About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 11)

We have recently sold our beautiful home, but the new owners have also chosen to list their property on VRBO. We will miss our fantastic front porch, the roomy guest rooms, the relaxed, comfortable living area, the sun, the beach, the fun restaurants and shops, and the beautiful pool that is "hidden" in the center of our neighborhood. But you can still stay in this home and enjoy them by referring to the new owner's listing: # 987796.

About Katie Titus

We live in the Kansas City metro area, so we relish visiting the sun and sand - especially during the colder months. That Florida sunshine and beautiful beach have a way of lulling all your cares away!

We have two kids who are finishing college and launching their young lives. I’d say we were empty nesters, but we have two sweet rescue greyhounds at home who get most of mom’s attention when everyone else is away.

Katie Titus purchased this house in 2012

Why Katie Titus chose South Walton

We came to this area on vacation a while back, prompted by a number of friends who recommended a visit here. Everyone said that this area is absolutely gorgeous, and raved about the beaches. When we finally came down here we were blown away by the beauty of the area. We absolutely fell in love with Seacrest Beach in general, and this house in particular , as it has so much character and charm We are looking forward to spending many happy vacations with our friends and family, and sharing it with folks like you. With Destin's NW Regional Airport just 45 minutes away, and Beaches Airport in Panama City less than 20 minutes from our front door, the trip is easier than ever.

What makes this house unique

We love the quiet bustle of the neighborhood, seeing families pedaling down the road together and packing up the tram for a day at the beach. This neighborhood is very family-oriented, from the Tram Drivers to the Pool Attendants and the folks who Rake the Gravel parking spaces and set up and retrieve your Trash Bins twice weekly (!!), everyone's objective is for YOU to have a wonderful time. This is a very friendly, convenient, quiet, well-kept neighborhood full of charm and conveniences.

Wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful.....

  • 5 of 5

Blown away. From the time we arrived at the house and opened the door, the place is spectacular. It is a home away from home. Everything you need is already there. From chairs for the beach to WiFi to stay as connected as you want to be. We will be going back again. Free shuttle to the beach and the pool is literally less than a 2 min walk from the front door.

Owner's Response: We're so happy to know that you enjoyed the house and our neighborhood so much! We appreciate our neighborhood's tram service so much. It is so easy to schlep chairs, towels, kids, etc. to the beach when you can ride the tram the short distance for free!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at several locations along the Gulf Coast and this is our 2nd visit to the Seacrest area. This is by far the best stocked home from paper products, to a gas grill that works, and sharp knives to work with. Everything you need for a beautiful week at the beach. The home is beautifully decorated and my grandchildren Loved the bunk beds. Enough seating in the family room for all so we could enjoy the Olympics after a busy day at the beach.

Highly recommend night swim at the pool. Kids loved that and was a great way to end the day. The owners are wonderful to work with and make you feel right at home.

We will return!!

Awesome experience; fantastic rental and owners... will return for sure!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough great things about this rental. The location is fantastic within Seacrest; right near the pool and an easy walk to the beach. We loved the floorplan because it had two things we couldn't easily find in Seacrest; a big front porch for gathering and a large open family room. This one had both!!! The home was SO well equipped with full supplies of almost anything you'd want. It's so nice to check in and to not have to go buy every little thing. And everything was nice. I have checked into places that claimed to have a working grill, just to be disappointed, but the owners here spared no expense. From the awesome webber grill to the the pottery barn decor, to the soft sheets and awesome bedding; this picky girl couldn't be happier!!!! The owner, Katie, is also a delight. She was so quick to respond and gave us our deposit back the day we checked out!! We will definitely be back to this home next year!!

Owner's Response: We are thrilled that you enjoyed your first experience at "Ahh's in the Sand," and that you plan to return again. That's been our aim from the start - to cultivate a wonderful group of guests who would like to return year after year. We would love to have you back! Our home is unique with its roomy first floor layout, making it easy for large groups to gather together comfortably. That's what made us fall in love with the home years ago, and it's fun to know that our guests have made happy memories there!

This was our second stay at Ahh's in the Sand and certainly not our last!

  • 5 of 5

The home is decorated beautifully, well equipped, clean, and close to everything! We walked to the huge neighborhood pool and to many of the near by restaurants. We also walked to the center of town each evening for ice cream, live music and enjoyed the community of Seacrest.

The home owners are easy to work with and very accommodating! We can't say enough good things about this lovely home in one of the best and most beautiful areas of the Florida panhandle!

This house was beyond our expectations and bigger than it appears in the pictures.

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time at Ahh's in the Sand! The house was so beautiful and bigger than what we were expecting from the pictures. We truly appreciated all of the items that were supplied in this house. We've stayed in other houses and this house was just so conveniently stocked for cooking and daily household needs. We were especially grateful for the ample supply of beach towels and chairs provided. The beach shuttle was a really nice accommodation that we could use getting all of our kids and beach stuff down to the beach. However, I recommend calling at least 30 minutes to an hour ahead if you have a scheduled time you are going to the beach b/c the shuttle service gets very busy around 10am. Some days we got lucky and just waved one down but they usually go to houses in the order they receive their calls. The beach was still close enough though to walk. We walked several times, it was just easier to take the shuttle when available. We loved sitting on the large porch every morning and evening. We would stay in this house again the next time we plan to visit Florida!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Misty. You've provided some great tips regarding the tram service, because the neighborhood is a fun and bustling community in the summer months. We've increased the number of trams that serve the neighborhood, but there are certainly periods during the day when things bottleneck for a time. But as you note, it's also an easy and short walk to and from the beach as well! We're so happy you enjoyed your stay, and would love to have you back again soon!
