Located just outside of Seagrove in SEACREST BEACH, Florida, it is convenient to the 30-A bike path, shops, and special activities as well as restaurants at Rosemary Beach, Camp Creek Lake, and Seaside. The sheer spaciousness and privacy in this home combine to make Caribbean Breeze a much sought after beach home by large families for a relaxing and memorable vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in your Caribbean Breeze house in Seacrest Beach from June 10-17. Overall it was a great experience. We had 17 people staying for the week. The size of the house was big enough that we weren’t on top of each other and the 8 bedrooms and 5-1/2 baths worked out well. The second kitchen was also helpful. It was great having our own pool since the weather that week was touch-and-go. Some people stayed at the pool instead of lugging everything to the beach between thunderstorms.........Overall it was great for our first big family trip

Perfect for our HUGE GROUP!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place for SO MANY PEOPLE. We really hoped to stay all together for our trip and didn't know if it was possible. Caribbean Breeze was the perfect fit. Even room for all of us during mealtimes. The owner, Brian, was so responsive to special needs before and during our trip.

We took almost daily trips into Panama City Beach to see the sights and meet up with other friends. The 15-minute drive was not bad at all. The longer we stayed, the more we fell in love with the Seacrest/Rosemary Beach area. Lovely little shops, friendly people and those pristine beaches we had nearly to ourselves.

This property is very well maintained, beautifully decorated and has ample room for even the largest of groups. Plenty of little nooks and deck space to get away from other people when you need to. The 1-minute walk (literally) to the beach is about as good as it gets.

Owner's Response: Ryan, Thank you for such a kind and generous review. The relationship between a guest and owner is two way street.

Yes, it is very nice having the beach so close. We would love to have you and your group back anytime. Next year contact us directly, we are able to offer great savings to direct contact guests and returning guests. Thank you again for choosing our home as your home for your spring break.

Great location. Had some issues with plumbing, dryer, bed and pool chairs.

  • 4 of 5

The house, as billed, is very convenient to the beach. This is the best feature of the house. There is plenty of parking which is nice. We did however have several issues:

The dryer ran for over three, almost four hours without drying a load of towels. This was fixed on Wednesday after the vents were vacuumed out.

The shower in the master bedroom had very low pressure and erratic temperature. This was reported on Monday and resolved on Thursday (really in the evening because the breaker was not turned back on and took a while for water to heat up.)

I slept in a small bedroom with a very creaky, not very comfortable bed. The owner informed me that he ordered a tempurpedic replacement which unfortunately would not be delivered until after our stay (Aug 22 - Aug 29).

All five chaise chairs poolside were cracked. Was informed by the owner that he ordered new chaise lounges but they would not be delivered until after our stay.

Other than a few other minor issues everything else was fine.

The location is great. Right across from a beach access. Could not be closer.

The house is functional. Not fancy, not junky, serves the purpose.

The owner seemed very responsive and concerned over the defects reported. I have asked for the owner to review the price we paid mostly based on the fact that the family occupying the master bedroom suite did not have full and functional use of their shower until Thursday evening which was the sixth night (of 7) into our stay.

I do appreciate the owners quick response and willingness to take steps to resolve the issue.

Owner's Response: This guest was extremely helpful, very cordial but ultimately wanted a discount. This guest contacted us late on Monday afternoon on the 3rd day of their stay. I immediately addressed all of their issues.The dryer vent was cleaned in less than 4 business hours. The hot water issue with 1 shower in the house was resolved in under 12 business hours. The chaise lounges each had a very small hairline crack in them that did not effect their use. Nevertheless I have replaced the chaises. After further inspection of the full size bed the bolts from the frame to the headboard just needed tightened. I contacted the 2 prior guests and 2 guest immediately following this guest. 3 of the 4 groups said the bed, chaises, and dryer vent were perfectly fine for their group. One group responded " The mattress was not the most comfortable mattress she had ever slept on but for a week of vacation it was nothing to be complaining about. The bed did creak when they moved some but she said it never entered her mind to complain about such things! One group did state the hot water valve was "slightly confusing" but worked perfectly fine for them during their stay once they read the guest information sheets. In their own words, this guest was to accustom "staying in top of the line places ". Luxury homes and luxury resorts are available in Alys beach, Rosemary Beach, Watersound and Watercolor at 2 to 3 times our rental rate. Our home is a traditional Florida beach home that is a great value for its quality, size, and proximity to the beach. In summary this guest was dissatisfied with the level of luxury of our home and wants a discount.

