About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 4 Sleeps

Stay in this fabulous Carriage House, located in North Seacrest Beach on the east end of Highway 30A in the Florida panhandle. One will find delightful beachy décor in this one bedroom unit featuring a king bed with high quality linens. In the separate living room there is a sofa sleeper which will allow space for an additional two guests. The unit features a full kitchen with stainless appliances, granite countertops, and custom cabinets. Enjoy gourmet coffee with Keurig beverage service. Enjoy the refreshing Gulf breezes from two sets of French doors opening from the bedroom and living area. The balcony provides a great view over this quaint neighborhood. Unwind and relax in the jetted tub featured in the large spa-like bathroom.

Amenities for guest use include a fully stocked kitchen including basic pantry items, as well as a full-sized washer and dryer. Enjoy biking through the neighborhood and on the many trails when you use the bikes provided in the garage. Also provided are beach towels, beach chairs, and beach toys. The unit is complete with two flat screen tvs, a DVD/Blu-Ray player, a docking station, and wireless internet service.

Just two short blocks away is the famed 12,000 square foot resort pool that is the hallmark of North Seacrest Beach. If you prefer the beach, a short walk down the tree-lined path at Sunset Beach will lead you to the relaxing Gulf of Mexico. Better yet, from March through October, the neighborhood tram will provide complimentary curbside service to the pool or beach.

North Seacrest Beach offers an array of options with dining, specialty shops, and entertainment all within a short stroll. The famed Tom Fazio golf course at Camp Creek is only a mile away. Just 10 miles east is Pier Park in Panama City Beach with over 120 shops as well as an IMAX movie theater and children’s play area. Destin is 30 miles to the west. Nestled between Alys Beach and Rosemary Beach, North Seacrest is truly a destination you will want to visit time and time again.

The perfect beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED staying at Twinkle & the Artman’s were the most amazing hosts. They made sure we had everything we needed to make it the most perfect trip for our 9 month old’s first beach vacation. The size of house was just what we needed, the bikes, the neighborhood, beach & pool were perfect & we had the best time. Can’t wait to plan our next beach trip to Seacrest & stay at Twinkle!!

Owner's Response: Kelly, I am so thrilled that you chose Twinkle to make such awesome memories for your sweet family. I love when families come back year after year and children grow up loving SoWal and 30a as a second home. I hope this summer will be the start of that experience for your family! We will look forward to your next stay at Twinkle. Barbara

Fantastic trip for family of four

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time. The carriage house was perfect. We had everything we needed, and the hostess was friendly and helpful. We had bikes, toys, towels, beach chairs...we really can’t think of anything we needed that wasn’t provided. The pick up for the beach tram was convenient, and the drivers were friendly. The shops and restaurants at Seacrest, Rosemary beach, and Alys beach were bikeable or walkable. We had lots of options and really didn’t need to drive anywhere for good meals. The pool was busy, but that’s to be expected. It was very large, so even though it was busy people weren’t swimming all over you. We are hoping to make this our annual beach trip house!

Quaint little place in a beautiful setting.

  • 4 of 5

We were traveling from Cincinnati, Ohio, so, a long, long drive! Twinkle is a neat little place, which provided a comfortable overnight refuge while passing through to Orlando. Twinkle is conveniently close to everything. The beautiful beach is within walking distance, or the tram, which can be caught one street over. Well stocked, and very clean! There was a lot of literature to read, which is meant to be informative, however, to me, felt a bit overwhelming. A chart listing / spreadsheet of “need to knows” may be a better option to help with chaotic arrivals. The literature is meant to be read before arrival, but, through the chaos of unloading luggage, etc, you find yourself scanning for pertinent information. Would have liked to stay longer, but will definitely recommend this sweet little place!

A wonderful family getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The ocean on 30A is magically... crisp, crystal clear and almost Caribbean like water. If you have never experienced the ocean in this area, you need to pack your bags today and go now!

The carriage house was just the right size for our family of three. Surprisingly it felt very private, given the close proximity to the main house and other houses. Clean and nice big king sized bed. Bikes and beach toys were provided an added huge bonus for us! The massive lagoon pool was awesome!

Barbara was a great hostess!! She let us check-in early to accommodate our flight. She was extremely friendly without being overbearing.

Close to Rosemary and Aly's Beach (walk or bike). Just a short 25 minute drive to Watercolor, Grayton and Seaside.

Tram provided for the beach access across the street. We never rode on it, we just walked everyday to the beach. -it's a super easy walk.

Tons of great dining options very close by. -walk or ride bikes

Would definitely return to the carriage house :) Thanks for a great stay!

Owner's Response: Katelynn, Thank you so much for your beautiful review. I agree - the water rivals that of the Caribbean. Thanks for addressing all the points you did - you were very complete! We hope to see you on your next visit to 30A. Take care of that sweet little one. Barbara

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for the videographer for our daughters wedding. He stayed here with his family and small daughter and they were beyond pleased with the accommodations. It was a perfect place for them. They were able to enjoy both the pool and the beach. The owners were very accommodating and easy to work with. I would highly recommend this property!

Owner's Response: Christine, With all you had going on as the mother of the bride, I greatly appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review. You were so easy to work with and we loved having Justin and his family at Twinkle. When you need a quiet getaway for yourself, we would love to have you stay at Twinkle! Thanks, Barbara
