Property description

Island Girl, sister home to Island Time at Sunrise, is a charming, newly remodeled cottage next door to Sunrise Beach. Lush green wetlands border the home's east side, providing views of nature and the gulf beyond. Private boardwalk to beach access and next door to Highland House, private events facility. Home has covered wrap deck on main level and private deck upstairs off master bedroom. Interior newly remodeled throughout including hardwood floors, granite counter tops, glass back splash, new vanities, upgraded kitchen cabinets, wood ceilings, Florida trim, and much more. Living room, dining, kitchen with breakfast bar, bedroom with queen bed, bath and laundry on main level. Master bedroom with king bed and private bath, bedroom with two sets of bunk beds and its own private bath on the second level. Third level bedroom provides queen bed and private bath. Sleeps as many as 12, and 13 if using the portable twin. Dining for 10. Located on a private street surrounded by grand scale properties; next door to Sunrise Beach. Street leads to public beach access that is basically private; gets very little use by public at large. Island Girl's private boardwalk ties into to the public boardwalk a short distance prior to reaching the beach. Wonderful location that is within walking distance to Gulf Place and restaurants such as Goatfeathers, La Playa, Tango and Local Catch.

Car: Recommended

Beach communities along a 26 mile area of Highway 30A that are collectively referred to as 30A. Each community has its own personality; includes Seaside, Grayton Beach, Sea grove, Watercolor, Water sould, Rosemary Beach, and Santa Rosa Beach. The area in general is more laid back, less congestive, with no high rises or franchised restaurants. Beaches sport white sand; almost like powdered sugar. Santa Rosa Beach was listed by Yahoo Travel a few years ago as being a top 10 beach. Restaurants are privately owned with many boasting notable chefs.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Fred and I have a real estate company in our hometown of Jonesboro, AR. We have always invested in rental property in Jonesboro, yet always dreamed of investing in the 30A area one day. We now own and manage four properties that are located within a two block area of Santa Rosa Beach.

Why the Owner Chose Sunrise Beach:
Our family has enjoyed vacationing in the 30A area over the past 40 years and always looked forward to return visits. We rented the beach cottage original to the site of Sunrise Beach and Shell Seekers Cove (no longer standing) on several occasions years ago. And since Sunrise Beach was developed, we have rented there as well. We always thought it would have been special to own that old-style Florida bungalow and remember vividly the wonderful times spent there. Its spirit is still much alive to us to this day. So when we decided to purchase a property of our own, we were excited to locate a property within yards of the home we once desired. That home is now Island Time in Sunrise Beach. Then two years later we discovered what has since become our Island Girl. Her street is possibly the very drive that led to the original bungalow. We spent a year remodeling the home and installing the pool and decking to make her special. We wanted to continue the tradition of providing a place where guests could store their own memories on these special grounds.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
I love this particular street of homes; tucked away and yet so close to the beach. I love walking on the private boardwalk and sitting on the steps to the beach watching the sunset, the stars at night and listening to the surf. I could sit there for hours! I also enjoy being able to walk to good restaurants at night. And the decks, pool and oversize decking offer many hours of outdoor enjoyment. But the beach is the special attraction! Walking in the white sand is like walking in powdered sugar. It is amazing!! But then there is the surf!!!!
