Mer Sea is a directly gulf-front three bedroom/three bath luxury penthouse condominium at fabulous High Pointe Beach Resort, perfectly located right next to all the dining, shopping, and activities in Rosemary Beach and very near Alys Beach as well. No expense has been spared in creating the area's premier luxury condominium. Occupying the entire west end of the top (fourth) floor of the gulf front building, the views are totally private from every room, offering sweeping ocean panoramas and year-round sunsets over the gulf. Sophisticated and chic, Mer Sea is at the same time casual, very children-friendly, and certain to delight everyone in your party.

With nearly 2000 square feet of interior living area and a spacious, 750 square foot wrap-around terrace encircling the villa, there is ample room for up to a maximum of 8-12 guests. There are two gulf view master suites, each one with a king bed, a 42 inch LG LED TV, and direct terrace access. Each also has an ensuite all-travertine full bath with oversize showers, 8' twin vanities with granite countertops, separate water closets and dressing areas, and either a Synchrony garden tub or exercise area with fitness bike. The third bedroom has two full-size beds and two twins (bunks) for a total of 4 beds in this room, as well as an ensuite full bath (conveniently also hallway accessible) and 32 inch LED TV. There is a comfortable queen sofabed in a semi-private living area alcove, yielding total sleeping accommodations for up to twelve. Mer Sea is ideal for two small families, one extended family, or 2-4 couples to share.

Because of its spaciousness, intelligent floorplan, and quiet top floor location, Mer Sea truly has more the feel of a 'home in the sky' than an ordinary condominium. The airy ambiance of a European coastal villa is enhanced by carefree design elements such as travertine and Italian tile flooring throughout, all with stunning blue ocean vistas as the perfect backdrop.


A long list of amenities includes a fantastic contemporary kitchen with 10' curved bar, 6 LED TVs (in each of the 3 bedrooms, both master baths, and a 60 inch Samsung LED TV in the living room), Blu-Ray DVD players and movie library with selections for all ages, free wireless high speed internet, high end furnishings, Synchrony garden tub, exercise area with stationary bicycle, large bedrooms and bathrooms, and ensuite laundry room. A separate closet contains a crib and a highchair. Access to the condo is via a modern spacious elevator; for the disabled, there are absolutely no steps either to the condo or to the pool and gulf-front restaurant (although there is also a wide exterior staircase for those wishing to walk). Parking for three cars. Free daily beach service: set-up of 2 chairs, small table, and umbrella on the beach right in front of Mer Sea included, March 1-Nov 1. Four additional commercial quality beach chairs for guests' use are located inside Mer Sea.


The only true full-service gulf front resort in the area, High Pointe features a fantastic 7000 square foot tropical lagoon pool with islands and waterfalls, separate kiddie pool, large (20 ft) heated spa, lighted clay tennis courts, shuffleboard, outdoor grilling area, children's playground, a fabulous gulf front bar and grill, and of course 600 feet of private, pristine beach. Uniformed, professional, CPR-trained attendents service our beach March 1-October 31. Rosemary Beach, renowned for all its dining, shopping, biking, and entertainment opportunities, is only a very short stroll (500 feet) to the east, as is blossoming Alys Beach to the west. High Pointe is a tropically landscaped, very low density resort with a gated entrance from Florida Scenic 30A, and its facilities are for the exclusive private use of the guests.


Making a reservation is very easy, with most credit cards accepted and an excellent and very professional management service who leave your key right at the property (no need to 'check in'), and who can also assist you during your stay. Contact us any time if you have questions. (Just click 'Ask Owner a Question')


We also have two beach homes at nearby Seaside, Florida. Each has a private pool and they are both very close to the beach and the town.

AVALON is an 8 bedroom/5 bath luxury home sleeping up to 20. It can be seen on VRBO .com by entering listing number 102965.

SEA VOUS PLAY is a 5 bedroom/4 bath home accommodating 14. It is VRBO .com listing number 435629.

Thank you to all our wonderful guests ..... for making Mer Sea the Beaches of South Walton's most popular vacation condominium in 6 of the past 7 years!

                                                                            Thanks a million for a wonderful week in your amazing condo! You have such a beautiful place (we’re jealous!!), the location is perfect, the balcony was terrific & the stunning view was mesmerizing! We’ll never forget it! We found everything we needed in your well-stocked kitchen and I’d like to commend the great job by the cleaning service... everything was spotless. We loved our first visit to the Panhandle, mostly due to having Mer Sea as our home base. We feel very fortunate to have been your guests and hope to return some day.

We hope you’ll consider Mer Sea your home away from home and come back again! Every year brings new dining spots and entertaining activities to Rosemary and Alys Beaches, and we add new amenities to Mer Sea as well to make each vacation feel new.

                                                                            Great place to stay

                                                                            This was our second time at High Pointe and first time to stay at Mer Sea. The views from the condo were just beautiful. The unit was very clean, beds comfortable, plenty of room for the 8 of us. Love this location- less crowded than further down 30a and easy walk to Rosemary Beach and Alys Beach. Crabby Steve’s is convenient for a quick bite and drinks by the beach. Will definitely come back!

                                                                            Owner's Response:

                                                                            We appreciate that so much, Michelle! We’re delighted you enjoyed your stay at Mer Sea. New restaurants and shops are opening all the time at Rosemary and Alys Beaches, so you’ll have new adventures when you come back. Thank you for being our valued guest!

                                                                            Perfect Location, Perfect Condo, Awesome Views!

                                                                            Beach FansAtlanta, Georgia, USA

                                                                            Mer Sea exceeded our every expectation! Your condo is beautifully designed and furnished, roomy, comfortable, and has everything you could ever want for a relaxing, carefree vacation. The views of the water, beach, and sunsets from the balcony (it's huge!) are simply jaw-dropping. And the location is perfect, very easily walkable (even for our little ones) to all the fun and excitement of both Rosemary & Alys Beaches. No one wanted to leave! Thanks so much for thinking of everything, we will definitely be back next year.

                                                                            Owner's Response:
