About the property

2 Bedrooms with queen, king, 2 Full Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

The property at 73B Chivas Lane, Seagrove Beach, FL 32459, is a 2 BR 2 BA unit in a 4-plex building. I have one unit, the lower level unit on the 'B' side of the building is the Western side. This is a non-smoking unit. Full cable TV with extra TV in the master bedroom and flat screen TV's in the living room.

As you arrive (see photo) this building looks like a big house, but it is actually 4 units, the unit in the photos is on the right half of the building (west) as you drive in, lower level unit. The building is build on pilings to elevate it above the dune so each unit has a great view. I have more photos and if you email me I can give you a complete description.

Note that I have another VRBO® listing #1113, check this out too.

Best Place on the Beach!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 2 weeks in the upper unit, 73A, and loved every minute of it! All meals on the deck, watching the sun rise in the east, and set in the west. Saw dolphins several mornings, and on one early morning walk i even saw a pair of bald eagles! Perfect location halfway between Destin and Panama City Beach. So close to the water that a football could very well be thrown from the deck to the water's edge! Water is perfectly clear and Caribbean blue in color, and just doesn't get any better than this. Phil was easy to work with, as was the rental company. The house itself was great, plenty of room, with all the comforts of home. We are already planning another trip back here, as soon as possible! (fyi - there are a lot of stairs, so if mobility is an issue, this would not be the place for you.)

Best spot in the panhandle

  • 5 of 5

This was my second trip to Seagrove this year. Stress and constant election news just made me need somewhere calm and relaxed and I knew Phil had just the place. I love this house. I have now stayed in two different units. This time I was in the upper unit. It meant more steps but the view was worth the climb. The spindles in the railing have been replaced with glass so you have a perfect, unimpeded view of the sand and surf. This beach is never busy. There are lots of very expensive houses around and no tall high-rise buildings to generate a big noisy crowd. The rental price is fantastic for a unit right on the beach! The unit is really, really large and well-laid out for vacationers. Phil is the very best owner I have ever worked with. I appreciate him more and more each time I rent from him and Gary at the rental office is also great. I am already thinking about which week next May I want to come back--if I can wait that long! Thanks so much, Phil and Gary!

Best Price, Best Beach

  • 5 of 5

This place was awesome and my entire family thoroughly enjoyed the week here. It was clean, great location, beautiful view, excellent price and a fantastic uncrowded beach!! The only problem we encountered was the fitted sheet in the master bedroom being too small, so it had to be fixed every morning because it only covered the pillow top part of the mattress. (not that it would stop me from staying there again) There were a lot of stairs to get to the upper unit, so be prepared- but it was well worth it to be on the top floor. If you stay here bring small trash can liners and detergent for a front load washer so you can be fully prepared.

I will absolutely stay here again, and we are already talking about returning ASAP!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for posting this nice review. Since I do not solicit reviews from my guests, it is especially meaningful when a guest takes the time to provide a positive comment on their own initiative. Phil Youngberg

A beautiful week!

  • 5 of 5

I have rented from this owner, Phil, for many years and he is THE BEST! This condo is really large and beautiful! The beds are exceptionally comfortable! The water pressure is powerful and the temperature nice and hot making baths and showers relaxing or stimulating depending on what you want at the moment. The master bath has a huge tub. I only stay in places right on the beach and this is just a few steps away. All in all, you cannot beat this condo for the location and the very reasonable price! Phil has other great properties on the beach also. Thanks so much, Phil! I WILL return!

Great view, improvements needed

  • 3 of 5

Pros: Great view, nice clean bathrooms, well-equipped kitchen, very clean inside, convenient location

Cons: railing on outdoor balcony had many rotten spindles (dangerous for kids), sunrise to sunset construction noise next door and men on scaffolding outside our window (not disclosed when we booked), TOO MANY STAIRS!

We booked chivas upper, and there were 4 flights of stairs to reach the unit, 39 steps.

All beds were squeaky. Master bedroom had linens provided, but needed deep pocket sheets that would stay on the bed.

Red velvet chairs belong elsewhere, as they were not comfortable to watch tv, but were needed to seat six. Glass top stove cracked, but able to use two burners.

Owner's Response: I called this guest to address her concerns and to see if there was anything we could do to make it right for her. She had 2 basic issues, the construction next door and the number of stairs. There is a new house just completed next door to the west and over the past 4 months we have disclosed this to all the guests, but I assumed the construction was finished. They are painting the house, and unknown to me, they are building a second structure up closer to the road, I was not aware of this until she checked out. We repaired the spindles, had she called this in to our property manager they would have addressed this on the spot. This guest was in the upper unit due to a cancellation during the very busy spring period. She knew she was in the upper unit so there would be stairs but I did not count the steps for her. I had a very pleasant conversation with her, she said was pleased with the unit overall. We provided a video for her of the interior of the unit before she booked. I plan to address all her issues as best I can and we are replacing the cracked stove top today.

Unbeatable location for beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our family goes to the beach to experience the ocean, the sand, the waves, and nature. This unit was just what we had hoped it would be and so much more. The house is directly on the beach with stairs leading down directly to the sand. The views are amazing with the ocean visible from 2 full sides of the main living area. This is not a crowded area of the beach so we did not have to hassel with crowds, yet the location gives you easy access to all that is in this area. We enjoyed eating the majority of our meals on the deck while watching and listening to the ocean. Another small deck off the master bedroom was a great place to sit and relax with a view of the ocean as well as a view to the side of amazing sunsets. We stayed in the upper unit of this side of the house and we were more than pleased with the furnishings. Everything was clean and many features had been updated from the pictures we had received. The master shower was great! Our family of 5 had plenty of room in this unit. The pictures on the website and the pictures emailed to us do not begin to show how wonderful this house is. Everyone we dealt with was so helpful and accommodating. If we had to state something to be improved, the only thing we could suggest is a new mattress for the bed in the master bedroom. Other than this, we would not change a thing. Hope to be back in the future!
