About the Property
Open the door to your gulf front condo and allow your vacation to begin. You've arrived to what we lovingly call, "Flip Flops", located in the heart of Seagrove Beach and within a 2 minute drive to the town center of Seaside.
Flip Flops is completely updated and practically brand new each year, as we keep it up and meticulously aim to make it better for you - Our Guests.
Our guests enjoy gulf front living room views with comfy seating for 4. A full completely stocked kitchen and for the coffee drinkers - 2 coffee pots ( Keurig and Regular). There is a blender, microwave, oven, fridge, toaster, electric stove top, dishes, all basics you'll need, and a community grill outdoors in the common area. It is a charcoal grill so guests supply their own charcoal.
Sleeping arrangements at Flip Flops is comfy and simple. We have a queen bed for the master with TV DVD Combo, dresser, closet and a shared full bathroom. There are bunks in the hall with curtains that shade away the morning sunlight. Top bunk has a built in safety rail.
We invite you to come down to the Emerald Coast to experience the simple pleasures of beach time. Included in your vacation from March - October 2018, will be a set of lounging beach chairs and an umbrella. Complimentary and set up daily out on the beach just for you!
Flip Flops sleeps a maximum of 4 guests. Minimum age to rent is 26, but we can/will make exceptions for younger married couples or friends traveling together. Just ask us. There is a security refundable of $300-returned within 7 days of departure.
Payments: Guests may pay by credit card with no extra fees or checks are accepted as well. Down payment is $500 to hold the condo and the balance is due by 60 days before arrival. We can also break up payments into 3, if easier.
Cars: One car per unit and guests will receive a parking pass for their stay.
When I stand outside onto the beach and watch the waves of the ocean it just reminds me to enjoy the simple things of life. Come and watch the waves from your living room window anytime.
I think what makes this one unique is the coastal dune lake is right next door and perfect for kids that don't want to jump the waves, or maybe want a break from the salty waters.
Why Kids Love It
Kids love the beach! Watching kids splash around with huge smiles on their faces is a blessing and here are a few other reasons why kids want THE BEACH over DISNEY.
Mom and Dad won't tell them to "slow down" as they race up and down the beach in absolute freedom!!
They can learn to fish, go crabbing at night, go kayaking, go swimming, float on their rafts with their friends, in fact even meet NEW BEACH PALS to play with on their vacation.
Collect sea shells, watch tiny fish around their feet in the clearest of the Gulf Waters, and build masterful sandcastles with dad.
The area is known as a family vacation spot because it is filled with boutique shopping for mom, casual family fare to fine dining for couples and families, ice cream stops and treat stores for the kids, beach activities and bike rentals, events for the whole family to do, local artist galleries... So many more beautiful wonders await you!

Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: Flip Flops became a reality for us in 2009. Tim and Patty (that's us) decided to jump in, buy a small lot of sand and build back the once well known "Leeward" of Seagrove Beach. The building had been previously knocked down by the hurricane that hit in the earlier years.
As kids, we had different visions of our life. Tim wanted a life at the beach. In fact, his childhood dream was to build grand coastal beach homes, thus he went into contracting. Yet, that took him to Miami and South Beach building banks, hotels, etc. He was in the high life, but it was a busy one and not quite right for him. I, on the other hand, grew up in Germany as a Military Brat and wanted to stay in Europe, grow old, marry a soldier and have 0 kids. lol.
Yet, somehow God thought "these two souls are made one another".
When we met in 2009, Tim's stories of "what it could be like living at the beach" had me changing my mind pretty quickly!! So in that same year, we took a trip to Seaside 30A. Then, not so built up, but still famous and touristy. We stopped off in a smaller town called Seagrove Beach and fell in love with the area instantly. We called a realtor and purchased a sand lot.
Today, I am happily the mom of two beautiful sons, live an amazing life, and with all the lemons life dealt us - we continue to grow and stay strong. We are blessed.
We hope you allow us to host you and your family in our home away - Flip Flops.
Why this property? It's serene. The colors of the unit are perfect and not the older Florida styling and it's completely updated to give our guests just what they need at the beach.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are beach chairs and umbrella included?
YES! We include professionals to setup them up for you right on the beach! ONLY IF your stay is within the March - October only. If your stay is not within that seasonal time frame then you can rent them directly from the beach vendors.
Is the unit really GULF FRONT?
This one always makes me laugh. I know some owners say it is gulf front, but what they meant was walk a few minutes to see the beach? Not in this case. Flip Flops is 100% beach front!
How close are restaurants and can I walk to them?
Yes! You can walk to dining. Guests have enjoyed grabbing lunch at The Perfect Pig ( eclectic atmosphere and casual fare ). It's about 15 minutes. I rather drive and be there in less than a minute, but you can walk it.
This location is perfect! It’s on a dead end street and close to the lake too. We walked to lunch almost daily with our kids and drove into Seasode town center for dinner. We will stay here again. We loved it!!
