After much anticipation, the results are finally in for the winner of our Name the Beach House at Atlantic Beach contest. To celebrate the opening of the newest addition to the Festiva family of accommodations, we asked club members and owners to submit their suggestions for the chance to have their beach-embodied name chosen to display as the official title of the coastal haven. The lucky winner not only has their name proudly displayed for all who stay or pass the newly renovated three-story home to see, but they will also receive a $100 Visa gift card from Festiva!
Over 153 beach house names were submitted by owners and members and voted on by Festiva’s leaders and executive team. Though second and third place had a single vote separating their rank, our first place winner stole the majority making “Sea la Vie” the new beach house name! Submitted by Festiva Adventure Club member Jamie Poulas Hanna of Florence, South Carolina, Sea la Vie is a pun off of the French phrase “c’est la vie,” which is directly translated to “such is life.” The meaning behind the expression is similar to that of “going with the flow.” Substituting the word sea in to the well known phrase captures the location and essence of a relaxing vacation on the shores of Atlantic Beach and invites visitors to put their feet up and embrace a beach way of life.
Our runner-up entries include “Beach Bum Bungalow” submitted by Adventure Club member Jeff Wood of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and “Shore Thing” sent in by Catherine Creson of Georgetown, South Carolina. The excitement and participation from our Festiva families is riveting, and we are thrilled to have the continued support of our members.
