The showstopper of the area is the 12,000 square-foot lagoon pool. With a waterfall, fountain, and children's splash area we know you'll find your perfect pool day at Seacrest. Surrounded by palm trees and poolside loungers, it might be hard to split your time between this pool and the beautiful Gulf.

Seacrest is a perfect destination with beautiful white sand beaches, coastal dune lakes, open green spaces, restaurants, and entertainment venues. Located near all your favorite 30A communities like Rosemary Beach, Alys Beach, Seaside, and Seagrove Beach, you'll have swift access to a variety of shopping and dining venues that are spread out along the Gulf Coast. The 19-mile paved bike path that parallels the entire length of the scenic highway 30A makes getting around easy.

"We had an amazing vacation! Our stay at “Our Blue Haven” was the perfect opportunity to “chase our blues away” - truly the perfect getaway. From the spacious plan, details within the home creating ease of use, to the close proximity to amenities and walkability to the beach, we couldn’t ask for a better vacation experience"

"The house is decorated very well, the layout is perfect for a big family. Overall our experience here was so much fun! Benchmark was responsive with bringing a new coffee pot when ours didn't work and quickly brought more gas for the grill.... However...the house needs a deep clean, bugs on the window sills, light fixtures full of dust, kitchen cabinets needed wiping and drawers were full of crumbs. We could have dealt with that but when we arrived, there was a bed without a mattress pad...and then later we realized another bed had a mattress pad that was filthy with urine and blood stains. Somehow this passed their inspection! I washed it so I felt better with our son sleeping on it, but it was still stained. I called and Benchmark said they could not replace it because they had none in inventory! We also were never brought enough washcloths and never had hand towels for any bathrooms. We asked for 2 days and finally I went out and bought enough for the 11 people in the house. Again, their response was there was not enough in inventory to give us any. Send your people out and purchase some then! I questioned the cleanliness of all the linens after finding that mattress pad...we will not rent from Benchmark again."

"Beautiful house- lots of space. Only issue was the kitchen amenities need to be updated (ice machine barely works, only one frying pan, dishwasher poor). Beds were comfortable and we loved all the balconies! Great location- unless you want to go to the beach during Spring Break...the county passed an ordinance that gave ALL renters a small sliver of beach to relax on. You needed to get there by 9am to find a spot and there were literally thousands of us in a small area. Lots of "private" beach on both sides of us, but we weren't permitted to use it. For this reason- we won't be returning to Rosemary/Seacrest area. Again, don't want to take anything away from this beautiful house, but the beach situation was AWFUL. The pools were amazing, but chairs were hard to find due to overcrowding (likely due to beach situation)."

"I traveled with my daughter and great-granddaughter in the off season - just the three of us in this lovely, comfortable home. Benchmark was very communicative throughout our stay, reaching out to offer us early check-in, and making sure everything was in order. The front porch swing was a big hit with our little one, who was the only one among us to test the waters in February.

The beaches are spectacular, the shops are lovely, and the restaurants are great. George's and Idle Hound Proper were especially memorable.

The only hiccup with our stay was the gas fireplace, which was not in working order. We had a couple of cold days, and it would have been nice to light a fire. Ultimately, though, we decided not to bother making a call to the management company.

This property would defintely host a crowd; but for us it was the perfect retreat.

"Beautiful home in a great location! We had a wonderful family vacation and had plenty of space for us and our 4 adult children. Texting the rental company was easy and convenient and they responded quickly. One example is when we needed a new propane tank for the grill - I texted later in the day and it was replaced the next morning. We would definitely go back!"

"We are still on a cloud from this wonderful visit! We had a large, multigenerational crew and the layout was perfect for meals, games, fun conversations. The home is well appointed--holy smokes everybody even had a balcony or patio! My sister is a chef and the kitchen had everything she needed. There were plenty of seats by the pool, which is a show stopper. The tram to the beach was fine, but the walk is so short you don't really need it (and I'm not a walker!) Benchmark handled everything promptly--they thought of everything! T"

"This home has awesome curb appeal and excellent porches. We enjoyed our stay. Everything was well maintained and property management was very good. The home is original and feels like it is ready for upgrades. It is comfortable and in good repair, just very dated. The few upgrades completed do not blend very well. There are many good things about this home, but here are the disappointments: 1). The living room is too tiny to accomodate the very many guests. 2). The screen porch is awesome but barely used b/c you have to go through a guest bedroom to get to it (super sad design). 3). Not much, if any, sound proofing between the three levels - house is very noisy at night 4). VRBO photos of rental were not accurate when we arrived - no bunk room and 3rd floor only had a Murphy Bed and no sleeper sofa --- We enjoyed our stay, but would not rent this again, mainly b/c of the tiny living room and limited access to the best screened porch along 30A."

"The house itself was fine. Although cockroaches were crawling on the front porch, making it unusable and also inside the screened back porch, also making it unusable. After contacting Benchmark the first time with complaints of roaches, we heard nothing for 24 hours. Keep in mind, we did have a baby crawling around the back porch. When asked for accountability, the excuses began, "the pest control company said it would be 2-5 days before treatment could be done. " Absolutely unacceptable. When I was insistent (after 24 hours) that something be done, they caved and said the maintenance team could spray. After the 2nd complaint of roaches, with the back porch, we asked for some type of financial compensation off our rent. Benchmark's solution was to promise a whopping $131 off our over $4000 stay, which we have not received yet. We had many text messages and emails, they never called us. I can provide whatever receipts needed to help the owners understand the lack of accountability and lack of urgency BM had for our family in this home. I am sure the owners are lovely people, the management company is however, not."

"Great house in a great location. The pool and shuttle carts were a big hit with guests.
The third floor room is poorly air conditioned, making it almost unusable. It relies on floor vents from the 2nd story unit. Gets hot during the day and does not cool much at night.
The limit of only two cars in the driveway seems a bit arbitrary as it could easily fit 3. For a unit that sleeps as many as it does, more likely than not guests will have more than two cars. Street parking was usually not a problem, but you could have others park in front of you.
Giving the overall rating of 4-stars primarily because of the A/C problem on the third floor."

"Great vacation. Relaxing. Great accommodations. We did not know about Seacrest Beach’s policy regarding wristband change on Sundays. Had problem getting to the beach on Monday (along with 25 to 30 other guests). Our stay was Wednesday through Tuesday. Otherwise great vacation."
