Overview

Seacrest Beach House Rental Photos and Description

5 BR/4 BA, 3 King/2 Queen & bunks – Cottages at Camp Creek

Note: 2015 Spring Break and Summer rentals are from Sunday to Sunday to ensure you miss the Saturday move in traffic and long grocery store lines -- and have a full weekend to enjoy the festivals, farmers markets, and other activities the area has to offer.

Looking for the perfect balance between a quiet, peaceful vacation spot and easy access to the beach, shopping, dining, and activities that South Walton is famous for? You’ve found it. Solar Therapy is a three story beach cottage with panoramic gulf views located on Scenic Highway 30A situated between Rosemary Beach and Seaside/Watercolor in the quaint family-friendly community of Cottages at Camp Creek. With only 32 homes in the neighborhood, private deeded beach access, and just a few steps to our world-famous white sandy beaches, you’ll find the serenity you’re looking for. Throughout the 26 miles of paved walking and biking trails on 30A, you’ll find some of the best casual and fine dining, fishing, and golf around. Water parks, amusement parks, unique shopping venues, and local festivals are within 30 minutes in Destin and Panama City Beach.

Special note to our guests: As frequent travelers, we appreciate the little things that make us feel right at home no matter what time zone we’re in, so we’ve upgraded the king and queen beds with new mattresses and cool gel memory foam mattress pads, outfitted the kitchen with gourmet tools and cookware, and selected designer furnishings – from Vizio HDTVs and Ballard Designs, Pottery Barn and West Elm furniture to Tommy Bahama and Egyptian cotton bedding – with comfort and convenience in mind.

Space for everyone

Two oversized king master bedrooms complement the first floor, each with a king bed, large flat panel TV, and ensuite bathroom. The first is furnished with gorgeous West Indies style furniture, luxury bedding, a cozy chair and ottoman for curling up with a good book, and double French doors lead to a secluded, private porch with cushioned wicker rockers perfect for gazing at the gulf waters. The second master is furnished in classic beach house style with a traditional flair, including luxury bedding and extra closet space – plus floor space for a pack & play for a little one. On this level, you’ll also find a laundry room and a storage closet complete with a wagon, beach chairs, pool noodles, a cooler, flashlights for nighttime beach walks, and all of the toys you need for a great day in the sand and surf!

When you walk into the sunny, wide-open kitchen, dining and living space on the main floor, you may have a tough time choosing between lounging on the sofa to watch a movie on the 50 inch wall-mounted TV, cozying up to the breakfast bar for an impromptu cocktail party with friends in the gourmet kitchen (complete with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and an ICEMAKER!), or gathering the kids for a round of Uno at the dining table that seats 10+. The room is wrapped with windows and double French doors leading to spectacular gulf views from the 20-ft covered porch, so perhaps sinking into the outdoor sofa for a nap will help you decide. You’ll also find a large bedroom with two queen beds and a flat panel TV, and a full bathroom on this level – perfect for those who like to enjoy their vacation all on one floor.

The kids will love having a space of their own in the third floor tower bunk room for three complete with TV, video and board games, and their own private covered porch that overlooks the neighborhood and community pool. On the gulf side of the cottage, an extra special retreat awaits guests. Furnished in beachy blue and white, this king bedroom includes a private covered porch and one of the most glorious gulf views this side of 30A. A full bath completes the third floor.

Everything you need for a perfect beach vacation -- inside and out

Our pristinely clean, smoke-free cottage is well appointed with many extras to make your stay even more special. You’ll enjoy 10 foot ceilings with transom windows above the doorways, beautifully tiled floors, and beautiful views through the many windows. The kitchen is fully stocked with a coffee maker, blender, slow cooker, toaster, drinkware and wine glasses, dishes and silverware for 16 plus casual dishes for the children or a romantic beach picnic. Technology lovers will appreciate the speedy internet connection, free Netflix movies, and wifi-enabled TVs. Outside, you can take a dip in the 75 foot long pool or hot tub, never crowded and just 20 yards from your back door. You’re steps away from palm-tree-lined access to the beach, which is rarely busy in this area. Have bicycles delivered to your door and take a short bike ride or walk to Alys Beach, Rosemary Beach, and more. Plus, easy access to Publix and other shopping (without the Seaside traffic!). An outdoor shower at the home’s entrance makes it easy to wash away the sand at the end of a sun-drenched, fantastic day!

