Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family had an amazing time at your house last week! Everything was beautiful, clean and just as described. We loved how convenient we were to everything and the walk to the beach was quick and easy. The only thing we would have changed is that we wish we could have stayed longer! :) thank you again for your wonderful communication and allowing us to rent your house.

Great Beach House

  • 4 of 5

My family recently stayed at Always Summer and really enjoyed the accommodations. The house was nicely furnished and clean upon our arrival.All of the rooms were very spacious for our family of 5. The third floor loft area was nice for the teenagers to hang out at night. The pool was small but was very refreshing after being on the beach all day. The location of the house was not too far from the beach and the area was quiet at night. We rented a golf cart for the week which was convenient to take into Seaside for lunch or dinner.

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family vacations in the area each year. This year we chose to stay at "Always Summer" and what a great decision it was! Gary's house was immaculately clean and very comfortable. The house was very spacious allowing us to have private quite space as well as cozy family space where we could all gather. The furnishings were all up to date and the beds were extremely comfortable. All of the appliances were in excellent working order with no problems at all. We were blessed with beautiful weather the entire week making morning walks to the beach and evenings by the pool possible every day. Communication with Gary was easy and he responded promptly to all messages. I highly recommend "Always Summer" and look forward to returning again.

Relaxing Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

We returned to Always Summer for a relaxing and wonderful Spring Break. It's a favorite place for our family, and we look forward to going back year after year.

The location is ideal. It's an easy walk to the beach and quiet and peaceful in the evenings.

The house is well maintained, and we noted many updates since our last visit in July. It also has a nice layout, which includes a third floor with a roof top deck that we enjoy spending time on. The pool is a wonderful retreat after a beach day. It's private, well landscaped and perfect for a families to enjoy.

The owners are helpful and want you to have a great visit. Since we knew it would be cool at night in early April, we inquired about heating the pool. Gary had it ready for us when we got to the house on Saturday and the kids took a nice evening swim.

We will be returning again to Always Summer this summer and are counting down the days!

Family Vacation At The Yellow Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were excited about staying at the yellow cottage in Seagrove Florida. Our first impression was very positive because of the easy location. The house sits on a quiet street, with a nice parking area. We felt safe and secure while we were there. We enjoyed walking in the area and always felt safe. The beach area is easy to find and walk too. We enjoyed our morning and evening walks on the beach.

The house was clean and well stocked for all our needs. We basically lived on the bottom floor with our daughter staying on the second floor during her stay. All kitchen utensils were there for us to use. A trip to the grocery store was all that was needed. There were towels, wash and dryer to make life easier. It was a very nice and convenient rental for any size family. We would highly recommend it.

September on 30A

  • 4 of 5

Our group -- 4 adults and 2 children -- had a great time at Always Summer. There was plenty or room to spread out and having the pool onsite was very convenient. The beautiful, white sand beach was just a short walk away, and the chair rental service recommended by the owners was reasonably priced and always had equipment available.

Seagrove is an ideal place for families, and the entire 30A stretch is a great area of the Emerald Coast, with many restaurants and other attractions to choose from, but without the larger crowds found in Destin or Panama City. We certainly will be back.

We had the pleasure of spending an entire week at Always Summer and the experience was wonderful. Our family of 6 adults and 2 children were afforded much space in the bedrooms and throughout the entire house. The pool environment was great, the walk to the beach was short and very worthwhile as the beach was beautiful. Sharon was great to talk to concerning other things to do in the area and reassured us to ask her for anything we needed. I encourage anyone that is interested in spending quality, family time in Seagrove to rent this place. You will not be disappointed.
