15-second walk to the pool. Our covered patio has more square footage than most first-floor Gulf Place Cabanas patios, and has much more room than the balconies. Walk 2 minutes to the beach !!...moreless
Instead of a balcony, we have an oversized patio. Very few Cabanas units have this oversized option. No stairs for us, and we are about the closest condo to the beach--saving valuable vacation time !...moreless
Covered patio, and we have a fan for the very hot days. Should be a good amount of beach toys for the kids (and maybe adults too) to borrow. Table & chairs for eating outdoors, as well. A great view ...moreless
We have a few things for the beach that we leave for our guests, including a several beach chairs and umbrellas. A bin outside has beach toys, noodles, etc. We also provide a beach cart--very handy!...moreless

Other than the beach, the Crown Jewel of Santa Rosa Beach, in our opinion, is the 18-mile Scenic 30-A Bike Trail (The Timpoochee Trail). You can get to the trail within 30 seconds from our first-floor Condo. Bring your own bicycles or rent them from Big Daddy's. They'll bring the bikes to you.
By the way, Santa Rosa Beach was ranked among the 10 Best Beach Destinations in the World.
For shopping, there are upscale shops close by in Gulf Place Town Center, and if you are into art, there is plenty at Gulf Place and a plethora along the famous Highway 30-A. For overall shopping, there are literally hundreds of stores from Destin to the end of 30-A.
Gulf Place Town Town Center is located in the same complex and has some nice shopping, spas, and restaurants. It even has a pharmacy. Check out the list of merchants at http://www.gulfplacefl.com/index.php/shop-dine .
Our property has 3 pools (coded), several grills, a nature trail, FREE laundry, plenty of green-space, tennis courts, hot tubs, shuffle board, and outdoor concrete picnic tables within the walking paths area.

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: My wife and I visited Santa Rosa Beach several times over the years, and when one of the units (that we had stayed in) of Gulf Place Cabanas became available, we decided to buy it. We wanted for our two young children (ages one and four) to have a place they could come for years, and remember fondly. We hope one day our condo becomes theirs. We had also vacationed in Destin and Panama City Beach in the past. While both are charming in their own right, we just like to get away from it all, and not be where the beaches were so crowded. Nevertheless, Destin and PCB are still just a short drive away from Santa Rosa Beach. They are nice spots to visit, just not as peaceful. There is PLENTY to do in Santa Rosa Beach and along Highway 30-A if you'd rather not 'do' Destin or PCB. You MUST visit Seaside and Rosemary Beach while you are here.
Why the Owner Chose Gulf Place Cabanas:
We bought this property in January of 2013. We are continuously making improvements and strive to be the BEST that the condo can be. We are continuously updating our list of recommendations that we send each of our renters. You will NOT regret staying here. You may even want to purchase a place here on the Emerald Coast, like we did !! After all, we too are former renters here at this exact Gulf Place Cabanas condo. Just in the past 2 1/2 years we've had guests from Alabama, Arkansas, Quebec-Canada, Saskatchewan-Canada, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, our home state of Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. We sincerely hope everyone enjoyed their stays on beautiful Highway 30A.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
* no more than probably 75 yards from the beach as the crow flies (140 yards walking-- it takes me around 155 steps from our oversized patio) * SAFE-- we have never heard of any major violence in the area that you may see in larger towns. We've never heard or know of any crimes whatsoever, for that matter. * the Greenway of Highway 30-A : you can bike the entire distance and really don't have to use your vehicle the entire week. I believe the Greenway is 17-miles long , not including the spur trails. If you do not have a bike, please take a stroll. Very relaxing and therapeutic. * plenty of restaurants nearby * grocery within 3 miles * 3 pools, 2 tennis courts, shuffle board, 2 hot tubs, restaurants, shopping, spa, grills, drug store all on the Gulf Place property. * keyless entry to our unit * FREE laundry * luggage carts to help arrival and departure * FREE parking. 10-second walk to our patio ! * public beach less than a mile, and two other public beaches within a mile * one of our owners- Carrie- loves consignment shopping and the Beaches of South Walton is a mecca for great deals * several state parks within the area * mountain biking in Point Washington State Forest * bike rentals, beach chair, and water sports rentals within Gulf Place Town Center * Royal Red Shrimp - get them at Publix (they will boil them for you) or at Shrimpers Seafood Market. If you've never tried Royal Reds, they are a MUST ! * Santa Rosa Beach was ranked among the 10 BEST BEACHES in the WORLD by Yahoo Travel. See the article at the following link : http://travel.yahoo.com/p-interests-37895743 *Highway 30-A now has it's own Smartphone App at http://30a.com/ * We strive to make our visitors' stay hassle free. We will answer any questions that you may have and send you recommendations to take some of the 'guess work' out of your vacation * We love to go Deep Sea Fishing on the party boats at Destin Harbor. We highly recommend Olin Marler's
