SANDY PAWS (PETS) WELCOME AT SANDY PAUSE

Seagrove Beach House Rental Photos and Description

2 Spacious Bedroom/2 Bath, Sleeps 8

Don't let the 2 bedroom tag fool you...this sweet cottage may only have 2 bedrooms, but the upstairs bedroom houses a sleeper sofa in addition to a queen bed in order to sleep a family of 4. The downstairs bedroom is also equipped with a queen bed, and there is a sleeper sofa in the living room. Both bedrooms are equipped with new flat screen tv's.

The open floor plan and living area is spacious and allows for comfortable lounging while watching huge flat screen tv. Wifi, cable, and movie channels are included, and the home has washer/dryer for your convenience.

The home also features an updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite counter-tops, solid wood cabinets, breakfast bar, microwave, and pantry. It is fully stocked and ready to be used to create wonderful meals during your stay.

When the sand and salt become too much, and quiet spot for reading is needed, there is a clean and well-kept community pool just down the street with keyed access for renters.

For those ready to enjoy the outdoors, there are several beach chairs with umbrellas for your use. There is also an affordable bike rental facility next door. One fabulous feature of this area is the 20 miles of biking/walking paths along all of highway 30-A and in more tucked-away off-road trails.

The home is located walking distance from great local shopping and dining. Public beach access is just across Hwy 30-A. The beaches in this area of Florida can't be beat! We are in close proximity to many lovely communities with additional shopping and dining opportunities like Seaside (Just voted #1 Family beach in the world by Travel and Leisure Magazine), Watercolor, Rosemary Beach, and Grayton Beach only a bike ride away.

***By the way, I get push notifications on my phone when inquiries are made in order to be able to reply quickly to questions, so kindly refrain from sending inquiries between 11pm and 7am central time. Thank you for your consideration.***

About Donna Fargason

Our family has been traveling to this area of Florida for years and years. When we saw this place for sale this past fall, we had to snatch it up. It is so close to everything we love to do, and the beach access can't be beat short of being on the beach itself.

Donna Fargason purchased this house in 2012

Why Donna Fargason chose Seagrove Beach

This property appealed to us because of it's location in wonderful Seagrove Beach, and its proximity to Seaside, Watercolor, and Rosemary Beach. The dining and shopping in the area can't be beat!! The neighborhood Gulf Mist is on a cul de sac and is occupied mostly by owners. It is well-maintained and monitored by people who know the area and care about the upkeep and reputation of the neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

This home also has a balcony upstairs and comfortable seating downstairs that allows one to enjoy the evening sunset and breeze. The firepit and courtyard are perfect for entertaining. There is also a garage and plenty of parking.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Donna,



We were so glad to find our home away from home again so pretty and welcoming. Having viewed some of the neighboring home interior pics, yours takes the cake. Also, whoever provides the cleaning, does an excellent job.



Had a wonderful time!

Wonderful, Clean, Well Appointed! Highly Recomended!

  • 4 of 5
We stayed for 3 nights (Sept 7 - 10, 2014) as a trial run after a friend who stayed here told us about the place. It was terrific. We had a wonderful time despite almost constant rain for the entire time we were there. Lovely home in a terrific area. Finding a place this nice that is this clean, well appointed, decorated beautifully, thoughtfully prepared for our arrival and pet friendly is a real score! We met many of the friendly neighbors on the street, we were across the street from the beach and close to fabulous amenities, bike rentals, restaurants and bars. The home is very centrally located, convenient to beaches and amenities. We have already booked TWO returns for later in the year.

Issues - (1) The Masterbed mattress should be replaced. The bed squeeks terribly every time one moves and the mattress has seen better days. It provides little support. My wife slept on the bed downstairs (which was great) and on the upstairs sofa to avoid a backache. Nothing a new box spring and mattress won't take care of. (2) As the previous renter indicated, the ice maker will not turn off. It fills the cavity of the freezer with ice cubes and just keeps churning them out. The drop from the ice maker to the floor of the freezer also makes a bit of a racket given it is not intended to function that way. More of a concern for the owner as sooner or later damage is going to be done to the freezer drawers and door blocked by ice. 3) There were no hangers in any of the closets, so that came as a bit of a surprise to us. Next time we will be prepared but either someone took them or there should be a notice to bring your own hangers on the rental page!

Aside from the three things above this rental would have gotten a 5 STAR. A very nice, very pleasant rental and stay for us. We commend this rental to you and we are looking forward to our future stays on this property!

