There is truly no place like this anywhere on the Emerald Coast. We are in the Panhandle of Florida, next door to Rosemary Beach and 8 miles from famous Seaside. Stay for a week and get your 7th night FREE! Anna's Veranda is a beautifully renovated 100+-year-old, Victorian home with grand upper and lower wrap-around porches that offer rare unobstructed views of the Gulf of Mexico and the secluded dunes of the 19-acre Inlet Beach Dune Preserve. There are no hotels, condos or other homes to block your view. Located in a quiet neighborhood on a very private street. Kids can ride bikes safely and play in our big backyard. We have a beautiful pool with a brick patio/deck and a romantic pergola. The pergola is constructed using the original 100+year-old round columns that were on the veranda of the original porch. They are beautiful. Pictures to come.
Inside the house our huge rooms have original antique heart pine floors, 11-foot ceilings, crown molding, original cast-iron fireplace grates, chandeliers and ceiling fans throughout. The new gourmet kitchen has three sinks and is large enough for several chefs to create memorable meals. The large open dining room in the center of the house seats 12 to 14. The front parlor and back parlor both have a TV, VCR/DVD, and queen sofa sleepers. Downstairs the full bath has a beautifully tiled shower. There is a screened-in porch just off the back parlor and a family size outdoor h/c shower. The back yard is large enough for a volleyball or kickball game or for tables and chairs for your occasion. Bring your laptop, WE HAVE WI-FI INTERNET ACCESS throughout the house.
Upstairs all bedrooms have a breathtaking view of the gulf! The Master has a king-size cast-iron bed and a bath with unique double vessel sinks, a shower and claw-foot tub. Curl up in the window seat of the second bedroom that has a queen-size bed and opens onto the wraparound porch. There are two cast-iron queen-size beds in the large sunny third bedroom. The fourth bedroom opens onto the upper deck, has a queen sofa sleeper, a full size bed and a full bath. We have lush linens and towels cleaned with environmentally friendly products.
The quiet beach is steps away, just over the dunes and is never crowded. Only a one-minute walk to the beach access. The Emerald Coast is known for its sugar-white sand and turquoise water. There are lifeguards at our beach all spring, summer and fall. The boardwalk is ADA approved (no steps) and is a one-minute walk from our front door. Shopping and great restaurants are close by. Publix grocery and Winn Dixie are only 3 miles away. The new Pier Park is 5 miles away with shops (Target, Dillard's, Marshall's, Wal-mart, Ross, Bed, Bath & Beyond, etc.) movie theaters and restaurants including Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville, Five Guys Burgers, Panera Bread, Red Robin Diner, Brick Oven Pizza, Old Heidelberg House and more. Great shopping at Silver Sands Outlet Mall near Destin is only 20 min away. There are 26 miles of bike path along scenic 30-A. We can have rental bikes delivered to you and waiting when you arrive!

About the owner: Anna is an artist and yoga teacher. She works in encaustics, pastels and oils. Her work is abstract in nature and influenced by the textures and colors at the ocean and seaside. Dan is a pediatrician in an Emergency Room (we hope you never have to see him at work!). We worked together to pick all the colors and furniture in the house. We never knew we would work together so well as on this project! We both grew up with and loved Victorian architecture. Dan in New York and Anna in Charleston, SC.
Why the Owner Chose Inlet Beach: We fell in love with the charm of this house the moment we walked in. It needed lots of TLC to restore! It was an amazing adventure to bring this beautiful Grand Lady back to her shining glory. She is truly a gem on the Emerald Coast. There are NO other Victorian homes on the beach in the Panhandle of Florida. We feel so lucky to have picked this spot as the beach still has dunes and is peaceful and quiet. We love weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and sharing our house with people who love it! We hope you will come and add your love to the house, too.
The Unique Benefits at this House: You will step back in time with the beautiful charm of this Victorian home. You will not sacrifice amenities as everything in the house has been lovingly restored and updated. The wrap around porches, upper and lower, are the place to be at sunrise and sunset. There is always a breeze! The bedrooms are huge! The kitchen is large enough for several cooks to create memorable meals for large groups (3 sinks!). There are two living room areas (parlors) for separate TV viewing. The entire downstairs area is open, light and airy for communal gathering. We are right across a quiet street from a dune preserve; one of the few places left in Florida with dunes. There are lifeguards at our public beach all summer. There is nesting endangered Sea Turtle watching in summer, too. The neighborhood is quiet and safe enough for kids to play outside. Our backyard is big enough for any outdoor gathering and the pool is awesome. The deck area is 13'x35'. The main yard is 48' x 30'.
