Overview

About the property

2 Spacious Bedroom/2 Bath, Sleeps 6

Don't let the 2 bedroom tag fool you...this sweet cottage with an open floor plan and living area is spacious and allows for comfortable lounging while watching huge flat screen tv. Wifi, cable, and movie channels are included, and the home has washer/dryer for your convenience.

The home also features an updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite counter-tops, solid wood cabinets, breakfast bar, microwave, and pantry. It is fully stocked and ready to be used to create wonderful meals during your stay.

When the sand and salt become too much, and quiet spot for reading is needed, there is a clean and well-kept community pool just down the street with keyed access for renters.

For those ready to enjoy the outdoors, there are several beach chairs with umbrellas for your use. There is also an affordable bike rental facility next door. One fabulous feature of this area is the 20 miles of biking/walking paths along all of highway 30-A and in more tucked-away off-road trails.

The home is located walking distance from great local shopping and dining. Public beach access is just across Hwy 30-A. The beaches in this area of Florida can't be beat! We are in close proximity to many lovely communities with additional shopping and dining opportunities like Seaside (Just voted #1 Family beach in the world by Travel and Leisure Magazine), Watercolor, Rosemary Beach, and Grayton Beach only a bike ride away.

About Donna Fargason

Our family has been traveling to this area of Florida for years and years. When we saw this place for sale this past fall, we had to snatch it up. It is so close to everything we love to do, and the beach access can't be beat short of being on the beach itself.

Donna Fargason purchased this house in 2012

Why Donna Fargason chose Seagrove Beach

This property appealed to us because of it's location in wonderful Seagrove Beach, and its proximity to Seaside, Watercolor, and Rosemary Beach. The dining and shopping in the area can't be beat!! The neighborhood Gulf Mist is on a cul de sac and is occupied mostly by owners. It is well-maintained and monitored by people who know the area and care about the upkeep and reputation of the neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

This home also has a balcony upstairs and comfortable seating downstairs that allows one to enjoy the evening sunset and breeze. The firepit and courtyard are perfect for entertaining. There is also a garage and plenty of parking.

Better than any condo, clean and in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had 10 days of fun at Sandy Pause. It is a cute house and well stocked. Right in the heart of all the activity. I really liked the bicycle trails. Wonderful experience.

Very responsive owner. Plan to return.

Retirement getaway

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I plus our two small pups really enjoyed our stay at Sandy Pause (Paws) this past week. This was my first week of retirement and we chose to visit this part of the Gulf. We have stayed in many places over the past 30+ years on vacation from St. George Island to Destin. The home is convenient to many restaurants and the Publix grocery. The neighborhoods are quiet and very walkable; pet friendly also, except on the beach. Everything was clean and maintained. No complaints. I would recommend this property to anyone coming to visit this part of the Gulf of Mexico. Clayton & Suzanne Freeman

Great November getaway!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sandy Pause! The house is very comfortably furnished and is in a great location. Our dogs enjoyed hanging out on the back patio with us. We felt right at home! Thanks for letting us stay there!

Charming as always.

  • 1 of 5

This was our fourth stay at Sandy Pause. As always the house was spotless and stocked well. Beach chairs and towels are also provided. The interior has been recently painted and some new furniture has been added. Unfortunately we were not able to use the outdoor spaces (front porch and back patio) due to an infestation of flies. We tried to use the pool in order to escape the flies, however, landscaping maintenance was being done at the pool. I rated our stay as "1" star due to the infestation of flies.

Owner's Response: Denise, we are always so happy to have you all, and we're glad to hear that everything at the house was good. I am so glad you got with me about the flies while you were there. So many times people don't and I don't have a chance to pass along information. I was able to find out that it was a regional issue and that there were some potential remedies for the flies. My husband was in Seaside that week and had the same problem. He said that he spoke with you also and that you mentioned you don't usually come this time of year. I'm not sure if the flies have a yearly migration but I will look into that. Hopefully they will have left the area in time for your next visit. My husband did tell me that cactus juice was recommended to him when he brought it up to a local and she said it comes in a spray.

***Pets and their owners are welcome at Sandy Pause. Our fenced in back yard is a perfect solution for travel with your pet.***

Seagrove (address listed as Santa Rosa Beach due to its unincorporated status) is a step back in time. While neighboring areas have become crowded and over-developed, Seagrove encompasses the very unique and lovely Seagrove Beach Community located in Walton County, Florida, in the state's panhandle. It boasts more than 60 public access beaches, as well as a number of beaches located in state parks, including Grayton Beach and Blue Mountain Beach.

Eden Gardens State Park features a 19th-century-style house set amidst beautiful moss-covered oak trees. The renovated home is a showcase for the second largest collection of Louis XIV furniture in the U.S. and offers a great glimpse into the country's past.

In addition to lounging on the beach and hiking in the parks, you can rent bikes to peruse the shops, go golfing or fishing, play tennis, and go on a guided tour. Horseback riding is available at several places in the area.

After you have spent the morning or afternoon at the beach you'll want to try one of the great local restaurants, and there are numerous casual dining options, including Pickles Beachside Eatery, Louis Louis, Red Bar, Cafe 30-A, Bud & Alley's, and the Donut Hole Bakery Cafe.

For those more interested in shopping, visit Magnolia House for its jewelry, handcrafted rugs and original artwork, Mystic Porte, which is home to a variety of unique shops, Seaside and Watercolor boutiques, and the Shops of Grayton, which specializes in fine art and gifts. Silver Sands Outlet Mall is a only a short drive to Sandestin, and offers hi-end shops such as Coach, Michael Kors, Saks Off-5th, Banana Republic, J. Crew, Brooks Brothers, and more. Nearby Panama City Beach's Pier Park is a mega outdoor shopping mall consisting of over a million square feet of specialty shops and restaurants plus a 16 cinema Grand Theater.

In Seagrove, look no further than Gulf Place. This shopping and dining village is located right across from the public access beach, Ed Walline Park, and features a great selection of clothing, surfing accessories and home décor items. And for a bit of extra pampering after a long day of shopping and beachside fun, there is also a lovely day spa.
