About Shannon Williams

We fell in love with Seacrest Beach back in 2010 while on vacation and decided we would love the area for a vacation home. The Beaches of South Walton are the perfect place for a relaxing vacation with family and friends. We are a family of four with two young daughters.

Shannon Williams purchased this house in 2015

Why Shannon Williams chose South Walton

Our property is well appointed and professionally decorated. It includes all the amenities of home.

What makes this house unique

We love beach vacations! We can walk or take the tram and be at one of the world's most beautiful beaches in minutes. Biking around the neighborhood in the evening is one of our favorites! We also enjoy a 'friendly' game of bocce ball with our family. Watching the annual fireworks at 4th of july is something to behold. Rosemary and alys beach put on a spectacular display and seacrest is situated right in the middle.

Made our first visit all that much nicer!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first-ever trip to the South Walton Beach area and we were really looking forward to it. After looking at several homes we settled on the Snappy Crab for our spring break. We found the home to be very clean and a perfect fit for our family of 5 (3 teenagers). The Snappy Crab was very clean and well furnished. There were plenty of towels and kitchen utensils. The kitchen was well appointed and had everything you would need with upgraded appliances at your disposal. The floor plan was great with easy access from the front or backdoor at street/sidewalk level. (Some homes in the area require you going up a flight of steps to the entry.) When we weren't at the beach or the local shops, we were very comfortable hanging out in the 'Crab. We loved the easy access to the shops and restaurants in the area. If this is your first time, you will find a ton of stuff a short walk or bike ride away, or use the free community tram service that was mostly timely and efficient to take you to the beach, shops, and restaurants. We rented bikes and rode to the beach everyday as well as the shops at Rosemary and Aly's Beach. Incredible restaurants in the area - you don't have to go far for anything. The area is wonderfully un-commercial (no fast food or chain places in the area which makes it even nicer. Except no Starbucks - my wife had to do without for a few days...) We always felt safe and we had no reservations with having our kids go to the shops or beach on their bikes. As for the Snappy Crab, you will find it to meet all of your needs quite well. My only suggestions would be to make the AC easier to work. We never got it to come on and the house got a bit warm/stuffy. And I would recommend they add a wifi booster on the main level as the signal got kind of weak since the only hotspot was on top/third level. It worked, but it got kind of slow for us given how they set it up. Overall we had a fantastic time and fell in love with the area! We are eager to come back and we would definitely stay here again.

Very clean and well kept.

  • 4 of 5

The property is in a great location. We loved the set-up of the condo-very convenient in terms of bedrooms and living areas. The kitchen is beautiful-all the decor is nice. The water could be warmer in the showers and its hard to turn on the way the faucets are located within the shower-so you have to turn it on and get out of the way quick until it warms. That would be the only negative thing I could say.

Pristine property, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five stayed at the Snappy Crab and loved it! The house is very new and clean and as someone else said, the owners thought of all the little details to make your stay comfortable. The house is located in a charming community with lots of wide roads to ride bikes and play and has quick access to Rosemary and Alys beach and many great restaurants. The pool is great and big enough for the community. The house is also in walking distance to the beach, very short walk but there is tram service if you need it. We will definitely be coming back!!

Beautiful vacation spot!

  • 4 of 5

Lovely home, well decorated and fully equipped with tons of extras (games, movies, beach service, travel shampoo, etc.). Would give a 5 star rating but had a few issues with the AC going out, which the owner and caretaker were very prompt at having fixed. This house is steps from the pool and has great parking space. Although the home is only 2 bedrooms, there is room for many more! We had a very enjoyable time.

My family & I have been vacationing in Seacrest for the last 7 or so years and we come at least 2-3 times a year. We have stayed at several different houses there and I can honestly say that The Snappy Crab has been my absolute FAVORITE house out of all of them!!!!! LOVED LOVED LOVED everything about it from the furnishings to the paint color on the wall!!!! I even loved the way the house smelled from all the candles sitting around! The owner & her Mom are the sweetest people EVER!!!!! The beach chairs & umbrella included are WONDERFUL and a great PLUS! The owner also leaves a special "treat" upon arrival!!!! We will DEFINITELY stay here again!!!!!
