About the property

Private house, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (sleeps 8-10)

Completely remodeled January 2015, from top to bottom, everything is new. Starting with the enlarged and covered, private, master bedroom balcony, we didn't stop until all rooms were updated. The 'all new' list includes: Appliances, counter tops, plumbing fixtures, reconfigured laundry room, tankless hot water heater, tile, fans and lighting, wainscoting, closet and pantry systems, carpet, paint, and hardware. You've got to see it to believe it!

Fun and Games is located in the highly desirable, family friendly, gated community of Summers Edge in Seagrove Beach. South of Scenic Hwy 30A, the location provides carefree beach and pool access in a bike and pedestrian friendly neighborhood. Located adjacent to the 18 mile bike path running the length of Hwy 30A, bike trips to restaurants, shops, Seaside and Watercolor are a breeze. The neighborhood has 2 beautiful pools (1 heated in cooler months) and a charming dedicated beach access all within 150 yards of the house with no busy streets to cross.

Inside and out, 'Fun and Games' is your perfect beach retreat, ideal for families or couples. The screened front porch with double mahogany doors is the perfect place for morning coffee, afternoon chats, and evening cocktails. Inside you will find a Pottery Barn perfect, large great room with double ceiling fans. With room for everyone, enjoy family movie night or choose from the extensive supply of games and start a family game night tradition. The spacious, meticulously stocked, cooks kitchen overlooks the great room so no one is left out. The kitchen has all stainless steel appliances, ample room for multiple cooks, and a large pantry. The dining room seats 6 comfortably and the large breakfast bar seats 4 more. We have also provided a Weber charcoal grill outdoors for your grilling needs.

The master bedroom makes up the entire second floor, making it your own private retreat. It has an extremely comfortable king sized bed, large walk in closet, personal TV, a beautiful writing desk and a reading chair with ottoman. French doors open on to a private outdoor deck with a bar height table and chairs. The spacious master bath has double sinks and a very large shower. The master retreat is your own special vacation.

The 2 additional charming bedrooms are on the main floor and they share a Jack and Jill bath. The first bedroom has bunk beds with a trundle (3 twins) and a double bed. The closet in this room has been organized to efficiently hold clothes for several children and there is a personal TV. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed and a personal TV. The large Jack and Jill bath has double sinks and a bathtub/shower. All bedrooms have personal TVs and ceiling fans.

Additionally, downstairs there is a full laundry room and a separate powder room off the kitchen. One of the couches in the great room is a sofa sleeper if you need additional sleeping space.

Outdoors there is a wonderful, large and private outdoor shower with hot and cold water. It is heavenly on warm days, cool days and even in the rain! Once you try it, you will be hooked.

Seagrove Beach is in the heart of the beautiful 18 mile stretch of the Gulf commonly know as 30A. With its pristine, sugar sand, uncrowded beaches and rare fresh water lakes the area is pure unspoiled Florida, a beach lovers dream and a nature lovers fantasy. There are many authentic beach towns to explore along Scenic Hwy 30A, Seaside, Watercolor, Grayton Beach, Alys Beach and Rosemary Beach, just to name a few. Outstanding restaurants, unique shops, farmers markets and the friendly locals can keep your non-beach hours full, and I almost forgot to mention free outdoor concerts, free outdoor movies on the lawn, and outdoor plays. Whether you are planning your first trip to Scenic 30A or you have been coming here for years, 'Fun and Games' will be your perfect beach house getaway.

About Laurie

In need of a break from the frigid Chicago spring weather, my husband and I first visited Seaside with our children in 1999. We fell in love with the area instantly. We both felt so at ease and relaxed, the pace was perfect, and the beaches were indescribable. We were hooked and so were our kids, everyone hated to leave and our return trips became a bi-annual necessity. In the spring of 2002 we discovered the new neighborhood of Summers Edge on one of our biking real estate tours and the rest is history. Over 16 years later the feelings are exactly the same, we are still in love with the area, we are completely at ease and relaxed when we are there, we love the pace, and we always still hate to leave. Seagrove Beach on Scenic Hwy 30A is definitely a slice of heaven.

Laurie purchased this house in 2002

Why Laurie chose South Walton

We choose Summers Edge for its quaint 'old florida' feel, its wonderful proximity to the beach and Eastern Lake without any busy roads, and its great family feel. We had a few houses to pick from at the time, but my husband knew instantly, the house with the mahogany screen doors and the big, high ceilinged great room would be ours. We named the house 'Fun and Games' because we knew that would represent all the family memories we would make there. It has definitely lived up to its name.

