Guestbook comments from the manager

This home is by far the best place we ever stayed. The location and accommodations are perfect - your family history told in pictures and art works are a treasure. We did not mind the cloudy and misty weather with so much to admire inside. Thank you for the rich history of this place and people who are part of this home.

Fantastic! What a view ! Fully stocked, and wonderful for large families!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location, and cozy, comfortable home. The owner is wonderful, welcoming, and a breath of fresh air. She has thought of every detail, and we fully enjoyed the treasure trove of books, artwork and family pictures that tell a story with so much character throughout the home. The porch is wonderfully large with fantastic swingbeds being one of our favorite spots to sit, read or watch our older kids play in the sand. With just a short walk or quick bike ride to the shops, restaurants and children's park at Seaside, there is lots to see and do, but with the ability to have this place as a retreat to relax steps away. It's a place you could come, stay and never feel like you have to do anything else. We enjoyed it so much, and took full advantage of the fully stocked kitchen cooking most of our meals right at home - several times picking up some shrimp or seafood to add to our dinners at Goatfeather's down the road. 6 beautiful, great size bedrooms, each with their own full bathroom with plenty of room to spread out and find a quiet spot. The outdoor showers attached to the bedrooms came in handy to help wash off the kids and keep the sand out, and our 90 year old grandmother loved taking in the views and fully appreciated the one floor living with the ability to still see what was going on the beach down below. Thank you again for sharing your upstairs view, and gorgeous artwork! We look forward to the opportunity to come back with our 7 children next year, create more memories and again enjoy the sunshine, sea and salty air! Jusqu'à la prochaine fois! Bon Voyage Didon!

Great home in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

Positive: this is a great house for a good size group (we had 16). The deck is awesome, my favorite part of the house!! The rooms were all great and comfortable. Being so close to Seaside was great.

Negative: the construction right next door was really annoying. They would start at 6am (or before) and were so very loud.

Owner's Response: Hi Sarah, We do apologize that the construction next door annoyed you. It is almost finished and the work is mostly on the inside at this time. We hope you return again in the future. Warmest Regards, The East of the Sun Family

Best vacation house we have ever rented!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Florida vacation homes many times, renting multiple homes at the same time for large family gatherings, including Rosemary Beach, Seaside and Grayson Beach. This was by far the best experience with such easy beach access and the extra large deck and swings. The 6 bedrooms on a single level makes it great for large families with kids, and the 6th with the double bunk beds was great for the teenagers who all wanted to stay together!

The Jewel of 30 A

  • 5 of 5

Spring Break 2017- what a wonderful trip! 3 families, total of 16, (including 9 teenage boys) so much room, artistic decor - all the comforts of home- breathtaking view and direct access to the beach off the spacious porch. Perfect set up! The owner is so welcoming, sharing her history and love of the house, her art and hand-made arabella jewelry. She made our trip so special! The house is spotless, huge kitchen and bar. The long hallway down the center of the house draws you to the sea view and amazing outdoor space. The bed swings are whimsical and beachy, so fun and relaxing. Instantly melts your cares away. The view is beyond incredible. We"ll be back again and again! Thanks Didon for sharing your charming beachside get- away. We miss it already- it was so hard to leave. Priceless memories! Best location, walking distance to everything! Kristin M. Texas

Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Our family loves this house! It is perfect for our gathering in every way ~ spacious, beautifully maintained and well stocked with everything you could possibly need. From the inside to the wonderful deck with bed swing and beautiful view, we love it more every year! So nice to walk just a few blocks to the activities in Seaside or bike all around the area. So blessed to have found this house for our family vacation ~ grandchildren call it "our" beach house:) Making wonderful memories with them all every year. It really is the Perfect Beach House!
