“Life Shines” on 30A by Brian Kennedy

“This is the Place” [South Walton] by Susanna Hoffs


My family has stayed on 30A for several years, this is by far our favorite house. The house was very clean and beautifully decorated, it is located on a very quiet street. We timed how long from door to beach (carrying chairs and a cooler)...4 minutes. These homeowners wanted to make our stay enjoyable, they provided bikes, carts, nice beach chairs and umbrellas and this pet owner appreciates a pet friendly house. The upper tower was a quiet and cool place to go when you wanted peace, the second floor deck was large and well furnished and we all enjoyed the front porch with all the chairs and swing. I could not have asked for a nicer place to stay....we will be back - Alisa Brown The house was clean and beautifully decorated. We rode our bikes every day, hiked in the state park and visited some pretty good restaurants. We are looking forward to coming back this April with our kids. - Mark Mosher Toes in the Sand is a spacious home with several rocking chair porches and a lookout deck, large bedrooms, all the beach accessories you need as well as bikes. Just like home but more fun and peaceful. The best sleep we have had is ages....will be a returning customer very soon! Friendly, clean and relaxing town. Fun shopping, eating and best of all the beaches are so beautiful, clean and crystal clear! - Suzanne Miller Our family had a wonderful time here. The little street was so cute and guarded by a security gate--I felt safe with the kids outside. The neighbors were quiet and also very nice. The house was amazing! Close enough to the beach, but still a great price. It offered SOOO much for such a great price! We are planning on going back every year to this house with our family!! - Jonnice Grentz We spent our Spring break at Toes in the Sand with our family of 2 adults and 5 children. It was a perfect location! The beach is a short walk and we felt comfortable letting the kids walk by themselves. I am so glad we chose a house that did not require crossing 30a. The street being blocked off on one end allowed for the children to play in the street with lax sticks, balls, etc. while we sat on the porch. You can easily see the porch while you are in the kitchen as well. There is lots of seating on the porch which makes it a perfect place to hang out. The rooftop seating and hammock is an added bonus. A nice cozy space with a view of the area. The house was furnished with everything we needed. Plenty of extra in the closets. The furniture is well cared for and in good condition. The master bed was very comfortable. We did not have that adjustment period that comes with sleeping in a vacation bed. The kitchen is extremely well stocked. I cooked many times and was happy for not just one spatula or mixing spoon but many. The bikes were nice to have on site. There is not a child's bike but the rental place is very close. We all were very impressed with the decor, cleanliness and amenities of Toes in the Sand. Our friends who have vacationed for years in the area, commented numerous times on how nice the house was, especially with the location. I can't recommend this house enough for families with elementary age children. Our children were ages 14-5. The street is perfect and it is the nicest porch on the street by far! In addition, the owners were a breeze to work with and very responsive to all my questions. Very gracious and hospitable. - Allyson Porshinsky Our vacation at Toes in the Sand was outstanding. The home was nicely furnished, clean and had lots of amenities to enjoy. The neighborhood was quiet and was a short walk (maybe 3 to 4 minutes) from the beach. Good location between Seaside and Rosemary Beach with plenty of restaurants to enjoy. We will be back! - William Fowlkes This is the second time in two years we have stayed at Toes in the Sand. We've vacationed in Seagrove many times and this is~ hands down ~our fave home. The rooms are spacious and decks on all levels! The dining room comfortably seats 8+ and is open to a huge living area. The floor plan flows well, beautifully furnished, serene color palette. Equipped with all the beach chairs, boogie boards, cart...even bicycles. Great vacation home! - Nancy Markham We had a terrific time staying at Toes in the Sand. The location is perfect, a short walk or ride into Seaside but nice and quiet after a day at the beach. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and provided all that our family of five needed. I would recommend Toes in the Sand! - Dabney Hopkirk We just spent Spring Break in Toes in the Sand, and it was gorgeous! We loved the house, the neighborhood, and the heated pool. The owners provide beach chairs, bikes, and carts for carrying things to the beach, and this was so helpful. The house was so nicely furnished, and we will definitely be back! We walked to restaurants, rode bikes, and loved the lake area that opens into the ocean just down the beach. The water was beautiful; the neighbors were so nice. The kids played in the street with no worries, while we sat on the porch, and the ice cream truck came by every day for afternoon treats! Such a wonderful place! - Shannon Lambert My family and I spent a fantastic week at Toes in the Sand on our annual summer vacation. The house was perfect for our two adult children, their spouses and our 4 grandchildren. We loved the charming family oriented neighborhood. The house was equipped with everything we needed including bikes and beach equipment. The beautiful, white sand beach was a short walk from the house as were the two swimming pools. Our grandchildren ages 6-10 had a blast playing in the ocean and swimming in the pools. We would definitely recommend this rental to others seeking an authentic beach experience and hope to return with our family in the future. Thanks to Kevin and and Stacy for sharing their charming home with our family! - Mary Fagiolo First time staying in a home vs. condo and we really enjoyed our stay. The home was decorated beautifully and was very quite and comfortable for our family of six. We highly recommend Seagrove and Toes in the Sand. Very laid back without the hustle and bustle you experience at some of the busier resorts and beaches. - Lisa Wicks We loved everything about this home. It's clean and super comfortable. You can tell it's someone's second home with great amenities versus "just a rental". The walk to the beach is about 2 blocks and only 9 steps down to the sand. Two pools available for use. Very comfy bed in the master and the downstairs living space with sectional is wonderful. Pet friendly too. Enjoyed sitting on the porches to read or enjoy coffee or a glass of wine. Nice street and within walking distance to some good restaurants. Owner was very easy to work with which was a real plus. Highly recommend and we can't wait to go back!! - Rosemary Rutland
