Seacrest Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Redecoration completed in January '15 - beautiful and spacious with flat screens in every bedroom and tons of storage! Our cottage is in the Cottages at Camp Creek, a community of 34 Key West-style homes between Seaside and Rosemary Beach on beautiful County Highway 30-A. At Wish You Were Here, spend the day at the beach, it's only 400 steps from the front door via our community's private beach access!. When you've had enough sand and surf, it's an easy transition to fun in the large 7500 sq ft pool with heated spa that anchors our community. Relax with a beverage on the huge covered porch nestled among the native trees while the steaks are sizzling on the Ducane Weber gas grill.

Our 3 bedroom, 2 bath cottage sleeps 7 comfortably. The spacious King master suite has a full bath, 32' Wifi enabled flat screen TV, and tons of storage in the closet. The Queen bedroom has a 29' Wifi enabled flat screen TV and plenty of closet space. The Bunkbed room a twin bunkbed with a pull-out trundle. Threre's a 19' flat screen TV, DVD, and XBox with lots of movies and games for the kids. We have installed brand new carpet in all bedrooms for 2016.

Wish You Were Here features a spacious open living plan. The state-of-the-art entertainment center in the living room includes a 50' flat screen TV, and internet ready DVD player which already has access to Netflix so the family can instantly choose from hundreds of movies and TV titles at no additional cost. Hook up your iPod to the Onkyo sound system and listen to your favorite music with crisp clarity through the Bose speakers. The fully-equipped gourmet kitchen has granite countertops and stainless steel applicance- the fridge and dishwasher are brand new! Enjoy your coffee from the Keurig coffee maker, or use the traditional style coffe maker if you prefer. The dining table seats eight - enjoy long family dinners here or a quick snack at the kitchen bar where there are 4 more chairs. Laundry time's a breeze with the full-size Whirlpool Duet washer and dryer.

Hop on one of the cottage's six multi-speed bikes and pedal down the famous scenic 30-A walking/biking path that hugs the Gulf of Mexico for 19 miles - it passes right in front of our community! Explore the funky art shops, eclectic clothing stores, and incredible variety of restaurants and bars in Seacrest, Rosemary Beach, Seaside, and all along 30-A. Scout the fun shops at Pier Park in Panama City Beach, the Premium Outlet shops in Sandestin, or play 18 at one of our 6 golf courses - all are nearby. Wish You Were Here!

About Faheem & Cissy Khan

We are a family of 4 from Lewisville, TX. We have been coming to 30A for over 10 years...we have been lucky to visit many beaches around the world, and there's truly no place like this...miles and miles of sugar white sand and emerald green to turquoise water.

Faheem & Cissy Khan purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Faheem & Cissy Khan chose South Walton

Wish You Were Here is in a small community, and our house is only 400 steps to the beach! We fell in love with the 'Florida cottage' architecture with the tin roof and huge shady porch. There's something special about rain on a tin roof, and on breezy nights we can sit on the porch and hear the waves crashing on the beach.

We love the location of our house. It's about 1.5 miles east to the Rosemary Beach town square - we ride bikes to the Sunday Farmer's Market and our kids walk or ride bikes there to get a Fro-Yo and hook up with friends they've met on the beach. About the same distance west is the brand new, very unique venue "The Hub" - several casual dining choices and multiple "hang-out" spaces for watching sports events and live music. We are about 6 miles from Seaside - a longer bike ride but a great trade-off for a 'snack' from on of the food trucks there!

Our area of 30A is less populated and less dense than Rosemary Beach and Seaside. We love that the beach never feels 'crowded', and the kids love that crowds are a just a stroll away.

What makes this cottage unique

We have poured our hearts into making Wish You Were Here a beautiful and comfortable vacation home. We know there are lots of choices in our area. We think the casual, fun elegance of Wish You Were Here - from the soothing, sophisticated colors to the unique artwork and furniture pieces is perfect for relaxing, enjoying the beautiful area, and creating special memories.

Wish We Were Still There!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for opening your beautiful beach home to us! We had a wonderful week. I instantly fell in love with your back porch and swing and was out there quite a bit! I will miss having my coffee out there tomorrow morning! You have thought of everything to make our stay comfortable - right down to the Keurig and lighted makeup mirror! The house is so tastefully decorated and incorporates great local art - it inspired us to go to Seaside's Art Crawl and do some shopping! The pool was just a few steps from the porch and the beach access was an easy walk. Camp Creek is such a wonderful little community - we hope we can return many times! My child got a little weepy this morning when we left. To be honest, I wanted to cry too! None of us wanted to leave!

Couldn't have been better

Wish You Were Here vacation cottage met all our expectations and then some! The community where the cottage is located was quaint and unique. We loved starting our mornings off with coffee on the large front porch surrounded by a canopy of trees. The porch swing was the icing on the cake! It was a very short walk to the white sandy beach and only a few steps to the community pool. The entire cottage was immaculately clean and just the right size for our family of six to enjoy. It was conveniently located right down the road from Alys Beach as well as Rosemary Beach to which we visited regularly. The use of their bicycles made our trek just that more enjoyable. Our two week stay flew by in a blink of an eye. Looking forward to another two in 2017!

Perfect for families!

  • 5 of 5

Wish You Were Here was incredible. We have 3 children, ages 8, 5, and 3, and this cottage was perfect for them, us, and my parents who accompanied us on this vacation. The bunk bedroom fit all 3 kids perfectly, and the two other bedrooms were perfect; ample closet space and incredibly comfortable beds/bedding. The cottage was clean and beautifully decorated, and had everything needed for our cooking and bbq needs. The large deck was perfect for eating meals or just relaxing; my kids spent a lot of time out there playing card games and/or reading. The pool was INCREDIBLE. Never crowded, perfect temperature (and by end of day. too warm!), with plenty of chairs. We actually spent more time in the pool than the beach. Beach access was easy and I felt comfortable crossing 30A with my 3 children (this had been a huge concern, as we've only ever stayed right on the ocean, but it was no problem at all). Faheem and Cissy provided lots of pool/beach toys, so no need to bring your own, including boogie boards. This cottage is close to everything, including Rosemary Beach, where we tend to spend most of our time, and The Hub, which has great food/entertainment. Faheem was very quick to answer questions and provide assistance, and overall, in the 8 years we've been renting through VRBO, this was by far the best rental we've had. We can't wait to go back next year!

We just returned from our stay at "Wish You Were Here".... Such a wonderful experience. The house is lovely, well maintained and very comfortable. Access to the beach is very easy, including available chair service at a cost (which we found ideal). We have recent experience with staying in the lovely town of Rosemary Beach, yet we prefer the privacy and lack of crowds on the beach near Wish You Were Here. Rosemary Beach and Aly's Beach are a short bike ride away; the bikes were included with the cottage. We look forward to a return visit very much!!

We loved the property and the house. Decorating was a nice surprise. We enjoyed the quiet property and the easy access to the beach. The kitchen had all the possible gadgets and cooking was great. We loved the grill and the deck to relax on. Bedding, bath, kitchen - the entire cottage was a delight. My only one desire is that the community pool would have been heated. It was our first time as retired snowbirds and we were very happy to stay in this lovely cottage
