About Lynne Andrews

My family and I traveled to this area of Santa Rosa Beach, FL every summer beginning in 1977. We fell in love immediately! When the opportunity came for my husband and children to build a home in Santa Rosa Beach - it was a dream come true! The sugar sand beaches and tourquoise water is breathtaking morning, noon or night. And by far, our beaches are among the cleanest and white I've ever experienced. I've been amazed at how many guests come back year after year to create family memories of their own! What an experience it is! Once you've vacationed at 'A Pineapple Under the Sea' you'll want to return to paradise again and again!

Lynne Andrews purchased this house in 2005

Why Lynne Andrews chose South Walton

Old Florida Village was a great location to buy because of the great neighborhood and family-friendly appeal and it also is convenient to shopping, restaurants, the beach and steps away from the pool.

What makes this house unique

One of the most popular features of 'A Pineapple Under the Sea' is the Surrey Family Bicycle for 5 that comes as a bonus for my guests. Another great aspect is the luxury mattresses in all of the rooms and the fact that my house is fully equipped for hosting a neighborhood party or cooking a full Thanksgiving meal! I've done both!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for opening your home to us for a fantastic stay! The home is beautiful and we truly enjoyed our week there. My poor kids actually cried this morning when we packed the car! Once again, thank you for one of the best family vacations ever from the 90 year old down to the 3 year old, everyone got the getaway they so richly deserved!



Blessings and peace,

Billie Edwards

We adore it!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely adore A Pineapple Under the Sea vacation home, and already want to go back soon! We are counting down until we get to get to go again. The house was perfect for our family of 5 with three young boys. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great, family-friendly home and neighborhood with all the amenities you could ask for, AND close to the beach!

Loved this property!

  • 5 of 5

A little slice of heaven in Santa Rosa Beach, FL. This house was perfect and full to the brim with everything my family needed plus more. Really loved the special touches like chairs and a wagon for the beach and all the comfortable touches to make this truly a great vacation!! The location to the beach is perfect and loved that we could walk to Buddy's ice cream shop on the corner. What a perfect time we had! Can't wait to be there again making great family memories!

The home was nice

  • 3 of 5

We had some issues. No hot water for the first 3 days. Customer service wasn't that great resolving the issue. We didn't receive any compensation for our inconvenience. Also, the home is advertised as sleeps 12. Most definitely a group of 12 with mostly children, not adults.

Owner's Response: Saresa thank you for your review. As you know, I worked very hard to get a repair man out there to replace and service the hot water heater. Unfortunately I've found some service techs often work on 'beach time' and getting on their schedule during the influx of guests for spring break can be challenging. The hot water heater issue has been resolved and my sincere thanks to you and your family for your patience during what was clearly an inconvenience. I've sent a gift card to you to compensate for the disruption in your stay. I know it won't make up for not having hot water at the beach...but I do appreciate you working with us. :( And you're correct I will make that update on how many my house sleeps. I recently replaced a sleeper sofa downstairs that constituted a queen bed and didn't make that update on this listing.

Wonderful vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Pineapple Under the Sea. It was quaint, cozy and comfortable. L The house was very clean and had everything that you need for a week long stay. An early review said that it needed updating, but I found that it only added that much more charm to the house. It was comfortable enough that I wasn't worried about kicking my feet up, relaxing or actually using the house. It was just like being at home. The community pools are very close by and the neighborhood is quiet and has a wonderful family atmosphere. The descriptions says that it's a close walk to the beach. I would disagree with that totally. While it is wonderfully close to the beach access, it is a little too far to walk for the normal family or even couple. But it's a very quick drive and has great parking and restroom facilities. My only other complaint is that while there are ceiling fans in every room, you can't turn the air below 75. This might not matter to most but for some of us it mattered greatly. It was extremely HOT the week we were there and we are use to turning the air down to at least 70. We made do but I would have really liked to know that detail before renting or even arriving at the property. Overall, the house has everything you need for a fun, relaxing stay at the beach and is perfect for families!!!

Nice property. Love Old Florida Village from previous stay.

Nice home for the price. More updates in the kitchen and baths would be the only thing I'd loved to see but overall great place.

Amazing Beach Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

We merged three families for one amazing beach vacation. We loved the house and all of its amenities. The two most valuable were by far the washer and dryer and the fully ready kitchen. We just had to add the grocery's. Everything, and I mean everything, was provided for us. We loved the spacious shared space but the ability to have private space was welcomed too. The neighborhood was quiet and friendly, and we took advantage of pool right across the street often. It was within walking distance of the beach but its location in a neighborhood gave us the best of both worlds. Communication was amazing- I had a question during our stay and Lynne answered it right away. We will definitely keep a file on this one and hopefully when we visit again it will be available. Thanks Lynne for making our stay so pleasant!
