About the property

Brand New Relaxing Beach House With 4 Bedrooms, 4 1/2 Baths

Welcome to Bliss! Your new favorite beach vacation spot! ALL NEW home, all new furnishings, all new everything!!! Bliss is unique in that it was built with renters in mind. After years of renting homes within Seacrest, the owners knew what worked best for families and built it with the goal of both entertaining and serenity. With 2 living spaces - one on bottom floor, the other on top floor - porches galore and plenty of private sleeping areas, you will get your many moments of vacation. Whether you are watching the children zoom around on their bikes in the cul-de-sac as you swing on the covered front porch, or while you are making shrimp gumbo inside the big cook's kitchen, you will be in heaven! Bliss is located just one row off 30A so you will miss the street noise from 30A but keep the Gulf views. Bliss is steps to the beach and pool and perfectly placed between Alys Beach and Rosemary Beach. It is a short walk to Seacrest Village with its fun live music, restaurants and shopping. The 3-story custom home has an open floor plan and was built with easy living in mind, stylish yet simple.

About Jamie May

We love the beach. Our visits to Seacrest from Atlanta became more frequent and more important. The beach is our means of reconnecting. We decided to build a paradise of our own and what better than to be able to share this dream with others!

Jamie May purchased this house in 2014

Why Jamie May chose South Walton

Seacrest North offers the peaceful neighborhood feel with quiet streets and the huge pool where you can either choose to relax (parents) or stay busy (kids). Seacrest provides the best location, walking distance to Seacrest Village, Rosemary, and Alys and a short distance to Seaside, Watercolor and Destin.

What makes this house unique

Brand new home, Gulf View, .25 mile walk to beach or optional free tram to beach, short walk to 12,000 square foot lagoon pools. Seating on all decks, wine fridge in cook's kitchen where island seats 4. Dining table seats up to 10 comfortably. Our home is comfortable and family friendly. It is on a quiet street so the children can safely ride bikes and our view of the Gulf is amazing. We designed this house to fit family and adult needs, with open-concept entertaining in mind. Each bedroom has HDTV and WiFi outfitted on each floor for the worker bees and iPad kiddos! We have an on-site handyman and 'gatekeeper,' both available 24/7 and do our very best to ensure every amenity is available.

Wonderful beach house!

  • 5 of 5

This is the best house we've stayed at in Seacrest/Rosemary! It's beautifully decorated and stocked with everything you'll need. It's a short walk to the pool and beach, and an easy bike ride to Rosemary and Alys. It was the perfect setup for our family, and we hope to be back soon!

Bliss is the perfect beach house!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were joined by 4 of our grown children for a week at Seacrest! Bliss was the perfect house for us!! Jill has created a home away from home! We had absolutely everything we needed for a fun and relaxing week at the beach! The open living area was perfect for meals, games and watching the Olympics. The bedrooms were comfortable, well appointed and quiet! The 3rd story was perfect for our son who had to put in a few hours of work each day and the balcony was a great place to get a glimpse of the water and to watch storm clouds roll in! The beach was walking distance for a group like ours. For groups with young children there's a shuttle that runs all day. It's an easy trip to the beach and pool! For everything else (except the grocery store) we rode bikes! It was a great week!! Many thanks to Jill for being so easy to work with and for providing such an amazing place for us to make family memories!!

We were lucky to be able to spend 4 weeks in this BEAUTIFUL home! We been staying in the same Seacrest Beach house for the past 8 years but decided we wanted something larger as our family has grown. Bliss was amazing! From the time we entered the front door we were in love! Maybe it was the beautiful, spacious home.... Maybe it was the adorable 40th birthday tiara, t-shirt and Bliss wine that Jill had left to greet us! Yes, she is just that thoughtful. Throughout our stay we felt like we were at a dear friend's home. Any question we had, any service we needed, Jill was ready to help. Simply amazing!

Over the course of our 4 week stay we hosted 30 guests, shuffling families in and out! All of them said the same thing ~ "This house is amazing!" The kitchen was well appointed featuring my favorite kitchen appliance, a Keurig coffeemaker! The kids LOVED the bunk room. All of the beds were very comfortable. Everyone loved the 3rd floor balcony and the front porch swing was occupied at all times!

Another perk to this house was the proximity to the pool. Just steps away! As with any house in this neighborhood there was a walk to get to the beach but it was so quick we always enjoyed it. One of our houseguest had a medical issue making it difficult to walk so we used the shuttle during her visit.... The great news about the tram was that we were always the first off the tram on our returns home because we were so close to the front of the neighborhood!

Last but not least... two bikes of your choice, two beach chairs and an umbrella set up daily on the beach. It was so nice to not have to carry a tent down to the beach everyday! We did however use the extra chairs from the storage closet... Yet another bonus!

If you are looking for the best house in Seacrest North with the best southern hospitality Bliss is the house for you! We already have our rental reserved for next year and can't wait to get back to Bliss!

A beautiful place to relax and enjoy our family!!

  • 5 of 5

"Bliss" was an absolutely wonderful home to relax and enjoy our family. My husband and I brought our family to Seacrest Beach and this home was just perfect! This was our 6th visit to the area, and as our family has grown this house offered everything we needed for a beautiful and relaxing stay! Jill did such a great job with the decor! Every room was cheerful, bright, and so comfortable. The balconies were so nice for morning coffee and evening views! The best part that my grandchildren loved was gathering on the terrific front porch with the awesome swing! We loved spending time with them after the beach or pool just hanging on the front porch. And I must include Jill in this review. She was so helpful! She returned my calls so quickly and was always so eager to help. One of the things we also loved is that Jill reserved an umbrella and chairs for the week and 2 bikes!! We added another umbrella and chairs and a couple of bikes and we were set for the week. A nice touch!!! Overall it was a great experience staying at "Bliss". We will definitely make this trip again and hopefully "Bliss" will be available for our next vacation to the Gulf!!

Great family memories

  • 5 of 5

Our week at Seacrest Beach was nothing short of fantastic! The house is perfect for a family vacation as it has separate sleeping areas for all. The grandchildren loved having their own room and so did we! The house is so well equipped, we wanted for nothing. Jill was very attentive to our needs and answered all questions immediately.

The walk to the beach and to the pool was short and the neighborhood is perfect for walks and bike riding. We plan to return for another family vacation next year!

Gorgeous home and very comfortable for our group of 15!

  • 5 of 5

First impression: stunning! Nice open floor plan and one of the cleanest places I've ever stayed! Beds and linens were so fresh and comfortable! It was dreamy! Jill was also such a pleasure to work with. She sent quick replies to any questions I had! Would definitely stay here again. My only thought (which was unrelated to the home itself) is that it did feel like quite a haul to get to the beach with 5 little ones in our group. The entry into the beach area has steep steps you must walk down. You cannot use any type of beach carts and this is strictly enforced. The distance is only a few minutes walk. It's just because we had so many little ones to keep up with and so much stuff to carry. The pool is super close though! It was right behind this house! We loved this house and will would definitely rent it again!

Owner's Response: Seacrest's complimentary trams help with the walk to the beach (especially with the littles in tow). So glad you had a nice stay.
