"Just A Short Walk" - Best of Both - Beach and Lake Access!!!

"Just A Short Walk ” is a truly exceptional vacation rental property that sits among two of Florida’s greatest treasures, Seagrove Beach and  Eastern Lake.

The pristine sugar-white beaches and emerald waters of Seagrove Beach are a short five-minute walk away. Enjoy a walk on the beach, collect shells, sunbathe, or go surf fishing or just Chill!  

Eastern Lake is a coastal dune lake. The lake is mostly fresh water that mixes with saltwater from the gulf creating an incredible ecosystem of both fresh water and saltwater species. Dune lakes are a rare, natural phenomena that only exist in New Zealand, Australia, Madagascar and South Walton, Florida. “Just A Short Walk” is directly across the street from Eastern Lake. Enjoy stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, canoeing or fishing on this beautiful coastal dune lake.

This luxurious vacation home is located South of 30A close to shopping, dining, and entertainment. Walk to Old Florida Fish House for drinks or dinner. Take the kids to a backyard party at The Big Chill with a wide variety of food and entertainment. You have easy access to all the restaurants, bars and shopping that 30A has to offer. If you prefer to stay home, Buddy’s Seafood Market and Steam Bar down the street has steamed shrimp and a fantastic assortment of fresh gulf seafood to-go. You will find a new Weber charcoal grill on the back patio. 

This gorgeous home was new to the rental program in 2022 and was completely renovated in November, 2021 with fresh paint, new appliances, lighting, and furnishings (including new mattresses in all bedrooms). 

From the moment that you enter this beautiful home, you will feel welcomed by all that it has to offer—an open floor plan, tasteful decorations, and plenty of comfortable seating. The kitchen is fully appointed with new appliances. The laundry center has a new washer and dryer and is conveniently located off the kitchen. The first-floor master bedroom has a comfortable king bed, and a full bath with a huge walk-in shower. Upstairs, you will find one spacious king and one double queen bedrooms and a bunk room that is just the spot for the kids to relax after a fun day of playing in the waves. These three bedrooms share a large bath that has a jetted tub/shower combination.

“Just A Short Walk” is centrally located between Seaside and Rosemary Beach, giving you lots of choices for places to play when you are ready to venture out. The popular 30A area is teeming with amenities and offers something for everyone.

Gorgeous Home close to everything    Aug 01, 2023

review star

Had the pleasure of staying here last week. What a gorgeous home in a great location, close to beach, restaurants, lake and more. 
Kids loved having the bikes to ride every day, the older kids kayaked thru the lake and got out into the gulf area. 
House was super clean, well equipped, and super comfy beds. The pool in the back was a nice added bonus. 
We highly recommend this house for anyone with kids and wanting to be close to everything. 
We biked to the HUB in Prominenance too where there are tons of great restaurants and outdoor open air cafes and live musice nightly.
Jill the manager was great to work with too. 
Cant wait to return here next year.

Perfect Stay    Jun 24, 2023

review star

This house was the perfect set up for our family of 6. Everyone has their own bed and space. It had all the amenities we needed! The bicycles, kayaks and beach chairs were an added bonus and all in great condition This house is the perfect location to beach access and many restaurants that are a short and easy bike ride away! We loved the are and would def stay here again.

Dave & Jill Burke's reply:

Thank You for the kind words. Yes, this is one of the best kept secrets along 30A. Less crowds, but close to the beach and this pool that is in the backyard is magnificent and so convenient with kids.



Perfect Home    Jun 17, 2023

We returned from "A Short Walk to the Beach" lovely home a week ago and still depressed that we had to leave. We have a family of 9 that included a 2-year-old and a 4-month-old. We all fit in the house perfectly. The house was very clean and well stocked and in an excellent location close to food options and the beach! It is a must to take the kayaks out on Eastern Lake. No need to bring beach supplies because the supplies were perfect. Don't pass this one by. This was our first time to Seagrove and will be back.



Just Perfect!    May 28, 2023

We just returned from our first stay at this lovely home and I can't say enough good things! The house was very clean and well stocked and in an excellent location close to food options and the beach! We really enjoyed having the kayaks and all the beach supplies that came with the house also - all were clean, stored nicely and in excellent condition. The owners were very kind and responsive to our inquiries before the trip as well! We already want to go back!

Super Nice Home in perfect location    May 27, 2023

review star

We had the pleasure of renting this home for our family vacation last month. House was very very nice, super clean on arrival day. 
The Kids loved the huge pool out back, that we had our own gate too which was kind of cool. Some of the older adults did the kayaks through Eastern Lake one early morning. "Quite breathtaaking " is what they said. You can paddle out almost to the gulf, get out and walk around on the dunes was very fun. Beach was a short walk, not crowded either. We walked to some great restaurants, and we biked into Seaside a few times too. 
Happy hour at Bud n Allys is a must. Drinks and apps at the HUB was super fun too. Highly recommend this house for a fun family vacation. 
Manager was great to work with too, always accessible.

Loved This House    Dec 10, 2022

review star

Stayed here for our family annual reunion we do in Seagrove every year. This was a fabulous house, very clean, and we loved the pool being right there in the back yard. We walked to the beach while the kids took there bikes. Restaurants were close and easy walking, morning walks to Beachy Bean for coffee and bagels was wonderful. We already booked our return for next year. The Burkes were easy to work with and well informed about the area. 

Highly recommend ! 



Great Location    Nov 19, 2022

We loved this house, rented bikes and biked everywhere. Walked over to Old Florida Fish House for dinner several nights. 
Beach was a short walk and a easy bike ride. Kiddos loved paddle boarding in the lake which has access just across the street. 

House was very clean, beds were super comfy, will definately return as we LOVE Seagrove Beach

better then we expected    Nov 12, 2022

review star

We usually stay in Destin, so we werent sure about this part of 30A. Well, we loved this little house and it backs up to a very nice pool that was not crowded. We walked to the beach, grad kids took there bikes, the house was clean, and equipped well too. Some nice restaurants within walking distance, the girls walked to coffee shop and had breakfast every morning. One day we all biked to Seaside which was a nice 3 mile bike ride and we had lunch there. Overall, a great house and we will return for sure.
