Overview

Seacrest Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

From the moment you set foot on the spacious front porch you’ll feel transported to another place. Time slows down as you all settle in to the casual, beachy pace of our home, dubbed “Ahh’s in the Sand”. Though located smack in the middle of everything on locally-famous 30A, the house is tucked away in a quaint neighborhood filled with funky Florida architecture on a very quiet street. You’re less than 100 yards from the beautiful Seacrest Beach Pool, and a quick walk/bike or FREE neighborhood Tram Ride to one of the most incredible Beaches you could ever find. Dine and shop at Rosemary Beach, Alys Beach, or the Villages of South Walton, all just a short stroll down 30A. After a quick stop at a nearby grocery store, you could literally park your car and never move it again until the time you have to leave. Beach Bikes are available to rent through a quick phone call, so you and your group can be pedaling along the 18 mile bike path that runs parallel to 30A in no time.

”Ahh’s in the Sand” boasts an expansive living area, with an open living/dining/kitchen where your whole crew can gather. The home was professionally decorated and won first place in the 2005 Parade of Homes; it has undergone additional upgrades since. Full of personal touches and amenities, you’ll quickly settle in and relax.

The first floor Master Bedroom features a King Bed and en suite bathroom with large soaker tub and walk-in shower. The second floor boasts two more bedrooms, one with a Queen Bed, and the other with a Queen bed along with XL twin Bunks that are 5" longer than usual so that even adults can sleep comfortably on them. Each bedroom has its own sink area and shares a full bath between them. The third story houses the fun Crow’s Nest where the kids can watch movies of their choosing and extra guests can sleep on the Futon Bed . Watch the beautiful sunsets or view the stars from the balcony that surrounds the Crow’s Nest – it just can’t be beat! With large HDTV flat screen TV’s and cable access in the family room, Master Bedroom and the Crow’s Nest, along with Wi-Fi throughout the house, everyone can remain plugged-in to whatever or whoever is important to them.

When it's meal-time, the kitchen delivers. With built-in dishwasher, electric oven and range, microwave, and refrigerator/freezer with ice and water in the door, meal prep is a breeze. Add to that the multiple spacious counter tops and the fact that your gas grill is just steps away on the screened back porch, well it'll be easy to please the crowd. The dining room seats 8 easily, while three more can pull up to the counter nearby.

”Ahh’s in the Sand” is beautifully landscaped, with a deep, shaded front porch set back away from the street so that you can watch all the goings-on while enjoying refreshments and conversation with the folks you’re with. Drink your morning coffee out on the porch and wake up to the feel of the ocean breeze. Now that's livin'!

But the reason you come down here are the Beaches, right? “Windex and Sugar” – that’s how the color of the Water and Sand have been described along the Emerald Coast, this slice of paradise that comprises the northwestern panhandle of Florida. The Beaches of South Walton have long been popular vacation destinations for those seeking a relaxing beach getaway, far from the bustle and crowds found elsewhere. After your day filled with sun and sand, enjoy the restaurants here in Seacrest Beach or walk on over to Rosemary Beach for a casual snack, or dress up for dinner. Come and see for yourself - it’s all right here!

Please note - In consideration for all of our guests, this is a non-smoking home. We do not allow smoking inside or outside the property. Thank you for your consideration.

About Katie Titus

We live in the Kansas City metro area, so we relish visiting the sun and sand - especially during the colder months. That Florida sunshine and beautiful beach have a way of lulling all your cares away!

We have two kids who are away at college. I’d say we were empty nesters, but we have two sweet rescue greyhounds at home who get most of mom’s attention when everyone else is away.

Katie Titus purchased this house in 2012

Why Katie Titus chose Seacrest Beach

We came to this area on vacation a while back, prompted by a number of friends who recommended a visit here. Everyone said that this area is absolutely gorgeous, and raved about the beaches. When we finally came down here we were blown away by the beauty of the area. We absolutely fell in love with Seacrest Beach in general, and this house in particular , as it has so much character and charm We are looking forward to spending many happy vacations with our friends and family, and sharing it with folks like you. With Destin's NW Regional Airport just 45 minutes away, and Beaches Airport in Panama City less than 20 minutes from our front door, the trip is easier than ever.

