Guestbook comments from the owner
I don’t know where to start. Sweet Tea has so many things going for it that it becomes too much to write in one review. My wife and I have been fortunate enough to spend an entire month here with visits from three couples throughout that time. From the first day we were simply amazed with the beautiful rooms, pool, and crow’s nest, as we chose to call it. The upper floor, the crow’s nest to us, is really a very good sleeping area for families. It became my office with a view to the ocean that made even the work days a pleasure. We thoroughly enjoyed the open kitchen, dining and living room. We did a lot of cooking in the house and the appliances were very nice.



Probably the biggest hits in this home were the pool, proximity to the beach via the deeded access, and the separation of living spaces that allowed people to feel like they had their own private home on each floor. There was also an unexpected, but greatly appreciated bonus of having a real sense of privacy here. A wooded lot around three sides of the house made us feel like we were alone at the beach. Our guests all loved the crow’s nest. Two different couple chose that room to stay in and wake up to oceans sounds, beautiful sunrises and fresh sea air. At the other end of the day, I think we missed only 3 or 4 sunsets at the beach, fantastic views while we were here. I also was able to enjoy beautiful sunrises on my morning beach runs. The best runs are on the beach, I think.



We did have some cool weather early, but compared to what we left behind it was a heat wave. Things warmed nicely though to perfect 60 and 70 degree weather, thereafter.

This is our second stay on this coast and the weather has been terrific both trips.

We took bike trips up and down the hiking and bike paths on 30A. Explored the Helen State Park and really enjoyed looking at the different styles of homes along the beach and the residential areas on the north side of 30A. Airports were convenient and easily accessible. The beaches were almost completely open at this time of year and the few people we met walking the beach were friendly and as happy to be there as we were. We had one dolphin siting, and of course the beach birds were entertaining to watch. Of course, our greatest enjoyment was fresh seafood. We had almost daily visits to Goatfeathers II fish market. We had several ‘competing’ chefs over the month with visits from relatives and the fresh shrimp and fish.

We have loved visiting the Panhandle area for years. We love family biking and we really enjoy morning walks and watching the sunset on the beach. There are so many things to do for every member of the family. We are very blessed to have the opportunity to be the owner of this beautiful beach house and hope you all will enjoy this house as much as we do.

The Owner purchased this house in 2012

LOCATION...LOCATION...LOCATION...1 minute to the private deeded beach access, 2 minute walk to the beach. The beach is not crowed at all because it is surrounded with few houses. You do not need to get up early to reserve your space. Close to nearby areas... 4 minute bike ride to Alys Beach, 6 miles to Seaside. Yet, it is so quiet and peaceful at the house that you can hear the sound of the waves. The view of the ocean will clam you and relax you.

Our family takes a walk on the beach every evening together to watch the sunset. Our girls love to pick sea shells every morning. I run every morning to Rosemary Beach which is 3.1 miles round trip, a perfect 5k. I pick up fresh donuts on the way home. My husband loves to grill while drinking his favorite beverage and looking at the ocean. Every night we sit on the deck and enjoy the sound of waves. Bike to Deer Lake Park and enjoy the dunes and remember to reserve one day to take family pictures there, it is beautiful.....

GREAT HOUSE, GOOD LOCATION, POOR MANAGEMENT COMPANY

  • 4 of 5
Sweet Tea is a beautiful, clean and comfortable property located between Seagrove and Seacrest off 30A. While we prefer homes where we have a better view and can hear the ocean, this was an easy and direct walk to beach access. We had a few problems -- first morning discovered there were no coffee filters, then while grilling, propane tank ran out. Then during a thunderstorm, we had the 4 kids ready to watch "Frozen" and discovered DVD player was broken. Grace, the owner was prompt, apologetic and helpful with her response. "Garret Realty," the property management company the owners use, however, were unprofessional and never responded to my email which factually listed our series of issues during our stay. Bottom line: if you want a great house with good location (and don't care about "hearing" the ocean), this is a great rental with a responsible and reliable owner. But I would stay clear of Garrett and suggest the owners switch companies to get the service they deserve and pay for.

