About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 10

The Funky Lil' Beach Retreat exudes personality and eclectic, coastal charm. Just steps to the white sand beaches, this three bedroom, two bath beach shack is for the fun at heart. Recently renovated and outfitted with all new furnishings, this beachy retreat has all the comforts and necessities for a wonderful beach vacation. A wrap-around second story porch welcomes you with a whimsical arrangement of outdoor furnishings, perfect for taking in the gulf breezes and water views, acting as an extension of the interior spaces.

Inside, you will be taken back to the beach vacations of yesteryear, but with the necessary modern conveniences. The kitchen provides all the essentials with bar seating for four and an adjacent dining room capable of seating 8. The living room, designed for spending quality time with friends and family is light and bright with a game nook finishing off the space.

All three bedrooms are beachy, bright and fun and have their own appeal and whimsy. On the main level is a king bedroom with an adjacent full bath across the hall. Upstairs are two more large bedrooms, one with a King bed and the other, a kid's mecca, with two Queens and two Twins, perfect for beach sleepovers. A bathroom is shared between the two bedrooms.

Enjoy the outdoor living underneath the Funky Lil' Beach Retreat, with an open air porch adorned with picnic table, two cozy gliders and lots of room for lounging and relaxing.

Located perfectly on the east end of 30a between Alys Beach and WaterSound Beach, you are in the midst of all 30a has to offer. Just steps to the public beach access across the street and a five minute bike ride to the new HUB at Prominence, you will be so happy you chose The Funky Lil' Beach Retreat. It ain't fancy, but it's fun!

Some questions we receive from guests:

--How far is it to the public beach access?

It is approximately 300 steps to the public beach access, and then you proceed down a small stairway to the beach.

--Is there a pool at this home?

There is not, however, the Gulf of Mexico is very close by!

Reviewer Comments:

I love the house. It is located conveniently to the beach, just cross the street. House is clean with everything you need. There is a Keurig coffee maker, but not a regular Mr. Coffee so plan accordingly. The bike path is along 30A, and we loved that the bikes are delivered and ready for use when we got there. One thing was the neighbors next door had a drone and was circling on top of the rental. That was a total invasion of privacy. We think they were teenagers. Other than that we had the best time. It was a mommy getaway and the place was perfect!

Fun and chic!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time at this house and my girls are still talking about how much fun they had here! Hope to come back again in the near future. Very comfortable with lots of room for the adults in your group and teenagers! Owner was very attentive and easy to reach. Could use some new kitchen knives and bake ware. Would recommend to family and friends.

Fun and Funky!

We enjoyed our stay here for a girls weekend. It was a cute beach house with a short walk across the street to the beach. Everything was in driving distance!

cute little house in a nice spot

  • 5 of 5

Cute and clean little house. beach access right across the street. Quiet part of 30a , not much traffic. Great choice for those who do not like the condo village type places. Very nice and helpful property owners. Nice restaurants in rosemary beach an easy 2 miles bike ride down the road. Locking bicycle storage under the house. The pictures are very accurate. It was just what we hoped it would be.

Why Retreats on 30A chose Seacrest

This home was built in 1978 and was a treasured escape for just the family who owned it for decades. We didn't want the home to be bought and torn down, so we promised the previous owners we would do a few renovations, make sure the character remained intact, and offer it to vacationers who were looking for something more akin to their vacations when they were young. This isn't WaterColor, WaterSound or Rosemary Beach, but it is fun, clean and perfectly located.

What makes this cottage unique

With beach access directly across the street, how could you go wrong! And a short bike ride to the east takes you to Alys Beach and Rosemary, while a short ride to the west delivers you to Prominence and WaterSound Beach.


Enjoy the array of restaurants and shops just minutes from the Funky 'lil' Beach Shack. Whether looking for a gourmet meal or a sandwich on the run, 30a provides something for everyone. And now with The Hub open at Prominence, just down the road, the options are even more plentiful.
