It doesn’t get more peaceful than long afternoons spent swaying in a hammock by the water. What are you waiting for? Pack a basket full of delicious snacks and get to relaxing!
2Rustic and Refined Retreat
This spacious soaking tub is calling our names. Please excuse us while we drop in a bath bomb—or 12! And how gorgeous are the dark paneled walls and rustic pebble shower?
3Light and Airy
Who else falls asleep the second that warm sunshine hits their face? The rays glimmering through these windows blur the line between outside and in, transforming this living room into a haven for relaxation.
Everyone needs a little break from the sun on a beach trip—and we know just the place! This beach house along scenic 30A wouldn’t be complete without this lounge-worthy patio perfect for relaxed living.
5Breakfast in Bed
French toast, eggs Benedict, or bagels and fruit—we don’t care what it is. Any meal in this tranquil bedroom is a win. And why don’t we wrap up the morning with coffee on the dreamy window bench?
6The Cozy Corner
The paneled walls, timeless patterned cushions, and perfectly placed window give this darling little nook a fairy tale-like charm. Put us here on a rainy afternoon with a good book in hand and our hearts are content.
7Crisp and Cool Bathroom
This bathroom is a sanctuary away from the rest of the world. The neutral palette and clean lines make this space all the more appealing while the wall sconces add just the right amount of warmth.
This is the spot, the place we’d like to start and end each day. With a view this picture-perfect, we would have a hard time justifying ever leaving this swing.
9Simple and Serene
A four-poster canopy bed draws the eye directly to the large and cushy piece of furniture, making it the star of the show in this airy retreat.
Reading by the beach is a hard job, but someone’s got to do it. A glass of kiwi lemonade and the sound of waves coming and going send this gorgeous porch swing to utter perfection.
11The Spa Treatment
The subtle fabrics and natural light in this bathroom add to the spa-like quality and elevate the feel of the space. Winding down in this spacious tub would be a dream!
12Wind Down in White
This neutral and serene canvas evokes a spa-like feel and beckons afternoon naps. The whitewashed floors and walls make you feel like you’re right on the beach, without the heat or sand.
