March 23, 2013 "the house.... and location were perfect"
We all had a great time. The house was perfect for us for our spring break trip. Thank you for having the kitchen so well stocked (we are cooks!) and for all the amenties. The location is perfect, too! The house was just perfect for our four families!

Thank you so much for providing such an amazing venue for the Light/Goldstein Wedding. Our intimate family setting was a perfect fit for your home. The weather was perfect, the house is wonderful, and the village of Seaside is charming. We could not have hoped for anything more perfect! Our family traveled from Palm Springs, Atlanta, and Richmond to enjoy this amazing place! Thank you!
September 15, 2012 ".....perfect setting to gather, play, and relax"
We had a wonderful time together, coming from all over: California, North Carolina, and Pensacola. We don't see each other as often as we would like, so what a perfect setting to gather, play, and relax! Thank you for sharing this home with us. We have memories to last a lifetime! The Folands
July 8, 2012 "The best place we have stayed"

June 2, 2012 (via email) "Loved the convenience to Seaside and the beach"
Steve and Sonia, I'm not sure if we ever got around to writing in your guest book so I thought I would send a quick e-mail to tell you how much we enjoyed your fabulous vacation home last week. We had a great time and it was good to slow down and come together as a family. Loved the convenience to Seaside and the beach. The five bicycles were constantly in use and made it so easy to get around. Little kids loved the pool. Lots of compliments from our group; we could certainly see why your home is so popular. Hopefully we will be back soon! Cecelia Smith and family - Atlanta, GA
May 17, 2012 "...our second year at Thyme after Thyme"
This is our second year at Thyme after Thyme. Our family is growing and we plan on returning here. With four generations under one roof, we have made many memories and pleased our palates beyond reasonable delight! Next year I expect this beautiful home will fit us like a glove. We will be delighted to make more memories here. I would rather not leave today! Mother's Day turned out beautifully and our mothers are beautiful, too. Enjoy! The Casey families
May 5, 2012 "Loved the outdoor decks and view of the ocean"
Our children and eight grandchildren had a wonderful beach vacation in this beautiful home. Sixteen of us in all were accommodated with room to spare! We love the outdoor decks and view of the ocean. Thanks much! The Rocke families - Peoria, IL
April 7, 2012 "The home, view, and location were all perfect"
Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us! We three families traveled down from Chicago for Spring Break and what a wonderful time we had! We had the most fantastic weather - amazing - which allowed us to do everything we were hoping to.....and more! We deep sea fished out of Grayton.....we had a bonfire on the beach.....we saw sunsets over the gulf from the house.....we biked to breakfast at the Broken Egg. Of course we went to the beach a ton with sand castle building, walks, and boogie-boarding, and swam at the pool lots and lots. The home, view, location, and sound of the ocean were all perfect. Many thanks for such great memories for us all for Spring Break 2012! The Browns, the Wikels, and the Bucklews - Chicago, IL
March 19, 2012 "Ten stars out of ten!"

