About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

WELCOME to the 'The Rooster'!

This luxurious 4 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom Seacrest Beach home is ideal for one large family or two families that wish to share the cost. There are two master suites and each bedroom has its own bathroom so that everyone can enjoy comfort and privacy. The house is just across from a huge 12,000 square foot pool that is surrounded by beautiful landscaping and palm trees. In just a short 3-4 minute walk from the front door is one of the prettiest stretches of white sand beaches along the Gulf Coast. The community also offers a complimentary shuttle service to and from the beach. The beach is so nice you will swear you are in the Caribbean!

This home accommodates 12 comfortably - two king, one queen, two twin beds in one room, one queen sofa sleeper, and one twin rollaway. Rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. We update the comforters every year to keep the unit fresh! Each bedroom has its own TV and FULL BATH. The kitchen, dining room and family room are open, which is great for gathering without feeling crowded. The kitchen is well equipped with appliances and all your cooking and serving needs. The family room is very comfortable with a large TV, CD, and VHS/DVD player. The house has surround sound throughout, so bring your favorite CDs and DVDs. Also, the house has free Internet service via DSL. There is ample parking for cars.

Seacrest Beach is right next to renowned Rosemary Beach and Alys Beach, 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 our kids' favorite, the Sugar Shak, where you can get ice cream and candy. Bike rentals are also available in Rosemary. 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 30A. It spans the entire distance from Rosemary Beach to Grayton Beach (more than 10 miles).

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

The Rooster is owned by three families who have enjoyed vacationing in South Walton County for many years. We all liked the area so much we decided to pool our funds and purchase a house in Seacrest Beach. We were drawn to the neighborhood because of the great pool, dedicated beach access, and friendly family atmosphere. We all enjoy the pace and relaxation of a South Walton beach vacation and invariably leave the Red Rooster feeling refreshed and looking forward to our next visit.

Why Vacation Home Manager chose South Walton

What sold us on The Rooster was the two master suites and the fact that every bedroom is roomy and has a private bathroom. The main public space is wide open with a nice flow and plenty of room for 10-12 people to gather and enjoy one another without feeling cramped. This was ideal for us and we felt it would be ideal for similar families that like to travel together and enjoy the benefits of shared accommodations. We hope you enjoy your stay in our house as much as we do and we sincerely appreciate your business. We especially enjoy welcoming return guests each year and hope we can add you to that special group.

Red Rooster Rocks!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home perfect for our two family group. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need. Loads of plates/glass wear/serving dishes/ pots and pans. Large grill in the backyard made grilling dinner fast and easy. Tons of space for everyone to hang out including multiple decks/balcony areas. Beds were all very comfortable and included loads of extra bath towels and linens. There are also two twin size roll out beds if needed.

The house is located directly across the street from the pool entry making access very convenient. The pool is huge and beautiful. They do a great job keeping it clean and safe. Note that they are very strict with the rules of the pool. As soon as you get there see the attendant for your wristband (you will need it for the pool and beach access). They have adult-only swim time every hour for 15 min. which was nice. No footballs or other objects to be thrown in the pool except for blow up beach balls(your own or they provide free of charge!) They do allow floats in the pool. The beach is within walking distance but we mostly choose to ride the provided shuttle because we brought beach chairs/sand toys with us. You call for shuttle service and they were at our front door within 5-10 min every time! The beach is gorgeous with super white sand and crystal clear water. The only negative being the amount of chairs the rental companies are allowed to put up, taking away most of the prime beach area.

Seacrest beach, Alys beach and Rosemary beach are all within walking distance and have their own little town areas with activities, live music, dining. You can also rent bikes for another way to explore the area.

Wonderful stay and wonderful memories!!!

Spacious and Comfortable - Red Rooster

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many properties at Seacrest and enjoy this community very much. Red Rooster is decorated and appointed with higher end materials and furnishings. You can tell the owners take pride in maintaining such a wonderful beach house. Location and direct access to the pool was a big plus. The only negative aspect of the whole house was the children's room only having two twin beds. We had four children with us and even though they had roll out beds, it made it a daily chore to open them, make beds and close them evey morning. Bunk beds are in most homes in Seacrest and would be a huge plus for this property. Other than that, the home is perfect!

Great house

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here over Thanksgivng with 5 adults and 2 kids. The house had plenty of room with a great open floor plan downstairs. The house had everything we needed for cooking and grilling. Great lay out for families. Very close to the pool. About a 5 minute walk to the beach. The house was very clean, but the bathroom shower grout could be refreshed to make it feel a little cleaner.

Red Rooster - Convenient & Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

Interior of property is clean, and well-maintained. Spacious rooms, 4 adults and 4 kids in our party, and we never felt crowded. The pool is right across the street, so it was very quick and convenient to travel back and forth.

To get to the beach, on the other side of 30A, the shuttle carts makes it convenient, and the complimentary pre-reserved beach chairs are a nice feature. I've heard that the lady guarding the beach access has denied some inflatables or surfboards heading to the beach - but we've never had a problem.

It's also an easy walk to the Seacrest & Rosemary restaurants and shops on 30A.

We have stayed at other Seacrest Beach properties, and liked Red Rooster enough that we returned here.

Red Rooster - Awesome

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Red Rooster at Seacrest Beach was awesome. The home was beautiful and we had lots of room. It was located just across the street from the pool. We would recommend this home to anyone.
