About the property

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Baths On The Pond In Cassine Village

Comfy, coastal chic at its best awaits you right in the heart of Cassine Village, a tranquil, family- friendly neighborhood in Seagrove Beach. Idyll Pond Cottage is a custom built 3 bedroom home where the beauty of nature surrounds you. Once inside, the stunning décor is everywhere, from the open living area that is a perfect gathering spot for family and friends, to the fully equipped gourmet kitchen and cozy dining nook, it all makes for the ideal vacation setting.

The second story accommodates the master suite with private bath and screened in porch (perfect for your morning coffee) along with two guest bedrooms and bath. One guest room has a queen bed while the other has a set of full sized bunk beds plus a single trundle which can be utilized when needed.

You can relax in the swing on the front porch or enjoy the view of the pond from the back screened in porches on both levels. And location, location, location - if it’s the exquisite beaches you desire they are just a short stroll across 30A. Also there are two swimming pools (one right across the lane), along with tennis courts and be sure not to overlook the nature trails on the property which wind their way through magnificent Cypress groves and the adjoining State Forest!

For those fun family outdoor meals there is a gas grill and rustic wooden picnic table overlooking the pond. Also outside there is an enclosed shower (hot and cold) to help make your life easier after a day in the sun.

Come experience all that Idyll Pond has to offer its guests and make your dream vacation come true!

About Cynthia Blackledge

We fell in love instantly with Seagrove and the 30A area a few years ago when on a vacation from Houston. My husband is from London originally and loves the diversity in the area from the stunning beaches to the wooded forest and rare Coastal Dune Lakes. And I cannot agree more!

Cynthia Blackledge purchased this house in 2015

Why Cynthia Blackledge chose Seagrove Beach

When we decided we wanted to own a vacation home in the 30A area we looked from one end of 30A to the other and we kept coming back to Cassine Village. It all spoke to us from the white picket fences to the tall pines to the quiet neighborhood and the perfect location.

What makes this house unique

We had not planned on building a new home but when we saw the wooded lot in Cassine Village with its views of the fountain, the pond and the arched wooden bridge we knew we had found our dream home! We lovingly planned and decorated Idyll Pond and hope you find her as amazing as we do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

After hearing much about the 30A area my husband and I (and another couple) decided to celebrate our wedding anniversary at Idyll Pond Cottage. We could not have picked a better house, everything we needed and wanted and then some!! The location of Cassine Village is right off 30A but yet so quiet and secluded and beautiful. Such a stunning home, light and airy, beautifully decorated, really a slice of heaven. The view of the lake off both screened in porches was one of our favorite places to spend "happy hour" each evening. The master suite has it's own screened in porch that makes having your morning coffee a special treat. There were a few restaurants within walking distance and the beach access is just a stroll across 30A and there are even several wooden benches there to sit and watch the sunset from! The area has so much to see and do we can't wait to come back for more....and for certain we will stay at Idyll Pond Cottage!

Beautiful home near the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on our vacation week trip to Idyll Pond and will definitely look at coming back! The home is great, almost brand new and a perfect layout for us traveling with our 3.5 year old and grandparents. Within an easy 5-10 minute walk of the beach, ice cream shop, bike rentals, pizza place, donut shop, etc. Barely needed to get in the car but an easy ride or drive to Seaside or Rosemary if you want. Neighborhood was very family friendly as well. A great family vacation spot!

This property is phenomenol!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this property. The house is gorgeous. It is beautifully decorated and at the same time extremely comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook several meals at home, and we also used the grill (which came with all the grill utensils we needed). When it rained as we were grilling, there was even a large umbrella on the back porch we could use to finish our dinner. The property is close to everything -- shopping, restaurants, the beach, bike rentals, nature walking trail, and the neighborhood pool. Cynthia Blackledge was extremely responsive, answering emails usually within a few minutes. The name and number of a nearby property manager was also provided, and she was equally responsive. She was willing to come within ten minutes, but we figured out the issue ourselves (GFI needed resetting). The amenities provided (shampoo, soap, hairdryers, paper products, dishwashing liquid, beach towels, beach chairs, etc.) were absolutely amazing. I would highly recommend this property and look forward to returning in the near future. I would definitely re-book this home!

Beautiful home in a quiet neighborhood near the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved everything about this lovely beach home and the quiet, safe neighborhood of similar homes. In addition to the setting in front of Idyll Pond and across the street from the pool, the interior amenities were first class! We were comfortable with the bedrooms and well-appointed kitchen! Our bikes took us to the beach in five minutes!

Thanks to our hosts who were quick to respond to our questions, we enjoyed every minute of beach life in the 30A area. Lots of memories to hold dear! Would love to return to "our" house!

Perfect location! Thank you!

  • 5 of 5

So thankful to stay in such a wonderful home that was in the perfect location. Our family of 5 loved being in the serene location, but also being able to get to the beach quickly. We rode our bikes down to Seaside for dinner one night and although it took about 25 minutes, the kids did great. We also loved having the pool right across the way. The outdoor shower was incredible as well. We cannot wait to come back again! Thank you for opening your home to us!
