About Lynne Andrews

My family and I traveled to this area of Santa Rosa Beach, FL every summer beginning in 1977. We fell in love immediately! When the opportunity came for my husband and children to build a home in Santa Rosa Beach - it was a dream come true! The sugar sand beaches and tourquoise water is breathtaking morning, noon or night. And by far, our beaches are among the cleanest and white I've ever experienced. I've been amazed at how many guests come back year after year to create family memories of their own! What an experience it is! Once you've vacationed at 'A Pineapple Under the Sea' you'll want to return to paradise again and again!

Lynne Andrews purchased this house in 2005

Why Lynne Andrews chose South Walton

Old Florida Village was a great location to buy because of the great neighborhood and family-friendly appeal and it also is convenient to shopping, restaurants, the beach and steps away from the pool.

What makes this house unique

One of the most popular features of 'A Pineapple Under the Sea' is the Surrey Family Bicycle for 5 that comes as a bonus for my guests. Another great aspect is the luxury mattresses in all of the rooms and the fact that my house is fully equipped for hosting a neighborhood party or cooking a full Thanksgiving meal! I've done both!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for opening your home to us for a fantastic stay! The home is beautiful and we truly enjoyed our week there. My poor kids actually cried this morning when we packed the car! Once again, thank you for one of the best family vacations ever from the 90 year old down to the 3 year old, everyone got the getaway they so richly deserved!

Blessings and peace,

Billie Edwards

Wonderful vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Pineapple Under the Sea. It was quaint, cozy and comfortable. L The house was very clean and had everything that you need for a week long stay. An early review said that it needed updating, but I found that it only added that much more charm to the house. It was comfortable enough that I wasn't worried about kicking my feet up, relaxing or actually using the house. It was just like being at home. The community pools are very close by and the neighborhood is quiet and has a wonderful family atmosphere. The descriptions says that it's a close walk to the beach. I would disagree with that totally. While it is wonderfully close to the beach access, it is a little too far to walk for the normal family or even couple. But it's a very quick drive and has great parking and restroom facilities. My only other complaint is that while there are ceiling fans in every room, you can't turn the air below 75. This might not matter to most but for some of us it mattered greatly. It was extremely HOT the week we were there and we are use to turning the air down to at least 70. We made do but I would have really liked to know that detail before renting or even arriving at the property. Overall, the house has everything you need for a fun, relaxing stay at the beach and is perfect for families!!!

Nice property. Love Old Florida Village from previous stay.

  • 4 of 5

Nice home for the price. More updates in the kitchen and baths would be the only thing I'd loved to see but overall great place.

Amazing Beach Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

We merged three families for one amazing beach vacation. We loved the house and all of its amenities. The two most valuable were by far the washer and dryer and the fully ready kitchen. We just had to add the grocery's. Everything, and I mean everything, was provided for us. We loved the spacious shared space but the ability to have private space was welcomed too. The neighborhood was quiet and friendly, and we took advantage of pool right across the street often. It was within walking distance of the beach but its location in a neighborhood gave us the best of both worlds. Communication was amazing- I had a question during our stay and Lynne answered it right away. We will definitely keep a file on this one and hopefully when we visit again it will be available. Thanks Lynne for making our stay so pleasant!

Fabulous trip... Will return

  • 5 of 5

Had a fabulous time at Santa Rosa. The house is in a great neighborhood. Short walk to the beach and right across from the pool. We walked to Gulf Place in the mornings for coffee and muffins. Beach area is awesome...You have your own space... Not crowded even Memorial Day weekend. Location to seaside and Destin is just a short drive. Will definitely return for another stay. Did not see the Surrey Bike. Only advice is if you plan on walking to the beach bring a rolling cart for your items. It's a short walk but if you have kids there's a lot to take. Area by Goatfeathers is nice, restrooms very clean and Goatfeathers has a happy hour at lunch... Awesome price on oysters. Be sure to visit Local Cafe. Great food also

I rarely ever provide a review but I felt compelled based on how impressed I was with this property and how grossly inaccurate the previous review was found to be. The setting is fantastic and the home itself is very tranquil and first class in every way. In fact this property is clearly not a typical rental property but in fact is an actual home that the owner is willing to share with others. Everything about this place is second to none. The furnishings are top of the line (clearly the couches and bar stools must be brand new), the fixtures are very high quality (not one leaked by the way as I checked!!) there were ample towels and yes I also checked the dryer and to my surprise your washer and dryer are nicer than I have at my home!! This property is clearly not only professionally decorated but loaded with special touches and an abundance of love. I know it sounds silly to comment on dish ware but in keeping with the pineapple theme even the dishes were first class. My only recommendation is going to surprise you. Raise your rates!! No one is going to expect this quality in a rental at this price point. Thank you for opening up your pineapple treasure to me and please maintain my contact information in the event you ever want to sell this jewel. Best Regards

Clean and nicely furnished. Just didn't think to look in dryer for towels. Few small items need repair faucets that were dripping and handle broken on microwave. Just thought you would like to know. If ever in area would rent again Thanks Mary R Farthing Rock Hill SC

Owner's Response: Hi Mary F. - glad to know you found all of the extra towels in the dryer! We've upgraded all the towels and make sure now to include even more than I did before in all three bathrooms! All of the concerns you brought to my attention have been repaired. Didn't realize that would constitute a one-star review of my property since your request was immediately addressed. However I appreciate your bringing it to my attention. Thank you.
