About the property

'Hoot House' - 5 Bdr/4 Bath - 2 King Beds - Close To Rosemary!

'Hoot House' is a beautifully decorated home in the heart of Seacrest Beach, located between Rosemary Beach and Alys Beach, and only 10 minutes from renowned Seaside and Watercolor communities. Situated in a prime location, this 4 bedroom (with optional 5th bedroom on the 3rd floor), 4 full bath home is a short walk to the 12,000 sq. ft. lagoon pool, and the beach is only a short stroll. If you don't feel like walking, use the complimentary open air shuttle to take you and your beach items straight to the white sandy dunes!

Hoot House features six decks to sip your morning coffee, rustic pine hardwood floors throughout the entire home, flat screen TVs in all rooms, plus Wireless Hi-Speed Internet, and all new furniture and linens.

The first level of the home includes an open and inviting living room, a custom made 10 foot harvest dining table, an expansive kitchen with granite counters, breakfast bar, and stainless steel appliances. The main level also features a large coastal themed, sun-kissed bedroom with a King size bed and private balcony, plus a large full bathroom with granite.

Moving up the stairs to the second floor, you will find a beautiful, spacious Master Suite with coastal chic decor. This room includes a King bed with luxurious Egyptian cotton sheets, a large private balcony, and private en-suite bathroom with marble counter top, double vessel bowl sink vanity, vintage claw design tub, and large walk in shower.

Two additional bedrooms and a full bathroom are also located on the opposite end of the second floor. Both of these rooms have twin over full bunk beds with a twin trundle bed. One bedroom has a cute nautical sailboat theme, and the other bunk room has a fun and colorful tropical theme.

The third level features a dynamic space that can be used as a second living area complete with a wet bar and wine fridge, a flat screen TV, and a table perfect for family games. This space can also be used as a 5th bedroom as it has a comfortable queen sleeper sofa and a full bath - all in a cute surf theme that your kids will love! There are also two large balconies overlooking the beautiful Seacrest neighborhood. Enjoy a relaxing nap in the hammock or happy hour with family and friends in the cozy conversation pit!

Hoot House is designed to accommodate two couples with children comfortably. Please note that it is not designed for more than two families or large adult groups due to the nature of the bunk bed rooms.

Hoot House has 2 off-street parking spots and street parking next to the house. The house is equipped with games, sand beach chairs, beach towels, and beach toys!

Once you arrive, you don't even need to get back in your car as it is a short stroll or bike ride to the best dining and unique boutique shopping in Rosemary, Alys and Seacrest Beach. And of course the kids will LOVE walking to the cute candy, ice cream and yogurt shops right around the corner! For those who love golf, Tom Fazio's Camp Creek Golf Course is literally just minutes away and is open to the public.

About Michelle Kahoiwai

We live in Alpharetta, Georgia. We have two energetic boys, ages 6 and 9.

Michelle Kahoiwai purchased this house in 2014

Why Michelle Kahoiwai chose Florida

We have been vacationing on 30A for the last ten years and just fell in love with this area. We decided to buy this house after we rented a home in Seacrest Beach for spring break. We just love walking to all of the shops and restaurants nearby in Seacrest Village and Rosemary, and of course our boys LOVE biking to the Sugar Shak and Sweet Peddler candy stores. The area is so peaceful and relaxing, and the beautiful white sand beaches and huge lagoon pool are unbeatable. We especially love the beach tram - we just throw our coolers, bags and chairs in the back and it takes us straight to the beach!

Very Homey and Spacious Beach House

  • 4 of 5

Overall my stay was very nice. My family and I spent the entire week at the Hoot House and really enjoyed our stay. while there are always good and not-so-good experiences with every vacation, the good outweighed the bad. I will start with the good first: Hoot House is very well laid out and very roomy--loved the bedrooms and spacious porches that allowed you to enjoy the scenery at all times; the back porch where we spent most evenings grilling on the back grill was like cooking in the mountains--trees all around the back porch area created such a laid back experience; furniture was all very comfortable and clean; facilities were all clean and A/C worked very well.

Some of the not-so-good things include: the wifi is very weak - as a matter of fact because I am a businessman that needs to work some on any trip, I could not stay here again because of this reason; the outside porches (especially the one at the one in back where grilling station was) does NOT have ceiling fans - this made it a little warm in evening when trying to cook; there is definitely an issue with deer flies over in Seacrest Beach which reeked major havoc on my wife :-( ; two of the bedrooms had bunk bed set ups which is NOT ideal when you are staying with all adults -- this setup would be perfect for smaller children but definitely not made for adults ; also the neighbors directly behind the backyard area had 3 dogs that messed (crapped) everywhere--this was nasty .

Overall, a great place that I would recommend keeping the above in mind.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Although, we are disappointed that this is the first review we have received that has not been 5 stars, we appreciate your feedback. As for the wifi, we have never had an issue with speed, nor have we ever had a complaint in four years. We use Mediacom (as do most of Seacrest) and pay for the fastest speed available in the 30A area. The receiver is under the TV in the cabinet, so it is of course faster on the 1st floor than the 2nd or 3rd floors. We apologize for the dog mess you encountered. Other rental homes around us may allow pets, and unfortunately we can't control other renters' behavior. This is not a chronic issue for our house as most renters are responsible pet owners. It is hot in the summer in Florida! Thank you for the recommendation to install ceiling fans on the porch. Finally, we are sorry the setup wasn't ideal for your party. We did include photos of both bunk rooms as well as a description of those rooms being bunk rooms. Thank you and we hope you enjoyed your vacation!

Location was wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Shared this house with friends. So glad everything for beach was available at the house & didn't have to pack it all. Tram was wonderful for hauling everything to the beach or pool. Area is very pricey but chain restaurants, Target, Wal-Mart etc. all just a few minutes down the road so can be budget friendly too.

The family and friends loved the way Hoot House welcomed us with space, convenience, and decor.

  • 5 of 5

Hoot House was ideal for our group in so many ways. From the open kitchen dining living room design for times together to the private porches and bedrooms for quiet time, it is ideal. The location is well centered for dining, shopping, biking and going to the beach yet far enough away from main roads for peace and quiet at night. The community and associated amenities were so convenient and safe for our group of young women to walk around together in the evenings or bicycle or go to the beach. Just a wonderful experience that we look forward to doing again.

Perfect house in every way! Location, decor, maintained.....

  • 5 of 5

We had a great spring break visit to Seacrest and the Hoot House! We loved the location in Seacrest, which was closer to the Seacrest Village side but also very manageable to the pool with a very close tram stop for the beach. The decor was beautiful -- loved the big family dining table and the beds were very comfortable. The house was the cleanest I have ever rented, the kitchen was well appointed with quality pots and pans, etc and the sheets and towels were so soft. We will definitely stay in the Hoot House again! The owners focus on the details which is rare in rentals!

Fave VRBO ever!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Hoot House! It was beautiful, clean and so conveniently located. We were able to walk to Seacrest, Rosemary, bike to Alys and some of the other surrounding beaches, and easily drive to the grocery store and other places we wanted to visit (such as Camp Helen State Park, which was a really great side trip!). We had plenty of space for our family of 2 adults and 5 kids. Everyone was very comfortable and we didn't feel like we were on top of each other. We loved that the area was very safe and our older kids could have independence on their bikes. The beach was so easy to get to- even the tram drivers were great! We will definitely rent Hoot House again when we return to the area!
