Seagrove Beach House Rental Photos and Description

10% DISCOUNT ON WEEK OR NIGHTLY RATE (3 NIGHT MINIMUM) SEPT. 1st-30th. CONTACT OWNER FOR DETAILS.

This beautiful house is named 'Making Memories' because our wish is it will give everyone happy memories! It is in the lovely community of Grove by the Sea at 26 Cullman Ave. in Seagrove. Beach. It is less that a mile from Seaside with all its shops and attractions without the higher rental prices. Located right off of 30A west of Panama City, you'll have close walking access (about .4 mile) to the sugar-white sandy beaches, emerald green water, and unbelievable sunsets. Nearby are two great community pools, a tennis court (which you can see from the upper deck), and a playground for the kids. The bike trail runs all along 30A and gives you miles of level, easy riding adventures. There are many great state parks nearby, like Eden State Park (3.5 mi).

Our house is decorated with touches of bright, happy colors, including original whimsical paintings by our daughter and popular artist, Tricia Robinson. A plus is the handicapped ramp which makes easy access for wheelchairs (and strollers). All four bedrooms and the living area downstairs have new flat screen TVs with DISH network providing lots of choices.

The main floor features a large wrap-around screened-in porch with plenty of rockers and a bench sofa in a nice sitting area plus a table for outside dining. 'Sparkle lights' go around the porch to add an extra touch at night. The house has wireless Internet connection for all of us laptop lovers. The inside is open with a spacious, fully-furnished kitchen, dining area, and living room. The dining table seats 8-10 plus 3 more at the bar. A full bath and a laundry area with iron and ironing board and new washer and dryer are off the hall. The cheery first floor bedroom has twin beds and French doors to the screened porch. In the closet are two umbrella strollers, a child's booster seat for using at the dining table, a child's gate for the stairs, a portable child's bed rail, and a small stool for young children to use at the sink in the bathroom.

On the 2nd floor you'll find two roomy and colorful bedrooms with queen beds, a single roll-away bed for extra sleeping, your own bathrooms, TV, DVD, and doors out to the porch with its bistro table and chairs for enjoying a cup of coffee, plus a comfy bench sofa, rocker, and porch swing for just relaxing. You can take a soothing bath in the jacuzzi tub in the master bathroom.

Go up the stairs to the 'tower room' and find a great area for the kids or a get-away for adults with TV and DVD player and a wet bar boasting a sink and fridge. Each end of that room has decks overlooking the lovely homes and streets of the community. You can get a breath-taking view of the starry night-time skies. There is sleeping for 4 with two bunk beds. There is also a table and chairs for games, writing, and more plus two fun 'flip chairs' for watching TV or just being comfy.

Outside the house you'll find a secluded shady yard with the sweet scent of magnolia trees and Rosemary bushes. The outside shower is a convenient way to wash away the sand. There are water toys for the pool or beach and four beach chairs with a handy wagon to carry chairs, kids, and more to the beach. A gas grill is also available.

THERE IS PARKING FOR 3 VEHICLES. SMOKING AND PETS ARE NOT ALLOWED.

About Betty Nelson

My husband and I always loved to travel, but after my husband became disabled, we had to go on trips of a day away or less. Coming to the beach with family is very special, and we all enjoy the whole amazing 30-A area. Making memories with the five grandchildren is a great blessing.

Why Betty Nelson chose Seagrove Beach

We started coming with our daughter and her family to the 30-A area when she began taking her art to the Rosemary Beach shows. After staying in Grove By the Sea a few tines, we really loved the peacefulness and beauty of the neighborhood. When this special house came on the market, we knew it was the perfect one for our family! Thus 'Making Memories' became our cheery home away from home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We could not conceive of a more wonderful, magical happy place to come for our family's getaway to the beach. We will cherish our memories of naps on the porch, happy meals around the table, horsey games in the front yard, and so much more. Everything was so perfect. We have relished the tenderness of God this week. We already cannot wait to return! We are going home restored and with full hearts.

