FUN AND GAMES A SUMMERS EDGE FAMILY FAVORITE, NOW BOOKING LATE SUMMER/FALL 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.

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'.

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.

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

  • 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.

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!

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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.

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
