About Dan Norem

My wife and I live in Franklin, TN. We have been married now for 7 years and have 7 children between us, ranging from 20 to 31 yrs old. We are passionate about running, cycling and playing tennis. We spend time in the 30A area every chance we get!

Dan Norem purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Dan Norem chose Seacrest Beach

We had a lovely condo in the Panama City Beach area, but found ourselves spending the majority of our time in the 30A area running and taking bike rides along the miles of paths running from Rosemary Beach to Destin. We eventually decided this is the area we needed to be in and started looking for the perfect beach house. After over two years of looking, we finally found this great little cottage in the Seacrest area. We love this cottage because it is in a perfect location, between Rosemary Beach and Seaside. It's in a great little beach neighborhood right off 30A and only 3 minutes to the beach, steps from the pool, and right on the bike path. It represents everything we were looking for in the perfect beach vacation!

What makes this cottage unique

Family friendly home with an open floor-plan. Large screened-in porch is a wonderful bonus! The cottage is close to pool and only steps to the beach!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Lazy Magnolia. Everything was well maintained and clean, and the decor was very coastal and calming. The house was well stocked with all kitchen items that you could need. Beach and pool were both short walks. We brought a wagon bc we had small children and that helped us with hauling our children and beach gear. The steps down to the beach are steep which makes it difficult with the wagon but it makes it all worth it when you're sitting on the beach enjoying the beautiful views. Magnolia cottages are nestled in the heart of many great places to ride bikes or walk to, including Rosemary and Alys beach and also a short drive to Seaside. Overall great location.

Girls weekend trip

  • 5 of 5

Me and a friend recently stayed at Lazy Magnolia and had an amazing stay! The cottage is in the perfect location, nestled back away from traffic but just across the street from the beach access. We rode the bikes supplied and also used the beach chairs and umbrella. We drove in to Seaside a couple times and rode the bikes to breakfast just down at Rosemary Beach. The cottage is a beautiful decor and was much more than we needed (our third person had to cancel). My friend and I are already planning a fall trip and we certainly plan to stay at Lazy Magnolia once again.

Delightful place!

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved our visit to Lazy Magnolia! It has been by far our favorite place we've stayed at 30A. It was beautifully decorated and felt so cozy. The layout was perfect for our family and we all had plenty of room. The cottage was very clean and well kept. The location was convenient to everywhere we wanted to go and it was easy access to the beach across the street. We will definitely want to come back next year!
