Gulfview Heights house description

We love our gulf view home and know you will too! The house is ideally located in the heart of prestigious Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, south of Scenic 30-A. Enjoy a relaxing and memorable family vacation in our spacious two bedroom, two bathroom house with private heated pool. The house sleeps 6 comfortably and is a leisurely two minute stroll from the driveway located at the northeast corner of Gulfview Heights and Betty St. to the dune walk over. We are also adjacent to the beautiful Draper Lake making this a perfect getaway for nature lovers. Our home away from home offers great location and value, peaceful surroundings, scenic beauty and is close to all amenities.

Santa Rosa Beach is a quiet community nestled beside the Gulf of Mexico. Located approximately 15 miles east of Destin, FL, Santa Rosa Beach offers easy access to shopping, restaurants, deep-sea fishing, family friendly activities, golf courses and airports. Natural beauty abounds along scenic 30-A with miles of walking and biking trails, nature preserves, wildlife, Dune Lakes, sugary white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters.

Home and Furnishings

Our home is constructed on raised pilings to provide partial views of the Gulf from the large covered wraparound porch. The cottage decor is comfortable and includes Italian porcelain tile floors, crown molding, cherry cabinets, Corian kitchen counter tops, cultured marble in the bathrooms, new premium broadloom, new Sealy Posturepedic Plush matresses, new Maytag stainless steel kitchen appliances and new GE washer and dryer. Relax and enjoy the gulf breeze on the covered deck complete with chairs, tables, ceiling fans and natural gas Broilmaster Premium Grill.

Our cottage is fully furnished and equipped with all the comforts of home. Our home is well maintained and improvements are made each year for your comfort. Each bedroom has a wrought iron headboard and bench. The master bedroom has a king size bed and the guest room has a queen size bed. Each bedroom includes a 20' television with DVD player, portable radio with CD player and alarm clock. Hair dryers are provided and all linens except beach towels are included. The living room includes a full size sectional sleeper sofa, a new 42' LED HDTV with a Smart Wi-Fi built in Bluray player (cd up conversion) and a stereo system with radio and CD player. The kitchen is fully equipped with brand new stainless steel refrigerator/ice maker, self-cleaning range, dishwasher and microwave, toaster, coffee maker, blender, dishes, utensils, glassware and tv. Other amenities include ceiling fans, brand new washer/dryer, iron/ironing board, gas grill, beach/pool toys/floats, cards/games, a large selection of movies, 6 beach chairs and a beach umbrella. Wireless high speed internet is complimentary.


Private Pool

Ours is a large corner lot (1/3 acre) which includes a lush lawn with irrigation system, natural vegetation and a sparkling 13' by 26' private heated pool for cooling off and relaxing. Outdoor furniture, floats and pool toys are included; the pool is not shared with any other houses.

Beach Access

Our beach house is on the northeast corner of Gulfview Heights Street and Betty Street, facing the Gulf. It is a short two minute walk form the house to the Gulfview Heights beach access (see aerial photo), no traffic or busy roads to cross. Restrooms, outdoor showers, covered picnic pavilion and BBQ grill are available for your convenience. The house includes 4 light-weight aluminum beach chairs and a beach umbrella for your use. We do not provide beach towels.

Dune Lakes/Draper Lake

Draper Lake is located at the end of Betty St. and offers a unique experience with its diverse ecosystem.

Nearby Activities

Bring your bikes or rent them nearby and explore the 20-mile-long bike/walking trail, nature preserves and 11 dune lakes. Access to the trail is just steps from the house and runs the entire length of Scenic 30-A.