You will love this house

  • 5 of 5
It's been almost a year since we were married in Sea Grove Beach. This house is awesome. We had plenty of room and by far the kids most favorite vacation spot. They have bikes there that you can ride down to the beach, or just walk. It's only about a 5 minute walk to the beach. There's a pool on both sides of the house and there's plenty of stuff to do. Trust me, if you want close to the beach in a great house with a great deal, stay here. You won't regret it.

Owner's Response: Our house truly is roomy but with plenty of areas to have privacy for the guests, too. The tennis courts, playground area, and one of the pools are all only 1/2 block away.

Memories were Made!

  • 5 of 5
We just enjoyed our third stay at Making Memories over this Spring Break and had a truly fantastic time. Grove by the Sea is my favorite community in Seagrove and Making Memories is definitely one of the nicest homes located there and certainly one of the best rental values around! Our favorites things include the amazing porches (I napped most successfully on the porch adjoining the master bedroom --what a luxury!), the provided beach chairs and wagon for hauling of stuff, the tower room and the cool lounging chairs (kids zone!) and the option to have the less accessible members of our party sleep on the first floor, with their own adjoining full bath. The ice cream man drove by every afternoon during our visit and the kids managed to cajole us into buying them ice cream almost every day. They both enjoyed having the freedom to ride their bikes around the community without parental supervision, as it's flat and impossible to get lost and so many kids and dog walkers are always about. We definitely availed ourselves of the tennis court on several occasions as well, dusting off our racquets for impromptu family round-robin tournaments. The location is in the center of the community, an easy walk to both pools and about a 10 minute walk to the beach. I walked to Seaside almost every morning (found the Truman Show house!) through the 'back roads' and also walked to get donuts at the Donut Hole in Seagrove. Betty is such a pleasure to work with on the arrangements and very quick to respond to all emails. The only 'negative' I found is that if you are planning on working while there or need a high speed internet connection to stream movies etc., the Wi-Fi is on the slower side. It's certainly serviceable for general web surfing and email. We will definitely be back again!

Wonderful Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a wonderful vacation to 30A in this great home. The home is lovingly decorated with a very comfortable warm feeling. There was plenty of room for my family as well as my brothers family. There were 4 adults and 6 kids in the home and we all had plenty of space. The kids loved the tower room and felt like they had their on apartment. We all enjoyed the convenient neighborhood pools. The location is perfect for riding bikes to the beach and Seaside. The home owners were also wonderfully easy to work with and very helpful in planning our vacation. I would recommend this home to anyone ready to make memories of their own and hope to one day soon return.

A Lovely Home & Quiet Neighborhood

A Lovely Home & Quiet Neighborhood
  • 5 of 5
"Making Memories" is a lovely home. It is well maintained, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The house was large enough to accompany my family of ten and there was ample space for all of us. We all felt so at home in this house, it truly was a great place for spending time and making memories. The wrap around porches were like added living space and we ate several meals there. The porches also provided such a nice place to read, escape for a quiet moment and to look at the stars in the evenings. The children loved the tower room and enjoyed having their own space to escape to. We used the pool in the back of the neighborhood and it was just a short walk. The pool was just the right size and an attractive feature of the area. This home is located in a charming neighborhood with walking paths. It was quiet and felt very safe as well.

The owner is the nicest person I've had the privilege of renting from in all the years I've rented properties through VRBO. She was always available by phone or email when I had a question or concern.

This was a very pleasant vacation for my family and it was largely due in part to our stay at "Making Memories". We enjoyed staying in the Sea Grove Beach area and hope to return again for another memorable visit. I highly recommend this home - it is delightful!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5
We selected 30-A and Making Memories as the venue for our annual Mother/Daughter/Sisters weekend. What a perfect choice!
The house is conveniently located to the beach, pools, Seaside, shopping, dining and just about anything that you need for a get-away. Our hostess, Betty, kept in touch with me the weeks preceding the trip and provided me with a number of tips for what to see, where to shop & where to rent bikes.
The house was ideal with enough space (and bathrooms!) for six ladies to make themselves at home. We spent the evenings rocking on the porch, breathing in the salty beach air and catching up with one another.
The trail is a short walk away and great for a morning run or afternoon bike ride to get ice cream.
I can't say enough about the hospitality of Betty and her beautiful home. Thank you so much for sharing it with us!
