Seacrest House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms , 3 Baths, Sleeps 8 in beds

This is an exclusive gated neighborhood with strict security guard supervision and a palm tree lined boulevard that leads to the white sand beaches. Play on the beach and then walk up the boardwalk and take a nice swim at the pool overlooking the emerald coast. Our beach home has three bedrooms, and three baths with a large covered deck off of one of the upstairs bedrooms.

No surprises! It's clean and well designed. There are two queen beds and two bunk beds. It's newly painted with tropical colors and furnished with most everything a home has to offer, including wi-fi and a new high definition televisions. Call me if everything is not just right. I want you to enjoy our home and come back again. A non-smoking inside or outside, no pets home.

A gift of soap, detergent, toothpaste, coffee with filters, shampoo, body wash and tissue is included. Just bring your toothbrush!

No hassles with a key. The door has a pass code.

About Terry Slocum

Terry and Beth Slocum live in Cartersville, Georgia.

Terry Slocum purchased this house in 2004

Why Terry Slocum chose South Walton

Doodlebug is 100 yards from the beach, in a gated community with a day time guard, which is great for children who want to play outside. Two of the most beautiful communities in Florida are adjacent to Doodlebug which are Alys Beach, and Rosemary Beach. There are great restaurants and shops within walking distance.

Ideal beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week at Doodlebug again, the location and quaintness just can't be beat. The bikes, beach chairs, pool and short walk to the beach are the main reasons we keep coming back. Love, love love the house and its proximity to the farmers market in Rosemary, shops and restaurants!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed out stay at the "Doodlebug" so much that we would definitely go back. Very clean and comfortable. Very nicely decorated with only a few steps to the pool and beach. Also, a very safe area in a gated community.

Lovely vacation home in a great secure neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Lovely vacation home in a great neighborhood! The location is perfect for families who want to be close to the beach and close to shops and restaurants. The home is very clean and nicely decorated. 2 bikes, beach chairs, boogie boards, and beach towels are a big plus! A lot less to pack. We would definitely recommend. Owners very responsive and helpful.Parking a bit tight for an SUV.

The whole package!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at Doodlebug twice now and just love it. The convenience to the beach along with the proximity to Seacrest and Rosemary shopping/restaurant districts is priceless! The kids love using the bikes and boogie boards and my husband and I love the beach chairs. It comes with everything we need for a very comfortable week of rest and relaxation!

Wonderful 30A Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The 6 of us including 4 kids ages 4-10 had a wonderful time at Doodlebug. How nice it was to have our own beech cruisers, grill, towels, body board, and bathroom amenities. Everything listed was in excellent condition. This is the best VRBO property that we have utilized. It truly is a short walk to the beach, pool and Rosemary Beach. We felt safe inside the gates of the community. Hopefully we will be able to go back someday soon.
