Step into Sunshine
Florida is the Sunshine State, and our 30A family vacation homes reflect the beauty of that large golden orb in the sky, along with the serenity of the Gulf waters that will always be just a short distance away from the property you choose to temporarily make your own. Step into the light, swinging open the exterior doors, and discover spaces that entertain, charm, and wipe away any remaining stresses you may be feeling after your travels.
Floors of wood or tile create pathways to rooms filled with comfort, and as you drop your bags by the door, the most comfortable adventures will begin, starting with a tour of the open concept floor plans that can be found in a majority of our properties. Living rooms welcome and invite guests to sink into the plush depths of sofas and chairs, perhaps turning your attention to the large state-of-the-art televisions located opposite the furnishings. Scan through the channels for a few minutes, pluck a book off stocked shelves (Not all homes will provide reading materials, but many will often have games and movies lining the shelves or tucked away behind the doors of television cabinets.) and feel the relaxation begin. Your teens and tweens will be relieved to learn that high-speed internet will allow them to play their games and keep their social media websites updated, but we know that you will be secretly relieved to discover the stack of board games that will encourage them to interact.
The dining room is a space that invites communication between family members, providing enough seats for every seat in your family and multiple ways to enjoy the space! Friday nights are often considered game nights in our own households, but on vacation any night of the week is the perfect time to introduce the littles into the world of games that don’t need batteries to engage. Building puzzles together in this space is another family strengthening activity, and as you work together to finish the 1000-piece puzzle with its picture of dolphins swimming in the sea, you may be surprised to discover your children are actually quite good at fitting the weirdly shaped pieces into the right spots.
Family meals can be takeout ones ordered in from the nearest restaurants or can be ones you prepare yourself in our fully equipped kitchens that are truly the heart of the home. Cheerful spaces that are equipped with the newest appliances can be used for preparing family feasts, and as you share the secrets of your grandmother’s famous macaroni and cheese, you will be continuing a tradition that is even older than that of the family vacation. Of course, this IS a vacation, and if you only use the kitchen for making coffee and keeping beverages and leftovers chilled, no one will judge you! Most of our properties will offer an in-house laundry room or laundry closet, and anyone who has ever traveled with children will much appreciate the convenience of not being forced to pack for every wardrobe malfunction.
The Family Barbecue
At home, family barbecues are definitely fun, but are they really an opportunity to bring your immediate family closer? Usually included in the gathering are aunts and cousins, friends and coworkers, and your attention ends up being divided between all the guests. During your 30A family vacation, however, your attention will be 100% devoted to those you love most. Propane grills are often included as an amenity of our condos and homes, and that fishing charter you hired earlier in the week will provide plenty of seafood to add to the grill! Of course, you can also buy hamburgers, hot dogs, or ribs at the closest market or grocery store, (Your children will eventually grow out of that picky eater stage!) and as you sit out on decks, patios, or balconies, your favorite music streaming from your phone, all will be right in your world. All too soon you will have to return to real life with its chaos and insanity, but these moments spent watching the sun set, devour fresh grilled grouper, and laughing with the family will become the ones you remember best.
A Trip to Dreamland
Long days fishing in coastal dune lakes, frolicking at the beaches that are located just steps away, and even dipping in and out of souvenir stores and art galleries is destined to make the nights spent under the shelter of our roofs be something greatly looked forward to during your stay. Climb into the bottom bunk in the kids’ rooms with a couple of their favorite books and read to your youngest until their eyelids flutter to a close, or let the older ones get away with whispering and giggling longer than you would at home. The primary bedrooms of our family havens are designed to give parents the rest and relaxation they need, anchored by king or queen beds and providing en suite bathrooms, some with deep soaking tubs that will provide an easy way to slide closer to slumber. Offering televisions in some rooms, guests can prop themselves against headboards, laughing at the antics of their favorite sitcoms. And in those rooms where there are no TVs? Is there any greater luxury than the one of being able to lose yourself in the words written by your favorite authors, knowing you can afford to read one more chapter because no angrily chiming alarm clock is going to rudely awaken you the next morning! Alarm clocks on vacations should only be used for that last day when you can’t risk missing your early flight back to real life.
Find Joy in the Simple Moments
The beauty of a sunset shared with an awestruck teen, the laughter of your toddler when tiny fishes nibble at his toes in the clear waters of the Gulf, the secret glances you share with your most favorite traveling partners—these simple moments can be enjoyed anywhere on earth, but somehow, they will be that much more special because you are enjoying them here with us!
