About Christie Derrick

Hello from the Derrick Family!

Our family loves to spend relaxing, stress-free vacations in our comfortable and very family friendly home.

We wish we could live in Seagrove year round, but since that's not possible, we'd love to share our home with you!

Christie Derrick purchased this house in 2008

Why Christie Derrick chose South Walton

We chose Seagrove for its beauty and laid back family atmosphere. You may prefer to spend every day of your vacation relaxing beside the crystal clear blue ocean on the powdery white sand, or you could stay busy enjoying the many amenities in Seagrove and the neighboring communities of Seaside, Watercolor, Rosemary, or Grayton. A few things we enjoy are shopping, tennis, golf, restaurants, fishing, and water sports. Our family's favorite activity is riding bikes on the 19 mile paved bike path back and forth to Seaside, Watercolor, Rosemary etc. There are plenty of activities for all ages!


Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Relaxing and Refreshing~

  • 5 of 5

Luna Del Mar is well maintained with plenty of room yet cozy at the same time. The pool and patio are spacious and relaxing. The beach is so close, but the street is peaceful and feels secluded. The owner was wonderful and very attentive to detail. I would absolutely recommend Luna Del Mar for your beach vacation.

2015 fall break

  • 5 of 5

The house was in a good location for going to beach and biking. Loved having the pool for the kids and when the adults did not want to go to the beach. Loved the area all around. Great place to spend 12 days. We come back to Seagrove we will look to stay here again. Christie is such a pleasure to work with.

Perfect beach house, pool, and location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying in this home, but it won't be our last! The location is ideal for those quick walks to the beach. The pool was perfect for the warm nights. I really appreciated the new appliances in the kitchen. You can certainly tell the owners take great pride in their home and keep it in tip top shape! We did not want to leave but look forward to coming back again. Thanks for everything! *****

Spectacular Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful Spring Break staying in Luna Del Mar. Our two families of four fit perfectly with the kids thrilled to all get to sleep in the "bunk room" together. It was a great location and had everything we needed to enjoy the area. A very easy two minute walk (at the most) to the beach on a nice path. The kids were in the swimming pool and boogie boarding in ocean waves nonstop all week. We took chairs to the beach each night to watch the sunset while the kids played in the powdered sugar sand and ran their little hearts out. The beach area at the end of the path is in a very nice location away from the busier area of Seagrove so we always had plenty of room to spread our blanket, chairs and beach toys. We even saw a bunch of dolphins swimming in the waves near shore on our last day.

We rented two bikes from one of the many bike rental shops close by and took turns exploring the area which was especially easy to do with the paths along 30A.

By far this was one of the most relaxing and enjoyable vacations we have had.

Walked on the beach every morning, drank coffee and cocktails on the porch and delicious area restaurants to chose from for every meal. Thanks you Christie for making our stay perfect! We were all sad to leave!

Cute Beach House!

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time at Luna del Mar! The house is comfortable & cute with wraparound porches, had everything that we needed, ample parking, and a nice bonus - the swimming pool. It's also well-located with a very short walk to the beach and an easy 20 min bike ride into Seaside. Christie was great to work with - made it so easy! I'd recommend Luna del Mar as a great beach house in which just to hang out & relax.

Definitely a Beach House

  • 3 of 5

The pictures in this listing are little misleading. There's a very large blue condominium complex right next to the house. The walk to the beach isn't bad but it does take you up and down a hill, so the wagon was convenient for carrying beach toys, coolers, etc... If you have more than one vehicle, you'll have to park one behind the house by the pool. The entrance to the driveway is down a gravel road with tight bushes and tree limbs on each side. The pool was a little small but was perfect my little family of 4. The beach toys and folding chairs were a big hit for all of us. Not to mention, saved us from having to buy or rent these items. The house itself needed some repairs. I think since we got in at the end of the season, it was probably beat up a little (some stove burners didn't work, BBQ grill grate was rusted through, light bulbs were out in some of the rooms and only a couple of the exterior lights worked). The owner was nice, responsive and assured us that these items would be repaired for the next renters but that didn't do much for our stay. All in all, the pool is nice, the location to the beach and restaurants is okay. If everything gets fixed, I would recommend this house to others.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your recent stay and for taking the time to review the property. I'm sorry to hear the house needed some repairs during your stay. I appreciated you sending me an email the day you checked out alerting me to the one stove burner not working, the bbq grill grate needing to be replaced, and the light bulbs that were burned out. As soon as you left, I took care of all these items and would have been more than happy to send maintenance to the house during your stay had you alerted me to this before you left. I keep my houses in excellent shape. The house is currently undergoing several upgrades including all new kitchen cabinets, appliances (including stove), interior being repainted, and the carpet and tile is cleaned twice a year - once in the spring and again in the fall. There is a brand new dining table and some new den furniture in the house, as well as all new flat screen TV's. I have rented this property since 2008 and you are the first to mention anything but positive comments about the pool and the walk to the beach. We have one of the few (if not the only) public beach accesses in the 30A area that has no steps or boardwalk to get to the beach. I'm glad you enjoyed using the wagon, chairs and beach toys that we provide for all our guests. I'm not surprised to hear you enjoyed the pool as that is usually a highlight for my guests, and I typically have up to 8-10 people in the house at a time. Our pool is actually good-sized for 30A, roughly 24 by 12 feet plus a spa feature. Everyone has different expectations, but as is evident from my past reviews, this house is very popular and well maintained. I work to provide impeccable service and attention to my guests before and during their stay. UPDATE FEB 2015: new cabinets and appliances installed (see photos on listing). Interior painting scheduled for March 2015.
