Cracker Jack is designed to allow you to relax and refresh…Located on Scenic Route 30-A in Santa Rosa Beach. Scenic
30-A is considered by many to be the Monterrey of the east. The road is a spectacular 18-mile journey of beautiful beaches, sidewalks, architecture, restaurants, fishing, kayaking, biking, walking and shopping.
What makes Cracker Jack Special?
We think it begins with a lot of attention, care and love. The owners, Jamie & Susan worked to incorporate the things you expect and don’t expect while vacationing at the beach. The walls are finished with a Ralph Lauren palette of Caribbean colors that soothe your senses; furniture is simple and comfortable; towels are oversized and soft; and “Club Cracker” in the tower is a magnet for kids (big and small). Hooks are everywhere to just hang your stuff with ease. The goal was to make you feel comfortable like home, but with a true beach experience.
Where on Scenic 30-A is Cracker Jack?
Cracker Jack is located in Old Florida Village within the city of Santa Rosa Beach (within walking distance of Gulf Place). The village is made up of 75 distinctive, architecturally rich homes with a planned Retail/Loft entrance that will be similar to the nearby Watercolor Community. The Village has two community pools. The streets are made of pavers, special pavement and stone. Green space is throughout the community. There is only one road into the neighborhood which creates a nice private feeling for adults and children.
Tell me more about the Cracker…
The natural beauty of Old Florida Village is very evident in the backyard. Hidden Lake fills up your back view and creates wonderful breezes. The morning sun rises above the lake and breakfast or morning coffee/tea on the deck seems to taste better.
The front of Cracker Jack can create a challenge! Which deck to sit on to watch the lazy day go bye? One of the pools is less than 50 yards away. A wireless Internet system works throughout the entire house. You can even surf the web at the pool.
There are three levels to enjoy at Cracker Jack. On the first level is a guest room painted in Bimini Blue with a balcony facing the pool and beautiful Village architecture. This room was designed with two single beds to give room assignment flexibility. There is a full bathroom directly adjoining.
The kitchen is efficient and functional. The kitchen is outfitted with all the tools you will need - from making morning coffee/tea to a seafood feast (Across the street from OFV is a fresh seafood market). Our family loves cooking and you will find a selection of cookbooks in the kitchen for inspiration. The Florida Room has a lime green sectional couch that is soft and comfortable for those inside days. A large television with cable is ready for clicking.
However, you will notice a well-stocked bookcase filled with the best from Grisham, Collins, etc – take one of the books off the shelf and start reading. Better yet, take the book outside to read on the deck. You are welcome to borrow/take a book but we ask that you add another book for others to enjoy.
Travel up the stairs and you will find a mini-master suite that has a queen size bed with full private bathroom and balcony. The mini-master is decorated with a vibrant yet soothing caribbean color. The hallway is lined with hooks and Palm Tree art.
There is a washer and dryer on this level to handle all the crews needs. Walk into the Master, close the door and create your own mini-spa. The view of the lake is perfect from the Master. We incorporated an outdoor curtain to give compete privacy on the balcony. The chaise lounge on the deck invites you to read a book, watch the birds in the lake or take a nap on the deck & feel like you are really on vacation.
The bathroom has a full tub and separate shower with a SPA like atmosphere. The king size bed has an extra padding to ensure a comfortable nights rest. In the morning, the sun rises beautifully over the lake.
On the second floor hallway you will notice a sign pointing upwards to Club Cracker. Club Cracker is loaded with fun for kids of all ages.
Two sets of bunk beds with large drawers below to store all the kids gear, large 36” television, futon couch that can sleep two, sitting area to draw or play your favorite game, bean bags and a lots of fun.
One wall is decorated in red with three skim boards. Views of the pool and lake… This is truly a separate environment for kids, which allows a quieter environment for adults on the first level. Remember to bring your favorite DVD’s, CD’s, X-Box or Game Cube…
Where is the Beach?
The beach is a short stroll away (takes about 5 minutes to walk). We have a 4 wheel cart to hold all your essentials that can be pulled to the beach to make your beach experience more enjoyable. There is a clean restroom located at the beach along with outdoor shower, picnic tables and grills, and is complete with Lifeguards & Flag system for your added peace of mind.
Did we mention Restaurants?
One of the charming elements of 30-A is that there are no national food chains allowed. When you go to the beach you want to experience something different from your hometown. Well, you are in for a treat…Within walking distance there are a handful of different restaurants of diverse flavors and budgets and a wonderful fresh seafood market. We are here to help you plan your vacation, so please ask us about our favorite places to eat!
Entertainment and Shops!
Gulf Place is 4/10’s of a mile from Old Florida Village. From April to September there is a free concert every Sunday night. Take a walk along the beach to Gulf Place and enjoy and evening of music. Cracker Jack is also a walk away from a Nail Spa, Drug Store, Coffee Shop, Bike Rentals, Retail shops.....There is so much more. You have to come down here to enjoy and explore…
We look forward to your call and welcome you to The Beaches of South Walton.

We are a family of four and LOVE the beach. From the moment we started vacationing at Santa Rosa Beach, we knew we were home...
Our house is perfect for families. It is a short walk to the beach, is located in a private and safe neighborhood with pools and is close to shops, restaurants, and more. We love biking along the beach trail, heading over to Seaside for ice cream or walking the wharf in Baytown. There is so much to love about Santa Rosa- so much to do, or not to do. This is the one place we can truly relax and live each day as it comes.....
One of our favorite rituals is stopping at GoatFeathers seafood market (across the road) and buying fresh fish to grill or steamed shrimp to take to the beach for sunset...
We have so many favorite activities we would love to share with you but probably the best is heading back to the house at the end of a fun beach day and chilling on our back deck....
