Designer Decorated Carriage House On Scenic Highway 30A

Welcome to Paradise!

From the moment you turn onto Scenic Highway 30A, you know that you have come to a place that is truly special. The fast-paced modern world slips away as you see families walking together or riding bikes along the sidewalks. The refreshing ocean breeze carries the joyful giggles of children playing games with each other in the ample green spaces offered by communities along the gulf. The pristine white sand beaches are renowned throughout the world. Relax and enjoy all this and more at Respite Redeemed, a charmingly beautiful carriage house newly built and designer decorated! Located on a quiet cul-de-sac street, with just a 0.3 mile walk to the semi-private beach, let us be your new home away from home.

Respite Redeemed has a kitchenette equipped with a microwave, refrigerator, toaster oven and Keurig coffee maker along with a dining area that provides ample space for eating and working. Rest your head on the plush king size bed while you watch a movie on the blue-ray disc player. The custom built closet has enough space to hold everything you’ll need to enjoy your week at the beach. There’s a spacious bathroom with plenty of storage and counter top space. There is an outdoor shower for your convenience. Added 2016 a built-in stone fire pit has been added for guest use!

Alys and Rosemary beaches are a short bike ride down 30A with restaurants, shopping, an amphitheater and playgrounds. Silver Sands Premium Outlets are located 30 minutes away and Pier Park with Ron Jon’s Surf Shop, Margaritaville, an IMAX theatre and lively night life can be found only 15 minutes away.

Stand-Up paddle boards, bicycles and kayaks can be rented for the week and waiting for you when you arrive. Respite Redeemed offers opportunities to those in non-profit work who need a getaway but have limited financial resources.

“Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without knowing it.”

Hebrews 13:2

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

John 13:34-35

Why Sandra at 30A Sea Story chose Seacrest Beach

Respite Redeemed was specifically built so we could share this beautiful area with others.

Wonderful couples getaway

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place for a couples getaway. Everything was clean, nice, and comfortable. Sink and tub were a little slow draining but nothing that caused any huge issues.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review Kaitlin! We were thrilled to hear you had a wonderful time staying in the carriage house! Had we known about the drains during your stay, we would have addressed the concern. Rest assured you will not have this issue when you return!

Nice but had bugs

  • 4 of 5

Overall nice stay, but there were many bugs that surpassed my comfort level. Needs to get fumigated regularly, especially in the warmer months.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you enjoyed your stay in our little slice of paradise, but were saddened to hear you were inconvenienced by pests. The home is treated quarterly and we are only two miles away. Had we been made aware, we could have dealt with that issue very quickly. The next time good fortune brings you back to 30A, we home you'll consider our home. We promise you won't be disappointed!

Great place to stay, but prepare for longer stays

  • 4 of 5

This is a gorgeous carriage house in a really convenient spot. We were able to walk to the beach with the backpack style beach chairs provided in the closet. Sandra was very helpful in connecting us to their partner, Rent Gear Here, for bikes and a beach umbrella. The only issues we found were related to us staying for a whole week. We had to buy toilet paper and hang our towels outside while it was still sunny, since supplies are only provided at the beginning of our stay. Meal options are accessible by bikes, but expect to ride for a while on the trail (15+ minutes) if you are going farther than Alys Beach. The carriage house is perfectly set up for leftovers: mini fridge, microwave, toaster oven, plates, silverware, and glasses are provided.

Owner's Response: We are glad to hear you enjoyed the 30A Sea Story backpack beach chairs as well as the equipment you rented from our preferred beach gear outfitter - Rent Gear Here! As mentioned in the arrival instructions, we provide some essential amenities in residence to help ensure guests arrive comfortably; however, a trip to one of the the grocery stores will be necessary when staying for a week. While in residence, you are within two and a half miles of a cornucopia of culinary delights and shopping treasures! The Hub is less than two miles down 30A to the west and within two and a half miles east down 30A, you have shoppes and restaurants n Alys Beach, The Village of South Walton, Peddler's Pavillion and Rosemary Beach. We enjoyed hosting Marie and hope she chooses to stay in one of our properties the next time good fortune brings her to Scenic Highway 30A.

Great for a Couple

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful spot, perfect for a couple to sneak away. We had beach chairs set up each day so it made the stay even more enjoyable. Aside from George's in Aly's Beach and The Hub, you cannot bike to lunch/dinner. Overall, great spot and highly recommend.

Owner's Response: The beach access for Respite Redeemed is really one of its jewels! Like the carriage house, it stays pretty quiet and affords one plenty of opportunity for relaxation and soaking up the sun. Once you arrive, you may find that you don't need your car until the time comes for you to return home. The Hub, with is excellent restaurants are less than two miles west down 30A. Within 2.3 miles east down 30A, you have the shoppes and restaurants of Alys Beach, The Village of South Walton, Peddler's Pavillion and Rosemary Beach. Mitch was a pleasure to work with and we hope to have the opportunity to host him the next time good fortune brings him back to 30A.

Great vacation, great rental!

  • 5 of 5

The space was clean and VERY nice. The location is such a short bike ride to the beach, it was easy and fun to ride there every day. The bikes were awesome and the beach chairs (backpack style) were so handy! Sandra was quick to respond to questions and super helpful as well. Overall, a great way to spend a week at the beach!