Very convenient to beach. Pool was nice and clean. Nice views from main living/dining area.

  • 4 of 5

A few of shower heads sprayed at odd angles and could have used a few more frying pans in kitchen and some of bunk beds were a little unsteady, but these were minor inconveniences. Loved most of all the easy access to beach.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We really appreciate it. You are correct the beach and pool is what it is all about. We have the worlds most beautiful sand. I am not sure what to say about the shower head angles??? We have never heard that comment before. They are pretty much standard shower heads on the wall. Past guests have commented how well the kitchen is stocked. It is possible some pans were damaged or taken by a guest by mistake. We definitely will replace fry pans if some are missing . The maintenance staff and the current guests both examined the bunk beds. They both said the bunk beds are fine. We appreciate all the information so we could make the next guest stay even better. Come back again next year. We offer discounts to returning guests. Catch "CARIBBEAN BREEZE in your "BEACHESCAPE NET"

Great house and close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a large multi generation family reunion at the house and it accommodated us all very well. The location is great and the beach is beautiful. We had a couple of very minor issues (slow draining tub and some cable tv out) and Brian took care of them immediately which we really appreciated. Loved having a pool and it was a big bonus for our family to have a little side yard to play lawn games on. Great house and we would definitely stay again!

Owner's Response: Stephanie, Sorry for the troubles. You were amazingly patient. I appreciate your understanding that just like at your own home, maintenance things occur from time to time. Even with the routine preventative maintenance we perform things do happen. The crazy thing the exact same Mediacom Cable splitter/booster failed at our 6 bedroom house the very next week. It had to be weather related. We would love to have you back again. You were incredible guests. Contact us directly next year. We offer discounts to returning guests. Have great summer, thank you for sharing your family vacation in our home. Brian and Barb

Great Family Vaca

  • 5 of 5

It really is 25 yards to the beach which is nice and the beach is beautiful. Pool is nice. We had 22 people in the house and it worked. Living room TV has Netflix which, the kids liked. Kitchens were well equipped. Needs new pillows. Owner is super responsive and gets back to you immediately with questions. We had 7 cars in the lot and it worked....We all left our keys in a bowl incase you needed to move someone else's car.

Owner's Response: Rebbeca, Thank you so much for the 5 Star review. Yep, the house is indeed 25 yards to the beach access. Being so close is so very convenient. Our beach is uncrowded and absolutely stunning. We do appreciate your comments on the pillows. Pillows being hard, soft, thicker, thinner, down, and foam are such a personal thing. We purchased all NEW pillows less than 6 months ago. They filled a large Chevy Tahoe ( 3 houses worth). They are actually very good quality, I was mad at my wife for spending so much on them. When we are there in August we look at the pillows again and replace those that are in need of replacing. Thank you for choosing our home for your beach vacation. Please think of us again next year, we would love to have you back. As a reminder we offer discounts for future bookings to past guests who BOOK DIRECT with us.

Great place for multi generations. Great pool. Close to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Hi Brian,

We enjoyed every minute at the house!! The pool was great and everyone is depressed that we are back home! Only because we would want to know the truth from our renters if we owned a property like yours...

basically it was the kitchen appliances. We were afraid that we would be blamed for it but the fridge had a broken shelf and the bottom stove drawer was not sitting on the bottom of the oven the right way. The dishwasher needed some work also. But overall the house was great and loved having Easter dinner at the large table. We had more than enough towels and the beach chairs were great!!! The walk to the beach was easy too! A few stairs but looked at it as a workout! Thank you for renting to us. Just wanted to add that it was a great place for our parents because we had four generations staying there and little ones can cause loud noises that at times for people of the elder generation can be well let's say not comforting.

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing our home. We appreciate guests who let us know of any items that need addressed. Sometimes things wear out and just get broken by accident. We immediately repair or replace such items. It is indeed a great house for multi generation vacations, because the older guests could retreat to a space of their very own. Next year contact us directly, we are able to offer great savings to direct contact guests and returning guests. Thank again for choosing our for your beach vacation. Brian
