About Mike

Thank you for staying with us! Your vacation is important to my wife and I, you had options and chose to entrust us with your vacation plans.

Our company is Playon30a- we are a family run business with only a couple of units in the Villages at Seacrest complex. Playon30a was founded in 2015 by Michael and Andrea McKenzie of Dawsonville, GA. While our entry into the rental business on 30a is relatively new our family has been coming to this area since the late 90's. The complex you are staying in was built in 2005 and my widowed mother purchased a bed and breakfast unit like the one you are staying in pre-construction. For several years she managed renting of the unit by herself and had great success providing quality lodging at an affordable price nestled in what I would call the most beautiful place on the planet. In May 2006 my wife and I were married on the shores of Rosemary beach with a reception following at the town hall. In 2015 we followed my mothers footsteps and invested in 2 rental properties at the Villages.

Through the years we have watched this small beach community grow but manage to keep its small beach town charm. The facility you are staying at is one of the few brick constructed buildings in the area. At the front of the complex is a pavilion with several small businesses in the cabana's and live acoustic music on occasion. In the back and to the left is Seacreast. To the right of the property is Rosemary and across 30a with the blue tin roof is High Pointe.

Whether you walk, bike or drive 30a you will find many attractions in the area. Helen State Park, Inlet beach, Rosemary's cobblestone street, the sugary white sand, emerald water, Southern hospitality - you are unlikely to find the kind of peace this area offers any where else in the Caribbean. So kick off your shoes, enjoy a cold beverage and Play on 30a!

Mike purchased this condo in 2016

Nice Small Room for Two

  • 5 of 5

Very good location, just a short walk to the beach. You can not see the beach from the room, but if you don't mind staying across the street and walking this room is perfect for two people.

No frills, place to sleep.

  • 3 of 5

Basically paid a couple hundred dollars/night for a scenic view of the parking lot and dumpster. Room was clean but nothing fancy.

Owner's Response: Hi Brandon, Thanks for the feedback! The content of these reviews are helpful in improving the stay of future guests! If you were charged 'a couple of hundred dollars a night' for 1 night stay with us please contact me ASAP so I can personally take care of this as the booking system is not showing a figure that high was charged to you even with fees included- you are welcome to call my personal cell phone that’s in the welcome email sent to you at booking. In regards to the view- If you were standing on the community balcony just outside the window that faces toward the colorful homes of Seacrest beach and saw a dumpster sitting down in the parking lot please let me know the date and time so I may contact the HOA as I was in the room a few days ago doing maintenance and did not see this. Thanks! Mike

Car: recommended


shades on the loop - this is bar food but they have really good chicken wings and a great selection of beer

Cuvee- they have great appetizers if you get there early with early bird prices and a really great selection on the menu however this place is a little pricey

Tapas Restaurant next to Rosemary town hall- they have a great selection of small dishes. Lamb is great and so is the fondue

The Pearl - A very expensive hotel with some nightlife poolside in the evening. They also have the haVanna restaurant which serves Cuban food and is usually consistent on quality

The donut hole- really great breakfast and will typically have the line out the door but my experience is they move that line very quickly so worth the wait

acme oyster house over in Sandestin – reasonably priced and they have oysters that are chargrilled and quite delicious

The red bar in Grayton Beach- variety of food from oysters to steak to hamburgers. The weight is usually long to get in but the ambience is quite unique and would be like a bar

The pool- where you will be staying. We have a brand-new pool that is being constructed now. It is expected to be ready in August 2016.

Accessing the beach- if you walk past the villages towards Alice beach you will see a large beach chair on the right with a sign that says Seacrest Beach. Directly across from that is the entrance for the beach. There is a gate there however if you let the guard know you were staying at the villages by showing your yellow wrist band they should let you continue by foot to the beach walk over. The better option is to use the tram which is a golf cart that will carry you over there and drop you off right at the beach entrance

chair rental – you can rent chairs on the beach with an umbrella and this is ideal if you don't want to lug your beach chairs down with you. However Rentals can be expensive I have seen them at $50 per day and $30 for half a day. When you walk down the stairs to the beach The rental guys will be on your right usually

cooler – if you are going to take beverages to the beach I highly recommend either a rolling cooler or a shoulder carry cooler that you can put ice in along with a couple of snacks. there is no ice machine at the condo but you can purchase ice from the sundries shop in the villages if it is open

inlet beach public beach access- this is a hidden jewel that is in the inlet beach community right next to Rosemary if time permits I recommend driving your vehicle over there parking and walking along the beach down towards

Helen state park- this area was a real joy to walk around and sightsee yet. If you like history and want to see where lake Powell meets the ocean I recommend it. prices were six dollars per day per vehicle earlier this year

Bike Rentals- in front of the villages where your condo is there are several bikes for rent. These are great to get around on however parking can sometimes be a challenge if you go over to Rosemary or to the beach access.
