Of course we love to enjoy the beach and outdoors but we have loads to do. Summer Haven is a short 2.3 miles to Marineland. WE are miles to the Boat ramp to Fort Matanzas. For Pizza we love Tony's Pizza or casual seafood on the beach at South Beach Grill. For live music you can go to RedFrog and McToads or Oasis. We have a Circle k just a block away from the house for quick items. We love Salt Air Farmers Market.

Hey Ya'll we are "Beach Girls" who love to be in salt air or in the water. We adore hosting friends and family and being sure everyone is comfortable. We are total foodies and love to explore the food scene everywhere we travel. Gretchen is a mom of twins who has learned to travel and share new experiences. I can't live without my husband of over 20 years and our adventures together. We usually know when we are arriving and when we are leaving but nothing else. We have found the most amazing spots and met the most fantastic people living like this! Give us a sunset on the waters edge, a fantastic book OR girlfriends and a craft- cocktail....HEAVEN! We really want you to have the same experience
