60 Seacrest Beach Blvd East, Seacrest Beach, FL 32413

Seacrest Beach, Florida, located along Scenic Highway 30A, is known to be one of the quietest and most tranquil beach communities in the area. Seacrest features some of the highest sand dunes along the Emerald Coast, as well as access to Rosemary Beach and Alys Beach for shopping and dining. With virtually no commercial businesses in the community, ocean activities like fishing, kayaking, swimming, and beach going, along with golf, are the main focus of a vacation to Seacrest Beach. If you're looking for a relaxing and classic Florida beach vacation, a Seacrest Beach rental is the perfect fit.

It is truly 'A Wonderful Life' at this beautiful Seacrest Beach Resort. Experience a vacation of a lifetime; one you and your family will never forget. Get away from the crowds and traffic of Destin and the hi-rises of Panama City Beach and enjoy your vacation in this exclusive private community. Take a leisurely stroll to the Village of South Walton and the neighboring community of Rosemary Beach to enjoy some of the area's finest dining and shopping venues.

Under new ownership, the home has been freshly painted and updated, including redecoration throughout the first floor, and brand new living room furniture and kitchen appliances!

This charming home has a third story loft with 2 bunks (4 twins), as well as three bedrooms; sleeping twelve!! Incredible sunrise and sunset views of the gulf and the community-only 12,000 square-foot swimming pool from the third floor sunning decks. The first floor room has a full bed and separate bathroom. The king master has a private bath with a rainfall shower head and separate spa tub. The private balcony looks out into the community. The queen bedroom also includes a twin bed with trundle, private bath, and private balcony with a community view. The third floor bunk room has two huge sunning decks, one on each side! On one side you get panoramic views of the community and Gulf, and on the other, the panoramic view includes the community and lagoon pool. Each bedroom is beautifully decorated with its own TV and VCR/DVD player. We also have password-protected hi-speed WiFi internet. The living area features hardwood floors with modern decor. The kitchen and dining area, open to the living room, seats nine for mealtimes.

Our home is directly across the street from the beautifully landscaped 12,000 square-foot swimming pool (only a 20-second walk). This pool has fountains, waterfalls and two bath houses. The gulf is a short three-minute stroll through the palm-lined path or just let the neighborhood beach shuttle carry you and your beach equipment. Just a few minutes' stroll from the newly-constructed Shoppes at the Village (cafe, dining and shopping) or a few minutes' drive to area grocery stores and restaurants. With an enjoyable stroll to the shoppes and dining at Rosemary and Alys Beach, there is always something nearby to do. Of course, golfers have access to Santa Rosa Beach & Golf Club, courtesy of 30A Cottages, and in a 30 minute drive either to Destin or Panama City you will find no shortage of beautiful golf courses from which to choose.

**For the comfort and enjoyment of ALL guests, Smoking and Pets are NOT allowed at It's A Wonderful Life.

Fantastic home in a wonderful community! Will rent again for our family vacation next year!

  • 5 of 5

It's a Wonderful Life was a great home in Seacrest Beach off of 30A that accommodated our family perfectly. The Seacrest Beach community is amazing. Our family had a great time at the pool which is huge! The layout, parking, kitchen and community were amazing. The golf cart service which took us to the beach worked out really well also. We were within walking distance of at least a dozen great meal spots, Rosemary Beach and only 3 miles from the HUB which makes for a great family fun evening of fun. It's a Wonderful Life is a great home with tons of add ons and value. I will rent this house again next year!

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable and nicely decorated home. The house had plenty of room for two families with 4 adults and 3 children. The location was extremely convenient and accessible. The Concierge service was outstanding as well! I would highly recommend this home!

Poor experience

  • 1 of 5

We were woken every morning at 6:00am by construction workers working on the house next door. Loud hammering and saws were every morning. The chair on the front porch was broken and management said that they would replace it and it did not happen. Management should have let us known before booking and spending so much money on a place that a house next door was under construction. They told us that they had no way of knowing about a house next door, how is that when they should be checking on the property before and after people arrive and check out. A very awful experience that was suppose to be a relaxing vacation. Not one morning in a weeks stay could we sleep past 7am!!!

Owner's Response: The home next door is in the final stage of construction and finalizing painting. We immediately reached out to the HOA and had security drive by every morning to check on the start time. The community allows work to begin at 7 am and security confirmed that the workers did adhere to that time. We ordered a new front porch chair right away to replace the broken one; however it did not come in during your week long stay. 30A is one of the most active areas in the country regarding real estate so there is always a remodel or new construction under way in the communities here. We work very diligently with the various HOA’s to ensure our guests are not affected unnecessarily. This is an amazing home across from the best resort pool on 30A and we are extremely upset that you were awoken each morning at 7 am. Hopefully the fantastic home, gorgeous beaches and weather helped to make up for this during your trip!

This home is PERFECT!! There were 2 families and in-laws in our group and there was room to spare! Many times places are either geared toward the kids or the adults (very rarely both), but this was the perfect place for all of us! This home is so fun with an awesome layout and updates throughout. We love this area and this home is in a fantastic location! Everything is within walking distance (food, shops) and the bike riding path for the kids was great! The pool is incredible and mere steps from the house. The shuttle service was wonderful! We will definitely be back!
