Seagrove Beach House Rental Photos and Description

Private house, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (sleeps 8-10)

***The best is getting better! A top to bottom remodel is currently underway. Check back in early January for new photos.

Fun and Games is located in the highly desirable, family friendly, gated community of Summers Edge in Seagrove Beach. South of Scenic Hwy 30A, the location provides carefree beach and pool access in a bike and pedestrian friendly neighborhood. Located adjacent to the 18 mile bike path running the length of Hwy 30A, bike trips to restaurants, shops, Seaside and Watercolor are a breeze. The neighborhood has 2 beautiful pools (1 heated in cooler months) and a charming dedicated beach access all within 150 yards of the house with no busy streets to cross.

Inside and out, 'Fun and Games' is your perfect beach retreat, ideal for families or couples. The screened front porch with double mahogany doors is the perfect place for morning coffee, afternoon chats, and evening cocktails. Inside you will find a Pottery Barn perfect, large great room with double ceiling fans. With room for everyone, enjoy family movie night or choose from the extensive supply of games and start a family game night tradition. The spacious, meticulously stocked, cooks kitchen overlooks the great room so no one is left out. The kitchen has all stainless steel appliances, ample room for multiple cooks, and a large pantry. The dining room seats 6 comfortably and the large breakfast bar seats 4 more. We have also provided a Weber charcoal grill outdoors for your grilling needs.

The master bedroom makes up the entire second floor, making it your own private retreat. It has an extremely comfortable king sized bed, large walk in closet, personal TV, a beautiful writing desk and a reading chair with ottoman. French doors open on to a private outdoor deck with a bar height table and chairs. The spacious master bath has double sinks and a very large shower. The master retreat is your own special vacation.

The 2 additional charming bedrooms are on the main floor and they share a Jack and Jill bath. The first bedroom has bunk beds with a trundle (3 twins) and a double bed. The closet in this room has been organized to efficiently hold clothes for several children and there is a personal TV. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed and a personal TV. The large Jack and Jill bath has double sinks and a bathtub/shower. All bedrooms have personal TVs, DVD players and ceiling fans.

Additionally, downstairs there is a full laundry room and a separate powder room off the kitchen. One of the couches in the great room is a sofa sleeper if you need additional sleeping space.

Outdoors there is a wonderful, large and private outdoor shower with hot and cold water. It is heavenly on warm days, cool days and even in the rain! Once you try it, you will be hooked.

Seagrove Beach is in the heart of the beautiful 18 mile stretch of the Gulf commonly know as 30A. With its pristine, sugar sand, uncrowded beaches and rare fresh water lakes the area is pure unspoiled Florida, a beach lovers dream and a nature lovers fantasy. There are many authentic beach towns to explore along Scenic Hwy 30A, Seaside, Watercolor, Grayton Beach, Alys Beach and Rosemary Beach, just to name a few. Outstanding restaurants, unique shops, farmers markets and the friendly locals can keep your non-beach hours full, and I almost forgot to mention free outdoor concerts, free outdoor movies on the lawn, and outdoor plays. Whether you are planning your first trip to Scenic 30A or you have been coming here for years, 'Fun and Games' will be your perfect beach house getaway.

About Laurie

In need of a break from the frigid Chicago spring weather, my husband and I first visited Seaside with our children in 1999. We fell in love with the area instantly. We both felt so at ease and relaxed, the pace was perfect, and the beaches were indescribable. We were hooked and so were our kids, everyone hated to leave and our return trips became a bi-annual necessity. In the spring of 2002 we discovered the new neighborhood of Summers Edge on one of our biking real estate tours and the rest is history. Over 16 years later the feelings are exactly the same, we are still in love with the area, we are completely at ease and relaxed when we are there, we love the pace, and we always still hate to leave. Seagrove Beach on Scenic Hwy 30A is definitely a slice of heaven.

Laurie purchased this house in 2002

Why Laurie chose Seagrove Beach

We choose Summers Edge for its quaint 'old florida' feel, its wonderful proximity to the beach and Eastern Lake without any busy roads, and its great family feel. We had a few houses to pick from at the time, but my husband knew instantly, the house with the mahogany screen doors and the big, high ceilinged great room would be ours. We named the house 'Fun and Games' because we knew that would represent all the family memories we would make there. It has definitely lived up to its name.

What makes this house unique

As the original owners, we have always meticulously maintained this house. It is part of our family and always will be. We enjoy sharing it with others so they can create wonderful beach memories as well. We think you find it as pristine as it was in 2002, only now it is full of so many happy times and 'Fun and Games'.

