Our first time at Thyme after Thyme. The 21 of us came from a small town in MS - Crystal Springs - ages 70, 68, 43, 40, 39, 36 (2), 35 (2), 30, 10, 9, 8, 6 (2), 5, 4, 3, 2, 1(2). We enjoyed both sunrises and sunsets from the great balconies.....great places for seeing God's handiwork. The kids "lived" in the pool (at least when they were not in the ocean!) We loved being able to walk to the town for ice cream. Our week was busy and oh so much fun. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home.....everyone is sad to leave.

The beautiful, safe, and very family-friendly New Urbanist town of Seaside is just a short stroll away (only 250 feet). There you'll find numerous unique restaurants, boutiques, art galleries, and a wonderful bookstore and record shop. Throughout the year, Seaside has free outdoor concerts, movies, and many special events. A 30 mile long oceanside biking and walking path courses directly in front of the house. Walk to the Seaside Tennis Center, which is available to our guests (nominal fee), or take a short drive to the Santa Rosa Golf Club. Kids (and adults!) love the ground floor game area with table tennis and the private, palm tree-shaded Bocce ball court. Relax in your totally private heated pool or gather in the evenings around the romantic stone fireplace in the courtyard. Of course, most importantly, the gorgeous beach and azure gulf are only steps away! For more photos and info, visit BestBeachPlace (dot com).
Thank You to all our wonderful guests!...for making 'Thyme after Thyme' South Walton's most popular beach vacation home (% occupancy), six years in a row (2006-2011)
