About the property


Rent this adorable two bedroom designer beach plantation front cottage with private deck and yard. This is most likely one of the best PRIVATE & QUIET rentals close to the beach on the south side of 30A between the Seaside and Rosemary Beach! This pristine European style cottage has 10 foot ceilings, custom kitchen with granite countertops, marble floors, kingsize master bedroom, jacuzzi bathtub, gorgeous sunroom. TV's in every room, DVR / Internet/WIFI provided. A perfect beach retreat for you and your partner. Very quaint and romantic. Wrap around deck with a picnic table with umbrella, small grill, oversized beach chair and portable lounge chairs. Perfect for sun bathing. Beach Wagon available for the beach. Palm trees in front yard with private parking at end of no through way street. Three guest maximum. There is an additional fee of $50 per night for a 4th guest with approval.

Everyone loves the peace and quiet here. The home sits at the end of a no-throughway PRIVATE road but is still only 1.5 blocks from the beach on the South side of 30A just off of Eastern Lake Rd. It is also close to 30A bike path and Eastern Lake. One can rent bikes justblocks away on 30A. See photos for beach accesses which are at the end of the street on Eastern Lake Road. It is closer to the beach then when you stay at most of the seaside developments located on the south side of 30A! Come and enjoy!

My home is filled with my original artwork. I live in the back home studio space and enjoy visiting friends in Colorado

Why Connie Carlberg chose Seagrove Beach

My plantation style home with a palm trees oasis in the front yard is located just two blocks from the beach/Gulf of Mexico at the end of a no through street on the South Side of 30A with its own parking and private fenced in yard and decks. Located convienently in the middle of the action on 30A minutes from Seaside and Rosemary Beach. It is centered 20 minutes from Pier Park Panama City Florida and the Outlet Mall in Sandestin. Close to Destin Florida.

What makes this cottage unique

Very private and quiet! Wonderful palm trees in front yard, private deck off main kitchen. Open floor plan with high ceilings and light from every direction. Filled with original art, marble floors. Granite countertops in custom kitchen. Two bedrooms. One king size bed one double bed. Jacuzzi in bathroom which can be gotten to from each bedroom. Clean, modern and bright. VERY WELL MAINTAINED. Close to 30A bike path, restaurants, and just 5 minutes to the beach town of Seaside. The Sandestin Outlet Mall is only 20 minutes away. Other seaside towns such as Rosemary Beach, Alys Beach, Seacrest Community, and Gulf Place are just minutes away. Check out the amazing comments from all my guests!

This adorable 2 bedroom cottage is the perfect place for a couple's beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in Connie's cottage at Seagrove Beach! She is the perfect hostess, warm & friendly, and has provided everything you could possibly need for a trip to the beach. I love her eclectic decor and her art work that decorates the walls. The beach access at Eastern Lake is just a short walk away! We hope to be able to stay here again soon! Thanks, Connie!

Perfect beach place for girls' weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect beach home! This was a spacious, well equipped home for our girls' weekend. Everything promised was delivered. Connie went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable, including a very nice bottle of wine to greet us! The beach is a close walk, and Connie provided all we needed to get there! Thanks, Connie! Hope to see you again!

Cottage Close to the Sea

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the 2 bedroom unit for three nights. The cottage is located at the end of a short road and is very private. Connie was very accommodating and allowed us to modify our reservation without incurring additional charges. She was also very helpful with local restaurant recommendations (note: if you go to Red Bar, bring cash as that is the only form of payment they accept - good food). The cottage was very clean and private. The short walk to the beach only took a couple of minutes and the beach wagon was a lifesaver for carrying chairs, umbrella etc. The beach is beautiful with wonderful white silky sand. This is a beautiful part of the Panhandle and I would highly recommend for couples or families.

My husband and I were in the area for a wedding and this rental was perfect for the weekend. As described, it offered a large refrigerator, hot plate, outside grill, microwave and coffee maker. Who could ask for more for a couple who loves to dine out! Speaking of dining out, the location is an easy drive to many excellent 30A restaurants.

The layout is charming, as is the decorating. Upon entering the kitchen, one immediately feels relaxed, and it gets more cozy as one continues past the bathroom into the sleeping area with a bed with the most comfortable mattress. This rental was immaculate and the owner gave very concise directions for its use. Since we were busy with seeing the sights, eating out and attending wedding beach activities, we never used the beach area near this rental. This was also because the large outside deck in the well kept backyard, offered a delightful quiet spot to read and relax. We would definitely use this rental again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Darlene for taking the time to post your thoughts. You are a great writer in fact! The way you described coming into the quaint colorful kitchen is exactly how I feel every time I enter and then walk around to the bedroom. I know that you have many other things to do so thank you for doing this. I do think it is an ideal place for two people and is close enough to the beach but protected from all the 30A traffic and activity to give a person a real beach experience. Please come again! Connie
