About Gary Hinrichs

We fell in love with Seagrove Beach and the 30A experience on our first family vacation in 2004. Over the years we have made many family memories including; bouncing on the beautiful emerald green waves at our neighborhood beach access, building sand castles, catching crabs, riding bikes through the many scenic neighborhoods, paddle boarding on Western Lake, catching Red Snapper and Grouper on a chartered fishing trip, soaking in the sun on our pool deck, star gazing from our third floor observation deck and eating some of our favorite beach foods like smoked tuna dip or key lime pie!

Gary Hinrichs purchased this house in 2012

Why Gary Hinrichs chose Seagrove Beach

We chose Always Summer because it fits all the criteria of a perfect vacation home on 30A:


Our home is centrally located on 30A with the beach communities of Seaside, Watercolor and Grayton Beach just 5-10 minutes west and Alys Beach, Seacrest Beach and Rosemary Beach just 5-10 minutes to the east. It is easy to enjoy the many unique restaurants, shops, architecture and activities that each of these communities has to offer. If you want to visit Pier Park at Panama City Beach you can drive 25 minutes east or if you want to enjoy the shopping, restaurants and activities of Destin you can get there by driving 30 minutes west.

Beach Access

We wanted a home that would have a short, easy and safe walk to the beach for young children and elderly grandparents. It's just a three minute walk front our front door through a quiet neighborhood before you have your feet in the sugar white sand of the Emerald Coast.

Private Pool

We wanted to enjoy the refreshing feel of taking a plunge into a freshwater pool after a day in the salty ocean water. Our pool is truly private with a large pool deck surrounded by a privacy fence and a large green space behind the fence. The pool lights make it possible to enjoy this space even after the sun goes down.

First Floor Bedroom

We wanted to make sure that family members and guests that have difficulty with stairs would have easy access to a bedroom and bathroom.

What makes this house unique

Quiet Neighborhood

Our home is close to the beach yet hidden in a quiet neighborhood on a dead end road with little traffic.

Large Private Pool Deck

Many homes that boast a private pool have a pool the size of a postage stamp. Our pool and pool deck have plenty of space for everyone and it truly is a private space surrounded by a privacy fence and green space behind the fence.

Lots of Deck Space

With five different porches and deck spaces there is plenty of room for guests to find solitude.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family had an amazing time at your house last week! Everything was beautiful, clean and just as described. We loved how convenient we were to everything and the walk to the beach was quick and easy. The only thing we would have changed is that we wish we could have stayed longer! :) thank you again for your wonderful communication and allowing us to rent your house.

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

Inviting homey place in a quiet, friendly neighborhood. Conveniently located to all communities on 30A. Immaculately clean, nice pool area. Beachy decorated bedrooms with comfy beds and super cute tower room. Short, safe walk to the beautiful beach, crossing a gravel road and one paved residential, low traffic street. Be sure and rent bikes for fun cycling into lovely Seaside to enjoy food, shopping, concerts and more. Owner is TOPS! -No complicated orders or demands.; very reasonable, understanding , cooperative and efficient. Extremely friendly manager, only several doors away, should you require anything. Best time we have ever had on 30A in this relaxed, down to earth people friendly area.

Wonderful Week in Seagrove Beach

  • 5 of 5

House was exactly as described nicely furnished, clean, awesome pool and backyard space to relax, close to shopping and our favorite Bubba's Seafood Market. Gary responded quickly to all our questions and offered suggestions on all areas of interest we had during our stay. Beach access was quick and easy down an adjacent side street. Went deep sea fishing on "Rewind" out of Destin harbor and got our limit. Thanks for the delicious donuts on Sunday morning Gary they were out of this world and a welcoming touch with the house. Great house and location.

Owners are accommodating and go over and beyond to make you feel at home there. The layout was perfect for one or two families. The kitchen is fully stocked with what you might need. The pool and deck are perfect for a day off from the beach. Loved every minute of our stay and will definitely be back.

Always Summer

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Always Summer! The house was clean and close to the beach. It was in a quiet area but close to everything and off of 30A. You don't have to cross 30A to get to the beach and that was one of our favorite things! The heated pool was a must for us. We will definitely be staying again!

The perfect house for our family holiday

  • 5 of 5

What a great find! Loved this house & location. The rooms were clean with plenty of space to spread out. We stayed a week with extended family & could't have asked for a better place given the price & location. Our host was extra helpful accommodating our group & communicating before we arrived. Our teens loved the privacy of the tower room & the heated pool was nice in November. The house is tucked away on a quiet street with a 2-3 minute walk to the beach. The perfect getaway. Thanks you so much!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! Having a bedroom and bath on the main level was great. The 2 bedrooms upstairs with attached baths were perfect as well. The tower room is so cute, just a nice place to read and relax. The beds were all comfortable, no complaints! We chose this home because of the heated private nice to come back to the house and use the pool after a day on the beach. The walk to the beach is not bad at all, no traffic to worry about while crossing the road. The beach of course is beautiful, the water so clear and blue. We would definitely choose this house again. Had a wonderful family just went by too fast!!
