Gulf View Luxury Penthouse, only 400 yards to the Beach; 1.5 miles East of Seaside Beach on 30A.

Only the penthouse units on the 4th floor have a water view.

OFFERING SPECIAL DISCOUNTS ON CERTAIN WEEKS- ESPECIALLY SHORT-TERM; POOL HEATED during these times: March thru 1st wk of April, 1st two wks in Oct, Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday weeks.

Co-owner is a high-end designer who spared nothing on this stylish and oh-so comfortable penthouse. With a busy life style and two kids, she designed it with every family member in mind, to make it an ideal vacation getaway. This condo has become a favorite for young families, families with teenagers & grandparents, executives, empty nesters and honeymooners.

Here’s why…

Location

SeaView Penthouse has an in-town yet private location. This new Gated community consists of three four-story buildings with two spacious units per floor and plenty of secured parking. The penthouse level is the only floor that captures a spectacular Gulf Coast ocean view and the easy elevator access is a convenient step away to the front door. To the rear is the Port Washington National Park with miles of walking and biking trails and the front borders 30A and a 15 mile bike path (a favorite family outing). Just 2 miles west enjoy boutique/trendy shopping, dining and activities of Seaside and Watercolor; and to the east you’ll find Eastern Lake, golf and events in Rosemary Beach. There’s both fine dining and barefoot casual restaurants within walking distance. We’ll send you our favorite picks and we keep a hand-made “How best to enjoy your vacation” album in the condo. Equal distance to both Destin and Panama City – you’re close to amusement and water parks, go cart racing and the famous Sands Outlet Mall with hundreds of popular name brand stores. And we're just 400 yards from building to beach.

Dedicated access gets you to the beach quickly through a private nature trail and we provide our folding marine dock cart to carry all your beach 'stuff' easily to the surf. The Gulf ‘Emerald Coast” beaches are world renowned for their crystal clear aqua-blue water and white sugar sand. Beach chairs and umbrellas are easily available upon arrival.

Casual Elegance

The Ocean view and open air dining and family room area is perfect for entertaining and large family gatherings. There’s dinner seating for 11 pp; 8 comfortably at the dining room table and 3 full back barstools around the extended granite island. It’s such a pleasure to entertain/cook in the well-equipped Gourmet kitchen with a beautiful view of the Gulf coast. There’s even a small wine/martini bar set up conveniently located between the kitchen and dining area. (It’s easily portable to move to the patio, remove for non-drinkers, or to keep out of a toddler’s reach)

The Master suite has a king bed with a 15” CA pillow-top mattress that is “to die for” - like “sleeping on clouds”. There’s an ocean view from the sitting area, and the private bath area dons a large Jacuzzi, separate dressing area, two vanities and separate shower. The 2nd bedroom can be considered a second Master suite with a king sized bed/ pillow-top mattress and private bathroom. The third bedroom sleeps 4 comfortably with one queen and two trundle singles; it’s a favorite for the kids with a festive sailing motif and the perfect set-up for video games. The curtains are made from real sail cloth and there’s a colorful adjoining bathroom with double access to the foyer. All rooms have state of the art electronics, flat screens TVs/DVDs. There’s also a plush queen sleeper sofa for additional guests who will wake up to the sound of waves when the surf’s up.

Need more options? - there’s a 2000 square foot pool; surround sound theatre in the family room; closets with games, books and puzzles, and all the amenities you are used to having at home. Cell phone and free Wi-Fi internet coverage is great and there’s a postal store for all overnight services just a block away.

Come create great memories at this unique get-a-way in South Walton and experience why most of our renters are repeat guests.

About the Owner

Welcome to our vacation home away from home! Throughout the year, we lead busy lives in Atlanta and always look forward to getting away to our Family Retreat. We are a family of three, with an extended family of too many to count! After years in the Corporate IT and Mktg/Communications world, we are working on a family internet business to allow us a more flexible lifestyle and time to spend with our rising highschooler and aging parents. The condo was built in 2005, is decorated nicer and much more comfortable than our home in Atlanta, so it doesn't take long to unwind in a sophisticated yet casual setting that feels like paradise. We use it to rejuvenate our family bonding, for fun with other couples & families, and even for just the two of us when we are in need of rekindling romance - something that easily gets sidetracked with hectic schedules. Our life priorities are Faith, Family & Friends and our Seagrove getaway allows us to honor this.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a surprise we had when we arrived. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous home! It made our vacation extra special. We have been coming to this coast for years now and this was the most relaxing trip for all of us. Watching movies was better than the theater. Even cooking was fun in your kitchen. The beach was still beautiful two weeks after Hurricane Dennis. We'll be back

Senior Siesta

  • 5 of 5
Our visit to this residence in early May was a success. The condo was as lovely as the pictures and the pool and grounds were excellent. The condo was spacious, comfortable and totally equipped for our weeks visit and time at the beach which is stunning and just a short walk from the property. We went with 2 other couples, mostly retired, and the privacy due to the layout of the apartment and spaciousness of the bedrooms and attached baths was appreciated. We could not hear anyone from the confines of our bedrooms and the beds were so comfy, much better than hotels. Loved the gormet kitchen and the spacious living and dining rooms and could enjoyed the huge balcony for our morning coffee. So much to do in the area. We will return as soon as we can. This is a must for a trip to the Emerald Coast with first class accomodations Yvonne was a great hostess and helped us navigate our first time renting thru VRBO.