You’ve found it. The perfect gulf-view home for your beach vacation. Book today.

About Terry and Katie Allen

We're the Allens, and we live near Atlanta GA. We've lived in the southeast for about 20 years, and love coming to this part of the country for 'beachy' vacations. Between the two of us, we have 5 kids, ranging from 13-25, so space on vacations is always important to us.

Terry and Katie Allen purchased this house in 2013

Why Terry and Katie Allen chose Seacrest Beach

We've traveled to the area many times, and visited many other beaches along the Atlantic, Gulf, Caribbean, and Hawaii. We wanted a beach home for our family to enjoy for many years, and found this perfect place far enough away from the busy traffic of Destin and Panama City Beach, and yet close enough to be convenient. Our vacation home is only a five and a half hour drive from our home in Atlanta, so it's perfect for a short getaway or a longer vacation. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

There's a few things we think you'll especially enjoy. Firstly, the location on 30A is one of the least busy, making traffic a breeze. Access to 98 is very convenient, as Watersound Parkway is only .4 miles to the east of our neighborhood.

Secondly, our private beach access is a very short walk, and because it's private, means that it's never very busy on this part of the beach. Chair and umbrella companies will be happy to set up their equipment for you, if you don't want to transport the items we've supplied with your rental.

Thirdly, we love that the size of our community is only 32 homes, with almost all of them being smaller cottages, so that the community pool is never too busy.

The benefits continue, with great places to eat, easy access to Panama city Beach, very comfortable layout in the home, bike paths, nearby golf, etc. We enjoy this section of 30A so much, and have tried to equip our home to maximize your comfort and enjoyment. We hope you'll be able to spend your vacation at our home in the near future.

Big Chill Weekend

  • 5 of 5
Five of my close friends and I recently spent a long weekend here and we all agree it was absolutely a beautiful place. Terry and Katie have done a magnificent job with the furnishings and it had all the accessories you would need for a fun time at the beach. The walk to the beach only took about five minutes and was not a problem at all. A couple of my friends are already talking about renting it for a family getaway and we all agree if we come back to this part of Florida again as a group we will definitely consider renting this property again.

We loved staying at Solar Therapy 30a! The house is really nice, beds and linens were great, very clean, updated appliances and Tv's, kid friendly. The walk to the beach wasn't bad at all and we love how close it is to Alys and Rosemary Beach. We will be renting again! Thanks for a great experience!

Just returned from our vacation yesterday! Our family and my brother's family loved this home, and it was perfect for all of us! We have 9 kids between us, ranging ages 7-17. There were just enough beds for all, and great size and location! All the reviews are true! House is clean and nicely updated! Lots of beach chairs, floats, and beach toys! Great view from the balconies with nice comfortable furniture! Kitchen was equipped with everything we needed for cooking meals, and great updated appliances! The owners were very accommodating and responsive. Owners notified me prior to arrival of a problem w/ a broken bed frame from previous renters that their handy man was already in process of taking care of! Unfortunately, cleaning crew was running about an hour and half behind, and when I notified owners of this, they immediately said they would refund our cleaning fee w/ our security deposit for our inconvenience. Pool was a great size and not crowded! Only thing that was a problem at the pool, was more comfortable pool chairs are needed! They only have the hard plastic ones! Other than that, it was perfect for our kids! Beach access was a little of a walk, but we drove car right to path when setting up tent and chairs, then drove back to walk w/ rest of our beach gear! Fireworks were absolutely beautiful on the 4th! We sat right on the non-crowded beach and watched fireworks from Alys Beach, PCB, and Seaside! In all my life, it is the first I didn't have to fight a crowd on July 4th! Perfect walking distance to shops and a few restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed the location, with short drive to PCB, while enjoying a quieter family atmosphere. We will definitely consider renting this home again and recommending to others!