What makes this house unique

We love the quiet bustle of the neighborhood, seeing families pedaling down the road together and packing up the tram for a day at the beach. This neighborhood is very family-oriented, from the Tram Drivers to the Pool Attendants and the folks who Rake the Gravel parking spaces and set up and retrieve your Trash Bins twice weekly (!!), everyone's objective is for YOU to have a wonderful time. This is a very friendly, convenient, quiet, well-kept neighborhood full of charm and conveniences.

All the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

It was our lucky day when we met Katie and Greg while renting another property in Seacrest Beach last year. We used VRBO for the last ten years all over the world and 'AHH's in the Sand' is by far our favorite house. It feels like a 'home away from home', not a rental property. We enjoyed the well stocked kitchen from the dishes to the Heckles knives.

And that Porch has just enough privacy while enjoying a glass of wine, cup of coffee or reading your favorite book. I spent a lot of pleasant crafting time in the 'Croft' a term coined by our Granddaughter. We enjoyed our escape from the Pennsylvania winter.

Our favorites:

* Happy Hour at 'The Wine Bar' in Watercolor. Excellent food

* 'The Cowgirl Kitchen' offers to go glasses of beer and wine so you can watch the sunset. Food is also good.

* Family dining is good at 'Angelina's' in Seagrove

* 'LaCocina' has excellent chips and salsa with a margarita

* Delicious desserts especially key lime pie and pecan pie at 'The Donut Hole'

* Shoppingat 'Peaches to Beaches', 'Smith's antique Mall Destin, Seafood Market, Goatfeathers.

Our stay was outstanding and would highly recommend this property if you want all of the comforts of home. A bonus is the owners are so personable and caring. This is definite a must property and we will return. This is a

Six ****** House?

Thank you Katie and Greg,

Owner's Response: Bobbie and Ron, prior to you we had never hosted "snow birds," but we've learned through you how delightful it can be!

Heaven in Seacrest

  • 5 of 5

Yet another summer vacation has come to an end and we wouldn't have chosen any other place to stay other than Ahh's in the Sand. This is the second summer in a row that we have had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful home. This place truly is the perfect house for a beautiful beach getaway. You absolutely do not need a thing when you are staying at this house. I cannot imagine going to 30A and staying anywhere else. We have a 6 year old and a 3 year old and this house is perfect for all ages. The little neighbourhood and streets are so safe and the location is convenient to so many different venues. The amazing pool is a stones throw away from the house. There are a number of restaurants within walking distance of the house and the tram ride to the beach makes this the most convenient house for anyone looking to have a completely carefree vacation. Even the restaurants and shops in Rosemary Beach and Alys Beach are within walking distance. The location of this house is beyond perfect. Working with the owner, Katie, has been an absolute pleasure and we are looking forward to our next visit!! If you are looking for comfort, ease and total relaxation on your visit to 30A, then this is where you need to stay!!

Perfect home for our family of seven!

  • 5 of 5

AHH'S in the Sand was the perfect vacation home for our family. My 20 year old son loved the crows nest and the our grown children enjoyed their rooms as well. The mastersuite is gorgeous! Our favorite area was the beautiful front porch...we started and ended each day relaxing on the cushioned white wicked furniture ...missing it now!!! The house offered everything we needed including beach essentials such as oversized towels, chairs and an umbrella. The owners were more than accommodating making sure we had an enjoyable, hassle free stay in their home. There were many restaurants within walking distance and we also enjoyed riding our bikes through the quaint neighborhood the house is located in. AHH'S in the Sand is a very special place and we certainly intend to go back in the future!

My stay at your beach home was wonderful! The home was very inviting and relaxing. The beach was pristine! Next time I come I need to come a little earlier in the season so I can enjoy the pool. Thank you for allowing me to rent your home.

Ahh's in the Sand absolutely exceeded ALL of our expectations! Everything about this house was perfect! It was comfortable, spacious, and the absolute perfect escape for our family! Our kids were in heaven! We have a 2 year old and a 5 year old and the location of the house was in walking distance to so many things the whole family could enjoy! It is the most ideal location for both the beach and the pool!! The tram service was so convenient and the drivers were AWESOME!! We most certainly are counting down the days until we can go back to Seacrest and Ahh's in the Sand! It's truly a perfect vacation home!!
