Great location walking distance to the beach

  • 4 of 5

Loved the house, we shared with another family. The kids loved the crow's nest on the 3rd floor. For beach its great, we did have to drive 15 minutes to Seaside for kids activities and 30 mins to Rosemary beach. The beach was not very crowded until our final day and I highly recommend using the beach chair service vs carrying stuff.

Great location near beach

  • 4 of 5

we rented this house last week with another family and really enjoyed the close proximity to the beach (1/2 block walk) to private beach access. If you are primarily using it to spend time at the beach, its great. It was a 15 min drive in traffic to seaside and rosemary beach where a lot of kid activities and restaurants are. Overall, nice house, kids loved the crow's nest on the top floor!

Owner's Response: We appreciate you sharing your vacation experience at Crow's Nest in Blue Mountain along Scenic HW 30-A. Like you, our Guests have really enjoyed the easy access to the community pool and private beach. There are restaurants and pubs within walking and biking distance and they enjoy being a little away from the activity of Seaside. It is a quieter and maybe more laidback. We are very happy to hear that your family enjoyed your stay. Thanks for choosing Sunburst Beach Vacations as your management company for your stay on Scenic 30-A.

Wonderful week on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time at the Crow's Nest. The property exceeded our expectations. We loved the layout. I have to say the shower in the utility room and the access to the utility from outside, made it so easy to get kids in and out without making a mess. The access to the beach was so easy, and since it is a private access, there seemed to be less people than at the public access points. We felt like we were in our own paradise.

An off-road paved path parallels all 18.6 miles of Scenic HW 30-A and runs along the emerald green and blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. This path winds thru nine distinctive beach communities, state parks, forests, dunes and coastal dune lakes. The paved trail is ideal for biking, hiking, jogging and rollerblading.

As well, approximately 60% of our area is dedicated to preservation. Hikers, bicyclists and nature lovers can enjoy over 200 miles of networking trails that interlace thru state parks and forests that stretch from the Gulf of Mexico to the Choctawhatchee Bay.
