Private Homes house description

This awesome home comfortably sleeps 14-16 people in a truly fabulous location on the beach side of 30A.

This is a quiet residential neighborhood location without the crowds from condo’s or high density locations such as Seaside or Destin, but the location is also close enough to them that you can get there easily. When you are not at the beach, you can relax in the beautiful large landscaped yard that contains a large 32'X16' swimming pool that is spacious enough for large family gatherings. Walk across the street to the fresh seafood market and grill your dinner on the gas grill provided for your use.

                          Year Purchased: 2009

                          About the owner: Steve & Shirley Linahan live in Santa Rosa Beach, FL where we manage and operate several businesses. My wife and I are both licensed Florida Realtors, operate a Margarita Machine rental franchise, Margarita Man Emerald Coast and consult in global supply chain management, manufacturing operations and global logistics for Hi-Tech electronics companies.

                          Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                          Because we fell in love with the white sand beaches of the Emerald Coast of Florida. We felt this home was perfect to allow us to share it with our family and all the new friends we meet each year.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          We are continually updating and upgrading our home which faces the beach and is just a short stroll on a sidewalk. We always love to talk about the beach and the 30A area, give Shirley or I a call...512-923-5400.
