Seacrest Beach North Community Pool

Rivard

Seacrest Beach is a captivating, perfectly planned residential community located at the far eastern end of Scenic 30A on high dunes overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. The laid back atmosphere is evident as soon as you arrive since rows of towering palms along this route and a whitewashed wooden lifeguard tower labeled “Seacrest Beach” welcome you to town. Included in the town’s design is a truly impressive humanmade tropical oasis of sorts that provides a gorgeous setting for a gigantic community pool. It serves adjacent homes in the northern portion of Seacrest Beach.
 
This crown jewel of Seacrest Beach features a virtual tropical forest of hundreds of Royal Palm trees that are planted around the enormous swimming pool that encompasses 12,000 square feet of sparkling fun. This pool has the distinction of being one of the largest located in the entire Florida Panhandle. It is actually a number of interconnected pools on multiple levels with waterfall spillways at each end that flow down into the main pool. They form a right angle design from each side that meet in the center where a large raised circular pool is located and adorned with a big fountain in the middle. On hot summer days, children and adults enjoy frolicking underneath the refreshing spray that mists down from the fountain into the pool. The other pools include separate kid and adult areas along with two designated lap pools available for avid swimmers. Surrounding this piece of paradise are walkways, gardens, covered picnic pavilions, BBQ grills, bathroom facilities, and even a grassy lawn amphitheater that stages occasional concerts. If you ever desire to leave the pool, a convenient tram will take you to and from the beautiful beach in very little time.
 
Rivard by Ocean Reef vacation rentals offers some wonderful residences that have the use of this fantastic amenity. They are all a very short stroll away from the pool. These are large rental homes with multiple guest quarters and beds with the ability to sleep ten to eighteen guests. Here is a brief description of each.
 
Serenity at Seacrest sleeps ten carefree and is aptly named since the nostalgic golden Old Florida style includes a columned veranda out front along with a covered balcony above it that invites you to relax and enjoy the balmy breeze while sipping some lemonade or your favorite tropical drink. Interiors include upscale modern appointments for comfort accentuated by rich honey-toned hardwood flooring, soaring ten-foot ceilings, crown molding, and lots of windows that provide a light, bright look.
