On 30A! Outdoor "living room balcony," jacuzzi ... Walk to Rosemary & Alys!

Bedrooms 1
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

Ultra-comfortable Studio/1br, Large Bath, Travertine floors & Full-size Fridge!

Welcome to this recently remodeled unit at the popular INN AT SEACREST BEACH! You will be in a corner unit, on building's preferred west side; your balcony overlooks the pool area, with relaxing Gulf water views straight across Highway 30A. Only the corner units offer an oversized 90-degree wrap-around balcony! It's been called an "outdoor living room" by guests. All interior units in the building have a balcony ledge, boxed in.

Your covered balcony features 3 different seating areas. You can enjoy reading, hot morning coffee, wine at happy hour, or enjoying dinner during a showstopper sunset over Alys Beach!

Exceptionally comfortable, this is an owner-maintained unit. It has great attention to detail, fresh special linens, and some extras not customary on 30A --- including early check-in about 2PM and/or late check-out whenever available (90% of the time). Also, there's no key or "meet-up" to worry about! Our door has a secure app-controlled keypad code. You will receive a personalized PIN code that changes for each guest. Enjoy your stress-free arrival and departure, on your own timetable.

This is the only one of 3 *corner units* in the entire building available for rent, and the only one overlooking the pool vs. parking lots.

Walk or bike to the best that "Highway 30A" has to offer! This popular east end of 30A is more bicycle and pedestrian-friendly with multiple crosswalk signal lights, and oversized bike paths. You can leave your car until you're departing. This is a nice 10-minute walk to Rosemary Beach, and a 3-minute walk over to Alys Beach.


---Full-size refrigerator with icemaker.

---Upscale, light-colored travertine floors (not dark tile as in all other units).

---Large, comfy microsuede couch. (Not a pull-out but can easily accommodate a child, or for napping.)

---Closet stocked with hangars, iron, board, blanket, etc.

---Wall-mounted flat-screen TV.

---Granite kitchen countertop. Custom stone backsplash. Toaster oven, microwave, wine glasses, cooking plate and pots, blender, the works.

---USB plugs in electrical outlets. Conveniently at kitchen counter, to charge your many devices.

---Clean, open bathroom with oversized counter space, large drawers, and hotel-style "U"-shaped curtain rod.

With our compliments, the first day's coffee and hot tea is set-up to get you going! We have "sleeps 4" because we have hosted families traveling with two toddlers or a teenager --- some of our best reviews! We will leave an extra sheet set for the couch if needed, and there is plenty of room next to the couch to set up a Pac-n-Play.

Sleeping in? Need a nap after the beach? You will enjoy extra windows (found only on corner condo units) for both natural light and lazy-day cross breezes. Just lock together heavy sailcloth curtains, to sleep in past sunrise --- or take a power nap in the quiet, cool dark! Relax and recharge on a pillowtop mattress, fresh upscale linens, and upholstered headboard.


The Inn at Seacrest Beach is four floors high. It is far more compact than all nearby condo properties, allowing for more privacy and less foot traffic that's common in nearby neighborhoods. No sunrise morning commotion of food deliveries to retail venues! Plenty of off-street parking. Two large bike storage areas, with awning covers. Seacrest Beach is nestled between Alys Beach and Rosemary Beach, two of most gorgeous enclaves on 30A to explore. If you're not staying somewhere fronting 30A, you're missing out!

This is also one of the very few properties in all 22 miles of 30A that has both a pool and hot tub/Jacuzzi. The Jacuzzi is heated all year long! (Yes, some properties do not heat their Jacuzzi in "off-season.") This is the only portion of high-rent eastern 30A with buried electrical lines = far better balcony views with no wires dangling in your pictures. Trust us, we know of such things.


---The unit is professionally cleaned after each stay, and the linens and towel sets are solely for this unit. Your linens are not "beat up," and they are not circulating among multiple rental properties under a property management service.

