Great Location, Private Beach and Just Delightful

  • 5 of 5

What a joy working with Tom and Carla. Our menu included using a crock-pot; however, upon arrival there was none to be found. We asked Debbie, the Unit Manager if she had on and she promptly purchased one for our use. This was totally unexpected and we certainly didn't what anyone to do that, she went the extra mile to make our stay even better. Future families will certainly benefit from this nice perk. Be sure to include this on the "List of Amenities". As far as the unit is was absolutely perfect for our family. There is nothing I could suggest to improve the property. This was a second stay at Walton Dunes and our first at "Sea Shell on the Beach", but certainly not our last. We hope to return next year.

Perfect Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful trip to Seagrove Beach and enjoyed staying at Walton Dunes. The home is lovely and well-appointed. Everything was clean, tidy, and well-organized. We are a family of four and there was plenty of room. We've stayed in other properties in the same development and were given a long list of what we could/should do and not do, which added a bit of stress to the vacation. I communicated with the owners and my instructions were to "enjoy the beach" and "close the door behind you" upon our departure. How refreshing! It was so nice to feel that our vacation time was valued by the owners and we didn't have to spend time preparing the home for the cleaning crew and the next family's arrival! We will definitely be repeat visitors! Seagrove Beach has long been our family's favorite vacation spot and this home was the "icing on the cake" to a great trip.

As always, this year's stay at A Sea Shell on the Beach was just lovely. Thanks again to the wonderful unit owners for going to great lengths to make sure everything was absolutely perfect. I could not say one thing negative about this property or the owners. They know exactly what tenants need and enjoy and are always improving on the unit. Thanks so much!

WD 5 Is A Winner

  • 5 of 5

Great condo in a great location. We had a wonderful week at the beach and would love the opportunity to return for another visit to this property. It has all the amenities you need and then some. Grandsons loved the bunk beds. We especially loved the very close and easy beach access, no overland hauling of your beach gear here. Views of the beach are great, especially the one from off the master bedroom. I highly recommend this as your Seagrove destination.

Excellent beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

For our family of five, this was our 2nd stay at this property in two years. We were just as pleased the second time around. The property has new kitchen and bath renovations since our last stay. The villa has plenty of room for 2 adults and 3 kids. The location could not be better. The villa has excellent views of the sea from both sliding doors. Access to the beach is just a few steps across the dunes crosswalk and you're on the pristine beach. The property has private beach access and is right next to a state park, so the beach is never too crowded and the state park has a large coastal lake with easy access that's great for paddle boarding or kayaking when the sea is too choppy.

The overall location of this property is excellent. Very quite area and many large homes, but no large hotels; which is a good thing. Just 15 minutes to Seaside and Watercolor when traffic is light. Seaside and Watercolor are worth the visit, but traffic can be bad. There are also a few excellent restaurants in Seagrove only a few minutes from the villa. Definitely check out Cafe 30-A for an upscale, yet still beach casual dinner spot. A bit pricey, but worth it. You'll have to make a reservation in advance of your arrival because they book up fast.

Also, since this is VRBO, the ownership is important. The owners, Tom and Carla Schell are excellent to work with. During our stay, the villa units were having a new roof installed (which look great, BTW) and it was a bit of an inconvenience for us. The Schells reached out to us and offered us a local restaurant voucher for the inconvenience. The on-site manager, Debbie was also very helpful to make sure the villa had everything we needed.

Bottom line is that if you're looking for a less-busy vacation spot and a superior villa with excellent beach access, you can't go wrong with this property!
