Upscale 30A FL Rental House with Bikes + FREE BEACH TRAM + Lagoon Pool Access!!
Minimum age of primary renter:25
Had a great experience. No issues, great home, beautiful location.
Cute and spacious home!
This home was well decorated and very spacious. There were plenty of beds to sleep in and enough bathrooms to keep arguments at bay among our four children! Taking the tram to the beach made hauling our gear much easier. All the homes in the community are the same style and have a new, upscale, beachy feel. Our family loved having the shower head on the porch to rinse the sand off our feet. I was especially grateful for this once I discovered the only broom in the home was dust pan size.
Great place to stay!
Our family had such a great time. Second time renting this home. We love the screened in back porch! Enjoyed bikes, not to far from pool and overall good place to stay!
Coastal Chic Home Perfect for Our Family!
This was perfect for our family of five (2 adults 3 small children) plus visiting grandparents. We were able to give my parents the 1st floor master en suite (no stairs to climb) while we took the upstairs master ensuite and the kids took one bunk room. Several more people could have easily stayed in the other bunk room. The house is in GREAT condition for a rental and the decor is very stylish while still being livable. We enjoyed being able for all of us to gather in the enormous open concept LR DR Kitchen. The kitchen was gorgeous and well stocked. The LR has lots of seating and a great big coffee table. We enjoyed playing cards and board games most nights as a family. The highlight of the home was that it backed up to the wetlands (quiet and private) and had easy access to the nature trail. We LOVED its large screened porch off the LR and Kitchen. We were able to eat meals outdoors and nap in the bed swing without worrying about bugs. The kids also enjoyed playing with their toys in the 2nd floor screened porch during a rain storm. We really appreciated the hooks throughout the house for hanging things, the keyless entry (no keys to keep up with), the included bike rentals (we rented addl attachments for the kiddos and used them everyday), easy access to the pool (short walk down the street), beautiful beach (free tram rides), and the wonderful management service we received (a few minor issues came up during our stay which were easily resolved the same day). The only improvements we would recommend is moving the grill to a better location (we never used it because it was outside and down the stairs), you could add a couple of addl barstools on the ends (the island is large enough), and the WiFi was spotty in certain rooms and when all of us were trying to use it (it kept kicking us off but would be fine for a while once we reset it). But overall, a GREAT rental and would stay here again!
Great house in great location
Two families stayed here for spring break. House was very large and well supplied. Great location with easy access to pool beach and restaurants and shops.
Much Better Homes & Beach Communities on 30a
We have visited 30a every year for the last 15 years. This was our first stay in Seacrest. There was nothing about this community that would draw us back. It was a real disappointment compared to Watersound, Seaside, Watercolor, Rosemary, Seagrove, etc. The rental home was no better. The home uses the leasing agency called 30a Escapes. Prior to the trip, all of my requests for information or early check-in were either politely refused or not responded to. My personal information was given out and I was solicited by text and email from real estate agents looking to solicit my business. The agency also has a non-refundable damage waiver fee when a refundable deposit would be preferable. As far as the house itself, the pictures are much better than the reality. It is dark, with cheap interiors and well worn furnishings, the beds are uncomfortable and the bedding is old. The walls of the house are thin and I was woken up at 6:00am on two separate days by someone rolling the house's garbage can to the curb. Numerous items within the house were broken or missing features and a smoke detector with a bad battery that beeped till we unplugged it went without being replaced throughout the trip, despite being told it would be replaced the next day. The house does come with 4 bikes which is a necessity to get to the beach, however the bikes must be parked on the north side of 30a and it is still a bit of a walk from there. Next time we will venture elsewhere and with a different rental agency.
Kim, I appreciate all of your feedback and regret that you did not have the best experience in the Seacrest Community. All communities along 30A have unique qualities, features, and regulations in place. The Seacrest HOA pulls the garbage cans out as a courtesy for the community's renters. Unfortunately, this is done at an early time due to the number of properties in Seacrest. I will give your feedback to the owner as far as the decor, furnishings, etc... However, I was in the home last week and was actually admiring how well the home has held up during the past few rental seasons. If you would like to email me some specifics that I can pass along, that would be greatly appreciated. I apologize that the smoke detector battery was not replaced timely. That is not acceptable and we absolutely will correct that issue. Thank you again for the feedback and we look forward to hopefully having you back as a client of ours. Sincerely, Cassi Hollington, Vice President
