a sweet oasis that is near the activity hubs...

  • 5 of 5

The property was very clean and quiet. The deck has a great view to the water and of the sunset where we would enjoy morning coffee and even afternoon lunch or appetizers. The condo is simply decorated and had the basic conveniences we needed for a weekend stay. (refrigerator and coffee pot :)) - never used the toaster oven or microwave but those are nice to have. The bed was comfortable.// We enjoyed the private pool; as well as, the walk to the beach. Situated between Alys and Rosemary Beaches, we walked to various restaurants and to the hub of activity and live music. (a great idea to bring a flashlight as it gets dark on the sidewalks and there can be lots of people and bicycles.)

Great stay on 30a

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I got away for a quick Anniversary get away to 30a. We were married in Seaside 8 years ago! It was last minute so couldn't find anything in Seaside. We did come across Coastal Retreat which was close to some of our favorite things on 30a. The unit is very budget friendly, cozy, efficient, clean, comfortable and decorated nicely. We didn't spend too much time in the room despite some rain on our trip. This place was perfect for the two of us and Jennifer was a pleasure to work with. Alys, Seacrest, and Rosemary town centers are just a short walk away with all of their amenities and the beach a pleasant walk away. You can not beat the soft white sand of the gulf! Thank you for a great stay. My husband and I had a wonderful time reconnecting and enjoying kid free time!

We had a fantastic week!! Very nice and clean studio. Short five minute walk to the beach, but we used the tram when we were carrying our chairs, umbrella, cooler, etc. and they were very friendly. Enjoyed the BBQ food truck in Seaside and biking to Donut Hole, Charlie's Donut Truck in Alys Beach, Shades, Pizza by the Sea, and La Cocina. Also enjoyed dinner in Panama City at Margaritaville and Pompano Joe's. Three full days of the ocean being closed, but weather was great once the day and a half of storms passed. Thank you so much for a great and enjoyable stay!!

Cozy for 2!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect location for a great price! Having access to a private beach was perfect for avoiding an overwhelming Memorial Day weekend crowd. The place is cozy and clean with a view of the beach!

Sweet Anniversary Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The studio suite was perfect for our long weekend. The Inn at Seacrest was very clean and well kept. The property is located conveniently between Rosemary Beach and Alys Beach. We rented bikes and only moved our car once after we arrived. The property is within short walking/biking distance of everything. We made our visit the weekend before Memorial Day. This made for a pleasant stay as there were not as many people, no teenagers or college students. This is a family friendly place that all can enjoy. We hope it stays that way for years to come.
