About Christy Harris

Musician, filmmaker, artist, investor, surfer who appreciates the art of living.

Why Christy Harris chose Santa Rosa Beach

As a place to raise my daughters during the summers of their childhood and teen years. Now they are young adults and we do not use the home as much. But hosted my oldest daughter's wedding in Seaside in May 2010. I was (and am) very particular when I researched beach properties. Seaside was the only choice. You can bike and walk everywhere and it has this elegantly shabby feel to it.

What makes this House unique

Great stereo system, casual but fine interiors, super comfortable, excellent beds, bathrooms, and cooking accessories. We try and stock the house as if it were your own, with coffee, spices, condiments, sharp knives, cooking accessories, etc.

                                                          Great spacious home in great location

                                                          Cheryl A.

                                                          My family stayed here over Spring Break and it was perfect for us. Location is fantastic. Close to the beach and close to town center but on a quiet peaceful street. Mornings were spent drinking coffee on the porch and enjoying the breezes. The kitchen was the most well stocked I have stayed in before. Teens loved having lots of spaces to retreat. Beds were comfy and plenty of towels available!

                                                          Seaside has restaurants and shops within a short walk and several other places easily reached by bike. We only got back in our car one time in a week!

                                                          Would definitely stay here again!

                                                          Very comfortable.

                                                          Brandice D.

                                                          This is my family’s second time staying in Idewild South and we will be back again. The location is perfect, the house is quite comfortable and not pretentious, and the wrap around porch doubles the living area. The kitchen is extremely well-stocked and there is no shortage of games, beach toys, towels and books.

                                                          Great location!

                                                          Carey G.Dallas, TX

                                                          This is a great house, and perfect location. The loft was great and the porch was so nice, even when it was raining. The dryer did not work. Even though they sent a repair person, he was not able to fix it and so cleaning sheets and towels was a bit of an issue. Overall, we loved our stay and appreciated all of the amenities.

                                                          Thank you so much for the stay and the great review! I am so embarrassed we could not figure out the dryer. It ended up NOT being the dryer, but the vent to the outside, which was clogged ... so we completely replaced. Next time I will make it up to you!!!

                                                          We loved the house and location in Seaside. This house has tons of charm and character.

                                                          Very nice furnishings and bedding linens so luxurious. The kitchen was well stocked. the house is so refreshingly colorful and bright. The grandkids loved the porch hammock. We would love to visit again.

                                                          Thank you so much for your great review. I am glad you liked the house. Please email me if there is anything we can do to make your stay better next time now that you know the house!

                                                          Overall very nice. Would suggest supplying a hair dryer. Also front bathroom check the tub dripping.

                                                          Thank you so much! Supplying hairdryers is a GREAT idea ... why did I know think of it?! I am sending one for each bathroom to the maid now to stock.

                                                          The property was exactly as described, Very comfortable and convenient!

                                                          I can't say enough about our stay. The house was adorable, beds were incredibly comfortable and the location could not have been better. Christy was immediately responsive to our needs! Will definitely be back.
