    Hey everyone ! My family group of 10 wants to stay at Summer's Edge.
    Is there a map of this community showing which house is where ?
    We usually stay in Seaside and find their map very helpful.

    Thanks, Cathy

    Cathy:

    Don't think I've ever seen a map. Summer's Edge is all on Ryan street, with all but about 10 of the houses between Eastern Lake Drive and 30A. The rest are between Eastern Lake and the beach. All of them are within a couple of minutes walk to the beach.

    Which house are you going to rent? I'll have a look at it on my walk tomorrow morning.

    I know there used to be such a map on Beachseekers.com, but I don't see it on their website anymore (since the affiliation with Sandcastle Escapes it is noticably missing.)

    Thanks for the replies.

    I have been obsessive this afternoon and compiled a map for myself that
    answered most of my questions about specific locations. It took a while,
    but between 2 aerial shots and the fabulous emeraldcoasttours site, I
    "placed" 15 houses.

    There are so many great choices !

    Summers Edge is really popular for families. I'm sure you'll enjoy your stay there.

    As TreeFrog said, Summer's Edge consists of Ryan Street, so all of the houses are within probably 500 ft of each other, if that much.

    It also consists of the Chelsea Loop, just to the East of Ryan Street.

    The same folks developed both Summers Edge and Chelsea Loop, i think.

    Chelsea Loop has its own pool, while all the Ryan street houses share a pool. There are less houses on CL, so that pool is a lot quieter.

    Summer's Edge is a community with houses on 2 streets, N. and S. Ryan and Chelsea Loop. The community has 2 pools which can be used by any guest/owner on either street. The pool on S. Ryan is heated during the cooler months. There is one beach walk shared by all. It is a family oriented area, but most of SoWal is --- great area!

    Right. Chelsea Loop is part of Summer's Edge. It has a pool, as does the adjacent Ryan Street. My sister owns three properties in that area, so I am quite familiar with it.

    Hey Woodysgrl....I know exactly what you are going thru!! First, you all have made a great choice in Summer's Edge....(I am partial as a homeowner there!)...but seriously if I can help you with house choices please feel free to PM me with any questions....before we built our house there we rented a lot of them over the past 4 years!! We don't rent ours so I can be very neutral with my recommendations....based on the needs of your family! Good Luck!!

    i've been comtemplating booking in summer's edge as well(we usually do grayton). I'm eyeing a house called "BeachViews". I really like it because it has a private pool as well as access to a community pool where my 6 year old can make friends.

    I cannot seem to figure out where it is, even when i google earth it.

    does anyone know how close to 30a it is? if you can give me an idea of how many houses down from 30a i can probably locate it on the map.

    also, i'm considering a house in seagrove called "anger management". it says it's a 2min walk to the beach but doesn't say whether or not it's south of 30A.
    anyone know?

    thanks for all this info. it really helps.

    Reece, I believe Anger Mgt is north of 30A. Can't determine which house is BeachViews....what website are you using for it? I will see if I can figure it out from that....PK

    BeachViews is on Brown Street, just north of Eastern Lake Drive. It is the third house north of Eastern Lake on the east side. It's one street to the east of Ryan (aka Summers Edge).

    It's a popular house, but I'd be surprised if you would have access to the Summers Edge community pools, since it's not part of that development.

    And SJ's pushpin is poked into Brown street right in front of BeachViews. You can even see the pool in the back yard.

    The street (really more of a 1-lane alley) that Google Earth labelled as Brown St. is actually Bel Mar. It runs through Eastern Lake Nursery at the 30A end.

    Reece, for a place where your 6-year old could make new friends, Ryan Street would be a better choice than Brown Street. It's always full of kids. The houses on Brown Street get families, too, there are just less of them. (Anticipating flames from owners of Lemon Drop, BeachViews, and the other 2 houses any minute now...)

    :D wow
    thanks everyone! i assumed that beachviews was IN summer's edge, but as a couple of you have pointed out, it's only near it, which wouldn't give us the private pool and the community that i'd thought i'd found.

    back to the drawing board i guess. a private pool is more important to me than a community pool, so i may head back to grayton. :)

    any suggestions would be cool.
    we need 3 bdr(could do 4), and a pool. We want to be close to the beach, not have to cross 30A and if not in Grayton, we'd love to be walking distance to Seaside, with a really nice and CLEAN house. All for $3000 or so :) June 2-9 ----possible or am i asking to much.

    you guys rock

    Hey! I was going through all the responses to the first question, and i still have one. Does anyone know where the Rivendell house is located? And how close it is to the pools? And how far of a drive to Seaside? It says 100 yds from the beach so i'm guessing it's on the scenic side of the Eastern Lake rd. Thanks, any help is appreciated!

    Sadiebatson, The owner of Rivendell is a sowal poster and hopefully will see your post....but in the meantime.....it is very short drive to Seaside....maybe 2 miles. Rivendell is in Summer's Edge on Ryan St and is between 30A and Eastern Lake Rd.....it is a very short, easy "stroll" to the pool.....
    maybe something like 15-16 houses from the pool....that is an estimate....I walk it often and it is very easy. We stayed in Rivendell and it's a very comfortable roomy house.