Owner's Response: We are thrilled that your family enjoyed a wonderful holiday week Solar Therapy. It doesn't get much better than watching three sets of fireworks right from the beach with no crowds! We hope you'll have a chance to visit again soon.

3 Generations Loved This Place!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly researched and read all the previous reviews, selected this beautiful home and found that ALL THE GREAT REVIEWS WERE/ARE TRUE! From the spacious bedrooms to the views from the porches, the home itself was perfect for us! Lots of convenient extras and impeccably clean, we were at home right away. The location is terrific with a short walk to the beach and an even shorter stroll to the large and lovely pool. The owners were very responsive early in our relationship AND THROUGHOUT OUR STAY! This means a lot to us as we want to feel that property owners care about their homes, their bottom lines AND THEIR RENTERS! This is a great property and you can rent with genuine confidence and enjoy a truly stress-free vacation. Thanks to the Allen's for providing a home ready for a family of all ages and interests.

Well Appointed Home in Great Location

  • 5 of 5
Me and 8 other family members stayed in this home in June 2014. The Home is located right on 30A Highway just to the east of Alys Beach and Seacrest communities. First, the home is very well appointed. We found that we were able to cook meals for our large group and could find what we need in the kitchen. The other huge help was that the home had approximately 6-8 beach chairs, wagon, beach toys to use during our stay. There are 3 balconies-the 2nd level and 3rd level have ocean views. The dining room table was large and sat all 9 of us. The availability of NetFlix was loved by both the kids and adults. That was extremely helpful since we spent many days at the beach. The beach access is just a short walk from the home. The pool is clean and large enough. The location of home does require a short bike ride or drive to communities to the east and west. I think it is important to note that there is really not a "walking distance" store. Wasn't an issue for us, but something to note.My son and I rented bikes for the week from a company the owners suggested, I believe called Live Well. The company drops the biles off and picks them up, no hassle. My bike even got a flat tire-I left a message and they came to the house and took care of it. The beach in this area is clean and uncrowded. There are several state parks in the area to explore. Some activities that we did while in the area included:
1. One day everyone in our group rented bikes and we rode to Seaside-a popular upscale community with shops etc…VERY busy when we went in June.
2. My sis and I attended a standup paddle board YOGA class at the Watercolor Resort.
3. My dad and son went deep sea fishing with Ted at 30Angler in Grayton Beach (wonderful guy).
4. Went to Panama City and rented jet skis for a dolphin tour. The company we rented with took us to an island area to view dolphins and then allowed us to be on our own for some time. Just google jet ski tours.
5. Casual restaurants to recommend in the area: Angelina's, Flip Flops, Red Bar, BBQ food truck in Seaside, Donut food truck in Alys Beach, La Cocina in Seaside.

7 days of sunshine on a semi private beach in between Rosemary Beach and Seaside...it doesn't get much better that that! There isn't much else to say that hasn't already been said in previous reviews! The house and description are accurately depicted, the owner has thought of everything and the location is absolutely perfect...thanks for a great week on 30A!

Private Access beach

Located 1.6 miles West of Rosemary Beach, and 6.5 miles from Seaside, our home is on a very quiet stretch of 30A, but an easy bike ride to both locations (ask us about bike rentals). Our home is also a very short walk to a private beach access. Since it's a private access, and all the properties around are low density, it tends to be a very quiet part of the beach. If you've never been to this part of 30A before, you'll love the location, as .4 miles east of our home is Watersound Parkway, which connects 30A and Hwy 98, allowing you to bypass the heavy traffic of other routes.

Once you're on 98, groceries, shopping, dinner and other attractions are just minutes away in either Panama City Beach or Destin.
