Abacos at Santa Rosa condo description


Most visitors to our area agree that the South Walton County Scenic Highway 30-A area is the perfect vacation destination - white sandy beaches, crystal clear water, world class retail and outlet store shopping, challenging golf courses, funky art galleries, music venues, fishing, free parks and beaches, water parks, and many restaurants to suit all budgets and palates. We are so proud that Yahoo Travel ranked Santa Rosa Beach as one of the Top 10 Best Beach Destinations 2011.... in the world!! We are ranked with Maui, Bali, New Zealand and others around the world. 2013 Florida Travel & Life recently announced that 30A was the 'Pearl of the Panhandle' with southern hospitality in a trendy setting.

Pampering starts on the the ground floor of Abacos with a professional nail salon, & small gift shop to meet some of your daily wants & needs. Very close to the west are the trendy restaurants, a wine bar, pizza, coffee house, ice cream parlor, pharmacy, shopping, boutiques, & galleries.

KB is a two-story condominium with an interior stairwell and outside entrance doors and balconies on both floors. The lower level contains three (3) smartly furnished bedrooms (King, Queen and Twins) and two bathrooms (master and hall). No need to drag suitcases up & down stairs, take building elevator to 2nd floor. The upper level (3rd floor and main entrance with a key pad) features stone tile floors, a spacious living area, a guest bathroom, separate dining room, a magnificent kitchen with granite counters, a breakfast bar and stainless appliances. We furnished KB to be an elegant but comfortable retreat from home.

KB has beautiful granite counter tops in the kitchen and bathrooms. Cable TV/DVD is provided in every bedroom and the living room has a 42' flat screen.. FREE WIRELESS HIGH SPEED INTERNET service is also provided. There is parking for your car with overflow parking available. Before you arrive you will receive your own number for the key pad on the 3rd floor. No keys to lose! This number is changed with each new guest. An elevator and luggage cart is available for your use. Our condo is directly across the street from a public beach access complete with picnic area, lookout tower, restrooms and outdoor shower.

Why not vacation in a spacious condominium rather than a hotel room or studio? We rent out unit without any linen charges. Just add $150 for cleaning & $65 to cover our damages waiver/registration fee and 12% sales tax for the State of Florida. That's it! A local person will be available should you need assistance.

My wife and I are proud of our beach getaway. KB is new, clean, luxurious and comfortable and so convenient to the beach, shopping, golf, deep sea fishing and all the other things that you escape to the beach to enjoy. We will be happy to have you as our guest.

As far as shopping goes, KB is only 5 miles west of the quaint shops at Seaside (where the movie Truman Story was filmed) and Watercolor. We are 6 miles east of Sandestin, the Silver Sands outlet mall and the new world class Grand Boulevard shopping district. Pier Park shopping mall is 20 miles to the east. Destin Commons upscale shopping is 15 miles to the west. Needless to say, there are hundreds of other shopping opportunities-from funky artist shops to the finest clothing and home furnishings stores. You will have a tough time covering all the bases, but have fun trying.

Check out the 30-A app & download it to your i-phone or check out the web site. It has great information on events, music venues, dining and who was recently spotted in the area.

We are happy to give you names of nearby bike rentals and beach chair rentals if you are interested.

Feel free to call me directly (Carey Jury) with any questions you may have (including rate charges) or send me an email by responding to this VRBO web site. Thanks.

Put on your flip flops and get ready for some fun at the most beautiful beach!

Come stay with us and make lasting memories!!! You may never never go back to 'the real' world.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: We have lived in Des Moines, Iowa most of our lives. years ago a job transfer took us to Sydney, Australia where we lived on the harbour in a condo and spent many weekends at the beach. We could've stayed there forever but it was so far away from family. We have two children, five wonderful grandchildren. We are retired. We love the beach, walking, biking, good restaurants, art, music and shopping. Well, at least Ann enjoys the shopping. We have been spending part of our winters in Florida for the last four years and discovered the Santa Rosa Beach a few years ago. We agree with Yahoo Travel, this is one of the Top 10 Best Beach Destinations in the world!

                  Why the Owner Chose Abacos at Santa Rosa:
                  Santa Rosa Beach is relaxed & secluded beach get-away with no high rise condos. Having lived in other parts of the world and traveled extensively outside of the U.S. we found the Santa Rosa Beach area to be one of the most spectacular in the world. The clear emerald colored water and the pure white sand is simply unsurpassed. The area is quiet yet bustling with world class restaurants, quaint art shops and many activities during the day or night. We can do as much as we want or just spend the day relaxing with the spectacular Gulf views. We just love this location, we are close to everything we've ever dreamed about! If you like beautiful emerald water, beautiful white sand, a nice spacious condo with a view, good food, quiet, laid back atmosphere, golf, fishing, art and music. This is for you........and me!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  We love sipping coffee or wine at the kitchen table ejoying views of the Gulf water. We enjoy going just a few steps to the beach to watch the dolphins, take in the sunset and walking as the waves splash at our feet. Also, a few steps away is the 20 mile walking/biking path. In addition, we can go to the back side of our property, sit on 1 of three decks that overlook a nicely appointed pool that we often have to ourselves. The pool is very private, quiet, surrounded by palm trees and lush vegetation. The pool also has restrooms and an outdoor shower. Directly across the street we enjoy walking over to Gulf Place for coffee, cinnamon rolls or ice cream at Miss Lucille's with seating on the patio and views of the Gulf. We enjoy the yummy Sunday brunch at Fire (it has a new location in Gulf Place) which has outdoor seating available. A new restaurant, La Playa, (in place of Smiling Fish Cafe & Naked Grape) will be coming Spring 2013. It will have outdoor seating and a full service bar. Also located at Gulf Place, within a short walk is Amoire Pizza. After coffee, ice cream, brunch or pizza, shop the funky art shacks, retail women's shops, bike/kayak rental shop, pharmacy or play soccer in the green open space. Between the coffee, different meal options, shops, beach access, bike rental and pool you don't even have to get in the car! A convenience store/gas station is an easy 1/2 mile walk. The outdoor common area of our condo has great lighting for your added security. We believe it has it GREAT location!
