Formerly "Ain't Life Grand", "Still Waters Cottage" is located in the exclusive, gated, Gulf-front community of Sunset Beach on the south side of 30A. The location of this quaint two-story home is ideal. It is one of only four villas in this community closest to the beach and the large heated pool. This wonderful retreat is tucked away in the southern most corner of the Seacrest neighborhood making it private and quiet while at the same time providing guests with easy beach access and great views of the gulf. The private deeded beach access is just 50 yards away, and the pool is even closer.

We had a great time while staying at the Ain't Life Grand Villa. The only complaint I have is that we didn't stay long enough ! The villa was just a short walk down to the beach and the complimentary beach chair rental made beach time even better. The house was very clean, the furniture very comfortable and the kitchen better stocked than I had expected. Seems like they didn't forget a thing !! We're already looking forward to booking our trip for next year.
Thank you for your wonderful review and all "five" rating. Ain't Life Grand also comes with two adult bikes to enjoy the 19 mile bike trail along Highway 30-A and nearby shopping and restaurants in Rosemary Beach. We look forward to booking you again along Highway 30-A.
Our stay at Ain't Life Grand was great. we checked in late and had no problems with directions to the office or the house. The house was very clean , comfortable, and spacious. it was a very short walk to the pool and beach. my only complaint was that we booked the chairs online with the link attached to the site and received a confirmation # but when we got down to the beach their were no chairs set up for us. they do not put them out until you show up, therefore we ended up on the 3rd row on the first day. Other than that we recommend this house 100 %
Thank you for your review and all "five" rating. On a busy holiday, we will be sure and let our guests know that you need to show up early to get the front row on beach chairs. Ain't Life Grand is the perfect beach house in the perfect location to everything in Seacrest and Rosemary Beach. We look forward to seeing you again along Highway 30-A.
Overall, we were very pleased with our stay at Aint Life Grand. We have used many vacation rental companies, and Royal Vacation Rentals was by the far the most organized and customer friendly company we have ever worked with. The cottage was so close to both the pool and beach, which made trips back and forth so convenient. We thought that the pool was supposed to be for just four houses, but it turned out to be available for the entire complex. This being said, it was not very busy and there was plenty of room. The balcony off the master bedroom had a great view of the ocean and was very nice to use. Proximity was perfect for Alys Beach, Seacrest Beach and Rosemary Beach, all within walking or biking distance. With tons of activities at all three locations, our family had a great time. Our cottage came with two chairs that were setup at the beach, which was a great bonus! Our only complaint was that the cottage did not seem to be cleaned thoroughly. The floors seemed a bit dirty, so we vacuumed them ourselves. All in all, we were happy with our stay and the cottage and will definitely consider returning in future years!
Thank you for your feedback and comments. Ain't Life Grand is close to everything in Seacrest and Rosemary Beach. You can call our office at any time for questions and concerns you might have during your stay. We look forward to seeing you again along Highway 30-A.
