Details

Experience the charm and nature of Old Seagrove in this spacious 4-bedroom, 3-bath home that overlooks a beautiful tree-lined canal. Canal of a Good Time is a 2-story beach retreat located on a quiet dead end street offering the ultimate in privacy. A 10-minute stroll will take you into Seaside, where you can enjoy award-winning restaurants, unique shops, and the ambiance of a quaint coastal village.

Wide plank heart of pine floors from an Alabama cotton warehouse grace the entire home and give it a warm, vintage charm. Soaring ceilings and multiple windows over the spacious living room give the room light and airiness. 3 bedrooms are on the main floor with the master suite encompassing the full 2nd floor.

The living room is perfect for movie nights or to relax with a good book (there's a library wall full of choices!). There's a larger TV mounted above the fireplace. Warm up in front of the wood-burning fireplace if you’re coming in Florida’s “cooler” months. Next to the fireplace is the perfect setup for game night – a card table and seating for 4. The kitchen opens out to the living room with a long bar that has 3 barstools.

The fully equipped kitchen has plenty of space to make meal preparation a breeze. The dining room has a large table that has 6 chairs – more chairs can easily fit from the card table to seat 8. Right outside the kitchen you’ll find the gas grill for all your BBQ cravings.

French doors off the living room open to the screened-in porch which overlooks the canal. Enjoy plenty of seating for dining and relaxation. Take a minute to unwind on the front porch on the porch swing – cool and relaxing.

Laundry room comes off the kitchen and has a front-loading washer and dryer, laundry sink, and folding countertop. Off the laundry room you’ll find the private bunk room with bathroom – great for teens.

Sleeping Arrangements:
1st Floor, Bedroom 1: Queen with TV and access to the hall bath with tub/shower combination.
1st Floor, Bedroom 2: 2 twin beds; shares hall bathroom with Bedroom 1
1st Floor, Bedroom 3: Twin-over-twin bunk room with attached full bathroom.
2nd Floor, Bedroom 4: Queen master suite with huge closet (could easily fit a Pack ‘n Play or even 2) and access to a private screened-in balcony. Private bathroom includes a beautiful walk-in 2-person shower.

The beach is about a 10-minute walk down lovely oak canopied dirt roads of Old Seagrove. Seaside is just around the corner. Or you can paddle your troubles away to Western Lake in a canoe or kayak – if you’re lucky, nature will provide you with an opening into the Gulf of Mexico! Close enough to walk or bike to everything…beach, galleries, fine cuisine, bike trails, markets, boutiques, and coffee shops!

We had a great time at this property. The house was very clean when we arrived. The house was comfortable & cozy. The screened deck area was very relaxing and private.
The kitchen had everything I needed.
The grill was nice to have. The property is convenient to get to places.
It’s in a private area on a big lot with Plenty of parking which is nice.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Good location, nothing too fancy

by Hoover AL

5 of 5

The house had a good location and accommodated the group I had. Downstairs rooms are very small especially bunk room. Upstairs room good size but it gets hot even when lower area of house was cool. It would have been nice to have a few extra towels so that we didn’t have to do laundry every day. House is very private if you are looking for that. Recommend getting a golf cart to get to beach, Seaside etc. Overall house is a good value for the area. It satisfied our needs.

Response from Benchmark Management

Gena, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are happy to hear that this unit and the location of this unit worked out well for you and your family. It was a pleasure to host you and we look forward to hosting you again soon. Guest Relations.

Canal of a Good Time

by Roland AR

5 of 5

The rental itself was very nice, well stocked. Loved the porches and open kitchen which was conducive to visiting. Would recommend adding additional light along walking paths and driveway at night which can be a bit tricky to navigate at night. As it near many beach accesses it is very difficult to find parking to accommodate your golf cart.

We had a Canal of a good time.

by Flowood MS

5 of 5

We had to book it last minute and was spacious and very well put together. We loved hanging in the back screened in porch area. Wish the master suite was upstairs. Wish they would have had a golf cart available because it was about a 12 minute walk to the beach and downtown area. Had a great time!

Nice rental

by Martinez Ga

5 of 5

Decided to visit the gulf with the whole family including children and grandchildren. Place was accommodating for our group and clean. Was within walking distance except the neighborhood roads are in terrible condition, so pulling a cart with little ones was not possible. We drove to public beach access. Washer wasn’t working properly, so we reported it. Hopefully it was fixed before next guest. Checkin and checkout was super easy! The town square has great food and shops!

Response from Benchmark Management

Stephanie, Thank you for choosing to stay with us this year at Canal of a Good Time and for sharing your feedback. We are happy to report that the washer is working fine now. Thanks to your correspondence, our maintenance team was able to get that running once we got to take a look at it. This home is in great proximity to Seaside, Seagrove, and Watercolor. Take your pick for shopping and dining that the whole family can enjoy! We hope to welcome you all back next year for an even better beach vacation. Sincerely, Benchmark Management

Nice house

by Germantown TN

4 of 5

We liked the location of the house. It was a short (10 min) walk to the beach. The house overall was in good condition. The screened in porch was nice. We did feel that some things were missed by the cleaning team - there was popcorn from a previous guest under the couch and the couch cushions had stains on them. We would have appreciated more dishes - we had 8 people with us and there were only 5-6 bowls. Ask as another guest had mentioned, the WiFi was not very good. All in all we enjoyed our stay and would stay again.

Response from Benchmark Management

Allison, Thank for sharing your experience at Canal Of A Good Time. We were happy to have served you and that you enjoyed your overall stay with us. The internet in the area can be spotty at times due to the limited amount of serve providers we have. Our apologies that we let you down in the cleaning department, usually we are very responsive in correcting these issues once made aware. We can't wait to see you again and make it a complete 5-star experience for you. Sincerely, Benchmark Management

Nice Stay

by Greenville SC

5 of 5

House is very clean and nicely furnished with the exception of the living room couch which is a sectional and is missing a rather large piece. We are a family of 6, so having the entire couch would have been appreciated. The WiFi is really, really bad. I have 4 kids who homeschool year round. It was impossible to complete any of their online school during our seven day stay. WiFi also has weak security, so be aware. House is walking distance to Seaside, WaterColor, and the beach. Super convenient.

Response from Benchmark Management

We're glad that you enjoyed your stay at Canal Of A Good Time and that its location worked well for you. Please come again! Benchmark Management

Lovely home in a great location about a 5-10 minute walk to Seaside! The kitchen had everything we needed to make meals, coffee every morning, etc. We will be back again, we wish we didn't have to go home!
