We will do all we can to help you have your best vacation ever here on our gorgeous PRIVATE BEACH (i.e. NO PUBLIC ACCESS - and NO CROWDS, which is hard to find these days).

"Away From It All" is a private oasis nestled among multimillion dollar homes in a private gated neighborhood on a point of land between the beach and Camp Creek Lake. We are on the western-most tip of Seacrest Beach right before you cross over the small bridge on Camp Creek Lake! Our beach is private – so NO PUBLIC ACCESS. There is a dune preservation area west of us that cannot ever be developed. This means no crowds, and you may find you often have the beach to yourself. Where else can you find that??

At "Away From It All", you'll be able to relax, be on the beach within about a minute, and enjoy privacy like you won't find anywhere else. No crowds. Period. If you want privacy, nature, relaxation or a chance to renew your most important relationships - you've just found the place!!

"Away From It All" is in Seacrest Beach - a quiet, sleepy little township located between Seaside and the architectural stylings of Alys and Rosemary Beach.

You and your loved ones will adore this out-of-the-way location instantly!

"Away From It All" was recently redecorated and upgraded with new kitchen, flooring, furnishings and more. We have a "country coastal" beach motif, with warm colors that help you relax and feel at home … because 7 Palms is a destination for relaxing. No crazy crowds. No traffic noise. No loud bars or chaos. You'll hear the sound of the birds every morning and the surf every night … oh, and views that’ll warm your heart (especially the stars at night).

A little about our townhome:

The carport is downstairs, then walk up into the townhome.

On the first (main level) - Queen Sleeper Sofa with guest half bath,

Walk up to the next level where the King Master Bedroom with Private Balcony (good for enjoying coffee every morning!) - the top floor also has a Guest Bedroom with a King bed and its own guest bath.

The private beach and private boardwalk are right out back next to our park-like back yard with benches, grills and an outdoor shower. The private boardwalk (no public access) allows you to enjoy a beach without crowds! Our beaches are called "sugar sand" for a reason. They are so clean and white that they are on par with the best beaches in the Bahamas - or anywhere in the world for that matter. Most days our waters are crystal clear. They transition to blue with 2 emerald green bands of color (from the sand bars) in between. That's why our area is called the Emerald Coast.

You can use credit cards with the online BookIt payment feature on this website. Note that online payments have a fee paid to VRBO for using their system. This fee is paid to VRBO and is not a fee charged by us. We encourage you to contact VRBO about this fee.

Great location and value

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week. The townhouse's location was 50 yards from the beach and although it is not as new as many places, "Away from it All" was a perfect choice for us and a great value. The kitchen was well stocked, the sheets were soft, and they even had chairs, umbrellas and beach toys to use. The morning we left it was raining, so I also appreciated having covered parking.

Very convenient location, loved the private beach,

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time, great location. The atmosphere was somewhat lessened by quite a bit of construction in the neighborhood.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. You're right, 7 Palms IS in a GREAT location, and we are so glad you had such a good time. We are lucky to be tucked in between the Gulf of Mexico and Camp Creek Lake, surrounded more by nature than anything else. The construction to which you refer is going on all up and down 30A, but the good news for 7 Palms is that it doesn't affect our PRIVATE BEACH, and quite soon the construction will be mostly done in our private gated neighborhood. We are told that most of it will be winding down before our summer season.

Great location, private beach, 20 seconds to the sand

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at "away from it all." It is literally a 20 second walk down a very nice boardwalk to be at the beach. Marilyn was great...answered all of our questions and checked in on us a few times during out stay. The townhome was very well stocked as well. Hope to return

Great week away at "Away from it All"

  • 5 of 5

"Away from it All" is a very well stocked condo with everything needed to enjoy a lovely week at the beach. The umbrella and chairs provided were very nice, and the boardwalk is private and such a short walk! The beach was practically empty it is so private. There was a lot of construction going on in the neighborhood which made for loud mornings on some days, but it was not too bothersome. I hope that the views are not obstructed in the future! The condo is in a very nice, gated neighborhood. We enjoyed bike rides to neighboring towns like Seaside, Alys Beach, the Hub and Rosemary Beach. Marilyn, our contact for our stay, was very pleasant and responsive and the checkin and checkout processes were very easy. We are very pleased with our stay and would absolutely consider staying here again!

Beautiful and most peaceful stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best stocked condo/townhome we've ever stayed at in Florida- They thought of every Need! Marilyn even brought by a beach umbrella while we were there because someone forgot to return the one from the condo. Clean, cozy- private. But not too far anything! We will be back!

Clean, Roomy, well-equipped

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two children really enjoyed our stay here. The property was very clean and had everything we needed to have a great stay. The kitchen was well equipped with everything that you need for cooking. Having the beach towels and beach chairs and toys provided was really nice.
