Looking for a home that will accommodate large or multiple families? La Vida del Sol is it!!!

Our beach house features two covered porches appointed with relaxing wicker rockers and wicker swing, a huge deck overlooking the private pool and terrace level lanai (covered) adjacent to the pool.

As you enter the driveway, you experience the tranquil view of the private pool area featuring comfortable lawn chairs, a dining table & chairs, bar, gas grill, outdoor shower, and children’s picnic area enclosed for privacy by a white picket fence.

Entering on the Terrace Level, the cozy media room opens directly onto the covered lanai for relaxing in the sun or shade while enjoying family and friends. There is a queen bedroom and full bath off the media room. The sofa in the media room also serves as a queen size bed, when needed. The double garage is filled with beach chairs, beach wagon, pool toys/floats, and bicycles, plus an extra refrigerator, washer and dryer for your convenience.

The Main Level invites you into a wonderful open and spacious Great Room, Dining Room and Kitchen with Florida views and access to the secluded front covered porch – great for morning coffee. There is a full bath and two bedrooms (queen and bunk/trundle) as well, with access to the grand deck overlooking the pool.

The Upper Level Master bedroom suite (queen and full bath) accesses a small balcony with a view of the pool and Gulf.

La Vida del Sol is spacious both inside and out – re-decorated w/new leather furniture, bedding, and four new TV’s throughout the home

• Media Room with a 47' HD LED TV, Blueray home theater -CD, DVD, mp3, IPod

Wireless internet and cable are provided for your entertainment.

We are located on a quiet residential street just off Hwy 30A at Seacrest Beach in White's Gulfview Estates, which is a “stone’s throw” west of trendy Alys Beach. Only 100 steps from the house, you’ll find the private beach boardwalk used exclusively for White's Gulfview residents.

La Vida del Sol is perfect for vacationing with family and friends. If you're not a beach bum, South Walton is considered a golfer's paradise. There are numerous golf courses in the area. However, if golf isn't you're thing, you can take a morning stroll along the beach or bike, walk or jog the 18-mile path that winds along Scenic 30A passing several lakes and National parks offering gorgeous views of the Gulf. Shopaholics can browse the unique shops and boutiques and foodies will be delighted by the many casual or fine dining choices in nearby Rosemary Beach & Seaside.

Moreover, there is always something going on around the South Walton beaches including markets, craft fairs, free outdoor theatre/concerts, and much more.

Book La Vida del Sol for your “Life in the Sun”!!

Primary renter must be 25 and unfortunately, we do not rent to student groups.

Gabi Osterberger purchased this house in 2006

Why Gabi Osterberger chose Beaches of South Walton

Love the area. Spent most of my childhood summers here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much for the use of your lovely beach home. really like the location, an easy walk to the beach. It was very well equipped and we felt right at home. We really appreciate that we were able to have our dogs with us. We took the downstairs bedroom so our old golden retriever did not have to climb the stairs. When she did come up to the second floor she preferred the front steps. Wish we could have enjoyed the pool area more, its a wonderful area but we stayed at the beach most of the time. Loved the front porch for morning coffee. The weather was good, only one afternoon of rain. A lot of clouds but it didn't keep us off the beach. We hope to make a return visit.

GREAT HOUSE! GREAT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5

The house was ready and clean upon our arrival and was the perfect set up for our group! The pool area is such a great place to hang out in the evenings and the extra fridge in the garage is such a bonus! There were plenty of beach towels and having to not bring our chairs and umbrella was so nice. The house is nicely furnished and had everything we needed! I also want to mention how fabulous this beach area is - not crowded, gorgeous white sand and the prettiest water we have ever seen in Florida! Our girls rode the bicycles to Seaside one day for lunch and said the beach there was packed and people were 6 rows deep on the beach. So glad we were not dealing with that at our beach! Gabi was wonderful to work with and answered all my questions quickly. We will be back!

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We had 10 people in the house. My younger son is 19 and he took a friend. We set them up in the basement. My older son, his wife and their 4 children, ages 5,4, 2 and 8 months were with us also. My husband and I rounded out the group.

The house is decorated nicely but still feels very comfortable. The kitchen is the best equipped of any rental I have ever used. We like to cook and there was plenty to work with for the casual beach meals we like to make. The grill is large and very easy to work.

The pool was a nice size and there is a great set up out there with a table, a kids table and many chairs and chaise lounges.

The beach was accessed easily within a few minutes. The location was located within pretty easy driving of grocery, seafood market and restaurants.

I would definitely rent this property again.

Felt like home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for four nights, with four young children including twin infants. The house was perfect for what we needed. It was clean and comfortable. Not trendy and museum like. I wasn't afraid of my kids being kids. The pool area was absolutely what we hoped it would be. Being heated is I really hope this home is available in the future. Great location with a comfortable and warm house.

Perfect location and set up for multi family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with 3 families, 11 people total, and LOVED everything about this house, the location, the proximity to beach, the private pool and more. The way the home is set up on 3 levels offered privacy to each family. The kitchen was perfectly spacious with great counter top space for preparing and eating. The living area had comfortable seating. Out by the pool they had great chaise lounges and Adirondack chairs. I could go on and on. I think our absolute favorite part of the house is the location. Old Seacrest is a great area and the short, easy walk to the beach was tremendous. I enjoyed walking down some mornings with my coffee because it was that close. Gabi and Susan were a dream to work with. Very responsive, helpful in answering questions and more. They made sure we had everything we needed and more. I highly recommend.
