About the property

3 Story Beach House On 30A. Sleeps 10. 3 King Beds, & 2 Sofa Sleepers. Gulf View

Group Therapy is a delightful 3 bedroom (+ tower room), 3 bath beach house with two third floor balconies that sleeps 10. Our back yard abuts 30A and the front is just across from the Seacrest Lagoon Pool There is not a better location for a Seacrest Beach house. This house is a 30 second walk to the pool and a 1.5 minute walk to the beach. There is also a free tram service if you have lots of beach equipment to take to the beach or don't feel like walking. Group Therapy has 3 king beds, a queen sofa sleeper in the first floor living room, and a full sofa sleeper in the tower room. The tower room also serves as the kids' play area. There are two balconies off the tower room that are ideal for sunsets. One has a view of the Gulf and the other looks down toward the Seacrest Lagoon pool.

Seacrest Beach is right next to renowned Rosemary Beach on one side and Alys Beach on the other, which are great places to walk to in the evening. Rosemary Beach has several nice restaurants at varying price points, a coffee shop, retail shops, and the famous Sugar Shak, where you can get ice cream and candy. The communities of Seaside, WaterColor, and Seagrove Beach are just a short drive or bike ride down scenic Hwy. 30-A and are fun to visit. There is a safe bike/jogging path that runs parallel to 30-A the entire distance from Rosemary Beach to Grayton Beach (more than 18 miles).

We prefer to rent to families. We do not rent our house to students or young single adults under the age of 25 unless they are accompanied by an adult guardian or parent who remains in the house for the entire stay. Reservations made under false pretenses may be subject to forfeiture of advance rental payments and security/damage deposits. We love our beach house and hope that you will enjoy it as well and treat it as your own. We look forward to having you as our guest!

About Vacation Home Manager

We are a family from Suwanee, Georgia, just north of Atlanta.

Vacation Home Manager purchased this house in 2013

Why Vacation Home Manager chose South Walton

We had been looking for the right house for our family in the Seacrest Beach area for several months. When we saw this house and realized that its location was as good as any property in Seacrest Beach, we knew it was the right one for us. The large Seacrest Beach lagoon pool is right across the street out our front door and the beach access through Sunset Beach is just a few steps from our back door. From the third floor south side balcony we have a view of the Gulf and from the north side balcony we have a view of the pool. All things considered, the house is perfect 'group therapy' for our family!

What makes this house unique

Group Therapy is unique in its proximity to both the large Seacrest Beach lagoon pool and the beach access. We don't think there is another house in Seacrest with a better location.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for quickly handling the issue. Our stay was great and we will certainly reach out to you for our next 30a rental!!

Location is great!

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a great location to everything! It is very well stocked for all your needs. Decor was simple and comfortable. When I come back, I will be renting this house again. I wish I could have brought my little house dog but I understand. My daughter was amazed how comfortable the bed was and so I was!

Location, Vacation, ZERO Frustration!

  • 5 of 5


When you're a 120 second walk to the sugar sand beach and a 30 second walk to a RIDICULOUSLY gorgeous, multi level, cascading pool with fountain and friendly staff, you've got location NAILED. Too far to walk? They have free golf cart shuttle that'll bring you within a 20 second walk to the beach. How's that? Pool... STUNNING... Google Earth it and you'll see.

OK, add this - a one minute walk to shops, local restaurants, live entertainment, and bike rentals on tree lined streets. Forget something? Under 10 minute drive to national chain stores, drug stores, restaurants, etc. (But, why go to Outback when you could try the local flavors - Donut Hole, Fish Market?!)


Rent bikes for $55 a week and go sightseeing, sit at the house and do NOTHING on one of 6 porches or the back patio. (You might think a patio that backs up to 30A would be noisy or something, but with the trees and the stucco half wall it was more like an oasis and still felt very private. Each of the 6 furnished porches provided its own unique view of the surrounding area.

While we had zero rain on our trip, I wondered occasionally "what if it rained when we were here, WOULD IT STILL BE FUN?" With a video game console on the top floor, cable in the master and living room, books, puzzles, and games in the TV hutch, and no hassle wi-fi, there were ABUNDANT indoor activities - "now, you kids go find something to do..."

••• On top of that, the living room's L shaped couch (ahhhh), tall dining table, screened back porch and other porches provided PLENTY of intimate spaces for technology free CONNECTING with real, live people. Just saying... it's not called "GROUP THERAPY" for nuthin...


This is an updated and well furnished house with some very nice touches. Some reviewers mentioned few towels, but with our own beach towels and the high capacity washer/dryer we just cycled in and out and kept it moving. No biggie. Plenty of pots, pans, cups and dishes and the big fridge met our demanding demands. (6 adults, 3 small kids)

While the beach is lined with chairs and umbrellas for rent, the back porch was loaded with umbrellas (a few damaged, but still functional), backpack chairs, kids beach toys, and even a rolling cooler for your water bottles and beach snacks. Hurricane Katrina ate up a ton of this beach, but the result was a sand bar 30 yards out that provides a barrier safely eliminating a lot of harsh surf for families with toddlers.

  • 5 of 5

Look no further for your perfect vacation spot! This home is so convenient to everything. Steps from the beach, steps from restaurants and shopping. Just a great location. This large, updated home is perfect for 2 families with plenty of space and several outdoor decks. Everything was clean and spotless when we arrived. The top floor loft has views of the gulf and is a perfect hangout spot. We had a wonderful vacation and hope to be back! We loved the beach, the biking and all the wonderful restaurants. I would highly recommend this home and community!

Perfect Home!!

  • 5 of 5

This house exceeding our expectations, not only is it beautiful but we had 2 families staying in it and it was never crowded and we all had plenty of room! The views from the top balconies were beyond breathtaking. The house had everything we needed and more! The community is perfect too, wonderful for renting bikes to ride and the pool was really big and very enjoyable. The kids loved it! The house is a short walk to the beach but you can call the shuttle and it takes you and picks you up in case you have too much to carry and it didn't take any time for the shuttle to come, very impressive! Shops were also within walking distance which was very nice. We loved the location of this house too, short drive to both Panama City and Destin. I would absolutely highly recommend this house and we will now be renting it every year for our fall break.

Perfect home, perfect location

We had a great stay here. The kids loved the 3rd floor game/tv room. It was nicely furnished, very clean and in a great location for walking to the beach or restaurants, to get bike rentals, etc.

Perfect Location

  • 4 of 5

The location is one of the very best in this neighborhood. Even with three small children, we had no problems walking to both the beach and the pool.

The highlight of the house is the bedroom. The king sized beds and linens are very comfortable. We enjoyed each bedroom having its own bathroom, although the downstairs shower did not work for the first three days of our stay. I also think the house could benefit from additional towels in the bathrooms. If you have 10 people staying, you will constantly be washing towels.

I agree with other reviewers that the pots and pans could be updated. We did several meals at home and could have used an extra pot and pan.

The neighborhood pool closed three times for undisclosed issues - not weather related. The splash pad at Alys is a short bike ride away and came in handy those times.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We will look into replacing those pots and pans and adding more towels. We do provide one towel for the number of people the house sleeps.
