It's a Wonderful Life Indeed!

  • 5 of 5

This home has everything you need for a great vacation to the beach. The location is great...literally 5 minutes walk to the beach and right across the street from the ample community pool complex. The house has plenty of room for a large group. We had 2 families with 8 people total and never felt cramped. In fact we had 1 bedroom that wasn't ever even used. Having 3 full bathrooms sure did help to give us plenty of room for all the showers that needed to happen after a day at the beach. There is also an outdoor shower to cut down on all that sand before it ever gets to the house. The living room has an enormous 80 inch TV for the few hours you actually spend indoors. All the bedrooms have TV's and DVD players, though we never really used them. The kitchen has all the cooking utinsels and flatware that you might need to prepare meals, but with so many fabulous restaurants so close, we didn't do much cooking. The newly renovated kitchen has top notch appliances though which is nice. This was our first vacation to 30A and are very satisfied with the Seacrest Beach location. It's a short bike ride or quick car trip to everywhere on 30A. We can't wait to return. Thanks for the great experience!

Fantastic home in a wonderful community! Will rent again for our family vacation next year!

  • 5 of 5

It's a Wonderful Life was a great home in Seacrest Beach off of 30A that accommodated our family perfectly. The Seacrest Beach community is amazing. Our family had a great time at the pool which is huge! The layout, parking, kitchen and community were amazing. The golf cart service which took us to the beach worked out really well also. We were within walking distance of at least a dozen great meal spots, Rosemary Beach and only 3 miles from the HUB which makes for a great family fun evening of fun. It's a Wonderful Life is a great home with tons of add ons and value. I will rent this house again next year!

Poor experience

  • 1 of 5

We were woken every morning at 6:00am by construction workers working on the house next door. Loud hammering and saws were every morning. The chair on the front porch was broken and management said that they would replace it and it did not happen. Management should have let us known before booking and spending so much money on a place that a house next door was under construction. They told us that they had no way of knowing about a house next door, how is that when they should be checking on the property before and after people arrive and check out. A very awful experience that was suppose to be a relaxing vacation. Not one morning in a weeks stay could we sleep past 7am!!!

Owner's Response: The home next door is in the final stage of construction and finalizing painting. We immediately reached out to the HOA and had security drive by every morning to check on the start time. The community allows work to begin at 7 am and security confirmed that the workers did adhere to that time. We ordered a new front porch chair right away to replace the broken one; however it did not come in during your week long stay. 30A is one of the most active areas in the country regarding real estate so there is always a remodel or new construction under way in the communities here. We work very diligently with the various HOA’s to ensure our guests are not affected unnecessarily. This is an amazing home across from the best resort pool on 30A and we are extremely upset that you were awoken each morning at 7 am. Hopefully the fantastic home, gorgeous beaches and weather helped to make up for this during your trip!

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is PERFECT!! There were 2 families and in-laws in our group and there was room to spare! Many times places are either geared toward the kids or the adults (very rarely both), but this was the perfect place for all of us! This home is so fun with an awesome layout and updates throughout. We love this area and this home is in a fantastic location! Everything is within walking distance (food, shops) and the bike riding path for the kids was great! The pool is incredible and mere steps from the house. The shuttle service was wonderful! We will definitely be back!