March 12, 2012 "such an easy, relaxing vacation.....we don't want to leave!"
We've been here since February 17th and we don't want to leave! It's been a wonderful two weeks, one with friends from college and a second with family. We can't thank you enough for all the great memories we've crammed into those two weeks! The closeness of the beach, the town, and the pool all made for such an easy, relaxing vacation. The children, ranging from 5 to 17 years old, all had so much fun as well. It's with sadness (and snowcoats!) that we head back to NH, but we are all well rested, recharged, and ready to face the rest of our winter. Thank you! The Moore family, and the Chi Beta crew - New Hampshire
December 17, 2011 ".....this house was perfect."
We are 19 people, 8 adults and 11 children, and we found a lot to be thankful for at Thyme after Thyme. We thought it impossible to find a house that's right for so many people, but this house was perfect. Seaside is the most quaint town we have ever visited, and we feel we have finally found a town we can visit annually - a place to reunite families and relax during the hectic year. See you in 2012! Thank you for your home! The Fox, Rogovin, and Belzer families - Columbus, OH
November 6, 2011 "had a wonderful time, will most certainly be back"
A group of 12 of us stayed here for the Seaside Wine Festival. Our 10th year to attend but our first stay in Thyme after Thyme. We had a great time. The proximity to the beach and all the restaurants could not be beaten. We all had a wonderful time and will most certainly be back. The Corbins - Birmingham, AL
July 16, 2011 "What a wonderful place for our beach vacation."
What a wonderful place for our annual family beach vacation. After 10 years of going to separate condos in Destin and a year in Hilton Head, we decided to all stay together here at Thyme after Thyme in Seaside. The cousins loved spending time together at the beach and in the pool. The parents enjoyed coffee in the morning overlooking the gulf from the wonderful 3rd floor balcony. We all loved walking into town and enjoying Seaside. We ventured one evening back to Destin & hit all that traffic - that was our final trip ever to Destin! We'd much rather walk into town! Thank you for a memorable vacation! The DiLeo's - Scottsdale, AZ & McKinney, TX; The Pelligrino's - Atlanta, GA; The Coxes - Little Rock, AR
July 2, 2011 "This was the perfect house for our family reunion."
This was the perfect house for our family reunion. There were 17 of us, 7 grandchildren (20 somethings) spouses, three great grandchildren, ages 2,3 and 4. The 2 kitchens came in handy when the babies woke up earlier than everyone else, they could have breakfast without waking the entire household. Everyone took advantage of the bikes, both for all the bike trails and to get to Seaside and Water Color. We loved all the terraces. Everyone got to have a bed. We used the pool every day and also went to the beach. The babies loved the small pool, too. The house was very clean and had all the advertised amenities. We had to call for maintenance and someone arrived in a few hours, even on a holiday weekend. Everyone said they would like to come back. I would definitely recommend this house to others. The Parrott families - Louisville, KY
May 21, 2011 "...the most wonderful place we have ever rented"
This is the most wonderful place we have ever rented in Seaside! Three generations totalling ten folks; the Farrell families and the May families have enjoyed their week! The kitchen equipment, the lovely entertainment areas, the laundry facilities, the pool area, the grilling area, etc. are superb. We supported local shops, restaurants, and Quincy's art supply shop. The weather was wonderful this week! Beth, Kevin, Rudy, Shawn, Maureen, Karelyn, Dave and children - The Farrell and May Families
March 2, 2011 "...incredible house...never enjoyed a home more"
What an incredible house.....and even better view! Thank you for allowing us to use your beautiful home - it was the perfect place to rest, relax, and reflect. I've been coming to 30A for 15 years, and I've never enjoyed a home more - nor had the pleasure of working with such fantastic owners. The Scarbrough group - Atlanta GA
December 21, 2010 ".....have never had such amenties."
We would like to comment on our stay at your Seaside Thyme After Thyme property. Our family stayed there Dec. 21-28. It was a perfect home for the thirteen members of our group. The furnishings were most comfortable and well chosen for the "ocean living". We have done joint family Christmas gatherings in several locations and have never had such amenities. The ample supply of linens, towels, dishes, kitchen utensils was wonderful. We have recommended your company and specific home to several friends who are planning vacations such as ours. We’ll be back! The Hickman Families

We had such a good time in Seaside staying in your home. It was our first "family-wide" vacation. We loved being together here. Your home is beautiful as well as so practical.

May 15, 2010 "Saw dolphins...and used the bikes each morning."
Saw dolphins a couple of mornings about 100 feet off the beach. What a sight while having coffee! Enjoyed the comfortable house & used the bikes each morning.....now that is the way to see the towns! The weather and beach were perfect the whole week we were here. We had family here from 4 states, Michigan, Arkansas, Tennessee, & Mississippi. This was the perfect place & vacation. Warmest regards, The Hartl families - MI, AR, TN, MS
April 26, 2010 "...very well appointed, comfortable home"
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We have been coming to Seaside for the last 11 years and this was by far the best. All the laughter and space for cooking, relaxing, etc. was wonderful. Many memories have been made this week and we are thankful for them all.
You have a very well appointed, comfortable home and we have had a ball. Hope to rent again next year. Thanks for all you did to make it nice. God has blessed each one of us and we are truly greatful. Thanks so much. The Hofman, Davis, and Scott families - Knoxville, TN