Owner's Response: Thank you Susan for staying at our house! We live in Atlanta, GA so we have a management company locally taking care the house if anything brakes, we did not know the DVD player was broken, I did ask our agent to bring a new one to the house the same day. There are packages of coffee with build in filter are supplied to our guest each week. I did let Susan know in my email that I sent to her before her booking about size of every room and the brand new stainless gas grill, I also stated that the gas may run out, renter has to refill it at gas station. Because it is extra that we supply to our renter, our agent does not fill the tank every week, they also do not know how many gas will be used during the week. We are honest people, we rent this house for more than two years with this local agent, this is first time I heard complain about them, I will have a discussion with them. Susan contacted me many times that I did response every email to make sure they had a good trip. I am sorry for some of your disappointments. I do hope you all did create many positive memories with your families, God Bless!

FALL IS PERFECT

  • 4 of 5
The accommodations of the house are very nice and the unit was clean. The decor is modern and very nice. The kitchen is well stocked - the only thing we missed was a muffin pan - but there was a griddle! The walk to the beach wasn't that bad, it took us about 5 minutes and crossing 30A with little ones wasn't difficult. The kids loved using the bicycles - they followed us on the bikes while we jogged - it's a perfect area for activity. We liked the convenience to both PCB and Destin but without the crowd. We love scenic 30A and will continue to come here in the fall - you can't beat it.

GREAT WEEK AT SWEET TEA

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time during our vacation stay at Sweet Tea! We especially loved the location of the house on the culdesac because we did not have to worry about our kids when they went outside to play! There were 7 bicycles available to use, all in good condition. We loved to bicycle to Alys and Rosemary Beach and it was not too far for the kids. The walk to the beach was not too bad. The house was very nicely decorated and clean! The upstairs bedroom doesnt have a door to shut it off but the other bedrooms were very clean and nice. This was our first time to go to beach in the middle of the summer and even though every where else was crowded you do not feel the crowds in this location on 30A. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and LOVE this part of 30A!!! Cant wait to come back!

EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS

  • 5 of 5
First vacation to the 30A area and wont be our last. 'Sweet Tea' was much better in person and much more spacious than the pictures reflect. Location was great - away from the busy areas of Rosemary, Seaside, and others but close enough to visit or even walk (Rosemary). The stroll down to beach was an easy little walk even with 2 small children. Absolutely no complaints and had a wonderful time. Will be back next October.

GREAT EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
The house was exactly as described - wonderful! Our family really enjoyed the stay at Sweet Tea. The home was VERY clean and Grace provided some nice extras such as bicycles, pool toys, beach chairs, etc. We had 7 in our party and were all very comfortable. The walk to the beach is very minimal and the street is exceptionally quiet where the house is located. Having a private pool only for us was a great benefit as well. It was our first time to that area and the beach was amazing, the number of things to do were plentiful...all in a little beach town type of feeling. Panama City Beach is only 10 minutes away and Destin only 30 minutes, so for those that desire a slower and quieter pace with a family-oriented atmosphere, but yet want to be close enough to the big attractions, this is the place! Thank you for a great experience Grace! You have a wonderful home!

BEAUTIFUL BEACH HOUSE/GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
My family, including two children, stayed here with another family of four and had a wonderful time. We have stayed in Rosemary Beach before, which is nice, but it is becoming overcrowded. This home is located close enough to Rosemary and Alys Beach amenities, yet far enough away so the beach is not too crowded. We vacationed during peak Spring Break time and never had a problem finding good open space on the beach, nor in the ocean.

We loved the new feel to the home, the ocean views, and all the extras the owners provide, such as the private pool, five bikes, beach chairs, cooler and cart. (Bike rentals in the area can be $55-70+ per bike/per wk.). Our kids enjoyed being able to ride the bikes in the cul de sac and surrounding quiet streets. We also truly appreciated the one minute wak to the beach access trail and to the paved trail along 30A. That was very convenient, which is another reason why we love this location.

Lastly, we highly recommend riding your bikes to the doughnut truck for breakfast in Alys Beach! (I think it took us 5 min.) We rode our bikes on the paved trail on 30A many times to various places. The one place we chose to drive to was Destin. It took us about 25 min. We shopped at the outlet mall and raced go-karts at the family amusement park/center. That was a blast too. We would definitely stay at this home again.
