Seagrove at its best!

  • 5 of 5

In the Grove was perfect for our family. Loved the proximity to the beach, the backyard pool and the beautiful decor. Sunburst Rental Agency was the best agency we've used by far and this is our fifth summer in the 30A area. Would highly recommend!

The perfect beach rental!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the privilege of staying at In the Grove directly after it was available for rent. The house and amenities were perfect for our long fall weekend, and the house is walking distance from a very private beach, yet a quick bike ride to the more lively Seaside beach for our teenage children. It was the perfect combination!

As vacationers who prefer to cook vs eat out, the kitchen was very well equipped with everything we needed to prepare for our football Saturday!

This house would also be perfect for a family with older parents joining your vacation as it has a first floor bedroom that is remote and quiet from the rest of the house.

We've re-booked and can't wait to spend another long weekend at In the Grove this October!

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the charming and precious house in Seagrove. The location and area are perfect. We rented bikes and rode all over the neighborhoods, as well as an easy walk to the beach. We had three young children that were easily able to walk to the beach from the house as well as enjoy the pool. The decor in the house is perfect. It was so picturesque! The house was also very clean and easy to stay at! We will definitely be staying here again!

We loved staying at "In the Grove" during Spring Break, it was just far enough away from Seaside Proper to be outside of the spring break hoopla and just a short bike ride when we wanted the excitement. The home is well furnished with everything you need to feel like your at home! We loved the shady front porch and the sunny & private back! We also loved that the beach access was just a short little walk! And our rental bikes were delivered & waiting when we arrived! Loved everything thing about this place! Simply wonderful stay!

The Ritz of the Area

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been vacationing in the Seaside/Seagrove area since 2006 and have rented close to 20 places. Hands down, In The Grove was the cleanest, best maintained, and thoughtfully decorated home we've rented. From the moment we walked in, I was impressed with the quality of the furniture and decor. I enjoyed seeing the land plots and photos of the owner's family through the years (not meant as "family photos," but accounts of history as the area was developing, I assume). The kitchen is incredible and better stocked than any I've seen. The pool is small, but sufficient, and has a pool alarm on the back door-- a bonus if you're visiting with kids. The house is one block back from the beach, so the water is an easy walk away, but the street isn't as loud as 30-A. Seaside is a 3 minute bike ride away. The beds are AMAZING. I have a Tempur-pedic mattress at home, but now I want whatever they have--it's memory foam but is firm with great support...which comes in handy when you've been biking, walking around the area, and playing with your toddler all day. Speaking of having a toddler, I don't have the time it would take to fully give this home the credit it deserves...but trust me when I say it is the Ritz of the area. Thank you for a great weekend!

P.S. Where'd you get those mattresses? I desperately want one! :-)
