Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week in this cute carriage house located in a great neighborhood of 30A. It was perfect for the two of us. We loved the location since we could walk to Rosemary Beach and Alys Beach, which we did on a daily basis. The carriage house is located in a quiet part of the neighborhood. There is free tram service offered, but we chose to walk everywhere and use the bikes provided. The pool is fabulous and where we spent every afternoon. The owner was fabulous to work with and the carriage house clean and comfortable. No need to bring beach chairs or umbrella, they are provided along with numerous beach toys if you are traveling with kids. We will definitely be back!

Perfect Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot even begin to describe how much we enjoyed our stay at Twinkle by the Sea! The location of this beautiful carriage house is in Prime Location of Alys Beach, and we rode the bikes everywhere from breakfast, to the pool, to Seaside! The interior of Twinkle is decorated so cute, and was perfect for my boyfriend and I - we especially LOVED the balcony access. At one point my boyfriend even said "This is the King of all 1-Bedroom Apartments :)" I wanted to personally thank Barbara for making the whole experience extremely SMOOTH from the time we booked, to providing a detailed document of the location/parking/security to checking out. I could not have asked for a better place to be for a weekend getaway! We loved it, and are looking forward to a return trip back!

Fabulous time in this great carriage house

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in Twinkle, and it was perfect for our needs.

My wife and I had a private room, and our kids had a sleeper sofa. For the amount of time we were actually in the room, the space was perfect.

Barbara was there when we arrived, and provided all the info we needed for a wonderful stay. There is a washer/dryer available for use anytime, and plenty of beach chairs, umbrellas and toys for a full day at the beach. No need to worry about packing all that extra stuff. There are also plenty of bikes to choose from, which saves the added expense of having to rent bikes on your own.

Location is great, and the tram stop for a ride to the beach is right at the end of the block.

Extra bonus is that it is in a quieter part of the neighborhood. Since we were there during our fall break, there were lots of other families there as well. However, noise was never an issue like I could see it might be in other parts of the neighborhood.

Highly recommend this place for anyone needed a small place for a great time at the beach.

Would love to visit again!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Twinkle Little Star. The place was just as expected and fit our family (including 5 yo and 15 month old) perfectly. It was my family's first time visiting 30A, and we're already talking of our next visit and encouraging our extended family to join us on additional trips! Thank you, Barbara, for making this visit wonderful and for recommending some great restaurants (Cowgirl Kitchen) as well!

Repeat Guests!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying with Barbara and Paul. The condo was great for my husband and I and our toddler. We love having full kitchen. The location is just a short walk to the pool and the tram service was great for getting us to the beach everyday. We are so thankful they always have bikes and plenty of supplies for the beach. That is one less thing we have to pack. It is very easy to communicate with for any questions you might have.

Twinkle was clean, cozy and beautiful. Well-located and everything we had hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

Twinkle was clean, cozy and beautiful. This property, and its many amenities (especially the bikes), was well-suited for our weekend getaway. We parked the car on day 1 and didn't get back in it until we left to head home. We bikes and walked to the pool, beach, dinner and shopping.
