About The Owner

Family of 4 from Atlanta, Ga.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Seacrest Beach

My husband Martin and I visited the Beaches of South Walton every year for 7 years. After staying at just about every beach along Hwy 30A we found that we loved the Seacrest, Rosemary Beach area the best. It is not as crowded as Seaside and has a lot of the same amenities. It is also located within walking distance of our favorite eatery, Wild Olives! We wanted a location where our children would be safe to explore on their own and a place to build lasting memories! We have not been disappointed and I am sure your family will love it too!

What makes this house unique

We love how close the beach is to the house and the location is perfect being within walking distance of 3 different retail and entertainment centers of Alys Beach, Seacrest Beach and Rosemary Beach. Also, being nestled between the Gulf and the pedestrian and bicycle friendly corridor of 30A we feel safe to let our kids explore the area on their own the way we used to be able to do when we were kids!

Our beach is so special because the dolphins love to swim there, we almost always get to see them swim and sometimes the even put on an aerial show for us! The kids love to catch crabs at night and almost every time we are there we get to experience some form of wildlife that is completely new to us. On one visit the beach was full of sand dollars. We must have found over 30 and we didn't even try that hard! Each time we visit I feel like I am going to a new place because it is always different!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had an absolute blast! Weather was perfect for almost the whole trip. House was perfect for our big family! The game room was perfect for all ages - pool was very nice! We hope to come back and visit again. We've been staying in this area (Santa Rosa, Blue Mountain) for about 7 years and this was our favorite house!! Maybe next time Tim and Faith will be here! P.S. Extra Ammenities (bikes and beach chairs) were greatly appreciated and used daily :-)

Problems not addressed

  • 2 of 5
Just got back from a week @ Neptunes Retreat. Ice maker stopped working mid week and calls to management company were not responded to so we had to buy ice all week. Sink in kitchen leaked -also not addressed after calls. Window in common hallway leaked - also left messages that went unanswered. Several toilets had issues that remained a problem and were again called in to management but went unanswered as well. It is a beautiful home with great beach access and a wonderful pool and arcade BUT these issues made our stay less than great. The management company needs to be addressed by owners because they are not responding to guests who have a limited time in the house and when issues go unanswered, guests are left up a creek.

Owner's Response: I apologize for not responding sooner, I just noticed your review. I am sorry you had a bad experience with property management. I wish you would have contacted me during your stay to escalate your issues, but I would like you to know that in Sept we hired a new property management company that has been very responsive for our guests. A new ice machine is on order and being installed in two weeks and the bathrooms are scheduled to be renovated and remodeled this January resolving future toilet issues. I want to thank you for taking the time to write this review as we value all guest feedback both positive and negative.

Unbelievable home!

  • 5 of 5
Neptune's Retreat was the best beach home we have ever stayed in. Every year, a large group of us vacation together in South Walton. We typically stay in Destin but decided to try something new this year and we are so glad we did! Neptune's Retreat was perfect for multiple families. The location is outstanding. The beach was a very short walk away and having the private pool was a huge plus. The kids loved the game room, while the adults enjoyed the spacious kitchen and private baths. Every inch of the home was decorated to perfection. The golf cart and bikes were certainly put to good use. We will definitely be back!

We really enjoyed the house last week. We were there celebrating my parents 50th wedding anniversary and all 22 of us (ages 6 mo. to 74) had a great time. I was so pleased with the house and its quality. The beach chairs, bikes and LSV were such a great value-added service. What a treat not to drag chairs to the beach every day and our teenagers loved the bikes and visiting all the shops. The LSV was such a great way to get all of our little ones to the park and ice cream shops each day

25. Love TV’s in all the rooms and ceiling fans
26. Great books, we used some and left some.

Thank you again,

The Mermaids

Perfect Beach Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this amazing beach house and couldn't have been happier with the amenities. There really isn't anything more you could ask for in a vacation home. The decor is delightful and there are two decks with views of the Gulf. The bedrooms are very comfortable and all are equipped with their own satellite TVs. The two kitchens are fully-stocked and you can enjoy the music from your iPod while you cook dinner! For the children (and the children at heart) there is a complete game room with a Wii gaming system, arcade game, air hockey, foosball, and many board games to enjoy during those rain showers in the afternoon. We took a bike ride down the sidewalk to Rosemary Beach where we enjoyed shopping and lunch at a sidewalk cafe. There was easy access to the beach. The best feature of all though had to be the private pool and hot tub! For concerned parents, there is a gate to the pool and the latch is at the very top. We'll be back next year!