The condo was pretty, comfortable, and had everything we needed. The location was away from the crowds, but close to the beach. We drove to the neighboring beaches and towns to enjoy, but were always glad to get back "home" to our quiet condo each night. Our teenagers enjoyed it too. Yvonne was particularly delightful to work with. We miss the time spent on the deck and walking to the walking to the water each night to say good night to the beach (in our pj's). :)

Owner's Response: Haley,
Thank you for your kind words. You mentioned what is most important to me when my family visits. To be close to everything but away from the busyness of crowds. And to be comfortable! I look forward to welcoming you back. Yvonne

Relaxing Spring Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I brought another couple to this luxury penthouse to celebrate our 30th anniversaries, and we had a total blast. We fully utilized the owner's thorough guidebook to the area, which took us to fun restaurants and seafood shops for the nights we cooked in. These accommodations are truly luxurious -and nice and quiet! So after a fun day at the beach (accessed through a little walkway across the street or a short drive to the public area), it's easy to crash into bed in quiet comfort. We hope to go back again and again!

Lovely & Spacious Condo

Lovely & Spacious Condo
  • 4 of 5
This spacious 3 bedroom condo is located in a quiet, upscale condo community in the Seaview Beach area. The kitchen as many high-end amenities such as SS appliances and granite countertops and is well stocked. For families, there is a large dining area with farmhouse table. Another great amenity is the separate laundry room with full size washer and dryer.

The beach is a relatively short walk down a tree-lined path that leads to a private entrance. Beach chairs and umbrellas can be rented during your stay. One of the nicest amenities was the 30 mile long paved bike path directly across the street from the condo. There are plenty of nearby bike rentals companies will deliver right to your front door. The only negative was that the condo elevator was temporary out of order during our stay and we had to lug suitcases and groceries up four floors.

and a relatively short walk away where you can rent umbrellas and chairs during your stay. There is a nice view of the gulf from your balcony on the top floor.

Awesome Place!

  • 5 of 5
This brave dad took his daughter and three other 16 year old girls here for spring break. The place is absolutely gorgeous and kept up very very well. The walk to the beach is easy and has restricted access. Access to restaurants and the grocery store is very close. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants a place to relax in comfort and enjoy the beach. The place is a great bargain.

You thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a wonderful time staying in your condo this week.
First of all, your condo is just beautiful.
We kept admiring the details of your decorating.
Secondly, you thought of everything – beach buggy, games (puzzles were a big hit), all the kitchen things.

Our daughters loved biking to Seaside each day and hanging out with their friends who were staying there in Seaside.
They said your location is perfect because it’s close enough yet far enough from Seaside to go if they want, but have a little distance if they want.

The private beach was spectacular – loved that.
Heated pool was huge and a big hit with our 13 year old son!

I also want to commend the security guard.
She noticed a construction worker whistling at our girls (they are 16) when they were walking by themselves to the beach.
She took immediate action, reported it and just took care of it.

Location

From the Owner

For us, we wanted a beach location, not in a large city that was an easy drive from home...just 6 hours from Atlanta. We considered many areas including Hilton Head, Amelia Island, Kiawah, and several other coastal cites in GA & South Carolina. The biggest difference with the East coast locations is the beaches. Nothing compares to the white soft sand and the clear pristine aqua blue waters on the Gulf coast. Sea Side is a bit too busy for us, but its perfect 2 miles away so we can walk or bike ride there for their many activities. The equal distance between Destin and Panama City affords more travel options with multiple airports. And for our wannabe professional golfer in the family, the golf courses are plentiful with good fairways & greens and good prices. For me, I never have time to shop at home, and being a bargain shopper, I can't beat the selection and prices at the hundreds of name brand stores in the outlet malls.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : NW FL Beaches Int'l Airport - ECP Panama City Beac at 24 Miles Nearest Barpub : Whiskey Bravo at 1.5 Miles Nearest Golf : Camp Creek GC-Seacrest (5) or Santa Rosa GC (13) at 5 Miles Nearest Motorway : 30A Nearest Restaurant : Seagrove Coyote, Old FL Fish House(.6)Cafe 30A(.7) at 0.3 Miles Nearest Beach : Seagrove Beach at 0.22 Miles Nearest Point of Interest : Publix Nearest Point of Interest : Seagrove Market Nearest Point of Interest : Seaside Nearest Point of Interest : Red Bar - Grayton Beach Nearest Point of Interest : Rosemary Beach Nearest Point of Interest : Old Florida Fishouse Nearest Point of Interest : Fresh & Salt Water - Great Skinboarding!

There are also 15 nearby fresh water coastal dune lakes including two State Parks 5 and 10 min away. Close to so much yet still a very private beach and away from the commercial beaches.
