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; NEW 50' HD flat screen and sound bar with Direct TV 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 high speed 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 Preston Riner

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.

Preston Riner purchased this condo in 2005

Why Preston Riner chose South Walton

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.

What makes this condo unique

Top 10 things we most enjoy at Sea View Penthouse:

10) Takes just a few minutes to walk to a private beach via our dedicated walkway

9) Hearing the sound of the waves at night from the patio when the surf is up

8) Eating on the balcony with a ocean view while keeping an eye on the kids in the pool

7) Movies, sports and music on the 50' HD TV!

6) Choosing between a 10 minute bike ride to Seaside or a closer walk to Seagrove Beach

5) Entertaining & family dinners for 12+ people and having everything a chef could ask for in the kitchen

4) 15 minutes from a Greg Norman golf course and a Pete Dye course

3) Minutes from the best fine dining and barefoot dining around

2) Going back and forth from beach to an incredible pool; perfect for laps

1) Sleeping on a cloud in heaven - the master king size bed with a 15' pillowtop mattress is to 'die for'

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

Great condo -- wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived, we knew that we were at a perfect place to relax, unwind, and enjoy. The condo was stylishly furnished, yet comfortable at the same time. The bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious, the beds were great, and there were plenty of linens. The master bath with jetted tub and the walk-in closet in the master suite were a plus. The kitchen was open concept with a huge island that had a nice overhang for seating. There were lots of dishes, glasses, utensils, cutlery, pots and pans, serving trays, and just about every kind of kitchen gadget you could imagine. Very well stocked. The dining room table was large enough to accommodate 8 or more people. The owner also included beach towels which came in handy at the huge pool at the complex and at the beach. There were also some beach toys, etc., in the closet for our use. There was a large flat screen TV in the living room, as well as flat screen TVs in every bedroom (with Direct TV service). We've stayed in other units in this same complex, but this unit is the one with the best view of the ocean. We enjoyed hanging out on our balcony to have our coffee or beverage. In the evenings, we could sit and look at the stars and listen to the waves. Very relaxing. Even though this is not an ocean-front condo, it is a very short walk on the private path to the beach. We incurred no problems getting to and from the beautiful beach each day. The condo was very clean and all appliances worked like a charm. The complex grounds and pool are very well maintained. Besides going to the beach, we could walk right outside the back of the condo parking lot into a Florida state park which had lots and lots of walking paths to explore. The pines, magnolias, saw palmettos, and other trees and plants were something to behold. We definitely recommend this condo and all it has to offer. Goatfeathers is the place we go to buy fresh shrimp and have them steamed. Perfect Pig is just a few steps from the complex and has great food. We enjoy Happy Hour at The Great Southern in the town plaza at Seaside. The fresh oysters on the half shell are great. They also have many other succulent menu items. For sure, try their smoked gouda grits. Bud & Alley's in Seaside is a wonderful place to have a nice meal/drinks and watch the sunset view. Also, drive west on 30a and try Stinky's, the Vue and Chanticleer's. So many great places, can't begin to mention them all. Just an awesome vacation spot and CONDO!

High quality

  • 4 of 5

The condo interior was just as described and pictured. The bedrooms were comfortable and spacious. The pool was large and perfect temperature though a bit cool with the shade from the trees surrounding it. The walk to the beach was longer than I anticipated and the condo is across 30a. The noise from the passing motorist made the balcony less peaceful in the mornings but the balcony itself was nice and had a telescopic view of the distant ocean. The Internet was a bit spotty two times: Yvonne was very responsive. The condo was not cleaned when we arrived for check-in. After speaking with Yvonne she quickly sent over a kind cleaning lady. We were able to check-in around 8pm. This was not ideal but Yvonne was efficient and kind handling this issue. Overall we had a good stay.

While in sea grove we biked to donut hut for breakfast. We also enjoyed perfect pig, George's, and great southern. Fresh lobster tail from goat feathers topped off a week of delicious food. We rented bikes from big fish with kid trailer which worked out well.

Owner's Response: Jennifer, Thank you for taking the time to offer a detailed review complete with recommended nearby dining; that's so helpful for future guests! I again offer a 'hearty' and most sincere apology for the condo not being ready when you arrived. I was glad to hear you were able to go to beach while it was cleaned. It's not what you or anyone should expect and unfortunate that you experienced our very first housekeeping mishap in 10 years! Our new housekeeper mixed up your arrival date and she too felt horrible and even offered to pay the compensation that we extended for your inconvenience of waiting 2 1/2 hours. The internet was indeed a provider issue which fortunately doesn't happen frequently in the area; and we appreciated your patience with this as well as your helpfulness with testing the router. Thank you. (We intentionally purchase the higher speed service.) I'm grateful you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back again. Yvonne PS: my favorite time on the balcony which is the most peaceful is later in the evening..you can even hear the waves when they are up!

Beautiful Condo + great location!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully decorated condo located on the top floor with pool view. We really enjoyed spending time in the condo, swimming in the lap pool, morning and evening walks on the beach (easily accessible via private beach gate access) and the convenience of being close to dining and shopping in Seagrove, Seaside, Ally's and Rosemary Beach.

The condo was stocked with everything needed for a relaxing stay and the owner, Yvonne even provided a detailed welcome email prior to arrival which included local weather link, activities, as well as dining and shopping recommendations.

We had a wonderful time. Highly recommend!
