ONLY HAPPY DAYS is located in a small, quiet, well-maintained 'natural' community, Grove by the Sea.
Set in a lush, peaceful spot shaded with tall pine trees and other natural Florida vegetation, there is easy access to all the amenities that make a beach vacation perfect for everyone, no matter what age or interest!
ONLY HAPPY DAYS is just a minute walk to either one of the two beautiful community pools or a five minute walk to the beautiful white sands of the Gulf Coast. The Grove also offers tennis, a children’s play area, and walking/biking paths. The popular resort of Seaside is a mile west of Seagrove. There you can find shops with treasures and restaurants with a variety of cuisine's to top off your day.
Beautifully furnished with many decorative 'Out of Africa' touches, the main house of ONLY HAPPY DAYS has an open living area designed for comfortable gatherings, whether you enjoy entertaining or listening to music or watching TV/movies. Many board games, video tapes, DVDs, and books are available for a lazy time of fun and fellowship. The living room sofa is a queen-size sleeper.
The master suite is also on the first floor. It has a king-size bed and lounging area for relaxing with a good book or TV. The master bath has a Jacuzzi tub and a separate shower area. The master suite has private access to either the screened-in porch or the back deck, either are perfect for that first morning cup of coffee as you enjoy the natural gulf coast vegetation and tall pine trees that are a trade-mark of the Grove.
The dining room has a large, round table that seats eight for those special meals when the group gathers. The bar adjacent to the dining room seats four for lunch or to accommodate a larger crowd at dinner. There is also a glass dining table that seats six on the screened-in porch for outdoor dining.
The kitchen is fully equipped with many, many extras (we are a family that likes to cook and eat when we are on vacation!) There is a gas grill on the back deck for just the right warm weather barbecue dinner.
*The bright and cheery yellow bedroom upstairs has a queen-size bed and its own private deck.
*The bunk room, decorated brightly with the kids in mind, has a set of bunk beds and a full-size bed.
* Both of these rooms are equipped with TVs. They share a spacious bathroom with double sinks.
The guest house has a charming 'Caribbean' feel. The main room opens up to a screened deck. Sitting on this deck is like being in a tree house on the edge of a pine forest!
Make the sunset on the beach a tradition. There is magic in those blue and orange clouds. Come grab a piece of it. We are always happy when we are at 'Only Happy Days' and know that you will be too!!

I just want you let you know we enjoyed staying at your
beautiful house. The neighborhood is
very friendly. We made our Thanksgiving
dinner at the house, you had all the items I need to made and serve our
dinner. The location was great, we were
able to walk or bike to the beach and Seaside!
Our family enjoyed a wonderful week together and look forward to coming back!! Our eldest daughter and her family stayed in the garage apartment. It was perfect for them but allowed them to still be very connected to the rest of us. We loved the quiet neighborhood, family feel, and short walk to the beach or pool!!! The beach was much prettier than any other we have been to along the gulf coast. We rented a few bikes and they were great for getting around and enjoying the neighboring towns. Thanks for a great place!
We stayed in this home for 2 weeks. When we arrived, the couch was broken. Within two days, we saw rat droppings on the kitchen counter. The owner sent a handyman: He put a brick under the couch and set small traps -- neither of these "fixes" worked. Unfortunately, we spent 2 weeks dealing with rat droppings, waiting for repair people, and following up with the pest control company.
The house itself needs other updates like cabinetry repairs in the kitchen, additional dishes and pans, and more. The owner is very personable, she just needs to show this house some TLC.
Only Happy Days is a wonderful property located a short walk to pool and beaches. We had 5 grandchildren, ages 1 to 11, and they all had fun taking a short walk to the pool, the playground with swing set is across the street, and the ocean with beach access is a short walk away. All of us enjoyed sitting on the large screened porches. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly..felt like we knew the neighbors before we left. The property is very clean and maintained well, and close to all the fun at Seaside, Rosemary Beach and Grayton. We definitely recommend this property to a large family or group.
This property was awesome! My husband and I had 6 boys with us, 3 18 year olds (who stayed in the MIL apt) and 3 16 year olds who stayed with us in the main house. The house was very comfortable, clean and well decorated. The walk to the pool was very short (I had a stress fracture and was wearing a boot) and to the beach doable as well. My only recommendation would be to put a good TV in one of the upstairs bedrooms where the other group of kids could hang. Otherwise....just perfect!
We took my sons and their friends to Only Happy Days for spring break and they and I had a wonderful time. The house has great space for kids, and still gives grown-ups privacy and comfort. Everything is very clean and attractive, but set up so we could relax. It's a short walk to the beach, and it's a great neighborhood for walking, we strolled every evening. It's an easy walk or bike ride into Seaside and we basically parked the car while we were there. The beach is beautiful. This is a great spot to get away for a family, or a group of friends.
Our family has enjoyed Only Happy Days for several years now--it's the perfect gathering spot for multi-generation vacations. A short walk to the beach allows time for most of the sand to disappear and two beautiful swimming pools accommodate the non-beach lovers (read small kids). The cottage comes complete with a little red wagon for transporting babies and beach chairs and the gourmet kitchen gives vacationers the option to eat in, saving both bucks and sanity. The neighborhood is a wonderful mix of year round residents and vacationing families, that's friendly, not to mentioned extremely well maintained.
And it's right in the middle of everything you love to do at the beach. Bike to Seaside, Watercolor or Rosemary Beach, short car ride to Grayton, Destin and Panama City--and there's a Publix, movie rental and liquor store within biking distance. Who could ask for anything more?
