Overview

Property Details

Updated: Mar 27, 2015
Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Thanks for visiting. Our property was just renovated in the Fall of 2013. That included a new Beauty Rest Pillow Top mattress in the master, all new stainless appliances, new paint, furniture and décor in several rooms etc. (See pictures!)

INSPIRED BY NATURE DETAILS:

1st Floor

Living Room:

Sofa and loveseat, TV/VCR, movie library, Stereo/Cassette/CD Player, adjoining secluded porch with table and chairs.

Dining Room:

Dining table with seating for six. Seating for two more at the bar. Utility room with full-size washer and dryer.

Kitchen:

Fully-equipped with new stainless appliances. Half bath off kitchen area.

2nd Floor

Master Bedroom:

Queen-size Beauty Rest Pillow Top bed, carpet, ceiling fan, TV, adjoining balcony with furniture and full private bathroom.

Guest Bedroom:

Full-size bed and double futon bunk bed (two on bottom, one on top), TV/DVD, carpet, ceiling fan, adjoining balcony with chairs and table, full bathroom just outside in hall.

Other:

Only 250 yards from beach. 150 yards tone of two pools, two tennis courts, nature, bike, and fitness trails, a basketball hoop, and a secluded lake with picnic area. We also supply complimentary beach equipment, adult bikes, and a reading/video library.

If condos were restaurants, Inspired by Nature at Cassine Gardens would be that quaint favorite place you would only tell best friends about because you wouldn’t want crowds to follow.

Two bedrooms and two full baths upstairs and everything else downstairs; all the basics are covered including several TVs, DVD/VCR/CD player, a sound system, washer and dryer, etc. That’s nice, but you also have the niceties of: adult bicycles, beach chairs, a video and reading library, and fun mosaic art everywhere.

Enter the front door under a magnificent magnolia. You can walk through to the back porch or climb stairs to either of the second story balconies if you’re ready to sit and enjoy the nature sanctuary. You can almost touch the trees within the cypress grove as they whisper more quietly than pines.

Ferns and grapevine almost hide the tiny footbridge, which is part of the nature and fitness trails winding through the established community. Less than a block behind #128 is one of two community pools, and tennis courts.

Nearby, hidden within the cypress groves, is a beautiful stocked lake and several secluded picnic areas. If you’re more the beach type, head out the front door. A nearby narrow path takes you directly across the road to the bright sands and shimmering waters of the Gulf.

The kitchen has clean fresh surfaces and is fully-equipped. The living area and bedrooms are comfy and colorful with tasteful artistic décor throughout. The furniture is funky and casual chic including whitewashed cabinets and tables, overstuffed chairs, sofas, and comforters. Big blue rugs warm up the tile floors.

At Cassine Gardens #128 it’s hard to know if it’s the unique area, quick access to the Gulf, the numerous outdoor activities, or the most unusual creative mix of décor within. You may not be able to put your finger on the answer, but anybody with a speck of fun in them will enjoy trying when they stay at Inspired by Nature in Cassine Gardens.

We also own a home in Cassine that can be rented with our townhome. The VRBO ad number is 223454. Please ask for details. Discounts may apply.

About the Owner

Thank you for visiting our website.

My wife Anne and our son, Quinton, purchased Inspired by Nature in 1997. My wife and I live in South Bend, IN. Our son lives in Charlotte, NC. We have come to love Seagrove Beach and Cassine Gardens so much that we purchased a second property, a beach home in Cassine in 2005. If you are part of a large group, and need two properties, or our townhome is rented please check out our beach home on VRBO. Our home is property number 223454.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed the stay, the location, the amenities the value of your condominium . You were right about the fireworks. The most I've ever seen from one place. It seemed you could watch displays from Destin to Panama City from the top of the stairs at the beach access.



Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us.

2015 Spring Break

  • of 5
We had a great time at INSPIRED BY NATURE condo in Seagrove. The owner and his family are very helpful and they are concerned everything works best for you while you are there. The condo is very nice, close to the beach and maybe 10 minutes on bike to Seaside. There is a trail around the subdivision, pool and tennis court. We will recommend the condo to everyone for its good location, quality and neatness. The beds are very comfortable and the property is very clean.

We had a very pleasant stay in this unit and found its owners both courteous and helpful. The kitchen is well-equipped, the furnishings comfortable and plenty of room. We were particularly pleased with the natural setting of the unit, with a nature walk just out the back door.

Peaceful, great location

  • 5 of 5
This condo is perfect for anyone looking for a tranquil setting that's within walking distance to the beach. There are 3 different decks to choose from to sit and relax. Our favorite was the upper deck on the backside of the condo. It felt like no one was within miles, it was so relaxing and quiet. It was just the two of us, but there is plenty of room for a family here. Open concept lets you cook and converse easily with anyone in the living room. It's nice to have a half bath downstairs too. Very "safe" feeling area. Also really close to our favorite fish market, Goatfeathers(try the Scamp). Another favorite spot was the pool. It was extremely hot and humid during our stay, and we found ourselves at the beach most of the time. But every night we would head to the pool(a short walk) around 5 and just sit and swim for a couple hours. Most of the time we were the only ones there. Another great perk if you are a tennis player, are the 2 courts right by the pool. They are very well maintained, and we were the only ones there also. Very close to Seaside, a short drive or bike ride away. We highly recommend this condo. It's the perfect location to enjoy all of what 30A has to offer and great owners too! Enjoy!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5
I brought my daughter and 2 year old grandson with me. Place pretty much had everything we needed just had to be careful as grandson wanted to go up and down stairs by himself. Everything you need for the beach is provided which is nice. The only problem we had was getting the air set at the right temp as it would freeze you out. We had it set on 80 and at times it was still to cold. Overall a very nice place and would highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. We are glad you and your family had a great time. Regarding the HVAC, I will have the contractor come out and recheck the thermostat just to be sure it is working correctly. I appreciate you letting me know..... Please come back and see us again next year!

Location

From the Owner

We fell in love with Seagrove Beach, especially Cassine Gardens. Seagrove was laid back and intent on not becoming commercialized like Destin or Panama City. The beaches were also incredible. The sand is powdery white and the water is an incredible emerald color almost year round. That's probably why the Gulf Coast is regularly included in the Beaches of the Year awards. As for Cassine, it offered a unique beach / serene nature setting. The homes and townhomes are spread throughout a cypress grove so the area is quiet and peaceful. We knew after visiting Seagrove that we had found our second home!
