you up at your front door or at the beach, and you just need to throw your cooler, bags and toys.

This is the perfect place to create family memories that will last for years to come.

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

We came with another family and had a fabulous time. The house was well equipped, very clean, nicely decorated, and set in lovely spot in Seacrest. The back porch is by far the nicest feature I have ever experienced in a rental home. So relaxing. Loved the ice maker as well. We look forward to returning here next summer!

Awesome House - Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

My family has been using VRBO for at least 10 years - and this is my first review. For the first time, the house was actually much nicer than the pictures and description.

The outside living area (covered porch) is unlike any I have ever encountered in a vacation rental. We used it twice a day - morning coffee and in the evening, in the fall or spring - I could see spending all your time at the house out there.

The house was very clean and well maintained, and the AC was excellent! Many times when we rent a beach house the AC can struggle to keep the house at good indoor temp, but I assume because of the home's first of a kind construction, it was always nice and chilly inside (which is no small thing!). There is also and ice maker which is not listed on VRBO, but supplied enough ice for us for a week of packing a cooler everyday to take to the beach, a very nice surprise.

The setting is very nice - there is nothing behind the house - totally private! Even one of the side neighbors is a good distance away. The pool was a very easy walk - we didn't time it but, its only a minute or two around the corner. Its also an easy walk to Seacrest Beach Circle, and Rosemary (and even Aly's if your up to it). And if you have bikes all those trips are very easy. If you are looking for a good home base on 30A that enables you to do a little of everything this is the place.

We have been around the Carolina beaches, and several 30A beaches, Seacrest if the place for our family. Its ideal for two families, and if we every head south with another family again, we will be staying at Fort Sunshine.

Great Place

Great place to stay!!! The rooms are very comfortable and the covered back porch is just wonderful. The location of the house within Seacrest is great for kids. My family just want to return to this house and create memories in years to come.
