About Gary Hinrichs
We fell in love with Seagrove Beach and the 30A experience on our first family vacation in 2004. Over the years we have made many family memories including; bouncing on the beautiful emerald green waves at our neighborhood beach access, building sand castles, catching crabs, riding bikes through the many scenic neighborhoods, paddle boarding on Western Lake, catching Red Snapper and Grouper on a chartered fishing trip, soaking in the sun on our pool deck, star gazing from our third floor observation deck and eating some of our favorite beach foods like smoked tuna dip or key lime pie!
Gary Hinrichs purchased this House in 2012
Why Gary Hinrichs chose Santa Rosa Beach
We chose Always Summer because it fits all the criteria of a perfect vacation home on 30A: Location Our home is centrally located on 30A with the beach communities of Seaside, Watercolor and Grayton Beach just 5-10 minutes west and Alys Beach, Seacrest Beach and Rosemary Beach just 5-10 minutes to the east. It is easy to enjoy the many unique restaurants, shops, architecture and activities that each of these communities has to offer. If you want to visit Pier Park at Panama City Beach you can drive 25 minutes east or if you want to enjoy the shopping, restaurants and activities of Destin you can get there by driving 30 minutes west. Beach Access We wanted a home that would have a short, easy and safe walk to the beach for young children and elderly grandparents. It's just a three minute walk front our front door through a quiet neighborhood before you have your feet in the sugar white sand of the Emerald Coast. Private Pool We wanted to enjoy the refreshing feel of taking a plunge into a freshwater pool after a day in the salty ocean water. Our pool is truly private with a large pool deck surrounded by a privacy fence and a large green space behind the fence. The pool lights make it possible to enjoy this space even after the sun goes down. First Floor Bedroom We wanted to make sure that family members and guests that have difficulty with stairs would have easy access to a bedroom and bathroom.
What makes this House unique
Quiet Neighborhood Our home is close to the beach yet hidden in a quiet neighborhood on a dead end road with little traffic. Large Private Pool Deck Many homes that boast a private pool have a pool the size of a postage stamp. Our pool and pool deck have plenty of space for everyone and it truly is a private space surrounded by a privacy fence and green space behind the fence. Lots of Deck Space With five different porches and deck spaces there is plenty of room for guests to find solitude.

Inviting homey place in a quiet, friendly neighborhood. Conveniently located to all communities on 30A. Immaculately clean, nice pool area. Beachy decorated bedrooms with comfy beds and super cute tower room. Short, safe walk to the beautiful beach, crossing a gravel road and one paved residential, low traffic street. Be sure and rent bikes for fun cycling into lovely Seaside to enjoy food, shopping, concerts and more. Owner is TOPS! -No complicated orders or demands.; very reasonable, understanding , cooperative and efficient. Extremely friendly manager, only several doors away, should you require anything. Best time we have ever had on 30A in this relaxed, down to earth people friendly area.
Thanks for your kind words. Glad you enjoyed your stay. A happy customer customer is our goal!
We had a wonderful time at Always Summer! The house was clean and close to the beach. It was in a quiet area but close to everything and off of 30A. You don't have to cross 30A to get to the beach and that was one of our favorite things! The heated pool was a must for us. We will definitely be staying again!
The perfect house for our family holiday
What a great find! Loved this house & location. The rooms were clean with plenty of space to spread out. We stayed a week with extended family & could't have asked for a better place given the price & location. Our host was extra helpful accommodating our group & communicating before we arrived. Our teens loved the privacy of the tower room & the heated pool was nice in November. The house is tucked away on a quiet street with a 2-3 minute walk to the beach. The perfect getaway. Thanks you so much!
We loved this house! Having a bedroom and bath on the main level was great. The 2 bedrooms upstairs with attached baths were perfect as well. The tower room is so cute, just a nice place to read and relax. The beds were all comfortable, no complaints! We chose this home because of the heated private pool...so nice to come back to the house and use the pool after a day on the beach. The walk to the beach is not bad at all, no traffic to worry about while crossing the road. The beach of course is beautiful, the water so clear and blue. We would definitely choose this house again. Had a wonderful family vacation....it just went by too fast!!
Great home and location!
This home made for such an enjoyable fall break beach trip! We were two families of 4 and there was plenty of room for everyone to have their own space and plenty of common space as well. Having the pool was a bonus when the kids wanted a break from the beach. Very short walk to the beach. Biggest compliment I have is about the owner and property manager who are so responsive and accommodating and really want you to be happy during your stay. We enjoyed this house, would come back and would highly recommend!
Loved the Location!
Great home and is located in a great quiet neighborhood. Owners very friendly and easy to work with. A very short walk to the beach. Close to everything. Pool is so nice even though we spend most of the time at the beach. Sleeps many and you have plenty of space for everyone.
'Always Summer' is located in the quiet and friendly confines of Seagrove Beach along Scenic 30-A and within easy distance of Seaside and Rosemary Beaches. Enjoy a peaceful 3 minute walk from the house to the uncrowded beach. Or walk, run or ride the bike trail that spans the length of 30-A and spend the day exploring picturesque beach communities and State Parks. Also, experience Seagrove Beach culture thru local restaurants, coffee shops, unique shopping, and evening life or take a 25-minute drive to Destin or Panama City to enjoy their many attractions. Home location provides easy access to grocery stores, gas stations, and Post Office.