A Perfect Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful spring break week at Fun and Games with our four kids (ages 9, 7, 5, and 2). Laurie's communication was incredible. She emailed us information about everything from the local Farmer's Market to tips of where to stop on our drive down from Wisconsin. She was readily available at any time to answer any question we had about the house or the area. The house itself looked like we had walked into the pages of a Pottery Barn catalog and was so comfortable and welcoming. The house is beautifully maintained. Everything looks new. The kitchen was expertly stocked with everything you could need for the kitchen or cooking -- yet there was no clutter. There was a wonderful pantry to put any of our groceries. The dishes, glasses, etc. were plentiful and of utmost quality. There was a full, matching set of anything we needed. And of course, the games. She had every board game you could think of -- and again they were all in perfect condition and looked like new. We had some rainy days and the games were lots of fun. It is obvious Laurie takes great pride in the home and has made it "like home" for her guests. We spent every day we could at the beach. For the age of our kids, we felt the distance from the beach was perfect. It was a short, very easy walk, but we also enjoyed being a bit down the street from the busier road. The area is a great vacation spot for families. Plenty to do with the beach and the pool. We spent a great deal of time reading reviews and choosing a home. We made the perfect choice. We would stay at Fun and Games again and again. It was just perfect!

Owner's Response: Amy- We are always thrilled to have guests discover the the many wonders of 30A. There are so many wonderful things to see and do, and it seem the list is always growing and evolving. But the true gem is the beach, the one thing that brings us all there in the first place.
I am also glad to hear that the house worked out well for you and your family. We love this house, and do our best to keep it pristine and completely functional for all of our guests.
We hope you will have a chance to visit again soon

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5
Great facility. Our family of 15 including married children and grandchildren rented two units with this one being home base. The facility was more than we expected. Nice furniture. Quiet surroundings. Close to bike paths and activities at SeaSide. The unit is 1/4 mile from the beach and the pool is on the way. The master with king bed/bath etc is on the second floor which might be an issue for some people but the bedrooms down stairs are great as well. One set of bunk beds were great for grandchildren.

Owner's Response: Phillip- I'm so glad to hear the house worked well for your family gathering. The neighborhood of Summers Edge is a wonderful place to do a family reunion, in fact we are doing one next week. If anyone would ever like suggestions on additional houses next door or in the neighborhood please do not hesitate to ask. We are original owners in the neighborhood and I am familiar with many of the other houses.
I hope you will be able to plan a return visit to Fun and Games

A Week of Fun and Games

  • 5 of 5
Just returned home from a week of Fun and Games at Summers Edge. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay--our very first to 30A! Fun and Games is a beautifully appointed home that is well designed for rest and relaxation. It's Pottery-Barn-design styling and comfort exceeds the impression made by the online photos. It is clearly well maintained and it was a pleasure to call it home for a week.

Summers Edge is a quaint little spot on 30A that we would definitely recommend to friends and family, and that we definitely intend to visit again. The area is packed with excellent dining options, and we were really pleased with the owner's recommendations for places to grab a great meal. We especially enjoyed Cafe 30A, saving it for a special dinner out, and it did not disappoint. We also frequented Bud and Alley's in the heart of Seaside. Hard not to like fresh seafood, cold and tasty drinks and a seabreeze on your face after a day of exercise and beach!

Bottom line is that Fun and Games exceeded our expectations and the owner was a pleasure to work with. We really appreciated their tips, recommendations, and prompt responses to the inquiries we made. If you are considering this home for a place to call home for your precious time away from work or other responsibilities, be confident that you will be making an excellent choice.

Owner's Response: Ross and Carrie-I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed discovering the wonders of 30A. It really is a magical place. When you visit again I can highly recommend the restaurants Great Southern in Seaside and V in Seagrove. Another great outing would be one of the awesome Farmers Markets, Saturday mornings in Seaside and Sunday mornings in Rosemary Beach, both are wonderful. Perhaps you can work in a Fall visit to 30A, its really one on the nicest times to be at Fun and Games.
Hope to welcome you back soon

Perfect beach retreat

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our beach vacation, and we miss "Fun and Games" so much! The home is beautifully decorated, and the owners have thought of everything to make it so comfortable. Loved the screened porch and outdoor shower! Summer's Edge is the perfect location on 30A, right in the middle of everything. Walking down to the beach after dinner was one of our favorite things to do. Don't miss Goatfeathers for seafood to cook at home. We had a fabulous dinner at V Seagrove, and also enjoyed the rooftop deck at Bud & Ally's. And the Airstreams in Seaside were a hit with the whole family! Can't wait to go back.

Owner's Response: Dana I'm so glad to hear everyone had a great time. Sounds like you enjoyed all of our favorite things and places. We hope you can plan another visit to Fun and Games soon. The Farmers Market at Seaside on Saturday and Rosemary Beach on Sunday should be on your list for next time.

A Very Happy Thanksgiving... November 2013

  • 5 of 5
My wife, 2 boys (ages 8 & 12) as well as my in-laws & dog had a great relaxing time. The house had everything you need to just "get away"... It was a COLD November but our mission was to relax. The little towns on 30A are "neat" to just people watch, etc.

The State Park (especially since it was cooler) was awesome. Opportunity for long walks was very nice.

Owner's Response: Matt
I'm so glad you and your family enjoyed your Thanksgiving at the beach. 30A is becoming a very popular spot for the fall and winter holidays, and as you mentioned it is a wonderful time to explore the State Parks along 30A. There are several to experience along our 18 mile stretch of Scenic Highway, all are beautiful, and often missed by the summer visitors.
We would love to welcome you back to Fun and Games for you future beach get-a-ways.
