Prepare to be spoiled forever at Seaduction, our huge house in the Ocean Hammock resort of Palm Coast! An atrium-style lanai with a pool, spa, and summer kitchen lure you outdoors, while every comfort (from Blu-ray HDTV to a wet bar) coaxes you indoors!<br/><br/>Seaduction has all the advantages of a 5-star resort plus the unique comforts of a family home. Here you will find many living spaces, relaxing bedrooms, a state-of-the-art kitchen, the latest electronics, and a wonderful sense of privacy among lush tropical landscaping and golf greens. All this, plus Cinnamon Beach just steps away!<br/><br/>Begin your exploration of the house in the lanai. This vast area has a clear roof, giving you the illusion of being in the open air. A summer kitchen awaits the catch of the day, while the pool shimmers, waiting for the kids to cannonball in. For you, a bubbly spa promises to replace every bit of tension with relaxation. Beautifully decorated in a contemporary style, the lanai is a pleasure day or night.<br/><br/>Just indoors from the lanai is the great room, with a stone fireplace, HDTV with Blu-ray and DVD player, overstuffed couches and chairs that make it difficult to think about getting up again, and plenty of space for the kids’ toys. There are several living areas at Seaduction, so part of your group can watch a children’s show in one room while others catch a game in another, and still others chat in the third! When you have a big group, keeping everyone happy depends on options – and you always have plenty of options at Seaduction!<br/><br/>The first-floor great room has soaring ceilings, overlooked by a second-floor hallway. Clerestory windows with many views help give Seaduction its feeling of sunny spaciousness!<br/><br/>The kitchen and dining areas of Seaduction are perfect for your large group. You’ll find the kitchen stocked with cookware and dishes, and its features are incredible, from the central prep island to the granite countertops, dual ovens, stainless-steel side by side, butler’s pantry, and mini office. There’s room at the big table for the whole group to enjoy a meal together . . . if you can lure them in from the pool, that is!<br/><br/>But if you need to be outdoors without all the activity of the pool area, try the second-story patio. From here you have a splendid view over the greenery of the golf course. The vast blue Florida sky is enticing, the casual furniture is comfy, and the WiFi (complimentary at Seaduction) is strong even out here. <br/><br/>When it’s time for family time, stop off at the wet bar for a nip (you bring the alcohol, we provide the irresistible setting!) and then settle in for a night of Texas Hold ‘em at one of the tables in the huge family room. There’s room here for the kids to play Twister, the grandparents to lay out a jigsaw puzzle, and the whole group to indulge in an epic battle of Risk. <br/><br/>And at bedtime, everyone retreats to their own sanctuary of relaxation. There are 2 master suites at Seaduction, 2 additional bedrooms, and even a sofa that converts into a bed for 2. Add the 3 full bathrooms and one half-bath, and you have luxurious accommodations for the entire group!<br/><br/>The first master suite is simply palatial, boasting a king bed, reading chairs, entertainment center, many windows, and a huge en-suite bath with a soaking tub, walk-in shower, and his-and-her vanities. The second master offers a queen bed with a pair of overstuffed chairs in a sunny nook, plus en-suite bath. There’s no second-best at Seaduction!<br/><br/>The third bedroom is a kids’ delight, with a double bed and plenty of play space while the fourth bedroom contains a king bed with a rocker and TV. All linens are provided here, plus towels for the bathrooms. And our big laundry room lets you keep the swimsuits and beach towels fresh!
My name is Steve Milo and I stay in Vacation Rental Homes when I travel both domestically and abroad. I own several vacation rental homes and listen carefully to our guests and their feedback and then opened my company Vacation Rental Pros in 2006! Our greatest compliment is when our guests refer our web site to their friends and relatives. AND, now Vacation Rental Pros is managing over 825 properties in Ft Myers Beach, Orlando, St Augustine Beach, Daytona Beach, Palm Coast and Ponte Vedra Beach. Our guests and their great 'word of mouth' have helped us expand to over 825+ vacation rentals. We booked over 15,000 rentals and received over 5,000 guest reviews in 2014.
We had a great vacation. The home was spacious and clean. The kitchen was well-appointed and stocked. The heated pool/spa area was wonderful and we spent most of our time there. Walking to the beach was easy and the trail is well-maintained. The neighborhood was quiet and secluded. The only downside, and it's a small one, was that VRP sent an independent repairman to the house to fix a window without any notice. I called the office while he was at the front door to make sure he was legitimate (as we had no knowledge of a window needing repair) but never got through to anyone…could only leave a message. I left a message for someone to please return my call to discuss but no one returned the call. We did let the repairman in & my husband escorted him in since the window was in a bedroom with personal effects. Overall, not a huge deal but a phone call, even after the fact, would have been nice.
Overall my wife and I were pleased with Seaduction, but there were several issues we feel the owner should address. The house was very large and clean. The kitchen was huge and well stocked.The master bedroom was also very large. Loved the walk-in shower. The pool area was wonderful for entertaining. We used the outside grill several times. The upstairs terrace, overlooking the pool and golf course was wonderful. Loved the large table and TV next to the kitchen. Short walk to the beach which was beautiful. Area very quiet and safe. As for the areas that need improvement: there was very little in the way of instructions. No instructions how to turn on pool lights or sauna "blower". No remote for the garage that we could find. House appears to have a sound system for every room. Could not figure out how it worked. Only one set of keys left for a house that sleeps 10. 60" TV in great room was nice, but developed horizontal lines over top half of screen. Repairman told us it needed to be replaced. TV in master bedroom is large, but old with average picture quality. Should be replaced with flatcreen. Wi-fi very slow. Could get internet, but not able to view webcasts, videos. Outside cushions for downstairs pool area need to be replaced. My cell phone reception at the house was terrible, others had more luck with their phones. Need new beach chairs. Ones in garage old and rusted. Several lights out in house, pool, and sauna. Light switch to stairs was broken. All of these required several trips by VRP and others. VRP staff very responsive and professional, but these things should have been fixed before we got there. House for sale while we were there and had four visits from rental agents and potential buyers. All very nice, but a bit of a nuisance. Driveway long but narrow. Tough for parking more than 2 cars. Several stains on carpet.
There was a party of eight in our group. All of us were comfortable in this beautiful spacious home. The kitchen was my dream kitchen. Loved the 6 element gas range with griddle. The kitchen had lots of cabinets for storage and there was even a large separate pantry. We found the kitchen to be adequately stocked and one of the few houses we rented that had sharp knives. The pool was beautiful and had a water fountain. That was so peaceful to hear when sitting out on the spacious patio. To sum it up all of us loved the house and enjoyed our vacation.
Wonderful rental, we loved every second! The heated pool and jucuzzi were a favorite, as well as the many different outdoor areas to relax. The layout of the house was perfect for our group of seven. Property was well maintained and clean. One of the screen panels came loose and I called and reported it to maintenance, but that was due to weather. We love the Palm Coast-Flagler area. I would definitely recommend this property.
