About The Area

Seagrove Beach got its name from the thick grove of windswept oak trees along the beach. Seagrove is a two-mile-long beach community located on the Florida Panhandle, on the Gulf of Mexico, in Walton County, Florida. It is located along County Highway 30a, east of Seaside, Florida and west of Seacrest Beach.

Like the other communities along 30a and Florida's Emerald Coast in general, Seagrove Beach is known for its scenic and appealing "sugar white" beaches and blue/green waters. Tourism website "" describes Seagrove Beach as "laid back, but luxurious" and home to upscale boutiques, casual cafes, a state park and rare coastal dune lakes.

Besides being located on the Emerald Coast at one of the top beaches in the world, Seagrove offers a range of activities from exploring nearby Point Washington State Forest, rare coastal dune lakes inhabited by freshwater and saltwater fish to browsing quaint shops and frequenting restaurants along scenic highway 30-A.

Perfect house on the perfect street in the perfect location on 30A!

My family of 5 stayed the week with my brother's family of 5 at Toes in the Sand, and we enjoyed every minute. The house itself is very spacious and homey. The street is very quiet and felt very private. Just a few minutes walk to both neighborhood pools and the beach. There were several bikes, beach chairs, buckets, shovels, etc., and a beach buggy on the property for us to use if we chose to. The neighborhood seems to be right in the center of everything we wanted to do while there. I recommend The Donut Hole at the East end of 30A, The Red Bar in Watercolor, and Great Southern in Seaside. If you like seafood, swing up the street to Goat Feathers and have them steam a few pounds of shrimp with their seasoning and bring it "home" to share at the large dining table. Kevin was great to work with and I'd recommend Toes in the Sand to anyone wanting the perfect vacation in Seagrove.

Great Beach Life

Toes in the Sand is definitely home away from home. Very quiet and peaceful area. We definitely experienced the rest and pleasure of the beach life. We really appreciated Kevin's help and follow up. His interest on ensuring we were comfortable and enjoying our trip was appreciated. We definitely want to come back!

Great location and wonderful house!

Great house! Our family had a wonderful vacation stay at Toes in the Sand! We would definitely recommend this house for a family. Very convenient location, a short bike ride to Seaside and Seagrove stores and restaurants as well as the local grocery store. Easy beach access too. We hope to be back in the future. Enjoy!

Beachy Keen!

"Toes in the Sand" was everything you could hope to have in a vacation home. Kevin & Stacy were prompt to reply, payment was easy online & my deposit was refunded in a timely manner. 1. N.Ryan was great-quieter than S.Ryan(we have stayed there), a deadend(great for kids), and an easy walk to the beach. 2. Exceptionally clean 3. Kitchen was well-equipped-lots of pots & pans and utensils.'Loved the coffee pot 4. Tower room was great-a nice cool breeze to relax with a good book 5. Beds were super comfortable-loved that there were 2 kings 6. Air Conditioning worked great, upstairs & down 7. Nice furniture in living area, great for a large family. It was a little big for my 4'11 frame 8. Grocery shopping was nearby Overall, I would highly recommend. The only problem was that we received emails with 2 different door access codes & 2 wi-fi codes. This could have been a problem, but we discovered the error early in our stay and worked it out. We did not realize that it was Fall break for some kids, so the beach was more crowded than we would have liked. Traffic has gotten bad, but I guess that comes with growth. I am pretty picky, but I will have to say that this was a wonderful place to stay -- comfortable, well-equipped & nicely decorated. Kevin & Stacy were highly attentive and a joy to work with.

Great Beach House!

We have vacationed many times in this area and we never knew about this little hidden gem of a neighborhood. The homes are architecturally similar yet each one has it's own unique design and color combination. The streets are tree-lined with sidewalks on each side making the short walk to the pools and beach easy and shaded. Even though there are chairs at the house that you can use, we liked having the option of renting chairs and umbrellas at the beach. The owners have decorated the home with items and art that feel so homey and not cookie cutter at all. The home was clean and well stocked with everything you could need. We were so happy to be at a pet friendly home that even had a fenced-in back yard. The owners are very responsive and easy to work with. It is obvious that they love this home. We had a great week and hope to come here again. Thank you for allowing us to be there!
