MEMORY LANE ~ Your Family Beach Getaway at Magnolia ~ 5 min Walk to Beach
average rating of 4.8 based on 5 reviews

Wonderful Beach House - 1 minute walk to the pool , 4 min. walk to beach, 10 minute drive to grocery

  • 5 of 5

Memory Lane is the perfect house in the perfect SoWal location. The pool is amazing and a 30 second sprint/ 1 minute walk from the front door. The beach is a 4 minute walk and has access to one of the most beautiful beaches in Seacrest/South Walton County. Conveniently located between two Publix grocery stores and all of the best restaurants and retail along 30A in South Walton. Most importantly, the property management team lead by Jane and Jim Allen were fantastic and so helpful. They answered every call/text email within minutes when we had questions about anything & everything. We would definitely stay at Memory Lane again in the future and if this home isn't available - find a home managed by Jane and Jim Allen!

A Beautiful Beach Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Memory Lane! The house was modern, clean, comfy and so beautiful! It was the perfect size for our group of 6 (2 small kids, 2 grandparents and my husband and I.) You could fit more guests if needed but this gave us plenty of our own space. The beds were so comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed for cooking meals and the linens provided were so nice. Our kids loved the community pool right across the street and the beach was gorgeous and just a short walk. We had a few days of rain during our stay but really enjoyed family time in the house watching movies, playing games, puzzles and sipping coffee on the covered porch while listening to the rain. It was the absolute perfect getaway for us! We will definitely come back to Memory Lane!

My favorite Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Memory Lane is an absolute dream!! We LOVED our stay here. The house is Exactly as it is shown. Very clean! The kids enjoyed the games in the bunkroom. The screened in porch is a little bit of heaven. Renting this home from Jim and Jane was wonderful from beginning to end. We cannot wait to come back.. for a little longer next time!!

The perfect peaceful escape!

  • 5 of 5

We chose Magnolia Cottages by the Sea because they are a safe family friendly community that is a short walk to the beach and pool but very affordable. It's also right in between Rosemary and Alys beach and Seaside! It doesn't get much better unless you want to spend your life savings ;-p Memory Lane cottage is very comfortable, soft couches and mattresses. Nice linens and towels!! We didn't need to bring anything with us except clothes! Fully stocked in every room. It's very private even though it's in a community. We rose bikes to Rosemary Beach and it was the perfect distance, even for our 8 year old who rode his own bike. Highly recommend staying here! We looked at others in this neighborhood and I this is the prettiest one :) bright, clean and cheerful!
