(Calendar is up to date so please consult it for availability. Please submit your inquiries through this site)

Zenful Villa is a newly renovated 3-story luxury vacation home, the complex property is located on the Gulf and has a private pool and private beach access. The property has 2 buildings with only 18 units. Zenful Villa sits behind the private pool and also has a view of the Gulf. It features 2 King bedrooms and a loft with 2 twin beds, 2 1/2 baths, 2 balconies overlooking the pool and Gulf, a very modern and completely stocked kitchen and a living area with a surround A/V system and modern furnishings.

This property is not for everyone, it is not a party place and is not child friendly (12 or older only - infants under 1 are permitted.)

Located between Destin and Panama City in the middle of the best area along renowned Scenic Hwy 30A. Known for the best beaches in the country, this area also offers a bike path all along the Hwy dotted with beach villages, great shopping and wonderful dining.

We have taken great pride in supplying the best amenities, using modern, stylish and comfortable finishes throughout the space which are not your typical pink flamingos and bold patterns designed to hide dirt and stains but to create a very luxurious 'Zenful' environment for the guests in our home.

The main floor includes the Entertainment Area, the Kitchen, Dining room, the Touch-Down Station, Living room, Zen-Chair, entry hall and 1/2 bath.

The Kitchen is brand new, finished with dark wood cabinets, granite counters, stack-stone back splash, a farm sink, cabinet lighting, ice machine, plenty of storage with a lit pantry that is ready for everything you need to bring. It is stocked with matching dinnerware, serving ware, cookware and a full compliment of dishes and glasses. The large bar provides plenty of counter space and room for 4.

The Dining room seats 6 and features 'The Farm Table'. Named this as part of the motif, also because it is actually made from reclaimed barn wood!

The 'Touch-Down' area is a separate desk area to set up your office, charge all of your electronics and keep in touch with high speed WiFi.

The living room has a great combination of a leather sectional and soft chairs (Check out 'The Zen Chair') to enjoy the large flat screen, internet ready Blue Ray, and surround sound system.

The King Master, King Zen & 2 Twin Bedrooms: Unlike many vacation homes with rock hard beds and cheap linens, we have supplied comfortable mattresses and high quality comforters, sheets (400 tc) and pillows.

The Master Suite has it's own balcony overlooking the pool and the Gulf. It features a solid wood Sleigh bed with a Serta Perfect sleeper mattress. The matching Armior contains a large TV and DVD player. There is a powder room and separate bath area.

The 'Zen Room' features a King Platform bed with the same high quality linens, an adjoining bath and TV with DVD player.

The loft has 2 twin-size beds with light weight down comforters and it's own TV/DVD player.

There are plenty of wash linens supplied that are all matching, fresh and clean stacked in the full sized laundry area for your use. We supply a load of detergent if you need to wash anything and there is an extra blanket if you need it.

We use this property as our home and take pride in having a comfortable oasis with all the creature comforts we enjoy. We have put allot of effort into making it nice and are proud to share it with you.

It is neat, clean, well organized, has matching supplies and is done in a sophisticated decor. (no teal walls with pink flamingos!) Everything works and is in good repair.

It Is not a Party Place and it is not suitable for children. (Minimum age limit of 12, infants under 1 year are permitted) We have designed the home for adults who enjoy and appreciate these amenities and understand that being required to maintain them also means they will be there when they come back.

Please check out the calendar for availability as we keep it up to date.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to say I am so grateful to have discovered your new place. Although I do not know the two of you, I am so happy for you both! We absolutely loved your place and enjoyed staying there so much. You both did a beautiful job and the kitchen was a dream. The location was perfect and it was just so easy and convenient. Thank you again so much. I can't wait to return. I will see you hopefully next summer. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. It was a beautiful place to celebrate my daughters 25th birthday. Here's to a very happy life to you two!

Wonderful Location Even More Wonderful Condo

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from our vacation. We stayed at Zenful Villa and cannot begin to say how amazing this condo is. Everything was found to be as nice if not nicer than expected. The condo is very clean and so beautifully decorated (I was so envious). It is very organized and is easy to make yourself at home. It is located in an area that makes everything very convenient. The owner has even been so kind as to build a renter's guide which we found helpful (other owners should take note). The private beach access is wonderful as is the pool and the view. We absolutely loved staying at Zenful Villa and plan to return next year. P.S. as for our favorite restaurant it has to be Goatfeathers, it's just down 30A to the east, the food is unbelievable and the price is awesome.

Renters Beware!

