Property description

Turtle Beach, this 4 bedroom, 3 bath, spacious 2200 square foot condo directly on the Gulf, and all on one level, has that 'wow factor' many vacationers look for. Spectacular views from the open plan living room with electric fireplace, dining area and kitchen, as well as from the master bedroom and of course from the 42 foot-long balcony, which you can access from either the living/dining room or the master bedroom. The other three east and west-facing bedrooms also have partial Gulf views. The unit was fully repainted and newly refurbished in spring 2012 and partially repainted again in February 2015 as a result of exterior renovations. Further upgrades finished as of early January 2015: new kitchen cabinets, new Black Mountain granite countertops, farmhouse sink; new Mitchell Gold sectional sofa and two glider/swivel armchairs in living room, new sisal rugs for dining and living rooms. Also, in February 2015 new dry bar installed in living room, with Black Mountain granite, including dual-zone beverage center for white wine and beer/soft drinks.

This Wi-fi included unit includes a 55-inch Samsung flat screen TV, DVR, plus Blu-Ray DVD in the living room, 40-inch Samsung and Blu-Ray in the master bedroom, a 32-inch Samsung and Blu-Ray in the twin-bedded children's room, and a 40-inch Samsung and Xbox 360 Kinect (make sure to bring your games!) in the fourth bedroom with twin daybed and trundle, which also serves as a game room. Luxuriate on your king-size Westin Heavenly Bed in the master bedroom, or the Stearns & Foster queen-size bed in the second bedroom, which is set apart from the rest of the condo. Two new Simmons Beautyrest Recharge Pillowtop beds in twin bedroom as of January 2015. The master bath has a large walk-in shower, jacuzzi and double vanities. The bath adjacent to the Queen bedroom has a curved shower rod for extra space, and the Jack-n-Jill third bathroom with double vanities links the twin-bedded (kids') room and the fourth bedroom/game room.

The kitchen includes all you need for dining in or just taking quick meals, with a double-door fridge with ice maker, Electrolux gas range (2014), new (2015) GE microwave, toaster oven and toaster, coffee maker, blender, dishwasher and large Kohler farmhouse sink, with ample stoneware and glasses for all friends and family. The dining table comfortably seats six, plus the adjoining kitchen island has three counter stools. Plus, if you've read this far, automatic BEACH SERVICE INCLUDED--up to six chairs and three umbrellas, for each day of your stay (not available Nov-Feb).

Turtle Beach consists of two Gulf-side buildings of three floor-through units each that sit atop a 35-foot bluff, thus affording breathtaking Gulf views, plus two other buildings of two units each, with the complex's swimming pool in the middle. Parking for you and your guests directly in front of the condo. It is conveniently located 1-1/2 miles east of Seaside and within easy walking distance of Cafe 30A, one of the best restaurants in the area, and The Perfect Pig, which opened in November 2012 to rave reviews. Perfect Pig is about to open (April) next door a gourmet burger and gelato shakes place called Preacher's Kitchen. Goatfeathers Seafood Market, Cafe 30-A and Cocoons are just down the street, as is the nearest bicycle rental shop. Crust Artisan Bakery, with the best breads in the area and a wonderful restaurant and pizza oven, is preparing to open a new outlet one block away, also in April.

So, location, location, location, plus views to die for. Private beach walkover, for your early morning walks along the beach, as far as the eye can see, late night strolls, or just to laze about. It's two flights down (and up) to the condo, or if you prefer and for those who may need to, you can take the elevator. Or you can just sit and gaze out at the endlessly changing sea and sky from the privacy of your covered balcony, letting your cares melt away with the setting sun. Life doesn't get much better than this.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: I had been looking, off and on, for my dream beach home for over 20 years. I started coming to 30A only at Thanksgiving 2010 and immediately fell in love with the emerald waters, sugary white sandy beaches, the amazing dunes and dune lakes, the great food and the wonderful charm and friendliness of the area. Since then I've learned of many great restaurants and lots of local activities that make this place feel special.

Why Turtle Beach:
This property is one of the few that offered unobstructed Gulf views both east and west as well as directly out to the Gulf below, an ocean-liner view. There is an indescribable feeling of happiness and serenity in this condo. The open floor plan contributes greatly to that feeling.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Proximity to beach, bikes, tennis, water activities, local restaurants, plus within 30 minutes of Destin/Sandestin to the west and Panama City to the east, offering all the shopping, dining and entertainment alternatives imaginable. This location in Seagrove Beach is close to Seaside and Rosemary Beach, yet distinctly apart and thus a much quieter, residential part of 30A, but one with amenities right close by.