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5
Very beautiful home with all the amenities we could ever ask for! We thoroughly enjoyed our stayed here and did not want to return home. The place was clean and did not smell at all like pets had ever stayed there. The master suite upstairs was beautiful and the fact that there were 2 full bathrooms in the house was a lifesaver for the three of us trying to get ready for a wedding. We were SO grateful to have chairs, umbrellas, and noodles to take down to the beach; which was very close; less then a 5 minute walk to get down to the water. Our favorite part was probably the gas fire pit on the back patio. It was easy to use and gave off the perfect atmosphere in the evenings. We absolutely want to install one just like it in our own home now!

The only issues we even had were extremely minor: The ice maker in the freezer kept overflowing; getting ice everywhere. And we could not find replacement trash bags for the tall kitchen trash bin. No big deal!

We would definitely recommend this place and would return if we ever find ourselves in the area again! Thank you for making our vacation wonderful!

Owner's Response: Kelly, thanks for the feedback. We have worked on the ice maker a couple of times. Had no idea it was overflowing. Always good to know what's having issues so I can get someone there to fix it. The housekeeper usually just leaves one trash bag and a day or 2 worth of toilet paper and paper towels. People usually go to the store and get what they need for longer stays, but it probably doesn't translate well to shorter stays. I'll be sure to add in my preparatory email that people need to come prepared for this situation or plan to go to the store. Thanks for the feedback about this as well. Glad you enjoyed your stay otherwise, and we hope you come back soon!!

Better than we even expected!

  • 5 of 5
Because we weren't able to get away for a full week, we couldn't commit to a house that had to be rented from Saturday - Saturday (like many house in/around Seagrove Beach). We didn't want to stay in any other area, so we were thrilled to find this great house. The pictures don't even do it justice. It's even nicer, cleaner, and more spacious that it looks - which is not what we expected! You cannot beat this location either. Two minutes from the front door to a chair on the beach, and you're super close to shopping, restaurants, the grocery store, and anything else you want in this area. We cannot say enough about how great our vacation was. We will definitely be back!

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at Sandy Pause. It is a lovely home furnished with comfy beach decor and all the amenities of home. We really liked the convenience to both the pool and beach. Having a bike and beach chairs to use was a bonus! We plan on returning; can't wait until next summer.

Best Ever

  • 5 of 5
I frequent the Seagrove area several times a year. This was our 12th annual girls trip and our first time to stay at Sandy Paws. We all agreed that this was the best place we have stayed. The place was clean, convenient to everything, great front porches for relaxing, great place to walk dogs, friendly and quiet neighborhood. Donna was easy to work with and made an effort to insure our stay was enjoyable. We will definitely be back!!

***Pets and their owners are welcome at Sandy Pause. Our fenced in back yard is a perfect solution for travel with your pet.***

Seagrove (address listed as Santa Rosa Beach due to its unincorporated status) is a step back in time. While neighboring areas have become crowded and over-developed, Seagrove encompasses the very unique and lovely Seagrove Beach Community located in Walton County, Florida, in the state's panhandle. It boasts more than 60 public access beaches, as well as a number of beaches located in state parks, including Grayton Beach and Blue Mountain Beach.

Eden Gardens State Park features a 19th-century-style house set amidst beautiful moss-covered oak trees. The renovated home is a showcase for the second largest collection of Louis XIV furniture in the U.S. and offers a great glimpse into the country's past.

In addition to lounging on the beach and hiking in the parks, you can rent bikes to peruse the shops, go golfing or fishing, play tennis, and go on a guided tour. Horseback riding is available at several places in the area.

After you have spent the morning or afternoon at the beach you'll want to try one of the great local restaurants, and there are numerous casual dining options, including Pickles Beachside Eatery, Louis Louis, Red Bar, Cafe 30-A, Bud & Alley's, and the Donut Hole Bakery Cafe.

For those more interested in shopping, visit Magnolia House for its jewelry, handcrafted rugs and original artwork, Mystic Porte, which is home to a variety of unique shops, Seaside and Watercolor boutiques, and the Shops of Grayton, which specializes in fine art and gifts. Silver Sands Outlet Mall is a only a short drive to Sandestin, and offers hi-end shops such as Coach, Michael Kors, Saks Off-5th, Banana Republic, J. Crew, Brooks Brothers, and more. Nearby Panama City Beach's Pier Park is a mega outdoor shopping mall consisting of over a million square feet of specialty shops and restaurants plus a 16 cinema Grand Theater.

In Seagrove, look no further than Gulf Place. This shopping and dining village is located right across from the public access beach, Ed Walline Park, and features a great selection of clothing, surfing accessories and home décor items. And for a bit of extra pampering after a long day of shopping and beachside fun, there is also a lovely day spa.
