'FUN AND GAMES' A SUMMERS EDGE FAMILY FAVORITE, NOW BOOKING SPRING/SUMMER 2014

Seagrove Beach House Rental Photos and Description

Private house, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (sleeps 9-10)

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.

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 13 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

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.

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'.

We are delighted that you stayed with us again this February and thank you again for being so helpful during some necessary repairs to the house. We love having repeat guests who look out for the house as if it were their own. Thank you.
We look forward to welcoming you all back in February 2015, including Daisy and Kiko (the 2 most gorgeous Dalmatians).

A Very Happy Thanksgiving... November 2013

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.

Our new favorite place to stay!

  • Submitted: Oct 28, 2013

We stayed at Fun and Games during our Fall Break in October 2013, and it is without a doubt our new favorite beach house. Fun and Games is located in a quiet community close to both Seaside (west) and Rosemary Beach (east), which means you're never very far from good restaurants (we highly recommend the Mexican restaurant just before you get to Rosemary, right where the bike rentals are; also the cheese and wine place in Rosemary is fantastic). We have stayed at quite a few places along 30A over the years, and we really prefer this area much more than the crowded/touristy Destin/San Destin. The owners have thought of everything -- the kitchen was well-equipped, the whole house is beautifully decorated, and it was such a comfortable stay. It was great to have two bedrooms on the main floor for Grandma who couldn't handle stairs, and our 7 year old loved the bunk beds. We really enjoyed sitting on the screened in porch while we had our morning coffee with our pups (who loved squirrel watching). With the beach just a short walk away, it was easy to go back and forth throughout the day. There is not a single thing about Fun and Games that we would change, and we will definitely be staying here again!

Owner's Response: Kari
We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at Fun and Games and we would love to add your name to the list of repeat guests. The central location of Seagrove on 30A and easy beach access is what makes Summer's Edge so desirable, and one of the many reasons so many people love it.
For those of you looking for more detail on Kari's restaurant recommendations she is referring to La Cocina in Seacreat Beach and Wild Olives in Rosemary Beach, and yes both are wonderful! For guests staying at Fun and Games I do supply you with restaurant recommendations a few weeks prior to your arrival. The restaurants all along 30A are outstanding.

Great house

  • Submitted: Sep 10, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
We booked Fun and Games for a week at the end of August and had a great time. The house itself is well appointed, comfortable, and in a great location. It is a short walk to the pools and beach and a short bike ride to Seaside. Definitely would recommend this house to others.
Recommended for:  Families with Young Children
Owner's Response: Andy
So glad to hear you had a great time. So many people ask about the distance to the beach and pools, I hear back from them, over and over again, 'what an easy, quick walk it is'. The second most popular question is the distance to Seaside. And as you stated, it's a fun bike ride away.
We hope you will visit again soon

Joy Filled Week!

After searching VRBO for the perfect place for our beach vacation, we found "Fun and Games." We were excited to discover that this delightful home was available for the dates we needed. Although the pictures are wonderful and very current, they cannot begin to capture the charm of "Fun and Games." We've been traveling to the beaches along 30A for 20 years and have stayed in various homes and condos. "Fun and Games" has definitely become our favorite spot! The community of Summer's Edge is a wonderful collection of homes in a great location. We enjoyed seeing kids riding their bikes and adults chatting on porches each evening. The two pools are both very nice and an easy walk from the house. The beach is just beyond the pool-a very short walk from the house. There are lots of activities nearby, but we enjoyed the house so much we didn't want to stray too far from home. We've experienced many sunny days in Seagrove Beach, but this particular week brought lots of rain. The screened in porch was perfect for sharing stories and playing games. There are lots of games available to play-some we were familiar with and some we enjoyed learning! After dinner each evening we would take turns deciding which game to play. Each room in "Fun and Games" is beautifully decorated with lots of attention to detail. The furnishings are just exactly what a beach home should include: wonderful, soft cozy sofas and chairs as well as a very well equipped kitchen. We have had some great meals in the area, but this trip we enjoyed cooking all meals at home. It was fun writing the day's menu on the clever chalkboard hanging in the kitchen. Everyone in our group reported that their bed was very comfortable. We had contacted Laurie (the owner) before we arrived with some questions about kitchen furnishings, etc. She could not have been more helpful and welcoming. It is obvious that she and her husband have created a very loving beach home, and it is also obvious that she enjoys sharing it with others! We were so pleased with every aspect of "Fun and Games" - we can't wait to go back!

Owner's Response: David
It really warms my heart to hear that you enjoyed the house as much as we do, and in very similar ways. It's that "turquoise magnet" of the Gulf that draws us to 30A but occasionally the rain must fall, and when it does we are always on the front porch. There is nothing more relaxing than sitting in comfy padded wicker chairs, or draped across the couch, and listening to the sound of rain on the tin roof. I alway look forward to those moments and I'm glad to hear you enjoyed them as well.
The same goes for the kitchen. Although the restaurants along 30A are phenomenal, we find it hard to leave the house after long days spent at the beach. We have stocked the kitchen with all the tools needed to really cook (even Thanksgiving) because we enjoy doing that as a family. The perfect end to a beach day: wonderful food, a nice wine, an evening walk on the beach...
Wishing you sunnier skies at your next visit to Fun and Games
