About the property

Steps to Beach Access, Two story End Unit Townhome, 2 BR, 2.5 BA, Sleeps eight

Thanks for visiting.

Our property was recently renovated. That included new KING and QUEEN pillow top mattresses, all new stainless appliances, new paint, new carpet, new furniture and décor in several rooms etc. (See pictures!) The property is also a very close (~275 yards) from the beach access. To put that into perspective, you can hear the surf if there is any...... More details follow.


1st Floor

Living Room:

Sofa and loveseat, TV/VCR, movie library, Stereo/Cassette/CD Player, adjoining secluded porch with table and chairs.

Dining Room:

Dining table with seating for six. Seating for two more at the bar. Utility room with full-size washer and dryer.


Fully-equipped with new stainless appliances. Half bath off kitchen area.

2nd Floor

Master Bedroom:

King size pillow top bed, carpet, ceiling fan, TV, adjoining balcony with furniture and full private bathroom.

Guest Bedroom:

Queen size pillow top and double futon bunk bed (two on bottom, one on top), TV/DVD, carpet, ceiling fan, adjoining balcony with chairs and table, full bathroom just outside in hall.


Only 250 yards from beach. 150 yards tone of two pools, two tennis courts, nature, bike, and fitness trails, a basketball hoop, and a secluded lake with picnic area. We also supply complimentary beach equipment, adult bikes, and a reading/video library.

If condos were restaurants, Inspired by Nature at Cassine Gardens would be that quaint favorite place you would only tell best friends about because you wouldn’t want crowds to follow.

Two bedrooms and two full baths upstairs and everything else downstairs; all the basics are covered including several TVs, DVD/VCR/CD player, a sound system, washer and dryer, etc. That’s nice, but you also have the niceties of: adult bicycles, beach chairs, a video and reading library, and fun mosaic art everywhere.

Enter the front door under a magnificent magnolia. You can walk through to the back porch or climb stairs to either of the second story balconies if you’re ready to sit and enjoy the nature sanctuary. You can almost touch the trees within the cypress grove as they whisper more quietly than pines.

Ferns and grapevine almost hide the tiny footbridge, which is part of the nature and fitness trails winding through the established community. Less than a block behind #128 is one of two community pools, and tennis courts.

Nearby, hidden within the cypress groves, is a beautiful stocked lake and several secluded picnic areas. If you’re more the beach type, head out the front door. A nearby narrow path takes you directly across the road to the bright sands and shimmering waters of the Gulf.

The kitchen has clean fresh surfaces and is fully-equipped. The living area and bedrooms are comfy and colorful with tasteful artistic décor throughout. The furniture is funky and casual chic including whitewashed cabinets and tables, overstuffed chairs, sofas, and comforters. Big blue rugs warm up the tile floors.

At Cassine Gardens #128 it’s hard to know if it’s the unique area, quick access to the Gulf, the numerous outdoor activities, or the most unusual creative mix of décor within. You may not be able to put your finger on the answer, but anybody with a speck of fun in them will enjoy trying when they stay at Inspired by Nature in Cassine Gardens.

We also own another townhome that can be rented with this property. It is Poolside Serenity. It is approximately 100 yards from this property and is VRBO ad number 802171. Please ask for details. Discounts may apply.

About Quinton

Thank you for visiting our website.

My wife Anne and our son, Quinton, purchased Inspired by Nature in 1997. My wife and I live in South Bend, IN. Our son lives in Charlotte, NC. We have come to love Seagrove Beach and Cassine Gardens so much that we purchased a second property, a beach home in Cassine in 2005. If you are part of a large group, and need two properties, or our townhome is rented please check out our beach home on VRBO. Our home is property number 223454.

Quinton purchased this townhome in 1997

Why Quinton chose Seagrove Beach

We fell in love with Seagrove Beach, especially Cassine Gardens. Seagrove was laid back and intent on not becoming commercialized like Destin or Panama City. The beaches were also incredible. The sand is powdery white and the water is an incredible emerald color almost year round. That's probably why the Gulf Coast is regularly included in the Beaches of the Year awards. As for Cassine, it offered a unique beach / serene nature setting. The homes and townhomes are spread throughout a cypress grove so the area is quiet and peaceful. We knew after visiting Seagrove that we had found our second home!

What makes this townhome unique

Cassine offers a serene nature and beach setting. It also offers two pools, two tennis courts, nature and fitness trails and a small lake with a gazebo and grills. As for our unit, we also offer two free adult bikes so that you can enjoy the nearby bike trails and free beach equipment. On top of this, the unit is only 275 yards from the beach access.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Quiet Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Cassine Gardens is a great little neighborhood tucked right off of 30A. Condo was very clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. Brand new king bed in master was very comfortable. The neighborhood was quiet and allowed my daughter and I to ride bikes, go for walks in the evenings and enjoy our stay free from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives.

We enjoyed private beach access, complimentary bike and beach chair usage. The pools were great and provided a break from the beautiful beach.

Theresa was great and very attentive to our needs. Super easy to work with and talk to. Always available when I needed her. Quinton is also very involved making sure our stay was perfect. From beginning to end this was a great experience. We use VRBO a lot and this property did not disappoint! We will definitely be returning.

Thank you Quinton and Teresa for a great vacation. Until next time!

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just wrapped up our stay and the accommodations were just right. We loved the location to the beach and the trails right by the condo. We had just what we needed and appreciated the little things, beach towels, dish soap, bikes and the NEW king size bed in the master and it was very quiet and peaceful. We will be back for sure! Teresa was so helpful too. We loved our stay!

Owner's Response: Kristin, I appreciate all the favorable comments and the five star rating!! We agree, the proximity to the beach as well as the miles of nature trails are a big difference between Cassine and other areas in Seagrove. I am glad you liked the NEW KING BED! We know how important a great night's sleep is to our guests on their vacation so I am glad it was comfortable! I also appreciate the feedback on our manager, Teresa. We know how important her service is to our guests so it is always good to hear how she is doing. Give us a call when you are ready to schedule your next visit to Seagrove Beach!! Quinton

Lovely Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at this lovely condo in Cassine. It was spotless when we arrived. The condo is very well maintained, and very roomy with lots of space for our "stuff". The beds are very comfortable, and with 2 1/2 baths, never any waiting! Everything is provided for you, even beach chairs, beach umbrella,and bicycles! The area is nice and quiet, with woods and a nature trail right out the back door. And there are several wonderful restaurants within walking distance. The beautiful beach is just a short walk away. I highly recommend this property, Quinton and his team are always ready to take care of any problems right away, so never any worries you can just enjoy. Thanks Quinton, see you next year!

Highly Recommend this Beach Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fabulous time during our recent stay! We were extremely happy with the location and the cleanliness of the townhome. To top it all off the property manager was amazing and was available to answer questions and help us as needed since we were first timers to the area. The beach is a short 5 minute walk and the trails and pool in the community were a huge bonus! Plus, the townhome had beach gear and bikes to use so we didn't have to rent these, another bonus. We could not have picked a better place to spend our wedding anniversary and we will definitely be back!

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time and were extremely pleased with the cleanliness and well maintained townhouse. Everything was there to make our stay comfortable! Location was ideal, 30 minutes to Destin and 30 minutes to Panama City Beach. Five minute walk to the beach and one minute walk to the pool! We are looking forward to booking this again in the near future.
