Grove By The Sea:
As its name implies, The Grove by the Sea neighborhood is a peaceful, tree-lined community located directly across from the beautiful emerald beaches of South Walton. Beach access is an easy walk from the home, and there are 2 private neighborhood pools, plus a tennis court. Its proximity to nearby beach villages Seaside, Watercolor, Grayton Watersound, Alys and Rosemary make it an ideal location for all that 30A has to offer.

30A is a scenic stretch of highway down Florida’s beautiful Gulf Coast between Destin and Panama City Beach. The highway connects the coastal villages of South Walton through the undisturbed beauty of rare dune lakes, sugar white sand, and emerald waters indigenous to the area. Each village has its own unique characteristics that paint a fairytale-like scene against some of the country’s most beautiful beaches.

Lined with artsy villages, coastal lakes, upscale resorts, eclectic beach bars, world-class restaurants and 25,000 acres of protected habitats, Florida's Scenic Highway 30A has something for everyone and is home to the world's most beautiful white sand beaches. Come see for yourself and we promise you will never want to leave.

Perfect location and size for Family of 5 with little kids

by Kirkwood Mo

5 of 5

We’ve stayed in this neighborhood before and loved the quaint houses. This house is so close to the community Pool that you don’t need a house with a Pool at all. Also 7-10 minute walk to the beach. Our 3 young kids loved the bunk beds, and we loved the setup. Will stay here again!

Exquisite, As Always

Our stay in 30A was exquisite, as always. We have stayed in this home three times, and it's always a winner. The house is beautiful, clean, well stocked, and just a short walk to the gorgeous beach. The management company was super informative, giving us all the information we needed. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants a relaxing stay in 30A!

Great visit

by Raymond G.

5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay - the place was a great location to the beach and Seaside. Only reco’s for the management group is to take off the reference of the availability of the bikes and upgrade the Wi-Fi. We had numerous outings and the signal was quite weak. If the only option for the TVs is streaming, need to upgrade the Wi-Fi. Overall, still a great place to stay!

Response from Benchmark Management

Raymond, Thank so much for providing feedback! Located in the quiet neighborhood, Grove by the Sea, this lovely home has everything you could possibly desire. You are just a short bike ride to the famous Seaside and while bikes are not included with the home, we do offer a credit with Vacayzen. With this daily credit, you can rent bikes, beach chairs and much more! Unfortunately, Wi-fi is provided by an outside vendor and we cannot guarantee a strong signal. We hope to welcome you back soon for another beach vacation! Sincerely, Benchmark Management
