About The Owner
We are the Peacock family and we fell in love with the Highway 30-A area 20 years ago. The Owner purchased this house in 2001
There is no other neighborhood quite like Old Florida Beach. We purchased our home knowing that this was the perfect vacation location to raise our 8 year old son.
Old Florida Beach is one of the best neighborhoods for families with young children. The summer months always have plenty of children riding bikes and scooters well into the evening!