  • 1 of 5
Renters Beware! We had an issue with the property smelling of cigarette smoke. We rented this property, because it was marketed as non-smoking and a low-allergen environment and we have someone with asthma in our travel party. The owner sent his cleaning team over to determine if our claims were true. She agreed that the property did have a significant cigarette smell and that it would not be safe for someone with asthma to stay there. It was 4th of July week and Seagrove was packed, so frantically looked for new place to stay that would be healthy for our party. When we found a new smoke-free rental, we felt it best to vacate the Zenful property immediately for the health and well-being of our family. The Zenful owner was not willing to understand the health concerns for our family and would not give us any of our money back, even though his property was marketed as non-smoking. We understand that the owner cannot prevent other parties from smoking in his property; however, as an owner it would be a good business practice to make things right when his property is not as marketed. The bottom line is that there are a lot of properties in Seagrove with owners who are willing to stand by their marketing and make things right, so do not hassle with this one!

What if you threw a hurricane and nobody came?

My compliments to the designer or builder of this unit. It is very nice and modern, but more importantly comfortable and clean. We spent time here being told by the TV Karen was going to blow us or wash us away. To the contrary, the weather was mostly perfect. We rode bikes to dinner of breakfast (Great Southern, Red Bar, and Bud & Alley were perfect), which is easy since there is a bike rental place across the road on the land side.

Quality!

  • 5 of 5
Great experience from the onset! From the beginning we had nothing but great customer service. I love dealing directly with the owners, especially when they go out of their way to make sure the customer is well taken care of. When we walked into the villa, we ALL said "wow!" at the same time. The place was well stocked and decorated very nicely. The kitchen made me feel so gourmet! And yes... the beds... very comfortable! They went all out on the mattresses and linens. They thought of all the little things too; like the keyless entry, extra beach towels, a great surround sound system, a starter supply of soaps and toilet paper, and all updated and modern electronics and appliances! There was no skimping at the Zenful Villa!

Beautiful Villa and Beach

  • 5 of 5
Zenful Villa certainly lived up to and exceeded our expectations! When we first arrived, we very impressed at not only the beauty of this condo, but how immaculate everything was. I have been visiting the beach every year of my life and I must admit, this condo is the best decorated, most organized, and clean unit yet! The beautifully organized kitchen is well-equipped and very functional. The living area has lovely comfortable furniture. I enjoyed having a cup of coffee each morning in the "Zen Chair" and gazing at the gulf. Each bedroom has extremely comfortable bedding. The laundry area is convenient to the bedrooms as well. We enjoyed time on the two balconies also.

When we stepped onto the beautiful white sand, my teenage daughter commented that is was the softest sand she had ever felt. We spent time on the beach everyday of our trip and it was perfect. No elevators or long boardwalks, just out the front door and in a few steps, the beautiful gulf! There is also beach service offering chairs and an umbrella, which is nice.

In addition to the beach, we loved riding bikes. We rented from Butterfly Bike Rentals located conveniently across the street. This was a good experience as the staff was accommodating and friendly. My husband and I rode for miles and our teenager and her friend enjoyed the short bike ride to Seaside. There is so much to do there and it's closer than I had imagined. A few restaurants we enjoyed were Flip Flops and Bruno's Pizza. We also rode over to Pier Park one evening which is only a 15 minute drive and ate at The Back Porch...it's worth the drive.

Seagrove Beach is beautiful and not commercialized. It's quiet and peaceful! However, you are close to about anything that you might want to do. It's the best of both worlds.

Finally, David, the owner, went above and beyond to ensure everything was perfect for our stay. I have never had a more positive customer service experience. Every imaginable detail was taken care of. I would highly recommend Zenful Villa to a friend or relative. I hope to return next year!

Owner's Response: WOW! This makes us so happy to hear that you had such a great time and enjoyed SeaGrove Beach and Zenful Villa.

I am glad you mentioned the biking, that has become such a popular thing to do. I know we park the car and leave it for the week because everything is so close by and riding your bike is just so much more fun!

Come back any time, and thank you for the review!!

Just perfect.

Everything about the stay at Zenful Villa was great! It was so refreshing to spend the week in a well appointed property that didn't feature wicker furniture and seashells and a TV from the 90s.

Location

From the Owner

Zenful Villa is not your average condo. It spans over 3 stories and has unique architecture that you do not find in the typical 'box' condo. With that in mind, I purchased this property and personally remodeled it, creating A Modern Approach to an Old World Villa.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : VPS at 28 Miles Nearest Beach : Seagrove at 10 Metres Car: not necessary

Zenful Villa is located between Destin and Panama City, right in the middle of the most picturesque and entertaining portion of Scenic Hwy 30A. Known for some of the most beautiful beaches in the country, it now also has very unique dining and entertaining experiences, ranging from local seafood shacks to high-end international culinary delights, even outdoor music, art shows and open theater!

The bike path runs all along the coast dotted with beach villages, rare coastal dune lakes, upscale resorts, great shopping and wonderful dining.

You can find a great rustic beach bar and some of the best pizza anywhere, or romantic dining at one of the world-class restaurants nearby. A few of the communities offer outdoor movies, craft and art-shows and musical entertainment.

Seagrove Beach is just a short bike ride and a five minute ride to Rosemary Beach, Alys Beach, Grayton Beach and Watercolor Beach.
