This place is pure paradise. Loved every aspect of our stay - the pool was beautiful and well maintained along with the house. Very comfortable stay! Only suggestion is to bring bug spray! Will def. stay here many more times I hope!!

Paradise by the Sea is a beautiful home on a somewhat secluded section of Crystal Beach which makes it perfect for a socially distanced getaway. We were a group of 4 adults who enjoyed this house for a secluded, quiet vacation.
The house decor is lovely and beds, sofas, and chairs are comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped with lots of pots and pans and a variety of small appliances. There is a definite lack of kitchen towels (there was one), and there are no potholders/hot pads which made cooking in the oven a bit of a challenge.
Additionally, neither the freezer ice maker nor the self contained ice maker was working. We tried 3 different times to call the property manager to report this and each time got no answer and a message that her voicemail had not been set up so no messages could be left for her.
The provided bathroom amenities smelled great, and were appreciated. It would have been nice if Kleenex were also provided.
Also, there were only 3 beach towels in the house. For a 4 bedroom house, this isn’t enough.
The neighborhood pool is peaceful and well maintained.
The mosquitoes were completely out of control during our visit, but this is not the fault of the home. I think the water retention ponds near the home may contribute to this, so I’d advise packing OFF or some other type of repellent.

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay. I really love the privacy. The pool and beach were wonderful. I highly reccomend. But bring tons of bug spray!
Elizabeth K. Aug 2020
Where do I start... the house and grounds were amazing. Beautiful clean modern home, with a gorgeous pool and private beach. I would stay here again in a heart beat!
Camille W. Aug 2020
This place is amazing for a family getaway. Paradise at the sea was the perfect beach house set up for my family!
Jennifer W. Aug 2020
House was beautiful. Lots of space for everyone. Bunk room was SO cool! Quick walk to gorgeous pool and beach.
Drawbacks: only 1 kitchen towel, no beach towels, kitchen supplies are very random (as if no one has ever lived or cooked in the house) no Tupperware, knives are very dull, AC unit is extremely loud, people can drive on the beach and do so very fast which is hard with kids. Fun experience but probably wouldn’t stay again.
Manager response:
Hello, Jennifer! Thank you for your review. We are happy to hear that you had an overall fun experience in this wonderful home. We value your feedback surrounding the inventory of the home and are working with our local staff to improve the Vacasa experience. We hope to host you again soon!

We’ve spent 2 summer vacations at this lovely beach home with our grown kids and grandchildren. There was plenty of room for everyone. The home is spacious, comfortable and beautifully decorated. The grandkids loved their bunk bed room. I especially liked our Gulf of Mexico views from the home and a constant Breeze which was delightful. The resort swimming pool is gorgeous! and they have music playing 24/7. What a relaxing vacation I highly recommend.
Robin T. Jun 2020
This house is beautiful and the pool is awesome! We loved the entire property and overall experience. I highly recommend this home!
Christine G. Jun 2020
The Seagrass community is by far the best, most family friendly place to stay around the area. All the houses are very nice and the Infinity pool looking out to the ocean really makes for a relaxing, kid friendly vacation. It is a gated community so you feel secure and the pool and beach are very close waking distance from any house in the community. The houses are modeled after the Rosemary Beach community in Florida and it really does feel like it; it’s what drew us to the area in the first place. We loved our stay and would stay again at this house or any of the other Seagrass rentals.

I would like to make note of the rental service Vacasa being a little on the lacking side. They are hard to communicate with and there were small details like no beach towels, empty hand soap containers in the bathrooms and tissues paper missed by them. I also would suggest a bit higher quality toilet paper :/ But given that Vacasa does mostly all the rentals in the area there isn’t much other choice and I believe it is a requirement to use them so don’t let that deter you from your stay. You will not be disappointed in this amazing house and all the others at Seagrass!
Manager response:
We apologize for the shortcomings you experienced with your stay due to us being short-staffed after COVID-19 impacted our industry so heavily. We are delighted to have guests once more and will get back to our 5 star service as soon as possible. Thank you!

Absolutely loved this home! The views are amazing! So nice having access to pool! Especially cabanas! Definitely worth the extra money for this house!
Victoria R. Jun 2020
This place is fantastic! Not only was the home beautiful, it was equipped with everything we could have asked for. The pictures don’t do this home justice! Also, you can’t beat the short walk to the private pool and private beach entrance. Great amenities all around. Book this place ASAP!
Venus J. Jun 2020
Beautiful home and pool. Plenty of space, nice kids sleeping area. Easy access to the beach. WiFi and direct TV not great. Lots of bugs outdoors. Need more kitchen towels.
Darrell H. May 2020
By far best vacation rental we’ve ever stayed in great location awesome views.
Justin J. May 2020
The home we stay then for 4 nights is easily one of the nicest on the peninsula and comes fully equipped for your vacation. The resort style pool was fantastic and the grounds are well maintained. This definitely brought Crystal beach vacations to another level and we look forward to our next trip.
Sara N. May 2020
We absolutely LOVED this place. The house was plenty big enough and so accommodating. We loved the pool and the easy access to the beach. Even on a super busy weekend, we pretty much had the beach to ourselves because of the location. We had such a good time and enjoyed every bit of it. I can’t say enough good things about Seagrass. Definitely worth booking!! I can’t wait to come back and stay here again!
Courtney M. May 2020
The house was beautiful and very peaceful. The entire process was very easy to check in and check out.
Hugo H. Mar 2020

Awesome pool
Jamey D. Jul 2019
We loved it. The kids liked the bunks in the upstairs loft.
Jennifer R. Jul 2019
Overall the house and property is amazing. Total of 7 people with 5 adult children and the house was big enough and well laid out that we did not feel like we were bumping into one another or uncomfortable. The pool is beautiful and we spent most of our time there.
The only thing keeping this review from being a 5 star rating is the queen bed. The box springs was broken and anytime you thought of moving the bed would creak horribly. Waking you up anytime you or your bedmate would move. We notified Vacasa on Friday and did not hear back before we left on Sunday. But hopefully they will replace that before the next renters.
Manager response:
Hi Jennifer, Thank you for your review. We appreciate your feedback on the bed. The manager is in touch with the owner on fixing the bed. We hope you will come stay again soon!
James C. Jun 2019

ghazi S. May 2019
This place was awesome and the pool is over the top.
Donna G. Apr 2019
Absolutely loved the house. Very clean, and everything was as described if not better. The pool was perfect for the kids. The beach was clean and easily accessible, although the kids never wanted to leave the pool. Highly recommended. We will definitely be back.
LaQualle C. Jan 2019
Paradise is an understatement. This place should be called HEAVEN on earth. Very nice and accommodating. I'll definitely recommend this property for families, couples, or a girls getaway!!! 2 thumbs up!!!

Chandra W. Sep 2018
This is a home that i would rent for every occasion. I truely enjoyed PARADISE BY THE SEA and have told my family and friends about this hidden gem. I will be selecting this home for other occasions.
Wilma O. Sep 2018
This house was an amazing luxury house. Slept 10 comfortably. Mosquitoes were horrible though and we weren't able to enjoy the beach, pool or the huge covered deck.
