My family and I have been coming to 30A for years now. We typically stay in Seacrest Beach. This by far was our best Seacrest experience. I cannot say enough good about the location. We enjoy everything Seacrest has to offer, and there is no better central location to experience all of it. We also were able to walk to Rosemary and Alys Beach. With the additional of Pizza by the Sea in Seacrest, your cars can stay put all week if you wish.
The house was also great. We were a party of 2 families, 4 adults, and 6 kids. The 3 - 12 year old girls took the third floor and it was perfect for them. We had a little concern about the first floor bedroom being private enough especially in the morning as people wake early or perhaps want to sleep in. It was never an issue. The outside area was great, plenty of seating and large picnic table where we ate most days. The pool is also perfect. The 6 kids were in in whenever we were not at the beach. We thought it looked small in some of the pictures, but all 10 of us were in multiple times, and while you can’t swim laps in its certainly big enough for having fun!
And finally the beach. Not sure how long it took us to walk to the beach, but it’s not worth timing. It takes longer to get sunscreen on than it does to get there. The beach chairs are a great addition too. We in the past pack lunch on beach days and take it to the beach, and we still did that a couple times, but with the house being such a short walk you can easily come back for lunch and take a short break if you desire.
In all the years we have been coming to Seacrest we have not stayed in the same house twice. I would 100% stay in this house again and again.

We've stayed at Barefoot Daze many times over the years, and it's always a wonderful experience. The pool is a good size and warm on those cool spring days. We love the space around the pool and take advantage of the porch in the mornings. The furnishings are casual and comfortable, and we enjoy the dining room table for game nights. It's an easy walk to restaurants and shops in Rosemary and very close to the beach.

Our rental experience was great. The pool and closeness to the beach were the key items. We had our adult married children and their 6 babies ranging from 4 years old down to 10 months.
