This was our second time staying in this beautiful home. The first time was in 2015; we were one of the first guests:) We've stayed all over the gulf coast and east coast, but this is the best-we've found our home away from home in Livin' the Dream. We honestly can't imagine staying anywhere else now! We're coming back once (maybe twice) in 2017!!
We never thought we'd enjoy the bay views as much as beach side, but it is now our favorite. We love the pool, the lighthouse, peaceful neighborhood and all over relaxing setting.
If you ever decide to sell, let us know:)
This house is gorgeous and so well laid-out! Each morning we would watch the sunrise over the bay drinking our coffee on the porch. It is a very short walk to the beach. I can see why this is called the forgotten coast! The beautiful white sand beaches were never crowded, and the water was so clear. We had a great sandbar about 20 yards out that the kids played on as long as we would let them! This beach is the perfect place to hang out and have a fire while you watch the sunset. I think our kids had just as much playing in the bay as they did at the beach, though! On the bay side is a beautiful pool house to go from swimming in the pool to catching hermit crabs in the bay. We were just a little too early for scallop season this year but found several that we threw back while we were playing in ankle deep water in the bay. Then the kids would catch frogs at night as we walked back to the house from the bay. The restaurants in this area are apparently known for oysters, shrimp and scallops, so we ate out most nights to try the different famous local places. The oysters were crazy-good at all 3 local restaurants we visited! This is our new favorite place in Florida given the beautiful beaches, amazing food, historic local towns and lack of heavy tourist traffic. And our kids had their best beach experience! Livin' the Dream was perfectly situated between the beach and the bay as we enjoyed both sides of the cape.
