About Laurel Enloe

We purchased this property in October 2014. Two months were spent renovating and furnishing it with a goal of providing ourselves, and our guests, with a little bit of luxury and relaxation in a beautifully decorated space. We all deserve the best while on vacation. Sea La Vie --- our little piece of paradise.

Laurel Enloe purchased this house in 2014

Why Laurel Enloe chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We fell in love with this peaceful and serene strip of sand on the gulf coast which also has several fun spots nearby to be social and meet new people. The sand is pristine, the water warm, blue, and beautiful. The privacy of the beach makes this the perfect spot for relaxation.

What makes this house unique

The thing we enjoy the most are the Views! The home has unobstructed ocean views from almost every room including the Kitchen, living and dining room areas as well as the master and guest bedrooms. Guests will enjoy high quality bedding, remodeled bathrooms, new washer and dryer, top of the line outdoor furniture, and fire pit for outdoor living at it's finest! Each of the 3 balconies provides special moments. Morning coffee on the rocking chairs outside the master suite is delightful. BBQ's, social gatherings, and sunsets on the second level deck are spectacular. Our favorite spot however is our own private beach on the ground level. We have cushioned lounge chairs to soak up the sun during the day and adirondack chairs circling a wood burning fire pit on the beach during the evenings. We hope our guests enjoy it like we do...

Sea La Vie -- throw your cares to the sea...and enjoy!

Fantastic Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

This house is a fantastic beach home. The location is wonderful with several great restaurants within a short walk. I highly recommend the Salt Rock Grill that is just a mile away.

We have stayed at many VRBO rentals and this is one of the best. The décor, the amenities, and the view put this house at the top of our list. The sunsets were gorgeous. The master bed was so soft and comfortable.

The property owner and property manager were very easy to communicate with and added nice details like a basket of snacks and drinks with handwritten notes at check-in. I would absolutely stay here again and would recommend this home to anyone who wants a relaxing beach vacation.

Fantastic holiday in a perfect beachfront house

  • 5 of 5

My cousine and me together with our husbands - we are from Germany - booked this house for our 9 days summer holiday. The house is really fantastic! If possible we would return on the spot!

The position of "Sea la vie" just a few steps from the beach could not be topped. Every evening we were sitting on the deck and watching the sunset. Two times we lightend a fire in our private fire pit and watched the stars. The beach is beautiful. We never went out for dinner because we loved to take our dinner on the lower deck, having a barbecue using the new gas grill.

The house is really spacious with a large kitchen, well equipped and lovingly decorated. The view from the main sleeping room is unique. And everything is spotlessly clean!

The owner Laurel and also Bennett and Rose from the maintenance team were wonderful and we want to thank them for there great support!!

We would love to visit again...

Perfect place on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time, mostly staying at the house and on the beach. Fabulous kitchen, bedrooms, etc. We took the trolley once, but took an uber after that since the trolley wasn't reliable. Weather was perfect. We had to time our dinners for before or after sunset because the sun was so bright. Some shades would be nice for that time of day. We hope to visit again!

paradise on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with our decision to stay at "Sea La Vie". The house was extremely well-appointed, beds were comfy and the location was perfection! To be able to wake up to the sound of the waves, walk on the beautiful beach which was right out our front door and to enjoy a bonfire in the fire pit on the beach, was everything we could have asked for.

Amazing in Every Way!!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property as a last minute family vacation. Our stay at Sea La Vie was nothing short of perfect. We all agreed that it was the BEST beach house we have ever rented! First, I must mention the property is literally only a few steps to the beach. The house has its own private sandy beach area just in front of the house with extremely comfortable cushioned lounge chairs, umbrellas, a fire pit, and Adirondack chairs - we loved having this private outdoor space to gather and enjoy the sun and sunsets! The public beach is only 5-10 more steps and it is a fabulous flat beach with beautiful white sand and it was very uncrowded. The beach is perfect for walking! Now for the house itself: it is so beautifully decorated and accessorized it could be in a magazine. Not a single detail has been missed! The house seems much larger than the square footage implies. The kitchen is very large and spacious! The owners have thought of everything! This home does not seem like a rental property because everything is so well appointed. The beds and the bedding are super comfortable. All the linens are very high quality. Our favorite "room" was the main level balcony - it has plenty of comfortable seating and was a great spot to gather! The temperatures were perfect and there were not any bugs so we ate several meals out on the balcony and relaxed all day long out there when we were not on the beach! When we had a problem with the gas grill not working, the owner made sure a new grill was delivered promptly. The house was extremely clean, new and fresh feeling...including the garage! The owner Laurel was great to work with! We will be returning again soon to Sea La Vie - it could not be better!

"So that's how the wealthy live"

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time pretending to live the "highlife". We celebrated our 40th anniversary with our daughters and new granddaughter. We visited all the recommended restaurants in the area, Crabby Bills, the Pub, and Salt Creek and of course Kooky Coconuts. All were very tasty. The property was very clean and tastefully decorated which added to the beach house experience. We were told that we lucked out on the weather for early February. The whole week was clear and in the 70's. Over our week's stay, we chartered a fishing trip with Captain Tom on a perfect day, visited Fort DeSoto and John's Pass, Pier 60 in Clearwater, and took several beach walks morning and evening. All in all, a great Florida vacation. Now we have to figure out how to come back :-)
