About the property

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

Restrictions Mar. 31 - Apr. 7 - inquire first!

'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 Seacrest Beach

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!

So many great things about this house! There were 10 of us total (4 adults and 6 kids). The layout of the house was absolutely PERFECT! The kids had plenty of room to spread out and not be right on top of the adults, which was so great. The house was VERY clean and decorated beautifully with super comfortable beds, awesome water pressure and plenty of hot water, super cold and working air conditioning, ceiling fans throughout, nice thick towels, plenty of beach towels and beach toys, and all the comforts of home. The house itself is tucked back on a quiet, non-busy street. The house had a basic supply of toilet paper, paper towels, and trash bags; however, we found being there a week we needed more so plan accordingly and make a store run for condiments and laundry detergent as well. Michelle and the local house manager, Noelle, were super responsive if we had any questions.

The location can’t be beat! Seacrest is awesome and a private community. All the neighbors and staff in the community were so nice and helpful. The free tram is a huge benefit, giving you a ride directly to the beach and pool, which we needed with all of our kids and stuff! Ha! We ended up reserving beach chairs and umbrellas thru a local company to ensure we had front row access to the ocean. Definitely not a requirement for your stay but we found it to be a nice benefit knowing our beach location was reserved every day. The Seacrest pool is massive and really clean and we found it to be a perfect way to relax and wrap up our days after being at the beach all morning. Only residents in this private community have access to this pool and we were so thankful to have it! Seacrest Village is within walking distance to the house. We loved going there every day. There’s several restaurants (all great food), coffee house, ice cream and candy shop, local store for any last minute items, cute boutiques, the best donuts, bike rentals, and nightly live music. We usually wrapped up our evenings there as the kids loved to dance, get a nightly treat, and play with new friends. And us adults loved relaxing there too! Seaside is just a few miles down 30A so we drove there a few nights during our stay. Hands down, we preferred our Seacrest location and amenities though.

We will definitely be back and highly recommend The Hoot House to all! Thank you, Michelle and family, for sharing your beautiful and comforting home with us. We absolutely loved everything about it!

Great location, extremely family friendly!

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 generations staying at Hoot House and it was wonderful! Location near pool and beach is perfect. The house is beautifully decorated and use of space is Good. The kitchen is stocked nicely for cooking meals.

The Grill needs some rehab and one of our trundle beds had broken slats and difficult to get out. Called, but maintenance didn't come out to fix it. We would definitely stay at Hoot House again!

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.
