With three private porches, you'll have plenty of outdoor living in this home. The front porch has ample seating with Adirondack chairs and a bench. The upstairs balcony has loungers for relaxing in the sun. Or sit with your morning coffee on the screened porch and enjoy the peaceful beach neighborhood. In the evening, cook on the charcoal grill.
The cottage overlooks the neighborhood swimming pool so you can easily keep an eye on the kiddos.
The world famous beaches of 30A are just a 3 minute walk from the home.
At the entrance to the neighborhood you’ll find the 30A bike path – rent bikes for your stay and you’ll rarely need your car. The home is close to the bustling communities along 30A where you’ll find restaurants, shopping and events – Alys Beach is a mile west and Rosemary Beach is only two miles. The center of Seacrest is 1.5 miles east and Seaside is only 5 miles away. The new outdoor restaurant and music/movie venue, The Hub on 30A, is just over a mile away.
Parent Note: The dunes in this area are very high and there are several steps down to the beach. Be prepared for the climb! Trust us, it is worth it!
Parent Note: The first floor deck does not have a railing. Toddlers should be watched in this area.
