Beautiful fall trip!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at Sea La Vie!!

The house had everything we needed for our family! It was very spacious, and the decor was so nice and "beachy." The layout was perfect for a family that wanted lots of space to spend time together, but also offered quiet and privacy in the upper floors. My children loved the bunkroom, they retreated there every afternoon for some downtime. The location was also very good, the beach was a short walk and it was only a couple minutes drive to the neighboring beach towns. I would definitely recommend this home to other vacationing families!

Amazing family vacation

  • 5 of 5

In the eight years that my family has been traveling down to this area we have family found a home that fits us perfectly. Sea la Vie is an absolute gem in the beaches of South Walton area. The home is beautifully designed well-maintained and laid out perfectly to give you just enough space to have two different families. The view off of the top bedroom is absolutely gorgeous providing you a great space to enjoy coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening. The owners are wonderful to work with and have spared no expense and making this vacation home till I get home. From flip-flops when you walk in that are provided for you to go down to the beach to new appliances and plenty of linens they have thought of everything. We absolutely loved this home and have already booked for next year.

Beautiful home away from home on 30A!

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay in this home was one of the most relaxing experiences I can remember. While the weather didn't cooperate, we were so glad we had such a wonderful home to relax in! The week at Sea La Vie was just what we needed! The home is beautiful inside and out and very well maintained; you can tell the owners take great pride in their home. Everything we needed was available for preparing meals at home as well as trips to the beach. The owners go above and beyond to ensure the stay is everything you hope for, keeping in contact during the week and are always available for any questions. We will defiantly be back to 30A and this home, we didn’t want to leave!

Charming and relaxing vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We just finished our week at Sea La Vie and must say that we had a wonderful time! This was our 9th vacation to the area and this was BY FAR the best home we have ever rented. The views of the ocean were wonderful, the home was well stocked, very clean and very comfortable. An easy walk to the beach and the community pool was very close as well. The owners were in touch with us throughout the whole week seeing if we needed anything and we really appreciated that. We have already decided that we will definitely be renting this home again next summer.

One of our favorites

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th trip to the Seacrest area, and I have to say that Sea La Vie was one of our absolute favorites. The location, decor, views and amenities were top notch.

The home is located in a more quiet section of 30A just pass Alys beach on the way to Seaside. The house is actually on 30A so the ocean views from the second and third floor are amazing. There wasn't a day that went by where we didn't spend significant time staring at the Ocean. The 3rd floor deck is amazing!

The owners take great pride in their home. The inside of the house looks like a pottery barn magazine. Every room is very detailed and the same theme can be seen throughout. In the pictures it appeared that the microwave and refrigerator were older, but that is not the case. The appliances are very new and are made to look vintage. The washer and dryer are also brand new are the best working ones I have seen in all or rentals.

In addition the home is located at the entrance to the Cottages at Camp Creek, which is a small horseshoe development. Out of all of our trips to the area this by far was my favorite location due to the small number of cottages and people in the development.

Directly out the back door there was a short walk way that took you right to the pool. The pool was great because it was never too crowded and the proximity to the house is awesome. Beach access was also very close and easy to get to. Just a short walk across and up 30A. With having a tent, chairs, cooler and beach toys the short walk made a huge difference. Everyday we were able to find a location for our tent immediately to the right or left of the beach stairs. We brought our own stuff, but the owners also had chairs, beach cart and a tent for use in case you couldn't bring your own.

In terms of restaurants you will either need bikes or a car. The rides aren't long, but probably too long for a walk. The closest restaurant is George's, which is a upper end restaurant located in Alys beach. There is also a great coffee shop in Alys called Fonville Press, which is where we went everyday for our coffee.

We usually look for a different rental every time we come to the area, but I have to say that we would 100% consider Sea La Vie again for our next trip. Why take the chance of getting a rental you aren't a 100% thrilled with when you can stay at a place that checks all your boxes for a great beach vacation.