December 20, 2009 "This house was absolutely PERFECT for our family"
Thank you so much for this magnificent experience! This house was absolutely PERFECT for our family to spend Christmas together. We felt we had the absolute best view, and waking up and having breakfast overlooking a panoramic ocean view is indescribable. Our family had such a wonderful time and created many memories that will be etched in our hearts and minds forever. The children just loved waking up on Christmas morning with their presents under the tree and the beach just behind! To top it off....we ended our week roasting marshmellows by the pool! You thought of everything to make this enjoyable for all! We must also compliment the organization and the beautiful decor. The time taken to label things made for such an easy transition. We thank you so much for making our Christmas wish come true and we will see you again real soon! The Gaines and Heath families
October 11, 2009 "Magical place!"
Magical place!! Our first visit to the area and what a great place we chose to stay here at Thyme after Thyme!! The house is beautiful, relaxing, and exciting all at the same time. Dr. B. sounds like a super nice man, healing with his hands, heart, and home, and we would like to express our gratitude to him and his wife. Our only regret is that our week has passed and we have to leave, but we WILL be back!! Welcome to the next guests....may you have as much fun as we have!! The Hoppers, Dallas, TX
August 15, 2009 "16 of us total...we absolutely LOVED this place!"
We took our annual family trip here (16 of us total) and we absolutely LOVED this place! It was so nice for 4 separate families to all have their own space & bathrooms. The home is beautiful and the views are great. We had fun riding the bikes to the store and the nearby shops. The kids spent a lot of time in the pool and playing hide-and-go-seek - lots of good hiding spots! Overall a GREAT PLACE! The Masons, Bloomington, IN
April 18, 2009 "...we will recall our favorite home when making vacation plans next year."
And it's unanimous - no one wants to go home!! Thyme after Thyme proved to be the perfect home for our families. The teennagers' haven was the ground floor ping pong table, which also got "alternative" use as 'facebook central'. Plenty of room to gather as a large group (9 adults, 5 teenagers, one 10 year old), and lots of private space as well. We loved the bikes, the walking path, and of course the beach. We're all heading home tanned and well rested, and will recall our favorite home when making vacation plans next year. The Bertones, Bresnahans, Hogans, and Kinters of Newburyport and Salibury, MA
September 15, 2008 "beautiful home; had all the amenities we could have asked for"

July 11, 2008 "perfect for our entire family...we will be back again next year"
We googled Seaside and came up with Thyme after Thyme. It was perfect for our entire family - the Strawns, the Davenports, and the Anschuetzs all from Dallas. We have gone to South Padre Island for the past 25 years and decided to try Seaside. Wow! We feel like we have been in the dark! Should have come a long time ago. Thank you for renting this great house. We will be back again next year. Sincerely, The Davenports et al, Dallas, TX

December 5, 2007 "Fabulous....this is a slice of heaven."
What a celebration we had at Thyme after Thyme with the marriage of our beautiful daughter Kelsey. Filled the house with flowers, great food, candles, cake, and a lifetime of memories. Wedding on the beach Saturday, Dec 1--weather was sunny and 70 degrees. Over 30 of us partied at the pool with a DJ. Accommodations were fabulous--this destination is a slice of heaven--white sand, teal water. We will ALWAYS remember this special week. Thank you for making your home available to us. Loved every minute! The Thompson family, Lee's Summit, MO

Relax, enjoy, and say "Cheers to the Nortons!" The Norton family (City withheld by request)

As we hurried to leave this morning, I was reminded (by the safety rails on the children's bunk beds) that you have spared nothing in making Thyme after Thyme the perfect vacation home.

August 20, 2005 "This is a magical place."
How quickly Thyme flies, now tucked into a treasure trove of wonderful memories. This is a magical place. If while transcending toward the storied afterlife I were to lay over at Thyme after Thyme, I would feel assured I had made it. The companionship of loved ones, the exquisite interior beauty of this house, the sparkling waves and moonlit nights, endless running and riding paths....sumptuous meals and spirits...and when bidded onward, I would plead......"more Thyme." Obst family - Roswell, GA
July 23, 2005 "Once again, we enjoyed immensely our family vacation here"
Once again we have enjoyed immensely ou family vacation at Thyme after Thyme. We biked and walked and beached and ate our way through seven days of fun. This beautiful place is a perfect fit for us and we have built so many wonderful memories here. My three year old grandson learned to swim this year in the pool! As we return to Montgomery, Birmingham, Atlanta, and Macon, we will remember all the fun and the beautiful gulf views and we'll look forward to our return next year. The McEwen families
June 8, 2005 ".....never Thyme enough"
Thyme after Thyme is never Thyme enough. It's our last night staying here at this magnificent home and we're all dreading our departure tomorrow.

The memories our family made at this beautiful beach house will live with us forever! The Olsens, Chicago, IL
