Gulf Place Cabanas condo description

Situated in Gulf Place, just a hop, skip, and a jump away from the serene sands and crystal clear waters of the Emerald Coast, The Break-Away has everything you need for a relaxing coastal break.

This well appointed ground floor condo sleeps four and comes equipped with all toiletries and beach equipment. It is just a few minutes walk from the shops, bars, and restaurants of Gulf Place and features convenient street-side parking.

There is a heated swimming pool and hot tub literally steps from the condo and a well-maintained lawn that is a great place for kids to play. The jewel in the crown, Santa Rosa beach, is just a short stroll away.

Painted in relaxing blues and greens with bursts of accent color, this newly renovated condo combines quirky flea market finds and stylish designer flourishes to bring the peace and serenity of the ocean inside. Light and airy, it opens out onto a small patio with table and chairs where you can sit back, unwind, and enjoy a drink as you take in the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico.

With a luxurious king-size bed (which one guest described as 'more comfortable than any bed you will ever find in a hotel') and two cozy bunks suitable for both adults and children, all guests can be assured of waking up refreshed each morning.

The condo is located right on the 30A coastal highway, making it an ideal base from which to explore the beautiful Emerald Coast. The charming communities of Watercolor, Seaside, and Rosemary Beach are all within easy driving distance. If you are feeling a little more energetic, bicycles can be hired to cycle the same route.

At night, there are high quality seafood, Italian, and pizza restaurants within Gulf Place and other popular options just a short drive away. If you want to take advantage of the fully-equipped kitchen; the nearby Shrimper's Seafood Market is a great place to pick up fresh seafood, including delicious, locally-caught shrimp and blue crab.

The owner lives nearby and is always on hand to answer any questions you might have about the condo or local attractions.

If you want a laid back vacation, free from stress or worries, The Break-Away is the ideal place for you.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About the owner: My native state is Texas, but I have also lived in and enjoyed New Mexico and Oklahoma. I am a former elementary school teacher with a degree from The University of Texas at Austin. Because I love it so much, I have relocated to Santa Rosa Beach and now live here full time!

                  Why the Owner Chose Gulf Place Cabanas:
                  I have chosen Gulf Place Cabanas #103 because of its close proximity to the shops, restaurants, beach, and the pool. Miss Lucille's is a quick 1-2 min. walk for a vanilla latte, and the heated pool is right outside the back patio. The convenience and central location sold me!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  Gulf Place caught my eye because it is very well maintained, has planned activities on the premises, is away from the congestion of Destin, but is only a short drive if a person wants more to do. In addition, I love being able to just walk across the street to reach the beach and then the convenience of rinsing off my feet at the outdoor showers provided by Gulf Place when I return!
