About Mary O'Brien - Keen LLC

I grew up the daughter of a U.S. Naval submarine officer and always lived near the water but certainly not on the water. The ocean and rivers have always been a big influence in my life and when the unique opportunity arose to purchase this lovely home on the Gulf, I jumped at the chance to own a bit a heaven for myself, my family and friends, and those with whom I have the privilege of sharing it via VRBO.

Mary O'Brien - Keen LLC purchased this house in 2013

Why Mary O'Brien - Keen LLC chose Seacrest Beach

I started visiting the 30a area of Florida five years before I even considered a purchase. I loved the idea that the 30a area was just 4.5 hours from where I lived, I could easily make the drive for one night or weeks at a time depending upon my schedule and could pack whatever I needed in the car vs. limiting it to a suitcase! The proximilty of this home to the shops and restaurants of Rosemary, Seacrest and Aly's Beach made it ideal due to the fact you could arrive and never have to get back in the car again if desired. Every amenity and delicious food was just an easy walk or bike ride from the neighborhood. The gated entrance and private beach walkover added greater security and comfort for me as well. The convenience of the Sea Oats Beach Service (chairs, umbrellas, water sports) is much appreciated too.

What makes this house unique

The 30a area offers so much to a traveler and a resident but what makes this private home so unique and beneficial starts with the incredible views of the full expanse of the white sands of this beautiful beach including gorgeous sunsets on the two Gulf front porches. But the benefits only start with the view. As we all know, LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION is the mantra of real estate and this home has the best location possible:

Gulf Front

Directly (west) adjacent to Rosemary Beach

Set forward (closer to the beach) than all of the Rosemary Beach homes lending an incredible panoramic view of the beach and sunset

Walking distance to shops and restaurant of Rosemary, Seacrest & Aly's Beach

Seaside and Watercolor beach resorts are just 7 miles away

Outdoor poolside cooking with a gas grill and Big Green Egg

Use of the home's sea kayak & beach toys

Avoid the seasonal traffic of 30a due to eastern access to SR98

Close to international airport (25 minutes) and I-10 (1 hour)

I can’t say enough about how nice our stay was. The closest you can be on the best beach while having so much privacy. Can’t wait to go back!!

Amazing View!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at this lovely home right on the water. The house is clean and the owner, Mary, is very responsive to questions. The view is unbelievable, it's like you are in the water! You can sit on the couch and the Gulf goes on forever. As promised, we did see the dolphins swimming by a couple of times. It is really close to the shops and restaurants at Rosemary Beach and Seacrest. We hated to leave.

Great location, great view

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this house. Location is great - next door to Rosemary, but without the Rosemary crowds on the beach. Owner was very good to deal with. We stay in this area multiple times per year and I highly recommend this location.

Perfect Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome house with the best view on 30A!!! Sunsets, quiet time, breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner were all perfect on this porch overlooking the beach and gulf! We have stayed in the Rosemary area for the past 7-8 years and this was our favorite by far!! The owner and property manager were so helpful and prompt with any questions or concerns. The pool was perfect for a dip after coming in from the beach. The kitchen was stocked with everything we could possibly need. We love this neighborhood because it is private and gated and within walking distance to restaurants, shops, walking trails, playgrounds and splash pads. You can park your car and not get back in it if you like until you have to leave. Leaving this beautiful place was the only negative!!

Great house with awesome views

  • 4 of 5

Great house - great location - views from the upstairs porch were amazing. Only negatives were all the major construction on the house behind this one. Workers on all 3 of their balconies kept us from enjoying the pool all week and blocked us in the driveway. A. Minor inconvenience - we came for the beach and it was beautiful our entire week here 😊
