About the property

Steps to Beach Access, Two story End Unit Townhome, 2 BR, 2.5 BA, Sleeps Seven

Thanks for visiting.

Our property was just renovated. That included a new Beauty Rest Pillow Top mattress in the master, all new stainless appliances, new paint, new carpet, new furniture and décor in several rooms etc. (See pictures!) The property is also a very close (~275 yards) from the beach access. To put that into perspective, you can hear the surf if there is any...... More details follow.


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.


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.


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 another townhome that can be rented with this property. It is Poolside Serenity. It is approximately 100 yards from this property and is VRBO ad number 802171. Please ask for details. Discounts may apply.

About Quinton

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.

Quinton purchased this townhome in 1997

Why Quinton chose Seagrove Beach

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!

What makes this townhome unique

Cassine offers a serene nature and beach setting. It also offers two pools, two tennis courts, nature and fitness trails and a small lake with a gazebo and grills. As for our unit, we also offer two free adult bikes so that you can enjoy the nearby bike trails and free beach equipment. On top of this, the unit is only 275 yards from the beach access.

Highly Recommend this Beach Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fabulous time during our recent stay! We were extremely happy with the location and the cleanliness of the townhome. To top it all off the property manager was amazing and was available to answer questions and help us as needed since we were first timers to the area. The beach is a short 5 minute walk and the trails and pool in the community were a huge bonus! Plus, the townhome had beach gear and bikes to use so we didn't have to rent these, another bonus. We could not have picked a better place to spend our wedding anniversary and we will definitely be back!

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time and were extremely pleased with the cleanliness and well maintained townhouse. Everything was there to make our stay comfortable! Location was ideal, 30 minutes to Destin and 30 minutes to Panama City Beach. Five minute walk to the beach and one minute walk to the pool! We are looking forward to booking this again in the near future.

The condo was just as it appears on the website. Clean, comfortable and well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the use of the beach gear and bikes (and saved money on rentals). I loved the location....wooded area behind the property leads to a beautiful and tranquil trail, 2 nearby pools, short walk to the beach and a safe/quiet neighborhood for nighttime walks. My teen/tween kids enjoyed the freedom of the nearby bike path. Condo sits in a quiet portion of Seagrove Beach with easy access to Seaside and Rosemary beach by bike or car. We will definitely come back!

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us! We are also glad you enjoyed the free bikes and beach equipment. We know how hard it is to pack for a family trip (without worrying about a few bikes and beach equipment)! Please let us know when you are back in the area!

Treehouse by the beach!

  • 5 of 5

A great "beach treehouse" was a perfect description from someone in the past reviews here who stayed at Inspired By Nature. It's across the street from the ocean, short walk but there an awesome 4x4 type cart there to help you shuttle your goods down there. Plenty of necessities in the closet as well.....bikes, frisbees, sand toys, kites, balls, many NICE chairs and beach towels, etc. The condo itself is so homey and well decorated. Recently painted and new carpet from what I can remember from our last stay last year. Newly decorated using such great 'sea' colors that just settle you right down and make you feel like the place was done just for you. SUPER homey, cozy and CLEAN! Which I am a huge fan of and i know many of you other mothers are as well. Our 3 and 4 year old kids absolutely loved the kids room. Was super bright and colorful and very sweet. The bed in the master was the BEST EVER! We all looked forward to nap time. :)

We loved it. We have stayed also in the Huseman's other condo, a new 'addition to their family' named, "Poolside Serenity" 802171

Ck it out. We stay here year after year and the service as well as upkeep of the condos is fantastic. The manager on site actually lives close and is there for any issues. Great place.

Perfect garden home

  • 5 of 5

All around perfect. The walk to the private beach area is short. Kitchen had everything you would need including a crockpot! Quinton is very responsive to emails, which I appreciated. He also checked in a couple of times to ensure our stay was as expected. Fishing pond is super close and very quite. I found the included bikes to be very valuable, they are rather pricey to rent and biking to the square is the only way to go. The homes interior is newly updated and was very clean upon arrival. Our family has already decided, we'll be back next year to enjoy this property.
