                                                          Lovely, comfortable house, easy walk anywhere

                                                          August SAtlanta, Georgia

                                                          We have stayed in the Magnolia community no less than 8 times. This house was one of our favorites due to location, overall setting and amenities. House is 100% stocked with everything you could want to relax, cook, enjoy outdoor activities, etc. We loved riding the two adult cruisers. If you are on 30A on Sunday - take the 10 minute ride down to Rosemary town center and enjoy their Sunday open air market. We brought delicious home-baked goods back for the whole house to enjoy. Magnolia is a very quiet, family friendly community. House situated on the corner almost directly across from the pool. Easy 5-min walk to beach walk over.

                                                          Small tweaks that would make this total 5-star: fix ice maker; have a few more blankets/throws available; strengthen Wi-Fi as that was a consistent issue; and invest in bath mats, small rugs in common areas so that sand, etc. doesn't get tracked everywhere. VERY small nits to what was an otherwise awesome stay. Thank you again.

                                                          Wonderful vacation home!

                                                          Paul P.

                                                          The owners are always updating. Best vacations we’ve ever had have been here. We keep coming back to Memory Lane every year!

                                                          Wonderful Beach House - 1 minute walk to the pool , 4 min. walk to beach, 10 minute drive to grocery

                                                          Kellen M.

                                                          Memory Lane is the perfect house in the perfect SoWal location. The pool is amazing and a 30 second sprint/ 1 minute walk from the front door. The beach is a 4 minute walk and has access to one of the most beautiful beaches in Seacrest/South Walton County. Conveniently located between two Publix grocery stores and all of the best restaurants and retail along 30A in South Walton. Most importantly, the property management team lead by Jane and Jim Allen were fantastic and so helpful. They answered every call/text email within minutes when we had questions about anything & everything. We would definitely stay at Memory Lane again in the future and if this home isn't available - find a home managed by Jane and Jim Allen!

                                                          Thank you so much! We always want your vacation to be the best ever with a nice home and good customer service!

                                                          PS - Our last name is Buckle :)) We love the fact that you let everyone know that we are here for them when they stay in one of the properties we manage! Memory Lane is a special one and everyone loves it!

                                                          A Beautiful Beach Getaway!

                                                          Julie V.

                                                          We had a wonderful stay at Memory Lane! The house was modern, clean, comfy and so beautiful! It was the perfect size for our group of 6 (2 small kids, 2 grandparents and my husband and I.) You could fit more guests if needed but this gave us plenty of our own space. The beds were so comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed for cooking meals and the linens provided were so nice. Our kids loved the community pool right across the street and the beach was gorgeous and just a short walk. We had a few days of rain during our stay but really enjoyed family time in the house watching movies, playing games, puzzles and sipping coffee on the covered porch while listening to the rain. It was the absolute perfect getaway for us! We will definitely come back to Memory Lane!

                                                          Quality Family Time

                                                          Had a great time at Memory Lane. We loved the screened in porch and living space. The beds were great. Being so close to the pool was perfect! Would stay there again! Beach just a 3 minute walk and gorgeous!

                                                          The perfect peaceful escape!

                                                          We chose Magnolia Cottages by the Sea because they are a safe family friendly community that is a short walk to the beach and pool but very affordable. It's also right in between Rosemary and Alys beach and Seaside! It doesn't get much better unless you want to spend your life savings ;-p Memory Lane cottage is very comfortable, soft couches and mattresses. Nice linens and towels!! We didn't need to bring anything with us except clothes! Fully stocked in every room. It's very private even though it's in a community. We rose bikes to Rosemary Beach and it was the perfect distance, even for our 8 year old who rode his own bike. Highly recommend staying here! We looked at others in this neighborhood and I this is the prettiest one :) bright, clean and cheerful!
