House, 8 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 7 Baths, (Sleeps 26-30)
Family of 4 from Atlanta, Ga.
Owner purchased this House in 2007
Why Owner chose
My husband Martin and I visited the Beaches of South Walton every year for 7 years. After staying at just about every beach along Hwy 30A we found that we loved the Seacrest, Rosemary Beach area the best. It is not as crowded as Seaside and has a lot of the same amenities. It is also located within walking distance of our favorite eatery, Wild Olives! We wanted a location where our children would be safe to explore on their own and a place to build lasting memories! We have not been disappointed and I am sure your family will love it too!
What makes this House unique
We love how close the beach is to the house and the location is perfect being within walking distance of 3 different retail and entertainment centers of Alys Beach, Seacrest Beach and Rosemary Beach. Also, being nestled between the Gulf and the pedestrian and bicycle friendly corridor of 30A we feel safe to let our kids explore the area on their own the way we used to be able to do when we were kids! Our beach is so special because the dolphins love to swim there, we almost always get to see them swim and sometimes the even put on an aerial show for us! The kids love to catch crabs at night and almost every time we are there we get to experience some form of wildlife that is completely new to us. On one visit the beach was full of sand dollars. We must have found over 30 and we didn't even try that hard! Each time we visit I feel like I am going to a new place because it is always different!
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
This property is a great place for a large group, ie multigenerational group. It has a wonderful pool, 2 full kitchens as well as 8 bedrooms & 7 full baths. Beds were very comfortable & it is well maintained. Any property issues were promptly addressed.
This house was great for our large family vacation. Plenty of bed space and kitchen space was amazing for cooking all those meals. 3 min walk to the warm beaches. This place was well worth it. Hope to return soon.
Perfect Place for Extended Family
Our multi-generational family spent a fantastic week at Neptune’s Retreat. First, the location is ideal: the beach is just a five-minute walk away, and if you go the other direction, restaurants and shops are an easy walk or bike ride away. Next, the layout of the home is perfect for family members coming from different time zones and operating on different daily schedules. The early risers in our group stayed on the ground floor, and the California guests were able to sleep in on the top floor. The very best part of Neptune’s Retreat turned out to be the heated pool! It was unseasonably cold and rainy during our visit, but the grandkids swam every day in the comfortable pool. Last, the owner, LuAnn, was a delight to work with. She answered a lot of questions as I prepared for our trip, and her responses were quick and helpful. This was our family’s first visit to the Seacrest area, but it won’t be our last. We look forward to returning to Neptune’s Retreat!
Thank you Kim. You were a delight to work with. So happy you and your family enjoyed our home. Please come visit us again!
Great beach house for large families
The house was well equipped with everything we needed, including 2 fully stocked kitchens. It was great to have 2 refrigerators, 2 ovens & 3 dishwashers & an icemaker. The kids loved the arcade games & the pool was delightful. The beds were all very comfortable. The location is excellent and close to the beach. We'll be back to Neptune's Retreat on our next beach trip.
Wonderful home and location
Like many of you, sometimes you rent a good home and sometimes you get fooled by the pictures and get a less than desirable home. Neptunes Retreat is the perfect vacation home, it is made for enjoying your vacation. The location is perfect. The home has many great areas to gather, a well supplied kitchen, and each bedroom is very comfortable. Walking to the beach and having your spot with umbrellas and chairs already set up for you to enjoy the day was appreciated by my husband who becomes our beach pack mule. Everything you need and some....bikes, pool, extra kitchen, video arcade and a built in ice maker.
We highly recommended staying at Neptunes Retreat. We will rent again.
We've been renting homes in Florida for the last 8 years and this was our first time at Neptune's Retreat. We had an amazing time. By far the most accommodating home with a great location with dining and easy access to the beach. We are a large family and needed lots of space with many amenities to entertain both adults and children. The bikes and golf cart was a huge hit. I found having 2 kitchens and 2 living rooms with lots of room is exactly what we needed. Home was very clean and has that perfect comfortable/relaxing atmosphere without looking like every other beach house.
Booking was a breeze. Property manager offered lots of information about the area.
So happy we've finally found a place we can go to year after year. Neptune's Retreat...WE'RE BOOKING FOR NEXT YEAR :)
Wonderful restaurant and summer events are just minutes away. Neptune's Retreat is located off of 30-A on the Gulf side between Seaside and Rosemary Beach. Neptune's is approximately 7 miles from scenic Seaside and a 1/4 of a mile from Rosemary Beach.
There are both private and public golf courses nearby. For the athlete we have an excellent trail for biking, roller blading, running as well as walking.
Fishing, boating, sailing, amusement parks and shopping are within a few miles.
Just outside your door you can bike, roller blade or walk for miles on a safe trail adjacent to 30-A. This community is within walking distance to the shops and amenities of both Rosemary Beach and Alys Beach and a short 7 mile drive to Seaside.
