Crows Nest - 358 Cassine Garden Circle

It is a wonderful place! We would definitely stay again. I do want to mention that they need a larger pan to cook. I had to use their 3 small frying pans simultaneously to cook a meal for 7 that could easily be cooked with one larger one. Also, their can opener does not work. (This is little stuff but would be a huge help). Everything else in the home was lovely and so well thought out. We enjoyed every minute of their beautiful vacation home!!

Gathering family

by Lilburn GA

5 of 5

The Crow's Nest is one of the few homes in the area that works for a family of all adults. The rooms are spacious and all but one bedroom includes a full bath.We cook a lot and the kitchen works for us. We brought our own crockpot and air fryer, but the supplies are plentiful enough. The round table is great for dinners and games. We felt super comfortable and enjoyed the new year coming in with our loved ones. Also the neighborhood is wonderful, quiet and friendly.

Response from Benchmark Management

Lisa, Thank you for such a glowing review of The Crow's Nest! We are happy to have been able to provide you and your family with a comfortable, spacious location for your trip to the beach. We hope you choose Benchmark Management when booking all your future vacations, we would be glad to have you! Sincerely, Benchmark Management.

Our family had a great time! We love the Cassine Village area! The house was wonderful with plenty of room for several families! It was close to both pools & the beach! And having three grandkids with us, that was very much appreciated! We'll definitely be back again! Thank you!

Quite and screen

by Hendersonville TN

5 of 5

The location was wonderful! Close to shops and restaurants and of course the beach. The community is sweet and kind. The area is super quite and the owners lovely! however the only downfall are the beds. Downstairs Master is as hard as a rock. My husband and I both struggled to sleep and finally the last few nights I thought of tripling the covers of the two downstairs bedspreads and using blankets from the living room as covers. This worked a bit better. However, all in all it was awesome.

Response from Benchmark Management

Tami, Thank you for the feedback on your summer vacation with us. This home is located in beautiful Seagrove -- just 6-minutes to the beach with easy access to the local businesses. We have taken your comments on the beds to send to the owners, however, the comfort of beds is subjective so it is hard to say whether or not change in bedding would be discussed, as the next guest may love a firmer bed! We hope to welcome you back in the future for a 5-star beach vacation! Sincerely, Benchmark Management

Wonderful Stay!!

5 of 5

Our family vacation at The Crow’s Nest was wonderful! The owners had everything we needed for our family of 6 adults and an infant. The neighborhood is lovely and the short walk to the beach is made even easier with a wagon provided by the owners. When searching for a beach home rental, we found many homes with the number of bedrooms and bathrooms we needed. But the open kitchen and living area at The Crow’s Nest made it the perfect choice for us. So many beach homes only have one couch and a couple of uncomfortable looking chairs. We all loved being able to sit together at the table or in the living area with two couches and two recliners! We chose to prepare dinner and eat in several nights during our stay and the outdoor patio with gas grill was perfect for that. There are just so many amenities to love about this house! Everything about it made for such a comfortable family vacation. Definitely recommend!

Crow’s Nest is an excellent, family-friendly choice along Hwy 30A!

5 of 5

The Crow’s Nest is our new favorite! We have been renting vacation homes along Hwy 30A for over 12 years, and the Crow’s Nest is among the best. It is clean and beautifully appointed with updated accessories, linens and furnishings – everything we needed for a restful vacation. The open, spacious kitchen, dining room and great room combination is perfect for gathering with friends and family but there is plenty of privacy as well with two bedrooms on the main floor and two upstairs. All of the bedrooms have extremely comfortable beds. The bedrooms downstairs are over-sized and have plenty of closet space with built-in shelving and drawers. Both have flat-screen TV’s. The master bath features two separate toilet areas, his and her vanities, large shower and garden tub. Both of the bedrooms upstairs also have flat-screen TV’s and large, private baths. There is a beautiful, private deck adjacent to one of the bedrooms which we used for sunbathing and catching up on a few good books. We loved the covered front porch with its comfortable seating and ceiling fans - perfect for relaxing and enjoying the quiet, peaceful neighborhood. The circular drive provided plenty of off-the-street parking and gave us easy access to the house for unloading our luggage and groceries. Seaside is less than 2 miles away, and we enjoyed riding our bikes there for lunch and dinner. The beach access is an easy walk - about five minutes from the house. There are two neighborhood pools, both of which are approximately 100 yards from the house. All in all, Crow’s Nest is an excellent, family-friendly choice along Hwy 30A!

Great Location and Accomodations!

5 of 5

We were able to find the Crow's Nest in the 23rd hour of our vacation lodging search and were very lucky to say the least! The house is nestled nicely into a quiet subdivision in close proximity to an amazing beach. The home was accommodating to our needs and also went above and beyond our expectations. To say we were satisfied and happy is an understatement as we hope we have the option in the future to stay at the Crow's Nest again!

Wonderful Family Vacation House

The home is nicely furnished and the kitchen is well-equipped, and it's a short walk to the beach. The neighborhood is as nice as Seaside or Rosemary Beach, but without all the crowds and noise. We would definitely stay there again.

What a wonderful vacation house! Did not have the feel of a rental- more like we were home. Immaculately clean and very tastefully decorated. Had every amenity you could want. You won't regret staying here as it is walking distance to everything - the pool, the beach and several restaurants. Completely delightful!
