Loved the atmosphere of Seacrest!

The house was just the perfect size for us! We are a family of 4! The tram stop being directly in front of the home was great! The pool is very close as well! We loved riding the bikes we rented! The beaches were absolutely beautiful!

Beautiful area!

Beautiful location and community. Home is lovely. In need of new upstairs carpet. We would have liked cabinet storage for food items but other than that a wonderful cozy place. Closer to the pool and beach than I thought and the shuttle service is private for the community and just a call away which is a plus! The 3 bathrooms are beautiful and an bonus since we only had 4 people. Also, it's a corner location with ample parking and landscaping. Wish the pool was heated for the early spring but was beautiful to sit by! Have already recommended the property.
