Welcome to Four Girls and a Daddy - where all your stress will melt away! We are a 3 story beach house that features 3 BR & 3 Full BA. The 1st floor features a queen bed & full bath with walk in shower and the Second floor features a Master king size bed with private bath, and a guest room with a double and a single bed with an adjacent full bath with tub and shower. Sleeps 7 people comfortably. Each bedroom has a separate private porch. The third level, with two separate balconies, is a wonderful place to get away to view the gulf and the stars above.
A short 5 minute walk, 1/5 of a mile, down the street to the beautiful Gulf Beaches and Eastern Lake, the house is located in a quiet setting on a private gravel road on the beach side of 30A. You do not have to cross 30A to go to the beach! Nearby is Seaside, Rosemary Beach & Alys Beach. Walk to Flip Flops Restaurant or The Old Florida Fish House on Eastern Lake. 21 miles of bike paths on Scenic Highway 30-A are a block down the street. Bike rentals & Kayak rentals are right down the street on 30-A. Gulf Kayaking and Yolo Boarding is a favorite sport in the area, as well as exploring by kayak the rare coastal dune lakes that surround the area. Sea Turtles nest in our area and the South Walton Turtle Watchers take daily strolls in the morning to locate new turtle nests.
The house features hardwood floors, stainless appliances, 10' high ceilings, and over 700 square feet of covered and uncovered porches. The 3rd floor features a view of the Gulf. Enjoy the Teak lounge chairs on the master bedroom 2nd floor covered porch, or eat outside on the 1st floor covered porch. Enjoy the 3rd floor yellow cypress high chairs and high table for drinks & hors d'oeuvres or for just watching the sun set or star gazing!
Lots of green space surround the property with a very private feel. Swimming pool down the street on your way to the beach. Plenty of free outdoor concerts, movies and activities for the kids nearby!

We purchased in the area due to its proximity to the beach and Eastern Lake. Every year we fall in love with the area we have chosen. It is away from all the hustle and bustle of Seaside, but then close enough to visit by foot or bike. The Eastern Lake area is home to many nesting sea turtles and we have had the benefit of exploring turtle nests with local Turtle Watch experts. The gulf and coastal lakes are full of life and we love kayaking out in the areas to embrace these wonderful blessings!
Our home is very comfortable and relaxing for a family or romantic getaway. Our location is a plus due to its quiet location, but closeness to the beach, restaurants, bike trails and kayaking.
We went over Labor Day Weekend and really enjoyed staying in this house! It's an easy short stroll to beach and the home is well equipped! We especially enjoyed the upstairs deck as it was a nice place to have evening cocktails? The beds were extremely comfortable and the house was bright and extremely clean! We would definitely recommend and will be going back soon!
We had a wonderful time at 4 girls and a daddy. The house was immaculate. The house was perfectly comfortable for my mother/3 older childern/my husband and brother. The location awesome, just a easy walk on a low trafficed street to beach/lake and pool. I let my 15, 12 and 9 years walk by themselves. My kids love the beach/lake and the all the wildlife. The owner was always available to answer questions in a timely manner. The photos were accurate, except they showed a telescope and hammock in pictures and these were not in the house. I would suggest to the owner providing more beach equipment, for example, umbrella, coolers, beach towels, since most people driving do not want to bring with and back home. Also, no local tv stations or cable. This was an annoyance due to the fact that we wanted to keep abreast of the local news. We did not know the weather or the happens on the oil in gulf. Overall, we had a great time. I would highly recommend renting bike and kayahing from Sunny Days, the owner of the company extremely accomadating. The information provided by owner about the area and the local attrations was extremely helpful. We escepecially enjoyed the houses proximity to Seaside. It was great to ride bikes to area for outdoor entertainment and ice cream. I would also reccomend getting seafood from Goatfeathers. We will definately come back.
Wow! What a wonderful place to relax and connect with family and grandchildren. When my daughter and her family drove up, my "almost six year old granddaughter" said "I know this is the most beautifuliest (of course it's not a word but she made it one) house I've every been to. Everything was totally convenient for cooking, etc. The beds were so comfortable. That is not always the way it is when you rent a place. My two year old granddaughter was so compliant about not getting on the stairs.
We all learned to play Chinese Checkers again! Hopefully, the beach will stay beautiful and we can return for a repeat "wonderful time."
As my husband and I drove up to 4 Girls and a Daddy, we said, "Wow, this is nice; it looks so new! We admired the high-ceilinged front porch with its expensive tropical dark-wood fans (more inside) and every room has a deck! When we stepped inside (sans shoes) we remarked on the bright rooms and high ceilings. It has beautiful decor, hardwood floors, fireplace, kitchen appliances nicer than our own, a comfortable king-size bed in the 'master suite' on the 2nd floor, also beautifully furnished, and a 3rd story 'Martini Lounge' room with an overstuffed comfy chair and matching ottoman. There are two decks on either side of the lounge. Since no house has been built on the lot to the side or back, and you're on a side street, we enjoyed the most peaceful beach stay ever. We've rented a lot of places that looked good online yet turned out to be a disappointment. To me, there's nothing worse than returning in the evening to a poor rental place after an enjoyable day of activities and dining. However, I always looked forward to coming back to 4 Girls and a Daddy...and you will, too.
The house was perfect & in our favorite area! We rode our beach cruiser bikes to breakfast, lunch & dinner. We spent the days at the beach kayaking, skim boarding at the inlet, picking seashells & building sandcastles. I look forward to my next stay at this house!
My family and I were the first ones to rent you beautiful beach home in the summer of 2009. Just what I expected beautiful and spotless. (and I am a very pickey person) We talk about how much fun we had on the beach, riding bikes, kiacking, and of course eating out at all the awesome restaurants near by. Pizza by the Sea and Flip Flops were 2 of our favorites. We can't wait to go back. I would recommend this house and this area to anyone. It is a very good area cause you are in the middle of Destin and Panama City.
21 mile Bike path runs adjacent to Scenic Highway 30-A to bike to Seaside, Watercolor, Grayton Beach, Alys Beach, Rosemary Beach and bike to adjacent Deer Lake State Park with beautiful sand dunes. Many sea turtles come to nest in our area of the beaches.
