About Kevin & Stacy Casebier

Hi, we are Kevin & Stacy. We currently live in Atlanta but have been vacationing along 30-A since the 1980s. We enjoy spending time at our beach home with our friends and family and love the quaint, white-picket fenced Summer's Edge neighborhood.

We hope you enjoy Toes in the Sand as much as we do. Come on down and visit and enjoy a truly special vacation.

Why Kevin & Stacy Casebier chose Summer's Edge

LOCATION, PRIVACY, BEACH, LAKE - Prestigious Summer's Edge is a private, (Southern Living) award-winning, Gulf-front community with luxurious vacation homes similar to nearby Seaside, Watercolor, and Rosemary Beach... except we are closer to the beach and adjacent to beautiful Eastern Lake, a bird and wildlife sanctuary.

BEST OF BOTH WORLDS (Beach & Lake) Easy beach access is provided via the neighborhood's wooden boardwalk. Seagrove has one of the finest sugar white sand beaches you will see and is renowned for its natural scenic beauty and turquoise waters earning Travel + Leisure magazine’s award for 'Best Beaches on Earth' for families. Santa Rosa Beach was named one of the “10 Best Beach Destinations for 2011” by Yahoo! Travel, which praised its “lapping waves and cool sand” and the endless array of outdoor and indoor activities.

Eastern Lake, a coastal dune lake and bird & wildlife sanctuary is located just a few blocks away. You will find public access where kids can play, YOLO boarding, kayaking, fishing (fresh & saltwater)

We have a wider lamp-lit gated street, direct, private beach access, two pools and a privacy gate combined to make Summer's Edge the perfect location.

There is no need to rent anything as we have provided everything including bikes, beach equipment, etc.

South Walton is a mix of sophisticated style and Old Florida charm giving it a unique vibe. Discover local artists, quaint beach shops and boutiques. There is plenty to do and we are conveniently located to everything yet there are no traffic jams and limited hi-rise and franchised developments. If you seek a relaxing getaway then the place to be is South Walton, even better is south of 30-A (the beach side) and the very best is at Summer's Edge. Why choose Toes in the Sand? Simple. It offers the best value not only in Summer's Edge but in the local area. Check it out for yourself. We invite you to come down and put your 'Toes in the Sand.' You'll be glad you did.

What makes this house unique

Watching sunsets from the 'Tower,' read or nap in a hammock to a gentle gulf breeze; take a short, 4 minute stroll to the beach (about 250 yards) via the neighborhood walkway (no need to cross the highway), walk to local restaurants and shops or around 30A. Riding bikes along the miles of bike trails, Eastern Coastal Dune Lake, Deer Lake Park or a brief 1.8 miles to Seaside for wine tasting, a movie, live music and dancing. On Saturday and Tuesday mornings the Seaside Farmers Market offers fresh local produce, dairy products, baked goods, and native plants. Demonstrations in cooking and gardening are also held on a regular basis. Swimming in the heated pool (500' away) in early spring and late fall or in the non-heated, infinity pool mid-summer. Cooking and eating in with family or going out to visit a variety of restaurants. The ice cream truck visits daily with ice cream treats for the kids. No need to worry about traffic or the kids in this gated, upscale, private community. There are numerous year-round events nearby for all ages.

There are excellent award-winning restaurants nearby including Cafe 30A (check out the BOGO before 6 p.m.), Bud & Alley's, and Red Bar. Or check out Goatfeathers for fresh seafood.

South Walton is an ecological paradise with more than 40% (56,000 acres) of the area preserved state land, providing many natural attractions. There are miles of paved trails that are ideal for biking, hiking, and jogging and the State Parks, including Point Washington State Forest, also have trails for off-road biking. Fresh and salt water lakes, Choctawhatchee bay and the Gulf of Mexico provide many waterfront miles for swimming, fishing, kayaking, YOLO boarding and other recreational past-times.

South Walton is also home to the largest concentration of rare coastal dune lakes in the world. Similar eco-systems can only be found in Madagascar, Australia, New Zealand, and the Northwest Pacific coast of the U.S.

Best Home We've Ever Rented on 30A

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this home. It's clean and super comfortable. You can tell it's someone's second home with great amenities versus "just a rental". The walk to the beach is about 2 blocks and only 9 steps down to the sand. Two pools available for use. Very comfy bed in the master and the downstairs living space with sectional is wonderful. Pet friendly too. Enjoyed sitting on the porches to read or enjoy coffee or a glass of wine. Nice street and within walking distance to some good restaurants. Owner was very easy to work with which was a real plus. Highly recommend and we can't wait to go back!!

Life's a Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This home fit us perfectly. It was clean, had plenty of beach chairs, umbrellas, toys, and carts to carry it all the short walk to the beach. We encountered only one problem and it was taken care of immediately. Perfect location, two pools to chose from, easy walk to the beach. Nice quiet street, virtually no traffic and yet still convenient to shops, restaurants, food stores, etc...we would easily return on another vacation. Would recommend some instructions for use of the various electronic devices along with a cable listing of channels.

Toes in the Sand

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a fantastic week at Toes in the Sand on our annual summer vacation. The house was perfect for our two adult children, their spouses and our 4 grandchildren. We loved the charming family oriented neighborhood. The house was equipped with everything we needed including bikes and beach equipment. The beautiful, white sand beach was a short walk from the house as were the two swimming pools. Our grandchildren ages 6-10 had a blast playing in the ocean and swimming in the pools. We would definitely recommend this rental to others seeking an authentic beach experience and hope to return with our family in the future. Thanks to Kevin and and Stacy for sharing their charming home with our family!

Adorable and relaxing cottage

  • 5 of 5

First time staying in a home vs. condo and we really enjoyed our stay. The home was decorated beautifully and was very quite and comfortable for our family of six. We highly recommend Seagrove and Toes in the Sand. Very laid back without the hustle and bustle you experience at some of the busier resorts and beaches.

Clean, Comfortable, Convenient

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific time staying at Toes in the Sand. The location is perfect, a short walk or ride into Seaside but nice and quiet after a day at the beach. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and provided all that our family of five needed. I would recommend Toes in the Sand!

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent our Spring break at Toes in the Sand with our family of 2 adults and 5 children. It was a perfect location! The beach is a short walk and we felt comfortable letting the kids walk by themselves. I am so glad we chose a house that did not require crossing 30a. The street being blocked off on one end allowed for the children to play in the street with lax sticks, balls, etc. while we sat on the porch. You can easily see the porch while you are in the kitchen as well. There is lots of seating on the porch which makes it a perfect place to hang out. The rooftop seating and hammock is an added bonus. A nice cozy space with a view of the area.

The house was furnished with everything we needed. Plenty of extra in the closets. The furniture is well cared for and in good condition. The master bed was very comfortable. We did not have that adjustment period that comes with sleeping in a vacation bed. The kitchen is extremely well stocked. I cooked many times and was happy for not just one spatula or mixing spoon but many. The bikes were nice to have on site. There is not a child's bike but the rental place is very close. We all were very impressed with the decor, cleanliness and amenities of Toes in the Sand. Our friends who have vacationed for years in the area, commented numerous times on how nice the house was, especially with the location. I can't recommend this house enough for families with elementary age children. Our children were ages 14-5. The street is perfect and it is the nicest porch on the street by far!

In addition, the owners were a breeze to work with and very responsive to all my questions. Very gracious and hospitable.