What makes this house unique

As the original owners, we have always meticulously maintained this house. It is part of our family and always will be. We enjoy sharing it with others so they can create wonderful beach memories as well. We think you find it as pristine as it was in 2002, only now it is full of so many happy times and 'Fun and Games'.

Perfect House. Great Location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 4 weeks and plan to return in 2018. The home is beautifully decorated, on a quiet street, and located on the beach side of 30-A. Since we biked almost every day, being close to the bike path was a bonus. The kitchen is well-equipped, and all appliances are high-quality. King bed is comfortable, as is the living room furniture. We enjoyed the screened front porch! It's always fun to experience a variety of good restaurants that are nearby, and the farmers' markets in Seaside and Rosemary Beach are good sources of fresh produce and baked goods. Laurie, the owner, is vey responsive and pleasant. We will be back!

Owner's Response: Carol We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay and will be returning again next year. We agree that the location of Fun and Game is one of the things that makes it so special, close to the beach, close to the bike path, close to restaurants and farmers markets, yet very quiet. Like you, the front screened porch is our go to every morning and evening. Thanks for staying Laurie

The best house we have stayed in from Watercolor to Rosemary beach along 30A.

  • 5 of 5

We come to the 30A area almost every summer and have for about 10 years. We love to bring our dogs with us. Fun and Games was our favorite house. The location was good, the house was clean, well laid out and had everything we could have needed and more. We are a family of 4 but usually have friends from the area come visit off and on while we are there. The house had plenty of room to entertain and to store everything. The way it was decorated felt more like a home than a rental. It is harder to find homes that allow pets, but we love having our dogs with us, so to find a house that is nice and pet friendly offers us everything in one! Thank you for sharing your lovely home; we will be back!

Owner's Response: Leslie We are thrilled you found our house to be such a great fit for your family. It is truly a second home for our family, and we love sharing that home-like-feel with others. As 30A has matured over the years, Summers Edge in Seagrove Beach has become more, and more of an ideal location. Easy access to the beach and pools, along with easy access that all of 30A has to offer, has made Fun and Games the perfect place to stay. We would love to welcome you back- Laurie

"Fun & Games" is a real gem

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks at "Fun & Games" in April 2017 and I can describe our stay and the property in one word -FABULOUS! From top to bottom, everything was amazing and top of the line. The dècor is beautiful, the beds comfortable, the kitchen stunning and a joy to cook in, the front porch the perfect place to relax, and the outdoor shower, well, it's the best way to start and end every day. Need I say more? Just a short walk brings you to two wonderful pools or a white powder sand beach. We walked the beach (sometimes for miles), watched stunning sunsets that made us wish we could stay forever, rented bikes, and visited great restaurants (that were all near enough to ride our bikes to). The beachside towns on 30A are charming and we did lots of exploring and shopping. This was truly a wonderful vacation and would love to return to "Fun & Games" again.

Owner's Response: Rob-Sounds like you enjoy all the same things that make us love every minute of our time at Fun and Games. Short walk to beach and pools, easy access to all of 30A, the porch, the outdoor shower, and the total relaxation of being at Fun and Games. Looking forward to welcoming you back Laurie

Better than the photos!

Owner's Response: Michael So glad to hear you enjoyed the house and it worked well for your family. With all the wonderful things to do along 30A, Seagrove has become a great central location. Easy access to Seaside and WaterColor to the west and a short trip to WaterSound, The Hub, and Rosemary Beach to the east, but in reality Seagrove has so much to offer you can easily just stay put. We look forward to welcoming you back Laurie

Best Beach House in Seagrove!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best Vacations we have ever had! This home is tucked away in a quiet little community called Summer's Edge in SeaGrove. It was the perfect setting for our getaway! Its close proximity to the beautiful beach, pools, shopping restaurants etc made it easy to ride bikes everywhere. The home itself had everything you would ever need and more! The kitchen was stocked with every pot,utensil, serving dish etc you feel like a chef in a gourmet kitchen! We loved playing games after dinner and laughing so hard till our bellies hurt. Sunrises from the upstairs Master bedroom balcony were beautiful. As well as the enjoying coffee and a book on the screened in front porch. We did not want to leave and will be back soon to Fun and Games year after year!!
