About April Lickovitch

Originally from Ohio and Minnesota, we now reside in Alpharetta, Georgia with our three young boys.

April Lickovitch purchased this house in 2012

Why April Lickovitch chose South Walton

On our first visit to 30A, we fell in love with the area and knew someday we would want to buy a home here. The white sand beaches and clear, turquoise water reminded us of vacationing in the Caribbean. The kids love the many ice cream shops and bike paths. And the artsy, quaint, eclectic arcitecture of the towns along 30A make us feel like we are in another world. We hope we can share our love of the area with you, by creating a home for you to enjoy that is luxurious, comfortable and fun for kids.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this home, because we found it to have a unique setting for Seacrest Beach. We just love how this home is tucked on a small side street, with a private, wooded front yard that overlooks a bike path. And, the home borders Rosemary Beach, so we are just a hop-skip-and-a-jump to some of our favorite Rosemary eateries around the corner!

Very clean, well maintained property

  • 5 of 5

Probably the cleanest beach house we have ever stayed in. 2 families with 5 kids total had plenty of room. Absolutely loved the tram service to the beach. It made the trip to the beach a breeze, no whining kids on the walk to beach. Tram drops you off directly at beach, never waited more than 5 min for a tram. Would definitely stay again!

Beautiful and excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved it! Would definitely like to return. A great place for Spring Break with plenty of room for our kids to each have their own space. The outdoor porches are a plus! This home is really on an awesome lot, seems very private versus some of the other homes. Wooded trail behind house and in area next door provides unique sense of privacy for Seacrest. The home decor is lovely! New and beautiful with everything you need!

A Weekend of Great Memories

  • 5 of 5

" We had a really nice time at the Sunshine Shack last weekend. We were there with 3 generations and there was plenty of room for everyone to have some "personal space". We didn't spend a whole lot of time at the house, as we were visiting friends who have a beach house, so we were there most of the time. The house was as described and very comfortable. We would recommend it and would stay there again! The community pool was beautiful! Thanks for a wonderful stay! "

Beautiful home, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Sunshine Shack for our first vacation with our toddler, and it was a great choice! While we only used 2 of the 5 bedrooms, it was nice to be able to have him on the same floor as us but down the hall and undisturbed during nap time and at night. The basket of toys upstairs was great for the couple of rainy afternoons we had. The beach shuttle was really convenient and we also enjoyed just walking around the neighborhood in the evenings. Shopping and restaurants were also within walking distance. The Sunshine Shack is a beautiful home with great amenities and we highly recommend it!

A beautiful, peaceful home

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the Sunshine Shack, and April was especially helpful in working through some details with me at the last minute. The home is beautiful, and our family had a wonderful week. Our favorites were meals around the big dining table and swinging on the back porch. All four of our kids, ages 16 to 2, wanted to sleep together in the bunk room even though there were two bedrooms to spare. Such a fun week for our family. We hope to stay there again!
