This house is truly a home and was perfect for our group. It had everything we needed. We were three couples with lots of space for us all. Two other couples joined in for dinner and we were well equipped for great entertaining. The kitchen is truly fully equipped. The entire house was very clean. The beds were very comfy with nice linens. Bathrooms had good amenities and nice linens as well. The outside space was fabulous. The pool was heated to exactly the temperature promised. We hope to stay at Abounding Grace again and would highly recommend the place for family and friends.

Wish we could have stayed longer

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for 3 families (6 adults and 5 kids). We were within short walking distance to Seaside square, bike rides away from Watercolor, etc. House was very clean and the kitchen had everything we needed for cooking. Loved that every room was a master with on-suite bathroom and the extra bunkroom and bathroom were great to have. My only wish is that we could have stayed longer.

The whole package...

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our summer vacation and 3rd stay in Abounding Grace. What a great house...wonderful layout, fully stocked kitchen, fabulous pool area, and the screened in porch is simply awesome. We couldn't have imagined a more perfect home for our 3 families. I believe it's the 2nd house out of Seaside, so it's an easy walk or bike ride to the town square. Great location, very clean...hands down our favorite beach house in this area.

Can't wait to return next summer!!

Fabulous property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with another family at Abounding Grace this past Spring Break. What a lovely property! The kitchen has EVERYTHING you could possibly need to cook or bake. Great layout. The kitchen open to the dining and living room worked so well for us--and it's big and roomy. Space for the kids. Space for the adults. We had a total of 10 people. We grilled and used the screened porch for reading and relaxing. This is a very well-kept property. You are barely out of Seaside (1 house) so you can walk everywhere or bike. Immaculate. Great stay, thank you!!

Perfect location and great experience!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our babies' first beach trip with a few friends and the house was perfect! We took the master downstairs and all of our kid-less friends were upstairs with their own living area so they had their own space which was great! To say the kitchen was well stocked is an understatement! It had everything! The pool was large enough for all of us and the screened in porch was the perfect place to feed babies or have an afternoon snack. The paved streets start next door which was great with the stroller so we could walk to all of the restaurants, shopping, and food trucks in Seaside, which is our favorite place! We will definitely rent this home again!

More than we ever expected...Wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I are celebrating 35 years of marriage and had all of our children and grandchildren at Abounding Grace. This home has it all. A wonderful den and kitchen!!! We cooked some nights in that made the stay even more memorial. Suzanne's great fish tacos, Jon's wonderful Steaks, and Ben's fantastic coconut shrimp. We had 8 adults and 4 children for the week. Our stay has been fantastic. We rented a golf cart and were able to go everywhere. So much thought was put into the building and decorating this wonderful home. The upstairs is so spacious, 3 familys were absolutely comfortable with private baths and king size beds. Our favorite spot is the screened porch on the back with the great hammock. Safe for the little ones to play. Thank you so much for understanding what a family likes for vacation. We will be back!!! Ben and Jackie

Activity and Interests

An off-road paved path parallels all 18.6 miles of Scenic HW 30-A and runs along the emerald green and blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. This path winds thru nine distinctive beach communities, state parks, forests, dunes and coastal dune lakes. The paved trail is ideal for biking, hiking, jogging and rollerblading.

As well, approximately 60% of our area is dedicated to preservation. Hikers, bicyclists and nature lovers can enjoy over 200 miles of networking trails that interlace thru state parks and forests that stretch from the Gulf of Mexico to the Choctawhatchee Bay.