---There is not currently WiFi in the unit --- one less expense to pass on to guests while keeping rates low and value high! So bring your hotspot. There are plenty of restaurants and venues that have free WiFi in walking distance, too.

---Look over the Reviews. Make sure a lot of travelers recommend the property you want to book not just a handful of "friends and family" posting love notes.

---All quotes include 11% for state sales tax and this county's tourism tax. We follow the law. DON'T RISK your reservation with someone not charging taxes, or not charging the legal 11% total... We've seen some very unfortunate situations.

Send us an inquiry with your dates for a fast, detailed quote! Or, use the "Book It Now" function to lock in dates, and we'll confirm your reservation promptly.

About Kelly Anne

After spending 15 years traveling to '30A' for R&R --- and renting all kinds of places (some great, some not-so-great) --- I decided to buy. I was raised on the water in South Florida. As much as I love that area, there are no better beaches in America than South Walton County's along 30A. It's that simple. And they treat them right.

Kelly Anne purchased this condo in 2014

Why Kelly Anne chose Beaches of South Walton

The Inn at Seacrest Beach building is the best spot on 30A for newcomers and veteran travelers alike. It's not fussy -- it's both private and straight-forward. With more than 20 enclaves/communities to choose from over 15+ miles, it's the best value for the money, no question. But it is also the quietest, being away from the hubbub that starts very early and goes very late in many other enclaves that have a lot of businesses and rentals with a big footprint, deliveries coming and going at all hours, etc.

What makes this condo unique

I stocked this condo the way I would want to live in it if I had to.... !!! Nice white porcelain china, stemless wine glasses, and we set up a coffee/hot tea and condiments pack to get you through your first morning! Bathroom is stocked like a hotel's would be. The wrap-around balcony makes for stunning sunset-watching (if you're not front and center on the beach!)

On 30A! Outdoor "living room balcony," jacuzzi ... Walk to Rosemary & Alys!
average rating of 4.859375 based on 64 reviews

Perfect location, cozy room!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for a relaxing getaway to beautiful 30A - it's a short walk to fabulous restaurants and fun activities in Rosemary Beach and Alys Beach, and a short walk to the private beach. We biked all over this beautiful area - very scenic, including the dune lakes west of here. This condo is in a quiet location and it has a nice kitchen that allows you to prepare small meals and enjoy on the beautiful balcony - it's exactly as Kelly describes! Kelly is very accessible and helpful during your stay - we'll be back!

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

It was a picture perfect getaway in every sense: 1) Kelly was always available and very communicative at every point; 2) the unit and pool was wonderful for a couple escaping for a couple of days; and 3) access to the beach and walking distance to Rosemary and Alys beaches could be beat! We would give it our highest recommendation!

Close to Beach/Condo Has Everything Needed

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our trip to 30-A despite being there during Tropical Storm Cindy. This location is an easy walk to the beach and restaurants of Rosemary. George's is right next door, and we loved the salt and pepper shrimp. Seaside is an 8 mile bike ride. We will be back! Only complaint: Wear bug spray outside and on balcony at night. First night I got 15 mosquito bites sipping wine on the balcony. Maybe it was because of all the moisture from the storm. Overall fun trip!

Perfect for Alys Beach weddings

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful unit - so cute, clean and very walkable to Rosemary Beach and Alys Beach. Kelly Anne was also very accommodating and helpful with ideas of things to do that only locals may know about. She even offered us a late checkout since our flight was delayed and we didn't arrive until 3AM. We came to 30A for a wedding a Alys Beach and we were able to walk to and from the wedding easily. Perfect location for a couple's quiet getaway.

Owner's Response: Wonderful couple to host! Love to provide some extra check out time when possible, especially for extra-weary travelers ;-) to be able to pull off and create more vacation memories!

Nestled right between Rosemary Beach and Alys Beach, Seacrest Beach is by far the more affordable option and conveniently located to everything --- walk or bike to anything!
